go back to simcity version 1 or 2. homelessness wasn't a problem 22 years ago, right?
on top of that, being only a month or so old, it wasn't ready when the makers like Samsung needed to do their final packaging and testing for the Christmas season phones as all that had to happen in July through September to give the factories time to put the chip in and ship. How can I buy a 5.0 phone when the vast majority phones on the market now left the factory 3 months before 5.0 was released?
plus a 5g or 6g phone speaking 5.0 is going to be quite more expensive than the 2013 4g that as a simple matter of *hardware* is going to be fast enough for what most people throw at it, at least in the first few months. Why get a $250 (after contract) 5g phone with 5.0 on it when the 4g is only $99 and will run all the same apps just as well?
if it is that much better, samsung would already be pushing the updates to my more recent devices.
one problem was the timing of the release. they put it out just a month ago, but everybody bought their Christmas toys *2* months ago, and that meant they had to be in the factory *4* months ago. It wasn't out nearly in time to make the 2014 sales, so it has no chance of an upswing until this summer or next Christmas.
The only ones to reply so far are overly cynical, probably from having stayed up all night gaming or hacking code and likely are on their 6th cup of coffee.
seriously, have you ever tried to get a cert installed properly in J2EE? Node? PHP/Apache? Ever tried to get PGP working right on t-bird?
There is nothing about the process that is straightforward in any way (including the cert signing stuff). Thus, most websites will simply find it easier to not bother. Let those who can pay for experts pay for it, but until expertise becomes "push this button" easy, and still almost free, it isn't worth it for typical web traffic.
...is Dave Brubeck in all of this?
Dear Google, I asked for "Time Out", not whatever this crap is about.
The article just talks about web-reading, and how more and more webpages are being responsive (for mobile reasons) in ways that actually now optimize sites for vertical orientation over horizontal.
However, from a coding and word processing* perspective, vertical layout is a bit better, too, as it allows you to see more of the text and the text's context, than horizontal mode does. Thus, most developers who pay attention to such things do use both, as the first 5point comment suggests above.
In fact, that was the actual vision of the PARC crew that invented GUI and WYSIWYG back in the 70s: the Xerox Alto workstation they created did have a vertical monitor, for this very reason: the idea was that if you were using a word processor to show you a page's layout, seeing the whole page on screen was the desired effect. They discovered it improved coding productivity once they were using the workstation to produce the software.
(that said, it is NOT better for spreadsheets or powerpoint, or database-editing tools, so there we are.)
So glad I'm not the only one who thought that when I read the headline.
That may be a fact, but we didn't need to know any of that. And neither do the birds.
That's the whole point of the harmonic series: our ears, in their ability to hear, can hear the overtones in a note because they are there *physically* in the sound. It is unavoidable.
"Dissonant" notes, such as a tritone or a minor 2nd, aren't dissonant because of some sine wave detail: that's just a matter of mathematical transposition and simplification. The notes are dissonant because their collective overtones within them are clashing all the way up the harmonic series as well. We hear ALL of those harmonic clashes, even if we're not conscious of it. The sine wave isn't why they are dissonant: the harmonics are.
Indeed. The nature of the relationship between the 'first' and 'fifth', the first harmonic overtone, is inherent in the actual physics of sound itself. The order of 'discovery' of the other notes of the scale inherently result from developing an ear to notice the other harmonics - it only takes finding 8 harmonics to end up with a pentatonic scale, found in almost every historical culture in the world.
It does, however, take a matter of conscious choice to actually develop the whole circle of fifths, the idea of modulation, and then the necessity of tempering the instrument - all aspects strictly of western tonality (with the resulting western a-tonality that followed in the 20th century: our atonality is actually still a limitation of our instruments of choice and the temperament they inherited).
I don't expect the birds to actually get that far...and even if they did, we'd just be accusing them of impersonating Messiaen's works.

I was stuck with one on a DEC Alpha back in '94. Damn thing gave me carpal tunnel in a matter of days, and I refused to use the box until they replaced it with the contemporary version of the keyboards off a VT320.
It disappeared because Micro$oft was then well into their bundled-packages for OEMs, where they would offer huge discounts on Office (or even just Works) to OEMs to pre-install on Windows installations. If you already had Office, why go hunting for 123 anymore?
Yes, this is one of several things that the 90s era anti-trust lawsuits had intended to put a stop to, and was a much bigger issue in the European cases than the American DOJ case that was focused primarily on the browser market.
By the time the suits were resolved, however, the damage had already been done and Office (and IE) was the only player on the market. The browser situation recovered with Firefox and webkit. The Office suite market never did, and only now with people looking at cloud solutions like Google Drive is there starting to get some pick-up at Office alternatives.
Indeed. Kickstarter is not the initial funding to turn idea into prototype - that is always personal or corporative debt and always will be.
Kickstarter replaces the VCs as the means by which the prototype can become a marketable and distributable product.
Greatly simplifies a lot of the work the model layers have to do, and eventually means that many frameworks will over time get rid of their setter/getter mechanisms and all the weight they have.
