We could put some money and try to contact him to send him a gift, postcard whatever.
He seemed quite angry at his lawyer for putting him on the spam list.. and was affected by the swiss secure web service shutdown.. he lost emails important for his defense.
It is expensive to manufacture in India: too much corruption!! Even worse than china.. and when you have to effectively pay "protection money" "pizzo" "lecgal surcharges" or whatever you want to call it, things get expensive very quickly.
As corruption in India seems to be fixed as soon as we have electric Fusion Power, I don't really think India is a serious contender for China. Maybe smaller countries that can be dominated by big corps are a better target for them.
Chinese company: they sell in $, converting to pounds makes no sense, as thyou would haave to be correcting the article.
Nobody uses copper for main trunks, it just makes no sense.
As for high speed copper, yes, possible, but only a short distance.
It is not that they think they are spies, it has been proven to be the case, at least some of them were.
So now we have illeterate violent pple thinking these people are spies. Great.
Are declining and will cease to be used for "PCs".. SSDs in maany forms will replace them.
The "PCs" of course might be phones, or tablets, or whatever format me use, but no HDD will be inside, we all know that.
Still, for backup, video recording, etc, I think it makes sense.
First I tried to sell linux/windows boxes, but ppl would not listen to me.
I then decided to sell what they really wanted: ultraexpensive IBM/Sun kit: great success.
As for me, if I had to choose, well, "inexpensive" Intel Xeon boxes, they really rock, they are simply amazing, Sun can't compete with that.
Your workload may differ from mine, of course.
No problem with him burning in hell.
Yes, the victims might have had a low quality door, but if a gang of juneviles thrash your place and steal your tools and ruin you, you would agree that they should go to prison.
Well, in some states, if you steal three cakes, the third time you go to prison for life (three strikes law).
Also, a reallyt big portion of those incarcerated have drug related sentences... you know, "war on drugs" that only benefits the prison owners.
In the uk, if you kill somebody while drunk you might not even go to prison, and that is absurd.
The bad test was obviously made to german specs.
Same for Euro X tests.. made for german/french manufacturers,. tests while moving are not difficult today.. yet they resist. Same with NOx.. they refuse to test for them, and I have designed systems that can detect and measure NOx in exhaust for less than 200€.
what he says is "RESPECT THE LAW", as in all laws, not just the local one.
Won't happen, as it means US would have to repel the US unPatriot Act, among others.
If you live in the UK, you better have no encryption, less you forget the passwords.. and get jailed.
Into the aircraft? no way!!
The trick is they won't extend them in countries like Spain...
Since when has that been a problem for the us military?
UCAVs are cheaper to run, and can have way more capabilities than piloted planes, for clear reasons.
The only problem is the meatballs run the show and refuse to allow the UCAVs to take their roles.
It isn't very clever.
It is a matter of googling the tech specs of dc-dc boosters, nothing else.
There is a re-settable polymer fuse in the USB, and several capacitors plus a voltage divider for voltage sensing, and that will mean s short to ground.
You will kind of fry the computer, but no data will be lost.
So I think this is just a nuissance, with no practical use.
The "lost" usb with the trojan, that one is a good one..
By the time AMD goes tits up, our mobile phones will probably be our main computing devices.
As it is right now, it is only bad software that prevents us from using our phones as laptops/desktops: with BT 4.0 LP, and miracast we should be able to connect a keyboard, a mouse and a screen wirelessly while charging on a charge pad... and that should happen automatically..
If we had that smoothly done, good bye laptops and desktops.
It IS going to happen, and I hope soon, as current flagship phones have 4G ram and more CPU and GPU power than normaldesktops from 2 years ago that we consider perfectly ok to use.
then Intel will have a HUGE problem, as they don't own the mobile market.
Sorry to correct you, but Lithium batteries also have calendar life.
Expect to lose 5-7% per year if in use. @4 years, at least 20%.
At max CPU for a prolongued time, most top of the line phones will have a heat problem.. some are worse than others, but still...
Here, fixed it:
And great, if you nick a 3000 pound bike with powertools, you get a community order.
I guess I should stop working and just steal stuff.
It is a simple question of a bit higher fuel consumption.. but that looks like your engine can't compete.
So what you are saying is that it is unrealistic to have a Tour the France without performance enhancing drugs.
No. It is possible, and there are engines that are able to make it.
Of course they knew.
It wasn't only SW.. there was a hidden adblue microresorvoir.. so many departments involved!!
Slick integration, light weight, very good screen, good design and inertia.
He is brown and named Ahmed. That is the reason.
Nobody know the exact requirements, and how to properly test them.
And even if you knew, every little change in the system will be asking for trouble, and paying a lot of money.
