When Steve was around, it was Tim who went to these conferences:http://www.businessinsider.com/live-apple-coo-tim-cook-at-the-goldman-tech-conference-2010-2Jeff Williams is sort of in Tim Cook's position now:https://www.apple.com/pr/bios/jeff-williams.htmlhttp://www.edibleapple.com/2011/09/13/jeff-williams-tim-cook-successor/http://fortune.com/2011/09/13/jeff-williams-apples-other-operations-whiz-2/but he is SVP of operations whereas Tim Cook was Chief Operating Officer...
That wouldn't be very surprising if it were true but I highly doubt you're basing it on anything remotely factual unless you heard it from Tim Cook himself as very few sources will be aware of every single project they have going.Why is it a 'supposed utility' when it's proven this is the case? It's a good feature as it means code primarily written in Objective-C can include small amounts of Swift without rewriting the whole thing.
Powerpoint is like air to middle managers.I being a middle manager have only my slidesTread softly because you tread on my slides.
The complaints were just anecdotal evidence that nobody could verify as to how many were affected, how frequent the crashes were, how much any slowdown was. The article doesn't make any claims about stable software not being a requirement for large projects, it's just establishing that people are interested in using Swift on their projects. The apps mentioned in the article are probably very lightweight, not much more than websites. Leaving out details about unverifiable...
I'd guess:11" non-Retina Air $89912" Retina Air $109914"/15" Retina Air $129915" rMBP $1999The 13" Air and 13" rMBP would be replaced by the 14" or 15" Air.This means maintaining the low $899 entry price but with an upsell to a cheaper Retina laptop than before (cheapest Retina was 13" rMBP at $1299). The current 13" Air and 13" rMBP are around the same speed so just have the larger Retina Air at $1299. This makes Apple a little more competitive with 15" PC laptops, which...
Broadwell-h (quad-i7 for 15" MBP) has been delayed too much, it looks like Intel is going to Skylake:http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/12/08/did-intel-corporation-just-cancel-broadwell-h-and.aspxhttp://www.extremetech.com/computing/198783-fresh-details-leak-on-intel-skylake-chipsets-processorsI'd say the whole lineup will be refreshed in the 2nd half of the year. The Air, MBP and iMac will get Skylake with DDR4, PCIe4 and TB3. If Intel skips Broadwell EP then the...
Objective-C never changed during its first 5 years all the way back in the 80s before the internet? As to source incompatibility, they have an updater and it's better they do any major changes quickly after release.They get crash reports sent to them all the time, it's not a case of listening or not listening to general complaints about crashing.This article is just talking about major companies that have started using Swift. It sounds like you'd rather there was an...
You need 3rd party software to get music back off iOS devices e.g: http://thelittleappfactory.com/irip/ https://www.fadingred.com/senuti/ First of all, check if the music still exists on your Mac. Search for the track name or artist on one of the missing tracks in Spotlight. If it shows up, you might just have to set the music folder location again in iTunes preferences > advanced or drag the songs back into iTunes.
Why would a company like Apple be expected to switch a significant amount of important projects over in a short timeframe? They are hiring engineers for Swift:https://jobs.apple.com/us/search?#&ss=swift&lo=0*USA&pN=0Swift Performance Software Engineer"This open position is for engineers who want to work as part of the Swift team on optimizing the performance of the Swift compiler. This job involves working on the swift optimizer as well as working on improving LLVM, which...
That can justify them making anything - no sale vs 1 sale. People said this about the XServe and 17" MBP, it's leaving money on the table etc. But they've done it in the past and it wasn't a good business setup. Consumer demand changes their market direction.The 5% marketshare figure is misleading as the largest manufacturer has about 27% and their prices go below $400. This is the kind of thing people are...
