    I was expecting more....but I'm a 'glass half empty' sort of fella

    I was hoping for a colour choice from the new iPods, but so of the new features are cool.

    I think the whining (about notebooks being crap) is the fact that there is so much demand for it that Apple has no time to actually test the product.

    It's a good thing that they offer free replacements for those that find defects actual defects in the machines. Usually the first batch is not so perfect, and that goes for all computer manufacturers.

    I have 2 macbooks in for repair (they have been being repaired for just under 2 weeks, both have multiple problems) I have spoken to apple on the phone several times to try and get them replaced and they flat out refuse.

    ... which is a better display in any way you care to name, except vertical resolution with the 30", than the 23" or 30" ACDs.

    Just like every other vendor, they realized it was pretty much impossible to implement. Use Windows at 150% mode and you'll see what I mean; *everything* is horribly broken. There will be pixel-doubled Macs within the next year.

    The prosumer market is tiny. Everyone in the country who is not dirt-poor or a Luddite has a phone. There are a few hundred thousand prosumers at most. You don't make money engineering expensive, cutting-edge products just for that market.

    Merging? Some iOS interface features are being added to Lion. They are not "merging." Lion is not losing any capabilities (other than Rosetta).

    You are saying Final Cut X is meh before anyone has even seen it? :


    There is no margin whatsoever in commodity desktop hardware; it's THE most price-sensitive part of the PC market. Apple doesn't do things where it can't generate high margins. It's not a charity, it's a business.

    What capabilities are missing from Lion as a result of iOS interface influence?

    How is the Magic Trackpad "painful?" Mine is my favorite input device ever by a huge margin. My only problem with it is that Apple took about 3 years too long to release it. What would you do to make it not "painful?"


    What benefits would 64-bit provide to the user, other than a very small performance improvement? iLife applications' GUI threads are not using more than 4 GB of RAM.

    Are you in favor of the prosumer, or the elitist "pro" who thinks their app is debased by a consumer feature? Prosumers use Facebook and (especially) Flickr. Since Apple already built the feature for iPhoto, it costs them nothing to throw it into Aperture.

    How is easier app installation hurting you?

    NOW you're on to something.Let's expand on that ;)

    Where is the video out from the airport going to go ? The TV of course!


    Why not just make a Mini type box with 802.11n with DVI/HDMI/S-Video and Digital/Analog out ports.Connect that to the tv then stream from your computer or the movie store.While we're at it toss a hefty HD in the mini for recording.

    It's much more convenient too.Just sit on the couch and surf Front Row for movies then buy it and send it to the tv.POW! one step..

    Apple IS about ease of use..

    ease of use à la apple = buy/download a movie in the itunes movie store and stream it via airport av from your mac to a tv. or take a subscription to a tv show (like Lost or Prison Break) and let iTunes automatically download each new episode (via RSS) to your hard drive and than stream it to your tv whenever you want.

    I don't think recording is the future.

    Apple can design better than that. It will probably not look like that. Why? Because they do not want it to look exactly as the Nano as it would confuse people. That design does not make sense to me.

    I think and hope they will make a new Newton, more a Apple PDA than a iPod with phone capabilities.

    It is time for Apple to release a phone, but not just an iPod Phone. Look at the patent Apple made some days ago, it looks more like a PDA/Smartphone than phone which is great.

    "Empathy" is a four-letter word in America, sadly.
    I must be wearing my RED-WHITE-Blue boxers today or something, but how can you make a comment like that.

    The noun meaning for empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.

    Do you honestly believe that Americans do not practice this.

    Are we a perfect people. No, but who is. I think at the end of the day we do more good than bad.

    Because this one you can actually buy - ColorWare do custom colourisation of iPods, computers, accessories, all sorts of things.

    No, not like that at all. That one hurts my eyes. I mean there's one on there that's like the one I commented on, but same color clickwheel. Like this:

    They might as well add a Core 2 Duo Mac Book Pro too.
    Please CAN IT!

    CAN IT!

    My god we cant talk about anything on this board without the core 2 duo macbook/pro crew coming to mess up a thread THAT HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH LAPTOP UPDATES

    ok, so...I wrote this really really really long message, and by the time I had submited it, I had been logged out, and so I lost the whole message. So I'm going to re-write it, but in a much shorter version

    Basically I listed all the Ideas I had for the Apple Smartphone. What made the message so long was that I also explained why I wanted each type of feature. I'm going to try and stay away from doing that this time and just list the features but keep in mind that I agree that a lot of these things are a stretch.

