Why is this a big deal anyway? Couldn't you personalize the icons any. I'm sure that Windows always had the ability to add custom UI anyway, so what does it matter what the defaults look like.
It's said the only atomic particles exhibit the wave/partial duality answer large objects like people not so much. But what if you aggregate all of positions of ones self across all universes. If a person is sitting in a chair in his bedroom in pn universe would he be sitting in the exact same chair in the same way in all others? Perhaps in some you are an inch to the left, in others across the room. And still ib other across town. Like an electron you exact position is not certain across all universes.
They used a bunch of off the shelf digital cameras, but also the blend frames together to create frames in between. Not to mention post processed image stabilization and color correction.
I think it was Apple that started naming their products the same name. If I told you that a bought an iMac which one do you think i was refering to? The one from last year? From 5 years ago? The one from 15 years ago? All called iMac. even the "G3"
,"G4" and G5" are not officially part of the name.
How about MicroMV, VFD analog floppy disks, and their weird removable hard disk camcorder. Too obscure?
I know that there two different things but between smartTV and 3DTV I'd rather be forced to buy a 3DTV. At least you could turn the 3D off, and know that it was off.
I remember voice recognition was cool. Back in the early 90s I was messing around voice recognition in high school. It wasn't perfect but surely in the 2 decades CPUs have gotten fast enough with their dual cores and quad cores to handle voice without calling home. What happened?
One of my favorite DVDs, not movies, has got to be Beastie Boys Video Anthology. It's one of the most feature rich DVDs that I own and if a group were to release a collection of videos this is how it should be done. Some of the video not only include multiple angles, but multiple remixes on the language tracks.
Does such a display exists? I always assumed that that's what they were doing. I can imagine that it would much more. It might be cheaper to use one small 4K display than 2 smaller 1080p ones.
You know Android has folders well before iOS did. Besides' whem you disable an app you clear up cache and user data. a small amount compared to the app size, but it does free up RAM. Especially the services that run in the background, like live wallpaper.
Remember when America Online bought TimeWarner? That actually happened. Almost as crazy as being bought by the parent company of DC Comics.
Are you refering to the Commodore CDTV and the CD32. Game systems so obscure that even among rare system collectors it hardly gets mentioned. Even the Bandai/Apple Pippin gets more recognition.
I bought PC about 5 years ago that I use primarily for gaming. But I've also used it to make a little money on the side. Pretty much paid for itself. Aren't too many games that do that. Not without a RMAH at least.
(Mind you, I'm not a history buff so I might be dead wrong on the whole issue. I'm bored and I like this tangent.) But isn't that what we do anyway. Pick and choose parts of other cultures that we find appealing and assemilate them into our own. And we ignore the stuff we don't agree with. Isn't that the whole "melting pot" idea? Even cultures that, by OP's definition, we find inferior. Some of the things that are at the core of our culture came from cultures that would be "inferior". I know I keep bringing that word back, I didn't chose it, but it implies a value judgement of worthlessness, something to be ignored. Do we ignore a whole culture because we find part undesirable? History disagrees.
But is it really relevant what one culture considers moral, particularly if you deem the whole culture inferior, as opposed to just parts of it.
