Sorry, but if he's living today in a western society and decided to procreate SEVEN times, he is definitely not well educated. He may belong to some cult or just is ignorant about how to use a condom, but either way it does not suggest an educated person.
the old CRTs were convex, reflecting light from all over the place (hence glare). This new fad is about concave displays, which have far less glare than even the flat ones.
I've seen some posts above mentioning the curved Galaxy and how bad the glare is in the pictures; the posters must have been drunk or trolling, because the pictures clearly show how little glare there is.
The article is laughable in so many ways. From a technical p.o.v. though, the comparison with the Three Gorges Dam is plain idiotic.
That dam is huge because of the enormous shearing forces at the base. On the other hand, a 99% submerged dam will feel mostly tidal forces, which are many orders of magnitude lower. Heck, it would be exposed to less stress than a 50' normal dam.
Bloody English! Anyway, shame on the reporter using a LoC kind of unit instead of proper engineering.
nope, tens of picoseconds. I'm assuming trillion=10^12.
I too have been a Sprint customer for 12 years, then switched to Ting this spring and am very happy with the price and customer service. Brought my phones from Sprint without a hiccup.
Regarding some retarded comments regarding CDMA: if you use a cell phone for voice services too, the audio quality on CDMA is still much higher than the GSM networks (ATT etc).
There is a recent spec, USB Power Delivery, which will at last bring order to the mess and has multiple profiles like 10 watts, 36 watts, 60 watts, and 100 watts though that latter seems insane.
If you think that the USB Power Delivery spec is anything but a pile of spaghetti hardware, you have not read or worked with it. To support all these power levels you first need a handshaking procedure for the host and slave to agree what are both capable of, then oversized DC/DC converters at both ends. Overall, that's much more expensive to implement than more sane alternatives.
of the old, perhaps apocryphal story, about the idiot who, when told that his floppy disk should be "cleaned", got a cotton pad and alcohol and started wiping the disk surface. Looks like he got promoted...
Oh, the NSA reference is patently stupid. Eavesdropping a *private* conversation is completely different from taking snapshots of cars/license plates, which is *public* information.
I, as a private citizen, can use my dashcam to record whatever happens in front of my car while I'm driving on public roads, including your license plate. However, I do not have the right to intercept your phone conversation. Can you now see how the two situations are different?
The article is mildly entertaining (especially for the awk bits), but the ending is plain stupid, i.e. flat and inane beyond belief
I don't think that a sane person would explain the apparent improvement of newish cars reliability by the increasing number of built-in programmable gadgets with their millions of code lines. If anything, there is an optimum beyond which the cars will start failing in new and spectacular ways...
Uninformed opinion. Mammals are at least as old as dinosaurs and some findings indicate that they're even older! Thank $DEITY for the yucatan meteorite!
... because they don't have access to the advanced process technology that Intel does
That's a wrong way to put it. It's their own process, they paid for it, that's why they have access to it.
Intel's process is at least two generations ahead of everybody else because they understood long time ago that technology alone can crush the competition and decided to pour an insane amount of money into creating the said forefront technology.
What did AMD do? Become a fabless chip maker, at the mercy of the likes of TSMC or GF...
unfortunately, the Contour has very, very crappy low-light performance. Oh, and it does not work when charging, which means that you have to rely on its battery. Not a dashcam by any means.
At a BMI of 15.6, you're definitely NOT the epitome of a healthy human. Maybe you meant 128kg instead?
*You* are either completely off or are talking about something totally different; the subject is VR for CPUs.
In a buck converter, the inductor's value is computed from the desired current ripple, which usually is a fraction of the TDC value. Although a 100nH inductor is a little extreme for 300kHz switching when vout is about 1V, its certainly doable; you'll get high inductor ripple, crappy efficiency but also fast transient response and such inductor is cheap.
The 100uH inductor at 300kHz is appropriate for a high-voltage converter, with an output voltage of e.g. 400V and requiring very small ripple.
