Re: vote of confidence in both ... reorganisation and in ... our restructuring
Well, some people are. Film sales have been declining at more than 25%pa for more than the last 10 years. They're at near 1% of what they were at their peak.
Blimey, what combination of format, emulsion, film speed and lens are you using to get the equivalent of 300 megapixels?

Shoot 'em up?
It doesn't look much like space invaders to me.
Re: OK I will spell it out. @ AC 13:24
This is called trying to "have your cake and eat it too".
Re: User choice
An OLED screen will have differing power consumption depending on pixel brightness. LCD power consumption (barring zoning of the backlight) is generally dictated by backlight brightness.
Re: Don Jefe
WTF is 'space exploration software'?
Re: What a pity...
It was only $60k.
Yeah, I was misled by the article to start with too.
Re: Comparing like with like
So I guess that's that for MS then.
"The only person who broke laws here is Snowden. He may feel justified in doing so, but that doesn't make it right."
No, what you mean to say is that doesn't make it legal. Whether or not it's right is a separate, and much less black and white, consideration.
I reckon it's Mel Gibson's character in the movie of the same name.
Re: Just one more thing...
A handful of 3840x2160 displays were announced at Computex. I don't know when they'll hit the market but nobody knows when the Mac Pro will either, given it contains unannounced Intel Ivy Bridge-E CPUs.
Re: New South Fucking Wales
You missed the important step after "go home"; test design on spouse/self/both.
And then fill in a prototype evaluation form.
Guess I'll just stick with my Atari VGS/2600 for another cycle.
Re: I'll tell you why it was bad.
So I shouldn't buy the ET cart that's currently listed on ebay for $6?
Re: @ribosome @Chris Miller
That depends whether you think being Quakers had anything to do with their insight.
"I'd go for banning the hatemongers. Including the ones who hate anyone religious. Oh, look, we've found one."
Hating people for their beliefs and hoping for an end to the institutions that indoctrinate people with those beliefs are two very different things.
"...trying to say who is and isn't a true practitioner of the faith, from outside the faith, is not very cool. Demanding absolute adherence to scripture just buys in to the extremists viewpoint."
No, it highlights the hypocrisy of picking and choosing beliefs from your religion that don't clash with modern society's standards.
Re: tom dial
They apply pretty much unchanged to the used car market, for instance. Should the manufacturers then be enabled to eliminate or control that market?
Interestingly, some have tried it, to a degree: http://www.ukrweekly.com/old/archive/1998/099804.shtml
I certainly do not support this kind of thing and while I don't know how it ended, I hope it didn't end well.
We in the antipodes get to elect a new government on 14 September.
Here's hoping your day is more exciting and satisfying than ours.
"New Coke was terribly icky sweet"
So what actually changed?
Re: Excuse me, sir...
Damn that Obama!
Please do not post this nonsense until you understand what "science" means. Thanks.
Re: Mother's Day (in North America and Australia)
It's an American tradition, absorbed by other countries.
So the correct form of the question is "why isn't ours the same as America's?"
Re: Matt Bryant
And I thought we were talking about education.
I don't dispute that Islam is despicable, but I don't pretend that means Christianity, or Judaism, or any other belief systems that belittle human dignity and intelligence aren't.
The US authorities often appear not to have even made it as far as Wikipedia in their "research".
Indeed, the AT&T website shows the HTC First as being $250 upfront on a one year contract, or $350 upfront on a rolling monthly contract. All that's changed here is the "discount" incentive on the two year contract.
Re: Let's get it right
The correct spelling of his name is right there in the article headline!
Re: jonathanb Mr Hawking, you should listen to “Palestinian academics”
"one clear constant is the decline in academic standards Islam brings to all countries it dominates."
I didn't know the US was dominated by islam. Oh wait.
The issue with respect to declining education standards is religion in general, not islam specifically.
I call that "dishonesty of the highest order."
Which is disappointing when it comes from an organisation that claims to be interested in protecting public health. They sound less like the scientists who demonstrated the link between smoking and cancer, and more like the tobacco companies, when they bluster and claim they don't need science to support their scaremongering.
Re: CURSE of WIN PHONE 8
If MS is to blame for HTC's troubles presumably it's also responsible for Samsung's success?
I have a mental image of you as a tax protester and/or hermit survivalist living in a hut at the top of a mountain in the remote wilderness.
How you can afford an internet connection up there without participating in society has me stumped though.
Re: Godwin's law invoked
Godwin's Law wasn't invoked here though.
I know I can't resist anyone who's eaten too much cabbage.
Re: And much hilarity ensued :-)
I too am easily amused by funny things.
Re: Plain & Simple
Replace "company" with "country" wherever you like.
Korean electronics and cars today don't reflect their reputation of 20 years ago, for example. China's stepping in to that end of the market.
Re: Plain & Simple
It's not ironic, it's how a lot of markets operate.
A new company comes in at the low end, carves out a share of the market selling cheap and cheerful products, but over time improves quality and features as it makes a name for itself, and gradually moves upmarket.
A new company comes in at the low end...
I bought a Logitech keyboard recently. I will hopefully not make the same mistake again.
It's backlit, but the backlight needs to be on permanently or the visibility of the characters is poor. The backlights are not very bright in a lit room. The backlights are two colours only (GB), when based on the publicity material I thought I was getting RGB, so you are stuck with one or other end of the visible spectrum; this is ergonomically poor.
Bring back the classic theme too.
Actually, just backport the updated file transfer dialog. The new task manager's neat but Sysinternals already had that covered.
We've already got a mob of lunatics who form government every now and then. They're called the National Party.
And then there's Bob Katter...
I'm right at home in my home too.
The MSM8625 is a dual core Cortex-A5, although every other source suggests the SoC is actually an MSM 8225, which is 200Mhz slower.
THAT, in conjunction with the Adreno 203 mentioned in the article, is exactly why its performance is so weak.
