Yes. The mainspring pushes on the hands continuously and an electromagnet applies a braking force to keep the hands moving at the right speed. That's unlike a mechanical movement where an escapement releases a tiny bit of the energy stored up in the mainspring each time it beats to make the hands move in discrete steps.

And yes the hibeat is just an ordinary automatic. Other companies also make mechanical movements that beat 10 times a second but yeah that's basically the highest beatrate that any manufacturer uses in normal watches that people wear. There's weird esoteric shit that has higher beatrates.

shit, what's the service interval on a movement like that?
>>
>>48858913
You take it out of your watchwinder for a few hours to show it to your millionaire friends at the yacht club and you start and stop the chrono a few times so they can see how smooth it is and then you mail it back to Breguet for 3 months so they can fully disassemble and overhaul the movement and replace half the parts due to excessive wear.

>>48858864
Solid explanations, thanks. So, I see the appeal and I get why everyone loves it. But what I don't get is why, at least once a thread, someone asks Hi-Beat vs. Spring Drive. The Spring Drive is different from your average watch mechanically, but the Hi-Beat just seems like a solid watch, nothing particularly different about it. The comparison between the two doesn't make sense to me. Am I missing something?

Also, Nine mentioned tuning fork movements, somewhat unrelated question, Bulova is the only company to ever make those, right?

While I use uBlock origin everywhere and add whiny messages to the filter as well, I realize that websites are going to move to the subscription model if too many people use adblocking addons.

For that reason, I promote the disuse of adblocks to my friends and family, and tell them to spread the message. The more people that think it's immoral, the longer it'll be until all web content gets paywalled up.

So spread the word. Adblocking is "immoral" or whatever. Tell them it's equivalent to smoking a cigarette in front of a baby and then kicking it out the front door. Do your part in preserving a free web. :^)

Why do you think they're hired? Because they had huge gpas and a web hosting business in their free time? Or because hr patronisingly believes she needs help getting a job?

Let's cut the bullshit, it's obvious who is deciding who gets hired and who's not and its absolutely not the guy who can point out a real programmer.

truth. this is why the advertising companies exist. if your content is worth anything that post it for sale. otherwise stop complaining. In reality people only care about the food on their dinner plates. not sure where they came up with the idea of paying for entertainment. especially in this day and age.

Correct, c# isn't completely interpreted, same with java. It turns into bytecode which to me seems like class conscious assembly code. You can do the same thing with python, btw, actually you can compile python into actually machinecode and have it run fast as fuck.

This kind of begs the question, why wasn't arm assembly written like that? Or at least written with virtual machines in mind.

This is literally the worst forum on the internet. I am a console gamer and I just found this place and I just thought I'd post this because it is just so despicable I can't take it. Seriously, consoles are so obviously superior, with their awesome mods. I have been JTagging XBox 360s since I was 5 and I have witnessed firsthand their absolute godliness as a platform. Through my diligent learning of all the latest modding techniques I have even begun to learn coding through XBox, using the web browser as a conduit through which to access GitHub and create enterprise quality fizzbuzzes for Xbox 360. (It's a smart person thing, you wouldn't understand)If you were just hating on PS4 I'd understand totally since it is lame as fuck and doesn't even have the massive XBox exclusive console gaming library, but you are just indiscriminately hating on every single console owner. God damn, all you PC owners are such posers! You all just pick a platform based on "specs" and "games selection" well guess what? What if I care more about the aesthetics of the unit? No PC will ever be able to match the timeless fashion of the XBox 360 and its clearly inspired successor the XBox One. Look at those gentle curves on the unit? I challenge you to find a PC with such beautiful curves. I'll bet you're all the same people from /r/fatpeoplehate, you person-hating scum. I have been spreading the word of third-wave feminism for over a decade now to my internet followers through the use of intellectually driven memes for the independent woman. You male scumbag fat-hating PC gamers just don't get that a real gaming system has curves, and as much as I'd love to have you all slaughtered for not being the true sex your true violation is in disrespecting the humble console. Microsoft is the company behind the XBox and they are the largest company of all time. How could they be the biggest if XBox isn't the best platform? XBoxes cost less and yet Microsoft makes more what gives?

8GB 290x is $40 more than the 4GB, and I honestly have no idea if the card can even take advantage of the extra VRAM, or if it's worth the $40. If the 390x is a 290x with more VRAM, and I got the 8GB 290x, I'd essentially be saving $50-$70 on a 390x. Opinions???????

Net neutrality doesn't really enforce unfair pricing. It stops the Broadband companies from slowing down connections, such as their competitors websites or connections on their network.
