I, for one, would like more pixels. I never print my pictures. I just like to zoom in and see more detail. The thing I love most about digital photography is that cameras capture more detail than you saw when you took the photo. I love finding little details like a bug hiding behind the petal of a flower. More pixels means you can crop out these details and still have an image with a decent amount of resolution. You can say I am wrong but this iPhone user wants more...
Too bad the resolution has not improved. It has remained fixed at 8 megapixels since the 4s. That's six different phone models with the same resolution: 4s, 5, 5c, 5s, 6 and 6 plus. I realize that image quality matters more than resolution but resolution also matters. They could have squeezed in 12 megapixels by now and still had excellent quality. One other problem they need to solve: The phone should be able to take landscape photos and videos when it is held in...
Those pages are remarkably information content free. They don't tell you much beyond what was covered in the videos. Start with the top question: What can you do with the Apple Watch when there is no iPhone nearby? Those pages don't explain this at all. What they do say is contractionary. It says it has apps but it also says it requires an iPhone. Apps on the iPhone can run without a connection to another a device. Can apps on the Apple Watch do the same?These are not...
This Apple event left me with more questions than answers: What can the Apple Watch do when it is not connected to an iPhone? Can it be paired with an iPad Air (and why the heck not?) Could it get GPS location from a Bluetooth GPS receiver the way an iOS device can? How does an iWatch authenticate purchases (it has no touch ID). What can and can't an iWatch app do? How does it communicate with an iPhone if not by WiFi (Bluetooth bandwidth is limited)? Does that magnetic...
We wish we could say more to Siri.
I get so many security warnings now, like when I restore one of my many iOS devices that causes a cascade of notifications on the other devices, that I pretty much have to ignore them all. That's the problem with security warnings. If you send too many, people are simply annoyed by them. If someone ever did try to hack an account, it would be lost among all the other BS notifications. When was the last time you actually paid attention to a car alarm?
@InteliusQ You owned cheese grater Mac Pro didn't you? As someone with hairy wrists that concept, as pretty as it is, terrifies me! Speaking of which, I am starting to get stage fright by proxy for Tuesday. With all the talk about Apple getting into fashion, I am getting flashbacks to that horrendous Samsung Unboxed event when they thought they could put on a 1950s style musical and get away with it. What experience does Apple really have with fashion, really? They have...
I don't even know.. WTF? Are you just trolling?
iOS itself has a major flaw that will prevent the iWatch from having long battery life: When the screen is off, apps are forced into background mode and are severely limited in what they can do. For example if you want to stream video from your iPhone to your AppleTV, the iPhone must remain fully on with the screen lit and the app in the foreground. If you click the screen lock button the video stops. You can't even play the audio portion of a conference video through your...
The Apple approach is a lot less efficient than what Google is working on. Apple takes the image from the camera and attempts to identify 2D image markers. I would guess that these are things like rectangular signs. iOS 8 already has the ability to recognize rectangles in images (if you know their proportions). The problem is that in many places there won't be any good markers to search the database for. Google uses 3D scanning. They generate a cloud of 3D points around...
