lolololololol @ omg made my morning
Ah yes, that lovely documentary showcasing how our brave modern days astronauts most often jet around open space untethered.
Apparently astronauts of the future are a cowardly bunch, remaining largely tethered in their attempt to save Mark Watney from certain death on Mars. (save for that ballsy chemist)
using a Soyuz rocket?
It would surely be space debris and not ocean debris that long into the flight.... But I wasn't in the control room so what do I know.
If you're that suspiscious your spouse is cheating, you're probably right. Skip the creepware.
In the great white north, better known as kanada.
Live in the woods.
I'm (and given the alternative, genuinely feel) "lucky" to have WiMax here for home internet. It's an obscure and mostly forgotten, almost ancient wireless technology that no longer has any relevance almost anywhere else globally. It came as an alternative a few G's ago, and was being touted as being better than the next G, but of course, wasn't. Save for, it has quite good signal penetration, which, in my case, is good, since I'm occasionally shrouded by trees and snow.
The caveat: capped at 5 Mbps. Imagine your entire life, capped at 5. Media. Video. Games. Everything.
At this point, I'd pay $200 a month for "5G" or "Gigabit LTE"
I can only hope one of the wireless players will answer my prayers.
This might put me in unpopular company, but before you hit that little downvote, send me your bandwidth.
Protesting and mobilizing against establishment and the democratic process is destabilizing democracy.
Wall Street, anti Trump rallies, etc etc. I don't need to like my democratically elected leader, in fact I am rarely quite fond of any, but to value democracy is to cast your vote and accept the outcome, or we all risk a far worse outcome than a disappointing election result.
Millenials have adopted a dangerous methodology for starting a conversation.
I hardly think Russia is to blame. Social Media is likely a better candidate.
I live in North America, maybe things across the pond are quite different, but ZTE has virtually no presence here. If it isn't Apple or Samsung, there is very little volume here. It's a shame, because HTC Sony and LG have all made some great handsets over the years, but nobody here ever noticed.
You can get a pretty powerful little Android 4k box for 40 quid, set the interface the way you prefer, and have virtually zero risk to your shiny expensive "display." Furthermore, some even come with a pin insert factory reset. These boxes use very little power.
Since most come rooted I might suggest making a new Google account specifically for your TV boxes to alleviate privacy concerns.
Now we're "smart"
For backing up all of my files and documents to encrypted drives...
Well that really puts a damper on my plan to have 3 blondes at once
So that's why my bloody World of Tanks would ping at 999 on bell mobile
I'm not sure I agree with that 100% considering he's about the "firmest" Prime Minister we in Canada have had in the last few decades. Has the gall to stand up what he believes is right, and hasn't wrapped up the billions of dollars in taxpayers money in scandal after scandal in the way the Canadian Liberals have. If you want to discuss proxy states and NA alliances we can save it for another forum.
I haven't had any experience with ocz SSD's but my heavily overclocked OCZ 1200mhz flex ddr2 has allowed me to still currently play anything virtually on max with an overclocked q6600 dinosaur (using proper updated GPU muscle of course) it'll be a sad day when it gets listed on eBay next year.
Consider yourselves lucky you don't live in Ontario Canada. 300 billion dollars of provincial debt to install wind farms and convert agricultural land into ground level solar farms. Electricity bills? Set to quadruple over the next 10 years. And who needs food when you have a little solar power? The people's response? Re-elect the tard politicians responsible for the mess. I'm all for environmental responsibility on a personal level and have made major efficiency upgrades at home but I've been lobbying against this madness as best I can, because our economy is crumbling. Yay!
While I agree he should suffer dearly, costing taxpayers millions over the years does not seem just. We need to dig a giant deep pit we'll call aussie 2.0 in which we'll dump all the scum into and let them live like the animals they are. Like the prison in Riddick maybe? Now if we can only find some hybrid super cats.
