It's not a 64-core CPU, it's a floating-point processor. The basic Parallela model comes with a 2-core ARM CPU.

Ok, they are not full x86 cores - this may also explain the different power consumption - but Intel is targeting the same use(r)s of Adapteva. By the time Intel is ready I hope Linux has taken the world and GPUs are eventually implemented blob-free on top of beds of the Adapteva chips.

I was also sure the nobody would use used parts to produce new hard disks so I was quite sure that no data is possibly stored in brand new device. With flash devices things are different, as Marcello reports in his findings."

Resurrecting the Mighty Mammoth, Cheaply 322

somanyrobots writes with an interesting followup in the New York Times to the earlier-reported substantial reconstruction of the woolly mammoth genome: "Scientists are talking for the first time about the old idea of resurrecting extinct species as if this staple of science fiction is a realistic possibility, saying that a living mammoth could perhaps be regenerated for as little as $10 million. The same technology could be applied to any other extinct species from which one can obtain hair, horn, hooves, fur or feathers, and which went extinct within the last 60,000 years, the effective age limit for DNA." (The Washington Post article linked from the earlier post was much more skeptical, calling such an attempt "still firmly the domain of science fiction." The New York Times article, while describing the process in similar terms, also calls attention to recent advances in sequencing DNA, as well as recoding DNA for cloning.)

Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
