Aral Sea Basin Almost Completely Dry

Timothy Hartman Re:Stop blaming the Soviets (126 comments)

Perhaps to you, but to Russia at the time they valued the industry over nature. I'm sure now that the area affected is no longer part of Russia they have no intention to get rid of farmland to improve nature in countries they no longer control.

Building Apps In Swift With Storyboards

Timothy Hartman Re:Swift is MIA in TFA (69 comments)

This is the first Dice article I've seen linked and it did not disappoint when it came to disappointing. I think anyone who has looked at Mac OS X from even the most casual development end or UI customizing end already knows at least a little Interface Builder. I was using it in the first four releases of OS X to fix poorly designed interfaces just because as a graphic artist things like that drive you crazy and it is just as easy to edit the nibs than to explain to the devs.

You are absolutely right. This has nothing to do with programming and very little to do with Interface Builder.

Apple's own docs are way better a starting point than this cringeworthy shameless Dice promotion with third rate screen shots. They could have at least had someone with a bit of experience make the screens so it didn't look like it was done by someone who hasn't ever used the application.

Drones Reveal Widespread Tax Evasion In Argentina

Timothy Hartman Re:Someone's going to complain (208 comments)

a) Their constitution is based on ours. b) It's not really standard surveying work when it is targeting a specific area to collect money from tax evaders with drones and it is most certainly invasive if they are comparing it against people's tax documents.

iFixit Takes Apart the Oculus Rift DK2, Finds Galaxy Note 3 Display Inside

Timothy Hartman Re:Gonna get sued! (57 comments)

Samsung would sue if someone sold their displays with their logos on them without their consent. In this case Samsung is providing the displays for the device as part of a partnership as referenced in the fine article and even links to said partnership.

A common part is a huge deal when the common part is the logo for the company. That's typically a counterfeit product.

Timothy Hartman Re:Time Shifting? (317 comments)

They went to the trouble of selecting The Coraline Theme. That shows they have some dedication. The nefarious threat of having the power of a $40 mp3 player built in to vehicles should be reckoned with and you have to applaud them for choosing Wordpress for their method to do so.
