No, it would be suing Ford because their SatNav routed everybody in the Mountain-View area through Google's parking lots.
Yeah, but writing a tool to break a website's TOS, and distributing that tool, makes you criminally liable under the DMCA.
Frequencies of 30 - 140 MHz. And to think that it has only been 20 years since our CPUs weren't even that fast.
I have no idea where you got that number, or why you think that there even is any limit below 100%.
Do some reading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_Engine#Efficiency Note how the graphs for a Carnot Engine start at ~40% and go up to ~75% as the inlet temperature rises.
The formula for efficiency for an ideal carnot engine is 1 - Tc/Th, with Tc and Th in K. So if you have a cold side of 0K, your efficiency is 100%.
It depends on the temperature differential. The higher the difference the more efficient the engine.
A single example is not a stereotype. What you're doing, interpreting his books differently because of his religious beliefs, is just as bad.
I'm sorry, but if you construe that as "gay bashing", you seriously need to get a grip.
It isn't a teen flick. Read Card's interview here where he says that is what Hollywood wanted, but he was holding out.
There's an interview with Card where he mentions the script he wrote, all the way back in 1998:
If this is keeping with that, then they are telling the story from the adult perspective, because 'keeping the secret' until the end makes it necessary to leave out too much of the story when you're telling it by film. So instead the audience knows, but Ender doesn't, so we get to see his actions knowing entirely what the consequences are. It also integrates some of the Ender's Shadow elements, like more information about Bean.
In a way this is even more brutal than how the book tells it.
So you're saying that the process of giving birth is equally traumatic, both physically and mentally, to both mother and father, so they should both get the same amount of time off?
Yes, but in the mean time you earn the interest on the $400k. Just make sure you mine on the first day of the month and pay the bill on the last.
I find this topic extremely interesting, and it is a field I could see myself getting involved in, however my background is undergrad elec/mech with my MSc. in robotics/mapping/AI. I've also done a ton of simulation work via Robocode. What kind of background topics would I need to still learn to do this kind of work? I'm guessing quantum physics and chemistry along with some more hardcore comp-sci.
Couldn't you account for the hysteresis effect by reading the value first, then changing the strength of the write accordingly?
It doesn't help having a 90+% efficiency current driver if you are then sticking a big power-dissipating resistor in series with your LED. If you want high-efficiency current drivers look at standard switch-mode power supplies, something like this at a high frequency, possibly with another capacitor across the power supply; it will give you efficient, smooth PWM-based current control. Note, the LED doesn't see any PWM, but the regulator is PWM based, ie. a switch-mode power supply.
