To be fair, God has to be gay or female. No way the world would look and smell this nice if it was designed by a straight guy. Just go into any single straight guy's bathroom and take a deep breath.It highlights an important aspect of religion IMO, which is that you can make up your own interpretation as you go.
The word 'pride' comes across differently depending on how it's used:It is the opposite of shame but also used to symbolise achievement. Tim's comment could have been 'unashamed to be gay' but it's like when Apple uses 'thin' instead of 'thick'. 'Unashamed' negates a negative statement, 'proud' reinforces the positive opposite. So it's not really appropriate to say 'proud to not be gay' because there has never been any implied shame that needed to be negated with...
The Swift library of functions is written in Swift at least, I didn't see details of the Swift runtime/interpreter/compiler. I doubt they'd transition a whole OS over but it depends on the benefits. If there was a 10-20% performance hit but the code ended up being significantly smaller making up some of the performance loss and the rest with embedded C code, there's a possibility. Quite a lot of work if it was just for the sake of it. Even though it doesn't support C++, if...
They'll release the 4K/8K master equivalent versions as either downloads or on special multi-layer Blu-Ray. But, I'd like to see the special effects redone all over again and done well this time.That's ok, it just means that if you buy a disc, you should redeem the code within a reasonable time. The downloads themselves won't expire (although you have to login every 90 days). It helps prevent someone buying a used disc years later and using the code, their second-hand...
There's some survey numbers for marketshare here: http://www.cnet.com/news/apples-ipad-air-more-popular-than-ipad-mini-in-december/ The mini and Air came out roughly even at 41% each with the remainder going to the other large iPads. It's just the price point, if the larger Air could hit the same price point then everything can move down. I think the mini form factor is appealing though, it's much easier to handle for younger children and also for reading. I can...
It's supposed to but you'll need to make sure your router is setup ok: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT4907 This is why Apple adding a simple config VPN to the Airport would be nice as you'd just VPN into the router, which not only gives you secure, encrypted internet access remotely but it makes your remote devices look like local devices.
Daniel Day Lewis would be a good option: There's also Jake Gyllenhaal: Jim Caviezel: Keanu Reeves (not a great fit but he needs the work): Liam Neeson (why get Batman/Affleck when you can get the guy who taught Batman everything he knows): Not a lot of options really. Rogen as Woz, backup Jobs, 2016 release, script about 3 launch events, maybe they should just call it off.
The value is in the rarity. There were only 200 Apple 1 machines made vs over 50,000 NeXTstations. When there are so many, you are up against...
I'd guess they are targeting people who own both an Air and an iPad by trying to sell them a device that does the job of both worse than both and more expensive than both combined. I have a feeling it might not work out.Apple is also a brand that gets talked about a lot with consumers so any kind of link to that is going to get some awareness they wouldn't normally get. Any company can do it really, car manufacturers can compare their latest car to a Macbook Air and they'd...
Some of the results can be just as good. Adobe's one seems to get good results and has thousands of levels of pressure sensitivity:Having special tech in the display is better and would work in any app. The following tablet is $229 with a Wacom digitizer:The laminated display on the new iPad Air would be great for that as it will reduce the gap between the pen and the display surface. It might increase thickness to the device a bit and might wear out some special coatings...
