I'll state the obvious and point out the obscene levels of "misuse" of phones enabled with a camera. It's a bit of a pain in the ass to get a data-only sim even in the US if you're from outside the US. Why Japan seems any different is probably a matter of perspective.
There should be some kind of building-code bylaw to not have all-glass facades at ground-level. For example http://metronews.ca/news/vancouver/374886/stolen-jeep-used-as-ram-in-metrotown-jewelry-store-robberies/, this mall also has an Apple store, but the store is on the upper level, so no smash-and-grab is possible. Yet the Jewelry stores on the lower level? They just rebuilt the damaged store AND then put the concrete pylons at the mall entrances that didn't previously...
It does seem like a lot of money to pay for a Brand. If it's a licensing thing, maybe there's more to it.As for 24/96 or 24/192, there is some significance from a mixing point of view, but like the upgrade from VHS (200 lines) to SVHS (400 lines) to SD (480i) to HD (720p) and beyond people don't know something is better until they experience it. If we paid as much attention to audio as we did to video, we would have a "HD" version of earbuds by now.Most headphones below...
Or you could just wait for the next AppleTV. Whenever that comes.The OP basically summarized that it's not particularly impressive. The lack of Amazon on the device is meaningless to anyone who doesn't live in the US. I know Hulu still isn't available outside the US, and the only three streaming video options that I know do work are Youtube and Netflix (because it works on the Nintendo consoles) and Crackle.US companies developing services and hardware that is useless...
It's not going to help anyone. I don't know of anyone using Chromecast.Here's what needs to happen:If I say "I want to watch X-men", I want the device to query Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Crackle, Crunchyroll, etc for all shows that are "x-men" and return that in an unified interface. The Xbox 360 kinda does that. Not very well though.Second I want a unified interface in which I can stop, play, skip, fast forward, rewind, record** and replay** anything that can be plugged into...
Won't happen, and the new MacPro is not the same type of desktop that the previous one was. The previous models were Xeon DP, the current ones are Socket 2011 which allows UP/DP/QP configurations, but I somehow doubt that Apple will make a DP configuration when the base model can already can scale from Quad-core to 12-core on the same socket.That said, I still think Apple should license one "clone" manufacturer to produce high-end workstation and servers that can be rack...
Just so the anti-apple people know: Amazon only streams video in the US Hulu can not be watched outside the US iTunes in Canada often doesn't have HD versions of content available in the US, or is several seasons behind. However, you can use American credit cards (eg gift cards) on the US iTunes store to watch content bought from the US outside the US. You can't do this with Amazon, Hulu, or even Netflix. If you want to see the content goldmine get cracked open, it has...
Not really.A point-and-shoot camera still has a better lens mechanism (sometimes offering optical zoom) that a iPhone/iPod/iPad device will always lack. Most cameraphones are good-enough for what most people would have had a 110 style camera for (and the same tradeoffs of much lower resolution than expensive (D)SLR's.) A lot of what you see in current PaS cameras is hand-me-downs from DSLR versions.Regardless if this patent is not an april fools day joke or is. A camera...
There is no point trying to correct data on Wikipedia because it is a mob mentality. To put it bluntly, it's difficult to challenge robots and paid "reputation" companies that exist entirely to scrub negative perception of their brands with people who actually care about factually reported data.Wikipedia is not a useful site, and hasn't been useful for more than 7 years. It is trying to be CNN when it's ultimately closer to 1000 monkeys writing Shakespeare.
I refused to buy a camera mobile phone (back before the iPhone was even released) until there was a comparable one to my digital still camera. So that meant looking for 5-6Mpixels. None of the iPhones when they came out had it. It wasn't until the iPhone 4 that something was comparable. Meanwhile I had bought the Nokia N95 which had a similar Mpixel sensor. Pictures taken on a mobile phone are horrible. Even the best quality pictures taken on an iPhone or iPad, pale in...
