iphones do NOT have bluetooth anymore!
note, BLE (low energy) is NOT AT ALL even CLOSE to what BT was. its a totally new thing, not interoperable and sharing only the stupid name for marketing reasons.
apple is STOOPID for abandoning bt classic. yet another reason I have no desire to own any apple product. time after time, their control-freak nature rubs me the wrong way.
Lately it feels like looking for insight on Slashdot has become quite difficult, though I miss the humor more. I think that may be a problem with tempo. Not certain, but I speculate that the traffic volume is down, but the story tempo has remained unchanged. If that speculation is correct, then most stories fail to reach critical mass for discussion before they fall off the front page and effectively become invisible. Even worse, it would appear to be a negative feedback loop, in that less interesting discussions drives the traffic volume even lower.
I've seen the same. Slashdot has too many stories per day for the size of its reader base. Post count is starting to look like Soylent these days.
All large deposits and withdrawals are tracked - all serial numbers on all bills, scanned by the counting machine. I suspect many banks just go ahead and scan everything, rather than have 2 systems.
So he's the Ballmer of Apple? Hard to argue with that thus far.
Tim Cook probably buys from Amazon and has them deliver his groceries to his personal chef and deliver packages by drone to his mansions.
Cash is less traceable and causes you to spend less than non-cash alternatives.
Apples are great to eat and make hard cider with. I recommend ice cider, it's yummy.
Not the computer firm that has become Evil. That Apple is Rotten.
Latency is mostly the speed of light from the location to the surgeon. Which is why modern telepresence surgery robots have a buffer to handle that and complete operations locally with guidance from an assistant. The question is more how much information is presented to the surgeon over the pipe, and at what speed it's resolved for imaging. Imaging files are pretty huge, at least the ones I've seen.
You remember the surgical robot in that SF movie Ender's Game? That was one of the surgical robots here on campus. It actually exists.
Do not simplify the design of a program if a way can be found to make it complex and wonderful.
