AMD promises 100 gigabyte/second memory

cyke1

Re: Promised?

Um mantle being open, no DX12 in the works when anoucing mantle, no new hardware needed for freesync when new scaler in monitor was needed, Bulldozer making them back competitive with intel, power of their APU's (they are even getting sued by investors over this one). I could go on but you get the point.

Promised?

AMD has Promised a ton of crap over the years and end up not being able to live up to those promises. So I will wait til they prove what they claim.

Roku 3: Probably the best streaming player on the market ... for now, at least

cyke1

Re: Roku Media Player

DLNA requires re-encoding of video to support its spec so its no better then plex/serviio.

cyke1

I wouldn't call it best streaming, as it has almost 0 local support for video files on a network outside some complicated 3rd server software. My old Boxee supports playing just about everything stored on my desktop, MkV,AVI,OGM,MP4, ETC. via Windows file shares. Yet natively roku can't do that without plex or serviio. I own Both.

Saudi Arabia hires 'ethical hackers' to silence smut slingers

cyke1

"Saudi Arabia's prude police have hired ethical hackers to pop hedonistic Twitter accounts identified for spruiking smut leading to arrests."

So they call them ethical even though they will be hacking/cracking a companies servers that are not in their country? Another issue is "smut" as they call it, who determines what is Smut and what isn't? Problem with this if the owner of said accounts don't live in Saudi Arabia they have 0 right to attack anyone's twitter account and take it over cause they don't like what they say.

Apple's 16GB iPhones are a big fat lie, claims iOS 8 storage hog lawsuit

cyke1

Sadly if they win this lawsuit it owns up lawsuit against pretty much any phone makers, computer makers, etc. Anything that has storage in it cause there is what its max space is but OS for said device takes some some of it.

Blind justice: Google lawsuit silences elected state prosecutor

cyke1

That would be all well and good if that was what the case WAS about. It wasn't though, it was MPAA wanting Hood to put pressure on Google over movie piracy. They put the illegal drugs crap in as a smoke screen for what it was really after. Just like how when they tried to push SOPA through they claimed it was focused on things like child pornography, which was the smoke screen for MPAA/RIAA to get blocking of sites in the US on a ISP/DNS level.

Google sues Mississippi Attorney General 'for doing MPAA's dirty work'

cyke1

Hard to believe a politician to start with but when he goes after a company that MPAA has had years of difficulty getting them do what they they think is enough which even then won't be enough in their eye. That 1+million $ donation kinda says you aint doing this for the children, that is like how they claims SOPA was to shutdown child porn on the internet, its nothing more then blatant smoke screen for what its really intended.

Mom and daughter SUE Comcast for 'smuggling' public Wi-Fi hotspot into their home

Its not as open as you think, i think you are still required to login with your comcast account to use those hotspots.

Re: Hope they win.

You as a customer can opt out of it and not have it.

"and places a burden on their bandwidth and electricity bills."

Thing with what they claim burdens their electricity, that is a stretch since the router is already there using power for your home wifi anyway, the open doesn't incur anymore power then if its off. Bandwidth well, you are not charged for any bandwidth used by the open wifi as that is separate.

Microsoft tries to defend Irish servers from US g-men invasion, again

cyke1

Re: Good on Microsoft

NSA might already have the data, but if it was used in a case against a company or someone it would be a problem in the fact how that data was obtained. Likely would be ruled as obtained via illegal tap or another illegal means so would be deemed inadmissible.

Top Apple exec: 'I knew [ebook] prices were going to go up – hell, the whole world knew'

Re: Shock: Vendors want prices to rise

And the fact the contract Apple wrote up for deal with publishers that no other place couldn't sell the books cheaper then what is on itunes store. Apple got what they deserved when court made them bend over.

Apple tried to get a ban on Galaxy, judge said: NO, NO, NO

Reason they dropped all lawsuits outside the US was Apple didn't have the judges in their back pocket. Slide to unlock was ruled invalid everywhere outside the US.

Infected Chinese inventory scanners ships off logistics intel

cyke1

Stuff like this doesn't happen less its an inside job, they can deny it all they want but chances that a rogue outside hacker that gets this kinda axx are insanely remote. They would need source access and time to modify the source and make sure it work's.

Apple, Google: WE SURRENDER ... to each other in patent war truce

cyke1

eh

"That looks unlikely. Apple is currently beating Samsung like a red-headed stepchild in the courts, and secured a $120m judgment against the company earlier this month"

You mean they been beating Samsung in a court house that might well be held on Apple's front lawn as court house is stones throw from their HQ, not a conflict of rigged jury in that case.

Apple patents Wi-Fi access point location lookup

Yea apple will just get all the end users to do the leg work.

"The other get-past-the-prior-art inclusion in the patent application is height – so if, for example, you're closer to an access point known to be on the second floor than the first floor, Apple can guess that you're on the second floor."

How would it know you are closer to 1 point and not another? Say there is router on floor below you and you are standing right above it and other is at other side? Then it could say you are on 1st floor not 2nd?

Report: Apple seeking to raise iPhone 6 price by a HUNDRED BUCKS

i would take that bet, Apple is just that greedy to make the smaller one 100$ more and jacked the price of the larger one 2-300$

Apple DOMINATES the Valley, rakes in more profit than Google, HP, Intel, Cisco COMBINED

cyke1

well when you can take hardware that cost same as everyone else's and sell it at 2-300% mark up, yet people still buy it cause they are idiots. You will have insane profits, google may not have the insane $ but they are seen as a much better company as most their products are FREE.

Apple to flush '£37bn' down the bog if it doesn't flog cheapo slabtops

cyke1

"Equity research analyst Rod Hall said the fruity firm was missing out on a huge market by failing to produce a cheap-ish mongrel laptop priced between $500 and $1,000 (£300 and £600)."

they already had the ipad at 6-700$ and laptop at 1000ish$. On top of that Apple don't know how to make a cheapish, they believe they can crap in a box and it will sell for 100$

AMD unveils Godzilla's graphics card – 'the world's fastest, period'

cyke1

AMD claims 500watts, but most tests show single 290x's pulling more like 300 watts so this card most likely in the end will eat closer to 600watts. 2x8pin's per specs are 150watts each (they can do more but still)

Haunted Empire calls Apple 'a cult built around a dead man.' Tim Cook calls it 'nonsense'

It pretty much is, they haven't innovated a thing since what? 2010-2011ish? Just rested on marginal updates to all its products while trying to sue all their competitors outta the market that have been making better products for last 3 or so years.

Big Content wants Aussies blocked from Netflix

cyke1

Comes down to scope of the contracts, if netflixs contract for licensing doesn't restrict Australia then not much they can do legally. They can try to push for laws to block them but in the end it will just piss off the people. They have to tread lightly on this cause pissing people off and blocking access to content in hopes they come to them for it ends up having completely opposite effect.

Apple patents touch-sensitive controls for MacBook

cyke1

Um look at LG/Samsung's TV's over last least 5 years, good number of them have had touch sensitive controls on them. My 400$ 32inch LG tv that is about 4 years old has them.

Re: Okay not on the bezel

my LG tv is 4 years old and has bezel touch controls, my brothers tv is 5-6 years old and it has them as well. I just worked on a friends laptop that has touch controls on it though not on bezel and it was a machine that game with vista. So taking current tech and putting them on screen bezel is not an innovation, just re-purposing current tech and trying to act like they are innovative.

Apple, Samsung get a room to settle patent war. Forgive us if we don't hold our breath

Apple will never settle, they will ask for some stupid amount for their bogus patents yet claim anyone else's patents are worth only pennies.
