The synopsis is here:http://schedule.sxsw.com/2015/events/event_FS17862"When Steve Jobs died the world wept. But what accounted for the grief of millions of people who didn’t know him? This evocative film navigates Jobs' path from a small house in the suburbs, to zen temples in Japan, to the CEO's office of the world's richest company, exploring how Jobs’ life and work shaped our relationship with the computer. The Man in the Machine is a provocative and sometimes...
The Microsoft Stores are the waiting rooms for the Apple Store when it's too busy, that's why they are located nearby.They're going to have to stock handbags and manbags too for the phablets.Based on the complete lack of information about what she has and hasn't done since she was hired? What about Eddy Cue, what's he doing all day long?It would kinda stink up the place but I could see some appeal in that. They'd need to install iToilets. They'd be the coolest toilets in...
The iPhone 4S in 2011 was glass.The HTC One in 2012 looked like this:The HTC One in 2013 looked like this as a direct response to the 2012 iPhone 5:And they have the cheek to say Apple copied them. Tacky advert and lying. Why don't companies like Samsung, Microsoft and HTC understand that lying to customers and putting out really low budget ads isn't the way to go about this? Sony has the right idea:But that style needs to be directed the right way into something that...
Maybe it's an X-Men spin-off masquerading as a Steve Jobs biopic. Rogen will actually turn into Mystique part of the way through when they're invited for lunch to the White House. That would be much better.
Political environment more favorable to corporations = corporatist government. Corporatist government is bad when it bails out the banks using taxpayer money but corporatist government is good when it reduces the tax expenditure of a major corporation? Apple isn't using its cash in the limbo it is stuck in now because it wants to invest it in the US. One billionaire shareholder talks about it here:https://www.greenlightcapital.com/905284.pdf"Occasionally, a U.S. company...
On the plus side, he's there. We can all stay here and it solves both our problems.Whose reality? South Korea has the world's fastest internet specifically because of government involvement:http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/03/31/broadband.south.korea/"The idea behind an "open" system is essentially that, for a fee, broadband providers must share the cables that carry Internet signals into people's homes.Companies that build those lines typically oppose this sharing. A number...
How would shareholders ever see the benefit of the cash if it's permanently left overseas?It's the same principle people use to justify the low tax rate - it's a smaller percentage of something vs nothing.Right now shareholders get nothing because the cash is overseas. With a 14% rate, they get access to 86% of a massive amount of cash. Unless they think they'll ever get above 86% then suing wouldn't be in their best interests.They don't sue over paying other taxes like...
Lorin Schultz on the forum who is an audio engineer posted about this: http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/178129/rumor-apple-to-offer-hi-res-24-bit-tracks-on-itunes-in-coming-months#post_2514451 He said he worked with people who were convinced they could tell the difference and I assume that's the audience for the Pono. I know I can tell the difference between I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and butter. With audio, I don't really care enough about the difference. If...
A silent movie with Kutcher would have worked. If you mute the audio on the following trailer and ignore the poor makeup at the end, it works ok:Audio might be a problem with Fassbender too though because he's Irish. Irish into an English accent is ok like you can see here in X-Men:Here Fassbender puts on an American accent, listen to 0:37 especially where he says 'bashful half smoile' (he's the guy in the mask):That's pretty bad, it slips way too easily back to Irish. I...
They use better quality where it makes sense. They've never made the best mice, they've used poor quality display panels in products, their webcams aren't the highest quality, they don't make the best buds headphones. Beats captured a large market, nobody else comes close, there are stats here:http://recode.net/2014/10/04/nfl-bans-beats-headphones-on-camera/Beats got 61% of headphones above $100, Bose 22%, Sony 2%. That leaves 15% between the likes of Sennheiser, Bang and...
