IMO, the most significant [Apple] announcements in 2014 (so far):ApplePayNew Openness of Apple and Developer SDKsAppleWatchiPhone 6IBM Apple dealSwift / Xcode 6You could argue between 3 and 4 -- the iP6 is the lubrication ($ and scale) that make it all work -- but, I believe that iWatch will have a greater impact over the long term -- making it ridiculousy easy to buy things with ApplePay.And, we ain't seen nothin' yet!
Exactly!I posted elsewhere, that a friend got a new cc from BofA/Visa. As an incentive, they gave her $200 immediate cashback when she charged a total of $1,500 -- a 13% reward!Consider, that it was a reward for processing insecure transactions (many were card-not-present) ... and associated risks. But, with TouchID, iP6 and ApplePay -- the risk goes to almost nothing.I suspect that these cc/banks will wake up and offer incentives (subsidies?) for customers to buy and...
So, the cheer changes from:to:
Dumb question???These A8 chips (and A8X) are very inexpensive compared to Intel chips. Would anything be gained by using 2, or even 4 A8s instead of a single multicore Intel chip? Isn't that what Intel does on its Xeons?
No ... That'd be me ...
If you look a gift horse in the mouth, and detect the scent of ginger -- you're at the wrong end of the horse.
"so your point is not valid (nor is simply holding a phone considered rude anywhere I've ever been)."Apparently, you live in the phone in hand, always connected world depicted in this video below ...I, truly feel sad for you and your acquaintances ... Johnny we never got to know ye ...
For the AppleTV, games, HomeKit server, HomeServer.For iPads, IBM Big Data, 4K video manipulation, drawing tablet/CAD accessory to Macs ...
I think we'll see something like an A8X for the iPads and AppleTV. Likely this chip could access more RAM -- say up to 8GB.Supposedly, Apple has a major deal with Micron for a stacked RAM based on Silicon on Sapphire. The advantages to this are less leakage == better performance == less power requirement == smaller, more dense packaging.There is also some newer RAM tech that allows fewer transistors/circuits on RAM.I suspect that IBM and Apple have some amazing uses for...
Here ya' go ...
