Unless they had a high suspicion that e-readers cause poor retention then why even study it unless they were skewed from the start? This is like pitting peanut butter cookies versus chocolate chip cookies as cancer cures. You'll likely find that one works better than the other just by chance, but the fact is that neither of them has any cancer curing effect whatsoever. It's a suspicious, stupid study.
A gyroscope can measure absolute orientation in the absence of a gravitational field.
What's obvious is that we can continue to get smaller and more powerful than what we have already. Do you doubt that in a year's time, let alone five, computers will be smaller, more powerful, and consume less energy? And then there are mobile devices, which have a LONG way to go, especially in regards to batteries. Thinking that we've already reached the limits of speed and size is laughable. It really is up there with "shut down the patent office because everything has been invented" attitude.
Yes. Next question please.
I'm in my thirties and I haven't been paid by cheque... ever. It's always been direct deposit.
Absolutely. They should be punished for their flagrant false advertising.
I never understood this. Teams of engineers cram the electronics into the smallest, lightest case they can, and then the end users goes and shoves it in a 1/4" thick rubber sleeve.
Home routers fail after a few years anyway so most home users are probably IPV6 ready.
If this spells death to those ridiculous smilies then it's ok with me.
It's hella lame.
Virtually every written form I've had to fill in has sucked just as badly. None of them provide enough space for the information asked. Even with things like phone numbers they won't give you enough room. They also force you to incorrectly summarize things, such as education. Do you have a masters, bachelor's degree, or high school diploma? Check one. It's ridiculous, but so far I've only ever had to fill them out AFTER I've gone for an interview and they only want them for their HR files.
With that logic then EVERYTHING on an HD screen is 1080. Go ahead, count the physical pixels.
I'm for it. Blatant false advertizing needs to be punished and this is the route that's available to him.
Pictures and video are used in court but someone testifies that it hasn't been modified. If the defense argues that it has been modified then a jury weighs the merits of that claim.
The same way that Avatar was just computer animation, like Toy Story.
