I mean, you look at Apple's massive data centers and there are like 4 cars in the parking lot.
they found out throwing flowers at a sabre tooth tiger does nothing but piss it off. Ah humans, we evolve out of epic failure.
Straight from the website:
"Our latest superconducting 512-qubit processor chip is housed inside a cryogenics system within a 10 square meter shielded room."
So in other words, we have a quantum computer, you just can't SEE the quantum computer.
lol, one of the applications of this "quantum computer" is to identify if there is a car in a series of pictures, you just need to hire a couple of Chinese undergrads to sit in that 10 square meter room and hit a yes or no button as they are stream a bunch of images with or without cars.
I am kind of tired of this. I mean, the whining about something that you know is not an issue for 99% of people out there.
First, one of the prized features of the Xbox platform is the Xbox Live services. You know, those services that match you up in games with friends and offers social and multimedia feature. YOU KNOW, the service that requires an internet connection.
Second, pick up ANY smartphone or tablet and realize these devices are constantly online. You may not need to be online to play, but the online services are there in the background making sure your Tweets and Facebook followers are aware of what you are up to and you are kept informed of the world.
I know that in that RARE circumstance where there might be an internet outage or you take your Xbox One to the cottage and want to play some games on a rainy day might be a bummer if the game won't let you on because it can't phone home, but I doubt that will be an issue for most people out there.
So, its about people being naive and rebelling against a feature that, guess what, you have been supporting for the lat 8 years anyways everytime you turn on the Xbox360 and its signs you into the Live cloud.
But I think they named it correctly, Xbox One (country)
I am sure all this TV tie-in will fail miserably in Canada. They claim to do switching as fast as you can change the channel, realize in Canada on Roger's changing the channel takes 10 seconds because the stupid NextBox 2.0 box was designed for seniors that have to hunt and peck for numbers on their remote and will not allow fast key presses.
Also I am sure that Rogers will refuse to allow the Xbox One to change channels through a "cloud" service because Roger's already has their own app for changing channels and viewing a guide, and Roger's can make ad revenue off their own app.
And I am sure the NFL fantasy league features will only work for US customers. Will Canadians get NHL fantasy league?
Its great that all these features were thought of and look nicely integrated, but will most likely never work properly outside of the US. Its tiresome when companies make a product that does not work properly outside the one market they designed it for.
You know what else is useless....your post.
This water predates disease, it predates life on the planet, it even predates global warming.

Too bad nobody is buying stuff that it would go into anymore. nVidia and AMD are fighting out to be the performance leader of a lost cause.
BTW I was looking to buy my "last" high-performance laptop to kick around the house with, there is nothing worth buying anymore out there.
SILENCE, if it was a real Quantum computer then every program is already written in every language known and to be yet invented.
Wait for iOS 7 to come out with a flat UI and cards and then they will sue Samsung and Google for ripping off their UI "again".

Nobody says the IP has to be correct.
Microsoft creates a version of YouTube that blocks advertising, and still Microsoft is the scum of the known universe.
I agree that if Microsoft isn't respecting the terms for the API then they have to change it, but come on, Microsoft actually gave us an ad-free youtube client they are not the scum you want them to be.
Awesome in how much of an epic fail this "scientific" research.
Regardless of global warming, I don't need a geology degree to know the geographic poles shift constantly, and if you measured their location over millions of years, you could realize that there is so much involved in where they are located, like continental drift or earthquakes or ice ages, to realize this is a completely meaningless study.
But of course retarded greenists are just going to add this to their list of "proof" about how the planet is in a state of disaster because someone linked something meaningless to global warming and other people will over sensationalize what a pole shift will mean to the planet (you know, like the BBC).
I don't deny global warming, I just want to be realistic about it and find ways of dealing with its existence rather than looking for blame or wasting money and time trying to prove it. I also don't believe this is the end of the planet just one of the many changes this planet has gone through and survived.
Global warming is a geo-political issue, period. Its not a global catastrophe to nature.
Oh look over there, something new and shiny! And 1 billion people jump ship in a heartbeat.
Counting number of users on a platform is irrelevant considering how quickly those numbers change.
BB was once the king of smartphones, and then Apple came out with something shiny and new and people jumped ship.
Google came out with something shiny and new and people jumped ship.
All it takes is for a new shiny bauble to appear in the consumer electronics world and 1 billion people will simply vanish from one platform to another. it has nothing to do with features or quality, just how shiny it looks.
