Something tells me that the current Apple TV won't be around long. There just seems to be a lot of AppleTV promotions going on at the moment.
In a better world this is exactly what would happen. If you want to spend your life as a welfare momma you should be required to undergo permanent sterilization. One of our countries biggest problems right now is allowing woman on welfare to have babies, more and more babies that end up becoming nothing but criminals. All you need to do is to look at Ferguson to see what harm families that aren't capable of raising their children do to this country.
Literally!There where alternatives. Leaving the world without twinkles is pretty sad.It would have been better to reopen the factory someplace else without the union. The sad thing here is that I'm certain many of those union members think they did the right thing. The destruction of a company like this however can never be considered the right thing, it is just too bad the union and its members couldn't have addressed the issues before them honestly. This is...
The vast majority of those jobs require far more skill than a security guard needs to sit on his ass at an entry point. I'm not sure where the attitude comes from that every job out there needs to offer a living wage, it is nonsense really. The fact is this wage rate average is way beyond the minimal wage seen for guards in other locations.It depends upon whole the survey was made for. Corporations often use surveys designed to bias wage rates to the low end. ...
The problem is this, why should I have to work to support both the company I wok for and a (second) bunch of crooks?This is going back many years, but a year or so after leaving high school I went to the state fair. One pavilion was set up with a bunch of different unions recruiting new members. Being open minded and having an interest in at least one industry represented I decided to have a look around. What impressed me the most wasn't the Union members recruiting...
I'm not a big fan of fool.com but they have an interesting piece here: http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/11/24/intel-corporation-14-nanometer-woes-pressure-2015.aspx. I take that reporting to indicate that 14nm is now production ready so I expecting Broadwell in early 2015. skyLake also seems to still be planned for 2015 but the details of what are planned have not been presented. So maybe we have something to look forward too in early 2015, ideally new...
They will have to do more than pump up the clock rate. Some of AMD's chips already run at rather high clock rates. The need to boost IPC.HSA is great for people that understand the limitations imposed by a GPU architecture. Many have a tendency to see it as a way to run any code that is suitable for the CPU. It isn't but HSA is very useful.I didn't hear that statement. Sounds interesting though as I see the future being a world of many core chips where the...
That is a reference to Inels settlement with NVidia, I'm not sure how much actually NVidia tech is in Intels GPUs though. However the fact remains Intels GPUs went from being useless to good enough for modest needs fairly quickly. From my perspective Intels GPUs have made the AIR Mac Books viable and in the case of the new Mini offer a big step forward.Yep. Unfortunately we haven't seen Intel make these drastic decisions in the past. History seems to indicate that...
You do realize they are completely different machines servicing different user bases.In any event don't believe me, research what is happening at Intel and other manufactures. Consider how slow RAM is today compared the internal workings of a CPU.Nope but it did allow Apple to implement LPDDR 3 RAM.
The industry will leave them behind if they don't get their head out of the sand.I was kinda hoping for an AMD chip in the Mini as that would be the ideal product for the chip.It is AMDs superior integrated GPUs that has me wanting them in a Mini. Admittedly Intel is catching up so it is more of a mixed bag now.Opencl is nice but I find that a lot of people don't understand it and have misplaced expectations. Applied right it is a massive advantage though.I'm not sure...
