I am happy that ARM based chips are doing well and providing a competitive marketplace. On the other hand, the chance that ARMS will be in gaming computers any time soon is a pipe dream. Intel has pushed AMD almost out of the marketplace and is also making strides in energy efficiency. I am not a big Intel fan, but it has to be obvious to anyone the huge lead they have in processing power.
Really, Intel is more energy efficient per watt than ARM chips are at workload. The only place where ARM beats Intel is at idle, where both Intel and AMD are catching up very quickly. Some stuff here and here on it.

I don't see ARM for a gaming based PC anytime soon, it's kind of like cyrix chips back in the 90's, they were for everyone who wanted a simple PC on the cheap.

Tablets are dying, you got it here before it was news!

As incorrect as it is, "I could care less" is an acceptable American colloquialism. It drives English majors crazy but they'll tell you the same thing.
A english professor I had, had an interesting statement on the entire thing. "Don't worry, your average english major is 100 to 200 years behind the times on english. Everything will drive them crazy, and the world will be a better place for it."

Up next, Molyneux debuts the Molyenux box! Where a user is always punished, 8 out of 10 times even if the answer is correct. Can he improve on B.F. Skinner's original idea? Find out next week!

Well it sure as hell isn't working for Europe.
Europe's plan for Austerity. Cut spending by 0.3%, increase spending by 15% yep how's that work? Not very well. That's exactly what they did in Greece and Spain.

Oddly, printing money can help get out of debt. Like you said, it devalues your currency, which means your debt obligations are lower since the debt is now worth less.
Didn't work very well for Zimbabwe either. Or most countries that have an appended "new" to their currency name, Israel being one of the few who's managed to properly fix their currency values.

No it hasn't. Trickle-up economics is what works. If people don't have a disposable income they don't buy anything and it all grinds to a halt. We've cut spending but it's hardly an austerity budget as we're still spending. That and solid regulation is what helped us stave off the disaster the US has seen. Oh yeah, and that regulation that saved our asses was what the PC were trying to gut so we could have more of American style banking system. Thankfully with their then minority they couldn't get it done or we really would be up shit creek right now. How the hell do you think FDR got the US out of the depression? The New Deal didn't just happen magically.
Sure, but here's the thing. The US like Europe are in liquidity traps. Neither the US or Europe have actually cut spending to any manageable level. What you've done is kept spending or actually increased spending, while trimming off the friday night fast food fries from the meal. Then after feeling good from scarfing down the triple decker mc suck burger you went out and bought a $2500 plasma TV. And on saturday, you paid for that TV by shifting your debt across three different credit cards.

FDR didn't get the US out of depression, he lengthened it. WWII got the US out of the depression. Any economist who is actually worth their salt and doesn't suck at the tit of Keynes will tell you the same thing. Keynes has done more damage to the financial system of the last 100 years than anyone else. Before that depressions and recessions were shorter, and harder. There's no shortage of papers on this view either written by Austrian economists.

Oh, and for the record austerity budgets don't work to fix recessions. Never have, never will. It takes money to make money.
Really? Odd how that works, it seems to have done a very good job up here in Canada over and over again. Then again, turning on the printing presses repeatedly is always a great way to devalue your currency and fiscally screw yourselves over the long term.

You don't make money, by bankrupting yourself either.

Maybe they don't see at as a big deal because they just re-elected a president who has promised to reduce it, and laid out a plan on how to do so.
lmao. This is from the same president who said he would cut the deficit from Bush by half in his first term, in his first year by half. Okay there, let me give you a tip. The difference was...Obama's deficit was an increase of 500-600% every year.

If anyone still thought capitalism was good for society... I see this has AT&T, Verizon, et. al. having stolen millions of dollars from their customers for years and now begrudgingly complying with an extremely reasonable request after ignoring it for years. Fuck those assholes.
Protip: Capitalism is good for society. This is a lack of consumer protection laws that americans seem to have a problem with, and laws not protecting consumers.

No, I think he was talking about an iPad version.

Wait, now I know. He was referring about the Ooya version. That must be it.

Yaya you guys, its obvious I'm talking about the Virtual Boy version.
You sure? I thought it was for the C64 and Amiga.
