Apple’s silence on the Mac Pro (A Geeks insight)

Apple's silence on the Mac Pro (A Geeks insight) There seems to be so much negative chatter on the Mac forums about the lack of Mac Pro updates; of which I myself must say I agree with a lot of it. The mac Pro is over 3 years old having never been upgraded in any kind of substantial way, it seems obvious to anyone why power users are complaining and feeling ignored. The ‘Trash can’ design is such that it cannot truly be upgraded how a power users would like and as such dictates an Apple regular refresh; which they have not done. Being a power user myself I am totally frustrated with the lack of a useful Mac Pro to help me push the boundaries of my own work and I feel like I’m now being stifled by my investment in Apple and their lack of interest in keeping the Mac Pro at the cutting edge. There is a genuine argument i

It’s time for the Mac Pro to take the lead again.

I love everything I own by Apple and that’s almost everything. I’m running a MacBook Pro late 2013 15″ i7 Retina 16gb ram 1TB SSD (top of the range when released) it matches my top spec iMac on my desk they are pretty much the same machine in different form factors and both would compete with the basic mac pro (dustbin) quad core and that’s the problem. There was a time when the tower was always way ahead of the laptop. The fact Apple can make such a small Laptop and iMac compare with the basic Mac pro workstation is an achievement but we are at the limits now on MacBook’s and iMacs and the Mac Pro could easily surpass those limits and that’s the issue that’s making me and many other Apple geeks angry. Apple allowed me to have power of the basic Mac Pro in a mobile laptop (I’m thankful) it feels like that was t

Karma always catches up in the end.

It’s been a long time coming but at last the originator of the now iconic touchscreen Apple iPhone is seeing its hard work justified in an easy to understand way. I’m not talking about the billions owed by Samsung to Apple and proven in court for Samsung constantly ripping off Apple  iPhones (Samsung continue to evade that debt using the courts of appeals). No this is much more karma based as we witness the iPhone copycats by made by Samsung explode and catch fire due to poor design and badly though out everything. For those non Apple users who think there is fair competition between android phones and Apple they have to step back and remember that before Apples iPhone there wasn’t anything like a iPhone on the market and after iPhone everyone just ripped off everything Apple had worked hard to create including its look

The real problem with Apple Music and the Dubset Deal.

It seems that everyone wants a share of the pie from musicians and in the race to get their cut the biggest issues have again been forgotten by all including Apple. Apple can now play unofficial remixes of music originally created an artist but made in a new way by a third party. Dj’s love to make mixes and sometimes remix tracks but they are not always supported by the artist who is the creator of the original. The artist should have the right to ok illegal creations that might have a global access. ok if a bedroom DJ wants to do something and share it with his mates then so be it in that small world but this new deal with a company called Dubset claims it can work out which songs are original works and thus allow Apple to play them because they can work out who to pay what from the music. On the face of it this might soun

I love me who do you Love ?

So today I posted an reply to someone who was moaning that their live Facebook feed was not posted on Facebook due to a copyright infringement on one track he played It suddenly dawned on me as I typed my reply, of the many possible variants to this persons complaint and I’m not saying my final paragraph is true but it does flag up the possibility of the depth of egos in DJ's and their true dis-respect for the music and the real creators who are the true people that need recognition. Here is my reply he basically say in his post  “fu*king Facebook didn’t upload my live mixing set I made for all the peeps out there and it was live and over an hour set” Here was my reply which evolved in real time as I wrote it …Please think about what I’m saying and you might see that the only loser every time is artist rather than

The dreams and unresolved issues of Mark Ruff Ryder’s 6 new iTunes LP Albums….

I’m gonna share a dream I had last night but I’m also going to analyse it because I can do that as long as I can remember the dream. Here is a layman explanation of how your mind works and why we dream. If you want to skip it scroll straight to The Dream (title) Why we dream The brain uses dreams to make sense of the experiences, thoughts fears, worries and bits of random information it collects over the day as well as the deeper un resolved issues that are spinning around in the back of your subconscious but all have yet to resolve before you go to sleep. A dream is your brain (which is just a super super computer) trying to clear its cache(temporary memory) by sorting out all these un resolved issue which it does by collecting it all up and making a story ‘Dream’ it needs to do this to clear them from is temporary memory

Everyone should know this about Mark Ruff Ryder!

The absolute truth about me and the reality of most people although they might not want to agree with me? or maybe this is uniqually me .. Who am I... Mark Ryder AKA Mark Ruff Ryder? I'm actually just a knob head and a bit of an idiot sometimes , not in the uneducated way because I am very educated in reality, which is why I can say the things I say, but I’m not educated in a PHD or some convoluted anal degree in making paper cups. I have been very successful making music but I always keep out of the hype and bullsh*t and the fakery of it all. I'm a humanist and a realist, totally true to reality which in my case gives me depression, as living in the really real world of true knowledge about what life is really about is depressing. I’m surviving and I’m very unique in that I know what I’m doing most of the time. I

Over 14 years of planning & creating..

I have blogged this so many times over the last 14 years and here I am again, almost ready. I have only really told a few close friends about this massive project because its so vast people can not comprehend it. Sometimes in life you are all alone on a mission to do something you feel is unique and also very important to your own creativeness. This lonely life is all inside my massive project, as the albums unfold I am confident that people will realise the huge mountains i have climbed to create this. So its now 2016 and I'm almost ready. Again! but its not hot air, I really have been working for the last 14 years on this massive project and it really is nearly so polished that I'm happy to say, I love it enough to let the first few parts of it out in the wild. Apple seems to be upto a few things also with there mammoth shif

My Social Media Life..What you need to know

I respect everyone views online especially those who disagree with me because discussion creates education for both parties involved. I can be contradictory and I am willing to change my view on many issues.   I appreciate you all wanting to connect with me and I'm sure after reading my blogs you can see I'm a very troubled person. I see the world very clearly and it scares me. I have friends of all faiths and orientation and as people; I love and respect them all.   Minds can never fully connect with each other but music always does and music is where I am talented;  rather than in my communications and views which are direct, to the point. I'm not one to beat around a subject I'm passionate about although i hold my tongue all the time if it's not important to me.   My way of direct expressi
