Can I put movies that I bought from iTunes directly onto my iPod nano without converting anything?

The short answer is yes, subject to a few mostly obvious limitations.

Firstly, you have to obviously have an iPod nano capable of playing back video. Unless you’re using the square sixth-generation iPod nano this shouldn’t be a problem, since all other iPod nano models released since 2007 have been capable of video playback — the square sixth-generation iPod nano was simply the odd one out in this case.

Secondly, you can only put standard-definition videos on your iPod nano. The device doesn’t support HD video, so you’ll need to make sure you download the standard-definition version from the iTunes Store.

If you’ve only bought the standard-definition version, then you’ll mostly be fine as there is no HD version to worry about — you’ll only be downloading the SD version. However, before downloading a movie, you’ll want to take a trip into your iTunes Preferences and ensure that the Download high-quality SD videos setting is disabled. As Apple notes, under the setting, High-quality SD video is not compatible with all iPods. Depending on which iPod nano you’re using, this won’t necessarily be a problem, but with the small iPod nano screen, you’re not going to benefit from high-quality SD video anyway, so you might as well turn it off.

If you’ve already purchased the HD version of a movie, however (or want to purchase the HD version for other devices), this will be a bit trickier as you’ll have to go into your purchase history and specifically download the SD version.

Once upon a time, back in the days when most iPods and iOS devices didn’t support HD video, iTunes downloaded both the HD and SD versions of any movies or TV shows that you had purchased from iTunes, so that you’d have the HD version to watch on your computer or Apple TV, and the SD version for syncing from iTunes to your iPod or iPhone.

However, now that the iPod nano is the only recent Apple device that can’t handle HD video, you’ll only get the HD version of purchased movies and TV shows downloaded by default. This makes sense since most devices can support HD, and there’s really no point in wasting extra disk space on your computer with a separate SD version that you’re never going to use.

So to get the SD version or a purchased HD movie onto your computer, you have to go to the iTunes Store and look for the Purchased link on the right-hand side:

Clicking on this will take you a view of all of your existing iTunes purchases across multiple categories, and you should be able to find the previously purchased movie that you want to put on your iPod nano. The catch is that it will still want to download the HD version by default, however, unless you specifically tell it not to. This is done from a checkbox hidden down in the bottom right corner of the screen, labelled Download HD When Available.

When you UN-check this box, you should see the “HD” badges disappear from beside all of your movie titles (if this doesn’t happen, check it and uncheck it again to make sure).

At this point, clicking on the cloud icon in the top-right corner of the movie cover should download the appropriate SD version to your library. Once this has been downloaded, you can sync it onto your iPod nano in the usual manner, the easiest way just being to go to your Movies list and drag-and-drop it onto the iPod nano icon that appears in the sidebar on the left-hand side of your iTunes window.

Why is getting high against the law?

Because some people doesn't turn out to choose the best life if they do not know how to handle being high! Example, never working, never reading, just smoking, sitting around causes health damage! But if you get up, start to realize the best about YOU – and starts to write Quotes – and work about yourself, and keep yourself focused and concentrated, writing, thinking – you can reach far! It´s too be sure that the best of us does not end up with a bad luck result in lack of information on the lifestyle you might get! It requires disiplin to live with. And if you´re not ready for it – then you better start on a vegan lifestyle and then see if your mind gets smarter and gets to the best solutions!

What is responsive web design?

Almost every business these days needs a mobile version of their website. It’s essential after all: one design for the iPhone, several designs for the ever increasing number of Android devices, the iPad, Kindle, and moreover all screen resolutions must be compatible, too. In the coming years, we’ll likely have to design for many more new inventions. When will this insanity stop? It won’t, of course. We’re quickly getting to the point, where we're unable to keep up with the endless new devices. For most, it is impractical to build a website version for each resolution and each new device. Should we choose to ignore certain devices and go with the devices which give us more visitors even though we're missing out on the market from the devices we ignore? Do we have a choice?

What is responsive web design?

