Not even with your dick and Biden pushing.
No, Google, eat your own dog food. WEBP is a great standard show me how RAISR is better than WEBP since both are under the same rooftop.
And everybody agrees JPEG is old, tired and long in the tooth the old patent issues. Then there was JPEG-2000 but again patent issues. Again, why would Google push this on top of what's essentially something that collectively we've been told is dying and encumbered by *possible* patent issues? I can see from the press info and details that they've come up with a way to use ML in a new way, great. But again, why not on top of WEBP they're own great new way of doing this and not JPEG? you can convert JPEGs to WEBP why not? Oh the browsers don't support WEBP but do JPEG?
This is all the wrong way round. First Google and the other 800lb gorillas out there agree on a standard & make sure it's royalty and patent free. Then the 800lb gorillas all agree and you too digital camera mfgs and cell phone mfgs, all agree and then JPEG is dead and long live BPG. Google tried it, Mozilla, Facebook and others held their noses even though WEBP is great. Sure it takes awhile to convert but guess what, it does pretty much what this new standard does. WEBP isn't dead either but now because of no consensus there's BPG. That's why they're AAF, rather than working with Mozilla, MSFT, Facebook et al and getting to consensus on a standard they all can agree upon we have multiple, fragmented streams of standards and Google here won't really eat its own dog food.
Shit, first it was vp8/WEBM but momentum seems to have died on that but now there's vp9 and it's better than vp8 and now images. Google you're annoying as fuck with the moving targets on your open standards, and while I think it's great that we now have another way to store images but we still have GIF, PNG, SVG, JPEG and even your own )(*@)(*! WEBP which is based on VP8 which you don't like anymore. So now with RAISR what do we all do start buying dart boards to figure out what standards we as ISVs should be targeting? None of the other formats are going away anytime soon but since vp8, vp8, WEBP and RAISR are all under your roof, can we ask that you make up your damn minds, please?!?!
Giant impact theory gets bonus points.
and the lawyers will get paid.
and paid again.
yes but that driver and his measly liability policy doesn't have the deep pockets that Apple has.
Cyanogen Inc., a startup based in Palo Alto, is shutting down all its services, including nightly builds. The company’s open source fork CyanogenMod will also be discontinued on New Year’s Eve. The surprise announcement leaves over 50 million users, which the company claims are using its software, out in the dark. Cyanogen is a modified version of Android that doesn't need to rely on Google services.
I've been using CyanogenMod for a long time, for a lot of Android users out there this is bad news.
Which is where they're extremely good but does anybody remember Voodoo? 3dfx? Anybody?
The X86 line is old, tired. Now there's Zen in the future but I'm not holding my breath. It's like waiting for the dragons in a well known TV drama. Their A10 line isn't that great unless you want a really cheap x86 setup; i5s beat them in almost every category. Also getting sued because your core count you advertised isn't what you get doesn't bode well in terms of your roadmap or architecture plans. It also doesn't help when everybody looks at your flagship bulldozer architecture and says "Meh."
Some weasel clause in there license probably has

That fine print will get you every time.
Those aren't reclaimed islands, those are dirt aircraft carriers.
Most of these new regulations and acts will have little or no meaning. True it's symbolic but under The Congressional Review Act:
Congress is given 60 legislative days to disapprove, after which the rule will go into effect.
For the regulation to be invalidated, the Congressional resolution of disapproval either must be signed by the President, or must be passed over the President's veto by two-thirds of both Houses of Congress.
While a 2/3rds majority of both houses won't happen, a mere majority resolution of disapproval that the new POTUS signs would nullify this. I believe this mainly on the grounds to revitalize domestic production after Saudi Arabia went on it's production glut.
I'm all for nature and renewable energy but our current POTUS has had a royal feast of land grabbing, this included. Not including the Waters of the United States.
Besides drilling offshore is not a really good idea anyway.
Priced Bose lately?
