2 seconds?! Utter rubbish. My Linux machine boots 10 seconds BEFORE I press the power button.
I don't really get the point of this post. Kids to make Facebook apps aren't going to be immediately allowed to start writing car OS's, it's a way of encouraging kids to try programming and some of them will love it and become programmers!
I started off typing out code from magazines, that got me in to programming and now look at me! I'm producing code that... ahh, OK, I just got the point of this post...
Heh heh heh, you said penis AND vagina, heh heh heh.
4 hour flights are unbearable? I've just completed one of two 11 hour flights back to NZ from the UK.
Seriously though, if you want to make flying enjoyable, try flying to the UK and back from NZ with a 1 year old who just wants to walk (something I did a year ago).
Then you'll LOVE a trivial 4 hour flight (or an 11 hour flight for that matter) on your own.
No, because NZ isn't nearly as full of scum lawyers as U.S. there SHOULD hopefully be sense applied here.
Oh, some country doesn't measure width of boards in metric but does so for most everything else, better not use metric at all in America then!
Damn, next think you know you'll bring in gun control too!

Yes yeah, blind hatred for something you don't understand and will never attempt to shows all the hallmarks for a sane mind. Back to your parent's basement and compiling kernels with you while the rest of the world carries on.
Agreed, I think it's exciting times ahead for Microsoft again.
I'll file this next to my "breakthrough battery tech that's just around the corner" file...
I looked at the paper and did not see where "performance" was defined or any hint as to what units it has. How is performance calculated? I see they compare "precision" to "recall".
From the article: “We evaluated the proposed method with other deep learning based methods and showed that our method results in faster and more accurate results,”
Therefore, I'd say that it's doing more than just rotating the image and re-running the algorithm, but you stick to doing that, it's cool.
...if he was also caught with some illegally downloaded movies! Probably be hung drawn and quartered in the main square of some Texas town.
Um, show be some data on "Handguns were banned in 1997, and the years following the ban saw an increase in violent crime involving handguns. The handgun crime rate now is about the same as before the ban."
