It needed to be higher for console quality games. GTA IV for example is 6.5GB for the XBox 360. 8GB would probably be a more sensible limit as that's closer to dual-layer DVD size. Not a single XBox 360 title listed here exceeds 8GB: http://www.stripesonfire.com/xbox-360-game-install-list/ A few of the more modern titles split across multiple discs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_console_games_spanning_multiple_discs#Xbox_360 Wolfenstein the New Order split...
It looks like it's one of those things women are into:http://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffbercovici/2014/06/24/still-more-data-shows-pinterest-passing-twitter-in-popularity/"Currently its audience in the U.S. is around 80% female, and a study by RJMetrics suggested that the gender gap is widening, with the percentage of pins by men falling from 13% to 8% over the course of three years."A woman here explains what they're doing with...
That was best-case for the iPhone 6 Plus. The older models tend to make up a small amount of sales. The 64GB iPhone 6 upgrade ($749) from the 16GB iPhone 6 would have pushed ASP higher too. That would make the ratio closer to 6:1, which when you put it in perspective of 74.5m iPhones, remove about 1/5th for low-end ones leaving 60m and 21.4m iPads where 50% are iPad minis, you get iPhone 6 Plus at 8.6m units and iPad mini at 10.7m units. So even with a weak update, the...
It's huge for a phone but tiny for a tablet:It's no good as an ebook reader or for typing on. iPads are laptop replacements, iPhones aren't.iPads are also cheaper off-contract. Off-contract iPhone 6 Plus is $749, iPad mini Retina is $299.The iPad mini makes up about half their iPad sales so dropping it would just drop their iPad sales volume further.The 6 Plus is just part of a phad that will pass in time. The 6 outsells it by about 4:1. If you look at the average selling...
There's two separate things being discussed. The article is mainly about the value of the $400 Pono player vs the iPhone. An iPhone can play lossless audio formats although there's some software limitations with the default players.The comparison to Android is not close. It would be more like the difference between using iOS on a Retina display vs a standard display.Apple has a document about audio compression...
It's mainly the sensors that would need to be improved. Ideally they'd be able to detect any kind of material on the road. There are scanners that can measure what materials things are made from, I don't know if they'd be able to work at a distance:http://www.optis-world.com/products/hardware/OMS4.htmlSome signals won't be able to bounce back so they'd have to rely on measuring incoming light. These scanners have been used on movies like Iron Man to match the physical suit...
It would also need to know if the mud posed a threat of collision. The bigger issue is getting all the data rather than interpreting it. If the sensors in the vehicle are designed to track things within a 1/4 mile radius then it would have some chance at detecting upcoming problems. Picking out important parts from that amount of data would be very difficult. Even at their primitive stage just now, they are processing 1GB of data per second.Not everyone listens to weather...
You just pulled that estimate out of your... never mind.Android Wear smartwatches start below $100 too so this doesn't look good as far as demand for this overall class of devices goes. The Canalys site says the Moto 360 was the clear leader:http://www.canalys.com/newsroom/over-720000-android-wear-devices-shipped-2014They say it was supply constrained. Between the Moto X phone and the 360, they are doing pretty well for design but buyers aren't noticing it. Lenovo owns...
How can it see a tornado? It could be a mile away. The car was looking for traffic signs on the construction site. A human driver could see weather conditions and know not to drive that way. Same with a mudslide, huge wave or even a deer/rabbit running from the side of the road. The automated car will focus on the events on the road not knowing about nor how to interpret off-road events.The depth of puddles would be very hard to determine by camera as they are flat. If it...
The tech on the car looks a bit more like the kind for driverless cars. The vehicles were apparently registered through a 3rd party company, not directly to Apple. If you look at Google's Street View car, it has a dome of cameras and the cameras are all at the same location so that you can get a 360 degree view: The Google Street View car also doesn't seem to have any rotating devices on it. Their driverless car...
