This kind of statement is to be expected. It's very hard for someone in Cook's position to feel comfortable saying they are perfectly happy with a white male dominated workforce by stating that the numbers align quite well with the population and interest in technology. If the numbers didn't align with the population then they'd be hiring more of a minority group than they should be.It is however perfectly ok to have a minority or female dominated group and publicise that...
If you plan to do a lot of gaming, be aware the OS takes up around 15GB. Windows 7 64-bit is a good choice to go with. Modern games top out at around 50GB per game so a 70GB partition would let you install pretty much any game. Most games are under 30GB so you'd get away with a 50GB partition but you'll miss out on some games that way.
That one has two dots at the top like the replica here:Any genuine front plate is going to have at most the proximity sensor and camera for dots and they'd be spaced evenly.
Referring to the companies as singular entities as though they each have a singular persona is the only way to be concise in discussions but this isn't how they operate. These are companies with many thousands of employees. The role of the employees is to maximize the chosen business model. Facebook and Google have the same business model. I wouldn't expect every decision made by each company's employees to be the same but if Google had bought Facebook, I'd assume they'd...
If you put it in target mode and boot the other machine holding the alt-key, can you boot from it?
Some tests show SSDs to be more reliable:http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-reliability-failure-rate,2923-5.htmlIt's hard to compare them accurately because SSDs can read/write data at 5-10x the speed so in a server environment, they'll be handling a higher workload. Plus some of the data available will include older drives where they were still figuring out how to make the drives reliable. OCZ had higher failure rates and they sold their SSD business to Toshiba.HDDs...
Write endurance is rarely the cause of failure in either one. An SSD can write petabytes of data. Mechanical parts are more prone to failure than solid state, which is why the Apple TV no longer has a hard drive in it.They operate at hard drive speeds for large sequential transfers. The SSD part of a Fusion drive is only 128GB so in a 1TB Fusion drive, 872GB of data is transferred at speeds no better than an HDD. There are still advantages with random writes but it's far...
The main concern people have is not about the lack of privacy but who to trust with what information. Like I said earlier, people have sensitive medical information they wouldn't tell their bank. They'll have financial information they wouldn't tell their doctor and so on. There are companies whose business model is to monetize data and those include Google and Facebook. Apple has a different business model - they charge more for hardware.About 90% of Apple's revenue is...
This has been happening on movie sets where they are previewing footage they've just shot to make sure it looks ok:https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/uk/products/blackmagicproductioncamera4k/technologyThey won't be huge files as they'll be short sequences at a time and they could well be on external SSDs but if they have to chop a rough edit, it could be putting strain on the internal.The main point is the performance aspect shouldn't be overlooked with SSD, it's not just a...
That's true, there are lots of companies with access to sensitive data. Internet service providers for people not using encrypted connections have even more access to info because every single piece of data has to pass through their servers before it even gets to Google - this might be the motivation in moving everything to SSL encryption. Banks have huge amounts of data too, all your purchase records. That always gets me when bank employees (especially ones that look like...
