  • 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?? 
    Agreed. And if the power is indeed better than the Intel chips, i would expect low volume niche machines like the new Mac Pro to be the test bed for these chips and both prove themselves and scale to consumers via that model. 
  • Apple's 'modular' Mac Pro design may mean units that connect like Lego bricks

    I like the old-school tube transistors instead of anything new or fancy, Just give me a Commodore Vic 20 that relies on glass tube transistors that I can replace as they burn out and runs the newest Adobe suite of tools and ill be a happy camper.
  • Worries about Apple Watch EKG false positives are inflammatory nonsense

    Yeah I saw this video a couple of days ago and was surprised that it was by The Verge, not that they are great, but the video is so preposterous. They can do better than this.
    People keeping an eye on their heart health for preventive purposes is classified as a harmful? Such a dumb video that I’m surprised that even for clickbait The Verge would run it.
  • New iPad Pro ad hammers home Apple's ongoing laptop replacement theme

    Optional mouse support for apps and developers who need them and a better file system, and its half way there.
    At Apple the hardware team is running circles around the software team. 
  • Gartner, IDC were both wildly wrong in guessing Apple's Q4 Mac shipments

    EVENTUALLY, possibly as soon as iOS 13, these folks are going to HAVE to count iPads as computers. I have a desktop machine, but the devices i use most are my 12.9 iPad Pro with a keyboard on a desk and my 9.7 iPad in bed. 
    Sure i occasionally NEED to get on my desktop, but i can get 90% done on my iPads. And hopefully with iOS 13 it can be 99%
    WHat is a computer? Anything that has a computer chip and can get what you need done done
