Who the hell would declare war on Canada?
I had no idea that Uber was a "high tech" company.
A fantastic service and good idea? Sure. High tech? Not so much.
Except for the US Dollar being the standard reserve currency for every single country on the face of the planet.
Because clearly Slashdot is a good sample of reality.
No wait, it's the opposite of that.
You're assuming that Putin, or the Russians in general, had anything to do with this. This could easily be scapegoating on the part of the DNC trying to spin a very embarrassing document leak into some kind of "our candidate is so strong that the Russians are afraid of her" horseshit.
They're probably laughing about the whole thing, waiting to see which idiot they're going to have to deal with come January.
In my mind, this is the real question:
Is anyone really surprised? Between the DNC Chair being a Clintonite in previous campaigns, the absolute refusal to add more debates to the schedule because they only showed that Hillary only had the same tired old ideas that haven't worked, etc.
Everyone knew this "nominating process" was rigged from the start. These emails just add more confirmation to what we already knew.
Good job arguing with something that nobody said.
I said that both of them were the most liberal viable candidate at the time they were still running. Which is still true, unless you somehow think that Trump is going to enact more progressive / liberal policy than Clinton would.
It's almost shocking that the electorate in Portland would shift from the most liberal candidate (full stop) to the most liberal remaining viable candidate without a single thought of hypocrisy.
No, wait, that's exactly what Portland always does.
Yeah, now let's have that Intel GPU do some actual 3D work and see how it performs at 4K. Hint: it will be terrible, which is why Nvidia is still in business.
Please now back up your assertion that there is some magical affordable GPU out there that can render modern 3D software at 4K or 8K at a constant 60 fps with a link to some kind of... what do we call it? proof.
This isn't for simple video playback, numb nuts. This is for 3D render, and massively parallel floating point math (read: CUDA apps).
Sound cards, at their core, are just creating analog frequencies from a digital source. This is a well understood mature technology, so there's not much to do there except reducing distortion and improving snr.
GPUs however, still have a scale issue - simplistically, the more pixels you drive, the more horsepower you need in the GPU. If we would have stayed at 1024x768 then the GPUs we have today would be massive overkill. But we didn't - a 4k display has more pixels than 10 1024x768 displays, and we're doing far more math per pixel now then we were in 2001 with that bitchin dual Voodoo2 setup doing SLI. And we're not slowing down on the scale either - Apple already has 5k displays in iMacs, and you may have noticed that practically all manufacturers are stuffing more pixels per inch into even small devices in order to get better quality displays - all of this requires far more GPU power to work.
I get the sentiment, but we've always got people crowing about corporations not taking the long view in favor of pumping up the next quarter's filing. What if the numbers from this 10-Q don't match what she's saying because Yahoo is looking farther than 3 months ahead?
Given track record, it's unlikely, but still.
Yay, slashdot fails at less-than and greater-than symbols. Should have read "far more fuel than cancelling [less than] 100% of your eastbound velocity to land on something that is further east"
cancelling 100% of your eastbound velocity and thrusting back to return to where you came from takes far more fuel than cancelling 100% of your eastbound velocity to land on something that is farther east.
That's all well and good, except that the past shows that conditions the government impose have no actual teeth behind them. Nobody bothers to check to see if the conditions are met, and if someone finds out the conditions were not met, nobody bothers to actually impose any sanctions or punishment whatsoever.
We're now 20 years into the Telecommunications Act of 1996 and very little of it has actually been implemented, other than the excise tax that the telecom companies happily cash the check on, and never deliver what it's supposed to be paying for.
