Remains of the Day: Top of the pops
Even Microsoft has to admit Apple’s products are super popular, Cupertino may be looking to switch chip suppliers, and a Mac mini vid fix is tipped to happen soon. You like the remainders for Wednesday, November 28, 2012—you really like them!
Microsoft has announced Bing’s top search terms for 2012. I’m not shocked to see that the iPhone 5 and iPad are at the top of the list, but I have to admit I’m surprised enough people could remember the mouthful of the “Samsung Galaxy S III/Samsung Galaxy S3” to rank it third.
Rumors continue that Apple may be shifting its processor providers. A report says that Cupertino may change to 28nm chips built by the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacture Company (TSMC) sometime in 2013. Given Apple’s volume needs, that may create a challenge for other companies needing chips produced by TSMC, which we’re sure Apple is very, very concerned about.
Intel and Apple are aware of an issue plaguing Mac mini 2012 owners—including yours truly—that results in flickering video on monitors connected via HDMI. Thank god, because I was having a really hard time trying to see the Magic Eye image there.
