i heard it can go up stairs by itself

Tracer Hand, Wednesday, 27 January 2010 15:31 (seven years ago) Permalink

I heard it doesn't have a name so death can't find it, it doesn't have a home or people to care for. it's not afraid of anything, men least of all. It's fast and strong like a big wind. It can hear for a hundred miles and see a hundred miles underwater. It can hide in the shadow of a noon sun. It could be right behind you and you wouldn't know it 'til you're dead.

From that engadget post:

9:42AM Okay! We're in our seats and there's some Dylan playing on the sound system!

9:11AM Overall the mood is really jovial right now. It's basically a party in the U.S.A.

I hope the home button isn't in the middle of the tablet, as has been shown in all the mock ups; it makes sense on the iphone (where the thumb lands innit) but wouldn't on a tablet (on the same principle)

is this big enough to have a webcam feed of someone else going, and to have it fill the whole screen, and then to walk down the street holding it up like the head is your head

controversial but: meetings are good

big meetings are horrible though

Meetings are a necessary evil. When we evolve our collective eusocial shared hive mind we should eliminate them.

I like the old joke that the collective iq of a meeting is the iq if the dumbest person in the room, divided by the number of people in the room

wtf y'all I'm typing during a meeting 'cause I'm taking notes like a maniac as my memory is a worthless sieve and if I don't take detailed notes I might as well have not even been there at all

I'm typing during a meeting to get real work done. If someone really cares what I think then I'll stop and say something. Otherwise why give full attention to the blah blah blah?

So many times there are people in meetings who are there just in case the other people need their knowledge and/or opinion on specific things on which they are experts. You want to have these people near if anything comes up for which you need their input but at the same time you don't want to waste an hour of their time, so you invite them to the meeting and let them work on their own things, and a couple of times per meeting you ask them to pay attention and answer some questions. It's the most efficient way to get the work done.

after one week with the iphone x i like it a lot. i don't miss touchid. faceid is probably slower, i think they make you swipe up to hide this fact, because it doesn't feel slower if you have to gesture. faceid has been very good, only not gotten me maybe once? screen is fantastic.

it also cost me $1250

, Friday, 17 November 2017 21:14 (one week ago) Permalink

i played with it in the store and i had a hard time swiping the upper corners when i held it one-handed. are you having issues with that or are you using it two handed?

the late great, Friday, 17 November 2017 21:28 (one week ago) Permalink

I'm instinctivly worried that having to make eye contact to unlock would be a major hassle but I can't really assess whether that is such a problem in real life

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Friday, 17 November 2017 21:36 (one week ago) Permalink

yeah there's no way i can swipe from the upper corners with one hand without reachability. i've adapted to using two

eye contact - it's not really eye contact more just like eye direction of the screen. it actually works too if i have my head tilted down parallel to screen but eyes looking at something above and in the distance it won't unlock

I sadly returned mine. I gave it the full 2 weeks, but it was immediately causing pain behind my eyes every time I looked at it. Haven't had any more pain since returning. Might go with an 8 on black friday, but may just hold onto my 6 until next year.
