users - what is the significance of the start-up sound of a system?


there are different ways an os uses to give feedback to the user aside from visual. in the case of desktop devices, sound is used to communicate when something happened or to call for the attention of the user.as @mattobee states in his answer, a start-up sound tells the user that the system turned on. other sound notifications can be used when an error happened or some process finished. the same happens when the system is turned off.in the case of mobile devices the sound feedback can be substituted with haptic feedback.






teaching istant - lecturer in a course i'm ta'ing refuses to give feedback on st


i am a teaching istant in an undergraduate bioinformatics course. a few weeks ago the students in the course handed in the final ignment (which is worth 80% of the final grade), which we (me and the other members of the course stuff) are currently in the process of grading.the lecturer in charge of the course wants to give the students only their final grades for this ignment without any feedback on why points were taken off. her justification for this is that she do not want students to p the feedback to the next cl that will take this course and thus avoid copying of answers. while she did not say so explicitly, my impression from some things she did say is that by avoiding a more detailed feedback she hopes to discourage student from appealing their grades. my university's regulations s

single word requests - what is a person who fakes responses on a survey?


it depends rather on the motives of the person (and one’s attitude towards them).“spoiler” might work if the intention was to invalidate the survey. “privacy advocate” might be appropriate if the survey purported to be anonymous and the person suspected that it was not. “feedbackphobe (or, us, feedbackfobe?)” might be a candidate neologism if you regarded it as a psychological condition*.and if you knew nothing about the motive, you could always try “liar”.*footnotei now find that “feedback phobia” (british and us spelling) does exist (e.g.in the book, management intelligence) but seems to be used to describe someone who fears receiving — rather than giving — feedback. clearly more thought needs to be given to inventing an unambiguous term — something like “questionnayer” perhaps.

graduate admissions - phd applications: ethics of not informing other universiti


i am sympathetic to your desire to get some feedback on your attractiveness as an applicant at prestigious universities. in the context of this debate, it's worth keeping in mind that in academia, getting formal feedback of this sort -- answers to graduate applications, and later paper submissions, grant proposals, job applications, etc. -- is really crucial to signal to us about the quality of the work we are doing, which in turn is helpful for us to later make actual decisions that influence the future course of our careers. moreover, this sort of feedback can be quite infrequent and hard to come by, so your desire to take advantage of a potentially rare opportunity to receive it, even by employing a course of action that may be seen as dishonest in a small way, is understandable, even r






novel feedback: five authors share their experiences


mactrunk via getty images writing your first novel is simultaneously thrilling and terrifying, and sharing your work with someone can give even the calmest writer awaiting feedback sweaty palms and the odd panic attack in cafè nero. so i asked the advice of five authors who have successfully nursed their novel through first drafts and feedback all the way to publication and the bowing shelves of bookshops far and wide. the first readerfrom husbands, girlfriends, mothers and friends, the first draft needs to be placed in caring hands that won't rip the heart out of an early incarnation. for last night in montreal, emily st. john mandel's debut novel, her husband was its first reader.

zte cancels ill-fated kickstarter to focus on a better phone


the company's vice president of technology and planning jeff yee told engadget that people still seem to be interested in the device's main features, and that zte is still hoping to release something this year. the concept phone, dubbed hawkeye, is supposed to support eye-detection and have an adhesive frame to allow for hands-free use. back at ces 2017 when we first saw prototypes of hawkeye, the rest of its specs were mostly undecided. after the details were listed on the subsequent kickstarter campaign, however, the public was unimpressed by the midrange list of components, including a snapdragon 625 processor and 3gb of ram.yee told engadget that the decision to use midrange specs was to make the phone more accessible to a wider audience. indeed, at a $199 early bird price on kickstart






piq puts ai to work in the 'world's first' smart ski


this prototype ski integrates a piq nano-computer and led readout in front of the bindings. the computer is running piq's gaia ai system, which autonomously collects and analyzes a swath of performance metrics. the system tracks everything from speed and turn angle to g-forces and lateral momentum. the ai system then analyzes this data, down to "microscopic variations in skiing movements" according to the company's press release, and displays it on the ski's led screen. this presumably gives the skier immediate, actionable feedback which they can use to improve their technique. unfortunately, the hero master is currently a one-off prototype and there are no immediate plans to put it into production.






samajwadi party devises a missed call strategy with a 60-second video manifesto


lucknow: it is a 'missed call' campaign to ensure the party does not go amiss in up. samajwadi party has devised a novel way to connect with the electorate with a "one-minute manifesto" campaign, highlighting key points to people in 60 seconds by returning their missed calls. banking on its "kaam bolta hai" (work speaks for itself) punchline, the party, which is claiming to have made a clean sweep in the first phase of polling with congress by its side, is leaving no stone unturned to turn the tide in its favour. the party is targeting prospective voters by wooing them with development schemes. whoever gets a return call listens to the manifesto for 60 seconds. elaborating on his brainchild - the one-minute manifesto - anshuman sharma, a member of the sp 'war room', says this will make up

firefox adds the ability to snooze tabs on test pilot


you simply need to click its icon and then choose from the options that appear in a pull-down menu: you can program the tab to reappear later that day, the next day, the weekend, next week or next month. but if you have a specific date and time in mind, you can manually put that in, as well. when the snooze time's up, the tab will pop back into your browser and will even notify you of its presence. the latest test pilot version also comes with pulse, which sends the browser's engineers your instant feedback on which sites work well and which don't. we're guess that's a lot less exciting than snoozetab -- either way, you can test both features as long as you have the test pilot add-on. it's an extension for the stable version of firefox, so you can play with upcoming features even if ...






why i wrote the eastenders 'poles go home' post-brexit storyline


bbc on tuesday night, an episode of eastenders aired that i had written. in the opening scene mick carter (danny dyer) was jet-washing graffiti off of the queen vic doors, which read "poles go home". as some of the market stall-holders looked on with disappointment, konrad, a polish shop owner remarked "this is the britain we live in now", and not an hour later, amidst mostly positive feedback, i also got a slew of angry tweets. it's important for me to mention that i am not speaking on behalf of the bbc or eastenders here. these are entirely my own views on tv drama and why it's important for us to reflect real experiences on screen. i really don't care whether you're a fan of eastenders or not. it's not everyone's cup of tea, and that's fine. personally, i grew up watch...

hardware - how was early randomness generated?


interesting question. after all, it's the main job of a computer to come up with deterministic results, which is pretty much the opposite of pure randomness.in reality, coming up with a series of non-deterministic numbers from a digital circuit only is considered technically impossible. modern computers use "known noise" in their peripheral devices to seed their random number generator. older home computers didn't really have that much periphery to choose from so used "close-to random" values as a seed like a video flyback counters or "time since switched on".once you have a (more or less random) seed (initial value), a simple rng (random number generator) typically consists of an lfsr (linear feedback shift register) that runs the seed through a binary polynom, generating a new value from

people adopt pen names for all sorts of reasons. george orwell, mark twain, and john cougar melloncamp all had pen names for different reasons.realistically, there's no one that can answer this for you. and as you point out, this is a business decision. as such, you should probably be in contact with your publisher, agent, or business manager as the case may be. likely involved would be market research, in particular some polling across your target demographic.you touched on the flip side of the coin - sacrificing the potential business in favor of making a personal statement. low visibility is a one of those self-recurring feedback loops. people get pen names, so the next wave of authors said "well pen names worked for them!" so they do it too.personally, i've never looked at a book and c
