I hate apple, its business practices, its hipster fan boi fanbase and so on.
I would NEVER spend my own money on their devices (except for the shuffle).
I was given an IPAD by work to use and guess what, the shit works, it works very well it does the job its made for and its made for people who don't know (or who don't want to know) how to use computers and electronics at any level above basic user.
The Ipad work gave me is a brilliant device, would I ever but one NO FUCKING WAY.
Cause I like to tinker, if shit breaks I fix it, if I want to copy a movie to a device I want to plug it in have windows see a new drive and drag and drop my file. (yes I am a windows user, Yes I hear all you Linux users hissing, great OS but no time to learn it and it does not do everything I want so I don't use it).
Apple wont let you do that and guess what IT IS NOT MENT TO.
if you don't like apple don't buy it.
if you do like apple stop pretending that all the security and apple policies are good, they are not they are there for a reason, you do it apples way or fuck off.
so tired of the apple fan boi and the anti apple neck beard.
Our organisation continues to use old blackberrys, as part of my position I support and I administer these devices, they can be brilliant and secure their down fall is build quality, I am on my 5th device in two years, one of those was broken by a fall (that frankly would have annihilated an IPhone but only managed to shatter the screen on my BB) the rest have failed, currently my onscreen keyboard will not work and my phone will randomly select speaker in the middle of a call and so on.
I could swap it for another one but I just can’t be bothered anymore.
If they fixed these issues they would have been the perfect business phone.
You cant tell me that all the work done before hand did not help with this mission, it an impressive feat yes and Kudos to the indian space agency, but all the first time comments well its like telling me that a commercial airline pilot is better than a test pilot cause the commercial pilot never bailed and crashed an aircraft...
Facial Recognition (i don’t know if it can be done but 3D facial recognition taking into account the sides of the face by turning your head)
A voice phrase (easily recorded but useless by itself when combined with the above)
Would make sense to me
Greenshot an excellent (free) prgram for taking and editing screenies (like Snaggit) useful for making doco ect.
Drivers for connecting the most common phones for accessing photos (maybe not viable as there are so many models)
The latest drivers/software for any printers they are using, I prefer the non bloat where versions when i can get them.
Also maybe put a folder on the "all users"/public desktop with some very basic tools like batch files that show the system IP address,
****************** Show IP Address Batch******************
ipconfig/all |find "IPv4 Address"
In that folder there you should have important links for instance I use logmein to assist with my remote computers, so i have a link to the client access logmein webpage which the user has to go to for me to access their machine.
Would live to know which polly (or cousin, brother, sister ect of a polly) is getting their pockets lined in this deal...
I honestly beleieve that our wonderful leaders have no idea how sparse and large the country they run is.
Wirless broadband is a farse the only provider that works outside of metro is Telstra and the best bang for buck is $50 for 3GB. mind you Its faster than my ADSL 2+ which runs between 9 and 22 Mbps the LTE at my house will hit 44Mbps late at night.
EDIT: BTW Telstra charges $2500 a GB when you exceed your limit (not a typo) we had one guy run up a $300,000 bill on his 4G.
Just to put this in terms i fully understand the question is:
If we have an infinte number of pulses
Each pulse randomly + or -
And we had the ability to calculate the net result (of an infinte number)
We would have a significant number of either + or - at the end
Is that what we are trying to dettermine here ?
I was at the beach one day and caught some female tourist taking sneaky pics of my daughter, in the end i confronted her and told her to stop or her camera was going for a swim (I should have called the cops).
Google glasses is a cool idea but the world being full of dickheads it will inevitably be seen as a tool for perverts and wankers.
And sooner or later someone is going to end up missing a few front teeth.
It might not happen over night but as sure as shit it will happen.
