Solution:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greedy_algorithm

That’s your basic problem. Your problem is more difficult because you want to calculate cost based on surface area?

For that you will need to be able to calculate the surface area for any possible surface? You will need to create an algorithm that divides a shape into triangles and then approximates the size.

:P I’ll have this baby on my hands (or on my legs…) in october, i hope so! And i’ll never put a apple-stick on it… :evil:

Everyone I know who had Vaio’s got a headache after a while. Apparently they are unreliable, I hope you have better luck.

@Chuck I’m done with it. I’ve used win hardware for 10 years, I need a break from all the bs for now. I’ll be willing to consider a windows based machine when this thing becomes outdated or dies. I’ll buy whatever I seem fit for my own needs.

For now this machine is best fit for my needs. My nerdy university comp sci friends like macs because of their unix bg and a slew of other geeky features which I have no knowledge of.

Anyway like I said, buy what’s best for your purpose.

Well for one those wouldn’t count as icons, since an icon contains an iconic element. The whole point of an icon is to cross language barriers and remove the need for labeling.

That technicality aside, those graphics would be considered individual graphics since there’s an actual “construction” (for lack of a better term) difference in the graphic.

Let’s say you have “save 10%”…”Save 40%” icons, but each icon would be provided in five different color schemes, then we wouldn’t count the color schemes as individual elements because that’s taking the same element and flipping the hue.

It’s a pretty new rule. Besides we mean 100 unique icons.
So if i had a sale icon and i had different versions e.g. 10%, 20% 30% it will just count as one

What do you mean by “10%, 20%, 30%”?

get a pc :-)

Edit: Btw I have never had a single issue from Vista to Win 7, why do you mac user blame it so much ? Checking window update and backing up every week are just simple task to keep the system stable.

Speaking of hardware you can get a monster PC with way cheaper price than a Mac pro.

I blame it because I’ve had way too many issues with vista on my own computer and on others. The pinnacle was when my internet connection kept dropping, after a ton of research on the web the conclusion was that there was no solution other than formatting the system. That’s one business day gone and a whole lot of time spending time looking for a fix.

And my updates are always set to autoupdate.

I’ve spent 10 years working with windows, I have my grudges against it.

Icons have a max cap of 100 icons per pack, so that shouldn’t had been approved in the first place.

Anyway: We reward quality, quantity and diversity in formats (vector/raster formats).

Color variations do not count as extra icons. So maybe you had 152 icons but there were color variations.
There are plenty of icon set over 100 on this site, i don’t think 100 is always enough

It’s a pretty new rule. Besides we mean 100 unique icons.

Speaking about hardcore gamers and mac pros or any apple products in the same sentence is just awkward. There is no such thing. :)

Can’t argue there.

If you get a mac you get:

– Superior screen to just about any other laptop out there.
– Great battery life
– An OS that barely has any issues and has a slew of tools to automate tasks such as defrag. Basically you can spend way more timing working and way less time fixing things.

However with the advent on Win 7 I can’t be held responsible for the above claim because I do not know what Win 7 is capable of.

So the question is, what do you want to do?

If you are going to use it for work like cgi, then no. For one CG requires a tough machine (a la mac pro or a pimped up workstation). Secondly, Mac does not have a lot of cg package support. You can run windows on a mac but why the eff do you want a mbp if you’re going to use windows? The OS is the main selling point.

The Macbook Air isn’t really worth it imo. Too small, underpowered, no drive (not that I ever use one these days LOL ). I see the macbook air as a fashion accessory or some kind of alternative to a windows or linux netbook.

I love my mbp because I use OS X all the friggin time. I use PS, AI, INDD and I never ever switch to windows. I don’t have AV software bogging me down, I don’t have issues with the system AT ALL . No faulty internet connections, no errors, nothing.

Hardware: Yes mbp’s heat up. But you can remedy the issue by undervolting and controlling the fans.

Mbp’s are worth the cost if you plan to use OS X and if you value the points I mentioned earlier. A lot of people fail to account for the time you spend fixing windows bugs now and again or having your system crash on you. I don’t have that anymore, this machine has made me more efficient. For that, it’s worth the 2k euros I paid.

I’d recommend using a macbook pro/imac if you are a professional who uses os x compatible products or if you are a non-professional user who can afford the system and does not want to or is unable to troubleshoot windows issues.

If you are a HARDCORE gamer, you will need to dish out for a mac pro, which isn’t worth it imo.

I take it this works for iOS4 on any device? Not just iPhone 4 specific?
