If you really needed smooth animation and graphics, Apple would tell you that was important and then you would have it. In the meantime, this is clearly not important. Remember it's much more important to be stylish and cool than effective and efficient.
and give myself a million miles, does that mean United will give a second million? Or just let me keep mine? So what do I need them for?
"To put it simple, this is a language with a built-in code analyzer and it's a pretty tough one: it can catch all the bugs typical of C++ and dealing not only with memory management, but multithreading as well. Pass a reference to an assignable object through a pipe to another thread and then try to use this reference yourself - the program just will refuse to compile. "
Why do we need another language to accomplish those things? Better IDEs, compilers and analyzer tools should be able to all that for existing languages. If you have a better paradigm for expressing algorithms that you think merits a new language, make that case, but complaints in the quote don't need that.
I don't know what else they are wrong about but in the paper it says: "For example, the Intel Core i7-3720QM processor, which belongs
to the Haswell family, includes 8192 = 213 cache sets, each of which can hold 12 lines of 64 = 26 bytes each, giving a total cache size of 8192x12x64=6MB".
No, an i7-3xxx anything is in the Ivy Bridge not Haswell family but those cache characteristics would be correct for the Ivy Bridge i7-3720QM.
But if it was a Haswell it would be an i7-4xxx processor. So either they meant a last generation IVB processor or a different Haswell than they called out, but what they said is wrong.
Anyone see any other mistakes?
Even if NASA and ESAB had a "miscommunication" (I suspect an unresolved contract issue, which both sides thought the other has accepted responsibility for owning the floor contracting), what should have happened is that the ESAB equipment people, before starting work on the installation should have inspected the floor work they mandated to make sure it was done correctly. If this happened at all, you'd assume someone who notice that the floor has not been recently rebuilt AT ALL and would stop work until that got done. If you say your equipment needs some part of the environment to be a certain way before you can install, presumably you don't do it until it meets spec. So, no matter who else is to blame, ESAB is negligent in proceeding with work if the floor had not been brought in line with requirements.
An alternate, plausible chain of events is that NASA originally, disagreed with ESAB and felt the floor fix was unnecessary in the first place and told them if they wanted to do it, NASA was not going to pay for that. ESAB does a risk assessment, decides there's a danger but it likely will work and goes ahead. Install fails and during resolution, NASA makes under-the-table concessions to make ESAB whole financially if they admit it's their screw-up. This perfectly reflects the difference between govt and corporate fears. NASA fears looking stupid and is probably willing to pay money to avoid that. ESAB is more worried about losing money and can always subtly imply privately to other future customers that it was NASA that screwed up.
... before they crank out the 180 petaflop score on Linpack (which officially would put them at the top of the Top 500 Supercomputer list), they're going to mine all the remaining Bitcoins.
No the current generation Surface Pro 3 is still a Core i5 - current generation. This is Surface non-Pro that is an Atom x7
A4WP and PMA have merged to form Rezence, which should become the prevailing standard as it's better technology than Qi. So it's really too bad that Ikea is supporting WPC - which will probably not emerge as the winning standard. Ikea can always make next year's furniture with Rezence, but it's not clear first gen customers that got Qi would be able to upgrade. Also the article is misleading in that it suggests Samsung is completely in the WPC camp when they are also involved with and helped found A4WP (Rezence) and believe it's the future.

And push our Apple or Samsung or Qualcomm for the right price. Again, AMD and NVidia can't or won't pay what that price would be.
... is that all the the commentary on the FCC vote seems to define net neutrality as not interfering with "web sites" from other parties (good, but... ) however, this is opening up a potential loophole where traffic to and from apps could be limited because they are not "web sites". We can only hope this is result of FCC trying to make their intentions more understandable to the public and that the actual proposal will be what it should be:
ISPs should not be able to prioritize/ deprioritize IP traffic to or from the ISP client hosts with other internet hosts not affiliated with the ISP
This covers web site, app, OS, device and any other traffic. There probably should be an exception for traffic the client customer EXPRESSLY requests to be prioritized eg. VoIP or VPN to a particular hosts. Note that this all about the relationship with the consuming end-point, last-mile, customer. It should not impose any restriction on commercial connection, peering or other upstream contractual arrangements.
I assume the group involved is at least paying Sony a wholesale price for those DVDs. (Which I didn't think had been released yet enyway)
Surely they wouldn't engage in piracy.
Rick, what percentage of the time do you use the SP2 as a slate vs with keyboard? If's with a keyboard most of the time, you're using a lightweight PC not a tablet.
... that administrative changes at this level should only be allowable from physical access to closed admin networks and the value of having staff be able to make changes in their PJs from some hotel room is overrated?
