"Clock speed is pretty much everything."

Clock speed is useless as a benchmark. Eventually, it's all down to how many instructions per cycle get carried out. Your pussy 5.0 GHz 2 instructions per clock cycle (making for 10 billion instructions per second) pales in comparison to my 2.5 GHz 8 instructions per cycle (20 billion instructions per second.)

See how quickly your clock speed arms race got destroyed?

This is why real performance is measured in IPS or FLOPS, not clock speed.

Go check out the grow lights section on Wikipedia. It's so much repeated and poorly-sourced advertising-as-fact that almost all of that information is WRONG.

And this is why I will never help/donate/edit Wikipedia. There's no way to stop the controlling interests. All information on Wikipedia should therefore be assumed false.

"We spent several months trying to extract information from the researchers who were going to give the Black Hat talk, and eventually we did get some hints from them about how "relay early" cells could be used for traffic confirmation attacks, which is how we started looking for the attacks in the wild. They haven't answered our emails lately, so we don't know for sure, but it seems likely that the answer to Q1 is "yes"."

Fucking slashdot, can't even be bothered to RTFA to check the headline. It's only suspected, not proven, that black hat researchers did this.

"without some kind of protection cage this seems kind of a bad idea"

Good thing you're not en engineer and design person, then.

Guess what typically surround metal heat sinks?

Protection cages, like computer cases, amplifier cases, etc.

What're you even doing on here if you can't think of something like that?

Apparently you're not smart enough to keep anything and everything on your home system.

Go ahead and keep proving linux zealots wrong with your conviction.

I could knock your poor security on its ass.

PROTIP: Since the early 90s, Backtrack was built upon my exploits.

You owe me, same way Sony owes me for revealing their own problems.

Bow down and STFU knave.

"As an American with an above average grasp of the US legal system thanks to a long time friend who is an attorney, I can tell you that anything can happen if this case goes to court. Should the AARC lose? Yes. But will they? Who knows? Juries aren't made up of people who understand technology."

So much for your knowledge. You do know that the car companies could ask for this to go in front of a judge instead of a jury, right? And that all it's going to take is a note of RIAA v Diamond and also a mentioning from Chapter 92 of Copyright code to end this case as it's already been decided by higher courts than the one the case is going to.

Coming from someone that spends a LOT of time in court dealing with this kind of nonsense as an expert witness.

Happiness is a positive cash flow.
