^^^ This!
I think you, and DED are wrong about potential and future of HaloLens.The following video shows some of this:Aside from the presenter's endearing, yet distracting voice changes -- and the clumsy efforts to promote Windows 10, there was some real meat in the preso.At about 15:00 in, they discuss, then demo their Holo Studio app.If you pay attention to the non-HoloLens camera view, you can see the various parts offset from the assembly, in Lorraine's line of sight through...
Really?Convenience of Apple Pay, concise notifications/communication by raising your wrist (while the iPhone stays in your pocket, purse, or pack) -- not to mention HealthKit integration.Really?Where do you go, today, that a watch with GPS would allow you not to carry a phone -- joggers hikers get mugged, have accidents too!
Guy?Surely, you don't mean Guy Kawasaki -- AIR, his top job at Apple was Evangelist.
The Xbox Driving Video reminded me of this from last century:
What about SoI or SoS?A while back I did some surfing and there were companies doing research in this area ... AIR, it included APUs and stacked DRAM chips.Basically, much smaller traces requiring much less power while providing much better heat dissipation.
While I agree that Apple has no offering the TV arena -- I don't think they should ...However, that does not mean that Apple has no skin in the game for hi-resolution displays. I am reading/writing this on a loaded iMac 5K computer that has a base price similar to Dell's 5K display. Based on experience, I suspect this computer returns a profit margin consistent with similar Apple products.
Well, I never even touched an Amiga …But, on the Apple ][, while you were directly interfacing the hardware with Peaks and Pokes or with assembler -- what you were really doing was using the APIs in the ROM built into the computer.Bill Atkinson and a couple of others came into our store, after visiting Amiga (supposedly, Apple was considering buying them for their hardware). They were laughing and almost giddy – – I can remember Atkinsen saying "we can do that all in...
Agreed, this is one of DED's better articles ...We went down this path, a bit, in another thread -- where we discussed the possibility of using multiple Ax CPU/GPU chips to augment laptop and desktop processor and graphics capability.I think there could be significant gains in things like optical flow analysis, real-time effects rendering, codec/format conversions, etc. In other words, tailor the software to the hardware for a few, specific tasks.The question, IMO, is the...
I'm no gamer, so this is an honest question.Do you really see a return to the desktop for gaming -- once people have experienced the freedom and flexibility of almost-as-good mobile gaming?I would think that the economies of scale would drive enhancements to mobile gaming hardware/software/apps/accessories much more rapidly than on the desktop. Consider the advances in mobile phone photography and video capture, for example.
