maybe some video config fixes?
maybe one of them will finally fix that idiotic and fatal video configuration problem. How the hell did that get into stable anyway? If this were a real company a screw up that big would have gotten someone fired.
Smells like teen spirit
Sounds like someone is trying to Osbourne 2 palm. It could be enough to kille em if it works. Is palm working on a new model? Of course. Everyone is always working on a new model. Microsoft is already working on the successor of windows 7. Anything scheduled for 2009 though is undoubtedly software.
there is a lack of due dillegence here
This article is unfinished.
The California academy of sciences is a big organization, and primarily actually a museum. Which part of the organization oked originated or funded the study? For all we know this could have been a 7th grade science class project using the museum website. Museums, especially teaching museums have been known to do that kind of thing for schools.
Finish your research and complete the article please.
just another data mining system
While the changes only appear on your machine I would suspect that google will be taking notes too. T
hey'll be able to do much more accurate target marketing if they get 10 votes per search instead of one.
it makles sense but it doesn't sound very safe
te device appears to use a x-ray lamp and then read it like a sort of compound fluoroscope. i suspect resolution gets better as the cells get smaller and the size of the array increases. What I don't get though is how they are going to keep the operator from getting cancer. If you remember old style radar guns were giving cops cancer, and they didn't use anything near as ionizing as x-rays.
.50cal apparently not rated for IED
It says in the .50 cal article that the weapon is designed for destroying air drop bombs only. This implies it's use against IEDs may be limited. The U.S. army recently mounted a small machine gun on a bomb disposal robot, but they then claimed it's value as a security system rather than for bomb disposal, which implies it's not very good at it.
U.S. forces have a lot of Barnett .50s floating about, how are they at blowing the things up?
this all depends on which definition of innovate you have
One of the great confusions perpetrated by corporate IT is use of the two almost completely opposite definitions of the word "innovate".
The one used by almost everyone is to invent something unusually new. In the language of economics, however, it is used to mean making money off a new idea whether you invented it or not. (This is Microsoft's favorite game)
If the Fed's statement is viewed in that light it means "net neutrality will stop some companies from making indecent amount of money" Also the term effect on the consumer" can be taken both ways.
It's all in how you spin it.
