Their SEC filings are here:http://ir.aol.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=147895&p=irol-10k10qLast year, they made $1.92b from advertising, $606m from subscribers to anti-virus software, premium video services etc. They own Engadget, TechCrunch, Huffington Post, Moviefone, Makers, StyleMePretty, MapQuest. People using any of those sites keep AOL alive.$995m in advertising revenue from their own sites. $856m from 3rd party sites, $407m is from Google search. They sell ad services to 3rd...
The u2515h would be a good choice for that price. You can run 4K displays at 1440p 60Hz too though so that would save you buying another display later to get 4K. It might not be as sharp as a native 1440p display but you shouldn't see the pixels:http://www.muada.com/2015/03-22-using-a-dell-p2415q-4k-monitor-with-a-2013-macbook-pro.htmlhttp://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1816805&page=20Someone there used software to expand the display options. One of the options...
According to Apple, only the 13" from 2015 onwards will support 60Hz:https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT20285630Hz isn't worth it. If you check out the following site, turn the motion blur off on the boxes at the top and switch the fps to 30 on any of the objects and you'll see the judder introduced:http://frames-per-second.appspot.comThis would be visible in everything that is moved around like when scrolling, moving windows, moving the mouse.If that kind of lag wouldn't...
A 7" tablet form factor might be a bit too large if Nintendo's next device was the successor to the DS too. The 3DS is around the size of an iPhone 6 Plus so a 5" screen like on the Playstation Vita would be more pocketable: The DS name comes from it having dual screens so that can't be used and there was confusion with the Wii U being a Wii accessory. The name Chii fits with the naming of the Wii and would represent small, unifying between the console and mobile and...
There will be hubs available like the following:http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/2015-new-3port-reversible-USB-3_60193629165.htmlUSB C is the new standard so expect as many hubs as the old USB A. It would still be tricky to have a display, card reader plus USB drive all at once without a larger adaptor like this one:https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kickshark/hydradock-11-port-usb-c-dock-for-apple-macbook/video_shareIt would have been better if the Macbook had two...
I wouldn't bother with the SSD upgrade and battery replacement. You are running out of RAM and the SSD won't fix it. You need a minimum of 8GB. The GPU in the newer models can use up to 1GB of the internal memory too so you might still get some swap used with 8GB but not nearly as bad as with your current model.The Macbook is lacking in ports but if you never use the Thunderbolt port and only have a single USB drive, it would be suitable. It's faster than the 2011 Air.The...
Their next console is rumored to be coming next year:http://www.slashgear.com/nintendo-nx-console-coming-2016-with-brand-new-concept-18374102/AAA developers like Nintendo tend to have more involved development processes than Indie games. They have to do quality assurance, register trademarks, arrange marketing. 5 games in 2 years is less than their DS and 3DS but they don't develop all the games they...
For Youtube on the iPad, you'd open a browser, go to m.youtube.com, tap the share button just left of the URL box and tap 'add to home screen' and name it Youtube or something. It won't be quite the same as having the app but with the app setup, the browser would always kick you out into the Youtube app to watch a video and you'd have to use the app switcher to get back to the browser. Now it's all in the browser.The iPad 1 is 5 years old, beyond even the extended warranty...
There wouldn't be a cursor, it would just use selected states. If you enable a text input box, it would show a character entry method and on dismissing this via an option on the virtual keyboard, a Force Touch or one of the buttons, it would switch to selecting content boxes. The two buttons can always be used to represent moving down a UI level and back up.They have an icon view just now where making a movement on the controller changes the selection state from one icon...
There are a few ways they can do text input with a touch remote vs buttons. They can go the easy route of allowing you to just pan over the grid of letters but the following layout at the bottom would be more efficient: With the letters arranged in a circle like that, to hit any single letter, you just swipe in the direction of the letter in a single movement and it would zoom the area to make the selection more precise. The character set could be switched out for...
