The Legacy of CPU Features Since 1980s

Dog-Cow Re:1980s? (180 comments)

You are a retarded idiot. The author states right at the beginning of the article that he's focusing on x86. In the (late) 80s, most people had an IBM PC, if they had anything.

Closure On the Linux Lockup Bug

Dog-Cow Re:hardening is NOT blaming the hardware (115 comments)

The other posts were, in fact, made later, but someone was messing around with the HPET timer and, well, bugs.

Sony Sends DMCA Notices Against Users Spreading Leaked Emails

Dog-Cow Re:You are factually incorrect. (138 comments)

Copyright does not require disclosure. If that were so, significantly more source code would be available for perusal.

Apparent Islamic Terrorism Strikes Sydney

Dog-Cow Re:Don't worry guys... (880 comments)

Obviously you didn't read it either.

Jews have never fought wars to convert a populace. All the wars in Deuteronomy are over revenge or simply territory. Such was life in the ANE. The ancient Jews were nomads who wanted to settle. Whether an escape from Egypt ever happened or not is irrelevant.

Why Apple, Google, and FB Have Their Own Programming Languages

Dog-Cow Re:Good reasons for Swift and Go (161 comments)

That is an invalid complaint to lay at Objective-C's feet. Objective-C is designed, even now, to be a strict super-set of C. There is no way to overload operators in such a context and still maintain compatibility with C.

Despite Patent Settlement, Apple Pulls Bose Merchandise From Its Stores

Dog-Cow Re:Bose is overpriced crap and always has been (328 comments)

You are an idiot.

I was using the same NT 4 install as a native boot and under VMWare, under the original VMWare beta. Back before it was Workstation, back before Player or any of the server products existed. Back when you had to build the kernel modules by hand after tweaking the kernel. Back when the only VMware version available outside the company was for Linux. Back before OS X was released.

iOS 8 Review

Dog-Cow Re:no wonder apple dropped 16GB machines (216 comments)

I have a work-provided 16GB 5s, which I use all the time. I am currently sitting at 7GB used, 5.8GB free.

I don't feel at all constrained.

iOS 8 Review

Dog-Cow Re:Keyboard (216 comments)

+1000

The shift key is, hands-down, the one aspect of iOS 7 (and 8) that annoys me more than anything.

On the bright side, iOS 8 borrows the suggestion feature from Android, and that makes getting the correct word much easier and faster. It will even try to help with typos and will suggest common phrases.

Your Phone Can Be Snooped On Using Its Gyroscope

Dog-Cow Re:Hiding the phone... (96 comments)

Being an un-funny ass must be really hard work these days. If we were to apply the oh-so-humorous ^W's in your post, it would read That's why you should stick with Apple. With an iPhone you can get the same effect simply wrong. Which, as we can see, makes no sense at all.

Programming Languages You'll Need Next Year (and Beyond)

Dog-Cow Re:We'll "need" Swift? (315 comments)

And trying to write anything non-trivial will have you cursing Apple 7 ways 'til Sunday. It's a still-evolving language with lots of warts and weird behaviors. It has a few cool ideas (for what is intended to be a common language), but very poor execution on many.

Try creating an immutable array, for one.

US Marines Demonstrate Ultra Heavy-Lift Amphibious Connector Prototype

Dog-Cow Re:What would be weird is (91 comments)

That would be weird... the Romans named the area Palestine when the Jews were living there. Why would anyone want to give the land to Arabs?

Dog-Cow Re:This was on Gizmag yesterday... (91 comments)

It's usual for Gizmag to have this article posted yesterday? Outside of Alice in Wonderland, what would that even mean?

I think that's an excellent solution. Shame it's not really final, though.

Will Google's Dart Language Replace Javascript? (Video)

Dog-Cow Re:No (180 comments)

Is that actually using i outside the loop, or are you just implicitly defining i after the loop? I don't know the answer, but based on my knowledge of JS, either could be the case. The latter is not a scope issue.

A New Angle on Imaging

Dog-Cow Dog-Cow writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Dog-Cow (21281) writes ""All cameras capture the intensity of light as it strikes their imaging chips. Color filters provide a second set of data, sorting the rays into different wavelengths. But new devices—including one produced commercially and others still in the lab—are starting to capture a third piece of information: angle. This allows cameras to go beyond focusing on a single plane to measuring images at many different depths of a scene at once. Cameras that capture both intensity and angle will allow for refocusing already-snapped pictures, lensless cameras, and the creation of 3-D images with a single camera, according to researchers in several competing groups.""
