    mcraftax reacted to ravenshrike in Threadripper: The inside story   
    https://www.forbes.com/sites/antonyleather/2017/09/05/amd-ryzen-threadripper-the-fascinating-story-behind-the-processor-that-beat-intel/#7fcdeb25230c
     
     
    TL;DR A bunch of computer enthusiasts got bored and decided to whip up a competitor to Intel's EXTREME edition CPUs in their spare time. This is quite frankly hilarious given how badly it has discombobulated Intel.

    mcraftax reacted to Enderman in Tasla Lifts software Battery Capacity Cap in times of crisis   
    Pretty sure that the extra 15kWh is not for "pricier trim levels" it is for reducing battery wear by increasing the minimum charge level.
    If you don't fully discharge lithium batteries you can increase their lifespan of charge cycles.
     
    It would also be a complete waste of money to build cars with 75kWh packs and then limit them through software.
    Lithium batteries are not cheap and expendable.
     
    EDIT- i was wrong

    mcraftax reacted to LAwLz in In memory of Bruno Gulotta of Tom's Hardware Italty   
    These attacks are not organized on "extremist sites". They are often organized by people talking to each other in person, or over phone calls made with burner phones. 
    Blocking sites won't help.

    mcraftax reacted to Sauron in The right to be forgotten   
    This would actually be really good, but it goes against everything they're trying to promote on the encryption front...

    mcraftax reacted to Misanthrope in The right to be forgotten   
    In the UK you say? Does this mean I have the right to be forgotten from all of the government snooping databases? Or is this just a crappy loophole to protect high profile rich guys from embarrassment?

    mcraftax reacted to Lurick in FCC determining US IPs don't have to provide hardline?   
    And if they go this route they'll be asking in a couple years why the US is so far behind in everyone else technologically.

    Definitely swap out the PSU.
    I dropped the RAM down to 16GB and you can always add more later.

    mcraftax reacted to LAwLz in UK home secretary Amber Rudd thinks real people don't care about encryption   
    True, but if you asked a "real person" if they cared whether or not ISIS extremists can read their messages then I think all of them will suddenly be very eager to have encryption.
  12. Agree
    mcraftax reacted to paddy-stone in UK home secretary Amber Rudd thinks real people don't care about encryption   
    I love the way they keep moving the goalposts, saying that the snoopers charter that came into being, had to come in to "fight the terrorist threats".
    Not that anyione with a grain of common sense believed them.. Now we get told that encryption is the devil and so on and so forth.
    Our shitty government is erroding all of our rights, slowly but surely (actually not that slowly either).

    Stupid. The people who started WannaCry should have this done to them, not the guy who saved thousands (I think) of computer's lives.

    mcraftax reacted to ChineseChef in 'Anonymous' browsing data can be easily exposed, researchers reveal   
    Really we need some mega group to legally acquire as much of this kind of data as possible.  And just start sending people letters at home with a full record of everything they did online.  Send it to politicians, local leaders.  Start a website that just lists everyone by name with everything they do/have done.  Make it as public as possible.
     
    That way people actually take it serious.  Start sending people emails with the their records, call them on the phone and ask them about something they did, make it as in your face as they can.  Start calling law makers spouses, asking what they think about their partner visiting porn sites, and the type of porn.  Make billboards stating that congress person X likes these types of porn.
     
    Then we might finally get some change in the way things are done.  Though more likely they will just make it illegal to talk about our dear leaders that way.

    mcraftax reacted to vanished in 'Anonymous' browsing data can be easily exposed, researchers reveal   
    I have a feeling that a lot of the bad decisions that are made are made because they don't understand the issue, but as soon as something impacts them personally, they'll suddenly realize what people are talking about and why it matters.

    mcraftax reacted to GoodBytes in Company to chip employees   
    I don't see any advantage of this over a normal RFID cards. RFID card needs to replaced every couple of years. so you'll need an operation each time. RFID standard and tech changes over time, so you'll need an operation each time. (let alone a system got compromised and the bank/office changes the technology to newer versions) If that is the future in payment and everything, then expect criminals to cut off your hand. Can't wait someone to give them your their hacked phone to check out something or you hold something and clones the RFID chip. Much secure. How many RFID you'll need under the skin? One for each credit card, one for the office, one for your car, one for the points card at the super market.... I think you get the picture. No idea on the long term impact on the body for everyone. Implanting foreign object in the body doesn't have any guaranty that no reaction will take place.
