The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 11

post #151 of 21419

Has anyone noticed that pressing the quote button pulls the most recent edited version of a post, even if the post hasn't been refreshed on your page with an edit? That actually startles me.

Well for one thing, Apple did not go with the MP war. Nokia slightly did it properly since they use OMG huge sensor, but that's not hip right now. It is in fact very large for my orangutan fingers. I'm glad at least they kept with a 8MP sensor, and I'm sure they're as stunning, if not more than what the 4S can do.

I agree though that a flamewar about an iPhone on this thread is unfit, so lets be civil about it.

Hm. Relevant to my interests as a cable builder more than as an Apple customer: The new connector is confirmed. No point in hacking it for portable audio (in the way I can make LODs from the older iPod connector) because it's all digital.

I will continue using a four year old iPod for my portable audio, so this doesn't really affect me as an Apple customer.

Link for it. http://www.theverge.com/2012/9/12/3319764/iphone-5-lightning-dock-connector-design

What does it mean for this niche market now that it's all digital?


EDIT: the comments there are both smartly funny and idiotic at the same time.

Aye!

 

I'm glad that the MP wars have calmed down a little across most companies. The Ghz wars for CPU's has more or less petered out as well. (Though I guess competition in the CPU space is a bit dismal now.) I can't stand the frame interpolation Hz wars on TV's either.

It probably means DACS DACS DACS I guess.

I don't know. Not sure anybody does, not even Apple. Adaptors will be available, so I imagine the short-term option is going to be phone->Lightning->LOD->amp.

It would be nice, actually, if Apple opens the digital data communications to make it easier for third parties to get the digital audio stream without licensing. That and a pony.

Lol, Siri's reply to being asked for a movie recommendation now contains, "That was a very subjective question [User]".

Awesome! I am going to go to my nearest apple store and start bragging about how android is better than IOS.very_evil_smiley.gif

Just don't drift into sparkle dog territory by going overboard on the whole just-took-MDMA-and-drank-a-glowstick-at-a-rave color pallet.

 

I think that if I just completely make it up I'll loose the smug sense of moral (and intellectual) superiority.  OTOH I could go with this.  It's pretty much sparkle dog all by itself but predates it...

For extant animals, okapi rank high on the has-to-be-a-photoshop scale.

 

 

They look like someone copy-pasted a zebra's ass on to a deer but they're actually most closely related to giraffes.

 

Maybe a civet?  A little bit unusual.

 

 

Those looking for something cute but unusual could go with a red panda.

 

 

Or a sugar glider...

"... including the ability to automatically send an SMS back when you can't take a call."

 

Okay, pack it up. I don't need to hear anymore. I'll take three.

Wow, just think of all those really cr@ppy ipod dock/speaker units that will have to be updated for the new connector. The shelf stockers at BestBuy and Frys are going to be busy!

Ugh, you're right. I'll need to get a new bedside dock. I don't think just using an adaptor is going to cut it considering that the whole thing is taller now too.

 

Still, I like buying docks.

 

Edit: Yes, I'm aware that I sound like a shill now. I'm just going to roll with the punches.

And considering that the new pin is thin, just attaching the adapter to the dock and then your phone on, with probably the pin for support only... yeah, not a good idea. Unless if the dock has quite a long back support for the phone.
