There are cheaper options, here's a TB2 enclosure that you can put your own drives in:http://www.amazon.com/Akitio-Thunder2-Quad-enclosure-Thunderbolt/dp/B00LMON6Z4Put in 4x 4TB and it will cost about $150x4 + $359 = $959 for 16TB or $1918 for 32TB with two of them. You'd only save $718 using bare drives internally and that's if you don't pay for extra RAID cards or power supplies.External options give you unlimited expansion. If you run out of storage, just add another...
The Quicktime inspector will show the video and audio formats. Check if they are something unusual. Sometimes you'll need to convert the files to get them to play well with editing software. Apple doesn't like legacy media formats much. They like things to be ProRes or H.264. Audio is fairly easy to re-encode, especially in Quicktime Pro, not Quicktime X. You can open the video and just save sound as aiff, paste it back in (add to movie but don't scale it) and save as...
For mass storage, you'd use a mass storage device like:http://www.apple.com/shop/product/HE155VC/B/promise-pegasus2-r8-32tb-8-by-4tb-thunderbolt-2-raid-systemThis can reach 1GB/s speed. There are cheaper options. It has a few advantages over internal storage. You can swap out the drives more easily, you can share the storage with other computers and it makes it easier to upgrade the main hardware. You don't have to buy another machine, replicate the storage and then copy...
You can say the same about the other iPads though. The entry level models are not much more expensive than the mini. Why would say a $75 net profit be much better than $50 if you lose 1/3-1/2 of the unit volume? The iPad ASP is $415 so a significant number sold are $399 or under. If you make the entry level $399 then will people automatically move from the $299 tier to $399 or just migrate to a $99-299 Android tablet or upgrade even less often? Tablets are lower importance...
That probably comes from the assumption that Apple would already have an efficient hiring process in place and are not discriminating against women or minorities. If that assumption were true then if the numbers are too low, the conclusion would be that the applicants haven't made it through the process and the resolution to that would be to lower the bar for them. This has been done in other professions. In the fire services, they recognized that they had too few women...
Do you mean you wanted to duplicate a column of folders onto a remote computer but empty? There are a few options for copying folders here but all involving code or the terminal:http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/76756/copy-folder-structure-without-copying-filesIf the contents of the folders aren't too large, you can duplicate the list somewhere then use Spotlight to find any files inside (making sure to limit the search to the duplicates) and move those to trash, then you'd...
If the folders are not in a hierarchy, you can open a new file in TextEdit, use Format menu > make plain text and just drag the list of folders in. You can then do either a find/replace to remove the first parts of the pathnames and slashes or hold the alt-key before clicking to select and do a vertical selection and delete that selection.If the folders are in a hierarchy, you can use the terminal:find *drag folder in* -type dIf you want to save the output to a file, you...
It would retain the benefit of not needing to be refreshed like DRAM:Difference between static RAM and dynamic RAMand it would save space. If the overall performance was enough, it could be a good fit for wearables. They aren't playing games or anything like that and the screen resolution is low. They might have a small video memory cache on top but store the bulk of the data in the XPoint memory and this replaces both the 512MB (4Gb) of RAM and the 8GB of NAND.The...
The Watch version of San Francisco was originally called that and some people took that font off the watch and put it on the iPhone/iPad and Mac to see how it would look. Apple made variations to it for iOS and OS X with rounder edges and that version is now called San Francisco and the Watch version with flat sides is called San Francisco Compact:http://codemotionapps.com/san-francisco-display-vs-text-compact-vs-normal-a-brief-review/I didn't like the flatter sides on the...
The speed they referred to was latency not bandwidth:It's 1000x faster at getting data than NAND (latency in milliseconds/microseconds) but slower than DRAM (latency in nanoseconds). They don't say what the bandwidth capability is but probably also somewhere between Flash at ~2-3GB/s for newer Flash drives and 30-60GB/s for DDR3/DDR4 RAM. The Mac Pro's D700 has 264GB/s of memory bandwidth. NVidia's Pascal is supposed to deliver 1TB/s using 3D stacked memory.Having 10x the...
