No, not really. Steak Tartar -for example- originated in Europe. France to be more specific. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steak_tartare Check out the History and Regional variations sections. Not too mention the Swedish 'Rabiff' version which usually resembles the Danish version pretty closely.
Saying it, doesn't make it true. The numbers were well over a million z10 sold in North America alone. The q10 is expected to do even better.
The premise of this is absurd. You can't stop people from viewing the material so blame the the providers of the connection... right... That's like blaming your ears for hearing nails on a chalkboard instead of remedying the sound in the first place. So basically if search engines sucked and material was hard to find there would be no issue? Libraries sort their books so that material (both copyrighted and not) is easy to find, I suppose they should be forced to pay too? High speed Internet offers high speed to everything online, not just the illegal content.
PensacolaSlick writes "According to NOAA's global historical climatology network data, the only colder start to spring in the USA in recorded history came in 1975. The particular data set used to support this claim comes from a NASA interpretation of the numbers, and there is some discussion as to the validity of their adjustments. But Russian scientists at the Pulkovo Observatory in St. Petersburg have developed a claim of their own, based on solar observation: we are embarking on an extended period of low solar activity, and we "could be in for a cooling period that lasts 200-250 years. What's remarkable about the temperature graph above, from NASA's own public data, is both the lack of any noticeable trend in the last 100 years and the amazing temperature leap in the last two years."
sciencehabit writes "Nanotechnologists with a creative streak have turned proteins into origami, folding the biomolecules into relatively complex 3D objects such as a triangular pyramid or tetrahedron. The advance could offer researchers a new way to craft useful nanoscale objects for a variety of functions, such as delivering drugs and making novel catalysts capable of carrying out specific chemical reactions in sequence, much the way organisms do to create the myriad compounds that they rely on."

I love my Z10, if I wasn't already on the BlackBerry band wagon, I am now. It's worth noting that issues like this are usually found after they have been exploited to do severe damage, while as far as I've seen this is a pre-emptive warning by BlackBerry that they found an issue and fixed it. Instead of hiding it away and hoping no one notices.
and when Windows has gotten it wrong by so much that the progress bar is 5 times the width of my monitor, what then? There might as well not be a progress bar if it is possible you won't see the end and it has been stated many times that going backwards is an even less desirable option. Perhaps (as most applications already do this) displaying a progress bar as progress of actions AND a timer to expected completion is ideal as it informs the user of both the action completion state and the time frame associated with the remaining actions. Of course the same question could be asked 'Why is it so hard to make an accurate timer?'.
I think you are confusing time measurement with progress measurement. The progress is still 25% complete whether it will take 5 minutes or 5 days to complete the other 75%. For example: when sending an e-mail, there are approx 4 steps. Write content, attach files, address e-mail recipient and send. While these steps will taking varying amounts of time (0 being a possible amount of time) for every e-mail, they still constitute 25% of your 'progress' in sending said e-mail.
You're taking the context of printing even further. I was attempting to point out the reasonably intended scope outlined by the poll. which was meant to include physical printing. By your broadening of the word printing beyond reasonable interpretation, internal/external hard drives, forms of flash memory, monitors, scanners, etc. (why include a computer at all you can print without one using a pen and paper or even etch-a-sketch) would all appear as poll options to be selected; but none of these hold any bearing on the statistic attempted to be measured here. The last 2 options about mixed or not performing printing encompass the good faith meaning behind something like "exporting" to PDF where no contrast (ink, toner or what-have-you) is applied to paper or paper-like substance.
Printing usually implies a physical result outside of the computer. 'printing to PDF' would be more of a transformation of content. I would even stretch to say it could be considered a form of publishing to the new format. The only reason it "works" like printing is to take advantage of the uniformity of print driver inputs, thus allowing any format to translate to PDF. Despite being installed as a print driver, it does not print. As for 3D printing, it is probably unlikely that home use would produce more 3D models on the whole than sheets of paper (taking a model to be one printed thing and say a report to be a traditional printed thing - they may both have sections, but still a single entity). Especially taking into account how short a time home 3D printing has been available.
This was mentioned at the alpha launch(es), I guess it was an oversight on 'real' launch day. Being able to write 1 app that with little to no code change runs on a BB tablet or phone will be huge for bringing the BB app store back into the light. Not to mention to android OS support making porting a piece of cake.
The camera on a smartphone has evolved to having near quality of a professional camera. That said it is NOT a professional camera. When I take a picture with my phone I want it to capture the moment decently and for the size of a dime they go far beyond what anyone realistically needs. If I wanted amazing quality photos I would use a camera with proper optical zoom, etc. Basing a smart phone on 1 feature of which should not be primary is hardly advisable. That would be like not buying the perfect car because the horn sound isn't a perfect pitch. Sure you use it and some days more than others, but it is not core functionality and should be weighted as such.
Woops, typing to quickly. Thanks for the correction.
Repeating the same thing in different terms does not amount to a meaningful opinion. Generally a reason or fact follows such statements as a sign of supporting evidence.
There's no denying RIM's made some mistakes and targeted the wrong audience with there recent devices, but from everything I've seen the BB10 is a real turnaround to what they do right and what people want. Business oriented, with speed and just a touch of flashiness to go with it. If people can get it out of their head that RIM is dead (which they're not: no debt and rising stock prices, over hiring resulting in mass layoffs, etc., but that's a discussion for another time) they might just find the new BB10 isn't half bad.
