jhProtominer doesn't mine bitcoin, but a precursor for bitshares.
The work this does on your CPU cannot really be done on a GPU, but the resulting protoshares can be traded for BTC at an exchange.
Do your research before starting a flame war.
You really should
Check out archbang linux. Its the best distro I've tried by far for my ageing netbook.
Fast and bang up to date.
- How toxic is it?
- How recyclable is it?
The solution to this is simple. If a certain amount of deceleration is detected in the event of an accident, have some explosive bolts forcibly eject your roof, door and bonnet panels.
I'm already considering jumping on this news alone.
DO NOT WANT.
Time for a *shudder* Windoze mobe?
Re: What IS new
"I just wish HTC would copy Samsung and add a micro SD slot to their HTC One, I really liked the look of the phone until I found it had no slot"
Next time you swing by Japan, pick one up. They are sold WITH micro SD slots here.
Is it just me,
or is that purple colour just ghastly?
Fantastic bit of kit
Where do I hand over my cash?
I learned about token ring networks in school. Useful knowledge now.
Trade show gimmick.
And who the heck wants to get wet (and not in a good way) while interacting with their computer?
Civil aviation threat? Please
I think that guy should take his little handheld radio set, jump out of an airplane from 10,000 feet, then test to see if there is interference from PLN devices in the CA band while he's free-falling..
"So a machine at either end it is, with the iPad in the middle and the Air for trips. And we'll see how we do on those file transfer..."
... or you could just buy a couple of cheap PC's, and an android tablet, saving yourself a couple of thousand quid, getting things done quicker and not looking like a chump in the process?
Personally I find it quite amusing they are running w2k on these shits (whoops, I mean ships). I suppose at least w2k is a very well understood operating system and you can bet the networks will be very well hardened with help from a special Microsoft contract at taxpayers expense. Still I'd laugh if these ships caught the blaster worm ;)
...the I phone 4G seen on Giz. was a rather sweet looking piece of kit, even though I'd never buy one due to Job's unethical business practices.
Can't see any reason why it shouldn't have ~500Mb of RAM onboard tho, after all the Nexus One has 512Mb RAM.
Keep 'em coming Lewis
Why are they doing this?
simple answer - geolocation - so they can punt more relevant 'local' ads at you and get a quicker fix on your location in google maps on your phone.
Wouldnt be surprised if they did this in every country.
Great bit of kit
I ordered one from the states as soon as I could. Its a fantastic device and I've been very happy with it. Despite what the reviewer says, there are some good and useful apps out there for it, and some fiendishly addictive games.
My only annoyance is the lack of an EQ in the music player.
Serious loss of credibility
This is coming from a man who has just received someone else's liver, talking to a loyal stockholder, customer and somebody that has contributed in perhaps even an indirect way to his own personal wealth.... You'd have thought he would have learned some gratitude by now, instead of making this demand.
What he should have wrote was this:
'Obviously I had no idea of the predicament our legal team had put you in. I understand your situation and will make sure that the case gets dropped immediately. Yours kindly, Steve Jobs'
Right browser for the job
I use lots of different browsers for different reasons:
IE for the legacy intranet stuff - IE8 is actually quite decent
FF for firebug - the best web dev plugin
Chrome on my netbook because its by far the fastest with the smallest 'chrome' - but I'd NEVER trust it with my passwords.
Opera for casual browsing (inbuilt ad blocking) and passworded sites.
The only browser I don't use is Safari - this is massive bloatware and an enormous resource hog on windows.
Hello Mr. Happy
Thats rather negative. By all accounts this looks to be a half decent product. Nokia's engineers arent to be laughed at. I'm curious what HD ready means though. will it come with a 720p screen or decode acceleration via a chipset that's not Intel's?
I for one welcome our Finnish engineering overlords...
Wont the differences in air pressure between 0 and 70,000ft have a big impact on their 'neautrally buoyant fuel'? I imagine that air sack at the back will need to stretch and contract a LOT
my wallet is twitching, but it is pricey... I'll wait for the reg review before I order one ;)
this has to be...
...the coolest bit of kit I have seen in a long time.
I bet the flight control software will be a complete bitch to perfect tho!
I may be misinformed, but...
...why the heck would you want a mobile phone at one of the poles?!? Its not like there will be phone masts to connect your call there, isit?
