I have 18 Mbps down with low-latency, I used to have Netflix - the content stream in general was terrible, as far as quality of the picture went. Many compression artifacts, some streaming packet drops leading to hiccups in the picture, etc. If your TV is bigger than 40", then Netflix quality is abysmal, the bigger it is the more obvious all the problems. Sound comes through usually fine. I also have Hulu Plus currently, I'll be giving it another try soon.
The biggest piece of humor here is that I have absolutely 0 issues capturing any video stream, no matter the DRM, even off a tablet. Neither does anyone else. If you can accept the terrible quality of streaming video, then a camcorder version wouldn't upset you at all either. This is why BD sales are increasing, but not stellar. As bigger TVs become standard, the picture quality becomes far more important. And having ripped BDs on your media server is the only way to enjoy them, even for a single viewing - skip all the commercial intro nonsense. Just the movie please.
pesronally i think that old computers are stupid. and anyone who wants to have an old computer that works and to use it as a computers is stupid. if you use it as a fishbowel or a toilet that i would understand. but otherwise just stupid.
Personally, I think anyone who thinks what the parent thinks is stupid. An old computer that works can still be used as a basic tool. We still have an old 386 that takes inventory for a lab. Why update it? It's not on a network...no malware concern...no software updates necessary. Should we go blow a few hundred bucks on a new PC that will require additional hundreds in IT support? I don't think so.
I personally own some old working TI calculators (see http://www.vintagecalculators.com/html/texas_instruments_2500.html). They work, should I throw them away?
I read your link - I don't know why you're surprised. The article itself states 500K years as the oldest known successful extraction and reading of DNA.
Furthermore, all the assumptions and theories are based on the analysis of 3000-8000 year old bird bones. The most significant factors in DNA degradation are stated to be exposure to water, followed by oxygen and micro-organism activity. Enzymes will only take you so far, and are listed as the starting point. I'd say that this particular theory will undergo quite a bit scrutiny in the coming years, and will at best be a rule of thumb since there are far more variables to account for than they have so far.
Agree with parent. Airplane is a must see movie. But as was pointed out, many of the jokes are likely to go unnoticed, or not understood by those who didn't live in or study the era.
Funny, my granite is eleven years old, stain free, and never once resealed. Where do you dig up this kind of bullshit?
There is also an anonymously queryable subset of the records in the report. I haven't read the full report yet to see what that entails. Not saying it's super-duper, but it's not quite that bad.
give it a year and it will be.
That was interesting enough to look up - some brief skimming reveals that the saying appears to be of recent British origin, although they were in China, and probably mistranslated something. Learn something new and interesting everyday. It still sounds good though I'll now have to refer to it as a British curse instead.
