Proximity and changing pH, I'd imagine.
I'm really - I mean really, uncomfortable with the thought of Microsoft planning this kind of thing 12 years in advance...
Also, you don't have projectiles flying off past the target if you miss or pass-through. If there's a friendly base, city etc beyond the drone, you most probably don't want to light it up with bullets or missiles.
... and the pitcher is $RANDOM_MALL_SANTA.
Or just have them bind to localhost, if you have software locally that requires them (for some reason). Done that way... if you can get to them, you already own the machine.
It's not really the camera - just like the US landing - the live picture looked like crap, but the images captured directly and brought back on film were fantastic.
It's the transmission bandwidth - that you have to share with telemetry. Also recall that you don't have a 4ghz CPU core up there to nicely digitize it with an efficient codec - it's hard to cool things up there.
So you're trying to tell us that a military from 1910 would have automatic rifles, functional tanks, current-generation aircraft, advanced radar (and stealth), nuclear warheads, and launch vehicles that can put payloads on the moon safely?
Indeed. You can have my public key. What are you going to do with it, grant me access to things? THE HORROR!
Even with root, the phone will prompt you every time an app wants super user access.
Nope. That is entirely up to the 'su' binary on your device. On mine, rooting simply meant I was able to alter things. It wasn't until I replaced the 'su' binary that I was able to effectively run things superuser, and the replacement binary (chainfire's supersu, incidentally) does the prompting.
This, most likely... though it can't seem to back up Play applications that you've paid for (AFAIK there's encryption involved)
ADB (debugger, part of the SDK) also has backup/restore functionality - though I've never used it personally so I don't know if it's actually usable without already being rooted.
It's not Google's responsibility. If the app wasn't written by a chinese fly-by-night, it would handle the null data return and properly admonish the user, etc.
Yes. But they seem hell-bent on not doing it.
Indeed. There is zero reason this needs to be legislated.
This is just congress fucking off instead of doing what they are supposed to be doing, again.
Ah, it was one of those "ecard" line drawings of a child on a stool with a dunce cap. It was captioned "There are stupid questions."
Indeed. So it's not generally available. Hence what you got here was a preview.
