and? what did these people expect? its a comedy making fun of a dbag dictator. It would be like people in the 30s complaining about the great dictator being culturally insensitive. my response is who cares if it is? its not supposed to be, nor, did the last time i checked required to be.
Im going into it knowing its gonna be crap, but im sure i will still find it funny
this raises the issue again of the always-on-line model for current gen gaming.
Now that would have been an excellent point to make, and a DDoS attack would be a good way to demonstrate the point.
Anyway, I'm holding out for a Commodore smart phone!
Kodak is ok for that but I always wondered why Radio Shack didn't make their own branded smartphones. Realistic was a decent name back in the day, and unlike Kodak they actually sold phones.
I don't think we should be teaching our kids exponential running time O(n^2) algorithms.
Call me liberal, but I don't think we should be teaching our kids improper definitions for "exponential" *or* myths that O(n^2) algorithms like bubble sort are bad.
Quick: which is going to be faster to sort a list of 4 items, bubble sort or randomized partition merge sort? What's that you say? Proper algorithm selection requires more than knee-jerk application of platitudes? Exactly.
Except it doesn't run iOS, which means it's not an iPad mini. Someone who wants for a Playstation 4 for Christmas doesn't want an Xbox One.
Yes, but Christmas shopping implies that someone else is going to make that purchase for you, and iPad Minis are vastly overpriced.
If you were my relative, this is the tablet I'd get you. It's far cheaper than the iPad Mini. Its screen is almost one inch bigger than the iPad Mini. And its battery lasts a hell of a lot longer too.
The base iPad Mini 2 lists at $299 and was as low as $229 during recent sales; the N1 is launching at $249.
That's probably why the author of the article talked about the base iPad Mini 3, not the iPad Mini 2.
The new Nokia N1 tablet, apparently. At just $250 with 32GB of storage — as opposed to the iPad Mini 3’s base price of $400 for the 16GB model — the Nokia N1 is definitely priced to sell.
And yes, from Apple's own comparison page, there doesn't seem to be any difference between the iPad Mini 2 and the iPad Mini 3. But to be fair to Nokia, its specs are superior to the iPad Mini 2 and 3.
And also, the Android tablets are the ones that initially embraced the 7 inch to 8 inch sizes, so one could say that Apple is the one that cloned those tablets from Asus, Samsung, HTC, and LG. But then again, a specs side-by-side comparison of Nokia's new tablet wouldn't look as good against the newer Android tablets made other manufacturers. Not to mention, the word "iPad" still has the most mind share, where it comes to people talking about tablets in general.
I just can't help but imagine a bunch of Norks gathered around a Tandy 1000 hooked up to an acoustic modem with an egg timer. Every 10 minutes they switch off. "Ok, now you a hacker."
Smug sense of superiority. Are you an American by any chance?
Yes N. Korea is poor, but do not underestimate your enemies. Look at what they've actually done instead of making fun blindly.
Training people in C and Linux and Windows exploits is not all that hard or expensive compared to, say, building your own nuclear warheads and ICBMs. Former can be done for a few million bucks. The latter costs billions and the engineering is orders of magnitude harder than teaching coding.
In case you didn't know, the Norks managed to build their own nukes and also put a satellite in orbit using their own rocket recently.
