Thanks for clarifying, some people reported they get some, others don't:http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=663822Still, the UK prices are already well above whatever tax rate is applied in the US at $1.43 equivalent so there's plenty of room to absorb some increase.
iTunes downloads wouldn't be classified as services. This statement would refer to things like their financial services where VAT is charged on the repayments and controlled in part by Apple Distribution International in Ireland; not AppleCare though:http://store.apple.com/uk-business/browse/campaigns/macleasingIf iTunes supplied from Ireland, the receipts would say Ireland instead of Luxembourg. It's not a 3% VAT rate in Luxembourg for music though, it's 15% for music, 3%...
smtp.frontier.com is your outgoing server. Your incoming would be pop3.frontier.com or imap.frontiernet.net, depending on your account type: http://www.frontierhelp.com/faq.cfm?qstid=88
They wouldn't make one like that unless they could make it better. People who are happy with tap-to-click wouldn't mind it as they don't use the physical click anyway. The patent describes mounting the pad on 4 pressure sensors at the corners instead of the hinge. This not only evens the pressure over the pad but it makes it analog rather than digital and still allows physical movement. So they could do things that use pressure sensitivity.
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...
