I live in an area served by Community Fibre (Putney) and the estate has already been "fibre'd up". Every flat has a fibre strand outside ready to get installed. Why Openreach couldn't have done this...
Anyway, if prices stay the same, it's going to be difficult for anyone to compete with them: 150mbs is £25, and 1Gbps is £49
Had a look at some of your other posts to see in you truly are as dumb as toast, or a troll, and came across this nugget:
"As the frequency goes up, signal reception will get worse, because as the wave length gets shorter, so does the size of obstacles, it can get past, gets smaller, so more cell nodes are required."
So, I can get better wifi at home if I make my furniture smaller?
That's really not how propagation works. I suggest that you go and read the "Ladybird book of science for cretins"
Whilst the Smithsonian at Dulles is a smorgasboard of flight (Especially the De Havilland Chipmunk, which I learnt to fly in), the real interesting artefact is downtown DC, where they actually have a secondary Skylab.
1. It ain't pretty. It's this horrible cat vom yellow, IMMSMC, but amazing nonetheless.
2. It's amazing how they took a stage of the Saturn 5 and managed to shoehorn in Skylab
3. It's both big and small at the same time. You really do have to see it to comprehend both
When Brexit happened, a friend, who is Finnish, and I had a conversation, and I asked why there had been a resurgence of far right beliefs across Europe. She replied that it had always been there, it was just more obvious now due to social media, etc.
Gobshites like this need making an example of. I'd be amazed if he lasts the day.
8 core i7 in my Mac uses 45w. A 10 core version of the above chip uses 31w (if there's linearity with watts per core)
You can see why Apple made the change. And when there's talk of 5nm.... Intel are nowhere near
Bootnote: Yes, I'm completely aware of chalk / cheese / lumps of coal and elephants are not the same thing, but....
Obviously didn't watch the keynote: "changes in any of their code...." If you've done everything properly and not used poorly / non maintained libraries, then you "should" be okay with just a recompile
However, I realise that 3rd party libraries are both the saviour and bane of a developers life
But, and I see this so much in Agile, developers use libraries because they are either lazy or under too much pressure to meet those user stories
I truly don't understand this logic. Not for one second do I think Apple would mandate that you could *only* install apps from the app store... And due to that, I believe it renders your argument null and void.
For example, whilst you can download Office apps from the Apple App store, Apple sees not one penny of any office licenses.
Netflix: You can happy sign up outside of the iOS app, should you feel strong enough about it
Before the app store, app distribution was a complete mess. And now, as a developer, you don't have to worry for a second about distribution, updates, content hosting, metrics, billing, etc, etc. It's all done for you. And if you are going to charge for your app, then isn't it fair that Apple gets a cut, given you get all of the above included?
Now, if Apple mandated that the ONLY way to get a subscription for something was through the app, then I think everyone would have a valid argument. Whilst you can spend your monies outside of the app, then, well...
I wanted to highlight the opposite side to "just say no...."
I work for a company that's embraced Video Conferencing since video conferencing was a thing.... Firstly, it's not mandated. You can chose NOT to have video on, and if you do, it's never questioned. People very quickly discovered that "you should be careful with what you wish for" when requesting video.
Anyway... Right now I miss my colleagues. I work in a great office, with great people, and I genuinely miss them. So, being able to see who you're talking to, and seeing their micro reactions, is so incredibly powerful. In so many different ways. A text message is soulless. An email, inhuman. A phone call is social, and a video call is personal.
To realise that work is a thing that you do, not a place that you go to.
However, not for one second am I suggesting that we all abandon the concept of the workplace: Many of my colleagues really don't live in the biggest of places (This is london, after all), and it really wouldn't be good for one's mental health.
However, I work longer hours when I'm at home, am not interrupted as much and work for a company that's embraced home working as long as I can remember.
I do miss the free coffee, though. Costing me a fortune in Mail Order Monmouth Coffee!
There's absolutely NO reason for these junkets to be held physically bar the one reason that you mention above. The amount of insight I've gained just by talking to people so far removed from my rhomboid of influence is immeasurable.
However, I have recently become very aware of the impact of them (and Vegas is a s**thole of outstanding proportions)
To be fair, the move from 32bit to 64bit was nothing more than a recompile. I'd expect this to be the same.
HOWEVER: If you've been lazy / underfunded / work in agile / etc, and used / relied upon 3rd party libraries, then I pity you, because you'll either sit in Apple purgatory, or need to dump them and write your own.
Thought long and hard about this. We've become so immune to advertising, you have to argue about its relevance and success. Therefore, events like MWC do offer great opportunities for smaller companies to sell their wares
HOWEVER: It was blatantly obvious that it would be cancelled when some of the big wigs started cancelling, and even if you didn't think it would be cancelled, if you were putting sales in front of the welfare of your staff, then I have no pity for you...
The shittiest part is that GSMA cancelled it, and is offering no refunds: This attitude may, in itself, be the death knell for MWC
