A car EMP cannon has been one of those things that tech workers have talked about for years. You could use it to screw up data centers as well...or maybe the bank's power substation. How about a pacemaker?
Wow, that sounds exactly like how the rich operate.
He wants a widescreen matte non-retina display MBP.
Jesus, haven't people heard the good news about Internet shopping? It's 2013.
My i7 MBP with hard drive and DVD is chugging away, and will chug away forever - or as close to forever as possible.
If you need the old ones they're still on Apple's refurb/clearance page. The only thing you can't get is the widescreen glossy display, which most people hated (though I have one and it's great).
Samsung cheats at benchmarks by changing the hardware behavior when it detects certain apps with specific names are running. Change the name, and the cheating stops.
That's the fundamental difference between Samsung and most of the rest of the Android devices. The name is the key to the cheat.
Funny how you're ignoring lots of detailed information about that. This has nothing to do with Apple, this has everything to do with Samsung/HTC/Android.
Great attempt to troll, though!
Any diagnostic test can be wrong, and the public and medical community is OK with that.
The problem isn't the test, it's that there's no way to verify that the recipient of the results has any idea what the results mean. If a human being is involved, at least you can pretend that someone attempted to make sure the person in question understood the results.
Personally, I think 23 and me is fine as it was. OTOH, the FDA has to deal with "the public", who is invariably stupid.
We were looking at what we could figure out about the architecture of healthcare.gov, and one problem is that it looks like it's using Oracle Identity Manager to manage the permissions of what users can/can't see. That means that OIM is burned in - and it's probably brutally slow, since every time you need to check a permission you go through OIM.
I'm not positive that's the case, but it fits given what pieces of the architecture I've seen. It would also explain why the system doesn't perform - permissions checking is always brutal, especially if you don't cache them. Caching permissions has more issues.
Drones will be a great defensive tool. For a few million dollars you could (or will be able to ) deploy a large swarm of drones that can disable or destroy naval targets costing orders of magnitude more than your drone force. That's great news for the countries that have no real need for a navy.
For offense, well, they make great flying bombs. Not everyone needs a predator drone that can be flown over and over. Sometimes all you need a a swarm of delivery agents that can come at a target from multiple directions...in waves, autonomously.
There's nothing the US can really do about it, so it's unclear what the point of this article is, except to trade drone use case ideas.
Musk must have used the wrong formula when publicizing the Tesla rating.
Even the Wikipedia people say that there's lots of information on Wikipedia that isn't reliable. Wikipedia should never be relied on as a source of truth or accuracy.
In any case, wasn't there a thing a few months ago where the editors were getting paid on the side?
If a company employee changes an article, why is that worse than a volunteer changing an article?
The researchers probably found there isn't just one controller - there were many, many good controllers, each for a different audience.
Why didn't they release multiple controllers, one for kids, one for adults? One for women, one for men? As Prego discovered, there isn't one spaghetti sauce that makes everyone happy; there are many, many sauces, all of which will make some people happy.
it's unbelievable that the hayes command set is still in use today. I can just see someone thousands of years from now typing this into their cellphone to get free calls:
ATDT 123 456 7890
Well actually, an individual in that situation makes a decision based on their particular understanding of reality. When you start getting into multiple individuals it's less clear about what how they decide. Decision making by groups is substantially different, and can be totally sub-optimal. As an example, look at the various mass deaths in clubs/bars that burn down - or traffic behaviors in the third world.
Hypercard was deep-sixed because of the huge amount of support resources it gobbled up. That what I heard, so YMMV.
D5 AA 96 forever!
