Wow Power Leveling

As testing continues on the patch 5.2 PTR, so dose the iteration from the design team. Ghostcrawler and his team also note at the end of the piece that these design iterations are typical for a PTR. Ghostcrawler’s full post after the break.

 

As testing continues on the patch 5.2 PTR, so dose the iteration from the design team. Some of the highlights from this round:

Druid Maim damage has been increased by 100%
Druid Cyclone range nerfed a bit due to PvP
Warlock 4pc bonus now increases Demonic Fury from all spells by 10%
Some changes with Arms warriors were rolled back

Ghostcrawler and his team also note at the end of the piece that these design iterations are typical for a PTR. Moreso many of the changes they make on their internal builds never go live, so even though this list is large, in some respects, it could be a heck of a lot worse. Ghostcrawler is right when he says this is pretty normal; since they started making directed design comments after each downtime, this level of iteration is par for the course in just about every aspect of the game’s design.

Ghostcrawler’s full post after the break.

 

World of Warcraft Power Leveling and World of Warcraft gold are hot at www.power-leveling-service.com, we are welcome for your coming.

 

Ghostcrawler
Druid
- Cyclone range reduced back to 25 yards. (It was 30 yards in an earlier PTR build.)
- Glyph of Cyclone – increases range by 5 yards (rather than 4 yards which was an odd number left over from when it was a % increase).
- Maim damage has been increased by 100%.
- Feral PvP 2pc – now also increases Bear Hug duration by 1 sec.
- Feral PvP glove – has changed. It now increases Maim damage by 100%.
- Balance / Restoration PvP glove – changes have been reverted and once again increases the range of Cyclone by 5 yards.
- Feral PvE 4 pc – now also affects Ravage and Swipe (in addition to Mangle, Shred and FB).
- To explain our Cyclone logic a bit more, we wanted to nerf the ability for PvP. The DR change is a big nerf, but we think it’s important. We had previously experimented with increasing range or duration of Cyclone, but were concerned those offset the intended nerf too much.

Rogue
- PvP gloves – changed to increase healing by Recuperate by 1% of health.

Death Knight
- DPS 4pc – Causes Soul Reaper to deal additional Shadow damage to targets below 40% health (instead of 35%). Additionally, Killing Machine increases the crit chance of Soul Reaper and its additional damage to low health targets.

Warlock
- 4 pc – now increases Demonic Fury from all spells by 10% (up from 5% on certain spells).

Warrior
- We were concerned that our buffs to haste and mastery were enough to get Arms warriors to regem or be angry about passing on drops to say DKs. That’s not the goal. We just wanted to make some of the stats better. We think the changes to Taste for Blood for Arms already make mastery slightly better for them, so we are reverting the change back to 55% for Strikes of Opportunity. (It was 75% in an earlier PTR build.) We also reduced the haste buff from +100% to +50%. It’s still a big increase over live.
- Similarly, we were concerned that the changes to Taste for Blood devalued expertise too much for Arms. We changed the Overpower granted by dodge to 1 charge. It’s still 2 for using Mortal Strike. However, we also reverted an earlier change that let Mortal Strike proc Overpower even if the Mortal Strike missed.

 

The first expansion set of the game, The Burning Crusade, was released on January 16, 2007. The second expansion set, Wrath of the Lich King, was released on November 13, 2008. The third expansion set, Cataclysm, was released on December 7, 2010. The fourth expansion set, Mists of Pandaria, was announced at BlizzCon 2011 by Chris Metzen on October 21, 2011, and released on September 25, 2012.

 

Editorial note
This may seem like a lot of design iteration, but it’s not at all atypical for us. Trying out lots of things is how we narrow in on what we hope are the best changes. We are attempting to expose you to a bit more of the design changes that are normally behind the scenes, as only a minority of our internal 5.2 builds ever make it on the PTR realm. If the constant change gives you heartburn, that’s understandable and I advise you to just wait then for the final 5.2 patch notes.

—–

Death Knight
- Clarification on the 4pc: It means that if you have a Killing Machine proc up and hit Soul Reaper, that Soul Reaper will be a guaranteed crit, will consume the Killing Machine Proc, and the future Soul Reaper Shadow detonation will also be a guaranteed crit. Basically, Killing Machine will function for Soul Reaper, just like it already does for Frost Strike and Obliterate.

