 Apple isn't going to enter the market with a dedicated camera because it's a steadily shrinking market. Pro's won't use it, and enthusiasts are happier with buttons and knobs. (Actually, sales aren't "shrinking" so much as they are falling off a 15,000-ft cliff.) If Apple dumps this tech into a phone and gains decent low-light capabilities with any kind of an optical zoom, then in 3-4 years practically no one is going to carry or even own a dedicated P&S camera. (Okay,...
Actually, what I want to see a story on is how Apple's going to appease its "Gold" customers when the next generation watch ships.    Unlike a traditional watch, this version is going to be "obsolete" within a couple of years as processors, screens, and batteries improve and evolve. What then? Just throw a $17,000 watch in the back of a drawer?
Pressure? "Anything in the price range of 500 francs to 1,000 francs ($500-$1,000) is really in danger," Mock told Bloomberg. "I do expect an Ice Age coming toward us."
 Too bad they didn't do the same thing with the automobile. Just think of all of the ways someone could act irresponsibly or, ever worse, commit a crime and then be miles away in minutes.  Yep, too many problems, and people are way, way too stupid to come up with solutions. Best to ban them altogether.
 Ah, the infamous "but" clause...

 Objective-C was showing it's age and many of the recent improvements added to it were more or less "bolted on". There were also some core assumptions built in, as well as a lack of support for "native" number and string types, that more or less prevented any further improvement without breaking existing software and code. To go with your car analogy, there may not have been "quantum" advances in automotive technology over the last 30 years (OC was created in early...
 Ummm... in Swift the best way to do that would be to return a tuple. func myFunc() -> (s:String?, e:NSError?) { ... } let result = myFunc()if let s = result.s {    ...} else if let e = result.e {    ...} You'd have to assign to a variable and test out the union result type anyway, so the unwrapping logic is basically a wash. It's also a much cleaner implementation than the standard iOS error handling tactic of doing: NSError *error;NSString *result = [myFunc: something...
I don't think running your company into bankruptcy ranks as "performance"...
 Well, I could say that you can't solve a problem until you've diagnosed exactly what the problem might be. (grin) But a solution? At the time I suggested that an Android phone maker differentiate on hardware. You could, for example, do the best phone/camera combo out there and look to serve camera enthusiasts. (As Nokia did.) Or you could hook up with Amazon and try license the Kindle technology, and make the very best phone/e-book reader combination. (Dedicated page turn...
