I can't fit 500+ printed books in my pocket. For me, that's the big deal right there. I have limited physical storage space in my house, and I read about 2 books a week.
But the GOP is against funding solar power because they don't believe in global warming.
Well, that what they say, but it's really because the oil and coal companies have them in their pocket.
I'm not "trying to impress anyone out there", I'm just trying not to die of boredom on my daily commute. A full-throttle acceleration from a stop light (when the way is clear and it's safe to do so) every now and then can really put a smile on my face.
I hear people say things about people with sports cars - "he's got small penis" or "he's showing off", but I'm just having fun. I'm having fun *for myself*. I've got no one to show off for - I'm married 17 years now.
This app is not for me.
"The app chirps at you when it notices rough braking, aggressive acceleration, or speeding over 70 mph."
I do that all the time. I like to do that. That's why I bought a sports car. Why would I want an app to chirp at me when I do that?
from the article:
"Meanwhile, the rise of the cloud has reduced the need for extra memory."
Really? "The Cloud" acts as RAM?
I am working now, and it's not a media company.
That may be true. I'm a developer, so I can't comment intelligently about the financial side of things. It may be that Veoh would have went under anyway, but we would have lasted a lot longer without those attorney's fees, and without the chilling effect the lawsuit had on us. I was told that some companies did not want to advertise with us because of the lawsuit.
In the all hands meeting when Michael Robertson told us all about his idea for my.mp3.com, one guy, a developer, (we'll call him "D") raised his hand and said "So, how are not a warez site, then?", and Michael had some explanation, and D asked the question again, and was insistent about it, and eventually was told to shut up and sit down (in nicer language). He was right, though, as history has proven.
I worked for mp3.com from 1999 to them folding in 2003 from UMG's (and others) lawsuit. I worked for Veoh from 2008 to 2009 when they folded from UMG's lawsuit.
I HATE UMG.
Those were the most fun jobs I've ever had. The work was challenging, the environment was fun, and my co-worker were some of the smartest people I've ever met. I had the opportunity to write code that solved problems no one had every faced before. It was awesome.
UMG has screwed me out of 2 very fulfilling jobs.
When people stop driving too slow in the far left lane, I'll stop tailgating.
You can edit old Word docs & Powerpoint presentations on an Android tablet?
Pay in Cash, don't use store discount cards. Don't let "them" tie the purchase to you. Problem solved.
Or, take the discount, pay with your convenient credit card, and don't give a crap what they think they know about you.
Sorry, just re-read my post and realized I was mis-remembering. I had also posted to facebook on a similar subject. Anyway, massive frame rate inconsistency, along with shitty audio support.
I go to bed now.
I thought was clear. Massive frame rate inconsistency. I can't even benchmark my code, because one play I'll get 40, then I shift-reload and get 60. No rhyme or reason.
