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
stale beer even staler ...
To me Kodak was Plus-X, Tri-X and the 'chromes.
Mines the one with the Weston Master IV and Leica M2 in the pocket.
The half price comparable PC myth ....
I bought my first Macbook in 2007 because it was CHEAPER than a comparable Sony or Asus. Ok, I could have settled for a Celeron instead of a C2D ...
The MBP I got in 2010 was cheaper again and I still use it all day long, with a SSD and 8GB RAM I installed myself.
Have a look at the Mac mini, it is not too expensive if you compare like to like. Same for the iMac compared to other AiO PCs.
Upgrades and repairs are a problem, no onsite service :(, and the more modern the less repairable they are.
A Retina Macbook Pro is not for me, I just don't want to buy a maxed out machine because I might need it next year. Same for the smaller iMac where one can't even upgrade RAM. Not to mention the braindead position of the SD cardslot on the back ....
So yes, Apple is less attractive to me now then it was two years ago, but let's have a look next year, when I need a new one :)
Re: forced obsolescence, Apple douchebaggery
It's bad enough with iOS5!
Re: forced obsolescence, Apple douchebaggery
"Oh sweet! So it'll transfer my development environment, and my servers, and my VMs, and my Kubuntu partition, and my Windows one?
No? Then perhaps upgrades are a better idea."
If you know how to clone a drive, it does.
No, powerusers use "touch" in a terminal window!
The time is GMT, isn't it
The ical link is without timezone information.
Re: …And we still have no idea what these patents are
Apple and MS have a Patent deal of some sort.
And I nearly believed in another report.
Now I have to convince the north sea, that the dikes are high enough and we don't have to spend more money on those.
Those loans where the fuse
which set lots of investment banks trading derivatives on fire.
If some of the things I'd been taught in Business School, some 20 years ago in the City :), are true, then there has to be a compromise.
Trading options on derivatives of derivatives nobody understands in nanoseconds is a very big risk. And one algorithm gone mad costs billions in minutes.
Nowadays 6 milliseconds latency make a difference of 100 million a year to a hedgefund in London trading in NY!
The Mac Mini doesn't look as expensive anymore
i5 and enough USB 3 ports to do something with it. No need to wast one for connectivity ...
MySQL is in userspace, this is a patch against the kernel. So it depends on lots of code under GPLv2 and it should be very hard to make closed source extensions without breaking someones copyrights.
Re: More proof...
As far as the legend goes, they didn't adopt those because of retraining cost. There could be a grain of truth to it :)
since when is a 1.8GHz i7 underpowered for desktop tasks?
Even more so
I don't expect my 32gb iPad to hold a 4k Video. On the other hand, it's an iPad 1 and I don't expect it to hold anything besides my manuals and textbooks :)
Re: Oh VMware
And just half an hour ago I fixed something on a windows 2k8r2 Server using an iPad in a pub.
Yes, VMs can, but you have to have a license to install Windows 7 or 8 in a VM first. This is certainly not the license your computer came preinstalled with.
