I would find it difficult to believe that anyone wants to be alone their entire life. I can understand being reconciled to choosing between being alone or being with someone you don't want to be with because your level of attractiveness or social standing might only allow you to partner with people you don't want to be with but there are biological forces that compel people to look for partners and they exist in everyone. You can choose not to eat food but your body will...
The Foundry also sells Nuke, which is developed by some of the team behind Shake. There's a video here from The Foundry on the Planet of the Apes compositing and it's clear to see how much work goes into just one part of one scene, it doesn't even cover asset creation:The CGI elements are rendered with Pixar's Renderman:http://www.artofvfx.com/?p=1558"Our fur and hair grooming system is called Barbershop, and it plugs into Maya and Renderman. It was written over the last...
Yeah but Jesus died young so he didn't suffer long periods of loneliness and he had all those followers to keep him company. There are religious people who go through their lives without having relationships, the exceptions are here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sexually_active_popesand they seem ok outwardly but it's not very healthy. Nobody automatically assumes the popes are gay of course.It's healthy to have friends and lovers. It's like Chrisann Brennan said,...
There's a profile here that was speculating about Tim taking over as CEO back in 2008:http://cnnfn.cnn.com/2008/11/09/technology/cook_apple.fortune/index2.htm"Though he's capable of mirth, Cook's default facial expression is a frown, and his humor is of the dry variety.Cook dresses casually in jeans, his graying hair cropped close in the style of Lance Armstrong, whom he idolizes.While a select group can claim to understand Cook at work, almost nobody claims to know much...
If you hold the alt-key before pressing the green button it should give you the old functionality.
I don't think people want to pay for just one source of content. Netflix already has Disney movies so Disney's own app wouldn't offer much more than that: http://dvd.netflix.com/SubGenreList/Disney/651 It would be nice if the streaming companies were truly global of course and that would be a benefit to a sole provider streaming via their own app.
I think the standalone iPod line is finished. It's at 2.7m units per quarter now for all models combined. When you consider that half are iPod Touches, this means there are 27 iPhones sold for every iPod Touch and this is while the iPod Touch starts at $199. People don't want standalone music players any more because it's just one more device to have to carry around. This price drop could be to clear out inventory before a transition to a new category in September.I reckon...
There's not really any reason to use phrases like 'outed' because there shouldn't be a stigma around this any more. People aren't outed as being straight after years of assuming they were gay. Randy Ubillos the FCP lead has his own (poorly designed) website about him and his partner: http://rickandrandy.com Ellen Page went to an event recently and announced she was gay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqJThFrFXh4 People have a right to privacy and if they don't want...
Sure but the reception was tested on those in the real world with negligible impact. I just don't see how the extra break helps the signal.I quite liked the design of the HTC One, which has similar splits but they put a plastic band round the rim and the splits are thinner. There's a video comparing the iPhone 6 mockup to the HTC One here:It's clear that the split lines in the mockups are not accurate and I actually think the iPhone 6 mockup looks nicer than those other...
The 5.5" is the iPad nano.
