  • Questionable report claims iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s won't support iOS 13

    Damn! I just upgraded wife & I to SE thinking it'd keep us current for a couple years. Hope this intel's incorrect!

    Well, then I’m glad we upgraded our iPhone 6’s to iPhone 8’s last year.
    That right there (bold text) is enough evidence Apple's naming convention is stupid. Because the "small capital S" is just a lowercase "S" in appearance, you can't use proper grammar when referring to multiple iPhone 6 models without saying/writing like I just did because there is no way to know if I am referring to a single iPhone 6S (the correct way to spell it) or multiple iPhone 6s.

    This was figured out years ago. AFAIK it's "Two iPhones 6S".

  • Intel officials believe that ARM Macs could come as soon as 2020

    I know this will sound crazy but I predict that Apple WILL NOT position the A-series as the low-end product, but instead position the A-series as the "High End" product categories.

    I think it is already happening with the price of iPad Pros. I think they will retain exclusive features compared to Intel Chips, maybe these will be performance (just look at the current iPad A-series, faster than what 92% of portable computers), or battery life, or specialized application support, or maybe it will just be a spec advantage, like more Ram or thinner products. 

    Now this could fail, and I could be 100% wrong about how they position the A-series as premium but I find it very hard to believe they would make a transition unless 1. The A-series is better than Intel. and if that is true then why make it a value low-profit product?? 
    Why are you so adamant about the A-series branding being used in Macs? They don't have the GPU or many other SoC features used in desktop and notebook Macs so why not assume Apple will address this with another ARM-based chip that they designed to meet the needs of their PC line running macOS the same way they designed chips chips for the Apple Watch, AirPods, and controller chips?

    Yep yep yep yep yep.
  • Laurene Powell Jobs' Emerson Collective contributing to $100M funding round for Boom Super...

    "Our interest in boom is driven by its vision to enable greater human connection and more empathetic natural and cultural experience through ecologically conscientious design," advised Emerson Collective managing partner Andy Karsner in a press release.

    That’s some fluffy PR speak there.

    Yeah, then again 100M for a project like this is a pretty small sum.
