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.
If you've ever installed an app on Android or Windows Phone you'll have seen the long list of permissions requested, many of them completely unrelated to the purpose of the app. That's just how it goes. They ask for the moon and hope you'll give it to them. I don't know what sort of hidden permissions apps get on WP, but on Android there are some things all apps have access to by default. You're not informed about them and there's no way to deny permission. Access to the...
I'm sure some people will complain if Apple makes only one iPhone model and it's bigger than the current one. The big question is whether they'll switch to a different platform if that happens. I think not because even the "mini" versions of Android phones are bigger than the current iPhone and they tend to be crippled from a specifications standpoint.
Branding is very important in the consumer marketplace. Apple and iTunes are successful in some demographics, but have failed to gain traction in others. With this acquisition Apple has confirmed that they're not happy segments of the American population avoid their brand.   Because of the importance of branding and image Apple must keep the Beats name and imaging as-is and resist the temptation to sneak a little Apple logo or "An Apple company" into the fine print. A...
I'm through with Samsung. Their attitude stinks. I suspect the only language they truly understand is the bottom line so I'm going to do everything I can to ensure that nobody in my family ever buys another Samsung product regardless of how good a deal it might be.
 I totally agree about the fashion branding of Beats. The people I see wearing them always seem to be wearing the latest "cool" clothing and accessories. When I saw "bass-heavy Beats headphones aren't a quality product built to the standard that they expect from Apple devices" I laughed because until the Mastered for iTunes initiative Apple never did anything to suggest they cared about sound quality in their tracks or hardware. Those ubiquitous white earbuds were never...
I remember being able to read the bottom row of an eye chart. My brother used to be able to read the tiny print at the bottom of the eye chart telling which company printed the chart, the copyright date, company address, etc.   Now my eyes cannot focus on anything inside of arm's length. That means I have to sit way back from my computer and use large font sizes. Mobile devices are special kind of hell for me. To use a smartphone I need to put on reading glasses, but...
