Several years ago I met an Italian whose family was from Sicily. In conversation about his life on the island it turned out his dad ran a road repair company that managed to get the whole island contract. It was a license to print money, because potholes were always 'appearing' and each pothole would need to be repaired 'several times'.
This is such a joke. Massive and I mean massive changes will have to happen to our streets and roads to allow safe driverless cars. No human driver means the car will have to react to every single danger or obstacle in an ultra safe and appropriate manner.
Cue kids playing chicken and winning every time. Traffic comes to a standstill.
Sounds like your house is not designed for passive cooling...but then looking around at houses and apartments in hot countries, the majority don't pay even lip service to passive cooling. Having done some research on this, Australia seems to have the most practical experience and designs.
We are moving house very soon, and before all this happened I had decided TT was bollocks, so was already to cut them off and move to someone else. Trouble is the 'most secure big name' i.e. Virgin is not wired up to our new street, so I have to look elsewhere.
Cant wait to say bye-bye.
Exactly, I've been a Mac user since 1998 and I'd describe myself as a power user. I also use torrents. So far I haven't come across any issues within the OS. I monitor all Internet traffic and have never seen anything constantly making access. I don't experience any slow downs. Perhaps some of the more techie guys here can show me where to look?
Back in 1995 I visited some friends up in the Pyrenees on the Spanish side. All they had for leccy, were PV cells and lead batteries. They just about managed day to day. The cost of bring mains power to their house was not cost effective. This is where I can see the advantages, almost anywhere the cost of bringing power lines is not cost effective. I don't know the numbers, but there must be a very large population who don't have mains power and to bring it in is not cost effective. It could be sold by the utility as a package of PV+battery.
What if all US sold items were freighted from China in custom designed, re-useable stackers, designed to pack the maximum number of items per shipping container. Space costs money in freight. This may not apply to small items like iPhones, watches etc. But on iMacs it could make a big difference.
thanks, you learn something everyday here.
My favourite is cmd/space for spotlight, then type first one or two letters of the app to open. I am convinced it is a 1000% improvement on using the dock, which I despised the moment it arrived and still find it an ergonomic mess. I have friends who are not power users, with maybe 20+ icons in the dock on a 13" laptop, the dock hide feature turned on and magnify turned on...drives me nuts to use their laptop.
TBH I miss the OS9 drop down box from the Apple icon, with the list of apps in there.
You know there is already one manufacturer making a motor/battery combo that fits in the down tube and drives the BB shaft through a gear? Cannot remember their name, but I thought it looked a brilliant idea and one that could be developed further. They make the diameter suitable for most standard downtimes, but why not make a fatter downtime and fit a bigger motor/battery combo.
I have a relative (distant) who worked at a big datacenter just outside Cairo and stayed on all through the uprisings. Maybe I should get him to contribute. I don't think it will be quite as graphic or dangerous for that matter. Their employer took pretty good care of their safety, they spent most of the day and nights at the centre which had armed guards.
Don't get me wrong here, I am not looking for an argument. But Apple's implementation seems OK to me, sans a proper filing system.
Under the photos app there are 'collections' and within that are 'moments'. I have a 'moment' that includes all todays photos and email saved pics. If I am in the camera app, I tap 'collections' that takes me to the collections page.
I'm not sure how it could have been done much different really, although I am sure there are other ways. But it feels pretty intuitive.
"Another of my relatives (older generation) was recently bought an iPad to keep her in touch on e-mail. It's confusing the heck out of her because of the way that it automatically files stuff, in particular different locations for the pictures that she takes with the iPad and pictures that are sent by e-mail and detached."
I just saved a pic from an email and it appeared in my photo gallery alongside all the other photos. That seems quite logical to me.
