What about proper HD 1920 x 1080 on all channels rather than 544 x 576 and 1440 x 1080?
What about if real 3D is invented rather than fake Sterescopic?
What about Portable or Transportable TV?
IPTV only works for more than about 1% of viewers if it's Broadcast anyway... It's complementary to DTT, never a replacement. Mobile Phone IPTV is a complete non-starter unless it's Broadcast in disguise (which would likely be paytv only).
This is a stupid money grab by regulator. Also will not have decent mast density and coverage. Smaller cells (= More capacity) with x5 as many masts for 900MHz and above is a FAR better Mobile Solution.
Development of TV crippled.
The "Digital Dividend"? = Money for Regulator and lower costs for Mobile Operators with no significant increase in Rural coverage or performance. Nothing else for public.
What if TV channels started producing decent content?
Mobile is getting priority purely due to "captured" Regulator and periodic Licence fee cash boosts to Treasury (which comes from Mobile customers).
There should be a single Wholesale infrastructure with free licence and money to Treasury from the VAT etc of the Services.
A non-profit Trust or Foundation...
I must investigate ...
Of course if the Foundation decides to keep your blogs running, and their designated writer really feels a connection to you it brings a new dimension to a Ghost Writer producing content for a Blog.
Yes, don't "die". Make sure your executor or someone will get a notebook with every online detail. They then can be you for as long as needed ...
Use your real identity* only when absolutely legally required to**. Note T&C claiming you have to use a real name etc may not be legally enforceable, esp. in UK where you can effectively legally change your name to anything as long as fraud isn't involved.
Any email relies on an ISP account or Hosting etc, the accounts should be arranged to be paid for by someone as long as needed.
(* Not to be confused with ability to have an online visible name different from signup name)
(**Possibly only if the online Account needs a Credit Card.)
No need for Pansperia.
Requiring it is a "Turtles all the way down" syndrome.
Pansperia may or not be true. Suitable or unsuitable Organic Molecules can't prove or disprove the idea.
More likely stupid US Patents ignoring prior art that shouldn't have been granted.
Or possibly not.
Paging predates not just GSM but even Analogue Cellular phones.
Years of hiding it on installs and telling people not to use it.
People thought it was a sort of folder just to put stuff in, even on only ONE computer!
It's Shirley a UK website?
Or is it part Irish Funded?
N.I. in Island of Ireland, but still in UK.
Oh I don't know.
Look how many people use Chrome, iOS, don't block 3rd party sites using a browser plug-in, use a "points" Store Loyalty card, Android phone registered to their Google account (I never buy ANYTHING off Playstore, nor enable Mobile data or WiFi, perversely I use it as a phone, MP3 player, camera, jotter only connecting via USB storage mode).
Icon represents Tech Expertise of most people.
Can we have an article on the Water sloshing Economics Analogue computer?
I think this an Analogue Computer, but you can of course make Digital Computers with Cogwheels etc. Relays are easy if somewhat slow to build a digital computer (See Zuse Z1)
If it's anything like Nanny Ogg's cookbook they'd not mention it anyway ...
Strangely I typed the second o as a c (but spotted it)
From good to less good:
Pay Pal on eBay
Pay Pal elsewhere
IBAN (but IBAN is free in Euro area)
Bad to less bad:
Cash (Never do it) or Cheque to bearer/cash
PO, / wire money such as Western Union (Never do it) or Bank Draft
Gift tokens / vouchers (even iTunes or Amazon) may be worthless by the time the recipient tries to redeem them.
OK we don't expect iTunes or Amazon to die this Jan - March
Ban Twitter and Facebook and the Internet would be a more wholesome place?
(Did I hear someone complain about porn? It's not a Internet phenomenon and unlike Twitter isn't used by BBC instead of Journalism. It's been much the same for thousands of years).
GCSE needs a HUGE more expertise to pass.
Marketing inspired garbage that has little to do with the real world. Needs only ability to learn a simple Marketing script. No indication of real world sysadmin ability.
I passed at least four MS Exams, with no training course, so speak from experience.
They used resistive to get resolution. The low resolution capacitive existed at least late 1980s. The "holy grail" was handwriting and annotation. Because only BUSINESS users could afford the data.
Apple did deals for cheap data contracts.