Paladin
- For Retribution, we were trying to emphasize what was once the most awesome spell in the Ret arsenal (Divine Storm) while reacting to some of the initial feedback that the first set bonus wasn’t exciting. As often happens in cases like this, the players who liked the first set bonus and not the second have now offered their feedback. I want to stress that when this happens it’s not a poll or a contest to see who can yell the loudest. We evaluate the feedback we get, weigh the strengths of the various arguments, and come to a decision. For 5.2 we’re going to go back to the initial 4 pc set bonus of Templar’s Verdict sometimes hitting for Holy damage. I also want to stress that anyone expecting said bonus to be a 20% DPS increase or something are going to be disappointed, so I hope that’s not why you liked the bonus. :)

Incorporating Divine Storm into the single-target rotation, sometimes, is still a neat idea and the kind of thing we might do as a glyph or something in the future.

Twitter reportedly in talks for video content from Viacom, NBC
Twitter wow power leveling eu is in talks with TV networks Viacom and NBC to bring safe wow power leveling more video content to the microblogging site, according to a Bloomberg report.The deals under discussion would allow Twitter to stream videos to its users in exchange for splitting the resulting revenue with the TV networks, sources told the news outlet. The deals could be finalized as early as next month, with arrangements with other TV networks to follow, sources said.CNET has contacted Twitter for comment and will update this report when we learn more.Related storiesBoston police turn to Twitter for tips after twin bombings Boston Marathon explosions online resource guideHow Facebook and Twitter mess with DUI checkpointsSo far, Twitter’s video experience has been limited. It launched Vine, a 6-second looping video application for iOS, on January 24. Although the unconventional video format has proved popular with everyone from citizen journalists to job-seekers, it hasn’t emulated the traction captured by photo-sharing app Instagram.Twitter has been taking steps to move beyond its 140-character message roots. The social network previously partnered with NBCUniversal during last year’s Olympic Games in an effort Twitter CEO Dick Costolo described trying to “more closely tie the shared experience on Twitter to the actual event that is happening,” essentially increasing its presence associated with the event.Twitter took a big step toward increasing its entertainment presence with the launch last weekend of a new music site. The site debuted after the social network confirmed that it had purchased music discovery service We Are Hunted. CNET first reported the acquisition of the service, which tracks what music is trending on blogs, message boards, and other social media.

cheap wow power leveling and Facebook and Microsoft have also asked the Justice Department for permission to divulge summary statistics. Holder has not responded.By contrast

