I tried to fix an iMac once by re-installing Mac OSX and I could not get it to boot from the installation disk. It would just sit there loading and loading and never load the installation. So I installed Ubuntu 14.04 and it worked flawlessly. Why is it so hard to install Macintosh OS on the actual hardware?
Just a question, if there was a black hole in the air at 25000 feet, that just materialised there, would the gravity of the Earth cause it to fall to the ground and into the planets core? Say if it was the size of a marble? Just a hypothetical.
There are fish that can survive swimming on molten sulphur. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/sci...
So taking out the SD card and a factory reset is not enough anymore? But how do you run DOD quality data wiping software on a phones built-in memory anyway? Most people hock phones and they are re-sold with phone numbers still on them. That should not happen. Let alone personal photos.
How much of a gravitational pull would there be on this object? Could you approach it closely or would that be a bad idea?
Use them together, use them in peace.
People will exploit any opportunity to make a quick buck out of customers anywhere. This goes to show that you must be very careful when using electronic payment and ATMS anywhere. Better security will help too.
First you end support for XP, which is a good thing, then you end support for Windows 7 in 2020, now you are ending support for Windows 8 on May 8. Why? the bog standard Windows 8 still has newer software than Windows 7, the only thing holding it back is the retarded Modern UI interface. But this is a pretty lame apocalypse. I am perfectly happy with Windows 7 in a qemu KVM hypervisor running on a Linux laptop. This way I can run Windows in a window and use MS Office for those tasks that require it and still have access to the superior Linux command line tools. I just wish I still had my XP Pro VM. Now that was fun. Why is everything an apocalypse these days?
Are there any old drives around that can read these disks? What do they do if the drives fail? I am surprised this really still works, but I guess the stuff works, so they have no real inclination to upgrade it anytime soon. What old operating system do you need to read 8" floppy disks? Would DOS 6.22 work or would you need something even older?
Will we get information from this rock concerning ancient life? There could have been life on mars in ancient times that was wiped out when the atmosphere disappeared. That would be very intriguing for humanity. Better news than the search for this so-called missing plane or the Royals tour.
How are they to withstand the heat and gravity sending a probe to the sun? Surely this is just to get close to take closeup pictures. But we have Helios for that. And will the probe be named the Icarus 1?
This will be the next thing demonised in the media, even though the technology has many positive benefits in terms of manufacturing. But after printing the object do you still need to trim it and sand it down? Maybe you print it slightly oversize and then trim it down to smooth it out. What is the exact finishing process with this tech?
At least China are interested in the moon. America are only interested in Iraq and Afghanistan. I hope that China land men on the moon and send back photos and video of the lunar lander. That would shut up the conspiracy theorists.
Asteroids do not have tails. Fusion powered spaceships or comets do though....
