  • Jimmy Iovine reveals what's wrong with streaming music, talks Steve Jobs

    I wish Apple offered an option for Hi-Res files. I know they did in the past, But, now that I have a system that can take advantage of the better sound quality, I'd like to have the option.

  • Why Apple is now focusing on users, not units in Fiscal 2019

    The numbers are not global, but only US based. The dominant mobile device manufactirer globally is Samsung. Apple comes second. Please do not sell this data as general trend. On some markets like in Europe Apple has really marginal presence. It is not about hating, trolling or else so svae yourself those derogatory slogans. This is aboutr marketshare facts: Samsung 28% Apple 26%
    Yes they are. Read the chart again. Those aren't unit sales, they're PROFIT share. Globally Apple crushes the competition in profits.

    "churning out ever-increasing volumes of hardware units" isn't exactly what Apple have been doing for the Mac lately. In many ways they have gone to lengths to sabotage their own ecosystem and user base for macOS over multiple years.

    Seen in that light, the narrative on focusing on users rather than units is not particularly trustworthy. I believe the investors understand that. Cause and Effect!
    I don't feel like you read the editorial.
    I did and it is partly based on inaccuracy, lost history and wishful thinking. 

    Sentences like "At the same time, Apple also worked to adopt Intel chips, USB, and other technologies that ..." is cringeworthy. USB was introduced with the original iMac on System 8.1 in 1998 on a PowerPC based machine, almost 8 years before Intel processors .
    USB was out 2 year PRIOR to Apple's adoption in 1998. It was languishing on the vine in the PC market. His statement was accurate, the syntax may not have been clear to you.

  • AMD details features of Radeon Pro Vega 16, Vega 20 destined for MacBook Pro

    .
    so, forgive my ignorance, if I buy a new MacBook Pro now, then if I buy a Blackmagic eGPU, the breakout box will take over the processing for me. I use Cinema 4D and After Effects most of the time. Also, am I reading it correctly that the Graphics card in the breakout box will be much superior to the new graphic cards being released on the 14th?

    Unless your eGPU is a Vega 56 or 64 it won't be superior to the Vega 20 Mobile, which is a Polaris board.
    Vega 16 and 20 are NOT Polaris based, they are Vega based

  • Alphabet sued over failing to disclose Google+ privacy vulnerability

    There’s no sense to this lawsuit.
    I beg to differ. If I were an investor and a company did not disclose information they KNEW would impact stock, for said reason, I’d sue the bejesus out of them. Not only did they not disclose the breach, they filed investment paperwork saying there was nothing wrong. I’ve never signed up for a lawsuit and I’ve never sued anyone directly, but what they did was wrong, and it showed I. Their share price.