NSA surveillance retrospective: AT&T, Verizon never denied it
AT&T facility at 611 Folsom Street in San Francisco, which a former technician revealed included a "splitter cabinet" that diverted Internet traffic to the National Security Agency. The company never denied it.(Credit:Declan McCullagh)When Internet companies were recently accused of allowing the National Security Agency direct access to their servers, they strenuously denied it. But when AT&T was accused of allowing the NSA direct access to its network, it did the opposite.Mark Klein, who worked as an AT&T technician for over 22 years, disclosed in 2006 (PDF) that he met with NSA officials and witnessed domestic Internet traffic being “diverted” through a “splitter cabinet” to secure room 641A in one of the company’s San Francisco facilities. Only NSA-cleared technicians were allowed to work on equipment in the SG3 secure room, Klein said, adding that he was told similar taps existed in other major cities.AT&T never denied it. Instead, in defending a lawsuit brought by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the company sought to downplay the reasons NSA-controlled hardware existed on its network.In May 2006, CNET obtained an improperly redacted PDF document (PDF) that AT&T’s lawyers filed in that lawsuit. The redacted portions argued: “Although the plaintiffs ominously refer to the equipment as the ‘Surveillance Configuration,’ the same physical equipment could be utilized exclusively for other surveillance in full compliance with” the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.CNET asked AT&T at the time: “Have you turned over information or opened up your networks to the NSA without being compelled by law?” A company spokesman would not answer the question.A few months later, Justice Department attorneys told a federal judge (PDF) that AT&T can “neither confirm nor deny whether it was indeed cooperating with the NSA.” (Credit:EFF)That’s the opposite of what Internet companies including Microsoft, Google, and cheap wow power leveling Facebook have done since initial reports — which have since been shown to be incorrect — in The Washington Post and Guardian newspapers alleged the NSA had “direct access” to the companies’ servers. (The Post’s editorial board yesterday acknowledged there was nothing untoward going on.)Not only have the tech companies denied allegations of NSA access, they’ve done so at great length.Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg provided a categorical denial, including saying that “we have never received a blanket request or court order from any government agency asking for information or metadata in bulk.” Google CEO Larry Page said flatly that “the U.S. government does not have direct access or a ‘back door’ to the information stored in our data centers.” Apple, Yahoo, and Microsoft have fast wow power leveling made similar statements.Google’s chief legal officer, David Drummond, gave lengthy interviews yesterday to PBS Newshour and Fox News describing how the company complies with legal orders. CNET was the first to disclose last month that Google is currently fighting the FBI over the legality of secret “national security letters” in court in New York and San Francisco.In addition, it turned out that the so-called PRISM program is not the name of a spy program after all: It’s the name of an internal NSA software tool that’s used to collate data collected through a legal process created by Congress in 2008 and last renewed in December 2012. That “702″ process, overseen by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the Justice Department, and Congress, requires companies to comply with orders for information on non-U.S. citizens in investigations related to “prevention of terrorism, hostile cyberactivities, or nuclear proliferation.”That seems to be why Sen. Al Franken, a Minnesota Democrat who chairs a Senate privacy subcommittee and has a reputation as an outspoken privacy advocate and critic of Silicon Valley companies, told CBS affiliate WCCO that he had been briefed on the 702 process and has no privacy concerns. “I can assure you that this isn’t about spying on the American people,” Franken said.The Internet companies have asked Attorney General Eric Holder to lift secrecy restrictions on 702 orders so they can clear their name, in part by disclosing how many records they have turned over in response to legal process. Google sent an open letter to Holder yesterday, and Facebook and Microsoft have also asked the Justice Department for permission to divulge summary statistics. Holder has not responded.By contrast, AT&T never asked for permission to disclose NSA surveillance. Instead, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Carl Nichols said during a 2006 court hearing in San Francisco that a discussion of all the “facts” about NSA surveillance could only happen in a classified setting. The Bush administration asked that the case be tossed out on “state secrets” grounds.James Bamford, in his 2008 book “The Shadow Factory,” described AT&T’s participation in Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program as:For decades, AT&T and much of the rest of the telecommunications industry have had a very secret, very cozy relationship with the NSA… [NSA Director Michael Hayden] succeeded in gaining the secret cooperation of nearly all of the nation’s telecommunications giants for his warrantless eavesdropping program. Within a year, engineers were busy installing highly secret, heavily locked rooms in key AT&T switches, among them Bridgeton, New York City, and the company’s major West Coast central office in San Francisco. From then on the data — including both address information and content — would flow through the PacketScopes directly to the NSA.Verizon, too, never sent an open letter to the federal government asking that a gag order be lifted. The company secretly hands the NSA daily logs of all customers’ phone calls, according to a court order that the Guardian published last week. When USA Today disclosed this program in 2006, saying that NSA was vacuuming up phone logs, Verizon didn’t deny it. Instead, a spokesman told the newspaper only that “we do not comment on national security matters.”The Bush administration confirmed the existence of warrantless wiretapping with the help of telecommunications companies when it asked Congress to grant retroactive immunity to the providers that participated. Sen. John Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), the Intelligence Committee’s chairman at the time, said the providers “should not be penalized for their willingness to heed the call during a national emergency” — despite the fact that any “emergency” by then would have lasted over six years.A 2009 book on the NSA titled “The Secret Sentry,” by Matthew Aid, suggested that executives at AT&T and the other telecommunications providers knew they were violating criminal wiretapping laws. Aid wrote:As one NSA retiree put it, “why then would they need immunity if what they did was legal?” After reading a spate of newspaper reports on the subject, a disgusted NSA official said, “They keep trying to give the telecoms a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card. That tells me there is something illegal about what the companies have been doing. [The immunity deal] stinks to high heaven.”Retroactive immunity — which was supported by then-Sen. Barack Obama despite his earlier statements to CNET to the contrary — finally became law in July 2008.Updated at 3 p.m. PTwith book excerpts.

