One deer acclimate they won't care any more. Similarly, I'm sure back in the past the loud noises would scare deer away, the way automobiles drove horses into a frenzy a century ago.
To paraphrase the Marx Brothers: who am I going to believe? You, or my own ears?
I listen to MP3s plenty, or even Pandora, so I don't want to come off like a snob. But even with a shitty turntable and shitty speakers, it's very obvious that LPs sound better than CDs/MP3s. I get surprised comments on it all the time.
Also, the hook of this player isn't higher bitrates (any player can do FLAC or at least 320 kbps MP3) but the higher quality electronics, output levels, S/N ratios, etc.
No, this is not true. Polynesian isn't a language, it's a family of languages. The languages aren't entirely mutually intelligible. It's like Romance languages, which come from a similar base and have many words in common, but aren't the same language and may not be mutually intelligible.
Well then hopefully they are able to use the computer without a monitor. Because a Pi with monitor is going to draw more power than a netbook, and FAR more power than a $50 Android cell phone.
What makes you think Pi is popular with the kids? It seems to be a nerd-only thing that's popular mostly as a cheap XBMC box.
Low power? Is this really an issue for children, like their parents only let them draw two amps at a time for their main computing device?
And by the time you include a monitor, case, keyboard, etc, a netbook with monitor is going to be cheaper and draw less power and let them use the most popular and supported business/educational/entertainment software.
You can easily buy a pre-paid Android phone for $40-$50 today. It's believable to me that with the steady progress of technology, $20 Android smart phones will be available in a year or two anyway.
Yes and no...Shenzhen itself may be not a place you'd visit, but it's right next to Hong Kong and Macau, both of which are (to me) top tourist cities. One could easily make Shenzhen a day trip from either city. There's even a commuter train between Hong Kong & Shenzhen.
Actually Microsoft developed OSes for mobile devices very early, with Windows CE coming out in 1996. I remember is 2003 or so, owning Dell PDA that aside from not having a phone and having a clunkier interface, let me browse the web and do much of what a cell phone does (personally I used it to browse the web, watch movies, listen to music, and Skype), in a cell phone like package. It was a niche product for years, and obviously Microsoft didn't quite develop it the right way. But saying that Microsoft never seriously approached the mobile devices market because they only want a product they dominate is simply not true.
Microsoft also pushed tablet computing hard for a long time, even though it never caught on. Again, they didn't do it right, but it wasn't for a lack of sustained trying.
Wow, they make her look serious! But get this, she's a woman! Like, not a man!!!! How would it even be possible for her to have smarts or savvy?
I mean, sure she has a double major from Stanford and went to graduate school at MIT, and then worked her way up in a male-dominated technology company...but if you look at pictures of her, it's clear from these pictures that she is a woman!
I think this just shows how major corporations are faulty, when instead of choosing basement dwellers, the board of directors of a major corporations actually chose a successful, well-educated woman to lead instead, when the "promotional photos" of her clearly shows that she is a woman.
How many roads must a man walk down?
So what? There's a lot of drek out there, fortunately it's easy to ignore what you don't care about. Like if I were to go to a bookstore, 90% of the books would hold no interest to me, and I will likely ever read
Also, cars should be banned, it's a waste of gas!
Also, Amazon should be banned, everything gets shipped in plastic and cardboard!
Also, TV dinners should be banned- you just end up throwing away the tray!
Also, milk should be banned, every year people throw away millions of cartons!
In the scale of things, it's a pretty miniscule amount of plastic.
Right, because this patent will give Keurig a monopoly. In a year or two the only way to get a cup of coffee will be buy a Keurig machine.
