Why would they? It's just software. Some background to the original question: Elsewhere on the 'net, it's claimed flags and star ratings are lost in the migration to Photos. Are "hidden" flags lost and the (previously hidden) photos uploaded? Are hidden photos sequestered somewhere more private than the cloud? Do users have a choice in this (other than not migrating to Photos ;-)? Inquiring minds want to know.
How are "hidden" photos treated? Are they uploaded to the cloud, as well?
Yet it's become more expensive! Even $30 for 1GB is ridiculous. AI, you didn't mention the overage fees. They used to be $10 per GB, but clearly that's outdated information, given the new "discounted" rate schedule.
IMHO the bass performance of all of these speakers is more of a distraction than an accurate representation of the original signal. Hard to listen to for long--unless you're high and dancing.
UE Boom got shunned by the reviewer, but nevertheless it has excellent sound, a standard micro USB charging port, is waterproof, has a microphone for speakerphone use, a 10-hour battery (really), and can be paired with a second UE Boom to obtain full stereo separation and increased loudness. UE Boom also comes in a variety of colors and patterns to fit with any decor (or personality ;-)
Google Never!
But consumers haven't been able to golf on Mars until now... err, until 10 years from now... or whenever this HoloLens b.s. actually ships. It's going to be really great to clear out all of the furniture in your apartment or house, so it will look like you're really on Mars! If only Microsoft would figure out a way to hide the corners of the room and windows so they don't underlay the fantastic imagery of the Martian landscape.
It is certainly a marketing gimmick. And "hologram" might be the right word, but not for the reasons Microsoft is so overbearingly suggesting. Any hologram involved would be static (fixed at the time of manufacture), perhaps used to beam separate images into the eyes, not a dynamic hologram of computer-generated, 3d imagery.
Who would blame you for not understanding, when such a massive media campaign has been launched to re-educate us? I know, we have such an intelligent, investigative technology news media, they can't all be wrong. But take a gander at the wikipedia page describing holography. Take a close-up look at a hologram. Note the speckling and whorls in the stored, static 3d image. That "noise" is the stored interference pattern of light. That noise then diffracts light to re-produce...
Show us the holography.Show us the buttons on the right side that control brightness, etc.
