They apparently topped 1 million each in the first 24 hours:http://www.cnbc.com/id/101222864They've both done really well. Nintendo hasn't even sold 0.5 million in 6 months:http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/30/wii-u-nintendo-sells-under-500000-in-six-monthsI'd say Apple's products complement the XBox and Playstation consoles as you can use them while playing to track stats and as guides. They compete more with the 3DS, Vita and Wii as they are more focused on casual...
According to Apple, Migration Assistant supports external disks: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4413?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US#3 So you should be able to plug it in via USB and choose the option to migrate from a disk. You'd just buy a USB 3 enclosure like this: http://www.amazon.com/SIIG-2-5-Inch-Tool-Less-Enclosure-JU-SA0M12-S1/dp/B008DWBQU0/ If it doesn't work for some reason, you can always get another drive, boot from the original and then make a Time Machine...
I don't find Charlie Rose to be a particularly good interviewer. His questions never seem to start a discussion and aren't inviting conversation. They are more harassing for definitive answers to each bullet point. The conversation just seems to stop dead after each one is done.I also feel like I'm watching the same interview with Ive over and over in different settings. There are usually at least some small unique elements though. The part that stood out for me was his...
You can tell if it's metal by pointing the back towards the center of the forehead, rotate it about 70 degrees away from the head and then really violently rotate it towards the head until you hear a thud. The metallic sound is unmistakable. If you don't hear it at first, keep doing it harder each time.
I was wondering what happened to him, I noticed the posts just stopped all of a sudden. He posted right up until the day he died. Replying to Ireland of all people, what a terrible way to go. Hopefully not the cause. How did you happen to come across this obituary? You're not trawling through them regularly after placing bets on who goes next I hope.
Einhorn's proposal was some iPref thing:http://uk.reuters.com/article/2013/02/21/us-apple-einhorn-call-idUSBRE91K1GR20130221It seems to be designed to encourage savers to invest in Apple and boost the stock price. For some reason, shareholders always seem to think Apple needs to attract more shareholders - some misguided sense of self-importance perhaps. Investors help when a company needs capital, Apple doesn't need this and they don't need more investors.Apple tried to...
You can upgrade the OS to 10.9 using the App Store software. You can upgrade the RAM buying from Crucial (max 16GB) and you can get an SSD to replace the hard drive. The OS upgrade is free or if you have to get an intermediate update, no more than about $10-20. 16GB of RAM would be about $150 but you might get by with 8GB. 250GB Samsung SSD is $170: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-EVO-Series-2-5-Inch-MZ-7TE250BW/dp/B00E3W1726 You can get a 500GB for $340. The...
There's a multi-page article here about Einhorn that makes me think he's not quite as bad as some of the others in his industry:http://nymag.com/news/businessfinance/47844/He started his company with $900k and grew it into a company managing over $6b in 12 years (apparently he's made over 20% yearly returns). A lot of his gains have come from shorting stock in companies he sees that aren't doing their accounts properly like Lehman Brothers. He criticises the investment...
In your system prefs > security > general, change it to allow installation from anywhere. Then change it back after install if you want.
No, I mean similar to my suggestions back in March, which Google obviously stole!:http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/156649/yahoo-buying-ios-app-summly-removes-it-from-app-store-for-power-nap#post_2300660"I actually think this would have been a good idea for Newsstand. Rather than subscribe to one publication, you'd tell it your interests and it would feed summaries of relevant articles into a wall of content and you'd be able to rank each article, like a personalised...
