There's nothing for me in this update. I don't use iOS devices so the hand-off thing is useless to me. The rest of it is just tweaking UI stuff to no great end or advantage. This marks four Mac OS...

I'm not surprised by this. I've been a fan of Apple since the '80s and used to be one of those guys that would get into heated Mac vs PC debates with friends (on the pro Mac side), but a bit over a...

Yes, but if the apps you are interested in don't use OpenCL, then this is a big cost with little advantage. My point is, there are users who would like all the rest of the good things the Mac Pro has...

I don't see why Apple needs you to buy two very expensive GPUs. They should allow a configuration that only has one.

Apple, put an optical drive back into the Mac mini, and maybe I'll buy some more of your hardware, upgrading my OS install in the process. Otherwise, I'm sticking with my current Mac, and my current...

What Apple should have done 1,624 Views / 16 Replies  
What Apple should have done was, rather than make iCloud, create a programming API that would be used by Mac and iOS applications, and would be satisfied by cloud hosting companies like Dropbox, and...

It's good to be king 2,007 Views / 25 Replies  
Apple's phones are overpriced. They can demand the premium because they are seen as delivering a superior product. In some ways this is an accurate assessment, especially if you're a non-techy and...

I for one have been disappointed by Apple's releases over the last few years, beginning with Lion. Not a fan of that OS version or it's successor. Mavericks, despite having a name that reminds me of...

The S4 roll-out did nothing for its public image. The company seems dorky and out of touch. Anyway this feature war in smart-phones is silly IMO. Android has 'functionally' caught up to Apple, so...

Dated 1,606 Views / 21 Replies  
The iPhone UI is definitely looking a bit dated. Here are my top wishes:
*Different sized icons. Some apps are used more frequently, so you should be able to make the icons larger.
*Widgets. This...

Given how easy it is to scratch, I think Apple should have had a third 'color': natural. The iPhone would look great in natural brushed silver/aluminum. I wouldn't walk around with either the black...

I agree with Spheric Harlot. Sandboxing seems like an enormous overreach on Apple's part. As a Mac developer I'll point out that my company has been chasing after Apple's shifting platform for over a...

It's interesting that some people commenting here seem to know how to write without knowing how to read.

Arguments pro and con aside, while I found the the new scrolling direction disconcerting at first, there's a preference for it, so no big deal. However, there are plenty of things about 10.7 that you...

I would agree with you if you're using a track-pad. However, I think it's arguable at best if you're using a mouse-wheel. Physically I imagine the bottom of the mouse wheel (opposite side from my...

Sticking with Snow Leopard 3,661 Views / 50 Replies  
There is a tent-pole feature of Lion, though it wasn't ready when Lion shipped, and that's iCloud. Unfortunately I find the rest of Lion so distasteful that I am seriously considering migrating to...

The dumbing down of OS X continues apace.
There was nothing in Lion that enticed me to upgrade, and there's less in ML.
I'm sticking with Snow Leopard as long as I can.

Was a long-time Eudora user, and held out as long as I could. Sad to see it fade into the past.

I'm more or less happy with Mail. The one feature from Eudora that I really miss is the ability to...

Actually, I think this is one of those changes that some people are going to love, and some people are going to hate.
