daven said:Big picture the Apple Music efforts thus far are non-existent. They are fun little additions to Apple Music, but not the reason people subscribe. An apps documentary coming to a music service? I don't get it. Apple, please acquire Netflix. They understand new content like no one else and have the best distribution channel in the business. Take 1/4 of your war chest and solve this problem and give Apple TV the one thing it's missing.
The have the the interface and the OS, they need the content and a good gaming controller. That's the living room: games, apps, TV, movies—boom.
If they were willing to pay a ridiculous $3B for Beats then they can buy Lions Gate for $2.9B.
The other acquisition or a large minority stake Apple should look at is, Tesla.
why is Apple so afraid of change?
IMO, they need to start building iOS laptops and desktops. Why this hasn't happenned blows my mind.
The fact is 90% of the population does not need a power of an intel desktop. They just need an iOS devices that sync's seamlessly with their phone/tablet/watch.
Why isn't Apple doing this?
I'd love to replace my MacMini with an iOS desktop.
The most expensive part of most Mac's are the intel chips. Replace those $300 chips with a $50 A-series chip.
It does not have to run Mac programs, just iOS stuff.
The current iPad Pros produce equivalent or higher Geekbench scores than some of their desktop counter parts.
Here are the phones with a higher score than the iPhone7:
HTC 10 - 5.2 inches
Galaxy S7 - 5.1 inches
Sony X - 5 inches
Moto Z - 5.5 inches
S6 Plus - 5.5 inches
Sony Z5 - 5.2 inches
All are significantly LARGER than the 4.7 inch iPhone. Those phones are firmly placed in the phablet category. They will be compared to the 7+
The iPhone7 is the highest rated non-phablet phone. So yes the headline is 100% correct
The at these body sizes all the sensors are the same. In fact, the 7 Plus most likely has the same main sensor along with a lesser quality telephoto sensor.
And as for your sketchy argument, the Galaxy S6 Edge is the same size as the iPhone 6s, so there you go, 100% incorrect headline.
With that said, AI is a pro Apple site, it's ok if they lean toward Apple's side, although I do think they shouldn't do it so much that it makes Apple users look ridiculous and totally uninformed with inaccurate claims.
