Can he do me a Radeon Fury?
They only weigh in at 8.9 billion transistors, he'll be done by lunchtime, right?

Those investors are going to want their money back soon. Get ready for the site to become very unfriendly with banners to 'upgrade to premium' or 'get github for enterprise NOW!'
Once enough rich morons have been catapulted into space, paying for the build of more craft, it won't be long before Beardy opens up trans-atlantic flights in these things and their derivatives. Who doesn't want a quick trip across the pond with an awesome view?
"it's the only way to be sure."
Wrong. The only way to be sure is to nuke the entire site from orbit.
"Zamora said apps should also be appropriately priced. One app should not be significantly more expensive than another than provides substantially identical functionality, for example."
Unless you _really_ need something that only runs on windows (and probably wont run on this anyway), why use nano if you can roll out a free bare-metal linux distro with very well known and well documented tools?
This is going to be a very tough sell for mircosoft.
HDFS is dog slow. I mean really, really sloooooow.
I'd probably not consider using it like this, you're much better off with a dedicated NAS unit with RAID, if you care at all about performance.
Especially if the Russian government dictates that all government departments buy all Russian!
In soviet Russia, market eats you! err wait...
I wonder how long it will be before his phone is tapped, his internet data all collected etc.
Err, the fact that I will have no control over it for one.
Such poor grammar....
SRLSY, do you even English?
Perhaps it's going to bomb against that like its predecessor did with H264?
You obviously haven't tried any cryptocoin mining, have you. A moderately powerful CPU and GPU running full tilt can pump out rather a lot of heat and I've been heating my place like this for the last few winters.
"I am completely operational, and all of my circuits are functioning perfectly."

Been looking for a replacement for my 2009 EeePC 900, and this fits the bill.
Has a decent screen, a powerful enough processor for surfing and videos, and a keyboard for some work if really necessary.
I'd buy it, if it wasn't stupidly over priced and wasn't OS locked-down. I'll wait for Asus to make a clone with the same processor, k thx.
No, its night and more night, asshole.
You are praying on those foolish enough not to read a fat screen full of text to fund your next porsche, you and your 'partners'. Morally questionable at best.
From the screenshot I also like the bit about curing aids being promoted at the top.
Your OS, all your apps and 90Gb free from 128?
You sir, are clearly not a Windows gamer ;)
Agreed, this kind of innovation - the ring bus subsystem, needs to have its development costs covered. This is not going to be cheaper than a consumer grade disk by any measure.
... compressed with what??? DivX like its 1999?
'For me, the most noxious element is the way it tries to bully you into using a Microsoft account to log in to your PC.'
That's not the worst part. The worst part is that microsoft accounts can only have a maximum password length of 16... WTF
I've been using redhat linux derivatives in the datacentre and cloud for a while now, so I thought I'd give Fedora 21 a go in a VM. Its a solid solid workstation OS, and next time I get to choose what goes on my office workstation/laptop it will be this distro.
... What's next, a government mandated microphone in every pub bog and living room around the country?
Oh wait, they can already pwn smartphones and listen in, I'll get my coat.
And if I'm not much mistaken, Java is a dependency. No thanks, I'll not get on this tank.
I'm far more excited by what the likes of CoreOS are doing.
Ahh yes it must be the sound of the 'Nanny State Pork Barrel Bus' come to <strikethrough>exploit us all</strikethrough> help us all out. Joy of joys.
“But we are a law-based state operating very tightly within a legal framework”
Do they really thing we were all born yesterday? I seem to remember uk.gov rushing through a law before the recess of parliament because what the snoops were doing was deemed to be illegal by the EC court of Justice.
I wonder if this has anything at all to do with the recent support the UKIP has been getting.
They are a British company after all?
Perhaps they are being made there since they couldn't get quality manufacturing at home.
I do hope they have sorted out their reliability issues though, the Japanese consumer is a fussy one.
Given the theory that the uni/multiverse is infinite, this experiment has already been done an infinite number of times and been found to be both true and false.
Interesting times indeed =)
If you want to go supersonic, why not just do it through the air where you don't have to bother with engineering away the water?
The only application must be military, so the Chinese can deliver a nuke to San Fran bay totally undetected or so. But surely there are easier and less expensive ways to threaten your enemies.
I'm a big fan of the approach CoreOS is taking.
If it was production ready and easier to get installed in the cloud, I'd be rolling it out as my server OS for everything I develop. I can see a switch to it within the next year or so, one to watch for sure.
If AMD has kept the power consumption very low, I think they will make a killing on these.
Also I wonder if they threw in come GCN cores.
Anybody have more info?
Apache Hive actually already allows you to do most SQL operations on data in HDFS, and is enough for our analysis needs. Being able to join on data not in HDFS does however sound interesting.
and quacks like a charlatan...
I thought the whole thing was going to be filmed?
This always makes me laugh
If you can whack this tech on an HDD, I'll take one.
If Amazon are rolling their own servers, they'll likely be testing it out on their own operations first before punting it to the public. As an AWS user, I'd be happy to run my code on ARM.
HAL: I've just picked up a fault in the AE35 unit. It's going to go 100% failure in 72 hours.
Linux patch management is dependent on the distro, and your argument for everyone moving to linux is flawed by your own rationale; if everyone moves to linux, that will be the hackers next target.
Heavens then we will have rabid microsoft fanboys extolling the virtues of their safehaven operating system.
"XP at home, one PC too old so just risking it."
No, don't do that. As someone else pointed out, you're risking it becoming part of someone else's botforest, and that can hurt everyone, not just you.
If it can run XP, it can run some lightweight linux. Look into it.
But had you listened, this would have been a far less entertaining, and shorter read.
If there is any obscure hardware at all, you are probably going to want to take a pre-downloaded copy of the W7 drivers for it.
Go for a distro that uses openbox.
I installed archbang linux on mine, its twice as fast as LMDE, is bang upto date and I've never looked back.
I'd love to read a piece on how the control panels compare between the big three. I'm currently an AWS user and their web based interfaces can be frustrating.
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.
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?
"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.
