"but growth in Google's primary business, search advertising, has flattened out at about 20 percent a year for the last few years"
So if I understand the summary, google only grows with 20% each year and that is a bad thing?
I would start to worry if it was reduced by 20% every year.
Unfortunately, it's not available for Windows. If you want people to switch from Windows to Linux, have them addicted to open source programs before you switch them over.
Currently using Chrome, Mozilla and Thunderbird, so I'm almost there..
Would love to try Darktable on Windows, but no luck.
Wasn't there talk of an aluminum shortage earlier this year?
Or was it just speculation that Goldman Sachs tried to create a shortage to increase prices?
A bit off topic, but you can read a kindle ebook on a computer, a tablet or a cellphone.
Not sure how long this has been the case, but at least now you can.
I switch between a classic kindle, an ipad and a android phone all the time. Even syncing furthest read page works.
Just like publishers of e-books CAN allow you to lend out a kindle-book to someone.
They don't though.
Granted, I haven't bought many kindle books, but as far as I can see none of my books are lendable.
Can't really say I miss space sci-fi. Sure, I loved stargate universe, firefly and defying gravity, but space is not a necessity for a good sci-fi. Perhaps in some years when they can do something that is actually new. There can be only SO many weekly episodes of yet another planet and/or new aliens.
Speaking of which.. you know they recently revived Red Dwarf? I guess that sort of counts like a space sci-fi.
Haven't actually seen the new episodes yet.. hmm, better get around to that some day.
There were several new shows in the past years. Not many made it though..
From memory, and the amount of scifi might be discussed but in no particular order:
Threshold, Werehouse 13, Defying Gravity, Lost, Person of Interest, Revolution, FlashForward, Eureka, The Event, Fringe, Alcatraz, Stargate Universe, Continuum, Heroes, V (the new one), Dollhouse..
Unless you're a single parent, just have sex. Good way to create a new offsprint, no?
I don't know about asia, but european languages are related in so many ways, so learning one can help you understand things written in another.
For example: Norwegian, Swedish and Danish are so simular that they usually can understand eachother. Icelandic is not that far away. Dutch to me sounds like a mix between German and English. People from Finland usually learn Swedish in school.
Now, I don't speak either of these languages myself, but from what others have told me French, Italian and Spanish are related so much that you can get by in a pinch knowing one of those in one of the other countries.
Switzerland has German and French as languages. Belgium has Dutch, German and French.
It really is fascinating how some of the languages are related.
To waste some time, have a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indo-European_languages
I have learned English and some German, but if I would learn another language it would be Spanish.
Even Vanuatu, where I live, has over 100 spoken languages.
Just out of curiosity (and a slight bit of pedantry
How similar are the languages?
..imperial units in the US
And what about the germans and their QWERTZ?
(That was a problem for me while visiting a german friend, as my password at the time had an Y in it)
3D in a movie should be like the subwoofer/bass in a surround system. It should be tuned so that you don't notice it is there, but you should notice if it is missing.
3D where they have things flying towards you out of the screen is like turning the bass waaaaay up. Tacky and very distracting.
As the previous poster said: good 3D will make the visuals look better. As will a subwoofer do for sound.
Logging traffic is not going to stop someone from doing something stupid, like falling for a scam.
