Homosexuality hasn't been produced by unnatural means, it's not man-made or artificial. Unattractiveness, infertility and so on can affect reproduction but nobody would say they are unnatural.To use the label 'defect' implies that the people with the 'defect' suffer because of it. The only suffering that people have is due to prejudice. Remove that and they live perfectly happy lives. What is defective about Tim Cook? By any measure, he comes across like one of the nicest...
Those prices look way off to me. Why would a leather band be $450 more than a standard buckle? Leather doesn't cost anywhere near that much. When the Watch was announced, I assumed the steel one would be the base model because it didn't have a specific demographic like the sport one but it has sapphire on it. Even so, I would assume a small premium on top of the sport model e.g:Sport - $349, ion-X glass, aluminiumSteel - $499-599, sapphire, stainless steelI doubt the...
The capacitive display is an example of hardware having a direct digital mapping, the crown is probably the only new hardware control like this Apple has added since then. The crown in a standard watch is physically connected to the clock hands so there's a direct relationship between action and reaction. It'll be harder to keep it consistent from one scenario to another - zooming a map, scrolling a page, adjusting a dial. They are having to balance the UI smoothness with...
You both seem to have a similar view but those statements are contradictory. You define something being natural as what can be observed occurring without human influence but, as humans, we can choose not to do everything that can be observed or is instinctive. There are a lot of natural events that humans find unacceptable such as mothers killing and eating their weakest offspring, animals do this frequently:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filial_cannibalismIt can happen with...
Apple's design with the crown wouldn't fit well with a round watch. They purposely offset it from the center so that it wouldn't seem like a standard crown on a watch. On a round design, it would have to go at the side and it's huge.The smartwatch market is a bit strange just now. The 2nd best selling smartwatch looks like this (Pebble):Quite a few people must be buying the Steel model in the 2nd image as their ASP is around $150.The best-selling one is this (Galaxy...
That's just the Moto 360, the LG G Watch and Huawei are completely round.The sizes can be adjusted and the content would be formatted for the round display. Like I said, the text area is about 75% of the square one but you get the extra area for controls and padding. The Watch is designed for notifications so there won't be a lot of text. I don't even think you'll be able to read many emails on it - the Apple Watch only shows about 12 words at a time. Are people going to...
The following page summarizes the findings:http://www.frc.org/issuebrief/homosexual-parent-study-summary-of-findingsThe sample size was about 3000 people. A lot of the statements won't be directly related to the parenting - it's a study of correlation, not causation. Further down it mentions the criticisms including comparing unstable family situations with stable ones but it says that this is because "of the 248 children with homosexual parents who were surveyed, only two...
It doesn't look like his custom-made one, which looks like this:So he has at least two watches.
Well spotted, the person this story comes from is involved with two competing solutions:https://www.simplytapp.comhttps://www.modopayments.comIt looks like he's defending Apple Pay here:http://www.droplabs.co/?p=1157"Apple Pay is not secure: Laughable and pure FUD."but definitely suspect given his involvement with competitors.
The circle has a square area inside it for displaying text blocks. The available space on a similarly sized round watch for the main body text would be about 75% of the square one and the remaining segments would be used for status info to make up the difference:In some ways, that would be functionally better because it means that while scrolling vertically, your finger wouldn't come close to hitting the back button so you can swipe all the way up the watch face whereas on...
