What do you want to do?http://www.maximumpc.com/can_you_survive_chromebook_alone_2014
According to the AI article iPads, Chromebooks and in some cases Windows machines were all tested at the same time presumably for the same tasks by some of the schools. Administration, support, screen size, integrated keyboard, perception of it as a work device, along with less expense in both support and upfront costs have all been cited as pluses for the Chromebook. Others here are no doubt familiar with some of the advantages of an iPad over a Chromebook.
What can go wrong with a Chromebook other than total failure? It loads a fresh copy of the OS every time it's cold-booted, and generally impervious to viruses and malware (because it loads a fresh clean copy of the OS at boot). I suppose there might be occasional wi-fi connectivity issues but what mobile computer doesn't at least once in a great while? It doesn't get much simpler than a Chromebook.
Those are all Asian-based companies. If this a a pseudo trade-war between China and the US the companies you mentioned wouldn't fall under that umbrella.
So posting just to get a reaction then? Not that I believe you but if you're telling the truth there is a word for that: Trolling. Fits right in with hook, line and sinker too.
Avoiding treble damages in infringement cases?
Google is pretty much banned. Good enough?
This was not announced as a licensing agreement so I seriously doubt any money is changing hands. It's simply a truce on new and existing litigation outside of the US. After the current appeals run their course here I expect a similar agreement for the US too.It's been a mishmash of wins and losses so far and seemingly without end. There's also been harm done to the favorable reputation of both companies IMHO, tho Samsung got the worst of it. It may be that neither company...
That's roughly correct according to what I've read. Somewhere between 80 and 90% of Google and Apple app stores revenues flow from in-app purchases and primarily in games. Do a search over at AppAnnie for more detailed info.
While waiting for official word from Apple on how sapphire might be used in upcoming Apple products here's a video that shows real life tests of what might be expected for durability if Apple chooses to use it on the iPhone. It's the first one I've personally come across that we know for certain really does test a sapphire smartphone display in an actual shipping phone (tho maybe Vertu has one somewhere). It does hold up pretty darn well.
