It's not Adobe's fault that content publishers embed videos using Flash. They provided this solution when there wasn't a cross-platform media framework to allow it. Youtube wouldn't exist today if it wasn't for Flash. HTML 5 video has only been supported in recent years, Youtube started in 2005. When people embedded Youtube videos, they had little choice but to use Flash.This was the case for self-embedded videos and competing video sites like Vimeo. Nowadays, this has...
You can drag songs from iTunes into a folder and it will make a copy of all the tracks. Move those over to the other computer, set the iTunes to copy the songs into the iTunes folder on import in preferences > advanced. On import, it will copy the songs into the iTunes folder and the original copied folder can be removed. All the songs should show up the same as they do in the other iTunes with track names etc.
Apple promoted using multiple colors back in 2008, I don't think it was linked with buyer personality though:Nokia's early Lumia ads were really terrible, like Powerpoints and the same repeating stock background music:Maybe they were running out of money back then. They changed tactic to promote the camera:They had a couple of ads where everybody else used competing phones and tablets and were engaged in fighting while a couple of people had Lumia phones. At least they...
Apple split out the desktop and laptop numbers in 2012 in their SEC filing and it was 75% laptop, 25% desktop and every filing since, they say the numbers have moved more to portables and they stopped splitting them out. The desktop ASP was $1300, which points to a higher purchase price. Tim Cook reported that the ~2-2.5 month iMac delay in late 2012 caused a 700,000 unit...
Only if they use SSL for all the connections. Another thread of the same Adobe hate comments. I expect everyone has deleted Firefox too because of all the critical security flaws:https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.htmlhttps://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2014/mfsa2014-29.html"these two bugs allow an attacker to load a JavaScript URL that is executed with the full privileges of the browser, which allows arbitrary code...
It misses out a very important consideration with emerging markets though and this is referenced in the link earlier about Xiaomi and here:http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-phablet-shipments-are-exploding-in-asia-2013-9"Phablets have experienced phenomenal growth in shipments across the Asia-Pacific region.Shipments increased by an average of 88 percent quarter-on-quarter between year-end 2011 and June 30 of this year, according to IDC.Much of the growth can be...
I think it was also insightful of them to realise that the mobile phone would cannibalize the iPod and make the move even while the iPod was going strong.Here's another video of the Meizu with 4.4" screen held next to the iPhone 5:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mCtDHR6CgA#t=330I think the display using more of the front face looks nicer. The Meizu has a messed up position for the earpiece and 16:10 looks too wide but something along those lines would be nice. Rather than...
It looks like the desktop Haswell refresh chips are coming May 11th: http://vr-zone.com/articles/internal-intel-charts-confirm-may-11-release-date-haswell-refresh/76279.html Those replace the chips currently in the iMacs e.g i7-4770 goes to i7-4790. 100MHz or so clock speed boost. If they intro a lower cost iMac, I'd expect it to have an i3 processor. To replace a mini bundle, it would have to hit $999 at most. That would be pushing it because the current entry is $1299...
It's no different from any other IAP though. When you buy some virtual coins in a game, Apple only has to process the payment, the game is just running some different code that's already in the game. If they said 0% for virtual coins but 30% for an extra map in a map program that they host, that's not really fair on developers. 30% is close to the rate for taxation - it's more likely just a flat rate worked out by weighing up costs against volume of users.I think it makes...
I think it's time to get rid of the iPod Touch entirely. People don't want standalone music players any more. The iPod Touch makes up over half of the iPod line and the total sales are at 2.7m units per quarter vs 43.7m iPhones. Say that the iPod Touch makes up 60% of iPod sales, that means there are 27 iPhones sold for every iPod Touch. Making it bigger won't change that significantly.The iPod as it is now is dead. It's over.The entry 16GB iPod Touch is $229 with no rear...
