>Anecdote is not the singular of data. When aggregate studies show that more money is to be made developing for iOS
Yet neither you nor the OP provided any supporting evidence for your assertions.
Assertions are not the singular of data either.
Evidence suggests otherwise. Android vs iOS Game Myths
NYC and other big cities are really big because there's a lot of people there. And there's a lot of people there because a lot of people want to live there, despite the high cost of living. Small places are small because they have few people; few people want to live there despite the low rents and open spaces.
And while "people" includes developers and engineers of course, it also includes startup founders. People will start new companies where they already live, or where they want to live. Which, for the majority of people, tend to be large cities. Especially if they have an education, already live in a large city (for attending university, for instance) or have any kind of special interests or lifestyle, or belong to some minority demographic that is better served in a large, diverse community than in a small, homogenous one.
So the "why" may have nothing to do with the relative cost of rent, network effect oar anything else. It may simply be because the founders want to live there, and enjoy mingling with like-minded people.
I wouldn't put it past Verizon to do that but one of my colo's peers primarily with Cogent and Cogent blows up internet connectivity from that colo all the time, an issue I just don't have in my other colo. Honestly I don't think Cogent has the moral authority to be able to assert anything.
Video and podcasts are difficult to follow if you have bad hearing, if it's not in your first language, or if you're in an environment that makes it hard to hear clearly.
I've basically given up altogether on video presentations like this one for such reasons. If it's not important enough for you to provide a transcript, it's not worth my time to try to puzzle out what you are trying to say.
Here's a preliminary "best practice" guide: http://www.prace-project.eu/Best-Practice-Guide-Intel-Xeon-Phi-HTML?lang=en
Seems OpenMP and openMPI are both available, so typical hybrid systems should at least run out of the box, though you'll of course need a fair bit of tuning to make full use of the thing. It should be less work than adapting a system for running on a GPU though.
In the case of the XBox, they are required for access to the platform at all.
A massive automated dragnet reiles on most data being very easy to access (whether technically or through bulk warrants). Add only moderate security to your data, and suddenly it won't be accessible in that way by default anymore. It has to be individually targeted in some manner, and that takes time and manpower that is always in short supply. So that won't happen unless there's a specific reason to target that data.
The site says it's in the Ubuntu repos, but it's not there when I look. Is it submitted and just not propagated yet, or is there a PPA I need to enable?
It's not bandwidth, it's volume.
I get feeds from a pile or research journals in my field. A typical day I can have 150 new items in the feed, perhaps 2-3 of which are actually of interest to me at the time. With a feed reader I can leaf through and pick out the few interesting ones in ten minutes. If I had to go to the site of each journal I'd spend half my morning doing the same.
Or say you're following tech sites such as Verge, Ars Technical and so on. Much faster to flip through all their new items and visit the ones that interest you than having to visit each site individually.
Finally, feeds are good for anything that updates irregularly. Since it's in your feed you can simply ignore it, and yet never risk missing an update. "XKCD What If", "WTF Evolution" and "Research In Progress" come to mind as perfect for this.
Exactly what I use too. Gave me a push to finally set up a home server of my own.
By the way, anyone know how filters are supposed to work in tt-rss? The documentation is rather lacking.
Plenty of land is available and inexpensive. Most of Japan is uninhabited. It's the land in _cities_ that is hugely expensive.
And any place will cost a fortune for visitors to visit.
