I found a website site, cameraimagesensor.com, that has some mobile phones listed with information about their sensors. The iPhone 5 sensor size is 1/3.2" with a sensor dimension of 4.54×3.42 mm. The Nokia Lumina 1020 with it's huge sensor of 2/3" and sensor size of 8.80×6.60 mm means it's 4X the size of the iPhone 5. With 38MP (effective pixels), it's actually a bit more than 4X the number of the iPhone's 8MP (effective pixels). This should mean the pixel size is at least...
Your mile analogy is ridiculous. 1GB is 1,000,000,000 to some people and 1,073,741,824 to others. That's a difference of only 73MB or ~7%; not a really big deal. This would mean the mile would be either 5280 feet or 5650 (difference of 370 feet), not the huge difference you use. When you're talking about a huge starting number, 1GB, worrying about an extra 73MB doesn't really matter to most people. When you talk about the amount of usable space on an iPhone compared to a...
Here we go again, stupid information from Kane. Was she there? Who gave her this information? How many times do we have to say alleged or rumored or something like this before we quit listening to supposed journalists trying to make money on stuff they said, someone said, while someone else was supposedly attending a supposed meeting.
You can export your Pages documents to Word if necessary and usually read a Word document in Pages but Word will never be able to read a Pages formatted document. Enterprise installations will always use what the entrenched IT manager demands people use so until these people finally retire or Microsoft implodes, Microsoft Office will unfortunately continue to be used. The good thing is I retired so I don't have to deal with that mess and gladly use Apple's products because...
 The funny thing about OEM stereos is that's the first thing most people change because in most cases they suck. Aftermarket head units have always been better than the garbage most manufacturers put into their cars.  Are you talking about the car's ECU (engine control unit) or the computer used in the better car navigation stereos? When I bought a 2013 Tacoma, I got the standard stereo instead of their navigation system. I believe the navigation system has a better...
All those "kids" with way too much money, that's who! 
When I look at the GPS navigation head units on Crutchfield, it appears CarPlay would replace a lot of the capabilities these units already have. Maybe the head-unit manufacturers don't feel the need to change what they already have. Most of the existing iPod integration is fairly simple to almost the same as an iPod but to do a CarPlay head unit properly, they'd have to make sure all their existing hardware actually performs correctly and that could mean a totally new...
Just because a reported Samsung official says they still are building the A8 doesn't mean they are or that TSMC isn't. Who do you believe, Samsung or TSMC? Everything related to the A8 has been rumors and until it's actually built, we won't know for sure and even then we might not know everything about who and where it's being manufactured.
Judge Koh will never change her mind making it nearly impossible to get any relief from her court. Everyone knows Samsung copied the iPhone and continues to copy changes Apple makes but finding that one piece of law to convince a partial judge has been illusive. Maybe they need to file the case in the eastern district of Texas. /s
I have yet to see information showing Android use all four cores or a quad core at the same time. OS X does this with many applications so I have no doubt iOS will be adjusted (if not already) to use more than two cores at the same time. Couple this with 64bit and I agree Android will be even further behind. The quad-core would be great for an iPad and possibly for a MBP Air if Apple sees any advantage in using an A8 over an Intel chip.
