The buttons have been move crucial millimetres. They now SUCK.
the Nyquist limit of the audio sampling hardware of a cell phone over instruction rate of a modern CPU is a pretty small fraction.
The "audio" in question is most likely all below 24 kHz, that being the Nyquist limit for the 48 kHz sampling hardware, unless it happens that some phones can actually sample faster, and have microphones that can respond to higher frequencies.
The instruction rate of the CPUs in question is many times that frequency.
It doesn't sound likely.
Using multiple cores turns out to help the attack (by shifting down the signal frequencies).
Say what? Through what mechanism would multiple cores shift down the frequency? And what about parallel instruction streams contributing to noise?
TEMPEST was a details-secret government requirement meant to defeat means of eavesdropping on classified computer data from its electromagnetic emissions. I guess they need to include audio too.
My impression is that the noise comes from the power supply, not the CPU. I can certainly hear it with some computers, and it is related to work on the video card in my experience. I'm astonished that you can actually pull data from that, and in fact I'd like to see independent confirmation before I believe it.
Warrantless Wiretapping was about getting blackmail materials on every sitting member of the House and the Senate, as well as their staff and acquaintances.
Your government fell to a silent coup a handful of years ago, and we're now seeing the direction to which the "winners" want to take your country and our world.
"American Senators tell us that Brazil should not worry, because this is not "surveillance," it's "data collection." They say it is done to keep you safe. They're wrong. There is a huge difference between legal programs, legitimate spying, legitimate law enforcement -- where individuals are targeted based on a reasonable, individualized suspicion -- and these programs of dragnet mass surveillance that put entire populations under an all-seeing eye and save copies forever. These program
I could imagine a disturbing time when all popular music is electronic and kids grow up without learning that they can actually create music in the moment (wait.. are we there already?), but then one day someone "discovers" this weird feeling they get when they start tapping on a log or a desk or a glass or something, and then they have the "innovative" idea of doing that with other people. They'll never want to stop.
If you notice, in the original article that was linked, the primary complaint is NOBODY is DANCING.
I don't care if you have only 1sq foot of space per person. That wouldn't be a problem if you had Kool and the Gang bumping your house down. The bans is tapped INTO THE EARTH'S RHYTHM. The people are tapped into THAT SAME rhythm. Every one is getting DOWN.
By the way, have you ever heard me rant AGAINST GODDAMN EARBUDS!!!????
Music is intended to create a space of shared experience, not isolate people into private sonic boundaries.
Buy a BOOM BOX. Turn it UP!
Cook and Ives.
They will be found in the 9th circle of hell, with heads up each other's arses - where like in Dante's inferno they will be whipped for all eternity by the disembodied heads of Brin and Page, attached to a single robot body.
Try hitting "forward" or "reverse" to the next/previous track, without looking. With out accidentally changing volume, or switching "shuffle".
Try doing WHILE looking! Still the deuce to do!
This was perfectly positioned, and responded to the right touch, prior to 7 - even with the 6.x face lift.
TOTAL DISASTER. I now use a 3rd party player, after 3 months of bitch-fight with Ives' abortion.
It's awful. Things that function as multi-state buttons now look like hyperlinks. Low-contrast shading "highlights" state changes. Other buttons, formerly intuitive and multi-state, now summon fly-up menus from the bottom of the screen (like the loop one/all button in Music app).
"WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO RUIN MY COMPANY?"
-- Steve Jobs, c. 2003
iOS7 would have gotten Jony FIRED if Jobs were still alive. Give the man a gong, and "Sir" Ives fucks everything to hell.
The man was a great PHYSICAL designer of cases and objects. Not allowed near software UXD in Steve's lifetime. Now you know why.
Nothing works well, any longer - shadows and reflections or not. The laundry list of how screwed the music app deserved a post of its own.
Red chevrons? REALLY? Lotus Notes, Borland SideKick and ccMail.