    - first, call it iMobile instead of iPhone
    - have a full size screen that is a touchscreen.
    - have the screen slide up to reveal the keyboard
    - have atleast 30 gigs of storage.
    - iSight that can rotate. For taking images and having the screen as a viewer, and having the iSight pointed at you for video conferencing
    - Use the EvDO technology that the sony treo700 uses that is supposed to be "near broadband speeds"

    - iPod interface
    - mobile iTunes Store, able to download music, shows, and movies on the go.
    - ability to record sounds and voices
    - ability to record video
    - mobile versions of Mail, Address Book, Calender, iPhoto (displaying photos you take or upload) and able to sync perfectly
    - mobile Safari
    - mobile stickies (more like a notepad type feature)
    - bluetooth ( using headsets, but also using the phone as a remote for keynote and the soon to be released iTV
    - radio tuner ( i know this is pretty simple, but why not?)
    - GPS like system, or atleast a built in mobile google maps? (possibly even mobile google earth
    -mobile iChat (since iChat can connect to aim and other services)
    - mobile widgets (my sidekick has a lot of programs that you can download for it, most of them being a lot more powerful than most widgets) imagine having the "find the cheapest gas station" widget, get our your phone, bring it up, put in the zip code of wherever you happen to be, see where the cheapest place to get gas is.
    - the ability to remote desktop into your mac. (would have to install software on your mac that would create connection for you) gives you the ability just to browse through you desktop's files, if you forgot a file that you need and lets you download it on to your phone.
    - Also, lets you use the phone as a bluetooth modem for your computer.

    I'm sure there is more..but I'll stop there

    Actually, I'm starting to question the description of this rendition. It reads:
    The click-wheel portion of the device reportedly slides down to reveal a traditional numeric dial-pad underneath.
    IMO, having the click-wheel slide down with a keypad underneath is a less favorable design compared to (for example), Chocolate by LG, where the body of the phone slides up revealing a second layer of the phone with the keypad.

    Am I the only one who thinks this is a non-story? You want to raise my eyebrows?... show me a time that Greenpeace, PITA or any of those other wack-o groups behaves like a bunch of grown-ups and doesn't get thrown out. Here's a headline:

    ah yes. just like they did with the eMac back in the day. that was popular... you know, not having a product to ship for weeks.

    Well, assuming they announced and shipped about the same time as the PC companies, there's really not that much to complain about. Don't forget, they did it with the MPB as well.

    And if people are really unwilling to wait a couple weeks, nothing is stopping them from buying the yonah models.

    Make sure your homeowner's polices are up to date. I predict this new MBA will burst into flames when Turbo Boost kicks in.

    The TDPs are around the same as with previous gen, or possibly even less (the TDP of 320M is unknown). Also, Turbo Boost will only be activated if the thermals allow that. If your CPU is already running at 90�C, then Turbo most likely won't kick in.

    I doubt SB will make MBA run noticeably hotter.

    Do you're self a favour and ask for your pac code when the phon is released. A free upgrade is pretty much to be expected, if you dont ask for the pac code their unlikely to give you any other freebies.

    You should always ask for the pac code and then wait for their retention team to give you a call back

    What's a pac code?

    Ok. So it's lack of compromise that some are keen to avoid.

    Understandable. That's if the next MBA has the 3000HD in it of course. Who's knows what cooking in Apple' R&D dungeon.

    I just know from being a nerd myself, how much some can get hung up on such technical points.

    It's just that core group of people seem to want a MBA to able to gene sequence the complete human genome before lunchtime before they'll buy one.

    I on the other hand would like it to be very portable and do the stuff I do on my 3 yr old iMac, surf, email, BBC iPlayer some light video editing and photo storage. Won't be getting one for at least 6 months anyway so maybe open CL will be on a Intel graphics chip by then.

    I still don't understand why nobody has managed to make a viable alternative to Microsoft Office, esp. Microsoft Excel. Apple's iWork is fine, but clearly not enough and of course there is no Windows version. Google is too obsessed with the cloud and ad thing and didn't make Google Docs a local app for Windows / Mac / Smartphones with Dropbox like cloud capabilities. :(

    So Microsoft can continue to be fed with its Windows / Office monopolies for the foreseeable future.

    because you don't take down an established company going head to head with one of their core products. your product will have to be a lot better to compete, and it will be too expensive.

    if you want to win you need to wait for the tech cycle to change and take advantage of it. like apple did with the PC tech cycle giving way to smaller more mobile devices. give it a few years and they may start to replace PC's, but most likely will just live in unison

    MS Office has so much features that no one person uses all of them, but the entire user base uses all the features.

    Woohoo! 3GHz here we come. As was mentioned before, though, a mid-sized tower priced at the iMac level (but upgradable) would be the final logical step in the Apple product line. That would leave Woodcrest to the high end MacPro with its quad configuration.

    Try 4Ghz...Anandtech in their review (http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2795&p=18) overclocked their X6800 to a stable 4Ghz. :eek:

    If you're like me, you don't have your Mac right next to your TV. Not only would I have to string a DVI/HDMI cable aaaall the way across the room, I would also have to get an equally long digital audio cable. Probably end up costing about the same as a video AirPort Express (if they keep the prices the same) but with the added hassle of getting those cables across the room.

    This would be a lot less expensive than buying a Mac mini, especially if you already have a powerful desktop just waiting to play some HD videos...

    I see your point but I do not yet see HD over 802.11g. Maybe with some new codex and some decoding on the device, but I still don't think so. Come on Apple make a believer out of me.
