Comment: What's stopping Netflix (Score 1) 289

From doing some kind of opt-in peering arrangement, where movies were cached locally for a while after being watched on some devices with the storage capability to do so? While they're cached, they can help stream to peers on the same network along with Netflix's servers, in some type of arrangement similar to bittorrent. That way ISPs could degrade Netflix however they wanted but end user performance would still be acceptable in some cases.

In 2016, Nokia can re-enter the cell phone market under its own name. This may mean them going back into designing their own phones, or purchasing Jolla, the spin-off company run by former Nokia engineers. Jolla has already put a very nice looking low-end cell phone on the market, and I expect them to continue to build out their smart phone portfolio in the near future. I can definitely see them once again becoming a part of Nokia in 2016. I don't think Nokia would be content to remain a patent-only business. Also, keep in mind, they are retaining their very lucrative mapping business as well.

Keep in mind the Apple screens are smaller than all of the devices with supposed HD screens, and thus still have very competitive pixel densities. This is especially true when you look into the fact that pentile displays used on many devices do not accurately represent their supposed pixel densities with their RGBG subpixel scheme.

Okay, so now we know that the drivers themselves are faster at rendering OpenGL content, but are they accurate? I know that, in the past, both AMD and nVidia have resorted to not quite properly rendering things to get their cards to perform better in benchmarks, does anyone know if any of that is going on here?

We are turning into a nanny state, and we need to put a stop to it. There are no reasonable arguments for spying on people with 30,000 drones.

To combat such measures against American citizens, we need to start developing plans to take these things out of the sky. Perhaps we can do this by interfering with their radios, causing them to crash, shooting rockets at them, shooting at them with conventional firearms (while wearing a mask of course), or chasing them down with other drones and ramming into them. We need to be able to easily, cheaply, and effectively stop them. Of course, and I think it goes without saying, I'm NOT advocating that people actually do any of these things, but we still need to discover the best way to do it before it's too late.

No, most motorsports do not use an automatic transmission. Many race cars do use newer automatically shifted manual transmissions such as: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dual-clutch_transmission

The only "motorsport" I can think of which favors automatic transmissions is drag racing, and those are specially built units. Slushboxes are no good for really any other type of racing.
