What Makes Apple Different?

What Makes Apple Different?

I have a question for all of you that, for the life of me, I just can’t answer on my own: what makes Apple different?

Yes, I know it’s a question that’s been posed before, and some have said in the past that it was Steve Jobs or the company’s massive cash coffers. Others have said it’s a corporate culture. But I just don’t think any of those answers fully captures what truly makes Apple special and different.

Mac Pro rack servers make lego-like array with MacStadium

The folks at MacStadium have officially made public their intent to bring the 2013 edition of the Mac Pro into the server fold. This means you'll see arrays like what they've presented in the hero image of this article complete with the side-standing airflow they're implying might be best. The first setup suggested by the company here well before the Mac Pro's newest edition is made available is a 270 Mac Pro server rack.

Apple’s Mac Pro 2013 and the Form vs. Function War

Apple’s Mac Pro 2013 and the Form vs. Function War

We're about to see another of Apple's big experiments, and this time it's pro-users who are under the microscope. The test machine: the Mac Pro 2013. The question: just how important is upgrade-potential for so-called professional users, can fast external devices coax approval out of that audience, and will the offbeat design of the new high-end Mac convince us that power needn't be contained in a huge desktop?

Mac Pro 2013 USA assembly tipped for Fort Worth

Down in Texas this year, it would appear that more than just Motorola will be pushing a hero product through a Fort Worth production facility. Puzzle pieces were put together soon after it was announced that the 2013 iteration of the Mac Pro would be assembled in the United States - could it be that Tim Cook's chat with the US Senate let it be known where Apple would be putting this machine together? It's down in Flextronics' relatively new facilities with Alliance that we're looking at today.

Thank you, Apple. You’ve outdone yourself on the Mac Pro 2013

Thank you, Apple. You’ve outdone yourself on the Mac Pro 2013

I’m a complainer. I know it. My family knows it. And anyone who has read my repeated diatribes here on SlashGear knows it. I don’t like products that I feel could be better. And I can’t stand when companies seem to ignore the consumer’s plea for enhancements.

That’s precisely the way I felt everytime I even looked at the Mac Pro I’m writing this on now. I felt that Apple has ignored my pleas for a better desktop for years, and it seemed as if the company didn’t care. The Mac Pro was an afterthought, I believed, and there was not a single thing I could do about it.

SlashGear 101: Mac Pro 2013

Apple doesn't normally preview upcoming hardware, so when Tim Cook & Co. whipped out the new Mac Pro 2013 at WWDC 2013 this week you knew the company was particularly proud. Throwing away the old-style tower and completely rethinking not only the design, but the internal architecture, cooling, expansion, and ethos of a workstation, the Mac Pro 2013 will demand a new approach to computing from users, too, when it hits stores later this year. Read on as we break down what makes this Mac particularly special.

New Mac Pro 2013 eyes-on

Apple's new Mac Pro 2013 isn't due to hit shelves until later this year, but that hasn't stopped the desktop from getting a preview at WWDC 2013. Long overdue an update, the new Mac Pro hasn't held back, a significant departure from the aluminum tower of the current model, not to mention ramping up the specifications until this is the most powerful Mac to-date.
