I believe I bought this in early 2007. I'm expecting some form of upgrade of the EFI chip. I've seen Apple issue EFI updates before for my MBP, so I know they can do it. It's just a matter of IF they will do it, and why they haven't done it thus far. I have a feeling I'll be putting this Mac Pro into the crusher. That's kinda sad being that I've got two 3GHz Quad Core Xeons in this thing. It's not what I'd call old or even aging. If it's not going to be supported in...
Solipsism, all I know is that I'm unable to boot into 64 bit mode because of the EFI chip being 32 bit. If Apple is going to make 10.7 a 64 bit cat, I'm going to be having to recycle my Mac Pro for a new one. I'm hoping Apple issues an update that corrects this. Otherwise, there are a lot of people out here with 64 bit CPU's that won't boot the 64 bit kernel simply because of the EFI limitation and will be forced to recycle perfectly good and powerful Mac's or never...
Solipsism, does that mean that Apple will give us all EFI updates so that we can run the 64bit kernel? I'm running a Mac Pro 2,1 with two 3GHz Quad core Xeon chips. While the chips themselves are fully capable of running 64bit, that POS EFI chip they dropped in only runs 32bit. Please tell me that there's a chance Apple will drop an EFI updater for us to upgrade our EFI chips.
rtdunham, I understand where you're going with this, but also understand that if $18 Billion has been spent on top of what they have already invested and we're still having dropped calls, calls that sound like we're talking through a tunnel, tons of dead zones in a decent sized city like Seattle, then where are they spending their money that they are reporting? It certainly isn't going toward something that improves the quality of phone calls, or eliminating dead zone...
And with your proceeds, how about you put up some cell towers that improve coverage. It's obvious AT&T isn't doing anything to improve things.
I'll be watching YouTube videos the entire hour for Choke Hold. I quite frankly get furious at AT&T routinely here in the Puget Sound area because they can't manage to provide adequate coverage and I have dropped calls all the time. Sure they are spending billions on their network. I don't believe them. Their service here sucks. I use AT&T simply because I am forced to use it if I want to use my iPhone unjailbroken. Call it juvenile all you want. Anything that...
I agree. I think this thing needs to be locked down tight. If the Apple security team is getting their @$$e$ handed to them by a 17 year old, how can they expect to handle securing our sensitive data from a serious threat? I think it's time they step up their game or be thrown out the door in disgrace. There has to be a way to lock it down and make it secure. The four digit screen lock is a joke too. I guess Steve is getting soft in his old age. A younger Steve...
I’d personally like to see something like this implemented. Credit Cards, and their magnetic stripe technology are just getting ridiculous now. Here we are with cards that have our names and a 16 (or more) digit number on them that can be swiped for payment or other transaction. Okay, then make it a 64 digit number. I don’t care. The point here is that an iPhone or an iPod Touch is a computer. Use the encryption for the transaction and make sure that the user has to...
Makes you wonder how the current iPhone team in Cupertino feels about being bested by a 17 year old, and whether or not Steve has walked in and wanted them to tell him personally if they value their positions at Apple and precisely what corrective measures will be put in place to ensure that it doesn't happen again? This new position will have to be filled with someone that can handle being screamed at when they fail to a 17 year old. This position will have to be filled...
If Apple really cared about the "media experience" why is it that they don't offer a single movie in 1080p? We're stuck with the lesser size. Until they figure out how to transmit full quality 1080p via the iTunes store, the physical disc is the best way to transport the movie. The new iFrame format doesn't offer any hope as it's going to need to be upscaled as well. If Apple is going to oppose Blu-Ray entirely (as they currently have been), they had better offer...
