    Your type of apathy in the long term will do more harm than good.

    There is a big difference between voluntarily and involuntarily giving out personal information and that's what was at stake here.

    Apple admitted error - it's ok - you can admit it might not have been in the best interest of consumers too. Apple won't come and take your iPhone away.

    Well said, but as Apple has already stated they are not collecting this information for other use than speeding up location. Considering the fact that cases against Apple are already underway, I trust the information they released today to be accurate. It would be foolish to mislead customers while proceedings have started.

    Many people that cried outrage are actually ignoring more obvious privacy issues: twitter, foursquare and facebook status updates, and eg. the announcement today that TomTom actually actively sells location and speed data from drivers to the police, to aid in the strategic placement of speed cameras.

    The thing I like least about this rumor is that it specifies only a 320GB harddrive.

    The current configs (quad g5) were released in October of last year, in that time harddrive capacities have increased well beyond that (320) small number.

    The new machines will get 500GB drives I have to believe.

    :confused:
    320 would be the standard. you could upgrade to a terabyte if there are still two HDD bays.

    The amount of people who never bought an Apple product, but will still log-on to blast away at anything Apple is really quite amusing. ;)

    The amount of people who never bought a Microsoft product, but will still log-on to blast away at anything Microsoft is really quite amusing. ;)


    Unfortunately, it goes both ways.

    Back to reality: Apple wil use Xeon 51xx (5150 and 5160) in the MacPro, and Core 2 Duo (Merom) in the iMac and MBP to be announced at the WWDC. The top iMac config will get a boost to 2.33GHz. In addition, Apple will use the price-drops for the Yonah to upgrade the Core Solo mini to Core Duo.


    I disagree. I think Apple will use Core 2 Duo (Conroe) in the iMac, and Merom in the MBP. The iMac could hold a G5, why not Conroe?

    On top of that, you'll notice that a 2.16 GHz Conroe costs $70 less than the 1.83 GHz Yonah that's in the iMac now, $70 less than a 2 GHz Merom, and $200 less than a 2.16 GHz Merom, increasing Apple's profit margins on the iMac considerably or allowing a price drop- plus they can advertise it as a desktop processor.

    In fact, even if Conroe was too hot (which I highly doubt, since the iMac had a G5), a 2.16 GHz Conroe underclocked to 2 GHz still saves $70 over a 2 GHz Merom.

    Umm... You do realise clock speed is not everything don't you?
    I hope you don't think a C2D is better then a SB Core i5

    True.

    Clock for clock the Arrandales are faster than C2D and Sandy Bridge is clock for clock faster than the Arrandales.

    So a 1.4 Sandy Bridge will be quite a bit faster than than a 1.4 C2D within the same power envelope.

    I certainly agree that the Core duo will be the lastest, latest.

    yet what about it will be so valuable to the user, that has jsut purchased one.
    That he should return her new unit.

    Does it bake cookies, ? no.
    Produce less heat? no , it wont really. and if it does it will be small differences in possible either direction. Cooler or hotter.

    So, I see the only real difference with CPU changes as being limited to a small boost in hertz. Minor at best.

    In the iMac realm there will be little other changes, most are limited to the Macpro area etc.

    And returning it will cost time and effort waiting for the next iMac which may not appear for some time.

    Finally Google admits Jobs was right about fragmentation and recognises that to fight Apple it must become Apple. But it won't admit it. Prepare for lots of "closed is open and open is closed" stuff. Plus: the state of emergency justifying this closure is temporary: sort of like in Syria 50 years ago.

    You know, I am truly sorry for the idealists in the open source community. They deserve better.

    I'm sure I'm not going to hate it, it's probably gonna be fabulous, but it's not an innovation as Steve advertises it. In fact, not a single thing they showed about Leopard up to now is an innovation. Everything already exists somehow. I'm not complaining about the new features of the OS, but about how they present them. They're all (hopefully) improved versions of existing stuff!!


    True, I guess we can only hope that the top secret stuff is top secret for a reason (or because it wasn't ready for the Keynote)

    Here's hoping you're right. I think including 512 MB of RAM standard would be a bit of a slap in the face if Apple is releasing these supposedly "advanced" machines. What kind of advanced PowerMac has only 512 MB of RAM standard? ;) :cool:

    It would be ridiculous if it came with just 512 mb's of ram...

