That's feedback you'd send to the people posting the article. Other forum members can't change it in future and some authors don't read the thread discussion so discussing it with other forum members doesn't help get the changes you want. It's better using the appropriate avenues for this. There's a contact page to send feedback directly:http://appleinsider.com/contact/A lot of these guidelines have already been in use and posts have been removed. Having the guidelines...
It never seems to affect the CPU though. CPUs get really hot, even more than a GPU at times and yet they hardly ever suffer problems like this. Not to mention there are many dedicated GPUs that haven't failed even after many years of use, it's just certain models.There were 12 million Apple laptops sold in 2011. Most of the sales are for Airs and 13" MBPs but say 25% are the 15" MBPs, that's potentially 3 million defective units. A $500 outlay for each from Apple would be...
It's not just once that it happens, there's been commentary on the use of the 'editorial' tag. That discussion doesn't need to go into the thread itself. There's a feedback section on the forum where each issue can be contained in its own thread. Readers in general want to read about the topic of the article since it's how they reach the discussion thread in the first place. Someone clicking on a promotion of some sort clicked it because they're interested in the...
The comedian that was mentioned earlier who had a play banned has been arrested in France for a single Facebook post now and he could get up to 7 years in prison if he's found guilty: http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2015/01/14/377201227/controversial-french-comedian-arrested-over-facebook-post-on-paris-attacks http://edition.cnn.com/videos/world/2015/01/15/erin-pkg-marquez-comedian-dieudonne-arrested.cnn "Dieudonne's alleged crime: writing "Je suis Charlie Coulibaly"...
They should never create a single point of failure for hundreds of millions of people. The devices can easily be placed in close proximity so that data can be synced directly from one device to another. But the very idea that the data can be read and written externally is contrary to the whole point of the secure enclave. The data should go from the button to the enclave and that's it with no software reading it or writing it. It might be a pain to keep setting it up but...
You don't really get any indicators one way or the other but it doesn't have to be a runaway success in volume to be a better sales strategy. It encouraged some people who don't care about performance to buy the new one and possibly improved margins on those sales. I know someone who was waiting for the Mini, saw it was downgraded and just gave up and bought a MBP instead and wished they'd done it sooner because it was everything they wanted in a Mini - quad-i7 and fast...
There was speculation it was for backwards compatibility with the XBox. The original XBox was x86 but the 360 moved to PPC so no original XBox games would run (they're back to x86 again with the latest models). They used emulation in order to get the games to run but they only made some games work and each had an emulation profile:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360#How_compatibility_is_achievedThe XBox 360 developer kits were G5 Macs...
Possibly, Samsung seems to want to move from Android and Tizen has no support yet. Blackberry's QNX at least has over 100k apps already. Blackberry is really in trouble. They had a $4.4b loss in Q3 2014. It's been all losses last year:http://us.blackberry.com/content/dam/bbCompany/Desktop/Global/PDF/Investors/Documents/2015/IR_Supplement_Q3_FY15_12182014.pdfThey still have $3b assets after liabilities so they can hold out a while longer as long as they don't have crazy...
That's another point, in the transition between PPC and x86, Apple didn't make either of the hardware chips so they had to use software binary translation in the form of Rosetta. With them building the ARM chips, potentially they could implement some sort of hardware translation layer that lets x86 instructions run on the ARM chip without the performance hit of Rosetta. This might not cover Windows compatibility but it should cover x86 Mac software and if the chips are...
There's no reason they can't have both ARM and x86 laptops/desktops. The people who run Windows or VMs can continue to buy the more expensive models. There will be people who only use the Mac for: Webcam, email, Safari/Facebook/Twitter, Word, Garageband, iTunes, xCode or web coding, movies & Netflix, Photos, syncing and backing up iPad and iPhone, basic or no games, no Thunderbolt, no Windows. For those people, x86 actually doesn't make sense because they are paying more...
