Wow... sheer number of added buttons = 5Steve must have absolutely hated the interior of his Mercedes SL55 AMG then... that thing was FULL of buttons and controls!Ford tried to get rid of buttons and controls on one generation of its MyFord Touch system.The next generation... the buttons came back. People prefer hard-buttons for most things..
That would be roughly 766,666 iPhone produced every day.Assuming the factories run 24 hours a day... that would be 31,944 iPhones produced every hour.Or 532 iPhones produced every minute.Or almost 9 iPhones produced every second.So... in the time it took you to read this comment... 90 iPhones were just built.
I can understand Lee's unhappiness with Dre and Iovine misappropriating the sale of Beats to HTC. Maybe they did undervalue the deal. But then he did this: "Lee sold his stake in the company from 5 percent to 1.5 percent, then down to nothing." Why did he sell his share in the company? Isn't that his fault? Then... "Eight months later, Apple acquired Beats for $3 billion" Hmmmm... doesn't this sound like a bitter man who made a costly mistake?
HomeKit is "open" enough for Elgato, iDevices and other companies to use... so it's far from being a "closed" standard.But maybe the proper term in Apple's case is "licenced" standard. I'm sure Apple will maintain some sort of certification like they do with MFI.
Exactly.Whatever tasks an Apple Watch will do on day-one... I expect it will continue to do those tasks for many years.It's got sensors and a display. Those things should last a while, right?Perhaps the battery will eventually have to be replaced... but I can't imagine the entire watch being obsoleted so soon. It's basically an external display for the iPhone with the majority of the software calculations being done on the iPhone.I see no problem imagining a single Apple...
Do what for publicity?Leaking their own personal emails and employee social security numbers? Putting relationships between actors and directors in jeopardy?Here's the deal... all studios make movies that sometimes don't reach expectations. The Interview might have been destined for that category.But Sony released 20 other films in 2014 that totaled over a billion dollars domestically. So I seriously doubt Sony would wreck their own reputation and risk lawsuits from...
This commercial has been playing on TV for a while. It's been on Bank of America's Youtube channel since December 15th.I think AI was just hunting for something to post on the weekend.
Actual capacity... or user-accessible capacity?Apple says "16GB" because the iPhone has 16GB of flash storage in it. There are flash memory chips that total 16GB. I don't see the deception.It's the same for computers. A laptop says "500GB" because it has a 500GB hard drive in it. Again... I don't see the deception.You're right though... a person cannot get the full 500GB from that hard drive. They never could. Because of formatting, the operating system, recovery...
And if your son had the 32GB iPod Touch... he'd fill that up too. I think it's time to start offloading those Hyperlapse videos to a computer or something. The device should NOT be used for permanent storage... and it certainly shouldn't be your only copy.I had to do exactly this for a friend's mother. She loves her iPhone... especially the camera. 4,400 photos on her iPhone... and it was bursting at the seams. No new photos could be taken... no new apps could be...
Ok... so if they publish a paragraph or whatever on the website... would that be enough?Or will they have to actually change they way they refer to their products?I have a 32GB iPhone 5S. Although it will never allow me to save 32GB of my own files on it... I still call it a 32GB iPhone.Will Apple have to alter the descriptions of their products?Right now Apple lists the total amount of storage in the product... not the customer-usable space. If you go to the iPhone page...
