Can we stick to "News for nerds", please?
2) asm.js is bad because I say so.
3) I hate Mozilla.
Number of factual statements about asm.js or its problems: Zero.
It does. That is why dark matter is the leading theory at the moment. It is the simplest one, with the least additional elements, that can actually explain all available observations.
There are plenty of simpler theories that can't, though, if you prefer things that are known to be wrong.
It is technically possible but practically impossible, for two reasons: One, it is very hard to get even backwards-compatible extensions approved for addition to PNG. See the failure of APNG for an example. Two, such a change would not really be backwards-compatible, and the files would be named "png" but would not actually open in any current PNG reader. There would thus be very little advantage of adding this to PNG rather than creating a new format.
PNG is quite old and tired at this point. Both BPG and other newly proposed formats such as WebP have lossless modes which easily beat PNG at compression.
WebP has lossy and lossless modes, just to clarify, and is actually a good candidate to replace JPEG, PNG and even GIF, as it also has animation.
Did you actually try doing that? Because IIS is doing quite well on that score, last I checked.
That's clearly a fallacy -- the "effectiveness" argument requires you to buy into the false dilemma that the only way to get potentially live saving information is by torturing prisoners. Certainly the CIA has dug up plenty of information before and since that did not require torture.
Even if torturing prisoners was "effective," who cares? If something is immoral, good results will never make it moral.
And it's far better to make the code visible to all then to wait for the exploit to be found in the usual ways while everyone was in the dark about it.
That is quite a strong claim to make without providing evidence to back it up.
Unless you're advocating a new form of Creationism that I'm not familiar with, the universe wasn't built from human labor. Software, on the other hand, is -- and that's why it costs money to make.
Free software isn't free to make. There's a reason it's free as in libre but not necessarily free as in gratis.
Do cite your examples, then, and argue why they are equivalent.
If your wife is making more noise than the computer, spending money on computer parts won't solve the noise issue.
Intelligence, as a very baseline requirements, should be adaptable.
Pretty much every single AI implementation is designed specifically for a given task. It can not adapt itself, without outside help, to a problem outside its initial scope.
That is not intelligence.
Does it come with dual hidden blades?
