Re: It's not only one study... it's old stuff.
Anybody at the Reg thinking or writing about "this accepted wisdom" should read the Reg.
reasonable, thoughtful, and moderate post
Here you have it: lets consider this article and leave it as it is; the most normal thing in the world.
Re: IRIS drivers
Update to the latest Cataract.
Girls want to date footballers (you know why, ... not because they are the new role models). Guys want to look like footballers. Footballers got wet hair cause they're interviewed after the match and after the shower... put gel in your hair so you look like a footballer. Footballers have Beats headphones... wear Beats headphones. Footballers give a show of constant cheating in sport... Cheat.
Insult, be a racist twat, ring a colleague cause you spotted a drunk teenager, or even better, take your colleague's wife, bite if you want, It's okay, just a bit of anger management will do for you, cause you're a footballer.
Re: What a lovely end to the perfect night.
You kick yourself for not having bought the car stereo version instead. That would have saved your night and spared a bottle of wine.
Re: On the plus side, SSD prices continue to fall
I can understand you get memory for double the price when added by the manufacturer, but a laptop "with an SSD" will cost you 350 more when the part itself is just worth 50 more! So people won't buy a laptop with an SSD because they don't want to feel scammed.
so you can't say it's been removed.
Parallel with the financial crisis ?
Is this not in a way similar with those (young) folks at Lehman Brother that found out you could sell any financial product and pass the risk to someone else ? How well did it go ? Who paid at the end? Aren't we insured for everything today anyway? Who pays for that when it goes ok? Who gets paid for that when it goes OK? Who pays for that when it all collapses?
Re: GB != Gb
So if time is still volume divided by speed, if a Blue Ray is still 25GB, if a byte is still 8 bits,
50Gb/s becomes 6.25 GB/s, right ? Or in a real world scenario, about 5 GB/second ? And 25GB / (5GB/s) is damned close to 5s. No ?
Re: GB != Gb
Would you please care to do the math for us to show how astronomically far you bring us from 5 seconds ? I'm curious.
concept of being paid for -good- work.
So how does this help the concept of artists needing/deserving to be paid/making a living, incentive to creation and all that stuff ? All we see is old and rich celebrities getting all the money, attention, bizz buzz for things they are not doing anymore (creating) since decades. Who's in the spotlight today ? Crap artists from today and old rockers from the eighties (you know, those filling the Mega Arena in your town in 2012 and 2013). Where are the good artists from today ? Why can't they make a decent living ? Because nobody cares? Because people are fighting for old folks to get richer? Is it easier than find and promote new artists? Probably.
Accurate title needed.
Providing energy "for 99.9% of the time" is not the same as providing "99.9% of the energy".
While we're at it, its not clear how we keep "CO2" power production ready to be used for 9hours a year (0,1%)... that is, not contiguous hours.
Re: ....."allow me to educate you"
about what the "Joke Alert" icon means ?
Re: re: messed up the economy
Search for Fool's Gold.
"HP may suggest returning the system to the original Windows 8 OS"
"May Suggest" ? Are you kidding ? That's all they're told to do and that's all they will do.
See this report from octobre.
You mean ... we just wasted 1 minutes of your time because you already knew that.
Re: the acrimony between Walloon and French in Belgium
You might want to study cultural tensions in that part of the world again. I live there.
We can't stop BYOD.
Read "The more stuff we sell you to support all that crap, the better".
Look at it an other way
Was the study funded by Microsoft-Dell-HP ?
How long till they "invent" a touch thingy that can be put on the desk, without need to lift your arm. They could name it something like "touch pad" or "track pad". It could even be cheaper to manufacture. Wait for Windows9.
Re: run basic image manipulation software
I remember the late nineties when we were told that video editing softwares needed at least a 350MHz processor. Something must have gone wrong with Moore's law (should be about x100 since then) or with Windows. I know everything has gone HD now but still. Today's low end is capable of "wordprocessing, email and web browsing". Amen.
Merging tissue with electronics
So no need for it to be "attached to their heads" anymore.
Re: "Even reputable sources like the official presidential campaigns"
And if the conclusion ("Ultimately, it comes down to this: If you value your privacy, be careful what you download to your mobile device") is combined with that "even reputable sources...", doesn't "be careful" become "just simply be paranoïd and Bob's your uncle" ?
Or ultimately, it comes down to this: If you value your privacy, turn that thing off.
Re: they aren't *that* bad!
Bad, no, but to say £145 is "at 17% of their normal price"? It might have been in 2009.
Re: the kind of gross stupidity which the Darwin Awards celebrates
No. The award is intended to be funny and the candidate supposed to be dead or unable to reproduce. The guy has possibly been targeted as stupid by other people. He's still alive, suffering and there is nothing funny to that. Well you might think it is funny along with other readers downvoting me, but I don't.
Yeah, let's have a laugh.
Though used to El Reg's style, I find this article a bit light hearted for an extremely sad story about that poor (stupid) lad and his misery. The comments don't make it any better. Do we get an update when he dies ? Cheers an "Darwin Award!" ? Do we need a sort of new Godwin's law for mentionning Darwin Awards ?
Re: if we hate both Apple and Microsoft
Still be thankfull their technology and competition result in the fact that you can buy such advanced hardware for such reasonable price today to run your penguin thingy on it.
I wonder how the graph would change if you simply invert it, Apple would go from "something very small" to 1/2. Not impressive enough for an article. Lets keep it that way then.
My telly is about the price of an iPhone. I'm glad I don't "have to" change it every year.
wish you had the opportunity for it.
Take your chance. Apply. Get the form. 1st box is for "Last Name". Oops... AC.
Re: Not this again
You'd have to wonder why someone would take all the trains in the word with a microphone and a recorder. Not to mention your presence alone does NOT make you "feel" the WiFi signal.
Re: Hey I remember a time when we were told.....
this was a site about IT.
The Ultimate Leakproof ... probably ?
Why does she say "and I don't think it's going to work again". Are you positive or what ?
