Edward Snowden Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize

Jerom Re:Nice (719 comments)

Oh please, you just sound like a retard who knows nothing outside of the US when making statements like that. And the focus on "race" is also a typical US thing. What about a female president or a gay one or even an atheist one?

Belgium has a gay prime minister who is the son of two Italian immigrants.
Germany has a female chancellor.
Great Britain had a female prime minister decades ago.
I can't count the number of countries that have atheist prime ministers/presidents.

There a dozens of other examples if you care to search for them. None of which make those leaders eligible for a Nobel Peace prize.

Yeah but the US president deserves a nobel peace prize just because he's black? What an achievement!

USA! USA! USA!

Motorola To Buy PDA-Inventor Psion For $200 Million

Jerom Re:I have the kiss of death for awesome technology (144 comments)

I would still pay good money for an up to date pda with a psion 5 series form factor. I loved the shape when closed (could slide into a pocket easily), and the ergonomy of the keyboard.

IKEA Announces Furniture With Integrated TV, Speakers, and Blu-ray

Jerom Re:I don't want a combination fridge/TV set (163 comments)

Hey, I'd love a TV / microwave combo! It would take up about the space of an old CRT, so it would be "compatible" with my old furniture!

Coming to think of it. A TV / mini-fridge combo would be awesome too.

Does anyone know if someone makes those?

Jerom Re:dongle (635 comments)

I have seen setups where the dongle contains a processor and code (quite a library actually) - the software then calls this dongle to perform certain critical calculations. Quite hard to hack if the algorithm is unknown...

US Sentinel Drone Fooled Into Landing With GPS Spoofing

Jerom Re:Damn that's stupid (647 comments)

Yes, the problem is that you need to integrate this measured acceleration TWICE (once to get speed, second time to get location) and this is a ridiculously error prone (well the process of integrating in itself is simple enough, the problem lies in the accumulation of errors) in any kind of real world system.

HP relaunches HP 15C

Jerom Jerom writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Jerom (96338) writes "The HP 15c, back by popular demand!

HP reintroduced the HP 15c Scientific Calculator, first launched in 1982. The 15c is one the most advanced scientific calculators in the HP line-up and an essential tool for scientists and engineers. Also featuring RPN entry, the 15c is programmable and offers built in support for complex numbers, matrix math, numeric integration and root solving.

Discontinued in 1989, the HP 15c has lived on as a mobile app. For a limited time, HP is making the 15c available with its same intelligent design, but with 100 times faster processing speed than the original.

More information about the rich history of the HP 12c and 15c calculators is available at www.thenextbench.com."
