 And yet there were still workstations that shipped with less than 1MB RAM.  Like the mentioned Fortune workstation.  Really?  Which floating point co-processor on the Sun-2?  And in any case even IF that the 68010 Sun-2 shipped with a co-processor it does not prove that EVERY 68K workstations shipped with a co-processor which includes the original 68000 CPU using your rather lame excuse.  Which has nothing to do with proving the assertion that "NOT A SINGLE" workstations...
1982 - Sun-1 shipped with 68K and 256KB stock. Upgradable to 2 MB1983 - Fortune 32:16 - SYS 7 Unix, 68K and 256 KB stock There were more...especially obscure ones like the Fortune.  In 1984-1985 I recall helping with a printer driver that could collate long documents on a weird branded 68K workstation with very wimpy stats.  It was an all-in-one like the Mac running AT&T unix.  If it had 1MB RAM I'd have been surprised.  It looked like an oversized terminal. And personal...
You are far better off buying the rx100II for $200 more since it also has live view via wifi and no lag when using it as a camera.
 It wont double the battery life but it could enable some kind of persistent activity without killing the battery so long as there was light.  I have a Logitech solar keyboard that replaced my apple keyboard with 2 AAs.  That runs the BT module in the keyboard on nothing more than the ambient light in my room that only gets indirect sunlight in the day and a desk lamp at night. Even 4-5W can do a lot.  Enough to power a smaller rear LCD, touchscreen and some low level of...
 DDR4 will be much faster than DDR3 and you will see an impact on performance.  This would mean that the speed increase is not "truly pointless".  No.  Your statement was: Either way there is a physical fact that you can not significantly speed up RAM subsystems with socketed devices. This is false.  A 5-10% improvement between socketed and non-socketed DDR3 will be eclipsed by the speed improvement by going to DDR4.  No, it doesn't because that tuning doesn't imply that...
 Yeah, they increased sales by 12.9% because the top-end smartphone market is totally saturated.  Mkay.  And using your numbers if samsung sold 100M S3 and Note 2s and then sold 100M S4 and Note 3s then they didn't grow their share of the top-end smartphones at all. Samsung's protestations that the top-end market is saturating and therefore SGS4 sales were lower than expected is belied by the 12.9% increase in iPhone sales. Apple continues to increase their overall mobile...
 Yes they do…I was just pointing out that just having on sensor PDAF doesn't always mean it's faster than a good CDAF implementation.  A good PDAF implementation should/will win over a good CDAF…at least when there is enough light anyway.
 They bought Fingerworks in 2005 and had been submitting multitouch patents ever since.  Of course not evert such patent has made it to product but Apple will telegraph through acquisitions, patent submissions and other strategic moves.  They hide it as well as they can but some things, at least in hindsight, were obvious precursor moves to enable a product later on. I think the key is not to look at these patents just in the context of the current products (which they are...
 Given the fact that we have faster and faster RAM DIMMS every few years means this statement is categorically false. The DDR spec goes from 100Mhz socketed DDR-200 (aka PC-1600) with 10 ns cycle times to 200Mhz DDR-400 (aka PC-3200) with 5ns cycle times. DDR4 is coming this year and much faster than DDR3 and DDR4 is obviously NOT not soldered on to the motherboard.  AMD is supporting DDR4 this year as is Intel with Haswell-E. What you can't do with DIMMs is so tightly...
 Mac sales are always dominated by the MBA and iMac.  This is nothing new.  Nor is there any indication that the mini is "really hurting" beyond the usual "man, they're gonna have to update this soon so I'm going to wait before I buy" issues at the end of every product cycle.   As far as Apple is concerned if they sell more iMacs instead of Mini's this is not a big problem.