World Of Warcraft power levelingNew Mac spyware found in the Oslo Freedom Forum

New Mac spyware found in the Oslo Freedom Forum
F-secure is reporting on new malware found for OS X, which appears to be a backdoor application that so far is known to take screenshots of the user’s computer and then attempt to upload them to remote servers. The malware is being called OSX/KitM.A.It’s a small application called macs.app and was found on the Mac of an African World Of Warcraft power leveling activist who was a member of of the Oslo Freedom Forum. When installed, the application is appended to the current Mac user’s log-in items so it runs whenever the affected user account is logged in. It then takes regular screenshots that it places in a visible folder in wow power leveling eu the user’s home directory called MacApp. It then tries to upload them to the URLs “securitytable.org” and “docsforum.info,” which either are not working or are issuing “public access forbidden” error messages.Related storiesHelp protect yourself from signed malware in OS XMicrosoft warns of new Trojan hijacking Facebook accounts Traces of malware activity detected in App Store gameThis bit of malware is somewhat unique in that it is signed with what appears to be a valid Apple Developer ID associated with the name Rajender Kumar. Though not an uncommon name, this may be a reference to the late Bollywood actor of a similar name. Regardless, the use of the ID appears to be an attempt to bypass Apple’s Gatekeeper execution prevention technology.Managing this malware for now involves simply checking one’s log-in items (select your username in the Users & Groups system preferences and click the Login Items tab) and removing the macs.app program if present to prevent it from being launched when you log in. Locating and removing the macs.app program file from your computer is also advised; this could be in the Downloads folder, the home directory, or in the Applications folder at the root of the drive.F-secure is currently investigating the malware to better determine its origin, modes of installation, and how it runs.Questions?

