I dunno.. in my opinion, the iPad doesn't make the greatest skateboard in the world. Seems a little too small for the job.

explanation is that they are generating 10's of billions of records a

month here and a relational database big enough to handle it would be

ridiculously expensive.

See? It's not even that it's too smart or slow, it's just plain expensive.

Re: Matte screens.

I know this may sound stupid, but if the decision comes down to glossy vs. matte, wouldn't it be possible to go with the glossy screen and just get a matte screen protector to cover it?

I wonder if it's kind of like an rsync.

since its probably got batteries inside plus some big transformators inside alloy might not be that appropriate; I'd go with Iron here.

The Netflix on the WII seems to do better over the same WIFI link - as compared to my wifes laptop doing streaming.  Not sure what they did on the WII version (both non-HD quality streams), but the WII seems to buffer better and have less artifacts in the picture.

Eclipse can do that too,

It just uses > 20 times as much memory for that than emacs (or vim)

So... the only difference you see between eclipse and vi is how much memory they use?

So much for elastic.

Not exactly. Any elastic substance has both an elastic modulus and a yield point. ;)

Downtime has been spotty for us today. Mostly our dev environment was affected. Stage and prod stayed up.

Found a thread in the sqlite forums. It sounds like they are bundling a modified version of sqlite, which has sqlite's native buffer/page layer replaced with BDB.

pp you have a point, but the last 12 years of my life live on my landline phone number, and if I can keep it for cheap, I'd like to.
So here's my next scheme which won't pan out.
Skype apparently won't port numbers, you have to use from their list. But skype appears to be the cheapest plan.
30/yr for an incoming phone number. & $3 a month, so anoth $36 a year. So for $66 a year, I can make and get unlimited calls with skype and I don't have to watch magic jack's ads.

Ahhh ,I just found what I was looking for...

So, it turns out that the Lenovo I saw was actually an X100 or X200 series model, which are very expensive.. and since the model I saw wasn't super expensive, it was probably a really stripped down model I wouldn't be happy with. So.. Lenovo is out.

In unrelated, I came across this page:
And the fastest thing in the world (at the moment) is...

PC3-17600 DDR3-SDRAM (triple channel 192-bit) memory clocking in at 52.8 gigabytes per second.
That's so insane it's funny.

I meantt o ask, so it doesn't do outgoing calls? I guess I don't need that, just to keep the number.
And where is this great service of yours, what's it called again?

That's correct -- there are limits on the physical dimensions of the display, for example. They seem pretty intent on making sure the Atom is only used in mobile devices. I'm guessing they'll make exceptions for vendors like Sea Micro if they feel that the vendor would otherwise go with ARM for their application ... either that or Sea Micro is just buying the chips without the same kind of discounts that Dell and HP are getting.

Now that I think about it, there's really no reason why a home server needs to be x86-based. Most families just need them to be file servers and Internet gateways, which will run just fine on ARM. Even in a highly automated home like mine which adds things like X-10 and Asterisk, there's nothing that won't run on ARM with a mere recompile.

Hmm. ARM or Atom CPU, plus disks that spin down when not in use ... I'd really like that.
