Quad-Core Mobile Chips Wasted On Mobiles?

ToasterofDOOM Re:Save power? (336 comments)

The problem is, the simpler the application, the less it benefits from parallelization. So long as serial applications don't take a serious performance hit this is a good idea.

ToasterofDOOM Mobile Grid Computing! (336 comments)

Folding@Phone. What could be more obvious??? It would also offer an incentive to manufacturers to provide longer lasting batteries!

Tennessee Bill Helps Teachers Challenge Evolution

ToasterofDOOM Re:And I pray the opposite... (735 comments)

I was only thinking in terms of lab experiments, but yeah domestication can be seen as a sort of guided evolution. Chickens, among others, are so separated from their wild predecessors that they wouldn't do very well in the wild. Bananas, cows, etc. ... the list goes on.

Tennessee Bill Helps Teachers Challenge Evolution

ToasterofDOOM Re:And I pray the opposite... (735 comments)

WHY, pray tell, does there have to be a conflict? And, by the way, evolution of simple organisms is observable and repeatable.

Tennessee Bill Helps Teachers Challenge Evolution

ToasterofDOOM Re:Be careful what you wish for... (735 comments)

This is exactly what I thought. In theory it allows science teachers to teach science freely but, of course, it will be used by many science teachers to proselytize schoolchildren. I'm glad when I was in school evolution was taught as science and not preached. ID deserves nothing past a mention in a SCIENCE classroom, not because it is harmful or silly, just because it is not SCIENCE. Secondly, as a practicing Baptist in Georgia, I have been able to reconcile my faith with evolution (and the Big Bang for that matter.) I honestly hate how some people (a loud minority in my experience) feel the need to invent conflict.

Gaming Mouse Changes Shape For a Custom Fit

ToasterofDOOM Re:Setup (156 comments)

Stiffer soles make for better power transfer, it's an efficiency thing. Then again your idea WOULD be super light and some people get a serious hard on for super low stack height.

Gaming Mouse Changes Shape For a Custom Fit

ToasterofDOOM Re:Setup (156 comments)

As a cyclist and a nerd, I ogle at shoes with heat moldable carbon fiber soles, etc, which would be a cool idea for this. I'd love to see a CF mouse - just not the pricetag. Also the logistics of popping a mouse in an oven might pose a slight problem...

Gaming Mouse Changes Shape For a Custom Fit

ToasterofDOOM Re:Setup (156 comments)

Best feature of this mouse appears to be the cord. I love all the razer mice I've used but with friends we've lost at least 3 to frayed cords. There's probably another issue there but honestly that detail really pleases me. As for the mouse as a whole ... I'll have to try it to pass judgment, until then it looks absolutely ridiculous.
