You are misunderstanding the author's point, which is (roughly): "If there were a rock out in space with the same albedo as Earth (with atmosphere), it would be colder than Earth." That is all they are saying.

You are correct in that if they were interested in the temperature of Earth without atmosphere, then the provided albedo would be wrong. However, that's not what they're interested in. They are only trying to show that a purely albedo/black-body model is insufficient.

Epic Sticking With Classic Controllers For Now 64 64

Cliff Bleszinski, design director for Epic Games, said in an interview with Develop that while motion control schemes like Project Natal look interesting, Epic will probably be sticking with classic controllers "for the foreseeable future." He said, "Microsoft came down a few weeks before E3 and gave us a demo, and they're now shipping out the dev kits; I think it's great. When you start combining the motion-capture, the facial recognition, and the vocal recognition you can create some unique experiences. And of course more accessibility is always a good thing. When you build an interface like that though you need to [specifically] design a game for it. It can't just be tacked on."

Any programming language is at its best before it is implemented and used.
