Science has solved the waste issue. Titanate nanofibers. One gram cleans a ton of waste water.
Download it before the llama dies.
Hold the boat, a return to C or C++ would be a HUGE boost, no need to throw the baby out with bath water.
ASM programmers could never build rich content apps that the world relies on today. The code would be ridiculous, think the worst COBOL app times a 1000 for every application used today.
No, moving dynamic languages and compiling them to optimized C or chunking out high level critical code into optimized C/C++ is what every major web service is focusing on today. Facebook for example is realizing well over 50% gains by just scraping some PHP components with unmanaged code.
While most non-tech people would agree with your 99% statement, if left to people with this belief, we'd still be stuck with command line PC. Hell, why innovate at all?! The reality is that we are really just scratching the surface of ubiquitous computing. PC absolutely need to get faster because life has more resolution, more data, and ever increasing demand for analysis. I have a perfectly working iBook G4 that can't even browse today's web because it's so media intense. Imagine a world where HD content or HI DPI displays are the norm. Imagine the amount of number crunching a future version of Kinect needs to better understand sensor data.
The point is that if you spend a few minutes to think about all the things that would be nice to be able to do when not at a computer, you will realize that our demand for local compute capacity is not really slowing. The business model maybe changing, but we all still want better faster cheaper and more.
Its fucking 2013 and voice recognition still sucks beyond belief in real-world scenarios. Need more compute and storage and bandwidth to address the issues.
Your excellent explanation is exactly why bitcoin will never be a primary currency, because people will almost never buy products in BTC irrespective of exchange rates. The product sold using BTC are priced not based on BTC fundamentals, they are priced based on the local currency fundamentals and than converted to the Exchange rate on BTC markets. Because of the volatility in the BTC market, ecommerce sites must implement hedging systems pegged with the market.
Thank you, whoever you are. Your response reminds me of a classic definition of feminism being the radical notion that women are people.
Typically, when you get into a good committed relationship between capable people, then each helps support the other when they need it. Man or woman doesn't matter when the chips are down, love and committment do.
Children, on the other hand, are way more expensive than a lot of would-be parents give them credit for. To age 18, it's about $400K. If you're helping with college expenses, tack on another $200K. The little rascals are also the greatest diminisher of marital happiness, according to serious studies on the subject. I'm sure being a parent is a wonderful experience (that I've never had), but be careful out there and don't end up a parent by accident.
It is worth noting that the cost projections for children that you have outlined are unique to American society. The way we've engineered the economic incentives in this country have made it so that children are seen as an "expense" as opposed to an investment for future societal returns. Not all countries are structured in this manor. In America we incentivize middle and upper income people to not reproduce.
A speedup of 17x over a single core. Using an 8 core Xeon (16 threads with hyperthreading) would give a similar speedup.
From the two-page report: "When compared to a 6-core CPU (m-cpu), the speedup ratios range from 1.54 to 3.20."
so yeah, the 17x is misleading because what network monitoring load would run on a single core?
Actually researchers are required by state laws and university guidelines to follow research consent laws regardless of whether they are done via the university or not. In this case however, the issue is blurred because it depends what the researcher is doing. The line between research using aggregated data and using platform BI tools to benchmark effectiveness are related things but different. It may not be easy to draw the lines as easily as before because data is used for everything now.
No speculation on NHS funding at this point will matter. The UK has the same ability to to spend more money on NHS as does the US and issuing more reserve currency. Even if NHS doesn't issue more currency to cover the gap, they can easily reallocate spending from their tax revenues.
Comparatively the UK spends roughly HALF of what the US does and achieve far better outcomes. NHS funding base been cut and flattened so today it is massively underfunded. As a former UK expat, the British people will throw out any government that changes the social contract of the NHS. Â£30B is chump change for the UK economy. This article exist simply as a comparative fodder for news between US and UK. It's totally apples and oranges.
...insurance company states that extended warranties and their corresponding value to consumers are a function of individual risk factors....duhhhhhhhhhh.
I totally agree. They should start Socratic method I high school if they want more critical thinking.
I did a personal experiment in college. I bought a vintage engineering calculus text book from the 1940s to see if I could learn from it and apply I learned in class. My hypothesis was correct.
I failed miserably. Those Manhattan project boys were one of a kind.
Tax revenue as a percentage as a % of GDP is the lowest in US history. So taxes aren't killing innovation.
If by inflation you mean CPI, this has gone up but only marginally. Inflation on the other hand is targeted at 2% which is the norm for most OECD countries. The risk-free rate in finance is the lowest it's ever been. Even the 10-year treasury note is at an all time low.
Investors don't invest is early stage companies if the return is only 15-20%. You can get shitty returns like that in the stock market with much less risk. Try 500% returns or more.
Intensive Labor utilizing Manufacturing will never return to America again, nor should it. Manufacturing as an industry to lower unemployment is a fantasy. People should get over it.
Regulations aren't killing jobs. The lack of demand in the economy is killing jobs.
Income inequality is killing jobs.
$32 Trillion locked up in overseas tax havens is killing jobs.
The effective corporate tax rates in USA is about 12%, even though the statutory rate is 35%.
The US tax code is killing jobs.
The current global economy values capital over labor. This is killing jobs.
Taxes are killing jobs
Regulations are killing jobs.
Haha so true. At USC, they didn't event really teach VLSI or Verilog in the senior courses for the BSEE. But i luckily got an internship at intel where i quickly learned both. The tooling and software side of EE was totally unrepresented in the curriculum. It was sad.
