QuakeCon's Bring Your Own Computer area can reach 2500+. 170 is nothing.
Still trying to say you're not a taxi service at this point is getting pretty ridiculous.
io9 is a Gawker blog. You shouldn't even have to click through to the site to know it's going to be shit.

Coming from Texas, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH,
That's a pretty broad exclusion to be enforceable.
Maybe he shoulda talked to the people he bought the house from instead of level 1 sales drone. Hell, even looking at the house he should have seen if there was coax in place or not.
That's their entire point.
THATS THE ENTIRE POINT OF THIS PAPER.
It is easy to explain the results: In high-level languages such as Java and Python, a seemingly benign
statement such as concatString += addString may actually involve executing many extra cycles behind
the scenes. To concatenate two strings in a language such as C, if there is not enough space to expand
the concatString to the size it needs to be to hold the additional bytes from addString, then the
developer has to explicitly allocate new space with enough storage for the sum of the sizes of the two
strings and copy concatString to the new location, and then finally perform the concatenation. In Java
and Python strings are immutable, and any assignment will result in the creation of a new object and
possibly copy operations, hence the overhead of the string operations. The disk-only code, although
apparently writing to the disk excessively, is only triggering an actual write when operating system
buffers are full. In other words, the operating system already lessons disk access times. A developer
familiar with the language and system internals readily notices the causes of this observed behaviour,
but this behaviour may be easily missed, as indicated by examining similar cases in production code.

If it's that critical, it's not going to come from amazon. You'll have a service provider on call.
There's some beefy laptops out there, but if you're doing data analysis and simulations you're going to have to be plugged in 24/7. At that point you lose the main benefit of a laptop while still losing in the performance department.
Get a desktop.

Until it doesn't because the drivers are gaming the surge pricing algorithm.
Steve Gibson is still relevant?

Root your phone and install one of the many granular permission managers.
Of course Google couldn't be reached, have you ever tried getting support for anything?
Ok, that makes more sense. That dual symmetric-asymmetric was missing from one of the writeups.
