WWDC and the future of APPLE - Page 3

post #81 of 437
Well Kormac if you hit just %50 accuracy here I'll be happy. Many people won't understand the implications of having good QT support of MPEG2 TS or AVC yet but both are huge. A PCI ATSC Tuner card and QT MPEG2 TS support would be half the battle of getting a Mac based HD PVR. El Gato are you listening??

I would like to see Apple get into more non-computer devices. If QT gets them there faster then great. I'm expecting big things for WWDC. It's really quiet which means good things because Apple seems to be garding Tiger info like a "Tiger". If the iMac isn't announced on tuesday then a WWDC announcement sounds plausible. And that may corroborate Kormac's statement that the next iMac utilizes new Apple tech.

Less than 10 days to paydirt.

What is "get's"?
Attention Internet Users!

"it's" contraction of "it is"
"its" possessive form of the pronoun "it".

It's shameful how grammar on the Internet is losing its accuracy.

Those are typos. A typo is when one knows how to spell the word, but simply hits the wrong key by mistake. They happen to everyone from time to time, including me.

What I was objecting to was not a typo, but yet another egregious example of this insane trend of people intentionally placing apostrophes in the middle of words. It's not even a possessive/plural issue. Gets is a verb, for Christ's sake! If I intentionally spelled the word gets as "get?s" or "get&s" or "get!s", would that be OK? Would that be a "typo" too? There is absolutely no difference between intentionally inserting an apostrophe and intentionally inserting any other random character.

And yes Mods, I will keep doing this in the context of the open forum, since the problem is so appallingly widespread that pointing it out as it happens helps the hundreds who read it just as much as the original poster.

Thank's for helping me fix thi's stoopid error. j/k

No actually that was a typo. I make them frequently because I take my fingers off or homerow. I'm well aware of when to use an apostrophe and when not to. However tell that to my fingers though. Sometimes they just seem to want to write what they feel comfortable with.

I'm seriously considering switching to Dvorak. It quite literally pains me to realize everytime I type that the freaking inventor of "QWERTY" designed it to slow typing down. Well in my case he's pretty damn successful. I've never been able to crack 30WPM without a bunch of errors. We can't all be Kickahas'.

Be careful about this. I will often read a post and someone will show incorrect word usage in one sentence but then get it correct in the next. It is only a problem if the person writing doesn't understand and continually makes the same mistake. One likely reason why you see apostrophe used in an incorrect manner is simply muscle memory during typing. Your fingers get so used to hitting the succession of key such as "'s" that you will inadvertently add it to words that should not contain an apostrophe. That's why checking your typing is good practice.

Well, these are existing products. I might even have one myself (or even more than one), no need to wait till Apple to invent.
post #88 of 437
I think the best hint is given by Apple, not kormac. Why does Apple insists of giving the Airport Express a big name like "Airport Express + AirTunes?" (and why not give a name to the wireless USB printing?) The answer must be fairly clear - AirTunes will be the key of Apple product, where in the future many products from Apple will be AirTunes compatible. I am going to bet one of them is iPod.

I never said what they were doing are typos. Some might have been. Most were probably mental laziness or carelessness. Some might have actually not learned to spell it correctly.

If no one gets on your back over your all-too-human typos, where do you get off being so "unnecessarily rude" over apostrophes to the point of being obsessive about it (and always off-topic)? Even if an honest-to-God illiterate person does post, we are here to discuss what is being said, not how well it is written or typed.

Any misspellings or typos are the business of the poster, short of trollish, blatantly annoying typing styles. A simple PM lets you inform them and enlighten them on the nuances of English without smugly, condescendingly insulting them in front of the entire site. I'm not PMing you because you deserve being scolded in public, if you can call my posts that. You've made many flagrantly insulting posts before, with no regard to the other person, which really negate your otherwise excellent posts. Mods have made comments to you but seem to give you a very long leash since your posts are otherwise valuable and informative.

Let it slide.

I want to think of you as "that guy that knows his stuff and has good ideas about the Mac" and not "that frigging apostrophe guy"...

