These are the same people who make tanks and anti-tank missiles. They make airplanes and surface-to-air missiles. They put body armor on their soldiers and hand them guns to shoot other soldiers with.
They know the power of Big Data, so they both try to use it to their advantage and try to mitigate the advantage it would give to their foes.
You can't say global release is a flawed model just by the piracy numbers. The key is the financials. If AMC can get more money from international rebroadcasters by offering it to them on a shorter timeframe, then global release has some merit.
And it is possible that the content is considered to be more valuable on the shorter timeframe, because the airers prefer their content be more "fresh".
Most of the conflict between "personal" and "business" comes when a service is provisioned for a relatively light load (residential) and then someone runs a business on it. The service just isn't designed to carry that much traffic, that incurs additional expenses which aren't within the residential fee structure.
If the service is metered, as you link to here, then they don't care how much traffic you run, they'll get paid more if you run a server and that'll provide the revenue needed to provision the line up for the higher traffic.
If American ISP service was metered, there wouldn't be much of an issue either. If you use it like a business, you'd pay like a business.
Hear me out. Snowden said he could wiretap you with just your email address.
This doesn't amount to that. All this is is a large database. All the data they get they put into a database. That's how they use "big data".
But you can only search for what's in there.
What will be in there is metadata from the metadata drag net (pen register/trap and trace). This includes email from/to, etc, but not the content. It also includes phone call from and to numbers but not the content, although Snowden said email, so I guess he wasn't talking about that.
Also in there will be the content of communications which were captured previously. This is what amounts to an actual wiretap. But they cannot capture these communications between Americans with a drag net, they have to get individual warrants (presumably secret FISA warrants).
So, if you gave your email to Snowden, he could look up everything which is in there, but unless you were already wiretapped, he wouldn't find any wiretap info. If you are American, he cannot put on a wiretap just by you supplying your email address.
So the original denials were correct. Snowden did overstate what he could do. He may not have been limited enough in what he could do, but this was not one of the things he could do.
Not at that price at least.
If people are buying them because they're novel and start talk then they simply will become more common until they aren't novel and don't start talk.
There could be room for a 2nd package.
But I didn't know about the E5 V2. Maybe you're right and Apple is using that. E5-V2 has 4 DDR3 memory channels, Apple would only have to put two DIMMs on a memory channel to have 8 DIMM slots. They have two DIMMs on a memory channel in the current MacPro.
But I suppose it's more likely Apple is going to just stick with 4 DIMM slots, given that memory per DIMM availability probably has at least doubled since Apple selected 8 DIMM slots for the last Mac Pro (2010? 2008?).
In the one CPU config. That is, one CPU socket package, 6 or 8 cores. If you got the two CPU socket version with 12 cores, you got 8 RAM slots.
The model pictured is one with a single CPU socket and has 4 DIMM slots. It's quite possible that the two CPU socket version of this Mac Pro will have 8 RAM slots also.
I checked, there is no 12 core version of Xeon E5, so presumably to get the 12 cores on this one will use two packages as the last one did.
I don't have any problems putting stuff next to cylinders. I have a coffee cup on my desk, it isn't causing any untoward issues.
This thing has no HDDs. No amount of flash would be enough for video editors, and not even 4 internal HDDs would either. So you will use a Thunderbolt external HDD or RAID array. I just hope those get somewhat cheaper soon.
You cannot add it later. You have to configure to order.
The Air had 2 or 4GB CTO (configure to order) 2 years ago, 4 or 8GB CTO this year and I think last year was 4GB or 8GB CTO also.
Back when credit cards were still charge cards too. When revolving credit cards (where you don't have to pay each money) changed their names to credit cards (credit is a positive, charge is a negative), AMEX kept the charge card description.
AMEX reminded me of this twice when I didn't pay in full at the end of the month. They said they didn't work that way and I wouldn't be able to charge anything until I paid it off. I replied that I didn't mind because I only used it on corporate trips and I didn't have another one for months, by which point the company would have reimbursed me and I would pay AMEX.
I was very much against them, in fact swearing I would smash my passport's smart chip when I got a new passport that had one.
But having read it with my phone, I'm impressed. You need key data from the printed page to make the NFC work and as you mention, the passports are unreadable when closed.
I think it's really well done. I'm a bit unsure quite what it's good for since it is slower than swiping it, I can only figure it was done just because putting that much info in a barcode was infeasible.
Now let me submit my pic as a link to a PNG or whatever instead of printing out a picture, having them scan it back in and turn it into a JPEG2000.
Happiness is a positive cash flow.
