I don't think it's true that DRM in the browser requires a closed-source browser. If the content provider encrypted their content on a per-stream, per-user, per-viewing basis, then you could not simply redirect or strip off the DRM. You would atually need to purchase a one-use decryption key from the content provider.
Now, that doesn't prevent you from recording the content and redistributing it DRM-free, but certainly nothing in the above requires a closed-source model of any sort.
You couldn't be more wrong. Signed ints are usually the best way to go in C/C++.
Actually, he's not wrong at all. He said signed integers don't behave in a very predictable manner, and he's right. Signed integers have undefined (actually, to be more precise, implementation-defined) behavior for mod and div of negative values. You cannot be sure whether -4 / 3 is -1 or -2, without knowing how your compiler implements it. Some round toward zero, others toward negative infinity. Recent drafts of C++ are trying to fix this.
Finally, hinting is not the process of varying proportions. It's not even remotely that. Hinting is the process of adding hints to a font. A font designer takes a typeface and hints the font manually. Note that there are algorithms to assist with hint generation... hinting the hinting, if you will.
It's not double, it's quadruple, which is why it's called 4k.
Quadruple is ***NOT*** why it's called 4k.
"4k" is short for 4000, e.g, pixels. The "4" in 4000 has absolutely nothing to do with the quadrupling. It's merely a coincidence.
"About 982 megawatt hours a day, to be exact"
982 MWh/day / 24 = ~41 megawatts
Come on reporters, convert brain-dead units into normal units.
Yeah, we want it 1.21 GW/day units, e.g., how many bolts of lighting per day.
I am a subscriber. Will the servers shutdown?
No, but they might shut down.
