Yeah, it means that you "don't have to lift a finger" to work (i.e. are wealthy) since it's difficult to do most jobs having long fingernails.Also come in handy for certain illicit activities which require enough free time and money to engage in on a regular basis... or just playing guitar.
While CPU usage is one factor, I'd like to see memory usage and overall browser stability comparisons as well.
Sure. However, companies that manufacture, sell, and provide support for computers do care when those same people who don't know/don't care are bringing their computers in for service/support due to problems (unknowingly) caused by Flash.Now, while you can say: "sure, but this isn't specific to Flash, it's true for all software people install", the fact is that Flash tends to be much more invisible to people than full-fledged applications. So it's very easy for someone...
I assume you mean Limbaugh and not the band. Unless there's something subliminal in their music which I'm missing... (I'm Canadian, so the band is much more visible here than Limbaugh) But yeah, I've always felt that classes in basic logic and analytical skills should added to the general curriculum in schools (starting around age 10 or so). Good to hear that you're making your kids aware.
I remember coming to the same realization when I was quite young and one of my relatives was really into Jimmy Swaggart. I'd try to find the point of what he was talking about, but there wasn't one. Just meaningless banter expressed with great enthusiasm and oratory skill. After I understood that, I started to have more fun analyzing the techniques he was using to hypnotize people. So I think you can trace the origins of this app back even further with spiritual...
I'm thinking Blackberry OS around 3 years ago. Wasn't the Blackberry dev kit very expensive and limited in availability (much like game console dev kits)?And I definitely remember hearing from other smartphone users over the years that major OS updates often required newer hardware. Or, at the very least, the older hardware couldn't take advantage of the newer OS features.Aside from Bluetooth, the original iPhone supports pretty much every feature of the latest iPhone OS.
The app store is mainly about Apple building a platform. So it's no surprise that they are trying to run it at break even. If they made the entry-point for iPhone OS development too high, it would severely limit it's growth as a platform. Consider that most "smart phones" (for lack of a better term) which came before the iPhone were closed systems. Typically running a custom-developed operating system with very limited support for 3rd parties to create software for...
Yes! The direction of moving to all applications needing to be signed and approved by the platform maker is a scary one. Think about these scenarios:Platform maker is partnered with a large entertainment company - thus you can't create an application which plays DRM-free audio/videoPlatform maker is partnered with a large cellular service provider - thus you can't create a VoIP application which works over any networkPlatform maker partnered with a large TV service...
And reading up about how to actually do the workaround, then taking the time to do it. The one other thing I've mentioned in this forum before is that, if a component in your Hackintosh fails, then you'll need to deal with the tech support for the manufacturer directly, file an RMA case, ship the component back on your own dime, then wait 4-8 weeks for a replacement. As compared to taking your Mac down to your local Apple Store and having the component replaced for you on...
Exactly! I think Moto's ad is effective, but in the wrong demographic. People who buy into the marketing line that personal appeal is directly tied to the aesthetics of the things they own generally aren't in the income bracket to be able to afford high-end devices requiring expensive service plans (i.e. good analytical skills generally go hand-in-hand with higher salaries -- nepotism and lineage aside).
