I agree. Plus, it will not let you use laptop's screen together with external monitor.I'd find horizontal solution, where you slide laptop into fixed ports' connectors, or you slide connectors into fixed laptop, much more preferable. Something like what HP did with new dock for their Elitebook 840 and 850 ultrabooks.
I cannot see a point of ARM Windows hardware when you can get comparable performance, size and battery life from latest Atoms, while keeping full x86 compatibility.I wouldn't be surprised if MS switched Surface Mini from RT to x86 and is waiting for Intel's Broadwell parts to be available. Or they might be redesigning it for existing Intel parts.
Looking that way, a lot of things shouldn't exist. Including US, Australia and New Zealand.
To my knowledge, consoles are already enjoying low level APIs in their development tools, not only current generation but also previous gens. That's why Phil Spencer (Xbox boss) already stated that Xbox owners should not expect much from DX12 on XBO - there will be some improvements but nothing earth shattering, because consoles are basically already there. PC gaming is the one to benefit from DX12 most, and considering that gaming on Windows PC was/is one of holly grails...
Put ignore list, or make user choose in settings if he wants to make his device permanently visible (with confirmation pop up).I'm with TS on this one. One of major reasons why I prefer ThinkPad Tablet to iPad is exactly that - easy access to other devices in my home network.
WP platform is still catching up, on average. Core features are mostly there and executed quite well, which provides good foundation for further development... but platform is still short of some relevant 3rd party apps, if not more.That everyone borrows from everyone else, is simple fact of life. It is also the best way for technology to progress. Why would you reinvent wheel from scratch, if you can take what is already there and further improve on that? MS and Apple...
That's possible. I don't know how Android is doing it, I'm not using Android. Re WP8.1, there seem to be some context awareness, but I don't know how deep does it go, or how efficient it is. WP8.1 is not officially out, after all - I'm playing with Developers Preview, and it is also still work in progress - there were already two chunky updates for it, since it was made available for developers.
Is it confirmed that every iPhone that will receive iOS8 will have this (and other new) feature enabled, though. My good old 3Gs was receiving updates all the way to iOS6, but not all iOS6 features were enabled on it.Regardless. OP's point, I believe, is that they all borrow ideas from one another, no saints there. In that light, none of them should be throwing stones.
Hmm... actually he does.WP8.1 does not predict words before you start typing, but as soon as you start, it offers options for your first word, and once you have your first word done, it offers options for next word before you start typing it... and so on.It works well, but I find it quicker to start typing next word and selecting from much narrower range of options, than checking if word I want to type is pre-predicted. Especially that WP8.1 can give more than 3 options,...
We live in strange times.Is WhatsApp worth $19 billion? And yet.I'm not worried about price, but about direction. Are we going to see iPhones and iPads featuring much more prominently in rap music videos, together with Beats headphones, bling rings and chains... and some extra swearing?I'd be much happier if Apple purchased a bit less exposed but better value for the money headphones brand, and got music streaming from some less exposed streaming service as well. Until TC...
