Comment Re:An allegation has been made. (Score 0) 904

I'm inclined to reserve judgement until an accusation becomes a lawsuit and is litigated

Strange, as a 6'2" fugly hetro alpha male, I'm half tempted to apply for a position in this man's org and ask him if he's DTF in the interview. Then, on the way out of the interview, hug him for a little too long instead of shaking his hand.

He couldn't care less about you or I or how well we are employed. Neither can anyone else in his administration. Don't fool yourself into thinking that is a good thing. It's not. It's only going to hurt us more and more each day it goes on. It's going to hurt the prestige of the nation. It's going to hurt the economic prospects going forward. It's going to affect each and everyone of us in subtle and not so subtle ways. It already has.

My employers solution to this issue:

Fire all of the US staff and massively expand the branch in India. My last day is Feb 7th after 13 years on the job. Thanx Don!

Just a reminder,

Expect media outlets whose owners will benefit financially from Tesla's success to report this in a positive light and pimp it hard.

Expect media outlets whose owners will benefit financially from Tesla's failure to report this in a negative light, bury it, or begin advertising sponsored competitor's autopilot as being superior.

Does anyone have a working link to the actual report? It was supposed to be at static.nhtsa.gov/odi/inv/2016/INCLA-PE16007-7876.PDF

Comment Re:50 Watts, huh? (Score 4, Insightful) 53

So, does the sound system consume 50 watts of power in operation, or is it capable of converting 50 watts of power into sound?

Uncle Doug explains it pretty well.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

TLDW... Input 1k signal. Plug amp into a load with a known resistance. Turn up volume till it is max volume distortion free. Measure voltage to the load. P=V^2/R. This will give you RMS output.

Comment Re:512TB of address space means nothing (Score 2) 125

Most high end GPU cards available have 8Gb, a large number of budget versions settle for 4Gb, and only a few offer 16Gb. Marketing this as a stand out point is iffy.

What you will find is that most cards have only a fraction of their RAM as addressable, so a 16GB card either 4 or 8 gigs addressable. The increase to 512GB is a godsend to AI researchers and other fields with large datasets.
