Interessant. Apple gibt angeblich “hundreds of millions of dollars” aus um ca. 100 Spiele in ihre “Apple Arcade” Subscription zu bekommen. Insgesamt sollen es über $500 Mio. sein.

Apples gives a maximum of 16 GB of memory for a 27-ich, mid-2011 iMac. The screenshot below proves them otherwise:

The iMac works fine with 32 GB of memory. I finally have a little bit of leeway to use VMware Fusion properly. Maybe Yosemite will even finally run smoothly now.

Unfortunately I need to work with Windows from time to time. I am depending on some tools that are only available for that OS and a Virtual Machine is not always handy. So when Microsoft made the Windows 8 Pro upgrade offer back in January, I decided to finally upgrade my Windows XP and use Boot Camp and bring Windows 8 to my mid-2009 Macbook Pro. It was not that easy…
