Check out the youtube channel cccen - they have some great lectures on all this if you want to know real tech details.

Surely the "new" units they came up with should be written ms, not m/s (which I believe may already be used as a unit of speed)?
But I, for one, welcome our new randomly jumping overlords.
All that technology and they couldn't have bezel-less screens for the wall?
"BoomSound Audio Adaptive"? Get to f@ck.
The fields are full of mules, this is just regular staff "churn" (that's one for the bingo card!)...
You're right; on the second page there's 5, but on the first page (regurgitation didn't even bother getting away from that) it clearly shows more??
Can someone explain the 5 fans to me? I'm sure I can identify 8 (or 16), but 5?...
But the wi-fis gives me the cancers...
Wow, BT upset you today? (icon, as you probably need one...)
Re: Terrorist with an IQ of 51
"Terrorist with an IQ of 51"
That's why he was the teacher; way brighter than the medieval terror bastard students.
Odd all the hate for an RC protocol, which is widely used on many rc vehicles (including large ones) and has a very decent range.
I want to be an early adopter, just to be the first to draw a cock and balls on it. But no doubt the googly engineers have been doing that all through the development phase already...
Surely bing searches could be handled by a Z80 or something smaller? There's only ever two search terms; Chrome and (possibly) Firefox...
Pron module. Only way to make money...
Hopefully they've done a licensing deal with someone (like leica did) rather than actually rolling their own phone. Otherwise it's as good a decision as thinking digital will never replace film...
Re: No Nougat ❤ for the Nexus 5 :(
That's sad news. But I'll just upgrade to a Note 7 then. Oh...
I'm still soldiering on with my S5, couldn't see much of a reason to upgrade until the Note 7 came along.
Now I've been hit with a double whammy; the '7 is no more, and my work are about to molest an iphone onto me.
Re: I'll have one
Me too; I'll even pay for a few of them. By my reckoning the odds of a fire are pretty safe (and obviously I will not be taking it on a plane or anything critical).
Re: Hardware bump
Just to make sure I spec the system correctly, what color crayon?
Death-screen blue, of course...
Surely it's way too soon for an MS Paint upgrade???
words fail me.
(or, rather, I have lots to say but now cannot say anything for fear of falling foul of the serious crime act. An act designed to tackle serious crime, you know, like writing something.)
"...and five and 30 centiGrays of titanium atoms at NASA’s Space Radiation Laboratory."
What about four and 20 blackbirds too?
Hopefully their contingency is sufficient to avoid a cetacean migration citation...
Engineers surely having a laugh; the (already well-commented) thing looking like a Dido (sic) to start with, and then the remaining rocket section having some spooky face thing at the top complete with ears!
Re: Galaxy S5
Mine is regularly updated too; certainly would point to the local phone provider rather than sammy being to blame for the OP's missfortune.
Does this mean I could finally use my dictaphone?
"enough processing power to provide a full home entertainment system."
Did you stop to wonder what this even meant, before blindly copying the press release??
...if it's so difficult for devices to accept "high" voltages without frying, they should have just added a couple more cores to the cable and connector. 1 for 5V, 1 for 12V and one for 24V.
This is the problem where standards are made by companies who sell various "solutions" for problems which don't exist, and where these companies want to freeze out other suppliers.
That USB lead suddenly isn't just a wire with connectors at each end. Not for your benefit.
Re: If you want to prevent this..
It's so easy to design a PSU with over-current protection (in fact I would suggest that every commercial PSU has this anyway).
And it's so easy to design a charging circuit which takes a voltage, changes it to the one required and then controls the charge current to a battery.
Why anyone thought a device requesting a different voltage from a PSU was a good idea is beyond me, apart from obviously making the device slightly cheaper/thinner.
Having (say) a standard (fixed) 12V or 24V 5A-capable wall supply would be fine for most devices. The devices themselves could then convert this to whatever they need voltage-wise.
What is not mentioned here is the extreme costs the government and tv companies had to bear to produce the aether in the first place, not to mention all the modifications to keep pace with the advances in radio transmissions (tv, colour tv, stereo sound, surround sound, HD, 4k etc.).
It's not money for nothing they are asking for!
You need this sort of theatrics as cover when your business has no basis in reality.
Thank (diety) for (man-made/natural/magic/alien) climate change. Extending our knowledge of the earth's past with every extra fraction of a degree.
"I do seem to remember reading something about a condom taxi here in Jormany that promises delivery within the hour."
I love all the "think of the children" comments on these daily fail stories.
Cue the downvotes, I can take it...
Can they extend the wales argument to other things? Boo hoo they have slow internets, but they have traffic free roads, rolling hills and greenery etc. etc. Things which londoners probably do not have. Everyone cannot have everything.
So basically this is the lawyers trying to ensure that even if all other jobs get replaced by machines, they'll still be utterly vital?
I'm not saying it's aliens, but...
"... try to game the Facebook AI..."
I would imagine 4chan (or whatever the kids use these days) is already all over this :)
Surely they could fall foul of all the missuse of computer equipment hacking type charges often levelled at hackers of government systems? It's one thing finding weaknesses and reporting them to the manufacturer so they can be fixed, but quite another making a quick buck first.
Re: Please consider changing the title
Care to explain exactly why it's inappropriate, or did they change it already and now it's OK? Or are you just offended and therefore think it's down to others to un-offend you?
The struggle is real; how do we say we're against a particular group in this modern pc sjw world, without offending any precious little diddums?
"Latest Company Resorts to Drone Story to Advertise Products"
Move along, nothing to see... (pie in the sky?)
I'm just amazed they waste board real estate with a 2 chip solution for touch. I'm no expert on current technology (and I do not have one of the affected iphones) but afaik it does not offer anything more than standard touch stuff, does it?
"I prefer my robots rude and competent."
Given where the devices were probably made, could we say that maccy Ds gave the kid a Chinese burn???
A bit off topic., but I must have been asleep; when did all this PC CE and BCE nonsense take over? If it's a direct match to AD and BC, then why not just use AD and BC?
"FACT: Apps are like software..."
Thanks for that :)
This looks totally awesome.
I cannot even imagine how much my productivity will be improved when I can sit at my desk and get my laptop to produce a virtual desk I can virtually sit at, while virtually typing on my virtual laptop.
Think of the further future; that virtual laptop could run a VR laptop of it's own, complete with a VR me typing on it. Multiply this up, and it will be like being in between two mirrors; millions of me, all typing! Think of the number of characters I could produce per keystroke!
"Its in-built rotational and positional sensors will update the images you're viewing at a resolution of 1080x1200 per eye at a 90 Hz refresh rate"
Er, what? Was this copied directly from the daily fail or something?
So the internal screens are apparently 1080x1200, but it needs to be connnected to a PC capable of that resolution at 90Hz refresh rate (i.e. something with a decent graphics card).
Please try to maintain the tech bit of this tech news site.
I'm glad that yet again, el reg has taken the time to research this story fully, and explain how the infection is possible, if it requires additional acceptance clicks or settings etc. That's why I read articles on a tech site.
Doesn't matter, got my click.
