Así Es La Vida ... muy peñoso ...When I was a kid my heros were the Lone Ranger and Tonto ... quite unflattering to the Native American! 
Claro senor !
Mas o menos ...The LinX tech may be different, but it produces similar results:
Yeah, there's a good article about this and FCPX at patentlyapple.com:http://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2015/04/apple-to-bring-z-depth-mapping-to-final-cut-pro-x.htmlTo illustrate the possibilities, they show an Adobe video on z-depth processing:What's most interesting to me is the compositing of layers towarrds the end ...It appears that they are reconstructing a layer (the parachutist?) even though it contains missing parts occluded by a shape nearer to the...
Not, necessarily true ... You can build something, say, to an A8X spec -- and get 30% yield (70% rejects).But, you can retest the rejects at, say, a lesser A8 spec -- and get an additional 50% yield ...So, the premier devices like the next iPhone have a low yield, but secondary devices like AppleTV, iPad Mini. etc. are much higher yields ...This is the way bleeding-edge semiconductor manufacturing works -- and those who can, plan for and take advantage of retesting at a...
Be careful not to drop that piece of cheese on the chess board Again, with apologies ti Tony Orlando ...Tap three times on the left wrist -- for a good move;Twice on the right [tap, tap] means it's a no-go!
  Lesson learned ... Beware the Chess Poop! Now, an App for the Apple Watch that allows you to count cards in the shoe -- Blackjack in Las Vegas (Sport) -- or Chemin de fer in Divonne-les-Baines (Edition). The way I see it, soon, the developer will have access to the Watch sensors ... And he could, then, write a Watch app that detects things like strumming fingers, taps, slight arm movements, slight clenching of the hand as input -- then provide taptic feedback when...
As I mentioned earlier, I'm not employed as a programmer (or anything else). But I was -- and I've been around computers from maimframes and their antecedents (1956) to wearables 2015. I have seen lot's of programming languages come and go ... AlGOL, NEST, FORTH, SOAP, FARGO ...If you make a living programming, likely, you have limited choices, such as:fulltime employmentcontract employmentindependent developerFor 1 and 2, above, you, likely, have little freedom to...
