After trying to put on a brave face, CES bowed to reality with a justifiable overabundance of caution and made this announcement well in advance so that everyone involved can bet prepared for a very different CES. Will it return to in-person in 2022? That will depend entirely on how successful the virtual 2021 show is perceived by CTA.
This is a big, brave move by these retailers to make the decision to forgo the biggest sales weekend of the year (Dave corrected me and pointed out they are only closed on Thanksgiving Day. Too much wishful thinking on my part) in favour of customer safety. It’s only July so they could still change their minds though. It will be interesting to see if retailers like Best Buy and Apple follow suit.
This will be an interesting report if only because this will be Apple’s first full quarter under the pandemic. They did well during the last quarter but don’t expect huge blockbuster numbers this time around. They will still have sold millions of products and earned billions of dollars though. I think they’ll be OK.
In honour of “30 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act”, give a thought to the things, big and small, many of us take for granted and how people like this young woman persevere.
Béla Films: After seeing an edit by Gugga Leunnam on the marvel subreddit, I took my shot at making my own type of match cut edit. I did not at all realize the absolute mess and time commitment I was … Continued
Very odd to not see this released on the official Apple TV+ YouTube channel as of this writing. I watched the first season and, while I don’t think it rose to the level of great TV, I’m still looking forward to season 2.
As the article says, outsourcing is the norm so, in the long run, this is unlikely to hurt Intel significantly. It will be their delays in production that hurt them.
The examples of what the service offers are incredible. If you’ve got old, sepia-toned, poor quality photos, the photo enhancer does an amazing job of bringing out long lost details in the shots. You’ll see pictures of your great-grandparents in ways you never thought possible.
Great idea but why isn’t this a nationwide law as it is in some third world countries?
I think this is really interesting in an entirely “thought experiment” kind of way. I do believe there is “alien life” out there but do I believe they’ve visited Earth? No. How about you?
Lewis was an important figure in the American Civil Rights Movement and this is a documentary everyone should watch.
Many of us lusted after the Cube – maybe less so when all the issues surrounding it became apparent but nonetheless, like the Twentieth Anniversary Mac, it was less a computer and more of a design statement and a way to show off your cool factor.
There’s not much familiar here but if you’ve already watched everything on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, Hulu, Apple TV+, Peacock, etc, maybe you can find something watchable.
As always, Mogull writes well and in-depth while not being nearly as techy or geeky as the subject warrants. It’s a good read if you have any interest in this kind of program.
Like a lot of people since the beginning of (waves hands around) all of this, we’ve been watching a lot more streaming stuff. The user experience is uniformly awful.
There’s an argument to be made for the fact that until contact tracing is widespread, we won’t get a handle on this pandemic. This patchwork of (non)efforts isn’t helping.
This past Sunday. 3rd gear. 150kmh (93mph). Leaned over 54 degrees. The rear tire of the motorcycle loses traction, slides out from under him and then suddenly regains grip, causing the dreaded “high side” crash.
There’s no telling how quickly it will fade from view so get out and see it as soon as you can.
I remember having my spidey senses tingle last year with these awards so I did some digging into it.
It’s hard to overstate the seismic shift the MP3 created in the music industry.
How soon do you think it will be before we see some developer release “benchmarks” for this iPhone? Thanks to Rich Mogull for the link.
This is Apple “softening the ground” ahead of Cook’s appearance before the House Judiciary Committee along with chief executives from Amazon, Facebook, and Google.
I used Gopher. In related news, I’m old.
How this plays out will be interesting but as Snell says, it’s a mortal lock they will be faster than their equivalent Intel counterparts.
I don’t know if it’s everything you need to know but there is a lot of information here.
I’ve been a beta tester for Camo for a couple of weeks and, while it works mostly as advertised, $40/year to rent camera software seems steep for personal use considering simply plugging your iPhone into your Mac via USB and using the latest version of QuickTime accomplishes the same thing for free.
Fascinating story about one of the most important border crossings in the world.
Let the downloading begin.
Good news for those of you who want to spread those payments out.
