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...
In some cases but Sony and Microsoft are selling better than ever:http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/04/microsoft-hits-5-million-milestone-for-xbox-one-as-sonys-lead-grows/They've only been on sale for 5-6 months and are at 7 million PS4 and 5 million XBone. It's just Nintendo struggling because their audience is moving to tablets and smartphones. Sony's and Microsoft's audience isn't and while PC gaming has grown, the audience can't shift from the consoles to it if the...
Could well be but most likely they'd still want to cache the shadow in a final product rather than calculate them every frame, which allows them to fake soft shadows much faster as they can apply a blur based on distance. This still gives better clarity than rasterized shadows, which would be generated by placing a camera at the light source. The other thing to consider is volumetric and displacement effects. Crysis is one engine that tries to find the best way to do each...
How do you know that she tripled Burberry's value though? All you can say for sure is that Burberry's value tripled while she was CEO, which has an entirely different meaning. It's just how we simplify things like saying an army general or country president won a particular war. Without the people at the front line delivering the work then they couldn't deliver any results. This happened with Apple too where Steve Jobs would ask the marketing teams and product teams to...
It's important to consider what form the payment is in. Stock options are taxed and valued differently from cash.Take CEO Elon Musk, he owns 28% of Tesla stock so when the stock price changes, his determined wealth changes rapidly:http://business.time.com/2014/02/26/elon-musk-1-1-billion-tesla-tuesday/As the following example shows, it can decline rapidly too:http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2013-10-03/eike-batista-how-brazils-richest-man-lost-34-dot-5-billionNot...
Maybe it didn't go through, there are no deleted comments in the thread.
Looks like the next big thing was already there. Good of Samsung to acknowledge that Apple pioneered the large screen touch phone. Then they merely iterated on it by an inch and claimed to be the pioneers.
That would be a different area of use but both have their benefits. In 2D, rasterisation is like Photoshopping where you have a fixed resolution and if you zoom in, you get blocky output but it means you can do a lot more effects as they don't require calculations to draw them. Vectors done in the likes of Illustrator can be zoomed infinitely and the computer redraws them but you can't easily construct every image as a vector. Often in Photoshop, it will ask explicitly to...
Not glass windows, through the glass ceiling. Women tend not to go up there as you can see up their skirts.In comparison to the billionaire stock owners, it's relatively small. Carl Icahn has ~100x this amount.The problem with this is determining what was responsible for the impact. Markets can change due to external influences or a product design direction. Customer satisfaction can improve due to the front-line workers being paid very low salaries but the manager gets...
It's always the finance people that are like this and the same people don't grasp some of Apple's more thoughtful ad campaigns. This is the kind of attitude that works well in the stock market: take out the morality and trade in a way to maximize profit. Interesting how he likened buying stock in already successful companies to charity as though the company needs the investor.This is a core point in discussions like these and it starts with an observation. People are born...
