Like Chrome for iOS you mean?
Yeah, you're right, people acting in their self-interest usually ends badly. We should do everything possible to get them to act in the best interests of others.They can obviously choose to ignore items they don't deem newsworthy but what's the criteria? Lack of evidence, unreliable sources etc. Multiple people are posting photos of their bent phones. The number is minuscule compared to shipped units so they shouldn't sensationalise it but some news networks are actually...
Yes, I think they should promote the idea of articles standing alone rather than magazines and newspapers. Magazines are compiled the way they are in the physical world because that's the only way they work. You wouldn't walk all the way to a magazine stall for a single page. So all they've done is take the entire magazine concept and put it into the digital world and it doesn't work very well because the delivery and expectations are entirely different. The constraints of...
This happens every time someone has a problem i.e 'I don't have the problem so you can't have the problem either'. It doesn't work like that. Some people are fat, some people are thin, people have different sized clothing and pockets and do different activities. Every account is going to be a singular experience so not representative of everyone.What we know is that some people have bought iPhones for themselves and they're damaged. It's unlikely to be widespread this soon...
These are the ones with the defective NVidia 8600M GT graphics boards. You can try connecting it with the DVI cable that should come with the display:http://www.amazon.com/BlueRigger-Digital-Dual-Link-Cable-Black/dp/B009WA4EBUbut if the GPU has broken, the external won't work either or if it does, it won't work for long.
They don't need to do anything that drastic, just reinforcing the sim slot and volume button holes should be enough. That is of course if it happens to a lot of people. If it only happens to a few people then they'll get replacements or a different model.
I like the concept as I wouldn't want an app per publication but having a paywall for every magazine means my Newsstand is empty. Google has made their Newsstand app available for iOS now:http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/23/6834497/google-play-newsstand-now-available-iosIt has a better setup in that you can add all sorts of feeds and blogs into it as well as paid media:Having a paywall is bad for media discoverability and why I prefer Netflix over iTunes for the majority of...
The weak points on both are the lines across the phone between the volume button and top of the sim slot, shown here: The distance from the top is almost the same on both so the leverage is coming from the bottom. Imagine if the top part is sitting fixed and the part below is moving up and down as the leg moves up and down when sitting down and getting up. If that happens over a long period of time then it's not unreasonable to expect some warping. They wouldn't be put...
They will do stress tests but not necessarily ones that reflect every scenario. They might for example hold a phone in a grip at either end and have a device poke it in the middle but that's not the weak point. To simulate being in a pocket, they should really warm it up and apply pressure to either end across a mildly curved solid surface at different angles.
Exactly, or better yet, leave it at home and take a normal sized phone out with you.No, they tried to bend it back and the metal cracked as well as the display.Yes:A little warping but nothing major. The iPhone 5 was shown in a video here:It looks like they did that in the Apple Store to try and get a replacement, which is kinda silly if they are trying to prove it happened accidentally. The bend point was the same at the volume button but on the other side of the phone,...
