Torvalds: No Opinion On Systemd

jon3k Re:This thread is only for ignorant argument (284 comments)

If you're another lemming who doesn't understand why there was nothing wrong with init and the problems systemd is trying to "solve" are non-existent and you are informed enough about systemd to actually understand its problems, post below.

Apple Edits iPhone 6's Protruding Camera Out of Official Photos

jon3k Re:Parallax. (392 comments)

Plus, take the images and invert the colors. You can clearly see editing work. Basic Photoshop detection 101. Even more fun when you have a shitty TFT screen that makes every glaring error even more obvious.

Not only is there nothing there when you invert the colors (see here, inverted and zoomed for your viewing pleasure), it's very likely it was a computer generated image and not even a photograph to begin with.


Early iPhone 6 Benchmark Results Show Only Modest Gains For A8

jon3k Re:power consumption? (207 comments)

It's why I never understand comparing Android and iOS benchmarks. We run benchmark software on them, compare the two, then run completely different operating systems and applications on top of them. Android benchmarks routinely show better performance than IOS. But everytime I use an Apple iPhone it "feels faster" and is completely stutter free.

Define decent price? You can get WQHD (2560x1440) 27" IPS A- panels for $400. For example, here's the Monoprice one.

Anand Lal Shimpi Retires From AnandTech

jon3k Re:Really hope the spirit lives on (152 comments)

Absolutely agree and I assume he wouldn't have left unless he felt comfortable that they would continue that tradition. It really comes down to one word, trust. I genuinely trust everything I read on Anandtech.

Coffee Naps Better For Alertness Than Coffee Or Naps Alone

jon3k Re:Employers don't want employees who LOOK lazy. (133 comments)

Depends on the employer. Maybe if you have a bunch of $11/hour monkeys working for you all they care about are butts in seats. My upper management wants to see project deadlines hit. They don't care what or how we get it done.

Ask Slashdot: What To Do About Repeated Internet Overbilling?

jon3k Re:What are you downloading? (355 comments)

One Netflix stream = 5Mb/s = 0.625MB/s * 60 seconds/min * 60 min/hour = 2.19GB/hour

150GB / 2.19GB = 68.5 hours of HD Netflix per month. That's a single user, assuming it's not a family of four, five, etc.

That comes to 1.3 hours per day of Netflix. That doesn't include any web browsing, gaming, nothing else just a SINGLE Netflix user.

I gotta agree. He seems relatively well informed and not full of bs. I enjoyed this.

Pet Peeve. Moore's Law doesn't say "2X the performance". Doubling the number of transistors doesn't equate to 2X the performance.

Amen. This entire thing is the most transparent money grab by ICANN I've ever seen. And that's saying a lot.

Snowden: NSA Working On Autonomous Cyberwarfare Bot

jon3k Re:A digital version of the "Doomsday Machine" (194 comments)

What makes you think the NSA thinks they are the only ones working on this? In fact, wouldn't knowing other countries are working on something similar be even MORE of a reason to build it?

All Your Content Distribution Are Belonw to Akamai

jon3k jon3k writes  |  more than 6 years ago

anonymous dude (691256) writes "Shares of Limelight Networks Inc. are trading down $2.23 (35.01%) to $4.13 this afternoon as the company has lost a patent suit filed by rival Akamai Technologies Inc. Limelight had been doing pretty well, in a sense, having succeeded in knocking two patents off the docket. But a jury ruled today that Limelight violated the remaining patent, No. 6,108,703, titled "Global Hosting System," which covers the basic architecture of a content delivery network.

apache + rsync = lawsuit"
