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...
How much is it being bought for? You can sell things for any price you want. A competing seller is selling for $359 so an original iPhone is worth no more than that.It wouldn't be in the luxury market like most digital watches.Why don't they make a solid gold iPhone? That would sell better in the luxury market than an Apple Watch.
Broadwell-H, the CPU meant for the MBP was due in June but Skylake-H, the successor to it is on track for August/September. Intel hasn't spoken much about Broadwell-H at all and it looks like they're just going to skip over it.If they do, it would be great because you essentially get two processor upgrades together. It would be like that time Apple skipped a model and jumped to the i-series chips and it was about 2x performance jump. With Skylake, the integrated GPU can go...
That would have been a good route to go. While there's not much physical room to put more ports on one side without reducing the battery, they could have put a port on each side. They could perhaps have pushed the motherboard over to one side. Maybe that would unbalance the weight but it's not like there's much weight in it and the iPad does this. They should be pushing more for wireless headphones anyway. They could sell more wireless Beats this way.A USB-C connector for...
No, they're both Broadwell parts but the Core M manages the same CPU performance as the last Macbook Air:http://www.techspot.com/news/58029-early-intel-core-m-benchmarks-look-very-impressive.htmlThe Cinebench score, which uses all the CPU power was 2.48. The 2014 entry Air scores 2.57. The chip in the link is a slightly higher model Core M 5Y70 in the $1599 model but there's little difference between...
March 2014:http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/162571/rumor-apple-to-phase-out-last-non-retina-macbooks-with-cd-dvd-drive-this-year#post_2481805"I could see them scrapping the 11" and 13" Air for a single 12". If they make it a Retina model, that would be interesting but to maintain the price, I'd guess it will be a TN panel. I'd like to see it with a black bezel and laminated glass but that might add to the weight. 15" option would be good too.The 'Air' moniker is a bit...
Yes, when you buy the $10,000+ Watch, you are buying about $2000 of gold, which isn't at its peak value just now but quite high - the following is inflation-adjusted:http://www.macrotrends.net/1333/gold-and-silver-prices-100-year-historical-chartIt has been as low as 1/5th of what it is now and 65% higher in the last 100 years. If that repeats in the next 100 years, the value of the gold in the Apple Watch will be between $400-3300. This is the same deal with the gold in...
Homosexuality hasn't been produced by unnatural means, it's not man-made or artificial. Unattractiveness, infertility and so on can affect reproduction but nobody would say they are unnatural.To use the label 'defect' implies that the people with the 'defect' suffer because of it. The only suffering that people have is due to prejudice. Remove that and they live perfectly happy lives. What is defective about Tim Cook? By any measure, he comes across like one of the nicest...
Those prices look way off to me. Why would a leather band be $450 more than a standard buckle? Leather doesn't cost anywhere near that much. When the Watch was announced, I assumed the steel one would be the base model because it didn't have a specific demographic like the sport one but it has sapphire on it. Even so, I would assume a small premium on top of the sport model e.g:Sport - $349, ion-X glass, aluminiumSteel - $499-599, sapphire, stainless steelI doubt the...
