That's YOUR world.
It may be good, it may be crap. I JUST DON'T FRACKING WANT TO - OKAY!
They are not called Armoured Dillo for nothing.
I left my coat at home, sorry...
We don't wish to know what goes on in your head all the time.
Then you can forget Intel.
I've had cheap LG monitors in the past, and they've been good.
When my Dad (81) clicks 'yes' to install it, not thinking it's a whole new OS, I'll be really angry.
Well, some days I could be using a windows PCs AND an iMac. So I shelved the scrawny Mac keyboard and it's dainty over sensitive mouse, and used a uk wireless keyboard and mouse instead. Using both types when at work would drive me crazy.
...Unlike the Apple keyboards. Hey, it's just personal taste.
Can Jon Ives can actually do a British keyboard I wonder? Hehee! :D
... A shame that GIMP has such a terrible name. People say they've photoshopped stuff even if they use GIMP. It took me a while getting used to the floating layer thing, but I can do all the stuff I did before with photoshop. Of course, I'm not a so called power-user. But a tool is a tool, and it all depends on what you're willing to learn.
They play many types of video file over the in built-in DLNA players. LG don't care about copyright, unlike Sony who seem to care about people downloading movies to watch on their TVs for free.
Probably because they own half of Hollywood.
Yeah, I have and old Windows 7 laptop, that hardly ever gets booted up. Every time I completely forget that there's six months worth of updates to plough through! Tedious.
The laptop is used as a tool to control something familiar, it's just that thing in a bag over there. It's easy to forget that everyday folk have no idea why a machine would do these "updates" or even why the hell it even needs to reboot.
But people like us who have become used PCs for a while now have got so used the the old reboot procedure, letting it do certain things, and letting it boot/reboot properly way before anything important.
Microsoft never seems to understand its own public, who don't give a damn about what a 'Microsoft' even is, let alone which version of OS is running on it. Why should they, it's just a tool. And probably the only thing that runs their off-the-shelf scoring software.
And terminology will go back to 'server' and 'dumb terminals'... probably.
Because 'f**k you', m-kay?...
... But I guess they were too timid to do that.
You get the joke quite early on and they play on that all the way through.
I've just been playing around with it, and it's actually OK so far. *Gasp*
It looks and acts like a simple shell to the software that you can install. Which is what you'd expect from an OS, isn't it? - Just an faint outline of control, not some monster waiting to growl at the user with indecipherable error messages.
That's the impression it gives anyway.
Yes, I am a little disappointed (!), I thought I'd hate it, but there's no point in lying. I need to give it some more time though...
'Ask me anything' it says on the task bar,,,
"Is this by the same dumb artist who designed the later Visual Studio interfaces?"
- A sort of emotionless and hungry look to it.
I think they said it looked dated, childish and OTT, and they were ashamed it ever existed.
They also claimed it it used up too much power, so that was also embarrassing for the poor dears' green cred.
A smart phone could walk the transparent rendering now of course.
Most people seemed to like it. I still use it as I can keep an easy check on a download if I put it's green bar behind the transparent task bar, so it always shows.
Also - Welcome to Gloucestershire!
No, as I suspect BTs power of lobbying whips goes unchallenged as usual.
...You should write an elaborate and complex Neural network system that lays over the crappy code to help it function correctly! [true story]
"Java (ask.com) and Divx (Wajam) is Pirated Software? I didn't know that!"
I don't need DivX, why would I need DivX? - OH right, it's used for 'ripped' stuff, right?
If you don't download shit you won't get shit, stop blaming the computer, it's YOU!
Stop using pirated software!! FOR EVER.
That copy of Photoshop you happen to have is not as innocent as you think, you don't know what it's allowing in, and most importantly, what it's sending out.
Just use MS Security Essentials - if it's good enough for my 80 year old Dad, then it's good enough for me. Neither of us download software from dodgy sites, anyway.
It's sad to think that some people would simply not believe me, but that pirating kid grew up.
There are no specs for the thing yet? Are there?
...off his Mac. Especially all that naughty media stuff.
Because designing my own watch face would be great fun, besides, nice looking watches cost a lot of money.
I just want a normal watch with a round digital face. A face that's always on, and it's design can be changed via a USB connection. Just a simple watch. Why do they always have to be 'smart,' it's stupid.
It doesn't look like XP because these supposed 'designers' can't bring themselves to understand that people actually liked the friendly look XP had. Oh no, it's got to be all modern and swishy - and completely unfamiliar. Fecking eedjuts.
Spell checkers do not replace humans!
How the heck did they do that? Amazing.
I think it does need a little more contrast though, as the colours are a bit pale.
Sometimes the word 'Brits' comes across as slightly derogatory. I wish people would stop using it- especially those living in the old British colonies!!! :D :p
There HAS to always to be an egg on top! No matter what you fry up.
I'm not buying a blooming cookery book!
...It's better with an egg on top!
The Bieber story will be told and re-told with more and more embellishment over the next thousand years, until all the rhetoric will be written down freshly from snippets of teenage writings and Lo, he'll appear to be a Jesus like figure - it's what happens, you know.
So what if it's mere ketchup.
If the recipe included ketchup, then you should try it. Or perhaps you should just replace all the condiments with raw Carolina Reaper Chillies instead, and stop being a pussy. :)
'Turned it off' - So you didn't see it at the cinema then?
And there's no point in watching something for 4 minutes, you can't gain anything from doing that.
It was meant to be tasteless. It was quite amusing when Jong-Un and Skylark's personalities hit it off, when all along it was Jong-Un pretending.
The insane gore seemed a little weird though.
.."What's wrong with you, you've still got a water supply, right?!" - the agent.
Supplied water - contract covered. Job done.
In all seriousness though, I wonder how much their productivity would increase if they had NO internet at all?... Not to mention you lot. :p
...and have switched to cloud storage...does this matter?
Most gave it about 2 out of 5 at the time!
Whenever I saw one of those film Critic Books you used to be able to get, I'd search through for Blade Runner and see how well it had done, and it was always panned - I never bought any of those film books of course as I presumed they would be wrong about other films as well, as they had no sense of spectacle, or atmosphere.
And it was actually a bloke that did the forward flipping in that scene! :p
Bitcoin is a commodity.
And a commodity with a sinking value.
Thanks for the feedback.
Cool. What are the front speakers like? They don't appear to be important to many reviewers, and they look like deal makers for me.
It's also not as fast as the iPad Air 2, despite the numbers on the specs.
The key difference is that the iPad Air 2 has 20nm chip architecture, where the Nexus 9 uses 28nm.
Having said that, it's not that far off in terms of speed, and single core tests reveal it to be faster than the new iPad. It just can't quite make it on all the other tests, which is a shame as I fell for the Tegra k1 Denver's hype as a new era device. Oh well.
Like I said, desktop resolution is not the same as in game resolution. Games go into full screen mode at any resolution they want. But 1920 is the usual resolution they aim for in development, currently.
This article doesn't say the game was running in 4 or 5k. So the quoted FPS here may not be accurately representing the machine's 5k screen.
That article suggests going down to 2k to prevent lagging in games, and reviewer states it's acceptable. A lot of code goes on in each pixel shader, so slow downs in massive resolutions makes perfect sense in terms of software and hardware.
5k of pixels is a lot to push through the graphics shaders, and I would have liked to know how the game they tested ran at full resolution.
