You misunderstood Mario's post. He said that you may use Xcode 6.3 to develop code for Mavericks. This is absolutely correct. He did not say you can install and run Xcode 6.3 under Mavericks.Xcode 6.3 requires Yosemite as its host. However, its targets include many older versions of OS X. To the best of my knowledge, Xcode and its predecessors have always worked this way. As a developer, you should understand that this is a win-win. Mavericks software developed on Xcode...
Why should he be? Despite the assertions of "some" that space gray watches look cheap, the overwhelming number of reports are that Watches look incredible in the metal.
Like the member that you are supporting in this thread, you are just plain wrong. The same biological laws that govern single-cell organisms also govern human beings--and all life in between.It is interesting that you referenced the primordial soup. Although the primordial soup is the current best theory of how life on this planet got its start, evolution is not contingent on the primordial soup. Neither does the notion of a primordial soup necessitate evolution. The fact...
It is not clear about how many things you are mistaken, but Apple phones, Apple Watches, and evolutions certainly make the list.You are absolutely and totally wrong about evolution. At the heart of your misunderstanding of evolution that you seem to believe that evolution is the explanation of the development of human beings and that the fossil record its only proof.Well, evolution--also known as Natural Selection--explains the development of all life on Earth from the...
The fact is that Apple did fix pre-Yosemite versions of OS X. The fix is free. The fix is OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite.We are all free to accept the fix or to reject it. If you reject it, however, then it is on you. The fact that you may have an excuse for rejecting the fix notwithstanding.
Obviously, Apple has fixed costs--research, engineering, marketing, factory construction, and such like. Salaries, wages, raw materials, transportation, warranty costs, etc. are variable costs. As there has been no Watch repaired or replaced on warranty, only fixed costs associated with AppleCare come into play.Apple has spent--perhaps invested is a better word--lavishly on the fixed costs. It has reinvented parts of the watch that we didn't think needed reinvention....
There is a critical flaw in your analysis. During the final months of his life, Steve Jobs worked closely with Apple personnel to map out product plans for the five (5) years to follow. This means that the Watch was conceived and largely developed on Jobs's watch. Pardon the pun.
You are correct. Some configurations of the 42 mm Watch Edition are priced at $12,000 rather than $15,000. These have a margin of only $9000 each or 300%. You are also correct that you said less than 10 million sales. However, you did not specify how many sales less than 10 million. Forgive me for rounding 9,999,999 to 10 million.Is this what you have been reduced to? After all of your caterwauling about the certain and dramatic failure of the Watch, you now quibble over...
So say that 10 million Watch sales will make it Apple's first major failure since 1997? I had always assumed that the UK had an excellent education system. You should not have slept through your mathematics classes. The Watch is not a MacBook Air. MacBook Airs are sold on very thin margins. Each Watch--from the Sport to the Edition--will be sold at crazy margin. The 42 mm yellow gold Edition, for example, contains 69 grams of gold alloy. The price of gold today is...
You don't get out much. The fault that you find in the Watch Edition is easy to find in any premium watch. The Roger Dubuis Excaliber Skeleton Double Flying Tourbillon RDDBEX0395 will hit you for £235,500. This is somewhat north of your average Rolls Royce or Bentley. Do you believe that the Roger Dubuis watch has anywhere near the material needed to justify its premium over the super luxury sedan?We don't have to go to precious metals. Take a look at your a stainless...
