I think we're seeing a paradigm shift here.   For decades it was, more so in the PC sector still: Buy a box that will last many years and just keep swapping the parts out that need to be upgraded. The MacPro "cheese grater" was a godsend in that regard. Never before was it so easy and affordable to keep a top of the line machine competitive with newer offerings. New GPU, new CPU, more RAM, more storage, you could just swap it out like in a PC. Only the mainboard...
My take on this is as follows: The mini introduced a new form factor, apart from size, that will, according to all we have heard so far, will be rolled into the bigger iPad sometime this year. The mini is also known to have cannibalized a lot (a LOT) of iPad sales, which was something Apple did not anticipate. I therefore think it's unlikely, if also very regrettable, that Apple will introduce a drastically revamped iPad along with an even more attractive iPad mini...
Mid 2010 15" MacBook Pro, 2.66GHz, 4GB of RAM. Very unsatisfied with the following: loading speed of projects with large amounts of photos in it. Flickr integration is a nightmare. Does not retain sorting order upon sync, creates duplicates, crashes often if network connection is interrupted, brings forth an endless stream of error messages upon network interruption, generally less stable than what I am used to (especially since 3.3.). Features I'd like: lens distortion...
A new release of Aperture is overdue, whether Apple wants it or not. The current version is underfeatured, slow, buggy and lacking consistency. In fact it is probably the worst piece of Apple software at the moment.
You may want to fix the title of the article to "OS X 10.8.3 beta supports AMD Radeon HD 7000 drivers, hinting at Apple's new Mac Pro", because Mac OS X has supported the Radeon 7000 graphics card since sometime in 2002.
Never believe any statistic unless you faked it yourself. The way these numbers are fluctuating, one could think that people in the States change their handset every 3 months. I don't believe any of this projected crap.
Looking forward to the day when there will no longer be the question whether your player/plugin is able to play the video you're trying to watch. Digital video is like one of the most heterogenous contents in IT and it's a bloody nightmare still. A viable standard has to be found and implemented, across all platforms, if they want to digitize TV and get John Doe to buy his movies online anytime soon. iTunes is leading the way at the moment, but that doesn't mean that this...
It's funny how the competition still has utterly cryptic product names. Look at HP for example, or Samsung, especially with their TVs. Sure, there is some kind of system behind the naming scheme, but for John Doe, it's just a nightmare of letters and numbers.
Considering it is safe to assume that a lot of people who are getting the iPad 3 (aka the new iPad) now will be replacing it again in 2 years time, unless you can already benefit from LTE from where you are, you likely will see very little benefit. This is especially true for us in Europe. In Switzerland, the first LTE cells will go online only later this year (and most likely will be incompatible with the current iPads). So really, the screen and faster CPU/GPU is the...
As others have pointed out, several factors have to be taken into consideration. When I said "in a few years", I was thinking a decade, which is what manufacturers for mobile equipment quote (www.sistech.com for example). If solar power was, as Maury claims, such an unprofitable business for those who own the plants, there wouldn't be a worldwide boom and Maury would be out of business by now. Clearly, subsidies and premium prices for "green" power are a big factor in...
