    Yes but I'm interested to know why you think the numbers are disproportionate. If you don't think it's race, finances, or lack of access to social services then what is it?

    Who knows? Maybe there is a genetic component involved.

    I doubt a new MBP announcement will hurt the iPad in any way. I think only an inconsequential percentage of Apple's iPad customer base would change plans for an iPad and choose a MBP instead.

    I agree, but that's not the point. Steve put his face on this product. It's still very unknown as to how it will fare. He doesn't want the distraction that the MBPs would cause.

    Also, current MBPs seem (I don't have any numbers other than their quarterly report) to be selling at a high rate. As much as we want the updates, to Apple, there's no exigency.

    Why doesn't stuff like this happen to me.

    I know right, a long time ago I took a friend to a grand opening of a mac store and they had door prizes...he won an iMac, he instantly became a PC turned Mac person, now he owns more Apple stuff than I do.

    Oh yea, I got a door prize too...accounting software

    Apples whole line-up is impressive....All carrying high performance processers and add ons...I'm not in a hurry for the MBP,MB bumps beacause they are already the imac and minis get a little bit more....good time to be interested in OSX.

    Well that's interesting........and wouldn't that be an interesting reason for a smaller screen (to better accommodate "glasses free" 3D.

    A lot of smoke here....I couldn't figure out why so many rumors had the iPad 2 at a smaller screen (despite Jobs stance on the issue at iPad 1 launch) and I could see that slipping first, without context to why.

    7" iPad is meh.

    7" 3D iPad is definitely less meh, but unless they bring more, it won't be enough for me to jump from the 2....check back though in 6 months....

    P.s. Apple - I know a "game" system is coming...whether it's this mobile device or a console (ala Apple TV mutant)....bring it!

    And then -- I can't figure out what you're talking about. I have no problems listening to any Beatles albums in Stereo. They're perhaps wider stereo soundstages than you'd find today (where albums mostly play the same GD thing out of both channels) -- but that makes them sonically interesting, not unlistenable.

    I think what is being referenced is what used to be called "ping-pong stereo," the very wide and complete separation of channels -- which in the Beatles catalog is heard mainly on the Rubber Soul and Revolver albums, the two best they ever made IMO. I'm not a huge Beatles fan, but mess with these recordings at your peril!

    LOL! That's precisely why the "limited supply" iPad2 launch was such a fiasco. You impulse buyers couldn't pull the trigger. Seriously... were this any other company other than Apple at least top 3 execs would have had their asses thrown out the door.

    As an aside... my local Wal-Mart has had iPad2's for 2 weeks now. I've been there at least 3 times a week and they're always in stock.

    The board that oversees what the top 3 executives do at Apple knows more than you about production issues of MILLIONS of hi-tech devices.

    Anybody familiar with production and distribution issues knows that despite excellent planning there may be issues during production that cannot be forecast.

    Selling and shipping MILLIONS in a few weeks is a exactly fiasco for whom?

    No- how ridiculous. Atheism is not a religion.

    Dogmatic belief in the nonexistence of God can be considered a religion.
    Agnostic atheism cannot though.

    Will this recall ever expire?
    The reason im asking is that my 3k550 A1079 12" PB battery only has been through 18 battery loadcycles and still has 100% capacity according to cocounut battery...

    Im wondering If I should get it replaced right now or wait untill my current battery starts running out of juice? What would you guys do?

    edit: My pb warps every once in a while, could a new battery fix the problem?

    and risk having the battery catch on fire or actually do something worse? that would be stupid

    This is gonna be fun...

    Unfortunately, most people are NOT computer savvy and when they see an Apple Mac at 1GHz and a PC at 2.5GHz and two thirds the price, which do you think they will pick?

    Agreed, most will go the cheaper route with the bigger numbers, and it should stay that way. I'm all for Apple quadrupling their market share up to about 20%, but once we get past that share we start getting 'undocumented Windows features' on our Macs. Virii, security exploits, crappy software, spyware, etc.

    I don't expect 20% of the cars I see to be luxury cars, the same is true of computers.

    It's the same reason people will pick up a Gamecube over an Xbox - They don't take time to find out what comes with either, they just pick the cheapest. Nemo: "Well it does the same thing, dunnit?"

    If I'm not mistaken, most of the 'people' you're referring to bought a PS2.

    You simply can't configure your hardware in a mac as much as you can in a PC. I know people who are hardcore PC "tinkerers", who barely touch their mac (with regards to messing with the hardware), because there's simply nothing interesting to do with it, except maybe upgrade it.

    True, if you want a neon coumputer with hydraulics that'll do the '3 wheel motion' get a PC. If you want a computer which looks great as manufactured, get a Mac.