wow power leveling professions the social TV analytics firm Bluefin Labs

Twitter seeks to raise $1 billion in IPO
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo.(Credit:Getty Images) Twitter offered the public a first detailed look at its financials in a filing Thursday formally notifying the Securities and Exchange Commission that it plans to go public. The company is seeking to raise $1 billion, and an offering wow power leveling professions is expected within weeks. With this long-awaited move, Twitter will soon join Facebook and LinkedIn as the major social-networking companies that have gone public. Then it will be up to prospective investors to decide between risk and reward. In the filing, known as the S-1, the company said that it seeks to raise $1 billion in new cash. Twitter brought in $254 million in revenue during the first half of 2013, $317 million in 2012, and $106 million the year before. It has never made a profit. The company said there will be 472.6 million shares of common stock outstanding after the IPO.In the filing, Twitter said that 75 percent of its monthly active users accessed the site on mobile devices, and that 65 percent of its ad revenue comes from mobile devices. By contrast, when Facebook went public in May, 2012, it had just started monetizing mobile. For a company whose major product is the tweet, it has already achieved a lot. Twitter now has 218.3 million monthly active users, up 44 percent from 151.4 million a year earlier. It also has more than 100 million daily active users, and its users generate about half a billion tweets per day. All told, Twitter users have posted 300 billion tweets since the service launched. Until today, the most recent numbers shared publicly gave Twitter some 200 million monthly active users. The billion dollars in new cash Twitter will have after the IPO will help the company fund its myriad ambitions — including acquisitions, refinements to its advertising platform, or other changes designed to boost the number of people who use its service. Twitter first disclosed in mid-September that it had filed what it called “confidential” IPO documents with the SEC, a step that, under terms of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act, allowed it to conduct a secret back-and-forth process with the SEC in order to get feedback before making its formal registration. That move allowed it to work out the kinks in its formal filing outside public scrutiny, as well as to keep its competitors from learning the details of its business plans for a few extra weeks. According to AllThingsD, Twitter filed the confidential documents in July. Going public is a World Of Warcraft power leveling big deal in the life of any company — and given Twitter’s high profile, the offering’s success or failure may well influence the thinking at other social-networking startups weighing whether to test the public markets. Twitter’s value as a business goes beyond having more than 200 million active monthly users. Twitter’s “main asset is the engagement they get from their users,” said Brian Blau, an analyst with Gartner. “This is it. This is the core and central focus…It’s the users interacting with the service, and clicking on links, and potentially buying” things. Yet, there is some concern that Twitter may not be growing fast enough to satisfy Wall Street’s desires. According to AllThingsD, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo told insiders that the company would grow to 400 million monthly active users by the end of 2013, a goal it fell far short of. On the one hand, it has deliberately shed large numbers of spam accounts to please advertisers. But on the other, it also has a problem with churn, as new users struggle to understand the service, which despite being built around what were once simple 140-character maximum posts, has become much more complicated, loaded down with an odd language utilizing symbols like @, #, and RT.’Just setting up my twttr’Twitter began in 2006 as a side project of Odeo, a San Francisco podcasting startup run by Blogger founder Evan Williams and Biz Stone. On March 21, 2006, Jack Dorsey, who became Twitter’s first CEO — and who is now the co-founder and CEO of mobile payments powerhouse Square, as well as Twitter’s executive chairman — launched the service by sending out a post that read, simply, “Just setting up my twttr.”The idea of a microblogging service tied, initially at least, to mobile carriers’ SMS systems, caught on, most notably at the 2007 South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas, where people were taken in by the simplicity of sending status updates in small, 140-character bites. Twitter spun off from Odeo in 2007, and quickly became a favorite among the digerati, even though the service frequently, and famously, crashed.In late 2008, with the company growing and gaining popularity among celebrities and athletes, but still unable to articulate a coherent business model, Dorsey stepped down as CEO, replaced by co-founder Williams. Twitter’s pivotal moments: According to Twitter (pictures) 1-2 of 9Scroll LeftScroll RightDespite having raised $1.16 billion in venture capital, much of it from the biggest names in the VC community, perhaps the most common question about Twitter in its early years was “how will it make money?” Business, like baseball, is often rife with seemingly endless barstool debates. And when it comes to Twitter, this is a company that the naysayers have loved to doubt would ever find a way to make money from 140-character text tweets. When it finally announced in April 2010 that it was launching an advertising program built around “promoted tweets,” essentially paid tweets tied to specific hashtags, or searchable keywords, Twitter began to put to rest speculation that it would try to build its business around premium services. Twitter now boasts a roster of A-list partners including the NFL, NBA, ESPN, CNET parent CBS, and many others. Yet Twitter still remained chaotic, unable to stabilize its leadership, or its bottom line. In October 2010, Williams stepped down as CEO, replaced by then-COO Costolo, also one of the company’s first group of investors.Costolo has seemed largely able to right the ship. Twitter’s advertising program, which has thousands of clients, has been bolstered by the launch of Amplify, an initiative built around helping TV networks and organizations like the NFL, NBA, and the NCAA embed ad-supported videos in their tweets.At the same time, Twitter has acquired a variety of companies, and their technologies, intent on filling the gaps in its infrastructure and its public offerings. Among those are Vine, which gave it a standalone video service; the social TV analytics firm Bluefin Labs; third-party Twitter client developer TweetDeck; and Twitter search tool Summize. All of that, of course, means that the idea of a tweet containing nothing more than 140 characters is rather quaint. Today, a tweet can contain dozens of pieces of information, from text to photos to video to URLs, and much, much more. What Twitter’s IPO filing revealsHeavy competitionWithout a doubt, Twitter is now one of the most important players in the Internet industry. It is often considered the best real-time search engine in the world, and with its hundreds of millions of users, Twitter offers advertisers and users alike an impressive platform on which to continue to build its service and its business. But the company also must contend with energetic competition from the likes of Google and Facebook, Internet powerhouses far bigger than Twitter, which have much deeper pockets. Facebook is usually seen as Twitter’s closest analog. But in its most recent quarterly earnings report, Facebook announced revenue of $1.8 billion — with mobile advertising generating $656 million, Facebook also has 1.15 billion monthly active users. Those numbers all dwarf those of Twitter. So far.Related postsObama’s Facebook and Twitter updates hijacked in URL exploitBosom buddy: Bra tweets every time it’s unhookedTwitter roadshow video a soaring recap of company’s historyTweetbot 3 for iPhone gets redesigned and a rise in priceTwitter IPO pricing values company at up to $11.1 billion To be sure, Twitter has relatively few marketing opportunities, but it works hard at developing them, according to Forrester analyst Nate Elliott, who describes the company as “the most innovative social media site in terms of experimenting” with new ways of connecting marketers to an audience.One of the ways that Twitter has become an invaluable tool for users is as a place to find out what’s happening in real time. Many have said Twitter is the world’s best real-time search engine — far better than Google, for example, at surfacing information about what’s happening right now. And some advertisers have found that because it’s possible to move quickly and place ads against topics that are trending in real time, they can leverage Twitter as a way to advertise based on what people are talking about in the moment. Just look at Oreo’s ad during this year’s Super Bowl.”Any time [Twitter introduces] something new, it has a better chance of hitting than anything new introduced on Facebook, because [Twitter spends] more time testing and improving those marketing opportunities before they offer them,” according to Elliott.

