Those are gas meters, not electrical meters in the accompanying photo.

MIT showed off something similar last year:
And have since developed it further:
Also, Canadians. This also affected Canadians - or at least this Canadian, in Eastern Canada.
First it prevented me from watching on my WDTV, then I tried my Xbox360 and PS3 with no luck. My Asus Transformer Infinity worked fine for another hour, then that too stopped working. I continued watching on my PC - which eventually got a little wonky, but did keep letting me watch stuff, if after a bit of a longer wait than usual.
(This was the Canadian Netflix, not the US Netflix with the DNS trick.)
Yes, the site rearrangement is not optimal.
When I go to BOFH (after eventually finding it), it doesn't list the articles by most recent, which is important if I want to read the most recent, or realize I have read it already.
Is this some attempt to clean the site up and make it more professional, the removal of Odds & Sods? Seems to be missing the point of the site itself. I hope this isn't going to be a trend.
I've been using this every morning and evening on my commute to/from work. I have a 6GB/month data plan and have been worried about the data usage, but my provider seems not to be able to measure the bandwidth this uses for whatever reason, as my usage numbers are nowhere near what they should be. Just hoping they don't suddenly tally them all up at once...
Nope, I just made my hometown Fucking, Austria. Has a picture of the sign and everything. Might possibly be related to "community standards". I'm in Canada, and this sort of thing on a Facebook page wouldn't raise many eyebrows. I don't know how much the Catholic Church still dominates Ireland, but I can see the "community standards" being less relaxed in such a place.
I'm very happy to see the fade in effect disappear. It was somewhat irritating as it slowed down the speed at which I could enter a search query. With the fade in the cursor would take a few extra moments to appear in the search box. (This was a problem because: if I'm going to Google, I've got a pretty good idea what I intend to type when I get there, usually; not every computer I regularly access is either fast, or tweakable for various reasons. This was not exactly a huge thing, but I'm at the bloody website for a purpose, and if you slow me down more than what I have become accustomed to, you are an impediment to me and therefore deserve my ire.)
This is a good move for AMD. From what I understand, Intel doesn't want to improve the performance of Atom, or allow it in anything over a certain size, etc., for fear of cannibalizing sales of the beefier chips. AMD can make it as fast as it can, and let you put it in whatever you want - definite advantages for the AMD chips.
Also, some mentioned there was no info on power consumption, well I quote you this, from the last page of the article:
"The Bobcat design is also meant to push the power envelope down, and can hit below one watt per core of power consumption, according to Hoepper."
Sure, it's about what a future chip may be able to do, and not really as specific as one might hope, but it's something. I'm sure we'll find out more before someone forces us to buy one...
Well, Ferrari is owned by Fiat, and they sure as hell do care about the low end, cheap tat side of the market.
Ford used to own Aston Martin and Jaguar - which, while not really quite at the same level as Ferrari, are certainly well at the end near it. This would be better with the later poster's comparison between BMW and Ford, as Jaguar and Aston Martin are more in that market than that for Ferraris.
What are we talking about again?
If you read Anand's review over here: www.anandtech.com/show/3794/the-iphone-4-review
you see the signal bar formula was clearly skewed, but if you read further you see that they tested the absolute variation in signal strength due to hand contact, and it was worse on this than the competition. (As also pointed here: www.arstechnica.com/apple/news/2010/07/apple-says-iphone-4-algorithm-is-to-blame-not-signal.ars )
Real cost: $270, according to these folks:
Think about it. iPad = Netbook - keyboard + touchscreen flattened out a bit. Swap the hard drive for a bit of flash, swap the cheap Atom for a cheaper, less powerful, less power-hungry ARM, swap the MS OS for an Apple one and voilà! iPad. People were "amazed" at $499 as the price. I'm amazed they're asking that much for it.
They also mention the 3G has an even greater profit margin, as the radio bits only cost $16.
Quite a bit of room to pay development expenses and make a bit of profit, I would think.
(Also room for the competition-crushing price drop we'll probably see when the other tablet makers launch their newest devices at current-competitive prices. (Although maybe not, Apple doesn't like to charge less than it has to.)
Guess he hasn't heard of this:
but maybe he's thinking this could take that long to reach laptops (if it launches (has launched) as soon as the article predicts, I don't think it would be long before someone would jam it in a laptop):
"Calendar used to conceive for first time ever"
Yes, that says it right there. This was made possible by the iPhone, as though no such capability existed before the iPhone. Like the guy in Haiti "saved" by his iPhone. He had a first aid app on his phone which suggested methods at preserving his life. Unlike actual first aid training. Or a little booklet. And the iPhone woke him every twenty minutes to keep him from sleeping with his concussion. Unlike an alarm on a watch. Or every one of the last four cell phones I have owned have been capable of... Also, from what I have heard (which may be apocryphal), some of the first aid advice was actually harmful given it couldn't be given with consideration to the whole context of his situation.
This is irritating.
Umm, the issue here isn't that people are being complete idiots and clicking yes or going to suspect web sites.
A: The nasty people are very good at figuring out these security loopholes, and often put them to use before a working patch is available.
B: Sites I wouldn't have a reason to distrust on the surface, may have dodgy security and be susceptible to the attacks we are seeing reported in this article.
Now, full-fledged Java is another thing. I hate it because of the amount of resources I have always seen it use up just using it.
