If your lynx can't show photos it must be misconfigured.
Shame on samzenpus for thinking everyone is a lemming, especially on Slashdot.
Come off it, everybody on Slashdot is a lemming.
Just a different flavoured one.
The term shuttle in murican terms is a piloted thing that lands under control.
So the STS wasn't a shuttle? (The "pilot"s job consisted of pressing the de-orbit button, then when close enough to the ground pressing the "wheels down" button).
2) Traveling to a foreign country where the requisite power adapters have not been acquired or failed to make it into the pack. Bonus for traveling through intermediate countries that have different plugs than your source or destination.
Brute force can often deal with this problem. (French "type C" plugs can be forced into quite a large number of sockets that they're not supposed to be. http://www.worldstandards.eu/e... ).
If I'm wrong and a light tap will always work, and a swipe will never be broken up into multiple gestures or ignored altogether, and so on, then I'd be delighted, albeit surprised the technology isn't being used anywhere else.
The N900 does have a stylus, but, personally, I only used it for non-mobile versions of some websites or running X programs that weren't written for touch screens.
Probably the reason the technology is not used elsewhere is that the screen is pretty fragile -- it's plastic, not glass, and soft plastic at that. Scratches do build up, and screen protectors do reduce sensitivity.
Also the N900 is single touch -- the dual touch "magic" didn't exist when the N900 was made.
An E90 is pretty good for protecting anything -- it's one of those phones that double as a PDW.
The N900/Neo900 keyboard is not as good as the E90, but it's about the 2nd best phone keyboard.
Nobody in their right mind uses their cellphone to "paint" pictures. But everyone uses it to dial numbers, browse websites, and other activities that require a finger, or two, rather than a stylus.
Fingers work perfectly well on the n900 resistive screen.
The neo900 should be better (dual-touch).
'd want them to have at least produced a distribution or version of a distribution without the non-free pieces. That way I'd at least know that its unlikely anything is spying on me (other than tracking when the phone is on).
You can, AFAIK, do non-accelarated graphics with no closed code. Don't know about WIFI.
I'm also assuming here the GSM modem doesn't have access to the CPU, ram, or flash on the device.
Your assumption is correct.
The point is that the modem chip, even when on, has no access to the phone's memory. It's an external device.
Urgh. I hate stupid made up names.
The Queen can't veto a law by withholding her assent, because it's just not done.
And, just to remind her of this, there is a statue of Oliver Cromwell just outside the house of Commons.
A locked cockpit door could have prevented 9/11
And, since 9/11 has been a contributory cause to at least two crashes. (Helios Airways 522 and Germanwings 9525).
(P.S. before somebody trots out the old "9/11 was the last time a plane could be hijacked" meme check it out --- there have been 10s of hijackings since 9/11).
Nobody rides trains.
Hey, I've ridden that train.
It's a reasonable way for getting between Washington and New York, 3 hours and 20 minutes for $86 (vs 2h46 for $158 on the Accela).
You are rejecting the results of an empirical study because you don't like the conclusion. What "logic".
In Japan, in Korea, in China they do not have AA --- and their economies are growing leaps and bounds and everybody can attest to their technological achievements
In Japan? Economy growing leaps and bounds? Where have you been for the last 20 years?
