They wouldn't release a 5W mat that could only charge a single iPhone. The ideal route would be a wireless brick that looked like the following and worked at up to 1 meter although the receivers should be compatible with standard wireless chargers like mats:http://store.apple.com/us/product/MJ262LL/A/apple-29w-usb-c-power-adapterThese would come with portable Macs and desktop Macs could have transmitters but the low powered bricks can be purchased separately for people who...
They'd have to ban Nazi flags in the German App Store by law. Wolfenstein had to change all the logos in order to be allowed to be sold in Germany in any outlet:The end of the video makes the point that people don't have to worry about all of the obscene levels of violence being affected, brutal head explosions are in tact but the logos and references are switched, sometimes to Wolfenstein logos.I think the censored version there shows that it really doesn't matter if the...
There's a useful app here that scans the drive to find what storage is being used: http://diskwave.barthe.ph You can enable the hidden files in the preferences. Another app that might come in useful when cleaning up a drive is a duplicate file finder: http://www.hardcoded.net/dupeguru/ That one has a quick way of removing the biggest duplicates, you just list by size and use the arrow key to move down the list and hit space to mark the checkbox, then move selected to...
The Watch would be improved by working with the diet. If the phone had a 3D sensor, it would be able to tell what you are eating when combined with the color camera. If the sensor was accurate enough, it might even be able to detect how much salt has been added to a meal but you can tell it what was added and it can remember typical meals. The Watch and/or iPhone can track protein, fluid, sugar, salt/sodium, carbs, fats etc and then adjust the exercise according to what...
Yes, Apple gets how it should be done:http://www.freepatentsonline.com/20120303980.pdfhttp://www.techradar.com/news/world-of-tech/apple-files-patent-for-magnetic-wireless-charging-no-contact-required-1117194They described distances around 1 meter. The mat setup Intel demonstrated is fine too though and would let people charge in multiple locations and countries without taking the charger(s).A wireless charging block or mat that can charge a Macbook can charge an iPhone,...
The following roadmap suggests it'll be at least 2017 before E5-2600 v5 Skylake:http://www.theplatform.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/intel-kdm-roadmap-1.jpghttp://www.kitguru.net/components/cpu/anton-shilov/intels-28-core-xeon-skylake-cpus-to-support-6tb-of-dram-use-3467-pin-socket/I think they'll figure out a way to support Retina displays with Broadwell. They don't have much spare PCIe bandwidth but if they make a 21:9 5K TB display, that will work fine over the...
In this one he repeats the word a lot but also splits the word up:http://genius.com/Pharrell-williams-freedom-lyrics"Your first name is FreeLast name is DomYour first name is KingLast name is Dom"Dom is pronounced dumb i.e 'Your last name is dumb'. I'm guessing he wrote the lyrics, he seems to write a lot of songs:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Songs_written_by_Pharrell_WilliamsHe does adjust how he repeats the word 'freedom', he screams it the first 3 times in the...
Safari has its share of vulnerabilities too, quite a few allowing arbitrary code execution:https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/search-results?adv_search=true&cves=on&query=safari&cve_id=When you narrow it down to highly critical ones though, Flash is worse:https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/search-results?adv_search=true&cves=on&query=safari&cvss_sev_base=HIGH&cve_id=Just 3 very high ones for Safari in the last 3 years but pages and pages of them for the Flash...
It depends on how they are paid. It's unlikely that people would buy albums and a popular artist might have 1-3 popular songs per year so at most each person would pay $3 for the whole year to that one artist. With a $10/m subscription, they are pulling in $120 per year, which is enough to cover payments to 40 popular artists. Eddy Cue said iTunes has sold 35 billion songs with around 10 billion between...
They have under 35% gross margins on Macs so they can't cut the prices in half. Over their whole product range, they have net margins of around 25%. They have higher margins on the more expensive models but at most they can take off about 10-15% and this wouldn't expand marketshare enough to offset the loss in profit. PC competitors are working with single digit net margin, some as low as 2%. The only way they survive is on unit volume and cheap parts. If unit volume falls...