    To put it into my beloved auto analogies, you can lower and tune a Honda Accord, put neon lights, big woofers, nitrous, and glitter paint on it. You could spend six figures doing this.

    If you have half a brain, you spend 80k and buy a 1997 Porsche Turbo.

    Can you buy a 5 fan aluminium case for a mac? No.

    With a cool running chip, why run 5 fans?

    Can you buy cooling systems, fan regulators and lights? No.

    Well, you can, but, why would you?

    Can you buy wrapped IDE cables and cut a hole in the side of your mac to show off everything inside? No.

    Oh yeah, I forgot, only those proprietary Apple brand flat IDE cables work in a Mac.

    And I've got a Dremel and a Sawzall, I can cut a hole in anything I want to. However, I find my computer aesthetically pleasing, and don't enjoy looking at cables, cards, and drives as they sit static all day long

    Do you have different types of hardware manufacturers, competing for your money? Well yes, but not as much as PC users.

    More and more we're gonna ruin this argument. UNIX has as many driver options for hardware as Windows. Already, some PC cards are working out of the box, and drivers for many more are being rewritten for Jaguar (PPC+BSD). This argument is valid now, but not for long.

    The very market Apple has always played for and still plays for today, to some extent, is people who are computer illiterate. Nearly all of their advertising campaigns say: "Macs are easier to use that PCs." Thereby trying to attract those who can't use PCs, or at least, find them difficult to use.

    What they're playing for is those who want to use a computer to do work, not those who want to do work on a computer. I've got 2 Macs, 2 PCs, and a Sun box at my desk. I am able to do more in a day on the Macs, because they don't get in my way, they don't have DLL conflicts, they don't BSOD, they just work.

    Talk to the smartest engineers in the world about anything, and they'll all tell you to employ the KISS principle at all times for a better product. That's 'Keep it simple, stupid'.

    Apple has always made things simple, yet powerful, well still keeping them idiot proof. That is why they have such amazing loyalty.

    Mac users are the most disillusioned people that i've ever seen. You guys lie and lie and lie to yourselves time and again, just to make yourselves feel better about buying a Mac.

    There's a lot of truth to this. People who think that the G4 1GHz is faster than 2+GHz x86's are indeed delusional. I will, however, be glad to point out that Windows is not a productive place to work, and all the extra mousing, clicking, rebooting, debugging, and BSODing adds up to a lot of wasted time you don't have with a Mac. Additionally, the TCO and downtime/year of the Mac is far superior in a business environment (businesses are the places where computers don't have neon lights, and the people want to work, FYI).

    In general, if you want a computer for gaming, you DO NOT buy a Mac, unless you're very stupid. I'd say about one tenth of the games that come out on PC, also get released on Macs, and even when they do, it's a few months to a year after the PC version is released. Granted, Apple is doing an amazing job of getting more games developers to release OSX version of their games, but still, most of the time Mac users have to wait for the game to be release after the PC version. Although, basically all of the best games do eventually get released on Macs. The words "Mac Gamer" is an oxymoron and the words "Hardcore Mac Gamer" is just a myth.

    Sure, we're not a gaming platform first and foremost. You should see the three bad games I have on my Solaris machine... Anyway, we get out games a bit later, and I'm okay with that, but as things progress, I think you'll see the quality games released concurrently (like Warcraft III).

    A Mac is a great computer, so stop bull****ting yourselves about all of the things you think it can do and just accept that Macs are still more stylish and more stable than PCs and have, in my opinion and i'm sure yours, a much better looking and interesting to use OS. PCs are slowly catching up to Macs in that department, especially with regards to stability and if you really want a stylish computer, it's easy to find as long as you have someone that can build it. I'd personally, rather have a well build, aluminium case (NOT Lian Li cr@p) cased computer than a white, plastic Mac that anyone can buy.

    To each they're own. I'm not 13, so I don't wan't an erector set case with lights and a window, and 5 noisy fans.

    PCs maybe catching up on stability (I stop at Win2k Pro), but they are losing on Privacy, Fair Use, extensibility, programmability, style, ease of use. and productivity.

    Also, anyone here can fix a Mac with relative ease (if something goes wrong), but 90% of PC users flail miserably until calling in professional support. That says a lot.

    It's been proven that more intelligent and richer people buy Macs. And that is the most moronic thing i've ever heard. OF COURSE the people who buy macs are, in general, going to have more money and be more intelligent, for the simple fact that Macs are far more expensive than PCs. That's like saying:

    "People that buy Mercedes cars are more intelligent and richer than people who buy Skodas."

    Macs are more expensive, therefore you need more money to buy them, - the people who buy them have more money because they have better jobs and they have those better jobs because they have college degrees or a better education. GET IT?

    Considering that statement says Mac users are more intelligent than PC users, Mac users sure do buy into a lot of stupid, ************, sensationalized advertising.

