Pretty crazy to think he wrote an OS in 35 days. How long did it take Linus to write linux?
USA! USA! USA! USA!
Pretty good take on the whole cable thing. http://brockerhoff.net/blog/2012/09/13/boom-2/ From the article: People keep asking why Apple didn’t opt for the micro-USB connector. The answer is simple: that connector isn’t smart enough. It has only 5 pins: +5V, Ground, 2 digital data pins, and a sense pin, so most of the dock connector functions wouldn’t work – only charging and syncing would. Also, the pins are so small that no current plug/connector manufacturer allows the 2A needed for iPad charging. Note that this refers to individual pins; I’ve been told that several devices manage to get around this by some trick or other, but I couldn’t find any standard for doing so.
I would love to see this into implementation so many years from now, but the problem is the cable companies. They don't want to upgrade their infrastructure so they compress their signal and current HDTV looks like crap on some channels. Until cable companies won't compress their signal then i'm not interested. I guess it's also fair to say that channels have to start delivering in HDTV as well too!
I don't mind paying the sales tax if I could get same day delivery with Amazon Prime.
This reminds me of that show Iron Chef. I loved watching the Japanese version with the dubs just like 'Ninja Warrior'. But when they made American versions, I thought it was just utter crap and couldn't stand watching it.
Because your fingers dont have any natural oils on it right? The kindle is also not backlit. It's e-ink.
I completely agree with trying to make Kindle another tablet! It's a book reader for god's sake. The one thing I want it to do it does well. I have the 2nd gen Kindle and did not want to buy the current generation since mine works great still. I wanted to skip a generation until I upgraded my Kindle. Now I'm not so sure I want to upgrade if they release a touchscreen version.
Am I the only one who doesn't want a touchscreen kindle? I do not want to see my finger prints all over the screen while I try to read a book.
'out of respect for our past and present men and women in uniform.' So should we not play as Nazi's and Japanese in WW 2 games?
He definitely was not taking pictures of people in an inappropriate and harassing manner. http://www.flickr.com/photos/thomashawk/2751554048/ As you can see it's definitely taking pictures of people in an inappropriate manner right? He tried to convey that to the director, but the director refused to view his pictures.
