  • How to upgrade the RAM on the new 2018 Mac mini

    Confession: im too cack-handed not to screw this up. All those different screws etc. I think id get them muddled up etc. It's a great video though. perhaps watching this at the same time and putting each series of screws clearly on a mat with labels may help!

  • Pundits believe Apple's Jony Ive no longer involved in iPhone, Mac product design [u]

    Makes sense.

    The next iphone - in terms of design - is basically a year late, for technical reasons, but the design will have been locked down since at least september. iOS ovehall is done, Mac - well, they didnt really do that. So yea, what do you think he's doing?  The rumoured on-off car - there must have been a design for that.  The rest, basically is iterative and he has a solid team.

    For what it's worth i dont thnk Ive will ever actaully 'leave' apple. He'll just sort of stay on nominally.

  • Apple axes Wi-Fi router division, apparently signaling the end of AirPort

    Apple cares too much about margins now. They sacrifice the smaller things that were actaully good at making better user experiences for the Apple customer.

  • French retailer claims Nov. 30 shipping ship date for Apple AirPods

    CAVEAT ABOUT HOW RELIABLE THIS IS


    Anybody in France or Belgium will tell you - if you buy products from Fnac, good luck with their predicting shipping dates.  Ive stopped using them (im in France) because on a number of occasions i've done a pre-order and then it's been cancelled by Fnac.

  • Apple CEO Tim Cook urges employees to 'move forward together' in memo on 2016 presidential election

    Seriously?

    When your boss has to tell you to stop arguing over team politics at work,
    that's a clear sign that your team politics are complete immature bullshit.

    Obama was an inexperienced, petty, self-aggrandizing clown, now there's just a different one.
    Grow the fuck up, America.

    In a normal company i'd agree with you, but Apple - being as they are - highly opinionated is in their DNA- design, marketing, policy etc - and with the vocal leadership they have - are probably almost exclusively "Clintonites" - They're the archetypal successful, wealthy, living in the tech bubble, unaffected by the issues Trump stood for.. it'll be a shock to them that not everybody thinks and acts the way they do.
