Re: " all intelligent devices - notebook, slabbies and smartphones"

I am sure you meant the server bringing most money as you DO NOT KNOW the number of servers installed. Unless you want to share some stats proving me wrong. That would be interesting.

Re: Sun it hot and grass is green...

While you are correct to some degree few points are not quite true or missing the point:

Tumors do not have necessarily the same DNA. Due to the large number of generations (think how many cell divisions in the total population) mutations would be accumulating and sooner ot later you would have heterogenous cancer cell population. Actually this would be the rule, not the exception.

Also contagious cancers are know to occur only in highly inbred species (dogs, Tasmanian devil). So in humans cancer would be likely contagious among royalties and the Apalachia in Southeastern USA. Hmmm, I could mourn the Southern folks, the rest would be bad only for the yellow press.

Re: Bill Gates is obviously Guilty

Rape in addition to being under reported is also the most falsified accusation.

In case you did not know- Mr Assange is not charged with rape anywhere in the world. Please, unless you have actual facts of the contrary shut up.

I dislkike Assange. I think he is sleazy and unpleasant. But this is no reason to accuse him of rape without knowing the facts.

BWT shame on you for casting the stone.

I think you just won my prize for worst post I have ever seen here on theregister.

Re: Plane crash

Find me a journal worthy of you. Or a publication. You said do a search and I did. Now of course those journals are not good for you.

Perhaps your search is restricted to AmercasPower publications.

Or you are just a troll.

BTW, PNAS estimates are for 1m sea level rise by the end of 2100.

Wall Street Journal? wattsupwiththat web site? This is some really serious science man! Radical! Thanks for sharing! What are you smoking by the way?

And if you actually read what James Lovelock said you will see he is not rejecting the idea of global warming. He said that he extrapolated too far.

The problem here buster is not that he could be wrong. The problem is he could be right. Maybe 50 years later. Well, if you don't give a shit about your offspring I guess you should not care...

Re: Plane crash

No one predicted the end of the world. Just the death of significant piece of the mankind as more areas become uninhabitable and wars are waged over scarce resources. I am sure you have your own definition of significant. Yes, I forgot, we have the A-bombs. I guess A stands for asshole... Never mind.

Here is one of the first I pulled up:

Nature 453, 84-88 (1 May 2008).

Then this:

Nature 453, 353-357 (15 May 2008)

Of course Nature publishes sensationalist stuff mainly, right?

Oh, here is another sensationalist one:PNAS December 22, 2009 vol. 106. PNAS is well known for its sensationalism too.

The icon is chosen because of your IQ. Spin from IPCC, good god. I am sure we can rely on your competent opinion... Go to a party or something Pierre. Somewhere where you have some credibility.

Plane crash

What people often failed to see is that we have a fatal crisis in the making. It may be 50 years down the road, but we will not be able just to turn around when we finally see it coming (or the 50% percent brain dead right wing ideologues).

So we should ask ourselves-what are the chance the scientific community is right? 50%? 30%? 10%?

Would you let your kid take a plane, knowing there is a 10% chance this airplane will crash?

How does this coal and oil now smell to you?

My friend you are an idiot or a recent MBA graduate. Most likely both.

Oh, sharp eyed person? What is that- the people who pick up the most competent person for the next "rightsizing"?

US killer spy drone controls switch to Linux

You just don't get it do you?

There is a loooot of manual work involved in what you propose. This is why most people do not bother.

Not to mention Windows has very limited experience (<5 years) of securing their systems. Not even funny if you compare to Linux/Unix.

Desktop Linux: the final frontier

Legit issues

This is one of the many legit issues with Linux. The problem is that if one of the gurus/devs are not affected there is a chance there will not be a bug fix. To be honest this is the reason I am going to Linux specific vendors (zareason system76) or check support/use for hardware before I buy.

Seriously?

There are few things I despise as much as Outlook. It is slow, counter intuitive, tries to do everything, but fails at many things.

Examples:

1. Corruptions: 3 so far this year (don't tell me there is a new version or I do something wrong, there is always an excuse).

2. No functional recurring meetings (warned not to used them, bad things happen)

3. SLOOOOOOOWWWW

4. Meetings getting lost...

5. Creating distribution lists sucks and lists are getting corrupted.

6. Filters compared to Thunderbird suck big time.

Should I go on?

No, you took a lot of lessons to drive that car, remember?

It just depends on how you started- why do you need iTunes, when there is Ubuntu One?

So, yes, you could start your Linux comp and have everything you need and most of what you want.

XBOX example

I assume write off, not right off.

They poured over 1B so far (presumably). And the question is- how long can they keep pouring.

They net income has not grown that much from 2000, even though they had major new releases. Not to mention they just added 2.25B to their debt, even though it is very low interest (who is the idiot buying this debt anyway?).

XBOX took a really long time to make a profit and never gave MS the monopoly they long for.

Microsoft, Nokia, and RIM's wasted R&D billions

kirovs
Thumb Up

As much as I hate MS...

the conclusions are 99% junk. Here is why:

- significant variables unaccounted for are:

1. Scope of business; it is easy to squeeze every last cent out of your customers in a particular niche (Apple)

2. Disruptive technological change; your curve is much steeper if you start form nothing and in a totally new area (Google)

3. General health of the economy; people start looking for alternatives when they are short on cash (open-source

4. Corporate idiots; "Our customers do not need tabbed browsing", " We are not interested in Internet", "Touchscreen has no future", etc., etc. How is this R&D's fault, if management take the wrong path?

-So the conclusion is R&D does not deliver, but the companies are cherry-picked. Look at Redhat, some Biotech's, oh, yes, throw in Google too. The conclusion is going to be the opposite.

Is there waste? Absolutely! But these conclusions are so far fetched and radical, I think they are mostly junk.

In a successful company you have all levels working together for the same goal. This conclusion I will accept.
