Core-blimey! Intel's Core i9 18-core monster – the numbers

Samsara

I use Macs & Final Cut Pro X for a living, & the loads appear to be distributed between GPU & CPU (couldn't tell you *exactly* what is doing what) from seeing the performance of a variety of machines that I use...so yes, a big fast new chip (I assume this is whats going in the forthcoming iMac 'Pro') would be very much welcome...also in the audio processing side of things its 100% CPU load

Re: Thunderbolt be a solution...

F**K you at last Microsoft

>It's bloody slow on my PowerBook G4. I'm waiting for the updated NeoOffice

I'm surprised it works at all. It's supposed to be for Intel-Only Macs.

Works great here on my Macbook.

Up yours, Gates & Ballmer !

No Firewire at all on the Macbook

..and just FW800 on the MacBook Pro.

Dude, just turn 'Autosync' off in iTunes, then you can drag songs onto your iPod from any PC you plug it into..

Confused?

But we're always being told that Islam is such a peaceful loving religion by the Guardian.

I'm confused ?

Apple unsheathes Jesus Phone 2.1

Samsara

Seems a good update..

Can't believe i'm the saddo that's first to comment.

Anyway...Yes, the 2.1 update does to seem to make the battery last longer, the gprs available where it wasn't before, & the interface (contact browsing & typing) more responsive.

Good stuff.

Now just give me cut & paste, & i'll be happy with it until next July's Mark III Model.
