Billions of nanobots spread in the air, capable of audio/video streaming... now that would be "1984" on steroids. Think of NSA being able to look anywhere at any time, live.
It made some sense to compare civilian to government guns until like 1930. Governments have all those airplanes, hellicopters, NSAs, prisons, so best thing you can do with bare gun against government is to shoot yourself in the head.
In some bigger electronics shops, you can see 4K TVs, with some demo 4K recorded loop. I saw 65" and 55" Sony TVs. While smaller (55") is better, but not dramatically over FullHD, difference on 65" is really !!! BIG !!!. Check it yourself.
People also tried to make smartphones and tablets decades ago, but failed simply because hardware was not capable enough. Nowadays, HW is incredibly powerful, so we might try new things with it.
Or, that living things, including our brain, transform this (static) funcion to 3D space + time, where things are possible to _predict_, there is enough causality in direction of time arrow, and system is stable enough (conservation of energy works) for life to exist. Most other trasformations probably lead to functions where random things happen, with no causality, or system is unstable (stuff massively pops up everywhere and then evaporates), so it is impossible for (complex at least) life to exist.
Cell should be an object even today. Their problem is probably, that Cell object contains something like string object, so creating 1 million of cells meeds million pointers and allocations to million of strings, which is performance killer. What they need to do is: instead of string, put int handler of string into cell, and have all strings in single huge allocated blob (like: StringBlobMap object). Going away from objects to improve performance is rarely good idea.
What Obama propose, is like sending 5 soldiers to Omaha beach on D-Day. It just makes no sense at all.
I agree, except if it ends up using smaller bitrate and less computation for same quality video then HEVC, which is their goal. In that case, it would instantly change from boring to magic.
I see CSS as another attempt (previous one being VisualBasic) of non programmers, to sort of "program" something. CSS alongside 2 basic layers, regular code and HTML document itself, only creates additional unnecessary third layer of shit that eventually may introduce problems, as soon as someone starts playing with it
So, it is enough to filter people buying sunglasses, without car and facebook account?
1 TB/s? That bus is insane, it could transfer my whole porn collection in less then 5 minutes!
There cannot be any proof, it is obviously impossible to distinguish between "simulated" and "real" reality
Product received great reviews from buyers, so no.
Just like Android, this OS will bring $100 Chinese laptops, that would be great for Linux users, and also provide great OLPC solution as a side effect. Only feature I need in future ChromeOS editions, is integrated VirtualBox, so that I can launch Ubuntu from within ChromeOS.
