You're on a Huawei to Hell, US Sec State Pompeo warns allies: Buy Beijing's boxes, no more intelligence for you
Re: Yes, I know, but Apple --
Is that really happening to you? From my experience OSX will only give you notifications of point updates to the current version of the OS you're using regularly. It won't harass you with notifications that there's a new version of the OS unless you actually go to the Store, where it's then featured quite boldly. It may have changed as Apple try to get people who aren't currently on El Capitan to upgrade so I don't know for sure but as I said, I've never seen this before and I camped on both Snow Leopard and Mavericks for a very long time.

Come on El Reg. I know you need to pay the bills but this is just embarrassing.
P.S. I work in the industry and are always looking at ways like this for our studio to work with freelancers remotely but this "article" is a glorified press release/click bait/puff piece.
They aren't the company formaly known as SGI. A company called Rackspace or Rackable or something (Sorry can't quite remember) bought out the remaining assets of SGI when it went bankrupt and then changed it's name to SGI. The colours if the new SGI logo come from the old Rackspace logo.
Re: So does that mean they can, uh...
You've been able to boot to Android on a 3G for years (omniboot IIRC). I did it on mine when I had one, wasn't much more than a proof of concept as you couldn't use most of the features but it was fun showing arrogant Android lovers that I was in fact, also running Android.
Re: Price comparison
I guess the HP would be about the same price as the Dell if it had a card then? When I purchased my octocore 3 years ago Apples entry level card was only a GT210 or something so I had to go for the 4870 option. You're right about the Nvidia drivers for Mac, they're hopeless. I've looked at a Quadro 4000 from time to time for CUDA and 10bit display (under Windows as OSX doesn't support 10bit (WTF Apple!)) but a colleague of mine has a Quadro 4800 and it isn't as good as my 4870 when using 3D apps under OSX so for the price I can't justify it.
Don't know why I was down-voted earlier but anyone who thinks any of the default cards Apple supply on the Mac Pros are workstation level is dreaming.
Like a lot of tech it depends on the application as to its worth. On home desktops and HTPC's it's probably not as usefull as something like VLC however in film it's used a lot with camers such as the RED having a specific quicktime only plugin. Also with the ability to step frame by frame through a movie it's extreamly usefull for reviewing animation.
I did the same thing with a 2007 MBP 17" recently. It's a really good way to add a boot SSD and also retain a large data drive. Not sure how this will work with this new MBP however as a previous post eludes to the fact that you can't use this port while the lightspeed one is also being used?
Oh come on!
Seriously! People think the next iPad will be 3D enabled? Realy! Obviously Apple will evaluate the Nintento 3DS and see how the general public respond to it. Then the'll look at it's economical impact on the price of the next iPhone then once it's released there it'll be implemented in the next iPad! Is'nt this the logical process?
RE: crappy standard-def
I think you'll find the originals were shot on 35mm film and that when digitized is 4k (i.e. 4096x4096 pixels) in size. Most likely at 32bit colour depth as well. Therefore there will be no issue with resolution or image quality when digitally remastering from the original stock. Especially when the target output is 1920x1080 pixels with H264 encoding for a TV (10bpc colour) or computer (8bpc colour) viewing.
Just my 2c.
RE: Could be wrong
Sorry that's incorrect. iOS 4.2.1 is available for the 3G iPhone.
The thing that I don't like about this is the implication that this is an incremental update, which is how the public will (and are obviously) perceiving it. As such the impliction is that it will be installable on all devices that can currently run any iteration of iOS 4.x.
If it can't run on older hardware (for whatever reason) then it should get a whole number version name update.
I relay dislike this practices myself of v XX.X.XX a few software vendors like to use (I'm looking at you mr Forefox 3.6.15 and Apple OSX 10.4.11). there's no need for that many double digit sub numbers (I'm sorry I don't know what there correct term is, percentages are they?),I wish they would stop doing it.
Quit Ya Bitchin' people.
F**K off with your panning of this release. There's a corporate conflict between with Apple and Vodafone NZ at the moment (something to do with %'s and what not) and this is the result so don't worry about it. It will all be resolved asap as Apple can't do with out Vodafones income in the NZ market (Yes it's small globally but every cent counts (watch the pennies and the pounds will take care of theme selves I think mum said?)) ) and everyone will have there shiny new devices soon enough so calm down. For my two sense worth, I'm happy to wait until November when my contract runs out as I'm interested in upgrading my (Unlocked)3G, I am thinking of a 4 but we'll see how android dose by then?
Agggh you bet me to it.
I was just about to mention DPaint. I loved messing about with that as well. Between that Brilliance, ImageFX and ADPro (PhotoPaint was never as good as Photoshop by the end) Image manipulation was so much fun.
Sorry to divert away from MacPaint but I'd never used a mac until about 2001.
