Have taxes risen dramatically? If not then it's something else that's wrong. Income in the private sector has fallen for middle and lower earners but increased for the top earners. That's because the attitude of job creators is that a job is a privilege and can be valued at whatever they see fit, which is why those jobs are not competitive with public sector job salaries. I would agree with you that many public sector salaries are obscene and unjustified. This is visible...
The excuse is always that there's no evidence to say definitively. There are indicators from developers:http://www.cultofandroid.com/27547/android-piracy-outnumbers-ios-piracy-by-141-driving-devs-to-freemium-only-model/"Developers >Butterscotch Shenanigans recently released a game called Towelfight 2 on both iOS and Android. On both platforms, the game cost $0.99. On iOS, about 5% of all users pirated it, numbering about 2,438 copies. On Android though? 34,091 copies were...
Check which of the user data folders was updated most recently. If you pulled the folder back out of the trash, your emails will still be in that folder so you just need to put that back in place. You can hit command-i to get info on the folder's modification date.
Google does multi-platform solutions more because their business model is monetizing data. Apple makes its money from hardware sales. Offering services for competing hardware is mainly against their business model:"We argued with Steve a bunch [about putting iTunes on Windows], and he said no. Finally, Phil Schiller and I said 'we're going to do it.' And Steve said, '**** you guys, do whatever you want. You're responsible.' And he stormed out of the room." - Jon...
I think it would be nice if Apple offered an offline encrypted backup device for iOS. A 128GB SSD is under $100 and 64GB under $50. They could sell storage connected into the charging plug so when you charge the phone it backs up automatically every time without even thinking about it. If it had a spare USB port on the plug, this could be a small add-on - like a small USB pen. If it had enough storage, it could do multiple devices on the same storage. To migrate to a new...
Green means the message couldn't be sent via a data network and was sent as a standard text message. If cellular data and wifi are off on one device, it would go out as a text.
Between the iPhone and iPad, Apple makes over 200m devices per year. Say each processor is $50, that's $10b revenue. Even if it's not 100% of the volume, it's still a few billion. Samsung makes over $300b revenue per year so it won't affect them much.
The Spigen cases look quite nice:I think the one in the video is the following clear one, the Neo one has a solid back:http://www.amazon.com/SpigenĀ®-CUSHION-Crystal-Cushion-Technology/dp/B00JH88D1OIt looks slim enough but solves the camera lens protruding while not messing up the back design. It also helps hide the antenna bands.
It's always about the experience when it comes to mobile devices. Here someone says why they are ditching the Samsung S5 for HTC:Some of the comments reflect the same experience with lag. They seem to agree that the Nexus and HTC M8 give better experiences despite lacking in a few specs.When it comes to graphics performance, the iOS devices outperform every Android phone:http://gfxbench.comCPU-wise, the iPhone tops most Android devices...
Europe as a whole doesn't care much for people who come across as phoney. Bono's always wearing sunglasses, even indoors and he's 54 but dresses like he wants to hang out with teenage girls. Rich Hall explains the difference in acting phoney comparing America to Britain:Bono always comes across like he's trying to be a character instead of being genuine. There's not much tolerance for religion in Europe these days either:Then there's the charity side where he gives hardly...
