  1. heyyoudvd added a post in a topic New Apple TV remote to have Wii-like motion sensing   

    Mark Gurman is reporting that it will run between $149 and $199 and it will be available in October.
    The current $69 Apple TV will stick around, it will receive a software update, and it will support Apple's streaming tv service when that's released next year, but it won't support the new App Store and SDK, and it won't get the new Siri-enabled user interface with the new remote.

    I just saw the episode and while I was decently entertained, I don't really understand why this show exists.
    I mean, it's the exact same show, just with different characters. We're seeing the gradual collapse of society, which is different from Rick waking up to see that society has already collapsed, but that process can only go on for so long. Pretty soon, this show is going to arrive in the post-apocalyptic world, and once that happens, it'll be the exact same show as The Walking Dead. Because if that, FtWD seems redundant and pointless.

    It looks like a vagina, not an unwashed asshole.

    New Apple TV remote to have Wii-like motion sensing
    I'm very curious to see how this interface works. The remote is said to include a touch pad (possibly with Force Touch capabilities), Siri, and now, motion sensing controls. I wonder if these input methods work in tandem somehow. Every single TV-based UI I've ever used has been awful, so I'm really hoping that Apple has finally been able to crack that.
    Matthew Panzarino of TechCrunch just laid out a lot of interesting tidbits about the new Apple TV box and the company's plans. Apple Is About To Lay Down Its TV Cards
    In addition to the new interface and input methods, it will feature an updated design, completely new internals (A8-based, but more powerful than an iPhone 6 because it doesn't have to worry about conserving power), it will have a full native SDK, and it will place a heavier focus on gaming.
    Finally, regarding Apple's long awaited streaming tv service:

    To be fair, the fact that the trilogy deviated from the book isn't the problem. A film or show can greatly differ from its source material and still be excellent. The problem with this trilogy isn't that it didn't stay true to the novel; the problem with this trilogy is that it's overly long, meandering, and lacks focus or direction.

  7. heyyoudvd added a post in a topic Galaxy Note 5 design flaw: A backwards S-Pen can permanently damage the device   

    Technology is not perfect. No one is immune to bugs and defects. The point is that there are varying degrees of severity. Apple's quality assurance is simply on a higher level than that of most other companies and that's because it does very few things compared to other companies of that scale. It has far fewer products and far greater focus than a company like Samsung, and because of that, it achieves fewer defects and better customer satisfaction.
    Yes, issues like antenna-gate occasionally occur, but like I pointed out, that's not on the same level as this S Pen issue. Temporarily worsening your cellular signal by "holding it wrong" is not the same as permanently and irreversibly breaking your device with a simple action that anyone is liable to do with one quick second of carelessness. Making the stylus like that was a poor design decision on Samsung's part and it's silly to say that I'd defend Apple for such an action, as it's a moot point given that Apple wouldn't allow a design like that through QA in the first place. And like I said, when mistakes do occur, it's a lot easier for Apple to fix them and satisfy customers, given the retail infrastructure they've built up over the past decade and a half.

    This is an irrelevant question because Apple's QA is too high for something this obvious and this widespread to make it through in the first place.
    Besides, even when a defect does make it to the final product, Apple has the infrastructure in place to initiate a simple recall and exchange program for customers - namely, via its hundreds of physical Apple Stores. That's something that Samsung can never hope to compete with, in terms of providing a simple product exchange for customers.

    If there's one complaint people had for those movies, it's that they weren't long enough!

    Apparently you don't know who Leo Laporte is...
     
    If you don't think this is a real issue, you're kidding yourself. Bendgate was purely cosmetic and even antennagate was not something that physically damaged the device. With this issue, all it takes is a moment of carelessness or one second in the hands of your kid and you've permanently broken the thing.

    That's the plan! That's why I went through with the surgery. Every doctor told me that I could live the rest of my life pretty normally without having surgery. But I'd be persistently weak and may never be able to push myself hard at the gym again. Fuck that. I want to lift.
    I'm more motivated than ever. The other day, I even put my workout equipment on a shelf at eye level right next to my bed as a persistent reminder and motivator to get back to it. As soon as my doctor clears me, I'm jumping right back in with more motivation than ever. It'll be a slow process, but I'm determined.

    I'm out of surgery. The doctor said it went really well. About 70% of the pec had been detached and he managed to reconnect it all.
    Now comes the long recovery and healing process.
    I'll be lifting more than @kaberle in no time. ;-)

    It's not that I thought people would have a problem; it's that I thought people would find it less attractive.
    It's like baldness. Women still date bald guys and plenty of bald guys are able to pull super attractive wives and girlfriends, but if given the choice, most guys would rather have a head full of hair because that's generally more attractive.

    Not a single woman that I've spoken to has said that scars are a turn-off.
    I'm going to have a 3-4" incision on my shoulder near my armpit, and I was afraid it would be a real turn-off with the ladies. But apparently not. Every single person who I've spoken to has ranged from being indifferent, to saying it's interesting because a scar tells a story, to outright saying that scars are hot. No one has said that they're a turn-off. That's a bit of a relief for me.
