That's like asking why people don't drive SmartCars instead of Ford F350's. Different capacity and different purpose.ARM's purpose is low-power, which is why it's perfect for mobile and lousy for everything else but microservers. (Because you can fill a data center cage with 12 4U rack servers filled with 2160 of them (4 x 45) in the same power envelope as 8 Xeon CPU's per 45 ARM parts.)Until there is a dramatic shift in how programmers design programs to multithread...
I don't see anyone begging for larger devices, just cringing. There is a market for larger devices, but that's pretty much targeting fat-fingered Americans and elderly, not the people who will actually use it as a smart phone. Take a look at Japan and Korea, who wants to look like they are talking into a 1990's era sized cell phone. They like their tiny gadgets.Apple's best bet really is to figure out which two sizes actually sell, and axe the others. That might mean...
I'm actually surprised that nobody has tried to jump back on the DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) bandwagon and actually make better versions of this that also incorporate wii-balance-board type of technology) seems like something Apple could do with iTunes quite easily. Would probably sell well in Japan and Korea... not too sure about America.
Honestly the SD card thing is a misdirection. an iPad or iPhone would be better served with an SDcard if it was meant to be a companion device to a photo/video camera, or operate primarily as one. It isn't. So instead you get the must-be-faster-but-soldered-to-the-PCB solid state storage. Android Tablets/Phones are having trouble deciding if they are a computer or a toy. A toy is something you play with until you lose interest. I'd love to have a SDXC card support in an...
If that's the case, then that seems to explain the "region locking" by store pushed by Apple, Nintendo, Microsoft, Steam, etc is to force the taxes and royalties to be paid to the correct countries media monopoly and tax system. Think about it. If the taxes are the lowest in Ireland, everyone in the EU would buy from the Ireland iTunes store.I think what needs to happen, realistically, is that the "internet" needs to be treated as it's own country for the purposes of tax...
Most of the problem (eg 20+ minutes of updating) is not unique to the Playstation 3,4, Xbox360,XBone,Wii, WiiU, or 3DS.What makes a console viable is mean time before failure (MTBF) Microsoft did the console industry a lot of harm with the terrible build quality of the Xbox 360, I'm quite honestly surprised that anyone would buy the XBone in the first 3 years if at all. Sony doesn't have quite the record on hardware defects, however repeated (needless) firmware updates...
When I was at a Apple hiring thing a few years back, the Dr.Dre stuff was in their marketing. Apple wouldn't be selling it if it wasn't good for some reason. Personally I'm just mad that specifications aren't being put on headphone packaging/online anymore. Your average piece-o-crap headphones have 20-18,000hz range the better ones have 8-24,000, but I've only been able to find specs on the stuff put out by the Japanese companies (Sony, JVC, Panasonic) and none of the...
I think this misses the point that "any" headphones can be used with the iPhone/iPad/iPod. Barrel/Minijack connectors are designed to move and rotate. Lightning isn't. I'd advise Apple to take a look at the Nintendo GBA SP (The first clamshell design GBA) when they removed the headphone jack, only to put it back on all subsequent portable devices. What you had to do, to use headphones on the GBA SP was buy a third-party adapter that plugged into the charging port, so you...
Android is horrible, anyone reading this site is already aware of it being horrible. Any developer who hates Oracle/Java also hates Android. Android is just a gum-and-bailing-wire platform that only holds together as long as the hardware manufacturer cares, and Samsung pretty much follows the Car manufacturer's business model, release a new device every year, immediately stop selling the previous model with a fire sale (even if the new model just gets a new coat of paint)...
I'm not against this idea, but I really hate the idea of the entire wallet being "in the device", so that if the device is lost stolen or destroyed, everything on it is gone for good. The ironic thing about Cloud storage is that this is the perfect place to store the wallet provided that you have a way to unlock it when needed. Or you know, just don't be an idiot and never actually put more than 100$ in the "device-only" wallet.But as latter commentators mention, it is...
