var someVariable:Int = 3
let someConstant:Int = 4
and you could have done
var someVariable:Int = 3
someConstant:Int = 4
so you just don't have to have a keyword make it be a constant.
And I'm curious to know too. I think it was probably just a style choice, or perhaps lessening the odds of accidental declarations, but it would be interesting if there was some technical reason for it.
Fast forward a year or so and now Apple ONLY sells devices that can use wireless headphones in their most popular product.
You can plug in your old headphones using the adapter they include in the box (and sell replacements for $9), or you can use the wired Lightning Cable EarPods they also... include in the box. Heck, they sell replacements for those too.
I get that you're mad but your assertion that you can ONLY use wireless headphones is false in more ways than one.
And as for being mad that they bought a wireless headphone company and then did something to encourage usage of wireless headphones? That just says you don't understand how hardware companies work. Especially if you don't think every other phone manufacturer isn't about to do the same.
That only counts PC and Mac. There have been loads of copies sold on xbox 360, xb1, ps3, ps4, psp, ds, phones, and every other conceivable platform...
Actually it's never launched on Nintendo DS or 3DS. Every other platform you listed though is accurate, as well as the Raspberry Pi.
...and also it needs to be pointed out that several movie companies have discarded these ideas before because they know that by offering you new titles so early they are going to lose on all the overpriced cold drinks, and snacks they sell you at the theatre...
OK first, "the movie companies" is hilariously vague - are you talking about the studios that make movies or are you talking about the theaters? They're not the same companies, pretty much ever.
Second, assuming you mean the studios - they see none of the revenue from the sales of concessions. None. They take the majority of the ticket price in most cases, usually on a sliding scale downwards from the week of release. A theater playing The Force Awakens on day one actually makes very little money on people seeing the movie. Maybe a dollar a person. They barely make enough to cover the costs of the janitors at the end of the night. This is also why they hate long movies - you can't have as many showings which cuts down the take further.
The theaters make their money on the concessions. That's why they're so expensive. That's why you can't bring your own. That's why the "dinner and a movie" chains like Alamo Drafthouse or Studio Movie Grill are thriving. That's just how the business works.
It's also why ideas like this generally fail because the major theater chains will usually refuse to carry movies that undercut them like this. There was a movie years ago called Bubble which released day one on PPV and DVD. You've never heard of it because theaters refused to carry it.
This is also why ideas like The Screening Room will include the cost of a ticket to your favorite theater in your rental price - so that the theater chains won't get mad.
You didn't really expect us to write quality software for a competing OS that didn't eventually drive you over to Windows, did you? Silly user...
I think it's probably more that anything which isn't
Also I would imagine what gets released this week is essentially going to be a free preview that's unfinished so naturally some stuff just isn't going to work right.
(including microsoft, which in fact really liked asm.js, it used it in its office 356 products)
Slight point of clarification, the product Microsoft used it in is Office Online (formerly Office Web Apps), which is their web-based implementation of Office products. They're not as full featured or as supported as their desktop counterparts but they are free.
What they are not, however, is part of Office 365 (or at least not the versions available to the public). Office 365 is Microsoft's term for their subscription-based Office suite. When you're an Office 365 subscriber you have access to the latest desktop versions of Office and you get all the features in the mobile app versions as well.
This confuses people all the time since people think that Office 365 is Office Online but that's not the case.
