Personally, I'd rather die then spend a few years in solitary at ADX Florence. It's basically non-physical torture and you can expect to be insane at the end of it.

These cards are advertised and sold as having 4gb of DDR5, but actually only have 3.5gb and then 0.5gb of slower stuff.
I don't think so. The only difference between a 970 and a 980 is that nVidia gimps the 970's GPU by 2 SMMs, which is 1/8 less than a 980. Strangely, 3.5GB is also 1/8 less than 4GB.
I don't see crop factor mentioned anywhere in the title, interesting stuff about sensor noise though.
Notice how the 5dMKII pics are zoomed out? That is because it is a full size sensor. Due to sensor crop, the image produced by the other two cameras gets zoomed in by a factor of 1.6 or so. Naturally, you can see more detail if it is zoomed in. Also, the reviewer is talking about having issues with camera shake while on a tripod, has he not ever heard of a remote shutter release?
It is interesting to wonder how much process size vs. pixel density effects sensor noise, and Samsung certainly has some nice fab facilities.
Still this reviewer seems like an idiot or a paid shill. I’ll wait for something from DPReview.
Trouble is, RS buys the phones at retail cost and loses money on every unit.
That's simply not true. Mobile phones have accounted for half or more of Radio Shack revenues since they started selling them years ago, and are basically what's kept Radio Shack afloat for so long.
So, Bitcoin wil be subject to volatility, like every other currency and precious metal in history, and that will cause troubles for the people who actually extract the stuff. Who (aside from anyone in the mining business) knew?
The problem with bitcoin is its volatility relative to other currencies. Combine purely speculative/thinly traded exchanges with a lack of an underlying economy of any note, and that's what you get.
Seems like a firefox extention would be a good way to solve this.
The US sees only a small fraction of this issue (see also the town of Dearborn, MI) by comparison.
The US sees quite a bit of this issue, just not with Muslims.
"When I woke up the next morning, I had four emails from Amazon AWS and a missed phone call from Amazon AWS. Something about 140 servers running on my AWS account. What? How? I only had S3 keys on my GitHub and they where gone within 5 minutes! Turns out through the S3 API you can actually spin up EC2 instances, and my key had been spotted by a bot that continually searches GitHub for API keys. Amazon AWS customer support informed me this happens a lot recently; hackers have created an algorithm that searches GitHub 24 hours per day for API keys. Once it finds one it spins up max instances of EC2 servers to farm itself bitcoins."
Tim Hunken's The Secret Life of Machine's series did a great job of illustrating the history of refrigeration, from the ancient Roman times to a detailed look at how modern refrigerators work:
$34M is puny even by Texas standards. Here in N.Y. that can't even buy an election.
I've got news for you, sonny...*New York* is puny by our standards. Yee Haw!!! [gunshots]
