How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

denisbergeron I'm a watchaddict (415 comments)

I have a good number of watches.

My preferred are the Casio Tough-Solar (I have 5 of them) and Citizen Eco-Drive (2 of them) like the name suggest I never change the batteries of theses.

I also have some Samsung Gears watches, the original watch (v700) on a normal use (ie I don't spend the day playing with 2048 or taking picture with it) can stand 4 days without problem (around 15 to 20% of battery use by day).

For me, the Apple iWatch is like other iProduct from this company: bad technology, bad design, bad software good marketing; remind me the old Microsoft.

denisbergeron Windows 8 touch interface (337 comments)

I'm writing this on a windows 8.1 tablet (HP) and I'm also a user of Android Tablet, Ipad, and some others phones/touch interface.

A lot of people in this site and others sites point that windows 8(.1) are too much touch oriented to be good on a desktop, in fact, windows 8(.1) is also not ready to be used on a touch interface. Touch interface is not only a thing about how too choose the app you want to use, but also how to use, write, select, draw, etc. without a mouse and a keyboard, and on these points, none of the windows 8(.1) software are efficace here, they are 10 years late on any others interface, including the old windows CE/mobile interface that I had use for more than 5 years.

From the article : "First of all, the new trend map features much more websites than the previous one.

To provide such high resolution, the screen's DisplayPort interface, transmits graphics data at 10.8Gbps — more than double that of current transmission speeds. The screen incorporates a single DisplayPort interface, instead of two DVI ports, and has been referred to as a potential replacement for DVI and LVDS, which have data transmission speeds of 1.65Gbps/lane and 0.945Gbps/lane respectivly, and VGA.

Link to Original Source

denisbergeron writes "From the article "Canadians believe the world has become a more dangerous place since George W. Bush was elected U.S. president and a majority believe he will launch military strikes in Iran or North Korea before his term ends in 2008, according to a new Toronto Star poll."(...) "The same questions were posed to respondents by pollsters in Britain, Israel and Mexico."(...)"Mexicans ranked Bush the second-most dangerous of the five, behind Al Qaeda's bin Laden." (...) The good part of the article is this "[The] analysts here say anti-Americanism has become more intense under Bush than any other U.S. president before him."
Anyway, who care about what canadians and mexicans thinks."

denisbergeron writes "Many people complacently leave their laptop computers in their cars, and quite a few of them have had their laptops stolen. Often, it happens even when they hide the laptop under their car seats or in their car boot. How can the thieves possibly know which car to strike?
According to a lot of people, it's because they have a special device to detect laptop battery. Does such a device actually exist? I have yet to see a police confirmation of such device. My local police said it's a urban legend, and they have not been able to get their hands on such device.
What the Slashdot communauty think of that ? How these device can work ?"
