Ich endlich den Mut hatte

Ich endlich den Mut hatte, voran mit dem Tattoo-Sache zu gehen. Und ich bin sehr froh, dass ich tat. Es ist sehr einfach, und ich liebte es. Es ist auf der "Innenseite" Teil meiner linken Arm, direkt über dem Ellbogen.

Es war nicht so schmerzhaft wie ich erwartet hatte. Schade. Jetzt will ich mehr. Ich bin schon Gedanken über meinen nächsten.

Hoffe, dass alles in Ordnung ist genial und wo immer Sie sind!

21. September Ich ging zurück in Dutch Ink zu Schattierungen in der Feder auf den Hals zu setzen! Es war ziemlich schmerzhaft, nicht lügen zu, dass, oder handeln hart! Aber immer noch meinen Hals Leistenbruch und Arthritis schmerzt mehr jeden Tag, also war es sehr schön, einen anderen Schmerz zu fühlen, auf der anderen Seite von meinem Hals!

Das letzte Bild ist Tag 2 von Heilung, wird die Feder selbst ein bisschen mehr leichter, aber es ist ziemlich gut heilen! (lesen Sie die Geschichte, was sich hinter dem Tattoo ist)

Ich bin wirklich glücklich mit Scorpion Tätowierung auf den Klauen eingeschrieben, und das alles, was zählt, hatte ich einige seltsame Kommentare über sie bereits, über die nicht mehr in der Lage, einen Job zu finden oder andere Kommentare als wirklich in Sicht, keine Vertuschung möglich, und so. .
Um ganz ehrlich zu sein: Ich weiß wirklich nicht, was andere Leute über mein Tattoo denke, es hat eine besondere Bedeutung für mich, und das ist alles, was zählt! Ich liebe es, ich muss damit leben.

Nur für die Menschen, Menschen mit Tattoos zu beurteilen und sagen, dass sie nie eine wichtige Aufgabe zu finden, treffen Dr Matt Taylor, der Mann, der Philae-Sonde auf dem Kometen Rosetta gelandet:

The clock is ticking for iPad competitors

Some of the world's biggest electronics companies are readying an assault on the tablet market. But before they even begin, they find themselves at an early disadvantage.
Though Samsung, LG Electronics, Acer, Hewlett-Packard, Asus, Research In Motion, and Dell have announced or hinted at touchscreen tablets that will arrive between now and March 2011, they're way late to the party. Since the iPad's debut in April, Apple has built a huge lead in this category--in terms of actual devices sold but also in many consumers' minds.

The category is new--a large touch-screen device bigger than a smartphone and running a lightweight operating system wasn't widely available to consumers prior to the iPad's introduction--but Apple got out of the gate and hasn't looked back. The company is selling about 1 million iPads per month and has not noticeably slackened its pace since.
The entire media tablet market is estimated to generate sales of just more than 12 million units by the end of 2010 and 25 million by the end of 2011, according to analyst firm IDC. Apple had sold more than 3 million by the end of June, and at that pace, Apple has likely sold about 4 million to date. That's almost a third of IDC's forecast for the year, and the all-important holiday shopping season is still ahead. So where exactly does that leave the latecomers?
At first glance, the chances of the Galaxy Tablet from Samsung or a WebOS-based slate from HP wresting some reasonable share of this market from Apple in the short term don't seem great. The companies with the most resources and brand recognition in position to compete with Apple are either only just getting their products into stores (see the Dell Streak) or about to put them into production (see the rest.)

RIM tablet to use newly acquired 'infotainment' software?

Research In Motion's upcoming tablet may not run the BlackBerry OS after all.
In a report Thursday, Bloomberg says it was told by unnamed sources that the so-called "Blackpad" will feature software from QNX Software Systems, a company acquired by RIM in April.

