$130,000,000,000 CASH in the bank, means they are heading down the drain like your journalism reputation.
Apple is in the business of selling luxury electronics, not crap junk everyone can afford.
What will your next article be? "Mercedes will go out of business soon if they don't start making a $5,000 car so I can afford one!"
Do some research before writing your next article.
Stupid articles like this....
...are what give The Register its bad reputation.
Never heard of them.
Another reason I won't be buying one. Plus, having all that crammed onto one chip means it will have cooling issues even worse than the 360.
I did not done this research to harm or damage.
When will it be available?
Oh, it will never be available in the USA? Guess we just prefer our 16mpg SUVs.
Re: Missing the point.
1000 feet, 333 yards. Still not even a fatal range for a soft target, or even a paper target with the ammo they listed. A slug, maybe.
FYI, Deer Trail is not backwoods. Its an upper-middle class suburb in the foothills of south Denver.
A shotgun has an effective kill range of a soft target of about 300 feet (100 yards) horizontal, 1/3 of that vertical due to gravity.
Drones are not soft targets, they are designed to fly at high altitudes AND are designed to withstand small arms fire. Even if one were 100ft from the ground you would have trouble causing crippling damage to one with a shotgun.
FYI, Deer Trail is not by any means "backwoods", its a rich fart community where people pay big bucks for land to make them fell like they are living in the mountains, when in fact they barely qualify for the foothills.
For 5.5 years of pollution to literally move nothing nowhere.
Yeah, sure, good luck with that battery thing.....
Unless they're towing a semi-trailer sized battery pack or plan on swapping the pack out every 50 miles, they don't have a chance.
The Tesla barely got 25 miles when Clarkson pushed it hard. Even after having "invested over $5bn in battery technology" in the Leaf it only gets 75 miles of normal driving.
At about 3,300 miles total distance, that is 44-132 pit stops, one every 11-32 minutes or 3--9 laps!
Apple fanbois, writing for The Register?
Re: Good grief
No, no really Richard. The iMac's specs and features are better than more than half of the machines compared here.
Waste of time
You spend an article bashing Apple for its price and features, yet its cheaper than half of the others, has the best GPU, the best screen and 3rd best CPU (but you got the upgrade option in the Dell).
Plus, as your article proves, its still the benchmark for AIO desktops.
Innovation, no "s" on there.
I won't buy one
Simple because of this.
Thats all we need
"You will have a dedicated game DVR capable of capturing those magic moments and saving them to the cloud,"
More losers "pwning" people. FYI, nobody cares about you playing your game.
"we hasten to add that $9bn is also nearly enough to build Apple's planned "spaceship" headquarters ... twice."
Even the One World Trade Center, built on one of the world's most expensive land plots, didn't cost that much.
97% are ignorant
The sun and Earth's elliptical orbit is to blame, simple as that.
Re: Let's see....
Thats great, lets us know when you can install any useful programs or popular games.
In other words...
Laptop makers would make better products if they made better quality products.
Even Apple can't access the data and doesn't know what the data is.
$60 for a 23 year old video game!? I bought it over 20 years ago, why should I pay for the same game again?
Alcohol is bad? Ya don't say? You had to do a whole study to figure that out?
The sun heats the climate and the weather changes.
How, exactly, are they mocking Apple in any way?
They are actually mocking themselves; trying to figure a way to make their product copy somebody elses as close as possible without directly violating copyright/trademark laws or paying for the right to use the name or likeness.
That immoral business practice cost them $1b last time.....
Really, $1000 for an iPod with a big screen? Do you REALLY need to hold 15 1080p movies at the same time?
This is great! All you need is an RFID scanner and you've got people's credit card details!
So, no good films then? – Ed
Ed, please keep your personal opinions out of articles. This is a journalistic website, not a blog.
Re: not many?
There is no cure. People are who they are. Ex: People that like to drive fast will always drive fast no matter how many speeding tickets they get, the "good" ones will simply learn how to recognize trap areas and better evade detection.
Any "treatment" you give them will just be BS'd through and nothing will change except how they go about venting their desires.
Re: not many?
Its likely that the 2100 figure is either how many have game accounts with those companies or how many of the total sex offenders had crimes against children.
This is extremely offensive. These people paid their debt and being a sex offender does not automatically mean they are a pedophile.
Besides, registered sex offenders are people that got caught. The REAL dangerous people know how to avoid detection and cover their tracks.
What about the weather disturbances caused by all those wind turbines slowing the surface airflow and solar panels absorbing the sun's heat?
Where is your article crying about how Chromebooks can't run Windows?
In the end
Yet in the end, Asus and Lenovo are both simply trying to copy Apple's Macbook Air.
There is no way to avoid the internet today, let alone in 6 years.
This isn't 1998, pre-paid smart phones and laptops can be easily hidden and used where/when ever is convenient for him.
More than half the students around him likely have a smart phone. All it takes is "hey, can I borrow that a minute" and he is on the internet anywhere at any time.
Jail time would be far easier.
In December, Ivy Bridge will be 9 months old.
The 768GB SSD will be a $1300 option. Along with the CPU and GPU options, are you ready to pay $3700 for 9 month old tech?
Why does it still have a chin? If they are looking to improve the design, making it a bit thicker and deleting the chin would be a FAR better choice!
The Mini was a downgrade by deleting the GPU.
The 13" MBP is a poor deal with only dual-core options and no GPU. Might as well save $400 and get the Air.
The iPad Mini is a joke with it's low-res screen. The iPhone 5 has more pixel height in it's 4" screen.
No news on the 2.5 year old MacPro.
Overall an extremely disappointing event with no hardware I'd consider buying.
Must be a PC thing. My Mac was last reset in Mid-August, only because I finally decided to install the latest Safari update. My PowerMac G5 has been running for the last 6 months, only because of a power outage long enough to make the UPS shut it down.
Only 5 million in the first weekend?
How will they recover their capital investment at that rate?
Maps is a deal-breaker for me. I'll be sticking with iOS5 on my 3GS.
BT is still the preferred choice
ABC= Commercial interruptions, watch on their time schedule, watch once.
BT= No ads of any kind, watch when when you want, watch again any time in the future.
What is "presumably not so fantastic" about BT again?
So many options for failure.
Riding the bus or riding as a passenger will send false alarms and piss off a lot of already hormone insane teenagers.
Re: "Not a PC" What? You are not suggesting that Apple will *copy* this are you?
Please sir, point out exactly what computer the Macbook Air is "reverse engineered" from.
A netbook? Even those things were twice as thick as the first Air and none looked or functioned even remotely like it.
Ultrabook sales are forecast to grow 92 per cent compounded through to 2017.
For ultrabook sales to "compound", there must first be ultrabooks to buy.
Apple's Macbook Air is not an ultrabook, everyone else is just trying their best to copy it without directly saying so. Just like the iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad.
Re: Carbon Copy Cloner is no longer freeware
Nope. Have the absolute latest 3.5.1 and it works as described.
The problem is PayPal itself.
The problem isn't really a matter of functionality, it's a matter of PayPal and eBay being greedy and unethical in their business practices.
When eBay stopped allowing money orders as an acceptable form of payment and forced PayPal or local pickup as the only options for individuals, I stopped using eBay.
Because it would have competed with the 15" model and stole its thunder. A 13" retina is ready to be released if you have watched the Mac news sites.
They didn't overcharge
Its called "profit margin" in the business world.
I clicked on the "Hide all from GM" button over a year ago. AdBlockPlus catches the normal web ads.
So suddenly CO2 isn't the cause of "global warming", its methane? These climate "scientists" need to make up their minds on the best way to scare money out of gullible people.
