It's very labour intensive. Having the right strains for the area, picking it at the right time, fermenting it for just long enough and drying it properly all have an effect on taste. And that's all before it leaves the farm
Hi, another kiwi here. If you want to taste chocolate as good as it can get then grab a few bars from Wellington Chocolate Factory http://www.wcf.co.nz/ They do bars made from single farms or villages, treated well, so you can really taste the differences in the beans used.
That's why I say grab a few bars, tasting them against each other is startling how different and complex the flavours can be.
If you're in Wellington, call in and see them, they're friendly and will feed you amazing things. - I'm not affiliated with them, just a very happy customer.
That is until the thermal protection kicks in and the game starts to crawl.
The Ouya found this, they had room to add a small heatsink to the otherwise standard mobile SOC, and were able to get a lot more performance out of it because it wasn't hitting the thermal limits.
Nope those blinky lights are off limits sorry. But the Workshop does tours. http://www.wetanz.com/window-into-workshop/
I write some code but my credits are all in IMDB you insensitive clod. ( nm1487742 )
They already make a ton of money off RSS advertising. For most of my feeds, the banners are google adwords or google delivered banner adds.
They make money off Reader just by being the ad network that everyone uses.
As long as you've got enough parallax to work out the depth information from your scene, you can push the effect to recreate viewpoints that are wider then you have real data for.
You will end up with tiny slivers of image that you don't have pixel data for when there's a foreground element that diverges more then it did before, but that's easy to recreate. All post converted 3d films have this problem to an even greater extent, there's algorithms out there to clone the surrounding pixels or even use pixels from other frames if the object is moving through the scene
There are lightfield cameras out there that instead of using a single chip, they use an array of small cameras (think cell phone cameras) The adobe one is 500 Megapixels
See the research by Todor Georgiev http://tgeorgiev.net/ The Lytro camera is a nice cheap toy, but there's some stunning results form researchers.

The difference in approach is that Airbus bet the farm on big planes travelling between hubs, then small (A320 sized) planes taking people to their final destination.
Boeing has bet the farm on smaller long range planes taking people exactly where they want to go.
It's going to be interesting if one of them has hit the winning formula, or if there's enough competition and different habits to support both approaches.
In film land and the visual effects industry where the 2k was standard long before HDTV was invented, it' was always a measure of the horizontal pixel dimension.
It makes sense because you would start with a 2048x1536 scan from the 35mm Frame (4/3 aspect ratio) and cut off the top and bottom to reach 2048x853 2.35:1 aspect ratio seen in the cinema. These days you also work with a mask at 2048x1152 that matches the 16:9 or 1.77 aspect ratio used in HD tv.
The delivery back to the editor is often the full 4/3 frame which gives them room to rack the picture up or down per shot. This lets them frame the theatrical release and the Bluray release slightly differently, mostly in scenes where peoples heads are near the top of frame and you want control over how close they are to the edge of frame.
Then you want a phone with CyanogenMod It's got pretty fine grained control for denying apps certain permissions. Take a look:
The Roundup resistant gene was found in nature, and Monsanto just copied it into soya beans. There are also plenty of weeds that have naturally generated a resistance to Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup.
And in the southern Hemisphere, We've had one of the coldest and wettest summers on record in New Zealand.
But you only hear about climate change when people are hot.....
Chinese Brand 'Snow Beer' is the highest selling beer now.
no I'd never heard of it either. I'd still rather have something crafted by a guy with a beard.
Oh that's easy, I've billed a 40 hour day before.
First 10 hours was at my desk in New Zealand, then I was put on an overnight flight to LA and billed 17 hours traveling time. Because I traveled back over the date line, I arrived before I had left. Then when I landed I spent 13 hours fixing the machine that broke on the way. Tada, 40 hours worked on Friday.
I've got a friend who lived in Yugoslavia when NATO attacked. NATO had these anti radar missiles, tens of thousands of dollars a pop. The Yugoslavs took old microwave ovens out into the field, rigged them to work without a door and pointed them at the sky. they would flick them on when NATO planes were reported. The plane would empty it's load of anti radar missiles and immediately turn home.
