Broadwell-h (quad-i7 for 15" MBP) has been delayed too much, it looks like Intel is going to Skylake:http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/12/08/did-intel-corporation-just-cancel-broadwell-h-and.aspxhttp://www.extremetech.com/computing/198783-fresh-details-leak-on-intel-skylake-chipsets-processorsI'd say the whole lineup will be refreshed in the 2nd half of the year. The Air, MBP and iMac will get Skylake with DDR4, PCIe4 and TB3. If Intel skips Broadwell EP then the...
Objective-C never changed during its first 5 years all the way back in the 80s before the internet? As to source incompatibility, they have an updater and it's better they do any major changes quickly after release.They get crash reports sent to them all the time, it's not a case of listening or not listening to general complaints about crashing.This article is just talking about major companies that have started using Swift. It sounds like you'd rather there was an...
You need 3rd party software to get music back off iOS devices e.g: http://thelittleappfactory.com/irip/ https://www.fadingred.com/senuti/ First of all, check if the music still exists on your Mac. Search for the track name or artist on one of the missing tracks in Spotlight. If it shows up, you might just have to set the music folder location again in iTunes preferences > advanced or drag the songs back into iTunes.
Why would a company like Apple be expected to switch a significant amount of important projects over in a short timeframe? They are hiring engineers for Swift:https://jobs.apple.com/us/search?#&ss=swift&lo=0*USA&pN=0Swift Performance Software Engineer"This open position is for engineers who want to work as part of the Swift team on optimizing the performance of the Swift compiler. This job involves working on the swift optimizer as well as working on improving LLVM, which...
That can justify them making anything - no sale vs 1 sale. People said this about the XServe and 17" MBP, it's leaving money on the table etc. But they've done it in the past and it wasn't a good business setup. Consumer demand changes their market direction.The 5% marketshare figure is misleading as the largest manufacturer has about 27% and their prices go below $400. This is the kind of thing people are...
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...
