It looks like they've got icons for a whole range of family setups: two men, two women, woman and man plus one or two kids with variants of girls and boys. There's not enough yet though, they need all the race variations in the family too with all the children potentially adopted.I wish they'd get someone better to draw these things, they look terrible.They can make some characters in a way that they can be male or female to cut down on the amount needing drawn.
The battery alone still doesn't let someone know where they are in the world. It would need GPS or maybe IP address plus battery data. For this to work, there would need to be- reliable filtering of battery usage by apps- a huge, regularly updated database of cell towers and their usage profiles varying with 3G/4G etc- continuous battery data samplingIt seems like a lot of hassle to get an estimated location. What could people even do with this unreliable location data...
SSD garbage collection is different from this and is built into a driver. It was Apple's kernel extension signing process that affected this because 3rd party TRIM apps change the binary code in Apple's bundled drivers to support non-Apple SSDs. Their signing process detects this change and prevents the driver loading at all. The garbage collection in SSDs is a similar principle in that it frees up unused memory so that it can be used again but this memory management is...
I can understand Scorsese and Stone but Spielberg? E.T, Schindler's List, Jaws, Jurassic Park, Close Encounters, Saving Private Ryan, Indiana Jones, Tintin, Minority Report etc.Neither do Coca-cola ads or the original Mac ads. Product ads are what Microsoft have been doing like 'it has a flimsy keyboard and is cheaper'. The iPad's benefit comes from the 'experience of the product' as they described in another ad.You say 'cinemas' plural. There was just a single major...
Cars also have specially built roads to keep them away from people, air space doesn't have this boundary. Then there's the insurance requirement:Drones need to be restricted to certain areas, require an operating license with training and insurance.
Intel has said that Skylake is coming in the 2nd half of 2015 and showed off working models at IDF 2014:I doubt Apple would use Broadwell H (if it even comes to market) for the MBP in Summer and then Skylake H for another model less than 3 months later, especially when Skylake comes with wireless charging and TB3.Intel's launch event will be August 15th:http://hexus.net/tech/news/cpu/80786-intel-skylake-s-desktop-cpus-expected-idf-2015-august/Skylake H is listed as having...
It's more that he's saying that dreaming about things isn't enough and that the focus on this aspect doesn't testify to the effort that goes into realising them. It follows on pretty well from Apple's 'your verse' campaign in that it promotes the notion of contributing - just take a step, make a brush stroke, film a scene, do something that sets you on the path.Yeah he makes violent movies. Goodfellas and Casino are two of the best mafia movies:I wish they made more movies...
Intel makes GPUs too (they have over 65% of the market now) but the high-end is pretty much AMD/NVidia. The failures are unpredictable but we don't know what the failure rates are overall. NVidia's financial report for 2014 says:"We recorded a net warranty charge of $193.9 million and $94.0 million during fiscal years 2011 and 2010, respectively, towards the repair and replacement of products arising from a weak die/packaging material set used in certain versions of our...
It looks like a GPU corruption. Apple setup a program for the 2011 27" models with the AMD 6970M:http://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT203787but I don't think there is one for the 2012 ones with the NVidia GPUs. Try booting up in safe mode by holding shift to clear out your driver caches, that will disable the GPU in that mode. If you still get the corruption after rebooting back into normal mode, you'll need to take it in for repair. They'll probably charge for the...
200 miles is fine.Tesla batteries have an 8 year warranty, unlimited mileage. Once you've done 80,000 miles in a normal car, it's pretty much done anyway. Batteries also apparently double in capacity every 10 years so by the time a replacement is needed, it could be half the size and weight.They'd need battery switching stations as well as emergency options in case the power ran out. They could always have a warning system that won't shut off and makes you drive to a...
