Hello, I’m a great fan of your reviews, and I love the amount of
imagination you have to propose new ways to improve technology.

I disagree with #1 I think the problem with Windows 8.1 is that Microsoft
tried to combine mobile and desktop. I hate it when I’m on any Windows 8.1
laptop or computer. They need to keep the formula they have with the 2
separate systems so they don’t mess up either ones experience. other then
that I like all the other ideas. I’m not big on things like the mini or
chrome cast but I can see how people would really like them. even though
three made me scratch my head a little I think it would really make android
users consider coming over. as long as it maintained all the connectivity
with macs that ios has. It would even be cooler if Apple then allowed mod
support for different themes to be run like cyanogenmod

Creative ideas! Here’s the way I see the products you proposed:
1. Motion sensing Mac computer – Seems like a good idea at first, and cool
mid-air gestures on an iMac/Mac laptop would be awesome, right? Well as you
mentioned in your video, it’d give the user a bit of a workout. Truth is
large desktop machines with *touch* input existed, and they never took off.
Why? Ergonomics. Waving your arms around in front of you for hours and
hours causes quite a bit of strain and can lead to neck/back pain. This
idea could, however, work in combination with the mouse and keyboard, where
the user could just switch between the two input methods at their
convenience. I doubt however that this kind of functionality would justify
the added cost of adding sensors to every Mac computer.
2. Touch display Mac computers – This could work on a laptop, but not on a
desktop mac for the reasons mentioned in point 1. Also, the OSX environment
is absolutely not meant for touch screens. That is exactly why Apple has a
completely different UI on iOS and why many people dislike Windows 8. I
installed Windows 8 onto my non-touch screen iMac and it was a nightmare. A
lot of the gestures were very awkward to perform on my mouse and keyboard.
Windows 8 proved that combining the mobile and desktop UI didn’t really
work, at least for Microsoft. The way Apple is headed is not that direction
of combining the desktop and mobile experience, and I don’t see Apple
heading in that direction any time soon. They really want to keep the
mobile and desktop experiences separated and for a good reason I think.
3. Apple Android smartphone – Now I won’t pick a platform battle here, but
it’s a bad idea in my opinion. Apple is all about making products that *just
work*, and building them with a degree of fit and finish that almost no
other manufacturer can match. That is what Apple does. iOS is extremely
efficient with memory, power consumption and hardware support, which is
why, for example, iOS devices have so little ram. Less ram —> Less power
consumed —> Smaller battery —> Prettier devices. I could go on an on about
why Apple would completely have to redesign the hardware to run Android, I
just don’t see Apple investing millions in R&D designing hardware meant to
run an inferior system architecture. Apple also makes a ton of money off
the App Store, so why would they include a competing software platform
where the money goes to their main competitor? Also, Woz is super cool and
all, but he doesn’t have much to do with Apple anymore. People still see
him as an Apple spokesperson though, which he isn’t.
4. Mac Mini Pro – Cool idea, completely agree, even though it’d be pretty
unlikely. I’m pretty sure Apple does a lot of market analytics and just
sees that there’s no market for a BYODKM Mac. This could be changed if they
made the Mac Mini suck less, though.
5. Chromecast-style Apple TV – Again, completely agree with this one. Apple
hasn’t really changed the form factor of the Apple TV. They could totally
fit the hardware into a little stick and make the design less intrusive (no
silly little box to place somewhere around the TV). However your proposal
on an iPad interface on a TV wouldn’t really work – The UI would have to
specifically be designed for a TV environment. I think Apple has left the
Apple TV alone for now, because there are rumours they are looking into
creating their own TV, but who knows.

I don’t agree with the first one, I would hate touch screen, I would like a
real mouse and mechanical keyboard

wow really, are you being serious…… an iphone with android on it? are
you kidding me. Hey that sure is the best way to kill the cash cow that is
the iphone. A. it would entirely erode their differentiation. B. it would
dilute their brand name if they ran a OS running on 80 dollar cheapo
devices. I buy a iphone for iOS, and i like that it is different from
anything anywhere else. that one of the reasons why i buy it.
Steve Wozniak said that, but it was in context to a question he was asked.
Besides i respect wozniak, but wozniak is a dumbass, not with computer
engineering but with bussiness understanding. Even wozniak admits that
apple exists only because of Steve Jobs. Wozniak said without steve jobs,
he wouild have continued to just make thing in homebrew club, and not even
attempt to biuld a company. so just putting it out there. his advice is not
worth much at least in bussiness.

I hope they don’t do any of those things because they’re all good ideas and
would increase sales for Apple and I really don’t like Apple. They rip off
their customers SO FUCKING MUCH it really shows how dumb society’s become.

I have been dying for a touchscreen-based Macbook running OS X for years.
As much as I like iOS apps,there could be a way for OS X apps and the GUI
to be implemented just like Windows 8 and the upcoming 10 like you said. Of
course, would be wise to include a stylus when you’re using apps like
You know what Apple needs to introduce, a 6th gen IPOD TOUCH. Because not
everyone can afford an iPhone.

You want a full blown pro level mac mini for $999? Do you know how much the
parts required cost? You want to fit a desktop Fire Pro GPU and a Desktop 8
core Xeon into a mac mini? How would you dissipate the heat? How would you
sell it for $999? You couldn’t even build it yourself for $999.

Guy help me out should I get a mac setup or a pc set up

You make great points, Apple should look into a one OS system, I like the
Windows 8.1 experience, I have never had a problem with it, runs smooth no
lag, no crashes for me it is a great system. If Apple really want to win
over a lot of people then yes integrate not only Android but Windows as
February 6, 2015 at 8:56 pm
you ever try duet display for the ipad? gives an extended screen /touch
abilities for your mac , I have a chromecast and an Apple tv and I would
take the apple tv one the chromecast any day. If you want the ios kinda
look on your tv use airplay then turn on mirroring on your device then you
get touch controls so way better then a remote and still get the ios look
and function.. just some thoughts to get you basically what your asking for
here and now today.

I can’t wait for the new 17″ Retina MacBook Pro.
Oh wait. ;_;

I don’t think OS X needs touch capability. Windows needs it because it also
runs on tablets, but for a laptop/desktop, it’s a pointless gimmick. I also
think the Android iPhone will never happen. Too much profit comes from iOS,
and Android wouldn’t run as smoothly unless Apple made the hardware much
more powerful (i.e. spend more money on it).
Personally, I’d like to see some gaming-friendly Mac hardware from Apple.

Hey there. Really like your reviews, but I strongly disagree this time, –
especially on Macs having touch capabilities – for a simple reason:
ergonomics. I think it’s kind of awkward having to touch a laptop/desktop
computer screen. Besides, Apple has the best trackpad ever which allows
different ways of interacting with your screen and makes working at a
computer more comfortable. And I think that’s one of the reasons why Apple
hasn’t implemented touch capabilities in their computers. They’ve always
focused on making products which are comfortable to use. As for android
running on iPhones, not even worth commenting and I have mixed feelings
about the iMac with motion input, but I think it could be fun.

Apple should go to sports camera like GoPro…since Apple has the
ecosystem…imagine once the action is captured it will be automatically be
available in your other devices…and it will look good.

Amazing videos I enjoy them. I only found your channel like 5 minutes ago
and I already subscribed. Its awesome!!!
February 9, 2015 at 12:40 pm
All fine ideas but releasing an android phone is just too far “out there”!
February 9, 2015 at 2:19 pm
They should make the Mac mini the size of a sort of itx or matx tower with
upgrade ability of CPU, GPU RAM, DRIVES etc
