    Which Programming Language Pays the Best?

    I personally know obj c/swift devs making close to 300k a year. One of them is a high school dropout. Skill and ones ability to market themselves are the only things that matter.

    Which Programming Language Pays the Best?

    Nope, nope, nope. Nope. Small shop actually, < 20 devs. I'm not going to advertise my location, but it's not hard to figure out.

    Which Programming Language Pays the Best?

    ^ Not really. I pull 90k working on a SaaS web application that is written primarily in PHP and Javascript (with some services in NodeJS). I'm not even a senior or lead developer either.

    Russia Plans Replacing Intel and AMD Chips with Domestic Brand

    This has far more to do with domestic production and economic reasoning more than anything else. Put away the tin foil hats, there is no conspiracy here.

    The “Strong Smell” Of Fraud From One Bitcoin Miner Maker

    So I can get people to throw money at me simply by making a website with some nice looking pictures and a spec sheet that is totally made up?

    Is vapor-x worth the premium price?

    one of the things i like about vapor-x cards is they're quiet running @ stock. if silence is your thing, cards that come with a non-stock cooler + o/c'd are nice.

    Why should tax payers pay to subsidize something that corporations seem to have no problem paying for? 'Liberals :rolleyes:

    Intel Haswell Refresh Price List?

    Nope. They are reaching the limits of transistor gate length, which is what really determines how fast a CPU can get. If these get any smaller, electrons will leak from the emitter to the collector and there will be no voltage at the base. Unless the scientists come up with some revolutionary...

    trading a 3g hd7970 for gtx 680 2gb

    The only reason I'm making this trade is because a) i don't care about bitcoin, and b) i want to use 3d vision with my 144hz asus monitor. my only question is whether or not the 2gb of ram will hurt my performance on a 1080p monitor. (i know for regular gaming, it doesn't matter).

    Why I Walked Out On Apple

    this. literally. i could take off my pants then take a big crap on the floor in my office and walk out. 200 miles away I'd be hired in less than a week of looking for a job because of how in demand my skill set it (similar to what this guy does, but i'm not a pretentious d-bag like him).

    The Rise and Rise of JavaScript

    and then... My guess is you're uber paranoid about your privacy and just wish all these websites would stop using JS because it's hampering your experience with the web. Hold on a second, let this sink in, it's not going anywhere. If anything, it's going to become more prevalent with the...

    The Age Of The iPod Is Over

    I own a Fiio X3 which plays 196k/24bit FLAC files and has a 24bit DAC + preamp built in for my nice headphones. People always ask me why I'm not using my phone and then I play some high-resolution album on my $500 headphones - they respond, 'oh...'

    I'm not sure why this is so hard for you to understand, directly from their FAQ: What is so hard to understand in the statement, 'these products are not supported'?

    iFixit Mac Pro Teardown

    I'm not sure if you're trolling or are really this ignorant. Autocad won't support consumer level cards on Mac, Windows, or Unix. It doesn't matter what platform you're working on.

    iFixit Mac Pro Teardown

    Also, hit up AutoCADs website, you won't find them recommending any consumer level cards. They flat out will not support them. This is universal across any platform btw, sure, you can run Maya with an integrated Intel chipset - but why would you?

    iFixit Mac Pro Teardown

    Back to this argument again? Overpricing? It's not like Apple dictates how much workstation class GPUs cost, are you suggesting Apple gets a 50% discount and just amps the price up because people will pay it? I'm not aware of any Windows/Unix apps that *require* workstation class cards...

    Chromebooks Outsold Apple's MacBooks In 2013

    I'm not aware of any manufacturer that will honor a warranty after you've opened it and broke the seal. Most of the ultrabooks I've seen don't have a user serviceable battery either. Anyways, you seriously just compared a AMD ultrabook against a machine with nearly 2x the computing power and 2x...

    In this particular scenario if they were hit in the head with a rMBP their head would sustain more damage than the machine.

    HP Laying Off Another 5,000 Employees

    HP does a lot more than just build consumer level PCs. They do printers, ink, servers, and a full-fledged server OS - that from my understanding - runs on some of our newest nuclear subs.

    nothing quite like leveraging a little Diety to screw someone over. Insurance is a fraud, I personally think it's awesome that our (US) government is mandating that we have it.

    UPS And FedEx Buckled Under Holiday Load

    ITT: people who didn't bother reading the fine print. Both UPS/FedEx have clauses stating that shipment's can be delayed between something like the 10th through the 26th without renumeration (or something to that effect). You agreed to it when you shipped your package (and so did whatever...

    I'm going to call BS on this. The precise reason that standards form is because of superior hardware and software. Nobody is going to use software that is garbage unless they're stuck in the past. I know some shops that still use Quark, and it works for them because some of the old geezers...
