Prototype Volvo Flywheel Tech Uses Car's Wasted Brake Energy

vivek7006 Re:mass in motion (262 comments)

Car makers need to think outside the box. An average American car-driver is a fat-ass. Just figure out a way to convert all the potential energy stored in drivers fat ass/belly and convert it to kinetic energy, it will kill 2 birds with one stone

Feds Now Oppose Aereo, Rejecting Cloud Apocalypse Argument

vivek7006 Re:Just Sad (140 comments)

Windows 7 Media Center rocks. Highly recommended. Plus it supports premium cable via cable card. Comcastic douche in my area even give a $2 refund for not using their crappy STB. The only thing I lose is VOD, but I don't give a shit since Netflix and Amazon Prime via Roku is 10 times better than their comcastic service

Google Halts Sales of HP's USB-Charging Chromebook 11 Over Overheating

vivek7006 Screw HP. Acer chromebook based off Haswell rocks (57 comments)

I own both ARM based Samsung Chromebook and the newer Haswell Chromebook. Based on my experience, ARM Chromebooks are now dead on arrival thanks to Haswell. Haswell powered chromebooks are offering better battery life, superior performance and same price point ($249). My Samsung Chromebook struggles while playing 1080p youtube videos, Netflix HD videos and amazon prime videos. If you have more than 4 tabs open, things get excruciatingly slow. Contrast this with Acer Haswell Chromebook, its super fast, even with a dozen tabs open. I have thrown everything at it including 1080p youtube videos, CPU intensive flash based games (for e.g. cricket), it never struggled. Haswell and very soon Baytrail powered Chromebooks make ARM chips DOA as far as chromebooks are concerned.

Stephen Elop Would Pull a Nokia On Microsoft

vivek7006 Whoa (292 comments)

He is a double agent! He tricked Microsoft into believing that he was their agent working for them to run down Nokia, all the while he was really working for Google! This could be the plot of a new Mission Impossible movie, Tom Cruise playing Elop?

Ask Slashdot: Best Software For Med-School Note-Taking?

vivek7006 Use paper and pen. Scan later to pdf (217 comments)

Especially with all the drawings/figures and equations, its best to use paper and pen. Buy a good quality scanner and scan all your notes into pdf at the end of the day. Tablets/laptops jdont work because they actually slow you down. Also, I feel that taking notes with pen/paper help me stay focused during lectures

vivek7006 Re:A tablet isn't a PC. That's the point. (246 comments)

If battery life is really important to you the Pro probably isn't your best bet. About 5 hours is pretty accurate

That problem should get solved with Haswell ULT chips in next generation Surface. (Based on MacBook Air review)
