A minor refresh looks like they're waiting on Skylake for the Retina, possibly fanless redesign. Broadwell can't support external Retina displays. Having non-Retina Broadwell models would mark a line between both 2015 models as it would be Retina MBA in late 2015.They did this with the Pro models though - brought the new Retina ones in at a much higher price while keeping the old ones around. I expect a $100-200 premium over the existing models for the Retina ones.
If you look at HP, they made $34b revenue in 2014 from personal computers with a marketshare of about 27%, which is about 85 million units. This makes the average selling price of their computers $400."Net revenue for consumer clients remained flat as growth in consumer notebooks, partly driven by our new product lineup including Chromebooks and hybrid products, was offset by a decline in consumer desktops"Dell has similar marketshare and earnings.When you consider GPUs,...
They needed improvements to Objective-C. Perhaps they could have just made an Objective-C 3.0 with automatic memory handling and remove parts that lead to common errors and make headers optional. It looks like interactive code is possible with Objective-C:http://www.merowing.info/2014/10/playgrounds-for-objective-c/Microsoft's C# came out in 2002 but didn't add a lot of features until years later:http://csharpindepth.com/articles/chapter1/versions.aspxThe Swift beta didn't...
All the Retina machines have soldered RAM so get the most you expect to use when you buy it.
Freedom of speech comes into it because certain protocol packets can be throttled. The people behind MegaUpload and Bittorrent want to make P2P chat software to allow you to exchange messages without being spied on. If ISPs block or throttle those packets then they are suppressing your ability to say what you want without fear of retribution.The more likely factor affected is free competition. Comcast owns part of Hulu. It's in their best interests to ensure that Hulu...
Maybe he doesn't like the notion that all packets are treated equally:"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all network packets are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Connection, Transfer and the pursuit of Acknowledgement."Then you get packets coming into your domain where they don't belong, stealing bandwidth from other packets, demanding unearned privileges. Nothing comes for free and we...
Hypochondriacs are going to love it. It might be beneficial to everyone around hypochondriacs too because the Watch can let them know there's nothing wrong with them. I wonder if Siri will snap though, she'll get fed up with them asking what's wrong with them.I can see it now:Watch: do you feel thirsty? Y/NUser: YWatch: Go get a drinkDehydration is something people don't keep track of enough so if it can sample hydration level and give a warning, that would be useful. Same...
Like a quad-i7 with Iris Pro for under $1500:http://store.apple.com/us/product/FE293LL/A/refurbished-154-inch-macbook-pro-20ghz-quad-core-intel-i7-with-retina-displayThe old mini with the quad-i7 was $799, an Iris Pro one would have been about $849 but they have different plans for it so you have to just go with what they offer.
The non-beta release hasn't even been out for 5 months. They have to go through the phase of letting people use it in their varied projects. They'll get crash reports for tools and fix them. There have been performance problems noted in some areas e.g:http://stackoverflow.com/questions/24162475/is-swift-really-slow-at-dealing-with-numbersbut there are ways around some of the problems:https://twitter.com/Catfish_Man/status/473752917347139584For apps that are relying on...
I changed it to the right name now.The iPhone 6 Plus isn't good enough for someone that wants a full tablet experience but it has the advantage of mobile data coming with the device so no matter where you are, you can get the social media fix. The iPad mini is limited to a wifi environment if you don't pay for the additional data, although you can get easier tethering now. For prolonged reading, the iPhone screen is far too small:I don't think Apple promotes the book side...
