replied the topic What's going to happen created by noor1391

Microsoft Mobile is a multinational mobile phone and mobile computing device manufacturing company headquartered in Espoo, Finland, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Microsoft. It is a legal body that oversees and legally represents the activities in the design, development, manufacture and distribution of mobile phones, smartphones, tablet computers, related accessories and services.

Microsoft Mobile was established following the acquisition of Nokia's Devices and Services division by Microsoft, which was completed in April 2014.

Microsoft Mobile got the right to sell mobile phones under the Nokia brand name as part of a 10-year licensing agreement, as long as those phones are based on the S30+ platform which comprises feature phones. Future "Lumia" smartphones fell out of this license and couldn't be released bearing the Nokia brand.[2][3] In October 2014, it was announced that future Lumia devices would carry the Microsoft name and logo instead of "Nokia".[4]

Microsoft Mobile is one of Microsoft's various hardware divisions, others include Surface, Band, HoloLens and Xbox.
By now you've no doubt heard today's surprising news; Microsoft has gobbled up Finland's finest phone division in a $7.2 billion deal. On the surface, it's a takeover that doesn't make much sense. But when you look closer, it... still doesn't make much sense. But that doesn't mean we can't try.

Let's start with what Microsoft is and is not getting, at least on paper. For those billions, Microsoft gets in return:

Nokia's smartphone and mobile phone business, including the manufacturing and assembly bits.
Nokia personnel, including the design team, the sales/operations team, and the Stephen Elop team.
A buncha patents, but not all the patents.
The ability to license Nokia HERE map technology, but not HERE itself, which come on.
A place to crash in Finland.
Which, hey, nice, not bad. But also, arguably, totally unnecessary.

replied the topic Would an iPad be a good alternative? created by maqbool

There are plenty of reasons to take a smartphone along on your trip – in fact, for travelers who aren’t trying to work from the road, it could be the only device they need. While rarely best at anything, smartphones are fine for many tasks that used to require separate gadgets. When you’re trying to reduce space, weight and cost, that’s a big benefit.

- LED multitouch screen is 9.7 inch, 1024 × 768 pixel resolution at 132 pixels per inch, supports the writing of many languages ​​and characters simultaneously
- Apple iPad Battery Durability up to 10 hours of active time and a month standby time
- Wireless Connection Apple iPad will be available in a variety of connection options. In terms of wireless data connection, the iPad will have the ability WiFi 802.11n and 3G connectivity (on a certain type).
- Browser Safari for web access.
- Mail to read e-mail.
- Photos for managing photo archives.
- Video to play video files.
- YouTube to view videos directly to YouTube without going through the web.
- IPod to play music
- ITunes to download music and videos
- App Store for applications mengunduk
- IBooks to read and download e-books from the iBooks Store
- Maps to view maps high-resolution satellite and Street View Images.
- Notes to create a free account.
- Calendar to make the agenda.
- Contacts to record data phone, email, and web companion.
- Home screen to adjust the screen display
- Spotlight search to do a quick search in all parts just by typing in keywords.

Even so, the Apple iPad is still considered to have many shortcomings. This is the reason consumers do not rush to adopt the sleek gadget from Apple.

Some disadvantages iPad

- The size of the display is not too large (aspect ratio of 4: 3, smaller than a standard 16: 9 like the iPod)
- No multitasking
- No camera
- Keyboard touch
- There is no HDMI port
- Do not support Adobe Flash
- There is no USB port
- No support T-Mobile 3G (using microSIM which is rarely used in any device)
- Just can play 480p video
- Not Full GPS (A-GPS only enter via Wi-Fi and 3G)
- There is no slot SDcard
- No Open SDK (Software Development Kit)
- The battery can not be replaced

Among a series of weaknesses, the lack of Adobe Flash on the iPad one of the weaknesses of the most dicecar various circles. PC World even wrote a comparison of the iPad, without Flash, the HP Slate, which supports Flash. Alan Tam from Adobe demonstrated the HP Slate accessing a website in full and "not just a portion of the web site". This is because the Slate using Flash.

