"the decision does not serve as precedent in other cases" - is cited from a comment by one of the attorneys. In order word, what he said has a conflict of interest. Should we really take that comment seriously? Shouldn't the press be quoting the ruling by the judge instead of the attorney?

The F2.4 samples just look over sharpened to me.

darlot: he probably paid the fisherman to stage the shot too. This is kind of FIAP shots that i have seen many times for people who seek tittles of Amateur FIAP.

Where can you find a fisherman dressed in white shirt and orange pants?

All the performance gains will be offset by the Meltdown fix.

It would be a good choice for high school Physics' Textbook cover.

rogerstpierre: Since DPR deleted one of my previous post, I’ll ask again. What magnification is needed to see this atom, which appears neither Red, Green, nor Blue? A pixel is made up of four photoreceptors (RGGB) each of which, I am guessing, are millions of time larger than an atom. What we see ought to be at least as large an image as a single pixel since it’s colour is a mix of all three fundamental photoreceptor colors. Would the image be smaller than a single photoreceptor, it could only be interpreted as Red, Green or Blue. So the image projected onto the sensor ought to be magnified millions of times to be visible! A little more explanation of what we’re actually seeing is needed I think.

Technically speaking, if you have a 2:1 macro lens, your object can be smaller than a pixel and still occupy a full pixel.

Stigg: there is great concern about damage to a lopsided tree in a lake but no concern about the permanent damage done to the maori people and their culture by the illegal aliens who dropped in uninvited and were never deported. this exceedingly pretentious concern about "the environment" or some symbol of it is pure hypocrisy when there isn't equal or greater concern about a people losing their homeland to illegal aliens. the name of that homeland in this case is aotearoa. new zealand is merely a name chosen by the illegal aliens.

Never said that. But since you asked, the killing is justified by the person who carry it out but the rest of the world do not agree and they will stop it. In the end, it is the strongest making the call. If the NZ natives are the true owner of their land, the rest of the the NZ and the world would recognize it. They don't.

That's the way human history is written. If you don't agree, you can eliminate yourself from the gene pool and return the land to chickens. Their ancestors roam the land long before us human.

Illegal aliens! Deporting them?! Jeez, do you understand who is in charge? Don't you think the natives claim their land by killing some other tribes? Invaders are only invaders if they lose. The natives don't have rights to their land because their ancestors handed over their land in exchange for their live.

Oh yeah? How about unauthorized access to roof top? How about the risk of injuring someone on the ground? How about the mess that he left on the ground?

The issue is you need the devices to support it. Which means new TVs/monitors/receivers and new players. Simply buying an $100 HDMI 2.1 cable won't do jack.

Many 4K TVs can't even handle 4K at 60fps under old HDMI standard.

Jura S: If it works the same way as their "shake reduction" ...
Well, I guess this one was too optimistic.

I was thinking exactly the same thing. Maybe this is one of their 'synthetic cloak'

I bet hackers will be exploding it to speed up finding nude photos once they compromised a phone or computer.

joe6pack: No HDMI? (No mini-DisplayPort)

The adapters don't work as well as native connectors like mini-HDMI. Sometimes the display does not get detected when plugged in. Some does not work during boot.

This is quite common compatibility problem for cutting edge technology. I have seen it with earlier HDMI and Bluetooth (still an issue today).

joe6pack: No HDMI? (No mini-DisplayPort)

I have USB-C to HDMI adapters and they don't work very well. The worst being the Apple Multiport Adapter. Having said that, I really hope they keep a full size HDMI port. It is not all that much bigger but it means a world of convenience.

joe6pack: I have been to places with little light pollution and a clear sky. I would go out on a limp and say that all those photos and videos are lies. Milky way isn't all that visible. The photos are result of long exposure that human eyes aren't capable of.

Yes, even if naked eyes, it is beautiful. I can make out where the milky way is but it is no where as clear as shown in those photos. See the milky way next to a light house? Get real!

... and you can continue to hallucinate that the milky way can be seen like the photos with naked eyes.
