I imagine they are still shocked, electrified even, by this result.
Intel and AMD followed, not led. MIPS, SPARC and ALPHA all preceded them to fully 64-bit chips. And the Sun MAJC chip was the first dual core chip on the market.
You're looking for "antebellum", which is used to differentiate the American South in the pre-Civil War period from that of later times. It is a homophone of "anti-bellum" but has an entirely different meaning.
By citing Jolliffe as an authority, then, you are accepting his position that much more evidence than the hockey stick supports the idea that the climate is changing?
...And they are massively vulnerable to SPARC in those markets now. They will need to focus and up their game just to stay competitive. Wait and see what happens in the next few years in the markets Power competes in.
There are 8.5TB uncompressed capacity tapes in enterprise use right now. The 6TB compressed sounds like, oh, two generations back or so.
Because there can't be both natural and man-made causes for warming and cooling? Really? That seems arbitrary, especially if it's just the argument from disbelief.
We've got very good evidence that there are climate cycles, and very good evidence that we should be cooling right now, but we're not. We have very good evidence that we're warming specifically because of our own actions, and that's overwhelming the natural cycles, both in speed of change and intensity.
If you are comfortable with natural cycles, then the physics of artificial change should not faze you, because the physics behind them is the same. If something can be changed by natural forces, then it can be affected by artificial ones of sufficient scale and intensity. Excluding the latter is simply ignoring evidence.
It's interesting that the number of people who use it on larger screens (where finger swipes and oily debris are more obvious) matches the percentage prevalence of OCD in the US. About 1%. It would be interesting to know whether people do that to help keep the screen easy to clean and thus clear of irritating smudges and the like.
