3D is a gimmick, that just doesn't work well enough, even in a movie theater. 4K is not a gimmick, but the marketing pukes are trying to turn it in to one. 4K will be successful in the home video market, offering a great cinema experience, but as far as broadcast, it will take far too much bandwidth, cost far too much money to implement, and have far too few viewers even capable of watching it for the next 5 years to make it remotely profitable, even for the HBO's, let alone the sports networks. 4K along with 21x9 will be the ultimate viewing experience at home, allowing people at home to experience great movies in the same quality and format as at the theater. But we're just not quite there yet.
Being the 'partner' of a journalist does not entitle you to the normal freedoms of actually being a member of the press, and, as was quite rightly pointed out, the so-called 'Miranda' rights and the freedom of the press as spelled out in the U.S. Constitution does not apply in the UK. The authorities were within their legal authority IF 1) they had bona fide suspicions about this person through evidence collected or supplied, and 2) he can get his stuff back after the authorities have reviewed them and found no contraband or unauthorized data. I would suspect that someone (yes, possibly the NSA) tipped off the UK authorities as to the possibility of this gentleman being a conduit for the transfer of classified information, which is wholly possible given who his 'partner' is and who he has been in contact with. If he was transporting classified information, then I would totally support his earning a one-way ticket to Gitmo.
Here in Maricopa, AZ we host the only ethanol plant in the state of Arizona, and one of the local crops used (grown by Ak-Chin Farms, one of the Indian Reservations that surrounds Maricopa) is sorghum, the same plant you can get molasses from. Much more bang for the buck than corn or sawgrass.
Just send some ocean-going barges out to the North Atlantic Garbage Patch or the Pacific Trash Vortex...right up the greenies alley...
One college I have gone to uses a separate domain for students from faculty and administration, @stu.college.edu versus college.edu. They use firstname.lastname, and then firstname.lastname#. They use Microsoft Exchange. Another college I attend now uses a unique ID created partly out of the firstname and a seemingly random 7-digit number, so John9999876@college.edu. This unique ID is also used to login to the student center to access registration, email, etc. It is different from the actual student ID number. As they use Google Mail, it may be generated by Google. My daughter's university also uses Google Mail, but she was allowed to create her own ID, firstinitialmiddleinitiallastname#.college.edu. In business, I like to use firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, with dupes using full first name or full middle name or both; sometimes using nicknames or fullnames, like bob vs. robert. I try to respect the preferences of the user if possible. You could use any combination of these. You could use child domains based on named colleges within the university, such as wpcarey.asu.edu or engineering.stanford.edu. Or you could come up with an automatic random email ID generator or use mainframe login ID's, etc.
And my Red Stapler, and that's all.
That would have to be on Skin-a-Max...
If there are more engineers, but a lack of jobs, the newly-trained engineers will create startups. Just look at how many startups in this country were created by engineers from other countries who came here because of the lack of opportunity in their home country. Entrepreneurship is the real driver of our economy and of innovation.
And you wonder how the Zombie Apocalypse began...
'The Green Berets' starring John Wayne was the first time I saw it in film.
Well, she may either be misquoted or mispoke; Hp probably has 40-50 Laser Printers, but 50 'different models' or SKU's of each containing different powercords and localization for 50 different languages/locales.
Well, we've all been anxiously awaiting the return of the Wartburg and Trabant, yes?
As an IT worker refugee from LA and San Diego, I can tell you I moved out here and not only immediately made more money than I had been in San Diego, I could afford to live here. I'm a bigger fish in a smaller pond. The tech sector is one area that has been pretty steady through all the downturn. Ebay, Paypal, Expedia, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citibank all have major data center operations here. There are hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies with IT presence here. It's not just Intel with yet another new Fab in Chandler every couple of years. It may be hot as Hades, but land is cheap, power is cheap, connectivity is plentiful, the cost of living is low and the standard of living is high. I miss the ocean, but we have lots of beach.
Once they commercialize this, it will be found to cause cancerous-like growths in the brain and begin the zombie apocalypse!
This article is obviously written by someone who hasn't bothered to take a look at Metro development on Windows Phone. Having a locked-down environment does not prevent anyone from placing free apps in the Marketplace nor providing the source code. Marketplace, like iTunes, does have some control of what can get published, as all apps have to meet established criteria. Tell me, do we really need to tout 500,000 apps, when 100,000 have some sort of flatulence sound as their reason for being? Not having Chrome or Firefox or Opera on Windows Phone bothers me not a bit. The environment is web-based, and the evermore slight variations in the way the different browsers present the display can wreak havoc on the user experience. Microsoft is right to control this. The fact that API's are not available to allow an alternative browser to function on Windows Phone/Windows RT as it would on a full Windows 7/Windows 8 client probably points more to the relative youth of the OS. For once, Microsoft is taking direct control over its future, and following in the footsteps of the beloved Jobs. Windows RT tablets will directly compete with the iPad, and offer pretty much the same user experience. If you want something more robust, use Windows 8. If you want to write more robust applications and provide you sourcecode, write for Windows 8. It will be a much larger audience anyway.
