Re: Unlike Aurora
It's compatible with either, not both. You have to specify which engine compatibility you want on setup.

Experience and wisdom are valuable and, therefore, expensive. Age, however, is not a reliable indicator of either of these things.
If someone with 30 years experience is that much "better and faster" then their pay should reflect that. However, it should be based on performance and not simply their age.
Unfortunately, the resellers have brought this on themselves. As someone who knows way too much about one of the largest wholesalers and their reseller subsideriaries in the UK, I know just how uniformly useless they are. There is never anything in stock, most of their orders are still done over the phone as they do not have web ordering and they have no idea (on a large scale) of who is ordering what.
Also, the number of layers between pencil manufacturer and customer can be staggering, each of which takes their own cut meaning stupidly high prices for basic items.
The only reason these companies are still going is because a lot of business need to purchase via invoice which Amazon did not used to do.
The point is that both propositions, without evidence, are absurd. It is not that I do not 'believe' that there is a God (or orbiting teapot etc), it is that I reject other's assertion that there is.
I also do not understand some religious people's obsession with regarding a lack of belief as a belief itself. Is your belief in a God as strong and important to you as your belief that there are no orbiting teapots?
"Disbelief in a god is also a belief, because if you can't prove a god, you can't absolutely prove the non-existence of one either, so disbelief in a god is also faith"
Yeah, not true for the vast majority of cases.
"There is no God", in everyday speech, is shorthand for "Given all available evidence, the probability of the existence of god(s) is so low that it can reasonably be classed as impossible".
See also, orbiting teapots.
It may well be true, albeit misleading.
I assume that everyone who wants a pro-level Mac is going to buy one of these. Everyone who wants a pro-level Windows or Linux machine, however, has a lot more to choose from, therefore, their individual share will be a lot lower.
I work for a consultancy. We promote agile practices. We promote DevOps.
I have worked in multiple teams where DevOps is a 'thing' and, hands down, they have been the most productive teams I have ever worked on.
What that means is that the team was responsible for the product. From building it to deploying it to supporting it. There were people on the team who specialised in operations as well as people who specialised in development.
However, everyone was responsible for everything.
Devs/Testers/Ops write code.
Devs/Testers/Ops deploy code.
Devs/Testers/Ops provide support in Live.
Where I have seen it not work is when the DevOps 'team' is just another team that exists between Dev and Ops. Instead of one wall, there are then two to throw things over.
These were multi-million pound accounts and led to the practices we put in place being used more widely within both companies.
Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream for playing movies and TV shows through Netflix.
0.5 Megabits per second - Required broadband connection speed
1.5 Megabits per second - Recommended broadband connection speed
3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
25 Megabits per second - Recommended for Ultra HD quality
You barely reach the recommended speed for standard definition (which can look terrible on an HD TV). And that is for one device. Most houses have multiple devices connecting at once, e.g. mobile phones, TVs etc.
The difference here is that Microsoft sell a completed version of Windows which is installed on a device. Google create a version of Android which is then modified by the OEM before being installed. Google have no control over these modifications therefore cannot release a 'fix' that will work on all devices.
Google have made attempts to address this and supply a lot of updates via the Google Play Services. It is, however, an issue that will continue to plague Android unless a better solution is found.
I shall assume that you are being deliberately obtuse. If not, then I struggle to comprehend how you even managed to post this given your obvious development difficulties.
For the sake of the argument I shall summarise the issue for you:
1. Person A has Apple phone with iMessage switched on
2. Person A switches Apple phone to an Android phone
3. Person A is no longer receiving all of their text messages because Apple is still processing them through iMessage which is not compatable with Android
4. Person A does not want to run iMessage on their Android, they just want their text messages delivered.
Now could you please explain your analogy and how it relates to the story.
It's a shame that the price point has increased (although, perhaps inevitable). I have recommended the Moto G from the beginning, being responsible for probably a dozen sales across the versions, including the Moto G 4G that I am using at the moment.
Does this give another company room to enter the market with a good, cheap phone?
I am also a Guardian reader who had no visible signs of frothing whilst reading the article.
I can't say that I was a fan of all of the language used (e.g. “Suck it up, honey!” being more my attitude, you want the blessing of children then there's costs that go with them) but the content of the article is something that I have been saying for a long time.
I had to put in a complaint to Virgin Media about their email campaign which was offering the Big Kahuna bundle for only £X more than I currently pay.
Unfortunately for them maths was not their strong point as I worked it out that it would have actually cost £X+Y more (can't remember the figures but Y>5).
I bought a pair of Uggs for my girlfriend in New York a few years ago. Pretty much the first time she wore them she scuffed her toe on the curb which made a hole in the boot.
We got in touch with Ugg in the UK and they arranged for a free replacement with no fuss. We did buy them from the actual Ugg store rather than a reseller though so not sure if this made a difference.
This is the beauty of Android though. There is choice.
If you want a front facing camera, don't buy this phone and get one that does - Moto G? You can't expect a low-budget phone to have all of the features of a high end phone. You do get to pick which features are important to you though.
The only issue I have is how much knowledge the customer has up-front. As a front-facing camera is pretty much the norm, I would expect it to be on all phones unless told otherwise.
I was caught out with this by the Nexus range's lack of FM radio (it is an obsolete technology apparently, albeit one that is infinitely preferable to internet radio outside of major cities and / or any place where more than 2 people congregate). It wasn't enough to stop me going back for another one but I would have felt better knowing in advance (I know I should have read the specs more carefully but it is easier to spot the things that are there than the things that are not).
