Confirmed...it's been yanked.
One more comment to Applewellian...if you think that Apple isn't going to address the file system issue, then you haven't been paying attention on that front. We'd be using ZFS by now were it not the IP issues involved in using it. And it also involves the central problem of a critical piece of tech that Apple does not control. And it was made for the data center, not for mobile devices. My opinion is that Apple decided to punt on ZFS and start over from the ground up,...
Applewellian's argument is sound. Apple top brass may not be happy with Samsung in general, but they won't let that get in the way of pragmatic business decisions. I do think that TSMc will eventually end up making A-series chips for Apple if nothing else because Apple (and supply chain guru Tim Cook specifically) hates to put all his eggs into the basket of a single source. That's Supply Chain 101. Also, whenever that happens, that foundry would most likely be in the...
I have a Gen 2 and a Gen 3, both on wired Ethernet using static IP addresses. Both took a long time, but eventually began showing the screen saver, in which you thought everything was ok. But if you pressed the menu button, both units went to a black screen and refused to wake up. Cutting power to the units got them working again, seeing the "new features" screen on reboot and everything has been ok since.
 1.  Google didn't use JavaME.  They rolled their own.  That takes time.  Not to mention the development time in building a phone, then changing course and revamping the design when the iPhone launched. 2.  I could say that OS X wasn't designed for a phone either.  I'm sure the Rhapsody teams were really focused on mobile in 1997.  And Java is still used in servers because server architectures are not homogeneous.  You might need to run on POWER (AIX), SPARC (Solaris),...
 It's pretty much true.  NeXTSTEP is the grandfather of iOS (with OS X being the father).  iOS, OS X and NeXTSTEP all use Obj-C as the primary programming language, had similar kernel structures, I/O and system calls.
I also think that this article is terrible on the technical details. DED claims that would be too hard to do, fraught with compromises and ultimately not practical. What is fails to realize is that Oracle/Sun has been offering 32 and 64 bit versions of the Java JVM for years now. Recently I had a customer who was having serious problems running their enterprise middleware software stack. The recommendation was to change from the 64 bit JVM from the 32 bit one since...
 First, all of the shipped apps by Apple for iOS7 are supposed to be 64 bit.  But the real beneficiary early on for 64 bit performance is probably the camera app and the related logic in the A7 chip for the image processor.  I'm still carrying a 3 year old iPhone 4 (soon to be upgraded to the 5s) and I've seen the cameras for my mother's 4s and my wife's 5.  Both are much better than mine but the burst mode stuff for the 5s camera that is looking at every image at 10 fps,...
Updated so far:   Mid 2007 Macbook Pro Early 2008 Macbook "unibody" Early 2008 iMac 2013 Macbook Air "Haswell"   No problems so far.  My wife reports the MBA updated very quickly.  The older machines took several minutes. :(
  Of course, some of us are old enough to remember Sherlock doing this in the OS 9 days. :)
