This is simply another fail policy; fact checking of late has be shown to to be biased.
Of course it has. And Hilary Clinton is a Reptoid from the Hollow Earth and Donald Trump has been negotiating with gray aliens for the cure to cancer. Do not believe the people who tell you these are not facts. They're biased.
Same. Only mine was later upgraded with a 16KB RAM card (for a total of 64KB, like the later
My dad had the version with the 16KB RAM module you plugged in the back. Unfortunately, if you banged that membrane keyboard a little too hard, it would fall out, and then you'd lose everything.
The fact that you said "one of the best" instead of "the best" is the point here. Any company that makes a benchmark (or other test) for a product they make never intends for a competitor to come out as #1.
Dumb. Chrome goes through Canary, Developer, and Beta channels before the general public ever sees a new build. You can use Octane on any of those. By your reckoning, of course no version of Chrome ever comes out behind. But what actually happens is the benchmark score bounces up and down with ongoing development of the engine.
But if I booked my travel with a site like Expedia (as per the topic), you already have all that information. No need to "enter it from scratch." It's always there on the computer when I show up at the front desk. A little hand-waving and they hand me my keys.
Yeah, the "by the hour" hotels you stay at don't ask for or keep any info, but have you ever checked into a Marriott?
I can't count how many hotels I've checked into using aggregate services like the ones described. Never once have I seen the poor, quivering guy at the front desk have to take down my personal details with a quill pen, and I've never had to fill them out either.
That Google feels the need to retire Octane over this is almost unbelievable... there must be some ulterior motivation.
Why that assumption? Google explained its reasons quite clearly:
Google is retiring the benchmark suite so that good-intentioned open source developers will not be able to use it as a proof point for why their patches improve performance, when in fact they don't.
P.S. It seems one other group is disappointed that the benchmark is going away, though, and that's Chromebook fans. They've been using Octane to benchmark the performance of hardware from different vendors running the same version of Chrome OS. That still seems like a legit use case to me.
Thing is, even with age restrictions on the vehicles allowed, they're still going to get older, dirtier, smellier.
Why? It's not like Uber operates its own fleet of vehicles. The drivers bring their own cars. The last one I was in was a nice, well-kept BMW.
