At first I read that as
Thompson was taped to a chair by Microsoft's board earlier this month...
Re: Instant Erase
Sometimes instant erase is not an option.
I get Microsoft v Apple, Intel v AMD, and AT&T v (the world of the 80's?), but not this. Who is forced to use Google? only the advertisers? It seems to me Google is being punished for being too effective/efficient/good.
How did Lenovo do it?
Start by making something for consumers that is affordable and isn't crap. I love HP servers, but their consumer-grade products are absolute crap, and Dell fell into that hole too. Lenovo & Asus are the only brands I recommend for cheap machines these days, and it has paid off.
A good number of Windows surface tablets sold in Q3 2013 were quickly returned when people realized they had to get all applications from Microsoft. Where is that figure? Friends in retail tell me they are the most returned tablet. Too bad we don't get accurate stats on these things.
YEAH I GOT A NEW WINPHONE!
NO IT'S RUBBISH!
YEAH RUBBISH MATE!
I kinda miss trigger happy TV. I should go download it.
DOLPHIN AND WHALE!
The engineers have made a fine mess of the alphabet with 802.11_ standards. What letter(s) will be next?
Are there ANY benefits to Itanium/IA64 over the Xeons availible at this time? I'm asking about hardware here, not software support or porting issues. I have heard about Intel bringing Itanium features to Xeon, and I'm just wondering what is left? Is the only problem with Itanium the low clocks? high cost? Is the only thing keeping IA64 alive the software lock-in?
Re: More power to them...
...while the rest of the world gets a list of cool sites to check out. I'm sure they appreciate the publicity. /s
Does this one have shingles? I'd like to stay away from the ones that do.
I saw the headline and thought, "WTF is Kinetic Ethernet?" that sounds dangerous.
Typical MPAA spokeswoman sticking fingers in ears shouting, "I'm not listening!"
So it's NOT a source for ginger porn then. They really could have thought up a better name. I really don't see a reason to switch from my Roku3 & PS3. I don't want to buy an HDMI switch either.
Re: Thirteen down...
Fine. Say 1000 took part in what (to them) sounded like a good idea at the time. 13 were foolish enough to leave sufficient evidence to be charged & most likely convicted. It still sounds like a weak attempt to parade some dissidents before the masses.
Re: These are not the droids
Anon is conflicted with the ethics of using botnets to do their DDoSing. Can you blame them? If you wanted to picket a business, would you do it yourself or force others to do it against their will?
Re: Simple Reason
It is even deeper than that. Google advertises Play and Chromebooks within android apps like the one for Kickass Torrents
Re: It's lucky we have infinite energy and natural resources to build and power all of these robots
I see a correlation between scarcity and the desire to breed. How do you convince people to limit population growth to something sustainable? Should we all just pretend that we can reproduce as much as we want without consequences?
Even without another process shrink...
Doesn't this give us even more room & better thermal envelope to add more subsystems to the same chip? The SoC development seems to take away more & more bottlenecks from our systems while giving us more efficiency. I'm sure there will always be the need to connect it all (and upgrade the GPU), but apart from the solid state storage & bus connections, what else can we shrink?
No thanks Seagate. I don't care how big it is.
Transmission / Transmitter
Re: "the world's first commercially available 5GHz CPU,"
I guess an IBM mainframe isn't considered "commercially available"
Re: It's not the stuff you do
So its OK for me to use BSD as long as I know how to deal with it?
Re: Give way to whoever's biggest.
So what we used to call collisions, were now calling mergers?
As an American...
I was impressed when I first saw BT tower from the streets of London. I have seen many comms towers in the US, but nothing as practical looking as this multi-use structure. I'm surprised we don't see more comms equipment on large buildings in the US. There are some, but I feel there is a missed opportunity for some architectural aesthetic value. I think BT tower would fit in with any of our major cities.
a plausible case
...and perhaps shooting at race cars would make them drive faster, but it would also cause equipment failures adding cost & time to the race.
Re: Looks like...
Biological cyber warfare?
This is new?
I thought this was already generally accepted to be the case. Is it only news because there is a new pixelated image of it?
Re: Quick Noob Q.
Fedora has addressed that in their last release, but I have not tried it yet. I'm still waiting for the next Mint and some new hardware to test it on.
As an American...
...what is this Scart cable you speak of? I hace seen the connection on one of my big TV's, but never seen the actual cable in my country. Why was there a need to make yet ANOTHER video connection? Is it any better than the alternatives?
While we may have to wait a long time for exascale computing, its nice to know the network will be ready.
Re: But it takes 2!
It has the deuterium & lithium, but no anti-matter.
we probably couldn't get enough solar power to control anti-matter.
Re: Astonishing and nice!
When can we expect this to be scaled down to a size appropriate for an F1 car, so race it around the Large Hadron Collider? I want to see Wipeout races in my lifetime.
I don't even use TPB...
...but I love hearing that the site is still running around, seemingly unstoppable. Will it ever end? It all seems like one big distraction for politics & law.
Just for one celeb
He just set up the network for Dennis Rodman's visit. Afterward Kim was quoted saying, "Wait, you mean that wasn't president Obama?" (quoted from a completely unreliable source)
According to El Reg, "...T5 and M5 chips run at 3.6GHz."
Is that really a better performer than the zEC12 chip, a 5.5 GHz hexa-core processor?
Beating Power7 is great, but I saw a marketing claim that Larry was about to announce the fastest processor in the world. Am I to understand this was marketing BS as usual?
I'm sure it has been said already, but it is quite depressing to know that the U.S. spent more on the bank bailout than the entire history of NASA's budget. Too bad there isn't enough money in space for NASA to have it's own lobbyists. Too bad our gov is more interested in profit than pure research in general.
Just because it can be done...
...doesn't mean it should.
That must be it
Surely these people are downloading illegally out of simple ignorance. Who could possibly deal with piracy on their conscience? Right
I use honey instead of sugar, and a Keurig with loose tea. These options must be inconceivable to your orthodoxy.
"the best aspects of DirectX 11"
But you don't need DirectX 11 to play Bioshock Infinite. PS3 doesn't use it. Aside from it being the more commonly accepted proprietary standard, What is the best aspect of DirectX 11?
Re: Calm down, it's just a willy...
Don't they have penis festivals/parades in Japan?
Welcome to Florida, my home.
About those prices...
Remember how nice it was to buy storage before the great flood of 2012? Those were the days.
Re: Cinnamon is all very well
includes the alternative MATE and Cinnamon desktops...on the DVD I assume. there doesn't seem to be a live image using MATE. Mint and CentOS have been good enough for me depending on application. For desktops & portables Mint does seem to just work with more WiFi adapters. I'm still glad to see more features added to Fedora, but why can they keep up to date on drivers?
It may not be a mass market, but I would call it powerful, easy-to-use software broadly accessible to consumers. I use it in my own office daily, and can't think of a reason to go back to Microsoft.
Is it hostile?
Perhaps it is natural for space exploration to appear as terrifying as possible. If we keep this up we may never find life that would get along with us, not that we would find any on Phobos anyway. What would you think if you saw these bouncing/floating towards you?
A hop in the right direction
Who knew those old sci-fi movies would accurately predict that this would actually be a landing option? It always seemed ludicrous to me. At least we aren't stuck with all computers looking the way they did 50+ years ago
I resent that stereotype, as a red-headed stepchild who was NOT beaten into adolescence. I understand it is common, but that doesn't make it any more tasteful that using the same standard for people of African-American descent.
Am I the only one around who is actually happy with Android on tablets?
