The ATV remote is the worst remote of all small TV streaming devices (Roku, Chrome, etc.)--maybe the worst remote of any kind. It's a great example of a good idea gone wrong. First of all, it is ergonomically deficient. Every time I use it I ask myself, "Did the people who designed/approved this thing use it on a daily basis?" The selector ring is so indistinct from the surrounding surface and center button that at least a third of the time I make an incorrect selection....
Did you read past the headline? Apple helped those non-iPhone buying third world countries by magnitudes. Why make Apple sound self-serving when clearly they're not?
It's a nice gesture, but it's enough. Countries like the Philippines and Haiti need help to a much higher level than economic powerhouses like China.
Me too. I thought hardware was being de-emphasized. Maybe they should just re-brand them as X-box Stores.
That's the first thing I thought too. I think it was Huawei servers that were accused of having a back door that would allow the Chinese military to snoop. The head of Huawei is a Chinese military officer. A General, I think.
The last truly easy to use draw app was MacDraw. It lacked a lot of features, but was intuitive and allowed me to do floor plans as a scenery designer without reading a thick manual or taking classes. It got better over the years until Apple stopped supporting it. Pity. I have tried all the substitutes that people recommend, including this one, but all leave me frustrated and longing for the ease of use and simplicity of the original. Sometimes all you want is straight...
You can see it from space! Should have modified the circle into the shape of the Apple logo.
I hate Sammy as much as the next Apple fan, but predictions of its death strike me as premature. They are a huge conglomerate of which the smartphone business is only part. Their other branches can underwrite the phone biz, and/or they can continue as just another minority player. They will live on. What I wonder is what will be the next wave in AI computing. When will something completely different replace solid-state/silicon chips? In some lab somewhere is the...
Sure hope it's lighter. My Air is a definite improvement over my previous pad, but my arm still gets tired holding it in space, as when laying on my back in bed. Of course the stock Apple full cover adds to the problem.
If you are citing this independent paragraph: "Google has left open plenty of vectors for malware attacks seeking to spy on users or take control of their devices to form botnets," it did not specifically state that Al Qaeda might be running a botnet, only that Google has such a vulnerability that anyone with evil intent could so exploit. He is not making that up. You may not believe that Jihadists are or could do this, but that's no less conjecture than you accuse DED of.
