When monopolies happen, blame the government for allowing the free market to sort itself out and failing (reworded as authorizing the monopoly to make it sound like they are guilty through their inaction); when the government moves in to block a potential monopoly, blame the government for interfering in the free market. What should they have done to prevent the local monopolies that you'd be happy with?This needs to happen first but then the regulations will be set and...
For more productive tasks and heavy reading, I don't think phablets work nearly as well as the iPad:http://www.cnet.com/uk/news/why-i-prefer-the-iphone-6-over-the-6-plus-apps/Video is a little different because the iPad mini is 4:3 and the iPhone 16:9 so if you look at 3:08 here, you can see that while there's still a size difference, it's not as big as with text and photos because 16:9 suits the widescreen display:Greg Joswiak said the 6 Plus is more popular in Asia, not...
These statements like "pick up the tab" are always meant to make people fearful of excessive costs but it's really just resentment for paying towards something everyone benefits from. Everyone benefits from having clean water, waste disposal and in developed countries, socialised healthcare and there is no excessive tab being paid. When everyone pays, everyone pays a very small amount.What it will help ensure is that in areas where there is a monopoly created by inherent...
I wonder if Windows mobile OS is susceptible to this, it suggests every OS: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2846004/microsoft-fixes-severe-19-year-old-windows-bug-found-in-everything-since-windows-95.html Some karma for putting proprietary functionality into a web browser. "The bug has existed in every version of Windows since Windows 95, and would have allowed an attacker to run code remotely when the user visits a malicious website... the bug relies on a vulnerability...
A right to access doesn't mean a right to take for free. Net neutrality is just that you get the same McRib as the next guy, not a mini version just because you want to take it away vs sitting in the restaurant.I think that companies should be allowed to adjust traffic speeds based on the protocols used to ensure quality of service for everyone but there should be limits to how much they can do this so they can't for example drop your 50Mb connection down to 1Mb just...
You can buy some for just $299.95.Yeah the margins will be huge on these. Sennheiser's animated annual report is here, the financials are linked from it:http://www.sennheiser-annualreport.comRevenue of 590m euros in 2013 with cost of materials 232m euros so gross profit is around 60%. Beats has lower build quality so they can easily be getting away with higher than that.If the following is correct and Beats make $1.4b per year...
Probably but not a good idea. You'd be better just turning off the transparency:http://www.howtogeek.com/199201/how-to-disable-window-transparency-in-os-x-yosemite/and possibly turn on dark mode:http://www.macworld.co.uk/how-to/mac-software/turn-on-yosemites-dark-mode-on-mac-3534690/
If the potential market size is so low that it makes more sense to let 3rd parties handle it then that's the most likely route for Apple, although they make some exceptions. Tim mentioned the Mac Pro in his recent interview saying it was a low volume product but they chose to keep making it for creative customers. The ModBook looks good enough for drawing with:but they replaced the display with a low quality panel and when you need to type, you have to prop it up...
No, it was for an insult towards another member in another thread. He's made a few insults over a certain period and when they add up, it results in a temporary 3 day ban.
This is all possible with the Macbook models, here's a 780ti run over TB2, which has more bandwidth than ExpressCard:
