Of course, those pictures were NOT there when this was originally posted 3 days ago.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Actually, the probably are -- as I posted below, the iPhone 5 picture is looking much more towards the sun (given the amount of tree in the pictures) than the others by at least a few degrees, so yes, the person is holding it wrong. No digital camera can make up for looking directly into the sun. Poor photographer = poor picture.
Of course, these are all similar and yet very different pictures. The iPhone 5 picture is pointed much more directly towards the sun given the amount of the tree that is in the picture. The cloud cover also looks different meaning that the pictures were not even taken at the same time. This argument may be more believable if the pictures were same angle, same time of day, same everything. I'm guessing just about any digital camera will have a large amount of flare when looking directly into the sun.
I was just going to make this point. I find it ironic that he claims that conservatives believe in facts and proof, then goes on throwing in this line of BS about minimum wages increasing unemployment. He contradicts himself right in his own article.
Not only that, but when they released a touchscreen device, it was terrible. I'm a software developer and I couldn't figure out how to use the Storm. I hit a button and a the camera appeared in the middle of the (awful) web browser. It was atrocious. I picked up an iPhone and had everything working in like 5 minutes.
Right. It made sense to buy the Touchpad at fire-sale prices because it was good hardware, had a good web browser, good email and some decent apps. On the other hand, the Playbook doesn't even have a built-in email application that doesn't require tethering to a Blackberry, meaning its pretty much useless as a couch device, and the apps just plain suck.
Not only that, but how much extra will it cost parents who need to pay for care for younger children who would otherwise be in school. We know some parents like to treat schools as babysitters, but in any case, now they will really need one. Guess they maybe shouldn't have complained about a slight tax increase to pay for their kids education.
According to Google, UK£ 4 = $6.42800 which is still at least double what an HDMI cable goes for on Monoprice (depending on length that they are selling)
Part of the reason that I'm pissed off by this version a week crap is that plugins that should work no longer do, simply because they expect a version number. Google Toolbar doesn't work because of that. That's a serious WTF moment.
Seriously - I just upgraded one VM I have and see that Google Toolbar (very common) is broken as is the "Garmin Communicator" plugin which allows for Garmin fitness devices to upload to tracking sites. Odds are, its just a string test, but still dumb.
Its not even just new HPUX systems. Its also new VMS servers (also from HP).
Well, believe it or not, its also still being used for new VMS servers (yes, another technology that is still alive and kicking).
Okay, but why not just subscribe directly from the publisher then -- it says right in the summary -- the publisher gets 100% if they bring in the subscription. Not that I think that Apple's model is great, but they only get money if they bring in the revenue.
Which is, of course, part of the reason BluRay is superior to Netflix (or just about any other) streaming
Exactly. Look at how many passwords were gizmodo or engadget. Its a useless account -- does anyone really care if someone is now able to post comments or get replies to a site like this. It shows that users have individual passwords for the sites, and probably good odds that they are using "real" passwords for sites that matter.
