To be fair, my iPhone was having intermittent charging issues and I found that I needed to pull quite a bit of lint out of the lightning port. I was able to carefully shovel it out with a pin pretty easily but it might be harder on the USB-C with the tab in there.
Vert.x is a lightweight, high performance application platform for the JVM that's designed for modern mobile, web, and enterprise applications.
Just to confirm...you're upset that they implemented exactly the feature you wanted?
And while I think your post was forward looking, I'm going to take a wild guess and say it wasn't the design document for the Apple Watch. And if it was, well, I'm glad they didn't take your suggestion of a lightning connector.
I got a Chromebook for my dad with the prime advantages being simplicity and no maintenance. I don't have to worry about keeping him updated, installing anti-virus, or even handing him Ubuntu. All he wants is a browser so why give him more? He loves it!
It is true. You're thinking of some machine with a Core 2 Duo.
If you have Netflix streaming (or want to go through some hassle), check out When We Left Earth: The NASA Missions. Absolutely fantastic documentary on the space race and the way I recently learned about his landing. For reasons outside my control, I was not alive until many years later.
I totally get the conspiracy theories about a fake moon landing. I know we did it. But looking up at the moon, it's hard to believe it.
The point of the 5C was to break into markets where the 5S is too expensive to gain big market share.
According to who? That's what pundits wanted and assumed but it should now be obvious that it's not what Apple wanted. For the time being, they're still happy with their premium device strategy. You only have to look as far back as the iPod and iPod mini to see what they're doing.
It should be noted the iPhone 4 is still being sold in China.
Not the bits themselves, but changing the architecture gave ARM a chance to clean up the instruction set and double the registers. And that IS an advantage. It's very similar to what AMD did with x86-64.
The study concluded: "Our comprehensive review finds that the best estimate for the total economically quantifiable costs, based on a conservative weighting of many of the study findings, amount to some $345.3 billion, adding close to 17.8/kWh of electricity generated from coal. The low estimate is $175 billion, or over 9/kWh, while the true monetizable costs could be as much as the upper bounds of $523.3 billion, adding close to 26.89/kWh. These and the more difficult to quantify externalities are borne by the general public." The average residential price of electricity at the time of the report is 12/kWh.
You say that like it's a bad thing. A glorified web browser with incredible security is exactly what a good amount of people should be using. Hell, I know someone who would get along fine if their computer did nothing but Facebook, let alone the rest of the web.
I find it hard to believe (though it's getting easier) that even geeks who have trouble seeing the world outside their little techy bubble can complain about this. I've seen the idea of an internet "driver's license" come up on these boards but then something that protects people from themselves is shit all over. Well done.
Facebook copied this feature a while ago with "Lists". For example, I have a Gamers list that's self-explanatory. You can post to lists or everyone excluding certain lists, like Coworkers.
As I understand it, the old Maps app used Google's data but was still made by Apple. Google now needs to make their own app from scratch.
Some people might not like voiding their warranty the day they buy their phone.
That's an old, old policy. Now there are many alternative browsers, mail clients, calendars, etc.