There's been a lot of pressure on web development to respond and adjust accordingly to the prevalence of mobile browsing from devices like laptops, tablets, and smartphones. At first, the best solution seemed to be creating multiple stylesheets for different screen sizes. Now, a single stylesheet can service a site on multiple devices, with responsive design. Less code to look after. Responsive design removes the need for serving up a separate stylesheet for each device, but it still uses the standard practice of detecting the user’s device first.

Responsive web design is a method or an approach where a designer creates a web page which resizes itself according to the type of device it is seen through. In this method, development and design respond based on the user’s behavior and environment. The practice consists of a mix of images, flexible grids, and layouts and a smart use of CSS media queries. As the user moves from their laptop to iPhone, the website should immediately switch to accommodate for image size, resolution and scripting abilities. Basically, the website should have the technology to respond, automatically to the user’s preferences. This removes the need to design and develop differently for each new gadget on the market.

What does responsive web design look like?

The point of responsive design is to have one site, but with different elements which when viewed on devices of different sizes, respond differently. Let’s take a traditionally fixed website, which when viewed on a smaller tablet, might compel you to scroll horizontally, or certain elements might be hidden from view or they may look distorted, in other words, things users don’t like. The impact is further complicated since many tablets can be viewed either in landscape mode or portrait orientation. Websites can be even more of a challenge to navigate on a tiny smartphone screen. Sites could be slow to load, and large images may break the layout on smartphones if they are heavy on graphics.

Now, the tablet version might automatically adjust to display just two columns, if a site uses responsive design. This way, the content is readable and easy to navigate. On a smartphone, the content, perhaps stacked vertically, might appear as a single column. Or maybe the user is given the ability to swipe over to view other columns. Rather than getting cut off or distorting the layout, images resize. Simply put, with responsive design, the website automatically adjusts based on the device the viewer sees it in.

How does responsive web design work?

Responsive sites use fluid grids. Rather than pixels, all page elements are sized by proportion. So if you have three columns, you would define how wide they should be in relation to the other columns, rather than how wide each should be. Media, as in, images are resized relatively too, this way an image can stay within its column or relative design element.

Advantages of using responsive web design

In an ideal situation, all developers would come with extra hands and the extra time necessary to build a separate site, completely optimized for mobile devices. For those of us who aren’t Google or Facebook, we need to find the best way, one without piling on huge amounts of labor, to give users an optimized experience.

  • The biggest advantage of using responsive design for developers comes down to how much time and effort you save.
  • Responsive design means, for back-end developers, there’s only one version of the site to be updated. All the content could go in the same place, and the entire project becomes a lot simpler.
  • For front end developers, the process is almost certainly a better choice than creating multiple stylesheets, although there can be a lot of work involved to make a slick, responsive design. Imagine all of your CSS code in a single place and no need for multiple edits for a single tweak.

Disadvantages of using responsive web design

  • It's debatable whether this is a good reason to avoid responsive design, but as a general point, it is valid. You won't find any load-time benefit for the user. Even if a user, because they're using a smartphone, doesn’t see all the site’s elements, it doesn’t mean those elements were not loaded in the background. Fluid images, images which scale to fit the screen size probably pose the biggest issue for load-time. The process of resizing the image files for display on tablet or smartphone, once you download the image files sized for desktops can put pressure on the limited power of mobile devices.
  • Some mobile browsers don’t support media queries. This is mostly a temporary problem, regular mobile OS updates and the growing popularity of responsive design is fixing this issue. For the moment, though, it may be something worth considering.

Why do you need to switch to Responsive Web Design?

Check your traffic, most of your visitors must be getting to your website through mobile devices. Responsive web design isn't meant to be the ultimate savior, protecting you from the ever-changing mobile world. Responsive web design is a concept, which when implemented the right way can improve the user experience, but not completely solve all the problems faced by your users. For that, we'll need to constantly work with new resolutions, devices, and technologies to continuously improve the user experience as technology keeps evolving.[1]

Besides saving us from a lot of frustration, responsive web design also works for the user. We can build custom solutions for a wider range of users, on a broader range of devices using responsive web design, and every custom solution makes for a better user experience. A website can be tailored for someone on an old laptop or device, as well as it can be tailored for the vast majority of people using the gadgets currently trending, and likewise as much for the handful of users who own the most advanced gadgets today and in the years to come. In this way, responsive web design allows a great custom experience for everyone. As web designers, this is something we always strive to achieve.

