Anything you're interested in? It'd be nice if Apple released a new Mac Pro that wasn't too out there. iTunes is supposed to be killed off but not sure if they moved all of the iOS management functions to a new app.

that's gunna be a big one. did they finally decide they outsmarted themselves and are going to give us something similar to the cheesegrater and allow for upgrades in the box.

iTunes has been horrible for years, so I guess if they aren’t going to fix it they may as well kill it.

A better Apple TV experience.

The navigation is all over the board. ATV OS needs a stronger unified UX. Some apps (Netflix) are getting too deep and it's a pita to get back to the main screen.

I want Apple to lean harder on the networks to deliver true ability to cut the cord. It's not really "cutting the cord" when the user has to sign into the channel's website to authenticate their cable subscription to activate the app. I want to be able to subscribe directly to the channel. If I had cable TV I wouldn't need to use those apps, and vice versa.

My third complaint is about blackout programming. I don't live an MLS city, but I still want to watch MLS and not have games blacked out. Why is this even happening? I suppose I could workaround it with a VPN, but I should be able to just a fuckin game.

That’s Apple’s fault, companies can do that, but apple requires a 30% cut of their subscription revenue if you sign up through the app.

That ones sportsball’s fault. Just extracting moar money.

It won't be a cheesegrator methinks, as otherwise they wouldn't have taken so long to actually reveal it after aying they were working on a new Mac Pro. I believe it's going to be something different, rumor mill hints at something like a bunch of stackable Mac Mini-like modules. No idea if it will be a success or not.

mini types won't hold a full size high end vid card.
and if it won't, I see the real pro user crowd on mac pros getting smaller.
and more migrating away from the platform as they can.
I just wouldn't put it past them to engineer themselves into a corner again. When it comes to hardware lately Apple seems to run like an artistic architecture firm.

I bet they won't kill iTunes. Just split it. There will be an app for managing iOS devices, and an app for playing music on the mac. They make take away the ability to burn CDs. I haven't made CDs in a while, but I'd hate that.

Don't care much about a Mac Pro, but I'd take a headless iMac Pro with user upgradeable parts.

It's not gonna happen, but I think a convertible laptop is a good idea. Maybe with some weird MacOS/iOS hybrid operating system. More like Mac oS in laptop mode, more like iOS in tablet mode.

I stopped expecting Apple to make a computer I would be interested in 8 years ago. I see no reason to expect that to change.
On the desktop Apple basically ran out of ideas when they designed the g5 iMac and Mini and it has just been iterations on the same theme ever since.
Boring mediocrity.

They should make a fully featured phone that does/has everything the latest iphones do, but with a 5" screen. Only difference would be size, so 3 size options (with 3 storage capacity options each) for top of the line iPhones.

Then one 5" phone with 3 years old tech, that would still be a great phone, as the cheap option.

But what do I know? I don't run Apple.

But I'm great at fishful thinking. :D

A Mac Pro that isn’t owner upgradable is not a Mac Pro.

If they eff this one up, I’m done with the Mac OS.

Apple would have to really mess up the MacOS for me to ever think of switching to windows. It ain't perfect, but it's more perfect for me than the alternative.

I get enough windows at work. I would switch to Linux at home.
:shrug:

I really don't give a human waste. I'd be hard pressed to think of something about my system that actively annoys me and the few things that did I've figured out and dealt with long ago. My boyfriend is trying to convince me to switch to Kubuntu, but I really don't see the point. I have no emotional attachment to the software I use but I keep myself informed enough to know how to actually use it. There's nothing special or unique about my setup, so i don't encounter weird edge-case bugs. I'm reasonably sure I've spent far less time on fixing and maintaining my system then anyone with a hackintosh or a Linux system.
That being said, I'm not sure now if there will be a Mac Pro announced. It's the day before and there's no leaks or rumours more concrete then this one from way back. If Apple was releasing new hardware that people actually cared about I'd expect to see more that this.

If you have a typical desktop computer that you use for typical desktop stuff you won't spend any time fixing or maintaining a Linux system if you use a good mainstream distro like Mint or Ubuntu.
I have been using Mint for over 7 years now and it is as reliable as a woodburning stove. I have had to do basically zero maintenance. No defraging, no file system repairing, no repairing permissions. Linux needs none of that.
The only "maintenance" I do is run my update manager once in awhile. That's it. With Mint I have never, ever had an update cause trouble.
It just works.
If Linux was not solid, reliable and easy I would not be using it. I am far too lazy to put up with a wonky system.

And I haven't ever had to do any of that stuff either. I don't even have to deal with updates, as the system handles it when I'm away.

apple tv support for xbox and playstation controllers
I understand the dualshock as it's Bluetooth and works with almost everything, but I'm surprised about the Xbox controller as I thought it used something almost like WiFi? Or was that just the 360's controller?
