Even if this happens it would have minimal effect. CC is no different than public high school...just because it's free doesn't mean anybody wants to attend. When I was in California CC was $37/ credit hr. The UC system was so overwhelmed they were offering admitted students free tuition at the CCs a...

| Tech Board|| re: Why is resolution a measure of quality for smartphone screens, but not cameras? - lsuconnman on 12/6/14 at 7:36 pm|
Well I'll try to explain it another way. Just like screens you need to map the megapixels. 10mp squeezed into a 4mm sensor is not equal to 10mp in a 24x36mm sensor.
The primary function of a camera is to capture light, and larger density pixels capture much better photos.

That's not entirely correct, unless you equate resolution to quality.
For instance, this picture was taken with a 20mp camera, and the native resolution is 5184x3426 at 300dpi. However, the purposes of screen resolution, it's been converted for the web to 92 dpi.

It's pretty easy to guess a 16 digit number that matches a valid cc...it's more difficult to match a 16 digit number with a corresponding 4 digit expiration...it's exponentially more difficult to randomly match the first two with an additional three digit number. ...

5. The "huge fake punt call" that ESPN lauded was a big nothing, as far as I was concerned. We were in base defense, sniffed it out and the guy fell forward just enough to get the first down. It was neither innovative, nor gutsy, and it fooled nobody. It was just a normal run that they executed slig...
