It's still risky and it's not like you'd have a physical wallet with the exact amount for every transaction so there has to be a lot of back and forth using the computer to make the right paper wallet amount. There's also the chance of someone sneakily taking a picture of your codes. This happened with a TV show:http://www.businessinsider.com/bloomberg-matt-miller-bitcoin-gift-stolen-2013-12Legal currency is backed by the strength of the country's entire economy and the...
They only needed to go to 4K. This is just showing off. Nobody's even going to run these displays at 3200, the UI would be far too small on 27".
A lot of modern development is based around web programming and the iPhone was originally going to be web apps only. It needed performance and access to graphics frameworks though and C-based languages are the most popular but they are no good for rapid application development and that's what's needed these days. Turnaround times are more important than raw performance for most apps. For the ones that need the performance, they can do it the way they know how. Swift offers...
Nope, there's no need to do that. You can leave OS X on for months and it'll run fine. If you run out of RAM, reboots are a quick way to flush it all out but otherwise, it's not beneficial. Occasionally it's good to leave the machine turned on but not in use (display sleep but not full sleep) so that the SSD can run its idle garbage collection. OS X does some automated things overnight too.What issues were there?
The Crucial drive should be ok and is cheap. Someone here replaced their drive in a 2010 model:http://loneplacebo.com/macbook-pro-crucial-m500-ssd-upgrade/Samsung ones are reliable too but the 830 and 840 Pro are more expensive. The Samsung EVO is only a little more but is the TLC NAND. You may as well go with the best deal, which is the M500.You won't get the full speed of the drive as the machine only has SATA 2 but still 5x faster than the HDD and the other thing is you...
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.
