Imagine if we spent that money and the Iraq War money on building wind turbines and solar panels, and battery research. We'd probably be at 100% renewables. Neocons are insane little monkeys who can only think about war.
The typical conservative response is that we're protecting the world. How that translates to wasting truly historic amounts of money- a degree of expenditure never seen before in human history- on utterly useless pork projects for the military... well that's beyond them.
Protection from who? Who would dare attack a nuclear capable country? Do you always tell yourself we're protecting the world to make yourself feel better about the US spending almost a trillion dollars a year on our military?
This strikes me as just more government corruption and corporate welfare. I can't imagine this makes financial sense. When they're taking down nuclear reactors across Japan you'd think they would want to spend this money on wind turbines or solar plants.
So what's the limitation? The CPU?
I installed a game on a temporary "RAM drive" after I bought 16 GB of it a few years ago. Load times of Deus Ex HR didn't change at all from my SATA SSD. Was really disappointed.
He's not a soldier in war.
Actually according to the New Yorker's Jony Ive profile, Apple requires that all its employees, engineers included, have an eye for design. They won't hire you if you're borderline autistic. And when a designer (one of Ive's team) walks into a meeting it's like a high priest has graced the peons with his presence. Everything at Apple is done with deference to form and design. For example, this is probably why the original Macbook Air (and now the new Macbook) had only one USB port, until widespread criticism led to them adding another.
What comes next? H.266? Is anyone working on it? Is it even possible?
Then buy a Samsung 850 Evo Pro. The 3D NAND is at 40 nm and is extremely long-lasting.
They really need to release a new "global" phone with support for like 30 LTE bands, like an iPhone. The current one only supports 2.
You mean "biased"?
Retooled to ripoff the MS Hololens you mean?
For what it's worth I also think the Metro look is incredibly ugly, and I suspect is a major reason why Windows Phone has utterly failed to succeed at any level.
I'm not the one claiming a multi thousand year culture is inferior and oppressive. You think pointing out that Americans have the arrogance to dismiss other societies as cesspools without knowing a god awful thing about those people, is somehow painting them as "inferior"?
What culture is yours, then, Marc? Because I'm American, born and raised here, but I've spent a lot of time travelling to different countries and living with people there. I've met a lot of different people from different societies with completely different value systems, some that I didn't agree with- but I learned to open my eyes and realize I couldn't be an arrogant douchebag and dismiss their way of life as "oppressive" and "violent" without trying to understand who they were and why they were.
