    “Flippy,” the Fast Food Robot, Turned Off for Being Too Slow

    If what you were saying were true, we wouldn't so heavily use automation in the auto industry. It's simply a matter of someone building a system that works effectively and efficiently. It's definitely doable, someone just has to make the leap first.

    Bride Ordered to Pay Photographer $89k for Posting Nasty Reviews

    No, you worked with an amateur photographer who didn't know better. The reason professional photographers do not provide raws/negatives as practice is that it is not representative of their work. Unedited photos are absolutely nothing like edited photos. In the digital age, I'm not going to...

    CenturyLink Claims There's no Way They Committed Billing Fraud

    U.S. Flight Regulators Consider Whether To Allow Or Bar In-Flight Wi-Fi Calls

    Things are not often designed securely in things like you probably worked on because there was no requirement or money to implement it. As for the data we're talking about here.. that data is readily available if you have any gps chip. It's not incredibly difficult data to get, you could get...

    Star Citizen Squadron 42 Delayed

    All the people with very hardline opinions on this either really don't understand their studio wasn't fully staffed until like a year and half ago, or have no concept of development pipelines. The reason for the delay was he doesn't want to show the SQ42 campaign until at least one chapter of...

    Introducing Cerberus, The SFF mATX Chassis From Kimera Industries

    This looks great, you guys have done a great job. I've been following the development since the original thread came out. I'm curious though, do you have any preliminary numbers of how quiet we can expect the case to be (both ATX power supply and non?) like? I know that's largely a "it...

    What Microsoft Plans To Do With Display Scaling

    People aren't bitching about DPI scaling on 20 year old games. The hardware is completely irrelevant. DPI scaling in OSx works on non Apple devices. It is fucking annoying that DPI scaling doesn't work on say.. steam. Yet it works in OSX (I run both win10 and osx). Win10 is better, but there...

    Pirates Fail To Prevent $38 Billion Box Office Record

    Reuters Issues Worldwide Ban On RAW Photos

    The point of raw is you can choose to adjust exposure and other values that the camera was set to apply to the image at the point of capture. This means that the image sensor's unmanipulated data is available. You can retain more accuracy and fix incorrect exposure settings that would...

    Fallout 4 Reviews Have An Embargo On An Embargo

    I don't think its unreasonable to have reviews delayed until right before. The longer period copies are floating out there, the more likely one is to get leaked and end up torrented. It also creates a long period of time where the only reviews are the 'professional' reviewers. Honestly I take...

    Emergency-Number Hack Bypasses Android Lock Screen

    This is a hack. Going on a rampage at people who say LOL I HACKED YOUR FACEBOOK by sitting at your computer when you didn't have it locked is understandable. This is a legitimate exploit. In the computer security context, a hacker is someone who seeks and exploits weaknesses in a computer...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Essentially the unladen retaliator is a retaliator without any modules. The normal retaliator has bomb modules in front and rear. The front holds 4 torpedoes, the rear holds 2 torpedoes. If you were to buy them, they are 75/50 respectively (no LTI). They put LTI on the hull, probably because...

    In Wake Of Hack, No Federal Background Checks

    The worst part is the fact that the clearance forms have your family member's addresses names etc... So anyone with that data can cross reference that with training data acquired and use it to strong arm people with classified info. This is a real big shit show.
