It must have been overall revenue, the following article says it was $8b paid to devs in 2013:http://www.tuaw.com/2014/01/07/the-app-store-monster-apple-in-2013-paid-developers-more-than-d/"In January of 2013, Apple indicated that it had cumulatively paid developers $7 billion. By January of 2014, that figure rose to $15 billion. The takeaway from these figures is astounding: During the last calendar year, Apple more than doubled the cumulative amount paid to developers...
That's the same amount as 2013:http://techcrunch.com/2014/01/07/apple-10b-in-app-store-sales-in-2013-15b-paid-out-to-developers-to-date/2007-2012: $5b2013: $10b2014: $10bThe number of payments/billings might be rising but the prices must be going down. Around $1b of the $10b will be going to King/Candy Crush, ~$5b to the top 25 apps (EA Games, Gameloft/Ubisoft etc).
Thread 12 didn't crash on your one, you'd need to post either the whole report or look for which thread crashed. Somewhere in the report, it will say e.g Thread 0 crashed so you'd look for the lines where it says Thread 0 and post the whole block of lines there. Sometimes it will have crashed due to a bug in the software, which only Apple can fix and you'd have to send them the report and wait for an update.
People who get them repaired will be offloading them to other people to avoid it happening to them again. You can try getting it repaired yourself using a service like this:http://www.ebay.com/itm/MACBOOK-PRO-LOGIC-BOARD-REPAIR-A1286-A1297-2008-2009-2010-2011-/221627983327and sell it on, continue using it or just sell it for spares without the repair where you'll get back about 1/3 of what you paid for it. Then get a minimum 2012...
Stick with the one you have. Broadwell is coming for ultraportables like the Air, not the MBP. The MBP chips aren't due for a while:http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/01/quad-core-and-desktop-broadwell-chips-still-mia-expected-mid-2015/
There will be USB-C to USB-A cables but companies will make USB-C thumb drives. This will be like USB 3 where everyone migrates to it but Apple will be one of the few to move to it without support of the older style.
There was also this guy:http://www.bizjournals.com/sanfrancisco/blog/techflash/2014/05/mog-founder-sues-beats-music-for-20-million-says.html?page=alland the Bose suit, which was settled:http://www.cnet.com/uk/news/apples-beats-bose-settle-patent-spat-over-noise-canceling-tech/It's not that many considering the huge amount of money involved. They are probably hoping for a lucky break that a few million here and there won't matter.
The Pop version is a cheap watch at $150, there's a $450 Swiss made version:The majority of watches sold are very cheap. This tells the time, looks nice, is cheap, not bulky, has 8 months of battery life, will inform you of notifications and tracks fitness activity. If that's all people are looking for in a watch, it will be a good option. If it was able to show notification text and fitness data, that would be even better, say the cover glass was like electro-chromic...
I reported on it months ago :http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/181878/questionable-leaks-raise-hopes-that-apple-will-release-new-lightning-cable-with-reversible-usb-connector#post_2581357I'd be surprised if the Thunderbolt port and mag-safe are removed, I don't think that's necessary. It cuts out access to high-end peripherals for the majority of Apple's customers.Mag-safe can be replaced by an induction connector with no exposed pins. That means they can go back to using...
