The Accidental Tech Podcast

1: iPhone Plus


  you know the number you put it like a five accident and the Apple TV thing how [TS]

  many I'm an idiot for that it's going into the retina iPad Mini of course [TS]

  delivery time actually I was thinking of going into the red Knight had many of [TS]

  course it wasn't an ensuing if I was going to truck and Apple TV yet well he [TS]

  said that he said he believes will be at ice rink which makes sense as the full [TS]

  husband would be too much heat for that probably [TS]

  and of course if you're gonna have a dye shrink a 50 X that's going to be a [TS]

  really inexpensive way to to read notify the mini with while still maintaining [TS]

  good separation 24 evil about a high-priced one that the faster chip and [TS]

  you know keep those margins will be healthier and many of the reason I [TS]

  totally believe the Apple TV is because there is to send yourself they're gonna [TS]

  put the ones they were to the GPU cores burned out you know right because you [TS]

  got for GPU cores in there and I got you covered a lot of parts for one of those [TS]

  for GPRS is no good right to the Apple TV because it does not need more like [TS]

  they maybe they intentionally burn out to even if one fails they will [TS]

  intentionally you know as the seat or no one is in a fight with one core [TS]

  burned-out right and my crappy GPU so I can put in a fight that scenario right [TS]

  now we've got four corners if any one of them is bad we're gonna intentionally [TS]

  burned out two of them to save power and and you know i mean like because he [TS]

  likes 1080p like the max resolution you do not need for chorus so i'm used I'm [TS]

  upset that a tener five acts in all likelihood I'm upset because the effects [TS]

  of shitty CPU for iPad programming because it you know it's four times [TS]

  graphics power but the same CPU power and and so CPU bound traffic operations [TS]

  become four times lower than an iPad 2 and and that that's really pleased I [TS]

  don't know like that the Apple TV I totally believe that it's going to be a [TS]

  five-axis of stuff we actually have to do this right now but if a venir at the [TS]

  retina many many I still think it's going to be in a sec yeah I hope so but [TS]

  if that's the case then why besides I guess having a bunch of extra been doubt [TS]

  if I max's but then why would they put the effects of the Apple TV I think [TS]

  that's what it is I think it's like they've been [TS]

  they made the iPad 3 for a long time right now and I really like seven months [TS]

  I know they sold a lot of them and how many Apple TVs they sell in the seven [TS]

  months versus how many iPad 3 is this you know the mini was even around like [TS]

  the iPad 3 I guess at that point to yes america's such a large home I think it's [TS]

  because that ship such a big monster that they had to have a lot of rejects [TS]

  and they're looking for something to do with those rejects because otherwise [TS]

  what do you do you throw away right you know it's basically like free money and [TS]

  put you do you put it in your your crappy low selling little TV thing [TS]

  you've got you've got the land around the probably tell them don't throw those [TS]

  out just keep on the side will think of something that's if you believe that but [TS]

  it seemed like I looked at is investigated where can i buy it so yeah [TS]

  me and I don't think he would post something that confidently without [TS]

  having having good stuff to back it up so I i believe it too and that's why I [TS]

  figure like the only two options are the only two US relations are using a built [TS]

  in chips or upcoming right now I've had many using that particular died sharing [TS]

  of that particular chip but I really don't want that to be true that chip so [TS]

  much depends on us for their think there are already many I receive some around [TS]

  him and he would not arrive for like you guys think I like next Thanksgiving [TS]

  season and extracts family but but this could be some crazy things these days [TS]

  128 gigabytes how so weird like white now you know there's lots of theories [TS]

  like I I like my favorite one was you know they just got off this there were [TS]

  people yell to them about their margins you like fun you wanna Stephan Martin is [TS]

  due up here was throwing an even higher just gotta be months ago was going to [TS]

  say look we can do this we can make this thing if we make this thing we're going [TS]

  to sell a non-zero number of them and the margins are gonna be awesome and [TS]

  they probably have some demand for some people who wanted to like you know what [TS]

  fine slap in 28 gigs sell it for rickles spent like what chance is pretty soon [TS]

  they're gonna have to line shift where they do like okay six teams are gone [TS]

  rights 32 64 128 all for the same price points you know like that's gonna happen [TS]

  to me [TS]

  this is their one chance to sell hundred twenty eight gigs with a ridiculous [TS]

  markup and you know it doesn't bring Martin is downright the Mini is dragging [TS]

  their iPad margins downs like how can we pull the iPad Martin's back up when you [TS]

