OpenCL runs on CPUs too so you get access to lots of memory. IBM servers, ARM, x86, GPUs etc:http://www.khronos.org/conformance/adopters/conformant-productsCUDA is solely NVidia products.
Maybe Flappy Candy.Because it's ad revenue, the people who still have the game (50 million downloads) should still keep generating the money. It doesn't get removed from the devices. Some people have even taken to eBay to sell their devices at a premium with Flappy Bird installed.That would explain it. The game was uploaded a year ago but just took off recently. The PewDiPie video has over 9 million views, Flappy starts about half way:This is one distinction with iOS and...
Same with the Mac Pro redesign though. There were no leaks at all.That's because they have to ship 100 million units a year though, not 0.5 million and there's a display process involved. With the Mac Pro and Mini, it's just machining the cases separately and then the conveyer belt moves them down the line for hand-assembly.The easiest setup would be to have it so that most parts connect to a small metal frame like the PSU, motherboard with soldered RAM and HDD. Then slot...
Would it have to be a different production line from the Mac Pro? Once the Mac Pro orders slow down, they can push the Minis through the same line. It's all hand assembly so they just have a different bucket of parts.The only problem there is the base price. A 500GB hard drive can easily start at $50 but a 128GB entry SSD would be over $100. If the net margin on a $599 Mini is 25%, that's just $150 profit. It doesn't give a lot of room to adjust component prices. I think...
The IE thing was about bundling a single app almost everyone with a computer needs to use. This is about rejecting apps very few people use.People can say the same with the boob jiggle apps - Apple has no reason to ban them and having a single store means no jiggling.What's the expected outcome?They either relax the rules and allow more apps into their store, which they are then seen as promoting or they allow users to install apps themselves.They already allow users to...
Tim only said one Mac product originally, which was the Mac Pro but he said they had a commitment to creating more US jobs. They shouldn't cost any more to make in the US - they don't have many parts:Maybe even simpler if they go with 1 HDD, a PCIe SSD (BTO) and soldered RAM. The shipment volume should be around the same as the Mac Pro.
If they are moving it back to the US, they would be better to get their Mac Pros clear first. They are still over 4 week shipping times.PCs using the dual-core chips suitable for the Mini only came out in December so it's only a couple of months over anyway. They might manage March/April and then the new laptops in June at WWDC.
He may have meant in terms of performance not in volume of gamers using Linux:http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/133824-valve-opengl-is-faster-than-directx-even-on-windowsalthough there is also this:http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/159476-ps4-runs-orbis-os-a-modified-version-of-freebsd-thats-similar-to-linuxA PS4 version of a game shouldn't need much more than a recompile to run on a Mac or Linux machine. They'll keep some exclusivity (even just timed) on the console but...
It was a spammer that replied.
No because the transactions are tracked. Bitcoin to bitcoin transactions are anonymous. If someone was to launder $1m of stolen cash, they could give $1000 to 1000 people to put into some kind of account and then send it back to the original person. It's pointless to do this at a bank because the bank accounts aren't anonymous. If they do it via Paypal, it's more anonymous but the transactions can only be withdrawn to a bank and Paypal tracks everything in...
