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...
The mockup is weakened because they took an existing iPhone screen and expanded it to fill a larger space. A realistic UI would have helped "sell" the idea.
Right, it's physically impossible to take more than 100% of an object or collection. In another context, however, it's perfectly acceptable to use percentages above 100%. For example Apple's stock price is up about 15000% since the mid 1990s.
That's actually debatable because "average" is a very poor mathematical construct for any set of data with only one firm boundary. Sell 99 cars for $25,000 then sell one Bugatti for $500,000. The average selling price for those 100 cars is $29,750 even though 99% of vehicles sold for less than the average. But yes Mercedes does sell cars that many people can afford.
Whoever measured that first photo made the big mistake of ignoring the fact that one was much closer to the camera than the other. Glad to see other photos of what appears to be the same part. I must say I'm not a fan. The large top/bottom bezel used by Apple makes the overall phone much taller than competing devices, even those with larger screen sizes like the Nexus 5. An iPhone with a 5.5" display would be truly enormous like that crazy-big Galaxy Mega with a 6.3" screen.
