There are top developers everywhere, not just in SF or Seattle or NY. But not everyone wants to work at giant companies, some would rather work for a small team that does great work but doesn't burn itself out. Some people like living in smaller towns. Some people want a life outside of a job as well. Some would prefer working in a startup where they can make a huge difference and do something amazing. I think a lot of those companies aren't any better at evaluating talent than anyone else and often succeed due to market position, luck, being first to something, or something other than simply hiring "top" talent.
... we can't tell.
Having worked on an MMO with customers all over the world latency is a huge problem. We had a hard enough time getting people to properly run around without all sorts of predictions on the client side often leading to seemingly irrational behavior. I shoot you then you shoot me but I die and you don't. This sort of thing would only work if the servers were everywhere and you only communicated with them nearby.
... apparently don't make Smart Cards.
I made a D in Comparative Anatomy. Me and my lab partner's dissected cat vanished right before the final and we couldn't use it to study so I flunked the test. In Organic Chemistry lab the prof was the pre-med advisor and had a perverse sense of humor, like he would wander into the lab and with an obvious flourish pull out a test tube and scrape some random stuff into it and wander out looking innocent. I did OK with my work (we had something like 5 unknowns to identify) but one of them was changed after I nearly passed out working with it. The TA looked it up, asked the prof, and then got me another one. Apparently the original had some nasty side effects.
...and not mention what kind of phone it is? The people who want to argue want to know.
... when Space Camp is in Space.
I can imagine the same people collecting all of our online data now adding offline conversations to it. Imagine adding this to an insect sized flying drone and releasing many of them into your city. The could go anywhere and record anything.
Blur is definitely a real slowdown, we deliberately used our own nav bars to avoid it. It's especially sluggish on any scrolling list. Of course this is not turned on for iPhone 4. You also have to realize that this OS is so new we didn't have a new beta for the last month before it was released and that meant no time to really optimize anything. Even Apple barely got it completed enough to ship. On the iPad it's still beta as far as I can see. They only started the whole UI transition in Nov of last year and that simply wasn't enough time to get everything optimized. Changing the UI and much of the frameworks underlying an OS in less than a year has never been done to this level. It amazes me it works at all. Still it will take a few updates until it catches up. By then you won't notice issues any more. Remember how long it took MS to go from XP to Win 7?
The included post url no longer has any details, does anything know of a copy?
Plus we still have no actual proof that he was killed. He might have already been dead long ago, or maybe he showed up at his funeral in a wig.
I'm old enough at 55 to remember the past, and yes I did love APL briefly but lamenting that the present isn't like the past is like wishing it was 1850 again so you could have slaves do all your work. Neither the web nor the modern mobile application is anything like the past, and what we use to write that code today is nothing like what I started with. Trying to relive the past is why old programmers get a reputation for being out of touch. The past is important in that I learned a lot then that still rings today but I can say that about every year since I started. Today is a new day everyday.
Is there any warm place that doesn't spy on its citizens?
If the vacuum starts looking like a giant metal guy with a glowing center light maybe they should rethink this idea.
It looks like the pilot came in too steep and managed to slap the tail on the end of the jetty which likely broke it off and this would have made the rest of the landing uncontrollable. I always wondered what might happen if a plane came in short on that runway.
