Americano and Long Black, are 2 coffees with the same ingredients, just different order of preparation. As a rule, I tend to order Long Blacks for hot coffee and Americano for cold.

That's how I came to be as well.

tongue.gif I'm not dissing the singers. But the song's so hard to sing that many tend to belt/shout just to keep in tune.(Akiakane being a good example) They do a good job of it, and it sorta captures the teenage angst in the song, but Miku's voice fits it better.

I know you're not dissing them xP

That's what I meant by interpretation though; the way each present their music + their voice. Makes a lot of difference... but sometimes none of the utaite just seems to convey the same or the right feelings across with their interpretation.

That's when Miku is awesome. Well she's always awesome.

Microsoft buys Nokia. O_O

Nope

 

They bought Noki'a Devices and Services Unit. Kinda like how Google bought Motorolla's Mobility unit.

 

This is to aquire the intellecual property and hopefully 'smart's of the division. Nokia and Microsoft phone have been butt buddies for the last few years

 

An aquisition of that size would be near impossible without months of pre news and everything. 14Billion+ dollar aquisition at the very least would not go quietly

Now where's the anime?

Yeah, also because Miku's voice can go "autotune crazy" and still sound amazing, like in Last Night Good Night, whispy and ethereal, covers just doesn't feel the same.

Ah... There goes mobile imaging power potential down the drain. RIP mobile imaging innovation from Nokia. 1990s - 2013. Last bastion of hope: Sony.

Nokia last I checked was the last BIG company to actually try for 'good' cameras in phones. The new 41MP camera(although MP doesn't equal quality, but high MP and tech does equal good camera) on their new phones, their support for software to stabalize stuff was truly awesome

 

IT's not that this stuff isn't availble. But it's like you said, no company is innovating on it for the mobile market.

Sigh, first world problems...

One of my customers offered me a free Intel 830 120GB SSD to throw in my netbook. Do I take it and then begin the laborious process of converting all my music down to MP3 320? Or should I just tell him no thanks? Decisions...

If it's free....then just take it and use it in your desky?  

 

Or..do you have the space or ability to replace ODD in the netbook with the SSD?

mechy, I'll take it for shipping or something if you get it and decide you don't want it, its getting ridiculous using a 60gb ssd on my desky, constantly running ccleaner anddeleting stuff, at least twice a week, but I can't afford anything else. :/

I already have an SSD in my desktop. 120GB as well...

And unfortunately my netbook does not have an ODD.

Seriously? I can run Windows 8 just fine on about 24GB...

This is where the MP war in cameras and phones has distorted the image that Nokia's 41MP smartphones conveying. It's not about the numbers only, but how you use it. HTC, in its ever brilliant move of ****ty PR, went with the "Ultrapixel" BS on one of its smartphone once, which is as expected, utter dog's crap. Nokia, on the other hand, did do real science with increasing the sensor size itself and doing real technology development with how to use said huge phone camera sensor.

Again, RIP imaging innovation, 1990s -2013. All that's left are now thin, wide POS "phones" and more and more expensive **** that's fragile and are obsoleted in 1 and a half years.
