160ms is an age ...

160ms latency is under ideal conditions, right ? so ... once latency is below ~40ms (i.e. a single frame at 25fps) it'll be a lovely thing ... until then, I'm not so sure. lag is a pita, even when backed-up with a ship-load of grunt ...

Mac user values exist?

sure they exist ...

... the ones I find tend to be of the sort that make me want to ... scream ...

like just because its a mac means you've got professional results guaranteed in the box regardless of the complete noob status of the user

like just because the o/s its "easy to use" means the operator is somehow superior - regardless of the complete lack of experience and understanding of the discipline at-hand

like just becase there's garage-band the user is some audio-guru or somthing ... purlease

now I realise the potential for flames in reply to this, so let me justify this. Of course the above are dumb-assed points of view, and yes I also hear these from win & linux users ...

... but nowhere near as often as I do from the Jobsian brigade ...

... infact, I'd expect a knock on the door on a saturday morning - f*ck me its a fanboi with a iPad brochure : asking if I'd like to reconsider my views on the world and how much better life would be if I'd become part of the church of St Jobs. Just as with the real religious nutters, although its satisfying to destroy their arguments in seconds with even the flimsiest of logic ; they rarely have the power of reasoning to keep-up with the argument ... and inevitably choose flawed logic (and now flawed products) swallowed direct from the Cup(ertino) over any notion that they may, just possibly; be wrong ... or god forbid, spent a little too much money on their erm lifestyle computing choices ...

... so shoot me for being a cross-platform anti-zealot ...

Environmental requirements

how Jobsian that apple *requires* the correct environment for its phone ...

"Environmental requirements

* Operating temperature: 32° to 95° F

(0° to 35° C)

* Nonoperating temperature: -4° to 113° F

(-20° to 45° C)

* Relative humidity: 5% to 95% noncondensing

* Maximum operating altitude: 10,000 feet (3000 m)


and isn't 35° C a tad on the cool side ? I mean, wouldn't the thing just cook in my pocket on a hot (for u.k.) day ?
