They're actually allowing more design-savvy developers to implement those designs by reducing technical clutter. It makes sense to promote languages which allow us to simplify higher level functions and provide lower-level performance as the Swift+Metal combo delivers.At the other developer conference Google admitted their platform's apps were running at half the speed they should have been!
Does anyone believe anything Google says anymore? What they should have asked is; as google have failed to transition web ad revenues to mobile & desktop clicks aren't yielding the same dollars, where do those increasing profits now come from?
When did Samsung get a good OS?
1). Possibly not though we were focussing on POS in this forum and here iBeacon has more to offer than NFC which is limited to "Near".2) Never said it did, never referred to BLE as iBeacon. Currently, iBeacon is built on BLE.iBeacon is just a software update for Android users...oh, I see your point.
I'm hoping iWatch is a continuity device; able to 'borrow' functions from an iPhone maybe via the Extensions framework (via a custom Extension format or hijacking the notification centre Extensions).
Now that would be something.
