ACM Blames the PC For Driving Women Away From Computer Science

Kkloe what is computer science nowadays? (329 comments)

I bet back in the days computer science was more of an high engineering education than it is now
that before computer science was for people to be researches in other fields and use computer as a help tool, where now you dont need to go computer science as you can take single courses of math lab or other appropriate language for that field
now computer science is more to learn to program and as now playing games on pc, xbox etc has been a more a normal thing for girls to do than before, the upswing for women in TODAYS computer science will be when the ones born around 2000 will start studying in colleges/universitys

Hacking a Tesla Model S Could Net $10,000 Prize

Kkloe Re:Void warranty (77 comments)

because things that are under warranty have to be replace by the seller, either by providing something that is the same or similiar, like a new model, or money, and you dont want to replace things as a seller because some shit head trimmed his motor until it breaks and wants compensation because he broke it

San Francisco Bans Parking Spot Auctioning App

Kkloe Re:Good luck proving this in a court of law... (404 comments)

there is money involved and people to exploit, you dont need much more for this to happen, probably not so extreme as you put it out, but I would put my bets on that some of those poor sods are going to fist fight one day for a spot to sell just so they can earn that 10$ for drugs/food/rent or whatever

Wikipedia Forcing Editors To Disclose If They're Paid

this is most probably so if editors who are caught doing stuff when being paid for it and not disclosing it can have all that they have done removed without the need to do a investigation if what they wrote is truth or not

Despite Project's Demise, Amazon Web Services Continues To Use TrueCrypt

Kkloe Re:Why should one move from truecrypt 7.1a? (75 comments)

Was it needed in 1979?, only ones I could guess who needed that kind of cryptodisk software would have been governments at most?, as probably most system were closed off and there was no internet to speak of, thus the need for cryptodisk and combined with how slow computers were and the need of disk space thys making cryptodisk deemed a cost that you dont need to put any money into.

Scientists have moved a step closer to achieving sustainable nuclear fusion

Kkloe Kkloe writes  |  about 7 months ago

Kkloe (2751395) writes "US researchers have achieved a world first in an ambitious experiment that aims to recreate the conditions at the heart of the sun and pave the way for nuclear fusion reactors. The scientists generated more energy from fusion reactions than they put into the nuclear fuel, in a small but crucial step along the road to harnessing fusion power. The ultimate goal – to produce more energy than the whole experiment consumes – remains a long way off, but the feat has nonetheless raised hopes that after decades of setbacks, firm progress is finally being made.

In nuclear physics, nuclear fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei collide at a very high speed and join to form a new type of atomic nucleus. During this process, matter is not conserved because some of the mass of the fusing nuclei is converted to photons (energy). Fusion is the process that powers active or "main sequence" stars. -Wiki

Science MIT's artificial leaf is ten times more efficient than the real thing

Kkloe Kkloe writes  |  about 2 years ago

Kkloe (2751395) writes "MIT professor Daniel Nocera claims to have created an artificial leaf, made from stable and inexpensive materials, which mimics nature's photosynthesis process.

The device is an advanced solar cell, no bigger than a typical playing card, which is left floating in a pool of water. Then, much like a natural leaf, it uses sunlight to split the water into its two core components, oxygen and hydrogen, which are stored in a fuel cell to be used when producing electricity."
