IDG Contributor Network: Apple: Why a Mac user is switching to Windows

Apple’s recent attitude and behavior toward its Mac computers has not created confidence among Mac users. The Mac has more or less become a third wheel behind the iPhone and iPad, and the company’s heart has clearly not been in improving its Macs.The Mac Pro, for example, has not been updated since 2013. The Mac mini has also been languishing, and even the venerable iMac is in need of a hardware refresh.The end result of this is that Mac users have been left wondering if Apple even cares much about the Mac at this point, given how the iPhone is now the company’s big money maker.One writer at PCWorld has finally decided to dump his Mac and take the plunge into Windows PCs. He shared his thoughts in the first article of a series on why he is leaving the Mac behind.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Should Apple try to compete with Netflix and Amazon?

Netflix and Amazon have both done an amazing job creating original TV shows and movies that have attracted millions of subscribers. Apple, on the other hand, has lagged far behind and still has no offering available to compete with either company.But Tim Cook recently hinted that Apple is getting ready to enter the original video market: “In terms of original content, we have put our toe in the water doing some original content for Apple Music, and that will be rolling out through the year. We are learning from that, and we’ll go from there. The way that we participate in the changes that are going on in the media industry — that I fully expect to accelerate from the cable bundle beginning to break down — is:To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Apple’s Plus plan pays off

Features limited to the iPhone 7 Plus helped boost sales of the larger smartphone, but they were not the only reasons why a higher percentage of customers went big last year, analysts said. “The nature of the market is also shifting,” said Ben Bajarin of Creative Strategies, in a recent interview. As consumers encounter large-screen smartphones with more frequency — especially ones owned by friends — there’s a bandwagon effect, he explained. Although the shift to bigger screens has been strongest in China and other Asian markets, the iPhone 7 Plus accounted for a larger proportion of new iPhones sold in the U.S. as well, said Bajarin, citing his firm’s research.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Apple, bring back the MacBook Pro 17 and make your laptops great again

Apple is used to criticism from PC partisans, but with its first major redesign to the MacBook Pro line in years, it found itself unexpectedly taking fire from its own fan base. The new laptop was underpowered, Mac users complained, lacked ports that people actually use, had low-to-zero serviceability, and that “improved” butterfly keyboard still wasn’t that great.  The point that seems to uniformly burn pro users is the maximum amount of RAM: just 16GB of LPDD3/2133. The reason for the limit? Apple said it saves power, which lets them make the MacBook Pro thinner. I won’t pass judgment on that decision (though I think PC makers are also too concerned with thin sometimes), but I will say there’s a pretty easy way Apple could satisfy its unhappy performance-minded customers: Bring back the MacBook Pro 17.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
