Do I get this right?
Icahn invested in the wrong company and didn't earn as much as more clever investors did?
>Google is working on a rival system, but one that doesn't require a phone - all the 'brains' are integrated into the car
And there's the answer. Google is working on it while Apple is delivering.
Microsoft delviers, too, but Ford customers seem somewhat unhappy with the Windows Experience in their cars.
I haven't heard of Intels Tizen for some time, are they still working on it?
QNX looks good to me, especially because car manufacturers have a lot of experience with it.
But providing connectivity to any android phone can be a problem, which android with which extensions and modifications on which hardware? Add Symbian and Windows Phone and we're in trouble.
Me? I don't even own a car anymore :)
Re: 2007 hardware obsolete?
Some of those have 64bit CPUs, but the GMA945 (?) Chipset is limited to 32bit. Otoh, that white Macbook I bought in April 2006 is now best described as "genuine vintage" with all its scratches, dents and missing keyboard caps.
Six year old hardware runs fine with Mavericks, I should know, I'm typing on a seven year old Macbook Pro at the moment.
So people with even older hardware are stuck. OTOH, my 8 year old white Macbook runs (or better crawls) Windows 7. The Intel Chipset is limited to 2GB RAM and let's not talk about the graphics card :(
Re: Dell service
Apple can't even touch Dell Service. I know, I have both :) and HP and IBM servers at customer sites.
My MBP 15" late 2009 workhorse has been to a certified repair shop several times while under Apple Care, I had to bring it there wait two weeks and pick it up again :(
Re: £1040 for an extra 52gb of ram???
Kingston DDR3 ECC 1866MHz KTA-MP318/16G close to 200 Euros each, you need 4 of those. So you can save some on Memory.
It's about the Android brand, isn't it?
As far as I understood the german report at heise.de, you have to install certain google apps at certain places to use the Android brand and logo.
Does Amazon use the Android logo?
I recommend windows as host, too. Add some SSDs to the setup and use ISCSI for your btrfs needs in a Linux guest.
We ported from whatever-it-was-hp-had-in-the-micro-xe to Risc and then to x86, why not to ARM?
With VMWares arguments we'd still be running that old HP-3000!
Re: Nobody remembers Bill Gates saved Apple
They use BSD in form of BSDlite and older FreeBSD userland. It was OpenBSD who needed 20.000 for its electricity bill.
One of the NeXt boxes was at CERN and one Tim Berners-Lee developed something totally irrelevant on it.
It's in our building, it runs our software, we're the biggest technology company, must be ours!
Yes, the answer is C++, but I forgot the question :)
They are somewhat entangled.
Patch Tuesday in the kitchen? The Horror!
Patches for your phone, tablet, laptop, PC, TV, microwave, blender, fridge, dishwasher, hairdryer, car, bicycle, razor and much more.
That'll be a very busy patch tuesday!
Mine's the one with paper and pencil in the pocket for when my fridge refuses to mail my shopping list.
Re: Harpoons, eh?
and we may call him Ismael :)
Descartes might disagree with the christian part in this. Galileo probably too and I'm unsure about Da Vinci, he had some protection from the christians when he made his dissections.
when we're at it
pass a law against french dressing, or any dressing that is, on salad!
Re: Any chance...
To me it looks as if they happily do the killing themselves if left alone for some time.

Re: It's all about the money
At least they'll have a more durable CE sticker :)
Re: Well hello ducky...
I wouldn't mind being trapped in the Tardis but prefer Martha or even Rose over a boy band!
Re: Yes well...
#2 and #4 are closely related. You have to either educate those who can't drive at a speed they can manage or have physics sort them out.
IMHO getting rid of ESP and such would help in the process ...
As a long time linux user I know that flash for non MS systems is a mixed bag at best. So I don't use it.
As far as I remember, Adobe claimed lacking support from the linux community for their fine software, looks like Apple, Google and Microsoft sent them real programmers to fix that mess and had to add additional security because it's still broken ...
Leaving the DNS root servers under control of a government which can not pay the personal to maintain them seems a bad idea to me.
And to brazils economy, Ms. Rousseffs government is about to cancel an order for 36 F/A-18 Super Hornets and save 4 billion dollars which might be better invested elsewhere in brazil .....