Yeah that was right up there with using the 7xxp resolution 'retina' screen as the benchmark by comparison. I almost forgot I've been wielding 1080p ips androids for 2 years and was just about to rush out for this best ever retina tech circa 2011 android
So you're worried about resale value, but failed to spend the 99cents on a front and rear protector set on ebay? I can assure you all of my Xperia Z1's are mint, front AND back.
Now I can play metro on maximum
To share my cholera selfies
Where the big box retailers shelves are completely stocked with thousands of only the top 5 selling products.
It sounds so creepy I'm ordering online so as to avoid having to look.
Because Symbian was doing it in 2008 and possibly earlier with the E series. It isn't anything new it just came absurdly late to iOS and Android.
Yeah unfortunately this news comes a month after I've prebooked for next week, though not in Nashville. Needless to say I'll be watching out for NetEnforcer, though I'm not exactly sure what the CRTC does if anything so my complaints will likely work as well as my hotspot.
Normally I wouldn't have such a burning desire to upvote stupidity
The gap itself larger than current transistors?
How's the weather there back in 2000? I'll upgrade, and care not at all about streaming. I couldn't stream uncompressed 1080p with my crap connection anyways. I'll be buying a 90 inch 4k for my feature wall as soon as the price comes out of the stratosphere, and I'll watch regular crap compressed HD broadcast TV on it, I'll play PC games which have supported the resolution for years, and the odd 4k blu-ray I pick up out of the bargain bin.
So I simply plug this dongle in to my smartphone, to touch and hold against another device while transferring whatever at the reported 560mbit/s, whenever it will be that devices adopt the standard. Since I currently have to plug this dongle in, why is it that I'm not just using a USB OTG adapter??? 480mbit/s with the aging usb 2.0 and works with virtually everything. granted a second cable is needed but if you are carrying dongles around, you likely are carrying a bag with enough storage for two usb cables. I have fully adopted NFC initiated bluetooth devices, and I already dislike the 4-8 seconds I need to hold the devices together to get a pair. This transferjet requires contact throughout the entire transfer. Cables also require contact, and usb 3.0 hits a staggering 10-20 gbit/s. Not to mention I'd rather plug two devices in and free up my hands, then continually holding devices together while transferring, selecting files, hold, select files, hold and transfer, hold, hold, hold, followed by a "woops I moved them apart let's do that one again".. etc..
Usb otg for me, u c
While I understand the mission is to have the tech embedded, my transfer process logic still stands. That being said, yes Toshiba, you can certainly put it in my next smartphone, it's just not going to be a factor in my smartphone selection process.
Ask the USPTO if apple can patent 'a method for taking a monkey selfie"
The US bans all Chinese imports. China reciprocates.
In other news, all retail outlets and department stores across the US close their doors citing merchandise procurement issues. TESLA has announced it has stayed it's plans for a US production facility as it can not secure any lithium. All US lithium ion facilities grind to a halt.
Let's go to our correspondant in China. TSMC has just received an influx of state funded investment to ramp up R&D and production of home grown semiconductors from the likes of Allwinner, Mediatek and Rockchip. TSMC is also being urged to push heavily to have its 14nm fab ready for mid 2015 and is looking on target. In the meantime they are currently producing at 120% capacity at 22nm. Astounding.
But what about the ban on x86 John?
Apparently all the systems here were upgraded last year. No state department needs a new PC for a few years. Additional optimization is being done here on gpu/cpu coprocessing as a stop gap measure, and is showing some really surprising results. It's unbelievable just how break-neck the chinese tech industry has become over the past three years. Looking around I see a wave of 5.5 inch 1080p chinese made smartphones, a size of which the West still has yet to accept without ridiculing one another. They also seem to embrace the technology itself above the name brand stamped on the device. Quite a peculiar way of thinking I'll never understand but it seems to be paying dividends here in China.
John looking around there it somewhat reminds me of the glory days of US manufacturing with the K car.
(ok surely the Sherman is a better representation of glory days but I digress)
His greatest folly
Not going balls to the wall
Just install some wind turbines... All the magical power of sunshine and butterflies will provide you with all of the electricity you will ever need.
Isn't that right Ontario Canada?
