How does one apply to be an analyst for Apple? I think any one of us on this forum could best these 6-figure earning spoofers.

I'd be VERY surprised if Apple goes thru the first six months of this year with almost no new products released. I have to admit that Apple has surprised me before and if anyone would have said last year that both Ipad 3 and 4 would be released the same year, I would not have believed it.

But that is also why I believe that Mr Kuo probably is wrong about Q1 and Q2 releases; last year indicated that Apple will update their products more often.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see both an updated Iphone and Ipad/Ipad Mini, perhaps as soon as Q1, but no later than Q2.

Yeah, didn't Apple say that they were going to release a new model Mac Pro in 2013?

Mac Pro

In recent years, many long-time Apple observers have noted that it appears to have abandoned the type of creative professionals who kept the Mac maker afloat during more difficult times.

Power-hungry users relied on the Mac Pro to get things done, but users saw only an incremental update in June 2012, with minor speed boosts for processors and increases in RAM. With no Thunderbolt or USB 3.0, the update failed to impress, and users took to Twitter and Facebook to demand Apple act. One received a response from Apple CEO Tim Cook, who in an email told concerned customer Franz: “Our Pro customers like you are really important to us… Don’t worry as we’re working on something really great for later next year.” Speculation suggests a redesigned Mac Pro, new and improved Intel processors, a move away from Intel for Apple’s own chips, native SATA III/SAS connectivity, and more.

as mentioned, it says "predictions"

this guy only speculates

there is nothing to believe in his words

Apple is simply unpredictable

everyone can speculate

it doesn't need a genius to know that next products will all have retina sooner or later, A6x-A7x processors in iOS products, will be lighter and slimmer

the guy only knows to read a calendar and make copy & paste

The iPhone 5S is definitely coming out in June. Given most people by now are pretty meh about any S upgrade, waiting a whole year (given the current competition) to release an S will be very naive.

They will not redesign the iPhone 5. That's tantamount to admitting there's a design flaw.

That's because this yahoo doesn't know diddly and just repeats gossip from other sites, completely missing the fact that Tim has more or less said something is coming for the Pro end. May not be a new tower as such, maybe something different.

Here, I can be an analyst to. AppleTV with Apps. After all it just got better bluetooth keyboard support. Now all it needs is AirPlay remote control from an iOS device or bluetooth trackpad support. The new ATV now with BT trackpad support, iCloud sync, and a Set of Apple 1st party Apps (Calendar, Clock, etc). ('Touch' location will be show by little rings where the trackpad sense your fingers at) ATV App development kit available at WWDC 2013 alongside iOS 6.5 (<- not for maps, but for ATV App support )

I have work to do, Apple, and I'm not upgrading to the current Mac Pro.
All of us who have Mac pro are in the same boat, the issue is we the people who use Mac pro are no longer relevant to Apple and a lot now have jumped to PC, as like you say its insane and rude they have done this. You never know Tim Cook may throw a bone later this year but dont hold your breath!

Also even if he does it will be another 3-4 years before that aso gets updated as its not a consumer item. Consumers want everything now and the latests look, we just want reliability, functionality and the best possible speed for our workflow as well as to be able to update and easy connectivity to a multitude of storage devices etc.

Apple have silently stopped supporting editors, photographers, film makers over the last few years, yes there are the odd update here or there but most have been left to wither on the vine, I mean how long does it take to update aperture for god sake and the FCPx debacle was just silly and a punch in the face.

Lets face it Adobe has the edge for digital workflow and although not perfect and doesn't have Apple on the box at least its updated regular and works perfectly with a PC. Just use it for that and that alone and keep away from the internet unless updating. This way you prevent viruses although not entirely.

So Apple you were just that, the Apple of my eye for many many years, but for pro work its sad but I have to let you go. I will still be using your MackBook for consumer rubbish tho

In real life, Ive yet to hear praise from another regarding the current iMac. On MR, I have noticed a lot of negative views, too. I'm never buying another iMac because some people actually need optical drives, even if they dont generate as much iTunes sales... Since gone from anticipating the Mac Pro update to fearing what it will bring...