What conspiracy theories turned out to be true?

I'd add COINTELPRO, a vast and extreme domestic program of monitoring, infiltration, and targeting (lots of evidence seems to pretty strongly indicate it included killings as well) of activists and political groups in the U.S. during the late 1950s through 1960s/70s.

Operation Northwoods was a dramatic one, involving plans to launch a series of terrorist attacks against U.S. targets and blame it on Cuba, to promote a U.S. invasion of Cuba to overthrow Castro in the early 1960s. Who planned it? The Pentagon, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff even signed off on it. Yikes.

The Watergate scandal was derided as a bunch of made-up political attacks and lies against Nixon and the GOP etc, when it was being investigated and media reports were making claims and so on. So I guess this counts as something once considered a conspiracy theory but eventually proven to be true.

The October Surprise related to operations by supporters of Ronald Reagan to assure his election in 1980, including contacts with Iran to convince them to hold the hostages until after the election (to deny Carter a last-minute political "win" that could swing the election his way, thus "October Surprise") and laid the groundwork for the subsequent Iran-Contra scandal.  The evidence proving this is not even a big secret (among other things, it includes Bill Casey's credit card bill during his travel on meetings to arrange the deals), but it's still not well known to most of the public despite the evidence being overwhelming and glaringly obvious.

Iran-Contra is a big one, and the true depths of it are rarely appreciated by most people, actually, in part the origins mentioned above related to the hostages in Iran.  And on one more related note…

Rex 84 is one of the least-known but most shocking government conspiracies in U.S. history, and one created in part by Oliver North.  Many people don't even realize this is a documented part of history, but it was very real indeed. Basically, it was the plan to suspend the U.S. Constitution and enact martial law, round up people considered "subversive," and defend the government against any mass uprising of the citizens in opposition to something like an unpopular foreign war for example.  Rex 84 was part of the broader Operation Garden Plot, which is the U.S. military plan to respond to civil unrest in the U.S.

Most people are shocked by the extent to which such plans involve erasure of civil liberties, rounding up of subversives or even potentially large numbers of certain ethnic groups (some of the plan is based on plans to target black citizens during the 1950s and 1960s, for example), to impose a complete military dictatorship, and the extent to which the plans remain in place today under different names and with updates by the DHS and FEMA (this isn't just paranoid talk, the Senate Appropriations Committee has explicitly mentioned DHS's role in Garden Plot and retention of the model plans in the modern era, openly stating such in public published documents for example).

What do you think is necessary for a BB10 revival?

I’m not answering on behalf of Quora but as a part of Quora.

My personal opinion is that making Blackberry committed about it’s homegrown OS.

Blackberry needs to come out and support it’s BB 10 os. They should keep updating their BB 10 OS just like they do for their Android based devices. They should support the BB 10 developers and also try to persuade the App makers like of WhatsApp and FB to keep their native support for BB 10 which can halt people from switching to other OS to some extent.

Blackberry should bring more devices running on BB 10 for the users. Also, BB should at least try designing their own device like Apple if they don’t want to produce it fully.

They just can’t use existing models of other companies like Alcatel’s Idol4 in case of Dtek 50. They need to design their own product at least which they did with Z10, Z30,Classic, Passport, Priv etc.

And they should try expanding their retail store or mode of sale at least because people apart from those in US , UK and Canada have to wait for a long time for the official release of the devices in their native place.

If BB is committed to bringing new devices running on BB 10 OS designed solely by them with promised frequent updates and persuading big players like WhtasApp and FB to keep their native support for BB 10, then it might help them in reviving BB 10 OS as per my opinion !!!!

Are there classes and resources covering ethics in software development/computer science?

A2A. Yes, there are computer sciences ethic courses, for example, Computer Ethics Course description. They discuss ethical issues that arise in software engineering including software development.

