The Xbox Driving Video reminded me of this from last century:
What about SoI or SoS?A while back I did some surfing and there were companies doing research in this area ... AIR, it included APUs and stacked DRAM chips.Basically, much smaller traces requiring much less power while providing much better heat dissipation.
While I agree that Apple has no offering the TV arena -- I don't think they should ...However, that does not mean that Apple has no skin in the game for hi-resolution displays. I am reading/writing this on a loaded iMac 5K computer that has a base price similar to Dell's 5K display. Based on experience, I suspect this computer returns a profit margin consistent with similar Apple products.
Well, I never even touched an Amiga …But, on the Apple ][, while you were directly interfacing the hardware with Peaks and Pokes or with assembler -- what you were really doing was using the APIs in the ROM built into the computer.Bill Atkinson and a couple of others came into our store, after visiting Amiga (supposedly, Apple was considering buying them for their hardware). They were laughing and almost giddy – – I can remember Atkinsen saying "we can do that all in...
Agreed, this is one of DED's better articles ...We went down this path, a bit, in another thread -- where we discussed the possibility of using multiple Ax CPU/GPU chips to augment laptop and desktop processor and graphics capability.I think there could be significant gains in things like optical flow analysis, real-time effects rendering, codec/format conversions, etc. In other words, tailor the software to the hardware for a few, specific tasks.The question, IMO, is the...
I'm no gamer, so this is an honest question.Do you really see a return to the desktop for gaming -- once people have experienced the freedom and flexibility of almost-as-good mobile gaming?I would think that the economies of scale would drive enhancements to mobile gaming hardware/software/apps/accessories much more rapidly than on the desktop. Consider the advances in mobile phone photography and video capture, for example.
From your second link:The above mirrors my experience, almost exactly ... Because DED was, mostly, stating things I wanted to believe, it took me longer than I like to admit -- to realize what he was about.DED is knowledgeable, intelligent and is capable of writing excellen, concise articles. But, too often they deteriorate into a tirade about every real or imagined slight DED believes wronged him.I can usually guess, by the wording of the headline, when an article is...
Wow! That's way beyond my metalworking skills -- Impressed! I'll limit my comments, mostly. to the woodworking.Do I detect the ways for an Incra Fence system? It is interesting that you're using the saw table for metalwork assembly -- do you use any of the saw jigs, or is it just a convenience/space issue?Maple, isn't it? I like the mixture of industrial design and fine woodworking!I like it! Cherry? Mahogany? I never had much luck/patience with varnish. I used to...
It's circumstantial, but it's matter of style. I followed DED on Roughly Drafted and DED/Prince McClean on AI for years. After a while, you recognize the style and can predict with high-accuracy what is coming ... like Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Hannity, Chris Matthews et al.If you go back through @Corrections posts -- AFAICT, they are only made to attack posters criticizing DED articles ... And the style of using embedded BOLD instead of quoting makes it difficult to...
