The 11" Air and 12" MB have the roughly the same size of battery - 38Wh and 39.7Wh respectively. For the 11" Air to reach 9 hours of use, it can only average 4.2W of power draw for everything including the display so even though it has a ~15W CPU, for web browsing, it's not operating anywhere near the peak power usage. The main advantage to the Core M is that even at its peak, it's still low enough power draw to operate with passive cooling. It should be able to maintain a...
Multi-input applications like the iPad keyboard would be a bit trickier with just a single haptic unit. If you pressed 2 keys in close timing to each other, it would have to be able to click twice quickly so it didn't seem unnatural. The software keyboard can also be oriented 4 ways so the position of the motor would be important and might make the sensation feel different depending on the orientation.It also couldn't push the vibration on the back of the display panel...
The exploits listed were "uninitialized stack pointer, buffer overflow condition, out-of-bounds read/write vulnerability, and a time-of-check to time-of-use flaw". It's about time the software development process prevented these by design. The Swift language is designed to prevent some of them but the browser needs fast performance and the webkit codebase is open source and cross-platform so it's in C++. Maybe there can be an intermediate layer between the web content and...
I imagine some people assume complexity equates to better security too e.g typing 4 digits nobody knows vs just pressing the home button. Apple needs to spell it out to people that their pin code is insecure with a warning the way that password boxes do.The iPhone only came out about 6 months ago, even a single digit percentage of new iPhone users is millions of people. They sold 74.5m iPhones up until January, it will have easily topped 100m by now.Some people might be...
The sound I thought of when seeing that Google car was:I think they had Blackberries but they all hated their phones and so they made a phone that was better than what they already had in performance and features and that they would want to use every day.At the very least, it tells us they're not likely to downgrade their high-end cars to a low-end car just like they didn't downgrade their existing phones to low-end phones.So what you're saying is there's a need for some...
Those cases could be down to how the people were cleaning the glass or possibly the environment. Some cleaning fluids will affect AR coatings. If they left the laptop in a cold environment, it might have affected the coating. Someone here with glasses shows cracking in the coating:http://photo.net/off-topic-forum/00ZcjnThe solution isn't 800 euros if they just want to deal with the coating, they can remove it by using the fluid they're not supposed to use to clean it:They...
Apple has started a repair program:http://appleinsider.com/articles/15/02/19/apple-announces-repair-program-for-macbook-pro-laptops-exhibiting-video-issueshttp://www.apple.com/support/macbookpro-videoissues/They might even refund the cost of your repair.
You can install using the system preference, which is faster or you can download the disk image manually from: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ All it's doing is installing a plugin into /Library/Internet Plug-Ins. The plug-in looks like it's downloaded from Adobe during installation so make sure you don't have anything like Little Snitch blocking the connection.
It looks like Nintendo is happy using Apple hardware already:The SDK they use will come into it, it sounds like they want as many platforms as possible, including the PC (possibly Mac). They've ruled out classic game ports, the upcoming titles will all be new. There's another piece of hardware called NX, which they're going to talk more about next year.http://www.wired.com/2015/03/nintendo-dena-mobile/They were talking about the differences in controls and they'd want to...
Nintendo could make a controller for iOS. I expect it would appeal most to iPad users but would work for any iOS device hooked up to a TV. They sell these for $50 for the Wii U so do the same for iOS, just customise the same controller to get MFi certification. The active iPad userbase is well over 100 million users. The Wii U has sold about 9.2m units in 3 years and is only adding 1-2m units per year now. Controller and software sales would be more profitable than the Wii...
