+ - $3000 GeForce GTX TITAN Z Tested, Less Perf than $1500 R9 295X2->

Submitted by Vigile
Vigile (99919) writes "NVIDIA announced its latest dual-GPU flagship card, the GeForce GTX Titan Z, at the GPU Technology Conference in late March with a staggering price point of $2999. Since that time, AMD announced and released the Radeon R9 295X2, its own dual-GPU card with a price tag of $1499. PC Perspective finally put the GTX Titan Z to the test and found that from a PC gamers view, the card is way overpriced for the performance it offers. At both 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 (4K) the R9 295X2 offered higher and more consistent frame rates sometimes by as much as 30%. The AMD card also only takes up two slots (though it does have a water cooling radiator to worry about) while the NVIDIA GTX Titan Z is a three-slot design. The Titan Z is quieter and uses much less power, but gamers considering a $1500 or $3000 graphics card selection are likely not overly concerned with power efficiency."

+ - Biodegradable Fibers as Strong as Steel Made From Wood Cellulose->

Submitted by Zothecula
Zothecula (1870348) writes "A team of researchers working at Stockholm's KTH Royal Institute of Technology claim to have developed a way to make cellulose fibers stronger than steel on a strength-to-weight basis. In what is touted as a world first, the team from the institute's Wallenberg Wood Science Center claim that the new fiber could be used as a biodegradable replacement for many filament materials made today from imperishable substances such as fiberglass, plastic, and metal. And all this from a substance that requires only water, wood cellulose, and common table salt to create it."

I have used my voice reader many times with Pale Moon and works perfectly. I have studied Firefox's accessibility features list and I haven't found anything that isn't supported by Pale Moon or the OS. I am using Pale Moon with font override for months since I don't want to give web authors another means to connect to Google for custom fonts.

I didn't care for the optimizations either, though people in the forums claim the gains are tangible. I started using Pale Moon after Firefox v4 because I didn't like re-editing my userchrome.css file every time Mozilla decided that Firefox needed a face lift.

Long computations which yield zero are probably all for naught.