John, I know I come across very brashly on this subject, but the destruction of the English language seems to be the main effect of the Internet. It just blows my mind that so many people do this thing with apostrophes everywhere. Seriously, even a few years ago you NEVER saw this, even from grade schoolers, but now it's absolutely rampant.

Thanks for the compliment and I'll try to continue to earn it, though "that friggin apostrophe guy" actually sounds pretty cool.

OK, show's over. Back on topic. I renew my call to Kormac to explain how he knows what he knows without it being insider info or NDA restricted.

Hmmm, maybe he's an Iowa State computer science student who realizes that a bunch of vague references to Asian tech production and a badly faked Korean accent would give his posts instant credibility on AI.

The English language is not set in stone. Language is always fluid and you should learn to accept this fact.

Hello. I am back.

There will be much more things in OS X 10.4 than I can say. And you will see the more things in the semminar.

For the summary of OS X10.4 part, this is what I say.

- Provide support for upcoming products.:

- Such as PCI Express, faster PCI-X, Multi-core CPU
- Firewire based Home network
- New Wi-Fi based Home Entertainment system
- New Numa-like hardware architecture in th future
- Support of multi-core CPU base.

- Provide support for new and improved integraded service with .Mac

- The use of .Mac will be expanded beyond Mac platform
- You will see more service in .Mac in coming months.
- .Mac will support Home Network
- .Mac will be the key for personal Device.


- Provide support for Enterprise system with Clustering technology

Yup. 10.3 added networking over FireWire, but it is kind of limited at the moment.

But.

Toss in IPv6, realize that all the new HD capable home equipment will be FireWire capable *AND* most likely IPv6 ready, and... ta-freakin-da.

Program your DVD-R, your HDTV, your 7.2 stereo, what have you, over the home FireWire network.

Mix in the new QuickTime codecs for HD, and it starts to get interesting.

Mix in IEEE 802.15.3 ("Wireless FireWire") at 480Mbps and it gets really interesting.

I'm really liking the idea of a Java-centric QT. Apple's Cocoa Java integration ensures that it'd work well on OS X, and then it could run on - and play well with - every Java-enabled device. That's a lot of devices. It hasn't exactly crystallized in my mind how this would happen, but the glimpses I'm seeing look really promising.

And remember, QuickTime contains the code for FairPlay. QuickTime everywhere implies FairPlay everywhere. I can't get too excited about that, not being a fan of DRM, but as far as the platform goes it means that Apple media - both home-generated stuff from iApps and stuff purchased from e.g. the iTunes Music Store - will be widely sharable and playable at Apple's discretion. It's an interesting card for Apple to play. This is why Apple is trumpeting QT's adoption now, because if it's news now that it's widely adopted, then it's really big news that it's about to explode.

Now, let's goto Macintosh announcement.

There will be only one Mac will be announced during WWDC.

It is new iMac class Macintosh.

When I say iMac class Macintosh, it mean the change is quiet huge.

I expect following.

- We will see new cube like case but Display can be attached or seperate by
User's choice at anytime.

- It will have 130nm G5 with liquid cooling system similar to Shuttle's XPC.

shuttle XPC with Ice Heatpipe

- One PCI Express slot for Graphic Card upgrade. No PCI-X

- Super Drive standard, future system will have dual-layer driver.

- Mini DVI port , such as you can find in 12 inch PowerBook G4.

This is one of the key feature, and here is why.

1) Mini DVI can be used as DVI port for seperate VGA monitor.

Apple Mini-DVI to VGA Adapter

- Not much interesting.

2)Mini DVI can be used as composite & S-video connector.

Apple Mini-DVI to Video Adapter

- Hmmm.... Not much more than any other port! \

3) Mini DVI can be used as DVI Port.

Apple Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter

It is supposed to connect DVI port since it is Mini DVI

- Hmmm... What the hell this guy try to tell?

Well. Do you know how to connect your set-top box to your DTV, such as HDTV?

