Harold Halloway IT Stud? (134 comments)

What's an 'IT stud'? Is it the geek with the biggest hard drive?

Samsung Reaches Milestone For 14nm Technology

Harold Halloway Translation please (123 comments)

They recently taped out a Cortex-A7 processor with this technology, calling it a significant milestone for the fabless ecosystem."

I'm very good at the English language but I have no idea what this means. How do you 'tape out' a processor? What's a 'fabless ecosystem'? (The rainforests are rather wonderful, I hear.)

Chilling Guidelines Issued For UK Communications Act Enforcement

Harold Halloway Re:How is this "chilling"? (111 comments)

Isn't this 'chilling' as in 'relaxing'? It certainly doesn't worry me and looks as though Starmer-Smith is seeking to tackle the problem in a measured, sensible fashion.

Facebook Says Your Email Is @Facebook

Harold Halloway Likes = Adverts (346 comments)

I hadn't noticed this but in the last week or so I've noticed the appearance of ads masquerading as 'likes'. I'm getting all sorts of shit in my newsfeed on a regular (i.e. daily basis.) FaceBitch is definitely going out of its way to piss off users. Thank goodness for Social Fixer.

Eh? I regularly browse on a 1024x768 netbook without difficulty. Seems to me that the web pages you are browsing don't scale too well.

No, it's a joke. Although not a terribly good one, it would appear.

Some Critics Suggest Apple Boycott Over Chinese Working Conditions

Harold Halloway "Everyone is doing it" (744 comments)

I note that few of the Apple fanbois have chosen to defend Apple here. Rather they just bleat that 'everyone does it', as though that's ever been much of a justification for appalling behaviour.

Some Critics Suggest Apple Boycott Over Chinese Working Conditions

Harold Halloway What's the cheapest Apple product? (744 comments)

I need to know what the cheapest Apple product is, please? The reason is, I'm pretty penniless right now so boycotting e.g. a MacBook would be an empty gesture as I can't afford one anyway. However if I can refuse to buy something that I could afford e.g. an iPod Shuffle or an iPhone dock or something then I'm right behind you, sisters.