Or maybe it gives you crumbling electrical infrastructure and a good portion of that 300 billion dollars of provincial debt.
Hunh? I get 45 - 55 fps on crysis3 with a gtx 760!AMP and an overclocked q6600 with everything maxed except AA
Now that is 'fun'[ny] shit
And who downvoted the post above me?
I thought it was hilarious!
He could have said the last time he saw a woman on the bins he was inserting her pieces into them, which is where I thought he was going..
Somebody sticky taped some c+ syntax on it and she is enjoying all the codey 'fun!!'
And that steam engineer would be right for the same reason we don't couple diesel engines to generators for anything greater than local emergency power. When you want to drive an 880MW turbine you use steam. The worlds electricity is powered by it for a reason. Energy per KG@538C is not something to be taken lightly. Steam locomotives had to die more due to combustion efficiency and fuel capacity limitations, and of course that pesky risk of BLEVE [boiling liquid expanding vapour explosion] but not power ;)
Now if only lt had 12 cores or even double the power consumption it would be as fast as that Intel chip
Unless you have a product from the future where AMD is once again competitive
Lol! You got me. Admittedly I carried on reading, albeit like staring into the sun. I didn't however make it to the actual story, or find out there is an app to avoid.
It is cheaper, the confusion you are having is arising from you reading the fine print :D
the old price SLASHING + fee JACKING rigamaroll
Quite a simple strategy. Queue the dim lights, the piano music and deep male Brit voice. Start with 'magical' then add a 'first EVER (iPhone) with' ...... carry on to 'revolutionary' (4 inch).... add 'NEVER BEFORE SEEN' (on iPhone) [I can think of a few things there but I digress]
Oh one more thing remember you are the more intelligent and savvy of the human kind.
Insert repeat payment here. Love your purse and heels BTW.

"Yeah right. I'll just get a chromebook and whack Linux on that thanks. Only Windows needs £900 worth of hardware to run it".
Despite me pointing out that obvious inaccuracy, Have you ever considered some people want more than just an 'environment'? How's World of tanks for Linux coming? Runs great on Arm too I suppose? Just because it's not what you want does not rid it of its significant use case.
"Most people with rugged tablet needs will be better served with an iPad and one of the militarized covers."
Most of those control technicians in industry working largely on plc's and windows based infrastructure would make better use of an iPad?? Sysadmins?
Have you ever done compute heavy tasks on an iPad?
I hope for the sake of your IT or control department you aren't involved in procurement
Destroy all monsters,
Please forgive him, he slavishly and blindly copied and pasted that pathetic diatribe from certain legal proceedings that refuse to die
"Fortunately, it was one of ours....."
A Tv set, with a screen, from Apple?? Would be doubtless supplied by Sharp, or Japandisplay, whichever display provider they have sourced, will be much better than a TV made by Sharp? Apple does not make any of the Apple displays on any Apple product. They don't 'make' anything, but instead source parts from different suppliers and source an assembler (foxconn) to put all those outsourced parts together, and load Apple software onboard.
But as always, the fanbois just assume the clouds part and down comes a shiny new product from the same apple tree where once under sat Adam&Eve
And yet again.
Since you are incapable of settling the debate without ACTUAL EXPERIENCE IN THE MATTER, I will settle it.
I am on my 9th, count it, 9th, flagship phone in 3 years, because I can, and buy what I WANT, and what has the best feature set, SoC, etc, not what anybody else tells me to buy. I'll tell you what the perfect screen size is, because I have had phones with screen sizes ranging from 3.5 inches all the way up to 5.7 inches. The perfect size for my average sized hands? (I'm 5'8") It's around 5.2 inches. Do I have the LG G2? No, I'm not a fan of the phone. I have two xperia z1 phones instead.
For what it's worth, when apple finally gets around to that size in around 2018, you'll call it perfect and forgot this debate was going on for years, in order to justify using that almost unusable paltry pathetic little screen for so long.
Isn't it incredible just how fast the world forgot about Blackberry?
