Anyway, it is good science (it is testable and verifiable) but bad journalism.
Unless it can be reproduced or its mechanism explained, it is nothing but fuel to add to the "communication radiation exposure is bad" hysteria.
But there was no victim in the case â" all of the works were staged with willing actresses and a combination of fake blood, latex and silicone to create life-like, horrific images.
Anyone remember(...) Napster (...)?
I was writing a document in Word this morning, and after about an hour of unsaved work, Word went into an infinite loop that made the application completely frozen. So, having listened to your talks too many times, I got my debugger, paused the program, changed the program counter to a point a few instructions past the end of the loop, and let it keep running from there. Word went back to working as if nothing had ever happened. I was able to finish my document, save it, and close Word without problems.
If that's a real use case scenario, thing must be really different in MIT than they are in the real world. Users, even with a technical background don't have a clue about what an infinite loops looks like, let alone open a debug and move out of it.
If that's the target audience, not having the overhead of the automatic detection for the other 99% and letting the tech savy fend for themselves with the debugger. Also, the scope is too limited.
As the application executes, Jolt compares the current state with the state from the previous iteration. If the states are equal, Jolt has detected an innite loop.
As the paper itself says, it doesn't "detect loops due to recursion or unstructured control ". It could probably be fooled by some busy waiting loop.
Doesn't seem like a serious paper, or something that solves a serious problem.
I love my iphone, but I miss being able to just reach into my pocket and dial a call, or skip a song/rewind, etc. Having to pull my phone out every time I want to do anything other than change the volume is damned annoying.
If you are using the default iPhone earbuds, you can do all that using the middle button (the one between the up and down volume buttons):
One click to play/pause, two clicks to skip to next, three clicks to go back to previous, click and hold to activate Voice Control (where you can make calls, play albums, playlists, etc.).
That is a life saver feature that should be more publicized, took me a while to figure them out.
how he had someone else stand in line for him Saturday to pick up his iPad
First Murdock displays his love for it, now the CEO of Verizon not only says he wanted one, but send one of his minions to pick it up for him. If someone were trying to paint the iPad in a bad light, couldn't get it better than this.
Now what, someone using the iPad to kick puppies and stomp kittens?
