Which we've been able to do since the Nokia N95 in 2008 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyWVH6jkDHg , and more recently with the Nintendo 3DS (which came with a bunch of AR cards too.)But has there been a single thing developed that actually worked in AR? Nope. Part of the problem has always been being able to interact with that AR space. The N95 example, isn't a touch-screen device, so all you can do is wave the device around. The 3DS, likewise all you can do is wave it...
Ever work for a company that just gives you a job that they know is possible, but don't know the engineering requirements?"Port our (shovelware) game to iOS, Android, Blackberry, etc"So you as the developer get the lovely job of figuring out how to make it work on the lowest-common-denominator hardware. On iOS, you can usually just take advantage of the native API's (OpenGL/Metal) and target the phone or tablet with the same code, since the screen ppi is close enough to...
It likely is more representative of city vs rural. You'll likely also find the same red vs blue voting pattern correlation. Blue states have high urban population densities, while red states have low urban density. So the more area you have to spread a vote over, the more likely the state will remain red.So in the case of iPhone correlations, states like Washington and California can be excused outright because the companies that produce phones are in those states (Amazon...
IMO... This might be a prelude to Google rolling out Google Glasses 2.0, automated cars, and a few other services that need always-on data. Like if you think about it, the gordian knot in getting people to use these services is the constant worry about paying to use free services. Get rid of the mobile carrier from the decision, and people will be far far more willing to use services like Google Maps for more than just quick turn-by-turn instructions to their...
The media isn't quite as pedantic as the average nerd.A hologram, requires no headwear. We don't have the technology yet to record an image that can be played back in a holographic sense. MRI's take "slices" to produce a 3D image. What we see in "3D" films is just sterographic post-processing from a flat image. We do have light-field cameras now that record a 3D image without a needing two cameras.What is being described is Augmented Reality, which overlays 2D computer...
I imagine that scene from the simpsons singing the stonecutters song. http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/We_Do_%28The_Stonecutters%27_Song%29Anyway, I think it's mostly FUD when it comes to trying to paint the iPhone as easily spied on, when you have Linux nerds who willingly make their Android devices do this without the NSA twisting their arm.
In Canada we had the smartcard readers for like a decade before EMV actually came out, so a lot of that first generation equipment never got used. NFC Paypass/Paywave on the other hand the credit cards were available before the POS systems were, but only by about a year. There are still some places that have older equipment which are chip+pin only, but absolutely nobody uses the swipe card here.
You can use it pretty much everywhere that has PayPass. So basically most places outside the US, and only places inside the US that have replaced their credit card POS systems in the last 3 years.
Depending on the device architecture, but generally there is always a performance increase when software is run as 64-bit instead of 32-bit. I imagine Google's chrome dev's had it's arm twisted pretty hard, sticking to that "no web app would ever use 64bit" when that's factually wrong. Facebook and Twitter actually do make use of 64-bit, as webapps, because their "infinite" scrolling mechanic doesn't garbage-collect as you scroll. You might wonder what the point of running...
I think the implication is that there are not enough LTE parts vendors. Qualcomm basically owns enough patents in LTE to make it impossible to build LTE chips without licensing their patents, or straight out buying chips from them.Apple could, and probably should get all the licencing cheaper than buying the chips, and integrate it into the A9 or whatever they end up calling it, as that would reduce power requirements by not having power-sucking parts built on older...
