I don't think I'll get one
... as a Mac developer a MacBook or Mini is OK... but they are damn nice to look at. Design IS important.
Re: 3rd generation iPad
Then people are stupid. The iPad they bought is still very fast, in fact the iPad2 is fast! They are NOT expecting people to upgrade every new version, which is why they've stopped numbering them.
The 1024x768 display on the iPad 2 is very nice. In a smaller screen it will be even nicer. A 2k resolution on a 8" screen is just a waste of battery power.
Re: when you can get a 7in tablet for £160
>>I don't think he's suggesting you use a 7" tablet instead. He's just saying if you can make a 7" tablet for that price, can't you make a 4" mp3 player/tablet (or whatever it is) for less?
In technology, it's well known that the smaller you make something the less it costs?
Re: Best get those scientists out there to do their research
Nice as it is hear you bitter anti-religious zealotry (or not), what does that have to do with the topic?
You wouldn't like it if I used a discussion on the new x86 chips to strong-arm in a gospel presentation, I'd wager.
Re: Steady decline
You cannot simply state that closed source == bad.
But thanks for the patronising suggestion anyone who likes Windows just hasn't seen anything better. I've been using Macs quite a lot recently and have to brush against Linux for work, and I'd chose Windows every time.
Re: "but that for some long-term Windows users it is simply too different"
You're just looking for a fight. They don't blame the users, they simply state users don't want so much change.
Get over yourself.
"over a hundred dollars on a graphics card"
Hardly a decent gaming GPU for $100!
You can certainly install plugins as normal... I have my own plugin installed.
Moving to nix just because you don't like W8 seems a big overreaction, if you like W7. Wait until W9 before deciding is my view... by that time the OS might genuinely be of little importance.
So set it so only your contacts can IM you, and set it to "appear offline".
3Mbit isn't enough for Twitter?
Re: Science is not democracy
It doesn't matter if science follows the majority view or not. The importance of this news is that people act on what they believe to be the facts. What people believe shapes the world more than the facts do.
I know it's not like that when you're coding but dismissing an article as useless because "Science is not democracy" is just plain ignorant.
near spot-on warming predictions found in a 30-year-old paper
You mean after all this time they managed to find one paper with predictions that are matched by subsequent facts? Never mind the thousands of papers which predicted different things,
Did you mean Anon or HSBC?
Re: We have all been there...
Great as it is to know better than everyone else Steve, you might not be aware some of us use the internet for important things.
Re: I know why I dislike the google
Bad the google.
If the DDOS attack is still ongoing, how do you get back online... and why can't the DDOS just continue running for days or weeks?
Re: Adobe, Autodesk, the Mafia...
Nobody is stopping you from using open-source alternatives. Hell, nobody is stopping you starting a project. If you all put your $1000 into a pot, that would buy some great developers.
almost impossible to enforce
One of those rules that is almost impossible to enforce unless you are so un observant you don't see the plod next to you.
You mean like how it's impossible to enforce car-pool lanes? Oh wait... they do enforce those.
I didn't know that was a right, I thought it was an opinion.
Re: Here we go again...
What about import duty?
Loads of people work a 9-5 job and then have 6 hours free in the evening.
Re: Uh huh.
And how are you going to watch that ripped version on your phone in a hotel when you didn't think ahead to copy it on?
Re: UltraViolet, classic bait and switch
Didn't you just copy-paste that from the last UV thread Paul? It's almost like you're some kind of lobbyist.
Re: Never use Ultraviolet code
That's probably because you never leave your bedroom?
Nobody is interested in your stupid ChromeBooks. Please stop wasting your time and money on this when you could be doing something cool and useful.
Re: UV filters
I know Netflix USA and UK have different content, but does the digital world work on the same regions system as DVD/BD?
Re: Uh, 16GB?
Buy an iPod classic then.
The point of a nano is you trade size for space... and you can very easily swap what albums are on. Every few days, every week, even every evening if you want.
16Gb is quite a lot of albums.
Re: They still make these ?
My phones have had MP3 support for ages, but I've never really felt comfortable using it as a MP3 player. I don't really even know why, but I would say I find the dedicated UI on my old 3rd/4th-gen nano is preferable to using it on my phone.
Do any of these exploits require any sort of brute-force or CPU-intensive stuff which would be far easier with the massive improvements in JS performance? I wondered if new vulnerabilities might be a side-effect of the JS 'arms race' between Chrome, IE and FF.
Re: Has there been a paradigm shift and nobody told me?
I think it's something called the "inter net"
If a product takes as long to develop as MS-Office but has 1/10 the user-base, it stands to reason it will cost 10X more.
This is the case with most pro creativity tools... look at Quark Express, Maya, 3DSMax, etc. I don't know if any of them ever tried dropping the price massively to see if many more started buying, it's not hard to imagine even normally moral folk would struggle to pay £2k for a software tool especially a freelancer.
Re: Missing from the review.....
It might be iTunes only on this device but historically that's definitely not the case. There are several free/open-source tools (for Windows at least) although which versions of iPod they can use varies. I use the very minimal SharePod program.
Re: Poor choice of materials?
The back isn't glass, who cares it it gets scratched?
Re: Poor choice of materials?
I took it to mean easy to scratch during assembly, i.e. on the inside... the outside is regular Gorilla (2?) glass isn't it?
