Re: they do PCs and services?
They claim to be spending a billion on "The Machine" but there is very little sign, eg try to find anyone working on it.
As far as I could find, the previous Samsung NVMe never shipped. I still haven't managed to buy an Intel one either, availability date still seems to get pushed out, all though I am inclined to believe they will ship one day.
Re: They are making profits of over £100m...
People also seem to want some advice as to which network and contract to choose from someone they think is a bit independent, though the level of advice from these establishments is pretty poor.
Re: Glad I Jumped...
You still have to pay BT extra for your landline though. Which sucks. They still basically have a monopoly.
You could read the article, he says nothing about outsource and offsite. Software. You know, that stuff you run on your servers. He is suggesting you get servers with storage and run software on them rather than buy hardware and software packaged up togerther.
Lots of people have tried it and it rarely does. TCP is nicely tuned from years of experience.
However you could use this new process without changing TCP - just change the stack not to ask for retransmissions if it can reconstruct the lost data.
"The actual value of a Bitcoin is the amount of 'leccy used to obtain it. any value above that is Hot Air" hey will you pay me for these digits of pi I generated with some leccy then? No? Maybe turning leccy into computation does not create value...
PPC hardware is still supported. By Linux...
Basically when the shares get bought back they get cancelled.

Most of these people are talking about ARM64 which is actually a brand new Risc architecture with little connection to ARM as we no it, it is even a separate Linux port, not part of the ARM tree, although Linus did want them to merge it.
If you only pitch at the Fortune 2000, hardly a hotbed of innovation.
Re: @Unlimited - if ipv4 addresses are so rare
Because they are not (yet) rationing them by price. That may happen, but for now small quantities are still cheap. If you want lots you cant have them at all.
At some point Amazon EC2 won't be able to get addresses then you will have to switch... Google already went to ipv6 internally.
Some of their stuff is ok if you install openwrt on it - which they support, which is nice.
That's NP-annoying not NP-hard.
Wait till you see the damage from a small earthquake. Think of the kittens!
My computer does not need to measure the rotation of the earth. It does however need to agree what the time is with other computers for security reasons. It might also have to tell humans to do stuff at particular times, but that need not be that precise.
Microsoft can't buy them now, antitrust reasons, nor can Google, Samsung or Apple. Dell now has too much debt, and HP is scared off mobile now. A smaller buyer might turn up, eg Lenovo or Hauwei or someone I suppose. The patents could be split off.
There are fine desktop distros for Power eg Fedora. Now finding decent desktop hardware is harder though. There hasn't been much since Apple stopped making it.
Would anyone buy a hybrid? Its a more expensive hard drive, or a crappyier flash. Neither one thing nor the other. It only sort of makes sense in a laptop where only 1 fits, but there are good reasons for 100% flash there anyway.
No you should be hacking it!
You can. You can have a VOIP number at any exchange you like. Or any country.
Re: Current second-level domains
Yes quite a few. Germany used not to do second level for example.
"Those who would rather their Pi OS conform to higher standards of OS purity will therefore have to look elsewhere."
You mean not buy a Pi that is - these non free components are needed to boot the thing alas.
Beer for purity (if German).
Re: Killer App suggestion
Isn't that what everyone does when moving and waitin for adsl? I used giffgaff, real unlimited data for £12 a month. With HSPA+ you can stream video if you want.
Netgear have http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2012/10/9/netgear-announces-new-10gbe-switches.aspx so more should start to arrive soon,
...disagree with the panel at Cloudcamp you are supposed to red card them and er storm the stage... (actually I was on the panel for a bit).
There are still stupid Java bastions left - online meeting software, browser based VPNs, and a whole bunch of stuff in banking.
You don't even need an O2 mobile of your own, you can use someone else's if they do not have o2 broadband. So the people at O2 told me... Moved to fibre now though.
The "hazy computers" are at a not so hazy 102 in the top 500 http://www.top500.org/site/50321
See this post about what you need to direct connect PCIe
So you need a small amount of device to deal with clocking and master/slave issues but not a lot...
Re: Cattle Class
Thats a Chromebook then? You can wipe ChromeOS and install a normal ARM Linux distro. Although not sure exactly what size they are maybe they are too big for this as I have no yet seen one...
Somehow the prices managed to go up I think. My Eee cost around £135 from memory and used it for many years. £200+ was ridiculous. I think that was to pay the Windows tax plus the higher specs Windows needed. If only the Linux distros they shipped with hadnt been so bad, as most people do not know how to install Ubuntu or whatever to make them work.
... there is no 100Gb ethernet upstream. No point having 10Gb on server without faster uplink.
Flame appears to be a perfectly normal piece of Lua software
Google cache as sited hosed...
This is not new. Peanuts do that for example (thats why they are called groundnuts). They flower and then bury the seed underground...
They are openly saying they will break EU law? Makes the due diligence easier, just say no. Clearly good scope for EU companies in this market then.
Your ISP probably isnt blocking ping, the box they gave you is. You can disable this usually. I had that issue with getting my tunnel working on O2.
And mobile Me is still crap, gives you less than what you can get for free from Google, but for $99 a year. They have not added any convincing services to it since launch either. It was the only way to do over the air sync of calenders and contacts, but now you can do those with Google instead, though the Jobs phone cant have more than one Exchange account.
Nokia is not going to win in services either - look at the Ovi music store.
WP7 phones are hard to differentiate with Microsoft locking down the platform specs to try to stop Android style fragmentation.. oops.
They just called...
They are cancelling the existing packages and trying to get everyone to move to the new ones.
