    “I.VR-Zone shares rumor: Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 1GB /

    I guess they were just on sale for a few weeks.

    I will wait for the black friday or boxing day sale myself 🙂

    “Microsoft has been late to the game in crucial modern technologies like mobile, search, media, gaming and tablets. It has even fallen behind in Web browsing, a market it once ruled with an iron fist.”

    Two remarks:

    One: nothing new in that article. Thad had already been reported.

    Two: ” It has even fallen behind in Web browsing, a market it once ruled with an iron fist.” … and which gave them lots of enemies

    “Experiments like Courier (tablets), HailStorm/Passport (digital identity), and Windows Media Center (content in the cloud) show the company was ahead of the game in many areas — but then it either failed to bring those products to market, or didn’t execute.”

    -> It shows how impopular MS has always been.
    MS’s “iron fist” was counteractive every time people had a choice.

      Ahh, the daily anti-MS propaganda. What would I do without the internet.

      /[< MS's "iron fist" was counteractive every time people had a choice. <]/ Or, could be that MS has successes, and unlike other companies' successes, everybody feels the need to use the sucessful MS products. Versus a few rich people just giving a certain company insane profits with little market share. I get sick of this debate, believe me, but it seems if MS has a success it is simply rationalized as people "being forced to use the stuff", so you can stay in your "everything MS does, sucks" world without too much destabilizing rational and critical thinking. I mean, my perspective is no less valid than yours, but you have no room in your head for the possibility you are wrong. At least I consider the possibility that may be the case for anything I think.

    “MS offering free hard drive with Win 7 Pro upgrade”

    Depends on how they offer it.
    There’s lost of paid downloaded software on my hd, which makes it uninteresting to switch the hd. It’s risky business.

      • derFunkenstein
      • 9 years ago

      Yes, I’m sure you’ve never backed anything up.

        • PeterD
        • 9 years ago

        Backing up doesn’t always do the trick.

          • bottlenecker
          • 9 years ago

          Agreed. I once told my wife to back that thang up. She didn’t do the trick either.

    Give the irresponsible government an “internet kill switch” when responsible citizens get a “government kill switch”….

      • PrincipalSkinner
      • 9 years ago

      From your mouth to God’s ears. 🙂

      • jdaven
      • 9 years ago

      And I guess you label yourself and others that carry your point of view a “responsible citizen” and those who don’t aren’t.

      What a joke!

      • burntham77

      Keep bettering yourself.

    Odd that your link to C|Net points to Intel helping China gain a supercomputer crown, while the C|Net article itself is titled “NVidia helps China to supercomputer crown.”

    Course, according to the article there are 2x as many Intel CPUs as NVidia GPUs in the supercomputer, so both are right…

      • willmore
      • 9 years ago

      Most of the FLOPS come from the GPUs, though, so…

      • OneArmedScissor
      • 9 years ago

      I can’t say I’ve ever seen a computer that functions with only a PCIe card plugged into the motherboard. :p

      Same deal as running a game at low resolution with an overpowered graphics card to test how CPUs dictate the framerate, or turning the graphics up to where almost nothing matters but what type of card it is.

      You have to have enough of one to push the other and strike a balance. Those particular Tesla cards are not exactly light lifters.
