  • Apple kept iMessage off Android to lock users in to iOS

    Is this suppose to show any thing??? I mean, isn’t Apple supposed to build advantages for its own platform, to make its users come back?
    iMessage being exclusive doesn’t even prevent people to message across platforms, nor does it prevent people to export old messages.

  • Apple posts record $89.6B in Q2 revenue on back of across-the-board growth

    All those stimulus checks going to electronics. 
    well, it doesn’t seem like it. The Americas was the region with least growth, significantly bellow the average. The rest of the world was responsible for more than 70% of the revenue growth

  • 'M1X' MacBook Pro set to arrive in 'several weeks'

    "high-end M1 chips"
    seems weird that Apple would take 1 year to ship new MacBook Pro with just some new version of the M1, when it already has new CPU cores ready to use...
    Just imagine that the new A15 iPhone SoC will almost certainly have better single core performance than the M1 in many tests.
    Not weird at all - the new CPU architecture always arrives with the new A series SoC, though it probably takes some time to adapt that technology to a new series of M SoC(s).

    Meanwhile, M1x is already built on the A14 architecture and apparently has been ready to ship since June.

    M2 should be built on the new A15 technology, and should replace M1 - and Apple may rejigger the core counts and configurations. We should hear more about improvements to the A15's architecture on Tuesday.
    that is just your assumption!
    There is nothing that stops Apple from having a new architecture ready for both kinds of SoC - they basically did that last year, one month between launches is nothing. It’s not like Apple doesn’t have the resources to develop more than one SoC at the same time, they did it a few times with the X series SoC.
    And there is no proof that they actually made a M1X, or thought about using a M1X, it could have been an M2X all along.

    The weird part is launching a new Mac CPU that is already outdated by a new iPhone SoC, where some software will have better performance on an iPhone than on a brand new high end MacBook Pro.

  • Tile bemoans Apple AirTags launch, raises antitrust concerns

    Funny how Samsung is already selling a similar product and service and Tile didn’t complain! Is Apple forbidden to compete with Samsung?

  • Lawsuit blames Apple's 'less safe' FaceTime implementation for fatal traffic accident

    mknelson said:
    How would Apple differentiate between the driver and a passenger using Facetime safely?
    It can’t without some serious artificial intelligence, nor can any other cameraphone. THat is why Apple has only implemented this with Carplay - contrary to what is assumed this has actually been implemented

    He responds calmly and thoroughly to your weird claim and you jump at him by calling his comment an assumption without any awareness of your own assumption that started it all. You then double down by making bold, unsubstantiated assumptions that there is nothing stopping Apple from doing doing everything you want. Amazing! I hope we see a proper M2 this year, as well, but there's no need to set yourself for disappointment.
    Did I make any statement about the future as a fact? I didn’t! "could have" implies possibility not certainty! And as such why the hell do you say "without any awareness"?
    There is nothing that stops Apple from launching more than one SoC at the same time - the past demonstrates such capability. That capability is a fact, while the existence of a M1X, M2 or M2X are not facts, are assumptions.

  • Patreon doesn't pay Apple's 30% App Store commission, and its CEO isn't sure why not

    I don’t think it’s that hard to understand why! Patreon is also used for different purposes that are not related with digital content to be consumed on a device.

  • Jony Ive's exit from Apple caused by company culture changes and growing frustration

    The problem with this analysis is that it misses that Ive was great at Apple because he had Jobs own vision as a counter weight, they fed on each other ideas.
    After Jobs there was no one to fill that void.

    I have little confidence in this trend to attempt to turn classics into shows given what they did to Foundation.
    yeah! Foundation was extremely disappointing... For all mankind is 100 times better

  • Adding water cooling to the Mac Studio does surprisingly little

    hmlongco said:
    Based on earlier tests I'm pretty sure that Apple is throttling the system regardless of chip temperature. There's no reason in the world why a M1 Max in a MBP should run at the same speed as a M1 Max in a Studio with a desktop-class cooling system and when not limited by battery life... but it does.
    There is no throttling, it runs at the same speed because the M1 Max doesn’t consume like a desktop class processor. That is its nature, it isn’t designed to behave like Intel CPUs with turbo boosts, with high clock speeds.
