I am wondering if it has an addtional NFC security chip in it that is programable(Like an employee badge).   Most push button start systems have both the physical key to get into the car, but also a chip that works if you put it in close proximity to ignition button.   This way you can still start your car even if the battery is dead.   Just spitballing, it might not because that wouldn't help you get into the car, but could at least get it started if you were in it.   I...
 Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear in my original post, but I am trying to say I don't believe any of the BS when it comes to Sony.   They have publicly said they can't find anyone to release their movie, when they have their own means of releasing it to a wide audience that they have conveniently ignored.   They would have probably just taken a loss if it wasn't for the public backlash at the movie being pulled.  I don't support Sony in this, and I think they have committed a...
Sony is being cowardly.  They keep saying they have no means of distribution, but they have access to the playstation network.   Thats over 90 million devices worldwide, not even including Vita(which really doesn't up the count that much), and I am not including the PSN app, the video unlimited services, etc.  If they wanted this available to people that bad, they could have started with their own services.   I would love to see some company step up, pay Sony the costof...
 Two things.   These terminals aren't being installed by Apple.   Disney has been in the process of converting everything in the park to NFC, from speedpass to hotel rooms, everying is going to be stored in a wristband or some other device.    They are getting away from physical tickets.   The terminals they are putting in work with Apple Pay, google wallet, and any other mobile payment system based on the same NFC tech. Second, they are likely implementing this on...
The issue with your argument is that your confusing the retail price that Amazon was charging with the wholesale price they were paying.   Amazon was regularly paying 12-15 dollars per book, and discounting to 9.99.   Now they are charging 12-15 per book set by the publisher, and they take a 30% cut of the price.   So in many cases the authors are actually making less.  What the publishers were worried about was not author compensation, they were worried about the effect...
I think everyone is forgetting that cable companies already have a legal monopoly in most areas.   The only way a competitor can enter a comcast or time warner area(which may be the same company soon) is if they lay down fiber, which is what google is doing.   The problem with that is that cities have to be on board, and it requires a massive expenditure.   So what is actually happening is that the existing monopolies are looking to abuse there status by charging both the...
A few interesting features tacked on to a truly ugly UI design. Hate the black backround and the home screen has an absurd amountof wasted space. On a phone, the carousel UI dominates the screen, meaning I don't have quick access to anything without spinning the stuipd carousel(really hate that UI paradigm). Didn't show how notifications are handled or quick settings. Who is providing maps, as that is essential to any platform now. Just too many things that look like...
 There also used to be signs that also said "No Negro's". To me, if you want to pass a bill to allow the refusal of service, make the bigots wear their beliefs on their sleaves(or storefronts). Like the No shoes, no shirt, no service, let people in the community know just who you won't serve. At least be honest, don't let someone walk into the store with expectation of service and then say, "no, we don't serve your kind here". Let the world know of your bigoted...
The specs are nice, but the interface is still just terrible. I am assuming the low res icons will now look even worse when in the carousel on these HD screens. On the other hand, the "mayday" button, if it works as advertized, seems to be very cool idea. I am guessing that since they cater to a non enthusiast crowd, this will actually save them man hours over having tech support try to explain things over the phone.
 Well, BBC's Sherlock is on Netflix and a few odd Marvel movies, but it seems more and more its filled with B movies that were direct to video. I used to love my netflix account, but more and more I just watch stuff on Amazon prime or Hulu.