Tam explains that 85 percent of 100 leading web sites use Adobe Flash, and 75 percent of all videos on the website depends on Flash technology. Such statistics may seem less favorable for iPad. Nevertheless, it does not change the fact that iPad users will still be able to watch videos on YouTube, listen to streaming music from Pandora, or interact with the web as it has done the user's iPhone or iPod Touch.
They take the place of multiple devices. There’s no longer a need to pack a separate flashlight, map, calculator, music player or alarm clock.
It’s easy to get connected when you need to, even if you’re not using cell data. Cafes, airports and train stations usually have Wi-Fi available, and in much of the world there’s always a McDonald’s or Starbucks nearby if you want bad burgers and coffee with your Facebook.
There are hundreds of useful travel apps out there that work offline. App such that do currency conversion, translation tools, help with navigation, are guide books, itinerary trackers and more can help make your travels easier.

The biggest con is battery life — it’s rare to find a smartphone that will last more than a day of normal use. Long flights, bus rides and days of exploring often result in a dead phone before you get to your accommodation. With everyone else in your dorm room also wanting to charge their gadgets every night, even finding a power socket isn’t always easy.
Although phones are getting larger, a 5″ screen isn’t ideal for entertainment – books and movies aren’t so great on a small screen.
Websites without mobile-friendly versions get annoying very quickly.
Typing on phones is fine for updating your Facebook status or sending a quick message, but you’ll end up frustrated if you’re hoping to do much more.
If you are looking for a simple, cheap, and basic device, a phone may be for you. If you aren’t planning on using your device for work, don’t mind a small screen, or need much, a phone may be for you. For longer form writing, you can always use Internet cafes!

replied the topic Why does the newly released laptops still use 1280X768 resolution screen? created by BladonUnderwood

Cramming 3,686,400 pixels on a 5.5-inch display makes possible a whopping 538 ppi pixel density, way above the previous record held by the HTC One, at 469 ppi.

Putting a Quad HD display on a smartphone is an impressive technical achievement, but we have to ask ourselves, are the returns worth the investment? Some argue that even Full HD (1920 x 1080, also known as 1080p) is overkill on a smartphone screen, so how about Quad HD ? Is it just an upgrade for the sake of upgrading or is it a true value adding improvement?

Oppo actually released another version of the Find 7, called Standard, which comes with a Full HD display of the same dimensions. We compare the two displays below to see how significant the difference between Quad HD and Full HD is.

Note: the devices we received from Oppo are pre-production units. Their displays have not been properly calibrated, so please disregard the color differences.

replied the topic Does a Mac computer use RAM more efficiently? created by NickPinkman

Limits on memory and address space vary by platform, operating system, and by whether the IMAGE_FILE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE value of the LOADED_IMAGE structure and 4-gigabyte tuning (4GT) are in use. IMAGE_FILE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE is set or cleared by using the /LARGEADDRESSAWARE linker option.
4-gigabyte tuning (4GT), also known as application memory tuning, or the /3GB switch, is a technology (only applicable to 32 bit systems) that alters the amount of virtual address space available to user mode applications. Enabling this technology reduces the overall size of the system virtual address space and therefore system resource maximums. For more information, see What is 4GT.
Limits on physical memory for 32-bit platforms also depend on the Physical Address Extension (PAE), which allows 32-bit Windows systems to use more than 4 GB of physical memory.

replied the topic think about future ones? created by opera

Konami is no one’s favorite company right now. After a very messy split with Hideo Kojima, PT has been taken down from digital stores, Silent Hills has been cancelled and the future of Metal Gear Solid is uncertain. But now there might be a reason that Konami doesn’t seem bothered that it’s killing all its beloved console franchises.

Mobile games are the future, of course!

Konami’s new CEO Hideki Hayakawa gave a lengthy interview to Nikkei Trendy Net where he laid out how the company’s new mission going forward would be an unrelenting focus on mobile. His statement has been translated by NeoGAF, and it’s worth reading in its entirety.

“We will pursue mobile games aggressively. Our main platform will be mobiles. Following the pay-as-you-play model of games like Power pro and Winning Eleven with additional content, our games must move from selling things like “items” to selling things like “features.”

