Honey, I shrunk the battery: Something's gotta give as iPhone 12's logic board swells to accommodate 5G chippery

Re: Just curious

Battery is smaller than on the Iphone 11 (marginally). Maybe A14 was optimized to use less power when running on 4G...

Not that simple.

Thought you'd go online to buy better laptop for home working? Too bad, UK. So did everyone. Laptops, monitors and WLANs fly off shelves

Re: Do No Evil ?

I guess all all them to a certain extent. Don't know about Facebook, but Microsoft still operates via the Ireland based subsidiary in relation to EU countries...

Re: I feel fortunate

Hear, hear... I still miss my 9900 and my Nokia 1520 but this is life. We have lost but still have something to remember (actually I still have the Bold 9900 but the thing will not power up anymore)

LINUX device manufacturers? I think you refer to the Android device manufactures that were held hostage with the FAT patents.

Re: The only way Microsoft could make some people happy

Not actually true. Windows still accounts for a shitload of revenue for Microsoft. However, what would happen in the future is for all to wait and see. The latest directions changes were all generated by the need to make money: Windows Mobile fails? They have a huge number of Android/IOS apps that are well regarded/downloaded to the tune that they can male an android variant fully customized using their own launcher and apps. Already have an Linux distro (true, Azure only) but if the flow of money will show the need to have a mainstream Linux distro, under Nadella I am pretty sure will do it.

Re: Preempt

I think that murder is considered federal crime, so there is no way to hide from this in the US.

Re: Just Tell Me...

Funny thing is that even under Linux, you are only at a browser step away from onedrive...

Re: "there will be fewer certifications to maintain [..], which is costly and time consuming"

I agree... If the financial results depends on letting one engineer go, I think the company has some screw-ups running it...

Re: Spotted the problem?

Yes, quite cheap :)

It's official. Microsoft pushes Google over the Edge, shifts browser to Chromium engine

kat_bg

Edge will live on (albeit with a different underframe...) As for Bing, was it killed recently and never heard it? Not that I care too much.

Microsoft polishes up Chromium as EdgeHTML peers into the abyss

Re: Take your browser and fuck off

Well, if you use Chrome, I guess you are already a commodity, just for a different corporation. Just saying...

Microsoft Surface kicks dust in face of Apple iPad Pro in Q3

Re: Like a Ferrari than only runs on 20 Octane gas

i guess that that statistic refers to US market, not the entire world. Not sure how well Chromebook fares in comparison to Surface or Ipad Prod for that matter in the absence of internet connection. Haven't seen one in the wild, although I have seen plenty Ipad Pros and Surface

Re: Doing the maths

Partly correct. You didn't took into account the number of gigabytes of traffic per ISP per year. I think the final amount will be bigger than 700k.

gypsies

Although I don't approve hacking , the hackers in this case had a point. You should not confuse the romanian people with gypsies. Clarkson tried to make a joke but unfortunately was not a good one.
