He wants a Macbook Pro at the price of a Macbook Air with the performance of a Mac Pro.
It's like Slurpy pointed out earlier, 1.6 billion Muslims shouldn't have to apologise or weigh in on the actions of extremists who don't represent them. If someone of any grouping (ethnicity, religion, sexuality) commits an atrocity, people use word association to link the atrocity to that grouping, especially if it happens frequently but the assumptions made for the link have to be justified. If someone kills wrongly in the name of a country, should the people of that...
There was a survey done here that suggested the bottom 80% of apps make 3% of the revenue:http://daveaddey.com/?p=893These are not accurate graphs as they are just random samplings of developers who have apps in the store but all the reports say roughly the same thing. The following article says 2/3 of all apps aren't downloaded at all, which would explain the low revenue...
"If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in...
They made $6b in accessory sales in 2014, which should include about 8-10m $99 Apple TVs and a bunch of $99-199 Airport routers. Say it's $4b for the $999 displays, that's about 4m units between 18.9m Macs. I'd expect them to make up a good portion of the sales considering 75% of all Mac sales are laptops and most are Airs.None of the ports would work on the display.One possibility is that they are making an entry-level Retina model based on ARM to take on Chromebooks that...
The efficiency of inductive power is reported as being 70-85%. If they have a 7.5W chip and smaller battery as a result, it'll still take less overall power to charge and they won't need to have a fixed size port on the outside.
It seems to be a little more widely distributed than that but this is older data:http://www.canalys.com/newsroom/top-25-us-developers-account-half-app-revenueThe companies that make Clash of Clans and Candy Crush make $1-2b per year each (also from Android) so just under 1/5th of all the revenue goes to 2 developers.One thing that's quite interesting is Japan outspends the US in the App Store despite being less than half the...
It wouldn't be fully compatible with the Thunderbolt display and no target mode. The Air is their biggest selling machine, I imagine they'd want to maintain that functionality.USB C is 2.6mm tall, type A is 4.5mm, Thunderbolt is 4.5mm so it gives them more freedom to shrink things going type C only but I reckon Magsafe can go at the back on the left and TB and audio jack on the right and then taper it sharply with two USB C on the left and SD slot on the right.The last...
That is definitely one reason. They used to charge for some codecs but include support in QTX:http://store.apple.com/us/product/D2187Z/A/quicktime-mpeg-2-playback-component-for-mac-os-xThere's an interesting FAQ about VLC here:https://wiki.videolan.org/Frequently_Asked_Questions/"What about personal/commercial usage?Some of the codecs distributed with VLC are patented and require you to pay royalties to their licensors. These are mostly the MPEG style codecs.With many...
It must have been overall revenue, the following article says it was $8b paid to devs in 2013:http://www.tuaw.com/2014/01/07/the-app-store-monster-apple-in-2013-paid-developers-more-than-d/"In January of 2013, Apple indicated that it had cumulatively paid developers $7 billion. By January of 2014, that figure rose to $15 billion. The takeaway from these figures is astounding: During the last calendar year, Apple more than doubled the cumulative amount paid to developers...
