This is silly it serves the same functions as the other iPads. This is like asking what function does the 13" Mac Book Air serve when you have the 11" model.Where is the mass market for the 13" Mac Book Air, the Touch or any of a number of Apple products. It is all about consumer preference. Beyond that we don't know exactly what sort of display this machine actually has, if Apple put a 4K screen in the machine it would automatically have handle on a different...
Most likely true. I could see Apple changing up the feature set though.By this time I would have fully expected Apple to research, prototype and maybe even piloted hundreds of iPhone designs. They have as much as said so in that each release may have seen ten or more prototypes. This doesn't even count what hasn't been released. So unless we have inside information we can't say for sure if iPhone Mini was ever a product idea, or even if it made it to prototype...
it has been well known for years that Samsung has been researching UI's to replace the parts that seem to infringe on Apples patents. Why anybody is surprised by this remains a mystery.As for claiming first, maybe that is their goal or maybe it is just a matter of CES happening. The only real claims that are worthwhile are those that involve shipping product. Considering it will be many months before a 64 bit processor ships in this device it won't be much...
everything Samsung has done lately has been a response to Apple, how you could see otherwise is beyond me.No you don't design it in a month but do you really think that Samsung doesn't have a handle on what Apple is doing.Samsung has been working on a new UI well before this was a known product. The goal was to remove any patent related issues with the old design. So no they don't design a UI in a month, but the reality is they have been at it for years.The two are...
I believe you are wrong on both counts.A 12" iPad Pro would be a big hit if priced right. An iWatch would be a huge mistake in my mind.Why will the iWatch be a problem? I just don't see the attraction of wearing such a device if it can't completely replace the cell phone in your pocket. Looking at what is available technology wise I don't see that happening anytime soon. It might sell as a high end piece of jewelry in limited quantities but i really doubt they will...
Exactly! This would make sense for things like ITunes Radio, especially if they already are running ads on the system. If I have to listen to ads then why am I paying for the bandwidth to do that. This is even more rational for iOS devices.However I can see this clogging up AT&Ts networks. No matter how good you are you can't beat the physics of radio technology.
The real fantasy here is people not realizing that iOS will evolve along with the hardware. The two go together as Apple is very limited by the process technology used in each machines SoC. Just because RAM, flash or the CPU may seem limited for some users those features will evolve or improve in the future.As for multitasking it doesn't work that bad now. Yeah there are severe system constraints but it isn't impossible to get work done by switch back and forth in...
Isn't amazing how narrow a view some have of the world? It is laughable that some use running FCP as the litmus test for a machine professional capability.
Unfortunately I think they will quickly hit their limits as to what is technically possible in the Air machines. The last possible step here is a passively cooled design where the case of the machine is also the heat sink. That would likely require sub 20 nm technology and a few compromises. In any event if they get much thinner structural issues become a big problem when creating a product with really thin parts. No one wants a machine made out of aluminum...
The point is the cost delta wouldn't be any different than what we see in the iPad. As an option that is, built in the basic configuration as a standard feature it would cost even less to implement.I don't understand why you have an issue with a company charging more for something people see as valuable. It is exactly what business is all about. If you have been following retina technology you would notice that it literally took Sharp years to deliver its current...
