Very like they are talking about the CPU using 33% percent less power, thus increasing how long it can run on given about of Wh by 50%.
It is not a straw man, and you basically agree with the parent post. Companies work to maximize profit, which means setting prices as high as possible as long as it doesn't hurt sales too much (maximize sales*price). This can lead to prices especially in the electronic business that has absolutely nothing to do with cost (most electronics are dirt cheap to make), but when what customers find reasonable is set by what the production cost is, the cost will generally have to follow production cost, or at least.. customer perceived production cost, which can be very different.
I read that as, the device will constantly be broadcasting everything going on in your living room to Microsofts new 300000 servers. Eventhough it may be powerfull enough to do the voice processing itself, I doubt they will pass a chance at an excuse for live-snooping every living room. Everybody seems to be getting away with it on the phones anyway.
Could be compatible with games for the xbox 1... I mean original xbox... Ugh. This is going to be a problem isn't it?
That depends on the virus. Some virus like the common flu can take many different shapes and therefore be uncognized by your vaccine trained immune system, but most virus does not change that much, and will continue to be recognizable by the immune system even after several mutations.
Where the FCC screwed up was that the way LTE frequency was allocated let to greater fragmentation, when it should have been an opportunity to improve compatibly and thus competition.
You say that as if it wasn't the intention of FCC. I think that is what the parent poster was talking about, the FCC isn't doing its job in minimizing fragmentation.
Hi, you look stupid, would you mind if I zap your brain?
It will make you smarter! promise.
I don't feel any smarter...
Would you let me zap you again?
See! You are smarter already
Nope, my browser has no tabs when there is only one webpage showing. So no, I have zero tabs. If I force the browser to open a page in a new tab, I would have two, but currently I have exactly zero, because tabs are silly space wasting things when you don't need them.
"Oh god, the NTFS code is a purple opium-fueled Victorian horror novel [...]" -- lol!
Wouldn't that make it on par with XFS and ZFS? Modern filesystems have their advanced features by breaking the traditional layers, which makes them much harder to organize, and makes it seems like they have dirty tentacles branching out into everything else.
Once things get posthumorous, they are not funny anymore.
Weren't the veterans the ones who liberated you from the nazis?
No, it was the Americans and British.
Of course they did. Cisco sells overpriced crap, when they bought Linksys the cheap Linksys products were often better than 10x more expensive Cisco products. The prediction everybody made after the purchase was that Cisco had to intentionally make Linksys more crap, and they did.
Not really. The most popular Linux distribution, called Android, uses Java as their userland. Not GNU.
And what userland does Android java run in, and what has it been developed in? I doubt it is written in assembler with raw system calls.
use the current beta driver. supports Optimus.
Not in any useful way. Since you can't switch a screen from Intel GPU to NVidia, you can only use the optimus driver on screens that boot on nvidia, which is no screens. In other words the new optimus driver supports rendering onto imaginary screens but not real screens.
Well, I expect to be able to SSH into machines, to be able to tunnel through SSH, to have GPG encryption/decryption. That's kind of the minimum, and since few (no?) systems have built-in support for this apps are quite critical to me.
The Nokia N9 had built-in terminal and SSH, though I think you had to activate developer mode before the icons showed up on the home page.
