    DIMAnirban reacted to Electronics Wizardy in How do different users work?   
    Kernel gives each user different access to the system.
     
    The all share the drive, and every file and folder has permissions to tell it who can access the file and what they can do it it.
     
    You can also limit max processes, ram usage, cpu usage and other things by user.

    Oh man, I'm sorry that THAT was your first encounter with the forum. I've been here for a while, and though I don't post often, the community is really good, well, mostly. Anyhoo, welcome, and I hope you make some new friends here!!

    DIMAnirban reacted to dizmo in Anybody here from St. John's Newfoundland?   
    I've always wanted to go back east, but then I look at the flight costs and I can fly abroad for (generally) less money.
    One day.
    I'd be surprised if anyone is from there, but who knows!

    DIMAnirban reacted to Dujith in How does laptop knows the lid is Closed or Open?   
    Almost all of the time its a magnetic switch that reacts to a magnet in the bezel.
    You can try this out by getting a magnet (small one is enough) and move it around your laptop surface.
     
    And dont worry this is not a troll attempt to kill your laptop

    So, Burger king used the "OK, Google" feature and kind of hijacked the feature to their own advantage.
    There was a TV ad which was fifteen seconds long and it exploited the fact that anybody could trigger the "Ok Google" feature on an android phone.
    Here's the ad which was used.

    It's sure to say that Google was not pleased with this, and has issued a server side update to remove the Burger King recording which the assistant would read out (Which would include the ingredients from the Wikipedia page, which of course people tried to vandalise, and some were even successful to an extent)
     
    According to the article, now, the ad would still trigger the Google Home but the assistant would not trigger a voice response, instead it would just go back to sleep.
    However, if an user asked specifically what a whopper burger is, it would still give a voice response. 
     
    Idk, what do you guys think about this whole thing?

    guys... 100% this is not a ploy to make people realize their phone is always listening, this is just another horseshit marketing tactic BK is using to avoid paying for longer/better adverts and to try and force consumer interaction. 
    the upside is that if theres pr fallout over them hijacking phones they can fall back on the whole "we're just trying to make you aware of your own security!" gimmick. Its pathetic, honestly. It doesnt take a genius to see it.

    So AMD's new graphics cards are here, and they are pretty sick... But what's even more sick than hearing about a new graphics card? Owning one for yourself!

    Aw yeah man, we are giving away one Polaris 10 video card and one Polaris 11 video card thanks to our good friends over at AMD.
     
    So, how do you enter to win one of these fine graphics cards?
     
    1. Post a comment below telling us what graphics card you're using in your rig and why you want an upgrade to AMD's Polaris lineup. The two winners will be selected at random, so no, the content of your comment doesn't REALLY matter, but this is more fun than seeing 800 posts of "I want it" or "gibe nao pls." One comment (entry) per user.
     
    2. Check back here in about a week when the names of our two winners will be added to the OP (giveaway execution is an art not a science people, so I apologize in advance if winners aren't announced in exactly one week).
     
    3. Check your inbox here on the forum to make sure you didn't miss it. Our winners' usernames will be added to the OP here, so if you have any question about the legitimacy of a congratulatory message regarding this giveaway, please be sure to check back here and see if your name has been added.
     
    And, while this isn't a requirement, feel free to give our friends over at @AMDRadeon on Twitter a follow.
     
    Winners will be PMed from this account on the forum. Please do not consider winner messages from any other user in regards to this giveaway.
     
    This giveaway is worldwide with no age restriction.
     
    Best of luck to all!!
