You can use that to justify any insult e.g anyone who thinks [insert opinion] is a moron. You are insulting people who step up to take an opposing view from the one you have.People who are perfectly literate or not on the left can hold the same viewpoint - everybody gets limited information to form their viewpoints - and there's no possible way that you can assess everyone's literacy or political leanings from the opinion they hold. You did say the view is mostly held by...
I think it's important to distinguish between screen resolution and content resolution. Screen resolution can be gigapixels and content can remain megapixels and the display would simply interpolate between the data points.http://wolfcrow.com/blog/notes-by-dr-optoglass-the-resolution-of-the-human-eye/"4K comes very close to what the human eye can fully resolve in a cinema screen at average viewing distances. Obviously, many people sit in the front row, and they’d...
They might not be ready yet:http://io9.com/is-disney-really-releasing-the-unaltered-star-wars-tril-1622812966"According to our sources, Disney has plans to release the original cut of the Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray. Our sources indicate that the project has been under way for quite some time, but it's been challenging because of some damage to the original negatives they are utilizing. The goal is to release A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of Jedi in their...
Entry laptops have been lowering heat output more and more. This was the last step. If they'd just added a Retina display to the Macbook Air, some people would have said 'is that it, this should have been done ages ago' and it would get another update to go fanless anyway.The 12" MB is also 1/3 lighter than the 13" Air despite having a laminated glass display vs plastic. It has the Force Touch trackpad.There will be a Skylake update, likely before the end of this year,...
It is, they have agreements with partners to promote content and they promote their own content ahead of others:http://ir.netflix.com/long-term-view.cfm"By personalizing promotion of the right content to the right member, we have a large opportunity to promote our original content, one that’s effectively unlimited in duration. Long after the premiere of House of Cards, large numbers of members are just starting the series each week. The improved economics from full season,...
When you align someone's opinion with an insult, that's attacking the person holding that viewpoint. Someone could easily switch it around and say 'mostly illiterates on the right think Foxconn isn't an evil soulless megacorp', that would also be attacking the people holding the opinion. It's also making it unnecessarily political, most of Apple's employees would be on the left so it's really saying more about your own opinion of people on the left. You should attack the...
If the watch does eventually get big enough to take over from the smartphone, the precursor would be the iPhone. It wouldn't be running the Watch OS in which case the current watch being developed would have been an irrelevant intermediate step because it's going to eventually run iOS.A holographic display would run the full iOS, watch OS would be discontinued and this setup would replace iPhones, iPads and maybe even TVs and computer monitors. I don't think people are...
Oh you just want to install directly from a Windows 7 DVD onto a blank SSD in the Mac. There's a guide here that describes what you already seem to have tried:http://derekhat.com/install-vista-on-a-macbook-without-bootcamp/If you put the hybrid drive back in and boot from it, I take it the SSDs must be mounting inside Windows 7 over USB in an enclosure? If so, another thing you can try is using a Windows cloner:http://www.symantec.com/ghost-solution-suite/That would just...
It looks like 8K will need Displayport 1.4: http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/199128-vesa-steams-ahead-with-displayport-1-4a-allows-for-8k-scaling 8K would be supported on 1.3 but according to Anandtech, they'd be downgrading color data: http://www.anandtech.com/show/8533/vesa-releases-displayport-13-standard-50-more-bandwidth-new-features DP 1.4 includes some lossless...
You recently described a 1.5" diameter watch as "MONSTEROUSLY LARGE and CLOWNISH". The size values Apple uses for the watch are the heights of the watch faces too (38mm/1.5" and 42mm/1.65"). The display diagonals on each are roughly 1.36" and 1.56". The Galaxy Gear S is 2":Even at that size, you saw in the video of it how small everything was on-screen. They've sold 1.2m units of the whole range so some people must be walking round with those. The earlier iPhones were only...
