Apple has enough cash to ride out at least another decade even if they screw absolutely everything up.I doubt they'd let anyone know but it makes sense for Tim to be there and maybe even located in the middle so that people from every part of the circle have a very small distance to go to reach him. It's a really good shape for an office where so many people have to work together because that middle area can act as a meeting point for people and an easy way to move between...
Rosetta was binary translation between PPC and Intel:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosetta_(software)The slow, buggy thing was the Classic Environment, which was used to ease the transition between OS 9 and OS X:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classic_EnvironmentThe Mac Pro GPUs don't add much cost to the Mac Pro. It's $400 to upgrade both to the D500. These machines just have very high gross margins. XServes may well be missed but if those people who miss them were large in...
It's 10% of the US market, not global. The global market is about 70m units. The largest manufacturers have production runs of around 9m units, Tesla has about 55k. If Apple targeted 1m units at $50k retail price then that satisfies the $50b revenue with under 1.5% of the worldwide market. It's unrealistic for a first-year model because they have to assess demand and get past all kinds of regulations but they can top Tesla's volume no problem. VW is probably the best...
Positive and negative comments wouldn't result in the same outcome. Other members would gloss over positive comments. In much the same way if you said to your partner 'you look nice today' vs 'you're not the slim person I married and you could use a bath'. Only one of those statements is likely to result in conflict. You can give negative feedback to authors directly by email so it's not like that opinion is stifled. Expressing that negativity in the discussion thread is...
Not really:http://appleinsider.com/articles/10/11/08/alleged_steve_jobs_e_mail_says_hardly_anyone_was_buying_apples_xservesWhy not? They do the job ok. It's just not an area where Apple can add enough value to persuade people to buy the hardware.I think it's important. The transition to Intel would have been awful without it. I think it would be easier in future but there's also more software available that needs to be updated.They managed Rosetta ok.They can do both. As...
Their operating costs are around $18b including $6b R&D. They made $1.7b in interest on their cash so just over 1%. To pay operating expenses on just interest, they'd need cash of about $1.8t. It would be very difficult to maintain that let alone grow it with interest. The cash they keep mainly acts as a reserve. $100b would give them just over a 5 year reserve so that's good to maintain. Income beyond a reasonable reserve can be returned to shareholders.Maybe they've been...
It looks fake but it would be unlikely that anyone else would know you'd applied. Have you tried replying to it? If none of the links in the email are to suspicious websites, just reply to the email.
http://petapixel.com/2013/03/18/shopped-stills-from-action-movies-with-guns-replaced-with-thumbs-ups/People who believe there's a connection between gun violence and games normally don't play games. Feminists who don't play games also think that games objectify women. The conclusions are already made and picking a game up for 5 minutes and seeing a character with a gun or a women in a dress will immediately lead these people to justify their conclusions.What gets confused...
Apple isn't in competition with Intel. They originally wanted to use Intel for iOS devices but it was Tony Fadell who convinced them otherwise:http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2011/10/26/steve-jobs-wanted-intel-chips-for-the-ipad/It was the right decision to go with ARM for iOS as they control the launch times, the chip features, the power draw without giving any of the advantages away to their competition. The PC market has run its course and breaking legacy for speed...
There's a test here that managed 2160p at 50Mbps bitrate, it should be at least 30fps:http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/11/21/apples-a8-soc-reportedly-capable-of-4k-video-output-may-pave-way-for-ultra-high-resolution-apple-tvhttp://www.tuaw.com/2014/11/21/exclusive-the-iphone-6s-a8-chip-can-play-4k-video/
