Blaming Elop is blaming the wrong person. Large companies don't work that way. I can say with almost 100% assurance that Elop had little to do with the decision by Nokia to make Win Phone to the detriment of Symbian. Nokia had already made several large blunders. Ollie, the CEO at the time, was concerned that the smartphone industry had growth of 72% in a quarter, whereas their smartphone "only" grew by 36%. They were seeing the marketshare shrink. The first blunder was...
It's interesting on how the reporting of the purchase price of the Nokia phone division by Microsoft continues to rise in the writing of reporters long after it's been done, and we know the actual price. In reality, Microsoft paid about $4.9 billion for the Nokia phone division. They then also paid Nokia about $2.3 billion to license the relevant patents for ten years, non -exclusively. But reported prices keep ramping up. Now, Microsoft did write down about $7.6 billion...
I can't agree with that. Why the need for 2,250 extra large furnaces to produce the small covers for a watch? Makes no sense. No way that Apple would spend a total of over $750 million for watch sapphire cover production start-up.
Yes, Apple uses Gorilla Glass. It's getting tiring to have to repeat this.
It doesn't really matter. They have half of the game just knowing how to make watch cases, styling, and how to sell them. Technical expertise can always be bought. Apple does it all the time.The problem with what I've seen from Android Wear so far, is that the watches are coming from technology companies that have no idea of what the products they're making should look like.I'm just surprised that the watch they're showing doesn't have the look of a Fossil watch. I'm...
You need to read more carefully.I said that the reason TODAY is because it didn't have third party apps and 3G. That means that today, a phone wouldn't be considered to be a smartphone if it didn't at least have those features.I thought you would understand that, since I said today. I should have been clearer. I do t know why Jobs didn't like the term smartphone for the iPhone. He did say something about it being so much more than a phone, but I don'tt remember his exact...
The list I showed was for the USA.
It doesn't read like you do. There are differing controllers for racing games, air battle games, and so on. Wireless motion controllers work very well for many games. I'm not saying that the iphone, or iTouch is an ideal shape for this. But I'm doing it, and it works just fine for those games for which a 3D controller is designed. One major point to this is the cost of controllers. If you can use your phone, you MAY not need to buy a controller for a while, or not at all....
Where are you getting this information from? Games have been programmed for multiple cores for some time. This is like a discussion from time gone by.But 10 3 core SoCs? No way. Very little software uses more than four cores. And you wouldn't get 10 times the performance, you would get something like 7 times the performance.You're a,so talking as though the CPU doesn't matter. It does. Without the CPU being able to feed the GPU at the correct rate, the GPU sits doing...
No it doesn't. I really don't think you play many games. There are different kinds of controllers for different games. For the racing games, as I mentioned, it does make a fine controller now. In fact, the standard console controllers make terrible controllers for racing games. There are all kinds of controllers, some of those for racing cost hundreds of dollars. Do you need that? No, but people buy them.
