Probably not on its own!
A 64GB DDR4 can be had for about £600
I've seen them for almost half that (~AU$700)
Microsoft bashing in an article about new RAM...
Bashing of Global 500 companies should be encouraged at any opportunity!
And when it's undeserved just call it irony.
But when compared to the depreciation incurred in buying a new car every 2-3 years, you've actually got quite a bit to play with.
"I could have made this other poor decision which justifies the one I did make"?
There's an ongoing standards war in the wireless power market, with two competing groups – the Wireless Power Consortium versus the Airfuel Alliance, which formed following the merger of the Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP) and the Power Matters Alliance (PMA).
when was the law against murdering spokesmen enacted?
Presumably it doesn't apply today
As long as you were born after it entered the statute, I'd say you're in the clear.
Green energy policies could take out 90%, making the Greens the greatest killers mankind has ever known.
Does this have more votes up than down because it's just too perverse not to be satire? It's getting difficult to tell whenever the topic comes up here.
Why do you think hyper-threading is bullshit?
I get 100% speedups in some tasks.
I only just built a new gaming machine, but was unable to find the specific motherboard I wanted in Australia and had to settle for something else. Now Newegg has it! If only I'd waited.
Still looks like international shipping though?
Between the up and down vote buttons there needs to be a "confused" button.
Don't ever change, amanfromMars.
Less than 20 years ago in my high school school chemistry class a small ampoule of bromine was being passed around the room so that the students could get a good safe look at the stuff. The ampoule itself was sealed inside a larger glass vial.
Despite the subject of that particular lesson being that halogens are unfriendly, it got to one guy who threw it above his head and allowed it to land on the desk. With me sitting next to him. It didn't break but that was the end of that.
Can I play Wolfenstein: The New Order on it?
His name is even better rendered in the court documents:
CARL MARK FORCE IV
We've had this in Stralya [sic] longer than I've been here and stuff is still priced at X.99. Hell, we even have sofas marked at $2,999.99!
Psychological pricing is never going away, no matter the smallest denomination of whichever currency you're using. The price also only needs to be rounded if you use cash, otherwise it's still charged to the cent.
The more pertinent fact here is that the Australian sky didn't collapse 24 years ago when we ditched the old copper 1c and 2c coins.
And then New Zealand did away with 5c coins ten years ago and they seem to be doing fine. I wish we would do the same.
"overtaking on the left"
Is this still illegal in the UK today?
I think the point is that such behaviour is unnecessary and counter-productive at best.
As a thought experiment, run a hypothetical economy on bitcoins. If you need to increase the money supply above the fixed (and decreasing) rate at which new ones are created, your only recourse is to (somehow) increase the value of a bitcoin.
Any good or service that you could buy with one bitcoin now costs less than one bitcoin, and it had nothing at all to do with improvements in the production of that good or rendering of that service. Hence deflation.
Goldbugs and bitcoin pumpers want this to happen because they hold gold or bitcoins, and they think it will make them rich.
This Hyundai has ~35% more power than the UK-spec BMW 118i
It seems that the 118i is a different beast in different markets, so the Australian market review I dug up of it is perhaps not fully representative of the UK model since it has a slightly larger engine, although the power is the same. Regardless, the Australian magazine review returned fuel consumption on a combined test cycle slightly better than this review of this Hyundai, but critically it was 70% greater than BMW's claim. As we say here, croikey.
Managed to get 35 mpg from a 3.7L V6 yesterday.
Or 2011, as is the case for this car.
You never got close to the rated fuel consumption because it's a turbo. This is not exclusive to Hyundai; unless you keep them off boost they all do that. Burning 40% more fuel than the quoted rating is pretty much par for the course from modern turbocharged "economy" cars.
And these days with peak torque arriving below 2k RPM, you can pretty much never keep them off boost.
It is surprisingly porky for a small hatch though, at almost 1400kg.
Goldeneye is on TV right now
Who would have imagined that an article about a guy painting a baseball would cause the comments section to erupt like this. Climate change wasn't even mentioned once!
Alternative music on Triple J? Not for about 15 years...
Oh, and not agreeing with me doesn't make them any less crazy.
You're right you know. Whether anyone agrees with you has absolutely no bearing on whether what you say is correct.
Probably pretty well on NOx though!
I wouldn't start counting the chickens just yet. From my understanding VW passed all the tests that they needed to. If this is the case then the US authorities won't be able to fine them a single cent
Believe it or not, cheating the test is covered in the legislation!
Isn't that a phondleslab?
Here, and Bill Bailey!
Perhaps a new support category for driverless cars at the Clipsal 500?
Liquid rocket engines tend to be run fuel rich for a number of reasons. Performance is one of them - you get better efficiency by not burning cleanly, since the efficiency is inversely proportional to the molecular weight of the exhaust products. Lots of CO and H2 in the exhaust of a hydrocarbon burning rocket by design.
People want good running cars, not cars that shake and rattle when they roll.
People shouldn't have been buying diesels then!
Well its abbreviation is HAN (or at least, what it's based on). And it's a monopropellent. So, err... it's used in SOLO...
Indeed. I'm also not entirely optimistic about the future. The remaining coalition ministry will be largely the same bunch they were yesterday, and the opposition's also a shambles, but at least Tony's gone.
And he didn't even make it to One Term Tony.
You worked for Microsoft?
Even Canon's EF-S lenses battle to focus above 8Mpixel resolution at the edges of the field of view.
Don't forget the scams. You might think you're buying a handgun, or a few grams of cocaine, but what turns up in the mail might not be what you were expecting.
That's a large hidden compartment!
What I was thinking when I mentioned encoding was some sort of shifting, timestamped cryptographic signature, which I think would make difficult to replay?
Or does that still not get around a replay attack? I'm definitely not an expert here.
I can imagine that one way to avoid being spoofed in this way is to encode your own LIDAR pulses, possibly also using a variable frequency, so that you can filter out the spurious echos from signals that you know you just sent.
What does Seagate do with 50,000 employees?
I don't even understand it well enough to decide whether I should be frightened or not.
And that scares me.
