You can't play Amazon Video in Canada, so big freaking whoop More on-topic though, Amazon doesn't have >50% of the VOD market share, nobody does. If Netflix works just fine, Amazon is just lying through their teeth. You can't say the h.264 or h.265 codec in use by Netflix is any different than the same codec used by Amazon. And if they're using a different codec... well... there would be no hardware acceleration, even on their own products. Qualcom doesn't mention anything...
I don't think Google is ever going to move any mountains because they haven't innovated on much of anything since the Google search engine. Everything else has been copycat with a twist. And when they couldn't create a copy that people want, they bought out the competitor (see Google Video -> Youtube)And Google Fi is nothing new. It's in a sense a MVNO, which any company can set up. You eliminate roaming by arranging roaming agreements, or being MVNO's with everyone, and...
Well counterfeit iPhones don't work with the Apple Store. They still have counterfeit App stores via jailbroken devices.
Maybe on the MacPro/MacMini it's 20%. I don't see the iMac or Laptops being that low entirely because if you buy all the parts separately (OEM) it still requires assembly, and the store you buy OEM parts from still has their own markup.
Elsewhere it's been indicated that the samsung chip is in the 6S and the TSMC is in the 6S Plus.There's not going to be enough of a difference. For the sake of argument I'm running geekbench's battery-life benchmark with all the radios on to see what the battery life ends up being on the 6S 128GB, but I'm willing to bet that nobody who actually uses the phone would notice which chip would be used.
It's very hard to get people to understand why "mobile" CPU's are not supposed to be in "desktop" systems. The point of a mobile CPU is to save power at all costs. A desktop CPU is the reverse, where it's to maximum performance while not burning a hole in the motherboard. Desktop CPU's are between 65watts and 130 watts, and if Intel had it's way back with the Pentium 4 and RAMBUS nonsense, your desktop would consume a full 12A to do what it does currently. The Prescott...
I actually find the iPad 3's iOS 9 performance to be rather... uh...let's just say that every time I open safari I have to wait like 30 seconds after hitting the first soft-keyboard key for something to happen.
Another video out there says iPhone 6 is 30lbs and the iPhone 6S is 80lbs of stress for bending the frame. Given that's the 6/6S and not the Plus models.I imagine that if the case is as inflexible as it is, that might mean that the only real way to break the screen is dropping it face-down... and then stomping on it. But I'm not going to be testing that.
I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be impressed by that given that the "bendgate" before was someone who intentionally weakened the phone just to bend it. In this case it takes two grown adults putting substantial pressure. What I would like to see is how much of it survives intact by the Blendtec "Will it Blend", and how much force applied to the screen is required to damage the screen.
It's not as simple as you think. Given this is Apple and not Google, where Google would be a giant cluster****.Many apps with the changes of screen sizes can only target the smallest device screen. For example if you run an iPhone app on an iPad, you get an iPhone sized screen.But it still works.Some software (eg Unity) does the App thinning itself for the iOS devices, but doesn't distinguish between different sizes. Android? Not going to happen.Fun fact: Mosty unity apps...
