I really don't understand the upside of TB2 beside 4K displays. Today we have 2 lanes 10Gbps in Thunderbolt. TB2 combines the 2 lanes to one 20Gbps lane. So we will see no advantage exempt that we can use an Apple 4K display using TB2. Just because Apple are to lazy to put in a DP connector so that I can use the screen with any computer So Apple wants me to get 1) a new computer just to get TB2. 2) an Apple 4K display that only support TB2 3) I can't connect it to a PC...
Fun patent. It would be possible to have for example 12Mpix x3 setup for 36mpix camera. I doubt however that Apple will use 3 lenses. It would cost to much. (even if it just cost 1 dollar. Apple sells 120 million iphones per year. That is almost 300 million in extra cost)
Apple sells almost al its phones with carrier contracts. Some are subsidised some are not. The problem for Apple is that phone companies now have alternative to Apple. They can dump Apple and go for an all Android/Winphone lineup. The main reason for carriers to do that is to get control over the phone/homescreen and revenue sharing. All stuff that Apple won't give. If I understand things right carriers get a cut from every single Android app sold in the play store. Just...
Guess that Apple should have continued to use Solaris/Sun/Oracle like they did before iCloud. Using HP machines Azure will never work 100% (or 99.9995% that is acceptable downtime) or be secure. Apple should use their own Xserve/Unix servers. Not play around..... Guess its the same old problem: Old unpatched SSH SQL injection.
No 4K content? Hint: iTunes store. Every single movie on film is 4K. Every single movie that have been scanned for digital market since early 2000 is scanned in 4K. Delivery of 4K content is another thing. Most people don't have 100Mbit and even with H265 codec 4K movies will be 25-50 gig.
WIndows Vs Open is more Windows Vs Unix. The difference between Windows and Unix = Unix works, its scalable and have zero viruses/"server grade security". If closed was better, then Windows Phone should do much better, also Windows on ARM. Windows simply could not fit the GUI/Power requirement in a post PC world.
Quad core is not important. Power VR Rouge is important. And Apple should think about bumping memory to much higher then 1 gig since everything is going to be multitasked in iOS7.
I have had every single model of iPhone. The iPhone4 was the only phone I had replaced 3 times because of the home button. The double tap for multitasking switching killed the button. People actually use the phones!
Why are companies competing in doing higher then retina displays? The eyes cant see the difference. More pixels = more battery more GPU/CPU recourses. But this is typical nerd/PC era thinking. 441PPI is better then 330PPI. 2Meg >1Meg. WAP > SAP and so on. They forget that 99% of the consumers don't care. They want to know how its makes the device more useful to them. Still... Galaxy S4 is the only Android I would buy today.
From tapeout to production its at least 6 month! For example X86 at least 12 month. Even with risk wafers they would never get SoCs into production before October. (To many uneducated news reporters that talk about Intel, TSMC, Samsung and so on... Its not just to move production. A new tapeout is required for each manufacture redesign of the SoC to meet the specific manufactures rules. Apple need 50-70K wafer starts per month. People have to understand how much that...
