Intel switches ARM stance from 'No' to 'Maybe'

The Beard

Two things come to mind..

1) Sony needs to sort out the PS4 hardware around now, sounds like a likely choice.

2) Could be an exit strategy for NVidia, the discrete graphics market won't sustain them forever, this way they can stick their GPU on the same silicon as a top class CPU without having to try to work out how to build a CPU itself and all the license wrangling involved.

Dutch astronaut unleashes 155 mph 'Superbus'

The Beard
Stop

15 Meter long Minibus

So it seats 23 people, that isn't a bus it is a mini bus. So a 15M long minibus with what looks like no cargo space and needs special roads to reach its high speeds and one assumes fancy electrical connections at each end to top up.

Yeah that sounds like a great idea?!?

Fukushima one week on: Situation 'stable', says IAEA

The Beard

The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

Thank you for writing that reporter's name, he has been so irksome and inflammatory I was thinking of complaining but had no idea of his name. Didn't help that every other sentence he uttered had me turn the BBC News off.

Google's Chrome browser market share hits 10% mark

Opera

Agreed, I've never understood why Opera's market share is so small, sure it hasn't got the opensource hipness of Firefox but I've always found it to be consistantly one of the better browsers out there.

Beeb ordered to release TV licensing contract sweeteners

The Beard

.The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits.

Ah, that brings back a memory, first year of Uni, floor of halls with 30 odd rooms, we were given warning the license people were coming. I answer my door with the kettle lead plug hanging out of my mouth, to re-enact the young ones episode, sadly it was lost on the bloke, or he just had no sense of humor.

And the only person to invite him in had a tv license and for the one day only, about twenty TVs.

Virgin Media introduces P2P throttling

The Beard

\0/ More upload.

So basically they are increasing my upload rate for no extra charge? And I can still download whatever I like however I like, as long as I don't do it too much at peak times.

Sounds fair and good to me.

Even more low tech

Replace the turf in the goal behind the line with a gravel trap or similar.

Microsoft trumps Kinect with 'sleek, silent, sexy' Xbox

The Beard

@Urs Keller

The new Kinect needs to be pluged into the mains. On the new xbox there is a connection on the back the Kinect can draw power from. For the original xbox you have to get power from an adapter (which ships with the Kinect) which plugs into the power brick of the console.
