They don't need the majors label anymore. They can deal with the streaming services themselves, or even with the public directly.
Take a look at this Google Python Class video: it will get you immediately up & running: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKTZoB2Vjuk
I suppose they modulate the magnetometer with a transphasic ringtone, while diverting power from the non essential functions to the positioning system, and firing a synchronized serie of photon beams trough the back facing camera's LED. To activate, just say: "Engage".
No Apple fan here, but... What if Apple would presents something like the Renault Twizy? Using the Apple's "cool factor" to promote a new kind of mobility could be an interesting phenomenon. A small, light, electric quasi-car, that could me more than enough for a lot of commuters. But I thought about this with Jobs at the helm; now with Tim Cook - or, anyone else non-Jobs - I think it will be even more improbable than before. Just saying.
People just need to learn to drive efficiently, if they want to consume less. You can't expect to just buy a Prius, drive like a mad man and burn like the EPA numbers. But, if you drive with a grain of salt, you CAN even exceed EPA numbers. A lot of hybrid drivers do that. In addition EPA numbers are just the results for a standardized set of tests, with some additional corrective factors. Depending on where you live, how's your commute, etc., you situation may approach more or less that scenario.
Check this out (it's free, of course): http://mark0.net/soft-twin-e.html I made it 17 years ago, and it would be nice to know it's still useful to someone!
:) It case of error, it retries some times to read the sector; if it keep trowing errors, it continue nonetheless, and create a disk image with all that was possible to read.
I host a mirror of Stan's site. It has not beep updated in the last couple years, but near all the content is there: http://www.exe64.com/mirror/wokfi/
I'm skeptical. In this interview from October 2010, he doesn't seem to be in any special relation with Apple. http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-20020465-56.html
Yes, that too. But a well-made Froyo would have probably been enough, for me at last. But Motorola released something really sub par, in addition to being late. I have no idea if they plan to release a fixed version, but considered they biblical times, I think it's irrelevant.
Motorola's long awaited Froyo update for the original Milestone was bad. Really bad! That convinced me to try CynogenMod 7, and it's just great: phone is faster, batteries last more, everything seems to be working just fine.
arcticstoat writes "Forget Farmville, Flash puzzlers and 8-bit home computer emulators. The next generation of browser games will be able to take advantage of DirectX 11 effects, not to mention multi-core processing and both Havok and PhysX physics effects. A new browser plug-in called WebVision will be available for Trinergy's new game engine, Vision Engine 8. This will enable game developers to port all the advanced effects from the game engine over to all the common browsers. Of course, any budding 3D-browser-game dev will face the problem that not every PC has a decent graphics card that can handle advanced graphics effects. Not only that, but limited bandwidth will also limit what effects a developer can realistically implement into a browser game. Nevertheless, this is an interesting development that could result in some tight 3D programming, as well as some much more interesting browser games."
An anonymous reader writes "Homeopathic remedies work no better than placebos, and so should no longer be paid for by the UK National Health Service, a committee of British members of parliament has concluded. In preparing its report, the committee, which scrutinizes the evidence behind government policies, took evidence from scientists and homeopaths, and reviewed numerous reports and scientific investigations into homeopathy. It found no evidence that such treatments work beyond providing a placebo effect." Updated 201025 19:40 GMT by timothy: This recommendation has some people up in arms.
