I just hope that Apple can design their own chips to be superior to those offered "off the shelf". It would seem to me that designing their own chips will ensure that they can keep the OS running only on Apple hardware, barring another Palm fiasco. I'm concerned about what Google is up to. Apple is a fantastic company, and I'll stick with them through thick and thin, but I have a sinking feeling that they aren't throwing everything they have at their products and...
So the answer would be "no". I appreciate your explanation. I was just somehow hoping that Apple might be making changes that would translate into an improved iWeb.
So they are playing around with HTML5. Does this mean that they'll provide us an update to iWeb that offers the same improvements? iWeb didn't get an upgrade this time around. Many of you likely don't use iWeb, but I do and I'd like to see iWeb updated with these HMTL5 changes.
I've gone through the search and couldn't find a solution to this, so I'm hoping someone on here knows something about system-wide file extensions. I personally loathe file extensions. I know that OS X is smart enough all on its own to know that a PNG is a PNG. I don't need to see that extension. I always go through and click CMD+I and then click "Hide Extension". This is tedious and I have to do this every single time I create a file or save a file. Is there a...
What's the hold up? Is iTunes 10 having issues even before they release it? It's 4:40 p.m. here on the west coast and they still haven't released the software. Just once, I'd love to get that software update prompt while Steve is talking about the software. It'd make sense that we be able to actually use the stuff he's talking about rather than watching it online and wondering how it'll work. I also know that the patented answer is, "Patience.", but there's got to...
Programmer, yes we have new Mac Pro's (or will have in August). I've got some more reading to do regarding the new one, and I'm really eyeballing the 12 cores. Grand Central Dispatch makes the more cores all the better for multithreaded apps, which I'm guessing we'll see more and more of as apps refresh. I have to wait for the new ones to show up on Apple's website (they still have the old ones on the Apple Store) before I can spec one out the way I want it. It will be...
Seems I'll be waiting until August to go try one of these new ones out. 12 cores isn't bad.
Programmer, you make many good points, and I agree that incremental updates for a workhorse like the Mac Pro is probably ill-advised. I pointed out in a prior post that Apple hasn't updated the Mac Pro in 18 months. That's a lifetime in the technology field. I'll have a problem with Apple releasing a Mac Pro that isn't substantially more powerful (more cores, not more GHz), with faster RAM. The USB3 and faster Firewire are great, but the much lesser machines will get...
brucep, your post does amuse me. It reminds me of my cousin, who's a LAN Admin for our local library system (he oversees over 4000 terminals). He always says the same thing. Why do you need more than a single core, at 1 GHz, with 512 MB of RAM? The problem with people like that is that they don't do a single thing with HD video footage, much less try to actually work with it in a timeframe that doesn't make you want to pull your hair out. That said, is my Mac Pro...
I hope I'm pleasantly surprised as well. You can see what I'm running in my signature. My Mac Pro can't run in 64-bit mode, and I'm living with it, even though there's a RAM hit for 32-bit. I fully expect Apple to step up their game and create the most powerful Mac Pro's ever. Just once in my life, I'd like to not get sh!t from my friends that all run faster PC's. I loathe the Windows OS, and won't ever go back, and I'm not about to buy a hackintosh because that's...
