Given that you don't know the difference between CAPEX and LCoE, it's safe to dismiss most everything you say as lacking substance.   But to be direct, the report I linked to covers 1) CAPEX, 2) LCoE, 3) transmission overhead and CF adjustments.   If you care to actually read it, you'll see it addresses every one of your points.   > What matters TODAY is the investment you make TODAY   LOLZ. The DOE paper, if you care to actually look at the fine print, was based...
Wind and solar the fastest growing power sources in history. My reality beats your sophistry.  *sigh* You are confusing LCoE with CAPEX. Generation 101 dude. And its wrong anyway: https://www.lazard.com/media/1777/levelized_cost_of_energy_-_version_80.pdf Page 2 compares the LCoE for power sources that come online next year. The most advanced nuclear plants are over twice the price of wind. These numbers are the most up to date available. The DoE number you are quoting is...
So as someone that actually worked in the industry, and has a nuclear plant right outside his window (literally), let me tell what is actually going on. Nuclear power plants consist largely of two parts. Even the buildings reflect this. On one side you have the "nuclear island" with the reactor and the first cooling loop. On the other is the turbine hall with the 2nd (and sometimes 3rd) cooling loop and all the non-nuclear bits and parts. Inside that hall is there the...
" 'a gigantic money pit'"   What, like your stock options?   Hey ho!
But seems like a very bad idea in this case, no? The last ATV was unchanged for years. There's no reason to suspect that won't be the case for this one too. Locking in at a lower limit seems really stupid.
So it uses an A8... maybe not even the A8X? Wouldn't it have made more sense to start on the A9X, so game authors would have the absolute latest to work with? The A8's no slouch, don't get me wrong, but 2x that performance would put them well into high-end console range.
The thing I'm most interested in is being able to port one of the TV tuner front ends to the ATV. That way I can use something like a Silicon Dust or Tablo and watch TV anywhere. Other set-tops already do this, Apple is the big holdout.
LOLZ. The reason this market is "quiet" is because no one wants one. If you want a laptop you get a laptop, if you want a tablet you get a tablet. IDC's guess is precisely as useful as all their former predictions.
I use Chrome on the PC and it's little better there. Opening a single tab causes all sorts of background tasks to spawn, all called "Chrome" in Task Manager, all of them eating up 50 to 200 MB.   Right now I have two Chrome windows running, and there seven entries in Task Manager, with a total of 450 meg.   Closing these two windows will remove only two of those tasks, leaving the other five running until I reboot. Opening new tabs or windows will spawn more of these...
Pfft, spoken like a true audiophreak. Go run a double blind test and get back to me.
