Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by Bolicious, Aug 3, 2006.
The only thing new that I notice is the Leopard Disk.
What's the icon of the three balls over the spotlight icon?
yeah what's below automator
uh, and the intel power macs there in broad day. those are due any day now.
That looks like some sort of networking thing as they are the network globe icons. I assume that is what the new Bootcamp/parallels logo will be.
PowerMacs, yes. That doesn't guarantee that they are Intel.
Did anyone notice 2 key products missing from this banner?
The 5th gen iPod and the Cinema Displays, both of which are expected to be revamped this year.
its almost here
Edit: this icon is the XGrid icon.
I knew it had something to do with networking
are the core duo's 64bit processors??
The G5 PowerMac is
This is why I think the PowerMac is not being upgraded to the Intel chips just yet.
64bit for Intel is a little bit of a tricky discussion. All of the recent P4s have actually had support for 64 bit instructions built in. Intel calls this EMT64 but its been disabled on most of the chips, probably because Intel realized they were slow to market with an x86-64 processor so they argued that x86-32 wasn't dead yet and decided to try to "prove" this point. The mobile chips, like Pentium M and Core Duo haven't supported x86-64. The Core 2 line is probably the first line they'll actually promote as EMT64/x86-64 compatible.
You know, I really hope they will support the installation of Vista onto the Intel Macs. Otherwise, there goes that contract.
Crap, there was something that was gonna go down at WWDC that I couldn't wait for... but I can't remember what! I guess it's a good thing, time will go by quicker!
so, is there a 64bit version of OS X, like windows has xp 32bit and 64bit? I'm just affraid i'll be left behind with software when everything will be moving to 64 bit
Yes but the new intel chips are 64 bit and the ole yonahs ones aren't.
can't wait till monday
No shit, I get waaaay too excited about this shit.
I believe in XP x64 you can run 32bit apps.
In Apple's case, they do not want to confuse the customer, so a single install is more likely.
aren't Steve keynotes typically on tuesdays?
oh and for iPhone
The keynote is Monday morning.
