Yeah. MacTripper is probably an alias for Tekstud.
Right. The big question is what GPU will they use? Will all MacBook Pros have a discrete GPU chip?
Yep, us early adopters will get it and everyone else will see it in buses and airports. Kinda like the iPhone. There will probably be commercials (like the iPhone) that demonstrates how much easier it makes things. After two years it will be half the price and everyone will have one. Beyond replacing TVs and paper, hopefully we'll see some RTS games and not just tower defense.
I heard they are going to be able to support the $10 per month data plan by broadcasting to the cell tower in the unregulated visible light spectrum. There may be some slight reception issues indoors, but it will fall back to wifi.
I think most of us would agree that accuracy is important. No background apps means more powerful apps. There are limited resources on the iPhone. If it could run background apps, no app could push the system because it would bog down. I think ease of suspending and resuming apps along with push notifications is good enough. Background apps also drain power. It is not a computer. It will work as a phone in the background. That is good enough. Maybe when we see 2...
Of course if they watch you purchase something then follow you, it doesn't matter what kind of bag or backpack it is in.
It's not as bad, but playing favorites isn't a good way to encourage an ecosystem around Android.
We've been hearing two numbers floating around: $999 and $600. Carrier subsidies are about $400 for the iPhone. So it would make sense that the tablet will be $999 or $600 with a two year contract.
Samsung has been a long time supplier for Apple. Most of the parts in the iPhone are Samsung components.Apple recently redesigned the white macbook, so it is unlikely an entirely new design is coming to replace it. Most likely the tablet is a new category of device that is not designed to run heavy-weight apps.BTW, it has been shown that Apple fans usually prefer a Samsung product if they can't find a similar product from Apple
Yeah, the hardware specs can only rival a phone that will soon be replaced by a new model... Hardware is always a moving target. Basically just a win for the component manufacturers. Google needs to differentiate with the software side. They are certainly second to Apple, but they seem to be a distant second.Apple may have a surprise on the component side though with a PASemi designed chip. If their PowerPC chip is an example of what they can do with ARM, then there...
