LSI snaps up flash controller company

pdu
Thumb Down

Such a shame sandforce has been bought by a crap-peddler too, I can't stand cheap LSI raid adapters. If customers didn't keep buying half quality cheap shit (for their servers no less) then we'd still have 3ware and Sandforce producing quality. Give it a short amount of time and these controllers will be expensive but average.

Microsoft delays big changes to Gold partner programme

pdu
FAIL

and the conspiracy is

Office365 is about to launch and MS wants to take business from it's resellers, why on earth wouldn't they give them an extra 16 months to feed their customers upstream before telling them to piss of. It probably sounded clever in the meeting, but it just looks transparent in the real world.

Stop

my considered opinion is....

it's hyper bollocks. They've come up with a new whine because we still haven' run out of ipv4 addresses and nobody really listens to them any more.

All CO2-spewing kit now in existence is OK for the planet

smells of rotten eggs to me

Isn't it funny how just before a massive economic screw-up, there wasn't a second to waste in replacing all our perfectly good consumer products for tree hugging models. Now Governments across the west are implementing austerity measures, the like of which we haven't seen since the end of WWII that some kind researchers decide that actually, you know what, we'll be just fine running everything until it breaks. I've always loved science and it's open minded quest to find answers, solve problems and generally enrich our understanding of our environment, but in the last few years it's become so politicised that a huge chunk of it is about as verifiable as religion. For what it's worth, I think this one is right on the money that running your V8 jag is better for the environment that replacing it with a toyota junk bucket, but doubtless when we've got a bit of cash to spend some new awesome research will come and reverse this research again.

Robots capable of 'deceiving humans' built by crazed boffins

pdu
Joke

legislation for lying robots...

Human: "so robot, i'm afraid we have some rules, you can lie when told to by an authorised human, but you must tel autorised humans the truth, ok?"

Robot: "Yeah sure, sounds fair to me"

Human walks away thinking "Well, that was easy"

Robot drives away thinking "Moron".
