I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

I alluded to it above but the way I ended up with a Mac Pro circa 2010ish (maybe earlier?) was a design/marketing company getting rid of all their current Mac Pro machines that designers were using, and they were going straight to iMacs.

I have one friend who quit a photo toning/retouching job at G4nnett four or five years ago and I could have sworn they were heading in that direction but I'm not sure. Just texted her to ask.

iMac/thunderbolt displays are GOOD monitors, as are Dell Ultrasharp and other IPS screens, and good enough for most work, but when you get to the highest level of color critical stuff, it's a problem.

dan selzer, Friday, 4 November 2016 14:48 (one month ago) Permalink

Somehow the nicer IPS Dell displays were ordered for a while at work a few years ago and I managed to watch a few contractor offices like a vulture and did some strategic monitor swapping and I have dual 24" Ultrasharps ^_^

really wish they were retina pixel density, though

I may have *cough* played hooky from work *cough* yesterday afternoon for a while and was at the mall with the Apple store near here. They recently remodeled/expanded from a store that was way too small to a new one that is three storefronts wide. It's insane. There were at least three people in there asking about the new laptops, which aren't going to appear in stores for weeks.

I've been in some pretty big Apple stores and the triple-wide one still seemed a little ridiculous. Very pleasing to be able to move around without tripping over people.

mh 😏, Friday, 4 November 2016 15:19 (one month ago) Permalink

I also checked out that huge Microsoft Surface desktop thing at their mall kiosk. 28" for a monitor seems reeeeally big when you're pivoting it to be close enough to touch. I would not be too sad if someone dropped one on my work desk.

btw guys I have sold out completely and own Powerbeats 3, betraying all of my internet audiophile forum nerdo credibility

The cloudy syncy bit didn't seem to work on my laptop but I think it's due to having iCloud turned off. But on iOS, the pairing was very good and they instantly showed up as an audio option on my iPad -- if you have iCloud sync turned on, they instantly get added to all your devices when they're on and in range. Was listening to music on my phone, picked up my iPad and told it to play music from that device and it instantly switched. Walked to my car listening to music off my phone, started the car and as soon as bluetooth paired, the music continued on my car stereo

I have two Dell monitors, a 24" Dell Ultrasharp and a shittier 19" that i use as a secondary monitor and don't do photoshop/lightroom work in. I would like to upgrade to this:

I'd probably do horrible things to replace my work monitors with one of those bigass LG deals that Apple is selling, not that I have any computers capable of driving it

mh 😏, Friday, 4 November 2016 15:54 (one month ago) Permalink

I don't think this sucker has a glossy screen! Their own hardware might be taking a mediocre direction on professional image applications for the minute, but this thing looks very good

mh 😏, Friday, 4 November 2016 15:58 (one month ago) Permalink

I'm sure it's beautiful but I'd go with the NEC or Eizo. They're built for it and include software to help the calibration process. The better Eizo monitos actually self-calibrate with a little meter that pops out of the bottome of the screen automatically.

dan selzer, Friday, 4 November 2016 16:51 (one month ago) Permalink

I do think the Dell ultrasharps are actually LG panels anyway. I have a third monitor that's an LG, they make the eIPS panels that make IPS affordable and are why those Dell Ultrasharps are 300 bucks instead of 700 bucks. I'm sure this is a great monitor, esp for video, but with print I'd stick with the above.

price drops on all the dongles + the new LG displays - I guess apple is 'listening'? lol

Agreed. I think I want of those more than the new MBP. Gawd I'm getting such a "maybe you should wait until the second generation of these" sense here.

the inevitable price drop, the new cpus, the 32gb ram ceiling &c.

Autumn Almanac, Sunday, 6 November 2016 11:27 (one month ago) Permalink

So what's the ideal point now, price-/general availability-wise, to buy the former MBP, ideally new and not refurbished? Do they get rotated out soon? I fear this question may be terribly obvious, but didn't follow the policy in recent years.

There's nothing that can drive the LG apart from the new MBP, is that right?

idk if this will work forever since it's contingent on hooking to how Xcode can invoke the touchbar, but I was playing with this:

mh 😏, Monday, 7 November 2016 15:51 (one month ago) Permalink

two weeks pass...

touch bar is fine. sliding volume is nice, so far nothing else matters. i miss tactile feedback but not too much, the fact that it's at the top of the keyboard so accuracy is less important helps. i'm working on something where it would be sorta useful, showing context-sensitive shortcuts depending on what modifier keys you're holding down.

force touch, though. i spent a frustrating five minutes this morning just trying to drag things. i think i eventually figured out the right amount of pressure, but file management shouldn't require fine motor control.

0 / 0 (lukas), Wednesday, 23 November 2016 17:14 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i agree! i was having the exact same problem with force touch. so frustrating. and when i type i keep accidentally hitting the touch bar by accident. this must've happened with the function keys on the last MBP but with less force, so i never noticed. but you don't have to hit the touch bar with any real force to have it register your touch. and the arrow keys are annoyingly placed too.

not too happy with this

the late great, Wednesday, 23 November 2016 18:31 (two weeks ago) Permalink

whoops that got garbled, i meant that i was hitting the function keys with the same amount of force but not enough force to get them to register a keystroke

the late great, Wednesday, 23 November 2016 18:31 (two weeks ago) Permalink

oo! update: disabled "force touch and haptic feedback" under trackpad settings which helped a lot.

yeah new arrow keys, why

my 5s broke*, so i am getting a 64gb SE. i'm kind of excited about it. having that extra space will be nice. somehow it's cheaper too w/ my verizon plan, i don't really know why.

*i dropped in the toilet about a month ago, it still partially worked but the touchscreen functionality suffered a lot and would fail all the time, i kind of learned how to dictate texts to siri most of the time but eventually that stopped being reliable and became such a pain in the ass to even send a text message that in a fit of rage i threw the phone and the screen shattered. it was embarrassing but i should've gotten a new phone right after the water damage anyway.

my 6s is eligible under https://www.apple.com/support/iphone6s-unexpectedshutdown/. last time they did a minor repair on my phone they screwed up somehow and gave me a brand new one, which is fine with me.

Oh wow, I didn't realize that existed - my 6S has been randomly shutting down now at like 15 - 30% battery life and I just assumed it was shitty planned obsolescence in a phone over a year old. This is kind of amazing.
