I found DS9 to be unwatchable nonsense, Sisko as a predestined mystic saviour of the Bajorans. I mean come on.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
1080 is ridiculous as-is nobody is ever going to benefit from or notice any difference.
1080 is the Full HD video format that these phones can now record.
Displaying the video you just shot makes sense - at the same pixel count without scaling.
I wonder what the power drain is on these things - GPU wise.
I'm mean if the inbuilt camera shoots video at 1080 and the screen is 1440, then the system is upscaling during playback.
Porting the android userland, if that's your thing, ought to be simple enough, given Firefox 2.1 is Kitkat underneath.
Some people have a knack of cracking their screen. Pockets, people!
I'm a clumsy oaf but the only time I've dropped a phone on pavement was texting-while-dogwalking, itself a dangerous activity when fido yanked at the lead.
Very handy when travelling and using a phone for photos instead of a fancy $1000 standalone camera.
Oops, my phone's battery is at 2%, I guess I won't be taking a selfie of the Taj Mahal this evening.
That means you have to now charge 2 devices overnight but with the high capacity ones having 10000 mAh or more, you can camp for a weekend without power.
Isn't that a goal of Google's Project Ara?
Who said anything about a mouse? People write with a whiteboard marker, or in its digital form, a stylus.
A number of years ago I worked for an organisation where people took notes in meetings using a Panasonic Toughbook. The software for the forthcoming Windows 10 is, hopefully, a lot more sophisticated than XP tablet edition as MS tune their software for touch/scribble.
soylent news readers (all 5000 of them!) were having a chuckle about that.
Slashcode is open source, from which the soylentils forked the code and have an active repository on github.
Meanwhile, the Slashdot website runs on an a bastardised version.
Not a fan of the mighty ducks trilogy?
How his brother Charlie ever became a star is a bigger mystery.
I think I prefer Steve Martin's The Man wth Two Brains.
Richard Nixon almost won an election with Bender's body.
I thought it was just a running gag for the MS Browser Engine story but it seems to have infected the rest of the site!
Yes, the current generation Silvermont Atoms are (I believe) all 64bit.
(You might still find prev-gen Saltwells in tablets and phones)
Intel won't kill off x86 entirely - they have their Quark project for Internet of Things.
The problem I was referring to is some Pentiums are Haswell based (core), while others are Silvermont based(atom).
Similarly, there exist both Core and Atom Celerons.
