Well done you.
Indeed. These are the best? You didn't accidentally sort them backwards?
I assume you people jumping to criticise Google for taking away other sites' sources of advertising revenue don't run ad-blockers. Otherwise saying it's short-sighted to support this for a better user experience would be pretty hypocritical.
The thing is, if I search for something and Google can show me what I need without me having to manually load another page, that's of benefit to my user experience.
I've only ever heard the opposite, atheists claiming Hitler as a Christian to support their arguments. I didn't even realise religious folk had tarred him as an example of atheism!
It's a funny old world.
I'm not sure the Koran is a rule book, but the Torah and Bible aren't so I'm going to assume you're just a lazy troll.
Yes but AC wanted to make a really original and cutting joke about "fairy stories", which we hadn't all heard before.
Reading the Bible on a train can get you some funny looks, especially if you're young and dressed for a smart city job.
Blocking outgoing data by default could be argued. Blocking all scripts on a website by default couldn't. Modern websites are not static HTML+CSS with a bit of JS thrown in for sparkle. JS is an integral part of a modern website!
If you make your browser safe than JS can't hurt it.
It already was, to those who have used it.
Not bothered about the Nook app/store, we buy all ebooks through Kindle anyway. Might look into it once we've properly got to grips with it.
I bought a regular HD one for £80 or something, several months ago, as an Xmas present for the wife. We're both very impressed with it, after an initial panic before realising we needed an update to add Google Play Store. For 1/3 of the price of an iPad mini, it's pretty sweet.
I wondered about rooting/wiping it with stock Android but not sure what it would gain us on a device used mostly for internet, Netflix and silly games from the Play store?
Crap joke. Even if it was fully replaced with the HTML5 web version, you still need processing grunt to run the code.
You've got to be a proper, proper nerd to not just feel disdain for those who can't build their own PC, but to express disbelief such people exist. You are more out of touch with the common man than most MPs.
It's measured on growth not absolute number.
If only GMail had really good anti-spam measures. You'd have to expect that since you're messaged from within G+, this will make it even easier for them to detect spam.
I often want to contact people I'm friends with on FB (and know in real life), and don't have their email. Which means I just send an FB message to them instead. So it doesn't seem a bad idea, except all my online friends are on FB not G+.
Oh, I hadn't realised that was the case. Getting it on SteamOS would then be a major differentiator.
You totally evaded his question. He wasn't talking about the cost of the OS. The entire point of the article is that Valve are pushing special SteamOS "consoles". Sure you can install the OS on your own PC but that is not what they are promoting.
And the original point stands... why bother with SteamOS on your own PC when Steam already works on regular Linux?
Saying Steam has hundreds of games while XB has only a few is a bit silly, because there are hundreds if not thousands of companies already working on XB games. And Steam games are generally not as big or fancy. Remember that indie games are sold on both XB and PS so there will be a glut of those on top of the big-name games.
Besides if number of games is the important issue, you'd go for a PS3 or 360 which have far more titles than Steam and are still getting new games.
If they are going up against consoles, I can't see this taking off. Console owners like the ease of use from a console.
On the other hand if they are wanting to attract Steam users - the people who will actually have heard of it - these people are generally PC gamers and PC gamers are normally PC gamers because they prefer playing games on a PC.
The niches of nerdy console gamer or PC gamer who wants to play on their TV seem pretty small to me... if they're not going to market this in a big way to compete with MS/Sony it's a bit hard to see it taking off.
Question: since it's basically a Linux PC does this mean it will support Netflix and all those things and/or some sort of app-store, so it can be used as home entertainment hub in the same way as a PS3/4?
It looks like somebody dropped it.
Why not? Are all my MP3s suddenly going to be in a much higher bitrate?
Rhubarb wine is supposed to be nice,
I'm aware how this works, or at least one implementation, but has anyone seen it in real life?
And so cheap they could give them away or release 3D print specs, to drive adoption.
Whether the applications are useful, I have to applaud the simplicity.
Like they used to get scabs into work during all the strikes in the 80s?
Yeah, one often wants to stand in a pitch-black room looking "out of the window" at a day-time scene. That's not at all weird.
Or perhaps you've forgotten that not every single person in the world lives in England, where house sizes are fairly small on average?
>>You are right, projection will never take off.
Your attempt to be a smart alec falls short when you remember that they turn all the lights off in the cinema to get the best results. With a projector the darkest you can ever get is the ambient lighting from the wall. That means in a well-lit room, it might look pretty but it's not going to be realistic.
I've not come across these type of projectors before, kind of neat.
For realistic wall/viewers (like in The Hunger Games) you surely need the wall itself to be the light-source though.
We may well discover a planet with life by 2020 but we won't know about the life!
Is Tor illegal or blacklisted?
Actually they don't say that. Well they do, but they are propagating a mis-quote.
No it isn't. Apple users are far more willing to hand over cash... the article itself says the bulk of these tablets are cheap models and those don't always even have access to the official app store let alone support running many of the top apps.
If you want to make money, write it for iOS.
Apple devices are better quality than cheap tablets by other manufacturers. They are not (for argument's sake) higher quality than top-end tablets from other manufacturers. However the bulk of android tablets sold are cheap tablets therefore apple tablets are higher quality than most android tablets.
Yes that's right, the official standard billion.
Well, you may have been -8 if you'd not had the surgery. Generally you can expect to go long-sighted sooner than you would've.
Is this dust or Dust we're talking about?
That's rather an inelegant solution though, and presumably the people buying these models of car value elegance over plain old bang for buck functionality.
By then motorways will offer wifi
Why don't you just use 3g on your phone/tablet and bluetooth to the car? Then you can also download stuff in advance and store it, etc.
Does the system at least store everything locally after the first play?
So basically this is a Star Trek 'clipboard'?
Megaslab is too obvious, what about laplet for a conjunction of laptop and tablet?
I hope you turn your TV off every day...
If it takes you two weeks to get an appointment, the leaflet is the least of your worries.
Have you geniuses not even considered simply phoning the surgery and asking the receptionist if they can put this on file for you, or give you a form to post?
With that level of GPU power we're not talking pretty displays or fancy HUDs - those could be done on a 10-year-old GPU. We're talking the ability to render to the inside of your windscreen a real-time view of what's outside, though it seems a silly thing to do!
Just like Columbus, Livingstone, Fiennes, Aldrin or for that matter any early astronaut or air force test pilot.
Everyone has to forfeit their life in return for getting to live one.
