Can someone please explain how Verizon still insists upon controlling the customer experience? I know they used to be painfully awful in this regard, but am I missing something with what they're doing in regards to controlling the customer experience with say the Droid?
Why? Radio Shack actually sells some pretty decent things now days...like iPods and iPhones. Radio Shack has a really bad rep for crappy products and brands (I'm looking at you Tandy), but there are a lot of Shack locations around America in small towns where that's the local store for electronics. They had been selling other phones for other carriers, but now provide a location in a lot of town where an Apple Store is nowhere around. The location presence means a lot...
Everything you posted contradicts what I've seen with the Core 2010 processors or takes what I said out of context: "Well no again. The GPU is still a second chip mounted along side a CPU chip. This makes the solution a multichip module. The only manufacture with a publicly offered up road map for a x86 SoC as you describe is AMD/ATI." The point is that the graphic chip is on the same module (45nm for the graphics and 32nm for the CPU). I was there for the launch and saw...
There's a lot of misinformation here. First, the Core 2010 series has integrated graphics which offer advantages over the current NVIDIA integrated graphics in the existing MacBook & MacBook Pros. The Intel integrated graphics improves things by first shrinking the die to 45nm. It's then placed on the chip itself making it an SOC. This eliminates bandwidth and control overhead as well as making it more power and heat efficient. People are confusing "discrete...
Thanks, I will. I getting ready to go to Europe for a while, so I'm hoping to buy a 13" for ultra-portability. It's really pretty amazing how convenient those little suckers are. And then I'll want to get a bigger Mac as well, but I need the 13" before my trip. My fear is that as soon as I leave they'll announce the new Core 2010s, and I will have just missed it by days.
It's simple really. I have a MacBook Pro from 2006. It's long since overdue to be replaced. I say this because the cost in lost productivity is greater than the cost of a new, more powerful, MacBook Pro. Now I could buy a Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro today, or wait for a Core 2010 series processor. Apple, if history is any indication, will most likely keep the pricing line-up about the same (maybe a little cheaper). A Core 2010 series is going to run faster *and* more...
I don't know if sales are "stalling" overall, but count me as someone who's growing increasingly impatient waiting for a Core 2010 MacBook Pro. That being said, I'm sure they'll be well worth the wait.
Best post yet on the subject!!! You're right, it doesn't include a growing number of 1st party apps. One in particular is the Apple Remote app. I use this all the time at my house and it used to drive me nuts (before I jailbroke) that I had to relaunch, reconnect, reload the app just to do anything if I had been in another app."You have yet to describe a viable scenario for how this could or should be accomplished." True, but that hasn't been the focus of the debate. ...
Not any longer. I think we have a new winner! Seriously dude, spend a few seconds clicking here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_multitasking You'll learn something today! You might also want to see:http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/contexthttp://dictionary.reference.com/browse/multitasking You'll at least learn how to spell multitasking. We're over here talking about multitasking in the context of being able to run more than one app on the iPhone at the same...
That's got to be the stupidest post I've ever seen here. If you don't know what multitasking is, see:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_multitasking I'd be interested in hearing what your definition is.
