At 1:1 ratio you maximize the area for a given diagonal. 26.5" 1:1 is much bigger than 27" 16:9.
I thought that in that movie, the aliens were an ancient civilization (apparently much wiser than ours) whose home planet is Earth. They evolved in the depth of the oceans, became an intelligent species and then a technological one. Later on, humanity is busy doing its mankind stuff (war, pillage etc.) but they're unaware of the deep sea "aliens", separated from us by kilometers of water rather than light-years of empty space.
My guess is $1000. It's where some desirable and uncommon high end stuff is priced (30" monitor, GTX Titan, Intel i7 5960X and Eizo monitors in general)
Run Gnome 2 / Mate on it with top and bottom panels, browser that still has a title bar. There's room to fit everything without making it feel busy, cramped. If a smaller 1440x1440 variant was made you would also have something about perfect to run a maximized browser without messing with scaling etc., which I guess is what most people do regardless of the monitor.
This text does not tell what the balloon is inflated with
I'm not so sure. I think it's for esthetical, psychological, branding reason. Windows 9 feels too close to Windows 8.1.1 and it reads "Windows Nein".
Didn't Firefox made their URL bar "dynamic" and shit before Google Chrome existed?, and had search in the URL bar before it itself existed (in the browser called Mozilla). That is enough. It's easy to go to google's site if you want google to guess what you are trying to type.
I don't use Chrome because I would have to change my motherboard to upgrade to 16GB of RAM.
Chromebooks are laptops, so laptops are being replaced by laptops?
Sure, they're more crippled.
Anyway, Firefox OS is about the same thing as Chrome OS, without requirement for a google account.
Oh, and crap. Who cares if there's 100 million or 200 million or 300 million Firefox user, we will still use it. It's dying because it's not 500 million. Right.
They ran on sparc too.
really, a web browser is a run time for running processor and OS independent code.
But the family PC may be a Core 2 Duo alike at 2.4GHz or similar. The framerates are murdered.
If you know what you're doing you can get away with only doubling that budget (low end mobo, Pentium and one 4GB stick)
I upgraded the firmware on a vid card from 2000, which did what I expected (nothing)
I used to play Quake 1 200 years after it came out. The old glquake port still ran flawlessly, arbitrary resolution and you get to max out AA/AF and have instant loading times on any PC (jadd some gamma correction to see shit). What's more, the game is very worth playing. You need higher than 60Hz refresh to play it well. PC gaming has been through a 60Hz dark age, barely broken by a handful overpriced TN monitors.
There may be a non trivial issue if you take on severe exercise and then shortly ingurgitate a lot of water (distilled or poor in salts), which happens after you sweat a lot of electrolytes. But that'd be your own fault for being dumb. Some people do kill themselves with water poisoning, and that's not distilled water.
The fact it is on a bike makes the air move into it.
