  • PC component manufacturer clones new Mac Pro case

    What utility is need that isn't provided for off-the-shelf components?
    The Apple design involved actual engineering. Though the aesthetics of the new Mac Pro are indeed compelling, the case and internals were designed together, putting a lot of computational power inside, and and then enclosing it in a case that's designed specifically for those internals and is rigid and creates the right airflow to keep the computational power from burning itself up.

    Suggesting you can take a look-alike case, fill it with off-the shelf components and get as good or better results than the Mac Pro is nonsensical. You can buy a fiberglass Ferrari lookalike car body and put a VW Beetle under it, or Cadillac parts under it or whatever. Your end result is not going to be a Ferrari. You will have a nifty looking VW bug, or a poorly designed, tricked-out overpowered car that throws a rod or flips over when you try to drive it like it's a Ferrari.
    I don't think chassis itself is that complicated, anyone with some proper CNC knowledge could do it, especially for an open standard.

    It's an ATX case with standard parts.  You can leave the board attached to the frame with the new Mac Pro though.

  • iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11 Pro Max have strong showing in new DxOMark audio testing

    At least that's the only Android phone which surpasses the iPhone with 1 point difference.  If you click on the review, both have their advantages.  I'll let it go, certainly not something the Huawei Internet Militia can brag about.

    More fodder for the spec monkeys. 9to5Mac spins this story as a negative because the test results show the 11 Pro Max is worse than last year's XS Max. I have a close friend, an engineer, who studies the spec sheets of everything he intends to purchase, be it an automobile, a toaster, or recently a hot tub. It takes him weeks or months to make a decision based on features vs specs vs price. Style, design, experience apparently don’t enter into the equation much at all. To each his own.

    That statement would make someone immediately jumped on a conclusion which "Apple doesn't care about specs at all."  To be clear, both the processor and the SSD have the best specs to this day, indicates that they're important.  So does the speaker (lead by Huawei with one point, sure.).

    Avon_B7 must be having multiple orgasms right now...
    Probably funded by Huawei.

  • Tim Cook defends choice to pull Hong Kong police monitoring app from App Store

    This is not right, just like the NBA.  But perhaps the greatest evil of them all is the CCP.
