Comment: what is this, a samsung advert? (Score 3, Insightful) 201

obviously, under ideal conditions for the samsung (brightly lit, mounted to a tripod, canon lens stopped down, canon footage graded in post to match the overly sharp look & oversaturated colors of the galaxy), they will produce similar videos. but that's the one exception, not the rule.

they already got the software - i'd shell out 300 for the wiiU in a heartbeat if i'd get a huge library of vintage games for free. and then get talking to third party devolopers about downloadable software - wiiU and 3ds don't need multimillion $ AAA titles where they can't compete in terms of hardware with ps4/xboxo/pc anyway. but they good enough to compete with smartphines & tablets, they even got the physical controller as an advantage (sure you can buy a clunky controller for your ipod - but it's probably not widely supported, and drives the cost far beyond a dedicated gaming device like the 3ds - as lomg as you don't take cheaper software from e app store i to account)

I hated that point as well. especially as you more or less know from the beginning that clooney has to die and then this obviously necessary plot point is executed with blatant violation of the same physics that are plot devices for the rest of the movie. why couldn't clooney&bullock at least rotate around the iss tethered by elastic cables?

they had a footnote next to the "up to 1.3 Gbps" claim, explaining that it's "Based on theoretical peak speeds. Actual speeds will be lower.". so, thanks for this enlightening article for us people who have no clue about technology whatsoever - and don't know how a footnote works or what the phrase "up to" means either.

internal flash isn't a bad thing for a video editor - you wouldn't want to have your footage on your system drive anyway. I can't see any relevant pluses (besides silent operation) too - size doesn't matter that much - pros would rather not spend a lot of money for new enclosures or replacements for their now homeless red rocket cards, video I/O Cards, LTO controllers, internal hdds, ... also, a lot of people use adobe software (after effects, premiere,...) which gets a huge performance boost from nvidia CUDA cards (think times 30-100 for some rendering-jobs) . the small form factor would make sense if it was rack-mountable - otherwise not so much. also there's no connectivity on the front - you have to turn around the whole thing every time you want to plug in an external harddrive - good luck with tons of cables already sticking out of it. i could see myself buying one if i'd also had the money for an external thunderbolt raid and if adobe would port their mercury-engine to openCL (or if apple offered a BTO Mac-Pro with Nvidia Cards)
