Mainly the slot for the sim tray on the side but it could also be one of those knockoff models.
If the technology had been around centuries ago, it would have been used the same way. There has always been vanity and that's what selfies are a result of. You can see this everywhere you go:Women go around with mirrors and makeup every day:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/10788116/Women-significantly-more-likely-to-take-selfies-than-men.htmlTaking a photo of yourself is a good way to see yourself as others see you because mirrors flip the image over but cameras...
People do use the word incorrectly. This happened with the news media where journalists were guessing the voicemail pin codes of celebrities to hear messages they could write stories about and it was called hacking but nobody would say the cellular network operators were to blame.There was a brute force script written to guess iCloud login passwords and it seems that iCloud didn't bother preventing multiple attempts. It's suspected that this was used.The use of passwords...
One thing I noticed in the Apple diversity video was a name badge that said Anand: I searched for pictures of Anand Shimpi and they looked alike and the name seems quite unique. I knew he didn't work at Apple at the time but now I'm thinking maybe that was his name badge after all. Hopefully the Anandtech site won't stop publishing such detailed analyses of Mac hardware, they tend to be the only ones that go to those lengths to benchmark and test everything. It's good...
It might not be, passwords have been taken from numerous other hacks e.g 1.2 billion passwords here:http://news.sky.com/story/1313779/russian-hackers-pull-off-biggest-data-theftSome have been exploiting the Heartbleed bug in SSL. If the celebs use the same passwords for different sites, someone can just login to other sites. One person at least partially responsible for this very real leak has been identified and has been asking for bitcoin payments to release more...
Apple takes 30% of the purchase price on the online stores, WSJ says that's true for music:http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB121987440206377643"Apple keeps about 30% of the price of each music sale, whether it's a 99-cent track or a $10 album, according to people in the music industry. Apple has said it makes little profit from iTunes because of the costs of running the online store."They take a percentage however much it is, which is not something they can do when...
It got changed to regular insanity. There's only a brief interlude of sanity that happens somewhere after the buzz dies down about a newly released iPhone and before some analyst makes up a load of rubbish about the next one or Samsung/Microsoft/Google does or says something provocative.
The following $459 watch has a simpler design like the 360:http://www.amazon.com/Frederique-Constant-FC-245AS4S6-Black-Leather/dp/B008PTPFEEThe following $222 watch is more like the LG G Watch:http://www.amazon.com/Philip-Stein-34-BB-RB-Extreme-Rubber/dp/B0060JB57MThe actual price of the 360 is reported to be $249. The LG G Watch price is now reported as...
It looks like they have in a few countries but it says here they were denied in Iceland due to confusion with iSwatch:http://www.zdnet.com/swatch-wont-take-apple-to-court-over-iwatch-trademark-7000029185/"According to watson.ch, the Swiss site that first reported Swatch's challenge, Monaco has granted a trademark for iWatch, while Iceland rejected an application for iWatch since it was "confusingly similar" to iSwatch."No iWatch for you then Iceland, your loss.I don't...
Yeah, these Avid subscription prices are too much:http://www.avid.com/static/resources/common/documents/datasheets/Media_Composer/Media_Composer_License_Comparison_Guide_cs_A4.pdfThe best idea is to make subscribing significantly less in the near-term. They still need to play a long game but companies don't always think like that when they are in desperate circumstances. They might be struggling for cashflow and don't have the luxury of waiting on subscriptions paying...
