Capacitors used on your motherboard are mostly there as part of filter circuits and therefore chosen for their unique transient response (i.e. exactly how they behave over time once a voltage is applied). In other words, the discharge rate matters. Can't be too fast, can't be too slow.
Designing silicon based super caps for long term energy storage with slow discharge does not automatically mean that the same tech will replace regular electrolytic caps. I'm not saying they won't, haven't even read TFA, but the design goals are certainly distinct.
In Vietnam, government says, "Don't say that shit online!"
In the Free World, government says, "Go ahead! Say that shit online. We're watching..."
Yeah because designing a GPU is not really making stuff. A bit like how writing software is done by lawyers and executives.
This sounds like good news and an obvious step to me. It should lead to smaller and more energy efficient computing devices in the future.
Here's another point of view for you to consider: http://www.jonathan-cook.net/2012-11-18/why-gaza-must-suffer-again/
It's an interesting premise for a story, but I don't know if I really bought into the whole going crazy thing.
Seriously, I may have been trolled, but when I replied to this troll his post was at +5 insightful, so shame on you mods. How anyone would throw mod points at this wacko is beyond me.
p.s. I'm actually not a Muslim, not that it matters, but if it triggers you to reassess your crappy world view then I think I should mention it. Then again, if you're just trolling then you got me again.
You are a racist.
But even worse than that, you're an idiot. I'm yet to meet a truly gifted and intelligent person who is racist.
You've made some claims about the reasons for your living the good life compared to others without providing a shred of evidence in support other than to denigrate other cultures.
The reality, according to people in the know, is that the Angry Arab Jamboree of 2011/2012 was caused by severe financial pressure caused by food poverty on already badly-run middle-eastern Muslim countries.
Wow. Just like that you managed to lump four or five completely different protest movements in different countries run by different political and religious ideologies into.
The people who run these countries like to keep their people illiterate, corrupt, religious and poor so they can maintain control; unfortunately for them, it gives them VERY little margin for error when a few harvests fail, especially when even in good times, 70% of the country is quite literally on the breadline.
70%? Quite literally? Which country are you talking about? Do you have figures to back up that claim? (Hint: The Middle East is not a country) Saudi Arabia is highly strict religiously but they are very wealthy and spend a tonne of money on education. They don't need an ignorant populace to stay in control. Mubarak in Egypt always painted the Muslim Brotherhood as the bogey man and was very popular among secularists and the non Muslims.
I have little sympathy for anybody here. It's self inflicted -- people dumb enough to wait until they're starving -- and spending 70% of their incomes on bread -- before they hold their governments accountable probably deserve the kicking they're getting.
Yeah those mothers watching their kids go hungry, or the wives scared to watch their husbands go off to work in the fear that they may be abducted or shot by a sniper, yeah they deserve what they're getting. What jackass you are. You have demonstrated your complete ignorance of the complexity and diversity politics of the region, and you completely ignore the effects of outside political interference. Next time you feel like opening your mouth about the Middle East go do some serious research, or just shut the hell up.
