I had a old 'databank' watch back in the mid 90's ( casio? ) and while i thought it was a great idea when i bought it, " i can have my addresses and stuff in here", after about a month it just ended up being a gaudy way to tell the time that needed batteries.
Unless its something like they had on ARK-II back in the 70's, ( and that would not be too practical ) a smart watch will always be a gimmick, unless there is some sort of way to make the screen appear bigger than it is.
Not being a Luddite, or not 'thinking outside the box', its far to small to be really useful other than for telling time. Just from the proliferation of larger screen phones you can tell that going smaller is not the direction people want to go for usability or functionality.
Sure, you can have alarms, and scrolling banners.. but your phone can do that, and so much more, without the 'squint' limitation...
A license to buy something that naturally occurs outdoors?
Is that any worse than making it illegal to own what is essentially a weed?
But that doesn't catch anyone's attention. Its all about marketing and ad revenue, ya know.
Really, even the content isn't relevant thesed ays as its all about how many hits you can get to your page
It may not be as grey as you think.
Example: Buying spores for psilocybin mushrooms could well be illegal, as it shows 'conspiracy to commit', which is illegal in its own right... The spores contain noting, but there is no other use for them but to create illegal substances so its really hard to make up an excuse.. This is no difference than your business proposal.
I also think in some US states ( and countries ) possession of the spores was declared illegal outright....
Great, i like making bread.. Will i now have to get a license to buy yeast ?
When you outlaw yeast.. only outlaws will eat sandwiches..
There is also a female joke in there too, but ill leave that one alone.
Not exactly. Yes you do have nutcase audiophiles that must use virgin gold connectors with natural rubber insulation made by Buddhist nuns under a full moon.
But there is a big difference between a good set of speakers and the $5 speakers you get with your new PC.
When I plug my headphones in on my workstation I get a hiss I can hear when no sound is playing and the sound is just not that good. It does not need to by since I am usually just listening to NPR shows.
Yep I want to stop for the night at 7 pm where are the hotels you can stay at and here are some places to eat...
Compilers are actually easy to come by today. Debugging is where you run into issues.
Mobile, Routers, NAS, and now servers. ARM is getting very big very quickly.
In computers Attacks come from the bottom up. PC where a joke and could not hold a candle to a real computer like a PDP-11! Forget about mainframes like the 370!
It was not HURD at the time but GNU Unix that was going to be the next big thing.
It wasn't but hey no one is perfect.
You wont be buying a sound-blaster....
In reality, both were correct, in their own way. You have to remember the hardware they were using in 1992. Its NOT what you have today. Not by a long shot.
X86 has gone away. Everyone is using X86-64 and Arm. I would be more Unix like systems are ARM than X86 or X86-64.. So is AMD64 X86-64 orX86/64? I can never remember.
Except he was right in 1992.
He just underestimated the growth in speed and power of a PC. On a 386 with 4 megs of memory and a single slow hard drive he was right.
Simple native development can be a lot easier than cross development.
If you have the money for some really good embedded tools, cross development is not bad at all. But if not native development is a lot simpler.
I would still do most of my work on an X86 Linux box and then move the project over to the embedded for testing but that is just me.
