Re: An interesting turn.

Exactly, those who can handle the truth know that these criminals created their own demise. It's not the system, it's not the cops, it's the criminals who determine their own destiny.

PayPal fixes critical account switcheroo bug after researcher tipoff

BornToWin

Good job

Those who are honest are not motivated by the amount of money they receive as a reward, they are motivated by doing what is right. If the amount of the reward is what determines what a person does, then they have no moral compass and that will eventually be their downfall.

Manning's lawyer plans presidential pardon campaign, says client will appeal

BornToWin

I'll take odds on this

Manning and his lawyer haven't got a snowball chance in Hell of a presidential pardon. There is probably less than 1% of people in the U.S. that think what Manning did was right. That leaves roughly 90% who think Manning is guilty of treason. The judicial system is in place to protect society from predators like Manning. There isn't any chance of a presidential pardon for him.

WikiLeaks: Manning guilty verdict sets 'dangerous precedent'

BornToWin

Wow, 136 years !

That would be great if the judge gives Manning the full 136 years in prison without parole. Now THAT would be justice for a change. Blighty could learn something from this case regarding punishment for cyber crims.

AMD's newest chip: Another step toward 'transformation'

BornToWin

AMD is focused on all viable revenue streams

AMD is not abandoning the X86 market at all. They are just expanding their offerings into other markets as the PC industry matures and sales plateau. This is what all businesses must do to survive. Intel's sales are down as are most companies in the PC industry.

This ain't rocket science

There is no doubt that the more information that is disseminated on hacking, the worse the problem is going to get so I support the ban on this disclosure. Those who actually need to know this info. will be able to obtain it. There is no doubt that a number of white hats by day are black hats at night. Hopefully they burn in Hell for their crimes.

For pity's sake: DON'T MOVE to the COUNTRY if you want to live

I'll bet the statistics don't account for rural aspects of living

I'll bet the statistics don't account for occupations and activities of rural residents, which would again make city living far more dangerous. Daily auto accidents alone in city environments raise the risk of death or serious injury.

As far as the U.S. is concerned I doubt life is any wose there than in Blighty or other parts of Europe.

Intel lifts veil on future 14nm Xeon, Atom server chips

BornToWin

Actually NO

Die shrinks below 32nm have resulted in almost zero compute performance gains as Ivy bridge and Haswell confirm. The primary benefit to smaller die shrink is lower power consumption - but even with lower power consuption the transistor density creates serious cooling issues which require slower CPU frequencies or expensive cooling systems. The days of significant gains from die shrinks are long gone. AMD's 28nm Jaguar core CPUs are as good or better than Intel's 22nm chips as far as CPU performance per watt and overall power consumption is concerned.

How do you drive a supercomputer round a Formula 1 track?

BornToWin

Lotus F1

Lotus F1 is just branding no matter how many Lotus you see in the parking lot. In fact there was litigation over this a few years ago. Lotus F1 is only Lotus in name.

That being said they do pretty well for a mid-budget team. Their chassis seems to be a fundamentally good design that is adaptable to most tracks. CFD is a catch 22 in that the results are only as good as the data input and the software. While Boeing is certainly an expert on airflow, the airflow on a vehicle traveling on the ground vs. in the air is considerably different.

US secret court renews government telephone snooping

BornToWin

Let's be honest

The majority of people in the world are clueless. They have no idea that their very security has depended on national and world surveillance since the world wars. If these clueless masses had any idea of what the security people do to protect them from harm every day, they might understand the necessity to monitor all forms of communication. Alas, most people are simply too dumb to appreciate the efforts of their own governments and allies. It won't matter how much you try to educate them because they have no understanding of how the world really operates because others have protected them for decades.

AMD is 'transforming', will be profitable this quarter, says CEO Read

BornToWin

AMD is moving forward

AMD has definitely found new markets and products that are helping them rebuild in a very bad economic environment worldwide. That's impressive. A $29 millon quarterly loss on a billion dollars in sales is insignificant in the grand scheme of business. Some of the previous quarters AMD made good money but showed negative numbers because they purchased SeaMicro, bought out of exclusive CPU production with GloFo, etc.

Someone who doesn't understand the accounting - and there are many who fall into this category, falsely conclude that AMD has only experienced red ink in recent times, which is untrue. In addition SeaMicro will be bringing in nice revenue and developing new micro servers by Q4 of '13. It's good that AMD has made the painful transition but they seem well positioned going forward despite the naysayers.

UK investigators finger emergency beacon for 787 Heathrow fire

BornToWin

So once again the kneejerk reaction is wrong

I'd have no reservations flying on any current commercial aircraft. The 787 battery deal was a fluke and has now been over-engineered to compensate for what may have actually been a slight battery manufacturing issue. That of course won't stop the clueless media from hyping every incident from a bug hitting the windshield to an uncleaned seat pocket...

AMD fools Wall Street, posts smaller loss than expected

BornToWin

AMD is doing better

no matter if you use GAAP or non-GAAP, AMD is doing better in a very dismal economic environment worldwide. The one penny diff between GAAP and non-GAAP is meanless. What is important is that AMD's console contracts account for approx. 5 Million custom APUs over the next few years. It also sends a clear message that AMD's APUs are superior and the future as they are literally changing the PC landscape for the better and forever. Discrete CPU/GPU components will be a very limited market segment going forward in all market segments as APUs are superior in price, performance and energy consumption.
