He said that Beats hardware will recoup the $3b over time and the music service would effectively have been free so it doesn't need to make a significant profit. Plus they monetize users by selling tracks through iTunes on top of the subscriptions so it's not just about direct profit on the streaming service.If they sell 2 million Beats headphones per quarter at $100, they make ~$200m revenue every quarter. The margins on headphones are high (60%+) so $120m per quarter...
Windows 10 isn't a free upgrade from XP. For older systems, you have to do clean installs. When you quit VMWare, the free space in the disk image is still being used but it frees up the RAM. I think it would be nice if all unused space was freed up. For using with a couple of apps, just sticking with XP is ok.
Intel released Haswell EP chips at the end of last year, there was a rumor about 14-core but they actually go up to 18-core:http://ark.intel.com/products/81059/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-2697-v3-35M-Cache-2_60-GHzhttp://ark.intel.com/products/81061/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5-2699-v3-45M-Cache-2_30-GHzThese would support DDR4 memory so higher than 64GB. AMD has new GPUs they can use too. However, I think the next move is to go Retina to bring the Mac Pro up to par with the 5K...
Microsoft makes a significant portion of revenue from Windows, these are numbers for 2014: Microsoft Office system $24.3b Windows PC operating system $16.8b Server products and tools $17b Xbox Platform $8.6b Consulting and product support services $4.8b Advertising $4b Phone $3b (iPhone made $102b) Surface $1.9b (iPad made $30b) Other $6.2b Total $86.8b Even though the XBox looks high, it doesn't make good net profits because the costs are...
The following site says Broadwell-U will be coming in February/March/April:http://www.techspot.com/news/59328-intel-updates-nuc-lineup-broadwell-chips-swappable-lids.htmlCore-i3 in February, i5 in March, i7 in April. Apple could bring out a new Air in March and not ship the configurable i7 models until a couple of weeks later. Intel might drop Broadwell H because Skylake is on schedule:http://www.fudzilla.com/news/36782-intel-confirms-skylake-on-timeBroadwell H was due in...
Intel has a roadmap going to 4nm in 2022:http://uk.hardware.info/news/16468/intel-shows-roadmap-of-up-to-4nm-in-2022Performance has gone up over 5x between 2008 and 2014 for both CPU and GPU. If the same thing happens between 2014 and 2020, a Macbook Pro will be 2x the CPU speed of the current 12-core Mac Pro with a GPU close to the current GTX 980. They can go further than that into 2022. They can possibly stack chips into layers.It will slow down upgrades but it won't be...
It's hard to generalise because every relationship is different. It's not good for people to be dishonest with each other and one form of dishonesty can lead to another. Infidelity can be in retaliation for something else. I agree that divorce should be the route to go but it's up to the people involved if they will be better or worse off. Some people have open relationships.
You can't know how you'll feel after living with someone for a long period of time. People tend to get bored with the same things. They provide a sense of familiarity and comfort but try eating your favorite food for 30 days straight. Jackie Kennedy cheated on her husband too (in response to his infidelity). Not to mention people change over time.I think the two can be separated but there should be awareness of the character that is being promoted and also that many...
