combustion engine cars convert 15% of the chemical energy in their fuel into forward motion. The tesla gets 88% of the energy in its batteries in foward motion. Sure, theres efficiency losses in electricity transmission from a power station to a car charging point, but electric opens up the possibility of using alternative energy sources, like festooning your roof with solar panels and charging with those. the tesla uses energy over 4x more efficiently, from more sources, and you say that dosent change anything? Your wrong, and you should stick to 'summarizing' things you know something about. and we care about his opinion because he heads a successful electric car company. pretty fucking relevant if you ask me. more relevant than your opinion.

You don't abandon a runtime environment, you abandon a product. The product they abandoned happened to be developed on .NET and the new one on Linux (why are we comparing .NET with Linux, they are not the same type of thing, btw).

Point is that platform choices are vastly subordinate to architecture, design, and implementation.

Yeah, but that doesn't help most Android owners (like me), as the carriers/providers can't be bothered to release updates, and Cyanogenmod/AOSP/etc. only cover a small percentage of the market. Google doubtless could come up with *some* way to upgrade older versions of Android, but has opted for the short-term profit of forcing users to buy new phones and increasingly converting Android to closed source so nobody else can offer them updates, either.

FWIW I'm a fan of Android, just a very frustrated one.

+ - Radeon R9 290X Review: AMD's Back In Ultra-High-End Gaming->

Submitted by brittlendor
brittlendor (2623305) writes "Priced at just $550, AMD's new flagship graphics board has arrived. Dubbed the Radeon R9 290X, this brand new Hawaii-based card boasts a 1 GHz GPU clock, 2816 shader units, 64 ROPs, a pixel fillrate of 64 GP/s, and 5.6 TFLOPS of 32-bit floating point performance. The impressive processing specs are backed up by 4 GB of GDDR5 and a 512-bit memory interface for 320 GB/s of bandwidth. Other notable improvements include TrueAudio and a farewell to the CrossFire bridge connector.

While the 250W R9 290X sticks to the same noisy thermal solution as reference Radeon HD 7970s, AMD keeps you from having the same loud experience by implementing two firmware modes: Quiet and Uber. Quiet keeps the fan under 40% duty cycle, while Uber allows it to reach 55%.

With full-blown settings at single-screen FHD and QHD resolutions, this card destroys everything but the dual-GPU HD 7990 and GTX 690, and surprisingly even keeps pace with the $1,000 GeForce GTX Titan. The 290X can even game nicely at UHD resolutions, albeit at lowered settings. And with a trio of QHD screens, a pair of R9 290X's in CrossFire trades blows with a duo of vastly more expensiveTitans in SLI. The R9 290X also shows a marked improvement in frame pacing versus previous generations.

With those performance numbers, the AMD Radeon R9 290X is a contender, at just $550, it's the grand champion. Tom's Hardware gave the R9 290X its rarely-bestowed Elite Award — the first time it's ever been given to a graphics board. Stunning performance at a killer price."

It's not about picking the right one. Beta was way better than VHS. Blu-Ray was way better than HD-DVD. Sony lost. Then Sony won. You won't predict it with any degree of precision. Don't try.

You can choose multiple solutions. Odds are that both or many won't all fail at the same time. So you'll better stagger your mistakes.

Or, you can do what I do. I built my own framework. Then it's mine. It's supported by me. It does what my business needs it to do.

Roll your own. It ain't hard.

Indeede. For another example, I just saw on History Detectives, the first transistor pocket radio (the Regency TR-1) came out in 1954, at a price of $49.95. That would be over $500 today. This was apparently the first consumer use of transistors. What-became-Sony's first effort came out in 1957 and didn't quite fit in your pocket.

> the question is, how much does the engine produce, how much is needed to propel the vehicle.

The engine is mechanically connected to the wheels, so whatever the engine produces propels the vehicle. There cannot be any "extra" energy.

The system can produce more energy by pressing the gas pedal further, using more gas.

There is exactly one energy "leak" in all systems - heat. If you could set something on top of the muffler to convert that heat to something usable ...

Well, come on, maybe it's not a holodeck. Maybe it's a holographic projector in a room fitted with 4 wall-sized PMOLED screens.

They even showed the "rustic" projector rigs jutting out of the walls. TNG didn't give us that, just gave us dialogue expecting us to suspend disbelief.

I don't think it's fair to call what Kirk was enjoying a "holodeck".

I'm interested in seeing whether the writers can show restraint in maintaining it as a degraded technology.

Other missed it, but to me, it was a subtle dig at the TNG writers. The "Continued" writers included this prototype of something leading up to the holodeck, but then they left it behind and didn't bring it up again in the same episode, at all, whatsoever.

Tell me, what technologies introduced in TNG or its spin-offs were just throw-away introductions that didn't somehow deal into the plot? Including in that notoriously crutch-like way?

I think that by bringing in this primitive holodeck precursor and then not mentioning it again, they were doing two things:

1) Acknowledging the mistakes TNG made in relying heavily on the holodeck as an ever-present antagonistic threat to the Enterprise and crew

2) Laughing it off by doing the exact opposite of what TNG did.

I wouldn't be surprised if the writers didn't plan to mention this holodeck precursor again in the series, except maybe as a nearly humouristic element in a single episode. Certainly not the recurring, weird-assed, existential problem the 1701-D faced so often.

An anonymous reader writes "I would like to bring to the attention of the community, and seek your help with respect to, Australian online reseller Kogan, who I recently discovered are knowingly and intentionally infringing on the copyrights of many by copying and commercially distributing GPL'd software on a variety of Android devices and refusing to comply with their licenses, by not providing the source-code to product owners. The software in question includes both the Linux kernel and U-Boot, but most likely other software too.

I have of course contacted Kogan support and was responded to by a staff member; who I believe is their job to illegally dismiss and mislead customers who make legitimate legal requests for GPL'd source-code and the such. I have thus far endured a lengthy exchange from August 24th, 2013, up until my most recent message to Kogan support member Arun, on October 21st, 2013. I suspect it is Arun's job to dismiss GPL requests and the such because during this two month period, a friend of mine also purchased a different Kogan branded Android product and subsequently requested the source code; only to receive near identical responses from none other than Arun."
