The Untold Story of the Invention of the Game Cartridge

Iniamyen Re:And we are back to them again... (60 comments)

As I understand it, the difference between a cartridge and something like a USB drive is one of level of integration. In the case of a cartrige, the logic in the cartridge is basically directly interfaced with the system hardware, and becomes part of the execution path directly. With a USB drive, there are layers of obfuscation separating the data on the drive from the computer (USB drivers, the filesystem, the OS, etc.) It's probably a subjective line to draw, but in the case of cartridges vs. USB drives it's pretty clear.

That's the great thing about styling... it's subjective. So although you are correct, someone could tell you that you're wrong, and they'd be correct as well.

That stuff isn't always fact-checked or verified. What you get with /. is the second-to-none integrity of the information that's provided.

Ask Slashdot: High-Performance Laptop That Doesn't Overheat?

Iniamyen Re: Always had such issues (325 comments)

From a user's point of view, "hot" probably means "hot to the touch" and not "CPU die temp is higher." I don't want to rest my hands on my heatsink.

Tumblr Co-Founder: Apple's Software Is In a Nosedive

Iniamyen Re:Hard Release Dates (598 comments)

Sadly, this is not what happens in the real world. Software updates are often tied to other deadlines which are "set in stone," or at least enough so that no amount of complaining from the people doing the software will change them. What should result is a negotiated (perhaps reduced) set of functionality that might be decided literally at the last second, but that's OK, because it's agreed upon. What usually results instead is "buggy" software because these types of negotiations always take time and when they happen at the "last second" there is almost always someone left out of the loop.

This is what happens in my industry, at least.

NASA Tests Aircraft With Shape Shifting Wings

Iniamyen Re:Isn't that what killed Spaceship2 (55 comments)

As I understand, Spaceship 2 didn't use the same technology, and the mechanism of actuation that supposedly caused the crash was initiated by a human, so it wasn't an accidental deployment as far as the craft's systems are concerned.

To make a somewhat haphazard analogy, you're saying that we shouldn't have ABS on vehicles, because there was an instance of someone crashing their car while applying the throttle pedal.
