    Yep! Mine's also less than a year old and I've upgraded the ram. Do you have any idea what a 15.4" MBP (Early 2011 model) with 8GB of ram? I've got no idea what I should try and sell it for but it's in perfect condition and I still have the box and all the original cords
    Check ebay completed listings

    Inbuilt Siri and native facebook support on iPad, fucking yes.

    However cellular 3G/4G facetime sucks for Australians because of our crummy data usage when we're on the go, hopefully there is an option to disable that.

    I fucking hate the pricing of apple products, I'd love one of the new MBP's for college/uni but 1400 and then all of the extras even with a student discount is just extortionate. Want an extra 8GB of ram? Fork over 160. Want to use ethernet? 25. DVI adapter? 25. Spare power pack? 65. It's ridiculous.

    You can get the ram upgrade much cheaper through crucial or another similar company, I also got a Thunderbolt->HDMI adapter for $2 on buy.com thats worked amazingly well.

    Anyone, not just develepors can download the iOS 6 beta through iTunes 10.6.3

    Edit: Nevermind, just iTunes 10.6.3 is available to non-developers not iOS 6.

    despite popular belief, thunderbolt is a non-proprietary i/o connector.

    you can buy those ethernet/dvi adapters for far less than what apple wants

    I'm a little concerned about upgrading a jailbroken iPad to iOS6, I've done it with my iPod 2nd generation when iOS4 came out and it was a jailbroken iOS3 and nothing happened but has anything changed in terms of jailbreak updating?

    Don't do it, apple changed the DRM so now you need to have the device be registered on a Apple Dev account (the one that costs $100) otherwise you won't get past the login screen. I did this when iOS5 beta came out and I ended up having to wipe my iPad just to get it to work again.

    No you can't, it's soldered on now.

    I honestly have no problem with everything being soldered onto the board. It starts off with 8gb, the max that any previous MBP could take, as much as most higher-end desktops have. If you really REALLY need the extra 8gb, you can upgrade to 16gb, but the price is a bit ridiculous. I'll probably get the base model, as the only reason I ever went above the base model with a Mac was for more graphics power. The only thing I'm not happy about is you can't get more storage on the base model, which will make it a right pain in the ass to dual-boot. I can't justify the $600 for an extra 256gb and 300mhz.

    I have a hacked version on my iPhone 4 and the single-core A4 can handle it pretty well, so there's no reason for it to not be on the iPad 2

    I guess I am now, been slowly learning how to code for iOS for over the last few months and today I said fuck it and bought the full blow dev kit. Now I just need a conformation email and I will be on my way.

    Does anyone know if its ok for me to post pics of iOS6 or will that break Apple's NDA?

    So is anyone else remotely excited by Passbook? It seems like the precursor to iWallet to me, and I suppose there isn't any reason why they couldn't make iWallet a part of Passbook for the iPhone 5 launch.

    Why would you be? It's just an app that consolidates vouchers - you've already been able to do everything that you can do with passbook.

    If you think about it, an Apple version of the NFC wallet (although you might call it "copying google") would be beneficial to everyone, as many more stores would be pressured into allowing NFC payment (due to the popularity of iPhones).

    It's funny how I'm getting even more irate at my current laptop after seeing the specs and stuff for the new MBP's.
    Though that may simply be because Acer makes the worst piece of shit laptops ever.

    If there are any screenshots you'd like to see of the new iOS from an iPhone (despite the fact the changes are hilariously few and far between) let me know and i'll post some up.

    Stumbled across someone trying to sell what appears to be a mid 2010 Mac Pro, 3.33 ghz 6-core, 32 gb RAM, 8 tb of storage, 2 superdrives, hd5770 gpu for 900 euros.

    No way in hell that's all fine and dandy.

    Considering how, as we Dutch call it, 'rotsvast' Apple stuff tends be, even second-hand, I'm having doubts.
    If I wasn't looking for something more portable, I'd consider it.

    Still, there's some nice shit to be found. There's a woman in my town apparently selling a 17" late/early 2011 MBP for 1000 euros. Again, I'd consider it but I don't think that thing fits in my laptop bag. Or what about the guy about 2 train stations away from me selling a current-gen 21.5" iMac for 850.

    Maybe I'm an idiot, but as someone who uses a Macbook Pro at uni, there is no way in hell you will ever need an ethernet port (at uni anyway). And why do you need a spare charger?

    so anyone actually a real dev
    I am. Downloaded the beta last night and after a day of use it seems (pretty) stable. Safari has crashed on me a few times, but apart from that all seems well.

    My thoughts so far:
    - The music app has been redesigned, it's sort of silver and metal-ly looking. One thing I don't like is that Apple have removed the cloud icon showing if songs/albums are downloaded when using iTunes Match. I'm hoping this is just a bug as it's really annoying to check if a set of songs is downloaded locally otherwise.
    - The redesign of the stores is pretty nice. The rows of icons are now taller which to me is pretty good evidence pointing towards a taller iPhone 5 later this year.
    - Passbook does absolutely nothing now. Launching it just shows a screen of what it does, but you can't use it. I assume that other Apps interface with it through Apple's 'Passkit' API which they announced yesterday.
    - Maps is a weird one. I'm assuming they haven't 'turned on' their 3D mapping stuff yet; I've tried New York, London and San Francisco and none of them have the little '3D' button come up. Also I can't see turn-by-turn directions, whenever I make a route it just has the exact same style of directions as the old maps: a top down view with little waypoints. I'm not sure if turn-by-turn is only available on the 4S (I have a 4) or if - like 3D maps - it just isn't in this release. Satellite images look nicer (imo).
    - Facebook integration with contacts is annoying, it just spammed my address book with all my Facebook friends so I turned it off. Other Facebook integration is pretty cool.
    - They've refreshed the colour of some little things here and there, like the title bar in settings. It's a bit bluer and looks worse in my opinion.

    That's all I can think of to be honest. It doesn't seem like a very big update but once maps work properly (if they do on a 4) then it'll be quite cool.

    EDIT:
    Just seen AnandTech's article and it looks like they have 3D Maps working on their 4S. So I guess that that's evidence for no 3D maps (and quite possibly no turn-by-turn) on iPhones < 4S.

    Mostly because it appears to be a precursor to iWallet and it's bringing the iPhone one step closer to replacing everything that I carry in my pocket. And it's possible they could through in iWallet for the iPhone 5 launch.

    Edited:

    If you think about it, an Apple version of the NFC wallet (although you might call it "copying google") would be beneficial to everyone, as many more stores would be pressured into allowing NFC payment (due to the popularity of iPhones).
    If Apple does release iWallet it will most likely be using Bluetooth 4.0 instead of NFC.

    It looks like the new Status Bar in iOS 6 changes its color based on the color of the Navigation Bar.


    Almost for sure apple filed for a patent on this a few weeks ago.

    Also 3D maps still need a bit of work:


    Also none of these are my pics as I still don't have a registration email, dam it apple I paid you guys $100.

    EDIT: Ze email is here! Time to mess around with Siri!
