That definition is crap. A patent is property you can own, purchase or sell. That property gives you the right to exclusive use of the property and that has been a reality for hundreds of years now. You really need to grasp why the patent system exists and how it's existence drives innovation. The patent system isn't perfect but it does far more good than harm.
Obviously you don't understand the patent system! Things aren't dramatically different than from the late 1700's or early 1800's. Patents protect the inventor and drive innovation. I only bring this up because I just left The Maker Faire at The Henry Ford. The Henry Ford has a priceless collection of steam engines including the oldest known to exist on the planet.Now you may be wondering what this collection of engines has to do with Apples patterns. Everything...
And sometimes they improve a product causing mass hysteria in the customer base.The big problem right now though is that they are pursuing the business or professional market on one hand while dropping others. The link up with IBM is an example here.On the other hand a lot of Apples software products spend too much time in stasis. This leads to professional disinterest. Aperture is just one example here. In fact Aperture should have been getting meaningful updates...
You would be an exceptional person not to have some of Macbeth in you.It is a little bit of everybody, each and every man lives with some guilt in his life, or at times feels trapped or manipulated. In fact I can't see how a man could live a normal life and not have a bit of Macbeth in him. Maybe a true sociopath could live with out acknowledging his short comings.In a way I don't think you understand the passage.Like the neocons had a lock on wanting to go into Iraq. ...
In the strictest sense no.Yes. R&D is not manufacturing. However it can get fuzzy, for example R&D could build a pilot line that eventually gets transferred to manufacturing!Research could also be for new phone designs? Think about the development of A8 and other chips here. Also think about the development of new case and screen technologies. Again you have R&D developing the initial production lines, often referred to as pilot line or Development hardware. ...
That is very hard to answer but inmthe case of Broadwell we are suppose to get 20% better or more GPU performance increase. If the CPU gets faster that will most likely be due to clock rate increases allowed by 14nm. SkyLake is more of mystery. Broadwell was focused on low power devices, SkyLake is new architectures to increase performance.By the way Intel might have something out with Broadwell/14nm this year. At this point it looks like it will be a tablet chip...
That does seem to be Apples attitude. I will go out on a limb and say yeah it is bad practice. Why? The uniqueness of Apples hardware means those with needs not meant have no choice but to leave the family altogether.
It is a beta with all the Apple supplied warnings, how difficult is that?I was being nice. I'm on vacation this week so I'm a bit more relaxed and was taking it easy. I don't have a high tolerance for stupidity.Your advice isn't needed and frankly if anything I went too easy on the guy.In the end I think Tallest and the others are right. The Apple community doesn't have the chops to handle a beta.
No!It is a beta by definition it isn't ready for a main machine. Further Apple specifically tells you it isn't to be used that way.If you can live with potential data loss then it might be useful to you. That and you are willing to file bug reports.This sort of questioning is why I agree 100% with Tallest first post. People just don't understand betas.
I actually sent Apple a bug report related to server issues with each iOS beta I've installed. The last time I spent more than an hour trying to get a downloaded beta to validate so it could install itself. Honestly they need to do better here.In fact it was a few days later when I filled the report because most of developer.Apple.com wasn't even available.I understand the strain of the mad rush but they really need to do better.
