Filesystems do have an inode limit for the amount of files they can handle. I suppose if each app had hundreds of internal files like icons, language files, other images resources then it could creep up quite high overall but I'd expect it to hold up to as much as OS X.http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/LVM-and-VxVM/How-to-increase-inodes-on-HFS-filesystem/td-p/4052199
It will make it trickier to figure out but we know the iPod sales this year and they are in decline so no more than 2.9m units. Apple TV is around 2m units per quarter. Beats headphones apparently sold 15-20m units in 7 years so quarterly units could be below 1m units but they probably grew sales in more recent years so if we assume 50% of sales were in the last year, that's 2.5m units per quarter. They might not lump subsidiary sales into that group but they'll have to...
That's what they do with the Air with the exception of the old Core 2 Duo parts, CPU performance hasn't even doubled in 3 years, some CPU performance is almost the same from one year to the next. GPU performance has improved a bit more so that's really the only concern moving to low TDP but the Air is marketed as a thin, light productive machine, not a desktop replacement like the Pro.The performance could still go up for the 15". Like I say, a 2x improvement in...
To get round WSJ's paywall, put the article title into Google and then click the link and you'll be able to read the whole article.Johnson still hasn't explained how it works or what the problem really is that he's trying to solve, it seems that he's keeping this part a secret - probably to avoid a competitor doing it first.This article makes it sound like rather than going in to a store, they'll have trained people to bring a product round and demonstrate it or help you...
Is it from so many apps being installed or them running in the background? Unlike desktop systems, you have to quit apps using the multi-tasking view. Every time an app is launched, it sits in that multi-tasking view until it is quit by the user, even after a reboot. Double-tap the home button to open that view and then swipe all the apps up to properly shut them down (might take a while for 700 apps but at least you can do more than one at a time now). You can also do a...
I think they'll manage to fit Bale into a close enough likeness and they can get away without the kind of imitation makeup job they did with Kutcher: The 3 events are supposedly going to be the Mac, NeXT and the iPod. At the Mac event, Steve had long hair and no beard, NeXT was slightly shorter hair no beard though I'm not sure what event it would be: The iPod was short grey hair with a short beard.
It depends on the benefits. Smaller components will heat up faster so they might not be able to clock them as high so you may not be able to get 2x performance at the same wattage. It seems like it should be possible to get double performance at the same wattage instead of the same performance at half but it doesn't work like that. You simply can't overclock a current chip to 6GHz because it can't handle the heat generated from it.I think there's a benefit to going fanless...
Using terms like 'rich people' as a target of criticism sends the wrong message. There's nothing wrong with being wealthy, the problem is the reward/contribution ratio, which is a symptom of already being wealthy or being put in a privileged position. Take really bad CEOs/execs/middle managers for example, they get paid high salaries relative to their front-line staff. The front-line staff can easily be doing a great job and the top-level staff sitting back doing very...
If they cancelled it or reversed it, that's a pretty firm statement to make to investors. They'd effectively be telling investors currently holding shares that there won't be any growth worth bothering about so you might as well sell if you're in it for growth.They are high numbers but Google's at 27x. Let's not forget that the market is priced by people, not by Apple's success. What Apple does only plays a part in the valuation. Lowered confidence in their competition...
Apple says "The Company’s share repurchase program does not obligate it to acquire any specific number of shares. Price volatility over a given period may cause the average price at which the Company repurchases its own stock to exceed the stock’s price at a given point in time."They've committed to spending a certain amount by a certain time and to me the wording suggests it will happen regardless of the price they buy. I assume they'll try and time it when it's as low as...
