I wouldn't go as as far as saying not interested, but I don't see them releasing an iMac with Retina/4K without an 'event' I feel this will be a '.5' upgradenew CPU new graphicsFusion Drive as the base drive.  HDMI 1.4ultra outputsame price. Current units drop in price, significantly if you're an educational buyer (that's the correct timing for Back to School sales).
The Mini:  I see it as being in the same footprint as the Airport Extreme, but 1/2-1/3 the height.  Maybe even a 1/2 cylinder of a Mac Pro, utilizing some of the cooling technologies... or even be passive cooling.    It can't be too small, as it will need 2 antenna to be an effective 802.11ac receiver. I see the superdrive being an add-on.  Apple will forge ahead with the 'all content is streaming content' design.
on the US government side, there is very little corruption on the HCFA/HHS side of the house.  The corruption is in the legislative branch.  Compared to the DoD, Medicare (which has driven coding standards for the last 40 years) has performed miracles without payoffs. pedantry:  physicians go to medical school, not graduate school... if they do go to graduate school (and/or residency), they've spent a lot of time on the beaucracy side of helping patients (most spend their...
agreed. the problem is wide and scary... Doctor's and Health Organizations are at odds with privacy in practice, because it slows down and/or lowers the quality of care in the happy path (no/low risk). Right now... because it's a finanical requirement all health systems have some level of diagnostic/procedure coding standardization, usually done quite manually (look at the jobs being offered to 'Medical Coders').    Internationally, HL7 is considered an ISO standard.   the...
Most of what you want in the ER is lost in what the Insurance company has.   ER staff want your data[in about 10 minutes], not your diagnosis/procedural Hx.  The want your last Angiogram report, and ideally your EKG image, your troponin tests, CK or CK–MB tests, and serum myoglobin test results (to rule in/out a heart attack diagnosis for example).   Insurance companies DON'T want that data (Images, Labs, diagnostic reports) sent to them by the medical orgs, because it's...
seems like it would be a complicated experience... move the device to the next apparatus, enter the weight, and then the device gives you range of motion (which is the same as the iWatch if moving by your hand... or your feet if you're working leg presses where the torso is static) to measure ROM/Acceleration, which would eventually give you the energy expended (calories). and the sensor doesn't need the Iwatch for anything... it appears to be just displaying the results....
not necessarily mutually exclusive. making a curved display is hard... making one that is curved then locked in place by the touch screen protective layer (sapphire) would be easier.And I'm not certain that a rumored  watch display will be sapphire covered. electrical components can be placed in discrete units with flex connectors between, like links in a watch band. and touching a 'bent' display that has a solid base (in place around your wrist) is pretty easy... my...
21M in first year.  $300.   yep you heard it here first.... 6B in revenues in year one.   With Apple's profit margin... that's 2B in net profits.  (30%) If I were spinning a story, that's probably the net numbers you have to sell (2B in profits... because anything less is just noise against 2015 projected earnings) to make a buzz.   Personally, I don't see the $300 given the 'job' a wearable is to do.   $149 to me is about the max I see as pricing point.  So cut profits...
I look at these rumors and go... meh.   If they missed deadlines for WWDC, still means the functionality can be presented in September if ready.If this is just a smoke screen for lowering the stock price... double meh. The major negative that this would impact were any exposed mapping SDKs that could have been built into the system for exposing this to other applications.   Apple loses a couple months of potential 'look at how this app exploits Apple's Map data'    This is...
I think the first pictureshows the millimeter or so that can be 'recovered' If you remove the 3.5mm receptacle.  on an 7.6 mm device... that's serious (15% thinner) space.    I'm not certain that slimmer is better (thinking of the iPhone's number 2 use... camera and number 3 concern... battery life), but it definitely allows that option to be pursued.  And given how people orgasmed over the size/weight changes between the 4s and the 5 (20% thinner),  making an iPhone 6...
