I immediately thought of this exploit as well. Seems to me you would need a lot of NOP packets comparatively, the login info is just a few keystrokes. Plus login info is not time sensitive on the receiving end, delays in a voice stream might not be acceptable.
I hypothesize that women are instinctually driven to cryptic behavior in order to promote high social intelligence in their mates: They're confusing for the good of the species.
Brilliant. Someone get this man a research grant!
So every article I've read so far has stated that Nintendo is mum about the technicals of the 3d system, there is no indication of what 3d system it is using.
But this is Slashdot, surely someone must know?
I would guess it uses a lenticular lens, but would love to see some more details...
Considering you can still fly without id, and they have the automated ticket kiosks at the airport now, you wouldn't even have to go to the trouble of forging the boarding pass. Show up to the airport with stolen CC, print out ticket, tell security you forgot your id (subjecting you to the more thorough search) and you're off to terrorizing!
Someone got $6,000 to loan me? I want one...
Wow, you sure do seem sure of yourself, but a quick check reveals that Diesel fuel has a higher potential energy than Gasoline: In MJ/kg Diesel is 48, Gas 47.
You are right that it is a small difference.
The difference between GeForce and Quadro cards is almost always completely driver based, it is the exact same hw, different sw.
This basically a roll your own Tesla, and considering the Teslas connect to the host system via an 8x or 16x PCI-e add in card, I'm gonna say you are wrong when it comes to the bandwidth issue as well...
What an uninformed post. AMD did not neglect their fabs. Hell they spent 2.5 billion building a new one in 2003 (Fab 36); and guess what, they still own nearly half of Global Foundries (spinoff) that is building a new fab in NY. They were consistently 6 months or so behind Intel when stepping down to a smaller process, which was faster than anyone else in the industry.
Hmm and I wonder why they would have to sell off their fabs after investing heavily in them, perhaps it is because they were not getting the returns they expected due to market manipulation?
"AMD couldn't keep up with Intel's aggressive pricing because they simply could not produce competitive chips as inexpensively as Intel could." That statement is just hilarious. For the time period we are talking about here, AMD chips were cheaper and faster than Intel's. No questions about it.
Good point on the Atom pricing. I couldn't believe it when I heard about that, it is like Intel is going out of their way to get sued for anti competitive behavior.
I knew this was coming when I first heard about the White House scrapping their previous GroupWise based email archiving system, as they were switching to Exchange, and deciding to roll their own archiving system.
Thanks to Sarbanes-Oxley, email archiving is big business now and you can buy enterprise ready solution from the likes of EMC.
Instead they decided to have a private contractor roll a custom system, spent a couple hundred million and 2 years, and then scrapped it for not working right (scrapped by the White House CIO).
In the end they implemented an EMC solution, right before Bush left office.
They can pull the wool over non technical peoples eyes, but I have no doubt they purposely FUBAR'ed this, there was no reason not to go with an industry standard solution from the get go unless they were up to no good.

Wrong! But I'll cut ya some slack cause it was only released a few weeks ago:
ATI cards do support video acceleration under linux, although not as nice of an implementation as Nvidia's yet...
That is cause you are not using the right setting. Text size does exactly that, makes all text bigger. You want to change the DPI setting, which will make text, icons, menus, etc. bigger but will not effect Media Center...
No you are wrong. The iPhone data plan is $30 a month.
Intel has a very similar tech called MyWifi in their newer cards, it uses Windows ICS so it differs in implementation, but does offer a full AP mode while being connected to an external wifi network.
So this feature was created by Microsoft Research back in 2005, and has been available for download ever since: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/994abd5f-53d1-4dba-a9d8-8ba1dcccead7/
I fail to see how this is news, they included it by default in Win 7 and someone accessed it, yay. This has been doable for 4 years...
