They were talking about this on the news today and it was like, US and Canadian oil sources are in trouble if it crosses 50$/barrel, and the Saudi's could drop it down to 10$/barrel and still be making money. Iran and Russia need it in the 100's otherwise their economies are severely undermined. There's also thousands of jobs at stake if oil and gas projects (eg fracking) start being loss-leaders. How ironic, the Saudi's may solve global warmingclimate change by making all...
The Classic has been surpassed by the iPod Shuffle If they want to put a classic back out all they have to do is use the parts from the Shuffle with a SD card. As it is, SSD's are starting to near the point that they aren't cheaper than a mechanical drive but they're close enough that it doesn't justify making the 1.8" hard drives anymore. That's why Apple discontinued it. They can fill the rest of that space with more battery.
To put things in perspective, accurately, the limitation is likely a 32bit signed number, somewhere. If that's not the case, then it's Apple just trying to avoid a situation where updating an app (already happens with iOS itself) can't be updated because the amount of free space required is larger than the flash memory size altogether.For example the iPad, 16GB, I had to delete pretty much everything off it to update it to iOS8. That update required 5GB of free space.If...
It does, but not to the people that matter.If IDC, FT or BI, or any other investor clickbait site articles get read, they make money. If Investors subscribe, they make more money. Who cares if the information is useful, or relevant, it just sends their automated HFT computers into a frezny, good news or bad. Feed the HFT systems enough bad data and you see flash crashes.http://moneymorning.com/2014/12/01/why-aapl-stock-had-a-mini-flash-crash-today/Nobody knows "why" hmm?...
Make it with a "full" Wacom digitizer, and it will make all the other tablets including the Surface Pro 3 out there look like toys. It's not enough to just have a pressure sensative pen, it has to have tilt as well.Also Apple has a patent out there that involves using the camera for a pen digitizer, so who knows.
I know I like to make the "shipped to where? The landfill?" joke every time we talk about shipments, but I'm suspect that may end up being the case if they over-estimate again. Learn from Sony, Nintendo and Apple and low-ball production so that the demand is driven by eBay.
I wouldn't hold your breath. The iPad doesn't include the antenna, but most Square transactions are done with iPhones anyway. I've seen a few Android users, but they're the exception.Speculatively speaking, I think somewhere along the production of the iPad device they decided that the position of the NFC chip and the position of where people expect to use it doesn't line up, so they just disabled the NFC part of it. In the iPhone the chip is somewhere around the middle of...
A Patent troll is a company that doesn't produce what they own the patents on. The Rockstar Consortium is a "better idea" than say Apple buying the patents and then the other partners deciding to sue Apple because they want to change the licensing terms. Google should have joined when they had the chance because that would have lowered the costs for everyone on it.But hey, drop in the bucket.So by definition, Rockstar's purpose for existence was to mutually not sue the...
IMO, accessing your kids social network accounts is a bit much... what if they wanted to come out as gay, or their less-responsible friend likes to send teaser-sexting? There's a potential childporn charge just for looking at your kids friends wall/posts. Lojack their devices and vehicles for sure though.And to bring this back to the original topic, "think of the children" is why we have bad laws. Instead of trying to protect children like they are eggshells, we should be...
Ding Ding, we have a winner.DOJ brought this upon themselves. The message the DOJ is sending is that they rely on too-easy methods of reactive crime solving and not enough proactive crime prevention.Whatever happened to logging IMEI, MAC and ISMI numbers?
