What's your next dream Mac? [Poll]

What's your next dream Mac?

The Mac is doing great these days, not only growing faster than the PC market as a whole, but growing where the PC market pretty much isn't. The craziest thing about that is this — Apple hasn't even introduced new consumer-level Macs for a while. Last year's new Mac Pro aside, all we've gotten lately is spec bumps on the existing favorites. Part of that is due to Intel's continued delays of the next-generation Broadwell chipset, but whatever the reasons it feels like the already successful Mac line could get even more successful when new models start to hit the stage. So, here's the question — which next-generation Mac are you most looking forward to?

The fabled Retina MacBook Pro, whether it's a beefed up MacBook Air or a slimmed down Mac Pro, seems to be hit hardest by the Broadwell delays. We keep hearing it's coming but it still hasn't arrived. It would have higher density than the current 13-inch MacBook Air, but likely at the expense of its tremendous battery life. It would be lighter than the current 13-inch MacBook Pro, but likely at the expense of its sheer power. Could it be the best balance of both worlds?

How much of your daily work can you get done on the iPad? [Poll]

How much of your daily work can you do on the iPad?

Apple's CEO, Tim Cook says he does 80% of his work on his iPad, and that means 80% of running one of the most valuable companies on earth. You've got to imagine that includes handling his mail, likely his calendar, and probably a lot of information reading, including a lot a numbers. How much of the rest is on his iPhone vs. his Mac is interesting to ponder, but the bottom like is he gets not only most of his daily work done on iPad. So the question is, how much can you?

When I'm out and about, I use an iPhone to quickly check in on, keep up to date with, and lightly edit my work. When I'm standing at my desk or sitting in a coffee shop on my MacBook Air, I'm doing bulk text entry, image editing, and other heavy duty operations.

What are you most excited about in iOS 8?

What are you most excited about in iOS 8?

We're now a full day removed from the torrent of information Apple threw at us at WWDC 2014 concerning iOS 8, and hopefully by now most folks will have had chance for most of it to sink in a little. There are so many different features to get excited about that it's probably hard to pick a favorite. But we're going to ask anyway. What are you most excited about in iOS 8? Does iCloud Drive give you the cloud storage solution you've been hankering for? How about the impressive new Messages features? Perhaps you're most keen on Continuity, the enhanced synchronicity between your iPhone, iPad and and Mac? Something else?

What did you think of the WWDC 2014 keynote?

What did you think of the WWDC 2014 keynote? [Poll]

With the 2-hour whirlwind that was the WWDC 2014 keynote now behind us, it's time to take a step back, take stock, and think a little about what we saw. The announcement of OS X 10.10 Yosemite, iOS 8, many new features across each platform and some shared between them. No doubt both will be big releases for both developers and consumers alike, but having seen it all unfold, what did you think of the keynote?

What are you looking forward to most from WWDC 2014?

What are you most looking forward to from WWDC 2014?

Today's the day. At 10 a.m. Pacific time, Tim Cook and other selected Apple executives will take to the stage at Moscone Center in San Francisco to kick off WWDC 2014 with the keynote presentation. For those of us who aren't developers, this is one of the most exciting parts. The part where we learn about what's new in iOS and OS X, maybe even get word on some new Mac hardware. So, what are you looking forward to, what do you want to see?

What should Apple do with the Beats headphone line? [Poll]

What should Apple do with the Beats headphone line? [Poll]

The Apple/Beats deal might be official now but a lot of questions remain. Will Apple keep the Beats brand? What roles will Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre play as Apple executives? Will Beats under Apple continue to produce stylish, high-priced, bass-intesive, headphones? It's that last one I'm curious about right now... What should Apple do with Beats headphones?

Should they keep the headsets as-is, Beats-branded and bass-heavy? Should the consolidate them under the Apple-branded EarPods line? Should they toss out everything and make a new line of great, accurate-sounded headsets for the next generation? (With super bass-boost button if needed?). Or should Apple just get out of the headset business entirely and focus on devices and services?

Apple TV v Chromecast v Roku v Fire TV: Which would you choose?

Apple TV v Chromecast v Roku v Fire TV. Which would you choose?

We're lucky to be blessed with so many good options when it comes to streaming online media. The space recently got a little more crowded with Amazon introducing its first effort, the Fire TV. And, while we're naturally fans of the Apple TV in these parts, the fact we're spoiled for choice is nothing but good. More choice also means that we're more likely to find one that meets our own specific needs. So which would you choose? And why?

Do you want to see Gaming on the next Apple TV?

Amazon dropped a bomb this week with the introduction of its Fire TV set-top box and included gaming capabilities. It's a similar yet different product to our own Apple TV, but it does give us plenty to look at when thinking about what we'd like to see next from Apple. So, would you like to see integrated gaming included on the next version of the Apple TV?
