Hmm, What Is Apple Doing?


#221

Not “cheap”, just being “pragmatic”… :rofl:

Although, I will definitely upgrade to the X. I already have a 6S which is not much different from an 8, I don’t think.

iPhone X is the beginning of computers to be just a piece of glass :slight_smile: This vision has been decades long… finally, started to see something that look a little similar. I have to wonder when will it be cost effective to have a wall of computers :slight_smile: , can see through outside or as a display. 10 years? 20 years?

Apple Watch goes cellular 2 years earlier than I thought. Manch and sfdragonboy have no excuse not to buy except being cheap :rage: Don’t think I can’t remember what reasons you guys gave for not buying :wink:


#223

Rumors have it that Apple already has a version of MacOS X running on its own chips for 3-5 years.


#224

What would they do for graphics? I wonder if they’d be compatible with ATI/nVidia or if they’d have their own graphics too. I’m not surprised since Mac OS and iOS keep getting closer and closer together each year.


#225

There are no Cirrus Logic branded audio chips in Apple products. All branded as Apple because they are co-designed by Apple and CRUS. Is there a purpose to design completely in-house? Or bring CRUS in-house?


#226

My guess would be it’ll eventually be integrated into the CPU. Will they have to pay CRUS design royalties for the IP to do it?


#227

How come X and 8/8+ don’t come in rose gold any more? Do they not care about female customers?


#228

They come in with silver and gold. They are universally liked and gender neutral. :slight_smile:


#229

I honestly don’t get the point of the colors. Everyone puts a case on it anyway.


#230

If it’s a clear case then color matters. I was thinking about upgrading to an 8+ from a 6 before the keynote but given the lack of colors and indistinguishable features compared to the previous version I am probably going to get a 7+ after all.


#231

Just buy the X. All of us have money to burn since no one is buying any real estate! What’s a few hundred more?[


#232

Hey, hey, hey… speak for yourself, some of us ARE buying (just haven’t found THE ONE yet)!!!


#233

Actually I do plan to buy RE soon (within the next 6 months-1 year, or sooner if there will be more inventory).


#234

I’m signing a purchase contract as we speak… :rofl:


#235

Moving down to South Bay?


#236

Probably not South Bay because it’s too expensive. I considered Smellpitas initially because it’s a bit cheaper but got deterred by the odor. Maybe I will look into Fremont instead.


#237

Yeah, and plus I just spent a lot of money on this down under trip since I paid for my family too and planned the whole thing. Things in Kangarooland are not exactly cheap you know…


#238

Did you visit the island of hardcore convicts and spot any Tasmanian devils?


#239

Wow, what a daughter!!! We must find you a Prince…


#240

I haven’t gone yet but I’m about to. I paid for flights/hotels/local day tours/other expenses already so I anticipate much more $$ to be spent on food, which means I probably need to eat cup noodle for a while when I come back…:fearful:
