you can say that again. In turkey, the entry level model starts at around 5500 turkish liras. With that money, you can buy two performance model laptops.

New MacBook Pro starts at $1,499, some models available today

hello again event
                      macbook pro prices

Apple just announced pricing and availability information for its shiny new MacBook Pro. Apparently it will come in 3 models, starting at $1,499, and you can order them all today. Shipping times are different, however, depending on which model you’re after.

The entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro is essentially a MacBook Air replacement. It shares the slimmer design and various internals with the new MacBook Pro, but it comes with physical Function keys instead of the Touch Bar, and doesn’t have Touch ID.

As aforementioned, this entry-level 13-inch model starts at $1,499, and you can see in the slide above, it starts shipping today. The next level up, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID, starts at $1,799, and it wills tart shipping in two-to-three weeks.

The top model MacBook Pro, which features a 15-inch display (and obviously includes Touch Bar andTouch ID) and a standalone Radeon Pro 450 graphics card, starts at $2,399 and also ships in 2-3 weeks. You can custom-configure this machine up into the $4K range.

So, will you be getting the new MacBook Pro? If so, which model?

Acoustic shooting

Walter Ramage
 

Hi Guys.  When I went back to college to train as a therapist one of the entertainments on offer was to join the acoustic shooting club.  I enjoyed it but eventually stopped because one I wasn't very good and second and mainly, I had so many case studies to take care of and course work to keep up with.  Some folk were able to keep up with the workload better than I and could spend time with the acoustic club regularly and get involved in international competitions.  For those who are unfamiliar with acoustic shooting it involves a regular hi quality, high precision air rifle and a laser that is identical to a telescopic sight mounted on top.  The targets are regular targets but the concentric circles are graduated in shades of grey going from dark on the outside to white as the bull's-eye.  The laser is zeroed in just like a normal telescopic site and as it acquires the target it has a low hum.  As it tracks in and crosses the various bands of grey and goes towards the bull's-eye the pitch increases until the white bull's-eye causes a very high pitch squeal.  The further away the target the more precise one must be in ones movements and to hold the bull's-eye you need a very steady hand.  We were for safety reasons shooting in an auditorium and the targets were placed around 100 feet away.  To assist the rifle was placed on a tripod for stability but more experienced shooters could free stand and also some could lie prone.  As I said, I wasn't very good but didn't have the time to develop any skill that might have been latent.  By the way, if you were shooting in competition and or with more than one person at a time and for accuracy then the shooter would wear a pair of headphones which were in stereo so you could tell when you acquired the target if you had to move left or right, or up or down.  The main reason for my post is to ask if anyone has their own acoustic rifle?  Back in 2004 they were quite expensive but I think the laser took up most of the cost but the rifles were not cheap by any means.  The rifles operated via a small canister of compressed air to avoid having to crank it each time you wanted to take a shot.  I would like to get my own rifle and maybe join a local club if I can find one close by.  And I just wondered if the advance in technology has brought the prices of the lasers down.  If you have any information, would you shareit please.  Walter.

Apple launches new ‘TV’ app

Christopher Hallsworth <challsworth2@...>
 

Apple launches new ‘TV’ app

hello again event TV app demo

Apple on Thursday kicked off its Hello Again event by announcing a new app it’s simply calling ‘TV.’ Tim Cook claimed that his team believes it will “completely change how you watch TV on your Apple TV as well as your iPhone and iPad.”

The app, as rumored, is essentially a super TV guide that surfaces shows and movies from all of your apps. “The new TV app is the first place I go when I use my Apple TV.” Selecting a title within the TV app kicks you into its respective app.

hello again event watch now TV app

When you install a new app on your Apple TV, it’ll instantly sign you in with your cable single-sign on, and it’ll populate Watch Now with content. Unfortunately it looks like the rumors were true that Netflix hasn’t agreed to be part of the program.

Fan of live sports? All you need to do is tell Siri to “turn on the game.” Siri knows which app has the game and takes you straight to the action. You can either request a specific game, like “the Cubs game,” or view a list all available streaming games.

To be honest, this looks awesome. Can’t wait to try it out when it becomes available in December.

“The Mac is more than a product to us. It’s a testament to everything we do and create at Apple,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook at today’s “Hello again” Mac keynote presentation as he unveiled long-expected updates to Mac notebooks. The new MacBook Pro has, as rumored, has an OLED touch bar replacing the row of function keys whose function changes from one app to another, called Touch Bar.

It comes in 13 and 15-inch flavors and Silver and Space Gray finishes, has 2x larger trackpad with ForceTouch haptic feedback, faster Intel chips and more.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro weighs in at three pounds, almost half a pound lighter than the previous generation. It’s also seventeen percent thinner and has 25 percent less volume than its predecessor.

The 15-incher weighs in at 4 pounds, is fourteen percent thinner and has twenty percent less volume.

It should also be said that this searching will look in a folder and it's
subfolders. Sometimes in large, nested folders, the search may take a while.
This is a great way to find a song in a large folder with many subfolders.

Also, after you hit windows E, you can use the control F keystroke, and it
will put you in that edit field.
Remember after you type in your search term, you need to press inter. You
then just down arrow through the list.
Once in the list, the context menu works well.
