Well, I don't seem to be getting much of anything on my iPad. I was using the beta. Then the beta for 9.1 came out, and I ran that. Then it went from saying beta to just 9.1. I went to software update, and it says my iPad is up to date. I'll check later. My phone, which wasn't ever on the beta, updated just fine.
There were times when you could have made a lot of money on their stock. I kept thinking of investing, but something kept bothering me about it, so I didn't. But the stock was cheap.I also keep thinking of investing in Liquidmetal. Their stock is literally pennies. The entire company is just worth about $49 million. Sheesh, I could get a substantial part of the company. I just keep wondering why Apple never bought it.
Taiwanese. Which is Chinese, sort of.
It's interesting, and unusual, that Apple would tie itself to a maker with such severe financial problems. Foxconn would remove that risk.
Anker is cheap, and get bad ratings from users. They break easily.
For several years, the smartphone makers propositioned Apple to allow them to use Apple's 30 pin connector. We know how that went. Then Samsung came up with their proprietary version.I would bet that if Apple licensed their lightning connector for use in other devices, not just those that connect to Apple's, and didn't charge for it, it would get adopted in a number of other devices. But it's not likely Apple would do that. They're not interested in making Lightning a...
Actually, while that doesn't make me happier, it isn't that bad either. Unlike a plug that needs to be inserted one way only, or, even two ways, and is entirely flat, this retains a rounded shape, and tip. That means that while it won't be as easy to insert, it won't be too much more difficult either. Take the plug, and roll it as you insert it, and it will right itself within no more than a half turn, and go in.
The only thing about this that others here have noticed as well, is how older plugs would be handled. Apple would need a dongle with a 3.5 or 2.5mm jack on one end, and this plug on the other. It would need to be a dongle, because a solid part would stick out too much, and would be subjected to too much leverage, and so would break easily. I do think that Apple, and others, are too obsessed with thinness. The phones this year are ever so slightly thicker. I see no problem...
Patents don't lead to higher product costs. They don't lead to any increase in costs. It would be depend on what Apple is intending to do with this, assuming they're intending to use it at all.Apple has co e up with more than a few new connectors, and has, in the last ten years and more, entered them to the standards committees, where they've been accepted. Apple then asked no money for third party implementation on other manufacturers devices. If they want this to become...
Every app that supports it. I've got Microsoft Word, Excell, PC Calc and others that show, even though I don't have them open.
