I had never heard of it. Sounds like a good service. I would start using it except now that google has bought it surely it'll be gone in 2 years.
Yes like YouTube, Android where are they?
I don't care how many pixels you stuff in there, it doesn't matter if the monster 5.5" screen doesn't fit in my hand.
There is a joke involved in you not being able to handle anything more than 4"
More, more, more. The only thing i'm missing is battery runtime and no vendor gives a shit about it.
Actually L or Lollipop includes Project Volta, which will add battery saving tools for developers and users alike. A "Battery Historian" gives more info on exactly what's draining energy, while a battery saver mode lets users squeeze up to an extra 90 minutes out of each charge.
That is vampire modes that turn smartphones into to dumbphones to extend smartphone my several times. I have witnessed it with the samsung galaxy S5 and was very impressed. I own the current Nexus which I love, but comes with a battery life I don't. I L does not make a difference. I may change to a different vendor.
Apple is selling a smartphone with a tiny less-than-HD screen, a processor that toddles along at a whisker over 1 GHz and a tiny 1400 MaH battery, and they're doing quite nicely for themselves
Your statement just shows how behind the times Apple is. The power of it being perceived first has been worth Billions to them. Ironically what you are describing is other companies "entry" or "mid" level phones by Android. They often have "mini" in the name for obvious reasons. Apple make money through having an incredible ( and deserved) brand...but it peaked two years ago. That does not mean that its shrinking market share or growing mountains of cash with vanish any time soon. Those specifications are desirable large screens; waterproofing; IR everybody wants and desires these things not just geeks or hardcore gadget people, just people who swim and shower and watch tv and change channels etc etc.
The irony of your statement shows as once it would have been Steve Jobs strutting on stage taking about how "his" devices had "retina" displays, only to have you interpret this as "tiny less-than-HD screen"
No wonder Android has 1 Billion users

Korea (presumably South Korea) is infatuated with Microsoft tech. ActiveX is used everywhere
2020...in Five years they can easily do replace everything...with sanctions and tax breaks even sooner.
2020 is a long way away. Politicians usually only have long term vision when they don't want to make decisions about something. So MS will most probably still be strong in Korea by 2020.
You are so right, governments woldwide are famous for making quick and timely visions, especially when it involves changing major infrastructure.
Here comes the year of the Linux desktop.
The Linux Desktop is already here. In and amongst the pissing contest in early markets consoles; watches, home, health between Apple and Google (What happened to Microsoft). Chrome OS got Android compatibility and Office Update and its Office improved, massive Android integration, and Google Play . As well as some great adoption statistics. 8 OEMs making 15 distinct Chrome OS devices now on sale in 28 countries, 10 highest rated notebooks available on Amazon.com and Chromebooks sold to K-12 schools has risen 6x.
The fact that GNU Linux continues to flourish is just an aside.
He also revealed a few other interesting stats for the platform, including that Android users send 20 billion texts per day and 93 million selfies."
Apple just had it's most impressive WWDC since the launch of the iPhone.
Safari(With Bing?) Mail improvements, More Lock in/Cloud(At a price). Single platform...slight(after slight) at google, costly cloud applications, even with a few tweaks...like a clone of the awesomebar, and a nice payout from Microsoft.
Spin is just that spin. I bought the first iPhone
I didn't really understand your point about watches, something about "bitches" and flipping. Your talk about the nike band...not really a smartwatch really, but http://edition.cnn.com/2014/04... there is talk of collaboration between the two which makes more sense, as they are unlikely to compete in the smartphone market, which is already hitting strides. The moto360 is making waves.
As for switching on games on AppleTV...are those people games buyers or would they have like bought a game console instead of an AppleTV.
As for swift...a proprietary language, other than locking in developers to ios why would anyone care. you can't pull those tricks with a market share of 15% and shrinking however good it is...and the drivers are still slow.
Honestly I'd be happier to see an openly available AppleTV SDK
Apple have squandered a lead they had with AppleTV when for a few $ you can by a cromecast of android device(even dedicated gaming ones) who cares now. In context of this article I think its cooks biggest failure.
OK, Apple is number 2
Something we can finally agree on, the fact that Apples brand is shrinking and Beats is growing in an Apple area dominates does not really matter. the whole point is Apple is relying on past glories...and those under Jobs.
