  • Wow, this is daylight robbery I have no problem with the 399 EUR, but T-Mobile really overcharges on the textmessages and overtime minutes. No way I'm going to buy an iPhone right now. Unfortunately this probably means I won't buy one the next t…

  • So Apple is selling people castrated GPUs, but charging full price, just so the can brag with their x1600? Nice move - not. I am no gamer myself, but if I shelled out the money for the MBP expecting to get great gaming performance, I'd be severe…
  • Quote: Originally posted by onlooker I was also reading that the identical games on Mac running under Windows were out performing their Mac OS counterparts. Since the hardware is the same now, this should be no surprise. MS can throw hundrets …

  • There is no sure way to predict if we'll see a special event or not. Apple has done silent updates, ultra-silent updates (the never-acknowledged speed-bump of the G4 minis) and high-key events for disappointing product updates (the intel minis). The…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Anders The big question is how this software relates to open source project that was released a couple of weeks ago. I think it is the same wrapped in Apples own installer. I haven't looked at the license the open …
  • Quote: Originally posted by mark2005 I think DRM is bad from the consumer point of view. My issue is that France is singling out just one instance but not all the others. Like why can't I play DRM-protected WMA music, including subscriptions, o…
  • Quote: Originally posted by faithfulFrank The heck with France. I'd love to see Apple just pull out of France....then you'll hear France do what they do best.....whine. France needs itunes more then Apple needs France. LOL, yeah the d…
  • I am somewhat concerned about the lifetime of this flash buffer. If it is used to more or less constantly write data to it to create a complete copy of the running OS so that sleep and wakeup is seamless, how long will it last? Flash is notorious fo…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Mr. H Wow again! Just what is Apple going to do with all that cash? I remember when their cash pile was very nearly as big as their market cap, which made them vulnerable to hostile take-over bids. Those days are lo…
  • *sigh* I hope it will become a 13.3" PowerBook. Having to deal with the way Apple cripples the iBooks (VGA out *please*, no PCMCIA, substandard GFX chip) would take a lot of the fun out of the form factor.
  • Quote: Originally posted by StealthRider Uhh...you're running the newest and best OS from Apple on that iBook, while the Dell is using a 6-year-old OS- of course it will be faster. Well, in every second post, Apple users claim OS X gets only …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Messiah If anything, the level playing field will probably only accentuate how good Apple is at product design... people will look at the Dell machine and say 'it's got the same bits in it, so why isn't the Dell so wel…
  • Quote: Originally posted by melgross Of course. You can burn your tunes to cd, and lose the DRM, so that you could play it anywhere else. If I have to burn it to a CD to re-rip it afterwards, what is the whole point of buying via download vs. …
  • Quote: Originally posted by macfly i have to disagree with the idea that this is not just a souped up iphoto. its basically like photoshop's bridge. it appears to be a management/workflow app that lets you organize and prune shots quickly. but wh…
  • Not surprisingly, the minimal hardware specifications require a CoreImage-compatible GFX chip. Aperture imho is the stick in Apple's carrot-and-stick strategy to move Adobe towards using Core* in its products. The recommended system specs are min…
  • Quote: Originally posted by WelshDog Will this create trouble for Apple? Particularly the "sold out of" notebook chipsets part? The Apple-Curse [TM]. It never fails. I am starting to believe that AMD, IBM and FreeScale bribed Apple to turn to…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Ra To think that Apple has copied things from Longhorn is a little shortsighted. Imagine, if Apple were to copy something from Longhorn, that would mean they didn't start working on it UNTIL AFTER it was publicly disp…