At for your details, when you talk about licensing, you are talking about using, and when you talk about patents, you are talking about ownership. The ethics involved are cheating, lying, stealing, and so on.

As to what is taught in ethics courses depends on the morales at the time. Once software was considered free; it came with the hardware. However, in a lawsuit about antitrust and pricing, the courts decided the software and hardware were to be unbundle to allow users to choose a multiple vendors. If an ethics class was taught before the courts rulings, the notion of stealing would not be an issue because you cannot steal something that is free.

I don’t know if I have answer your question about broadening ethical definitions to include more descriptive words for the ethical constraints of usage and ownership.

4 Fat Loss Mistakes Most Women Make When Slimming Down

If you’re a woman on a mission to burn fat, there’s a good chance you are making one or two (or more) mistakes along the way. I see it time and time again and yet, few women ever actually crack the weight loss code.

It really doesn’t need to be as complicated as it seems. By learning what these mistakes are, you can quickly put them behind you and get on track to seeing better results.

Let’s look at four fat loss mistakes you need to know about.

Starvation Diets

If 1400 calories is good, 1000 must be better, right? Wrong. Your body needs fuel to burn fat properly. As strange as it may sound, if you cut your calories back too far, your body will just cling onto what fat it does have, making further fat loss feel impossible.

Failing To Plan Ahead

Another big mistake many women make is failing to plan ahead. They think about their next meal about an hour before that meal takes place. Often, this is because they’re busy and just don’t have time to do all that cooking.

If you want to see results, however, you need to plan ahead. The trick is using a weight loss program that doesn’t call for overly complex meals that mean you spend hours each day in the kitchen.

No woman can handle that — you have a life to lead. But, with a diet plan that makes planning ahead simple, you will stand a much better chance of sticking with your menu. You should never wonder ‘what to eat’ when hunger hits or you’ll be tempted to eat something you shouldn’t.

Overdoing Cardio Training

If there’s one thing that most women have in common, it’s hours spent on cardio machines. While some smart cardio training (such as sprint training) can be beneficial for fat loss, you really don’t need to chain yourself to the treadmill, bike, or the elliptical. In fact, doing so can do more harm than good.

Instead, what you need is a basic weight training program that focuses on key lifts that make you stronger.

Over-complicating The Process

Finally, the last big mistake that many women make is over complicating their program. They find a diet plan that has a million rules and regulations that they must follow and then wonder why they aren’t sticking with it and it’s not working.

Simplicity is best. With a few smart guidelines that you can easily implement into your life, you can be on track to seeing superior results.

Fat loss isn’t rocket science. It all boils down to fueling your body with the right food choices and amount of energy to encourage the release of energy from body fat cells.

What is the fastest way to learn any computer language by our own?

It's too easy !

Follow this rule-

LEARN . IMPLEMENT . PRACTICE

So, how will you do these? Let's see…

  1. First research about the history of the language you want to learn.[ knowing some intersting facts about something like- how it started , who started it, difficulties faced, etc, etc. Makes you more curious to know more !]
  2. Plan ahead- after doing your research, estimate the time required to learn that particular language. Now, accurately calculate the time you should give everyday . Stick to that time.
  3. Choose your SOURCES- Remember, there are many sources to learn programming languages, you can choose anything you want, but I will recommend these- youtube ( i personally follow “Derek Banas” on youtube, I'm sure you will like his way of programming) ,udacity, edx, sololearn,coursera,HackerRank (recommended by my CS friends), geeksforgeeks.com, surely books,and many more.
  4. Now our rule comes into picture.
  5. After learning from your preferred source/s, practice immediately. You may not be able to do it in one cycle, if you are facing errors, then you are headed the right way. Repeat the cycle over and over. Naturally you will understand to avoid those errors in future.
  6. Practice till you understand thoroughly . Then only move forward.
  7. Revise old concepts everyday.
  8. Learn the logic behind those famous existing codes, starting with easy ones like fibbonaci series, printing patterns, multiplication table, etc.
  9. Always mix up things , create something innovative.
  10. Belive in yourself !!!!! This is very important.

Cheers to your future codes !……smile…. : )
