Assume we are stacking pancakes with largest at the bottom.
To me, assuming that you consider "Find the largest unsorted pancake" to be O(N), the algorithm is O(N^2). Number of flips is 2N. Where's my turing award?
So I must be missing something... Is one not able to find the largest unsorted pancake easily? Perhaps you are only able to look at the size of the topmost pancake. The article was unclear.
LTE should work much better, and it will align with the rest of the industry.
Got a desert? Irrigate it and it's much more valuable.
Got a large land mass? Add transportation infrastructure and people can get around easier.
Computing is a new environment that is an extraordinarily awesome environment to be engineered in.
Finance is another complex environment that can be made more valuable with engineering. If the tech companies are really hurting for the smart folks, they'll start paying competitively.
Friends don't tell friends not to go into finance if they think it's in their best interest. It seems like interesting, challenging, profitable work. I don't see why that's wrong.
Seriously, Slashdot? This is news?
And now ARM is going after high clock rates with deep pipelines. They'll end up with microarchitectures that are are more or less equivalent to x86 ones. Oh, and they're well behind the game when it comes to important architecture features like 64 bit. A 32 bit "server" architecture is a laughable concept.
The real thing that ARM has that x86 doesn't? You can license their core and put it in your SoC, where all the important stuff actually lives.
We see this same ARM article every few weeks. It's the same bull every time. I'm starting to expect that tomorrow I'll see slashdot / slashvertisement articles that "nature's harmonic simultaneous 4-day time cube" has been proven.
Perhaps it's yet another case of Academia "discovering" what someone in industry figured out a long time ago...
Now if it's a easy to fabricate buck converter, it might be interesting... we have to have those off-die. But I think fabricating those capacitors and inductors isn't easy.
AM Radio could interfere with aircraft beacons, since they're right next to each other!
Please. We've been allocating spectrum for things for a long time. Interference can be monitored and controlled. Do you really think that mobile telephone companies would put up with broadcasters puking all over their spectrum? Or vice versa? Or either putting up with amateur radio interference?
Or, perhaps worst of all, do you think the Hams would put up with someone interfering with their spectrum? They can triangulate secret government projects accidentally using their shortwave spectrum.
Yes, interference happens from all sorts of places. You'll likely find that devices in your adjacent spectrum are less likely to interfere than other sources of interference.
They should charge them with manufacturing child pornography.
If you didn't have to work so hard, you'd have more time to be depressed.
