Qualcomm Says Eight-Core Processors Are Dumb

vuke69 Re:The Onion said it best (526 comments)

No, it takes like two minutes for me if I'm being extra careful. I have a goatee which admittedly cuts down on the area a bit, but not THAT much. I also use feather blades, which are the sharpest you can get.

I can do my head in about 10 minutes if I hit it with the clippers first.

Server Farms Flourish In Iowa: Microsoft Plows $700M More Into Des Moines

vuke69 Re:$20 million dollar tax incentive (103 comments)

No, it's a completely idiotic point.

It's $20M in taxes that they wouldn't have seen anyhow if the datacenter was built in another state. But the state gains from all the income, sales, property, etc. taxes that the employees pay.

No matter how big the tax break, it's ALWAYS a net gain to the tax base.

You can extrapolate every conceivable point in every conceivable universe from the brownian motion in a very hot cup of tea, restoring the Internet should be trivial; although it may not be quite as you left it.

FCC Moving To Launch Dynamic Spectrum Sharing

vuke69 Re:Perpetual licenses (30 comments)

It should be an upfront cost (auction), that buys you in for 5 years. 6th year is 20% of the original sum, 7th @ 40%, etc... increasing by 20% a year until they either surrender the allocation and walk away, or allow it to go back up for auction where they can bid on a new term.
