Hogwash.  There is still plenty of pent up demand, including myself (upgrading from 4s).  My wallet is just waiting for September to get here.  Force-touch is icing on the cake.   Few iPhone 6 users are going to upgrade to a 6s.  This is true every year, nothing new about that.  But the 6s does have enough new features (not to mention a new CPU, etc.) to get any remaining v3.x & 4.x users (like me) to finally upgrade, as well as a good portion of v5.x users.
Hopefully they'll take the opportunity to include (by today's standards) a decent GPU, like the Cuda/OpenCL capable Quadro K2100M, or GeForce GTX 965M (or better)...  and go back to offering more than one model with a dedicated GPU.   Hello?  Apple?
Why apologize for making an accurate statement? It was a bit harsh, yes, and if it were me I would have omitted the "bigot" part of the the statement, but hipocracy is certainly true. If Tim were truly concerned about diversity he would be respectful of others' religious rights as well as all other human rights. It is also indisputable that Apple does business in countries that murder anyone in the LGBT camp. Where's the outrage from the left for the actual abuses of...
Cook is on the wrong side of this issue.  A law that reinforces the 1st Amendment to the Constitution, which is increasingly under attack, is a good law.  Apple should stay out of politics and social issues, and stick to just making insanely great products.  It never ends well for companies who get distracted away from their core purpose.
The only small (but significant) detail left out of the conversation is that USB can't reach it's full theoretical transfer rate due to signaling and overhead. Real world transfer rates for USB-2 average 40% of maximum, and it's even worse for USB-3.x. In contrast, Thunderbolt, if I remember correctly, can realize up to 90% of its maximum. In numerical terms, the best you'll ever get from: USB-2 is ~200Mbps USB-3 is ~1.8Gbps USB-3.1 is ~3Gbps Compared to...
Exactly. The only reason our company has any Macs is cause they can natively run x86 software and other operating systems.  If Apple were to move off of x86, there would no longer be any reason for us to buy Apple hardware. I agree concerning the dumbing down of MacOS.  It concerns me greatly.  It's already hard enough to run MacOS in our organization, but as more and more basic fuctionality (interoperability with Windows & Linux, i.e. SMB) is broken in each release of...
That's cool, and reasonably measures recent performance, but I've never understood the obsessive attachment to "market share" (a misleading term) numbers.  Other than showing current sales trends, it's meaningless.   I like to see results for active installed base, and see how any recent sales grows that figure.  Heck, I'm still on an iPhone 4s and my kids are still using my original 1st gen iPhone (it still works!).
I can't even begin to express how disgusted I am with Apple over this Mac mini "upgrade". The mini was the only machine they made keeping me on the Mac platform, and now they've neutered it. Absolutely disgusting. Mind boggling disgusting. No, I'm not kidding. Sayonara.
Schmidt is just narcissistic enough to make a run for President! He's lying so well, he could challenge Obama.
