Apple looking to fully automate iPhone battery production, rumor says

03/24, 9:41am

Mac Pro, iMac lines said to be mostly automated

Apple is working to get iPhone batteries manufactured on fully automated production lines in 2014, supply chain sources claim. The company is already said to have mostly automated iMac and Mac Pro production, the only exceptions being materials and final assembly. Apple is allegedly interested in reducing the manpower needed for its products; this may be due to rising minimum wages in China, and problems like labor shortages and high turnover rates, linked to the fact that many young people don't want to work in manufacturing. Such jobs can often demand 60 or more hours a week in poor conditions.

High-end iMac or entry-level Mac Pro?

01/28, 5:27am

Entry-level Mac Pro makes for a tempting proposition for power users

Now that the long-awaited redesigned Mac Pro has reached the market, Mac power users have something of a dilemma when it comes to choosing a powerful Mac for the home. In our full review of the Mac Pro, it became quite apparent that the Mac Pro is a very powerful machine, but that its full power only revealed when running professional-class applications. Although Mac power users may not use their Mac for their profession, many opt to use professional applications made by Apple and third-party pro apps as well. In most instances, a high-end iMac has plenty of power to run the same applications as the Mac Pro. Yet, there is no denying that the new Mac Pro has incredible appeal, not only as the most powerful Mac that you can buy, but also as yet another stunning example of Apple's engineering and design prowess. As a power user, or Mac enthusiast, should you save some money and stick with an iMac, or should you realistically consider opting for a shiny new Mac Pro?

Report: domestic Mac sales up nearly 30 percent year-over-year

Recently-refreshed MacBooks, wide iMac availability credited

According to new data from retail analyst NPD, revealed in a note to investors from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, US Mac sales are up 29 percent from the year-ago quarter. In part, the figures come from the fact that the just-redesigned iMac was severely constrained in the year-ago quarter, with extremely limited supplies largely missing the holiday buying season entirely. In addition, the company has recently refreshed most of its Mac lineup to Intel's latest "Haswell" chip.

AMD Radeon HD 6970M video cards said to run exceptionally hot, fail early

Users who have a 27-inch "Mid 2011" iMac, which was sold between May of 2011 and October of 2012, may have a failure-prone video card that might need replacing, Apple has revealed. The company has started an official program to replace cards that have failed or are failing on iMacs up to three years after the initial purchase, even if the customer's original warranty has expired. Only select models of the 27-inch iMac with the AMD Radeon HD 6970M cards are affected, and customers who have already paid for repairs can be compensated.
