Re: The problem is …
Square-shaped iPod Nano with a strap did almost everything useful that Apple Watch can do.
At that rate, we could colonize Mars within the next hundred years, strap some ion engines onto Phobos, and stabilize the orbit indefinitely. Then use it as a launch pad or space elevator type of thing.
Didn't see that coming? AMD's Bulldozer "modules" have been long known to be ineffective, similar or worse to half the number of Intel cores. They are abandoning the CMT/module concepts for Zen, and claim to be able to improve IPC by 40%.
Watson is looking more like a desperate bluff than genius strategy. If only it worked well and didn't cost so much, they wouldn't have to spend billions to coax an A.I. revenue stream into existence.

Care to revise that statement?

No portable consumer fusion reactors, no flying cars, no hoverboards.
We take everything they throw at us.
Re: Would that be...
I doubt anybody has a comprehensive list of reasons why Theresa May needs to retire. The list is just too long.
Reg readers might also hope Samsung's research isn't particularly successful, on grounds that anything with the potential to retard the rise of a middle class in the nations mentioned above makes for less-vigorous potential export markets.
Worstall. Worstall. Worstal.
Apple should settle with University of Wisconsin, up the award to $250 million, and spin it for PR.

It's not an autonomous vehicle. It's a "keep your hands on the wheel but become more easily distracted and face peril since it's only semi-autonomous" vehicle.
Re: @ fruitoftheloon @Charles Manning: Net anarchist?
True, but presumably you don't put your white spirit/meths/cellulose thinners into coke bottles and leave then in school playgrounds to see what happens?
Maybe he should be doing that, but that would be littering.
So is leaving only USB sticks around, only something that could get lost in the laundry is more innocuous than bottles.
Re: Net anarchist?
He's no criminal vandal. Don't plug in strange USB sticks and you'll be just fine.
Time to invent a new ebook format with embedded popup 3D VR images. And $12 a book.

Soon, participating in medical care will be like gambling on the state of security systems. Lose just once and you are an open book.

Re: Will it work with blonde people?
The claim sounded a lot better before they were punted off the crowdbeg platform.
They should license the techniques and balloons so that others can undertake the fun process of negotiating with the FAA and launching airborne ISPs.

Quick, disguise all traffic as Netflix!
Memristors, The Machine, 3D printers...
If Dell starts making big promises like HP, that's the time to start worrying.
every ISP improved its speed
Does that have an effect on Australians who are not using Netflix?
Crossbar is looking dead in the water.
HP will finally get to build The Machine... in 3 years maybe.
What happens to HP and Hynix?
Re: Throttling problem!
Slow as *uck throttled, eh? It's the 10th iteration of the product and CPU performance is 70% better than its predecessor. Well, your mileage may vary on the 70%... but how fast did you want your fondler to be?
Did you just marathon some Cleese?

Re: Advertising and image building
Russia plays well with China and would do well to co-lead with them. Both Russia and China are projecting military power within their spheres of influence.
China has had more success in punishing Western tech companies like Qualcomm and Google, since everyone wants a piece of that market. Russia's data localization laws could help it to get a grip on these companies. Russia has indeed followed the EU's lead and taken on Google:
Russia has Yandex and a space industry, so a satellite Internet scheme might be possible.
It could be a good way to extract more money from pirate sites within Russia's sphere of influence.

Came here to quote that. I think it's a misprint by El Reg.

Re: Nice to see...
The highest capacity MicroSD cards are 200 GB from SanDisk, and an announced but impossible to find 512 GB MicroSD card from Microdia. Full-sized SD cards haven't reached 1 terabyte as far as I know, just 512 GB.
So the odds are not good that 2TB MicroSD cards will be pretty cheap or exist in six months time.
"Fatter" does not mean "better".
Higher watt-hours per unit of mass or volume means better. The energy density of the batteries used in smartphones will increase over time, and will at least double over the next decade.
1. The chip makers aren't in charge of making batteries.
2. The phone manufacturers will use better batteries if they are produced.
MediaTek claims that the 10-core, 3-cluster design results in 30% less power consumption over a similar 8-core, 2-cluster design. Such a large improvement would be easy to test once the chips are available.
