If they make back the money they spent on Beats with the headphones, they got Iovine and Dre and a streaming service for free. Iovine wanted to plug Apple's music hole:http://www.macrumors.com/2014/12/03/jimmy-iovine-on-apple-acquisition/He obviously has contacts, can get exclusives from top artists and knows the music scene. He'll add value to iTunes and the headphones will pay for it. Beats won't rest at its current iteration, they'll update and improve the products over...
Someone had similar problems with the 2012 Mac Pro and the Radeon 290x, rebooting to Windows got rid of the glitches: http://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=30542 "the 290x does the picture glitches as well in yosemite. So I'm concluding its not an issue with the D700/280x model of cards. The 290 is a different chipset." It could be AMD's GPUs or the drivers. Rendering UHD files on both GPUs will max them out. Motion's GPU exports have had glitches in...
Then why is there any concern about it at all? Not all reports are focusing on privacy but quite a few are:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2890086/Apple-Pay-s-UK-launch-delayed-privacy-concerns-Major-bank-said-uncomfortable-sharing-data.htmlThe source mentioned data collection but that was mentioned as a possibility with the access Apple asked for.
It's one bank, reports are pluralizing it and saying 'at least one bank' for obvious reasons. The quote they use is about the data Apple will be allowed to access, which would be why it's described as a beachhead - a potential for an attack but not an indication of a desire to do that nor invade privacy.So the bank has information collected about customers already and Apple's terms must be saying to allow them some access to it. This is being packaged up as a concern over...
Art imitates life.http://abcfamily.go.com/shows/baby-daddy"Baby Daddy is a half-hour comedy that follows Ben, a young man in his early 20s living the life of a bachelor in New York City with his buddy, Tucker, and his brother, Danny. Their lives are turned upside down when they come home one day to find a baby girl left on the doorstep by an ex-girlfriend of Ben's. After much deliberation, Ben decides to raise the baby with the help of his friends and his protective and...
He seems to have a good approval rating:http://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Reviews/Walt-Disney-Company-Reviews-E717.htmHe was going to retire from Disney in 2016 but extended his contract to 2018:http://www.buzzfeed.com/peterlauria/why-bob-iger-may-not-leave-disney-in-2016I like his wife's name, Willow Bay:She could be a Bond girl with a name like that.Iger has been CEO since 2005. Eisner before him was CEO since 1984 and he became a billionaire over this time, probably just from...
The ROI on Beats will come from the headphones. They'll probably report this in their filings in January but lump it in with accessories. I reckon they'll be making about $175m net profit on the headphones every quarter so assuming it's growing, it would pay back the $3b in under 4 years. Streaming is popular with users but it doesn't monetize well so far. You can see this with the following example, the streaming services made just $200k vs $2.6m on...
It doesn't say 'high amount', it could possibly be:'It is understood the bank is uncomfortable with the low amount of personal and financial information Apple wants to collect about its customers.'Obviously the bank knows how many times a customer uses their own cards but they get no data about their competition. Customers could be using a competitor's cards much more frequently and a bank would never know. That would match up with their fear that they'd take on a lower...
I'd like to see streaming replace cinemas but some movie producers are strongly against it as they don't want people watching their films on small screens. There was a director who complained about people who watch movies at home and eat while they're watching as they aren't paying attention to the film. Instant streaming will help piracy too. You can't pirate a movie that is only being shown in cinemas unless someone films the screening. Streaming movies just have to get...
How did you install Mavericks? If you cloned it, check that you formatted the SSD as GUID partition map in Disk Utility. Does the drive appear as a boot option when you hold down alt/option at boot?
