Le déclin de l'iPod Conséquences conjuguées de l'émergence de l'iPhone et de la croissance soutenue du Mac, l'iPod pèse de moins en moins lourd dans les comptes d'Apple. Il y a deux ou trois ans de cela, les ventes de baladeurs étaient quasiment la statistique la plus importante pour la firme de Cupertino. Ce n'est plus le cas aujourd'hui. Lors du dernier trimestre, les ventes d'iPod ne représentaient que 14 % du chiffre d'affaires d'Apple (à condition de comptabiliser les ventes d'iPhone sur le trimestre et non sur deux ans comme Apple le fait), soit respectivement 10 et 18 points de moins qu'il y a un et deux ans. [MAJ] Toujours en utilisant la même méthode comptable, voici le poids de chaque produit d'Apple dans son chiffre d'affaires lors du dernier trimestre de l'exercice 2008. C'est la première fois que l'iPhone passe devant le Mac. Sur le même sujet : - 2008 : Les ventes d'Apple à la loupe

World Association for Sustainable Development World Resources Institute WBCSD-SNV Alliance: Creating inclusive business opportunities by linking local communities with big business Focal lance ses enceintes USB pour Mac et iPod par Florian Innocente le 27 octobre 2008 à 15:04 Le Focal XS, ce système audio conçu à la fois pour le Mac et les iPod/iPhone a entamé sa phase de commercialisation. D'aucuns auront pu le découvrir en avant-première lors de la dernière Apple Expo. Le système se compose de deux satellites et d'un gros caisson de basses (un bon 8 Kg). Particularité de l'un des satellites, il intègre un connecteur Dock pour recevoir un iPhone ou un iPod (touch 1G/2G, nano 2G/3G, 5G et classic) et le recharger tandis que l'on peut jouer son contenu ou le synchroniser avec le Mac. Une entrée mini-jack sur ce satellite permet le raccordement de tout autre baladeur que ceux d'Apple. Ce Focal XS développe 2x30W pour les satellites (réponse en fréquence de 150Hz - 20kHz) et 70W pour le subwoofer (39Hz - 150Hz).

Sustainable food What you can do – and ask others to do – to help make our food and farming system fit for the future Sustain’s working definition, developed in consultation with our membership of expert organisations, is that of "healthy and sustainable food" - in other words, good food - should be produced, processed, bought, sold and eaten in ways that: Provide social benefits, such as safe and nutritious products, and improve people’s experiences of good quality food, for instance by growing and cooking it, which helps to enrich our knowledge and skills, and our cultural diversity; Contribute to thriving local economies that create good jobs and secure livelihoods – both in the UK and, in the case of imported products, in producer countries; Enhance the health and variety of both plants and animals (and the welfare of farmed and wild creatures), protect natural resources such as water and soil, and help to tackle climate change. In practice this means: Aiming to be waste-free Getting the balance right

Project on Climate Change · Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies April 09 2014 | Research Reports New Commentary Urges Climate Scientists to “Set the Record Straight” We just published a commentary in Earth’s Future, a new online, open-access journal published by the American Geophysical Union. The commentary is entitled: “Climate Scientists Need to Set the Record Straight: There is a scientific consensus that human-caused climate change is happening.” In the commentary, we argue that the climate science community needs to do more to communicate the scientific consensus because: (a) most Americans don’t know there is a scientific consensus on this point; (b) this lack of awareness undermines people’s engagement in the issue; and (c) research by our team – and others – has shown that simple messages that communicate this basic scientific conclusion are highly effective, especially with political conservatives. We encourage you to download the commentary and join the effort to set the record straight. Continue reading Continue reading Continue reading Topics

La recherche Google, un danger pour la planète ? Quel point commun entre un personnage virtuel de Second Life et un habitant du Brésil ? Tous deux consomment en moyenne la même quantité d'électricité chaque année, une comparaison qui illustre la voracité énergétique d'internet. Pour " vivre ", les " avatars " de Second Life ont en effet besoin de centres de données géants (les " data centers "), qui alignent sur des milliers de mètres carrés des câbles et des ordinateurs aux capacités de calcul phénoménales, stockent et transmettent sans discontinuer les données des internautes du monde entier. Réduire la consommation de ces gigantesques " fermes informatiques " est justement l'un des défis du secteur des hautes technologies, réuni cette semaine au salon Cebit de Hanovre (nord). Les comparaisons ne manquent pas. Siegfried Behrendt, chercheur de l'institut de recherche berlinois IZT, a calculé que télécharger sur son ordinateur la version électronique de son quotidien préféré consommait autant d'électricité que de faire une lessive.
