They really should have put a minimum of 2 USB ports on but USB C is a successor port to USB A, it's not like micro-USB. Manufacturers still using USB A are using an old standard. A dongle shouldn't be needed either, you will get cables to go direct from USB C to other USB formats like this:http://www.amazon.com/UCEC-Reversible-Design-Cable-Tablet/dp/B00TARBM2EA hard drive for example would use USB C to a mini- or micro-USB cable. The only case for a dongle would be USB...
Yes, they originally had Alta Vista, then went with Google:http://www.google.com/googlefriends/alert2_2000.html"We are also very pleased to announce that Google will now provide the default search service for Yahoo! Our search engine will now complement Yahoo's Web directory and navigational guide."but they switched to Bing in 2009:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/8174763.stm"Microsoft's Bing search engine will power the Yahoo website and Yahoo will in turn become the...
Siri is supposed to learn your own way of saying things but you can force some things. So you can make sure Siri knows that Anita is your wife by typing it: http://www.imore.com/how-edit-text-you-have-dictated-siri-iphone-and-ipad Just type in 'my wife is Anita' rather than saying it. Then ask Siri 'who is my wife?'. It will likely read it how it expects you to say it. Anita should be in your contacts to help too. This might help pick it up better in future but you can...
It has a few new design decisions but I think it will differ a lot from the 1st gen MBA. The original Air only had 2GB RAM, used a very slow 4200 RPM hard drive, had all the ports on a fold out drawer, had a low quality TN display and a slow, hot Core 2 Duo CPU.The starting point now is a CPU/GPU that matches Macbook Airs that people have worked with just fine but now runs with so low power that it won't generate enough heat by itself even at max load to require cooling, a...
He is the chosen one. The blood of the king flows through his veins. The throne now rightfully belongs to Prince Cook.So they'd be getting Yahoo almost for free. Yahoo's market cap is ~$39b, their stake in Alibaba is $30-40b. They buy Yahoo, sell off the Alibaba shares and they've got all of Yahoo's property for nothing. Not to mention, we'd get to see more of Marissa Meyer, maybe at the keynote, which is good for diversity and all that.Steve Jobs explained the TV problem...
They could put the magnetic part inline with the cable so that the connector is a standard USB-C that stays attached but the cable itself would break apart if there was too much force:It might not work quite as well as magsafe because the idea there is that it's hard to pull apart pulling directly outwards but a trip where it's pulled sideways is easier. With an inline method, they'd have to get the magnetic force just right to keep the cable in but low enough that a trip...
I think so, the weight would be beneficial for carrying around alongside heavy papers. It would have been nice if Apple made a larger 14"/15" model to be able to read documents more easily but at least it has a high resolution so you can get a large workspace and text will render more sharply so it will look more like printed documents.For situations where you need to get data from a colleague, you'd just need a USB-C to USB-A adaptor so you can plug in a USB pen. Apple...
That makes it difficult to prove where it is and it leaves it wide open for abuse. Take for example the following. After Bill Cosby had all those allegations come out, he said:"I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind."http://variety.com/2014/biz/news/bill-cosby-briefly-breaks-silence-expects-black-media-to-stay-neutral-1201379231/When the following black actress (who was 27...
Some people just have to color co-ordinate: Interesting choice of headphones. I think cases do cover this sort of thing but if it wouldn't cost Apple any more to add, it wouldn't do much harm. I think it would be best not being a dark pink but a very light pink - the kind that looks white with a small hint of pink. Force Touch would be a useful addition to the iPhone because it means no more press-hold to do text actions. It means browsers can differentiate between...
Kinetic energy produces very little power. Traditional watch power consumption is measured in micro-watts: http://www.pulsar-watches.co.uk/our-story/kinetic "In 1986, the engineers from SEIKO Watch Corporation succeeded in producing an IC with energy consumption of only 0.9 micro-watts of power, which was just 3% of that needed in the first quartz watch: the Astron." http://www.seiko-cleanenergy.com/watches/kinetic-1.html "To generate electricity from Kinetic energy...
