it's a real shame that the voyager doesn't include a mandelbrot set.
They were going to include one, but they were unable to complete it by the launch date.
They were drawing such a lovely Obama apology when he ordered that drone strike.
So you're saying that old people like Snowden and Millenials hate his guts?
Your summary dismissal of facts based on the source not being politically correct enough shows that you are very enlightened and tolerant.
During WWII, did your grandpappie tell his bosses to not trust that E=mc^2 crap because the guy who thought it up wasn't an Aryan pure blood?
It's also $40 cheaper, which translates into a savings of > 25% of the device price.
You want Ubuntu on the "non-crippled" version? Good news: If you are willing to pay the additional $40, you ought to be able to install Ubuntu because the same hardware (minus some RAM/storage) has already been setup to run Ubuntu.
For the last 24 years: LINUX ISN'T STUPID BLOATWARE! IT RUNS GREAT ON ANY HARDWARE!!!
Hardware maker in 2015: OK, you're right. Here ya go.
Fanboys: OMG!! CRIPPLED HARDWARE!!
Meh.. this meme has been copy & pasted onto Slashdot over & over again since the 90s.
1. I can tell you exactly how much Intel chips will cost if AMD is noncompetitive or goes away entirely... they'll cost exactly what they cost now because AMD is already effectively out of the game.
People forget that Intel is not only in heavy competition with ARM, but Intel is in perpetual competition with its own parts from last year and if Intel really jacks up prices they will simply lose business from people who don't upgrade.
2. You have a very selective memory when it comes to history. In the brief periods of time when AMD really had some form of a performance lead over the Pentium 4, their chip prices were as high or even higher than what Intel charges for its extreme premium parts now. FX-62 for over $1000... I'm looking at you.
AMD isn't some angel, it just doesn't have the opportunity to be the big dog very often. Additionally, even when AMD isn't the top dog they've charged whackjob insane prices for chips... $900 FX-9590 launched in 2013 as some sort of bad-joke, I'm looking at you.
