There's an app called Pacifist that will bypass the OS X installer: https://www.charlessoft.com Just select the installer using that app and it will move the files to the appropriate locations bypassing the checks that block the installation.
I don't think they'll have TB dongles for TB2, they'd just have TB3 to TB2 cables. The cable ends have controller chips in them. A small adaptor would probably be cheaper but they might not be able to do the conversion in a small passive adaptor. With the cable, the controller can convert the signal and send down the right signal to the TB2 chip on the other end.For USB A, the current Macbook adaptors would work ok with TB3.I also don't think they'll have ethernet ports...
There's been a strong effort in the media over recent years to raise awareness of the different ways genders, races and sexualities are treated. A lot of it comes across as accusatory. Pay inequality is an issue that's raised quite a lot and it's presented as though certain groups have imposed this on others and they or the government need to fix it. If people negotiate lower pay or choose lower paying job roles then the solution lies with them and so the issue doesn't...
Google did a survey asking women about tech:http://static.googleusercontent.com/media/www.wenca.cn/en/us/edu/pdf/women-who-choose-what-really.pdfWomen who were not familiar with computer science described it primarily as "boring", "difficult" and "nerdy". These words were also used by women familiar with it but other more positive terms came higher up like "fun", "interesting".This will be why Tim alludes to not communicating well enough about it being fun to work in tech...
The Rezence wireless charging only supports up to 50W at low distances of around 5cm but it's possible to do far more. Toyota is testing out wireless charging for cars with 3.3kW up to 20cm with 90% efficiency:http://witricity.com/products/wit-3300/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9_mpd1AIfkhttp://www.marketwatch.com/story/toyota-tests-wireless-charging-for-electric-cars-2014-02-18Here's a 60W bulb:It's the same with everything that was once wired - ethernet, mice,...
The fan would make a loud noise if it was running fast and you wouldn't feel much vibration. The hard drive has a solid platter spinning very quickly so you'd be able to feel it vibrating. You aren't using much space on it so I don't know why it would be spinning a lot. Hard drives have a rough average lifespan of 5 years. You're not 4 years in yet but with them being mechanical, they can wear out at any time. Given that you're only using ~67GB, you'd be much better off...
Thunderbolt 3 has so much capability that I think it will eliminate a few ports. I could actually see them just going with 2x TB3 ports with 3.5mm on the other side, maybe retain the SD slot. Skylake has a lot of wireless capability. Wireless power = no mag-safe and USB-C charging would be optional Wireless data = no real need for an SD slot, drives can connect wirelessly Wireless display = 4K wireless means people just wouldn't bother plugging a display in For the...
If you still have a hard drive, that could be causing a bottleneck. SSDs in the new 13" laptops are 1300MB/s reads, whereas older laptop drives were 30-50MB/s, the new MBP SSD is over 20x faster. Those numbers are for sequential reads, random reads are much lower. Separate audio tracks would be located in different parts of the drive so the mechanical read head in platter drives has to keep jumping back and forward, as well as for the OS and software. Some people here...
I use waypoints on maps too. Even for just a return journey because I don't like to plan the return route when I'm at the destination. It should be straightforward enough to add. Once you have set the start/end, just have a button to 'add waypoint' and have a vertical list that can reorder the position. If the waypoint goes beyond the start/destination then switch the start/destination to be waypoints and the waypoint to be the start/destination.
The recently updated 13" rMBPs got Broadwell and Force Touch so Skylake will be less of a jump than it will be for the 15", which stuck with Haswell. Intel is still aiming for 50% faster graphics though (this would also mean faster OpenCL). Skylake can optionally have DDR4 memory too, which is higher bandwidth. There's the move to USB C and Thunderbolt 3, which is more future-proof. There's also wireless charging, data and video. If Apple implements wireless charging, that...
