Who said anything about monitoring every second? It's as simple as setting a password on purchases and not giving it to your kid. Doesn't even take any technical savvy, just common sense. Same principal as don't give your ATM card and pin to your teenager. There's no way a bank is going to give money back to bonehead parents that do that. Why should Apple treat them any different.And for your information, I have kids and little cousins and nieces and nephews. I have first...
not that i'm defending the Surface Pro but changing the headline to... "Microsoft sells out of Surface Pro, just like the Xbox did in 2001" totally changes the perspective. Just saying.
Just like with "the social network" and "notorious", you have to know it's a movie first. Made to entertain. Certain things are going to be changed and/or exagerated to make it more interesting to watch by the "average" movie goer. Neither this film nor the other are going to be accurate. Though this does seem a bit more out there.That's screwed up, man.Lay off Woz. He was just as important to Apple as was Jobs. Also played a key role in the home computer boom in general....
Of course Apple is considering it. They'd be foolish not to. But that doesn't mean it'll definitely happen. And guaranteed it won't be for at least 6-10 years. ARM just can't compete on performance with x86 (yet). And they surely wouldn't be hasty about the transition. The switch from PPC to x86 was pretty tough, switching to ARM is sort of going back (i.e. RISC to CISC to RISC). Every single piece of software would need to be rewritten, and if the developer is...
Totally impractical, but doable. They'd have full QA control of the whole process start to finish. Also, definitely would cut down on all these leaks we've been seeing lately.Does Apple actually manufacture anything themselves? Not trying to troll, I know that's pretty much the industry standard... just wondering.I would gladly pay an extra 10% if their stuff said "Designed and Manufactured in California" on the back. Hell, they could even eat that 10% and still be the...
I jailbreak my iPad for precisely 2 things:The 5-line keyboard http://www.ipadforums.net/attachments/jailbreak-applications-tweaks/10748d1330978571-5-row-keyboard-ipad-image-1933232229.jpgAnd Activator http://www.ijailbreak.com/cydia/activator-1-5-8-cydia-tweak/The other little things I can get are neat but I wouldn't miss them.Not all jailbreakers are pirates and hackers.PS: Quasar is an awesome looking app but not worth $10 to me so I can't vouch for it.
You do realize that China still has that "1 child per family" law, right?
Labor is where China shines. This is just the truth of it. But manufacturing can and must be done domestically. The Prez said as much. So, those A5 chips made in Texas = good... but TSMC is in Taiwan. That's not so good. The solution? Apple builds their own foundries in Cupertino ( or anywhere else in the US.) Win/Win for all.l
I don't care what platform you're on, whether it be Android or IOS, Windows or OSX. Don't open strange emails, and don't run/install random programs. Some OSes may be more secure than others, but there's not such thing as 100% secure. Stay vigilant and you'll be better off.This message brought to you by your friendly, neighborhood IT guy... and the letter M. ...Off-topic...Not arguing your points about YouTube, but the above statement I don't agree with. The average person...
I tried to use it for a couple weeks at work (I'm in IT so it's my job to test these things out.) Not 100% of the time, just too much stuff to reinstall to get me fully up and running. But I'd say maybe 30% of my day was on Win8.If you stick to the handful of bulitin Metro native apps, it's OK. I can see Metro working on a touch screen but on a laptop, it doesn't make much sense to me. The problem is Metro apps are all full screen so multitasking is a pain. Then you get to...
