Ever heard of SiGE and MPW/COT? Who needs FPGA when you can go open source ASIC and produce an initial production run for under $50k, possibly even $10k? There's been some interesting research from places like CalTech and Berkley in to fully designed MIMO's even with integrated antennas in an SOIC that are in many cases nearly a decade old now.

Look, if we had to spell out every bit of "evidence" we have concerning how we KNOW NK was involved, we'd have a thousand denialists like you hyper-analyzing every letter and word screaming NO EVIDENCE when we have clearly outlined that we know NK did it. Dude just trust us, we've got this.

I've had the i7 512 Surface Pro 3 for several months now and I absolutely love it. I was worried about the hinge but it's lapability has no issues IMHO. The only problem I have is it simply doesn't work if I'm lying down in bed.

It's doubtful the LG will contend. I think the biggest threat is the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro but at close to a pound heavier and inability to detach the keyboard increasing the thickness in tablet mode, I'll stick with my Surface Pro 3 thank you very much.

I think you misunderstand my statement. I spend the most TIME writing in js/coffee (angular.js in particular). RoR is still the backend, but it's serving more as a thin API layer to backend data services. I also probably spend less time writing Ruby code because of better engineering which can be attributed to the language's elegance.
