Picture: oh look, its 1969 again.
here we go again
Look, we don't know if there will be a Euro after christmas, or if some natural disaster will wipe out a vital manufacturing process. We don't know if our money will still work in a years time.
We don't know if Samsung will be /allowed/ to sell in certain markets, or perhaps if Apple will.
We don't know the price the new zoom will be offered at, or which eBooks will be offered in europe
So how can we know the individual market shares to this precision?
Why is that then?
The article says that the translucent mirror implies an electronic viewfinder.
Why is that? I can imagine a translucent mirror with a conventional prism and optical viewfinder, albeit with a reduced brightness.

Oldish news, although the Dopamine mechanism may be newly quantified. Have a look at:
Proc. R. Soc. B November 7, 2006 273:2749-2755 ; Kevin D Lafferty; "Can the common brain parasite, Toxoplasma gondii, influence human culture?" -
"The latent prevalence of a long-lived and common brain parasite, Toxoplasma gondii, explains a statistically significant portion of the variance in aggregate neuroticism among populations, as well as in the ‘neurotic’ cultural dimensions of sex roles and uncertainty avoidance. "
http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2334/2/11 "The subjects with latent toxoplasmosis have significantly increased risk of traffic accidents than the noninfected subjects. "
Jaroslav Flegr, of Prague, have shown that widespread infection is associated with changing the sex ration from 104:100 boys:girls to 260:100.
This is the fine structure constant yes/no?
If so it is known (defined?) to be a ratio between electron charge, Planck constant, speed of light, & permativity/permeability of free space.
So which of these is also varying around the dipole? Seems like we only got half the story.
Sounds like a new type of michelson-morley to me.
All the UK offers I have seen are things like fish foot massage or "£90 for one lap of an airport in a Lambo". All things that cost nothing much, so selling them at half price is still worthwhile, especially since you can then slot the customers into yer off days.
In have yet to see anything with a fungible value on sale. All the offers are for things I would not have as a free gift, let alone at the Groupon price (and certainly not at the alleged "full" price).
It isn't real, is it?
I'd watch that!
No John sodding Cleese, no Harry fucking Hill, and preferably not Russel shitbrains Brand either.
Why not a female Q? Someone like Joanna Lumley? or Zoë Wanamaker?
Surely most of the delay has been raising the money, cos Question of Sport was rubbish.
ooh, how about whotisface  orf the X factor? 
 I don't actually know any of their names, I've only seen it once.
 I'm only stirring, here.
All true, but how cool would it be if people built new Dakotas? And Ford Trimotors?
Right. And who was running the company? The Balrog.
It can't be very difficult to find someone with 2 product lines, one of which is advertised as containing Scandium.

See, much as I dislike him, this is why he got rich. He understands the real world, not some sort of fantasy like the RIM people have.
I still don't like his company, but he goes up in my estimation again.
@James51: Whilst I might agree with you, it seems that the management at Rim aren't thinking like that. They've built a zebra, no-one wants a Zebra, so they are trying to convince people it's a racehorse. Doeasn't matter how good a Zebra it is, they are pretending they made something else.
This idea surfaced (!) a couple of years ago for hard disks. There, IMHO, the refutation is easier: a magnetic domain weighs the same no matter what way up it is.
Now I know less about the structure of eeprom cells, and it is not impossible that there are more minority carriers trapped in a '1' than a '0'. Are they symmetrical, these days, or a single junction? That might represent a difference in mass: but as others have said the battery would have to be topped back up before making any measurements.
Neither the blog you link to, or the web page it links to, mention anything outside the USA.
Nor, come to think of it, does the article mention that this is a Leftpondian project.
How about World TV, anyone? I'd love to watch Australian cop series, and watch google translate subtitling Polish ones.
The whole Smiley Virus thing is beyond odd. Are you sure she isn't Jeannette Krankey?
"am I a bad person?"
Yes, and There are relatively simple tabulations on wikilies too.
But surely I should be able to go to a chip makers wibble & find out what they make? what the architectures are? the instruction set & extensions? the interfaces, the memory types supported?
Not be subjected to hand waving & smoke and mirrors condescension?
Well, at last they are starting to think instead of shooting from the hip.
I hope its not too late for them.
I had waited a year for a webos device, and was badly let down with what they offered. They are going to have to do something truly remarkable now.
Oh well. Time to switch off.
Not because I have anything to hide, but because the cost of all that storage will fall on the ISP, and therefore on me.
If I had anything to hide, I could use an anoynymous vpn somewhere like latvia. I'm just fed up with being governed by complete morons.
I just wish they could explain their products on their web site. I can't find a simple tabulation of what the different processors available are.
All I can find are a page-per-product with things like "Edit really big movies!"
Back in the 80s I could get copies of the data sheets for things like CPUs and make informed decisions. Now I appear to be a moron.
But there is nothing evil about giving free samples before selling things.
or if there is, we will have to exorcise Persil, Kenco, and garages that let you have a weekend-long test drive.
Oh hang on. At least one of those is evil, isn't it?
Not sure what to think about this. I am, of course, against it on first principles.
But my buying history would almost certainly blow several fuses in the algorithm, so I would get my vengance that way.
