WOW! What stupid brain-dead comment. I don't hate AMD at all. I have used AMD products repeatedly over the years. This was a joke. It appears the SJW's have taken over the moderation system and the cry babies are coming out of the woodwork. I have even had numerous comments deleted in recent months despite this site claiming it never does. It's a sad, sad day for/.
AMD today announced they have hired several new software engineers. AMD's CTO stated they were very fortunate to acquire several talented individuals. Apparently they had recently completed a project with Volkswagen.
I should have been clearer in stating I know an equal number of EE's who are adept at a wide range of disciplines. I was pointing out there are those for whom transitioning to another skillset would be traumatic.
I know EE's who can design elaborate circuits in their sleep but could not assemble a simple JK flip-flop circuit from discrete components. Their brains are so higher function they struggle with simple ideas. It's kinda like asking a professional weightlifter to compete in a 440K. Both require athletic ability but one doesn't necessarily qualify you for the other.
Apple may not care about DRM one way or the other but they do care about people bypassing their cash generating MFi program and their proprietary lightning connector and using the "audio" jack as a data connection interface. I'm sure they're still trying to figure out how to make Square pay the fee.
You can thank Jeff Bezos for that. He had the app intentionally borked to not work on Android TV and I suspect it didn't help it functionality overall. There are workarounds but ultimately it's such a PITA I stopped trying.
I used HULU the first month it came out so I know how long it's been around. It's funny you mention Disney as a backer of HULU since Some of the best original content on Netflix are Disney properties (DareDevil, Jessica Jones, and soon The Punisher, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders). But the fact remains HULU is niche product (although 12 million subscribers is nothing to sneeze at) looking for that breakaway hit but the networks keep trying to get it using the old style pablum "we'll feed it to you when we're ready for you to have it" mentality. If I want that I'll get a Tablo/Channel Master DVR+ and an antenna.
The networks have been trying to get something to compete with Netflix for years and fortunately so far they have failed miserably. Amazon is doing well but they had to tie their service to their Prime subscription as an add-on to get the traction they now have. Even so I watch Netflix original shows 10 to 1 over Prime. If the RIAA/MPAA/Networks get a foothold you know they will do everything they can to close it off and jack up the price.
Another good example is when a truck commercial states it has the most towing capacity and then quietly adds "in its class" and down at the bottom of the screen is a disclaimer about the class they are talking about which if you were quick enough and had the eyesight to see it could go look up to find it is the ONLY truck in the class because the manufacturer invented the class so it could make the statement in its commercial.
