Intel management can see the writing on the wall for themselves. They went from way ahead of the nearest competition straight into scramble mode almost overnight thanks to mobile growth and ARM's perfect positioning for it. If anything, Microsoft's blunders are giving Intel a big headache because they need Windows more than any other platform to sell mobile Intel chips (once they've been developed). Intel is and has been desperately trying to come up with an x86 chip that can compete with ARM.
I may not be able to come up with an overwhelming argument from your prospective, but neither can you prove there is no creator to my satisfaction.
A good science text book wouldn't mention *anything* about a creator, much less try to disprove it. What you're proposing is to inject the option that there might be a creator because some of what the textbook teaches conflicts with your holy book. This is insanity.
Why the FUCK doesn't Nintendo or Sony build a fucking gamer phone
As I was pointing out to some folks thinking of buying a console there really is NO upsides to the consoles over the PC this gen
When has there ever been? The draw for consoles is, as I'm sure you're aware, the couch aspect and easily connecting with friends. The steambox is meant to solve these problems for PC gamers at the same cost (or less hopefully) as having a gaming PC *and* and a console. Buy once - play anywhere. Keep in mind that you'll still need that gaming rig to stream from as long as developers continue ignoring linux. It's also worth noting that because of this, the steambox is currently useless to people who only play on consoles.
A strange thing happens when you win the money game though. Your money doesn't circulate, so it's no longer worth as much as money.
I'm not sure how you got modded to +5 with this (maybe the bitcoin cheer leading), but taking money out of circulation increases its value and adding money to the pool (inflation) decreases its value. Maybe what you meant was that the FED will have more incentive to print?
Makers of devices without a microSD slot don't have to pay VFAT or exFAT royalties to Microsoft.
Aside from the fact that a software patent is different from a hardware patent, why not just offer an alternative? For nexus phones at least, I believe it's because Google wants you to stream everything (from them).
What do you even want a microsd slot for?
More space than the manufacturers give you.
The device will still have storage, most likely much faster than an sdcard.
They won't have 32-64 Gigabytes of storage (which I need for music etc), and if they did they would charge you out the ass for it. 32 and 64 GB SD cards aren't exactly cheap, but at least once you've bought one you can use it in all future phones you buy. Also, it's not any slower than internal storage. In fact the 16GB of storage in my xperia T is literally another embedded SD card.
You can simply plug your android device into a computer and use this storage as a USB drive AND your phone can use the storage at the same time.
Yes this is how it works with SD cards too. You obviously have never tried this, and you should. It's much more convenient to have modular storage.
They could have stuffed it up, but I can't help thinking Nokia would be in the position Samsung are now had they gone with Android.
You mean making a profit?
