Update: I picked up a huawei Matebook X 13"! At least temporarily...
I love the physical attributes, 0.5" thick, 2.3lbs, 13" 2160x1440 (the BH page is just wrong on the 2560x1440 res) thin...
Been a Surface user for a number of years now. When they first came out the form factor was amazing compared to clamshell laptops of the day. But I'm sick of the floppy Surface Pro keyboard losing connection and having to be fiddled with to reconnect, and being unable to sit it on my lap without...
Fast charge and a non-serviceable battery? So it'll be toast in 12 months. Not shelling out $700 for a disposable phone. Batteries are a wear item, I wouldn't buy a car with non-serviceable tires, and I won't buy a phone with a non-serviceable battery.
I think the overall vehicle shape is more like a Pontiac Aztek than a Juke. The Juke would have decent lines if they nixed the oddly protruding light fixtures. The X is an aztek without the pontiac plastic cladding and bigger wheels.
Still $1300 to get 8GB of RAM in 2017.
Which is really unfortunate, as I'm a huge fan of the 3:2 aspect ratio screen. 16:9 gets way too short with a taskbar and menu bar.
Any other tall aspect ratio ultraportables to check out? My SP3 is showing it's age.
Several hundred feet (200'-300') up? You're not going to hear a phantom 3/4 to the point that it would be annoying. With a mild wind or typical wildlife, you're not going to hear it at all.
Now, no one should fly 'near you in your yard', but even if they did why do you think shooting is an...
This is exactly what an importer does though, buys or produces a good in a place with lower costs of production then sells it in a place where they can realize a profit.
I see absolutely no line of reasoning where being your own digital importer could be frowned upon in any moral sense. This...
Because Apple would lose any customer PR points if they were just like:
Why do you need our help FBI? It's easy to crack our encryption scheme.
The FBI pushed for Apple to do it because they wanted to set the precedent and nothing sets precedent easier than "Terrists!" and/or "Think of the...
Interesting. I could see this being great during busy times. Rent the SUV for a week or two around holidays and vacation times, hit the 65 rides easily and the fees are waived entirely, for someone like a college student on break, that would be awesome.
Since lcpiper isn't here to defend himself, let me give it a shot:
This is like saying your phone company spies on you. The NSA doesn't spy on Americans, they just assembled the database. It's clearly the FBI that's spying on Americans. But don't worry, the entire government is staffed by good...
I've had good experiences with Steelseries mice, specifically a Sensei I've been using for over 2 years with no noticeable degradation. My last Razer lasted 8 months. I've never had a Razer work correctly for more than a year.
Most space elevator proposals I've seen involve extruding a cable from a suitable captured asteroid in geostationary orbit. The asteroid then provides the counterbalance as the cable is built and lowered.
The Ipad Pro is like the Surface RT, an answer to a question no one was asking. Well, except "What's the next apple product I can throw my money at?", but I was thinking more in terms of practical uses.
Loved my Atrix. Not so much for the lapdock as the micro-HDMI output that let me use it as a portable media player on most displays.
And the microSD so I had space for said media.
And the fingerprint scanner on the back, which was so much better than my current (well-loved) Note 4's home...
Tell me that after a year or two of no one cleaning the crapper. Bet they'll be wishing for someone with the vision to pay the janitor better. Stock holders won't care though...Just another unnecessary salary off the books!
Really? [No.] What's so hard about it? [Making choices without personal consequences.]
Do they get paid little or nothing if they do a bad job? [No.] Are they unable to find another job after doing a bad job? [No.]
Sounds pretty darn easy.
Trickle-down would be funny if it weren't such an...
FB wants to act as national ID service (with appropriately strict identity verification procedures), online voting precinct, and all around big brother. You'll need a FB account to vote or travel and it will be illegal to use anything but your full real name if they get their way.
Did you mean the Space Race?
Because the agencies funded during the Cold War are apparently doing just dandy. The NRO recently donated multiple Hubble-class optical arrays to NASA. Presumably because they already have better...
Show shipping, tax, poor packaging when they finally do ship...it's cool Amason, bby, wally world, microcenter etc are happy to fulfill my orders and PM you. Plus they have b&m locations if I want things same day.
I still look at Amason for reviews, but those are going downhill too.
Geostationary satellites have to orbit at ~22,000mi. Low Earth Orbit is only a few hundred miles though. If they're considering using this on drones, obviously fixed elevation/azimuth is not an issue, so long as they put up a sufficient number of sats to keep one within LOS at all times latency...
