digital audio systems that minimize background noise.
Yeah. What if you want catadioptric bokeh?
IIRC, Gravity had 3d lens flare.
Consider this picture of a spider dining on its prey--possibly a cricket.
What's important? the spider, the web, the meal.
What's not important? the storm drain, the foliage
It's not completely successful, but both the foliage and the storm drain are out of focus, while the spider, the meal, and the web are in focus. The aperture control on a large sensor camera lets the photographer select where the blurriness ends, and where it begins. Generally, the longer the focal length of the lens, the more dramatic the effects of opening up the aperture. Since camera phones use short focal length lenses, the blurring effect is quite subtle, and is often insufficient to draw in the viewers eye.
In this particular case, it's a macro shot, so even a very narrow aperture (f/16) involves some blurriness. Quite often, macro-photographers use very narrow apertures-- f/16-f32, in an attempt to resolve all of the interesting aspects of their subjects.
But the way forward is clear. Make internet surveillance legal, and a free and open society will blossom, untroubled by questions of legality
Perhaps, but there is far more reason to think that Putin is lying, because he's been telling bald-faced lies to the entire world as recently as the past couple of weeks (concerning Ukraine). At least in the US, our politicians tell their lies in a gray area such that fact-checkers give numeric ratings to indicate just how untruthful a statement is. Putin just tells outright lies as if he believed them to be completely true and reasonable himself.
Or, phrased another way: In Soviet Russia, Putin fact-checks you!
The Executive chair, which should be the most luxurious, is almost always the most uncomfortable but it's always covered in slippery leather.
Clearly, the Executive chair is just for show, since he'll be out at the golf course all day anyway.
He discovered the first Kuiper belt object.
You can think of him as an American Piazzi, if you'd like.
As far as I'm concerned, "mobile" is just an excuse to make money off market segmentation. Want to watch hulu on your PC? No problem.
Want to watch it on your tablet PC? Sorry, you'll need a hulu plus subscription.
Want to watch a video on your PC? Enjoy.
Want to watch it on a handheld PC? "This content is not licensed for your device."
A mobile device is simply a computer without cords. It's high time the market defragmented and realized this.
Incorporate yourself. Obtain corporate credit card. Problem solved.
Of course it does. Afterall, you don't bu Adobe's Creative Cloud--you subscribe. Same goes for Microsoft's Office 365.
So subscriptions and in-app purchases are right iin.
This is about technological implementation, and it's part of NSA's purview as a spy agency to explore technologies that further their ability to do their job. Part of that is discovering weaknesses in cryptographic systems which are trusted by the people you want to spy on.
The NSA also plays a counterintelligence role, and they're falling short of that if they don't take action to notify developers of a widely used Internet infrastructure utility that their software contains a critical exploit. If they can exploit it, so can the spy agencies of any other government with the skills to do so.
Some years back, the fuel efficiency tests were changed.
Hypothetically, if you screwed a camera lens onto an iphone, the lens cylinder would project beyond the rectangular prism that is the iphone. And if you dropped that iphone, and it landed on the lens, it would probably stress that lens mount quite a bit.
The only way to get HD versions of the episodes would be to re-render every single CGI and comp shot, and Warners will never, ever pay to have that done.
I just want to say one word to you, just one word.
I mean Kickstarter.
