    Just like you were so wrong about Apple getting NFC in their phones. 

    I have zero recollection of [@]jungnark[/@]'s comments in that subject, but I've been very positive on NFC for years on this site. Not that that means anything but I say the Mac will be better than ever and not removed from Apple's product line in 3 years time.

    Haven't you said this for the last three years. NFC on phones is all but dead. Apple is moving on with other tech.


     


    SolipsismX. You're one of my favorite people to read on here as you mostly say really well thought out thought's. I know you have been positive as I've read most of your stuff on here for a long while now.


     


    Just like I agree with what you just said about the Mac.

    I appreciate that, but I don't think that previous incorrect speculation should be used to counter new speculation (even though I have to assume I've also been guilty of it).

    I understand that it can be tough to ignore such comments when some posters state opinions about an unknowable future as fact without an in-depth argument to support their position. Case in point, I remember [@]EricTheHalfBee[/@] was against NFC and for BT, and while we disagreed on the topic he always supported his argument well.

    :-) They should buy Microsoft though.

     

    I no longer believe the fact that it's the 30th Mac logo is important. It's all about retina. They wanted to show something zoomed in, and we wouldn't know it was zoomed in unless we'd seen it before. "It's been way too long" refers both to how long it's been that Macs haven't been Retina, and a non-Retina pixel being too long. Or maybe the 30th is important, because that specifies how long they've been non-Retina.

    Looks like a finger above a color interactive touchscreen trackpad with haptic feedback and 3d spacial tracking.

    It's a TV.

     

    It's been way too long since the TV as we know it and the experience hasn't change too much.

     

    And maybe we don't know nothing about it because they are building it in a big igloo in the North Pole!

    This is one your quotes "The tide is changing and Apple is not as dominate as it once was."

    How's that working for Sammy. Oh and let's see how many iOS devices will be sold in the Dec qtr.

    So instead of admitting that you were mistaken, you point out something we have to wait 3 months to see. Nice deflecting.

    No. No TV. Refreshes only.

    I saw a finger too, but I thought new physical interface beyond keyboard, mouse, maybe the new iPad as an interactive trackpad.

    I'm not so sure I'd be betting on that 70-80 million number (which I'm sure is the implication).

     

    If Apple sells 60 million iPhones I'd be happy... but I'm thinking in the 65 million range... just because of constricted manufacturing capabilities (imo).

    The Apple TV could be refreshed to 4K.

    I'd love to see that but I have a feeling that won't happen. I will be surprised if it doesn't contain an H.265 HW decoder, even though I don't expect that to be marketed until Apple is getting ready to offer smaller files for a given quality on the iTS.

    What are you talking about? I did admit I was wrong in another thread that's more related to NFC than this topic.

    I was unaware of that, and sincerely apologize.

    I was being a little sarcastic :) There's no way Apple will make a TV. I really doubt it. In that terrain the way to go is the Apple TV and create a standard the TV manufacturers should adopt. You buy your Apple TV (that should be almost like a CF card) and when a hardware update comes you just buy the new one and swap it. Make it possible to download games and convert it in a powerful console where you can play the same games on your iphone, ipad, mac or TV. That should be the way to go, IMHO.
