So, contrary to your statement, yes, Apple managed to hit the bar set by their competitors.
At the prices Apple charge for their laptops I expect them to far exceed the bar set by their far cheaper competitors. If they only meet it then there is nothing to justify the far higher prices...which is a big part of the problem with the new MBPs: they are average laptops with an insanely high price.
This is an early-Production issue, and will be quickly fixed with a software update.
Remember, the new MBPs boast much louder (and better-sounding) speakers. I would bet that they have upped the amplifier-power as well, and testing this particular thing slipped through the cracks.
An understandable growing-pain, considering it is a fairly obscure thing to test.
I don't even want speakers in a laptop. I never use them. Put batteries in the space otherwise taken by the speakers please.
I'm sure that Apple should act on the
Well it worked for headphone sockets on the iPhone.
That's why I program, write and do other things on a PC every day.
The plan9 window system was not great. But that didn't matter - what you could do on the command line was magic.
I haven't used it for years, but at times I think I should go back, just for the joy of how everything was easy to do through the file system.
>I'm actually surprised by this point that the whole business market hasn't gone thin client/RDP by this point.
We have (at least in my mega corporation), but we're using normal laptops hooked to big monitors as the thin client. All real work happens on Linux boxes via VNC. Thin clients were a promise that never got cheap enough to be justifiable when you could buy a PC for less.
And a link for a common example of reporting on this matter which took me very little time to Google for.
Biased in this context means the funding body (such as the US government) only funded and authorized studies that were looking for problems with pot consumption. If you fund 20 studies like that each treating the significant threshold of 5%, you can expect to get one significant claim even when there isn't a problem. Add to that the knowledge of researchers that they will get more funding if they find problems, they are going to ensure they find problems even when they don't exist.
Of course, that blood flow brings things like oxygen and such...
So you should strive to have high blood pressure right?
Also, what crappy hotels do you stay at that don't have TV in the rooms? Every hotel I've been in for the past few years has had a TV with HDMI in.
I welcome the day when they stop putting TVs in hotel rooms. I can make use of the desk space, but not when there's a telly on it.
That was last year under DICE. New owners put an end to it. http://www.pcworld.com/article...
Interesting, because as we can see from the comments, the smell still lingers. That fart was not silent but it sure was deadly.
seems like less blood flow would make the brain last longer and less pressure sonless stroke risk
That was my thought. Presumably less blood flow comes from less blood pressure, which is usually a good thing.
Simple solution, put the 7.3 turbo diesel into the tiny convertible.
The 3.5 Liter in the convertible seems to do ok. Maybe if I didn't mind being arrested, I could make use of a bigger engine.
Similarly I had a horse to pull. When the horse went away I had a series of house moves to help out with.
After a year not using it to haul anything, I sold it. It's was a bitch to park.
I think he's inferring that denial of science is biased based on the perceptions of the person doing the denying. People who drive an F350 King Ranch Ford Pickup are more likely to deny climate change. Stoners are more likely to deny Marijuana causing a lowering of blood flow to the brain. I suppose there could be some overlap in those two examples.
I used to drive an F350. I'm no climate change denier. Maybe that's why I sold it for a tiny convertible.
I tend to be skeptical on this because
A) Pot research has a history of being biased
B) Causality. It doesn't seem like a good study to show causality.
C) It's the first time I heard of such a thing as low blood flow in the brain. Why is that bad? How is that bad? If it's bad why doesn't it show up in epidemiological data?
Until the story and data all line up, I'll stick with 'I don't know'.
