Apple WWDC 2012
Posted 11 June 2012 - 11:00 AM
I'm kinda hoping that they go back to the old schedule and announce the new iPhone here, instead of september/october with the new iPods. who knows, if it's good, i might get one instead of an Android phone this time.
what are you looking forward to/hoping is announced?

You crack me up, Cide. That's the funniest thing I've seen on MEA since Blanket's 'Jack-pack'.

my problem isn't with the iPhone, it's just the "you will only do things with our technology that we think is acceptable" mentality of Apple. and the fact that when apple have bought out their new phones in the past there has always been an Android phone that did things just as well if not better.
if apple did happen to bring out an iPhone tomorrow that is better than the s3, i would have no problems purchasing it and then jailbreaking the crap out of it!

How many laptop users actually upgrade RAM etc after they walk out the store. SFA. The people all jumping up and down are a minority.

I run 16gig of RAM on my Win7 machine and rarely use more than 30% even throwing a model around (mind you how good are DWF files for keeping file sizes underwraps!). Core i7 3.4/3.7GHz idles along at 2-3% useage for most of my work. And thats only a 1155 chip not a full blown 2011 chip.
Computers are seriously so over powered for what 99% of people do its not funny.
Main reason people upgrade PCs these days is because they dont file manage properly and crap goes every where and slows everything down. If they did a full clean up 90% of people out there upgrading PCs wouldnt need to (component failure aside).

the front looks completely glass again but the back of it looks more matte so hopefully that isn't glass aswell. hopefully if it is glass again, they use Gorilla Glass
Yeah, the back looks almost like metal, which would be a better idea... wouldn't stop the inside from falling apart, but still.

seriously how many of them need more than 8gig of ram?
i have 8gig and i max it out quite often, generally using PS.
but i also am one of them people who likes everything open at all the same time!

Again though we are talking about a laptop here. I would think that most people doing serious photoshop or 3D rendering etc would be doing so on workstation or desktop PCs not a laptop.
Like Cides mate building a PC with 64 gig of ram. Thats not a laptop lets compare apples with apples (no pun intended). How many laptops are out there available with more than 16gig of ram either from factory or user upgradeable? SFA I would suggest. Most only come with 4-8 gig.

while i do agree that most people will not need more than 8gb, i think you are seriously underestimating the market of people that need more in a portable situation

Your arguement at the moment is like saying BMW is crap because they don't offer a 500kW monstor at the same price as a clubsport.
How many CAD packages do you know of that run natively on a Mac?
Most graphic designers and photographers use desktops with large screens. Whats a big screen on a laptop 17" a massive screen is 19". Not exactly the 27"+ screens most graphic designers work on these days.
Again you're missing the fact that the apple is available with 16gig of ram.
Remember untill about 5 years ago 4gig was pretty much the limit of RAM - why all the sudden an explosion in requirements?
Also dont discount that Mac were the first manufacturer offering 64bit computing.
