Seriously, have you EVER watched a developers conference? EVER? They always talk about sales, stores, production, etc. Always.Developers want very much to see how the ship is going. The better Apple is doing, the happier they are. So Apple always talks about how many people visited the stores the previous quarter, how sales are doing, how many app downloads there were, how much money Apple has paid out to developers, etc.
You apparently know nothing about the watch delays. It has nothing to do with her. If you want to blame someone, blame Williams, as he is in charge of the watch project, and is the COO.But it's not really all his fault either. One of two suppliers of the Taptic Engine failed to meets standards, and for a while, Apple was just getting 50% of the supply they needed. That's a good reason for delays.
Oh please! What are you talking about? Do you have any idea as to why they run the conference keynote? It's all marketing. It has little to do with the actual nuts and bolts of the conference. Most peop,e who stream it, and that millions of people, have nothing to do with developing anything, but rather, are customers, possible customers, financial and competitors.
Well, we have Phill Shiller on stage. What does he have to do with engineering? We've had the guy who used to run Apple stores, somehow, I forgot his name for the moment. I'm sure you remember him. He was on stage as well. So why shouldn't the person who not only runs the huge Apple Stores, but the Web site as well, on stage?You're saying that she has nothing to do with marketing, or the direction in which Apple retail is going? That would be strange, after all, if not for...
As he said, it was a typo, as I'm sure you realized. But, typo or not, the trend is clear. Android is moving down, and iOS is moving up. You can call something you aren't happy with rubbish, but that doesn't change the situation.
This is interesting. Possibly Apple now thinks that these will not directly compete with their watch. Perhaps they never thought that, but removed them for other reasons.
I can't speak to how "happy" the employees are. But some companies are turning on terminals one at a time, while others want to get the entire company running this at once. I can't argue that either way is better, because only they know their situation, and so only they can decide.I do think some people are getting their heads twisted around for nothing. When a new technology comes out, it takes time for things to settle down. I don't know how many people here remember,...
In order to do much of what Neil is talking about, Apple needs to move to OLED screens. The problem with what we have now is that the entire backlight needs to turn on, using a lot of power. While OLED's aren't more efficient than LCDs, the fact that only a few pixels need to be turned on, or kept on, dramatically changes that equation. Apple could have glances on all the time if only a few hundred pixels were turned on, rather than millions, and a backlight. We've been...
Micky is forgetting that this is already present on a larger Apple device; the touchpad of the new Macbook and Pro. So this is already on a much larger device.
So far, no OLEd screen offers any efficiency advantages over a good LCD screen. Maybe someday, but they keep promising it, and it never arrives.
