This was certainly not the case on PC's. You began to see advantages as early as 1G because that is when some memory had to be moved away from permanently mapped memory on 32-bit. You ended up with a less than 200MB high memory area which was difficult to use effectively and you had to pay the PAE overhead to get it. Best option was to run a non-PAE kernel and forget about that last bit of memory (or run a custom memory split, if you like compiling your own kernel).
2GB was more or less ok and 3GB was a bit of a sweet spot (but who has that?). 4GB brought the extra pain of having to deal with 32-bit devices and DMA32 memory, or you did the sane thing and just gave up on a few hundred MB again to avoid bounce buffers. To be fair, DMA32 plagues 64-bit Linux as well, but it should not be much of an issue on modern hardware anymore.
Anyway, Android uses a 1GB/3GB memory split, so 1GB is still an unfortunate amount of memory, and all current Android devices are 32-bit.
Russia doesn't have the logistics to go to conventional war with EU. There is no way it could get its supply lines running to handle that kind of campaign. Even if they did gain air superiority, there are too many anti-air systems in the EU to allow them air supremacy, and without air supremacy the campaign would eventually grind to a halt. Hopefully such all-out conflicts are a thing of the past.
The EU's problem is that it has practically no force projection capability itself. France could handle Mali, but that is approximately the limit. Even an EU where everyone agreed for once would not be able to do anything useful about Syria. Libya showed how dependent the EU is on the US; EU ran out of bombs in no time at all and the operations would be impossible without the US providing information from e.g. satellites and AWACS.
Well on the upside someone actually had to hack their way in. In at least one other country, the telecoms incumbent was sold off, and the national ID registry was outsourced to an American company. When the NSA wants access to either, they will not have to be nearly as crude about it.
Oh, hey, look at that! Shooting at the Washington Navy Yard this morning. Three or four victims in critical condition, including a DC cop!
A gun free building, inside a gun free zone, inside a gun free city. Ironically enough, the tard quoted above can only think "if only we could make a gun free state or a gun free nation this wouldn't happen!"
More of a failing strategy won't create a succeeding strategy.
Well, obviously, humans are easier to chew.
Came for the Strangelove reference; left satisfied.
Remember when Newt Gingrich was so roundly ridiculed for wanting to buy laptops for schoolkids?
I think he earned greater ridicule for his plan to have children earn their free lunch by sweeping and mopping the schools.
I can see there's a specialised need for multi-channel recording but can't understand how there can be a domestic need to record more than one at a time - are there people who honestly enjoy so much of the current programming that there's things on more than one channel for any time slot that they're interested in?
The few shows in which one is interested are always scheduled against each other.
It must be a car analogy or as close as it is possible to get to one.
Monster truck is closer than what you're talking about.
and if you don't want to mention it here, you should be able to figure out how to reach me at coastalnet.com, or PM me at TCF if you hang out there.
What exactly was wrong with that S3, was it the 648 or the 652, and was it lifetimed?
If the realistic alternatives are: Microsoft buys Nokia and Nokia dies they pick Microsoft.
Don't underestimate the ability of bureaucrats and others in power to bite off their noses to spite their faces.
we used to run around the school yard with wood sticks and make pew pew pew at schoolmates and - oh god -.even towards teachers.
Obviously we had to turn all out to be serial psychotic killers that shot everyone out our schools.
Worse than that: you became a