What you want isn't directly available in the game but I'd recommend using autohotkey etc. to press select 3 times when you are in third person and one time in first person. I will not provide example code.
There are plenty of good things to say about Grant Theft Auto V. As a digital creation, it’s remarkable to behold. But it also has its share of problems: For all the things Rockstar has gotten down to a science, GTA retains some fundamental flaws that its developers just can’t quite seem to fix.

I won’t be talking about the story here, or the characters, or the pacing, or anything like that. I’m also not really going to talk about all the things the game does right, and believe me, there are a lot of those. Stephen already covered a lot of them in his review, and I’m with him on most points.

No, today I’m going to talk about two mechanical/gameplay things I can’t believe Rockstar is still getting wrong, all these years after Grand Theft Auto III. Let the negativity commence!

replied the topic mens' shirts on the opposite side to those on ladies' garments? created by doll1

Men have been using button on vests, coats, jackets and shirts since the 13th century. Women didn’t start using buttons until the late 18th to early 19th century. At that time, buttons were very costly; only Royalty and the very wealthy could afford such a fashion novelty.

Most people are right handed. Men have always dressed themselves, so the buttons have always been on the right. The Royalty and Aristocracy had maids to help dress the Ladies, so the buttons were on the left, so that the person doing up the buttons, facing the lady, had them on the right.

replied the topic are we in the sky too? created by zoolo

The five brightest planets - Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn - have been known since ancient times and can easily be seen with the naked eye if one knows when and where to look. They are visible for much of the year, except for short periods of time when they are too close to the Sun to observe. All of the planets will not normally be visible on a single night, however.

Jupiter shone in the constellation of Libra on 29th January 2006. Scorpius is to the lower left, dominated by its brightest star, the orange-red Antares. Other selected stars are also labelled (click for full-screen photo)

Jupiter, Libra and Scorpius At First Light
Jupiter was in the constellation of Libra when this photo was taken at dawn in January 2006. Jupiter - the bright white 'star' visible towards the upper right - then shone at an apparent magnitude of -2.0, outshining all of the stars in its vicinity. Near the horizon, the clouds glow orange, reflecting the streetlights of a distant town (Move your cursor over the image - or click here - to identify Jupiter and the constellations, and click for a full-screen picture).
The planets can be distinguished from the stars because their position changes slightly against the background stars from one night to the next, and their brightness varies in a regular cycle over a period of time. Stars are so distant that they appear as points of light in the night sky, and they appear to twinkle (or scintillate) because of turbulence in the Earth's atmosphere. Even in the largest Earthbound telescopes, a star appears as little more than a point of light. The naked eye planets, on the other hand, are close enough to the Earth to form a sizeable (but nonetheless tiny) disk in the night sky and consequently, when they are well above the horizon, the planets shine with a more steady light than the stars. Of the brighter planets, only Saturn and Mars are ever likely to be mistaken for ordinary stars - but only during their dimmer, more distant periods.

replied the topic why is the lather on your head always white? created by beauty1

This is complicated because there are lots of things going on and how much (if at all) each of them contribute I’m not sure.

I’m going to list the things I can think of that possibly or probably contribute. Then I’ll suggest a thought, or real, experiment to look at these factors if you’re not sure about them. It won’t directly answer your question (I’m not going to encourage you to waste shampoo), but the honest answer is really we’re not sure.

1. Shampoo, in your hand, in the bottle or wherever is relatively thick – several mm to cm. But spread out over your scalp, coating each hair, the same volume of shampoo is a lot thinner. That could mean its colour hasn’t changed significantly, but the amount of coloured light reflected from any spot is so small, it looks white.

