It's just their target demographic, which is more casual gamers:http://www.joystiq.com/2009/02/19/nielsen-wii-audience-is-youngest-ps3-audience-is-oldest/"the Wii appeals to quite the broad spectrum of people, being especially popular among boys age 6 -11 and women age 25 - 34. Most interesting is the Wii's ability to captivate the older women audience, as the console's use by women over 35 is much higher than that of the Wii's competition. And they're apparently playing...
You're going all Padme on us:People still have to manually choose to visit websites, they aren't all being broadcast to you like TV and people are prosecuted for what they say online already:http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/12/01/us-usa-court-socialmedia-idUSKCN0JF2W120141201"a Pennsylvania man found guilty of making threatening statements to his estranged wife, law enforcement officers and others on Facebook after his wife left him. His Facebook posts, written in the...
http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/02/23/shape-things-come"Bob Mansfield, then closely involved in the watch project, said that Ive’s role was to be “himself and Steve” combined. Yet Ive still had to make a case to Apple, and Mansfield recalled “a lot of resistance.” It wasn’t clear how the company would display such things in stores; there were also concerns about creating a divide between wealthy and less wealthy customers. (As Mansfield said, “Apple wants to build...
Yeah if they manage to get say 25 GFLOPs per Watt, the high-end chip would still be over 20W and would need active cooling. iOS products are about 5W. The Apple TV has a 5W power supply so it would need a bigger PSU. The chip cost would be higher too but another factor in the cost would be storage as you couldn't fit many games on the 8GB storage it has. It would need about 32GB minimum. Then there's the controller. You can't sell a console without a controller, nor can...
That Rolex has a gold strap though and the whole body is gold. The Apple Watch has a huge circular area at the bottom for the sensors so the only gold part is the bezel (there will be some on the strap clasps but they'll be priced separately). Someone took apart the Rolex and weighed each part:http://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=240119The bracelet alone had 51 grams.The case ring would be closest to what Apple has, which is about 14 grams of gold or 0.5 ounces as...
The former is anti-competitive, the latter isn't.This FCC?:This already happens y'know, it's just not the FCC doing it:http://www.fbi.gov/newyork/press-releases/2014/dozens-of-online-dark-markets-seized-pursuant-to-forfeiture-complaint-filed-in-manhattan-federal-court-in-conjunction-with-the-arrest-of-the-operator-of-silk-road-2.0Just like how they control what you can and can't say over the telephone?Very few people who make statements like this expand on the statement...
Yeah, they were probably geeking out on Star Wars or something:http://www.adweek.com/galleycat/the-science-fiction-books-that-inspired-elon-musk/68213"Obviously, I am a huge fan of Star Wars and Star Trek, all the things you would expect."http://www.theverge.com/2015/2/16/8044727/jony-ive-lightsaber-design"The new lightsaber that appeared in the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens provoked some strong reactions last year, but how much more would people care if it...
If you added a comment from the article page, that might be why. Try clicking through to the forum first and then add the comment.
A small touch bar with end-points would probably be better so that you could steady the watch without it recognising it as home and scroll on the right without touching the left bar although it would know to ignore gestures that weren't home, which would be press and hold (maybe use a pressure sensor).These would be on each side and central. Not buttons and not sticking out as far but fixed and water sealed touch areas with an edge you can feel. They also mean you could...
It's the likes of these: http://www.walmart.com/tp/tablets-under-100 They're using ok processors too even in the $50-60 models e.g: http://www.mediatek.com/en/products/mobile-communications/tablet/mt8127/ They have poor quality displays but easily something you could give as a gift or to a kid to throw around. For books, movie playback and some games, they'd do the job ok at about 1/4 the price of the iPad. These kind of companies are happy to make $5 on a $50-60...
