comment How can I make an immutable Array in swift that has different instances of the same class
Your loop iterates over the contents of the array. You need to loop over the indices of the array.

hi = Hi() doesn't make any sense, hi is a local variable, you need to assign to array[i]. for i in 0..x { array[i] = Hi() }

Within the film, there's no evidence that the previous generations got any upgrades. Maybe they came with a cable, remember the times before iOS 4 and OTA upgrades.

comment If the GPS navigation message takes 12 1/2 minutes to cycle, how can receivers update your position every second?
@ChrisW As far as I can tell, only the C/A code (on civilian GPSs) is repeated each millisecond, and that's only for determining which message is coming from which satellite (and doesn't include any further information). The navigation message takes 30 seconds, and the full almanac is 12.5 mins.

@Mapperz do you guys not like questions about the physics/math behind GPS here? I can take this to physics.SE, I just thought y'all would have the answer more readily available, since it's your field.
