This is why we need both. I really want a iPad Pro that runs OSX (no not a touch version) when placed in a keyboard docking station. I could run dual monitors from the dock. Then when I pull the iPad from the dock it changes to iOS for on the go. I could keep ALL my files on the iPad and have an identical docking station at home and work. Yes something similar is out there, but I want Apple to make mine.
This even makes less sense since Microsoft has the next largest Mac development team to Apple. How are you going to know what's better as a company unless you use and compare both products?
These adults have made their choice, they left mommy and daddy a long time ago. What a dbag.
The Shiraz / Syrah grape is called Syrah in the US, France and many countries. In Australia it is called Shiraz, where it is considered the finest red wine grown there. Shiraz is certainly the most widely planted red grape in Australia. Now that Shiraz has become well known and popular, some wineries in the US who are making an "Austrlian style wine" with this grape are calling their wines Shiraz as well.
Re: plus ca change c'est la meme chose
Your brake comment just hit home with me. I had a car that's rear brakes always made a scratching sound when first applied after sitting for a while. A couple of pedal pushes and all was quiet. It only happened when they cooled down. A month ago the rear wheel ceased pulling out of my driveway. We took it apart and the pad on the shoe had come off and jammed up. I replaced the shoes on both sides with top line NAPA shoes and everything has been quiet since.
The noise always bothered and at times embarrassed me but the dealer could find nothing wrong and when they failed they still had plenty of pad. It must have been something in the design of the shoes.
Re: New OSX' always breaks audio
Not just audio but anything "mission critical". I always had either two partitions or multiple hard drives that I would keep the new and previous OS on so I could test. As the new drive became "useable" for real work the old OS was left behind. When the next OS arrived I wiped that clean and repeat. It's so easy to manage two OS on a Mac it just makes sense.
Apple NEVER claimed to be the first to put a fingerprint ID button on a phone. What they did do was see how lame the implementations were of the manufacturers who did do it were. So they bought the company who was considered ahead of the game, sunk millions more into R&D and came out with a phone that has the feature working as it should. This tech is not flawless but Apple now has the best record for doing it right. They do the same with a lot of technology, that's what they're know for.
"If you see a can of baked beans for 50 pence and and same beans for 75 pence, you don't buy 75 pence beans because you can afford to!"
The key word here is "same" which implies identical in every way.
What if you can buy a can of beans for 50 cents and a better brand of bean for 75 cents, if you can afford to you might choose to buy the better quality beans.
True to Nokia's word, we could still access HERE Maps using an iPhone web brower, although lazy fanbois would no doubt prefer to have a nice big button to click rather than a long old web address to type in.
This really shows how ignorant you are. You don't even know what a bookmark is. Also if you still do want a big button you could save it to the home screen as such.
Well apparently just about any old Apple product with an SATA connection can have an SSD. This is one of the biggest boost to speed along with more memory. I've added both these to an older MBP and it's like a new machine.

Re: Problem solved?
Wow dude talk about the head in the sand. Go grab EVERY model of smartphone from the year 2007 and lay them out on a table. Bring in 5 people who have NEVER used a smartphone and ask them to examine all the phones without any input from you. I can guarantee they will be shocked at how game changing the iPhone was.
That's right you don't know about profit, so let me tell you something, that IS the number one reason a company is in business and why Apple became the wealthiest company in the world. It's not about marketshare, it's about profit and all other makers don't come close to what Apple rakes in.
Re: Does it do widgets?
I've been using widgets on my Macs for years. Hit the F12 key and the screen changes to show all my widgets. I too use to use them a lot more but now only have a few.
On my iPhone 5 I've set up folders as categories and organize all my apps into these on the home page. I keep games on page 2 and that's it. I love using folders and give them names in all caps for easy reading. I hated flipping through numerous pages of apps.
Re: funny enough...
Agreed, the hardware has gotten so fast that you can get an outstanding value by buying and entry level machine (ie mini, iMac) and max out the memory and upgrade the drive. I just picked up a used iMac mid 2011 and dropped in a OWC 32GB ram upgrade kit and this baby is snappy running FCP.
Re: More iPads equals
With the past couple of OS X versions the apps have begun to merge, even using the same names. They all share the cloud and work together so that may very well entice one to get a Mac. I've seen it happen many times. First they got the iPhone, then an iPad and now they are talking to me about a Mac.
Re: Looking for more?
I understand what some are saying about the walled garden thing. I own all apple devices and love the iway they all work together. If you use the included apps then yes you may feel walled in because they are working together with iTunes and icloud. Try getting some new apps. I use Downcast for podcast, VDownload for videos, Dropbox for file storage and many more. Remember there's an app for that.
20th Anniversary Mac
When the title mention Apple I thought for sure the 20th Anniversary Mac would have made the cut. While it wasn't the most powerful of the Mac line of the time the design was surely sexy. You could definitely see that machine sitting on any CEO's desk. It also had the Bose sound system.
