Most of the PC's I've serviced were regular towers, with standard-sized PSU's. Most of the SFF stuff is either with hobbyist or corporate machines. It's pretty sad when a $1500+ Dell Studio PC comes with RAID, a powerful CPU, tons of RAM, and... (IMHO) a crappy, under-powered low-quality PSU.
Given the cheap PSU's I've seen in a lot of boxes (and the rate of failure), I'd say in many cases that it's a contest between the drives and the PSU, especially when you get to areas with flakey power.
However, while some machines may survive, there's still a certain mortality to the machines themselves. As they die and need replacement, newer machines will presumably be bought.
While CPU power may not be a compelling argument for an upgrade, I can still see people buying bigger storage (or possibly faster storage as SSD's come down in price).
Mobile devices have a market. They're getting faster regularly and becoming more useful as they do. Desktops still increase in speed, but not at the same rate. Until the mobile market stabilizes somewhat, there will be trade-offs between the two.
The good news is that these will only cost $70.
The bad news is that the lenses are used up after 2 months, and cost $65 to replace.
you simply have to accept that a zombie movie by definition isn't going to exhibit high levels of logic and reality
You might think that, but in all honesty it seems a fairly substantial amount of people don't exhibit a high level or logic in crisis or high-stress situations. Hell, it's winter - hardly a crisis - here and based on the way some people drive you'd think it was summer on the Autobann: speeding, passing across solid yellow, passing at high-speed in the slow lane, passing at high speed off the curb, etc. It's nuts.
Have a look at how people act on Black Friday in order to score $25 off a POS television. Look at the people buying food with stamps and chatting on the newest iPhone.
Assuming logical and rational thinking from a large portion of the human populace is going to be a losing proposal. In fact, the best way to survive may be to assume that the majority of people are going to descend into a dumb panic and make terrible decisions that could get you - or them - killed.
Except the sociopaths, those in power (police etc) and especially those who are both.
NO? Then how about we stick to news (for nerds) and not unfounded speculations from random blogs.
Shut yo' mouth. The Dukes of Hazzard was poignant social commentary on our political system, and way ahead of its time. The symbolism of Boss Hogg, in his white suit is... oh, I can't do it. I just can't do it. LOL, Daisy Duke. Fuck yeah.
Hey, I'm all for any entertainment that showed dat ass on Catherine Bach in her prime. I just find irony in 'Roscoe P. Coltrane' complaining about banal entertainment.
They're semi-politely called abos, but for maximum affront the term boongs is preferred.
Just because I learn something new every day doesn't mean I learn anything of value.
And yet another slashdot article on TV where half of the comments are reminiscent of a 13 year old Onion article. We get it; you're a hipster dipshit. Go tell someone who cares.
Because some niggers will lose their 4:3 aspect ratio.
I thought you Aussie Stormfronters called them abos?
Not only that, but with digital TV, they know what you watch and when. With analog TV, they don't. Knowning who watches what and when is a very, VERY valuable business model - just ask Google...
Put down the crack pipe for a second and explain how 'they' can track an OTA digital signal?
For those who don't know... digital tv is this thing that carries the same mindless, retarded, idiotic, uninteresting programs as analog tv, only it's digital.
Like The Dukes of Hazzard?
New Zealand's Analog TV has just been turned off
Guess the sheep are pulling overtime now.
What's that? New York has more than 20% of the nation's population? So what? You mean that Amazon might prefer to collect and pay the taxes, rather than lose ~20% of their business? Imagine that . . .
You might want to check your numbers. New York has just over 6% of the US population.
Maybe he was measuring by USI levels instead of raw population?
