 They like sending messages.  All sorts of messages are sent to various people by artificially holding up the iPhone launch. a) to Chinese companies: we can and will protect you...to a point...even if it screws you...we don't mind.b) to the Chinese people: don't be too enamored of american toys.  It's not in vogue.  Really.  You want to be good citizen don't you? Click-Clack.c) to Taiwanese companies:  we really don't mind if we screw you when we're screwing with the...
LOL.  Ten-Ten day is the official ROC holiday for the formation of the republic (they guys that lost the Chinese civiil war and now live on Taiwan).
 No.  Broadwell Y/Core M would be both faster and more useful.  Especially the 5Y70 version.  It's not as fast as a Core i7 but almost as good as a 15W TDP Core i5. The difference between the A8 and the Broadwell Y is the difference between a Core 2 Duo and a Core i5. http://hothardware.com/News/First-Actual-Intel-Broadwell-Tablet-Benchmarks-From-IDF-2014/ Moving to ARM for a desktop computer is idiocy in 2014.   In any case, it's probably just haswell that we see in any...
Honestly it wasn't quite big enough to justify the reduction in ability to fit in things. I held both mini and 6+ and the 6+ was small in comparison but didn't fit in very many things that the mini did not. It wasn't quite big enough to be iPad level of functionality.That said, if it had been available at the apple store I was at I'd have bought it anyway but it wasn't definitively better enough to go hunting for it.
Yah and android security has been a major fail.Just like DoD's mobile initiatives have largely been a major fail. Like DISAs brilliant FUBAR with MDM and only able to support BES last year.And anyone can claim they have a TS/SCI solution in the lab. Getting it actually IA approved is then hard part.Frankly the army is not the branch to look at for a clue on IT acquisition. I used to think we were the hopelessly backward branch but after looking at the DCGS debacle I'm...
Well I would have gotten the 6+ if available since I was on the fence. I asked first and since it wasn't available I went with the 6 instead.There is little difference between my 5 and 6 in terms of pocket ability. But there is also little advantage over the 5 screen wise.
I like it better now than Google maps and it's more reliable for me on my trips to soccer fields that are usually just some random and sometimes new park in a neighborhood.
I haven't done gpgpu coding but I have looked at the docs and tutorials and I agree about Cuba vs OpenCL in terms of developer support (code examples, tutorials, tools, etc). My visceral reaction was kinda like my feelings of directX vs OpenGL. Sure one is proprietary and stuck on one platform and the other multi platform but I just liked it better.
Because what you posted is bs and everyone here knows it.It's like quoting Steve about nobody reads anymore in 2008 when iBooks launched in 2010.Or quoting Steve about how tablets will fail because everyone wants keyboards in 2003.Or quoting Steve about how he wasn't convinced people want to watch video on an iPod in 2003 before launching a video iPod in 2005.And there's several more examples of Steve saying one thing when he absolutely knew what was being worked on in his...
 TSMC has a 8" wafer fab in Camas Washington with 1100 workers.  They are producing the A8 with one of their primary 12" fabs in Taiwan (Fab 14). It could be they are nosing around NY to open a new 12" advanced fab but so far it's rumors of a job fair.
