"meaningful and rehabilitative programming". Were they going to learn Fortran?
Hasselblad have had a similar problem keeping paint on their cameras. Perhaps DJI can make the company fly. IWGMC
My LG G4 is by far and away the best Smartphone I have ever had and I have owned Samsungs, a Motorola and two HTCs. The LG smartwatch I have is still working after over 2 years of daily use. Maybe you were unlucky. My Samsung S4's on/off switch failed after less than two years and the other one I owned suffered badly from dust ingress. I like to be able to stick a micro SDXC card in my 'phone and replace the battery if I want to. Have a lovely weekend.
Or we could just give the police the right to tell your selfish neighbour to shut the fuck up or go to jail - now. I dream of all the selfish cunts in this world suffering unimaginable pain in the next or even better instant retribution. Selfishness is one of the greatest malignancies blighting the 21st century and if there is a god then it's failing to wipe out the selfish. No wonder I'm an atheist.
The battery life has never been a constant worry on my G4 which I have had since last June, and the 'phone is running Marshmallow, having received an OTA update, on an EE 4g contract. The camera is the best I have ever had on a 'phone and I love the dng option. The screen is amazing, I can swap out the battery, I have a 64gb card in it. What's not to like? I won't buy another Samsung 'phone as the two I have had have been a disappointment. The Tocco - remember that? - suffered from chronic dust ingress and the S4's power switch failed after less than 2 years - POS - and the camera was shite. My G4 could be a keeper.
Get over it fanbois.
. . because none of the journalists seems to be able to tell us how these exploits can happen. Side-loading? Dodgy wif-fi? What the fuck? Answers anyone?
Personally, I find the additional improvement in sound quality worth paying the extra for with Blu-ray. Also, new release Blu-ray discs are now not much more expensive than the DVD equivalent, so what's the point in buying the DVD? IWGMC to protect myself from the downvote storm.
So, can someone tell me if this can happen if I install an app from the Play Store or is it only possible via side-loading. If it's the latter, WTF.
"whether that is in-body or via a hot-shoe accessory for techno-laggards like Canon."
Pray, to what kind of hot-shoe (sic) accessory do you allude Mark 65? I don't have any problem tethering Canon DSLRs via Capture One.
I miss Tandy :( There was a store in Royal Parade in Plymouth where I could buy components and tools made out of something softer than chocolate. They used to send me a newspaper thing in the post every now and again with computer type stuff in it at crazy prices. Happy days.
As PV or Solar Farms as the f**king tree huggers call them are spreading across Cornwall, I wonder how long it will be before someone hacks these for "fun". The sites look like concentration camps with their fences and CCTV. The only benefit is that they are wildlife havens although I expect they do manage to generate a couple of megawatts . . . which cannot be stored. Why not divert some of the millions wasted on AGW research towards energy storage. I will get my coat as it's still quite chilly here.
Haha, too many people here are getting their knickers in a twist. Just think how much the government can waste trying to "fix" "climate change" - ****ing billions!
Do drivers need any more distractions, any more displays, any more things with which to fiddle while they hog lane three at 90mph in pouring rain?
Good shout. I know someone who has one of these on the front of his PC so he could light his "cigarettes" with one of those glow plug jobs which every car used to have.
More distractions with which the driver can fiddle - great.
Never mind bless you. Make yourself a nice warm drink and head off to bed with a good book. Nighty night!
Careful, or I'll pour cold water over your tiny erection. Every man needs a small garden shed after all does he not?
. . . . so it will be made from Satan's DNA . . . .
It's all hot air, and what a lovely mild winter we're having? I hope all those warmist freaks fall on their swords when the next ice age sets in. No they won't, because they are spineless liberal retards who probably eat too many vegetables and create more than their fair share of hahaha "greenhouse" gases via flatulence and whilst driving their fucking hybrid vehicles with their precious little retardlets strapped into the back smearing saliva over their fucking iPads. Yeah, coz it's their prerogative to breed isn't it? Unchecked population growth is the biggest "threat" facing planet earth. Even pseudo-intelligent people acknowledge that. look forward to reacquainting myself with a Lee Enfield 303.
Rubbish! I chose not to "sign in" to my Live account and I can install anything I want on my Windows 8.1 machine. Suggest you get your facts right before you bother writing this crap.
Well if they make 'em sweat they might lose some weight, but I wouldn't want to work there if the elves don't get a fresh shirt every day.
Funniest thing I've seen on here for ages - thanks Craigness!
Well Sony might have come up with the goods for you with the new QX wireless camera / lens gismo invention.
Higher education seems to be employing the same business model as the BBC. It pays huge salaries to people with little or no commercial experience - they've probably not even worked in a shop - to wield an axe over employees who might have decided that to work in education was ethical, like working for charity. Unfortunately both sectors have been ruined by commercialisation. Oh to be self-employed.
Who would adam 'n' eve it?
IWGMC even though it's nearly summer.
