That's because they're not supposed to. That's not technically their responsibility. A retailer has no way of verifying your ID, especially since ID fraud is so rampant in the US.Anyone that works for ANY retail place knows this. Banks will ask to see your drivers license before letting you use your ATM card at a bank clerk, but the ATM doesn't need it. The only requirement for a swipe card is that it's signed. THAT'S IT. Not signed, not allowed to be used. Writing "CHECK...
That's actually wrong.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bank_card_numberEach bank issuer is 6 digits, So Final would use the same first 6 digits on all cards. Then there is the check digit and CCV which aren't "part of the card number" but are otherwise used as well.So you really only have 10^9 numbers, per bank, that can be used, before they get recycled. That said, there is nothing stopping a bank from having additional number sequences, so really you have 10^14 potentially...
That's always a context problem.When someone says what Jobs said there, that's in the context of "these people suck or fail at developing this product, let's do it better"There's not a lot of things out there that are whole-cloth original. Look at all the copy-cat FPS games, MMORPG's, and sports games. Strip these games of the storyline, and they're all the same game.When was the last time any game did any thing innovative? Minecraft? No Minecraft was actually predated by...
No, that's because Android software is crippled. Even software developed using Unity will always run slower on Android because developers don't convert the textures to Mali or Adreno formats, they just leave them as PowerVR. This means the CPU has to convert the textures on the fly. Sure you can run everything, but it will be a far inferior performance compared to the iPhone version.
Ehhh no. I think the "larger size" is a step backwards in durability, but only because of the larger surface area = larger people using it = larger butts sitting on it. Someone that's not an idiot will put the phone in their coat or purse in a pocket that has nothing in it to scratch it, or put the phone in a "sock" type of wrapper to prevent debris in the pocket from gumming up the buttons and lighting connector.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lBUJcD6Ws6sWill it Blend?The...
Think about games made for the SNES (which had a CPU slower than a 8088) and compare it to the Sega Genesis, TG16, various arcade games, and then look at the DOS/MAC/Amiga games of the day.My favorite reference game is "Lemmings"SNES version: Voices, full audio, play with a controllerAmiga version: Comparable to the SNES version including the two player mode.PC version: Adlib sound, single player, higher resolution, 16-color only.A few other examples:"The Simpsons" Arcade...
John Donahoe was also responsible for the huge rampup of outsourcing to the Philipines, so if you're wondering why service has been going down hill, that's it. The company was fine under Meg, and the Paypal integration was pushed even tighter under Meg. So splitting eBay and Paypal is going to be extremely damaging to both parts of the company. eBay will want in on that Apple Pay system, and Paypal wants to get more into Steam and various other online game payments.
Women's pants often only have "decorative pockets", even some cargo pants. If you can fit a phone into one, you'll certainly damage the phone, I don't care how bendable it's supposed to be.Men's pants have real pockets, but the inside of the pants usually just let the pocket hang out, so it will repeatedly get metal fatigue stress as you repeatedly bump it around while walking. Worse if you put it in the rear pockets, where sitting on it is guaranteed to damage it. When...
Take a look at "will it blend" for the iPad, the guy was able to bend the non-Apple tablets easier, where as the Apple iPad he had to apply a lot more force to.The iPhone is the same general problem, the more surface area, the easier it is to bend and break. I don't see this as a failure on Apple's part, as it's clearly not a quality control problem, just a people-being-stupid problem.
So they can take 4 times as long to charge and waste twice as much energy? No thanks.I'm fine with having an alternative charging system (eg for hotels and airports) but at home I don't want to be constantly radiated by the power required to charge a computer when it will spend 99% of the time spent plugged in anyway.
