There would be a stage beyond which you wouldn't recognize the creatures as human but there wouldn't be a well-defined cut-off point. You can see this process happen today:The early stages of the evolving human form are unrecognizable. There have been fossils found that date back a while:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homo_habilishttp://www.earthmagazine.org/article/move-over-homo-habilis-early-human-evolution-remapped"Until now, fossils dated to about 1.9 million years ago,...
55 million users is small relative to the likes of Youtube that boasts 1 billion users: http://uk.reuters.com/article/2013/03/21/us-youtube-users-idUSBRE92K03O20130321 but they can expand twitch to become a Youtube rival if they wanted to. They could potentially use it for a kind of Facetime service to rival Google Hangouts, I think twitch has been used for live conferencing but game related. They can also advertise Amazon content more e.g sell games to gamers. Some of...
That's the concern I'd have. It's the smartphone manufacturers that have to implement and manage this and if someone compromises their system, they can potentially lock hundreds of millions of devices, which could easily cause a few deaths. There was a scenario showing how devastating remote controls can be:http://www.wired.com/2012/08/apple-amazon-mat-honan-hacking/all/They even managed to remote wipe his Mac, which lost a year of data including all the photos of his...
Intel will be bringing new Haswell Xeon processors out next month with DDR4 support:http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2462348,00.aspThere are new AMD GPUs too with up to 16GB of video memory:http://www.fireprographics.com/ws/products/w9100/index.aspIf they have better SSD densities, I'd expect they'll come along in September too.I have a feeling 3rd parties will find it hard to come up with an SSD for Apple's PCIe slot. OWC did an interesting test with the Mac Pro SSD...
Retweeted. 😉Some of them are pretty funny:http://secretsonsecret.tumblr.comThe irony that they use social media to criticize social media. Wait, are forums a form of social media? Nah.
For bootable backups, Carbon Copy Cloner is more customizable than TimeMachine, it doesn't cost a lot and you should be able to use one license for all the machines:https://www.bombich.comTime Machine has issues with large files because it keeps trying to back them up and version them so people have found that things like virtual machine drives that change every time you open them keep getting backed up and using up space on external drives. The good thing about Time...
1GB of RAM isn't a very large amount to have for a modern OS. It only has 32MB listed free there. When you run out of RAM, it will start moving data on and off of the hard drive, which is very slow. It's also a 7 year old machine and hard drives only have an average 5-6 year lifespan. You are only using about 100GB on the internal which is good so try to make sure that's backed up in case it's failing.You can get a 4GB memory upgrade...
The battery prices are here:http://support.apple.com/kb/index?page=servicefaq&geo=united_states&product=MacnotebooksA Macbook Air should be $129 plus tax but they might add on a service charge for checking out what's wrong with it.
They have room to throw it out in favor of a 15" Retina Air. The low-powered Broadwell parts are rumored to have a 2x improvement in performance per watt so they can cut the power draw in half. This will allow them to make a fanless design that is very thin. Combine it with much slimmer USB 3 type c ports and they can make a super slim design with a smaller battery.
Apple could donate $70-90b and drain all Google's assets, bankrupting them and Apple would have change left over.I think it would have been better if charities came together for these events and shared the cash around. The people taking part are mostly doing it because of the appeal of the ice bucket but realistically, every charity can't come up with their own viral nomination game. I think each charity should be clearer on their needs for operating and chances of...
