This time, all their drivers will be Linux drivers.
Please resist the temptation to believe every bit of tripe posted on the internet by anonymous experts without doing at least some minimal amount of fact checking. Kodak emerged from bankruptcy in 2013. Parent post is full of crap.
Eh, wait, given that the camera is one of the biggest selling points on a smart phone, why does it not make sense for a wilely recognized name in cameras to get into the business? As far as the supposed lack of profits in the Android market goes, think about this for a moment: this year, over a billion Android phones will be sold at an average price over $250. That $250 billion dollars revenue, or to put in in more precise terms, a metric crapload. That money gets shares all up and down the Android ecosystem, from chip makers to market droids. Not such a bad idea to hang your hat in a place where massive amounts of money circulates.
Whatever the cause, the timing is obviously terrible: Plenty of people surely received one of the two consoles as Christmas presents today, while many more gamers would have happily spent the afternoon in front of the TV. In the meantime, both Sony and Microsoft have acknowledged the problem, with Sony issuing a tweet and Microsoft posting a message on its support website: "We're working to address this as quickly as we possibly can," reads its status website. "Thanks for your patience, Xbox members." In an email, a Microsoft spokesperson declined to comment further or say when the company expects to restore service. We've also asked Sony to comment and will update this post if and when it does. The Xbox Live status page says service remains "limited," and the Playstation Network is listed as offline.
Is that you, Tim?
...you exaggerate the level of effort required by Apple to do the right thing.
In my world the "right thing" is not to have an Apple Employee have to take even TWO HOURS the day before Christmas...
Because as everybody knows, all Apple employees are special little snowflakes whose precious little lives will be completely ruined by taking even two hours on a holiday to do the right thing.
Because if they don't, they will be viewed as cowards?
How so when it will simply come out next week.
Let's see if it does.
Kim Jung-un has:
* Inherited a position and country that was already hated.
* Behaved as expected of his culture.
* Never been known for harming anyone outside of his own country.
* Suffered insults in nearly every report about him for as long as he has lived.
* blah blah blah blather blather...
* Done nothing to rectify the situation because he enjoys it just as it is.
Why should Apple make people work Christmas...
Because if they don't, they will be viewed as cowards? Anyway, you exaggerate the level of effort required by Apple to do the right thing.
I imagine that Sony execs changed their minds not only because of the widespread perception of cowardice, but because they received assurances from certain government agencies.
More like: Apple sets a new standard for limp wristed gutlessness. That's how it comes across. Tim, your move.
