If you think the telcos aren't going to suck at the federal teat for all they're worth, it's you that's a fucking retard.
With the demise of tvtorrents.com, I got tired of trying to find TV episodes online and went back to IPTV with a PVR. Sure there are other sites where I could have gotten the content, but tvtorrents.com had made it easy to follow a show instead of searching through a bunch of bogus torrents that you have to actually watch to know if you got a legit episode or not.
The torrent sites are too full of fake crap nowadays to be worth the hassle. Well, maybe "fake" is too strong a word: shittily transcoded might be better.
The first I heard of memristors was in the mid '80s. I don't recall if it was HP or someone else ballyhooing them, though.
You didn't think the government was going to give up their addiction to surveillance crack that easily, did you?
It has been a very long time since I bought a "latest and greatest" chip when building a new computer, because 2-3 revisions old still has many times the performance of the machine it's replacing and far more "snort" than I could ever use on day-to-day activities.
With any luck, this announcement and release will bring the price down on the chips I want by another $100 or so by January-February, when I hope to actually be building a new machine.
The bleeding edge is fine for gamers and hard-core video encoders and number crunchers, but for the rest of us folks, it is just an insane waste of money to buy the "latest and greatest." It's been a lot of years since anyone needed to do that for anything even vaguely resembling sane home or business use.
He enabled the selling of poison. Plain and simple: he encouraged killing people with untested and unproven chemicals and with the outright availability of actual hitmen.
He should fry for that.
Not really. They're manufacturing their devices; all HP ever seems to have done is talk.
Actually, if NAND memory become fast enough, that could replace RAM in future smart phones. It would be like having the concept of Core Memory all over again. And what, NAND storage holds data 6 to 12 months powered off? So still volatile compared with flash or magnetic storage.
I don't think there's a single Core i7 that will support more than 32GB RAM. I believe that's hard-coded to the die, and not motherboard. If you need to address more than that, you're looking at a Xeon chip from the Intel offerings.
What version? My iPhone 5 never had Verizon branded software installed at the firmware level. Aside from it saying "Verizon" in the upper left corner, there's nothing Verizon installed on it.
Speaking of OS updates, the iPhone 5 will most get iOS 9 this Fall.
Frequency speeds have been pretty stagnate due to the laws of physics. Asynchronous clocking is one way of dealing with signal propagation and timings as I understand. But the focus these years has been on adding features as the die shrinks further. Not many programs take advantage of multi-threaded operations, hence why the home and office market doesn't see much in the way of increase core count. For raw multitasking, it's my understanding that the Xeon line sacrifices multi-media features for extra cores and cache. Die space is limited as such gets allocated to whatever that market it's optimized for; in that case server and workstation.
The man was a smart-ass who thumbed his nose at the law and figured he was so smart he could never get caught. Like any drug dealer or mafia-hitman renter, he deserves and got life. But he got off easy -- that should have been "hard labour".
So why is AMD constantly on the verge of bankruptcy?
Typically when you're at that level, management is usually the problem. Technically, AMD can take market share. Marketing-wise, they're not. R&D isn't the problem.
