If you're installing a TV transmitter, you have a device at 2000 feet that, if broken open and unshielded, produces enough energy to melt people's faces off at ground level 500 meters away from the tower base.
I call bullshit.
Because they don't really innovate anymore and most of what they do is a regression. The Mac Mini is a perfect example. It really not only failed to advance but in some ways went backwards.
Ya, definitely disappointing there. But on the other hand, doesn't it have a higher CPU-power-per-watt rating? I imagine that this matters more to some people than pure CPU horsepower.
The newer OS upgrades are more about selling you some crap you don't want or need than increasing productivity. Mountain Lion was the last OS that actually seemed like an improvement. My computer ran better with that installation but Mavricks really seems sluggish, so much so I wiped the drive and went back to ML.
Huh, I've noticed the opposite with Mavericks. I only recently (a month ago) upgraded, but I have noticed significantly better battery life with it — especially with Safari not chewing up as many idle CPU cycles.
I hate that upgrades are tied to the Apple Store now. Why???
Ya, that drives me nuts too. However, I think it should still be possible to extract a
So many little things bother me whereas when I first installed OS X I found the little things to be where they excelled.
Yeah, that's a good point. Not much exciting anymore. And Yosemite looks like a huge step backward in the graphic design department. It's all ugly and flat. I don't look forward to being forced to upgrade to it someday.
I find myself using my Linux laptop more and more over the Mac for general computing use. For video work I still use it but now that I've got ffmpeg fixed from the avconv debacle I'm starting to work with Linux more in that area too. If only hardware manufacturers would support Linux more.
Understandable... But how does any of this mean that Apple is becoming less relevant in the computer world? I think most people out there just don't care or notice.
Oh well.......Apple is becoming less and less relevant anyway in the computer world.
What leads you to say that?
This religion started out as a joke, and remains a joke. (Thank Goddess.)
To which goddess are we to pay thanks?
Tetris doesn't need coverage tool to test you. Everything about you.
So what you're saying is...
In Soviet Russia, Tetris game tests you!
Have you even seen the low-end 2014 Mac mini? It's a 1.5GHz CPU that's supposed to go in ultra-portables. The worst part is, that CPU is more expensive than a regular CPU, so Apple made two mistakes in what is supposed to be their entry model to OS X.
I just realized what they're doing. By artificially crippling the latest generation of Mac Mini, it will mean they can claim greater gains later when they switch from Intel to ARM. Mac Mini and MacBook Air will probably be the first lines to switch.
Spinning hard drives for mobile devices have been around for many years.
And.... thank god they're pretty much non-existant anymore.
IOS on a tablet with a hard drive would be a nice laptop for most people
2005 called and wants its thick, noisy, fagile tablet concept back.

[...] At any given time, 8GB will give you 2^(8*(2^23)) states, which of course will change in a nanosecond. [...]
First of all, you mean 8 GiB, not 8 GB.
8 GB is 8*(10^9) bytes, whereas 8 GiB is 8*(2^30) = 2^33 bytes.
Secondly, 8 GiB is actually 2^(8*(2^33)) states, not 2^(8*(2^23)) states. (What you gave was the number of states for 8 MiB.)
And if you are going to use the Voyager craft as examples, please remember that it took 12 years to reach Neptune and will take THREE HUNDRED YEARS to reach the Oort cloud.
At which point it will be V'Ger.
