It's a feature of the operating system, you can turn it off in system preferences by selecting the option to close windows:https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204005There might be another option in the Pages preferences but try the system one.
iMovie converts clips into editing formats, which are typically much larger than delivery formats as they encode frames individually rather than groups. To send files via email, you are better off using server storage services like DropBox:https://www.dropbox.com/en/You'd sign up for a free account and get 2GB of space. Then upload the 35MB movie to DropBox and share the link via email. This lets you send the same movie to multiple people with a single link and you aren't...
There are likely around 2 billion PCs in use but are not all used for gaming. Steam has 125 million active accounts so that's a closer estimate. If you look at EA, Ubisoft, Take-Two and Activision's 2015 financials:EA: PS4/XBO=$1.5b, PS3/360=$1.5b, Nintendo etc=$21m (this looks wrong but that's what's in their report), PC/browser=$878m, Mobile=$504m (EA owns popular mobile game franchises)Activision: PS4/XBO/WiiU=$720m, PS3/360/Wii=$1.4b, PC=$551m, Online=$876m (World of...
I don't understand why they aren't listed with Iris Pro graphics:http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Core-i7-6820HQ-Notebook-Processor.149416.0.htmlhttp://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-530.148358.0.htmlThe HD 530 GPU on the desktop isn't very good. They shouldn't have a 45W TDP with such slow graphics. Intel said 11% faster CPU, 16% faster graphics vs the previous generation for the H-series:I don't think anybody used the previous generation of the quad-i7 though....
The shows would be worth having but it's always the question of how much they're worth. They wouldn't be buying the existing shows nor the localised worldwide versions, it's just new shows with the 3 presenters under a new brand that people wouldn't recognize e.g The Car Show. Estimates on revenue for the whole Top Gear franchise are between £50-150m per year ($76-229m). I doubt a new franchise would make this kind of revenue in direct sales, especially considering the...
If the following is accurate, $250m is a bit much to be paying for the 3 ex-Top Gear staff:http://www.forbes.com/sites/ianmorris/2015/07/31/amazons-250-million-spend-on-top-gear-trio-is-actually-great-value/It says this was for just 12 episodes per year for 3 years. The finale of the last season only had 5.3m viewers:http://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/jun/29/top-gear-final-episode-viewers-bbcThey don't even get the brand so it won't be called Top Gear, nor can they use...
Not to mention a baldy who goes around with wigs on:http://gawker.com/5766189/john-travolta-goes-in-public-without-his-wig/It might be to do with a movie reference though. The ads had a hint of drug-fuelled hallucination:The role Travolta plays in the ad looks a bit like his character in Pulp Fiction but there could be another movie reference. I'm sure Apple said the Beats company would operate independently as a subsidiary of Apple. These ads could have been done by...
In the phone shops you can see the kind of things that happen with mixed brand stores. A lot of the sales people are your typical tech types, some of whom show up on the forum now and then who have the idea that Apple is overpriced crap and don't hesitate to tell anyone and they think people are just falling for Apple's marketing. They have no brand loyalty, which could be considered a positive but they have a negative bias towards Apple and it's usually only against Apple...
This is the route Amazon goes with a low-end $34 HDMI stick:http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GDQ0RMGand a $99 box with remote that has voice interaction:http://www.amazon.com/Fire-TV-streaming-media-player/dp/B00CX5P8FCbut the $40 controller is separate:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DU0ZI8QYou can see the ratings on each. The TV box without the controller has nearly 32,000 ratings and the controller has just over 1300. This box has only sold about 4.5m units so this would...
They need the Hydrogen to be solid state, not liquid or gas. Turning water into solid state Hydrogen wouldn't be possible just by applying electricity, nor would it be safe. This would be better not being done in the phone either but a separate standalone device like a coffee machine. Even then it needs separate chemicals to be bought:https://engineering.purdue.edu/H2Lab/Ammonia_Borane/index.htmlThat site has a video showing a vehicle running on the compound and the water...
