When you spend it, you still have to transfer it to a digital wallet. The paper can get damaged too or not print out properly. Storing the coins with an online service is obviously risky as the many hacks have demonstrated including this one a couple of months ago:http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/mar/04/bitcoin-bank-flexcoin-closes-after-hack-attack"A bitcoin bank has been forced to close after hackers stole 896 bitcoin, worth £365,000"There is a place for...
It's partly a financial thing as well as technical. They mention it in their SEC filings. If they keep giving free software updates, they have to account for those as costs against the older models. They mention that they typically aim for 2-4 years of software support. This is clearly different from the Mac side at the moment but they'd actually have to manually prevent OS X running on hardware capable of it, which they can't feasibly do without a PR backlash."In 2013,...
Try booting in safe mode holding shift at startup and see if it still does it there. Safe mode will flush out your caches and OS X will rebuild them when you reboot again.
It looks like a very neat idea. They use isometric projection so that when objects are rotated, they connect in different ways. The popular game Fez does something similar but is just flat on and not as nice graphically. Monument Valley has done pretty well sales-wise:http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/may/14/monument-valley-android-game-sales"At £2.49, that means £1.24m of gross revenues on Apple's App Store in just over a month, with just over £871k going back to...
Finally, 7 years after the original iPhone. These things should have been implemented years ago so nobody would have any excuses to use Flash or Silverlight for DRM video.
These guys?As people get older, it tends to be harder to learn new things so the resistance to new things is understandable but if there's a better way forward, it's time to make the shift. The following point mentioned earlier might harm adoption:"You cannot import C++ code directly into Swift. Instead, create an Objective-C or C wrapper for C++ code."For heavy C++ codebases, people might think if they have to make wrappers for the C++ anyway, they'd be as well sticking...
I thought I'd read somewhere that 1024 had been the original but no, Threes was the first one:http://www.ibtimes.com/what-2048-convoluted-origin-threes-1024-game-clone-topping-app-store-charts-1568533It's a shame Apple doesn't enforce some anti-copying measures in the App Store. They know the publish dates of the apps so they can see which ones are derivatives. They don't necessarily have to ban them but either take a portion of revenue to give to the original or just...
If they are encrypted, they don't spin down for some reason but it could also be down to the drive models not responding properly to the eject. OS X should sleep the drive automatically after a certain amount of idle time though and you can set this yourself in the terminal:sudo pmset -a disksleep 1This sets the drive spin down to the lowest setting of 1 minute - in system prefs > energy saver, the checkbox to sleep the drives sets this but the default is 10 minutes I...
2048 is based on someone else's app 1024 though:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.veewo.a1024http://www.veewo.combut then you can see how many apps veewo has copied too. The App Store is full of these clones. Originality is hard, milking someone else's original idea is much easier.
I don't think so. C# and .Net have shown how there can be wide adoption of a new language if it improves developer productivity:http://www.computerworld.com.au/article/261958/a-z_programming_languages_c_/?Most people were familiar with C, C++, Java, Python before Objective-C arrived and it was a language nobody wanted to learn and many didn't. People took ages to port Carbon code to Cocoa, even Apple with FCP. 3rd party SDKs for making games bypass it - Unreal, Unity,...
