I wish US regulators had the balls of the UK/EU/AUS regulators... AT&T goes around calling hspa+ "4g" even though the engineering bodies that defined 3g all classify HSPA+ as a 3g technology...Hell, they sell the iphone as 4G now! It should be criminal but in the USA, well, its not.
As a student on their Indy campus I hope not!! I dont want my books locked to one platform, if thety have to be digital, I want it on everything, my Windows laptop, my macbook, my iPad, my android/windows phone 7 device and so on, hell even Linux! I am all about moving forward, just not a fan of buying a $600 dongle to do it.
This seems to be a bigger rollout than they are saying, any word on when the next few cities in this round are coming, like Lafayette In? per this artical, Purdue should be getting it too - Why would they give it to IU first? BOOOO!!! All the engineers are at Purdue, IU all about med and law LOL!!! http://www.jconline.com/article/2012...-T-4G-LTE-grid
What I dont and never have understood, is why Math textbooks ever need upadting - in the highest reaches of math where new discoveries may be occuring sure, but has High School Algebra 2 changed enough to requier a new text every couple years? and at the university level, it seems like the basic math books change every term! its a total scam, why havnt professors gotten together and written a sort of definitive text that could be sold for pennies on the dollar of text...
I dont see how this is anything but good news, the people that I know that work part time, or did at some point in their lives, did so cause they couldnt find full time work, so going from 16 to 24 hours a week will be great for them, that amount of money can in many cases be the differance between making rent or not.
have you USED windows phone 7.5? it was good enough to get me to give up iPhone, and I was there in 2007 baby! The apps are lacking, but that will come. Android is a hot mess, and Apple iOS is sitting on their success of 2007-2009, not innovating a bit, its like the Mac in the early 90s, it started as teh king of the hill, but Amega, BeOS, Windows, OS/2 and such were competing, and Apple just sat smugly until Windows 95 came out and wiped the floor with Macs of the...
First let me say that Windows Phone 7 is a good OS, in many ways it appears superior to iOS, and I have had the ability to hold and use a production Lumia 900 and it is fantastic, far more comfortable in my huge hands than the dainty little iPhone, but that said, this is embarrassing, MS/Nokia have a great product, they dont need to waste peoples time telling them why "apple sucks" particularly on a 2 year old flaw that was addressed in manufacturing revisions! Nokia and...
My contacts are in three places, iphone, itunes and icloud - I want to get them uot, in batch, not 1-by-1 and get them into a CSV for two reasons, one immediate desire to import them into a new software tool I want to play with, and secondly, overall, I just want my contacts in a plain non proprietary format and I am frightened over all that my data is so locked down, I dont want one fucking vcard for every single contact!
am I the only one a little sad about this sort of thing? I look at my book shelf and see a great thing, astheticly brautiful and eligant, and the books are usefull - you can read them without logging in and getting DRM approval, you can rely on them to bne there and not just randomly disappear when tehre is a copyright dispute (a la Orwell's "1984" on Kindle a while back) and most importantly, the right of first sale, that is it is mine, I can let you borrow it, I can give...
Sure, of course a percentage of free beta dlers are not gonna buy, thats the point, its a free test drive for the new customers and a preview of things to come for long time users who can give educated real world feedback. Ppl who have never used photoshop may download this and go buy essencials, or maybe, just maybe, someone with a couple grand in a nice Pro-Sumer SLR camera, flash cards, lenses and stuff as a hobby may see some value in the full PS CS 6 application and...
