They normally go for the full end-to-end eco-system where the quality of the experience is almost fully in their control. Here it really depends on their goal.The worldwide TV numbers reported are 256m in 2011, 238m in 2012, 225m in 2013. Samsung has roughly 25%, LG 16%, Sony 10%. The upgrade cycle is approximately 7 years.What the drop in sales means is not that people are stopping buying TVs (in order to use an Apple TV, it requires you to have a TV), it means that...
Jony Ive was made head of software design but he will have collaborated with his design team on it. Despite being artists (with uniqueness being one the traits - iconic design is typically unique), designers tend to come together on a consensus in a few aspects like use of pantone colors or standard typefaces (Helvetica Neue):http://venturebeat.com/2013/10/15/the-meaning-behind-ios-7s-kaleidoscope-of-colors/These are arrived at for usability. When it comes to a user...
Pixar's and Weta's render farms use 96GB RAM per machine:http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/21/4446606/how-pixar-changed-the-way-light-works-for-monsters-universityThey started using raytracing for more accurate lighting. They mentioned that each frame used 20GB of memory and each machine would do 4 frames at a time. I don't know what target resolution they had but it could just be 2K. The Great Gatsby (2013) was shot at 5K so I'd guess it was mastered to 4K and it used...
The image you attached will show as a preview. Right-clicking and opening the link in a new window shows it full-size.The apps you have open don't look like they'd add up to 4.9GB because the system processes are included in the wired amount. Maybe they've just stopped keeping inactive memory separate in the count. If you run sudo purge in the terminal, that should clear out the inactive app memory. The system would do this when it needed it by itself though.
Titanfall is an online-only multiplayer game so the game is pretty much like Unreal Tournament or Quake where you run around with a gun shooting while teenagers shout obscenities into their headsets:It doesn't look like the fun would last long but there's the added possibility to mess around with XBox guys because it's voice activated so if you use a gamer tag that's one of the XBox audio commands, it can mess their game up:The developers and Microsoft hope that Titanfall...
Yeah that sort of design:although there would have to be large black areas at the top and bottom, possibly under the sapphire for the cameras and home button and I wouldn't expect the display to wrap around like that as it would waste too much battery. It might be too slippery to hold too (and cold).
Fragmentation likely caused this in earlier implementations. If WhatsApp used the encryption in Android 4, it wouldn't have been available to a large portion of Android users. If they do it now, that shouldn't be as much of an issue but 1/5th of the userbase is still 200 million people.But Facebook surely wouldn't want the WhatsApp databases encrypted in such a way that they can't access them. They can have the databases backed up to the SD cards and have the Facebook app...
iOS currently uses quad-core PowerVR and it benchmarks around the same as the Intel HD3000 in cross-platform benchmarks. This is faster than the PS3 and 360. The next generation could be 2x faster if they go with the highest-end GPU option. The PS4 and XBone are 3-10x faster than last-gen so the iOS devices will fall short of the raw capability but visually, it doesn't matter much these days and within another 2-3 generations will match the power. The next iOS devices...
All the ads can be seen on this page:http://isee5c.tumblr.comThey probably should have avoided the sheep one.That's true, there are lots of case options and they'd add enough color to the premium phones and can be changed easily:Apple could have sold cases for the iPhone 5 and 5S with the 5C case designs with the dots and you'd get the best of both - premium build phone and you can pick and choose multiple cases for different occasions. Right now, you have to choose to get...
They'd only be able to port their own franchises:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Nintendo_franchisesIt would be up to 3rd party developers/publishers to port everything else. The classics could find a whole new audience but the best-selling apps in the App Store don't seem to sell more than 10-20 million copies and at a low price. The free to play apps like Candy Crush get way more downloads so in-app purchases for levels could be a route to go down.I doubt they'd...
