If Sony knows, then North Korea will be the first to know!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Put an i7 in there and your battery will be a hot cake...!
And it's been true ever since. So, yeah.
There's no guarantee that yeast will behave in microgravity the same way they do at 1g. Microgravity has an interesting way of affecting protein expression. My guess is that brewing in space won't be very effective. Some people have enough trouble doing it on terra firma.
Also, backup hydration? And "medical source?" Glad we don't let 11-yr olds do important things...!
The sell "entry-level" or "low-cost" smartphones in developing markets like Africa or Asia. Look on eBay for such phones.
I didn't jump on this fast enough--is there a way to get a fully functional copy now?
Sounds pretty ground-breaking. Six second from the recommended 120 seconds--and how many of us do that?--is a lot of time saved, and if the device cleans our teeth better than we normally do (needs verification as noted above), that's a net win there too. Given the market for teeth whiteners and electric toothbrushes, there's certainly a social premium placed on attractive teeth, not to mention the very important health benefits of consistent dental care.
This guy has 'em. There are other ways to sacrifice for worthy principles than warfare.
Should documents then start including snapshots of the site (Wayback Machine-style) in document appendices? It's more work, sure, but it seems to be an obvious solution.
Make it a class action suit. Demand a list of everyone to whom Dovden has ever sent a threatening letter.
I wonder if the release of Dr. King's works to the world and substantial realization of social justice in America will coincide. Maybe the continued familial infighting will prolong both of those events.
You and I have very different ideas of what "protestantism" means. Sorry the "protestants" in your personal experience are all such jerks.
Yikes--same format movie played on both laptops = differing battery lives? Definitely sounds like an OS power bug (or several), unless the movie formats differed (lower vs. higher qual). And if not that, the minute possibility remains that someone in the processor architecture team made a tradeoff in the graphics hardware that didn't work as intended.
Going from 7 hrs active to 4 hrs idle is depressing
Most modern lithium batteries should *not* be cycled or discharged "fully"--such a practice degrades the battery capacity quite rapidly. I think the practice of fully discharging the battery comes from the NiMH-type rechargeable AA(A) batteries.
Yeah, sometimes people recommend fully discharging a lithium battery during operation so that the monitoring software can recalibrate it's battery power meter to adjust for the decline in total capacity, but I'm not sure it's worth it.
As mentioned earlier, temperature is a big factor as well. Maybe Haswell will save the day...
