Re: How much Ram in them iPads?

Welp, if this is true I'm swinging from a reburbed air 1 for my second iPad to a new Air 2.

Re: iPad Air 2 - 1 GB RAM?

Well, 99% of buyers may not KNOW

You'll notice that Apple doesn't list the amount of RAM on the tech specs of the current iPad. We only know because people tear them down. Apple argues that RAM doesn't tell the whole story, the [more]

Re: Apple Invite

I can't wait to get my paws on a new gen iPad so my girlfriend and I can stop fighting over mine.

The only problem is...I kind of want the new one (solely for the additional ram which I really hope it will have) but it seems like giving a [more]

Re: How Saphire investment went bust

With Apple typically silent, the best speculation is that things fell apart at two stages of the process. First, GT couldn’t deliver in the expected quantities soon enough. That might have limited sapphire to perhaps only the top-end models of the [more]

Re: Samsung makes iPhone 5

It seems kind of odd to use nicer materials to make a phone that's cheaper and less capable than the S5. I wonder if the S6 will use the same types of materials...

Fine technical products, but late copycats. Got no respect.

Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

Um... we should tip because hotel employees get injured a lot? Huh?

Why not push for a safer working environment?


If there were a hotel chain that was known to pay better wages to the housekeeping staff (the Costco of the [more]

Re: A dozen reasons the Apple Watch will fail

Just how much do you sweat?

Over the course of a 2 hour run...quite a bit!

That's good news that it's water resistant.

Re: A dozen reasons the Apple Watch will fail

It seems to me that it would still be useful for 2 of the 3 activities you mentioned, unless you usually run and bike underwater.

I actually would worry about this because I have killed 3 iPod Nanos with sweat from running. The water [more]

Re: A dozen reasons the Apple Watch will fail

All the uses seem like gimmicks, but the payment feature might be the one saving grace.

I feel like it won't be very popular. It doesn't do much, and if you want something for style it seems like it would make more sense to buy an actual [more]

Condo fees and DTI?

Are condo fees always added into the front end ratio? And at if so at 100%? I've seen that some sites don't mention them, some say they are, and a few places have said it depends on the lender.

They make a pretty significant difference, and [more]

Re: Apple Could Become Obsolete

But if you're going to make the claim that Apple could become irrelevant in just 2-3 years, as this hedge fund manager does

But he didn't make that claim. A headline writer put those words in his mouth.

Re: Apple Could Become Obsolete

That's a flamboyant headline but that guy is just saying the same thing that Warren Buffet does -- tech companies are complicated and change so quickly that he has a hard time knowing a good investment.

Apple could easily have a string of [more]

Re: MSFT not learning from its mistakes

Microsoft is trying to build a holy grail product that you can carry with you and drop into a cradle where it connects to a display and acts like a desktop.

It could partly just be an initiative to stop duplicating effort, which also [more]
