Interesting line of thought and kind of true: water gets more dense as you go deeper.
Pressure increases with depth, density not so much. Water's an incompressible fluid.
This wouldn't be any different from putting hidden cameras in your house when the babysitter is over. You're not in a public place, so you should have a reasonable expectation of privacy.
Nope, wrong. It's your house. You can put all the cameras you want inside of it. There are no restrictions..
So to take that argument to its conclusion, then it is OK to place a hidden camera in a bathroom where babysitter might be bathing, changing, or other state of partial undress?
That's the only thing people care about. Get it to work for more than 10hours
If only that were true then people would still be using Blackberries, which are famously stingy in their battery consumption and could go days between charges. If anything, the market has said overwhelmingly that battery life doesn't matter a whit, and customers continue to snap up whatever is the must-have phone of the day. Carriers are not necessarily motivated to push for better battery life, as they like the revenue bump that comes with upselling an extra desk charger and a car charger to get the phone through the day.
Battery life is one of those things. Everyone says they want Mary Anne, but they always pick Ginger.
...you focus on building awesome hardware. delivering an android phone with slightly different UI elements isn't going to differentiate you from your competitor.
Problem is that the hardware isn't really all that different. Look at phones and tablets - they're converging to pretty much the same look - thin mostly-black slabs, with rounded edges and big touch screen. Most platforms have the same sensors (accelerometers, GPS, etc.), similar screens, etc. That's not enough differentiation.
Why do people buy iPhones or Androids? It's all about the apps, the community, the experience, making a fashion statement. Pretty much everything other than hardware. The hardware's just something that's expected to be there to facilitate all the rest.
Sure it is a little extreme, but how fast would phone thefts drop if a handfull of peoples heads explode when they steal a phone?
Probably about the same as murder rate drops in death-penalty states. Which is to say, not much.
In my experience, one never stops creating bugs, they just get more subtle and harder to find. Nothing personal against you of course, but the statement above calls to mind the study that demonstrated how the less a person knew about a particular topic, the higher his level of confidence about his competence in that topic.
There is no real reason why Google can't do all of these things.
Well actually there is one: as a public company, they are expected to maximize profits. Even with the myriad of interesting projects and products, 99% of Google's revenue and profit comes from search-based advertisements. At the end of the day, that's where they'll circle the wagons. Everything else is, well, everything else.
