    Capitalism: International Monetary Fund aka big shitty shark
    • Moreno’s government lifted the petrol and diesel subsidies last Tuesday as part of a $4.2bn loan deal with the International Monetary Fund.

      Tens of thousands of protesters have surrounded the presidential palace in Quito. Demonstrations sparked by spending cuts linked to an IMF loan have led to violent clashes over the week.

      President had returned to Quito to “monitor the situation on the ground” from an undisclosed location.

      It has nothing to do with any loans, but all to do with oil consumption redistribution, as MAGA needs more oil now, free one, preferably.

      Wish people to find faster this "undisclosed location" and make it such this deal makers won't need any location in their life anymore.

    Capitalism: War Is Peace
    • How Turkish bombing of Syria is called?

      Barış Pınarı Harekâtı - Operation Peace Spring

      In reality it is - Operation War Autumn

      Just 100% fits.

    Canon makes 100 million EOS-series cameras, finally
    • Canon Inc. today celebrates a significant camera-manufacturing milestone, as production of Canon’s EOS-series silver halide (film) and digital interchangeable-lens cameras surpassed 100 million units¹ on 20 September 2019. An EOS R mirrorless camera (released in October 2018) was the 100 millionth EOS-series camera produced.

      Boasting an attractive product line-up that caters to a variety of genres, skillsets and requirements and an extensive range of over 70 EF and EF-S lenses, Canon strives to expand the boundaries of imaging expression. The EOS series has supported many users, from entry-level through to professionals over its long history, and enabled Canon to maintain the No. 1 share of the global interchangeable-lens digital camera market for 16 consecutive years from 2003 to 2018.ii

      In March 1987, the EOS series began with the EOS 650, a next-generation AF single-lens reflex (SLR) camera featuring the world’s first fully electronic lens mount. Production of the EOS series began in what was then Canon’s Fukushima plant and now takes place at a variety of locations – including Taiwan, Miyazaki, Nagasaki and the lynchpin Oita Canon – where production is now carried out under stringent product quality management. Following the release of the EOS 650, Canon went on to develop innovative products and technologies that put speed, comfort and image quality at the forefront – such as the high-end EOS-1 released in 1989 and the EOS 500, which was released in 1993 – expanding the EOS series to cater to many users, from amateur to professional.

      In the early 2000s, as the pace of digital SLRs (DSLR) adoption picked up, Canon sought to create even more appealing products. The EOS series’ core concept was expanded to include “high image quality,” achieved through proprietary, cutting-edge technology such as Canon-developed CMOS sensors and DIGIC image processors. The EOS 300D – a compact, lightweight DSLR with an affordable price – contributed to the wider adoption of interchangeable-lens digital cameras, for consumers. Both the EOS 5D series and 1D series expanded digital EOS to professionals – specifically, the EOS 5D Mark II introduced DSLRs as valid means for movie capture and independent filmmaking. Whilst the establishment of the Cinema EOS System of professional digital cinematography products in 2011 extended Canon’s video technology to the B2B sphere entering the video production industry.

      Canon will continue to explore new approaches, building on the success of the EOS cameras and the original EF mount, which gave photographers and filmmakers versatility when shooting – such as the 2018 launch of the EOS R System, which employs the new RF Mount. Expanding imaging areas – from still photo to the realm of video – the EOS Series across bodies and EF lenses supports a wide range of users, from entry-level through to professionals. Speed, comfort and high-image quality will all continue to be at the core concept of the EOS series, further strengthening the EOS System towards expanding the culture of photographic and video imaging.

    Apple making their own swamp with new MacOS
    • Apple’s newest OS drops support for 32-bit applications, which will unnecessarily render a huge library of software and games unusable on Mac

      It is no surprise as it is major request by top software corporations. Plus it is just cheaper for Apple, as you can fire expensive old and relocate newbie developers.

      Apple will require developers to register, pay an annual fee, and notarize every build they want to distribute

      Same thing, as Apple plans to move into iOS aka iPad OS aka new MacOS X NextGen, they want to keep it all same as iOS.

      And note - demand for their cut from each of your sales will come next! Soon!

      We will have two major steps in coming 2020 and 2021 with Apple fully securing their Mac hardware both via special chips and codes and by destroying many independent repairs legally (next prices hike will follow this!).

      And after this we will see next big move into proprietary ARM cores, where Air lineup will lead the sales. Rumors in the industry are that marketing funds that Apple will throw into this must be staggering and can reach tens of billions of dollars in 1-2 years.

    AltStore - alternative way to install apps on your iOS devices
    • image

      So, what is AltStore? AltStore is an alternative app store for non-jailbroken devices. Unlike other unofficial app stores today, AltStore does not rely on enterprise certificates, which Apple has been cracking down on more and more recently. Instead, it relies on a lesser known developer feature that allows you to use your Apple ID to install apps you’ve developed yourself with Xcode, Apple’s development toolkit. This is intended for people who might otherwise be unable to purchase a $99/yr developer account themselves (such as students) — but as it turns out there’s no technical reason why it’s limited to just apps installed from Xcode.

      AltStore is a fully native, sandboxed iOS application that allows you to sideload apps by essentially “tricking” your phone into thinking it’s installing apps that you made yourself, when really they can be any apps whatsoever. Since this is an actually supported installation method by Apple, it’s far less fragile than other distribution methods in the past (such as our old friend the Date Trick to install GBA4iOS

    Sensors market: Doom and gloom, except mobile
    • image

      Since Q4 2017, “all markets except mobile” have been on a downward slope. At that time, they had reached US$1.5 billion, but are now down to US$1.1 billion, a -26% drop. These markets went through rough times in 2016 for several reasons, but were actually exhibiting high-growth momentum on a multi-annual basis. In fact, the sum of these markets had doubled from Q1 2015, which translates to a +26% CAGR during 2015 – 2017. But then the industry basically lost a full year’s growth.

      The two largest segments, consumer photography (DSC, DSLR, action cameras, drones) and computing (PC, laptop, tablets), have been on a slippery slope for a long time and are now on par with the other two segments: automotive and security.

      The largest disappointment is the industrial segment, which had enjoyed a +26% CAGR from 2014 – 2017. But after reaching US$135 million in Q4 2017, it is now back in the US$100 million-per-quarter range. A global halt to capital expenditures in the semiconductor and automotive industries is probably the main reason.
