There was speculation it was for backwards compatibility with the XBox. The original XBox was x86 but the 360 moved to PPC so no original XBox games would run (they're back to x86 again with the latest models). They used emulation in order to get the games to run but they only made some games work and each had an emulation profile:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360#How_compatibility_is_achievedThe XBox 360 developer kits were G5 Macs...
Possibly, Samsung seems to want to move from Android and Tizen has no support yet. Blackberry's QNX at least has over 100k apps already. Blackberry is really in trouble. They had a $4.4b loss in Q3 2014. It's been all losses last year:http://us.blackberry.com/content/dam/bbCompany/Desktop/Global/PDF/Investors/Documents/2015/IR_Supplement_Q3_FY15_12182014.pdfThey still have $3b assets after liabilities so they can hold out a while longer as long as they don't have crazy...
That's another point, in the transition between PPC and x86, Apple didn't make either of the hardware chips so they had to use software binary translation in the form of Rosetta. With them building the ARM chips, potentially they could implement some sort of hardware translation layer that lets x86 instructions run on the ARM chip without the performance hit of Rosetta. This might not cover Windows compatibility but it should cover x86 Mac software and if the chips are...
There's no reason they can't have both ARM and x86 laptops/desktops. The people who run Windows or VMs can continue to buy the more expensive models. There will be people who only use the Mac for: Webcam, email, Safari/Facebook/Twitter, Word, Garageband, iTunes, xCode or web coding, movies & Netflix, Photos, syncing and backing up iPad and iPhone, basic or no games, no Thunderbolt, no Windows. For those people, x86 actually doesn't make sense because they are paying more...
It seems to be a software problem though, not a cable problem:https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5766672http://www.itcentralpoint.com/dell-u2713-full-resolution-problems-on-osx-mavericks"It seems the EDID (Extended Display Identification Data) in Mavericks was not right for my new monitor (I also read this solves the problem for other Dell Models U2711 & U2713H). Fortunately, from this link (I also made a mirror here just in case) I could download a ZIP file which...
It seems to be the opposite but it will vary in certain circumstances:http://thehumanist.com/news/national/why-are-the-poor-more-religioushttp://www.gallup.com/poll/142727/religiosity-highest-world-poorest-nations.aspxReligion is a space filler. When science has no answers, religion makes them up. When people have no possessions, religion offers them hope of prosperity or charity, worst case in the after-life e.g 'the meek will inherit the earth', 'it is easier for a camel...
Of course not, it's a technology patent. He's pushing a message into her inbox.Sometimes there's issues that are genuine problems and we should work to fix them but it's rare these days and the problem is they latch onto the wrong angle on what the issue is or they choose issues that aren't feasible to correct and label them as purposeful discrimination when they aren't.In the Ubisoft example, they made an Assassin's Creed game with a female lead and you can't choose a...
It's tricky whenever you make a representation of a woman because people complain no matter what you do. If you try not to make them look attractive, you make them look like guys; if you try to make it obvious they're women (breast size, skirts, curves, long hair, long legs, makeup, big lips, eyelashes, big eyes), they look sexualized and you get accused of objectifying women. Here's a patent with a woman in it:https://www.google.com/patents/US6944883 They've clearly gone...
The women are on the other end of the web chat they have going:They just can't show that because of political correctness these days.
This happened with the Mini already though. They had quad-cores and could have had Iris Pro and then they dropped back to ULT dual-core chips.Only Apple knows the buyer demographics and what their sales growth plan is. If people are genuinely committed to investing in the Mac eco-system then at worst, they will delay a purchase.They don't want to sell a $999 laptop to people who want MBP performance, they want to sell a $1999 laptop to them because those buyers appreciate...
