I don't recall proposing either of those things nor whatever the 'rather than' comparison option would be. I was merely offering a suggestion as to why wealth has a negative association. No one would be surprised that greed has a negative association but there's confusion about the accumulation of excess wealth having a negative association.The product is all about style. The gold one looks much nicer than the lower ones. These cost $350, $750 and $17,000 respectively.The...
What people need can be determined quite easily by anyone by assessing their lifestyle. People of a certain body size only need a certain amount of food and water intake per day. A family only needs a single home. What people want is a different thing entirely. Nobody needs a gold watch (or a watch at all), it's a luxury.Determining greed is done by weighing up how excessive the difference is between how much is needed and how much is taken or owned. It's also relative, if...
The clone has to be more than just a direct copy, in the following video, there's an option in the clone software to make it bootable:People have installed SSDs into 2006 Macbooks so it should be ok. It looks like they just support SATA 1 (1.5Gbps) but it should still work.It won't boot Yosemite. Non-bootable drives show as the question mark.Check what partition map the hard drive that works is using, use the same one and use a clone software that has an option to make the...
There are billionaires who get their cars gold plated as well as other items:http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/05/23/dubai-hotel-provides-guests-with-imacs-24-karat-gold-ipadThe prices there are around $10k but given the size of the iPad, it must either be a thin layer of solid gold or high quality plating. The iPhone 6 here doesn't look too bad:http://www.technologytell.com/apple/143406/worlds-first-real-24k-gold-plated-ipad-air-2-now-available/
The article wasn't demonising the wealthy by simply pointing out that expensive products are going to be targeted at people who can afford them. Some people at Apple were against the watch because of the class problem it would create. They prefer their products to be accessible to anyone.People are being raised to believe that greed is evil and rightly so and have been taught this for millennia."greed (grēd) n.An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one...
There's an image test here with the 6 Plus vs Canon 5D: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2014/10/smartphone-camera-vs-dslr/2/ and here's a video test with the iPhone 6: Most of the difference comes from light sensitivity. Smartphones can reach high enough resolutions to compete with DSLR for sharpness. If the smartphone moves to a multi-lens setup then it will improve further, it can use multiple sensors and new sensor materials for improved sensitivity. Graphene was...
Selfie sticks help people who just can't get the right angle. Take this girl who spent ages trying to take the right shot: Selfie-takers get their comeuppance anyway: I don't think the WWDC rules will be for people taking selfies but people filming the stage including ones with DSLRs using a monopod to get above people's heads. Perhaps Apple could setup a main camera and let people stream this feed on their own site live. They like to edit things out though.
The aim of net neutrality is to get better services for consumers. Google, who backed it, says that's not a direct consequence of the rulings: http://9to5google.com/2015/04/14/google-fiber-expansion/ "Net Neutrality doesn’t move the needle for consumers, enabling competition is key "No consumers are seeing higher speeds than before the order was passed; no consumers are paying less for their Internet services than what they were paying for; no consumers are seeing...
The numbers aren't all that low. 66% own an iPhone so 11% would be 1 in 6 iPhone owners. It's an iPhone accessory that not everyone is going to want. Apple currently sells 40-75m iPhones per quarter, it'll probably top 200m this year so 1/6th of that would be about 30m watches in a year. Some expectations are 10-15m so 5% interest level would be in line with that. The interest level of tablets and smartphones is also telling. Note the 5% current ownership of...
Anandtech has an in-depth review:http://www.anandtech.com/show/9136/the-2015-macbook-review/9Under gaming and heavy benchmarking, they found the base temperature reached 43 degrees Celsius. Body temperature is 37. They say these temperatures would be uncomfortable to touch but shouldn't be a problem. The CPU is in the middle at the back so the hot spot is probably more isolated like in the iPads.
