There's an image test here with the 6 Plus vs Canon 5D: http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2014/10/smartphone-camera-vs-dslr/2/ and here's a video test with the iPhone 6: Most of the difference comes from light sensitivity. Smartphones can reach high enough resolutions to compete with DSLR for sharpness. If the smartphone moves to a multi-lens setup then it will improve further, it can use multiple sensors and new sensor materials for improved sensitivity. Graphene was...
Selfie sticks help people who just can't get the right angle. Take this girl who spent ages trying to take the right shot: Selfie-takers get their comeuppance anyway: I don't think the WWDC rules will be for people taking selfies but people filming the stage including ones with DSLRs using a monopod to get above people's heads. Perhaps Apple could setup a main camera and let people stream this feed on their own site live. They like to edit things out though.
The aim of net neutrality is to get better services for consumers. Google, who backed it, says that's not a direct consequence of the rulings: http://9to5google.com/2015/04/14/google-fiber-expansion/ "Net Neutrality doesn’t move the needle for consumers, enabling competition is key "No consumers are seeing higher speeds than before the order was passed; no consumers are paying less for their Internet services than what they were paying for; no consumers are seeing...
The numbers aren't all that low. 66% own an iPhone so 11% would be 1 in 6 iPhone owners. It's an iPhone accessory that not everyone is going to want. Apple currently sells 40-75m iPhones per quarter, it'll probably top 200m this year so 1/6th of that would be about 30m watches in a year. Some expectations are 10-15m so 5% interest level would be in line with that. The interest level of tablets and smartphones is also telling. Note the 5% current ownership of...
Anandtech has an in-depth review:http://www.anandtech.com/show/9136/the-2015-macbook-review/9Under gaming and heavy benchmarking, they found the base temperature reached 43 degrees Celsius. Body temperature is 37. They say these temperatures would be uncomfortable to touch but shouldn't be a problem. The CPU is in the middle at the back so the hot spot is probably more isolated like in the iPads.
The following site lists a few more:http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Iris-Graphics-6100.125591.0.htmlYou can also check GPUs in the same class to give an idea of games not listed. It's roughly half the speed of what's in the 15" MBP (Iris Pro 6200 / 650m / 750M) so just cut the frame rates in half.
I'd say the squares represent the general watch style and the round ones the icons. They are laid out on a clock arrangement too. The WWDC site mentions Swift and Watch development.http://www.slashgear.com/for-scholarship-students-at-wwdc-swift-is-mandatory-14378923/There isn't a native Watch SDK yet so that'll probably be shown off.Epicenter could refer to earthquakes but as in the San Andreas Fault being a landmark like Yosemite. As mentioned earlier in the thread, it...
The teardowns say they're using a Samsung drive (as they usually do) that doesn't support NVMe:https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook+Pro+13-Inch+Retina+Display+Early+2015+Teardown/38300It must be down to its PCIe allocation. Some sites are saying it's now PCIe 3 x4 vs PCIe 2 x2 but that would mean 4x the bandwidth (up to 4GB/s) yet it doesn't benchmark that high. It only benchmarks similar to putting the Mac Pro SSD in a 2014 MBP where it just negotiated PCIe 2 x4,...
No, the Iris Pro performs very closely to the 750M anyway and is better for OpenCL:http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Iris-Pro-Graphics-5200.90965.0.htmlhttp://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-750M.90245.0.htmlThe main benefit you get with the dedicated GPU is 2GB of dedicated video memory vs 1GB of shared memory (it uses up to 1GB of the 16GB RAM) but 16GB is a decent amount of RAM and memory compression helps out. Integrated graphics have a much better history of...
One of the downsides if they opted to go the route of allowing softcore content is that people would make apps solely about it. A developer could make an app called Topless Girls and it would just be full of erotic images and they'd get inundated with these. I don't think that's where they want to go. So they should clarify in their rules the ratio of nude content allowed and that the nude content shouldn't be the focus of the app. People likely wouldn't subscribe to HBO...