    Well, aside from making an argument, and immediately contradicting it, did you have a point?

    The cult of Macintosh is built around taste. An appreciation for design, ease of use, quality, value, etc.

    That doesn't mean stupid people don't have Macs, and smart people don't have PCs.

    It simply means PC users, on the average, are likely to own Lay-Z-Boys, and Mac owners, on the average are likely to own Eames chairs.

    Taste, some have it, some don't.

    I believe that Apple WAS turning heads, but with the advent of the 3GHz Intel CPU, i hope Apple will finally start to realize that they need to do something, and fast, but i don't think they will.

    Ever seen a PC on the cover of Time magazine? Ever seen a bunch of Mac journalists go 'wow, this Windows on Intel thing is really cool'? Ever think that maybe you're not privy to Apple's master plan?

    I've been using Macs since 1984, and I've heard 'Apple better....' more times than I care to imagine. Like before they revolutionized the publishing industry. Like before the orignal iMac was introduced. Like before they brought UNIX to the masses. I'm really not too worried that 'Apple had better...'

    Now don't get me wrong, i love Macs. What i HATE is Mac users who continue to lie about what Macs can do, what people who use Macs are like and spout crap like: "Mac users are sooo much better than PC users!". Just grow up!

    What can't a Mac do? Play DiVX movies well.
    What can a Mac do? Run 99% of all software ever written (MacOS, UNIX, Windows via VPC, C64, SNES, etc through emulation).

    Mac users are uppity about being Mac users because they have less problems, it doesn't make them better.

    And the sadness of it all is that, in my experience, PC users don't really give a crap about Mac users, but Mac users continue to insult PC users at every chance they get. It's childish.

    Actually, Mac users tend to bash PC users who show up in Mac forums touting the great benefits of Wintel.

    Mac users (over 18) usually don't have the energy to go muckraking in the PC world.

    It's Apples fault. If they can't run their company properly, they can't expect anyone else to do it for them.

    Can't run their company? This is too puerile to be real. They're doing huge things in a crap market, creating new revenue streams, new products, etc.

    Name a profitable PC company recently?

    Give you a hint, starts with A

    Maybe by 'can't run thier company' you meant 'can't please me'?

    Now when are the fricking new Macs going to be released?

    When the planets chip/market/inventory/r&d/manufacturing/cost align in 2003.

    That is wonderfully quotable.

    Interesting rumor, who knows if really true. 3D just isn't that widely accepted yet. I have enjoyed looking at some of the 3D TVs at Best Buy very much, but I wouldn't buy one!

    There are still more than 500 Radio Shack's left? Can't believe they're not out of business yet lol!

    I'm surprised they are still in business as well. They've been around a long time, I remember they used to be the place to get batteries. They are just like the Energizer bunny, they just keep going and going... Good for them for staying in the game.

    I am seriously thinking of getting out of Windowsworld and the new 24" iMac looks great!:D

    From the listed specs this will really rock.

    Anybody have advice on whether I should wait for Leopard to come out or not?

    Just do it. Leopard will be a coupla hundred bucks when it comes (Spring), no biggie.

    This is exactly how I got into the Mac market.

    After getting an iPhone 3G, when it came time for a new laptop, I decided to give Mac a go. I absolutely loved the hardware.

    A few months ago, when it was time for a new desktop, iMac 27 inch was the machine of choice. I still prefer Windows 7 over Mac OS and Bootcamp/Win 7 is the first thing I install on new Mac hardware.

    I like having both options available to me.

    You are aware you just paid extra for only one think and that is MAC os. By placing windows on it you kind of defeat the purpose of buying a MAC. You wasted a lot of money in fact. Never buy a mac for hardware...Because they do not have the best.

    Hmmmn, my Keyboard just turned pink....AGGGHH!

    Jul 23, 09:41 PM
    Sounds like we are getting an iPod Pro if that is at all possible. Personally I think putting too much functionality in to an item like the iPod is a bad idea, I use my iPod Video for music and sometimes a movie or TV episode.

    The beauty of the iPod is its simplicity, elegance and ease of use once you start stuffing around with a winning formula then it's doomed to fail.

    With that said if an iPod is released with a bigger LCD or OLED screen and a PDA type function I probably would buy it :D :cool:

    Hey guys, I've created a website called pleasesteve for everyone to be able to submit their ideas on what the next line up of apple products needs. People with more tech knowledge can also comment and clear up any reasoning for why Apple may not implement some of the suggestions too. Please check it out and tell me how to improve as its gonna grow slowly.


    Nov 8, 06:31 AM
    If you're reading this Thread ;-) Let me wonder... and what about macbooks of different colors, to match the ipod nano?

    Possibly... Imagine red MB.. Or perhaps the pink one like PSP .. On second thought, ewww
