Apple: Dumb As a Patent Trolling Fox On iPhone Prior Art?

Kkloe Re:Except much of the time they're right... (408 comments)

Even if things are painfully obvious there is no guarantee that they are the first choice of use, or the best. And then there is that you have to show which one is best to convince the backward people who claims another inferior way is better because they always have done it that way/always been like that. I would guess people like you are one of them. But that is just a guess and I guess we will need a study to show that or is it painfully obvious?

Yik Yak, After Complaints From Schools, Suspends Its Service In Chicago

Kkloe Re:anonymization (167 comments)

It may be so, but you can see how good it works with being anonymous for the people it should protect when in fact it doesn't because people are jerks when they think they can get away with it.

Kkloe Re:Windows Phone (333 comments)

What kind of functionality do you mean?
I have a 2 year LG and and a S4, beside apps like chat/pic apps or games I cant see that I need more apps coming with the phone, maybe you are comparing the 400$ phones with the 100$ where they cram in android 2.3 or something

Engineers Invent Acoustic Equivalent of One-Way Glass

Kkloe Re:Applications? (114 comments)

well for motorways because its probably cheaper to block it one way than both, say it costs 1000 to set up a concrete wall for blocking sound from both sides, but it costs 650 with this new type of wall, but doing it both sides would cost 1200, so its cheaper one way than two airplanes, did it even say where?, no, it could be around the engines or from the outside to the inside, was it that hard to understand?

Kkloe Re:More reprsentative stats please (390 comments)

Facebook Being Sued Over Mining of Private Messages

Kkloe Re:When private does not mean private (170 comments)

what?, do you even know how to make a analogy that has to do with the topic? it would be more like you advertise free lunch, people eat the free lunch, then you sell the information about the lunch, like did the person like it, how long did it take to eat it, did the person eat all, did he prefer lunch option a or b etc...

Scientists have moved a step closer to achieving sustainable nuclear fusion

Kkloe Kkloe writes  |  about 2 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 a year and a half 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."
