This probably happens more often than we think. Frankly, it makes sense to validate that a card is going to run solid for someone before you send it to them if they're going to be blabbering all over the interwebs about it. It's just in this case they got burned (and justifiably) due to the fact that the software/driver adjusts the frequency independently instead of being a static clock speed (something they should have disclaimed to the reviewers).
Were the drawings found next to the surface where they made the sandwiches?
But why is this on Slashdot? This isn't a discussion on the engineering of the gas or the dispursement methods used, just a news article.
If that were true it would only take one day to reach a speed of 1.9 million miles/hour. Pretty sure that's not happening.
Can't wait to see the pit stop times for this thing. Do those stopwaches measure in hours?
Either I'm really good at tuning out the ads or you're just really bad at it. While my preferred gaming platform is PC, I still use my PS3 and 360 and don't feel they're overburdened with ads any more than Steam or the likes. If anything it seems worse on PC.
Hah! Nice troll. Got quite a few takers.
The Java exploit is much less surprising to me than how casually we include the fact that this guy (and others) are selling exploit kits online. I remember when stuff like this used to be so underground you had to "know someone who knew someone" to find it. Perhaps what he's selling isn't technically illegal, but it's still surprising to read.

Is he related to the singer?
Just think of the hands he can make now that he actually has hands.
The real question is, how will the autonomous vehicles deal with vehicle malfunction or scenarios that immediately affect road safety? What happens when the vehicle has a blow-out or hits a patch of ice? How will they account for all of these eventualities? I don't think it's even possible to program reactionary responses to all of those situations. Also, will the vehicles have to communicate with one another so they can accomodate a quick-braking situation from a vehicle in front or will it rely on reactionary detection like radar to gauge distance and braking? If it does it will drastically affect the density of cars that can travel safely due to the distance between them that will be required. Anyway, what I'm saying is I think the issue of how fast the vehicles can travel is by no means the "long pole in the tent" when it comes to making this happen.
What about personally identifiable information? Should SSN's be flying around unencrypted? Just because encryption is used to conceal wrongdoing doesn't mean it's always used for that purpose.
This is not a trivial sum. Who gets it?
