Right,... if they are copying Apple, the adapter will let you listen using headphones, but will not include pass-through charge capability, doubling the fail.
Apple, I think it is, is running an ad with some old guy sitting at the pool who turns the volume up on his iPhone and leaves it blaring on the table next to his lounge chair while he goes up and does a high dive. Thank goodness nobody with a brick handy wants to listen to anything other than the mariachi music at high volume that this guy is playing, or we'd see what it really means to have a thin phone and lithium battery fire.
Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it. The boom box of the 2020's is on our doorstep. No, in the streets and in the subways and at the park and
You can always use Bluetooth headphones.
You can try.
1. The battery goes dead after a short period of time, so then you can't.
2. You are in a WiFi-rich environment, which means you get about a 1' range for your bluetooth. I've actually been in places where even with the phone in my shirt pocket, if I turned my head left or right the signal was lost.
3. You have a smart watch which is linked via bluetooth, in which case you can't link a headphone at the same time (I've tried.)
4. You want to feed the audio to some wired system. (Yes there are bluetooth to jack adapters, but the one I have never seems to have a charged battery, so refer to #1).
We've known for decades that there was a potential risk.
We've known forever that everything is a potential risk. Calling something a "potential risk" doesn't mean it actually is. And correlation (the first study reported in your link) isn't causation.
I'd also point out that the very first popup at your link was an offer to join the class action suit. Hmmm. A site that wants people to help lawyers make money is talking about research that would entice people to help lawyers make more money. Hmmm. No possible bias there, huh?
This case will be a touchstone for future generations of EEs, the way the Tacoma Narrows Bridge is for civil engineers and Therac-25 is for software engineers.
And thalidomide for pharma.
We expect miracles from our scientists and then sue them into oblivion when they aren't perfect.
There are currently ads seeking class action participants for a lawsuit about talcum powder. It seems, after decades of use, women can get ovarian cancer if they used it. Who knew? Could anyone predict that?
Different concept. Res ipsa loquitur means "the thing speaks for itself."
But Thing never spoke for itself. It was Cousin Itt who spoke for itself. Thing could only knock. Geeze, don't you know nothin'?
And people will go up to the ATM machine and punch in their PIN numbers to withdraw the cash to pay for these LCD displays!
Sorry you made it too easy!
Counter-example: Walk along a school road, and look for the SCHOOL marking in the street. From the side, it's so distorted that it's very hard to make out what it says.
That's not a counter-example. The school marking is distorted so that it appears to be normal text TO THE DRIVER. It's text, we're used to seeing it as text.
But a zebra crossing has a fixed GROUND image, and drivers are most used to seeing it from that perspective. Just what is the "normal" perspective for that marking which is only ever seen from the side as it is painted on the ground? There is no other "normal" perspective. It needs to be seen as it would be were it on the ground, because that is the only way it is ever seen.
Trump is too busy starting a war with China by talking to Taiwan.
Yeah, that's the last straw. Taking a congratulatory phone call from a foreign leader is totally going to push China into attacking us. But the Obama administration selling Taiwan billions of dollars worth of sophisticated weapons systems, that's nothing that the Chinese would worry about.
Do you even listen to yourself?
the impacts of climate change were already factors in the conflicts driving a current crisis of migration into Europe, having been linked to the Arab Spring, the war in Syria and the Boko Haram terrorist insurgency
Boko Haram's name, translated, means "Western/Non-Islamic Education Is A Sin." They kill and rape in the name of that message. TFS directly links Boko Haram's insurgency to climate change.
It is a read hearing
The term you're looking for is "red herring." Red, the color, and herring, the fish. It comes from a technique used in training and testing fox hounds, to see if they can be too easily distracted.
So you're right, but only by accident, for the wrong reasons. The summary is trying to distract you from the evils of groups like Boko Haram by somehow making their willingness to slaughter villages and take hundreds of young girls into the jungle where they are then sold off as sex slaves somehow about climate change, rather than about the very reasons they plainly state that they do those exact things. People like you who try to tell those Africans that they're too dumb to know what they're saying, and that it's really the fault of climate change that they're murdering and raping their way through areas they're trying to convert to Islam
Which "smooth talk" is it that you think is somehow more persuasive in the context of climate change that makes someone who would otherwise not murder a girl's family in front of her eyes before assigning her to a rape camp
once it not only tracks a 2D head position, but also distance from the windshield.
I have a tablet that claims to be able to know when I am looking at the screen. I think this problem has been solved for quite a bit of time.