  put a higher end model in there well that's weird what if what if this [TS]

  actually it like you know the same way to have had four came out only like [TS]

  seven months after the three what if they really are moving to a more like [TS]

  twice a year [TS]

  update schedule because the iPhone and iPad are their most important products [TS]

  and it and they often get dinged in comparisons and the press and reviews [TS]

  and everything that goes there all because they therefore there you know [TS]

  shipping an eleven-month-old model again somebody's brand new thing that the [TS]

  brand new corner brand new radio and stuff like that you know what if they [TS]

  were found that there's like they're always getting things in comparison to [TS]

  whatever the hell the latest Android phone is but any individual Android [TS]

  phone makers want to be on the market for some period of time because you just [TS]

  don't get the economies of scale as you sell it for a couple of months at least [TS]

  right so like you know it's going to strike a balance between not be they [TS]

  just want their just one maker they're never gonna be except for like that when [TS]

  they first introduced the phone then they can be a little bit had everybody [TS]

  else but me they just have to be ok with three months six months of just being a [TS]

  little bit behind because during that time there like ranking on you know so I [TS]

  i totally by trying to go to an eight month or six months I cooler twenty [TS]

  years I especially if they stick with you like 44 s 55 s cadence where you [TS]

  just you know upgrade the guts and also especially since like we went you know [TS]

  and 3G LTE in a pretty quick sequence relatively speaking there's nothing [TS]

  surpassing LTE except maybe you know 802 11 AC that's going to have to be to go [TS]

  in there and screw the radio so they'll be able to generate on the other parts [TS]

  with a great you know let's relax a little bit we have like a world phone [TS]

  that does not do you know each other things one or two more rapid and you [TS]

  know it's not a total people where we go from 3G to LTE and how to support all [TS]

  the screen is done they're probably not going to go with a more dense fog rain [TS]

  they could go bigger maybe you know that's honestly I think they have to go [TS]

  bigger just to keep competitive in the market like I think I don't think they [TS]

  have to make their only model bigger but I think they have to have a bigger model [TS]

  because even though we all make fun of these fabulous things they're really [TS]

  popular people love them I don't get it to be a phablet it just needs to be like [TS]

  right now it's a skinny four inches I think they need to have a more [TS]

  reasonable by to portion if I think I booked you for those 800 by 600 all [TS]

  people love that everything was so big you could actually see things you can [TS]

  use your big fat 0 person finger in it like they just gonna make a 4.5 inch you [TS]

  know iPhone same read everything on the screen will be dead but this group I'll [TS]

  be cheaper because like the density will be lower so even though the screen is [TS]

  bigger pie apple less money to make you could put an even bigger battery and [TS]

  there's nothing like last forever and you get all these awesome advantages [TS]

  actually so so you know how the LCD cutting theory could have predicted the [TS]

  mini what if you do the math backwards what if you cut the retina full-size [TS]

  iPad screen to iPhone resolution how big is that so many ways by saying all right [TS]

  if you just take the 3G s do it backwards from the from the full sized [TS]

  retina iPad format physical size are from that dpi rather how big what an [TS]

  iPhone 5 resolution screen be at that dpi something you need to I don't think [TS]

  you do that I think they just need to decide how much bigger than four inches [TS]

  you want it just make the screen that they like I don't you know the screen [TS]

  cutting theory the thing about the screen game series even if you a hundred [TS]

  percent by that that's how the technology of manufacturing LCDs works I [TS]

  think Apple changes their screen supplier like every single device [TS]

  because they're always chasing the next guy with the next best deal is going to [TS]

  offer them the better screen for less money like you know that LG sharp [TS]

  samples but they also always have volume problems they always are like shorts are [TS]

  short on screen that they always need more screens so what we gonna do like [TS]

  they have they have [TS]

  multiple suppliers but once you have multiple supply guy basically but I [TS]

  think like a couple of a couple of size and if that if that cutting theory is [TS]

  correct then you could gross you can dramatically increase your yields and [TS]

  simplify everything we only have been like two DTI is that you buy screens but [TS]

  only if you're sticking with someone like only if the guy who was making new [TS]

  year are your retina iPad screens is also the same guy you're gonna get to [TS]

  make your iPhone plus sized screens and I think when the iPhone + goes out they [TS]

  just rebuild the entire thing and they like they give no particular advantage [TS]

  of the guy who was making the screens of the same dpi for some device especially [TS]

  as far distances the iPad 3 like a good just to rebuild every time to best [TS]

  manufacturers with special with the exhaust tough line so you know whoever [TS]

  is offering that like it if that guy who's doing the iPad 3 screen whether a [TS]

  sharper whatever they can offer the exact thing that I can you describe it [TS]

  all the time I just set the suppliers against killing dogs and just wait to [TS]

  see who comes you know survive in like that that's the TSM see their ATM [TS]

  whenever they like those I know I read like they're they're obviously so [TS]

  incredibly hungry but just that followed video card manufacturing in the ATI [TS]

