>>Keith Richard is cool. Apple, Google, Yahoo, Tumblr, Facebook and Myspace aren't, weren't and never could be.
What planet are you on? Apple is cool. Facebook was/is. Myspace definitely was once.
I wonder why they went for an 8-core CPU then, games are hard to multi-thread efficiently so I'd have thought a fast dual/quad core CPU would be better. But perhaps the price-point necessitates AMD.
I thought that too - just a black box. Hardly sleek based on that photo, not that it really matters IMO.
Is it actually a fancy 8-core CPU or just a standard i5 with hyperthreading?
Well you can already get apps for LoveFilm and Sky Now and iPlayer on XBox360 so why would it be any different?
When you are only targeting one specific hardware combo, you can tune for it.
Also... even the original XBox was x86 and based on Windows/DirectX.
Other than Kinect it seems a simple evolutionary update - better hardware, more integration, etc. Which is not a complaint really. But it seems like Kinect may again overshadow the platform itself... like nVidia accidentally entering the super-computer market this could be one of MS' big wins this decade.
XBox has used DirectX since the original XBox...
What ahppens is every game dev company writes their own abstraction libraries (game engine) around the underlying APIs so they don't have to write separate code for each platform for each game.
Charging weekly is hardly an issue. Build chargers into mouse-mats (actually I patent that).
A screen that turns off when not being used is not a problem either really in my view if you get advantages to make up for it.
By paying his corporation tax? Or by going back in time and changing his father's tax planning?
No doubt you have full copies of his tax records to indicate he is not a person but a corporation paying VAT in Luxembourg?
You don't need to upgrade a WP7 phone, you just wait a year for the free upgrade. Like 95% of Android users in fact. The only people who reliably upgrade their mobile OS in bulk are iPhone users because Apple virtually force you to.
Don't let the facts get in your way AC, those sales figures are totally irrelevant.
People said texting on a touchscreen would be lousy and not catch on, too.
But clearly the point is, the circuit can be killed so the strategy works!
You still used a hashtag.
If we've started putting hashtags in comments, that's a new low.
Or less politely, idiots.
Children are the next generation of adults you silly man.
That may indeed be you. Having your own company means you only need to take money out as needed so you can avoid seeing your personal bank balance getting so large you start frittering it away.
Looks like you got mentioned:
Get your contracts reviewed and insurance against investigations through PCG and you're set. Many also get PI cover.
Definitely still worth going Ltd.
People probably said the same about the mouse and GUIs once ;)
Actually, some of the Linuxtards on these forums probably STILL say it.
I've used OSX 10.5->10.8 a fair bit and I still think Win 7 is better than OSX.
It's still sales for MS. Many businesses skip a version anyway to save time & money, as long as they are buying Windows what does MS care... and many businesses will wait 1-2 years for issues to be discovered and fixed so we might be on 8.1/Blue by then and find they start switching at this point.
Who knows, if MS are going the Blue route maybe a business edition will allow even more of the Mettro stuff to be turned off as a policy?
If NPAPI is proprietary how come it is supported in WebKit/Chrome and was even supported in older IE.
Not being able to grasp the point under discussion and going off on a technical tangent is a typical nerd failing. Only nerds would find it ambiguous what was being discussed.
And we do have a standard for running native code on different platforms - it's called an application. No reason to run it through the browser at all, unless of course you are trying to turn the browser into the OS and show that you don't need anything else... hardly a coincidence it's Google doing this.
Having said that, plugins are a pig and NPAPI is pretty ancient, but browsers are moving away from plugins already.
Well done for missing the point, nobody said NaCl and ActiveX are alike technically (I know exactly what an ActiveX or NPAPI plugin is since I've written one). Rather that they are both attempts by dominant browsers to force standards on the world.
It is a fair comparison, although I'm not sure other browsers were/are allowed to implement ActiveX even if they wanted to? PNaCl seems a dumb idea to me, you could just write a desktop app, so I can't seem other browsers wanting it really. It's technically very cool but I don't want every app to be inside the browser.
Interesting point about the network cabling being an issue, they are quite heavy in comparison to the units themselves.
Does Windows support 32 cores?
Love the downvotes for what are entirely objective comments, based on the entirely factual nature of the iPad Vs Pro hardware.
Pro is a whole lot more hardware for your money than iPad. Plug in your monitor and keyboard and it is a real computer.
Loads of people seem genuinely interested in Surface PRO, while simultaneously laughing at Surface RT.
Windows 8 has the biggest ecosystem on the planet, apart possibly from Windows 7.
No. All they have to do is get businesses using it and people will learn quickly.
If they can roll it out to other nations this really could scare PayPal... to get money to people overseas PP is often the easiest (and even cheapest) way, but in many countries PP isn't able to link to local bank accounts. If Google can overcome that issue, you could see freelancers switching to it in droves.
It's almost like if you want an amazing service, you need to give something back.
How is that an issue... it's just another Android device like your smartphone. The difference is surely about the privacy of those in FRONT of the glasses, not those BEHIND?
It costs about $100 to advertise a job vacancy. It probably cost more than that to get this into the production version of the website. This is not about saving money.
You'd only see it if you're a developer, you muppet. It's great when people rush in to show how clever they are and trip over their own shoelaces...
So why not use the built-in "ignore commentard" functionality on the site then?
Just like Google, Mozilla, and everyone else then.
It is processed rather than being dumped straight on, generally speaking. Raw human sewage is not used due to disease risk.
If you like O2 and hate Sky surely you should want Sky to get gouged for the extra £20m?
Anyway I don't care about that, free BB is a great deal so why cut of my nose to spite my face?
The BBC fractured the rights, they could just have let it go like they do other things costing too much.
A company is a legal entity.
Why would O2 be desperate to keep you when they're losing the contract? Free BB & £200 on my mobile account is a brilliant deal for a 12 month contract which Sky will honour, after which I'll either leave or expect Sky to offer some crazy good deal to keep ex-O2 customers.
Surely the results are very location dependent... we find O2 excellent for speed and stability but others find them slow and crap.
O2 had unlimited usage and were charging £5.99 a month IIRC... hardly bad.
