Nope, as we all repeatedly fail to learn, if it doesn't come in the box with the console, it will not be used or developed for. Microsoft is learning this the hard way, twice.What Apple needs to do, is either cross-licence an 'iPod 3DS' to get Nintendo's game library, which would effectively be a iPhone/iPod with the 3DS clamshell controls, or Nintendo needs to licence the iPod/iPhone/iOS and build their own. Nintendo and Apple are the only hardware innovators out there....
The jailbroken kind.Yet you omit this:
Better question is why isn't this considered a "pump and dump" scheme when a major stock holder wants the company to buy back it's stock (thus raising the stock price) only to flip it later and let it sink?
Or... simply not buying into the Android ecosystem in the first place.This is the primary reason I won't even look at the Android devices. That and three year contracts will still be in place here until December. In a two year window, I could reasonably expect a device to updated to the latest version, but three, fat chance. There are Android devices that are sold new and updates are discontinued immediately.My sister has gone through at least 3 mobile phones over the same...
It's my understanding that Chinese (and to some part, Korean, and Japanese) culture is to iterate, not innovate. More or less be a "better apprentice" and surpass the master. IP law (particularly patents) found in American and European prohibit being the "apprentice" in the first place. This is why China only allows foreigners to bid on their national projects if they're partnered with a domestic (apprentice) company and thus that company basically gets a free licence to...
Here's what I think, this is good and bad for different reasons. If you're hardcore married to the concept of multi-platform, write-once-behave-mediocre-on-everything paradigm, eg Electronic Arts, then this is just a bad thing. EA (more specifically, Maxis) uses SDL/OpenGL on the Mac. So something like this is unlikely to be used since it can't be ported to the PC or other game consoles (PS3/PS4/Wii) even if they have OpenGL. When Game developers write a game that...
Shipments does not mean sold. Physical items can be returned back to the manufacturer unsold. Unfortunately Analysts know this, but don't care.I doubt Apple borrowed anything from Android. If anything there are throwbacks to MacOS 6 and Windows 3.x
I think you miss the point of the Airport and Time Capsule devices.Both of these are connected by GigE/802.11-something, but on past devices you could connect a USB drive and turn the Airport into a Time Capsule.But mechanical hard drives (particularly the 5400RPM models used in external drives) are never really going to exceed USB2.0 specifications. Even when you plug in a SATA SSD, you're looking at a speed that is crippled but the weak processors used in these devices....
The reason we will never see a Linux version of anything is because Linux is a constantly moving target with hundreds of fragmentations. We see this "nothing new to see here" with Android fragmentation. If Adobe builds a Windows version of CS Suite, they know it will work on all current versions that Microsoft still offers support for. Likewise on Mac OS X. Linux there is no such thing. Most people don't have the patience to fiddle on Linux to make things work. This is why...
Funny enough, in a previous post I (and along with some others) predicted this kind of "mini pro" design with the multiple TB ports, and I also mentioned how this doesn't solve the GPU upgrade problem.But to be fair, GPU's haven't improved in the last 3 generations. A Radeon 4xxx, 5xxx, 6xxx, 7xxx and 8xxx part is barely any faster then the previous part it replaced. In fact going from a 5750 to a 7770 resulted in a slight downgrade. So it may be fair to say that the...