2. Shampoo, before you put it on your head, is a well-mixed fluid (giving it its colour). It is not necessarily homogenous (all the liquid elements may not be completely dissolved) – but appears as one colour when you look at it When you put it on your head and rub it in enough to make a lather, it is combined with water, more air (the bubbles are formed as part of your washing motion), strands of hair, bits of dirt, and so on. These change the fluid mixture physically, and may well change how it reflects light (changing the colour). My thought experiments below explain this.

replied the topic When pigeons walk their heads bob up created by fancy

I used to go scuba diving, but I routinely got seasick on the boat. Since I had nothing better to do while leaning over the water, I wondered why I had to go through this wretched experience. I understood the origins of physical pain– an animal that didn’t realize it had sprained an ankle would likely hurt itself even more rather than waiting for it to heal. But why should I feel nauseous when on a boat? I wasn’t being hurt by the waves, so this incapacitating condition wouldn’t have provided any advantage to my ancestors and therefore shouldn’t have been favored by natural selection.

I’ve heard some proposed explanations for this mystery. A woman once told me that she thought motion sickness was a relic of our tree-dwelling ancestors. Young monkeys are probably similar to young humans in the sense that they’re full of energy and devoid of caution. Motion sickness acted as negative reinforcement that discouraged them from swinging through the trees too wildly and losing their grip on the branches.

Another explanation comes from Alastair Reynolds’s novel Redemption Ark. He notes that evolution shaped our genes for many generations before boats and other moving vehicles were invented. Being inside a moving vehicle isn’t a situation evolution ever had to deal with before, so we haven’t been optimized for riding in them. Normally, our sense of balance is maintained by the vestibular system in our inner ears combined with our vision. You can test this by standing on one foot with your eyes open, then close your eyes and find out how much harder it is to keep your balance.

It’s usually impossible for your visual cues to contradict the signals from your inner ears– unless you’re in a moving vehicle. Then the deck of the boat appears stationary to your eyes, but your inner ear insists that it’s moving. It’s not obvious to me why this conflict results in the specific symptoms of motion sickness, though. For instance, why does seasickness manifest as nausea rather than a headache?

Reynolds suggests that motion sickness arose as a defense against hallucinogenic plants. An animal that accidentally eats peyote will experience hallucinations that cause the inner ear to conflict with visual cues just like being inside a moving vehicle. This state of intoxication is potentially deadly to a prey animal who wouldn’t be alert enough to notice a stalking predator. Because the psychoactive chemical is absorbed through the stomach, throwing up is the quickest way to end these hallucinations.

So whenever I get seasick, I’m experiencing the side effects of an evolutionary war between plants and animals. Plants evolved thorns and disorienting chemicals to deter animals from eating them. Animals, in turn, evolved a physiological response to these chemicals which is accidentally triggered by riding on a moving vehicle.

Interesting idea, but how can it be tested? The only falsifications I can think of are that hallucinogenic plants had to have evolved before motion sickness, and species whose ancestors never encountered these plants wouldn’t get seasick. Those seem nearly impossible to verify, but some people seem to be immune to motion sickness, so their genomes could be compared to people like me to identify the genes responsible. I’ve also briefly looked into the role of the area postrema, the region of the brain that controls vomiting. Reynolds suggests this part of the brain can be activated by a conflict between the inner ear and visual cues, but this page notes that it lies outside the blood-brain barrier which suggests that it induces vomiting based on detecting toxins in the blood rather than as the result of sensory conflicts.

Gmail doesn't supply confirmation codes for creating accounts with Facebook.

Facebook is supposed to send you an email message with the confirmation code you need. So go look in your Gmail inbox for an email message from Facebook. If you use Inbox tabs you might need to look in Social or Updates as well as Primary. You might also need to look in Spam.

But if you can't find it, or they don't send it, then no matter - Facebook doesn't care whether you confirm your account or not, you can still use it

Comedy is more based on the feeling that humans are silly and mean and tragedy is based on thefeeling that some humans have bigger ideas than themselves. So yes, it has a point, but I think those views are only the two sides of the same coin.
Completely disagree. (Good) comedy is just truth. It holds up the mirror to the world we live in. That means there's going to be bad news sometimes. And sometimes great news. But it just points out what's there, nothing more or less.
I don't think so, basically it can be still right, but there is so many moving factors, after all we are only humans, we understand and see things so differently: how we have learned and experienced em'. It's hard to change ^o^

replied the topic do women live longer than men do? created by bhatti

Life expectancy in the U.S. is at an all-time high, according to a report released last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And while the news that we’re living, on average, to the ripe old age of 78 years and 9 ½ months isn’t that surprising, there is one stat that is: A girl born in 2012 can expect to live to 81.2 years—almost 5 years longer than a boy baby born the same year, who’s likely live to age 76.4. Weaker sex, indeed.

