I think it's more likely that a Retina model would wait for Skylake, which doesn't come out until August. That's only 5 months away so they could wait but this would be a minor update. The CPU looks like it would be this one:http://ark.intel.com/products/84984/Intel-Core-i5-5250U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_70-GHzSmall CPU performance improvement (~5%):http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/1989890http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/1832021Graphics look like they...
There's a demo that gives some Watch home page interaction here:http://demoapplewatch.comIt looks cluttered but I can see advantages with the layout. On the iPhone for example, it would negate the need for reachability if it allowed to you to pull the icons down beyond the top edge:It allows easier rearranging of apps because you don't have to drag apps to the edge of the display and wait for it to swipe over. The grid can pan over very quickly and accelerate as you move...
Someone already managed to get the notifications to work: They claim it works without the phone being jailbroken but it is a jailbroken iPhone they're using. The Moto 360 isn't completely round but the Huawei one is: http://www.theverge.com/2015/3/3/8140837/huawei-watch-design-interview-mwc-2015 You can see they've ramped up security at 1:03, each watch is attached to a springy cord. Reasons to get an Android Wear watch would include that they'd be cheaper and look...
The discussion threads are pretty much gossip, anecdotes, speculation, humor, sometimes meaningful conversation.
If you asked someone to write a biography about you, asking for an honest portrayal is fine. Things like abandoning a daughter is an ugly part to the story. You wouldn't expect them to take cheap shots at you. Isaacson recounted some stories with his own interaction with Steve and in the book puts his own point of view forward as the truth. That's hardly impartial. A biographer isn't supposed to write a story like 'here's what I think of Steve'. It's obvious the guy didn't...
I'd say he cashed in at the right time and the only compromise was showing himself up as a dishonest hack, which was obviously an acceptable compromise for him. His book sold over 1.5 million copies. If that was ~$10 per copy, that's $15m just from rehashing a lot of old stories and taking petty jabs at Steve and Apple and by latching onto Apple, he's now a go-to guy for the press, which allows him to peddle more of his books:http://www.cnbc.com/id/102295918For an official...
Youtube wouldn't have been possible without Flash. Unfortunately Flash filling in the lack of features in browsers meant that content creators started to rely on it too much. It has taken far longer than it should have for browsers to support rich media apps but at least they are there now. You can develop Photoshop-style apps in HTML5:https://www.picozu.com/editor/as well as games:http://origin.cuttherope.ieFlash could never work on mobile. It wasn't adapted properly for...
IBM probably could have deployed these apps and services but they'll get a huge boost from being an official partner with Apple because there's no way that schools buying iPads would immediately think to get in contact with IBM to supply them with software and management capabilities. Similarly Apple doesn't do this kind of server-side data processing for enterprise applications. I think they'll work well together. Microsoft had an advantage in doing both enterprise and...
"Thus far, that amount is thought to have risen into the millions of U.S. dollars, and banks are working on fixes."There are over 60m iPhone 6s out there so $1000 fraud from over 1000 people would be in the millions and only be a small percentage of the users.The good thing is that the more people use Apple Pay and avoid using their cards, the less chance the card details will be stolen. Reports should really be making that clearer that it's not use of Apple Pay that's the...
Saudi Arabia implements some of the same actions as ISIS:http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/mar/01/raif-badawi-could-be-retried-and-beheaded-family-ensaf-haidar-apostasy"Raif Badawi, the Saudi blogger who was sentenced to a decade in prison and 1,000 lashes for insulting Islam, now faces being beheaded for renouncing the religion, his family have...
