None of that code is really clear, of almost none of the variables I can see what type they are and how they are evaluated.

"The force of attraction between the objects is gravity. It causes ripples in spacetime and the energy takes the form of gravitational waves." The force of attraction by itself doesn cause riples just like that the earth vs sun attraction causes any rimples.
It's the merging and thus moving that causes the riples. Everything that moves through space causes ripples, although only massive objects can be detected.
Re: Wasn't HTML5 supposed to fix all this?
I have tried some of the more famouse HTL5 app developer tools and they all don't give that nice native user experience you get when you code in the phone's 'native' language.
Each time you click something in a HTML5 app you just notice that slight delay, that little hickup.
Re: You answered your own musings...
On a related note, I jailbreaked my Android phone (Xperia V) and I got down from 30h to 20h. My phone is now incredibly fast so I cannot complain. I am just saying that each side of a coin has a flip side or a other story.
I own both a iOS device and a Android device and I do notice that on a Android device I am much more baby sitting. Turning X on, Configuring Y, removing XYZ, checking battery status (was radio on, was WIFI on, who did consume the battery... ooo noooo, not again Google play services... check's GPS...)
Again, I am not complaining because now I can do a other year with this phone before I can by a new one, but I rather not baby sit a device..
Re: Anyone in the Netherlands wanna swap citizenships?
Just like the US, here in holland you can come and work for a local company and if you are good (masters degree/doing something special), they are more then willing to support you.
A other route is the belgium/german route (search google for it) but I believe you gotta have a girlfriend/boyfriend that iw willing to support you.
Step 1 ) Turn yourself into pure energy.
Step 2) Travel at the speed of light.
Step 3) When arrive at destination, turn yourself from energy back into mass.
Step 4) Profit.
From your your own point of view you 'jumped' from point A to point B.
The only difference is that the place you jumped into was 'shifted' in time by XX.
First time I did see glass on a head was last Oct 2014 and to be honest I was less worried then I initially imagined I would have been.
I must admit, the guy I was talking to was sorta familiar in my interest area so I guess I was ok with it.
I do believe this has huge potential for work related items, even driving a car or whatever. Not just to put on your head and do gardening..
As always, we need to see how well, or not so wel it will work. I like apple products, but i am not the type that really needs a watch and a mobile i just use once a day. So i have a android phone, and no watch, as i don't require ( and want to stay up to date every minute of my life). May be it's great, may be it's. Ot...we know in a couple of months..l
Re: Installing an app from a random torrent is definitely smart
I agree on that title.
On the other hand why would the app have so much power, why would give the Android OS so much power to a application. Why is there even a option to give that much power?!?! It just baffles me. I know this is properly the end user's fault because it checked off the 'do whatever you want with my phone' checkbox during installation. On the other hand Android really should ask these questions in the first place and simply deny access.
I usually don't see big mistakes on google maps, mostly little items where you are directed through a city and you find out the roads google thing's are free to drive through are just actually one way streets, or blocked. I know a least one city here where google claim's it's in the middle of a highway.
So far it did bring me close enough to the spot i needed to be. Nothing is perfect...
You guys did never hear of Skype WIFI? I have used that since many years now, imcannot even remember how long at that always worked on airports as long as I can remember. Just start the application, and you pay through Skype, very simple.
I Hotels in the US apparently i have been lucky, or I am a cheapskate but i always had free wifi, it's not the fastest, but good enough to make a call. I do use B&B's far more often ( it's better everything compared to a hotel) but always had fre wifi, without getting asked the size of my penis.
"I run Wordpress because it seems one of the best available."
May be at the time it was easy for you to understand. However in reality, Wordpress is great for blogging, but that's all what Wordpress does well. I know it has CMS features with plugins but it's a laugh compared to wCMS systems that where from the ground up designed to be a (w)CMS.
May be it's time for you tome move on?
Re: Yet no updates for many working apples
It was released 9 years ago, and last update was 6 years ago. Tim, stop complaining!
That XP is still maintained is not because MS wanted it, but because MS was stupid enough to release vista with it's new driver architecture that nobody supported, so customers where forced to stick to XP, it really not comparable with the lifecycle of OS/X.
Re: This is the excuse of the "analysts"
I was reading somewhere that phablets are just 10% or for word wide sales, so I think apple was kinda right there. I do believe apple was wrong with smaller tablets. I am not sure myself if that because of price or that people really love smaller tablet sizes.
I always wondered why kickstarter projects need so little money, if you cannot get in 35k yourself, 3 blokes at 12k each. Then it still screams hobby to me.
I also wonder, if the project is really such a good idea surly you can hookup iwth a company close to you? How many of these kickstarter companies do still exists today?
For one, i have seen at least in some advertisement's that the answer is from siri, but not in the same time.
I personally feel that although with my dutch/english accent siri does understand me well enough. I can set appointments, move them, set timer and all the simple stuff. I also dont't understand the analogy of the 'when you buy a car', at least at that time siri was beta, so people could knew it wasn't perfect.
So i strongly believe this wasn't false advertising based on what has been said in the ads's and that siri was in beta.
So, chill out everybody!
Re: JS is the new ASM?
Ac, exacly what i am thinking. I really miss a strong typed language here. Just yesterday i was doing some simple JS and my IDE cannot even suggest proper variable or function names.
Dart might be great for the people invented it, or for the people really using it day to day today, and be experts. But for there mere mortals it's just a other language to learn..
Re: Storefront Technology
I down-voted you post only because you did bring Apple into the mix.
This trend didn't really start with Apple. I remember a time that i had Cd's i could play anywhere in the world, until Hollywood decided that its a good idea to add regions to dvd. So, a DVD bought in the US couldn't be played in Europe, which is a huge restriction as far as i can see it the start of 'restrictions'.
Just saying that its not fair to point fingers to apple here.
Besides that, the game and software industry in general have been doing this already for year, way before Apple came with the iphone. Mac os/x doesn't have any of the restrictions, added so people won't forget.
God, i hate youtube.
"This video doesn't play on this device...(user switches to mobile mode and) voila video plays.
The problem is that Google interpretation on how a mobile version of a site should work and look like is just terrible.
On the desktop version i cannot do full screen on a tablet, but i cannot play all video's. On the desktop version I can play the video, but full,screen doesn't work AAaAaAaAArch.
Why can't google get his shit together and make it work like how it used to work!!
End of rant
I don't see how this is different to some devices that uses a image of your face to allow you into the system.
I think I would like to see a hack where they copied the fingerprint from any place other then the users finger itself to unlock the device. However, I fail to see why this is news worthy. This has been done in the way past
and will be done in future.
But we also have to think about the usecase, this is not to open a bank or your safe. THis is to unlock a phone! If you have more secure stuff on this, simply use the complicated passcode lock, the one that asks more then 4 digits and you are good, well better at least!
