I have noticed that you mostly take a defensive route rather than offensive but Google and Samsung are mostly mentioned on Apple forums (and Siri) so that we can poke fun at them, similarly why Apple is mentioned on Android forums:http://forums.androidcentral.com/general-news-discussion/302959-why-we-hate-apple.htmlThe mentions aren't really invitations for defensive comments. There's nothing wrong with defending your own preference but when that's all you do, you're in...
Those numbers aren't from any tests, I was just stating that 0.1 vs 1 doesn't make a big difference in the context of an audio search. I picked the numbers based on the statement saying orders of magnitude. But thanks for confirming that you have no confirmation to back that statement up other than my example numbers that were based on your statement. Yeah if they uploaded words at a time, that could be faster in getting results back depending on how they parse the...
I think the main target in that quote was the investment banks. You're right the term 'Wall Street' is ambiguous, it's generally used to label the entities that have the most control over the markets. Goldman Sachs is one example and there's a recent example of their market manipulation:http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323477604579001384260273274.htmlThis is the kind of thing that average people couldn't do, same with setting interest rates or at the very...
There's a test of the PowerVR G6200 here:http://www.engadget.com/2013/07/29/mediatek-mt8135-biglittle-mp-powervr-series6-g6200/They cut the iPad 4 out of the graphics test in the video, likely because the iPad 4 already scores higher than the G6200 in the tests. There's a nice list here of desktop and mobile devices...
There are various ways that the system is rigged and an ex-Goldman Sachs exec details some ways:http://business.time.com/2012/10/22/viewpoint-how-wall-street-rigs-the-game/"There is a misconception that Wall Street is composed of rich people gambling with other rich people’s money, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The secret that Wall Street doesn’t want anyone to know is that hedge funds comprise less than 5% of assets in the stock market. The real big players...
I wasn't saying those are examples of things people have said, I'm just saying those are the nature of comments that are often made. If you want an example though:http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/159139/youtube-for-ios-gets-multitasking-radical-fm-takes-on-pandora-with-pay-what-you-can-model#post_2383035The point I was making is that if people don't understand why Apple adjusts Siri with replies like this, look at why people make comments like the above and you'll see why....
I suspect it's much the same reason why you, Gatorguy and DroidFTW wasted time adding your comments to the thread. Instead of criticising Apple and/or defending Google on an Apple forum, you could be making useful comments on Google forums to Google fans. Comments like: 'hey do you like Google Glass, yeah I like Google Glass it's pointless but unique and new, did you search for things using Google, yeah I love searching for things, hey did you hear that Apple is suing,...
It uses 1080p instead of 1440p in the Cinema/TB displays so the workspace is about 3/4 in each direction but the UI will be bigger, which is actually nicer if your eyesight isn't great. It uses AH-IPS so the quality should be very good but there are factors like the coating and backlight brightness to consider. Someone here lists various IPS iterations and says they bought that display: http://www.overclock.net/t/1369334/ips-panels-ips-pro-vs-ah-ips The following site...
I feel the same way. Even a small investor can rally shareholders that have the same mindset. The institutional shareholders and mutual funds don't care about the company values and not even multi-billion dollar profits sometimes as they always want growth.Some news outlets are taking the route of reporting that Microsoft's market cap dropped from $600b to $295b under Ballmer's tenure but it's not true. Microsoft peaked at the end of 1999, their share price doubled in 1...
I can't remember if there was a video of a working model but they made the shells:If they are making a knockoff, they'd be best to wait until Apple launches so that they don't end going to market with a product buyers don't want.