This depends on which side of the governments weapons you are and how you feel about being "collateral damage"
We still rely on financial software from 1995, it even has to be on a path which screams netware :)
Remember .pif files? Yeah, that's it!
So I gave wine a try and I got it to work on my macbook first and CentOS 6 later.
And then ...
we will have Micro USB as only solution for the coming decades with lots of adaptors to connect our Galaxy 15 to the USB 5.1 plug in out new Lenovo ThinkPad whatever ...
Ok, now I want to see him dropping the rifle in water, on dirt and concrete, will it fare better?
Re: New Option
I'm used to that, back from the days when I needed another computer in my Apple ][ to run CP/M :) Later I had to buy HP for MPE and DEC for VMS and IBM for OS400. It'll never change!
Do you mean the company who was first with USB instead of legacy connectors on that funky translucent 15" all in one computer? The one which has Thunderbolt and USB 3 in all but one of its current Computers?
Plus offsite storage in a bank vault :)
The rest of the world is a pretty big market for iPhones, but if they choose to sell it in the USA only, then it's probably ok. Like that fake Havana Club headacheinducer made somewhere from something and bottled and sold by Bacardi violating a trademark from Pernod-Ricard.
With at 34Mbit/s pipe at some 5000 Euros a month
I see a lot more storage in my server room!
>It's remarkable to me that certain people here seem to hate their own countries more than those who are actually despotic, enough to support Snowden in his vainglorious attempt to get recognition.
Funny you say that, I do love my country within reasonable limits. I really don't like GCHQ and PRISM to spy on me. Both are breaking german law doing it!
Re: Future Digital
Yes, and you get extremely detailed enlargements of film grains :)
Take your best slide and have it scanned at different resolutions at a pro shop, drum scanners and such, and then compare.
Lens flares and Leica Glow
Are both due to coating, shading and the lens design.
The "Leica Glow" is mostly found on old pictures taken with non aspherical lenses with a single coating. Modern multicoated aspherical Leica lenses don't show this "glow".
I mostly use 35mm lenses on small format film and have lots of them. The one I love most is a bastard made from an old 1938 Zeiss Biogon, a Jupiter 12 PT1030 from Arsenal in a Leica Thread Mount from another russian lens. The results, on film and digital, match the look from the old pictures my grandfather took with a comparable lens in the late 40s.
Lens flare? Yes, if I point it to a strong light, which my grampa taught me not to, and then they are less prominent then in J.J.s films.
If I use slide film instead of traditional B/W like FP4 or TriX, then I prefer the brutal sharpness of modern lens designs with close to perfect correction, aspherical elements and any single surface multicoated. Like the current Zeiss Biogon T* 2/35 in ZM mount. Lens flares? Not with one of those!
When I compare scanned Provia with pictures from a digital sensor, taken with the same lens, I can't see much of a difference, if at all.
How do you torture a BOFH?
Make him destroy his own kit!
so this must be Australia here at the north sea where the recently rebuilt dykes barely helped against last years floods.
Ok, so better not travel via UK if you happen to know somebody who published something embarrassing?
So I better not fly via UK
"This is a routine hazard for people of interest to spooks or serious police investigations, and it could be seen as a little odd that Greenwald, Miranda and Poitras didn't anticipate it."
Since I don't know if I'm of interest to spooks, I better take no chances.
Next trip to Brazil via Lisboa ...
Reduce Halon cost with a fireproof and airtight tape safe!
It's not about my sensitivity, I have to comply with german and european privacy laws. As long as I'm liable for any security breach I can't use cloud services by companies who have to comply with USA laws.
Sorry, no Office 365, gmail, outlook.com, Amazon .....
Re: It only just clicked
All well and good, as long as you don't earn a living selling PCs.
My companies confidential documents? Never!
Imagine you're Airbus Industries
Would you store any document in a cloud ready for the NSA to channel it to Boeing?
There was a british camera industry?
Exactly! You have to pay and pay again and again :)
Re: SETEC ASTRONOMY (See 'Sneekers')
The NSA does industrial espionage as well. So it's high time for EU companies who have competition in the US rethinks cloud services in the USA and by any US Company anywhere.
So yes, a traitor in the USA can be a hero anywhere else.
At last, from those who brought you Fosters
