So with the right setup, all the Babylon5 CGI could be re-done by mechanimation?
(Google for "Babylon5 cgi lost" as to why redoing the Babylon5 CGI is in serious need)
Man, here I was hoping helm's deep would reinvigorate LOTRO. And yes, I had even pre-ordered it.
I see the Linux Fault Threshold is just as powerful today as it was in 2001.
They are not monkeys and not mentally handicapped, so they have no excuse regarding understanding that. And if they are, then they need some kind of legal guardian, because they clearly can't deal with the real world.
Yes...they're the ones who can't deal with the real world.
There's no way in hell this card will have dropped down to $150-200 in a year. I own a 560 Ti and that's still going for about $250, as a reference.
This is about Brazil, not Cuba. There isn't an inch of Marxism in our government system.
Yeah, cause its never happened to anyone else before...
Apps that duplicate apps already in the App Store may be rejected, particularly if there are many of them, such as fart, burp, flashlight, and Kama Sutra apps.
If you were to write and submit your own app that connected to Dropbox, it might get rejected. Given the number of third-party Facebook apps and Twitter clients still available on the App Store, however, I think that unlikely.
I feel pretty good about Dropbox never being pulled for "duplicating functionality."
Then it was never any competition to DropBox or Box.net at all, really.
Yes. In very much the same way that the iPad was never trying to compete directly against the featureset of netbooks.
And bets on how long it is before Apple de-lists the DropBox iPhone app because it duplicates functionality?
It's pretty hard to collect on a bet for "never."
Whereas Apple is relying on their lock-in to the "we get a cut of the action, see" iTunes store. It is a tried and true method.
Except iOS devices aren't loss leaders for Apple. Apple makes a negligible amount of profit off of its App Store. The bulk of Apple's profit comes from every device that goes out the door—whether it's paid for by you or by a combination of you and your mobile carrier.
[...] it doesn't seem reasonable to me to expect other companies to delay their work out of respect while Apple keeps on doing their work out of respect.
Who expected other companies to delay their work? Apple clearly didn't.
The only glaringly obvious omission seems to be sticking with 3G instead of adding LTE or HSPA+ support.
Current LTE chipsets are too bulky and use too much power. It also has HSPA+.
Spot on analogy, Tackhead. +1, you.
Hahaha. I had forgotten about the LBs. Hope you are doing well soon.