I'm going to assume that we have a bit of a language barrier here , I can accept that , but you are way off base all the same.

There are no rumors out regarding this but I've heard from various sources (read: engineers who work there) that Apple is working on developing some kind of sound-related project. No idea what it might be or when (if?) it will come out, but there's something new. Or it could be my friends screwing with me.

Where I work, with high but not extreme performance needs, we did buy 8 core Mac Pro's years ago, but all new machines are quad core iMac 27" or quad core retina MBP. At least the same speed on all tasks, and more speed on some tasks. For much less money.

I remember a post where someone said he tried a huge number of laptops with fingerprint recognition at his company, and about five percent gave him access with his fingerprint. The other way round, if you have a group of 40 people you should be able to access almost every machine. Not very safe at all.

Are you kidding? Lets forget all the leaked pictures, rumors, concept art and predictions for a moment and focus on one of the very first slides shown the day the iPad was to be introduced, shortly before the actual official announcement:



Steve Jobs basically admitted that what he was going to present was something that everyone had been expecting for a loooong time...

Thunderbolt requires an active display channel to work with. It will never happen with AMD as it requires an Intel processor. I predict Thunderbolt will fail in everything but niche applications because of incompatibility.

No updates in the first two quarters besides a spec bump to a hobby market. I doubt it. I would suspect either an iPad update or MacBook Pro. More so the pro as they have an average of. Being update about every ten months or so. iPhone probably in the summer or fall. This cheaper iPhone thing makes no sense. Sure they'll get more market share but profit margins will be low and its against what apple is about. Remember netbooks? I don't expect retina displays on anything but what's retina now and maybe the mini. iPod touch with no camera makes no sense either. They could just make the current gen 8GB and come out with 5th gen s for iPod touch so to speak. Honestly whenever I see these predictions it makes me want to know what I have to do to become an analyst.

I was tossing that iDea around a little yesterday, but didn't quite know how to deal with thoughts of Upgrading current gear in the future -
Then seeing this Line - Thunderbolt will fail in everything, Sparked an idea.
Simply Search the idea. Wow- Hot 125f Cables, and More.

OTOH, iOS isn't an autonomous OS: you cannot develop iOS apps on iOS, and I guess they don't build the iOS kernel on iOS. And it's unlikely that Apple will enhance iOS so that it becomes an autonomous OS, so another OS is needed in order to develop apps.

Apple doesn't seem committed to the Mac lately, because all updates have been just updates or aesthetic changes, but no attempts have been made to perfect the Mac, to make it more powerful... just updates and making it look more and more like iOS.

The Paradox is that Apple needs the Mac because the way iOS is designed.

And when you need something but doesn't take care of such something, you end in failure.

People are ? Which people ? The iPhone 3GS outsold the 3G by a good margin, the 4S outsold the iPhone 4 by a good margin also.

Every iPhone has broken the records set by its predecessor. So where do you get it that people are pretty "meh" about any S upgrade ? That sure as heck ain't supported by the sales number.

Heck, I've owned a 3GS and a 4S, skipped the 3G and the 4. Now on a 5, I'll see how scuffed it is and if I have cash for the 5S.

iOS is Darwin with the Springboard UI on top instead of Finder. It can very much run LLVM or GCC to build apps or build itself. The issue is Apple doesn't ship a LLVM port for iOS and doesn't really allow anyone to do so (without jailbreaking).

The OS itself is capable of it, Darwin is really a modern operating system. The fact that Springboard exposes no way for the user to make it happen is not a limitation of the actual underlying OS, it's an artificial limitation imposed by the vendor.

And that can be lifted at anytime. Apple could turn around at WWDC this year and present XCode for iOS, nothing technical actually prevents it.
