I doubt the evolutionary process has an awareness at that level to make those changes. There's obviously adaptation to the surrounding environment over a long period of time but I'd say sexuality is more down to odds. With billions of people mixing genes with all sorts of varying conditions, it will lead to variations in sexual attraction with the dominant attraction being the one that favors reproduction. It occurs in the animal kingdom (of which humans are just another...
Today the Frostbite developers said they were experimenting with Battlefield 4 on iOS because of the improvements Metal offers: http://www.frostbite.com/connect/#frostbite-tech-demo-battlefield-4-on-ios There's no animated demo to see, just screenshots. "to see exactly how far we could take the engine on mobile we set ourselves up for a real challenge: getting selected parts of the Battlefield 4 – truly a visually demanding game – running on iOS! I want to stress that...
There's no reason to limit it to male homosexuality. Male and female homosexuality don't serve much purpose as far as evolution goes because children only get the genes from a single mother and father but a lot of things don't serve an evolutionary purpose and aren't defects and it's not like they can't conceive at all. They can still pass their genes down, just not mixed with their partner's genes.If you reduce the purpose of life to survival of the species then you can...
Yeah that would be an option for current Macs - 3rd party 5K should work ok. I think it's just 2 tiles over 2 ports.http://www.techradar.com/news/computing-components/peripherals/dell-s-new-27-inch-5k-monitor-packs-as-much-details-as-7-monitors-1264376"Dell engineers have managed this feat by joining two 2560 x 2880 pixels tiles to deliver a 5120 x 2880 pixel resolution"Each port can handle 3840x2160 so that should work but it might need some software update to do it.The...
The MBP is a good option to choose instead of a mini but laptop GPUs are not great for gaming and you get more fan noise. You can compare Iris, iris Pro and a 780M here (the Mac Pro D300 will be close to the 780M and you can potentially use both D300s but not always):http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Iris-Graphics-5100.91977.0.htmlhttp://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Iris-Pro-Graphics-5200.90965.0.htmlhttp://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-780M.88993.0.htmlThe Mac...
That's why Apple can't drop the iPad mini, it's to keep them hidden behind larger competing tablets where people don't want to be seen using them. CNN said it wasn't product placement as such but the reason they give is classic Microsoft: http://www.cnet.com/uk/news/cnn-election-commentators-used-microsoft-surface-as-kickstand-for-their-ipads/ "CNN's chief synergizer, Matt Dornic, explained to me that the Surfaces were there to help connect with CNN's "Magic Wall."...
That's not an issue about gay vs straight but male vs female, gay men could similarly be subjected to domestic abuse so it's men standing up for their fellow men. But you still wouldn't say you're 'proud to be straight' in that context, nor even 'proud to be male' because nobody says you should be ashamed to be male. It shows a double standard clearly, like if Jay-Z gets assaulted by his sister-in-law in an elevator it's a...
The Swatch Groups owns multiple Swiss brands including Tissot and Omega and their financials are here:http://www.swatchgroup.com/en/investor_relations/annual_and_half_year_reports/annual_report_2013Combined income is ~$9b with ~23% net profit margin (close to Apple's net margin). The whole Swiss market is around $54b so Swatch represents a large portion. I didn't know Seiko was the same company as Epson who make the printers. Their financials are here but it looks like...
Here's an article that highlights the uselessness of internet surveys: http://www.theverge.com/2014/11/3/7151789/christian-bale-cant-play-steve-jobs-here-are-8-people-who-can You might think that the black and female actors suggested to play Steve Jobs are in there for a joke but the real joke is the poll results. Out of over 16,000 votes, Kanye West was the favorite. More than 1100 picked Meryl Streep.
The gold one looks the nicest IMO but not $5k nice. If the value of the parts its made from is around that value then as long as the materials retain that, so would the overall watch and someone would buy it worst case just to melt it down. But, a price like that means a very limited audience. The same can be said of other watches, why spend $6.5k on this stainless steel...
