By definition, IQ is measured as a standard distribution curve with an IQ of 100 being the average. If everyone on the planet suddenly got twice as smart, we'd still have the same IQ because again, IQ measures you in relation to the rest of the population.
If you develop a new IQ test, then you have to standardize the scoring on it so that average == 100 or you're not actually testing for IQ.
From Wiki: When current IQ tests are developed, the median raw score of the norming sample is defined as IQ 100 and scores each standard deviation (SD) up or down are defined as 15 IQ points greater or less
The Amiga 500 had 512K of RAM and even expanded to 1MB, it's still less than the cache on a modern PC so you can emulate the entire machine in cached memory - combined with instruction througputs and current clock cycles, a current PC is something like 10,000+ times faster for 32-bit integer operations involving memory.
Why bother? you cannot dismiss the hardware in the middle that GENERATES the audio... if your integrated hardware is poor -- your quality receiver amplifies poor quality audio.
HDMI can output DIGITAL Audio. MS has very good digital audio software mixing and playback algorithms. And many games use a library like FMOD which does software mixing and a DAC output anyhow.
You really only need to worry about a sound card if your PC is outputting ANALOG audio to HIGH QUALITY Amp & Speakers.
Not quite sure how this is flamebait? Some people would actually like to save money even at the expense of a little privacy.
There were a number of things I liked about the Automatic app but the Metromile just seemed to work much better (didn't lose trips) and it was free. If you're gonna be tracked while driving, I'd recommend the Metromile device.
However, circumventing medallions is not necessarily a bad thing considering the downsides of medallions.
There is no guarantee you will get keyframes using H264 if you are compressing video without detectable screen cuts. Some H264 compliant codecs, like the very commonly used x264 library (used by FFMPEG), do not even need to have dedicated keyframes at all but rather use a technique called Periodic Intra Refresh to encode videos without keyframes. Periodic Intra Refresh provides much better streaming
Unfortunately this will hit teenagers the most. Contrary to what the supports of the home cherry pick, those who earn minimum wage have the least amount of experience.
Did you know that in the 1980's you could make minimum wage and pay for rent, food, and your college tuition? In fact, minimum wage in the 1980's was around twice the average college bills for in-state tuitions. (While the article I linked was for Ohio, it holds true for most of the country at the time and certainly in WI where I went to college).
Imagine being able to work a minimum wage job part time through college and come out with a degree and little or no debt. While it sounds ludicrous in today's world, this was the reality of America only 30 years ago.
At least the machines will get your order right.
Ummm... have you tried talking to Siri or Cortana or Google Now lately? Yeah... I'm sure the machines will get my orders right at least 25% of the time.
