I suspect that:Apple already has OSX Mavericks running on iPads.Apple already has iOS 7 running on Macs (both ARM and Intel).everything implemented for either OS is implemented for the other.An example of iOS running on Macs is the iOS Simulator.
Three things piqued my interest:A rather innocuous, dumb, passive device like a dock can use an intelligent device (iPhone, iPad, iMac, AppleTV, Camera, etc.) as a peripheral.The dock device doesn't necessarily need to be large or plugged into a power source.The dock device doesn't necessarily need to be physically connected to the peripheral.Below, is Apple's drawing of the dock -- large and ugly, IMO.Below that, is a picture of a StickNFind BLE beacon that can be used as...
LOL... Here's a legitimate case where Android will have more users (dupes) than iOS.
You're overthinking this!Scenario:You walk into your friendly, local butcher (candy, ice cream coffee) shop. There is a line. There is a sign next to a roll of tickets saying: "Take a number". You take ticket #2014590407Eventually, your number gets called and you buy whatever and pay with a credit card. The CC terminal is down, so they run your card through a manual terminal with a carbonless 3-part (customer, store, bank) receipt. You sign the receipt and they staple...
Wrong forum... Wrong post... Here goes... If you like your Mortician, you can keep him..Period (end of report)!
Ehhh... No! UUIDs do not necessarily identify you -- they can just differentiate you. Say, Target has acquired and assigned UUID of 1234 to all its in-store iBeacons. Target's shopping app on your iDevice listens only for iBeacons with a UUID of 1234.At the same time Target management could say: "Hey, when someone visits our store, we'd like to track him (with his permission). " One way to do this is for Target to acquire another UUID, say...
Actually, BLE beacons (not iBeacons) using CoreBluetooth (upon which Apple iBeacons protocol is built) can deliver deliver content.If you have 2 iOs 6 devices you can download the "BTLE Central Peripheral Transfer" app at:https://developer.apple.com/LIBRARY/IOS/samplecode/BTLE_Transfer/Introduction/Intro.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/DTS40012927-Intro-DontLinkElementID_2BLE is not the best vehicle for "close-location messaging system". WiFi offers better performance and less...
Really? Trust is like virginity... "Once broken, never mended".
You are correct to be somewhat concerned.Apple's iBeacons is a specific Apple implementation of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). It is as I described in my prior post, and I've included the Apple's specification of it's iBeacon API (below).However, there is more! The Apple iBeacon is a specific implementation of a lower-level API called CoreBluetooth.An app can implement both iBeacons and CoreBluetooth constructs.Conceivably, an app running on an iDevice could:listen for...
