More specificly interior-GPS, and potentially autonomous vehicle mapping. Right now Google has to stick 200K worth of LIDAR equipment to their cars. Imagine doing the same thing accurately with CMOS cameras and IR, and you have something (which is how Kinect does it.)As for practicality. As a game thing, the Kinect has been a flop for everything except motion-rhythm games(DDR, ParaPara, Pump It Up, and such,) and mandating the accessory on the Xbox One basically doomed the...
Just so you know, the reason people fall for these, is that they aren't expecting it. Your average person spends maybe 3 seconds reading an email, not scrutinizing it. This is is why these things still exist. It's why SPAM email still exists. That 0.01% of people who didn't pay attention is enough reason for them to keep doing it.As for how Android devices are getting infected. The ad networks are the primary vector. Windows users who aren't paying attention accidentally...
Unreleased item is expected to take longer to ship... and people are surprised by this? Maybe the AAPL bears, but that has never actually stopped an item from being released. Please wake me up when Apple actually cancels an item that has actually been announced before it ships.The thing is, AAPL used to do this earnings-pop thing and then everyone had a heart attack when Steve Jobs died and it looked like half of the EU was going to go bankrupt. Those are external...
If they give the community too much leverage, it will become a mess like Javascript as it goes form being elegant to "this isn't C++ enough, let's make it harder to use so no newbies will not want to use it" that has happened to Javascript, Perl, and PHPI prefer C, there's nothing terribly wrong with OBJC, or C++, but I find there is a lot of "OOP for the sake of OOP" and not OOP because it makes sense in many projects. This is why you see frameworks layered upon...
At 600-900$ a pop, I doubt it, but then again seeing all the 6-12 year olds in my family have an iPad made me wonder if they get more value out of having separate ones for each kid.I think the video is missing the point of a tablet, or any other entertainment device, in that you can only realistically watch one thing at a time, and that doesn't represent multitasking. The Microsoft ad using video chat and "let me show you something" is more representative of something you...
Hardware patents are "less evil" when it only covers uniqueness of a product, and doesn't prevent a standard from being established. Many of the reasons patents get a bad rap are regarding bad-faith patents (almost entirely dealing with software algorithms and not uniqueness.) For example, the LZW algorithm AFTER it had widespread use in the gif file format. There is no way to re-implement a mathematical algorithm without remaining compatible with other versions of it....
That's because Samsung is being reactive, and tends to never actually know which direction Apple is going when they are unable to peek at the parts in-house. Even then, they have no idea what to make of things. Apple recently switched to 64bit, but not quad-core CPU. Samsung went to quadcore but stayed 32bit... because Android isn't 64bit. If you casually look around news sites, Android is "moving to 64bit by christmas" . Know what that means? More fragmentation.If we use...
I use my Wii U for both Netflix and HTML5 development. It's HTML5 web browser is artificially limited, making it pretty darn hard to make javascript games work on it. (It's not as weak as the 3DS browser, but both are too weak that they tend to die when you run a javascript benchmark or various feature tests from Cocos2d/easelJS.)I don't watch Netflix on my windows computers because it's a nuisance to get the the streaming to work. I was previously using the Xbox 360 S...
Companies won't admit to wrong-doing if it's a third party. Especially if they are making money off of it. Premium Text Message fraud? Oh the customer was an idiot. Freemium in-app purchase fraud? Oh the customer was an idiot. You can also put "blame a kid" in there. One place I worked for, customers routinely pulled the "blame a kid" excuse because they or their kid put their cell phone number into one of those "text ##### to win a (item)" scams. I can't believe how...
I can still use my 2006 Macmini. I bought it when I had just moved to a new city and the laptop I was using was only 2 years old. The laptop now? recycled it 2 years ago as it no longer works at all.Sales/Marketing often don't consider that most people are still using what they have because they haven't been forced to replace it. Nearly all Windows XP devices are still usable, but they would be better off replacing them with new devices if they saw the energy savings...
