All time travel representations are going to have continuity problems, even Back to the Future:http://www.denofgeek.com/movies/16532/the-plot-holes-and-paradoxes-of-the-back-to-the-future-trilogyhttp://whatculture.com/film/10-plot-holes-that-almost-ruined-back-to-the-future.phpBioshock also has parallel universes overlapping. You can't have two versions of one person existing at the same time and not have problems.The meaningful statement I take from the story is about...
I thought some of that at first but the way they tied them together was very well done. Pseudo-intellectual would still be better than none at all that you see in games where it's only gameplay like jumping around, racing or shooting. Gameplay focused games have their place but story-driven games do too and I would say more important for younger audiences. Bioshock Infinite has 10,000 lines of dialog with excellent character development and a story arc.The storyline is...
I'm not sure how that came from what I wrote there but it's clear that the whole system needs a balance. It's not about hating on anyone for being rich any more than hating on a pimp for exploiting impoverished women. The circumstances shouldn't exist for the exploitation to take place. The rich would still be rich under a more balanced system and still live a very lavish lifestyle.The danger in how the system works now is that the reward system is heavily weighted towards...
Originally decades ago games were for kids but in the mid 90s, Sony realised that kid gamers in the 80s would be getting into late teens/early 20s and still wanted to play games so they made the more grown up Playstation. Nintendo's successor the N64 didn't do nearly as well as the Playstation. The Playstation 2 sealed the deal and is the best-selling games console of all time. Over time, all age ranges have found some form of gaming that appeals.There are game industry...
I think the current system is bad too. It relies on companies being ethical and has an arbitrary timeframe implemented. Everybody just accepts that financials and taxes are to be sorted on a yearly basis but there isn't much reason to do this. Relying on businesses tracking their own expenses and then reporting them honestly/accurately isn't working as they exploit international laws. If the taxes were taken off during every transaction, there's no timeframe. Shops have to...
The second research was after the S3, the first was before it. Customers don't know what they don't want until they see it. They didn't make the S3 Mini until a while after the S3 shipped.Around the time of the S2, likely before it, they asked customers what they wanted and they said smaller than an iPad bigger than an iPhone so they made the Note so as not to risk their flagship smartphone business. They must have had a positive reception for the Note and then designed...
The weight difference is interesting, the 13" Air (1.35kg) is only 14% lighter than the 13" rMBP (1.57kg), which again suggests they don't need both. I suspect the 15" would be easier to cut down because the components have a much higher power draw. The Air is 15W tops, the 13" rMBP is 35W, the 15" can sustain 90W, although the entry CPU is 47W on its own.The 15" (2.02kg) has a 95Wh battery and lasts 8 hours so average draw of 10.6W to achieve this. The battery itself...
You should get insurance to cover accidental damage - get some for your replacement phone. If you buy a new car and crash it, the company you bought it from won't give you a new one, you claim for it on your car insurance. Apple does sometimes switch out phones under warranty but usually for defects of some kind, not for water damage or breakages.
That's sensor resolution, if the optics among other things don't produce that effective resolution, the sensor's not going to be much benefit. The Galaxy S5 camera doesn't look to be any better than the 5S:http://blog.laptopmag.com/iphone-5s-vs-galaxy-s5The Lumia 1020 had a 42 megapixel sensor and it at least delivered on the quality somewhat:http://www.trustedreviews.com/nokia-lumia-1020_Mobile-Phone_review_camera-image-quality_Page-4"First, let’s tackle optical image...
Comment at the bottomhttp://techcrunch.com/2012/05/16/its-time-for-a-larger-iphone/"I had the chance to go to a seminar here in Seoul at the Samsung headquarters where the lady presenting the strategy behind the Galaxy Note told us:Ok we asked customers, what's wrong with the ipad? they said "it's too big!"And the iPhone? "it's too small"! customers said.SO... because we are so smart we made something in between...and the Galaxy note was born."The Galaxy S2 ripped off the...
