And, I just read this, very timely.http://www.infoworld.com/article/2872529/computer-hardware/goodbye-keyboard-the-future-of-input-devices-is-almost-here.htmlI imagine you'd still be thinking for yourself, still be able to see beauty and ugliness. Still be able to fall in love.
Ah, you don't want me to start posting pictures now, do you?
You just never like believing anything positive about Apple.If I tell you that Apple contributed one of the most important features to Unix and therefore, Linux, you won't believe me either, so I'll leave you to look that up for yourself, since you refuse to do any research of your own, have fun!
No, you haven't read it. Read it again. Believe me, if I say it's in there, it's in there.
Feeding time? are you living in a zoo?Ok, I've mentioned this once or twice over the years. Over twenty years ago I had a thought about this which I wrote about, and have discussed a bit over the intervening years.Humans are very adaptable. We can take people out of the jungle, and mostly, they can adapt to modern life. That's one heck of a lurch. But sometimes we have philosophies, mostly theological in nature, that don't want new ideas as they see them as a threat, and...
As someone who has always built things, and who has woodworking, plastics, electronics and metal working and machine shops, I can say that having something on the bottom of the wrist is courting disaster. While it may work for some people, when you put your wrist down, which side ends up hitting the surface? If my watch was on the bottom, I would have destroyed it long ago. The bottom of my wrist is always banging up against something that's solid metal.I get the ease...
My thing is that I see no point to an OS X machine that wasn't 100% compatable with OS X apps. Other than not being able to run apps that would run poorly on a low end machine, there shouldn't be any restrictions. An advantage is that they could also make it iOS app compatable.I've never liked the "just a recompile" argument. While I haven't programmed for some time, I still remember enough to know that the recompile is just the beginning. I've never used Apple Xcode. But...
I posted this to someone else, but I'll post it again.http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/FaceTime#StandardsThis is just a basic bit of info really, but it's enough. Move down to where it says "standards" within that, there is the info.
I think he knows very well.The thing about his hiring is that he received $83 million. And they say that Cook is overpaid! Now, normally, when they bring in a turnaround specialist (and quite frankly, I don't believe that Chen really is one. He had good fortune once before, that's it), you give a good bonus, and a good salary, but the bulk of the compensation is stock.That keeps him, or her, honest. Work hard, and be successful, and your stock will be worth a lot more.But,...
I'm pretty sure that was tongue in cheek.
