Collective IP acquisitions I would think are, except in extenuating circumstances, for defensive purposes. My $0.02...
For the time being, BridgeCo appears to be the only game in AirPlay Town... But nothing lasts forever. If they cared to borrow a leaf from Apple's own iPad playbook (?) it would make more sense to start off with a more aggressively-placed, cheaper price point to make it that much steeper a catch-up curve for the eventual competition.
From the outset, Light Peak / Thunderbolt has always looked like a high-end solution for video and audio heavy lifting in its current usage. As usual, with the progress of technology and the kick-in of economies of scale, costs will drop and the real benefits to users (and profits to vendors) will come with commoditisation. 10GbE and 100GbE seem like unattainable consumer bandwidth ranges with no infrastructure or applications supporting them today, but one can guarantee...
Spot on, Prof!What R&D requirement is there for what is essentially a Zero Configuration technology?Not content with passing on the entire chip cost to the user, the vendors appear to be simply attempting to cash in heavily on the "Apple device users are willing big-spender saps" mythos to carve out huge profits.Just wait for the outrage when independent experts like iFixit and iSuppli start to tear down the components and costs thereof, especially in comparison to DLNA...
Easier said than done. In the mid- to long-term however, Apple needs to rid itself of "knock-off Nigel" parasitic vendor-manufacturers like Samsung.
There's only so much innovation that can be squeezed into any particular category of device, as witness the current stagnation on the PMP front (although the iPod Touch may beg to differ on that).However, if the iPhone 4's sudden focus-switch onto hardware (retina display, thin form factor, cameras, battery etc) is anything to go by, Apple's follow-up with a mega software blitz, the details of which we are possibly on the verge of come the WWDC early next month, could be...
That's just the trick about "fabricated facts", frequently used in politics (mainly on the Right Wing). Repeat a lie frequently enough and it becomes the truth...
There's an App for that. See my Magic Packet entry in the thread above.
You guys obviously never heard of the Magic Packet used by Wake On LAN technology, which is built into most modern PC's. Rather than taking even the minuscule energy hit leaving your MacBook on while Apple TV is operational, you can let both devices go to sleep and wake up when you require them to.And yes, there's an app for that. Actually several, my favourite in the App Store being Scany The cool thing about MacBooks is that you don't require an Ethernet connection to...
Actually, their change of heart comes from the fact that SOFTWARE is their main business. Apple and Google, like Apple and Microsoft, are ORTHOGONAL rivals at best; by that is meant that while Apple is essentially a hardware vendor that uses its own software to enhance its saleability, Google and Microsoft are in the main software companies that profit from licensing or advertising deals off their software. Nexus, Google TV and Zune/X-box/Kinect reflect their efforts to...
