Do you mean, "What day does it split", or, "What day does it hit $1 trillion"? I think bets are in order on the latter.
I was reading Broadwell will essentially just be another energy improvement - will Skylake actually be a processor speed/power improvement? I probably won't be able to wait to get a new laptop until then anyway, though.
Wasn't the Pippin their failed video game console 20 years ago?
There was no iPod Touch release last year... I don't recall any iPod releases last year. So they could do an early release this year. You're right, though, it's more likely they'll stick to the pattern of autumn releases for music items. I was just commenting that it seems to be the one thing that hasn't been rumoured yet (not counting a grocery store chain).
Maybe new iPods? I would appreciate it - a new iPod Touch with specs matching the 5S, because I don't use a cell phone but I like the rest of it...
Exactly - I'm not against the idea of a "tricorder" but the right people need to be using them and need to know what to do with the information. If you need your testosterone or vitamin D levels checked, go to a doctor. Don't check them daily at home because it's probably going to show you a meaningless trend and you might not know what to do with the information you're getting anyway. And while I've never actually watched Star Trek, I'm guessing it wasn't the random...
This sounds like an absolutely terrible idea that will just help make a world of hypochondriacs. I can see no reason to need to track something like vitamin D or testosterone on a daily basis. Inflammation markers are completely nonspecific as well. Only the fertility tracker might make sense.
I never denied that he was chosen for a reason and I didn't say he's not doing a good job. You used the word "fiction" and gave a silly scenario, implying that mdriftmeyer was lying about what he said; but all he said in that post was that Oppenheimer's not the most friendly guy, and I was trying to say that he'd likely know whether that's true. If your point was not "mdriftmeyer is making this up", then it wasn't clear. I guess from what you posted to me that you were...
You might want to park your skepticism at the door and consider the fact he might actually know what he's talking about. There are actually ex-Apple and ex-NextStep employees and other people who ran Apple retailers, etc., on these boards. He most likely knows exactly what he's talking about. So unless you can prove you have a stronger connection to Apple than he does, you're being rude.
Even a maxed out Mac Pro is around $10,000, isn't it? (Assuming no peripherals like extra screens and what-not.) What would a $33,000 computer even be? When I think about it, there just seems to be a huge gap between pro computers and IBM's Watson, with nothing in between I know of.
