Not disagreeing with the rest of your comment, but streamed voice grade audio requires very little bandwidth.
And California would be sucking pretty badly without Silicon Valley too.
Without Silicon Valley, California would still have Hollywood, which adds a lot to the state's economy. California would look pretty bad if you took out San Francisco, Los Angeles, and their surrounding areas, but most states would look pretty bad if you took away 75% of their population.
Funny, it didn't seem to be happening prior to the Obama administration. I'm glad he bridged the racial divide.
Someone's been watching too much TV...
Agreed, and I didn't vote for him either. But the allegations never played will with me. There was no evidence, and why would it all suddenly come up a month before the election? This was a clear smear attempt.
Um, no. Just as if your parents starved you, and stunted your growth, that's not an evolutionary change either.
And what did Bam Bam have to say about this?
Height change is easily attributable to dietary improvement. You could almost see it happening in Korea over the last few decades as they added meat to their diets. That's not an evolutionary change.
I'll just say that in my anecdotal case, where the doctor showed me the view up there, and I thought I'd never fit in that thing again...It all snapped back. Those things are AMAZING!
Who would want to go through surgery if they didn't have to, and then go through a year long period of recovery?
Apparently, at least 3%...that's just the number that were granted, not the number who requested it.
I don't think this is what he meant by "grab them by the pussy"
My understanding is most server farms are connected to dedicated nuclear power plants anyway, so power consumption isn't an issue. Heat dissipation? Yeah, that might be an issue.
Heat and power are the same issue. The conservation of energy means that power in is power out, and the power out is heat that needs to be dissipated. A rule of thumb for data centres is that every dollar you pay in electricity for the computers, you need to pay another dollar in electricity for cooling. If you want high density, then you hit hard limits in the amount of heat that you can physically extract (faster fans hit diminishing returns quickly). This is why AMD's presence in the server room went from close to 100% to close to 0%: Intel was much better at low power.
