Another recent creation


Companies managers are now stuck with only two ideas - making cosmetically different premium stuff and making premium stuff with larger sensors.

As I told - issue is not management personalities, issue is not enough socialization - too few people are involved in development and cameras software creation. On initial stage mergers will help (but Japanese organization prevents even them!), but in the end they will be back to square one and either will vanish or will make proper camera OS and use modular approach.

Capitalism: Facebook wants to revive crypto scam with Libra Tue, 18 Jun 2019 03:29:31 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 22191@/talks/discussions

Libra Association founding members: Mastercard, PayPal, PayU, Stripe, Visa, Booking Holdings, eBay, Facebook/Calibra, Farfetch, Lyft, Mercado Pago, Spotify AB, Uber Technologies, Inc., Iliad, Vodafone Group, Anchorage, Bison Trails, Coinbase, Inc., Xapo Holdings Limited, Andreessen Horowitz, Breakthrough Initiatives, Ribbit Capital, Thrive Capital, Union Square Ventures, Creative Destruction Lab, Kiva, Mercy Corps, Women's World Banking.

All the nice guys in one place to scam you.

The association formed to "manage and evolve" Libra, which aims to be a new global currency built on blockchain (Libra Blockchain) and backed by a reserve of assets (Libra Reserve). Libra won't be limited to Facebook, and when it's up and running, the association hopes it will "empower billions" by giving people access to financial services without necessarily requiring a bank account.

The company plans to launch its own Calibra wallet in Messenger, WhatsApp and a standalone app in 2020.

All this guys want only one thing - steal your money, make transactions outside legal field, make it only option for certain goods and services, be able to fully confiscate your wallets under any pretense (look at paypal practices!)

Best system for hard CPU renderers Sat, 15 Jun 2019 03:36:55 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 22179@/talks/discussions image

Note that cost of system sometime sis for used CPUs, especially old Xeons.

For video you must not look at this so direct, as GPU play very significant role, as well as parallelization.

Adobe products are especially known for very bad usage of both, especially bad are high core count CPUs. It becoming better, but very slow.
