Ironic that during the 1990s, the tech press and pundits and analysts were telling Apple to (1) license Mac OS and (2) divest its hardware business. They believed the cure-all for Apple's woes was to copy Microsoft's formula for success: it's all about the software. In fact, NeXT found success doing just that when they sold their hardware business to Canon and ported NeXTStep and WebObjects to other platforms.It seems that when Steve Jobs returned to Apple, he must have...

The cameras can also theoretically be used to project the outside world into the VR display, making AR possible.As for it being the next big thing, I'm skeptical. It could turn out to be as "big"...
This sounds much better than the Ricoh Theta, which took relatively low res photos from two 180° FOV cameras and stitched them into a spherical image. Great for creating skybox textures in 3D engines, but otherwise, Ricoh dropped the ball on making it a useful consumer format.
If you have the latest iPhoto release, you can continue to use it on Yosemite. I am still using it. I simply ignored the invite to use Photos.

If you're really paranoid about accidentally converting your iPhoto library to Photos, make sure you have a recent Time Machine backup.If you did not get the latest release of iPhoto before it was pulled from the Mac App...
You forgot IoT: those cheap single-chip computers with the memory and processing power of a MP3 player. Microsoft won't stop until everything with a CPU is infected with Windows.
Click. Aww, damn it!!!
It's like the 1980s all over again /s
You are offended by the strangest things...
