You'll have to pry the steering wheel out of my cold, dead hands
Why would I do that when I can have the car accident investigators and the medical examiner do that for you?
sure you can overwhelm the cache but in real world use that is not going to be an issue
L.A. Noire has a single file that's over 5GB in size. The full game is 12GB in size.
That's just one application. I multitask. 8GB of cache just doesn't cut it.
I just bought a new desktop and opted for SRT rather than the hybrids.
OS drive: High performance (so quite expensive) dedicated SSD
Data drive: 2TB 7200rpm with a rather cheaper 60GB SSD as a cache
NAS : Purely spindle, it's there for infrequently accessed files and backup
The biggest benefit over the hybrid is that 60GB not 8GB. If I import 10GB of photos from my camera I don't want them getting flushed off the cache. If I want to play a 15GB install-size game I don't want to lose the benefits of caching. Right now I can use Lightroom and play the game at the same time.
Third, blame China. Apple is respecting the laws of a nation. You don't like those laws - fine - but it's not Apple's fault for respecting those laws.
One word: Dehomag.
Did they even consider the consequences of generating 400 kilos of dead stuff an hour?
400 kg of biomass per hour to incinerate for energy generation or to turn into hydrocarbons to make the process self-sustaining?
And you think that trying to reject the null hypothesis in case of traditional journals is not worth the time? Given the fact that they apparently checked for the quality of the rejection letters, I think it would be worth their while to try.
Also, there's at least one high-quality open access journal that will reliably reject all your bad papers.
