Re: Boeing Transfers Engineering Jobs to CA

If your thinking long term than any work moved away from CA or WA is smart.

Moving away is only smart in the long term if you think you don't need highly qualified workers. In the long term. Because smart workers don't like having [more]

Re: Only if it give me Harry Potter like powers.

How do you define "top"?

Uhhh, you know, the side that faces up? The same way your phone knows which way is up.

I agree oval would be much more comfortable than round. If Apple would prefer round for simplicity [more]

Re: Only if it give me Harry Potter like powers.

If I'm picturing what you're describing correctly, I'll have to either contort my wrist or spin the watch around to see the entire display?

I was thinking being able to rotate the picture by swiping. And an option where the most [more]

Re: Only if it give me Harry Potter like powers.

I could see a bracelet style watch of good width with display all around. The problem is you'd need many sizes to fit comfortably on every wrist. That would put a strain on software design to make it work nicely in many different sizes.

But [more]

Re: Only if it give me Harry Potter like powers.

There is no way it will cost $1,000.

I honestly don't know. It all depends what's inside, what it can do and what's on the outside. With the outside I mean a substantial piece of sapphire glass.

Re: Reflections on Build 2014 from an Apple dev

I'm not saying that if the Air had debuted in the 90's it wouldn't have gotten some sales; it would. But I don't think it would have had near the penetration given that Windows had become the standard (and you couldn't run Windows reliably on a [more]

Re: Samsung graphene breakthrough?

It always surprises me when people falsify claims that are so easily fact-checked.

The very article to which you linked contradicts you. You don't need to farther than the 2nd sentence, which reads:

Re: Samsung graphene breakthrough?

"Apple doesn't allow any browser on iOS that isn't built with WebKit…"

Chrome is built with webkit on the desktop as well, even on Windows.

Is that Apple's fault, too?

Re: Samsung graphene breakthrough?

I've tried Chrome and it has the same problem of clearing cache.


That's probably because Apple doesn't allow any browser on iOS that isn't built with WebKit. Any fault in one will be a fault in all of them.

Re: Turn on a Dime

The advances in CPU / GPU that's occured over the last six years took care of that issue for Android along with further optimizing some of the code.

Re: Amazon's Fire TV

Every time our "promotion" ends and they try to increase the price, Mrs. Goofy calls them and says "We're not going to pay that. What other options do you have? or we have to go back to the satellite."
