Apple will be announcing new products on Thursday ... iMacs, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs (just rumours at the moment) ... a refresh is badly needed as the current range hasn't had any real innovations for years - apart from the retina displays.

I've swapped my Surface Pro 4 back for a MacBook Pro and thankfully I don't have to foot the bill for it. For a machine costing almost €2k ex VAT it is very underwhelming.

My Apple friends aren't gushing over the refreshed Macbook range as they usually would be. The Touch Bar seems to be coming in for a lot of criticism (why not just make the screen touch and if you must have a Touch Bar, why not put it above the trackpad?). Bumping up the prices by $200 for the lowest range models can't be good either.

The screen consumes pretty much the whole lid half of the clamshell. There is space on the keyboard side of the clamshell. So you end up with more screen area for less footprint.

Also, Apple screens are too beautiful to touch. Except when they're on an iPhone or iPod Touch. So basically, whenever there's touchscreen that's the right design decision, and whenever there isn't that's also the right design decision.

Because Apple.

First iteration of new any new macbook unibody range is always a little beta and Apple critics are some of the most vocal as they are usually hardcore fans. The have such a small product range but it's effective across so much of daily life this is to be expected.

Looking forward to the release of the iPhone8 to see what's in store not that it hasn't been the most heavily leaked iPhone release in a while. It was leaking before the iPhone7 was released. :o

Was watching people queuing up to pay £999 for an iPhone 10 today. There seems to be no shortage of stupid gullible people savvy tech users to keep Apple afloat for the time being.

Apple, first company to make it to 1 Trillion Market Cap.

Quote:
Hot on the heels of a stellar earnings report that saw Apple post an astounding $53.3 billion in quarterly revenue, the Cupertino-based company has since become the first company in history to reach a $1 trillion valuation. Apple shares have been rising steadily over the past few days, and the company’s the stock price briefly topped the $207.04 per share threshold just a short while ago. As a result, Apple has become the first company in history with a market cap in excess of $1 trillion.
