    It hasn't affected me, therefore, it isn't a problem. Perfect logic there.

    Also, please type properly.

  • A very false narrative: Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Apple's iPhone

    Samsung is terrible at software.

    The galaxy s8 still drops frames on some workloads.
    What does that say about samsung.

    Tizen is another example of this.Samsung should keep to hardware Instead of competing with the big boys (google and apple).

  • Apple's new Touch Bar MacBook Pros and the future of Macs

    scottkrk2 said:
    This isn't courage it is arrogance. Too expensive and lack of conventional ports, a compete fail for pro-users, much like the 2013 Mac Pro. In the past I have defended Apple choices but they really have forgotten pro users.
    So was the 2012 macbook pro with retina. And the original macbook air.

    Your point?

  • CEO Tim Cook's compensation cut by $1.5M following Apple's 2016 decline in sales

    Maybe this year they will focuse more on innovation, and making better products, and stay out of politics.  
    Apple has always been in politics.

  • No, Apple did not switch to USB-C on its new MacBook Pros to profit from dongle & adapter sales

    Had apple shipped a usb C cable with the iPhone, these same people will say that they now need an adapter to connected to usb A only computers.

    Also, apple is not the only seller of adapters, ya know.
    common sense will tell you as much,, but I have seen many people who simply never think.
    EG, mac rumors.

  • US Supreme Court greenlights lawsuit over App Store monopoly

    The problem is not with just Apple Store, but censorship. It is not Appe's business what applications should be allowed to run on device (except those that violate some local laws). We purchase that device to own it - not to lease it under strict contract. They can restrict apps on Apple Store, but then do not restrict people from haveing alternative stores. Disclaimers can be in place. I think this backfire of foolish concept of holding manufacturer liable for actions and abuse of others. So California uses that wicked logic and needs to continue along this narrative while it should verify it's foundations in the first place. Any tool in wrong hands could be misused, abused and used for illegal intent as well. No manufacturer should be liable in those cases.
    You may own the device, but you do not own the software on that device.

  • Why Apple should cater to 'serious' gamers - and why it probably won't

    The fact is, Apple should offer top tier performance options, not just for gaming, but for pro developers, video and music. There are many that are willing to pay the premium for Apple's generally superior quality and aesthetics. Apple's lack of leading edge enhancements to it's Mac product line is really inexcusable and embarrassing. I also fear Apple is falling way behind in the "Cloud" market. This market is starting to impact the consumer market, which is where Apple lives and thrives. By ignoring this growing area, they are leaving themselves vulnerable.
    The same features that enable high performance gaming also lend themselves to scientific computing applications. I was under the impression that Jobs was interested in Macs being used for.

    Actually, scientific research is one of the many reasons that many buy it over windows hardware.

    In short terms, you get a refined unix operating system that runs commercial software, along with a flexible unix core.

  • Apple to sell third-party streaming service subscriptions through 'TV' app, report says

    Can someone explain to me why Apple should get a cut of someone else’s subscription revenue? I’d ask the same question of Google or Microsoft or anyone else. Apple doesn’t host the content, they don’t do marketing or promotion. And if these companies could offer their own payment system in-app they would. If the argument is they wouldn’t exist were it not for Apple’s platform then why isn’t Apple taking a cut of every Uber and Lyft transaction?
    Operating expenses.

  • A very false narrative: Microsoft Surface vs Apple iPad, Mac

    I use primarily macs for home and my business but I IT a small medical clinic and bought 6 surface pro3s for electronic medical records. They are nice - the docs fill out the forms with the styluses because it is 3x more efficient then trackpad - but they still have a track pad option. They can use primarily in desktop mode. They are very light and have all day battery life. I think they don't sell as well because they are a premium product and that excludes 80% of the PC market - I mean an i7 in 1.73 lbs form factor! The "new" macbook (which I have and love except for the keyboard and dongles) is 2 lbs for a crappy slow processor. Instead of criticizing Microsoft here - we should be asking the same or more of Apple. An Apple Surface Pro4 clone - iOS/Mac OS, touchpad key cover - full travel keys, iPad Pro pens and 1.5 lbs with magsafe and new and legacy usb and display ports and a OEM complete dock solution with ethernet and tons of ports would sell like absolute hotcakes.

    If you use PCs and haven't tried a Surface Pro4 - do so. Its an incredible piece of engineering and makes iPads redundant (and that may be why Apple won't knock them off).

    I just wish Apple would step up it's Mac game so we can have decent competitive (in HW and price!) products - I mean touchbar - what were they thinking other then - Apple design committee meeting: "well we got to keep appearing innovative and we can't copy so lets try a touch bar - yea that's the ticket". And those new laptop keyboards.. - I use them but just absolutely hate them - it's not growing on me after 2 years and counting..Yeah, because audio and video editors don't use the touch bar at all, right?


    Also, just because it has an i7 doesn't mean its more powerful.
    The i7 in the surface pro is only 15W, while I can get a much better CPU in the 13 RMBP for almost the same price and thunderbolt support.
