They aren't punishing them, Apple knew the expected tax rates when they started doing business. The people setting the rates knew their deficit and what they needed to recoup. They didn't get what they expected from some people so they need to reassess it.It's like if there's a toll gate across a bridge that someone built. They (public or private body) invested the money to build it and want people to pay for its use. There's a footpath at the side of the toll gate and...
They'd still allow you to go to 1440p with 4K. The rMBP for example has a highest scale setting at 1920x1200 but renders at 2880x1800 and not 3840x2400. The iMac could be 4K and have the optimal resolution be 1080p but still scale higher to 1440p.I personally think 1440p makes UI elements too small on the 27", likewise 1080p on the 21.5". It doesn't matter though, whether they go with 4K or 5K, both will finally allow people to set the displays to more comfortable...
Hmm, he does look like Michael Keaton. I was thinking more the Joker:Perhaps the villain and the hero are not so...
I like the idea and I do think that's the best way to change other people's perception of it. Most of the women would probably want to avoid it seeming like they are promoting sharing explicit imagery of themselves but even that didn't affect Madonna more than 10 years ago ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sex_(book) ) - nobody really thinks any less of her for it. It needs a certain personality to pull something like that off though. At the very least, they shouldn't feel...
Half a bodybuilder anyway, the bodybuilder at the link said he was using half his strength. There was a followup bend done in the street, like it's a travelling act now. Look out David Blane or whoever is doing the street magic rounds these days: It looked fairly easy to bend if you hit the right points. I could see how an accidental hard impact at the right point could skew the device. Gradual bending might cause a warp for some people. Until there are lots of people...
I think it's the kind of vulnerability that comes close to what's being shown in the game Watch Dogs:Everything in the city runs on a central operating system ctOS so being able to exploit vulnerabilities offers a lot of options - unlocking cars, hacking phones, ATMs, doors, surveillance cameras, construction equipment, alarms, servers, laptops, power grids and so on using just a smartphone. The entire world runs on essentially Windows and Unix variants.The more that...
There's a solution to that problem that might benefit everyone.
Physics calculations are run on the CPU, the iPhone has a dual-core, the others tend to have quad-cores. If you have a racing game, your virtual car has to have speed, mass, collision calculations, direction vectors, rebound force, roll calculations and so on. The iPhone 6 CPU holds up pretty well in Geekbench though so it must be better at some kinds of calculations than others. There's an interesting article on the 3DMark site about...
I think most of the blame for linking to iCloud was the original uploader. When they uploaded it they described how they used iCloud logins. There's a pretty in-depth article about the events here:http://www.businessinsider.com/originalguy-the-icloud-hacker-who-leaked-naked-celebrity-photos-2014-9It says it was multiple people over a period of months. The mention of iCloud was in response to someone asking how to exploit that particular service. It says that about 30% of...
The code is setting the shell variable x to a function, it's just an empty one here, which is what the brackets are. The flaw is that it executes code that follows it rather than ignoring it or raising an error.I expect the reason nobody noticed it years ago is that very few people will assign functions to shell variables and if they did, they wouldn't write them wrongly on purpose. There was one guy assigned to look after the bash project and he might have been doing this...