Here is much more detailed explanation about DTV.

Digital Television to the Max-DTV Page.


Here is the key words.

For the VGA cable

Quote:
ALOG INTERFACES: Virtually all data and graphics grade video projectors sold over the last two decades have offered a RGB (red-green-blue) style video input. This could be used with a external computer for displaying computer graphics output to an audience or with a external line doubler to displaying enhanced video. RGB connectors come in two different common forms. The first is a standard VGA connector common with virtually every PC, desktop or laptop computer. Cables using VGA connectors employ a single 15 pin connector with a multi-conductor cable to carry the RGB and sync signals from the source (i.e., line doubler or PC) to the display (e.g., video projector). While VGA connections are high bandwidth and are suitable for HDTV use, the relative high-loss cable typically used generally limits the cable length to about 10 feet. The second type of RGB connection uses separate coax cables, each approximately 0.2 inch in diameter, to carry the RGB plus vertical and horizontal sync. signals. Generally this involves 5 discrete coax cables each terminated with a BNC type connector. Harnesses are available where the five discrete coax cables are physically bundled together for convenience. BNC connectors are widely used for professional applications. RGB video cables using such discrete coax cables terminated with BNC connectors are relatively low loss and work well for extended cable runs (e.g., typically available in cable lengths up to 50 feet (or more). Also adapter cables are readily available with a VGA connector on one end and discrete BNC terminated connectors on the other end. This allows the flexibility to interconnect DTV receivers and video projectors, or monitors, that uses a VGA style connector for one device with the other device using BNC connectors. Several HDTV manufactures ( e.g., RCA, Mitsubishi, Sharp, etc.) have adopted RGB style, either in the form of VGA or discrete BNC connections, for the interface between the projector/monitor and the DTV receiver box.


While RGB is technically one type of component video interface, the term 'component video' in the world of consumer DTV/HDTV equipment usually refers to an altogether different type of video interface. With the DTV/HDTV 'Component Video' format the luminance (i.e., black and white video) information is separated from the chromance (color) information. The chromance information is then further separated into two differential signals where the red, green, blue components are added and subtracted from one another. Component video uses three external output connectors (using standard phono, or RCA style connectors). Toshiba introduced component video to the consumer video world with their first generation DVD players and a projection TV set using compatible component interface. While this original version introduced by Toshiba for their DVD players and TVs is not compatible with HDTV standards, Toshiba now offers an enhanced version, suitable for HDTV and a number of other DTV manufactures have also adopted compatible component video interfaces.. The various consumer DTV manufactures use a variety of terms to describe the component video interfaces. The common terms are: component video, HD-Colorstream (Toshiba), YCrCb, YPbPr or YPrPb. All of these terms refer to an identical type of component video interface. Some DTV manufacturers (e.g., Mitsubishi) have decided to support both RGB as well as component video interfaces on their DTV monitors/projectors.


The bottom line is there are two incompatible types of analog interfaces between DTV projectors/monitors and DTV set top receiver boxes. Therefore the consumer must be very careful with mixing brands for their DTV projectors/monitors and the DTV set top receiver boxes. The set top receiver box must support an output interface compatible with the projector/monitor input. To further complicate the mixing and matching of set top receiver boxes and DTVs some DTV manufactures also provide an additional interface between the receiver and the DTV projector/monitor that allows the receiver to control the settings of the DTV projector/monitor. One specific example is Mitsubishi whose first generation DTV projectors used an RGB interface that required their own receiver be used to control the projector/monitor. However the new second generation Mitsubishi projectors will interface with DTV set top receiver boxs using RBG, component video or the Mitsubishi box that uses RGB plus control interfaces. The table above of DTV projectors/monitors lists the type of DTV interface(s) supported. Note that some DTV sets support both RGB/VGA and Component Video interfaces. Likewise some HDTV set top boxes also support both types of interfaces. However be certain to check this out before you make your purchase. Monster Cable and Current Design have announced transcoder boxes to convert conponent video to RGB but these are expected to be rather expensive. However a low cost VGA input to component video output transcoder box (model 9A60) is now available from Audio Authority (phone 800-322-8346). RCA has also introduced a similar VGA to component transcoder box at a similar price. Finally Key Digital Systems is also introducing a similar converter for $119. These converts are just the thing for owners of projection TVs with only component video inputs for HDTV to connect to the already available RCA DTC-100 DTV/DirecTV receiver's VGA output or to a PC.


