    Agreed, Mac is fail. And what the hellll??? It's been barely an year since the iPhone 4 released, and iPhone 5 rumours are popping around?? Gah, I might as well wait for the iPhone 519 that has a built-in toilet and convertible car that pops out by pressing the "Release My Car" button. And of course, one that will talk.

    The assumptions made in this article are wildly implausible. The next iteration of the iPhone will definitely not have this functionality (if Apple is seriously planning to implement it at any point). The infrastructure simply isn't there, nor the consumer acceptance of "cloud computing" and the security implications that come with it. This proposed tech also is not "remote computing," more an alternative to it (eg portable computing).

    That being said, it's an interesting idea and definitely grounds for a huge paradigm shift in portable computing if it ever hits the market.

    Whatever it is, my claim still stands so meh [​IMG] go 5 years ahead and what you have? An iPhone 8 or maybe 9

    Apple is just milking it. Lol.
    It's just another Final Fantasy series (of course the iPhone is a smartphone but still) being milked to 10+ versions except this time, by Apple.

    It's not the cost, its the version digit that matters in my claim.

    Haha, yeah, you'll never know. Apple might also do something that lets you recover your password for your Mac, obviously, but I still dislike Mac. But for some people like my mom, she sometimes doesn't unload some luggage for months [​IMG]

    Also, as to the news article, the tech is pretty useless. Where else do you see Macs other than A) being used by someone else at a coffee shop or B) on sale at a store?

    Like IE9? Windows 7? Chrome 8.0?

    Not sure how you can fault a company for continuing to improve their product.

    Just to backup Urza's point:

    The iPod Touch 1st gen adds the multi-touch graphical user interface to the iPod line. It is the first iPod with wireless access to the iTunes Store, and also has access to Apple's App Store, enabling content to be purchased and downloaded directly on the device.

    The second generation iPod Touch features external volume controls, a built-in speaker, a contoured back, built-in Nike+, Bluetooth support, and the ability to connect a microphone

    The new 3rd generation iPod Touch includes faster hardware (the same microprocessors, graphics engine, and RAM as the iPhone 3GS), a slightly lower battery life, voice control, light sensor, and bundled earphones with a remote and microphone.

    The 4th gen features Apple's Retina display and two cameras; one for FaceTime and the other for photos and HD video recording. It also contains Apple's A4 for faster processing, a microphone for communication and voice memos and a three-axis gyroscopic sensor which enables the device to recognize approximately how far, fast, and in which direction it has moved in space.[/p]

    And you still won't be able to replace the battery yourself.

    No, you really can't. This goes far beyond simply running modularized applications on an unaltered and potentially compromised system.

    Yeah, maybe for the security purposes, but for me, the "user concept" stays the same : to feel like home.
