Re: Rail Guns..
Regarding the heat production: https://what-if.xkcd.com/1/
Seems to me the railgun needs a spiral rail, a porous/perforated sabot and a shaped projectile.
And the best use on a small vehicle would seem to be anti-air/anti-missile- a cloud of Mach 7 ball bearings would seem very effective. I would mount multiple low power rails on a gatling assembly and use it like a point defense gun.

"Linux distros ... don't get viruses, spyware, and ad-ware"
Lies. And Windows doesn't get MULTI-DECADE OLD ZERODAY EXPLOITS that have probably been in use since the beginning. Did you miss all the stories on this very site in recent weeks or something?
Beyond that macs do not dominate
Your narrow journo wine bar life has caused you to miss the most important set of PC buyers outside corporate. Gamers. And we spend thousands and thousands each on PCs that are SIGNIFICANTLY better than the shitty overpiced low sampled crap that you spend even more on.
MS has Direct3D and so wins.

"Similar to what Henry Ford did with the Model T"
Bullshit. They invented nothing. They are history's greatest charlatans.
They may be totally in the right...
...but I want Microsoft to lose. There is a ton of money to be made from the FUD such a ruling would create.
i have more for him than before I read this. My wife's family are german and I am far too lazy to learn.
"would it be possible to cool the reactor coolant with a laser?"
You'd have to get the heat turned into electricity for that for our solid state lasers, and that's kinda what it was doing already. Chemical lasers would not seem to be helpful here at all.
How about a different approach? The heat is the result of neutrons and gamma, beta and alpha radiation hitting various things like control rods and the reactor shielding. So, design a magnetic chamber fission reactor that has none of those things and instead funnels those particles out of the back of the craft for some nice 3rd Law effect,
I have had this phone since release
- In Copper. Lovely.
- Battery life is insane. If the Duracell bunny had a phone it would be this. Uses 20% of a charge a day. When your old phone reaches 50%, its shit I need a charger. When I hit 40% I think, might need to charge at the weekend.
- Its so light and thin you worry about dropping it and can barely tell its in your jeans.
- Walkman app is not good, or any other Sony software in my experience.
- If you buy a Shix over this you are in serious need of mental help.
Why can't they just honestly say...
...when questioned on motivation, "so we make more money and I get a bigger bonus"?
Its a shame they have to spout bullshit like "to better support and service our customers", "better alignment", "investing additional resources".
Just be honest guys. We are not dumb and we can see right through you.
Fuck off Apple. Just. Fuck. Off.
Re: I think you are failing to comprehend the definition of cruel and unusal punishment
There are many better tools. Many, many. Its more like Dictatorship. You MUST do everything EXACTLY as it demands with NO deviations or you will be forced to run nonsensical, undocumented random commands until it breaks irrecoverably.
Its a piece of fucking shit, and if you like it you should kill yourself. Simples.
For his creation of git I sincerely hope his testicles be caught in some industrial mincing machine.
Re: France No Go Area
Unlikely, they have nice weather.
You make electricity!!!! TERRORISTS NEED ELECTRICITY!!!! YOU FRENCH TERRORISTS!!!!!!!
I don't care which particular evil, greedy bunch of lying, cheating scheming cunts gets the profits as they are all the same and as bad as each other. I would burn them all alive.
But it would be great if just ONE of them was made to pay some tax.
Maybe they don't realise that its these very actions that make people want to blow them up.
"Over 90% of what the Customers are paying for is free content."
Well. I think the people who believe they own it would disagree. Not that I think anyone can own any form of idea such as this content.
""The fact that this vulnerability was independently sitting in the public domain in Drupal’s public bug tracking database since November 2013 is interesting"
Interesting use of "interesting". Is this that special "I don't want to libel them" meaning of interesting that actually means "fucking laughably shameful"?
Absolutely. It may be dumb but people are paying for it so we'll sell 'em dumb.
I've always said Amazon should buy Argos. Its the PERFECT eCommerce Real World Store. Whole business is set up for Click and Collect. Fantastic retail locations in and out of town.
Argos is everything I want in a shop: online catalog, same day collection or delivery, free reservation with minimal signup, self service PoS terminals in every shop, no quibble returns policy and I can usually park right outside for free.
Let down by a lousy UberX driver? They probably skipped the 'optional $65 customer service training course'
Re: No thanks
That's great, as a totally invalid term like that voids the entire thing. So you don't have to pay for your service as you haven't agreed to anything.
god i'm so fucking sick of the human race
block anything made by Apple
I like these guys already

"You can't submit code..."
This is true of a lot of FOSS unless you are accepted as a contributor
...there's no content, and they want £10 a month? And you get a crappy white-labelled PVR that won't be as good as your new TVs inbuilt?
"We didn't want to be constrained by TV thinking, we are mobile people." I read this as, "We did no market research and are totally clueless. And if you have a problem we won't be able to fix it".

Zero Days? Shellshock? Social Engineering? Any of the above.
I'd ask "Compliant with what, exactly?".
TBH their response should be contrasted with recent mass-theft of CC data from major retailers, where they lost it, didn't know they lost it, and then didn't admit they lost it when they found out.
I'm not sure why they bother
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Hence all the Linux flavours.
a lot of consultants made a lot of money of this
" the puzzle is why it has taken Windows so long to catch up"
Yeah. Gotta say I have wanted this for years and years and years. When I'm working I have a whole load of programs making up the "state" of a project, if you will. Arranging these on separate desktops has always been something I have thought would make context switching easier.
If programs on "hidden" desktops could be set to suspend that would be handy.
A feature I'd love to have is a Windows 10 tablet as a screen of my Windows 10 PC. I'm sure they can do this for games too if Valve manages it. Perhaps this is already mentioned and I missed it.
Whatever you may think of the phones, those people are total scumbags. Conning people into believing in "fashion" and parting millions of fools from their money on a daily basis.
So they deserve each other.
oh fuck off you lying sack of shit

"This was a very mysterious concept to us."
You have a self-awareness problem then. Coz we could all see what you were going to do. And you did. Hence all the forks.
...raising it to, say, body temperature before the test? Or hotter as my phone at least gets bloody warm when Ingressing.
I'm wondering what heat would do to this. Bet these were all icy cold.

Re: All well and good
Indeed. And they won't be stopping at US companies. If you do any business in the US you'll be subject to the same.

Great way to make yourself popular locally.
Oh he has to pay for some upkeep out of his BILLION DOLLAR FORTUNE. Oh deary, deary me. Poor rich guy.
What I don't understand, is that they knew where he lived, and didn't sort the problem quickly and quietly by drowning the fucker on his own precious beach.
