Why 16 VMs? If you're looking to learn VMs and/or advanced networking, then sure go that route. If you're just looking to save some time, just get 16 old laptops or netbooks with ethernet.
Actually, Samsung and LG killed the trade show star. They're so hell bent on one-upping each other, they barely dream of something before shoveling it into the marketplace. C'mon, two Note 4's?
So anyway, these trade shows are little more than a bunch of products they're not going to manufacture, plus a few products that they are. But none of them are new, cuz you've already read about them, long ago, probably right here on Slashdot.
And I'll create a starivore for you. It'll take a while, but should be more fun than staring at empty space.
I believe it's called an "aspheric lens". That's the lens that's flat on one side so your eyes don't appear warped to everyone else. Also, if they're not progressive or bifocals, they're called "single vision".
The next version of Scheme
I kinda doubt the thing named itself. More likely the author named it that.
Can I have my Grammar Nazi sticker now?
That's no space station, it's a planet!
You think Facebook did market research before starting up?
Yes, basically. According to the movie, Zuckerburg copied another in-development app, one that was likely to be successful. And being at the school he saw a need that he carefully wrote his app to fill.
"Market research" doesn't need to be charts and surveys; if you know your field well enough you can generate good ideas.
I suspect cheap and huge computers had a large effect too. I haven't done a 3D print, but the app that slices an object for printing and plans the head path probably takes a significant amount of CPU and RAM. The printer could easily have been built in the 80s, but only recently have home computers become powerful enough to drive them.
Citation needed. Govt projects still need "advertising" at least inside the govt to convince people it's worth spending money on this mission. Probably much lower than for films, but can't be sure.
My camera-nerd friend loves the new Sony a7s, as it's optimized for video. Considerably less expensive than this.
If I were to hack an image sensor, I'd work on phone cameras. At this price range, I expect the thing to be awesome out of the box, so "open source" doesn't really add anything.
So that just means the project is not for me. I hope it's successful regardless, but I suspect it's much cooler for the inventor than it will be for the users.
I agree with most of your post, but this is simply false. USB 3.0 is a completely new interface, bolted on USB 1/2 to make it seem like a seamless transition.
I've been wondering about that -- Since a USB 3 port has separate pins for ultra-speed and high-speed, shouldn't I be able to plug two devices into the same port?
But if the claimant doesn't have any copyright authority, I don't believe the claim is actionable under the DMCA. If I claim your video violates someone's copyright, YouTube is under no obligation. If I claim the video violates my copyright, only then is YouTube obligated to take down the video. And this triggers the perjury clause.
Yup, I've been watching too much How It's Made.
20/20 is the ability to read things made of lines 1 arc-minute thick. If the letters are smaller, you might not be able to read them, but you can tell tell it's text because the rods and cones are much more dense than that. "General colored images" usually have texture.
Another big value that's not discussed often is that the higher the resolution, the harder the pixels are to see. This is why even 480i content looks better on an HD TV -- it's a much smoother, cleaner picture. Also, through some quirk of physics, when my eyes de-focus I can see pixels.
Be sure to test every tape with the TBC on and off. I've noticed a hint of pixelation with it on, and the dynamic range seems to be a bit narrower too. I believe you should leave TBC off as much as possible as long as your capture device likes the signal.
