AM would be better but can it be done on a chip?
Won't matter much if the links are cut. A radio station could at least install a temporary antenna if it doesn't have one on its roof.
"The core2 was introduced in 2006. - Almost a decade ago and core2 based computers are still quite damn fast today."
Agreed. My hands-me down i3-2100 is faster than the 3.2 C2D it replaced, yes, but I didn't fall off my chair. Anything more recent than a P4 will be usable for everyday tasks for most people.
As for AMD going down, I really don't want to go back to paying a thousand dollars for a CPU...
And YOU just made my day
"If the media companies had any say in the matter, buying a CD to rip the songs to MP3 to play on your portable device would be illegal."
The only reason it isn't is because it doesn't have any encryption to break like DVD/Bluray discs.
We got an update on AMD's 2016 processor plans and the new APU with up to 16 Zen x86 cores and integrated Greenland HMB graphics is something that you may find interesting.
The new APU is expected to launch sometime in 2016, replacing the Godaveri platform that we all got to know as the Carrizo APU. Carrizo notebook APUs should launch at Computex, or early June 2015. The new Zen-core powered APU doesn't have a solid codename just yet, at least not the one that our sources are comfortable revealing.
The new APU platform has everything AMD fans could wish for — four channel DDR4 support, PCIe3, up to 16 Zen cores and Greenland GPU, paired with High Bandwidth Memory (HBM). The ability to add up to 16 Zen CPU cores suggests that AMD plans to use this chip for the compute market too, as the marriage of 16 Zen processors and HBM powered Greenland graphics can probably score some amazing compute performance numbers.
Yes, we think such an architecture is a perfect match for the Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA). In case you are not familiar with this term, HSA is a type of computer processor architecture that integrates CPU and GPU on the same bus, with shared memory and tasks.

Seriously, as others mentioned, one home, one offsite in a bank security box. a portable external HDD will fit in the smallest ones for big backups, or a USB thumb drive/sd card..
Just RAID 75 of them (and get a really big pigeon)
Even if He was naturalized two years before the bombings, he should lose that privilege. How much will it cost to keep him on death row?
Better yet, leave him in a locked room with the victim's families for a couple of hours.
If the device becomes online without you consent in the future, it means it's not in your hands anymore. Thus *any* device will be vulnerable to prying eyes.
Chevy's Volt can recharge its batteries too. In fact, most of the times the ICE acts as a generator, and under certain circumstances (High output needed while charging for example) it can be physically linked to the drivetrain,
I wouldn't be so sure, Apple has proven many times they can switch OS and Architectures in a pretty seamless way.
Apple ][->68K via expansion card or emulation, 68K->PPC via Classic or Fat Binaries, OS9->OSX via emulation and PPC->x86 via Rosetta or Universal Binaries.
In latest OSX versions, the scroll bars act the same as on iDevices, and since iOS is based on OSX, It wouldn't be too hard for them to switch OS and/or architectures again (or emulate iOS apps on OSX).
Time will tell I guess...
I wouldn't be so sure. It wouldn't be the first time MS failed with a product line. Zune, Windows CE PDAs, Windows Phone, Tablet PCs...
iOS and Android devices are here to stay. Most people using tablets don't need X86 compatibility on a portable device (that's what laptops are for). Tablets are used to consume content and view documents and the current crop is perfectly capable of doing so.
