Re: Don't read this. It's too cringeworthy.

Why are you Russian away so fast?
Don't all GCHQ at once for one...
I'm sure they'll have fixed it in an instant
"I'd love for it to be a massive cluster of small ARM-based credit card sized devices"
Raspberry Pi in the sky?
"Light Emitting Weapon of Destruction - LEWD."
Or Light Emitting Weapon In Situ - LEWIS - I wonder what Mr Page would make of these
Here you go Good Sir —>
Only a complete anchor would make puns in a situation like this...
Funny, I didn't know Netflix makes shows.
You could start off by watching the latest series of Black Mirror which for some reason Netflix made instead of Channel 4 (or the BBC).
In "More from The Register" at the bottom of the story:
RBS sharpens axe again: 900 IT jobs to go by 2020
I wonder how cutting back on IT is working well for them...
Can't you see the ARM that bad jokes like this cause?
Lightroom on my gen 1 iPad Pro runs very quickly and feels more responsive than the "classic" client running on my 32GB Core i5 PC.
Assuming that other ISVs can write similarly fast code for ARM then this could be very good for the end users. If they're already targeting IOS devices then that might be a head start for them

That's what I thought whilst reading it too; however testing all your applications will take a lot longer than that...
That's well weapon
I'm too tyred for that...
Ahhh chainmail, mon amour
No analyst, software-based or human, will be surprised or confused by data suggesting that Breibart readers are wankers.
Sadly I can only upvote this once ->
I'm quite sure analytics data are already full of individuals that visit both porn and religious/political sites....
"Only for research purposes"
More seriously... Statistics like that aren't helpful unless they compare it to the Mk1 eyeball.
"Props"? I thought they used jets these days
That'd be a Maverick move
The Research division of my company has more than this and we don't consider ourselves that big - CERN has multiple hundred PB of data.
You report them to Trading Standards for illegal selling and help get the Company prosecuted. Once you tell the saledroid that you did that with one of their competitors then they tend to leave you alone for some reason...
my phone lives in the same pocket all the time. orientation may vary though.
Orientation is quite easy to fix in code (gravity is always about 1).
A woman might wear trousers one day and then a dress the next which means the phone will be in her handbag.
OK, Hitler us with your best
It looks like it has a gait future...
From the paper linked in the article:
For this, we use a Samsung Galaxy J-1 phone, which is kept in the side pocket of the users’ trousers during data recording.
When measuring gait with a device you need to ensure consistent body placement. In the real world, people keep their phone all over the place which messes up the data. In some clinical trials they put accelerometers in belts, shoes etc. to ensure consistent placement.

They have Intel accelerators there too in some of their other systems. They switched from Opteron to Xeon a few years ago; they'd probably happily switch accelerators too.
So give them what they really want: GPUs and FPGAs.
Sounds like some kind of Nervana to me...
An interesting point about the pricing. At ISC Intel were saying that they were as fast as Nvidia for things like Molecular Dynamics; only cheaper :)
I did test the "new" Lightroom, even on a good 250Mb connection it was dog slow. I decided to leave it and carry on using Lightroom "Classic". I'm on the lookout for a decent Lightroom replacement though for photo management...
They all seem to suffer from regular downtime these days...
And also that you're responsible for "policing" their **** up...
Some of those people are using what appears to be their real names to contact Lloyds via Twitter. Isn't that the kind of information that identity thieves love?
Firefox also got very slow and memory hungry.
That's for your eyes only...
What are you raving on about?
I'd rather pay for a decent pension for their staff than for football matches that I never watch...
ARTHUR DENT: My left arm’s come off too. How am I going to operate my digital watch now?
With one of your digits?
Hopefully all that fibre will keep the sewers regular...
There was a time you'd have a new machine every 18-24 months just to keep up with the needs of your software, but now a combination of better silicon and much more remote application hosting means that a typical business user's laptop will see four years or more of use.
Or perhaps that Intel/AMD haven't produced significantly faster chips for about a decade so people don't think it's worth upgrading any more. The only real significant increase in speed has come from moving to SSDs and that jump in speed is a one off.
Next thing you'll be complaining that there's male and female variants of bike.
I know both small men and large women who refuse to get the bike that fits them the best as they're pointlessly gendered. It'd be great if the bike manufacturers could drop it so people could pick the bike that fits them the best. The only real exception to this is the saddle which is a five minute job to swap anyway.
I guess their customers are screwed...

My reaction -->
Does this mean that your data can be lost by two different organisations instead of one?
A 42U rack can have up to 20 HPE Apollo r2000 Series chassis and up to 80 HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers per rack.
And in many datacentres only about half would be switched on... I think DC design needs to keep up with these ultra-dense nodes a bit better.
It’s great to see the undersung Bristol area getting some attention for its chip boffinery. As well as Graphcore they have Cray’s interconnect group, some excellent groups at the University etc.
