I don't know why they put in statements like:"Android has a 72 percent market share with AppleĀ® iOS a distant second with 14 percent, according to Gartner. As a result of its market share and more open development environment, Android is the main target for mobile threats."to even suggest that security by obscurity is a factor here. Android is on 900 million devices (maybe 1b by now) and iOS is on 600 million. It's not 72% vs 14%. They even note that iOS had 387 reported...
1 billion people were already buying phones and the functionality of the iPhone was significantly better because it finally brought usable browsing to mobile and powerful apps. A smart watch is competing more with the smartphone than the dumbwatch while being less powerful.There's a video of the Android GEAK watch here:You can see various scenarios like checking email. The guy taps through a presentation on the watch and the graphics overlay says "sending email". It has...
You have to think of how it does that. It has no keyboard so you can't text or dial phones. It's on the wrist so it can't have a headphone jack. The battery is tiny as are the components so they can't run full apps or even have wifi and how do they let you charge it? There's no place for a lightning port. There are limited-use cases such as fitness accessories, maybe even some navigation but for the most part, this sort of thing will appeal to the same people who had...
When it's your core business model, it means compromising functionality in favour of it. Such as blocking HTML 5 video on Youtube when videos are intended to play ads, discontinuing RSS services so that people visit ad-supported sites instead, discontinuing SMS services to push people to adopt ad-supported smartphones:http://www.engadget.com/2013/05/13/google-drops-sms-search/The point is that Google makes decisions to support their core business model like any other...
The Macbook Air is faster (60% faster CPU and about 15% faster GPU) and has an SSD. The Macbook Pro does have the benefit of the larger screen but the resolution is 1280x800 vs the 11" at 1366x768 so you get roughly the same workspace on both. You can upgrade the storage and RAM on the MB but if they are enough already, it's not a big deal. I'd personally say the Air is the better option and it will also be worth more so if you wanted to upgrade to a Haswell model or even...
There's another demo here that shows the filesystem dialog:For a while, people have wondered what a touch-based OS X would be like and from what I can see, it looks like iOS. The limitations with iOS vs the Mac really just come down to the available software and sharing files between apps. As far as interaction with the software, it pretty much has to behave like iOS with full-screen windows to be useable.
Every audio/video professional is regularly in situations where their phones are stabbed with large hunting knives (it's dangerous out there in the real-world) and they need to hold up under that strain. Those people won't be upgrading from their scratch-proof iPhone 4s until this issue is resolved. The 55000+ employees at Apple have lost their way with this... only Steve understood. It should also be 6-core with 4GB of RAM minimum, have a larger screen (matte) and of...
This is another of those rumors that just get floated around for years. This one celebrates its 3rd birthday today:http://www.razorianfly.com/2010/08/28/apple-to-debut-iwatch-next-week-rumor/I found some stats previously during the course of the numerous threads about it showing potential numbers:http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/157069/survey-finds-19-of-consumers-interested-in-buying-apple-iwatch#post_2313658One of the references there showed watch export numbers for...
Have you tried adjusting the channels on the Airport as described here to make sure that nothing else is interfering with your device: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3900962?start=0&tstart=0 Cordless phones, baby monitors and other wireless devices can interfere with wifi devices.
Google issued an update recently that broke 3rd party local streaming on the Chromecast:http://www.engadget.com/2013/08/26/chromecast-update-breaks-local-media-streaming-in-apps/I can't stand when companies are so controlling, it's like having a nice garden and someone just puts up walls around it. When I buy hardware, I should be able to do what I want with it. Of course their excuse is it's just beta like everything else they make but the reality is that they're an...
