MacBook Pro (Early 2011): three great breakthrough and a little bit about the lion

In 2011, the birthday of Steve jobs (February 24), no conferences or fanfare, Apple has radically updated the MacBook Pro lineup and released a beta version of OS X “Lion” (DP) for developers. About “three breakthrough MacBook Pro” was reported on the Apple website, but… most Likely, the birthday of Steve no relation to the massive update had. As for the release of OS X “Lion” for developers. It was a coincidence.

But the silence in which it all happened, thought-provoking. Apple called itself “a mobile company number 1 in the world”, officially recognizing the Mac and peripheral, although very important area of its activities. One-third of income, unprecedented growth in the number of users is serious.

Laptops (everything from plastic Unibody MacBook to a MacBook Pro) was included in the category “mobile devices”, the size of income brought in they were in first place (20.7% of income), outpacing all other mobile devices “in the individual standings”.

And to remind the world about OS X “Lion”, to tell about the early success of the Mac App Store, letting everyone know that Apple (and Steve) all right…

Three big breakthrough

In the original these breakthroughs was called differently – “Three big leaps”, three large bounce or jump, but I prefer to translate this slogan in meaning. The slogan was memorable, but from the site it disappeared after a few days, supplanted by the new.

And what kind of breakthroughs? Choose three to taste:

— processor architecture Sandy Bridge (32 nm), all new MacBook Pro;
— the return of integrated graphics from Intel(Intel HD Graphics 3000);
— the transition from Mini DisplayPort to Thunderbolt;
— MacBook Pro 4-core processors (once all 15 – inch and 17-inch);
— renamed the iSight camera FaceTime HD Camera (720p);
— 13-inch MacBook Pro in multiple tests surpassed the Mac Pro;

and others.

However, don’t get too serious about marketing slogans.

Sandy Bridge (32 nm) and HD Graphics 3000

Intel new generation, of course with better performance and new ways to squeeze out of a tiny chip a little more, paying for the acceleration of less energy. Though the economy has not been particularly strong point of Sandy Bridge.

The product of evolution with sed (with sed 2.0) took up a large part of the processor and dynamically respond to changing load and temperature. Turning on and off processor cores and changing the clock frequency it affects the performance.

Instead of a single clock frequency in Turbo mode now had several. The number depended on the number of cores. 2-nuclear – highs for one or two cores, 4-core for one, two and four.

And the GPU is now located directly on the chip, and in many respects superior to the NVIDIA GeForce 320M. As expected of integrated graphics Intel HD Graphics 3000 shared memory, taking for their needs at least 384 MB (if the size of the total memory was less than 8 Gigabytes), or from 512 and above.

That’s not all: Intel HD Graphics 3000 used also cache third level, this has not happened.

I’ve already talked about the reasons that caused Apple to use outdated chipsets on Intel Core 2 Duo. Intel has banned NVIDIA to develop chipsets using processors with DMI technology (the CPU is newer than Intel Core 2 Duo), and integrated graphics from Intel was not good enough for Apple. It is a fact, from his words I do not refuse.

But there was another circumstance, about which I forgot to mention. It is possible that it played a role, but I don’t think this role was significant. Intel Core 2 Duo Apple had fantastic deals. Processors next generation she bought on the same terms as everyone else.

Apple’s greed is well known, but one should not exaggerate it.

In late 2010 Steve met with the leaders of Intel, what they talked about is unknown (from Intel was the Intel Atom processor for mobile devices and subnotebooks, whom she wanted to interest Apple – but it is a guess, nothing more), but most of all “friendship” was restored, and Apple is able to buy Sandy Bridge for a very special price.

OS X Lion (10.7) Developer Preview

About the release of the first beta Mac OS 10.7 Apple developer told “the Telegraph”: in a press release. The text of the press release, with comments (often even quite appropriate, and not devoid of sense) to other reported media.

A beta version was available only to registered Mac developers ovsky, thereby which in October 2010 was 600 thousand and the number of which increased by 30 thousand each month.

By registering with the Mac Developer Program, the developer definitely confirmed the acceptance of Apple’s privacy policy. General nondisclosure agreement. To access the DP had to “tick” under another such agreement. In the media, no matter what, the information slipped – and for that, no one was punished.

The most severe punishment promised in the agreement, included:

— the immediate exclusion from the number of registered developers (termination of access to classified information);
— the requirement to remove from all computers and media development tools from Apple copies of books online, and something else, and provide a notarized proof of completion of this requirement;
— a ban on re-registration (either permanently or for a specified period).

As far as I know, cases of exclusion (at the time), but in full, this severe punishment did not befall anyone.

In the sequels talk about the 13-inch MacBook Pro Feb 2011 and 15 – inch and 17-inch.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
