There in lies the problem which has been an issue in all Apple rev one devices. The first instance is often a proof of concept with sometimes the second and third revs being similarly proving the point. This was certainly the case with iPhone as it really didn't come into its own until about iPhone 4.That being said I have to wonder if the iWatch delay is due to waiting for Samsungs 14 nm process that is supposedly going live in early 2015. If so that would be an...
It is interesting to research watches in the context of railroads. Before the railroads there wasn't a huge need for individuals to keep accurate time. The pocket watch along with "Railroad time" was instrumental in allowing for the successful expansion of the railroads and thus the country. During that time a watch was as much a technological innovation as the iPhone.
That is irrational, the guy is a BS artist at the very least. He certainly is skilled at exploiting the gullible.Not even close. In fact some of his comments don't even reflect reality. Trying to trash NVidias K1 is just one example. Honestly it is the first decent tablet chip from NVidia. Is it perfect no but no chip is.Im not sure I'd use the word entertaining here. Frankly when he does have facts to use he twists the facts around such that no reasonable person...
Have you ever stopped to think that maybe there is more than one valid metric to judge a processor by. Blindly cheerleading isn't something that leads to respect and acceptance of ones opinion.In any event I don't know about those instance of down playing Apples processors. In this context I know that DED's article is laced with plenty of bull crap. Unfortunately far to many lap it up with out a bit of critical thinking. With an article like this part of that...
Yes for some that is the case. However that up is a rapidly shrinking portion of the population. Further iPad clearly demonstrates a very large market of customers that don't care.
DED is basically a BS artist. That people fall for his non sense is really sad.Well this is actually debatable. It really comes down to real world usage and I've seen mixed results there. Also power usage is a factor here but even here it isn't clear which chip has the upper hand.Actually the A8X and that extra bit of RAM might finally get me to upgrade my iPad 3. The A7 certainly wouldn't have caused me to upgrade.Hmm, I'm not sure about this one, it is very hard...
I'm not sure how you come to that conclusion. The basic design of the A8(X) is sound. As suggested if freed from its thermal constraints there is much potential here. Many ARM cores these days are running well beyond 2GHZ when built upon suitable processes.I'm glad you have confidence but he will have to overcome AMDs recent history. They have promised a lot at times and delivered little. That being said their HSA architecture is certainly shaping up, even if this...
Software compatibility with the Windows world is largely over blown these days. Think about it, how many iPad users run around demanding Windows compatibility?Now for me Imwould need i86 support at work. However at home there has been zero need for that.Don't underestimate how many Macs got sold because of that i86 compatibility back then. Obviously it isn't the big deal it was ten years ago but some people simply would not be able to justify a Mac without that...
The only thing I can say here is that AMD has been full of promises in the past. I'd really love to see them back in the game though. That might just happen as the leadership there does have a strong technical background now. Given that I still advocate AMD for the better GPUs they could bring to Apple devices especially products like the Mini.I'd laugh my ass off if the Global Foundries, Samsung and AMD line up managed to bring those chips to market on 14 nm. Even...
The only questions I have about TB was these: 1. Who's initiative was it? 2. Did Apple and Intel cross license the technology?Answer those two questions and we might get an idea if we will ever see a TB port in an iOS device.Intel at one time kinda hinted at the idea that they might not object to compatible hardware. I've yet to see anything materialize so maybe that was wishful thinking. The other thing here is that TB is evolving rapidly, there might be a...
