An Apple Thunderbolt 5K Display? Don’t hold your breath

An Apple Thunderbolt 5K Display? Don’t hold your breath

First reaction among those setting eyes on Apple's new iMac with Retina 5K Display after it was announced yesterday was typically along the lines of "Wow": even Tim Cook couldn't resist the charms of the 14.7m pixel all-in-one, and he knew it was coming. The second, though, from a few laterally-thinkers in the crowd, was to ask whether the iMac would support Target Display mode, and thus turn into a standalone 5K monitor for a plugged-in MacBook Pro.

Delay of 12.9-inch iPad due to Common Sense

Earlier this year we first heard of the idea that Apple would create an iPad with a 12.9-inch display. That’s absurd, I thought - why on earth would Apple create a tablet larger than their smallest notebook? What possible reason would Apple have for making an iPad with a display larger than the standard iPad/iPad Air size they’ve got today? Surely they can’t be serious?