“Men are biologically and sociologically at a disadvantage from the time they’re conceived to the time they die,” says Marianne Legato, MD, professor emerita of clinical medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and founder and director of the Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine. Here’s why:

Females are tougher in utero
Two and a half as many boys are conceived as girls, Dr. Legato says, but they’re so much more likely to succumb to prenatal infection or other issues in the womb that by the time they’re born, the ratio is close to one to one. “They’re also slower to develop physically than girls prenatally, which means they’re more likely to die if they are preemies due to underdeveloped lung or brain development,” Dr. Legato explains.

Women are less likely to be daredevils
Unintentional injuries are the third leading cause of death in men, according to the CDC; for women it’s only the sixth. Again, you can blame it on biology: The frontal lobes of the brain—which deal with responsibility and risk calculation—develop much more slowly in males than females, Dr. Legato says.

The result: Guys often take many more risks (which you probably already realize if your small son has taken one too many spins off his bike handlebars). “Almost inevitably, a male will take risks that a woman of his same age wouldn’t take,” Dr. Legato says.

Women succumb to heart disease later
Heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women, but men are more likely to develop it—and die from it—as early as their 30s and 40s. Women, on the other hand, typically develop heart disease 10 years later than men. They’re protected from it until menopause, since their bodies churn out estrogen, which helps keep arteries strong and flexible, says Dr. Legato.

RELATED: 15 Weird Things Linked to Heart Attacks

Women have stronger social networks
Friends make good medicine: People with strong social connections have a 50% lower chance of dying than those with few social ties, according to a 2010 study at Brigham Young University. “Most men tend to hold their stress and worries close to their chest, while women tend to reach out and talk to others,” Dr. Legato explains. The one exception: married men, which also explains why so many studies show that they’re likely to be healthier and live longer

replied the topic biologocal weapons by small groups of terrorists? created by totan1

I'm sure we all remember the day three and a half years ago when a group of terrorists exploded a van filled with explosives under the World Trade Center in New York and the realization it brought that American soil was not immune to the plague of terrorism. Following in the wake of that stunning realization was a chilling question asked by many: what if, instead of a mixture of fertilizer and fuel, the van had held a crude nuclear device containing a few kilograms of plutonium? The World Trade Center and everything for blocks in every direction would have been completely destroyed and the death toll would have been in the hundreds of thousands. Radiation would have hampered rescue efforts and much of New York City would have been contaminated by fallout.
Similar scenarios have been used in movies and books over the years, but only recently have we begun to understand how real the threat of a terrorist attack using weapons of mass destruction (WMD) -- nuclear, biological or chemical (NBC) weapons -- has become. I would like to share with you three reasons why I feel the threat of a terrorist group unleashing a nuclear device or other weapon of mass destruction upon the world has grown. The first involves the collapse of the Soviet Union, the second concerns the increased efforts by rogue states to acquire weapons of mass destruction, and the third reason is a change in the nature of terrorism itself.

When the Soviet Union disintegrated in the early 1990's, it was not readily apparent that this historic transformation would pose such a potentially dangerous situation. However, the change from a police state, where crime was virtually non-existent and movement was tightly controlled, to an environment where organized gangs are a major societal force and some military officers engage in corruption has made the once unthinkable suddenly possible: the so-called "loose nukes" scenario wherein nuclear materials are stolen and sold to a pariah state, terrorist group, or organized crime.

The end of the Cold War left Russia with a huge surplus of nuclear weapons and material -- approximately 1,200 metric tons of highly-enriched uranium and 200 metric tons of plutonium, translatable into scores of thousands of potential nuclear weapons -- which can be expected to grow as Russia continues to dismantle nuclear weapons. Whereas this material was once kept under tight control, the reorganization of its armed forces and its struggling economy have left Russia's nuclear stockpile less well guarded than it should be. As a recent report by the GAO described the situation:
