the whole hdd vs flsh is just a matter of return on investment
the companies who build the hdd manufacturing plants are squeezing then out for maximum profit, and until the profit they can get out of the old manufacturing still outperform what they could get from new (costly) flash manufacturing plants, the will still continue to produce hdd (at cheap prince)
the moment the beancounters calculate it has become less profitable to make hdd, then yes they will finally die (as in price will go up),
what I wonder is if at that same moment flash price will go down, I mean down to the same pricing as hdd for equivalent storage space.
im pretty sure we are entering a turbulence period and I dont think will exactly be in world+dog customers interest
it is still my main browser, mind you,
but I use it:
- with auto-update disabled, to prevent it from breaking yet another extension without warning,
- with Classic Theme Restorer, because if I wanted to use something that looked like Chrome, I would be using Chrome, seriously ....
that said, im not going to change, because the few time I use Chrome it make me want to murder the Google marketing retards who take the decision of commanding dev to produce such a simplified crapple like product.
please folk, dont forget these kind of drives will probably never go to common consumer market:
companies rely on sales to make a living, so they need to either sell a lot of (relatively) small capacity devices at a (relatively) low price, or sell a few gigantic capacity devices at a gigantic price to keep making enough profit.
meaning we will *never* see such capacity drives on consumer market, simply because:
a) most consumers *dont* need such kind of storage space and,
b) most consumers would never pay a pay the gigantic price of professional hardware and,
c) even if consumers would in total irrationality buy one of these device at a gigantic price, they would only buy one for their whole life (or at least very very few) because thats plenty enough to store all your instagram pictures for a lifetime.
so entering the consumer market with such capacity drives is simply economically *not* interesting for storage companies,
they will stay in professional market, with corresponding pricing
on a few forum (where that option is available), I have decided to pay a small one time fee to get ride of the "you are using adblock" notices and participate financially to content I access often, as that seems fair.
but I rarely see this option, often is is simply "enable ads or we disable our content!" which turn me off everytime.
there is simply no content I would want to see so absolutely I would be ready to re-enable advertising display....
I live in Switzerland,
the situation is far from being nice and lovely: the relation with EU are complicated, any political agreement is a nightmare and there is little way of latitude for internal policies not going the same way as the EU.
Please dont ever think not being in the EU is an easy path and will solve all problem, that's a complete utopia.
I fear I still fail to understand the idea of "securely publicly published" urls.
if the url is publicly published, as in anyone can see it, the fact the url is shortened or not is completely meaningless.
so, shouldnt the problem be that these urls have been publicly published in the first place?
or is it the idea that the url contains some authenticating token that may be extracted by brutforcing the shortened urls to be then able to access other content stored a the same place ? but then you are stupid if your token give read AND write and not read only .........
"It is imperative that W10 – Microsoft’s last chance to remain a company with its own OS rather than just a multi-platform service provider – succeeds.."
how? by forcing the OS to its user base? is that a sign of success?
since most people either don't bother or are not tech-savvy enough to know better, it may work.
but if M$ continue to ignore their users, more and more people are going to look elsewhere, as many comments of TheReg articles have shown ...
I don't envision any improvement in M$ business result, if they stubbornly continue in their current track. Though with their size, it will probably take some time before ill effects start being really noticeable.
What I would really be interested in is if the life span of the animals in the dead zone is the same as elsewhere.
Im really not surprised to know that life is thriving in these dead zone, but maybe mostly simply because human are not there anymore?
So I would like to know if that aspect has been evaluated, i.e., did they study the age repartition of the various species and what the result was.
Then and only then, if the life span of the animals is the same as elsewhere, then yes I will believe that radiation danger may be exaggerated...
1) pay some online service officially distributing the stuff you want to watch
2) get the stuff you want to watch off torrents, saving you all the hassle with overcomplicated setup, crashing system, disappearing content, etc..
win-win: producer get paid and you get to watch what you want without any problems
I dont forsee the disappearance of pirated content any time soon
future cars will certainly rely on several technologies and not *only* lidars, so I dont think we have to fear any technology limitations.
beside, if you take current ABS and ESP, there is already sensors reading allowing to "know" (calculate) when the car is on the right trajectory or not and afaik nobody is having second thought about these systems.
when future systems will be implemented in production series, I guess they will have at least as much testing as already implemented systems.
the sentence "having decided that the last thing he needed was a doctor" really tripped me off.
knowing how serious back problem can be, any sane person would go the nearest hospital to get a check. I would certainly not jeopardize my health for the rest of my life just to have a sever up and running a bit sooner :/
