Apple nor companies in general make decisions, it's people who work at those companies - the board of directors or the CEO. They don't have the authority to take a company private when it's not their company.Imagine you founded a company, you have 100% shareholdings. You employ people and eventually make enough money to let someone else do the grunt work. You take your company public and sell say 1/4 of the shares to others to trade. You hire a CEO and you elect board...
There's a procedure here for doing this for Linux, it might work for Windows too:https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MacBookPro11,x#Getting_the_integrated_intel_card_to_work_on_11.2C3Apple locked down the EFI so you can't access it directly but there are custom bootloaders, check the note about Yosemite:http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/getting.htmlhttp://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/yosemite.htmlhttp://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/
Have you tried installing the Intel GPU drivers from here:https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=24245
You should be able to use OpenCL without it using the Intel GPU for graphics. You might need to install Intel's OpenCL SDK for it to show up as a compute device:https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-opencl
Who will make the decision? It would be down to the major shareholders, not the people running the company. When Dell went private, Michael Dell was a large shareholder but still had to get the backing of the other shareholders and only got 70% approval.Tim Cook has said that he likes that the ownership of Apple is broad. It could be far worse being private and solely owned by profit-driven institutions.
The power button should perhaps also be capacitive so that just touching it and letting go puts the display to sleep and pressing it puts the machine to sleep.
That's what I'm saying, people have limited freedom. You'll often hear people in Western societies say that we can say things in the West because we have freedom of speech when what they should say is we have freer or less restrictive speech, which isn't the same thing.You can say anything you want, except anything deemed overly hateful, libellous, defamatory, inciteful, racist, sexist or obscene. The exceptions in the last part negate the use of 'anything you want'.Some...
This should work ok:http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Mini-DisplayPort-Adapter-Cable/dp/B002XVYZ82They won't do a major update until they can ride the design out for a few years. They have to go all-in with Retina and the tech needs to catch up.As far as the adjustment goes, I would bet most of their sales aren't going to iMac users given that they have a built-in large display. I'd expect them to be to laptop, Mini and Mac Pro users for the most part (which combined make...
When the beliefs are shared in places like Africa or in schools, it's imposing that belief on others and when it has known destructive effects such as furthering the prevalence of AIDS or teen pregnancy then it's harmful:Surely the harm it causes contradicts the other parts of religious text that say to care for others. Some religious people believe that these harmful outcomes are delivered by God:http://christiananswers.net/q-eden/edn-f020.html"it seems more than...
The only distinction you make there is between people following up on what you say or not. With the amount of followup attacks that have been mounting in past instances, law enforcement is actually prosecuting people without there being actual...
