It doesn't need to melt though. The structural strength just has to be affected by temperature. It doesn't look like Aluminium is affected much around 100 degrees Fahrenheit:There's adjustments for fatigue. If the phone is bent one way and another during the course of a day, that might weaken it. It's unusual for it to happen so soon after purchase though so it probably is just down to people wearing too tight clothing and sitting with it in their pockets.
Samsung has also just decided to stop selling laptops in Europe entirely now including Chromebooks:http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/23/6834755/samsung-to-end-laptop-sales-in-europeSamsung's Chromebooks were among the most popular Chromebooks. I suspect they will eventually drop their entire PC lineup worldwide because they don't need it.Apple's playing a shrewd game on the PC side because the PC manufacturers are all competing against each other cutting margins to...
This has happened with the iPhone 5/5s too: http://www.cultofmac.com/248603/iphone-5ses-are-bending-in-peoples-pockets/ The temperature in the pocket after long periods of time makes it easier to bend the metal, especially if the device has been running hot itself. This will be worse with the 6+ due to the size as there's more leverage at the weak points. Initial buyers are returning the 6+ for iPhone 6 models because they are finding them to be too big...
People would have to do this every day though when charging it. The passcode itself may be enough security, it's all that protects a bank card anyway, except the watch would be one code for all cards stored.If Macs get Apple Pay support, it wouldn't be necessary but otherwise, it's just convenient for the payment step. You wouldn't do the shopping on the watch, just the payment authorization.I don't think that would work. You could be out running or at the beach without a...
Oh, you have the early 2008 MBP that has no Mini-Displayport nor Thunderbolt but DVI output (far right).Doesn't the Viewsonic have the same DVI port on it, in which case, you'd just connect it with a DVI to DVI cable? What's the model of the Viewsonic so we know what ports are on it?
I agree with nuclear as a good option.http://www.euronuclear.org/info/encyclopedia/f/fuelcomparison.htm"With a complete combustion or fission, approx. 8 kWh of heat can be generated from 1 kg of coal, approx. 12 kWh from 1 kg of mineral oil and around 24,000,000 kWh from 1 kg of uranium-235. Related to one kilogram, uranium-235 contains two to three million times the energy equivalent of oil or coal."It's still a limited resource though. The following site has estimates...
I think if they pulled back at the end to show them both at least in one of them, that would have been better for people who don't know them. When the audience at the iPhone event was shown the dunn dunn dunn ad, they were clearly a bit confused and Tim asked if they knew who it was and that's when he revealed the names. In the one with the funnel cake, they could have pulled back to show Jimmy Fallon with cake all over him saying it was delicious. Even when I heard the...
It has wifi and bluetooth so you would just be sitting at a computer, the browser can ask you to pay via Apple Pay and you would do the same as you would at a store, just double tap the watch button or use your phone and you authorize the transaction. This would generally be an online store that doesn't have your card details already. This limits your risk when making payments online as you aren't putting card details out over the internet to potentially be stored on a...
Aperture is being discontinued. It's being replaced with Photos. Aperture users will migrate to Adobe's Lightroom or Photos if it has enough features.They are all suitable options really. The MBP, iMac and entry MP have very similar levels of CPU performance. The iMac and MP GPUs are faster than the MBP but close to each other.If you don't want to have to sync data a lot, the rMBP would be a good option. The latest ones are fast enough to do the job, especially with PCIe...
Being able to make payments without the phone nearby would be useful even though it's not unique to the Watch. The Watch is only supported in stores and not online, which makes me wonder if that's due to a lack of security on the Watch. The following page says the Watch is supported for payments when paired with a phone but it does say the Watch will have its own secure element to store codes:https://www.apple.com/apple-pay/It says that if the phone is stolen, you can wipe...
