If 0.05 being approx 2 drinks for a 160lb man is the new legal limit then we're all sort of like Raj and Sheldon who get crazy after the 2nd sip.
Oh yeah I love using HiDPI mode on my 27" iMac to turn a 2560x1440 display into a virtual 1280x720 screen with twice the detail. This lets me sit way back 3-5 feet or more and have a nice readable picture. Helps avoid eye strain and is really nice how crisp everything is. Of course 1280x720 is limiting useable screw space and I occasionally have to switch it back, but I really do prefer to use it whenever possible.
It's sort of the opposite of what a true retina iMac would do for me though.
Seems another pointless law invented just for covering internet cases.
If porn in public is considered a public disturbance or some kind of obscenity then there are already laws to cover this. If someone is reading his flesh magazine in McDonald's and people are disturbed by the images then wouldn't that be enough to either ask him to leave or notify someone?
How is it any different if it's on a laptop verses on paper?
It seems these days everyone has forgotten "Don't compete with your customers".
Microsoft countless times, Zune, Kin, Windows Phone.
Google making Android handsets
Samsung competing with Apple on smart phones.
Netflix and Amazon generating their own content.
At least most of their partners are too stupid or unable to pull out of their existing relationships.
It's news to me that Netflix can pick up new seasons of canceled shows. That's great news for shows that do better on DVD than on the air.
How about able to look into the future and know things, but choosing to sit back and let things play out at times.
What's funny about this article is it's focused on a very limited text based debugging system where the author is already apologizing for bugs while demo'ing it.
It mentions a quote from an Apple guy on the same topic. Wait a minute... Apple is working on this too? So you click the link and find a much better article with a similar system that's way more advanced and live connects the graphics with the code.
Just kind of sad, I RTFA and think "Huh, that's interesting, someday" then check out the link inside the article and find a much more informative and interesting story that I'm still reading. Read THAT article instead. Looking forward to seeing this creep into Xcode updates.
Until the auto-update gives them a new kernel and the video drivers no longer load. I've seen it happen several times with Ubuntu anyways. The user wants to watch movies on their computer but the open driver for their card can't do it without jaggies, so they put in the binary blob. Next thing you know after an update it boots to the console one day.
// Design + Build = Inspire;
I can see why they commented it out.
So every company has a semi-random assortment of software and languages already in use.
They don't want to have someone they need to train a little bit, no they want someone with 3 - 5 years minimum on every single bit of tech they have.
Out of a thousand potential employees there's only going to be a few that hit the magic combination of experiences you want, and dozens who will lie about it.
Oh screw that, if we go global and add a few billion people to the mix we can hit 10x the number of "perfect matches" and lower the salary some more. So what if there's good workers right around the corner who could pick up our system nice and quick, if they want jobs they'll have to move to Australia or something.
I've had that happen to me. Think of it this way, if a street light goes out once in a while and takes a few seconds to turn back on, every night a dozen people could pass under it close enough for it to seem like they caused it. Hundreds of other people would just see a normal light.
Similar to the 9/11/2001 plane crashes, all the sudden hundreds of people claimed to have had premonitions of it. In a country with 300,000,000 people, how many dream of a plane crash on a given night? A few thousand? Now if a plane crash happens in the next week... month? They'll feel like it was connected. Otherwise they'd just forget it as a random dream.
That is what another poster calls confirmation bias. We tend to remember the times things match up, and not notice the hundreds of other times that they didn't.
Those particular lights you seem to have an effect on, keep an eye on them. Try watching from a distance, count how often they flicker or turn off. See if you can make some kind of statistics on it... does it change with your distance from the light? If it seems to happen more on a particular night than others... write down your mood. Also write down the temperature and humidity. Sooner or later a clear pattern will emerge. If it's confirmation bias, then things will pretty much seem random or show a direct connection to the weather. If it seems you having an effect on it, what is the factor behind it? Your distance? Your emotional intensity? What you had for breakfast? You need to get it to where it's repeatable and controllable. At that point you call Randi up and perhaps become a millionaire. Well worth the effort either way.
Acts 24:15 "There will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous"
So it's more like an offsite whole-disk backup. That let's the operator later restore files they may not have originally planned to.
From what I understand VP8 was based on the reference code for MPEG4 but modified to avoid all known patented methods. That seems inherently risky. Why not instead invest in SNOW or other wavelet encoding methods and leap ahead of the current MPEG standard?
Would be nice to have one of these made for computer science problems.
Sure it wasn't a 486DX2 50MHz?
