The problem is the number of photosites in the sensor.   When they are densely packed, which they are in all small sensor phones (and point-and-shoots), they generate heat.   Heat makes for noise.    All other things being equal, a 16MP sensor will have far better high-ISO (low light) performance than a 32MB sensor.     So if you increase the MP count without increasing the size of the sensor, you decrease quality.     A Nikon D1 camera from 1999 with 2.74 effective MP...
 Yes, but how does one evaluate who is best for the job?   Many employers, HR people and supervisors hire people not only on the basis of a resume and experience, but who they feel "comfortable" with - who they can relate to, even if they do that on a subconscious level.    And even though they might not think of themselves as the least bit racist, sexist or ageist, who they feel most comfortable with might be someone just like themselves.    And so the discrimination...
 While that can be imagined technically, it's not happening for several reasons:1.  The net infrastructure in the U.S. isn't robust enough.    Even with my supposed high-speed connection today, when I watch net-based services on my TV, they frequently "stutter" and that's with 1080 content.   With 4K it needs almost 4x the bandwidth. 2.  Apple doesn't control or own the content and unlike the music industry, they're unlikely to get it.    Why?   Because the content owners...
HDMI between the box and the TV.Ethernet or WiFi between the network and the box. Why would it be anything else?
 While I don't disagree with the need for power users, that is NEVER going to happen in iOS.    iOS is all about hiding file systems and the like from users.    
 But if you look at who/what dominates the TV industry, it's low-end sets.   Samsung, with it's relatively low prices in much of its line, has effectively killed both Sony and Panasonic.   Sony's current approach is at the high-end and they're pushing expensive 4K sets, but it remains to be seen whether that's going to be even remotely successful and Sony has threatened to get out of the TV business entirely.   Panasonic is no longer making plasma sets.     Now having said...
No..apps aren't good enough for TV.   The problem with apps, is that there's no unified list of all programming available.   It's a pain to switch from Netflix to  Hulu to Amazon to AppleTV offerings to an actual cable or OTA channel. It all needs to be integrated and I think Steve Jobs recognized that when he supposedly made the comment that he had licked the UI problem.
Home user who doesn't exchange documents with anyone, yes.    Business users and people who exchange files, no. I'm looking forward to an Office update, but only if Outlook email, address book and calendar syncs via iCloud.   If it doesn't do that, it's worthless.   
No, you have it backwards:  Its is the possessive form of it ( the dog licked its paw), while it's is the contraction of it is ( look, it's a dog licking its paw) or it has ( it's been too long). The apostrophe in it's never denotes a possessive. The confusion is understandable, since other possessive forms (singular nouns) do take an apostrophe + s, as in the girl's bike or the president's smile.
I think on AI, we should leave politics out of it.  Hardly anyone is ever going to change their position, so it's nothing more than verbal masturbation to comment on either the Israeli or Palestinian governments.   If Apple decided not to do business in any country where the Government has been accused of doing something terrible, they wouldn't be able to do business anywhere (including the United States).   The fact is that the more non-Israeli companies that do...
