The problem lies with the overall light loss you're assuming. You are reaching the conclusion that introducing lenses and mirrors will bring about a cumulative net loss in light compared to the current setup. However, let's say the mirror introduced a 25% loss and the lenses and prisms a 10% loss of what goes into those (it shouldn't be anywhere near those losses), then you would get roughly 1/3 of the light lost leaving 2/3. However, you got rid of the Bayer filter, which...
The low price is attractive for casual gamers but that's not the console market. People wouldn't give up on the main consoles and PC gaming for a weaker but cheaper console with very few good titles, that's why the Wii U hasn't done very well. It would affect some Wii U sales but they still have their popular franchises that draw people to them. GTA V has sold over 45m copies and it's $60 and it's only available on 4 consoles (PS3, 360, PS4, XBox One), which makes it the...
That might not be such a good thing for developers initially because people will have libraries of iOS games that they'll expect to be updated for the TV and not buy again. Developers like to charge again for things like HD or iPad versions. They can perhaps add small in-app upgrades for controller support. Lack of backwards compatibility is not accidental on consoles, they deliberately cut backwards compatibility to drive sales of new titles, which is how new franchises...
There's a study here comparing T9/multitap, chorded and small QWERTY:http://www.cc.gatech.edu/fac/Thad.Starner/030_research.htm"Multitap and T9 are slow, averaging 8 to 20 words per minute (wpm) for experts""Twiddler (chorded) users averaged 47wpm. One user averaged 67wpm. We examine the potential use of multi-character chords (e.g. pressing the g and h keys for to produce "ing ") to increase text entry speed (Thad has bursted up to 130wpm on certain phrases while testing...
It's the global shutter that gets rid of the wobble or rolling shutter, not the prisms. CCDs usually have it but CMOS didn't. CCD wasn't suitable for phones or even cheaper cameras due to cost and power draw. Camera manufacturers likely found they could get 3 cheaper CCDs than a single large one and so split the colors onto 3 separate smaller CCDs to get similar performance to a large one. Apple should use global shutter CMOS sensors if they aren't already. FCPX corrects...
That's true, sometimes higher quality tests show a larger difference. There's another test here with 3DMark:The iPad Air 2 at 6:00 got 31k for the graphics score and the HD5000 on notebookcheck gets 65k:http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-5000.91978.0.htmlThat's last year's iPad though, they could double graphics speed in this year's iPad where Skylake vs Broadwell would only jump 20-30%. It's still OpenGL ES but the tests are designed to be comparable.The main...
They could link it up with the Watch so that you can do fitness plans in front of the TV while working to a set of exercises. Yoga etc. They bought PrimeSense and haven't used it yet:http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/07/11/apples-secret-plans-for-primesense-3d-tech-hinted-at-by-new-itseez3d-ipad-appThat can do body tracking like Kinect. They can have family games, quiz games, karaoke and casual games. It'll be able to play higher-end titles too, the developers just have...
I think it's time we threw it out for something newer. The following keyboard is only 47 years old:It's based on the idea of finger combinations, 5 fingers = 120 permutations but you can have more keys. 7-8 buttons will do the whole Chinese character set. They can be done like the alphabet so pressing the first button would be an index into a group of characters and then subsequent presses and releases would be surrounding characters.Press the thumb and first finger could...
That's another route they could go down is easy ways of funding things. They can have special Pay codes for charities and things that are approved by Apple. An organisation would apply to Apple like Breast Cancer Research and Apple would have a code that you enter into Pay and just press the scanner to make a donation and it goes right to the charity's bank and can't be scammed online because only codes/organisations approved by Apple would work. This could work for...
The graphics score of the A8X is higher too:http://gfxbench.com/result.jsp?benchmark=gfx30If you type ipad into the search and then 5300, you can see the scores between the Intel HD 5300 in the Macbook and last year's iPad. There were rumors that Apple tested ARM out in a laptop and given the single USB C port, this design looks like it was made for an ARM chip. They might have designed it, shown it to Intel and asked if they could build a chip to match so that they didn't...
