Yeah except HIV is not communicable via saliva, sorry.
It'd be nice to have this for watching movies and TV shows. There's only probably 15 minutes worth of good content in any given TV episode, and maybe 30 minutes in a movie!
Slashdotted!? We must make note of this-- a page hasn't been Slashdotted in almost a decade!
Faulty firmware? Are you referring to the brake debacle a few years ago?
I think it's been pretty well established by know that it was all media attention driving that and Toyota really didn't have anything wrong with its vehicles.
Per the internets, the curving is done in movie theatres to help avoid the pincushion effect from the projector. Since we are talking about TVs and not projectors, the pincushion effect is irrelevant.
Curved television displays aren't "largely" a gimmick-- they're just a gimmick.
Yeah no proof Iran had anything to do with it... except when you look at the WHOIS information for that domain.
I, for one, welcome our new indestructible botnet overlords.
I'm guessing those accounts for which there is no provided passwords were those with 'strong passwords' that did not fall to a dictionary/brute force attack. Good for them! And that just shows that having a strong password is a good idea.
I wonder how long until a prescriptivist control-freak robot develops to rule over the language and erase all usage that it disagrees with.
This sounds very, very bad.
but what's with the title of this story?
"Former Senator Wants to Mine the Moon"
Wouldn't it be more informative and important to mention, in the title, that he is one of the few people to actually walk on the moon?
"Apollo Moonwalker Believes We Should Mine Moon"
Or, if you really want that Senator in there...
"Former Senator, having walked on the moon, now wants to mine it"
That's not too bad actually-- but why have a number that stands in for the clock speed instead of just having the clock speed itself? It makes comparing CPUs of different brands difficult because there is absolutely no correlation when it comes to the "stand-in" number.
At least when things were always done in mhz, it was relatively easy to "approximate" how fast two chips were compared to one another within the same family line or even amongst different manufacturers, provided you were at least somewhat familiar with the performance of the product lines in question.
Are the stand-in numbers of today just some fancy marketing gimmick or do they really have some deep-down meaning? I guess in the end it doesn't matter too as long as there are hardware review site to point people in the right direction. Still though, not having to look up everything all the time feels a bit nice.
I agree-- the numbering and naming schemes in use nowadays are ridiculous and sometimes hard to decipher. In fact, ever since they stopped posting the clockspeed next to the processor it's been confusing.
It's too bad we can't revert back to the old usage where it's just the processor name + clockspeed... with the addition of how many cores. Yes, it was never a perfect system (not all makes of processor have equal performance at a given frequency), but it sure as hell was better than how they do it now.
For testing CPU in a video game, it's traditional to generally run the benchmark at a low resolution in order to help ensure that the CPU is the bottleneck and not the graphics card. Compared to the processor, more strain is placed upon the graphics card/gpu as the resolution is increased.
It has been this way for a very, very long time.
