The Swatch Groups owns multiple Swiss brands including Tissot and Omega and their financials are here:http://www.swatchgroup.com/en/investor_relations/annual_and_half_year_reports/annual_report_2013Combined income is ~$9b with ~23% net profit margin (close to Apple's net margin). The whole Swiss market is around $54b so Swatch represents a large portion. I didn't know Seiko was the same company as Epson who make the printers. Their financials are here but it looks like...
Here's an article that highlights the uselessness of internet surveys: http://www.theverge.com/2014/11/3/7151789/christian-bale-cant-play-steve-jobs-here-are-8-people-who-can You might think that the black and female actors suggested to play Steve Jobs are in there for a joke but the real joke is the poll results. Out of over 16,000 votes, Kanye West was the favorite. More than 1100 picked Meryl Streep.
The gold one looks the nicest IMO but not $5k nice. If the value of the parts its made from is around that value then as long as the materials retain that, so would the overall watch and someone would buy it worst case just to melt it down. But, a price like that means a very limited audience. The same can be said of other watches, why spend $6.5k on this stainless steel...
I think those graphics look really bad, like clipart. Surely Apple could get someone to design really cool looking emoji like this idea:Microsoft did their ones as vectors vs png, which helps with scaling:http://opentype.info/blog/2013/07/03/color-emoji-in-windows-8-1-the-future-of-color-fonts/This limits what you can draw but it's not such a big deal with emoji. Microsoft's set looks bad too.I also think something needs to be done about...
Lenovo owns Motorola now too, the deal closed this week:http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/hello-moto-the-true-story-behind-lenovo-s-biggest-buy-1249796http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/10/30/us-lenovo-motorola-idUSKBN0IJ10M20141030They will keep the branding so buying a Moto X or the 360 watch will actually be boosting Lenovo's revenue. They are expanding by playing the low margin game. Net margin for them is 2%.They'll undercut Dell...
This is a pretty smart way to do it as it means no new icons are needed, just a font option like a font color that would already exist.
I had Fassbender in my list of random actors with beards, I mean my carefully chosen list of appropriate actors to play the part, but took him out on account of the beard being ginger: I suppose they could just dye it. It's the Irish accent too though: That's why I took Hugh Jackman out because his Australian accent is too strong (I like his beard though).
I should have checked if they'd done it first. A company has done a 4K scan at 16-bit this year:https://www.avforums.com/news/original-star-wars-trilogy-in-4k.10513The original trilogy was done on film so should have a resolution around 4K or maybe a bit higher so scanning the film will work ok. Some scenes in the prequels were shot digitally, possibly 2K so they might not be scaled up, nobody cares about those anyway. This rescan would be the original version, not the...
Did he go through your router settings too? Check your router admin page to see if there's a firewall on it. If you go to the network panel on the Mac, the router page should be at the address listed in the selected network > advanced > TCP/IP under router. Put that into a browser when you're on the network and it will give you the router settings. You'll need the login, which will either come with the router or be set as a default login for the router model. You can setup...
To be fair, God has to be gay or female. No way the world would look and smell this nice if it was designed by a straight guy. Just go into any single straight guy's bathroom and take a deep breath.It highlights an important aspect of religion IMO, which is that you can make up your own interpretation as you go.
