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...
The schools get the products, not the students plus the majority of the students will be under 18 so marrying them would be tricky. Helping the poor is a good thing to do. They are too young to earn money themselves and they shouldn't be denied access to technology because of their parents otherwise it just puts them at a further disadvantage than they already have.
Broadwell's Iris Pro 6200 should top the 770M. The following site says Skylake will have a GT4 version that is 50% faster than Broadwell:http://www.cpu-world.com/news_2014/2014101501_More_details_on_Skylake_GT1_GT2_and_GT3_graphics.htmlSo 2015 Iris Pro should fall short of the 850M/950M but 2016 Iris Pro should surpass the 850M. NVidia will only have Pascal in 2016, which is 40% faster than Maxwell so Intel's IGPs and NVidia's GPUs could again have negligible performance...
The numbers should roughly follow the population (or rather the breakdown in the low income areas).USA = 63% white, 17% Hispanic, 14% Black, 5% Asian, The schools get the grants so the devices will be available to all the students at those chosen schools, the ethnicity breakdown is just the ratio that those schools have overall.
Plus it's not all that important, the OS and storage should be able to handle it. If OS X started rebooting after installing a certain number of apps or a certain number of files, the appropriate solution would be for Apple to fix it, not for users to change their setup. Apple still needs data to be able to address it so they need crash logs if any are being generated or something they can use to replicate the problem.
The 5K iMac one tested at the link was 1TB so I don't think the capacities are limited by brand.The performance difference shouldn't be noticeable in everyday use. If you copied say a 20GB file, the Sandisk would take 27 seconds vs 21 seconds on the Samsung. When it comes to small files, a 20GB folder of images would take 55 seconds on the Sandisk vs 45 seconds on the Samsung.I just noticed the footnote at barefeats says their iMac has a Samsung drive. They reckon the iMac...
Body temperature is 37C so 43C isn't hot and 57C isn't enough to melt circuits. You can read maximum temperatures acceptable by Intel are around 100C and at that point a chip would shut down:http://ark.intel.com/products/76087/Intel-Core-i7-4750HQ-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_20-GHzExternal temperatures of 90C aren't ok but 40-50C is ok.Try booting up holding down the shift-key when booting to put it into safe mode. It will take a longer time to boot. Check if you still get...
If it's the firmware slowing it down and not the hardware then an update could improve it. I suspect it'll be the hardware. In ifixit's teardown, the 5K iMac had the same Sandisk SSD that was in the 2013 MBP, which is slower:http://www.barefeats.com/rmbp14.htmlThe 2014 model uses Samsung and so does the Mac Pro. It may even be the case that some models use different brand SSDs so some 5K iMacs might get Samsung SSDs with higher performance.
