'Brand value' doesn't really have much of a meaning. They outline the methodology here:http://brandirectory.com/methodology"Brand Finance calculates brand value using the Royalty Relief methodology which determines the value a company would be willing to pay to license its brand as if it did not own it. This approach involves estimating the future revenue attributable to a brand and calculating a royalty rate that would be charged for the use of the brand. The steps in...
Is Apple considering including the stylus with the product? Are they going to bring it to market? They have patents for goggles too but they haven't brought them to market and we make fun of Google Glass, as does Apple ('that glass looks half full').You didn't take his comment at face value, you took it out of context and declared how you interpreted it outside that context. I put it back into context and said how I interpreted it inside that context.Apple hasn't included...
Some AAA studios do struggle financially. AAA developers aren't all backed by big marketing budgets. A dedicated place in the App Store is highly visible. There doesn't seem to be a strict definition of what qualifies as Indie:http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/05/03/ea-indie-bundle-released-on-steam-wait-what/and I would say that a good deal of Indie development shouldn't be promoted. Look at examples of what happened on Kickstarter and Steam's...
If your point is that Steve Jobs wasn't always right about everything then I don't see why you especially see that as significant. If they tested multiple sizes and at that point in time decided 10" gave the best experience then that's what they thought. They are allowed to change their minds during further testing.You also took that quote out of context. The statement was:"There are clear limits of how close you can physically place elements on a touch screen before users...
"The rankings were compiled by Fortune editor Geoff Colvin". The guy seems a bit full of himself:http://www.geoffcolvin.com/bio/Who puts the following statement on their own website and refers to themself in the 3rd person: "Geoff is an award-winning thinker, author, broadcaster, and speaker on today's most significant trends in business."Do they give out awards for thinking, how would anyone know? He even put some random basketball coaches ahead of...
Again, it's in context i.e "Nobody wants a stylus"... as the primary means to operate a mobile device. If he personally extended it to drawing then so what, that would have been his opinion. He also said "people don't read books anymore", yet they have a book store:http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2008/01/steve-jobs-peop/"It doesn’t matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don’t read anymore,” he said. “Forty percent of the people in the U.S. read one...
I would guess that they are treating it like the SSD cache in a Fusion drive. Every time you open a file, it keeps the file in memory even when it's closed so that it doesn't have to get it from a slower drive again. I doubt there's a way to limit it as it's not really a problem. The system will flush the file cache as soon as more RAM is needed. You aren't out of RAM, it's just that the space that used to be empty has something sitting in it until something else needs the...
It depends on the wholesale prices. Given that Apple so effectively sells direct to customers, they have very little reason to sell to other retailers at low prices and it seems they don't:http://www.macworld.com/article/2024257/how-apple-sets-its-prices.html"Apple, extends only a tiny wholesale discount on its Macs and iPads to your retailer of choice. The actual numbers are a closely guarded secret, protected by confidentiality agreements between Cupertino and its...
It's not very concise, plus a lot of things are said in context. When you take statements out of that context, they become more ambiguous. These videos are talking about the main usage of the device:Not that this should stop you going out of your way to find faults or contradictions in everything Apple does. It also helps to avoid pre-emptively assuming everything Steve said should be considered correct.
Meaning that if you have to use a stylus as the primary way to operate a device, they blew it (like Palm or Windows CE). Having one optional for painting and drawing is not blowing it because it's entirely optional.That would be very useful. Even more so if you could use it on a Mac. You could just have the pen and poke an image in a book or a physical object and then instantly push it onto a computer to use.
