If they are still ramping up then the monthly total might end up being higher but with these numbers, they'd only manage 50m for a full quarter, which is around the same as Apple's highest ever iPhone quarterly sales.The ratio is interesting as the 6+ is around 1/3 the 6 so that gives an idea of their expected demand for each, even though the 6+ output is increasing. I expect the 6+ to get a lot higher volume initially than its sustained volume because the few who have...
The good news for U2 is at least 2 million people know who they are now. It'll boost sales of their old songs. Here's some other decent ones:
If they are VRO format from DVD-RAM discs, they might not show up or encode properly with ffmpeg encoders like Handbrake. If they don't, you can try MPEG Streamclip:http://www.squared5.com/svideo/mpeg-streamclip-mac.htmlThat will open the video and allow you to export it. If the audio is separate, it will do a better job of joining the two together for export. I'm not sure what the best export format would be for iMovie. ProRes is best for editing but can be quite large...
NFC is a subset of RFID cards:http://blog.atlasrfidstore.com/rfid-vs-nfcso some people may be confused about the prevalence of them for payments. RFID cards are used in hotels and things for unlocking doors and could serve as an id for charging your bill. It is used in transport and the following site says the UK has 23 million contactless cards (might not all use NFC) out of ~65m people:http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-20694027Very few are being used though. Banks issue...
The default would be for convenience. I don't suppose it would be such a big deal choosing a card each time though. If you are at a checkout, it can bring up the options and you pick the one to use at the time and then use touch id to validate the purchase. I'd prefer to choose each time but I can understand frequent shoppers would just want to touch the button.
It's an important distinction. The 7" tablets that were around at the time were cramped as you can see here:The people who said they'd never make an iPad mini were meaning they'd never make an unreasonably small iPad like what was available at the time and they haven't. Samsung ended up making an 8" tablet.If someone drives a bright pink car or wears a crazy hat, it's their choice but it's natural to laugh at the choice. No matter what people's tolerance levels are,...
If there's not enough sustained bandwidth then it will break but with the display, nothing has to compete for bandwidth and it would simply lower the refresh and not show partial frames. Take Thunderbolt 2 for example, it has around 20Gbps. 5K @ 60Hz is around that too but that's maxing it out. But to get the first full frame buffer, they can send 50% on the first refresh cycle and the next 50% on the 2nd - this is like the display operating at 30Hz but it only does this...
The full first hour is on Hulu, it's worth watching, the second part will likely be uploaded soon: http://www.hulu.com/watch/686851 For people outside the US, Google for a US proxy server, get an IP address and go to system prefs > network, select the active network (e.g wifi or ethernet) > advanced > proxies > check web proxy, enter US proxy IP in server box, hit ok, hit apply and reload the video. Disable the proxy when done. The more interviews he does, the more they...
It's a pretty high valuation, especially when the founder will leave the company and the studio's main game has already been bought in large numbers:http://www.businessinsider.com/minecraft-creator-markus-notch-persson-is-leaving-mojang-2014-9That's a pretty steep income curve too. Started working as an employee at King (Candy Crush Saga) at 26, stayed for for 4.5 years using Actionscript and Java. Left before Candy Crush Saga happened to work elsewhere and then started...
The pixelated mess happens with video if you skip to the middle of a block it can't decode fully but I'm only talking about two frames, not a large group of frames.The display would have a frame buffer (db), the device sending the data has the same buffer, call it the source buffer (sb).The first time, it fills sb with the image and sends it using the visually lossless compression or in two passes (50% each) to db.The next time, it compares the new frame with sb and stores...