They used 1980s gesture ideas from a bought in company (Fingerworks?) married to a cut down OSX to make iOS. The first iPhone was Samsung 6400 series ARM and commodity hardware. 8 years is 8 years WATCHING till they could do a phone by only some GUI development and commodity HW.
Ives then slaps it into a Dieter Rams inspired box that Braun would have done in 1959 if smart phones had existed.
Then MARKETING plus the first attractive for CONSUMER contracts.
The whole Jony Ive story is a fairy tale.
What is he on?
Does he believe this stuff?
44.1KHz isn't a problem. Actually today with oversampling and then DSP you can extend the response of real analogue content closer to the 22.05KHz limit. Almost no-one can hear the difference between 192kHz sampling where content is limited to 16kHz and limited to 24kHz on 48K playback.
The 44.1 and 48k chosen to make life easier for analogue anti-aliasing filters. But now with 192KHz sampling only a simpler filter is need and DSP can raise the limit from 12khHz / 14kHz (analogue anti-aliasing) to close half the storage/broadcast sample rate. Then the playback DAC interpolates and uses higher rate play back to allow simpler and better low pass analogue filters on analogue out.
The biggest problem though is bad mixing. Too much compression and processing and yet decent digital formats and FM don't need it as much as vinyl.
So how do we know if it's good for authors.
Without paying creators properly, eventually we will end up with only self published video, music, words and the good stuff will be hidden under heaps of dross and garbage.
There could be a docking standard. How does ISS work?
And the Dock can play back video or show web on the TV.
They are DOCKED kettles. None are really cordless.
Professional Mobile radio and DECT phones have used easy to drop in DOCKs, identical concept to a Cordless Kettle (none are wireless).
Wireless, which is usually nearly no contact inductive (none in production use Radio), charging is just stupid gimmick for fashonista technophiles that like stuff like DAB radio or "Home Theatre" using stupid plastic speakers barely better than a 1960s pocket Hong Kong radio.
Just design decent docks, that have HDMI, USB (host & slave), Stereo Line out and mic in sockets, in similar style to a DECT phone dock.
Forget the pointless "wireless" charger mats!
Keep your laws on your own Shores, USA,
Lets just fine the USA and USA companies for breaking OUR laws here.
I don't want a "New World Order" World Government run by USA. They have too much influence. An absolutely pernicious argument by Google given that USA is ultimately run for and by Big Business.
Or can you develop non-cloudy apps with no connection at all after installing?
Now if I can only figure out a Jump Drive we can explore other star systems
Mainly because I don't much like Java dev on Eclipse or anything else.
Surely a core necessity, effectively money apart from actual cash is digital, (SO, DD, IBAN, Debit Cards etc), so outsourcing IT is bonkers.
Possibly even a shotgun.
Possibly not moving with your body in a strange aspect with Insulated suit? (Though you'll soon get too hot... Gel freezer packs in the backpack heated up by your suit?)
I'm sure I'll figure a countermeasure.
Except that's gone.
All the nice fruit, plants and cute animals are gone already. As well as several attempts at letters of the alphabet.
Though a lot of them are out of business (Tangerine, Tulip, Apricot). Cherry still make switches I think.
Somehow too a Troll's Slab doesn't sound as nice as a Gnome's Tablet. (But don't tell the Trolltech founders I said that)
Actually "Gnome" is pretty daft name for a Desktop. If it was me in charge I'd licence them the name at so much upfront and then 0.5% per tablet sale list price. Then get a better name for the Desktop. (Frames was gone even before Windows).
I was waiting for that punch line ( build an even larger collider)
It will give the answer 42
Then they will want an even bigger one. I don't mind. Though I suspect the Overlords are guinea pigs, not mice. Not smelly and not widdling over everything.
It's easy to find people with poor Windows skills that blindly follow MS Marketing / MCSE advice rather than best practice.
All good Windows Sysadmins I ever knew last 15 years were also expert in Linux.
OLED life is poor. They are not "real" LEDs in the sense used in massive auditorium panels but combination of phosphors and screen printed diode like electroluminescent dots.
Also the colour isn't as good as real LEDs (Only Sony has one, and only a demo). RGB LED backlights and improved filters mean that high end LCDS are as good but cheaper than OLED
Maybe 4" sapphire screens inherently crack too easily and GTAT suspects this ...
Apple a greedy bully and GTAT greedy?
