Neutron star crash in a galaxy far, far... far away spews 'faster than light' radio signal jets at Earth
Re: Hope it's true
AIUI special relativity say that objects with non-zero mass cannot attain the speed of light because energy applied to them just makes them heavier. There is nothing to say that objects cannot travel at the speed of light or faster, just that they cannot achieve that state from sub-light speeds.
I use Notes at work and it is truly appalling. I have been objective and built a list of its faults which currently has 120 entries.What is the worst? Maybe that I cannot read webmail on my smartphone because most on my email is filtered into folders and Notes actively prevents you from reading them.
I like to be objective rather than just saying that Notes sucks. (Others may find different labels for my attention to detail.) I have my own list of annoyances through major defects that runs to over 100 items. Many of those are actions which are unintuitive, the list started as a crib sheet. That compares with Outlook at 21 and Gmail with 4.
Re: But What About Purley?
In that video the unreleased Naples was tested against Broadwell-EP which has been out for about a year. It will be fairer to compare against Skylake-EP when it is released. That will have AVX-512 and presumably the other performance lifts we expect with a new generation.
Browsers vs Antivirus
Avast had a security problem with their SafeZone browser last year too. Comodo’s Chromodo also had a security issue. I personally trust the dedicated makers of browsers over the products supplied by AV vendors. I use Avast on the PCs I look after but use a custom install to exclude SafeZone.
