Re: Or to put it another way
depends on what you call "up to date" just cause its the newest OS doesn't mean its up to date tech cause in older versions of phones apple disabled features to try to force users to updating. Yea they make bs claim the older hardware can't do the work but in the end that is nothing more then isheep BS.
" when Judge Koh ruled that the proceedings weren't going to wait to see if one of Apple's patents, covering scrolling and bouncing of a user-interface object on a touchscreen, might be ruled invalid."
gotta love when judge and jury is bought and paid for years ahead of time.
no anti-virus maker could say yes to these questions. it would be career suicide as they say for the company.
'proud to be a FORCE FOR GOOD in the world'
yet they constantly sue competition in court using completely bogus patents that should never been granted in the first place, then turn around and whine when another company uses their patents to protect them self.
Re: Ummm, this isn't new...
reason is everyone thinks mac os x is perfect and has 0 flaws in it so its its easy to blame plugin like flash for what is clearly a problem in apple's OS. When talking about security record, funny how few people point to apple's pretty bad one as well, Flaw is found and they get fixed code within a day of flaw being known world wide and it took them 2 months before they release the patch.
Re: "serves them right for stealing job's like they do"
their gov is just corrupt to the point makes the US gov look like choir boys.
"thanks to an ugly environment in China and continuing weakness in the company's hardware division."
From the images I seen from china, Ugly environment is a bit of an understatement. When your rivers are redder then the register logo and a bunch of other colors, throw on top of it their major city's during the day can't even see half a km cause how thick the pollution is. Yea china is pretty screwed but serves them right for stealing job's like they do.
Yea NPE Patent trolls and Apple are 2 sides of the same coin. Both are patent trolls but in reality apple hasn't done anything since 2010 cept their normal year updates which are barely even updates anyway.
Even Apple won't get away with selling a tv for 2-3 times what rest the makers are. Yes that is what Apple WOULD do, just to keep their profits where they want them. Most tv makers lose money, only a few even make money and then its only a little bit.
Welcome to what EVERYONE already knows about.
How long does it take to Sue Samsung over this patent only to eventually get killed for prior art as this could apple to NFC ALREADY in good % of driod phones?
for prices, http://www.pcper.com/news/Storage/Samsung-SSD-EVO-suggested-pricing-revealed
Wasn't all of China's innovation's just stolen tech from other countries?
Like china would join something that would take a nice chuck outta their economy. Good % of their business's were built on stealing another's idea's from outside china and yet claim they came up with it.
Problem is not the hardware, its the software running on it. Being a known Chinese state backed company that has been known to help spy on its own people, whats to stop them from doing same to other countries using said hardware.
i find this graph very sad on part of AMD, comparing their 15watt part vs an intel cpu that uses only 2-3watts and is designed to compete against arm. Lets step back and use something in proper ball park, Core i3 part which is 15-16watt range. AMD cpu is a quad core and i3 is dual core but still i3 in a podcast i watched earlier tonight that had new amd cpu and tested it was still slower.
"Seagate claims the 4TB Video 3.5 HDD can deliver up to 16 simultaneous high-definition video streams"
Like to know their idea of HD.
"The Video 3.5 HDD can operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with an initial 0.55 per cent chance of drive failure per year."
what does it go up to after the first year?
If you think about it makes wireless providers a much larger player in broadband market since speed will be most consistent.
You know this could be a bad idea for china. Apple if they ever find a better place to have their products made might just leave.
More then 2 years old, S.O.L.
do i need to point at apple's desktop market. Their mac pro line THEY STILL charge same price they did 3 years ago for a machine that is 3 year old parts.
I would say 1500-2500 is an optimistic price for an "Apple" branded TV. i wouldn't expect The avg 60inch right now starts around 1500, Apple will never sell them even close to cost it will be least 2500 to start cause if apple can't price it at a premium to make ton of cash off it they won't even do it.
"We're investing in retail around the world, in product innovation, in new product, in supply chain. We're acquiring some companies."
Yes iphone has been the same since 2007, ipad well hasn't been almost the same ipad it was 3 years ago with small changes. Its been a stock pile of cash almost no innovation just minor updates every year.
Re: You're barging in wrong
Remember back in the 80's apple made a commercial that mocked MS and how people were like drones to it. Doesn't it seem like that commercial is flip flopped with apple having people as drones and Samsung is destroying the apple.
Well to put faith piece of software to do all the protection when they know they been getting attacked consistently for months. Seems Like NY Times dropped the ball on protecting their networks. Granted Symantec is not the greatest software, but even the best software has flaws and holes that will be found. Less the IT staff takes steps to protect the network this will happen.
no surprise there are getting to be more and more real good tablets for under 300$ out there. Don't need to spent money on a majorly marked up tablet be able to get one to do 99% of what you want.
you should have ever right to put app's on your device from somewhere other then apple. All the apple app store is, just a way for them to get money from every possible spot reguardless. Apple has also had a very questionable policy of removing competing app's from their store in favor of their own made app's. That is nothing more IMO as apple trying to keep a monopoly on some things and blocking any competition.
Re: Apple FRAND Licensing
Google has to make an attempt to license the patents under fair and reasonable, But with that said Apple as well has to pay fair and reasonable rates as well. And if apple seems to keep with this 1$ or less bit it could get to a point of request an injunction against apples products since they are not willing to be fair.
you do relize that case is of samsung vs apple is not even done yet? verdict isn't finalized and samsung still has an appeal. So if by chance samsung ends up having to play it won't be for years yet.
300+$ for such a limited tool?
Only thing a smart person has to do is make it to the computer and pull the power cord, and most ppl now days don't use hibernate so that route is kinda useless.
eh real question
When does apple get the balls to think their maps are good enough they kill off Google's maps app from the app store? Pretty sure that would set off Google talkin to the DOJ of clear anti-competitive practices.
'We only eat RAW CASH'
That would only be apple since they are only ones with insanely high markup's on everything they sell
Re: Memory upgrades.
Comparing outside to inside of the machine, the ram is located about right about where the Apple logo is. SO what i can tell there is no easy way without tearing the whole machine apart. if you picked up the main logic board and put it straight in machine where that silver cover plate is, just to right is where ram would be.
Re: but it's not an 'end-user serviceable' upgrade"
Ifixit did a complete tear down of it like they do for mostly everything, its a desktop built using laptop hard drive and laptop ram. And need to break out the heat gun.
"Fitted as standard on all new iMacs is 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM - up to 32GB is supported, but it's not an 'end-user serviceable' upgrade"
I read that as like their laptops solderer on the board. Reason apple does all this gluing is to make you come to them hopefully outta warranty so they can charge ya 2x cost what anyone else would normally charge, case in point iPhone battery replacement being 80$ where most other phones are 30$ or so and can be done by you in 10sec. Apple made this just like everything else they make to be replaced in 2 years.
only reason why
only reason they are joining forces is cause if someone else gets these patents its gonna end up being massive litigation against each other. this way they can pay a fraction what they would have to pay if they did it them selves and they got high chance to be top bidder.
Seeing this days reminds me of the Old AOL days and this stuff, back when I do evil stuff. only had to use a list of like 30 pw's, all dumb ones like this well list might been like 15. Hard to remember 14 years ago. So many ppl used these passwords. ahhh the memories.
Think Apple ditching Samsung is starting to show it was a bad idea even though they are one of their major competitors?
Re: That alternative battery decision, just out of spite...
"Would you continue to give a company proven to have no ethics and bent on destroying your business a supply contract for the explosive parts of your products?" <--- no ethic's sounds very much like Apple and their use of patents even they are are purely bogus and trying to get a competitor banned from the market.
