Yes, Apple gets how it should be done:http://www.freepatentsonline.com/20120303980.pdfhttp://www.techradar.com/news/world-of-tech/apple-files-patent-for-magnetic-wireless-charging-no-contact-required-1117194They described distances around 1 meter. The mat setup Intel demonstrated is fine too though and would let people charge in multiple locations and countries without taking the charger(s).A wireless charging block or mat that can charge a Macbook can charge an iPhone,...
The following roadmap suggests it'll be at least 2017 before E5-2600 v5 Skylake:http://www.theplatform.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/intel-kdm-roadmap-1.jpghttp://www.kitguru.net/components/cpu/anton-shilov/intels-28-core-xeon-skylake-cpus-to-support-6tb-of-dram-use-3467-pin-socket/I think they'll figure out a way to support Retina displays with Broadwell. They don't have much spare PCIe bandwidth but if they make a 21:9 5K TB display, that will work fine over the...
In this one he repeats the word a lot but also splits the word up:http://genius.com/Pharrell-williams-freedom-lyrics"Your first name is FreeLast name is DomYour first name is KingLast name is Dom"Dom is pronounced dumb i.e 'Your last name is dumb'. I'm guessing he wrote the lyrics, he seems to write a lot of songs:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Songs_written_by_Pharrell_WilliamsHe does adjust how he repeats the word 'freedom', he screams it the first 3 times in the...
Safari has its share of vulnerabilities too, quite a few allowing arbitrary code execution:https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/search-results?adv_search=true&cves=on&query=safari&cve_id=When you narrow it down to highly critical ones though, Flash is worse:https://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/search-results?adv_search=true&cves=on&query=safari&cvss_sev_base=HIGH&cve_id=Just 3 very high ones for Safari in the last 3 years but pages and pages of them for the Flash...
It depends on how they are paid. It's unlikely that people would buy albums and a popular artist might have 1-3 popular songs per year so at most each person would pay $3 for the whole year to that one artist. With a $10/m subscription, they are pulling in $120 per year, which is enough to cover payments to 40 popular artists. Eddy Cue said iTunes has sold 35 billion songs with around 10 billion between...
They have under 35% gross margins on Macs so they can't cut the prices in half. Over their whole product range, they have net margins of around 25%. They have higher margins on the more expensive models but at most they can take off about 10-15% and this wouldn't expand marketshare enough to offset the loss in profit. PC competitors are working with single digit net margin, some as low as 2%. The only way they survive is on unit volume and cheap parts. If unit volume falls...
Radio was never delivered in an on-demand way so you had to wait until the song you liked came up, hope the reception was good and that none of the radio presenters spoke over the music, then make sure to hook the cassette tape up and hit record and stop at the right time. Digital on-demand streaming differs in that you can select the track you want to hear at any time, you don't need to worry about quality nor someone speaking over the track. The way streaming is setup...
They also use higher priced components. Apple charges $300 to move to 512GB from 256GB SSD and they use boards with the same components as the following:http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SM951-256GB-AHCI-MZHPV256HDGL-00000/dp/B00VELD92Uhttp://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SM951-512GB-AHCI-MZHPV512HDGL-00000/dp/B00VELDBJ6$458 for 512GB. $227 for 256GB. The upgrade by deducting the 256GB and adding 512GB going by the retail price would be $231 so Apple's $300 isn't too bad.The much...
Disk Utility in /Applications/Utilities can run a basic scan for drive faults but this would just be software-related. Hardware faults rarely show up in these programs. If hardware freezes, all the software running freezes up on it too so it doesn't see anything wrong. You can test doing large file copies of a few gigabytes and see if it locks up during this.You can monitor temperatures with software like the...
It's more useful as a supplementary input rather than primary. Your arms/hands would get tired holding them up for long periods:The LEAP demo shows how it can be used for some games. It would be able to detect objects like when you are holding a pen to be able to do accurate palm rejection. It can support gestures for multi-tasking, split view, zoom/rotate/pan. It can precache website links that you are about to touch, it can type ahead keys you are about to press. It can...