I frequently receive inquiries about how to hook up the RCA DTC100 VGA output (that uses a standard computer style HD15 15-pin VGA connector) to a HDTV RGB input that uses 5 separate 'RCA style' sockets found on certain HDTV ready projectors (such as the Mitsubishi projectors). Many large computer stores carry VGA to RGB cables that use male BNC connectors for the RGB end of the cable (5 connectors: Red - Blue - Green - Horizontal Sync. - Vertical Sync.). You can use one of these cables plus purchase (at Radio Shack) five BNC female to RCA male adapters. Another alternative is to purchase a cable that directly goes from VGA to RGB using RCA connectors. Such a cable is available from www.bettercables.com for $89. They offer several configurations of 'VGA Breakout Cables' so be certain to pick the correct one for your setup (typically HD15 male to 5 RCA). Another source for a wide variety of cables is A2Z Cables. Their produce line includes VGA to RCA (5 wire - RGB) and HD15 connector to RCA 3 wire component video cables. Their prices range from about $33 to $45 for 6 ft. to 20 ft. cables.

-"Several HDTV manufactures ( e.g., RCA, Mitsubishi, Sharp, etc.) have adopted RGB style, either in the form of VGA or discrete BNC connections, for the interface between the projector/monitor and the DTV receiver box."

If VGA cable support Component signal, it is HDTV connector.

For the DVI Cable

Quote:


DIGITAL INTERFACES: As if the two incompatible types of analog interfaces for HDTV set top receivers -to- HDTV monitors/projectors weren't confusing enough to the less technically inclined consumer, digital interfaces have start appearing on a few consumer products as of late 2001 and will become even more widespread during 2002. DirecTV, Dish Network, a number of consumer electronics manufacturers and several movie studios that combined forces to back the introduction of a high speed Digital Visual Interface (DVI) along with high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) on their planned HDTV products. This new interface will provide the means for movie studios to control the distribution of high definition programming and will provide the means to prevent HD copies from being made. The DVI/HDCP enabled products to be introduced by the end of 2002 were planned to include a new generation of DirecTV and Dish Network HD set top receiver boxes however the pending merger of these two companies could impact their plans for new receivers in 2002. Also several manufacturers of HDTV monitors/projectors have announced plans to provide new models with DVI/HDCP inputs. Some cable TV boxes may also be providing DVI/HDCP interfaces to connect to HDTV monitors/projectors but the alternative type of digital interface described below seem more likely. It is too early to determine what this means to all of the current generation of HDTV monitors/projectors that only support analog HDTV video inputs, but one outcome may be an inability to view certain satellite delivered HD programming on these existing sets. The most likely candidate is where the movie studios will insist on the use of the copy protection provisions of HDCP would be pay-per-view movies but it can not be ruled out that some movies presented on HBO or Showtime would also be affected. At this point the DVI/HDCP discussions do not apply to over-the-air broadcast HDTV programming. Click here for the press release on the subject. Also note that DVI is only applicable to the interface between a HDTV receiver box and the display and it is not suitable for connecting a HDTV receiver to a HD capable VCR (such as the new D-VHS VCRs). A second type of digital interface based on the IEEE 1394 standard and combined with a different content protection scheme (called DTCP or 5C) is the leading competitor to DVI/HDCP and could be used fro a more extensive range of applications, such as from a HDTV set top receiver box to digital VCR interface. The IEEE-1394 interface currently goes under various trade names such as iLink and Firewire but the addition of the content protection provisions will only be provided in DTV/HDTV consumer produces being introduced starting in late 2001 (such as JVC's new D-VHS VCR) and with many more products during 2002. In November 2001 the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA is an associated whose members are the major consumer electronics manufactures) announced the an industry-wide name "DTVLink" and logo to be used with future digital television products (including monitors/projectors, digital VCRs, cable TV boxes, HDTV set top receiver boxes, etc.) that support an IEEE-1394 digital interface combined with DTCP anti-piracy protection provisions. This is intended to help consumers identify which products have compatible digital interfaces for receiving, viewing and recording DTV and HDTV material. The DVI/HDCP vs. DTVLink (IEEE 1394 with DTCP) competition is expected to heat up in some areas such as for the interface from cable TV boxes to monitors/projectors where the backers of both types of digital interfaces are promoting their solution. Some manufacturers, such as Thomson (RCA brand name) plan to release TV monitors/projectors during 2002 that have both the DVI/HDCP and DTVLink digital video interfaces.

