Given that it's used for FaceTime here, Apple had to get it to do real-time encoding, which is pretty impressive if it's 720p.Intel's Broadwell and NVidia Maxwell went with a hybrid approach:http://www.anandtech.com/show/8355/intel-broadwell-architecture-preview/3So they only do partial processing in fixed function hardware and the rest using programmable shaders. Still, they say even lower end processors can handle 4K decoding and they are aiming to have real-time 1080p...
It would need the light from the stars to exist at the same time of observation though. It takes million/billions of years for light to travel from some stars so even in an infinite universe, the lifespans have to overlap. The universe would also have to be truly infinite with infinite light sources and not just planets. And the light sources are mostly opaque so a weak light source at a given point is as bright as that observable point in space can be as it obscures...
Or use this $20 accessory:http://www.belkin.com/us/p/P-F8W105/Or one designed more for the wrist at $12.95:http://www.phubby.com/wrist-cubby.htmlIt's like an iWatch+ (i.e an iWatch plus all the extra functionality you need to have with you anyway).The Garmin Forerunner 220 looks like a fairly slim GPS watch:Most are fairly bulky. What's needed is an innovative company that can engineer a small GPS antenna. If only there was a company renowned for innovation around...
It depends on what we're calling 'space'. To arrive at beige, scientists studied "the colour of light emitted by 200,000 galaxies and have combined them to produce the colour":http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/space/6487622/The-universe-is-beige.htmlIf I said what color is a parking space and you park a red car in it and say it's red, that's not the color of the space. A parking space is grey as it's concrete. I suppose that could be the space they meant rather than outer...
Nobody cares about these publications any more. These magazines became popular before the internet. The internet only really took off in the late 90s:http://royal.pingdom.com/2008/04/04/how-we-got-from-1-to-162-million-websites-on-the-internet/By that time, the early magazines had 15 year runs. Even at that point, broadband wasn't ubiquitous so the CDs that came with large free software installers were good to get. I had loads of issues of Macworld and some others but...
It has some sensors like accelerometer, gyro and barometer so it can track your relative movement but it won't know where you are in the world and probably can't calculate overall distance accurately. If you don't plan to be looking at the watch regularly to check heart rate or timing, the iPhone on its own will do the job just fine. Without the iPhone nearby, the watch will be almost useless for fitness tracking. They can always add GPS before launch though.
It would just be the champagne gold color of the iPhone not bling gold:I'm not a fan of the space grey iPhone, I preferred the original black version:I like the current MBP color for use in a laptop and is close to space grey already:I don't know why they call it space grey either, space is black. Space is in fact about as black as you can get given that it's black due to a complete absence of light reflecting off anything. Moon grey would be more appropriate.The moon is...
Not quite, it doesn't generate enough heat to warrant a fan. It's like how an iPad works. 4.5W is in the same region as an iPad. They can have a non-mechanical fan too. I doubt they'd downgrade it significantly, the Iris Pro in the rMBP was upgraded with a custom TDP. I'd expect the same from the Air. Having a 4.5W TDP leaves a lot of room for increasing performance.That's why I was saying the 13" rMBP would be the best option at the moment. It's the most powerful model,...
You don't perhaps have anything that might be interfering with your wifi such as a baby monitor or other wireless device? Have you tried adjusting the wifi channels: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3900962?tstart=0
I'd say more Casio than Cartier:The way the strap attaches, the roundness of the rectangular shape (Cartier has sharper corners), the buttons, the highlights. It's somewhere between the two anyway and IMO it should be trying to compete with the Cartier for wrist space but easily falls short.It wouldn't be a full iPhone, it has no keyboard so it can never be the same experience as the phone - no mobile browsing, no typing documents. This would be a personal assistant where...
