Comment If it was real, it should be reproducible (Score 1) 276

If they can't replicate it, then was it ever really true?

I mean I'm really quite sure that metallic Hydrogen exists in Jupiter's core and likely other places in the cosmos, and that creating it was truly a feat of science/engineering.

However, if you can't replicate it then maybe you never actually had it the first time?

Comment Oh, is it 4GL time again? (Score 4, Informative) 337

All you have to do is specify the requirements, then you can just graphically draw it and put the app together! That's it! That's all you'll ever need to do. And it will work, just like it did in the 90s.

Actually, it will work exactly like it did in the 90s. Which is to say not at all, and to store up a load of 4GL take-out projects for the early 2000s...

Comment Re:HTC Did It First (Score 1) 205

Used to be reasonably common to have proprietary headphone sockets on phones. I seem to remember Motorola did it, and I -think- Ericsson but might be misremembering. There was an iPhone iteration that had a proprietary socket as well (or was it iPod? Not sure - they scrapped the decision after one generation). Taking them away completely isn't common yet but you're right, Apple wasn't the first to do so.

It always amused me that the first thing this brave new world of decentralised control recreated was....currency and commodity speculation. They're being introduced to the idea of support and resistance levels, all standard stuff. The difference with crypto is that the volatility resulting from these swings is enormous.

Comment Maybe just profit taking? (Score 4, Insightful) 296

I really think that a lot of folks had just said "oh 1k maybe time to "cash in"...

I bet it rebounds and will go through some oscillations every time it crosses 1k until folks get used to the idea that it can go to /higher than 1k then it will creep up and probably take a dip at 1.5k and/or 2k
