Think of hydrogen as an energy storage medium. Hydrogen can be used in an ICE much like compressed natural gas. Several years ago, BMW had a fleet of 7-Series sedans on the road that did just that. However, the consensus is that hydrogen is put to its best use in fuel cells.Opponents of hydrogen go on ad nauseam ad infinitum about the source of electricity used to extract hydrogen from its source. They try to drown-out thoughts about a very important fact about...
With Flash video (.flv) files, the Elmedia Player "just works" on my systems. The only thing that I can think of is that you may not have Adobe's Flash Player Internet Plugin installed on your Mac. Remember what I wrote in my earlier post. Elmedia Player uses your installed Internet Plugins to handle the various and sundry video formats.
One man's trash is another man's treasure. Eltima's Elmedia Player uses your installed Internet Plugins to play video in .flv, various and sundry QuickTime-supported formats, Real Video, and Silverlight. Elmedia Player can be used as a standalone player that plays your downloaded videos. It can also display webpages and play the videos embedded there. Discussions of video players often take on theological overtones. I hope that the religious zealots don't extend this...
Which version of Final Cut Pro are you trying to run?
The term scientific computing is broad and nebulous. What you appear to be taking about is not specifically scientific computing at all. You are talking about clusters. Scientific software makes scientific computing. A cluster can be used for computing intensive tasks--scientific or otherwise. Clusters are usually built of components for white box computers. and powered by Linux. Each node is cheaper than an iPhone. Where is the room for Apple aggression in this scenario?...
Having attended a scientific computing conference where two Apple employees were the featured guests, I have to disagree.
If you had done a little more research, then you would know that this is not true.
Whether you realize it not, you just confirmed that Macs were based on the same processors used by Sun and other workstation manufacturers. This confirmation completely eviscerates your contention that Macs had "wimpy" processors. To drive the point home, 128 K Macs benchmarked to about 50% of Sun workstation. It is interesting that you brought the LaserWriter into the conversation. The LaserWriter was also based on the 68000. Two revolutionary devices both based on a...
I gather that you have no idea what the world of personal computing was like in 1984. The Mac used the Motorola 68000 processor. Before it developed its SPARC RISC processor, Sun used the 68000 as the basis of its workstations including its original workstation. Also based on the 68000 were computers from Hewlett-Packard, Radio Shack, IBM, and many others. In the case of IBM, its Scientific PC was a Unix-based desktop based on the 68000. IBM also sold a System 360...
