So I can do a "showtime" down the main street during rush hour. I'd like to hit that 25X multiplier and chalk up 30 or 40 million points.
I doubt they lost control at 45mph. 145mph, probably... on a city street.... pretty much any car is dangerous in that situation.
Speeding in most cases isn't dangerous, but reckless driving is, and three times or more than the speed limit is certainly reckless.
I've worked as a tape monkey in a large facility (Camp Foster RASC, Okinawa, circa 1989-90), so I know tapes do work well in the enterprise, but my experience with tapes in the consumer space in the 90s was anything but good. 90% of the tape backups made (using several different formats) using consumer-grade systems were corrupt and worthless.
We took great care with the tapes, but when we checked them (thankfully never needed them, except one occasion), they were mostly all bad.
Optical isn't much more reassuring as a backup media, given that optical discs tend to degrade over time.
If somebody has a tape system that can store terabytes on a cartridge, reliably, for say... $10/TB or less, and the system costs less than $200, I'd look at it, though. Otherwise, it is still more worthwhile just to use hard drives to back up data (even at their inflated prices)
So... if I have a hide-a-key compartment under my fender, and I drive through Ohio, I would be guilty of breaking this law. Those boxes are big enough to "smuggle" drugs, certainly, though only in "criminally" personal amounts.
Without Zimbabwe, I'd never have achieved my dream of becoming a Trillionaire.
Suck on that, Bill Gates.
Strangest of all was the ability of infected machines to transmit small amounts of network data with other infected machines even when their power cords and Ethernet cables were unplugged and their Wi-Fi and Bluetooth cards were removed.
This is as far as you need to read. Geez, Clearly this virus has infected the system and re-written power management subsystems to utilize the CMOS battery to provide enough juice, probably reprogramming an EEPROM on the I2C system to execute code and infect other systems.
Was this article written by a Hollywood screen writer? Who is going to star in this one... Willis? Bullock?
My Samsung TV and blu-ray players work great with a variety of DLNA servers; the iPad, XBMC, WD Media players, Android media players, and LG products also have worked great with a variety of DLNA servers. The problem is entirely Sony's - and I suspect it is more a matter of Sony standing against people who have their own private media servers and the implication of "piracy" rather than anything technical.
My main server runs TVMobili on Kubuntu Linux as a DLNA server, but I've played with some others.
As for the PS4, I'm passing on this generation. I'm putting together a nice gaming HTPC to leverage my family's vast Steam libraries. I'd like to dual boot Windows 7 and SteamOS. I'll have the benefits of a hacked console (emus & other activities) and be able to eat in to my large backlog. If I needed to, I could also use it for accessing the media library, but as I said, the TV handles it fine without any problems.
Except in this case, it is an Islamist who beheaded his wife for "cheating" on him.
I guess restricting beheading videos would be considered racist.
Meanwhile, posting pictures of a girl's head and elbows while she's in a bath, suggesting (only to the lame Facebook censors who have never seen an actual naked woman) boobies will get you banned.
Most people don't hold their phones properly, this won't help. The optimal for a sub-Phablet is the Index twist method, but with the curve suggested by this new design, your fingers won't be able to form properly or will cramp up, so it's back to the "standard" non-ergonomic way. Perhaps some variant of the pinky-curl/ring twist method used to properly hold a phablet could be modified, but looking at the numbers, I suspect only about 30% of most users will have hands the right size to use that hold.
Obviously,Samsung didn't do proper ergonomics studies of the design before moving forward. That's a real shame.
I have a small city lot and two HUGE maple trees. I wouldn't mind them if they are on a back acre or something... but they make landscaping impossible, force me to roto-rooter my sewer line (that runs under my driveway!!) once a year to clear the roots, and removing the trees is too expensive right now. I'd move, but nobody will buy my house with those trees (unless they are suckers) so close.
I've had several large branches come down, I've had to deal with the trees being stressed with some sort of fungus, crapping white stuff all over my pool deck and cars. They survived tornados that passed within 60ft (strangely enough).
Normally, I love trees. I love the forest. I just don't love it when it has become such a nuisance to living.
Yeah, I need about 40 megatons of highly directed explosive force to get through the massive maple tree root system that infests my yard 2 inches under the surface before I can dig post holes for my back yard shed. We always need bigger weapons.
Well, he's got a lot of letters and syllables in his name, so he must be super smart and important, right?
I wonder how this will affect SteamOS, since the Steam Machines are nvidia based. Maybe Valve will start throwing their weight around to get nvidia to offer better Linux support?
TFS should have had the price that was listed in the article. As I said, all the features in the world don't really matter if it is priced out of range for most consumers.
That said, $2,500 is maybe enthusiast levels, but still not low enough for a casual purchase.
No price listed, so I guess it costs $45,000?
Wake me when I can buy a 3D printer off the shelf for less than $300, because as a consumer, price is far more important in adopting cutting-edge "new" technology than enhanced features.
Advancements in capabilities will come when these things are stocked and selling at WalMart and Target.
