I just got an Acer Aspire V15 Nitro and one of the things I like about it, is that it runs quite cool even after compiling software for half an hour. Then again, that doesn't require the NVIDIA card to do anything, and I don't know how that would affect the temperature. As I just got it, my experience with it is limited, but I like it so far. It's a very fast machine.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
This article is basically saying that research and innovation are bad. That's fucked up if you ask me.
or as a byproduct of fission, that's the source of most Helium on Earth (alpha particles are Helium nuclei).
It's smart, but emotionally unstable.
Ditch Minecraft and make Minecraft 2. Better graphics! Faster! (Runs on windows only).
Instead of a spectrum analyzer, you can use an RTL-SDR dongle as described here. Sure it has a lot of limitations, but it only costs you 10$, and with the scanner software you can get a very wide bandwidth.
7.5 million dollars just went down the drain.
Of course! Quantum effects!
Every quack claims "quantum effects" for justifying their quackery these days. Nothing new. Me is not impressed.
So because they are large makes them evil?
No. That just makes them powerful. There are concerns that need to be addressed when benign institutions gain power. Like that bank, that used to take care of your money until they became too big to fail. Remember that one? It was funny. I still can't stop laughing while I fill in my taxes.
Of course it's not ok to kill and pillage all the time! Just a little bit once in a while.
I'm pretty sure killing, kidnapping and raping is forbidden regardless of religion.
And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?
I'm probably "not interpreting this correctly" or "taking it out of context" or whatever religious people say when confronted with their cognitive dissonance, but it seems the Bible is just fine with killing, kidnapping and raping.
And who would publish that study?
I've watched a great lecture about methane "observations" on Mars a while a go. It's really worthwhile if you want to get some background into the claims made. Needless to say, what you hear in the press is not to be trusted. Listen to the scientists themselves, they give a lot more subtle story than the headlines in a newspaper.
