    Capitalism: Tim Cook and prostitute media
    • Let's just check Apple letter written by their lawyers.

      All rechargeable batteries are consumable components that become less effective as they chemically age and their ability to hold a charge diminishes. Time and the number of times a battery has been charged are not the only factors in this chemical aging process.

      Fully true, obvious part.

      A chemically aged battery also becomes less capable of delivering peak energy loads, especially in a low state of charge, which may result in a device unexpectedly shutting itself down in some situations.It should go without saying that we think sudden, unexpected shutdowns are unacceptable. We don’t want any of our users to lose a call, miss taking a picture or have any other part of their iPhone experience interrupted if we can avoid it.

      And this is manipulation. As making call or taking picture - is not near peak consumption, usually it is very far from it.

      In reality each smartphone has sensors that are able to measure battery voltage and current it can supply each moment. This is actually reason that almost all smartphones do not shut down unexpectedly despite aging batteries.

      Yet none of media actually clearly underlined this. None of the media told you that somehow tablets with same aging batteries had been excluded from this "improvements" and nothing happened, no sudden switching off.

      About a year ago in iOS 10.2.1, we delivered a software update that improves power management during peak workloads to avoid unexpected shutdowns on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone SE. With the update, iOS dynamically manages the maximum performance of some system components when needed to prevent a shutdown. While these changes may go unnoticed, in some cases users may experience longer launch times for apps and other reductions in performance.

      At first, independent test showed that it has nothing "dynamic" in it. Actually all it uses is the battery manufacturing date and slows down processor despite any actual battery state.

      We now believe that another contributor to these user experiences is the continued chemical aging of the batteries in older iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s devices, many of which are still running on their original batteries.

      And this is just blatant false.

      Apple is reducing the price of an out-of-warranty iPhone battery replacement by $50 — from $79 to $29 — for anyone with an iPhone 6 or later whose battery needs to be replaced, available worldwide through December 2018. Details will be provided soon on apple.com.

      So, at first Apple just offered a strange way - replace older batteries and hence our performance degrading code will temporary make your older phone faster again. But, please, pay us money for this. Actually this is criminal behavior. Again - none of prostitute media told you this. They all prized this, instead of telling you how inflated was battery replacement price before (as now Apple just made it as average price on the market).

      Early in 2018, we will issue an iOS software update with new features that give users more visibility into the health of their iPhone’s battery, so they can see for themselves if its condition is affecting performance.

      At the time of letter they did not wanted to give you ability to turn it off. And media again had no complains.

      Why all this prostitutes were on Apple side? Well, because Apple finance them, provide them phones, invites, inside information. And if they told you truth and written proper response - it mean that Apple won't longer do it for them.

      Due to lawsuits Tim was forced to tell that they will provide some way to switch slowdown off, but, of course it'll be deep inside and with big red warning to never ever do it. And, of course, Apple will do some nasty code changes to introduce sudden shutdowns in this mode :-)

      Big number of Chinese scammers convert number to money. So they will have something to show to family during Lunar NY.

    Smartphone Spectrometers
    • "Smartphones are playing an increasing role in the sciences, owing to the ubiquitous proliferation of these devices, their relatively low cost, increasing processing power and their suitability for integrated data acquisition and processing in a ‘lab in a phone’ capacity. There is furthermore the potential to deploy these units as nodes within Internet of Things architectures, enabling massive networked data capture. Hitherto, considerable attention has been focused on imaging applications of these devices. However, within just the last few years, another possibility has emerged: to use smartphones as a means of capturing spectra, mostly by coupling various classes of fore-optics to these units with data capture achieved using the smartphone camera. These highly novel approaches have the potential to become widely adopted across a broad range of scientific e.g., biomedical, chemical and agricultural application areas. In this review, we detail the exciting recent development of smartphone spectrometer hardware, in addition to covering applications to which these units have been deployed, hitherto. The paper also points forward to the potentially highly influential impacts that such units could have on the sciences in the coming decades."

    Scammers stand behind Bitcoin rise in 2013
    • image

      We identify and analyze the impact of suspicious trading activity (STA) on the Mt. Gox Bitcoin currency exchange between February and November 2013. We discuss two distinct STA periods in which approximately 600,000 bitcoins (BTC) valued at $188 million were acquired by agents who did not pay for the bitcoins. During the second period, the USD-BTC exchange rate rose by an average of $20 at Mt. Gox on days when suspicious trades took place, compared to a slight decline on days without suspicious activity. Based on rigorous analysis with extensive robustness checks, we conclude that the suspicious trading activity caused the unprecedented spike in the USD-BTC exchange rate in late 2013, when the rate jumped from around $150 to more than $1,000 in two months.

    Youtube - New Channels not Welcome
    • Back in April of 2017, we set a YPP eligibility requirement of 10,000 lifetime views. While that threshold provided more information to determine whether a channel followed our community guidelines and policies, it’s been clear over the last few months that we need a higher standard.

      Starting today we’re changing the eligibility requirement for monetization to 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers. We’ve arrived at these new thresholds after thorough analysis and conversations with creators like you. They will allow us to significantly improve our ability to identify creators who contribute positively to the community and help drive more ad revenue to them (and away from bad actors). These higher standards will also help us prevent potentially inappropriate videos from monetizing which can hurt revenue for everyone.

      On February 20th, 2018, we’ll also implement this threshold across existing channels on the platform, to allow for a 30 day grace period. On that date, channels with fewer than 1,000 subs or 4,000 watch hours will no longer be able to earn money on YouTube. When they reach 1,000 subs and 4,000 watch hours they will be automatically re-evaluated under strict criteria to ensure they comply with our policies. New channels will need to apply, and their application will be evaluated when they hit these milestones.

      Though these changes will affect a significant number of channels, 99% of those affected were making less than $100 per year in the last year, with 90% earning less than $2.50 in the last month. Any of the channels who no longer meet this threshold will be paid what they’ve already earned based on our AdSense policies. After thoughtful consideration, we believe these are necessary compromises to protect our community.

      Small guys - always remember, if big media start to blow up something like Logan Pauls case, it won't be him who will be punished, it is just small funny script to punish you.

      Small lesson of capitalism :-)
