How about a printer that can print a printer?
Yeah right! you mean GOVERNMENT APPROVED, nutritionally "appropriate" meals. There will be two sets of "approved" meals. One set for we the little people, and for the "elitist" types, they will still be chowing down on regular food. feed themselves customized, nutritionally-appropriate meals synthesized one layer at a time, from cartridges of powder and oils they buy at the corner grocery store.
There are 595 politicians, a president, VP, and countless drones who's brains could use a little stimulus to get their heads out of their as*.
Should say that 97% of climate scientist agree climate change, global warming is NOT man made. About the only reason you hear this garbage is because those same 97% are nothing more than paid idiots, who's grants, funding, research are dependent on government money, so they will back the government(s) so they can keep their lazy a** cushy jobs. In the 70's we worried about a new ice age, then when owlgore came along, it was global warming and we had to drastically curb our lifestyle to prevent the world from burning up (even though owlgore lives in a house and uses the energy for ONE house, that would take a city block to use up, flies around in a private jet, uses limo after limo in a car detail, leaving engines running all the time). Now, it's been proven that the earth really isn't warming up, and hasn't been for about 10 years or so, which, just happens to parallel the solar cycles, #11 which we are currently in. In other words, as the sun output increases or decreases, over time, our planet heats up or cools off accordingly. Also, the "man made" part of it is just another way for the atheists to say humans are totally responsible on earth for everything, and not the Lord, who designed and created the heavens and the earth.
Ok, I admit it, I'm an old fart (53). Grew up with the "classic" version of ST, seen them all, pretty much have them all memorized. When Next Gen came out, watched it, for the most part enjoyed it. DS9, watched it, didn't really care for it. Voyager, watched 1 season, didn't care for it. Enterprise, watched it, LOVED it, but networks....you know how they are. I've seen all the movies, including the reboot in 09. As for the new one, yes, I'll see it. Not cause I'm devoted to one version or the other, but because it's an action movie, it's summer, and it takes your mind off the "real" world, if only for a couple hours.
The hipsters will be lined up for blocks to buy it in a bottle....
10-50 years of data is a blink of an eye in the history of the world. Of course, these lamebrain idiots never take into account the LIQUID core of the earth, shifting plates, geomagnetic output from the sun....nope, it's all MAN's fault!
I remember watergate very well...was 14 years old. That summer, you couldn't flip a channel (we only had four tv channels then) without wall to wall 24/7 coverage of the watergate hearings. NOTHING was on but that it seemed. The newspapers, tv, radio stations were all slamming the cover ups, lies, burglary of the watergate issue. Not one person died as a result. Juxtapose that with today, Benghazi, 4 people died, there are lies & cover ups all over the place, the IRS was being used as a 600 pound gorilla to intimidate people, and the press has been focused on the stupid lady that stabbed her boyfriend/husband 27 times, and those 3 missing women who were held for 10 years. Where's the 24/7 wall to wall coverage? Where are the calls for resigning over lies? Whispers of impeachment? Well, has something to do with the majority of the media being a bunch of in the tank liberals who will throw anyone under the bus to protect the "image" of the hope & change guy. They will call this a political witch hunt, GOP grandstanding etc. The press still doesn't get it. If the politicians in DC, both GOP & DEM get their way, the first amendment will go by the way side & will end up with the media, who are almost doing it anyway, being nothing more than a propaganda machine for the government.
with the on die regulator, won't that area of the chip be a tad warmer than the rest of the chip, or will the heat be a moot point?
Same with the smartphone/tablet business. Why offer upgrades to the baseline equipment, when you can force them into a NEW MODEL.
Instead of supplying the device & paying the bill, they pay 1/2 of the phone bill (added to the paycheck), and let you use whatever device you want. The wi-fi in the office is on a different network, so to stay off the corporate network. Unless you opt for LTE and a huge data block, 1/2 of the average phone bill for using your device at work isn't that bad. Most would have a smartphone anyway, this just knocks the costs down a bit, and not have to carry 2 devices. One personal & one for work.
Same here. A mechanical safety is way more reliable than an electronic one. Plus, not to be a tin-foil hat nut, but who's to say there won't be some government issued "chip" that, coupled with all the GPS, cameras, wi-fi etc, that if the idiots at the government wanted to, could push a button and make them all go dead. But...but...a hardware safety could fail too. Yeah, but not as likely as a new fangled software safety. The hardware safety on the M1911 has been around since...ummmm...1911. Don't hear a lot of complaints about that one.
CowboyRobot writes "Despite the headlines, the big denial of service attack may not have slowed the Internet after all. The argument against the original claim include the fact that reports of Internet users seeing slowdowns came not from service providers, but the DDoS mitigation service CloudFlare, which signed up Spamhaus as a customer last week. Also, multiple service providers and Internet watchers have now publicly stated that while the DDoS attacks against Spamhaus could theoretically have led to slowdowns, they've seen no evidence that this occurred for general Internet users. And while some users may have noticed a slowdown, the undersea cable cuts discovered by Egyptian sailors had more of an impact than the DDoS."
SternisheFan points out that there is a great new panorama made from shots from the Curiosity Rover. "Sweep your gaze around Gale Crater on Mars, where NASA's Curiosity rover is currently exploring, with this 4-billion-pixel panorama stitched together from 295 images. ...The entire image stretches 90,000 by 45,000 pixels and uses pictures taken by the rover's two MastCams. The best way to enjoy it is to go into fullscreen mode and slowly soak up the scenery — from the distant high edges of the crater to the enormous and looming Mount Sharp, the rover's eventual destination."
