I have a better reason:~Hey look at that awesome looking look, shame someone would see it to mean valuables inside.~Like, hey, I'm all for better home automation stuff, but this thing falls short on three frontsa) Someone watching someone use it would clearly identify that house/apartment or otherwise as having high tech valuablesb) It's battery operated, which means eventually the batteries die, and for that amount of energy waste, you are still better off carrying...
Two things:Different screen pixel density requires different assets. So to support both an iPad and an iPhone, and all it's versions you need 4 sets of assets ,one for every screen size. On Android this just gets impossibly unrealistic to do, so you instead pick the least common denominator between them. In most cases this means omitting "Retina" display versions and just pixel-doubling the assets, at the expense of the image fidelity.To give you an idea. If you program...
Here's what I think iPhone 6(s) or Pro = New A8 CPU/RAM configuration iPhone 6(c) or Mini = Previous A7 CPU/RAM configuration (5s) IPad Pro = New A8 CPU/RAM configuration iPad Air / Mini = Previous A7 CPU/RAM configuration Fits the naming scheme of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air Ultimately Apple shouldn't rebrand a product and not change the underlying specs, but there's already some brand confusion with just "iPad" due to the first three versions being called "iPad,...
Ugh no. Flash storage, you turn paging off entirely, because you don't want to burn out the NAND within a couple of hours. It's the same reason you don't defragment a drive that uses NAND. You just quickly burn out the 10,000 write cycles. When the write cycles end, the entire chip becomes unusable, unable to read or write.A far more likely scenario is that there is no need to keep things in RAM when they can just be read from the NAND flash again. In a desktop, you read...
Did you miss the part about "Upgradeable GPU" PCIe slot?https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/iMac+Intel+27-Inch+EMC+2639+Teardown/17828Even when Apple uses a desktop CPU part, they still use a Laptop GPU. Do you see how much space is just heatsink?There are literately three and a half tiers of computers that need to exist:1. Server/Workstation, which defining feature is ECC memory and replaceable PCIe parts and RAM2. Desktop, defining feature is that it can be replaced every 7...
No no no.What we need is a Mini, based on the highest-performing laptop chip, because the entire point of the Mini is for it to be quiet. I have two of them and I can only make the cooling in them engage by either running Prime95 or some of the various CPU-burning @HOME projects.The missing piece of the puzzle is that Apple doesn't have something between the Mini and the Mac Pro that isn't a iMac with a upgradable GPU.Literately, there is nothing that a PCIe graphics card...
Anyone remember "Unlimited Internet" when the @home network existed?Yeah... times a changing.See over time, the marketing for something good eventually backfires when it becomes too good due to grandfathering.Today we have either "umetered" or "capped" internet plans along with specific tiers of bandwidth which is easily imposed by technical constraints of the customer premises equipment. With wireless this is impractical, so instead the throttle at the connection level....
RIM (Blackberry) also isn't a state-sponsored company.China, because of some questionable quality control practices and corruption, often end up with counterfeit parts and malware on genuine products because they use readily pirated software in the process of putting the devices together. So Huawei and ZTE can claim innocence, but that doesn't mean it isn't happening under their noses.So the reason the Government doesn't want any Chinese parts in the internet/mobile...
Actually, if you've ever been to a buffet:1) Do not take more than you are going to eat, you will be charged for any uneaten food2) Get a new plate every time (do not bring plates back to the buffet table)If you go to all-you-can-eat where you are served , like a sushi place, it's usually a time-limited window of maybe 2 hours, and the portions are pretty tiny. Again you are also charged for any uneaten food.No doggybag/leftovers are allowed to be removed from the premises...
Apple pretty much doesn't go out of their way to make asinine changes to the product line. Ask anyone who has developed for Android what % of devices their software actually works on. Games made with Unity tend only to work on Android devices with PowerVR GPU cores, which are the same cores used on the iPhone. What does the Samsung device have?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapdragon_(system_on_chip)#Snapdragon_801 Adreno ,...
