The new Spotlight is almost a step in that direction. When you think about it, a search box should be more integral to an OS and it should abstract a search engine because you might want to find a video on Vimeo, Youtube, metacafe but the search engine controls the ranking rather than each individual site. What a search box would do is that when you type in a search for a video, it would submit a search to the most popular video sites and choose the best results from each...
Lightning is still the thinnest port. USB-A and TB are 4.5mm tall, 3.5mm jack is obviously 3.5mm, USB-C is 2.5mm, Lightning is 1.7mm.A large part of the bulk in the Air is from the bulge at the bottom:It's mainly USB-A taking up the space in the middle part, TB isn't all that big - they can tighten it up but really get rid of the bulge at the base and make the display part a bit thinner.Removing TB would be more likely on an ARM device. Same deal with powering over USB C....
What would a 6th gen iPod Touch do that the 2012 5th gen doesn't do as a music player?Apple already bought a streaming service and a headphone manufacturer.http://recode.net/2014/05/28/tim-cook-explains-why-apple-is-buying-beats-qa/"So we’ve always loved music and believed in the power of it and believed that it could transcend language, culture and bring people together and produce emotions and deep feelings that other things can’t. And we’ve stood at the intersection of...
You don't have to have the same point of view to support the cause. The main point is that killing someone in response is not acceptable. Kind of like saying I don't agree with what you're saying but I'll defend your right to say it.Apple wouldn't publish the cartoons themselves just as they wouldn't publish pornography but they would defend the rights of others to fair judgement over the content, which would never result in the loss of life.We shouldn't be under any...
Headphones that you didn't buy from Apple. The potential lost users that want to use 3rd party headphones is small vs the potential upside of selling them new headphones and they sell iPhones that people can use with 3rd party headphones. Having people own Apple/Beats headphones is marketing in itself.They still sell around 14m iPods per year at an ASP of $160, which is now lower than the number of Macs they sell (~18m) at an ASP of $1200-1300 so there's some appeal left...
There's some kind of a market in audio for companies who have failed to sell smartphones (like Sony), they'll take what they can get. Apple is so busy selling smartphones, there's no point in giving attention to devices much fewer people are buying. I don't know what Sony is thinking bringing out an audio player at $1199:http://www.forbes.com/sites/ewanspence/2015/01/07/return-of-the-media-mp3-player/http://www.theverge.com/2015/1/5/7493145/new-sony-walkman-zx2-ces-2015The...
They aren't all published in the App Store, that's just registered developers, the above numbers are devs who'd be getting a cut of the revenue. There are only 1.2m apps so it could be the other 8m or so registered devs are just learning to code. There's some data here from 2012 showing a breakdown of how many apps developers are making:http://www.quora.com/How-many-developers-companies-have-submitted-an-app-to-the-iOS-App-Store-or-Android-MarketIt said 37% had a single...
It still appears to be a minority though, which presents a problem because a minority out of 1.6 billion is still a lot. It could be that 20% (320m people) have more extreme views and 80% (1.28b people) don't. How can you effectively separate one from the other? When a more extreme minority like that is more than the population of the US, it's a very difficult problem to deal with because the other 1.28b don't deserve to be treated the same way.Polls aren't quite factual...
I believe the Apple Watch is the new iPod and will play music wirelessly. Streaming would be a problem with it for now though because it has no networking except for being paired with the iPhone. It will have quite limited storage too. I'm sure I saw a Beats icon in one of the Watch demos or marketing images but I might be mistaken.iPods last year made $2.3b on 14m units, which is down nearly half since last year. iPhones outsell them somewhere like 20:1.I reckon they'll...
He wants a Macbook Pro at the price of a Macbook Air with the performance of a Mac Pro.
