MacDailyNews Take: It’s snappy!


    1. How old are you?

      Ever heard of a IIci? SE30? IIfx? Classic? Quad 800? Quad 8150? Apple IIc ring a bell?

      Ponder this…

      adjective pa·tient \ˈpā-shənt\

      Simple Definition of patient
      : able to remain calm and not become annoyed when waiting for a long time or when dealing with problems or difficult people
      : done in a careful way over a long period of time without hurrying

      Apple, once it gains occupancy @ Campus 2 will be a sea change to the Macintosh.

      Time is on Apples side. They also have a couple of nickels in the bank 😉

      I WANT AN UMPA LOOMPA DADDY!!!! & I WANT IT NOOOOOW!! Spoiled tech dolt. Go buy a DELL!

      1. Uuuhhh didn’t Apple corner the maket for people who crave the newest, most amazing and fantastic technology now? You know, the Apple who had people camping out at Apple stores to get the latest and greatest? Are all those people spoiled? Are all the people who got the iPhone, then 2, 3, 4, 5 then 6/6+, and plan on getting the 7, are the all spoiled too?

        I guess, according to you, they are all toddlers that are coddled by Apple on a yearly basis? Why don’t you go to an Apple Store and yell at everyone there for being spoiled.


        I have been a faithful Apple Customer for YEARS, so I’ve had a hand in helping them be the biggest baddest company on the face of the earth. It’s not unreasonable for me to want an updated mac.

          1. I have an ugly as hell, but very powerful, Mac Pro trashcan that I ordered in early 2015.

            Everyone who has an iPhone 6 has a phone that does everything they need it to do. What would have happened if Apple did not introduce the 7 this year? Pandemonium. Stock drops, emergence of #iPhoneisdead abd #appleisdoooomed on twitter.

            1. So it does everything you need it to right? Regardless of what the rabble of tech people who quite honestly opine about absolute bullshit and give positive reviews to exploding phones say, you do not need a new phone or a new Mac every year. You have a Mac Pro, that’s going to last you a while… We just got rid of our 08’s from the server room and demoted them to media encoders, but they’re still very useful. My personal machine is a 2012 MacBook Pro, it works great, runs all current software and multiple virtual machines, and multiple displays. I just think that complaining is a little ridiculous when you have something that does what you need and does it well. Just like idiots who update their graphics card every 6 months to get 1 more frame on a video game, it makes no difference. If there’s a massive generational improvement and it’ll help you? Upgrade. If not? Don’t. It’s not the end of the damned world.

            2. Also the stock has literally nothing to do with product announcements, sales or anything else. If it did? Apple wouldn’t trade at a 10-1? p/e… Apples share price has nothing to do with reality or fundamentals, it’s pumped and dumped by lots of institutional investors to make a quick buck. If you stay in it for the long haul however? You’ll make a lot of money… The trend is way up for the last 18 years.

  1. Now with MacOS, my MBP seems somehow older but still snappy. Perhaps the new OS has some Viagra in it to put lead in my MBP’s pencil.

    I also like Siri on the Mac.
