I think the gp's point was that it's not his future. I am in full agreement. I will never use 'app' stores and remote access SaaS for critical applications.
This is only useful to vendors who want control over how users use their software. I would never want to depend on such 'services' for critical workflows.
..while reducing the incentives for developing non SaaS software, which protects users from the machinations of google.
Except that this feature has nothing to do with the kernel.
not enough.. mechanical noise is cyclical..
Yes, of course, like the USA is the only country with NSA/CIA like organizations right?
This is what happens when Academia becomes beholden to commercial interests.
No, I prefer my government strive for objectivity and not pander to the mob's feelings/bandwagons. Meanwhile it's really doing whatever it wants then claiming this 'consensus' between the two big parties as proof that they're doing what the citizens want.
It's close, but h264 encoders are more mature, faster, and h264 is handled by accelerated playback devices. VP9 is fine if all you're doing is watching it in a browser or in vlc...and have a beefy cpu for HD.
h264 compresses better. Using vp9 for the same feed will waste bandwidth.
Make no mistake, TED is a left wing think tank. They are no better than the heritage foundation or SPLC. That video clip offers little more than appeals to emotion and denial of truth in order to bring 'consensus' between the left and right..and if you pay close attention to the implications, the only way this can happen is if the right gives up its core principles, effectively becoming a weak echo of left wing ideology. There can be little real consensus as the two ideologies are fundamentally incompatible.
That said, consensus is a really shitty way of determining courses of action in important matters. We already have far too much emotion in the forms of overprotective, smothering rubbish from the left and 'terrorist'/security/religious doomsaying from the neocon right. We need more objectivity, reason, fact, and logic in washington, as there are some hard decisions to be made, decisions that will only get harder the longer we stave them off.
Actually, when you compare on like terms, both genders are making about the same wages per hour worked. If anything, right now, single women under 30 make a bit more on average than single men under 30.
Because, the free market would claim discrimination. Any men-only scholarships would be labeled sexist and shut down/shunned by the feminist trained community...and of course, that wouldn't be considered an act of oppression.
yes, except, soon, to get involved with producing will cost you $20000 instead of $2000...or even $300, for an entry level pc.
