Can't you restore an old iTunes backup or is that no longer available? Maybe this was back in the days when my wife had an iPhone.
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).
You're also seeing people get annoyed with the latest iOS release and hold off on upgrading or revert back.
Fortunately I have a Beowulf of RPis to cut that time down.
Seriously though, I've been using h.264 MKV files for a number of years even before I owned a RPi and I've never had a problem playing videos aside from slight delays on high bitrate BluRay files.
That's the fault of the processor and not the GPU. People care more about the actual playback performance more than the UI (which could be done via a tablet or laptop anyway). Anyway, the faster performance of the RPi 2 makes this a bit of a moot point.
The first generation Raspberry Pi did SD pretty well and could do HD with a few caveats. The RPi 2 has even more CPU and memory and does quite well with the HD movies I've thrown at it. And it's 1/10 the price of the Intel offering.
I walked right into that one. Well played.
In related news, iPod Touch sales are apparently nonexistent.
Outside of kids, that's probably true.

Pfft. Who reads the articles?
Like I said, this might work if the work were short term. Then again we already have consulting companies for that kind of work and the people that run said companies usually take the place of agents.
Writers, performers, singers, boxers all have agents. I'm not sure if the model works for all those groups of people, but that's what's there. On the other hand, that's mostly because they don't have a regular job - they need someone to find and negotiate the pay for them as they're either otherwise busy working or don't have the skills or contacts to get the work. Maybe if the job were per-project and rockstar developers could come in and guarantee some level of performance for some level of pay negotiated by the agent that could work.
A Class 4 full size SD card. Sounds exactly the same.
Don't get me wrong: the SR-64HXA is overpriced, but don't think that you can get a similar card for $16.
Of course, the company that won the lawsuit wasn't the one who made the invention, or the one who patented it.
Doesn't matter. Patent ownership can be bought and sold and could be considered an investment.
Yeah, I corrected myself later on and didn't go back and change the original statement.
IBM no longer sells desktop and they're getting out of the server market as well, so I think they'll be Lenovo's best customer for the foreseeable future.
As for Oracle, my guess is that these are Big Beefy Machines(tm) used as replacements for the IBM mainframes (which IBM still owns). They probably do use some in their back-end gear, but don't forget that Oracle also owns Oracle Linux and they have their own line of x86 hardware. That's more likely what they have most of.
