The irony with Intel's gaming of marketing was that it was actually AMD who broke 1 GHz.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
That's right. They state that everything else is the same as the original Pi B+ which means it runs everything off the USB bus.
Having a better CPU is vitally important when you run nearly everything off USB. The USB bus is CPU-dependent, unfortunately, but with this new processor/memory package, we've got a big improvement, here.
The Raspberry Pi series is an awesome hobbyist device at an impossibly low price point.
I'm glad they are finally offering more memory and multi-core processors. That way I don't need to get a BananaPi or other copycat. This way, I can continue to support the vitally important Raspberry Pi foundation and their goals.
Thanks for finally offering more memory and multi-core. Next time let's also choose a truly open framebuffer, or let's pressure Broadcom to open their VideoCore architecture once and for all.
I switched to the Kensington Expert Mouse trackball when it first came out many years ago. All versions have four buttons. The newer versions have added a scroll ring around the trackball. As a result, I have been able to avoid RSIs. The added benefit is that users of these trackballs have enhanced functionality in day-to-day operations, from programming, to browsing, to graphics work, and gaming.
Since you mentioned physical discomfort with a dangling ring finger I must stress that you try out the Kensington Expert Mouse (can be bought new as cheap as $60). The ring finger rests on the right button or the upper-right button depending on your preference.
They caught up a little by purchasing Amiga Corporation in 1984, but those used Motorola CPUs along with a family of custom integrated circuits that were developed well into the 1990s. Amiga was partially financed by Atari until Tramiel bought Atari.

This reminds me of the "Are you my grandson?" Twitter gag. Someone sent messages to hundreds of celebrities and media personalities stating things like, "Are you my grandson?" and "Where am I?" The account got tens of thousands of followers and mentions on the radio and in the media.
Then, suddenly, one morning the user changed the name and picture and started tweeting jihadist propaganda.
The HP EliteBook "workstation" is very, very fast and has a robust cooling system. It's far better than a Mac. I also use a Dell XPS Ultrabook which is just as fast but is also extremely quiet and stays cool mostly due to the aggressive Turbo Core feature. I run a VirtualBox system with full Linux desktop running both PostgreSQL and MySQL servers on this little Ultrabook, too.
In a case I was recently troubleshooting, the vector was an advertisement popup that asked the user to click to download and install an Adobe Flash Player update.
The user downloads it and runs it. Then it runs quietly in the background with the same privileges as the current user.
I feel the need to reiterate here that Cryptowall does NOT require privilege escalation. If you happen to be a local administrator it will ask for it so it is able to delete shadow copies and Restore Points, but it does not need any extra privileges to encrypt your data and thus accomplish most of its aims.
RC4 isn't "broken." It is only bad when used incorrectly to store static data, like some older electronic wallet software had done. When used as a stream cipher it's very efficient and very, very secure.
Even the default re-keying interval is sufficient but if you are really skeptical you can shorten it and have it re-key based on time, quantity of data transmitted, or both.
You could save yourself a lot of time and effort and consider using Dropbear.
This didn't happen.
Macbooks are RoHS and use silver solder. The softest silver solder flows at a minimum of 681 degrees Fahrenheit.
Wow. People use Jabber? Yes, people use Jabber.
This is not news, not now, not ever. Jabber and XMPP is a real thing, much more real than IRC. Please move along and report something worthwhile, folks.
Who told you that? The Nook Simple Touch has a two-point capacitive multitouch display. I've got one right here.
Sorry, you're not correct. See the other poster's response.
