Be sure to hump your xBONE though..... as the ever loving Microsoft will save you.
Because ram is cheaper than flash.
You need to learn electronics.
Opaque white will work and allow it to act as the sensor.
unless the camera is designed without an IR filter, that trick does not work. And I would not use a black slider but an opaque white one. let it extend to the edge of the LCD to collect light from the screen and completely pollute the visual area of the camera sensor along with being opaque it will eliminate any trickery while being super cheap to put in place. less than $1.00 each in quantity.
Most do this, it is an apple supplier design that is falling down by cutting a corner. Most webcams do keep the sensor powered down as they generate heat and cause video noise the hotter they get, plus in a laptop it sucks up power.
Whoever designed the old macbook camera was just dumb and used the wrong lead for the LED. OR they did it on purpose if you are a tinfoil hat crowd... Damn Masons and their alien artifacts!
Brain dead easy to do, put the slider behind the glass, it can be a 0.01mm thick film with a tiny rubber nub to move it. Any 1st year engineering student could figure this out.
Actually Jesus was about 5 feet tall, and all bitcoins that are possible can fit on a single hard drive. So in fact Jesus is still far larger than bitcoin. This is assuming he is still "living". otherwise a human turned to ashes/dust fits in a 6"X4"X4" cube that is still larger than a hard drive.
I suggest using several 1980's hard drives to make bitcoin bigger than Jesus.
So you are going to pay for a loaf of bread with your American eagle gold coin? Awfully expensive bread, because I'm not making change. A lot of libertarians are pretty dumb going nuts buying gold and silver, you are buying it at the highest inflated prices and IF the economy collapses it will drop in value like a stone. so your $1000 an ounce gold becomes worth about $5.00 an ounce as trading coins.
Worst investment in your life is gold and silver right now because it is overinflated.
The problem was not Quicktime and Mpeg. Mpeg has always supported all the way up to 1920X1080p Mpeg2 Was designed for this, Mpeg1 was designed to support up to 720X480 the full video resolution of it's time.
the problem was that the only low bandwidth video at that time was the horrid "realmedia" format that was designed to be crap from day one.
"BitCoin looks like it was designed as a weapon intended to damage central banking and money issuing banks"
This is a GOOD thing, a very VERY good thing. Central banking is designed to only make a very very small number of people insanely wealthy and powerful. Only power hungry scumbags bent on world domination would be against this.
Yes I do. I see it every frigging day. $5250 a year when you are making $12,000 a year and most of that goes to rent alone... do some basic math and you will understand. Why do people like you think that food is the only expense? Housing, heat, transportation take up 70%-80% of a poor family's budget. $6000 in rent alone in a small crack shack apartment in the bad part of town, $1500 a year to pay for bus fare back and forth to work, so to afford your $5250 they need to make $12750 as TAKE HOME PAY and that leaves zero money for clothing, heat,electric, medical, etc.... That is $7.50 an hour working a full time job at 40 hours a week. After taxes you are bringing home a little less than $12,500. so YOU CAN NOT afford hotdog in mac and cheese.

This is the single most insightful response to this topic in general than anything else on slashdot.
Kudos to you.
Most of the poor cant cook and do not own all the special tools you have to cook with, you going to donate all your pans and utensels to people?
Cheap 1 quart pot to cook in $12.95
Soup for a week $14.00 (assuming 2 cans a day)
Can Opener $5.00
Buying a Mcdonalds $1.00 burger twice a day with a glass of water and a warm place to sit for 3 hours is a LOT cheaper than the $32.00 you need plus a place to live to cook it with things like spoons and a stove.
I'm thinking you have no clue as to how poor people in the bottom 20% really are. These people are on the street. and that 650 calorie burger will keep them alive longer than anything else they can afford.
Cooking at home is for the upper 80% those on the bottom are doomed to crap quality nutrition.
"Wow....where do you live where junk food is cheaper than healthy, home cooked veggies, etc?"
the united states.
A meal of fresh fruits and veggies plus protien = $4.50
A meal of Ramen noodles = $0.39
A meal of a hot dog cut up in the mac and cheese = $1.20
nearly 40% of Americans cant even afford the luxury meal of the hot dog in mac and cheese.
I am guessing you have zero idea as to what reality is for the bulk of the population, over 50% of your fellow Americans can not afford to eat healthy and a balanced diet.
