    The three examples aren't very good examples, since they are all available on Android.

    Touch ID = fingerprint scanner
    64 bit =64 bit,

    Where is iCardboard?

  • Update: The Silver Lining In McDonald's Numbers Nobody Seems To Be Talking About [View article]
    Subway and many other restaurants, Canada has the Harveys burger chain, already have this capability. I don't think it is beyond the abilities of the staff.

  • Intel's Leadership In Notebook Processors Is Unchallenged [View article]
    You need talent and cash to develop anything. Lots of one with help compensate for less of the other, but you really need both. It is silly to argue any of the companies lack talent, it's all about internal priorities. Intel has been focusing on absolute performance for some time. Now they are more focused in perforce per Watt, and making good progress.
    They don't exist at the low end because they chose to abandon that market decades ago, now their priorities have changed and they are trying to re-enter that space.
    It will take time, but I think they have the cash and talent to do it.

    Any news on the other products MU is working on?

    More memory and a SSD gives you phenomenal performance improvement. I think there is a lot if demand it's just waiting for a reason to upgrade.

  • Apple: Ditching Intel Processors Would Be Disastrous [View article]
    Where did you come up with that number? Porting can be easy or hard and depends in a lot of things. Good clean code is easy to port to new architectures, look at NetBSD.

  • Is Apple Becoming The Next IBM? [View article]
    Apple puts a nice layer of polish on things.
    But they're starting to lose their edge.

    The latest Android release (Lollipop) is much better than iOS 8.

    Apple is still making buckets of money, but how long will the smartphone remain the cash cow it is today? As cool as the 5k iMac is, and I want one, Apple doesn't even make the panel.

    Apple needs to step up their game.

  • Google's Search Engine Contract With Apple Is Coming To An End [View article]
    Some people will notice a drop in search quality.
    I regularly use alternative search engines, and Google clearly comes out on top.
    Google has worked best for me since I stopped using Altavista.

  • The Internet Monopoly I Want To Own Forever [View article]
    I think there are 2 relevant things that I can draw from my own experiences.

    1. Google is vastly superior to Bing.
    2. Many people don't change from the default search engine.

    Likely because IBM isn't a portable device company.

  • Google: Is A Big Shakeup Coming In 2015? [View article]
    They don't share personally identifiable information about you. Look at the terms of usage. Sure they share aggregate user data, but so does the Census.

    Actually they track usage to more effectively target ads. If you're emailing about a new SUV, maybe car ads will be more appropriate.

    Bing is unusable for me, if I want to limit results to items in the last few months, you simply can't do it. That feature doesn't exist.

    If you still believe Google shares information to get advertisers to pay, wouldn't Bing do the exact same thing to get advertisers to pay?
