  1. Oof, that's a bit of a hike from the X-E3... or does this include a lens?
  2. Just out of curiority (the wikipedia page doesn't mention this), is this because ECC ram detects the error and shuts down the system? Bit flips on their own may or may not cause a system crash
  3. Cameras are better than the human eye in many respects while being worse in some others. They're different systems that aren't directly comparable. While of course improvement is almost always possible I think the point of the title is that this camera pretty much has every top feature available on the market while remaining relatively compact compared to a DSLR. Can't wait for this to be like 1200$ used on ebay in 5 years
  4. I use firefox but even if I still used chromium I wouldn't really care, I don't sync my browsers. Also I would be surprised if someone didn't just fork it and add their own sync. It may even be doable through an extension, I'm not sure though.
  5. There used to be a lot more variety but Microsoft pretty much forced all major commercial competitors out of the market. Apple survived because it didn't really directly compete with Microsoft at the time and Linux (and to a lesser extent *bsd) kind of stuck around thanks to a combination of community effort and server space presence. Making something new from scratch with comparable features to any of these major desktop operating systems would be effectively impossible now due to just how much work would be required - only some huge corporation like Google might have the resources to pull it
  6. Oh no that one's real, after all if Bruce Willis didn't stop that asteroid how come we're still alive?
  7. That entirely depends on which direction it would be coming from.
  8. That's not always the case. Still, I have never seen the absolute cheapest thing also be the best.
  9. It's far from an exact science right now, typically successful models are developed by researchers over years of work where they try different techniques to improve their results.
  10. Wait - this is that thing you need to pay to even use your internet connection on an xbox? Starting to sound like a really bad deal to get a console...
  11. An AI is only as good as the humans training it, and as you said yourself...
  12. https://raspberry-projects.com/pi/pi-operating-systems/raspbian/gui/desktop-shortcuts
  13. maybe..? but I really don't see why, it's not illegal in any capacity and it doesn't hurt youtube's revenue...
  14. Kinda weird that these channels would be struck down for "hacking" when there are plenty of channels that show the command line and are doing just fine including some that straight up teach actual hacking for educational purposes like LiveOverflow.