-"DirecTV, Dish Network, a number of consumer electronics manufacturers and several movie studios that combined forces to back the introduction of a high speed Digital Visual Interface (DVI) along with high-bandwidth digital content protection (HDCP) on their planned HDTV products."-

So DVI is the connector for HDTV.

And this has some meaning, isn't it?

I think they are sticking with the 130nm process is because they are only catching up on XServe orders do to the supply of 90nm chips which is still on the low side. So I think they are just going to super cool the 130nm's until they have enough supply for the consumer and pro lines. This is assuming Kormac is right but I like the reasons he is giving and it looks like Apple is out to change the world again.

So all of us hoping to get a 3 chip HD cam for less than $2000 will be disappointed

It will not be the silver bullet that will kill off the JVC.



It's still hard to get a decent 3 chip DV camera today for $2k. HDV is out of the question right now at that price point.

I know plenty of people who will rush to the Sony provided it's a step up from the current JVC models. I doubt Sony even hits $4k. I say they're targetting $5k for their 3 chip.

I'm most interested in seeing how Panasonic handles this over the next few years. They are conspicuously absent from the HDV hoopla. Perhaps they have plans to meet this market with a flavor of low cost DVCPRO HD. That would be sweet but I know i'm dreamin'

I think we have Sub $2k HDV in a couple of years hopefully with 3 ccds. That would really spur a lot of HD porn...oops did I say that out loud? No seriously it would be a boon for HD production.


If you are who you are, check with Canon!


To Amorph; Can you find some of my writing 2~3 year ago? I want to show something from the past. Not many people know how long does it take real innovated product can be made, including me.

I am emerging from the depths of my local library, where I am studying for the bar exam, to catch some fresh air in anticipation of WWDC and its announcements.

What a nice surprise! Mandricard and Kormac, my good old friends, are back in full force. It's like the good old times. [Edit: MacGregor is back too. Yay!]

With great anticipation,

Imagine something like the now defunct Sony LISSA, throw in high speed wireless and video and and you're ready to go. Rendezvous the whole lot and bundle in phone call handling, lighting control and have a tablet PC device as a glorified remote wi-fi control. Get the pricing right and take over the world.

I don't get the significance of the mini-DVI port. The 12" PowerBook has it already and the other two PowerBooks have full DVI ports. The current iMac has a mini-VGA port so it is only natural they move to mini-DVI with such a big update. I enjoy kormac's posts but come on, he has been talking about a HDTV iMac for two years now.

To Escher: Hello!!! It has been a such a long time since we talked!

I still remember your hope for smaller Notbook!

How is your 12inch iBook or was Powebook? Do you wish to see the smaller one ?

O.K. here is special hint for you only.

Do you remember my i****v2 ? Do you still belive me ?

If you do, your whish will come this year!

It was planned to show it at WWDC but it was delayed until Keynote at
Fall CES show. But if Steve show it at WWDC, I will not be surprized.

I will talk about this in future.

I hope to see more of your Note.

So, kormac77, what will this "new portable device" be? A Power-iPod that runs QT7? Or something completely new?