Or you could avoid using any software at all and shoot film and print your images in a darkroom like everyone used to do only about 10 years ago . . . . Or maybe you prefer to work in a room with 18% grey walls and subdued lighting and hope that your printer can satisfy your needs. Oh BTW, yes, I have done this in colour and black and white and it's really not that hard and it involves standing up and not sitting down which is apparently very bad for homo sapiens. Is digital so appealing then, given the "costs"?
I won't need a coat as, at the moment, it's not raining in Cornwall.
"down to about 250-300 quid each . . . . "
That's quite a few books or nice little trips out to the park or the beach or the ghetto even. I hope nobody in teaching has the balls to turn around and say that education is underfunded in this god-forsaken cold grey country because they need . . . . it'll be censored or the thought police will smash down my front door if I type it. I will get my "outerwear".
Surely they're made by the same God that should have saved Steve Jobs from his untimely departure and eased his travelator ascendancy to Heaven? Or am I being glib? No, thought not.
Have owned two albeit, BL tinged, British cars, three French cars (but not Renault), and one Japanese car and have driven many of them around the clock. The French cars were agreeably reliable, the Japanese one almost faultless and the British cars . . . . ask Red Robbo as he should be very proud of what he did to the wonderful British car industry and can probably tell you why the cars made in his era were so wonderful too.
Why does a "child" need a smartphone?
I suspect you are only using your genitals to micturate. That "thing" can give pleasure too you know, and no, you won't go blind.
Hopefully Browett will destroy the Apple empire; he certainly didn't save the limping DSGI or whatever that bunch of arseholes call themselves these days so he's got a cracking track record Gromit!
The same people, or a similar demographic, are those who consume the shite that is served up as entertainment and broadcast to the world's television receivers these days. It's the sort of shite that is comparable to the entertainment provided by the freak shows of mankind's illustrious past. It WILL all end in tears and Jobs will be vilified; oh yeah, he already is. IWGMC and it will be made of bile proof material so you fanbois need not bother firing your excrement at me because it will slide off . . . . . hehehehehe.
Has anyone considered the dimensions of the "average" paperback? The Nexus 7 is almost exactly the height, slightly narrower and substantially less thick than most paperbacks - even Roland Barthes' seminal work Camera Lucida ISBN 0-09-922541-7. Perhaps its diminutive dimensions are part of its appeal. Looking at my own images on the 'net I can't see any problem with colour, contrast or sharpness compared to viewing the same images on a regular monitor; perhaps a little less saturated that's all. Chacun à son goût.
Why does Jake compare the Pentax to his 'Blad? The screen on the back of the CF is so small that it's almost useless other than to read the settings on it. Unless you tether the thing and shoot into Phocus or Flexcolor you can't see what you're doing or check your focus AF or manual. Yes you can stick your film back on and show your sprogs how effing marvellous Pan F looks but are talking about quite a few $£ to set up a darkroom even if you buy used and in the UK your water will probably cost you as much as your chems by the time you've washed. The words git and smug spring to mind.
I observe Kodak's demise with a huge amount of sadness. Paradoxically, I look forward to Apple's demise with a huge amount of glee hehehehe.
and why does anyone care?
Prius owners have a reputation for breaking wind in a most unpleasant fashion thereby rendering ineffectual their carbon reduction smugness. One day I'll get around to lighting one of their farts in a car park; it WILL make local radio news even if I only singe their clothing with the lance that I carry in my Hummer.
I worked not very hard for an Honours Degree in Classics (in the '80s), but you are a TWAT.
I have yet to meet ANY Apple consumer who, when their prized possession fails, has enjoyed anything other than a poor response from their local re-seller or those dweebs in Cupertino. Add to that the insult that they have paid an amount of money for components for which Wintel manufacturers would charge roughly half and inevitably they feel pretty disappointed or worse.
I heard the guy, who did these tests, interviewed on the radio. It seems his job involves "exhaustive" tests attempting to replicate any given scenario involving suffocation victims some of whom are children; the guy deserves a medal.
Get back into your walled garden you fanboi and don't even think about trying to climb out AGAIN! hehehehehe.
Doesn't the fact that Apple has removed the number pad from its keyboards speak volumes about what it assumes about its target audience? Compare the fact that they ship iMacs with wireless keyboards which requires the end user to buy a cheap and nasty wired replacement, because in public places i.e. educational establishments, anything that is not connected or worthless will become the victim of a recidivist. Cheap keyboard and cheap mouse with over-priced iMac - quite funny really.
So, NomNomNom you must be some kind of scientist, or perhaps you know how to use a search engine. Until the governments of the world agree to fund an INDEPENDENT study of the world's climate then may I suggest that the climate change advocates need to ask themselves a simple question. That is, should we spend billions, of whatever currency you prefer, on trying to prevent or capture carbon emissions, or should we let plants continue to do their job and spend the money on improving life for those with no reliable source of food, water or shelter?
"Generally find those obsessed with photography to be general life losers with nothing interesting of their own to talk about . . . "
Bit sweeping that one I think Jeebus.
Well what does that say about Steve Jobs you whingeing fanbois? Hehehehehe.