    Steve Jobs-"The New Octa-Core Mac Pro with 512 mb's of ram" It just doesn't fit...

    I do not know the cause, it appears scientists do not either. Since no one appears to know, what could you possibly have expected from me?

    Well, then why do expect us to explain it to you? Why do you expect us to justify who we are? We are who we are and we have just as much to offer the world as you do. We have families, talents and love just like anyone else. Love is rare. Why would you deny that to two adults who truly care about each other? To me, that's sick and disgusting. Keep your religion to yourself. Wallow in it's BS as much as you want. But keep it out of our lives.

    i talked to a friend of mine thats a GM of a bestbuy store. He or his regional manager didnt know why or who put the stop sell order
    on the ipads this morning. At 6pm they still didnt know why.
    The email only said dont sell new in the box ipad 2s, sell through
    your preorders and open items. no other instructions
    were given. i think they over sold there preorders at some locations.

    Something did seem fishy. I would suspect BB was pushing models that are not as popular first and once there sold push the more desirable ones. With that said though I have no Idea which Ipads would be more desirable than another. I would think they would want to push the 64gb model$ but it seems like several people on MR consider that model desirable. Just an observation.

    did you feel dorky typing XOOM so many times. I would, because its dorky. It's the same reasons that everything in "Xenon: Girl of the 21st Century" was dorky

    Yeah but it kinda grows on you. I really don't like iPad 2 as a name very much, but it kinda grows on you too.

    Smartphone OS, yes (iPhone vs. Android phones).

    iOS as whole (iPads + iPods + iPhones + Apple TV) kills Android numbers though. By LARGE margins.

    Fixed that! :D

    If Apple FAD goes away, where will Google copy from next?

    You are delusional if you think Google is not building upon the Apple FAD.

    If there's any truth to the Google Android prototype phone being Blackberry-like, then Google is merely pulling a Microsoft by copying Apple's success. Otherwise, why wouldn't Google have continued down that path?

    Well, the on advantage of not being able to afford a lappy until next years it that I might a MacBook based on the Santa Rosa platform.

    It seems though that Santa Rosa might end up getting delayed... there have been many issues with getting 802.11n finalized, which is an important component to the new platform

    Apple may innovate and capture an audience at the start of the race, but boy do they sure tapper off in the long stretch and lose market share over time. They should really be pumping out multiple iPhone versions in 6 month increments...same for the iPad. Upgrades don't need to be major, but enough to keep people on the hook for their products.

    +1
    NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!!! They have the resources to do better than this. Unless total domination is not their focus.

    ...that and a Airplane/Auto Magsafe power adapter. dont you think that would be nice. it's been to long without it! cmon apple. build it!

    On a (somewhat) unrelated subject... I must be flying on the wrong airlines, because I only think I've been on a plane with any kind of power outlet (AC or DC) once, and that was on one of the larger (trans-oceanic?) planes. Which sucks, because my current laptop usually doesn't have enough battery power to even last through a 2 hour flight...

    what $500 product?

    And once again people give Apple a pass for something that is clearly an issue.

    You mean to tell me that Apple...this sounds like something Google would do, not Apple.

    revelated, beware! Apple is closing in on you with their black helicopters and vans to take you prisoner for mind control experiments.

    OR

    If they did this on purpose, maybe they wanted to know why so many people complain about AT&T in certain parts of SF. Or maybe they wanted to know how many users access Internet via all the Starbucks in the world? Maybe they wanted to direct ads at you based upon your location.
    All of the above are already being done to you via many other avenues, e.g. your frequent buyer cards, ATMs, CCs, etc.

    BUT

    If you want to believe there is some BIGGER MYSTERIOUS PURPOSE in mind for them to do this, you go right on.

    LOOK OUT BEHIND YOU - WAS THAT A BLACK UNMARKED VAN!!!! :D

    Is having more cores more energy efficient than having one big fat ass 24Ghz processor? Maybe thats a factor in the increasing core count.

    But as some already pointed out, many applications can't use multiple cores, therefore you won't get any performance improvements with multi cores.
