Why costly? As an add on it doesn't cost much in an iPad. Having LTE data support built in might even have me reconsider the next iPad update.
I'm one of those people that like the AIR as a concept but have been frustrated by its limitations.LTE! Seriously it is why my iPad is always with me now.I'd rather have a bigger display.Not going to happen. Besides the GPUs in Broadwell are supposedly seeing another big jump in performance.RAM and SSD space are what have kept me from buying an AIR. 8 GB of RAM minimum and we need an affordable 512GB SSD option.We could see an era of design stagnation with respect to...
Really good question to which I do not have an answer. Well not a good answer. In my view Siri currently has one ver serious limitation, that is the required trip to Apples servers which makes it useless for free standing systems. Frankly it severely impacts the use of Siri today on your cell phone.I strongly believe that for AI to work well it really has to become either part of the operating system or actually replace the operating system. Right now it looks like...
Big Handbrake fan here. The one reason why I need to think about getting a big file server.As for VLC it is one of those apps that you need to hate but at the same time have to have around just in case. By the way guys, yes the interface sucks but there are far worst bits of software out there.
Lets narrow that down a bit and say AI is the next step forward. AI that is built right not Apples devices and continues to evolve over time. Once you have credible AI much can fall into place afterward. Robotics is just one thing that AI enables. After all dumb robots have been working in industry for years, what is needed is the intelligence to set them free. Well that and a lot of research into mechanical and electrical systems.You look at the common R2D2...
So true but that is what makes this thread both interesting and in a way hopeless. Look at it this way whatever Apple comes out with next year will have been in development for years now. That includes both hardware and software.Many people on these forums have no idea what goes into the build of a new product or even a new feature in an existing product. One can not snap ones fingers and expect an instant solution. To do something ground breaking takes time and...
Maybe the lowest end model but better and best suck right now. You spend a lot of money to get very little in real world performance, no Haswell GPU and frankly the machine needs TB2 to better leverage the platform for some of the things it does well. Here I'm thinking server duty which one model supposedly supports.It really is a matter of perspective, Haswell does almost nothing for the CPU but that really isn't important to many of us. If Haswell was in a Mini...
I had a real great response typed up on my iPad and then Safari crashed. That happens a lot on AppleInsider for some reason. Hopefully Huddler and Apple are working this out as I've done well on most other sites with y iPad.In any event I will try to repeat things again as I'm at my Mac. My point with the Mini is that its value has been significantly impacted due to the lack of a Haswell solution in the machine. Not for the CPU improvements which are minor and at...
Err no, iPad hasn't revealed anything that wasn't already known. Many autistic people have exceptional intelligence and depending upon how they are impacted can be very functional people. Many mathematicians have what might be called a form of autism. Today the iPad has revealed something that is already known isn't helpful. It is good though that it is an alternative form of communications with these people.
That is highly debatable. For a good part of the year you don't really need cloths. For the times that you do any rag will do.Nothing logical about it, a person wears cloths because of the weather or societies norms. If you spend time dwellings on what you wear that is vanity coming through. Nothing logical at all about vanity.On the other hand choosing the proper computer takes much in the way of logical thinking.
