Firefox 12 still has a memory leak in it. Nothing like getting back from the weekend to see Firefox has a 1.5 GB RAM footprint and making my system crawl to a halt. Always amusing to turn on the task manager and just watch the memory getting sucked up in real time.
No I'm not new here, but the grammar of the subject indicates that iPads were being replaced by math textbooks which to me is much more newsworthy than the fact that some school administrator thinks that they need to replace a $100 text book with a $500 electronic device with roughly half the shelf-life.
I wouldn't be surprised either, except for the lighting. There is a shadow on the right shoulder, but the right side of his face is lit up.
On some architectures (e.g. 68k), there were pre-decrement and post-increment addressing modes. So things like *a-- = *b-- would be slower than *--a = *--b
Or the one who can tell you why --i; was faster than i--;
Hmm. I've found many bugs in compilers, operating systems, and commonly used libraries. I've also found bugs in a handful of different microprocessors. One simply needs to be able to cleanly identify and prove the root cause. Unfortunately, that is not so simple.
btw Programming languages don't really have bugs. Their implementations can.