Spider silk secrets could spin cheaper fibers
Scientists (and people prone to bumping into spider webs) have long noticed the stunning strength of the arachnid bug catchers. Now, a group of MIT researchers wow power leveling eu think they’ve unraveled the mystery of what makes the structures so sturdy, and they hope to emulate–and even exceed–them in a synthetic form.(Credit:Courtesy Nicolas Demars via MIT)The team has concluded, ironically, that the silk’s strength results from an unusual arrangement of inherently weak hydrogen bonds–in other words, location, location, location. This particular layout of tiny silk nanocrystals lets the hydrogen bonds work cooperatively to reinforce adjacent chains against external forces. The bonds break gradually, and quickly re-form when they fail. The size of the silk nanocrystals is important to the equation as well, the scientists found. When the crystals are about three nanometers (billionths of a meter), the material is ultra-strong and ductile. But at five safe wow power leveling nanometers, it becomes weak and brittle.The MIT researchers used computer models to simulate the structure and interactivity of the silk molecules. They publish their findings in this week’s issue of Nature Materials. Markus Buehler, an MIT professor of civil and environmental engineering who led the research, says the findings could lead to novel, high-performance fibers or tissue replacement materials made from readily available, inexpensive elements. For example, he and his team are looking at the possibility of synthesizing materials that have a similar structure to silk, but using molecules that have inherently greater strength, such as carbon nanotubes.

Norah the jet bike: Horribly unsafe, terribly fun
(Credit:Colin Furze)When he’s not racing 125cc baby strollers, Colin Furze, a plumber by day and mad inventor by night, is likely to be doing something even more mad. Take, for instance, his most recent project: building what he calls a “big-a** pulse jet.” Of course, once you have a pulse jet, you can’t fast wow power leveling just let it languish in a shed. Which is why Furze decided to rig it up to a woman’s bicycle that used to belong to his friend’s mom, Norah, for whom the bike is now named. It has a certain ring to it, no? And Norah the Jet Bicycle is hot. Literally. Furze had to lengthen the bicycle not just to fit the jet, but also to keep the rider away from the heat. “Had I binned the pedals idea, yeah, it could have been shorter, but the heat this thing chucks of is intense, and at times I’ve struggled to turn a valve of 40 centimeters away from it, so sitting on top of it would wow power leveling need some sort of heat shield, and I think it would start to look less bicycle like,” Furze said on his Web site. “With all that in mind, we cut and stretched Norah by around a meter.” Related storiesThe 125cc world’s fastest pramStolen bike rescued with bike-powered angle grinderWater-powered ‘bike’ lets you ride above the waves The gas bottle that fuels the jet sits just behind the rider, and is operated with valves.

Samsung Game Pad pops up on Galaxy S4 site, outs Note 3?
This could soon be how enjoy a quick game on our big ol' tabones.(Credit:Screenshot by Eric Mack/CNET)During its bizarre unveiling of the Galaxy S4, there were a few accessories that Samsung didn’t get to spend much time on. For example, some reporters later stumbled upon a wireless charging feature, and a prototype of a nifty gaming controller that docks with some Galaxy devices while pairing via Bluetooth has also popped up. The controller is dubbed simply the “Game Pad” and looks an awful lot like it came off of an Xbox 360. Samsung says it is capable of one-touch Bluetooth pairing via Samsung’s funky NFC Tectile system, which works with the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S2 as well, among others. It also functions as a remote control for use with your bigger screens at home.Related storiesNext for Samsung: A Galaxy Note 2 successor for 2013?The Galaxy S4: What you need to knowSamsung Galaxy S4 offers optional wireless chargingSamsung Galaxy S4 accessories (pictures)What’s perhaps most interesting about this fairly standard little controller, however, is one little note that’s currently on the Game Pad page on Samsung’s Galaxy S4 microsite. It notes “4″~6.3″ screen size available,” which is curious because Samsung’s biggest phone at the moment is the Note 2 with a screen size wow power leveling eu of 5.5 inches.That is food for speculation right there. Is Samsung planning an even larger phablet? Will the Note 3 be a whopping 6.3 inches? wow power leveling And if so, will it throw the world of pants pocket design into utter chaos?At that size it’s really becoming more tablet than phone, right? Which means it’s really more accurate to call it a “tabone.” I know what you’re thinking, but does it really sound more weird than “phablet?”Let’s just embrace it. Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to be the first to declare that I believe Samsung’s new Game Pad has just outed the world’s first tabone. Soon enough, it’ll just be rolling off our tongues. You’ll see.

