It's always been a prestige model and, secondarily, a testbed for miniaturization of components. I'm kind of impressed at the all-Flash storage, actually.
Your right, but this design comes to market and its already slightly jaded. 64Gb ssd, Nvidia 330m. Sort of reminds me of the first EEEpcs. However as a 'new' product it sits quite well between the ipad and the macbook but I'm willing to bet it will be silently updated when OS X 10.Lion is released during summer. Probably using Intel's new sandy bridges or (hopefully) AMD fusion.
SSD's Sata 3 are coming soon, that will saturate USB 3.
Hopefully one day people might see the light...
Quick someone call Al Gore, manbearpig has reached orbit
One distinct disadvantage... HEAT! even with all the die shrinks
No1 Advantage, forcing Intel to product decent graphics.
Logic is programming! And its from the school of philosophy
Philosophy > Math. I agree math skills are needed, but programming is more an art than a science.
At least I see a little beauty in awesome code, even if it is awesomely bad.
In everything creativity is king.
op:all u need is a very small magnet.
next question, move on people nothing to see here
Science fiction usually explores ideas and themes that are within the realm of current theoretical science, like time machines or nanotechnology.This was great fodder for sci fi writers, but today there simply isn't as of many 'new' revolutionary ideas in science. Most new scienctific discoveries and theories don't lend themselves as the main concept or premise of a story. They simply are not as remarkable or seemingly supernatural to the lay or nerdy crowd. I hope its just my own naïveté, but I fear science is just less theatrical nowdays. Also I say we blame the internet, people who like or would have liked sci fi are just too well informed. Classic SciFi always has science/techology be of equal dramatic force to the social/character driven drama, such equality is just too hard with the nature of science today...
any unix machine can do this, like a billion years ago.
The National Broadband Network, also known as NBNCo is a Fibre to the Home (FTTH) network.
USSR already won the space race, in my eyes. Sending robots to the moon > man to the moon.
Sending man into outter space seems like a silly idea to me still, robotics ftw.
It developed a very nice wifi solution, in something like 6months and they did it as pure research. Do you need more legitimacy ?
The money they've (imho) rightly got will go back into pure research. To develop idea and theories now, that will be hopefully as useful as wifi. You don't want useful things?
As an Australian citizen don't you think I want my research organisation to be given its due?
Everyone had access to there results as they published it, I can only find an 18page patent "Wireless LAN John D. O'Sullivan et al". I'd hazard a guess there has been a dozen more journal articles as well, just like any other important research - that was publicly funded.
