It doesn't look like it's in Amazon's best interests to win either. Their ebooks aren't tied to their hardware nor do they make much profit. They make more profit with higher prices. The following says Amazon had 90% marketshare of ebooks at one point:http://www.justice.gov/atr/cases/f299200/299275.pdfhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_v._Apple_Inc.Amazon had complained about the authors preventing them discounting books and set the whole thing in motion. The...
Sounds like it's time for Uber to get into wifi with some long range transmitters or Elon Musk to get his satellites in place without blowing most of them up. These data plans aren't enough for basic web browsing. Europe has the right idea: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-33325031 "Data roaming charges to end in EU within two years Data roaming charges are set to be abolished within the European Union by June 2017, it has been announced. The ban will be preceded by a...
They got Jimmy Iovine, Dre and the most popular premium headphone market. There's no way that Jay Z would be calling Tim Cook to go easy on Tidal if Iovine and Dre weren't in with them. Once big names get on board with Apple Music, the other artists will do the same.The hardware might not be all that profitable, the figures don't stand out. The iPod line is falling fast but even with Beats hardware sales included, their 'other' revenue still fell so Beats sales didn't help...
It would have a range of force so it can be used for drawing apps and games. One advantage with it being used for a home button action is that it can animate the transition the harder you press to allow you to cancel the action so no more accidental home button presses. Given that they'll allow it for apps, the home button action would likely be placed offscreen. They can print a rounded square on the lower bezel so people know it's the home button but then there's the...
Late/early 2013 will be the difference:https://support.apple.com/kb/SP669?locale=en_UShttps://support.apple.com/kb/SP690?locale=en_USThe late 2013 model moved to Thunderbolt 2 and doubled the port bandwidth. 4K at 60Hz needs 3840x2160 x 60 x 24 = 11.9Gbps. The 10Gbps port isn't fast enough. Some displays allow you to plug in two displayport cables to support the higher resolution at full speed but it doesn't look like that monitor does that. There's a guide here to set it...
Someone here says they got a 2013 MBP to work at full resolution 60Hz:http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/peripherals/f/3529/t/19621996Are you connecting it via a mini-displayport to displayport cable plugged into the Thunderbolt port?http://www.amazon.com/Cable-MattersĀ®-DisplayPort-Thunderbolt-Compatible/dp/B00C7RJQPY
Hopefully not the same quality.
That video and associated documentation shows how programming can be so alien to newcomers:https://developer.apple.com/videos/wwdc/2015/?id=408https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/Swift/Conceptual/Swift_Programming_Language/Protocols.htmlIt also leads people to the wrong impressions. There are only two types of programming: procedural and object-oriented. People like to split variations in how these two things are implemented into different...
These are the kind of videos that I think Apple should be highlighting too. Apple's gallery of slow-mo clips has been put together well but a few show a lack of effort of the part of the filmmaker. Just filming a dog lying on the ground for 5 seconds and having that featured is like celebrating mediocrity. They like to encourage people but you have to set the bar high enough or it won't feel like much of an achievement. Your music videos show a much higher quality standard...
They wouldn't release a 5W mat that could only charge a single iPhone. The ideal route would be a wireless brick that looked like the following and worked at up to 1 meter although the receivers should be compatible with standard wireless chargers like mats:http://store.apple.com/us/product/MJ262LL/A/apple-29w-usb-c-power-adapterThese would come with portable Macs and desktop Macs could have transmitters but the low powered bricks can be purchased separately for people who...
