- it means it can be used with an iPad (like in the video) and the controller shared between multiple devices- it means multiplayer with one iOS device (like in the video)- it means you don't have to clip on/off the controller each time you want to play- if a new device form factor comes out, you don't need a new controllerIMO, this is the best controller out of the 3 that exist. 10 hour battery life is decent enough too, especially with a 2 hour charge time. $100 is still...
The GPUs need to be stuck to the heat-sink with thermal paste. I very much doubt NVidia will offer an internal solution. NVidia GPUs do work externally over Thunderbolt though:http://mediapros.co.uk/portfolio-view/thunderbolterizer/Now that it's Thunderbolt 2, a Quadro 4000 or higher should run just fine in something like a Sonnet box.
They can supplement it by translating successive images based on the sensor data in the device too. If you are panning the device for example, there would be a lot of differences between frames but if it knows that you moved the device to the right relative to the comparison frame, it doesn't have to try as hard to find the common elements as it knows the kind of movement you made to get the new frame. With normal video, the compressor doesn't know how the camera was...
They assess the success of their business on earnings, not speculative trading. Speculative trading is not based in reality because that future reality hasn't happened yet and Apple's success has been helped greatly by their future roadmap not being known.I like how you say 300s when it only just dipped below 400. The lowest value it reached of $390 still meant it had over $350b market cap. So at its worst, the company was still valued as the 2nd most valuable company in...
This is a common misconception when it comes to big businesses. They are just made up of many talented individuals. It seems that they have about 20,000 non-retail staff:http://techcrunch.com/2011/10/09/apple-1000-engineers-chips/This will be split between software engineers, hardware engineers, designers, marketing and so on. While someone within the portion of software engineers might well be capable of developing code to do this specific task, they clearly tried already...
Right but it has nothing to do with Apple's business. Your comment "Apple was dead in the water" suggests that the company was doing badly. The company was doing just fine. Their stock price going down doesn't mean they are. As you rightly state, the stock value comes from the perception of traders. It's not Apple's responsibility to convince traders of anything - they aren't in need of funding, it's up to traders what they want to believe. If Apple keeps running well then...
The graphics chips are soldered to the motherboard. You have to get another motherboard but they don't manufacture them any more, which is why they have to stop supporting them. The machine you have is worth about $300-500 just now. If you really want to stick with the model you have, you can pick up an older model from eBay:http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-MacBook-Pro-17-Laptop-MA897LL-A-June-2007-/221348730956They'd probably accept a lower offer than $450. It will fail...
You're saying their quarterly financial earnings improved with Icahn's involvement? I doubt it. You must be talking about their stock price rising, which has nothing to do with the success of Apple's business. The stock price changed with the buyback, which they set out long before Carl got involved:http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2012/03/19Apple-Announces-Plans-to-Initiate-Dividend-and-Share-Repurchase-Program.htmlMaybe Carl has some influence over other traders'...
We know that the iMac makes up at least 1m units per quarter from what Tim said (700,000 units down when not available for approx 2 months out of 3 in a quarter), this would make the iMac at least 4 million out of the 4.656m desktops they reported in their 2012 10K filing. This leaves around 700k for both the Mini and Pro per year. I would say the Mini would take a slightly higher share but the Mac Pro is likely somewhere between 200-350k per year or 50-90k per quarter....
If you are talking about workstations, there isn't a significant enough market for ones with massive amounts of RAM. If you mean servers in a shared environment where the RAM expense isn't allocated to an individual, they already had a server and stated nobody was buying them. It's all very well being the lone voice enthusiastically saying you'd buy one but unless there's another 100,000 people every quarter who feel the same way, it's not a good business decision for...
