They must have forgotten that's why they copied them in the first place instead of designing their products uniquely like other manufacturers managed to do.
There's so many conflicting reports that it's clear the vast majority of it is made up. They had reports about 4.7" and 5.5" iPhones and now, true to form, there's a report about the larger phablet one being delayed:http://www.technobuffalo.com/2014/03/24/iphone-6-with-5-5-inch-display-facing-possible-delay-says-report/"according to UBS analyst Steve Milunovich, Appleā€™s phablet may not be announced alongside the 4.7-inch iteration later this year. Milunovich cited the...
There was an article suggesting Roku may be planning to go public:http://siliconangle.com/blog/2014/02/21/breaking-news-roku-preparing-to-go-public/"Roku has raised a total of $127 million in funding from investors."http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-02-21/roku-said-to-be-weighing-initial-public-offering-in-u-s-in-2014.html"Netflix planned to release its own box until CEO Reed Hastings decided to stay out of the hardware business. Wood created a separate company (Roku)...
Isn't this the CEO that likes to dress up in women's clothes? There's no evidence to prove it unfortunately but I assume it must be the case. iSuppli estimated the gross margins at 35%:https://technology.ihs.com/388826/isuppli-teardown-reveals-apple-tvs-inner-ipadSo that's some evidence vs no evidence. Hmmm, which to choose?
See the last post. Some cameras already use multiple sensors with single lenses. If they had to go with two lenses, they could have them so close as to be like a figure of 8 so I don't suppose it would be all that big of a deal. It might affect really closeup shots.Some advantages are described in the patent but luma data is where most of the detail is in an image so instead of diluting it through the color filter, you just allow a monochrome sensor to get as much detail...
Yeah, it's not easy to measure the same signal in two different ways. If they used a trichroic prism and a separate sensor per color component like some professional video cameras, they can get rid of the bayer filter and that reduces thickness as well as gets increased color quality, no mosaic patterns, and better light sensitivity but because the color and brightness processes use the same sensors, they're limited in how they can filter the incoming light to get the best...
Abusive PMs are against the forum rules, report them. There should be a flag icon on the PM.
While wearing glasses, you can either go the route of having transparent ones like Google Glass or opaque like Oculus. If they are opaque then you can't see where you're going without attaching dual cameras on the front and superimposing virtual reality on top so the idea of sharing real-world experiences with virtual users is hard. If the glasses are transparent, you end up with semi-transparent overlays of the virtual content as it projects onto one eye, which doesn't...
Keywords would be a good idea. I think they'd have to be linked though. So for example, someone could choose tags 'baking', 'cooking', 'flying'. However, flying on its own might bring up flight checkers so it would have to be linked to games so they'd need linked tags 'games'-'flying' and inverse tags for exclusion so 'games'-!'flying' (it would be inverted colors or something) would mean no flying games. If you didn't want to see kids games, you'd set 'games'-!'children'...
Here's the article without the pay wall: http://online.wsj.com/news/article_email/SB10001424052702303949704579461783150723874-lMyQjAxMTA0MDIwNTEyNDUyWj They mocked up the original iPhone using an old G3 to simulate the speed. This is also another example where Steve asked for innovative ideas from his staff. A lot of people have the notion that Steve himself came up with all the ideas but he acted as co-ordinator and overruled some of them. There are other examples of...
