The story is Apple. Something to do with Apple. Something to do with how this decision by Apple is simply amazing and could not have been arrived at by any other company under any circumstance.
Yes, apparently it is too much to ask that people be correct these days.
The summary clearly states that 512GB of memory is 1000 times more than 512MB of memory, which is patently false. If you're making comparisons, you don't make absolute statements like this. You use qualifying words like "about 1000 times" or "approximately 1000 times" to let the reader know you do not mean to be precise.
The OP is correct. Memory is always expressed in GiB. There is no such thing as Base-10 memory.
Why the hell are we talking about the Fahrenheit scale. And, while we're at it, memory of all kinds is always expressed in GiB, so a 512GB card is 1024 times as large as a 512MB card, not 1000 times.
It looks like a standard -25 to 85C extended commercial rating.
Well, it didn't help that the guy who filed that petition didn't bother to read the HIPAA laws, nor understand that HIPAA laws do not apply to ham radio operators. He was seeking a solution to a made-up problem.
Android is not free. Googls pays Microsoft a small fortune in patent licensing to be able to sell Android.
Lighten up, Francis. This is Slashdot. Nobody expects good journalism or even semi-accurate plagiarism here.
So, you believe it is okay for the government to confiscate your property, without being able to articulate a _reasonable_ suspicion of criminal activity, without charging you with a crime, and without convicting you of a crime?
I checked Netcraft, and they did NOT confirm it...
Since neither the submitter nor the editors couldn't be bothered to provide a link to the app in the play store (let's face it, that would be too useful), here it is:
"Colleagues who decry Barr's fate worry that the incident could make other scientists think twice about coming to work for NSF"
No, her fate will make other scientists think twice about getting involved with terrorist organizations and then lying about it on their background check applications.
Our area just picked up a few Proterra electric buses for use in the Catbus system, which serves Clemson University and the surrounding areas. There were some huge federal grants involved, and they have been riddled with problems, but have finally started running and carrying passengers. We're mostly a rural area and the bus system is free for all to use - paid for by Clemson University student fees and some taxpayer money from surrounding municipalities (Cities of Clemson, Seneca, Pendleton, and Central, afaik).
The buses are neat. They use overhead inductive chargers that are located at various places around town. I haven't ridden one yet (I prefer to get around by bicycle), but I hear they're pretty nice.
I am sure the impact on air quality is almost unmeasurable in our vast expanse of rural countryside, but in cities the impact could be huge.
