JG Ballard's Billennium is an excellent story about the psychological ramifications of population growth.
That's true. Unity is basically building on what was started with Ubuntu Netbook Remix which had to work on very constrained screen sizes. They'd be better off makiing it more dynamic, so it picked an apppropriate default based on the screen size but let itself be fixed to a particular mode by flipping a few toggles in the options.
They are definitely known for the quality of their music, bombast and a stage show aren't enough to maintain a 30 year career.
BYDttS might be their only number one single, but they've had lots of number one albums which is what they're really famous for, and that number one single only happened because EMI released it on xmas eve with multiple formats to ensure a high placing. The company exploited the decline of the single at the right time. It is far from their most know or most popular song, in fact it's probably barely known, most of the popular ones hit the top ten or top twenty but went no where near number one.
It's like a microcosm of what might have happened worldwide had ActiveX been as popular as they'd wanted to be.
The DualShock 4 does have an audio jack and the included headset works with that. I'm still surprised they've dropped Bluetooth support though.
This was also the kind of excercise that lead to the BBC's Political Editor having a stroke so YMMV.
Want to solve world hunger, you can, just don't you dare splice a tomato gene with an eggplant.
It depends if the price of solving world hunger comes at the cost of allowing you to turn a common foodstuff into a patentable product for which you control distribtion. So less solving world hunger and more creating a new dependency. The whole frankenfoods stuff is a useful distraction.
I'm also content in my beliefs of a deistic reality, as it does not contradict available data and satisfies the psychological need for purpose in life and the possibility of an afterlife. Blind faith is absurd, but on the other hand so is atheism; the premise being that if life is purposeless, why would one subject themselves to the trials and tribulations of life? As life is a death sentence right from the start, logic implies that one should end their life once they belief atheism as fact, however society correctly asserts that this is a mental defect because one can not know with absolute certainty that life is pointless. Belief in abrahamic religions is equally delusional, harm others, and should also be assumed to be a mental defect.
Atheism is just a lack of faith. Life is worth experiencing for it's own sake. Why would the enjoyment or purpose of life depend on the promise of an afterlife? And a promise dependant largely on which culture you were born into.
They still have seriously good stock where I live as well, as least as far as fiction is concerned, it might be different if you're searching for specialist non-fiction books where the the selection tends to be a lot smaller.
He's not, just talking about what's currently taught as ICT in schools. For a while now it's been about how to use Word, Excel and PowerPoint, i.e. Secretarial Skills. The scope of what's taught has been narrowed massively.
The main target market for a lot of the handheld consoles is kids, our kids had a couple of DS-lites for Xmas. The mobile phone market doesn't compete with this as they're both under ten and don't have mobile phones, Nintendo also had some success selling to much older casual gamers. A group that often doesn't get on with touch controls but can handle the stylus based gameplay of the DS.
The thing that mobile games are the biggest threat to are casual PC and facebook games. Those kind of games that offer a temporary distraction.
I think all those triple-A publishers who are hoping to enjoy a mobile gold rush are going to be in for a bit of a wake up call. It seems insane to me, as it's a market better suited to lots of small players having the occasional hit. It's as if Pepsi suddenly decided to get into the Lemonade stand market because a kid managed to make it big.
It seems strange to give Microsoft a free pass while having such passionate loathing for Sony given all Microsoft's actions over the years.
I've got Steam installed on Ubuntu but it's a long way from being a console replacement just yet, and I'm not switching my perfectly functional PC to Windows.
