The trouble is they have no market experience here yet. They did this with the iPhone starting at $599 subsidized and then dropped the price to $399 once they got a feel for the demand:http://www.engadget.com/2007/09/05/apple-cuts-iphone-price-to-399/It's hard to come out and say they are only making say 10,000 edition units and then discover they could sustain those prices for 50,000 units. At the same time, without saying how many they're making, it's hard for buyers to...
Another advantage with the added focusing lenses is they'd have more freedom to adjust the aperture size.
Adobe has over 13,000 employees, Pixelmator is a team of about 20 in Lithuania and the software was originally based around ImageMagick. Their development resources differ a bit. The Pixelmator team has made millions from sales so they have enough revenue to support their team for a long time and what they've achieved with their team is commendable. I think it would be difficult for that size of team to manage millions of lines of code, Adobe has changed millions of lines...
The theatre room they're putting in there for future keynotes being named after Steve could act as an on-going reminder. Naming the building after Steve would mean everyone sending mail there would see his name though and would make the association with Apple long-lasting and far reaching and would likely also be used to announce the events.It would be good if it represented their core values too though. Microsoft's building is 1 Microsoft Way, Facebook's is 1 Hacker Way,...
They have to allow for gold fluctuating in value. If the gold was 80%, a 25% increase in gold price would mean the watch would make a net loss at retail. Traditional gold watches can be marked up 100% by the manufacturers and then another 50% by resellers so $1000 of gold in a traditional watch could be about $3k at retail but the market eventually decides the price - too fast sales, they up the price, too low and they cut margins.When Apple gives resellers Macs, they sell...
They can incorporate it into the volume buttons, like so:It might be better sliding the lower button up to mute but it depends on which way round it is in the pocket. I assume people would generally have it upwards so pushing a button down in the pocket would be easier. That would still give you a visual indicator and allow you to use the shutter button while it was in mute and for people who never use mute, they'd never see it. Another route could be press-hold lower...
There's a possibility they might go one better though. Skylake is being marketed as having wireless technology that allows wireless charging. The following video shows it working with a mat:If Apple could build a charger that can induce charging at a distance similar to a laptop cable like 1-2m away then they can get rid of cabling altogether for charging. Ideally, there would be a charging brick like Airport Express and you just sit devices near to it. If it had to be...
The refurbs aren't always in stock around the world so the entry one helps maintain a low entry price. That entry price determines the market size they can target, it's a balancing act between volume and profit. Processor performance is reaching a level where entry chips are fine for everyday computing needs so as long as they can maintain the margin, and avoid adversely affecting overall revenue, boosting the unit volume is a sensible move. The Mac line has grown as a...
There are a few old videos on the following site:http://www.cornflex.org/?p=1If you switch the dropdown, you get different videos. It should be quite immersive for a mainstream movie shot in 360 3D and viewed in VR. On Facebook, they'll want to connect people at events so they could have someone on one side of the world wearing Oculus and a group at a meal or something and with a certain camera, they'd be able to stream 3D 360 and to the person on the other side of the...
The entry level iMacs use lower-end parts. Most use 65W+ parts. The following 15W is in one of them:http://ark.intel.com/products/75030/Intel-Core-i5-4260U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2_70-GHzIntel has been confirming that Skylake is going ahead:http://www.pcworld.com/article/2893112/intels-skylake-chips-to-appear-in-tablets-pcs-servers.htmlso they're skipping some Broadwell parts."“We didn’t want to delay it, we talked to our customers, they didn’t want to delay it....
