Ken Ham: "God is Great"
Islamist: "Allāhu Akbar"
It's important to keep these people in the news.
We all need a reminder of the dangers of magical thinking.
She got to keep her hat and head since Brits can't be arsed to overthrow the monarchy.
Now your beloved ruler gets made to regurgitate phrases such as "social cohesion" and "tackling extremism" as David "I'm a real human" Cameron fondles your collective privates.
Feels bad Clegg :/
A well-versed YouTube uploader can do a lot with no budget, and a lot more with a high-end camera or better animation software. GPUs are improving much faster than CPUs, and will reap the benefits of Moore's law right to the "end" at 1 to 5 nanometeres in 2020-2025, before cores start being stacked and we get Moore decades.
For comparison, Big Hero 6 used a cluster with somewhere between 500 teraflops to 2 petaflops of performance, 589+ TB of RAM, 690+ TB of storage, and used their Hyperion software to create diverse, realistic feeling background crowds with loads of ray tracing. It's not Earth-shatteringly difficult to obtain 128 GB of RAM, a couple dozen terabytes of storage, and a few teraflops of performance now, and although there may be a similar gap between what hardware Disney/Pixar and amateurs can buy in 10 or 20 years, the capability gap will shrink. The software will get better to the point where Disney will sing "Let It Go" as it lays off extra animators. Such improvements will trickle down to the lone animator.
Computer animation will allow for small filmmakers to create expansive greenscreen worlds (decent CG is well within the reach of TV shows now), and eventually, virtual actors, perhaps based on famous dead ones. You can expect speech synthesis to advance too. Input an actor's filmography, press "Go". Personality rights may become as big of a battle as copyright in this scenario.
Here's an experiment: load El Reg. Then disable Adblock/NoScript/Flashblock/whatever and try again.
"Kaspersky says the financial damage could tip $900 million due to a series of $10 million transactions that are difficult to track."
Phone the DEA?
Everybody's a toy!
"evil Hugh Laurie’s monologuing about what a waste of space humanity is rings a little too true"
So he reprises his role as Dr. Gregory House then.
Apple Windows Enterprise Edition is no joke.
OMG it was unethical that he bought a few dollars of free grub using an exploit... even though he paid back the difference. Choke on it.
Here's a Redditard I can agree with:
"You should always get authorization to perform an attempt to exploit a system. If someone does not want to pay for sufficient pen testing or have outside security companies review their code, then that's their own problem. People don't need to do this stuff out of the goodness of their heart. If anything, giving freebies like this encourages companies to be careless and not spend money on proper testing."
Four beers: meh
"The change is currently only in the US and, at the moment at least, only on mobile devices. But in order to have access to its real-time feed Google is seemingly paying Twitter a standard flat licensing fee."
"Twitter has crawled to Google to get Tweets displayed in the ad giant's search results once again. The micro-blabbing site previously had a deal with Mountain View to provide feeds of tweets directly within its search results."
They might be useful the first time you enter the restaurant, but are you expected to reuse it or clean it somehow?
If they are offering these things at restaurants, how come a slightly better Surface 3 keyboard costs $130?
Where is the mandatory Facebook login for El Reg? Can we get rid of these "Anonymous Coward" posts please?
Baloney. It has single window mode, and exporting as JPG/PNG/etc. rather than saving encourages the use of the XCF format which is the equivalent of Photoshop's PSD. That's about a 15 second learning curve.
It amazes me how many people are ready to talk smack about GIMP citing the dumbest examples of why it is "bad", "bizarre", or "doesn't listen to users".
$900 million to "get" Intel to do what it has done for several generations, make chips that use less power.
Internet of Everything? Is this the next profitable phase of IoT?
more myth than man
>He was utterly irresponsible and deserves the book thrown at him.
The ends justify the means. As it stands hundreds or thousands of people are flying in identical airplanes right now and could crash the plane using the entertainment system. The longer a crappy manufacturer keeps a problem like this under wraps, the more entrenched the problem becomes. If Roberts has been talking about these issues for years, clearly he needed to endanger lives to save lives. If he gets punished for this, he should be pardoned.
Say that to Worstall's face, in London.
Someone will code a driver to make it work with Linux or Mac once it's released IN 2016.
Or will this have DRM preventing that?
Something that isn't out until Q1 2016 doesn't run on Linux or Mac "yet"?
No timeline? The thing is a glorified face-strapped monitor. Perhaps these pesky Linux and Mac (and SteamOS?) users will make it work by themselves.
I think it's an idea that could work for somebody. Especially in rooms with a couple of light fixtures. Put it several rooms, pair it with some detection system to pump music/radio in when you are in the room. Or just turn them all on at the same time.
If you have a six figure income, IoT World products sound great.
Metahate is OK
Just make a pseudonym, and grow some skin, backbones, finger muscles, etc.
Driving a Tesla? Are you crazy?!
World peace will come about when everybody is browsing Facebook using Oculus, while consuming numerous caffeine pills in a self-driving Tesla.
Alibaba wants to live through the Matrix
>"For too long we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone,” Cameron said in a government press release.
That's the summary. Quote of the century right there.
Why not use the public domain imagery in question?
Is this project meant to be low-cost alternative to ground-based adaptive optics observatories or is there another good reason for using a balloon to look at a pulsar?
I don't see how a screen grab defeater is possible. If it reaches the user's eyes in a non-fuzzy or readable form, it can surely be captured in some way (without the analogue hole, even).
Rather than waste $$$ on overpriced USB 2.0 flash sticks with the Reg logo, I'd spend that money on one of the mugs, or the glowing export restricted radioactive materials.
Two accidents at under 10 mph. Chances seem excellent that the automated car was not at fault.
The US restricts what models of Intel and AMD CPUs can be exported to various countries for various purposes. With the Elbrus, the Russians can ignore the American "chip blockade" and do whatever they want. This is the same reason the Chinese are building their own CPUs based on MIPs designs.
Russian supercomputers will continue to use American chips:
There is no chip blockade for most, and 65nm 800 MHz chips aren't going to cut it for most users (supercomputers, military, or even school laptops).
I expect we will hear more about the Chinese blockade by June.
I like having the review summary at the beginning rather than the end.
The Room transcends filmmaking, turning it into an actual art form.
What about FRYLOCK and MEATWAD?
Kudos to the Reg reporters involved.
Duck Soup is one of my favorite comedies.
The hundreds of millions of dollars from gTLD applications and auctions could sustain the ICANN beast for quite some time.
I wouldn't be surprised to see them do it again... after all there are many strings yet untapped.
The right way to visit news sites.
Qualc should be applauding LG for using one of their hex-cores now that octa-core has been the rule.
And the Silicon Gold EVAPORATES IN A VIOLENTLY EXPLOSIVE *POOF*
How could Apple do this to their target market of hipsters?
Close the office and move it to the U.S. where there is freedom of the press. That's what the Granuiad did.
iPad on the desk, palette/tools on the wrist, could be the ultimate undocked window for tablet artists.
...Or a steaming pile of garbage, I don't really know.
