YES! I own a 4k MSI laptop and can totally tell a difference with 4k. I can even use that laptop to power a 4k DCI display:
It is night and day; even on small screens. If you do a lot of photography work and have a camera that captures over 4000x?, it's really amazing. I love being able to pull up photos in Lightroom and see the entire image in fullscreen without scaling. They're really amazing:
Exactly. Commercial interests do this all the god damn time and never face criminal prosecution.
He should have been rich to start with. Then he could rig the market legally. They went after him because they hate competition.
We've always had one party. The Repubcrats and the Demolicans. The same people fund both of them. I don't see why everyone's upset. Obama bombed the fuck out of people, expanded predator drones, bombed some weddings, bombed funerals for those weddings, killed US citizens overseas without trials and passed Romney care which, although helping the poorest get something resembling crappy healthcare, has pretty much tied the middle class to the same shitty system they had before, except prices went up.
Trump is no better or worse than Hillary, or even Sanders for that matter (did people not hear him say he wanted to arm Jordanians? Did people forget he voted yes to make provisions of the patriot act permanent? Did we...did we watch the same debate?)
The last president that tried to change things in a meaningful way was shot to death in Dallas. Everyone else has been a puppet.
I hope it succeeded personally. There are a lot of naysayers and this would totally shut them up. It'll be a good two decades at least though before it's in production.
You can be a software engineer/network admin/dev-ops person without ever working a help desk job. The only reason I worked one for a year was because my dad wanted me to work at the same shitty company he wasted 18 years of his life at. I went from a real development and sys admin job to a helpdesk internship (I was in grad school so they let me in; made more than all the other interns at least by $2/hour since it was by years in school).
It wasn't all bad. I could cut down to 20 ~ 30 hours when grad school got really busy, and I could work on papers and ready books between calls. I made it one year and then went back to a real dev position.
I do think it's good to work helpdesk for a year. I feel like I have an appreciate on the shit they have to deal with.
Voting is the peasants suggestion box. Remember that when you Americans vote for the puppet on the left or the puppet on the right; both of which are part of the 1%, will continue to launch predator drones on brown people, will continue to use the CIA to start secrete illegal wars and will continue to spend more than the next eight highest defense spending countries combined to continue to fight more war war war.
Voting is symbolic, even is seemingly free representational democracies/republics.
So much Apple spam when these announcements come out. You don't see this about any other product line. Apple has manufactured a fucking culture around their products. That's why their company pulls in billions.
Apple has removed all GPLv3 applications from their OS and have even downgraded some apps to super old versions so they can use the GPLv2 version. I did a post about this and other OSS licenses a while back:
but...it's always been that way, with all the previous Apple products too.
Their fucking phones are the old smart phones on the market that don't use a USB standard.
You should talk to a lawyer if you saw something, and have them deliver your message to the police. Yes, being a good citizen can cost you money.
Here are several reasons why:
Umm...are you sure? I saw this girl talk in Las Vegas a few months ago at Defcon. This isn't new. This is a known exploit.
We have no idea. There's very little data at all on how the Stingray actually works. That's one of the big issues with it.
There is an increasing amount of evidence that Snowden still works for the CIA. He's the only one including this guy and Manning, who hasn't been caught (which just feels super suspicious
I don't think the Snowden story is real. I think it's most likely propaganda. And if that's fake, who is to say there is any legitimacy to this story either?
We live in 1984, just less totalitarian and more Brave New World (with all the good parts gone). We think we're free and have free media, but it's all propaganda. Want to prove it? Right now you think I'm a crazy conspiracy theorist nutbag. See: totally works. All dissenting opinions are made by tin foil hatters.
And you know what, we have no idea if this guy even is the ShadowBrokeer. All the "evidence" is totally classified for national security purposes. This guy might totally be railroaded. Hell, this guy may not even exist! This might be a whole media campaign just to keep the fear going. We really have no fucking idea.
Federal grants are offered for... research into the recreation potential of interplanetary space travel for the culturally disadvantaged.
