Feature compatibility, or lack thereof, is only one of the problems with Excel for Mac. Lack of performance is also a huge issue for many users. Office for Mac barely crawls along. You can get far superior performance and fewer weird bugs running Office for Windows in VirtualBox (the slowest Windows on Mac solution). Windows still commands 90% of the PC market despite the missteps with Vista and Windows 8 and the overall movement from desktop to mobile. Apple choosing to...
ARM Mac - can't run Windows, but can run iOS x86 Mac - can run Windows, only developer tools can run iOS Given that iOS apps are designed for small touch screens, being able to run them on your Mac doesn't seem like a particularly important feature to me. If Apple ever decides it is they can create a consumer facing version of the iOS simulator. Intel chips have plenty of power to handle ARM emulation. The converse isn't true (yet if ever). Despite all the hype around...
I've seen missing menu bars in both Mountain Lion and Mavericks, but it's pretty rare and always related to external displays or having recently unplugged an external display. Some of the Yosemite problems (possibly yours included) are more easily reproduced and stand a better chance of being corrected. Like the sporadic, seemingly random wireless issues, performance has to be the biggest mystery of Yosemite. Some report that the OS performs fine, but others (ranging from...
And $350 is for the entry level sport model.Rumours say that Apple Watch will cost $1000 and may not even include a strap. You might have to fork over hundreds more to wear the Apple Watch. The gold Edition watches are virtually guaranteed to cost several thousand dollars without a strap. If you aren't in the market for a Rolex, you're probably not in the market for an Apple Watch.
I really appreciate all the math, but downscaling still feels like a compromise to me. My guess is they wanted a 1242x2208 display, but couldn't find anyone who could produce the required number at the required quality and required price point. I wouldn't be surprised if a selling point of the iPhone 6s Plus (or iPhone 7 Plus depending on how long it takes LCD manufacturers to meet Apple's requirements) is a full 3x retina 1242x2208 display.
Apple has something like 500 million iTunes customers and they added it to every single account. If even 10% of people have automatic downloads turned on then it was pushed to 50 million. I suspect the percentage with automatic downloads turned on is much higher. So the logical conclusion is that they're reporting 2 million people who don't have automatic downloads have chosen to download the album. Even that seems somewhat low to me given that it's free and the giveaway...
Looking at the MBP situation there was a clear reason why Apple continued to ship 2.0GHz and 2.3GHz machines instead of adopting the identically priced 2.1 and 2.4GHz parts: the top end was stuck at 2.6GHz. Without a new top end chip Apple didn't want to upgrade the bottom and middle machines. Intel then produced not only a 2.8GHz top end, but also replaced the 2.1 and 2.4 with faster 2.2 and 2.5GHz parts. When Apple could move the entire line up by 200MHz they...
Or a Chinese or Korean smart TV. Actually it's hard to use any electronics these days without someone tracking every step you take and every tap you make. I'm going to stick with my old fashioned dumb appliances, thermostats, etc.
Bigger SSDs are usually faster regardless of manufacturer.
Sadly Flash is still used in places where it needn't be like streaming World Cup games.   Having said that I have a serious question. Is there a competing technology for developing online games?   I'm thinking mostly of my children who visit sites like pbskids.org that use Flash for interactive content and games.
