agree with all of you unhappy with the current ATV UI. the small candybar IR remote is terrible, hard to use accurately. and the iOS Remote app is crude, still a cursor trackpad UI instead of simple app buttons interface. can't believe both have not been significantly improved after all these years.   so i use those just for Netflix and nothing else. too much trouble.   whereas the AirPlay UI is great - simple, and built directly in to iOS media apps, including third...
well this year it's not too hard to guess the new iPhone/iPad models and key features:   - a sapphire screen iPhone 6s, otherwise largely unchanged except for some spec bumps. - a larger screen 6x (whatever it's lettered), super thin like the iPod touch, but otherwise like the 5s with Touch ID. - a 6c largely unchanged from the 5c except for spec bumps. - new iPad and iPad mini models with Touch ID and spec bumps.   the pundits will all say "meh," but consumers will...
it's clear to anyone with a brain that IDC, Gartner, and SA "cook the books" to make their paying clients look good and badmouth Apple at every opportunity since they know Apple will never pay their bribes. just like it is clear that Samsung constantly lies about its sales figures. but none of the media - tech or traditional - call them out for any of it. they've all devolved to regurgitators and bullshitters (aka pundits), while checking facts is real work. and...
Open GL Is about games. you can expect all platforms to routinely update to its new generations in cycle since games are big money makers for all. just like they update to the latest bluetooth and wifi standards in cycle - high end hardware first. those are cross platform standards, and yes, they "progress". but 64 bit is not, you got an apples and oranges argument. Android doesn't need 64 bit to achieve Google's business goals, except bragging rights if that matters....
well we know 32 bit is good enuff for Samsung's second rate version. we'll see if they can improve it with that constraint.
chips do not = business strategy. there is no "natural progession" in markets manipulation. Google's agenda is based on other factors, not chips.
you don't "see" that 64 bit power making Toch ID work so smoothly or the Camera app producing excellent pix for us photo dummies, but it's there just the same.
exactly. which is why we may never see 64 bit Android OS. but Chrome OS ... ah yes. many think Google's future is based on Chrome, not Android.
64 bit chips do not = 64 bit Android. and why assume Google will ever produce a full 64 bit version of the Android OS and in-house apps as Apple has already achieved? Google is aiming for the broadest possible Android distribution with a lowest common denominator hardware and cost requirement for OEM's and telcos, with less fragmentation if possible. a new Android branch of 64 bit high end products serves none of those goals. and as you note the real value of 64 bit...
whatever, you miss my point: both the Fire and the Surface were hyped by many in tech media to become huge sellers that would challenge Apple's iPad and the iOS ecosystem. well, they didn't. not even close. instead both are duds in terms of sales. but you can't find those hypsters now owning up to their dud punditry.
