Fell to 55% Globally
The fact one company has 55% of the global market is pretty amazing considering how many others are fighting hard for market share with cheaper alternatives. For a single company to have more than 20% of phones/tablets is a massive achievement, whoever they are.
Re: Prior art?
That someone demonstrated wireless power transfer does not mean a specific implementation is not patentable. For instance you might use directional beaming based on tracking the device location, to greatly improve the maximum charging distance.
The article title is deliberately misleading, this is nothing like what Nokia are doing - for once this sounds like a proper patentable idea and the issue is with the specific other company named.
Re: Oh no!
It's just a shame that most people talking about Adobe's 'cruddy software' have never actually done any serious development in it. Flex/AS3 and Adobe's toolset for it is actually a really nice development setup, speaking as a programmer myself, and FAR more portable than HTML5 is going to be for a few years.
Also - how come we bash Adobe for being buggy and dangerous, but nearly all the exploits are Windows-only?
Re: Looks nice, but horrible to use
Love the bedroom trolls who looked at my link precisely long enough to see it was pro-Surface, closed the page and hit "downvote" without either reading the article or ever having used the device for themselves.
And these are the people who call others "sheep". The irony of trying to be cool by hating 'the right things' is wonderful.
It could be a black hole.
I'm sure Mr. Hitler thought similarly about the Jews.
>>It's just sad fantasy, built on desire for a sense of superiority. We are 'sheeple' for not believing it, and their egos are fed by being privy to the secret knowledge.
And that's different from Linux/Android zealots how?
Re: They are doing it wrong these Pedophile's
Pedophilia is the new black?
Re: People who
So you define words as "sounding very similar" because they start with the same sound "peed"? Presumably every word ending in -phile should similarly be removed?
Re: As had been said... WTF Java?
Seriously Arthur, if you're thinking "a neuron class would be good" then you're reallllly not the person to be making criticisms over the software chosen.
The VM doesn't impact scaling, there are JVMs which can span multiple PCs for instance.
Re: Are you sure?
Isn't it 1 in 9 men over their lifetime?
We've already had half-decent phones using x86 (haven't we?)
It's basically an ultra-ultrabook so by that logic the fact it costs a lot is unsurprising, that's a lot to pack into a tiny device. So I agree with your argument, but can't see it being ideal for most people. But then this is proof-of-concept stuff.
Re: Let's see now...
Typical Linux user - cheap and sees nothing wrong with having to travel with a bulky backpack at all times. Howard from Fresh Meat (Google it or whatever Google rip-off tool you people use these days).
The thing I don't get is why it doesn't come with a keyboard-cover as standard when it's clearly aimed at business use.
Re: "the full office experience"
Access is used all over the shop for small applications and internal projects, and is entirely suitable for that.
Anyway, "a far cry from the latest iPad's 9.7-inch, 2048-by-1536 Retina display". Who cares? Nobody was complaining about 1080p resolution tablets before iPad3.
Email up to 10Gb - not really
You can email a 10Gb file once surely, then your drive is full because you'd have to remember to delete it - doesn't Google add every gdoc you open (even using their web viewer for .doc attachments) to your drive automatically?
Goldenshower more like.
There's really no reason to make life so miserable for those in jail
Too right. Give them the vote, PS3, iPads, Sky and why not beer on Fridays too.
Re: Scary crap from the states... NOT surprised
>>I'm glad I'm not part of that era where insecure human beings had to intimidate other insecure human beings just to get a foot-hold on the world
You're not? Sounds like a typical school or internet forum.
Re: " Apple will reap what they have sown."
It must so hurt people like you when Apple continue to pile in the billions for their well-reviewed 'mediocre products'.
No they don't. As Hawking says in ABHOT, you wouldn't even know you'd crossed the event horizon.
Re: Does not compute?
So you're not target market then are you. The fact THEY are just copying an image across is irrelevant, the typical buyer will spend how ever many hours it takes to download/install/configure Linux.
Of course if you want a specific setup it's not for you but if someone wants a Linux dev-box, $50 is a good deal especially if they are not an expert Linux-er...
And as for you charging $300/hr, yeah right.
Re: They are giving the middle finger to microsoft at last!
As mentioned, creating and testing the image will have taken a fixed amount of time. At least as much as Windows, and fact probably more, but split over far fewer units sold.
Someone remind me... once you're beyond the event horizon you can never get back but does that also mean you can't escape getting closer and closer, or could you enter into orbit of the singularity inside the EH?
Re: What happens if two black holes collide?
Define 'meet'. Isn't that the same as 'collide'?
Re: Does not compute?
It's a niche product they have to put more time into per unit (R&D overhead / number of units). They might also anticipate higher support costs.
You're paying someone $50 to set it up for you, how much do you value your time?
Re: "Time for a rethink" suggests Dr. Karl
What happens if two black holes collide?
What exactly is wrong with nuking the moon? It makes more sense than setting it off on Earth, which is what we actually did.
Although, would a nuke work as well with no atmosphere... you need matter to create a shock wave.
Re: The standard model?
Yeah you get all the fermionic goodness of the Standard Model but with the special WIMP expansion set for free.