But if half true, then Apple are evil corporate bullies and their gadgets may be built on blood, sweat and tears paid for below market rate.
Customers of the equipment are not liable
Such a function should be patentable at all.
There is prior art
I wonder what someone with too much time spare will do with Dentures. Or body piercing studs/bars/rings. Or suspenders, or hair clips or bands.
Big Business *IS* the US gubermint
On the third hand?
You mean the gripping hand.
More sensible than stupid ISP blocking ...
No, because it's typical Google Arrogance,
There is very little inside. Bound to be more outside.
I think it's not optical but very high resolution radio imaging from an array of radio telescopes. Dust cloud.
The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is an astronomical interferometer of radio telescopes in the Atacama desert of northern Chile. Since a high and dry site is crucial to millimeter wavelength operations, the array has been constructed on the Chajnantor plateau at 5,000 meters altitude, near Llano de Chajnantor Observatory and Atacama Pathfinder Experiment. Consisting of 66 12-meter (39 ft), and 7-meter (23 ft) diameter radio telescopes observing at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths, ALMA is expected to provide insight on star birth during the early universe and detailed imaging of local star and planet formation.
ALMA is an international partnership between Europe, the United States, Canada, East Asia and the Republic of Chile. Costing about US$ 1.4 billion, it is the most expensive ground-based telescope in operation. ALMA began scientific observations in the second half of 2011 and the first images were released to the press on 3 October 2011. The array has been fully operational since March 2013
Been doing C++ since 1988. Last did any Modula-2 about 1997. I've forgotten most of it. What is really horrendous is maintaining or extending a Web Server application. I think I counted something like 9 languages on one project I worked at last year (if you count SQL, Oracle SQL stuff telling the engine what to do, HTML and CSS as "languages"). You are reduced to using a text editor, running on a test server with debug options on and it's like 1979, except you have multiple windows, 8G RAM, 2Tbyte storage and quad core 64bits instead of 6502 or Z80, one screen and 1M byte 8" floppies.
People writing gadget or desktop GUI applications in one language with a visual GUI editing forms/Windows etc don't know how cushy they have it. Even embedded JAL, C or Assembler for a PIC micro-controller has a better Compile Time environment and less error prone that Web Server development. It explains why Microwave ovens and Washing machines mostly work and the Internet is full of semi-broken poor usability websites full of eye candy and security flaws. Why on mailing lists are we STILL seeing almost every week SQL injection, PHP errors, cross site scripting, escalation of privilege etc?
Erlang can be used for Mobile.
It's not actually the maximum number of calls on an exchange (though related), but it is the unit of "traffic"
"When used to represent carried traffic, a value (which can be a non-integer such as 43.5) followed by “erlangs” represents the average number of concurrent calls carried by the circuits (or other service-providing elements), where that average is calculated over some reasonable period of time. "
You need Stochastic analysis to predict what traffic as system can carry. You can use these methods to predict actual speed for a contended backhaul of a known contention ratio (total subscribers x speed sold even if not connecting vs actual backhaul speed)
Most people used it as a sort of Pascal failing to understand the advantages of
1) Opaque Modules
2) Procedure Variables
3) Anonymous arrays etc of same size not compatible / Stronger typing
4) dynamic sized variables
5) Co-routines and Stack frames etc as part of language to create multi-CPU, Multi-threaded, Mutexes etc
6) default on Compiler features such as array bound checking
7) Zero need for ANY global variables (i.e. Local Persistent variables for repeated calls of function/procedure in a Module) or "global" only to nested modules
8)Separate compilation of modules without DLLs.
and many other features alien to Pascal. The only aspect of C++ better is syntax for objects (as M2 can do them sensibly). The failure of C++ is C compatibility. Too many C++ compiled programs are traditional C style. Doesn't anyone read what Bjarne Stroustrup (father of C++) said about C?
C# is of course really MS version of Java, and a creditable effort. No point in VB.net if you bother to learn C#
(The VB6 is another story, if you pretend you are writing C++ or Modula-2 in it and never did BASIC or Fortran).
Learning C (or any language for real projects) is mostly learning the Libraries. Especially which ones NOT to use. There are loads of traditional C lib functions you'd be mad to use.
But even if Google DID have the spectrum it's a loony idea. Their arrogance seems to know no bounds, they should hire an RF engineer AND listen to him/her.
