Apple edits out vehicles.  Look at Apple Maps satellite imagery in New York Harbor for entire schools of Nessies swimming around.  (And check out the roadways for the ghosts of dead cars showing their spectral images!!!  I want to believe!)
I actually like this deal quite a bit. Oculus was never going to make it on their own since they couldn't even source displays in sufficient quantity to build their existing devkits, let alone ever go mainstream. In one fell swoop they've solved most of their problems and make it a zillion times more likely that their product will actually happen. I'm a huge Apple fan, but the Rift does not feel like an Apple product, and I'm sure as heck glad it didn't fall down the...
Aww, for a minute there I thought Apple had returned the Contacts sync to iCloud that they took away with the transition from MobileMe. Ever since then my wife and my contact list has been slowly diverging, sigh.
It doesn't matter what he says. He doesn't own the company anymore and thus can't promise anything. That's what selling the company means. Someone else ultimately calls the shots now as to your data privacy, and while they may delegate authority to Fadell for now, ultimately Nest is now owned by a company that gets 95% of its revenue from looking for your vulnerabilities and selling access to you to advertisers.
The biggest issue with compiling for 64-bit is that the app becomes iOS 7 only. Otherwise it's pretty easy to convert. My tiny apps converted in an hour or so, but I still release 32 bit only since I need to support older versions of iOS. (Android is interesting in comparison... Much more disparity of versions in use, but you can include the new SDK in your apps and use many of the newer APIs on older versions of the OS, something Apple rarely allows.) I do use the...
Seriously, a whole year and all they did was double the processing power, greatly improve the camera, add a fingerprint sensor, improve the battery life, add an ultra-low power always-on motion sensor, improve the recording frame rates, add China and other international LTE variants, add some colors, and still manage to release to more countries and carriers faster than ever. Slackers.
  Yes, in a couple ways.  On a HD, the less you're reading/writing, the less likely it is that a jolt could cause damage.  On an SSD, there is a finite number of writes before the cells no longer hold a charge, and this could significantly help with that if you paged a lot previously.   Some pages of memory are going to contain almost incompressible image or sound data, but others are going to be a lot of zeroes with a few small values in them. I suspect 50% is probably a...
My iPhone has been running hot and draining battery faster than usual lately, and there are no Google apps at all on it. Personally, my suspicion is with Facebook's latest Faces update, and that perhaps while people ran out to install Google's software they also tended to update that at the same time? In any case, if your iPhone is warm to the touch when you're not playing a game, double-tap the home button, hold down on the icons in the lower bar, and start closing...

Confirmed it on my iPhone 4S running iOS 6.1.3. Maybe it was going to be a linking thing where they sent you to sponsor/Wikipedia/search page for certain terms?
