Comment Arm Cluster (Score 1) 42

I'm surprised no one is making an arm cluster solution based on cheap $30 modules. The modules only need a single fast IO interface that can fit into a backpane. This would allow computer hobbyists to build a cluster over time, they can start with a few modules and work their way up as they get more money.

the old model is dual core, also you can get these phones with local importer warranty if you don't mind paying an extra $50. Also this comes pre-rooted and there are alternate roms for it now. The good news is you can buy the phone "now" for around $200 and it comes with two batteries and a cover.

Only idiots with to much money and no internet skills pay more than $400 for a so called high end phone. One of the guys at work recently purchased a 5.7" quad core IPS screen mobile from china for a little over $300 (Model# N7300, google it). I was thinking, naaw it will be a heap of crap, well it arrived and worked and not only that "it was pre-rooted". It played 720p mkv movies with no issues and has a dual sim and a SDCARD slot.

or the ISP's can copy what Google did in German, block all copyright material then watch the perpetrators of the legal action have a nervous break down when they realise they have just blown their own foot of with a 22mm canon. Media needs exposure to survive, even illegal downloaders assist in sales (most downloaders are also their biggest $$ customers). So when the media reps lose a major exposure channel trust me they start to hurt especially when they realise their advertising budget is now 5x higher to get the same income.
