Obviously Samsung knew they didn't get the A8. I guess they are hoping that TSMC has issues like they have in the past and Apple has to return for the next process node hop.
Yah"Latest news from @Chipworks: The A8 processor was fabricated at TSMC and uses a 20 nm CMOS manufacturing process."https://mobile.twitter.com/ifixit/status/513035449913593856
 First, the industry statistics show that the industry has been growing since 2009. Second, if hardly anyone wears watches how did they sell 1.2 BILLION in 2013? Third, why on earth would you think Apple would want to enter a dying market?  There's some sandbagging by Cook.  It's just like Job's "People don't read anymore" statement in 2008 before launching iBooks in 2010. Fourth, 60% margins is what the watch industry enjoys (overall anyway).  If Apple "only" gets 40%...
Which has what to do with the incorrect assertion that not many people wear watched or the incorrect assertion that the watch market is in decline?This is like complaining in 2007 that the phone market was largely dominated by dumb phones. So what?If apple only takes 1% share as was their original phone goal that's 12M watches (half as many as all Swiss watch makers) at a $400 ASP and 60% margins.That's $4.8B revenue and $2.88B gross profit.If they take 10% of the total...
Lol. Still spouting stuff without checking are we?1.2 billion watches were sold in 2013. Swatch's revenue was $8.8B. Rolex's was $4.5B.That's a lot of watches sold for "not many people" to wear.http://www.statisticbrain.com/wrist-watch-industry-statistics/US sales were $7.2B in 2012 and up since the 2009 low.http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-watchs-time-isnt-up-2013-07-01The GPS sports watch category was estimated to grow to $1B in 2013.The global watch market was...
No, it's not about principle since they did not invade your privacy. At worst it's junk mail or an unsolicited gift that ended up in your mailbox.Perhaps you should look up what privacy means in a dictionary.
Because they are facts. It is a fact that the industry says that 5mm watches are thin and not average. It is a fact that most watches are thicker than 5mm. It is a fact that many watches called "thin" by the watch industry is thicker than 5mm.These are all fact easily confirmed by googling or simply following the links i provided.This is false. it is not "much" thicker given that it is within the average range for watches.This is false. The smaller watch is on the lower...
Given that it was a one off gift your scenario has little to do with reality. The only one that needs to engage more brain cells before posting is you.And giving everyone a free album has zero to do with privacy. If they gave you an album from your favorite band then THAT would be an invasion of privacy because somehow they know what bands you like without asking you.
And yet every watch maker and every watch site ends up providing the same guidelines (+/- 1mm) on watch thickness despite your claim these categories don't exist.It is the industry's opinion that 5mm is thin and not mine.It's like you arguing there is no industry categories for laptops and 17mm is an average laptop because you own a MBA and that 24mm (the unibody MBP) is thick while 40mm desktop replacement/uber gamer laptops are just silly.Stating that 17mm is average for...
Lol.A) industry watch thickness categories are not opinions to agree or disagree with. They just are. "5mm is thin" is simply true. "5mm is average" is simply false.B) your opinion that the apple watch is too thick is of little merit when you don't know what is considered thick or thin.
