Whoever made the chart probably didn't get enough sleep beforehand.
I wonder why they didn't just use Photos for managing and syncing the library and have Aperture become solely an editor that interfaces with this library of images. They can probably add a lot of the features back in with plug-ins but taking out the library parts of Aperture and pointing it at the Photos library would have been a quick way because there's quite a lot of features: http://www.apple.com/aperture/features/ It would give Photos users a quick upgrade path if...
Maybe that's why there are so few follow-up posts. This has happened to gaming addicts:http://rt.com/news/223615-taiwan-man-dead-internet/Their heart sometimes fails from exhaustion. Sports fans too:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/worldcup2014/article-2658967/Chinese-fan-dies-staying-late-watch-World-Cup.html"A Chinese fan has reportedly died after after staying up for too many nights in a row to watch the World Cup.Sleep deprivation from staying up to watch World Cup...
If the GPU is actually using up to 1.5GB like in the screenshot then it only leaves 2.5GB for everything else (older machines allocated much less for the GPU or used dedicated video memory), which can cause pageouts although memory compression helps out a bit and 4GB should really behave like 6GB. They haven't moved to DDR4 with Broadwell, which doubles the density. If it comes at the same price or close then they can probably jump to 8GB. They could even put in 6GB, they...
That wouldn't be possible for the spec. If you take a $99 Apple TV, add in a controller, more NAND, more RAM and a more expensive chip (Nvidia says the chip they use is 35x more powerful than the Apple TV), they can't still sell it for $99. It has to be around $199. NVidia has videos of some games:A few of them are running at 30fps. They look ok though. The Talos Principle running on Unreal 4 and Crysis 3 both use physically-based shading and you don't need to get much...
The price is quite high at $15/month for just one channel. NBC is reportedly considering offering one for $2.50-3.50/month: http://www.engadget.com/2015/03/03/nbc-comedy-streaming-service/ although they planned to split the channel into genres and that one is just comedy shows. It makes sense to price it high first and then lower the price as they build up subscribers but it will make uptake slow because people are already paying cable at the same time to avoid missing...
This makes sense for unsubsidized models - iPads are sold unsubsidized. For sales through carriers, it looks like they buy the phones from Apple outright and then lock a buyer into a contract to pay it back plus profit. Carriers couldn't possibly buy the phones outright and then offer them with a competitor's service.If Apple doesn't need upfront payments, they can get their cut from whatever carrier the user chooses.The contracts really shouldn't be necessary. Say that...
I think it's more likely that a Retina model would wait for Skylake, which doesn't come out until August. That's only 5 months away so they could wait but this would be a minor update. The CPU looks like it would be this one:http://ark.intel.com/products/84984/Intel-Core-i5-5250U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_70-GHzSmall CPU performance improvement (~5%):http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/1989890http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/1832021Graphics look like they...
There's a demo that gives some Watch home page interaction here:http://demoapplewatch.comIt looks cluttered but I can see advantages with the layout. On the iPhone for example, it would negate the need for reachability if it allowed to you to pull the icons down beyond the top edge:It allows easier rearranging of apps because you don't have to drag apps to the edge of the display and wait for it to swipe over. The grid can pan over very quickly and accelerate as you move...
Someone already managed to get the notifications to work: They claim it works without the phone being jailbroken but it is a jailbroken iPhone they're using. The Moto 360 isn't completely round but the Huawei one is: http://www.theverge.com/2015/3/3/8140837/huawei-watch-design-interview-mwc-2015 You can see they've ramped up security at 1:03, each watch is attached to a springy cord. Reasons to get an Android Wear watch would include that they'd be cheaper and look...
