  • With 'iPhone 8,' Apple & Samsung to dominate 2017 OLED supply, squeezing out others

    I love that picture of the bendable LG display, as if the display itself is enough. Never any mention of how all the other tech need to support the display is NOT bendable.

    Never mind the fact that no one wants this.

    "Look at our achievement that we've dumped money into! You can bend the display!"

    "...why?"

  • Rumor: Apple's new iPad Pros could debut next week, with or without an event

    ronmg said:
    Apple has foresaken the Mac Pro, not updating it in over 3 years. Not to mention the Mac mini & iMacs. They've also discontinued their cinema displays & airport & time capsule. All they seem to be really focusing on now are their iOS devices. Their annual iPhone updates are huge events. And they seem to be touting their iPads as laptop replacements. So I seriously doubt Apple will just quietly drop the new iPad pros(including a new 10.5" bezel-less model) without holding a huge event. No way. The event will either be at the end of March or on April 4th as recently rumored. 
    My God, the whining!! The majority of 'pro' users can get a 27" 5K iMac fully loaded with 4 GHz i7, 32 GB Ram, 1 TB Flash, and 4 GB Video for $3,600, add multiple screens and external hard drives, and be just fine. Apple doesn't care about the EXTREME pro users because there are maybe a thousand of those in the US - hardly enough to dedicate development time toward. So buy a fully loaded iMac or move to Windows.
    Yeah, stop the whining.
    Buy the almost 2 year old overpriced hardware or switch to windows.

    Your "fully loaded" iMac was last updated in october of 2015 yet it still costs the same.
    The GPU in that machine is a joke, the CPU is fifth gen, not even sixth, we are at seven right now, flash is overpriced as usual and forget futureproof because it doesn't even have usb-c yet.

    Clearly Apple doesn't give a shit about not even mid level pro users any more or they would update their fucking desktops at least every year.

    So don't give people crap about complaining because they have every reason to.
    And for your suggestion to move to windows I have done that because I need a workstation and this is beyond anything apple sells right now.
    BUT I would love to come back to OSX.

    At the end of the day, the people who complain are Apple lovers, not haters.
    There is nothing wrong with the existing Mac's to choose from, regardless of when they were last updated.

  • Apple board member Al Gore sells $29.5M of company stock

    He's broke, he thought he'd be collecting carbon tax royalties by now.

  • Apple developing ARM chip for Mac to handle low-power functionality

    Yeah, I can see ARM + Intel hybrids being the first step. I'm sure 80% of daily tasks could be powered by ARM, extending battery life dramatically. Intel proc could kick in when CPU demand gets to a certain point.

    Much like they've been doing for years with Integrated + Discrete GPUs.
