Poor Mac Pro... it's like Apple doesn't even bother.

The thing that kinda gets to me is the fact Apple just refuses to discount their products. Them not updating the Mac Pro is one thing, but to sell it like it's state-of-the-art hardware is just criminal in my opinion.

Passbook in iOS6 is the first step to be able to go out without having a wallet in your pocket. NFC payments are coming up next in the new iPhone.

My old model is still fine - I just switched the GPU and slapped more memory into it + SSD and woosh it flies.

Very few "PC guys" can put similar hardware on the table even now.

I tend to agree. Passbook was really all they could show without the hardware. I was reading so many people complaining because they didn't show NFC off, but how can they unless they're ready to show off the hardware? And if it won't launch until the fall, showing it off now would kill their 4S sales.

Although, I read recently that sales have dropped off for the iPhone and it was theorized that it's due to the yearly updates. Which makes sense. I wouldn't recommend anyone get a new iPhone with an update coming out in around 3 to 4 months unless they absolutely had to have a new phone right now.

With all that being said, I really wish some of those apps for Passbook were out right now. I'd really like to play around with that app.

Not sure if serious... Because USB 2.0 is more USB than anyone will ever need? Looks at the MBP... Nope.

I'm wondering why its called AirMac Express / Extreme in Japan.
In Japan, the line of products is marketed under the brand AirMac due to previous registration by I-O Data.

Apart from the fact it won't be called iPhone 5 - yes, too soon.

Fall release for sure, which goes nicely with my contract renewal haha.

This time I'll be a day 1 adopter :laugh:

I'd put my money on the same things.

Glassed Silver:mac

*cough* :whistle:

Sorry for the thread resurrection, but it had to be done :laugh:

The new iPod nano looks really cool. Hope I can demo one at an Apple Store soon.

New iTunes looks pretty nice, too. I'm assuming it will be version 11. I hope it's finally rewritten in Cocoa, though. Also not surprised to see Ping is being retired, I don't think it ever really took off in the first place.

That already happened with version 10.

Can't believe they didn't use NFC to go with Passbook

Massive misstep, as well as payments they could have used NFC to transfer other data like maps, photos, contacts etc..

That meant Apple actually had to put something in the iPhone 5 worth mentioning. As we all know that's just a bridge too far for the company these days.

Can?t believe it either? I thought they would have come up with a revolution in that domain, which is still on their to-do list no matter what excuses they use for not including it in the iPhone 5.
