How has being an activist for so many years surprised you? What have you seen that you never expected?
Actually, an i7 processor has an energy density that blow a nuclear reactor away. The nuke reactor only wins because it's huge.
I'm bully on ARM, with the (almost) collapse of AMD as a "first rate" processor, it's good to see Intel get some serious competition in a significant market space.
My only beef with ARM is that comparing CPUs is harder than comparing video cards! the ARM space is so fragmented with licensed cores and seemly random numbers indicating the "version" that I have no idea how, for example, a SnapDragon 808 processor compares to a Cortex A9 or an Apple A7.
Really, I'm lost. But the $40 TV stick with the 4x core A9 works pretty well...
LA has a freeze cycle. It could even be hours of freezing temperatures in some areas, sometimes....
I am amaze.
I had Windows Vista up on a (then rather beefy) 3-core 64B Athlon with 3 GB of RAM. IT WAS A DOG. Figure several minutes until it was responsive on boot, etc. Double-click a program and wait for the icon to blink, etc.
Upgrading the machine to Windows 7 without changing *anything* and it was like a new computer! It booted much faster, programs launched quickly enough that the coffee maker started to feel abandoned.
And it was *always* that slow, it wasn't due to malware.
You can blame the people as much as you like, but failing to consider the power of the media (aka Faux News, CNN, etc) is folly.
I wonder how much of that "ignoramus effect" is due to people actively being spoon fed garbage information?
Watching commentary on any news network is a veritable "here's how" for logical fallacies.
As already said: I've never felt like I wanted to be locked into the (much smaller) Amazon ecosystem.
I'll be honest: I've never felt like I wanted to be locked into the (much smaller) Amazon ecosystem.
$50k doesn't even cover the cost of MS TV advertisements for a single day. This is roughly the cost of 1/2 to 1/3 of their typical developer salary for a year.
This isn't significant; this is laundry lint.
Chromecast all but requires another smart device running (continuously) to control it. You can't control it directly.
Google TV, on the other hand, AKA "Android TV Sticks", are a full-on Android device, just like your phone or tablet, but without the screen. You control it with something like a mouse/keyboard.
You can turn off your phone/laptop while using a Google TV. You can browse the Internet on your Google TV, without using anything else to help. You can plug in a keyboard/mouse and use it like a computer! You buy apps on it from Google play, just like any other android device, and it's very compatible!
I just loved my first TV stick that I bought on Amazon (MK808b) for $35! I just bought an MK809 when my MK808b finally died after 3 or 4 years of daily use, and it has (so far) been a nice upgrade. Faster processor, better wifi reception, more memory/storage. Still runs just fine off the power from the USB port on the side of my TV...
PS: To control one of these, you want a "flying mouse remote". It's a keyboard that "mouses" by waving it in the air.
We've been using Samsung drives in "non production" status servers, embedded servers, etc. and have had a terrible time of it. The first drives we bought a few years ago (840 Pro) were good, but we've seen Samsung SSDs run entirely through their write capacity (as reported by SMART) and then go dead when not even mounted! Turns out we aren't the only ones to get bit by buggy Samsung drives.
It also turns out that Samsung drives are even blacklisted in the Linux Kernel
I welcome Samsung's excellent cost/size value proposition! I just wish their drives were solid enough for our actual use.
My current laptop, a Dell Precision M3800 has it all: light weight, powerful, reasonable (if not fantastic) battery life, 4K screen, and native support for Linux, out of the box but it's hard to figure out what something the same size would be like at 1/4 the weight.
But I'm agreeing with other comments: I'd rather have this exact weight laptop with 3 days of battery life.
A few years back, I bought the phone with the very best battery life and I don't regret it one minute. Now on its third year, the phone still easily powers through a day with 50% or so battery life, and never leaves me high and dry when flying commercially which is when battery life is most important.
My next phone will be the phone with the best battery life Now that I finally have a powerful laptop that isn't also dreadfully heavy, battery life will once again be #1 for my next purchase.
I for one won't be back until
You do realize that the people who frequent that sub would still be on reddit right? They'd just congregate other places, like maybe the default subs.
What's sad is that UOP really could have done it! If they offered actual counseling guidance, and curricula that didn't just suck, and made sure that their clients passed classes with rigor, they could have *easily* made a profitable college with good reviews and earned trust.
Instead, they violated that trust, and probably deserve to be shut down.
Apology accepted. My daughter will be educated in the ways of life. My point is that it is up to me to decide when my daughter learns these things. That is not a decision left to idiots in the general public.
In other words, I'm not depending on the village to raise my child. If any of the village idiots try, they will find themselves dependent on the village to take care of them.
I'm her parent. Not that asshole.
