Economics - it is expected to reduce launch costs by 30% and the risk is in the landing not the launch so a good approach.
So which one
is the rocket ship?
I voted for Sir David Attenborough
I liked Boaty but SDA is much more fitting.
Boaty lives on as a submersible on the vessel of course.
My best memory of Sir David is with the gorillas, a joy to watch and watch filled with wonder.
Re: I wonder,
Yes, CPU is BCM 8237 and WiFi BCM43438 in the Pi 3.
It was some people at Broadcom Cambridge that pushed the Pi for years before it was given the go ahead.
It is why they exited Blu-ray player silicon, lots of compatibility problems due to dodgy disc mastering and low profits with a lot of smaller customers.
Traditionally Broadcom are a high margin manufacturer and put it back into R&D to stay at the higher end of the market.
Never mind Exnos and Qualcomm - Mediatek are winning in that space.
New processor - Stegasaurus
Intel keep trying the same thing, suddenly jumping on a bandwagon.
A shame but they are still thinking the same way they did twenty years ago.
x86 has been very successful but is fading, especially with ARM moving into servers as well.
Intelligence AND politics?
Trump factor 5
What is this? The US election campaign?
If there was useful information in there I couldn't find it.
Crap place, crap money, crap management
I had an interview there years ago, years of pay freeze and rubbish pension.
HR were like scared rabbits and the electric wheelchairs they had sat in a corner with dead batteries and flat tyres, they had been like that for God knows how long. I reported it and was ignored.
Then all the internal politics and racism...
The next step
Well done SpaceX!
Re: Not sure if HR is the best choice of confidant...
Most are snakes but I have been lucky with HR a couple of times.
A great article
How many don't talk about this?
I don't do IT but did develop safety critical systems to evacuate large sites such as airports and refineries with the same kind of workload.
An article like this would have helped me.
Best for to describe this article? Vital.
Pot - kettle
Who believes the US has stopped?
Plus your soul.
I am seriously considering switching to Linux/WINE
Having to make sure the nagware doesn't take over my PC is the last step.
The only thing I am interested (a bit) that won't run under WINE would be Visual Studio but there are good C# IDEs under Linux so I can write complex applications.
Mint by the way is... well mint!
Dare to dream
Dare to make the dream real.
There good serious articles just not too many.
Sometimes El Reg has gone too far but not often.
For those who think Big Bird of IT is selling out, read the article properly.
I hope to keep seeing more of Dabs and Worral plus the occasional serious article.
BBoIT will continue to poop on those who deserve it.
Much better than the government honours list
It also helps us to see where the industry came from.
Other than BS what has come out of whatever he is gibbering about?
Not just the dinner table
But crossing the road.
No text needed.
have been used in electronics for decades, nice application of SAW.
Not about IT?
Maybe it is to try and deal with all the zero hour contracts that the likes of Sport Direct use?
If so then some differentiation needs to be made but at the moment many people at the bottom don't get benefits because they have a job and are treated as spare parts by these so called 'employers', called on at any time IF they are wanted and can't take another job.
but don't act act.
Had quite a few of those, that is a success.
I must be unique according wossname.
At GCHQ for an interview.
It's worse than you think - Yes Minister meets The IT Crowd.
HR are like frightened rabbits which set off alarms for me, always a bad sign.
Re: I tried to share the article on FaceBook
Shows that this article is spot on.
A rendition of the proposed plant?
It will be kidnapped and put on a plane?
El Reg - please employ people who have English as a first language, the standards have plummeted in the past six months.
Talk Talk have a certain consistency
As does a mixture of mud and pig shit.
On the cheap
Big company gets people barely able to do the work and pays them peanuts.
Who wins? Certainly not security.
This series has fluctuated a lot and there are valid comments here but the last five minutes of this made it the best for a quite a while, good basic drama.
You know, that ones Google have decided they have the right to scan and make freely available on line.
Re: Desired income source
That is why they bought CSR, they need to diversify.
Working at Qualcomm?
Move to Mediatek!
Time for a change in leadership?
Just for Intel and friends
The smaller players have been getting stronger, partly due to being able to put together their own chips due to the likes of ARM.
Add IoT and AMD, Intel etc. are in trouble.
Nvidia are into high performance computing so they have diversified enough.
I am certain the US was abusing this and Europe was happy to do nothing.
Re: Ultimate test
Isn't "Evil cat" redundant?
The idiot filter worked.
Nice bit of cyber bullying.
My dictionary exploded half way through that.
Quantum of Self Serving Comittees?
Just get rid of the word 'quantum' and see what is best.
US cable companies?
Who ALWAYS have the consumer's interest at heart.
Dynamic IP address?
The IP address is not guaranteed to be consistent so this isn't a silver bullet.
Don't worry, power will not be abused
Get a professional in!
More rigorous arse covering
Is what they really mean.
