I run iTunes on my older computer that I used for web stuff. An AMD 2500+ @2GHz with 2 GB RAM.
iTunes can't play a video, I get a few seconds of slide show followed by frozen video (sound keeps playing), but the same file plays fine with other players (at ~20% CPU). This is a 480x272 file, and if my iPod can play it whey can't iTunes running at 2 GHz?
Scientists know that red light is low energy, and blue is high energy. If you heat something up it will first glow red, as it gets hotter it will shift towards blue. They are scientists not interior decorators...
Ok, who came up with the conversion... about 60,000 Kelvin, or 107,540 F?
It's ABOUT 60,000 (I expect the original said 6x10^4) you can only say something like ABOUT 100,000 as you don't know the temp to the nearest 10 degrees.
The cards will pay for themselves? Is he daft? The public will pay for the cards, taxes, fees, or paying for a card... it's all the same thing. The money is coming out of the public's pocket, the cards don't pay anything!
The only way the cards could pay for themselves would be if they saved as much money in other areas as they cost, and there is NO chance of that.
Go back to the original story and click on a few of the links for other stories about Buzz. You will see stuff like...
"there's been concern from some people who thought their contacts were being made public without their knowledge (in particular the lists of people they follow, and the people following them)"
Why do people keep calling the ipad a big iphone? It's not even a phone!
It's a big ipod touch.
I use a normal dumb phone to make calls, runs for about a week on a charge.
I have a jail broken touch for media, portable computer, info store...
For me a bigger ipod that still fits in my pocket would be great, the ipad is just too big for what I use the ipod for.
If adobe didn't stuff the PDF file format with embedded crap like video we would not have this crap. But then no one would need to spend $150 on an upgrade every year if they didn't keep putting more and more crap into the format (I'm still using V6, nothing in v9 I want).
PDF should just be an electronic version of what you would put on a piece of paper. It should not be an interactive, multimedia, dog and pony show. If I wanted to do that I'd email my invoice to customers in Flash format :P
The plan to install a bunch of red light cameras in Toronto was scrapped because the province would not allow the city to shorten the yellow light enough for them to make money and the contractor quit (they were to get a cut of each ticket).
A. C. , Google "red light camera short yellow" if you think it's not a problem.
"Furthermore, please _PLEASE_ sort out the cross-country licencing balls."
Why is it like that? The record labels (and movie studios) like it like that. You talk to them and they say it's because of the licence... like it's some natural law or something, well just who wrote the licence?
I live in Canada. There are no MP3s on Amazon.ca. iTunes.ca is quite limited compared to some other countries. But I can (and have) order CDs and DVDs from amazon.com, co.uk, co.jp with no problem.
What about people who live in smaller countries? Is there an iTunes or amazon mp3 store for island? How about immigrants? My co-workers looking for some music from back home don't have much luck on iTunes.ca and can't use the iTunes store from their home country... so they torrent.
So if the stupid control freak studios want people to pay for music, they should stop putting up walls and let the people who are willing to pay for music pay.
IE 9 will work better with content built to open standards, but I expect it will still have lockin.
MS will include non-standard features, to get the best advantage you need to use MS development tools, MS Server(s), and IE 9 (and Windows Vista or better).
So all the corporate apps that were developed to only work with IE6 can be updated to only work with IE 9. But this time there is a much better chance that they will still work with IE 10.
The average album has 2 or 3 good tracks if your lucky. So if people buying from iTunes only buy 2 tracks and skip the filler crap that they would have got (and payed for) on a CD. That is going to cut the money they make. It's too bad that they can't make money by bundling crap and forcing people to buy it to get what they want anymore. I'm sure this "loss" makes up a good part of their decline in sales.
Now if we could just get cable TV companies to stop bundling so you only have to pay for the channels you want to watch. Lots of cable stations would go tits up and their staff out of work because no one actually watches them, they only get paid because they are in a bundle with something people do want to watch.
It's not a single purpose black box like a Camera or DVD player (though I did hack my DVD player). An iPod touch is not just an MP3/video player like a regular iPod. It can many things just by installing software of the owners choice.
Today I was having problems with interference with one of our wireless routers at work, I wanted to know what channels other networks in the building were using so I used WiFiFoFum and switched to a free channel, problem solved. Lucky my iPod is jail broken so I could still install it after Apple pulled it from the store, and read here that it was now available free.
Not hyper-boringness as it's still strange. You would need a strange value of zero for hyper-boringness.
I'm not sure how you would produce hyper-boringness, mixing positive strange and negative strange in an attempt to produce zero strange would likely result in a big bang and that's never boring.
Where did it say it was ONLY for other countries? If it's for other countries why would it say "the Court shall order the service provider to pay the copyright owner's costs". Note that there is nothing about the copyright owner paying the service providers costs if they are trying to pull a fast one.
And no laws are ever used for things it was never intended for? If terror laws can be used for dog poop what will people bend this to? How do you think a group like the Scientology nuts will use it?
I notice that you have to pay the copyright holders costs if they win, but I don't see anything about them paying if they are full of crap.
"The quality - both from a marketer and a user's experience - of a search engine depends heavily on the relevance of advertising"
No it depends on getting a useful response to your search on the first page.
With out a useful answer to your search there is no reason to use it. They don't come for the ads!
