It is in terrible taste, because of that song. Where did it come from?They also should realize that fitness in general is a whole universe of bad taste, and doesn't bear repetitive, high-definition depiction. Right under the surface of this narcissism is a whole bunch of dirty, smelly laundry. It ain't at all sexy, unless you've got some fetish or other. I could go on, but I won't. Sufficient to note that it won't sell in France.
@joseph_went_south, interesting. So I see Carplay is a very big deal, thinking about it from this point of view. (I'm not a candidate since I stubbornly keep a small stable of ancient VWs for transport. It's a California thing.) But the idea is that the car is going to get grafted to the Apple ecosystem, along with the home and the personal walkaround space. Now we're talking here about Apple extending into the object-manufacturing space. Actually the acquisition of 3D...
Fear and hostility to novelty is much in evidence in this thread. A little reflection will reward the imaginative person with the certainty that the digital capture, storage and reproduction of 3D objects is as important an advance as photography.. Naturally the visionaries at Apple would be expected to be leading an integrated, end-to-end approach to working out the details of making the technology practical.
Funny. Hadn't seen that one.
Shame Christina Farr just set her career back to the cub reporter/copy girl level. Worst thing is, it was probably the Reuters editors that put her up to this or butchered her story, or both. If you look at her profile on About.Me, she doesn't seem like such a lowlife. Edit: Took out the Valleywag reference. Venture Beat and Business Insider have had her bylines. Since Jim Dalrymple didn't even mention her name, instead only blaming Reuters, I'm inclined to guess that...
Correct, easier to edit, and if it's the one you have in your hand at a good moment, well then . . . who cares what you look like? You got the shot.
The "some intellect" is the key. He actually handles ideas very well. This invites hatred from the ignorant and the insecure. People who think cavemen played with dinosaur babies in wheelbarrows because they saw it on TV.
@palomine, I hope you'll find something useful. Maybe Wired was where I was seeing the stories about the Gore plan to use space-based cameras to foster whole-Earth ecological thinking among the world population. I seem to remember he was thinking that view of the whole Earth would be the only product of such an observatory. Nowadays, we might have other ideas we could pursue, especially if we used two satellites spaced a certain distance apart for a parallaxed stereo...
Actually, I didn't have to look anything up, it's in my head. Should be in everybody's head. I think everyone who knows how to read and who went to school should know that writing began with marks on clay tablets. And I would think that they'd have some timeline, like Mesopotamia, 3 or 4000 BC. Moses, way later in Canaan, maybe around the time of the phonetic alphabet.Cavemen and wheels, what can I say? A 25,000-year anachronism. Too much Flintstones, not enough thinking...
