  • This thread reminded me of my favorite roomba review. This review predated the Scooba. Thought I'd share it: This thing works great and it also scares the bejesus out of my 1 year old child. The other day i set roomba loose in my basement to t…
  • Which future Intel CPUs are dual-processor friendly (besides the Xeon)? What Intel quad (dual-dualcore) would likely have similar performance as the G5 2.5 GHz quad? I am trying to gauge how long until the MacIntel powermac will take to catch …
  • Quote: Originally posted by PB Even so, this is similar to what happened with the introduction of the G5. There were two single processor systems then. By June 2004, they went all dual (although the first non high end dual at 1.8 GHz appeared in …
  • I stopped by the Genius bar at my local Apple Store this weekand and asked this very question. I was told that the Quad uses a different motherboard. Also, the quad is liquid cooled, so I am not how high of a clock speed you could run with 2 d…
  • They bought NeXT, but they also got Steve back in that deal. Apple is one of the few companies with vision. Apple is an innovation leader and other companies follow their lead. They may not always do things first, but they do things with styl…

  • Why wouldn't Apple follow the BTO PC marketing scheme (ala Dell). As shippable quantities of new higher MHz CPUs become available offer them immediately as an increased price (2.2 GHz +$200 or so). Then, periodically as Rev.(s) come out or the ov…

  • If it is a hack, Apple has to come out tomorrow and say they were hacked. Imagine the scene on Monday if the release specs are lower than the leaked/hacked specs. Apple's stock would tank and Steve would be standing there saying "They are still pr…
  • Here is my take on the Apple/AMD situation: Apple has been stuck with Motorola's slow breakthroughs in processor development. Motorola is considering selling the chip fabrication part of their company. AMD is also strapped for cash, but…
