It's a pretty high valuation, especially when the founder will leave the company and the studio's main game has already been bought in large numbers:http://www.businessinsider.com/minecraft-creator-markus-notch-persson-is-leaving-mojang-2014-9That's a pretty steep income curve too. Started working as an employee at King (Candy Crush Saga) at 26, stayed for for 4.5 years using Actionscript and Java. Left before Candy Crush Saga happened to work elsewhere and then started...
The pixelated mess happens with video if you skip to the middle of a block it can't decode fully but I'm only talking about two frames, not a large group of frames.The display would have a frame buffer (db), the device sending the data has the same buffer, call it the source buffer (sb).The first time, it fills sb with the image and sends it using the visually lossless compression or in two passes (50% each) to db.The next time, it compares the new frame with sb and stores...
Mobile devices don't have swap space like desktops/laptops so once the RAM is out, that's it. A computer with swap has RAM + free drive space for memory. I just think they should use memory compression like they do with OS X. Every time a browser tab moves into the background, they can quickly compress it in RAM and decompress it otherwise. They could try to exclude active media from the compression step like a video playing in the background but most people wouldn't...
I don't think it contradicts it as an object being in a space doesn't necessarily make it part of the space like being in a pool or a kitchen doesn't make someone part of those spaces. You wouldn't average your skin tones in with a kitchen to arrive at the color of the kitchen if you happened to be in it. The dictionary defines space as:"the near-vacuum extending between the planets and stars, containing small amounts of gas and dust."So it's ok to say that stars and...
Thinking more about this, they could just send the difference between successive frames. So say they send a desktop image over, the display can buffer the frame and the OS takes the difference between the frame it knows the display has in a buffer and the new one, compresses the difference and sends that over. If an image doesn't change more than half the pixels between frames, they can save at least 50% of the bandwidth. Instantaneous large changes in the display would...
Same amount of stuff a guy takes when moving house. Handy though when you need the most random of objects.Now with phablets, they have a spare dinner tray.It's hard to say because the orders are capped by the production limits - the preorders sell out. They only have so much capacity to make the phones. If they started production around July, that gave them a 2 month lead time. Their highest quarterly volume was around 50m iPhones. With a 2 month lead time, they might be...
It might have enough bandwidth for 5K but it's pushing it to the limit.5120x2880 x 24bpp x 60Hz = 21.2GbpsThunderbolt 2 has ~20Gbps. The displayport 1.3 standard supports up to 8K. Some Macs had a passthrough mode on the port to support higher resolutions but this means the port can't be used for anything else.Some parts of the display industry want to push forward to 8K (7680x4320 = 48Gbps).The problem is sending uncompressed data over the wire. It can be compressed like...
That's something odd about the launch because the watches all seem to be running a pre-made demo loop. This guy had a tough time undoing the magnetic clasp:One of the hands-on demos managed to get what looks like an Apple employee to show it off and the software looks terrible (his demo starts about 0:35):The UI was lagging when he panned and scrolled apps, the crown zoom was choppy, it wan't responding well to gestures, it shut the screen off too quickly and when he...
It seems to depend on iCloud settings if it auto-downloads. I didn't get it on any device as I don't use iCloud at all. I'd use iCloud if I could configure it to auto-download nude celebs, it took ages finding those and sorting duplicates is a nightmare. I suspect most people will have to search for it on the store manually and download it. I checked it out that way and didn't bother.I have a few U2 songs but the latest ones don't really have a mix of lyrics and melody...
Yeah, a few people do actually, they just send a PM to shut their account. I suppose it's like suicide by cop. They don't have the willpower to take action themselves. There was a time when I'd try talking them out of it but meh.$60-80 apparently:http://www.dailytech.com/Teslas+Battery+Swap+Only+Takes+90+Seconds+Costs+6080/article31810.htmhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_station"Elon Musk said the battery swapping service would be offered for the price of about 15 US...
