Maybe it loosens up over time but it's definitely hinged at the top, they patented the design:http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/05/14/apple-wins-utility-patent-for-macbooks-trackpad-designThat was one of the reasons for the patent this article is about:"There are a few issues with the existing design, including the increasing pressure required to activate the switch when a user's finger moves further toward the hinged edge."
Could be. The Haswell-Y series performs ok at the maximum TDP, it's around a 2010 dual-core i5:http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Core-i5-4202Y-Notebook-Processor.102728.0.htmlThe fanless designs might be restricting it below the maximum power but a small fan could be enough to keep it higher power:A few people say they get on just fine with 6 or 7 year old hardware so 4 year old hardware should suffice for them. The biggest problem is getting the heat away from the CPU so...
The current trackpad has the problem that it doesn't click at all if you press the top 1/5th of the pad because that's where it's hinged. This new trackpad should allow the click from anywhere.Force feedback is a sensation that the trackpad is repelling your finger and the harder you press, the stronger the repulsion pushing against your nerve endings:http://gizmodo.com/5962754/when-you-sit-down-does-your-ass-actually-touch-the-chairSo given that it's just a nerve...
Jimmy Fallon has a Mac and an iPhone too, he hid the Mac from Bill Gates here:Bill shared his vision of the future - they're still working on figuring out handwriting. That's what the Surface users have to look forward to and maybe they'll have a way to attach a printer and have robotic pigeons to tie the notes to. This is one reason Apple keeps succeeding - they know how to let go of the past.That can't be right, I heard that it's Apple that's playing catch-up and Android...
'Brand value' doesn't really have much of a meaning. They outline the methodology here:http://brandirectory.com/methodology"Brand Finance calculates brand value using the Royalty Relief methodology which determines the value a company would be willing to pay to license its brand as if it did not own it. This approach involves estimating the future revenue attributable to a brand and calculating a royalty rate that would be charged for the use of the brand. The steps in...
Is Apple considering including the stylus with the product? Are they going to bring it to market? They have patents for goggles too but they haven't brought them to market and we make fun of Google Glass, as does Apple ('that glass looks half full').You didn't take his comment at face value, you took it out of context and declared how you interpreted it outside that context. I put it back into context and said how I interpreted it inside that context.Apple hasn't included...
Some AAA studios do struggle financially. AAA developers aren't all backed by big marketing budgets. A dedicated place in the App Store is highly visible. There doesn't seem to be a strict definition of what qualifies as Indie:http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/05/03/ea-indie-bundle-released-on-steam-wait-what/and I would say that a good deal of Indie development shouldn't be promoted. Look at examples of what happened on Kickstarter and Steam's...
If your point is that Steve Jobs wasn't always right about everything then I don't see why you especially see that as significant. If they tested multiple sizes and at that point in time decided 10" gave the best experience then that's what they thought. They are allowed to change their minds during further testing.You also took that quote out of context. The statement was:"There are clear limits of how close you can physically place elements on a touch screen before users...
"The rankings were compiled by Fortune editor Geoff Colvin". The guy seems a bit full of himself:http://www.geoffcolvin.com/bio/Who puts the following statement on their own website and refers to themself in the 3rd person: "Geoff is an award-winning thinker, author, broadcaster, and speaker on today's most significant trends in business."Do they give out awards for thinking, how would anyone know? He even put some random basketball coaches ahead of...
Again, it's in context i.e "Nobody wants a stylus"... as the primary means to operate a mobile device. If he personally extended it to drawing then so what, that would have been his opinion. He also said "people don't read books anymore", yet they have a book store:http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2008/01/steve-jobs-peop/"It doesn’t matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don’t read anymore,” he said. “Forty percent of the people in the U.S. read one...
