I'll wait for 10.8.1. Let them iron out some of the inevitable
Yeah, Apple is going to phase out Macs, because disposing of billions of dollars of profit every quarter makes perfect sense, right? Apple makes lots of money from Macs. That is only one of many reasons that they're in no danger of dying off.
Eh, it's a double-edged sword. You can only play it safe for so long, but on the other hand, a radical shift can alienate the userbase. Just look at all the flak Metro is getting.
And Apple is still making more from iPhones and the app ecosystem than the rest of the smartphone market combined. Yep, they sure got steamrolled!
SNES cartridges carried a much higher cost than a plain stamped optical disc or downloaded content.
The submitter also missed Marathon, which Bungie open sourced years ago.
Do you really think a parent hovers around their kid 24/7?
Spoken like someone who does not have any kids. Newsflash: Even the best kids don't always listen to what mommy and/or daddy tell them. Furthermore, I'd say this is also to prevent unintentional access to nasty stuff. You can't sit there watching over their shoulder ever second they're online. Put the computer in the living room, sure, but it's not just deliberate access to the more visceral parts of the internet that you'd need to be worried about. At that age, it's probably more about the kids not realizing where they're clicking until they're watching 2 girls, 1 cup.
Putting up with creepy neckbeards in the CS major? I've certainly seen it with the scant few women that were CS majors at my school.
From what I've seen, most of them think this means coming up with a few ideas and then finding someone else to do all the hard stuff. It's pathetic. Maybe 1% of that 50% will actually take it seriously, and even then a bunch of them may get 2-year technical school degrees that come printed on Charmin 2-ply. If they're lucky, they can get a job at EA getting paid peanuts while being chained up in the basement and eating hardtack and swill.
You can fit more actual data if the software is built for it. For example, FCPX is now built for it, so you'll probably be getting real 1080p resolution out of that video without filling the whole screen.
Because Apple isn't selling a Thunderbolt -> Ethernet adapter for a whopping $29 or anything.
You mean iPod Touch or click-wheel iPod? The latter really isn't that tough.
Not necessarily. Apple has been working resolution independence into OS X for years now. Things that don't take advantage of the higher res may be doubled, but I think a lot of UI elements and such will be built to take advantage of the resolution without doubling.
Nope. $29 for the TB adapter. That's actually surprisingly cheap.
