Why else do you think they rushed it out with software and hardware that, according to reviews, still needs some work? Just to get those few days of publicity before Apple pulls out the big guns.
Not always. I recently bought an Ikea coffee table, and was surprised to find that my laser mouse does not work accurately on it. It does work, to a degree, but the cursor skips around the screen a lot, so it's clearly not properly tracking the surface. I put down a mouse pad and all is well again, so it's definitely an issue with the Ikea table and not something else like Bluetooth range, battery charge, etc. The coffee table in question is the Lack, and the mouse is the Apple Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, if anyone wants to try to re-create this.
This is true. And even if they did know it was electric, they may not know what an electric car sounds like. Until my wife bought a Prius, I had no idea myself; I had never been near enough to a running electric vehicle to hear their sounds.
Every professional editor in the world would add engine noise to a shot of an operating automobile. It's one of those things that you do without even thinking about, because generally you will receive footage (especially if it's b-roll) that has poor audio quality. The editor probably dropped it in like he/she would always do, without stopping to think "hey, that's an electric car, so that silence i'm hearing in the footage SHOULD be there." I would most certainly consider that an editing error.
"Sim Shitty" was the obvious joke here. You really blew that one.
Actually, 3840x2160 is used in "4K" TVs because it's exactly four times the resolution of 1080p (double in each direction), which makes scaling up existing content much easier. According to Wikipedia, 4K also covers a lot of different resolutions that are near 4000, from 3840 all the way up to 4096. Just like how a lot of TVs are advertised as "32-inch class" because they're 31.5 inches. Close enough to make general comparisons.
One of the primary reasons that Amazon prices are so low is because they don't have any retail buildings to staff and maintain. If they start buying up stores and stocking them with staff, equipment, and merchandise, they will lose that edge.
No wonder everybody hates New Jersey.
I was going to respond and say the exact same thing. Comcast keeps claiming that they have a 250 GB/month cap, but I am going well over this every single month (sometimes double) and I have never once gotten an extra charge or even a notice that I have broken the cap.
Super Nintendo, of course.
I went with a Mac. The Mac Mini is perfect for this sort of setup, and runs all the software I need it to (XBMC, Plex, etc) and plays all the formats I want (I use VLC), AND streams everything I want (Hulu, Netflix). Never crashes, has a built in IR reciever that I use with a Harmony remote, and uses very little electricity.
Live broadcasts. For me, it's sports. There are a lot of sporting events that I want to watch that are only on cable/satellite. Even if there was someone torrenting sporting events (I've looked high and low, unless it's the super bowl, this doesn't exist), I would still rather watch most of them live.
Most people pee before the film starts, and do not need to again until it is over. Two to three hours is not long to wait. The few idiots who don't think of that or drink so much pop that they can't hold it anymore are the only ones who would need an intermission.
I will blow up what I want, when I want. It's not my fault your dog is a pussy.
I hear you can get maps printed on this material called paper, and they bind many of them together into a booklet. Sounds scary, but people tell me it's usable.
