+ - Bringing Patients Back from the Dead-> 1

Submitted by FattyBoeBatty
FattyBoeBatty (458019) writes "Interesting article claiming that patients generally don't die from lack of oxygen — but from the rapid reintroduction of it. Cells without oxygen can conceivably live for upwards of an hour without any damage. While this idea is already proving successful in small ER trials, this may change the way emergency medicine is delivered around the world."

I have two opportunities; one consisting as a Java Web Developer, the other being an ASP.NET Web Developer primarily using VB 2005. Considering that the benefits/corporate culture are fairly equal, and forgetting the "Do what makes you happy" philosophy, what do you think is the best alternative?

uop (929685) writes "AMD released details of their next-generation graphics card (http://www.dailytech.com/AMD+Releases+Final+R600+ Specs/article6138.htm).
Cards are due in 6 weeks, and highlights include:
- 700 million transistors
- Full 512 bit memory interface
- 1GB of memory and vapor chill cooling in the reference configuration

In this round of the battle between the major graphics companies, GPUs have reached transistor counts in the server-CPU range.
Can they keep this battle economical without a major design shift?"

You are lost in the Swamps of Despair.
