bats feed on mosquitoes bats live in caves where they poop bat poop makes classic black powder. what will we kill the zombies with when we need to make our own gunpowder and bullets (assuming that the factories that produce smokeless powder are not resurrected and the chemicals for smokeless powder are not available)
471 million potatos is a lot of potatos.
.2mm bits of plastic is enough to cover in plastic all of the living rooms in California.
Wait - no - one living room. Or about a dinner-plates worth a day.
Every day. That's the difference.
Even assuming that it's a dinner plate sized amount of pollution, over two decades, you are looking at 7300 dinner plates. Only, broken into little chunks, easily consumed by aquatic life and smothering plants, clogging pipes etc.
Edge, as in, backbone, edge, and access. Infrastructure folks frequently talk about the edge. Look it up.
And Tech Crunch has a better description of their offering: Druva Wants To Make Backup Tape History By Moving Server Backup To Cloud
that link includes smartphone sliders. http://www.lg.com/us/cell-phones/lg-VN271-extravert is the verizon popular 'feature' phone
the highly rated models i think are good enough. qwerty slider keyboards i prefer to 'swype'
The people who are the most qualified to tell us about the climate are corporate execs and economists who *really really want* global warming to be not real. If someone tries to pull you out of that protective bubble, the best thing you can do is close your eyes, cover your ears, and yell LA LA LA as loudly as possible.
From what people are writing here, there are multiple definitions of "perfectly well". Someone in an above thread complains that capacitive screens require only the lightest touch, ensuring that they make mistakes when trying to use their fingernail to accurately press a specific pixel.
That, to me, says that the N900 and Neo900 do not have "touch" sensitive displays, they require pressure. I'm finding it improbable (and I'm willing to be proven wrong, but I'm increasingly sceptical as this videophilesque discussion continues) that the usual range of gestures we've come to know and, yes, love, are going to work nearly as well on that type of screen.
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.
IIRC there was a raw feed dump where everything going into the database was shown live -- i don't recall the url for it, but now they have the firehose... too lazy to check the source for how they do it, and google was no help finding it.
RTMP is a Flash thing, not a W3C/HTML5 thing. The HTML5 thing that's being standardized (possibly defacto, I'm not sure) is HLS, but as of now only one desktop browser supports it. I'm not away of any desktop browsers that support RTMP.
I'm going to be honest, the more I read this discussion, the move I'm thrown back to old "debates" between advocates of rear projection and plasma TVs, and LCDs, all bemoaning the rise of the latter against such superior technologies as a TV that can only be viewed from one angle (and then not all at the same time), or a TV that requires all 4:3 content be shown in stretch-o-vision to avoid temporary burn-in issues. "But LCDs have a tiny bit of light visible when they're supposed to be black!" screams the videophiles, apparently oblivious to the fact that normal people rarely watch TV in rooms with no ambient light.
The resistive screen they're describing is clearly inferior to capacitive when applied to real world applications. 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.
But, hey, for the 0.01% of users who do actually use their cellphones more as an easel than a phone, I guess it might be useful.
1. Does touch work, or is a stylus in practice mandatory?
2. Does multi-touch work?
I think that is the content industry view, however rotten it might be. The idea is that if you damaged or lost a book (or some other physical item that's hard to copy), you wouldn't expect to have any choice but to buy a new copy, so why should you have a choice other than paying for replacement with music or videos?
It has a resistive touchscreen. What's more they're saying they're going for resistive because it's "more accurate" than capacitive and capacitive would be a "step back."
I had a Nokia N800 so am familiar with the history of this platform, but it always felt like a prototype to me, and it seems like the Neo900 is still a prototype of something that would have been released ten years ago. What a shame.
