Inside the Raspberry Pi Factory
I just hopped onto the Raspberry Pi bandwagon. I received two boards over the weekend (made in China) and both can't keep the USB/Ethernet on... I'm the last post in the parent's link....
It's very frustrating (even for an experience electrical and computer engineer) and I hope that they can get their quality control under ... control. I'd hate to see something as awesome as the Raspberry Pi ruined during it's early life because of poor hardware manufacturing.
Without RTFA, I expect this recent post is to get some good PR out about the recent glut of defective boards.
Firefox's Web Push Notification System Announced
Let's hope they push relevant information and not drugs and booze.
A Deep-Dive Look At Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1
But what about the price performance? These devices are all priced at the same level or even above than the iPad. All things being equal, the larger market of the has a network effort bonus that maks the iPad appear more valuable. Even the summary states these tablets are, "every bit as capable", in the technology sense, meaning the tech between the two is basically even.
Once these Android tablets can offer a device cheaper than an iPad, then we can talk about serious competition.
HDMI Brands Don't Matter
The 0s and 1s are still distinguishable because HDMI uses transition minimized differential signaling (TMDS). Basically, noise is picked up on all the wires and therefore can be ignored.
Basically, it's using a form of Low-Voltage Differential Signaling
HDMI Brands Don't Matter
The lazy person's CAT5 to HDMI. This saved me a lot of trouble, and maybe will help you with your rats nest.

Research Finds That Electric Fields Help Neurons Fire
This sounds like local field potentials (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Local_field_potential). Forgive me, but I fail to see how the summary concludes that other radio waves and "electronics" can impact this.
Evolution's Path May Lead To Shorter, Heavier Women
Maybe I should RTFA, but there seems to an obvious bias in this study. Framingham, Mass is cold, maybe women (and men) do better here when they are stockier since they have less surface area to lose body heat from.
Or maybe I am just bitter about the cold weather out here.
Mafia Sinks Ships Containing Toxic Waste
Until you get caught, then cleanup's a bitch.
Outage Knocks Gmail Offline For Many Users
Every post here is hailing IMAP as the solution, yet I have not received one email on my imap account all morning.
I checked gmail.com and all my messages are still waiting for me.
The real solution is to lock your email server in a closet and disconnect it from any network. It's the only way to ensure your email is there.
RAM Disk Puts New Spin On the SSD
I don't know about you but in my computer I only have 2 slots for RAM.
This device makes a lot of sense to me as I have been pining for a DDR2 version of this device for quite some time. Mainly because DDR2 is dirt cheap compared to other memory modules.
A whole lot of nuthin huh, not every story needs to be about the imminent destruction of Earth.
My hats off to the engineers who designed and built the LHC. Over 20 years of work deserves some recognition... Congrats to my particle smashing overlords.
