1.1kWh per day != 1100 W per day. You can't just cut off that pesky "hours" part of the unit.
If you're classifying anything greater than 5 ounces as a brick, then you're probably taking a huge risk by exerting whatever force is necessary to get your words onto my screen, whether that's typing or moving your jaw for a speech-to-text program.
Sounds like you'd be better off if the companies would ditch the "thinner is better" idiocy and put some decently hefty batteries in the things. My LG G2x gets a week of standby time with the extended battery I bought, and I will never purchase a device without an easily replaceable battery (as in just under the back cover, so all I have to do is get a bigger battery and fatter cover). I don't give a damn about wireless charging if the charge won't last more than a day in the first place.
If you have no idea what the numbers mean, then perhaps you should leave analysis of the numbers to someone with the requisite basic computer hardware knowledge. This isn't challenging stuff. Perhaps you'd be best just leaving the computer alone completely. Really, what are you doing on the internet?
Dude, ever heard of FDIC?
What idiot stores their cash in somebody else's wallet with no guarantee of that somebody's legitimacy and no insurance? Maybe these morons will have finally learned their lesson, and will keep their cash in their own wallets in their own pockets.
In the first phase, which lasts 1.5 years, hard drives have an annual failure rate of 5.1%. For the next 1.5 years, the annual failure rate drops to 1.4%. After three years, the failure rate explodes to 11.8% per year. In short, this means that around 92% of drives survive the first 18 months, and almost all of those (90%) then go on to reach three years.
Extrapolating from these figures, just under 80% of all hard drives will survive to their fourth anniversary.
1.00 (total) -
So, if it is fails to be best in one case, it is therefore suboptimal in all other cases? Guess we should un-launch all the satellites since a few of them were damaged on the ground, and tell the Mars rover to power down, since other Mars missions have had problems.
Can you read?
It’s interesting that the code built with the g++ compiler performed the best in most cases, although the clang compiler proved to be the fastest in terms of compilation time.
Just in case you didn't get that: They did benchmark the resulting binaries, and g++ made the best ones.
I prefer my 2560x1600 screens in 10" form factor. 27"+ needs to be at least 3840x2160.
The recent blog post
by Willard Foxton is an amazing insight into the world of the non-programming mind.
He goes on to say:
"Coding is a niche, mechanical skill, a bit like plumbing or car repair."
So coding is a mechanical skill — I guess he must be thinking of copy typing.
"As a subject, it only appeals to a limited set of people – the aforementioned dull weirdos. There’s a reason most startup co-founders are “the charming ideas guy” paired with “the tech genius”. It’s because if you leave the tech genius on his own he’ll start muttering to himself."
Why is it I feel a bout of muttering coming on?
"If a school subject is to be taught to everyone, it needs to have a vital application in everyday life – and that’s just not true of coding."
Of course it all depends on what you mean by "vital application".
The article is reactionary and designed to get people annoyed and posting comments — just over 600 at the moment- but what is worrying is that the viewpoint will ring true with anyone dumb enough not to be able to see the bigger picture. The same attitude extends not just to programming but to all STEM subjects. The next step in the argument is — why teach physics, chemistry, biology and math (as distinct from arithmetic) to any but exceptionally dumb weirdos."
