This video gives a good view side by side:The iPad Air 1 is washed out but the Air 2 is much more vivid. Around 3 minutes in, it shows up more with imagery and games but even just the Facebook login screen, you can see a huge difference in the blue. If they'd done that with the iPad mini 3, that would have been a more compelling upgrade than just Touch id. Touch id is a good feature to pay extra for especially with ´ú┐Pay though so maybe they decided to split it into two...
This is just covering companies rebroadcasting preprogrammed streams for which they'll still need permission from the original content providers. DVR would effectively be repackaging content they don't own and it would be the same with per-show vs per-channel. A pre-programmed stream being rebroadcast means the source provider can ensure content goes out as intended with ads and they can probably determine audience engagement better.It's really up to the content providers...
The third word was stored in the cloud but it got stolen.Apple's system purposely doesn't store information so they will never be the security weak point. Banks are still a target and have been compromised:http://lifehacker.com/chase-bank-hacked-info-stolen-for-83-million-accounts-1642063956but these haven't resulted in account or card info leaking out. Once a 3rd party takes on the role of storing card info and shopping profiles, they are taking on a huge responsibility...
The Retina Macbook Pros had screen lamination from the start (they were introduced in 2012). You can see the difference with the glossy one here:The glossy one is not usable. The matte one spreads the light out more evenly but is duller overall. They can't add a matte-style to Retina displays because it would blur the image defeating the purpose of the extra sharpness. The iPad Air 2 still gets some glare:but it's at a level now that the displays are usable in bright...
I knew it sounded familiar. I don't like his new haircut.He needs to go see whoever Federighi's seeing.
I think Apple is taking most of them out of their lineup. The highest volume machines now have integrated graphics. I would guess that less than 10% of their shipping volume now has dedicated GPUs in them due to the higher price. Intel is starting to make big leaps with their IGPs and it wouldn't surprise me if they ditched all dGPUs in portables with Broadwell.AMD can't take the hit financially - they already make tens of millions in losses every quarter. They don't make...
You get wireless speakers that can connect to iOS devices over Bluetooth or Airplay, there's an Airplay one here:http://www.amazon.com/Portable-Wireless-SmartSpeaker-Apple-AirPlay/dp/B005LUUWFCAirplay has longer range than Bluetooth but may need both devices connected to wifi, I'm not sure if they've done a direct form of Airplay that doesn't need to use the network.You'd then just get a megaphone app:https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/megaphone-free/id304955183?mt=8The...
You say that as though it's the supplier forcing it on the buyer. The market moved without the supplier forcing the issue even before subscription took off in a big way - it says at the following site that Jimmy Iovine spent 3 years trying to convince Steve Jobs to take on streaming so that was at least as far back as 2008, just 1 year after the iPhone...
There are more complications when it comes to this issue than with race. There are jobs where sexuality plays a factor in a person's suitability for a job role. There are some cases where this is seen as true for race - white cops in majority black neighbourhoods, white teachers in majority black schools but this is of much lesser importance. There was a case where a lesbian was fired from being a soccer coach for female...
Actually this would be the opposite of the typical anti-European criticisms of anti-business, pro-consumer. This time it's the American company trying to impose something pro-consumer, anti-business onto European businesses. European businesses here are acting American in preferring to maintain a monopoly over the consumer by locking them into a contract.If all the hardware manufacturers did it, the telecoms people would have little choice but to support it. But it would...