One reason Apple is hard to beat

It's a highly refined design — though I didn't believe that at first.(Credit:Apple)Apple products aren’t perfect, wow power leveling eu but they get a lot closer than most. One reason for Apple’s success can be summed up nicely in the 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina. At first blush, it seems uncharacteristically pedestrian and unrefined for an Apple product. It doesn’t have the usual Apple panache or design boldness. And it’s thicker — despite being smaller — than the 15.4-inch Pro Retina. My gut reaction initially was, who at Apple green-lighted this thing? Certainly not Steve Jobs. He would’ve unceremoniously fired the design team. I was wrong. (And yes, Jobs would’ve given a nod to the design.) After using the 13-inch Retina Pro, a 2012 MacBook Air, a Dell XPS 13, and Microsoft’s Surface Pro (which I consider a laptop) for long stretches, I’ve decided the Pro comes out on top. In fact, I now believe that the 13-inch Retina Pro is a case study in how carefully Apple calibrates designs. Thick or thin? To wit, the Pro’s thickness (though actually pretty thin at 0.75 inches) is necessary. It’s needed to accommodate a battery large enough for the display. Lighting up 4 million pixels (2,560×1,600-pixel density) and delivering up to seven hours of battery life is no mean feat. For me, the battery life has been remarkable. Beating my previous Airs (count ‘em, three) and assorted Windows laptops. Related storiesCNET review: Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display (13-inch)Display details Which brings us to the screen. And what a screen it is. You can’t beat the image detail on a 13-inch 2,560×1,600 screen. The only screens that come close are the Retina display on the iPad 4 or the gorgeous one on the World Of Warcraft power leveling Nexus 10. And I like the scaling that Apple provides. The 1,680×1,080 mode (the highest-resolution mode) is a nice added touch. You just can’t get that flexibility on other 13-inch laptops. Conversely, the demands of a very-high-resolution display are one reason Apple didn’t go Retina on the new MacBook Airs. That also was a careful decision by Apple in order to achieve all-day battery life and a $100 price-drop. Not too heavy, man At about 3.6 pounds, it’s heavier than an Air. And it’s noticeable when you put it in a bag. But, I’ll argue, that weight was necessary — at least as of October 2012, when the product was announced — for reasons stated above. No quad-core, no problem When the 13-inch Retina debuted, more than a few reviewers howled because it lacked the four processor cores of its 15-inch Pro cousin. Apple undoubtedly considered this but realized that there’s just so much you can stuff into a 13-inch laptop with a power-hungry Retina display. Even with the Pro moniker. And Apple was right. Striking the right balance, by definition, means things get sacrificed. What goes is just as important as what stays. I’ll take the great display and good battery life over four cores. Besides, it’s mainstream Core i5 chip isn’t exactly slow. Of course, this could change down the road with, for example, a more power-efficient quad-core Haswell chip. I’ll trust Apple to make the right decision. In conclusion, trusting that a company thinks long and hard about a design and then follows through to make sure that design actually works is important to me — or anybody for that matter. And it’s still pretty rare in the computer industry. I can think of one very large PC company — which will go unnamed here — that is great at coming up with designs but more often than I would like drops the ball after the product goes out the door. I’m willing to pay more (maybe a little too much in the case of the Retina Pros) for a product that I believe a company has sweated over. As long as Apple continues to sweat the details more than its rivals, it will succeed.
