Rol, try and get a grasp of the basics of particle physics and what force carriers are before spluttering stuff like that huh? http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2012/10/10/3607034.htm
Please watch the documentary Gasland about this. It's not just the potential environmental impact, it's that Corporations will by their nature exploit the humans that live in these areas in horrible ways.
particularly complicit in this are people like (uh-huh) Dick Cheney and George W Bush who altered the clean water act so that companies could not be prosecuted for causing environmental atrocities. so roll out the environmental nightmare and destroyed communities and dead animals that will all result from shale gas !! yippee, dogs and humans dying of cancer is always fun to watch !!
Classic 'ego post'. Ed is telling you that he used to work there (well done Ed !!!), and that he used to cycle there (Ed it sporty and cool !!!). I love 'ego posts'. people that comment on something, but instead of actually comment on the news item talk about themselves :)
theregister hypocrisy ?
I don't get this: "shameless self-promotion and empty hype". the man has an ego, that's for sure, but what person in the media spotlight does not? can you answer that?
Winston Churchill pioneered the idea of gassing the Kurds in 1921 = he is a hero.
Saddam Hussein copies Churchill's idea in the 80's = he is an insane murderer.
both conclusions invented by the press and media. don't the press and media organisations have far far far bigger ego's than Assange? don't they shamelessly self-promote themselves far far more? I suspect media organisations (and to some extent TheReg has to be included in this) are maybe a bit afraid that the concept of dribbling out news to the sheep will be overtaken by vast exposé's like this.
the man is confident, but shameless self-promotion (more than ANY news organisation !?!? where ? when ?), and hype (are you talking about the promise to release certain documents that he has not as yet ? or something else ? where is this hype ? isn't the hype about him MOSTLY in fact created BY news organisations !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?)
for a drooling moron, that needs to be fed everything from his masters, i understand that a person like that absolutely requires that *everything* must be interpreted for him. what an awful picture you paint, where information must be "contextualized". who is being protected ? government lies (either they are by definition without corruption, i.e. a fantasy, or they are humans, in which case, information *will* be modified and the justification of "oh, we had to contextualize it to make it fit for drooling moron consumption!"). the vision is a nightmare: masters painting the context for you so that a simpleton can deal with the information, i guess. journalism is exactly that: filtered by corporate agendas and diluted by people who are more interested in the corporate career ladder than in informing the public about government lies and deceit.
the abuse of information is a very simple concept to understand ... to those that are not drooling morons i mean.
Think, *before* believing what a "journalist" says ...
“While I do not regard Assange as a partner, and I would hesitate to describe what WikiLeaks does as journalism". Fairly disgusting that NYT consider themselves to be "journalism". The concept of journalism died long ago, all these people do is pander to governments and self-interest. Journalists such as this clown from the NYT are simply puppets of their corporate masters (after all, all news organisations are corporations, with agendas. the idea that these people are free journalists is ludicrous at best and without doubt insulting to anyone of mediocre intelligence). He mentioned WikiLeaks "glib" antipathy towards America, but fails to mention America's "glib" antipathy to the entire world outside of the US, murdering civilians like it's a drunken Texan bbq with non-Americans for target practice (a pretty reasonable assessment of the US ... if the lives of civilians mean anything that is ... which they clearly do not to US journalists. a dead Iraqi child is just a statistic to these so-called "journalists" - or "corporate mouthpieces" to give them their correct title). what an arrogant fool that "corporate mouthpiece" is, assuming his own moral superiority and denigrating anyone that brings actual *factual* information to the public. WikiLeaks provide the public with direct factual information, instead of the impotent, blurred, biased, corporate mouthpiece factless unclear claptrap that NYT Executive Editor Mr. Bill Keller peddles ...
this was about as realistic as Spinal Tap. Anyone naive enough to be suckered into believing that needs to go to the doctor and ask for a reverse-lobotomy, cos somehow are some point, you musta had one (it's the only rational explanation). seriously, so fake, so cheesy, does anyone *actually* believe this is real ? the use of handicapped children to add *poignancy*, god, so obvious and trite, the idea of making a documentary about meeting an 8 year old (seriously, who would do this ? it's banal first of all, and a bit paedophilic. but again ! instant poignancy ! the "sheer innocence of talking to an 8 year, it's so rrrreeeeel dude", not it's not real, it's about as contrived as it is possible to be). at least spinal tap was funny !!! ;)
that's "would have", not "would of". facebook is clearly dragging the world down to a lowest common denominator of literacy.
... oh well. wtf lol, time fur me to go an pwn some noobs, enable some tripe, an solve world hungr on facebook !
It's interesting that EMC say "a 10% wage decrease" but don't actually say what his wage is, isn't it ...
According to this http://www.byteandswitch.com/document.asp?doc_id=85912 as of 2005, his wage was $1 million.
"As reported earlier this year, Tucci earned a 2004 base salary of $1 million, plus a cash bonus of $1.88 million."
As of 2009, let's estimate conservatively that his wage didn't increase, so that he's still on $1 million + $1.88 million.
10% wage decrease = $0.8 million base wage + $1.88 million bonus
so, in total, he will get a (measly) $2.68 million this year.
I mean, that's outrageous, how can a man be expected to live on $2.68 million per year ??? It's not fair, are they trying to make this man a pauper ??? Tucci is clearly feeling the pain of this recession far far far more than you or I. Have sympathy for the man, that 10% reduction is going to destroy his life !!!
@You've confused me, and @Huh?
i do high end database and storage work with Symmetrix and other arrays, where capacity is often less important than IOPS. high-end apps are often very performance oriented in banking and similar sectors. Samsung is talking to people that work in storage, not to people that want a fast HDD to play games on, so their comparison is excellent. you are both right that they are comparing lower storage to higher storage, but it's a much higher IOPS solution, so for the applications they are addressing, capacity is not really relevant. drives like this are not for ye or me to have in our workstations ... yet ;) hopefully 2 years will bring all this goodness filtering down to us though :)
Genepax Water Cars
yes, the hydrides are also a fuel, but environmentally in every way a billion times cleaner than a petrol or hybrid car. but GM, Shell, Exxon etc will not allow such cars to exist for the obvious reason that they would be signing their own death warrants.
still *rubbish* if it has no Ethernet
oh, sorry, that's right, I'm wrong, they DO have Ethernet support, but only if you pay an addition £150 for the add-on pack (what a rip off ! ...) "Pay £150 for something you get as standard on every other product on the market !" great marketing !
That should be "CLARiiON", not "Clarrion". No one knows how EMC got the names for their devices: Symmetrix, CLARiiON, Centerra, Celerra, but it is rumoured that they are the names of the alien travellers that brought the advanced Alien Technology used inside of all EMC equipment (mainly dilithium crystals).
"sounds like they are struggling as a one trick wonder" ?
I guess they would be ... if they *were* a one trick wonder ... hmm, maybe you should have a look at what EMC do ? (which is quite a lot i.e. a 900-trick wonder maybe). I guess you are part of the IT-illiteratti that thinks EMC = VMware. :-)
