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...
I put the videos inside spoiler tags, does that make things smoother? There were only two on this page, Safari should be able to handle two. With mobile Safari getting extension support, there will likely be content blockers that auto-hide elements that you can then tap on if you want to see them.
Is the button above it called "Server" set to 'off'?
Yeah, customer service should be something along the lines of this (NSFW language):The main problem with these kind of stores is they work on reseller margins so they try and push their own accessories/warranties and they don't train staff very well. The sales people help shift the goods though and they let people get a hands-on experience without going all the way to an Apple Store which might be a bit far from them so kind of a necessary evil.
Even Republique would be classed more in the Indie category due to the size of the team and budget but it shows more of the style of console games. A higher production value game in the App Store would be Bioshock: [[SPOILER]] There's a breakdown of its original development here:http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/3774/postmortem_2k_boston2k_.php?print=1It aimed to start out with a small team like Republique but expanded to 3x the size and took 3 years. These kind of...
Real Racing is owned by EA now, which is a big publisher. EA makes a lot of money from mobile at ~$500m per year. This is 1/3 of their combined revenue for next-gen and 1/3 of combined for last-gen. EA has the resources to invest in high quality titles and they are one of the top mobile publishers. Unfortunately, they are not representative of the vast majority of mobile games. Racing games are also easier to make look nice because a car doesn't move very much relative to...
