Too bad it got nope'd.  This would have been welcome.
  Well, yah...that's kinda as designed to benefit only the Apple ecosystem.  Apple's not really into providing cross platform solutions except as stopgaps for their own strategic needs *cough*Safari for windows*cough*.   Given that iCloud syncing for Core Data may be flakey and only document synching is stable I'd go with Dropbox integration first anyway...
That's kinda a shame because where the money is app devs must follow.  I dislike freemium.
  Given that the mini was released in 2005 and updated form factor in 2010 it's a wonder that you don't think that the iPhone, being a whole 2 years younger, isn't also a stagnate [sic] platform given that the concept hasn't changed in a while now either.    Gee...the MBP must be an even more stagnate [sic] platform too given the laptop concept has been around since the 80's.    Ow.  Rolling your eyes really hard hurts.   For everyone that doesn't use the GPU heavily the...
No, it's not simple.Yes, it costs a lot.Yes, it takes time.On the other hand the single biggest risk is SoC supply. Apple has plenty of money so that tens of millions to mitigate supply risk is worthwhile. Also, while Apple may not have a full team spun up on intels tools they've been working with intel for a while and certainly Intel has the expertise and manpower if they desired to get it done.Personally, I still think that if intel agrees to make A7 for Apple they're...
Apple probably "needs" Intel as much as Intel "needs" Apple.  As in not really but there are a lot of advantages if they cut a deal.     Apple needs a reliable supplier not named Samsung.  There are none better than Intel.   Intel needs a significant design win for Atom.  There are none better than Apple.   Intel doesn't want to fab ARMs but may near term to get a 14nm Atom design win on the iPad or iPhone.   Apple doesn't want Atom but a couple years at...
  Ignoring for the moment that the plural of anecdotal isn't data, what it shows more is that a large portion of Android devices are not being used as smartphones which is why some app developers are seeing a majority of 4.x sales despite a majority of the market running an OS older than ICS.    Folks are still making new Gingerbread phones in 2013 although typically for the developing...
  That's the problem.  You need to target a fairly old OS version to remain compatible with a larger majority of handsets.  54% is still 2.3 or older.    http://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html
  Except they can't.   They cannot see and use the core code without running into Google's OHA restrictions as shown by Acer/Alibaba.  Meaning you can fork but none of the major manufacturers are allowed to make handsets for you.   They can modify their source to a point until they run into OHA restrictions as shown by Acer/Alibaba.  Meaning you can fork but none of the major manufacturers are allowed to make handsets for you.   They can leave out Google ecosystem to a...
  No, they wanted to use their OWN ecosystem and not Google's.  All they wanted was a solid handset manufacturer with a half decent brand.
