Given AMD/ATI's reputation and my own experience, no wonder. I would have left AMD/ATI too. Much about marketing and less on performance. nVidia is my personal preference for just that reason. I am only writing this because of a recent experience with HP/AMD driver issues on a Windows 8 install and non-compliant, non-working OpenGL implemetation. Inexcusable in my humble opinion. This is NOT a gaming issue, rather a high performance application issue and this is not the first time. AMD, GYST (yes, explatives involved)! Screams of SCO type litigation...

The faster we can move data is in some way connected to how fast life moves in every respect. There is a point when "cool" is truly a four letter word. Not that I am arguing against it, it's just that there is a similar arguments within the AI industry. In more and more ways our achievements are outstripping out ability to deal with the consequences.

Let's just stop watching altogether! We are already subject to endless commercial leaders on the internet, overbearing radio commercials and now this. We cn take back the power by exercising our right/choice not to watch. Ass soon ad the ad revenue dries up, so will this crap. And another thing, get the hell out of my house!

Here we go. I saw something like this coming from Apple. Steve was the glue that held the helm. No doubt Apple's market experience has been tough with all the battles going on, but the color of Apple is changing. Expect more I'm affraid... For the record, I'm just an Oracle. I know nothing...

+ - In Vietnam, US relies on pirate site to network->

hessian writes "It's a wildly popular website laden with unlicensed songs and Hollywood movies, a prime exhibit of the digital piracy that is strangling the music industry in Asia and eroding legitimate online sales around the world.

The free-to-download bonanza has pushed Vietnam's into the ranks of the globe's top 550 websites. But a few clicks inside the site reveal a surprising presence: the U.S. government, which maintains a bustling social media account there."

Okay, so what is next? You question authority and you are fined or worse jailed? Listen, freedom of speech is fundamental to the tolerance that is required. As a global community we are never, or at least for the time period most of us, our children and their children are around, going to agree on everything, share *exact* beliefs, or practice the same religious exercises. That's one of the key elements of the American notion of the separation of church and state. I have to say I saw something like this comining since the social notion of Zero Tolerance came about here in the States. In order for things to function correctly you have to allow for a degree of disorder, chaos, mistakes or summed up: TOLERANCE. We are certainly all imprefect and to claim otherwise is simply wrong. I respect my neighbor just as long as they respect me no matter where they come from, what they believe, or what they practice. Further I have a right to disagree, not associate, and not accept any one else's imposition on my structure. In other words, mind your own business. It has worked here for a long time and will continue just as long as we, collectively, refuse to acquiesce.

I think there should be limits on Doctors and government officials constantly drumming up studies on what is good for us. We know already and the vascillations of these studies is way more harmful to my mental health and well being than say TV ever would be. Get the hell out of my and others business.
