It looks like Nintendo is happy using Apple hardware already:The SDK they use will come into it, it sounds like they want as many platforms as possible, including the PC (possibly Mac). They've ruled out classic game ports, the upcoming titles will all be new. There's another piece of hardware called NX, which they're going to talk more about next year.http://www.wired.com/2015/03/nintendo-dena-mobile/They were talking about the differences in controls and they'd want to...
Nintendo could make a controller for iOS. I expect it would appeal most to iPad users but would work for any iOS device hooked up to a TV. They sell these for $50 for the Wii U so do the same for iOS, just customise the same controller to get MFi certification. The active iPad userbase is well over 100 million users. The Wii U has sold about 9.2m units in 3 years and is only adding 1-2m units per year now. Controller and software sales would be more profitable than the Wii...
The multi-platform idea sounds better but titles made especially for mobile are generally poor. They design the games for limited interaction. Eidos/Square did this with Deus Ex:http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/deus-ex-the-fallThey could have easily ported over Human Revolution:http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/deus-ex-human-revolutionNintendo will want to protect their hardware sales, which make up 60% of their revenue so they won't port those platform exclusives over....
Called it: http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/156595/thuraya-satsleeve-turns-apples-iphone-into-a-satellite-phone#post_2298378 Latency can affect internet usage but it depends on which distance they go with. High orbit geostationary satellites take 540 milliseconds. The benefit is they can cover more users with fewer satellites. SpaceX plans to use distances of 750 miles: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-01-17/elon-musk-and-spacex-plan-a-space-internet That...
It can drive a 4K display, Apple's Macbook spec page lists 4K support, just not 5K yet but neither can Thunderbolt yet. The above question about Lightning is that Lightning is the port on the iPhone. It sometimes gets mixed up with Thunderbolt and they must have named them to fit together - Thunderbolt and Lightning - but they are completely different ports.An upcoming Macbook Pro wouldn't necessarily need Thunderbolt on top if they use 10Gbps USB C ports but they aren't...
I didn't use those examples. I used examples of cars Jony Ive and Steve Jobs owned themselves. Why wouldn't they design a car like the cars they owned and drove? Mercedes SL, Aston Martin Vanquish, Porsche. Tim Cook drives a BMW and he used to own a Porsche...
Pandering to male insecurity is timeless even for boring cars:The problem is they keep making new men and these men reach an age when they have to attract women and there's no training on how to do that. Women don't say what it is they want so men just have to try and judge their vague reactions to things by trial and error. If you skip to 1:35, I'd say that reaction is quite conclusive:If you up the age though, you get a different reaction, you can't please everybody:
... and villains. People who revel in seeing Apple being torn down or just want a sensationalistic story want Steve to be portrayed as a villain. One reason is that if you make Steve the linchpin of the whole company and he's a hero then it's a great foundation that the company is built on. If he is portrayed as being a villain or even just a fraud like the Mother Teresa example then it undermines everything Apple is built on. Steve's individual characteristics aren't all...
Yeah, people are led to believe that her gaunt appearance is due to her selfless commitment to charity in poverty-stricken parts of the world when, according to a new documentary, it was really down to her addiction to bath salts. Crazy junkie.What's important when you have an abbreviated means of conveying an impression of someone's entire life is that you convey the right message overall. If someones sleeps 8 hours a day their entire life and a film maker focuses on the...
But what caused the damaged ego? Driving around in a Fiat.There's aerodynamics to think about. You can't punch a hole in space-time with something that looks like a bus.Modern high-end supercars project a sense of seduction, determination, efficiency and class all while staying within the same speed limits as the octogenarian-oriented vehicles.As for penetration, Fiat's trying to get in on this too, they have a special sporty model:They'd be just as well designing them all...
