Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Aren't most motherboards sort of like this now? They come with a dual bios, one of which is read-only. If something happens to your writable bios, you boot from the read-only and copy it over to the writable bios, and then reboot from the writable one.
That site... it's hurting my brain. I don't know whether to laugh, or cry, or huddle in a corner and start sucking my thumb. Carbon HDMI cable
There are significant, audible differences between HDMI cables. We're not sure how this is possible, since HDMI is purported to be a purely digital interface, however, the sonic differences are repeatable and consistent from system to system. A better HDMI cable makes a better digital audio cable, period. This is as true for music as it is for movies.
In chrome, you can go to Settings -> Manage search engines and set up the same type of thing. I can type in "w alexander hamilton" to go directly to Wikipedia, or "i the hobbit" to go directly to IMDB.
To easily detect most AI, tell it this:
- Remember the number five.
- [Optional filler questions]
- What is the number that I told you to remember (plus two)?
One thing this chart doesn't take into account is how many other people would find the automation useful. That changes the calculation significantly, especially if it is something that could be sold to others.
However, for this particular question, the number of other people who would use the automated solution is likely zero.
Disclaimer: I could probably be classified as a Google fanboy, but I do not own Google Glass.
I think these types of arguments are silly, because they take an already existing issue and then pretend that Glass is the only cause. Seriously, look around the next time you're in a restaurant. There are always people pulling out their cell phones to snap a picture of their food or friends, and of course people they don't know will be in the background of the photos. This is really what you're worried about with Glass? This already happens.
Do you think that the problem will be worse with Glass? If so, why? And how much worse?
I posted a comment on that article. There seemed to be a serious anomaly with the amount of Troll mods for that one article.
I am wondering if the gave Bennett unlimited mod points to use there.
Not sure why they truncated my submission
Slashdot obviously has strict requirements for submission lengths. </sarcasm>
Who gave Bennett unlimited mod points?
Let's take a look at comments modded as Troll in past Bennett articles:
2014 Geek Gift Guide 2 comments marked Troll, both of them by Bennett
An Algorithm To Prevent Twitter Hashtag Degeneration 5 comments marked Troll, 3 of them by Bennett
Clarificiation on the IP Address Security in Dropbox Case 1 comment marked Troll
Big Talk About Small Samples 2 comments marked Troll, both of them by Bennett
Debunking a Viral Internet Post About Breastfeeding Racism 0 comments marked Troll
We Need Distributed Social Networks More Than Ello 0 comments marked Troll
An Algorithm to End the Lines for Ice at Burning Man 0 comments marked Troll
Now look at the mods on comments in this article - 40 comments have been marked as Troll. And most of them are comments badmouthing Bennett. Slashdot, you have some 'splainin' to do.
My daily web browser is Nightly.
I see what you did there!
Yep, I clicked on Nerval's Lobster's profile link after a few of his submissions and saw the "Works for Slashdot" badge.
Why doesn't this badge show up next to a submitter's username, instead of only when they post comments? This should really be changed.
