Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Just post other site's actually funny content, or don't post anything until tomorrow.
BRING BACK OMG PONIES!
How is it more generous? It looks like the same thing: you can use the patents, as long as you create something that complies with the (Java/.NET) standards.
The fact Dalvic wasn't a full JSE implementation was why Oracle sued Google. You could even argue that, given Oracle lost, the Java patent licensing is more generous!
"I'll worry about Clarkson being violent when I find out what was said, and not until."
If the producer was verbally assaulting him then Clarkson could get him canned in a minute.
Time to move past school and into the adult world.
No. I question the ethics of paying people to beat each other for my entertainment.
Apple only counts for money made.
What a load of garbage.
I love OS/X but the latest round of Apple hardware shows what happens when the "designers" run the show.
New Mac Pro... Stuck with Ivy Bridge CPUs when Haswell-e CPUs are out. GPUs are good but not near the best you can get plus no Nividia option for Cuda.
Mac Book line. You can not upgrade the ram and can not upgrade the SSDs. Prices for SSDs are going down but if you need more you have to buy a new notebook.
Apple is making money hand over fist but RIM and Nokia made a lot of money after the iPhone came out as well.
As much as I love OS/X and my MacBook Pro it is PCs that still do most of the real work. Servers run Linux, BSD, or Windows and not OS/X for the most part.
Desktops are running Windows for the most part.
This clunky spacebot has no style. Everybody knows that the ultimate vehicle for reentry and soft landing is shaped exactly like a 1959 Corvette.
Just don't bring the green orb with you.
Wait, we can have bread AND butter?!
But I like toast and jam.
Was this a Fareed original, or yet another of his pieces of plagiarism?
Pretty sure it means 'return on investment' in this context, but as they don't supply the cost of the investment, the location these salaries are drawn from, the number of years after the degree, etc, etc, etc, it's just another bit of Dice-tastic link bait.
I was clearly in your second group a few years back...
Maybe you just were not sexy enough, hm?
I'm too sexy for my hat, what do you think about that?
I don't know if that is GP's objections but they are pretty good reasons to think radio isotopes are a threat to the environment and ultimately, humanity.
Not if dealt with correctly.
The spent fuel can be recycled. The short lived radio isotopes do not need to be stored very long. The medium waste goes back to fuel. The low level is close to background.
"Newer" reactor designs like the LFTR and I use new only in the sense that the prototype was built and tested about 40 years ago but not put into production. Produce a lot less waste and are walk away safe.
"And speaking of vilification, that is what happened to the peer reviewed science [stormsmith.nl] regarding the energetic return of the nuclear industry"
Um... What journal was that published? Who reviewed that? All I see is a website that seems to be dedicated to anti-nuclear. Some of the reports listed at the end are in journals.
Nothing much, but then you lose the guarantees of service and predictable pricing, and to be honest, finding a reliable plumber or AC person is sufficiently difficult in the real world to ensure that something that makes those guarantees will be popular, even if, on average, it costs a little more than going directly.
The only thing more annoying than a computer is a computer that tries to be helpful.
"Speaking as someone who wants to see the NSA dismantled, I hope these shooters died painfully if they were doing it as a political statement."
Yea and since both statements are pretty much crazy we can now dismiss you.
To hope for someone to die painfully in this case is unethical at best. These people had to be stopped. The best result would have been for no one to be injured but to seek others to die painfully is nothing but revenge and in this case unwarranted.
