Intel's Haswell-E Desktop CPU Debuts With Eight Cores, DDR4 Memory

dugancent Re:*drool* (179 comments)

You're not the only one. Im chugging along with a c2d from 2008. I can get at least another three years out of this, if not more. Speed brings nothing to table in personal computing anymore (outside of gaming and i'm not and have been a gamer).

Why Chinese Hackers Would Want US Hospital Patient Data

dugancent Re:uh-huh (171 comments)

What the insurance gets billed and what they pay is rarely close. If they get billed $1,000,000 for a transplant, they might pay $250,000.

Are Altcoins Undermining Bitcoin's Credibility?

dugancent Re:hilarious (267 comments)

I know that. You asked who the main investor was, not who it was owned by.

Are Altcoins Undermining Bitcoin's Credibility?

dugancent Re:...because they can. (267 comments)

Sure. You can print/mint any currency you want, as long as it's not meant to pose as federal reserve currency. There is nothing illegal about it.

Are Altcoins Undermining Bitcoin's Credibility?

dugancent Re:Hate to be the one to point this out... (267 comments)

The definition of marketing:

  noun
the action or business of promoting and selling products or services, including market research and advertising.

I don't see the word bullshit, or any synonym of it. Therefore it is not "by definition".

dugancent Re:Meanwhile the general public in London... (113 comments)

Big Bang Actors To Earn $1M Per Episode

dugancent Re:that's some expensive laughtrack (442 comments)

I've seen the show in person, there are indeed people there laughing. It's no secret there are paid people mixed into the crowd to get them going. Very few sitcoms use laugh tracks, they use professional audience members.
