Sounds like a nice big pork barrel rolling on down the road, and those that are along for the ride have no desire to stop it, or be accountable to those who have their fees thrust upon them.

Pentium 4 using 500W?
... don't think so. A dual socket box might consume that much at the wall but that would have been Xeon branded even then. The CPUs themselves never ate that much power. Still crap mind you.
'Frankly, the case deserves it too.'
I'm sorry, what? The only 'evidence' you have to go on is the official government line, which you probably just read on these esteemed pages.
If the UK gov. have such evidence against these chaps, surely they can release it for scrutiny, can't they? What's that, its a 'National Security' secret? How convenient.
lookin' for the web in all the wrong places
This is what happens when you don't use HTTPS
Graphics not working?
I'd be really pissed if I'd bought this CPU/mobo combo for a workstation only to discover that I'd bought a couple of bricks.
The lander didn't work correctly, its operated by the Doclands Light Railway company!
Has someone take the trouble to point out to Mr. *ahem* Johnson, that that is not in fact a silhouette?
Surprised the author didn't mention this one:
It's Arch linux configured much like crunchbang with Openbox
Hah, yeah right. The don't seem to be able to push out anything in acceptable quantity below 28nm. We'll be seeing 10nm from them much later than 2016 I suspect.
Last time I checked...
... It wasn't 1983, whats with all the garish fluorescent colours!
From the video, it looks like they'll be punting tablets and netbooks.
Re: To be fair...
The solution to that one is simple. Install CS2, which is free (as in beer) and has zero issues.
Can he do me a Radeon Fury?
They only weigh in at 8.9 billion transistors, he'll be done by lunchtime, right?
Devs, prepare to abandon ship.
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!'
The next step
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.
Has El Reg employed F7 as Editor-in-chief?
"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.
Fine, if you don't care about performance
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.
A decent market
Especially if the Russian government dictates that all government departments buy all Russian!
In soviet Russia, market eats you! err wait...
The name's Rod, Lightening Rod
I wonder how long it will be before his phone is tapped, his internet data all collected etc.
What's not to like?
Err, the fact that I will have no control over it for one.
Is this even English?
Such poor grammar....
SRLSY, do you even English?
No comparison with H265 I see
Perhaps it's going to bomb against that like its predecessor did with H264?
Re: This is laughable
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.
Re: Am I the only one...
"I am completely operational, and all of my circuits are functioning perfectly."
- Doesn't mean I'm not about to kill you
'NetBook' - exactly.
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.
"You hold Epic Scale next to something like a [browser] toolbar, and it's night and day."
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.
Re: Compare these to the 20MB MFM drives of not so long ago!
Your OS, all your apps and 90Gb free from 128?
You sir, are clearly not a Windows gamer ;)
Re: Probably enterprise gear pricing
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.
"Given that a 4k film can be 300Gb"...
... 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.
Basically he's declaring war on private conversation
... 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.
Smells like marketing fluff
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.
What's that sound?
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.
Re: Extraordinary claims
“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.
Wonder why Japan first
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.
Re: it'll all end in tears
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 =)
I don't get it
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.
Feeds and speeds?
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?
Sounds like a 'look, me too!' endeavour.
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.
If it looks like a charlatan...
and quacks like a charlatan...
I thought the whole thing was going to be filmed?
Re: Science education...
This always makes me laugh
Applicable to HDD?
If you can whack this tech on an HDD, I'll take one.
ARM on AWS
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.
It looks suspiciously like an AE-35 unit
HAL: I've just picked up a fault in the AE35 unit. It's going to go 100% failure in 72 hours.
Re: "Anyone else getting bored of stories about XP updates stopping?"
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.
