no, it still wouldn't be a safe car, it would just be safer than in the hands of an inexperienced driver.
and stop worrying for another three years.
i guess at a time where most cars are robotic, they'd have an "emergency mode" that would allow them to drive to the hospital at the top possible speed. also, other robotic cars would make way for a car in emergency mode. so it would probably be safer and faster.
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?
GottLIEB (which means "loves god" or "loved by god), not Gottleib (which would mean "god's body" or "god's loaf"
for the times I absentmindedly touch the screen of my laptop and nothing happens until i realise that it's not a tablet.
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)
there are some field monitors for video/film work out there that have fullhd resolution. you'd still need an external battery and they are probably way more expensive than anything you'd want to spend on a monitor (think 1-3 13inch MBPs), but still... maybe - with a little bit of hacking - you could get something like an ipad retina display and hook it up to your computer. have a look at this: http://emerythacks.blogspot.co.at/2013/04/connecting-ipad-retina-lcd-to-pc.html
now we just need to wait for someone to finally build the world's first dirty bomb.
the raw-codec-party is quite a different thing than the exchangable-lens-mount-party. if it's about some quick ENG-style filming, i'd choose the sony in a heartbeat. but when it comes to budget movie shooting/color-grading, the bolex (and the black magic camera) are definitely something to take into consideration. also, you can use old c-mount lenses which probably won't cover the whole sensor of a sony.
for building better augmentations second: better eyes (zoom, microscope, night vision, x-ray...., and heat rays)
asking customers politely to buy the software after trying, providing an unlock-code for those who do, or limit your demo in an insignificant - but in the long run: annoying - way. (e.g., disable drag 'n drop - import). don't use any copy-protection. this way customers can try your product, but will get annoyed by the friendly "buy me"-pop-up if they like it and use it on a regular basis. pirates on the other hand probably won't bother removing only the pop-up/slight limitation if the product is otherwise fully functional.
this only fragments documentation and support. any web developer should know english anyways.
nice line of thought - but if he's in that kind of (not telling each other the truth - not really talking to each other) relationship, he's either pretty stupid and probably deserves getting married to a psychopath or should get out of this relationship asap.
