Tim Cook Says Laptops Are Dead, Steve Wozniak Says Otherwise

Apple CEO Tim Cook caused many a MacBook user to scream out in anguish recently when he insisted that he couldn’t see a single reason for anyone to buy a PC anymore, especially since Apple just released the iPad Pro, the latest iPad model that comes complete with pencil and yoga-mat keyboard. With Cook pushing the iPad Pro and saying that things like iMacs and MacBook Pros were obsolete, many people started to question their very existence of their Apple products. Everyone except Steve Wozniak that is.

Wozniak, who co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs back in the day, was speaking at a conference organized by New Relic recently where he was quoted saying that he continues to be “more of a laptop-based guy.” For the Woz, the flexibility of a laptop contrasts that of a tablet which he believes “has been limited for me”. Wozniak isn’t alone here either. Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services for Apple Eddy Cue recently told CNN that he likes the iPad Pro because “I consumer a lot more than I create,” rather than Cook’s insistence that this was now a productivity tool.

Now let’s be real for a second. I highly doubt that Cook believes that the PC market is officially dead. I mean, if he really did believe that then why would he launch new and tantalizing MacBooks? Reports for Apple’s latest MacBook line have been hailed as a “groundbreaking design” by many reviewers. No the real reason behind Cook’s comments is that he is trying to sell what he wants to sell right now, a giant iPad that has the potential to reverse the 20% year-on-year decline in Apple’s tablet sales. Naturally, neither Cook nor Apple has responded to requests for comment.

Wozniak doesn’t really seem to be on the flashy new tech bandwagon. When Apple released the Apple Watch Wozniak wasn’t 100% behind it. He stated that he sometimes forgets to put on his own Apple Watch and realizes that he doesn’t really miss it all that much. However, he did agree that the device was improving though it is still unclear exactly how he thinks it is getting better. All-in-all, the Woz has been pretty critical of Apple lately. Wozniak was also quoted saying, “I don’t like being in the Apple ecosystem. I don’t like being trapped. I like being independent.”

Wozniak has been known to really enjoy some Android products alongside with Apple ones. Just last year he suggested that Apple should release an Android smartphone. In terms of his commitment to laptops, it is very easy to believe that tech developers release new product forms that have the sole purpose of making money. One of the bigger problems with the iPad is the fact that many people believe they already know precisely what the iPad is good for, and what it isn’t good for, and feel that older models do just as fine as the newer ones.

I really admire the fact that Wozniak isn’t going along with the iPad Pro craze from Apple just for the sake of Apple loyalty. Steve Wozniak has been a lot of things in his life, nonetheless of which is an independent man of his own fruition, which is something this world needs more of.

This video came out today on Apple’s YouTube page. After it was up for only two hours, it already had 20,000 views and currently has almost 80,000. The main point to the video is to show off that they are using clean energy. They are building a 40-megawatt solar farm in China that will power all of their offices across the country, all of their offices are powered with clean energy already, and they are generating 12 million kilowatt hours of energy in Oregon using hydropower.

This is one of the most genius marketing tactics for Apple. It may not seem that significant, but there is a lot to this whole idea. Across many different developing countries, there is a huge wave of consumer consciousness that includes issues like sustainability. This is a bigger factor than ever right now. 55% of global respondents in Nielsen’s survey say that they are willing to pay more for products and services from companies that dedicate themselves to creating a positive social and environmental impact. That is an increase in 50% in 2012 and 45% in 2011. Regionally, respondents in Asia-Pacific (64%), Latin America (63%) and Middle East/Africa (63%) exceed the global average and have increased 9, 13 and 10 percentage points since 2011. So knowing that, you can see why this is such a big deal, and why the video is absolutely genius on Apple’s part. Check it out!

Apple Secretly Updates Entire MacBook Pro Family Just In Time for Christmas

2011 MacBook ProEarly this morning Apple unveiled updates to the company’s entire MacBook Pro lineup, which is said to bring faster processors, improved performances and bigger hard drives without increasing the price. The unannounced updates have been expected since around the middle of September with faster MacBook models available in time for the 2011 Christmas season.

The 13″ MacBook Pro comes in two different configurations, the first being an entry-level configuration with a retail price of $1,199 comes with an Intel Core i5 processor. The second model is slightly faster and comes with an Intel Core i7 processor for $1,499.

Both models have received slight increases in speed as well as bigger hard drives. The 13″ entry-level model comes with an all new 2.4GHz processor and increases its storage space from 320GB to 500GB. The faster model gets a newer version of the Core i7 at 2.8GHz and also receives a larger 750GB hard drive, a bump up from the original 500GB.

The 15″ MacBook Pro also comes in two iterations, the cheaper being $1,799 and the more expensive one costing $2,199. Both of these models take advantage of the quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and both have received an increase in processor speed with the slower of the two increasing from 2.0GHz to 2.2GHz and the faster increasing from 2.2GHz to 2.4GHz.

In addition to that, the graphics processing hardware has also been upgraded with new discrete graphics cards from AMD. The $1,799 model gets an upgrade to the AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB of dedicated memory and the $2,199 model upgrades to the AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1GB of dedicated memory.

Finally, the 17″ MacBook Pro is also getting upgraded in terms of processing and graphics. This model, which will run you $2,499, comes with a new quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and the new AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 1GB of dedicated memory. In addition to that, the 17″ MacBook Pro, as well as the 13″ and 15″ models, can be purchased with an additional 512GB of solid-state drive storage.

All of these new models are listed on Apple’s site as being in stock with free shipping, though the new models may not yet be available. While these five models have received an incremental upgrade, the improved performance and hardware, along with the price remaining the same, is definitely something that will please customers and something that will keep Apple in better competition with new Windows devices soon to receive Intel’s new Ivy Bridge processors in the early part of next year.

Updated MacBook Pros May Be Coming Before the Holidays

2011 MacBook ProAccording to a new report from Apple, the company’s new MacBook pro Series could be the next Apple product in line for a hardware upgrade. AppleInsider, who cites multiple anonymous sources that, according to the site, have “proven insight into Apple’s future product plans”, states that Apple plans on introducing new models of the MacBook Pro with faster Intel processors.

These new models are said to be shipping in time for this year’s holiday shopping season though the source has stated that we may see these new MacBook Pros as early as this month. Regardless of when we get them, a lot of questions are being raised about these new models, especially in terms of how much of an improvement we are getting.

AppleInsider has stated that Intel’s latest series of quad-core Core i7 chips will be added to the new MacBook Pros. These chips come in at 2.4GHz, 2.5GHz or 2.7GHz and are sure to mesh well with Apple’s popular notebook. These processors are also an improvement over the current 2.0GHz, 2.2GHz and 2.3GHz in the current 15″ and 17″ models.

The last update Apple performed on its MacBook Pro line occurred back in February which brought Intel’s Sandy Bridge CPUs to the entire fleet of MacBook Pro computers. In addition to that, the update also added Thunderbolt, the impressively fast new port that came from a technical collaboration between Apple and Intel.

Aside from that, other changes to the MacBook Pro line consisted of the move to Intel’s integrated graphics and GPUs from AMD as well as a jump to FaceTime HD cameras. However, despite the somewhat recent update, interest in a complete MacBook Pro overhaul remains.

Apple’s MacBook Air saw a nice new overhaul last October which brought the laptop the title of Apple’s “Next Generation of MacBooks”. Multiple reports that surfaced back in July suggest that Apple is working on potentially expanding the MacBook line to include a bigger 15″ model. However, it is still unclear as to whether or not that means a 15″ MacBook Air or a new design on the MacBook Pro line.
