Spinning hard drives for mobile devices have been around for many years.
And.... thank god they're pretty much non-existant anymore.
IOS on a tablet with a hard drive would be a nice laptop for most people
2005 called and wants its thick, noisy, fagile tablet concept back.

[...] At any given time, 8GB will give you 2^(8*(2^23)) states, which of course will change in a nanosecond. [...]
First of all, you mean 8 GiB, not 8 GB.
8 GB is 8*(10^9) bytes, whereas 8 GiB is 8*(2^30) = 2^33 bytes.
Secondly, 8 GiB is actually 2^(8*(2^33)) states, not 2^(8*(2^23)) states. (What you gave was the number of states for 8 MiB.)
And if you are going to use the Voyager craft as examples, please remember that it took 12 years to reach Neptune and will take THREE HUNDRED YEARS to reach the Oort cloud.
At which point it will be V'Ger.
Encryption is ALWAYS breakable by brute force. Question is how long does it take? Seconds? Hours? Months? Years? Decades? This is usually determined by key sizes. The longer the key, the longer it takes to brute force. (generally)
Chuck Norris can brute force a 256-bit key in the time it takes to blink his eyes.
I have no clue what all the above really means.... If you are saying that 256 bit keys are hard to break, I would concur. If you are saying that it would take a long time, I would again agree. However, if you look at "possible" it is totally possible to brute force a 256 bit key, it just takes TIME to do, LOTS of time OR lots of computers. Either way, it is perfectly possible... Now it may take a LOT of computers (more than are physically possible) or it may take a LONG time (more than we likely have before the sun destroys the earth) but that is all about being practical and not about being possible.
It's mathematically possible. It's humanly impossible. No human will ever build a machine using normal matter that is capable of it.
sugar: 50% fructose, 50% glucose
HFCS: 55% fructose, 45% glucose
zomg, clearly hfcs is the reason people are getting so much fatter.
It's not that simple.
Do a little reading about it. Your body has to expend energy/effort to break sugar into fructose + glucose, whereas with HFCS, the fructose and glucose are already separated and your body has immediate use of them. This is the kicker, and why HFCS is worse than sugar. Of course, even worse than HFCS is fruit juice that's high in fructose.
But it isn't linear, it is exponential...
It'd only be nice if you have a filing fetish. It's not useful. Any minor pleasure it might bring filing fetishists would be vastly outweighed by those ordinary phone users who lose applications.
That's a rather naive thing of you to say. Some of us have a hundred apps installed, and it's very useful to have them organized and be able to select them quickly with just a couple or three taps, rather than scrolling through dozens of pages of grids.
A good Waterfall approach gets 4x more done than any version of Agile
