US's Most Powerful Nuclear Bomb Being Dismantled

bredk Re:9 Megatons (299 comments)

For the record, it's also only the most powerful in current inventory. The Castle bravo device was detonated with an estimated yield of 15 Megaton. The most powerful in the world is also still Tsar Bomba (50 megaton dialed down. Design yield was 100 megaton plus, but was not tested due to concerns of fallout).

Why Flash Is Fundamentally Flawed On Touchscreen Devices

bredk Re:That's okay... (521 comments)

The reason why Apple does not want flash is simple. They would not be able to control the influx of rich applications and games. 30% of paid apps is a great deal of money. Why make people just visit a web page when they want to play a game?
