I wouldn't be surprised if it worked on systems that didn't meet the spec...but I also wouldn't be surprised if they didn't guarantee *any* sort of pleasant experience on those systems including motion sickness, like they already have a problem with. All of the requirements are there to reduce latency, especially the synchronous display.
News for nerds. How in the world is this *NOT* news for nerds.
Personally, I have a full sized replica of a light saber. It's doesn't retract, but it's worth the looks I get from the ladies when I put it in my pocket.
In other news, goodbye slashdot!
Nope. Both call names, but Republicans seem to *constantly* use cute little names like that as often as possible.
> on a stinkpad
Straight to name calling. Wow. Let me guess, you're Republican?
> On the plus side, I can see how it would be appealing to people without a lot of money who can't afford internet any other way.
There, fixed that for you.
I get the problem, but I'm sure the people who can't afford any sort of connection are a bit disappointed right now.
Oh, and google maps *is the best* with crappy internet. It'll just silently continue on, using some inertia based guidance that you can see plowing through stoplights, with no indication whatsoever, including it *not giving directions* or extremely delayed directions. No warning or tone or something, just silence. Maybe they fixed this in the last 6 months or so...I was tired of u-turns so switched to Waze.
The play store is unusable with an erratic connection. Goes to blank screens if you're trying to open a link to an app from an external source, jumps back to unrelated screens if a problem happens when you're trying to access an apps page, has non-fucking-modal popups that you have to access in your notifications before you can continue using the app if there's a problem during download...ffs.
The *only* app that i've seen handle crappy connections is iheart radio. It'll actually sit there and retry as the buffer depletes, and seamlessly continue. Most others seem to range from strange behavior to crash.
From the trend I'm seeing with prototypes that pass through work, it looks like white is the next fad.
Seems to be whatever the most expensive light is at the time.
> they'd realize that the blood of a horse is indistinguishable from the blood of its clone
I can't imagine gene expression would be *exactly* the same between the two, unless they lived relatively identical lives.
Not when you fold your bills into little paper airplanes, and deliver via well aimed transfers from the tops of sky scrapers. BRING IT!
You can only assume that each watch gets plugged into an NSA data transfer/backdoor update terminal each service. Although, it's silly to think that they need physical access if they want your data.
> and nearly all that *weren't* were old 90's Porsches
Uhh, Tesla *is* hurting Porsche sales.
You think people buy Porsches for the 0-60 or handling!? Maybe 1 in 20 (at least, that's the number of Porsches I've seen not putting along at 5mph under the speed limit, riding the brakes around every corner, and nearly all were old 90's Porsches).
I'm guessing it's more about the concept of a smart watch than a specific brand of smart watch.
I can't imagine the differences in any Swatch watches from the past 15 years is anything but external. I imagine they're mostly a watch face theme company, if not, then engineering was failing. But, external design isn't going to go completely away, unless they make ugly rectangles with ugly bands like all of the current smart watches (besides the Motorola 360). These first gen smart watches *can't* be as good as it gets. Put micro batteries in the bands and blow everyone away in terms of thickness. Add functionality to the bands (would love control on the band (swipe or whatever) in addition screen since my finger isn't transparent). I'd prefer a much smaller screen than what's available.
