The Rezence wireless charging only supports up to 50W at low distances of around 5cm but it's possible to do far more. Toyota is testing out wireless charging for cars with 3.3kW up to 20cm with 90% efficiency:http://witricity.com/products/wit-3300/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9_mpd1AIfkhttp://www.marketwatch.com/story/toyota-tests-wireless-charging-for-electric-cars-2014-02-18Here's a 60W bulb:It's the same with everything that was once wired - ethernet, mice,...
The fan would make a loud noise if it was running fast and you wouldn't feel much vibration. The hard drive has a solid platter spinning very quickly so you'd be able to feel it vibrating. You aren't using much space on it so I don't know why it would be spinning a lot. Hard drives have a rough average lifespan of 5 years. You're not 4 years in yet but with them being mechanical, they can wear out at any time. Given that you're only using ~67GB, you'd be much better off...
Thunderbolt 3 has so much capability that I think it will eliminate a few ports. I could actually see them just going with 2x TB3 ports with 3.5mm on the other side, maybe retain the SD slot. Skylake has a lot of wireless capability. Wireless power = no mag-safe and USB-C charging would be optional Wireless data = no real need for an SD slot, drives can connect wirelessly Wireless display = 4K wireless means people just wouldn't bother plugging a display in For the...
If you still have a hard drive, that could be causing a bottleneck. SSDs in the new 13" laptops are 1300MB/s reads, whereas older laptop drives were 30-50MB/s, the new MBP SSD is over 20x faster. Those numbers are for sequential reads, random reads are much lower. Separate audio tracks would be located in different parts of the drive so the mechanical read head in platter drives has to keep jumping back and forward, as well as for the OS and software. Some people here...
I use waypoints on maps too. Even for just a return journey because I don't like to plan the return route when I'm at the destination. It should be straightforward enough to add. Once you have set the start/end, just have a button to 'add waypoint' and have a vertical list that can reorder the position. If the waypoint goes beyond the start/destination then switch the start/destination to be waypoints and the waypoint to be the start/destination.
The recently updated 13" rMBPs got Broadwell and Force Touch so Skylake will be less of a jump than it will be for the 15", which stuck with Haswell. Intel is still aiming for 50% faster graphics though (this would also mean faster OpenCL). Skylake can optionally have DDR4 memory too, which is higher bandwidth. There's the move to USB C and Thunderbolt 3, which is more future-proof. There's also wireless charging, data and video. If Apple implements wireless charging, that...
The constructive route to take then would be to post your excitement in Mac threads, which you don't seem to be doing much of, rather than posting all the negatives in threads you don't care for. Stating a negative once or twice is enough for people to know how you feel.The Mac forums...
It looks like it's still doing box selections. It should help improve positioning the cursor initially but then it'll just do a single box upwards or downwards from there and it obscures the view with the keyboard still up. I'd rather it was done by having a button at the top of the keyboard like the scissor icon shown, which you'd tap and it would become like the shift-key in a persistent state. The keyboard would then slide down and single finger tap would select a word,...
If you make the same comments in multiple threads that have nothing to do with that topic then you are being a nuisance poster. You mentioned you were banned from Macrumors for doing this:http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/161575/going-out-with-a-bang-my-good-riddance-message-to-macrumorsThere's a saying about doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results. You usually get enough chances to change here (much to other people's frustration who would...
It'll be to cover every use case, people won't track all of the data. A lot of these ones will only be used by someone trying hard to get pregnant. Fitness people will enter different data. If someone recently had a skin cancer scare, they might choose to track UV exposure. If someone doesn't need to track the data, it stays empty. There's a whole range of things Apple can add, all kinds of bodily excretions have different colors and odors that give indications about...
