Companies could make promotional faces like have a countdown to a particular event e.g a Batman v Superman face with a timer until the launch and when the timer is done, the face can link to places to go see the movie. Charities can have watch faces that people enable for a given day like Breast Cancer Awareness and they can even have codes on them for other people to donate, which they might do via ´ú┐Pay and they can get some kind of reward for getting donations. For teen...
Subsidies/monthly payments make the standalone price of the phones less important. It looks like a lot of effort has gone into the watch faces but the end result is the 9 faces shown here:https://www.apple.com/watch/timekeeping/vs over 5,000 on other smartwatches:http://androidwatchface.com/faces?showorder=4&page=1The thousands aren't nearly as polished but they give people the ability to adjust the face to their own personal style or even mood. The Mickey Mouse face is...
There's another video here: It looks like gold when they take it out the box because of the table.
The Verge was founded by some editors from Engadget who seemed quite pro-Apple. They left because AOL bought it out and was pushing for content to be made more profitable:http://www.theguardian.com/technology/blog/2011/mar/13/engadget-editors-leavingSo if they could sell ads for Microsoft Surface, they might put up an article about it. Some of those people left The Verge but I don't think for the same reasons. It's getting harder to tell what articles are intended for...
That statement comes without any input from the workers. What is likely is that they consider it to be a lesser of two evils - being destitute vs overworked. One of the links above gives input from an undercover worker:"Another reporter, whose longest shift was 16 hours, said: "Every time I got back to the dormitories, I wouldn't want to move."Even if I was hungry I wouldn't want to get up to eat. I just wanted to lie down and rest. I was unable to sleep at night because...
The debate about Foxconn's evilness has nothing to do with literacy, which is someone's ability to read and write. Everybody can only base their viewpoints on reports that come from news sources or their own first-hand accounts. The only accurate opinions would be from people who have either worked there or visited there but as Mike Daisy demonstrated, people can lie about that. There are two reports here and the BBC one has a...
That's a bit like saying will it suffer the same fate as USB A. USB A connectors will eventually no longer be used. Firewire is a protocol that works over Thunderbolt and so does the USB protocol. Thunderbolt is just merging PCIe (multi-protocol) and Displayport. USB C is merging USB (single protocol) and allows Displayport and other formats over an alt mode. If USB C can allow PCIe over the alt-mode then it can replace TB.Intel originally wanted to use USB for TB but they...
If that's true then the posts can still be pointed out but it depends on what's being attacked. It's insults directed at forum members that are not allowed. You can attack ideas, institutions, people outside the forum.Indirect insults aren't as bad as direct but you can follow it logically:ad hom would be saying a forum member = illiterateif you say holding opinion = illiterateand a forum member = holding opinionthen forum member = illiterate, which is the above ad hom but...
You'd be better with just a USB drive. 500GB SSDs are quite cheap now:http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-2-5-Inch-Internal-MZ-75E500B-AM/dp/B00OBRE5UEhttp://www.amazon.com/Crucial-BX100-500GB-Internal-Solid/dp/B00RQA6M5YThen put one of those in a USB 3 enclosure:http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-BX100-500GB-Internal-Solid/dp/B00RQA6M5Y
It's Disney this time remember, they have to pay off the billions they gave to Lucas to own the franchise.