  Nvidia wars back in those days they both manufacturers [TS]

  SMC and it was sometimes good and sometimes disastrous I don't doubt that [TS]

  they're hungry I do worry that they're going to you know make a deal that Apple [TS]

  will accept exists an awesome deal on then just not be able to deliver all [TS]

  gonna be sad so I have two questions firstly if you take a iPhone plus that [TS]

  is not written by standard iPhone standards because if it's late and I'm [TS]

  tired but I the DPI the iPad is considerably less than the DPI of the [TS]

  iPhone [TS]

  well to 64 and the other one is like it's like three twelve-hour or something [TS]

  like that [TS]

  considerable so anyway so if they make an iPhone plus with the with the 264 dpi [TS]

  don't you think they'll get raked over the coals for those pictures like my [TS]

  parents could not too different channel iPad 2 and three when I showed the right [TS]

  in the store in front of them I said there's little things I made them get a [TS]

  three anyway but they literally cannot tell the difference in like I am [TS]

  tendering brought up some texts and held in turn their faces ACLU like oh yeah [TS]

  just get the 300 people thought I'm telling you that the screen they needed [TS]

  to be bigger needs a bigger so they don't drop it so it's like just bigger [TS]

  and heavier bigger pictures and bigger place their fat fingers the touch they [TS]

  love it was gonna be will really give a shit either way you know if they do get [TS]

  raked over the coals do they really care [TS]

  people will not complain like it's it will not be you know so I was not real [TS]

  red its fine like it you know look at all the other phones that are a [TS]

  resolution to special I can see the pixels or can you not see them and 264 a [TS]

  stepping stone and especially like it if the phone itself as a bigger you're not [TS]

  gonna hold as close to your face so the old people like they don't like to have [TS]

  the thing you know right they want to hold it away like people who books away [TS]

  so they can read it [TS]

  they're reading glasses they need to get their way but you get a iphone 5 at [TS]

  arm's length and suddenly you can't read the title honestly I might consider [TS]

  getting one of the bigger ones that that was the option like it was otherwise [TS]

  just as good just a little bit bigger I managed to go this whole Skype session [TS]

  without making a short joke even when you talk about how they were trying [TS]

  and now you tell me you want to get the five in Jaipur no Marco you have to get [TS]

  the small one at the correct size for you it's properly prepare your family [TS]

  your family all smaller suggest you yeah they're they're also sometimes saying [TS]

  you're a hobbit derived people you can stick with you cannot get your forbidden [TS]

  from getting the giant iPhone too big for you [TS]

  something extremely nerdy I have I just made in Photoshop a quick image mock-up [TS]

  putting the right size rectangle email to myself putting on my iPad it is about [TS]

  four point eight inches diagonally maybe a little big I would say four point like [TS]

  65 is because I can see them going for the iPad plus I don't know you're [TS]

  holding in front of your printed it out can you can you help that I emailed the [TS]

  image to my iPad so I could look at it honestly isn't that much bigger like [TS]

  it's not help the Lumia 920 like the big monster Windows Phones know only that [TS]

  very first one that was not as it is not a monster 27 I have helped the big [TS]

  monster phone and there's something to be said for like to feel like you could [TS]

  you could fend off a mugger with this like it's it's a little bit heavier like [TS]

  but it's just it just it feels your hand more than a dozen I think some people [TS]

  just like that I i wouldn't like I can imagine that in a pocket like the small [TS]

  form factor but I think some people like the better ones and it definitely [TS]

  definitely has a different feel like if you have it there on your screen cut out [TS]

  a piece of paper like me you know make your own little papercraft iPhone plus a [TS]

  blog post but you holding it in there you go [TS]

  but again he can't be the one holding it cuz he's Hobbit sized yeah well [TS]

  she should actually talk like that I'm adorable the fan to fan movie fans so [TS]

  you use of online apparently I click on the links on your wife posted a picture [TS]

  of a baby looking at a fan I look at that [TS]
