The exchanges seems to have gone down recently: http://www.zdnet.com/bitcoin-under-mutated-transaction-dos-attacks-but-funds-safe-7000026237/ Part vulnerability in the bitcoin protocol, part DoS attack. "it's possible for an attacker on the network to mess with the identifier — or hash — of a transaction, which is used by wallets to confirm a transaction between them. Once confirmed, the hashes form part of the Bitcoin 'blockchain' ledger of historical transactions. An...
It was a while ago, the label takes time to update when the temporary ban ends.It happens with any development they come out with. Whether it's NFC, big displays, home screen widgets, 3rd party app stores, they think these are the inevitable next steps and it's why Samsung uses the marketing "the next big thing is already here". They want more than anything for Apple to follow their lead. When Apple instead puts in a fingerprint sensor, 64-bit chips, dual-LEDs for a true...
He had said that the attention messed up his "simple life":"He still lives at home with his parents in Hanoi, but finds it difficult to walk down the street in his neighborhood without being pestered. He says he has virtually disconnected himself from the Internet and hasn’t checked his email in days. He is also on vacation from his day job writing firmware for sophisticated computer hardware and said he isn’t sure if or when he will return to work.The fuss, Mr. Dong says,...
With enough guesses, someone will be close and then they can claim later on they were accurate so people believe them in future and maybe get paid for their analysis. The fact Macrumors yesterday posted a mockup image with a 4.7" and 5.5" phone here:http://www.macrumors.com/2014/02/11/iphone-6-said-to-adopt-bezel-free-display/and then today, there comes out news about someone seeing a 4.7" and 5.5" form factor, it's clear that it's the usual cycle of rumors based on...
It's not shocking that you talk to a lot of people but even if it's 1000 people, it's still a fraction of a community that you describe as being in the hundreds of thousands and I'm sure not every single one of the people you talk to entirely dismisses AMD or OpenCL. What happens if NVidia goes bankrupt? All that code would have to be rewritten.It will still work, it'll just go into swap. Plus, in the context of GPU computing using 6GB of memory, 64GB is a lot of RAM to...
It only became popular recently. This site has a chart of the App Store position:http://marketingland.com/viral-rise-fall-flappy-bird-73479That rise to the top of the chart happened before the PewDiePie video, which was uploaded January 27th so the video probably just helped increase the downloads. It's possible it made $50,000 a day since about January 10th but not before. That's still over $1m and it doesn't stop generating money after taking it out the store.Getting to...
K40 is 1.43 teraflops, K20 does 1.17:http://www.nvidia.com/object/tesla-workstations.htmlso two D700s with 870 gigaflops each is 1.74 teraflops double precision. The two D700s cost $1000, K40 retail is $5300.You're not explaining why this is true universally. You assume that your specific software applies to the entire scientific community and make generalised statements about the Mac Pro's unsuitability for it and that Apple therefore doesn't care at all about that market...
There seems to be a compatible 8GB option now:http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=E36E65ADA5CA7304You could put 4GB in one slot but integrated graphics gets a higher memory bandwidth using matched memory.The latest version is fine. One of the best ways to improve the responsiveness of the machine is to use a solid state drive instead of the hard...
Their latest figures include any deferrals and the ASP is still $1322 for the quarter, which is almost identical to the previous quarters going back 3 years. Anyway, whatever they choose to bundle free has nothing to do with the effect of post-PC devices. For now, the Mac line isn't suffering nearly as much as PCs.
Apple doesn't go out of their way to cater to special interest groups and the small volume of those groups is enough justification for that but that doesn't mean they don't expect anyone from those groups to be able to use their products. They have a close relationship with Wolfram who use OpenCL for scientific computation:http://blog.stephenwolfram.com/2011/10/steve-jobs-a-few-memories/http://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/new-in-8/cuda-and-opencl-support/That's quite a...