The so-called Blackpad may not get the BlackBerry OS after all.
At the time of the acquisition, RIM said it would use QNX software to "further integrate and enhance the user experience between smartphones and in-vehicle audio and infotainment systems."
Perhaps this is the "infotainment" device referenced? QNX software is used in a variety of applications; interestingly, BMW uses it for in-vehicle navigation and the U.S. Army has it installed in Crusher tanks.
Bloomberg doesn't have a lot of details about what RIM thinks the advantages of using such software in a device intended to compete with the iPad are, other than that there are independent developers who already make apps for QNX.
A solid core of professionally made apps ready for the Blackpad at launch is important. Thanks to the success of the iPhone and iPad, Apple has many people already thinking in terms of apps with these kinds of devices. But what Apple and Google have done well is attract independent developers. Apple's App Store currently boasts 225,000 apps, the most of any mobile app store, and Google's Android, another major player in the burgeoning tablet market, has 100,000 apps.

Netbook, laptop sales growth biggest in 8 years

Last year was one of the most discouraging for PC makers as consumers hit hard by the recession started pinching their pennies.
But 2010 saw a big reversal of last year's decline: Gartner released data on Tuesday that showed mobile PCs grew to just under 50 million units during the first quarter of 2010. That's an increase of 43.4 percent from the same quarter a year ago, good enough to be the best quarter for mobile PC makers in eight years.
The success of the category is in line with what Intel reported last month. Its profits jumped 433 percent for the first quarter, compared to the same period a year ago, mostly thanks to the strength of its mobile chip sales.
Though they did well, the first quarter of 2010 could also be the last hurrah for mininotebooks, or Netbooks. They saw a spike in growth of 71 percent from the same period a year ago, but in some geographic regions their sales are already beginning to slow. That's because consumers are "beginning to understand the limitations of mininotebooks, especially in the face of aggressive price cuts of regular notebooks," said Gartner analyst Mika Katagawa. The average mobile PC was sold for $732, compared to a year ago, when the average price was $868.
But cheaper laptops are not the only reason. Mininotebooks could also be getting squeezed by touch-screen tablets, which are priced close to mininotebooks. Lots of buzz surrounding Apple's iPad is also helping to attract a lot of attention to the new form factor for consumers. As of early May, Apple had sold 1 million iPads. IDC expects 7.6 million tablets to ship by the end of 2010, and for the category to hit 42 million units by 2014.
Gartner does not count devices like the iPad in the mobile PC category, however. It's included as a "media tablet" and is reported with statistics for mobile devices. That category is expected to see huge gains over the next year as the iPad and its competitors from Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Asus, and others begin trickling into stores.

3D at home still a tough sell

Even if "Piranha 3D" has a modestly successful box-office debut this weekend, it could in the long run do more damage to the hopes of 3D TV makers than good.
The more 3D movies available, the better is what the consumer electronics industry's strongest proponents of 3D would say. After all, the more opportunities to demonstrate the technology to people and sell the 3D Blu-ray copy later is in their interests. But a horror movie starring three-dimensional carnivorous fish, and similarly schlocky uses of the technology could be a setback.
The industry that's trying to convince people to buy TVs and Blu-ray players capable of re-creating the 3D theater experience at home are already fighting the perception that 3D is a short-lived trend, a rehash of past failed technology, and worse, a gimmick.
That and other roadblocks to TV buyers embracing the still-nascent technology was part of a panel discussion about the future of 3D here at the DisplaySearch TV Ecosystem conference on Wednesday.
"Making 3D movies is relatively easy. Making good 3D is hard," said Mike Abary, Sony senior vice president of Home Electronics. "We have to do a very good job as an industry to ensure quality 3D is brought to the consumer otherwise it will just be considered a gimmick by consumers."
He didn't refer to "Piranha 3D" specifically, but it's hard not to connect the dots when the horror movie is the highest-profile example of an intentionally campy execution of 3D.
"The end game is to make (3D) not a special effect but a key resource in the storyteller's tool kit," said Phil Lelyveld, who manages the Consumer 3D Experience Lab at the Entertainment Technology Center @ USC.
That means getting to a place where 3D is done subtly and in a way that makes entertainment "immersive," the panelists agreed.
