“Apple is everywhere following its most recent product announcements, which tell us a lot about the company’s future intentions,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld.
“The new iPads hit an expanding market at a time of transition from PC to tablet. The best tablets available today, their 64-bit support means they will remain so until the next iPad upgrade,” Evans reports. “They’ll sell millions… The iPad Pro is the iPad Air. As 64-bit creative apps appear across the next 12-months, don’t be too surprised to see notebook sales cannibalized. This is still the beginning.”
“The move to offer Mavericks for free surprised many,” Evans reports. “It places another pillar of superiority between Apple and Microsoft. The latter cannot easily offer its OS for free, as it doesn’t manufacture hardware [that sells in any meaningful quantities outside of game concoles – MDN Ed.].”
