the Nyquist limit of the audio sampling hardware of a cell phone over instruction rate of a modern CPU is a pretty small fraction.
The "audio" in question is most likely all below 24 kHz, that being the Nyquist limit for the 48 kHz sampling hardware, unless it happens that some phones can actually sample faster, and have microphones that can respond to higher frequencies.
The instruction rate of the CPUs in question is many times that frequency.
It doesn't sound likely.
Using multiple cores turns out to help the attack (by shifting down the signal frequencies).
Say what? Through what mechanism would multiple cores shift down the frequency? And what about parallel instruction streams contributing to noise?
TEMPEST was a details-secret government requirement meant to defeat means of eavesdropping on classified computer data from its electromagnetic emissions. I guess they need to include audio too.
My impression is that the noise comes from the power supply, not the CPU. I can certainly hear it with some computers, and it is related to work on the video card in my experience. I'm astonished that you can actually pull data from that, and in fact I'd like to see independent confirmation before I believe it.
Unlike the previous failure with no shuttle it will never make it back to determine what the issue really is and they'll just toss it into the atmosphere.
Another five million man-years of labor gets thrown overboard and the Apple developers start again.
No wonder programmers prefer Linux. (And no wonder all apps suck) At least there they can write programs that do something useful instead of untangling a new, buggy graphics API every 18 months.
Writing code for proprietary platforms is like being a structural engineer in a world where the laws of physics and geometry change on a regular basis. It makes no economic sense to build anything larger than a grass hut.
Nobody can build a $38 tablet sustainably.
Someone paid for that tablet at its real price. It just wasn't you.
When America stops being obsessed with being chickenshits, perhaps it will be easier to find a job.
Make it impossible to start a software business. Makes perfect sense!
Wait, there are no software businesses in America any more. Never mind.
See the Seventh Amendment to the Constitution for why the Supreme Court is wrong.
I didn't take it as just an alternative suggestion, I took the comment "not just a fill in the blank coding exercise" as a denigration of the effort many people were putting into this. Its easy to make suggestions from the sidelines.
You were doing just fine until "ergo." After that a massive sky-darkening Google-brand cock entered your mouth at Mach Six.
