If they give the community too much leverage, it will become a mess like Javascript as it goes form being elegant to "this isn't C++ enough, let's make it harder to use so no newbies will not want to use it" that has happened to Javascript, Perl, and PHPI prefer C, there's nothing terribly wrong with OBJC, or C++, but I find there is a lot of "OOP for the sake of OOP" and not OOP because it makes sense in many projects. This is why you see frameworks layered upon...
At 600-900$ a pop, I doubt it, but then again seeing all the 6-12 year olds in my family have an iPad made me wonder if they get more value out of having separate ones for each kid.I think the video is missing the point of a tablet, or any other entertainment device, in that you can only realistically watch one thing at a time, and that doesn't represent multitasking. The Microsoft ad using video chat and "let me show you something" is more representative of something you...
Hardware patents are "less evil" when it only covers uniqueness of a product, and doesn't prevent a standard from being established. Many of the reasons patents get a bad rap are regarding bad-faith patents (almost entirely dealing with software algorithms and not uniqueness.) For example, the LZW algorithm AFTER it had widespread use in the gif file format. There is no way to re-implement a mathematical algorithm without remaining compatible with other versions of it....
That's because Samsung is being reactive, and tends to never actually know which direction Apple is going when they are unable to peek at the parts in-house. Even then, they have no idea what to make of things. Apple recently switched to 64bit, but not quad-core CPU. Samsung went to quadcore but stayed 32bit... because Android isn't 64bit. If you casually look around news sites, Android is "moving to 64bit by christmas" . Know what that means? More fragmentation.If we use...
I use my Wii U for both Netflix and HTML5 development. It's HTML5 web browser is artificially limited, making it pretty darn hard to make javascript games work on it. (It's not as weak as the 3DS browser, but both are too weak that they tend to die when you run a javascript benchmark or various feature tests from Cocos2d/easelJS.)I don't watch Netflix on my windows computers because it's a nuisance to get the the streaming to work. I was previously using the Xbox 360 S...
Companies won't admit to wrong-doing if it's a third party. Especially if they are making money off of it. Premium Text Message fraud? Oh the customer was an idiot. Freemium in-app purchase fraud? Oh the customer was an idiot. You can also put "blame a kid" in there. One place I worked for, customers routinely pulled the "blame a kid" excuse because they or their kid put their cell phone number into one of those "text ##### to win a (item)" scams. I can't believe how...
I can still use my 2006 Macmini. I bought it when I had just moved to a new city and the laptop I was using was only 2 years old. The laptop now? recycled it 2 years ago as it no longer works at all.Sales/Marketing often don't consider that most people are still using what they have because they haven't been forced to replace it. Nearly all Windows XP devices are still usable, but they would be better off replacing them with new devices if they saw the energy savings...
This isn't correct. The OS needs to provide the accessibility features (eg Siri) when the device doesn't permit software to have enough space to operate. In the case of Siri and other text-to-speech software, it's insanely CPU intensive and memory/disk intensive to operate. We've had the ability for computers to do TTS since the original Mac and Amiga, but only in recent times have we seen this pushed to mobile devices, and out of necessity because blind people with no or...
No, Samsung just has no growth path.Eventually they run out of places to expand into, and without offering something better than the competitor, what did they expect? Apple is the innovator. Samsung is not. Google is not.Google was originally trying to copy the Blackberry, before the blackberry tanked because everyone was switching the much nicer better iPhone. So all existing Android devices are this ugly middle ground of crappy low/mid-tier device with crappy development...
No way. I'll take security over wireless convenience. This is a fundamental misunderstanding of how computers work. USB3 has 5gbits of bandwidth. PCIe Hard drives are being used on the Macbook, MacPro and iMac push around 8Gbits. 802.11ad is 6.75Gb, and that is an awful lot of extra radio circuity for something that is going to be less than 2 meters away.Point of reference, AP's bleed out and can be eavesdropped from more than 1km away. Even though their rated outdoor...
