Iphone 5 delayed because Ios5 delayed
Maybe maybe not, IPhone 4 is still state of the art so why the rush?
Ipad2 still has huge production problems. Was about 2 month late when released.
By my recollection it was released early. even if I'm wrong Apple never announced a fixed release schedule for this device. Frankly they have never announced a fixed schedule for anything.
The new Imac: People who ordered custom build SSD imacs has waited 4-6 weeks and still not got the imacs
Actually that does suck.
no macmini refresh for a year
A machine that has NEVER received much attention from Apple.
no macbook air refresh almost a year
No chips to refresh it with either. It amazes me that some people can't take the time to look at Intels public schedules and then figure out what is up from there!!!!!
no macbook refresh almost a year
I'm actually wondering where Apple will go with the MacBook. What ever they do I think it will be repositioned significantly.
no macpro refresh over a year. New intel CPUs released 2 month ago. MacPro usually got newest CPU a couple of month before official release.
Not significant for this machine.
Ipod classic not updated for almost 2 years. There are hard drives that could enable a 320gig model.
Actually I wonder about this one too.
Time capsule has not been updated for years. 3 terra disk available.
Yeah but Time capsule was and is a poor approach to most peoples back up needs. Time Capsule really needs to be refactored.
How shall Apple do if they want to have a release window of 3-4 weeks between products?
On time?: Ipod touch. ipod nano, appleTV take3
If you are doing anything significant there is no such thing as on time. You can count hundreds of companies that have failed over the years due to focusing on schedules that forced nothing new onto their customers.
To be introduced 2011:
AppleTV LCD version
And you know this is a product how?
Ipad3. (they have to wait for 28nm ARM processors)
So you blame Apple for technologies slow move forward? Seriously?
What you seem to mis is that Apple can shrink the current "A" SOC down to 28 or even smaller processes if they really want to. There is this thing called economics you know, that along with available technology dictates what Apple can put into a product at a given price point.
Stupidity: Kill of Xserver Xraid
Well if it isn't selling then it killed off itself. However I really think it is the wrong product for future needs. Xraid looked towards the past not the future.
Apple builds computer centre for 500 million and uses HP servers instead of Xserve/Xraid. I would sell my Apples shares if I find out that they use windows server.
You buy the hardware suitable for the task at hand. Apple is not and never has been a server manufacture. Even XServe wasn't really suitable for a modern data center.
Fun: Steves current obsession is Retina displays and Anoretic computers. Lets hope for an all retina display lineup. From Iphone to 30 inch cinema display.
Again you can hope all you want but Apple can only ship what can be currently manufactured.
Sad: Apple computer is dead. Its all about Ios/Iphone/Ipad. I know that Apple make most of its money from Iphone. The backlash against Apple has started with fAndroid. Using 5 year old CPUs in many computers is not good.
yet Apple has some of the most advanced and capable laptops of any manufacture out there. Further the quality of these machines is reflected in the rapid advancement of sales. AS for this crap about 5 year old CPU's you need to get a grip on reality, Apple can only ship what is available and suitable for the machine at hand.
interesting: Apples exclusive agreement with intel runs out any day now. After that Apple can use AMD/ARM cpus in their lineup.
ARM CPU's in a Mac, I seriously doubt that. Especially if you are up to speed on where AMD is going with its Fusion processors. I'd actually like to see spread out supplier wise and build a serious Mini based on AMD's new Fusion processors as frankly they outperform the Sandy Bridge chips in many ways. Ways that are frankly important to the average Mac user.
Now I'm sure that in your darkness you will find a way to see the use of an AMD chip in a negative sense. Frankly I would see this as a personality defect myself.
