Kohenkatz writes "Intel has agreed to pay $1.25 billion to AMD. In return, AMD will drop its lawsuits about patent and antitrust complaints. The two companies released this joint statement: 'While the relationship between the two companies has been difficult in the past, this agreement ends the legal disputes and enables the companies to focus all of our efforts on product innovation and development.' The press release also says, 'Under terms of the agreement, AMD and Intel obtain patent rights from a new 5-year cross license agreement,' and that 'Intel and AMD will give up any claims of breach from the previous license agreement.'"
90% of nuclear bomb material that's been converted comes from Russian bombs. Read PAST the first sentence.
The power from old Russian nukes we use today does not offset the loss of energy we still suffer from as a result of the Cold War-era tapping of our precious bodily fluids!
Oh, no! No if my uncle gets in a car accident, I get my rates upped by my insurance. Thanks a lot, UC Irvine!
It's a bad practice, but encyclopedias and dictionaries have been doing for years. See Lillian Virginia Mountweasel, the fountain designer/photographer who overcame non-existence to be featured in the 1975 New Columbia Encyclopedia as an anti-piracy measure.
This is an attempt by sociologists to build up their status by sabotaging the real sciences. Seriously, if a country doesn't value a sector monetarily, it will suffer. The United States has long underpaid its academics and is now reaping the rewards, or lack thereof.
NASA designed one of those, too. It was called Orion; it never got built. It might be interesting if the Russians actually DO something with this design.
I recently had the opportunity to speak to the vice-president of a major academic institution. He told me that, in his opinion, paper in general was on the way out. I hope not. Paper content, despite its faults, can be trusted not to disappear with the flick of a digital switch. It is relatively durable, lasting for hundreds of years. And it is accessible; if it's on paper, you don't have to unencrypt it or have the right software or hardware to access it. If print newspapers die, it will be a disservice not only to us in the present, but for our descendants who might wish to study the way we were.
Not offtopic! The safety of voting machines from viruses has everything to do with virus suffrage.
Someday soon, viruses will become intelligent enough to have their own voter suffrage movement. This is how modern democracy will end.
Do they call it 'three strikes' in Britain? They don't play baseball, and cricket has different rules in this respect.
This Halloween, I'm going trick-or-treating dressed as CowboyNeal.
We're starting to see the benefits of global warming. Warmer winters, better trade routes, less polar bears to eat our children; things can only get better the warmer it gets!
