Wow, the S6/Exynos is even smoking the iPhone 6/A8 in many benchmarks.  Although this could be shortlived when Apple goes to 14nm.

Handycam version. I dunno, the idea of Superman vs Batman seems plain dumb to me. Iron-Man got his ass whipped everytime by Hulk, no matter how mondo his Hulk Buster armor, the comic version of Hulk, like SuperMan, is nigh indestructible and his strength is pretty much unlimited.

In Man of Steel, SuperMan fought multiple indestructable villains, was punched through many incredibly hard objects over incredible distances, how likely is Batman going to 'make him bleed'

I'm betting How It Should Have Ended will do a version where the fight ends in 2 seconds with Batman dead.
The first Batman v Superman trailer arrived a few days before it was set to premiere at a special IMAX event on Monday. And what we get seems to be an all-fronts attack on Superman from the press right on to an eye-glowing, voice-growling Batman.

The flip side of Religious Freedom Restoration Acts -- as long as it's not (imagined and irrelevent) Sharia Law.
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho officials face a looming deadline to maintain tens of millions of dollars in funding after a bill that would have brought the state into compliance with federal rules was killed when conservative legislators said it would have subjected the state to fundamentalist Islamic law.

Ok, I trashed the first couple of trailers, but now I'm intrigued. Perhaps this might be better than T3/T4 (low bar, I know)

Wow, that trailer has significantly more spoilers than the first one I saw.

It was even closer than we thought.

Let's hope that 'Third time's the charm' applies here.

It boggles the mind that this is something seen as achievable.

* I hope I'm correct in thinking that this is the second attempt at this.

At least it's possible in KSP.

When Apple first showed off the Apple Watch, I was stunned. It looked glorious and larger than life. Shiny and precision…

I would make the analogy between the Swiss Watchmakers and Microsoft's Windows franchise. Both represent obsolescent technologies that are on the wane. As a result, both will experience declining revenue as "disrupters" enter the market.

Sure there people who will want a mechanical watch with all kinds of "complications" just like there are businesses that keep renewing their Windows license. However these numbers will start to drop.

I think we're good on resolution. Now go widen the dynamic range and color gamut, and let my pupils and retina deal with tone mapping. :)
Derek Ross originally shared:
 
Why do we need a 5.5 inch display with 4K resolution? Because 806 pixel per inch. That's why.
The display arms race has been underway since companies decided Quad HD was the new high-end standard last year, but Sharp says that isn't enough -- displays need to be even more rich and dense than they currently are. The company today announced the development of a 5.5-inch display at a whopping 4K resolution.

I think even on such high resolution you still need AA, otherwise you'll still have shimmering. Yes, you may not be able to see the "stairstep" appearance of edges, you you can still see shimmering from pixels popping in/out.  It probably wouldn't be noticeable to most people.

I think it would be nice if we stop trading fillrate for spatial resolution and instead traded it for temporal resolution. The most jarring issue in today's applications isn't spatial aliasing, it's temporal aliasing - jank, judder, stutter, whatever you want to call it.

The difference between a game with a fully locked update rate (e.g. 60fps) and one with frame drops is very noticeable if you compare them side by side.

"In a world without readily mined coal, would there ever be the opportunity to test profligate prototypes of steam engines, even if they could mature and become more efficient over time? How feasible is it that a society could attain a sufficient understanding of thermodynamics, metallurgy and mechanics to make the precisely interacting components of an internal combustion engine, without first cutting its teeth on much simpler external combustion engines – the separate boiler and cylinder-piston of steam engines?"

We've got one shot at this, and if we fuck it up, we'll have a good answer to the Fermi Paradox. Modern industrial civilization was built upon the fruits of 280 million years of carboniferous deposits slowly working their way through geological strata to be easily available for our ancestors. We've mined the low hanging fruit, and all of the reserves we have left require advanced technology and advanced energy to extract. 

If our civilization collapses, not to say, asteroids, or nuclear holocaust, but even to things like a global pandemic or environmental catastrophe, recovery won't be easy, and may be impossible.

Irreversible decline is possible.
