I believe it's pronounced 'Android Where'. It's a competition to see if you can spot anyone actually using Android devices to backup their activation numbers. You win a watch if you can spot anyone.
People say that it's like an iPad as though that's somehow a bad thing. The iPads get the highest customer satisfaction ratings among all Apple's products - 98-100%. If you were to buy a 128GB iPad, it would be $699. Apple charges $200 to move from 128GB to 256GB on the Macs so a 256GB Air would be $899. The Macbook is $1299. The Macbook has 8GB RAM vs 2GB on the Air. If you assume RAM costs $10/GB, that's easily $100 Apple retail pricing so an equivalent Air would be...
In China, Tim Cook said 80% but AT&T says only 15%:http://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052702304049904579516103768847882"AT&T Inc., which reports first-quarter results Tuesday, sold 15% of its smartphones without a subsidy in the fourth quarter."It also doesn't mean they have to be paying it upfront, they can be using a monthly payment plan separate from their carrier contract.
There would be thousands of bad ones but also dozens of nice ones and they can be curated:There's a whole load of these:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBWsYPGhkDAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NISbK89kpIEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eu-IzJTUmohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSkPZNlGaeAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FW9sTRjNTwhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPt3bwur9TwWoz can even have virtual nixie tubes:or the original Apple Watch: For added effect, they can have...
Companies could make promotional faces like have a countdown to a particular event e.g a Batman v Superman face with a timer until the launch and when the timer is done, the face can link to places to go see the movie. Charities can have watch faces that people enable for a given day like Breast Cancer Awareness and they can even have codes on them for other people to donate, which they might do via ´ú┐Pay and they can get some kind of reward for getting donations. For teen...
Subsidies/monthly payments make the standalone price of the phones less important. It looks like a lot of effort has gone into the watch faces but the end result is the 9 faces shown here:https://www.apple.com/watch/timekeeping/vs over 5,000 on other smartwatches:http://androidwatchface.com/faces?showorder=4&page=1The thousands aren't nearly as polished but they give people the ability to adjust the face to their own personal style or even mood. The Mickey Mouse face is...
There's another video here: It looks like gold when they take it out the box because of the table.
The Verge was founded by some editors from Engadget who seemed quite pro-Apple. They left because AOL bought it out and was pushing for content to be made more profitable:http://www.theguardian.com/technology/blog/2011/mar/13/engadget-editors-leavingSo if they could sell ads for Microsoft Surface, they might put up an article about it. Some of those people left The Verge but I don't think for the same reasons. It's getting harder to tell what articles are intended for...
That statement comes without any input from the workers. What is likely is that they consider it to be a lesser of two evils - being destitute vs overworked. One of the links above gives input from an undercover worker:"Another reporter, whose longest shift was 16 hours, said: "Every time I got back to the dormitories, I wouldn't want to move."Even if I was hungry I wouldn't want to get up to eat. I just wanted to lie down and rest. I was unable to sleep at night because...
The debate about Foxconn's evilness has nothing to do with literacy, which is someone's ability to read and write. Everybody can only base their viewpoints on reports that come from news sources or their own first-hand accounts. The only accurate opinions would be from people who have either worked there or visited there but as Mike Daisy demonstrated, people can lie about that. There are two reports here and the BBC one has a...
