The true genius of the information age.

We used to think it was all about making amazing stuff happen with wires and chips and stuff.

Turns out that actually it's all about spotting the value of stuff people will gladly give for free if they get a shiny thing in return.

Re: 198,000

- Expensive Well-built

- Stylish

Trouble with that analysis is that it's based on the cars already produced by tesla, which were slightly more expensive.

it's like saying the ferrari F12 berlinetta is one hell of a car, so this fiat 500 must be great too.

both made by fiat

Apple Fools: Times the House of Jobs went horribly awry

Re: 1985-1997 missteps???

Have you seen any of the tat they have produced in the last few years?

If they fell into a barrel of tits they would come out sucking their thumbs!

By all accounts St. Jobs was a nightmare to deal with, but you have to grudgingly admit he really knew what he was about - or at least stood his ground even if he was wrong!. Everyone else at 1 infinite loop (what an appropriate address) not so much, I guess the last person Jobs would consider working for was Jobs.

As an anti fanboi the last few years have been very entertaining, as they dropped the ball time and time again. It's going to catch up with them soon.

As far as I can see, it's just a question of how long it takes them to burn through that (mahoosive) pile of cash they are sitting on.

Got a pricey gaming desktop from PC World for Xmas? Check the graphics specs

Naughtyhorse
Silver badge

Probably never be an issue...

Given that modern GTX cards automatically limit the clock & therefore consumption based on heat. If you run the psu hot, the inside of the box gets hot, this hot air is drawn into the card and the gpu throttles back.

My vishera does not like the heat, so the gpu (a 970) is limited, by me, to 60C - just to keep the overall heat in the system down. Under load the gpu runs flat out until the temp reaches 60, then eases off. I use it for cuda rendering, and that loads the thing more than any game (well crysys with all the knobs turned up to 11 is a breeze compared to a large render)

dunno about PSU limits... mine is 850w and.... sufficient. But i do have a 3d printer with slurps about 30amps at 12v and a (500w? 650w?) PC psu simply couldn't drive it. didn't overheat just maxed out at 25A and ran happy for hours on end, just didnt drive the bed heat up enough. so the protection on modern psu's is pretty good.

Then again anyone looking for a serious game rig is not going to start at pc world, and definitely not end up there.

Enraged Brits demand Donald Trump UK ban

Naughtyhorse

Again with the 'most people' bullshit.

At least you share rumps conceit - if 1 person agrees with you, then that's a democratic majority, if 300 million disagree, that's because they are delusional.

And if you want to talk about jackboots and the thought police, I'd suggest you look no further than your news outlet of choice.

Re: The guy is the hard-core Democrat's dream.

I'm not so sure about this 'large numbers of people' thing.

sure he's polling 20%,

But that's amongst declared republicans.

A group that has shrunk to it's smallest number on record: 25% of the eligible population.

And I think it is fair to assume that the haemorrhage of support is due to the increasingly extreme right wing stance adopted by the party generally.

So trumps poll lead indicates that the most extreme 5% of the population love him, but 75% of the population would either vote for his opponent, or not vote at all.

That said, he clearly is a dream indeed for the dems

Amazon's new drones powered by Jeremy Clarkson's sarcasm

Naughtyhorse
Silver badge

Amazing: a mutually exclusive claim... with 1 clause!

No authority in it's right mind anywhere in the world is going to permit any old tom dick or harry to fly a drone over a built up area. Not even murica! - look at the current half-assed approach of the FAA to regulate toy planes.

This makes the 30 minute claim more than bollocks.

Anywhere that has significant population density drones will be verboten. Anywhere that has sufficient space to operate will be mostly devoid of people and entirely devoid of amazon whorehouses (spell check? no that's what I meant)

Methinks an amazon mid level hipsters PA fucked up and instead of the 'quarter strength, decaf, soy cappuccino with less foam, no chocolate dusting, two marshmallows on the side, six sugars and can I have it heated to eighty degrees please.' she was supposed to get, she only went and got a 'quarter strength, soy cappuccino with less foam, no chocolate dusting, two marshmallows on the side, six sugars and can I have it heated to eighty degrees please.'

And said hipster tripped out on the caffeine and had a massive brainfart

Re: The US government is something different than the US people.

So not a democracy then?

I must admit I have never been able to fathom the difference between the stance adopted by the US Govt. vs the opinions of the american people.

for eg next year, roughly half of the population will vote for a man (or fiorina....lol) that is borderline insane (carson.... okay batshit crazy) and clearly incapable of the task ahead.

around 1/2 of the population?

wtf?
