Keywords would be a good idea. I think they'd have to be linked though. So for example, someone could choose tags 'baking', 'cooking', 'flying'. However, flying on its own might bring up flight checkers so it would have to be linked to games so they'd need linked tags 'games'-'flying' and inverse tags for exclusion so 'games'-!'flying' (it would be inverted colors or something) would mean no flying games. If you didn't want to see kids games, you'd set 'games'-!'children'...
Here's the article without the pay wall: http://online.wsj.com/news/article_email/SB10001424052702303949704579461783150723874-lMyQjAxMTA0MDIwNTEyNDUyWj They mocked up the original iPhone using an old G3 to simulate the speed. This is also another example where Steve asked for innovative ideas from his staff. A lot of people have the notion that Steve himself came up with all the ideas but he acted as co-ordinator and overruled some of them. There are other examples of...
Two sensors doesn't require two lenses though, that would add more complexity and cost than needed as they'd have to ensure each pair of lenses was within a certain tolerance of the other and always focused the same way. It would be best to just reflect the light onto each sensor from a single lens setup.
I feel bad for HTC. They try so hard with the products and they just can't send the right message about why people should buy their products instead of Samsung's. HTC deserves to be where Samsung is now.It might help if they didn't make 22 different models of smartphone:http://www.htc.com/www/smartphones/That way they don't dilute the attention for their flagship models. Then they should actually promote the things they've done better with the flagship model.
I'm not seeing how virtual reality fits into social connection."Oculus has the chance to create the most social platform ever, and change the way we work, play and communicate."When someone wears the goggles, they can't even broadcast their face to the other person. You can't type either because you can't see the keys. Maybe the following video shows what they'll get to eventually (nsfw) but it's a while away:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFrkcCufwK4#t=105These purchases...
I don't think adding categories is going to help much because categories are intended to be a way of associating a singular definition with a group of items that a user already recognises. Adding new ones requires that users learn the new representations. It's also not always the case that users know what kind of app or category to look at, the motivation in discovery is just to find something appealing. Take a popular game like Limbo. You can add as many category labels...
That's what devices like the Kinect use:This would be a different sampling method as it projects pinpoints of evenly spaced infrared light. For chroma, it would be a flash that fills the scene and then the sensor would just figure out the colors either on its own or by also using a natural light sample in the calculation.Having depth capability would be extremely useful though for object detection and focusing.
It doesn't have the price point either. The Mac Pro entry point is 5x higher than the Mini so even if it sells the same unit volume, the revenue is much higher with the Pro as well as the margins.If the Mini is to get another update, they'd be best holding off for Haswell refresh in April. It probably won't be a huge update but it make sense to use the latest chips if the rest of the lineup will. If it's going to be killed off, they'll just keep selling it until the demand...
The other benefit would be faster HDR because they don't need multiple exposures. Once you have the chroma and luma separate, the luma can be adjusted in post-production. It could also allow for HDR video as it only needs one frame. Luma left, Chroma middle, combined right:The chroma sensor just needs to be sensitive enough to determine the correct color data. I wonder if it can do that kind of sampling by not relying solely on incoming light but by projecting a signal out...
It works because it taxes all transactions and there's no possibility of billions being hidden away. It also has the effect of compounding the percentage. If a single $100 amount gets exchanged 20 times between different people, then 1% becomes 1.01^20 = 22% but during each exchange, the transaction fee ($1) is negligible to the parties involved.This system would perfectly align the strength of a currency against the economic activity of the country. While it sounds crazy...
