The present age offers increasing threats to data and individual privacy. If Apple moves away from Intel on its Macs, future Macs can offer a much more secure enclave for users.
Apple’s leaked ARM Architecture for Mac plans seem exciting but chip transitions tend to hurt deeper more complex applications that are made of multiple software toolsets produced by developers supporting developers.
Softbank’s CEO and chairman offers up exciting and even scary picture of the future 30 years out—says ARM will ship trillions of chips in IoT devices and these chips will one day have the IQ of 10,000.
A future where Apple controls its microarchitecture for iOS completely and where it doesn’t for OS X raises questions. Additionally, Apple’s iCloud ambitions speak to interesting answers in hosted app solutions that can address the “pro” market.
In this Viewpoint feature Architosh editor-in-chief discusses the future of tablets in architectural practice, what technologies are doing behind the scenes to drive adoption and workflow transformation and just as importantly, offers a forward-looking perspective regarding the fusion of the power of analog tools that have not been usurped by the desktop but may be imitated in devices like the Apple iPad Pro with Pencil.
In this article the merits and liabilities of Apple migrating its Macs to ARM architectures are discussed, with references to current and past articles highlighting the many issues.
Will developers like Autodesk support Apple on ARM if they move their Mac platform? These and other issues need to be discussed in the latest rumor about Apple, OS X and ARM
Ironically Apple helped fund and establish ARM (Advanced RISC Machines) in the UK back at the time of the Apple Newton. Now with ARM based chips dominating both smartphones and tablet markets, it looks like Apple may once again move the entire industry to a new paradigm.
Apple’s A4 chip is possibly more interesting than the iPad itself. In this article we explain a bit why
A peak into some details on the new iPad
A Guardian article by Chris Edwards takes a good look at graphics processing units and how they are the ‘piranhas of computing’
Future PA Semi – based Apple MIDs may utilize virtualization to address multiple markets, including gaming
With virtualization heating up in the low-power chip market, Apple may use PowerPC architecture in future mobile Internet devices to attract the gaming market
Architosh’s report entitled, Architosh 2002 AEC CAD IT Survey Report, a publication of Britasmedia, discussed at length the use of low-power PowerPC chips for future Apple devices of unknown form
Daniel Eran Dilger’s article this week in Roughly Drafted Magazine suggest more than just the power of games on the iPhone. Clearly with such hardware internals the iPhone is more than capable of handling CAD — even, and especially, 3D CAD
A reader, Brendan Sheehan of Ireland, has written to Architosh about our recent article on the future of Apple in 2008. He too had an Mac touch computer notion and sent us the picture below
