It's quite something when Hitler is less willing to horribly kill soldiers to save his county than the US was to horribly murder civilians to test it's nukes.
I'm sure there will be a day when a basic chair can be printed for $5. Advances in material sciences and printers are required, but the demand is there and it doesn't seem like an insurmountable problem.
Where I work they would just trust me to behave and learn. No need to waste time writing a report to prove it, I can just divulge that information as required.
The problem is that Kickstarter allows projects that are very obviously doomed to failure and doesn't act when it is pointed out. They should protect naÃve investors.
There was one recently for an AA battery that can be recharged in 30 seconds. It's basically a capacitor and regulator. People pointed out that at the $20 price point he set for one he couldn't buy any available capacitor that meet his claim of 1100mAh. Worse, he would need to charge at over 150A to get the time down to 30 seconds.
He flapped around, eventually found some surplus 150A power supplies and intends to ship them with the batteries for $20. Some people will probably burn their houses down since he can't possibly afford a descent connector.
People pointed all this out and Kickstarter did nothing. Other projects defy the known laws of physics, or don't even make sense (did you see the "internet battery"?)
Even eBay tries harder to shut down scams and sellers who are clueless.
Actually the Android implementation is rather good. Samsung tried to do their own thing which had some issues, but then switched to the stock driver and now all is well.
The system works well not just with computers but also with things like car head units and printers. You can plug in and print directly from your phone just like a camera. No special extra expensive iPrinter required.
I'll take it over the abomination that is iTunes any day.
Are you kidding? The iPhone is a fashion accessory to many, and not having one is the equivalent of not wearing Prada when all the cool kids are. It's the hipster clique phone, for people who think different and are not part of the herd.
There are more Android devices to choose from. Choice is good for consumers, but means that individual models can't hit Apple's numbers.
Who cares anyway? This is a bizarre pissing contest if ever I saw one. Millions of people watch reality TV, that doesn't make it good.
The iPhone is faster in artificial benchmarks but if you compare real world performance like opening apps or app switching it's slower. It was the same with the Nexus 5 and iPhone 5S.
There ate plenty of videos on YouTube demonstrating this.
It's climate change because some morons look out the window, see that it's cold today and decide that global warming must be fake.
While the global climate is warming, the effect locally at any given time may not be warming. It sometimes causes more extreme weather, including cold. Hence, climate change.
Problem is there are no trusted third parties any more. Pretty much anyone could be lent on by governments demanding access to keys and gagging them from warning users. There is also the risk of hacking my GCHQ/NSA/etc.
There are loads of free scheduling apps that can do this automatically for you.
My girlfriend has an iPad Air bought in January. She says it's slower after the update.
I think that's two words. At least one and a half.
Maybe he could just train some US citizens to be better than just OK.
