The second research was after the S3, the first was before it. Customers don't know what they don't want until they see it. They didn't make the S3 Mini until a while after the S3 shipped.Around the time of the S2, likely before it, they asked customers what they wanted and they said smaller than an iPad bigger than an iPhone so they made the Note so as not to risk their flagship smartphone business. They must have had a positive reception for the Note and then designed...
The weight difference is interesting, the 13" Air (1.35kg) is only 14% lighter than the 13" rMBP (1.57kg), which again suggests they don't need both. I suspect the 15" would be easier to cut down because the components have a much higher power draw. The Air is 15W tops, the 13" rMBP is 35W, the 15" can sustain 90W, although the entry CPU is 47W on its own.The 15" (2.02kg) has a 95Wh battery and lasts 8 hours so average draw of 10.6W to achieve this. The battery itself...
You should get insurance to cover accidental damage - get some for your replacement phone. If you buy a new car and crash it, the company you bought it from won't give you a new one, you claim for it on your car insurance. Apple does sometimes switch out phones under warranty but usually for defects of some kind, not for water damage or breakages.
That's sensor resolution, if the optics among other things don't produce that effective resolution, the sensor's not going to be much benefit. The Galaxy S5 camera doesn't look to be any better than the 5S:http://blog.laptopmag.com/iphone-5s-vs-galaxy-s5The Lumia 1020 had a 42 megapixel sensor and it at least delivered on the quality somewhat:http://www.trustedreviews.com/nokia-lumia-1020_Mobile-Phone_review_camera-image-quality_Page-4"First, let’s tackle optical image...
Comment at the bottomhttp://techcrunch.com/2012/05/16/its-time-for-a-larger-iphone/"I had the chance to go to a seminar here in Seoul at the Samsung headquarters where the lady presenting the strategy behind the Galaxy Note told us:Ok we asked customers, what's wrong with the ipad? they said "it's too big!"And the iPhone? "it's too small"! customers said.SO... because we are so smart we made something in between...and the Galaxy note was born."The Galaxy S2 ripped off the...
Samsung actually made the Galaxy Mini because of complaints their flagship phone was too big: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-05-28/the-samsung-galaxy-s4-mini-is-coming-and-quickly "in certain corners of the world—and demographic segments—there was resistance. “Our research showed that some customers, particularly some female customers, found the size of the phone to be too large,” says Samsung Mobile marketing chief D.J. Lee." Is it better to have 3 beds, one...
You can see immediately why that makes the system much worse because people can survive on the same amounts of expenditure. A person on $30k a year can live on $20k of expenses and so can someone making $100m a year. If you remove the income tax rates, it just allows the wealthy to grow their income to even more obscene levels while contributing hardly anything to public services. It's dressed up to look like it's 'fair' by suggesting someone who earns $100m should...
I actually wonder if it would be a better idea to have a 15" Retina Air instead of a 13" rMBP. The 13" isn't exactly a powerhouse with dual-core processors and not that much faster than the Air. Maybe they can't get the components at that price level but if the Air does get a Retina model, the 13" rMBP is going to overlap with it somewhere.
The aim is simulating how light behaves and it's another form of EM radiation so there's some commonality in how it behaves with other radiation but light also behaves like a particle:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:EM_Spectrum_Properties_edit.svgThere's not really interference needing to be accounted for either; there's some geometry intersection calculations but there's a difference in the amount of computations required and the computer doesn't need to do...
They didn't have 3.5" and 4" flagship models so I expect a single model. The leaks so far look pretty unreliable - at best they describe a 4.7" iPod Touch not an iPhone. Phone cases don't have holes for sim trays and the plastic mockup just added a sim tray under the assumption the case was for an iPhone. Perhaps the iPod Touch is 4.7" and the iPhone 6 is smaller but thicker without the camera sticking out the back. I expect someone will get a back case once they go into...
