 No, I've not look at any hacks to make this work.To be perfectly honest, I'll not do anything about 4k until Apple come out with a 4k display.  Looking at the 4k displays some people have at work now, coupled with a Windows machine, I'm not impressed enough to want to ditch my two Thunderbolt displays for a non-Apple 4k monitor. I was kind of aware of the fact that when 4k comes along from Apple I would probably have to switch of the Mac as well, since as well as the...
Gah! Only for late 2013 MBP's, and I've got an early 2013! Might be what finally makes me pull the trigger and buy a new Mac Pro.
I once saw an old bloke drop his pipe into the urinal while he was taking a piss. I was somewhat appalled when he picked it out, put it straight back into his mouth and continued smoking away. There's worse things to drop in the urinal than your phone!
 I'm pretty shocked they didn't cobble together a 64-bit processor (or is this one?) Seems like the sort of thing they would blatantly copy after banging on about how pointless it is if Apple do it.
When a crash comes, the companies that actually make money tend to hold up OK. Companies like Facebook, with a P/E of 110 will struggle.   Zynga with a market cap of $4.22bn despite never having posted a profit will struggle. I heard someone suggest a Spotify IPO could value them at $24bn.  They are losing money. Amazon with a P/E of 590.  How can that be justified?  They can't keep growing forever...... Apple with a P/E of 13 and actual profits will be OK. Microsoft with...
There's another tech stock crash coming...........
I didn't know that, thanks. It's not a great workaround, but it is a workaround of sorts.
 I hope they open up Keychain a bit more.  I think iCloud Keychain is both tremendous and useless. I signed up for a Kickstarter account, and given this weekends news I fortunately had Safari create a password for me.  It works great, until you download the Kickstarter app and can't log into it, because you don't know the password. Had the same problem with my Nest thermostat and their app this weekend. If they can allow authorized apps to see the passwords in iCloud...
 I saw a commercial from Microsoft the other day, highlighting the line of products that all run Windows 8, banging on about the Nokia phone with 41MP camera (I think it's 41) etc. and I just didn't have any reaction whatsoever.  Even when I switched to Macs in 2005, I still had some reaction to what Microsoft were doing, either intrigue, dislike, or, in the case of Xbox360 being impressed, but in the past couple of years I have literally no reaction to them anymore.  To...
 The article doesn't say anything about salaries. I'm saying that in my experience of hiring software engineers in the Valley, Apple are not paying in line with companies they are competing with for talent.
