The Macalope Weekly: It's the little things
Posted 15 June 2013 - 07:04 AM
It will be interesting to see the final Mac Pro and get some benchmarks when it is released. The price points will also be interesting along with how many Apple sells.
20Gbps Thunderbolt just is not as fast as internal PCIe. I wonder if that will be enough bandwidth or if there are too many Pros with edge cases that require internal PCIe slots? And only 4 RAM slots, why not 8, why not allow 256 GB of RAM?
This is going to be interesting...

The Verge is bigger than CNBC?
Truth be told, the Macalope didn't find Patel's piece all that offensive. He thinks Patel was off base in claiming no one was saying Apple couldn't innovate at all. At the very least a lot of pundits were loose enough with their words that it sounds like they were saying that. The thing Patel doesn't really address is the double standard he implies, that for Apple "innovation" means something entirely different than what it means for Apple's competitors. But the horny one's open to the argument that Schiller shouldn't have made the remark, depending on how it's made.
Anyway, it was a week rife with stupidity. Even this mythical beast can't get all of them. Besides, there's always next week.

It's always fun to watch those losers straining themselves to move the goalposts. "iOS doesn't have this, or that, or that, or... what, they have that now?" (Scrambles down list of talking points.) Okay, they have that, but they don't have this, or these or...."

I'm not sure Mr Lope still reads the Verge. I'm not sure their editors do, either...

My biggest issue with Patel's piece is him lambasting Apple for failing to reinvent a product category in the last three years. He essentially said that Steve Jobs disrupted 5 industries every day before breakfast. Ripe for a good shellacking by the Macalope. But, he is only one half-Mac, half-woodland creature, so I'll cut him some slack. This time!!!

Disappointed that the Macalope didn't dismantle this hatchet job: http://www.theverge....re-my-ass-apple What's the matter, Mr. Lope? Don't have the antlers to take on the big boys? I'm not sure Mr Lope still reads the Verge. I'm not sure their editors do, either...
But what is the Verge, it is more of a his master voice pet and the biggest doggie is its editor.

Well, that's an insult to only one half of the human race. I personally have great respect for the estrogen-based gender. I wonder about the prospects of the author of those comments in dealing favorably with contingents of that group in the near future.