At the end it is just a way for somedepartments to externalize risk and cost, to the IT department and/or the rest of the company.
They plan to offer one that offer HW decoding.. so instead of using the GPU, they are using the CPU.. terrible.
You missed the part where the next version thay fixes the bug you are bothered by installs a new SW piece that changes your product to "enterprise" even if you are not using it.
Good job, yes, murder, yes.
Integrated GPU is used by most users.
Today it is good enough for most users, including many graphic designers.
Mac laptops mostly have integrated GPUs, and work ok, the speed is also ok.
They went as fas as disabling NCQ on some USB 3.0 3TB drives... and still got 2 defective ones.
The Seagate 3TB debacle is widely known. You could ask backblaze about it...
Helium diffuses in aluminum
Here, have a thesis on it.
So when the rich and the big Cos don't pay taxes, and the politicians overexpend and give perks to the rich, it is the "socialist" state that is stealing from the poor.
Thank you for your clarity.
But just prove it was them...
automatic pedals can be ok for city, just unclip:it is safer.
It is starting to get available in plenty of places, and the coverage is going to be way better than Openreach, and fiber to the home, so no galvanic corrosion.
You are asking if Telefónica is going to provide 10Gbps, well, I am asking if openreach is going to provide (REAL) 6Mbps DSL for greater LONDON. Not parts of it, but all of it.
As for Albarracin, you have by chance found a small village near a mountain far away from main roads in the lowest density province of spain.
So, when is openreach going to provide that speed in Broadford, Skye?
That describes the problem prefectly ok.
Copper/alu requires either proper maintenance or crap service.
As maintence is expensive, most telcos have decided that crap service it is.
Still, ppl insist on copper, I don't see the reason.
For G.fast you have to install fibre equipped cabinets.
The copper/alu is, almost for sure, in bad shape.
Ppl WON'T get 300Mbps except maybe on trials as they will probably change the copper.
It will be "up to 300 Mbps", and then they will get a lot less.
If you have to change the copper to provide decente service, you might as well put fiber.
In spain Telefónica want tu pull the copper cable just to protect the fiber.
Anyway, I no longer live in Spain, and have FTTC.
In Spain Telefónica offers 300 Mb FTTH as standard. They can raise it to 600Mbps or more if needed, including, for example, 10Gbps. And can be symmetrical.
Those "up to 330 Mbps" are already obsolete.
And fiber is reliable, and not affected by galvanic corrosion or cable theft.
It is also cheaper to mantain than metallic access, and almost as cheap to install.
It just doesn't make sense not to install FTTH.
If no NHS existed, then BUPA etc prices would just rocket, as they would have no real competition.
She did fix problems than needed fixing.
She also made sure that the poor stayed poor.
It is true.
They won't come after you with hellfire missiles, but if you have significant income, certain taxes DO apply to you unless you take action.
I know an entrepeneur that had adquired US citizenship that renounced it (very expensive) in order to stop paying the IRS.
My wife, is an american born citizen, ans is required to pay taxes to the IRS. Not on income (she is below the limit), but if she sells a house, she would be required to pay tax, Boris style (but with way less money).
As for the article, I disagree.
I don't think it is a great idea to create a credit bubble, but at least you would have to admit that if we give credit to companies, we should do the same for individuals. Or ar we their slaves?
Hire more employees, then the software per employee cost will fall.
This is absurd, only a politician could come up with this nonsense.
I am all for removing Oracle, but seriously, license per employee? So in the "IT revolution" they pretend to spend less.. and expensive software that reduces headcount and saves money will be automatically discarded.
A free market with perfect competition would mean none could earn more tha enough to eat.
The market will regulate itself, that is true, but we won't like the result.
I would probably get the long straw, as I am an engineer with plenty of certifications and experience both in software and hardware, and in management and sales. That is the reason I am going to become a contractor in a few months (we are finishing a project).
This system would benefit me, but would be terrible for society. It would mean if you are less skilled, you get to either die of hunger or society has to give subsidies to the rich (ASDA, etc).
It is wrong, extremely wrong.
Sorry, but NO, you have NO clue.
Modern cars are still terrible.
When you accelerate more than a bit, they exit the "clean mode" and pollute as much as 20 year old. Same when cold and outside euro testing conditions... manufacturers tend to make the producto work when in the euro-IV-V.. conditions.. when outside those conditions, they still pollute A LOT.
Not to speak of particle filters.. when they burn those particles thay make things worse woth particles so small that can get into your blood stream.
ICE engines are also extremely inefficient.
As for 2 stroke engines, you are completely right. They should be banned.
My guess is that some ppl have decided to comment on the publicity on this site.
