Re: Holodecks aren't just about processing power

Ok smarty pants... how are they going to achieve that? Or make it possible for two people in the same room to travel at the same time to opposite parts of the world?

RISC OS

From my understanding oh holodeck technology....

...much of the material in the holodeck is really what it looks like... they use replicator and transporter technology to do that... I can't see that coming anytime soon.

RISC OS

Re: Holodecks aren't just about processing power

Yeah but how do they solve the biggest problem... letting move about in the holodeck like it it is the whole world when it is only the same size as a toilet?

Are are people just going to simulate toilets with their holodecks?

Re: Holodecks aren't just about processing power

No, if intel are making them you'll have to watch a 3d "intel inside" jingle before it starts generating you room... then AV vendors will start paying for intel to but holographic AV crapware in your holodeck... and then everything will turn blue when the american built piece of shit crashes.

Wikipedia is edited by nerds, most of whom haven't any more knowledge on the subject sthey edit then a 'tard.

Their one goal in live seem to be to revert edits made by anypne who isn't an editor.... wikipedia should really redesign the interface if they want anyone to edit it... is there anyone on earth who understands what they see when they view the history for the page?

Microsoft 'touches 16k shop workers' to flog Windows 8 hard

Re: "consumers didn't understand touch-based laptops"

Consumers understand touchscreen... what they don't understand is why they are so expensive, or why they should pay hundreds more and have worse specs... apple only got away with that by exploiting idots that think price = quality, and they could only do that by not having cheap good quality hardware in the first place, sadly MS has been helping to flog cheap hardware for decadeds by giving away windows and offering OEMs discounts to bundle windows with their hardware.

No wonder captain janeway...

... was so adept at writing "algorithms" in 45 minutes that would interface with alien networks and discover ways to disable borg cubes... or discover ways to drive ships beyond there normal speeds - LCARS obviously also runs on JavaScript.... and this is how it all began, by letting every firefox extension writer create desktop apps.

Youtube is becoming unwatchable

If there not playing the youtube anthem they play audio thta is just as bad.... and now films have a gazillion popups over them tryijng to get you to watch films you don't want to see to increase the uploaders view count, then there are the comments... a prime example of diarrhea that the anus of the internt can produce when you let commenttards air their views plus you need a google account to do it which if you forget to logout lets google track your searches when you go to google.

I don't subscribe because I don'T want agoogle account tracking my searches targeting adds on pages with films plastered with links to the uploaders other films, but if I did wouldn't pay for them - I would just stop using them

If anything fuck5up starwars

it will be either anal fans complaining that "that's not what happened if the last film", or it will be because disney own it... they fuckup everything and their films seldom do well outside of the USA because of their sickening US family political correctness... I'd be more worried about what disney instist happens in the film than the director having once directed a star trek film... on that was successful and appealed to people who wouldn't know if helmsmann pressed the greenbutton to go to warp in episode #34 or the red one, and whether it was the same red or green button that he pressed in the film.

Why is it that...

...american gun nuts want to shoot guns and kill people who threaten the USA but very few sign up... and the ones that do soon start crying that they shouldn't get involved... because it hurts when they get shot.... and that they (the troops) should be brought back to the USA.... where guns don't hurt people.

hmm... "the only way to stop a bad man with a gun is agood man with a gun"... so what happened in 'nam? Iraq? Afganistan? Were all the US soldiers bad people?

You just need to look at the desktop wallpaper of gamers/net admins and the like to see what they think of women. I haven't yet seen asysadmins desktop that doesn't have a picture of woman wearing a bikini while shooting guns. Nerd desktops are no different than mechanics wall calendars. These are the people making and playing the games, it's no wonder that the women in the game look like they do...

Mark Zuckerberg doesn't know how to use HTML5

RISC OS

I'd like to see....

...how responsive and snappy their html 5 site would be if they actually had to get their data from the same source as the app and take into account all the things the app does. The people at facebook have about a billion users, I'm sure there no how to make html 5 apps,and there are reasons why they couldn't get there html 5 app to work the way the fasterbook does.

People here who think that facebook doesn't know how to write an html5 app should first try and make one under the constraints, restrictions and requirements that sencha didn't need to work under.

ExtJs sucks balls compared to jquery and the documentation is shite. Instead of claiming to know more about app development than facebook they should concentrate on improving their own stuff... banning that self righteous anal arse user that goes by the name of "Animal" from their offical foruns might be a good start to actually getting people to bother learning extjs

I'm a filer

I hat a full inbox and have loads of folders. I dislike tagging and have never had a problem deciding which folder to filter something into.

My boss is a piler, his gmail inbox has 9000+ unread emails in it, he never deletes anything. I delete stuff all the time, and I get about 10 emails a day on a busy day. I find it funny that people brag about getting hundreds each day and how many gigabyte of mails they have archived.... you knwo your a nerd if you even think about how much email you have archived.

"define the consumer online experience"

Adverts don't define my online consumer experience... partly because I don't see any ads thanks to adblock, but also because I spend maybe 5 minutes a month at an online retailer... only there am I a consumer.

Re: Microsoft in schools IS a GOOD thing

I agree...

my computer leassons consisted of using bbc computers and then later riscos. A complete fuck!ng waste of t!me. What did everyone at my school learn after leaving school? That no fucker had ever heard of an archimedes or used one.

It was completely pointless. As is forcing people to use "alternative" software just because some nerd runs the IT department. Maybe it's ok for the nerds to use OOo crap but in the real world people need to know how to use the software that everyone else is using (and actually communicate with real people). How many silicon valley nerds who make it big are into car customisation and go and build their own cars from scratch.... none, they all want an off the shelf sportscar or peoplecarrier. Yet they moan when normal people want the same with OSs and software.

Everyone now knows MS, trainning new staff to use LO would talke ages, cost lots of money, and the fact that LO can do the same as MS office isn't an argument. PLus you have to explain everything again when the poeple writing the code can'T be bothered anymore. Or the code gets forked, a new name means completely different software to normal people.

How many OS nerds would give up their cars and travel to work with public transport? A bus does everything a car does and it is open... anyone can get on it and your part of a community. Funny, I don't see many nerds going to work in a bus. And that's why yournever see people at work wanting to use LO or OOo.
