>VR could very much end up like a flash in the pan like 3D or dead tech like Kinect currently is but I don't think its all that likely
What did he mean by this?
Literally the only difference between VR and 3D stereo is that your phone is strapped to your face. Defend him.
Will Windows forever be NT kernel based?
Probably yes. They have invested a lot of times and resources in that kernel that I don't think they would make the change at this point.
They had the Midori as an experimental kernel, though, but they didn't do shit with it.
The plan in the long term is to move to RT. I know that sounds dumb right now but I'm the long run their betting or already know that ARM is where everything is going so their taking advantage of that. Look at some of their decisions and their business timelines. They stay with NT because they've poured all their resources into it. And corporations aren't gonna want to hear how they are going to have endless headaches switching over. When the time is right, they'll be there
Okay /g/ help me out.
I have pic related hooked up with Raspberry pi to control lights in my room which is pretty cool but the problem is that my Pi will crash if I power on 3 or more channels, I guess this is because of Pi can't power them.
How do I fix this?
I have seen many guides how to do this but none of them seem to face the same problem.
tl;dr: how do I power this externally?
Directly wire the 5v and gnd to the psu or increase the current output of the psu supplying the pi. If that still does not work then have a separate psu to power the board and link the grounds from each psu. :)
Can you post the model or link to the relay?
Usually relays operate at 5V, depending on the model with or without external PSU, but if you can power it with your Pi, I guess it can be fed with 3V (the Pi is limited to 3V). Usually 3V relays need an external source.
But yea, try to power it externally as >>52364516 said.
Anti bait thread
I'm curious about Firefox Sync
Who host the data of sync?
Does it have access?
Is it encrypted for the server side?
I need a new PC. Reason why I need it though is because I need a PC to do experiments on. Things like using mayo, or toothpaste as thermal paste. What parts should I buy? I need a replacable CPU (not expensive) for obvious reasons.
Why do ANY Windows OS become slow after 1 year of use?
Can toothpaste substitute thermal paste? Are there any other substitutes?
Riddle me this /g/. I screwed in some LED lightbulbs in my bathroom and they keep pulsing when the light's switched off, do I call an exorcist?
If you had gone to /diy/ then perhaps someone would have explained that because when you switch off your light switch the switched wire is allowed to float rather than tied to neutral small currents are induced in the wire from other power cables close by.
Because of the stupidly efficient power supply in the bulb required to produce a voltage that the led
LEDs can actually use the stay energy is stored up until the is enough to power the lamp. As soon as the lamp strikes the energy is used up almost immediately...

Lots of distributions have niches in which they excel. I've been ssh'ing into a couple of CentOS servers that have been excellent.
If the range of Linux distributions is too much for you to get your head around and you need a single monolithic "best" operating system, maybe Windows is more your speed.

Outdated, but still an awesome piece of kit.
So this has now popped up twice for me. When do you think they'll implement micro payments to the calculator?

What is going on with PC processor development?
I have a 5 year old i5 3750k in my PC that I bought for $179. The same processor is still a solid choice for a new PC today, and here's the kicker... retails for $229.
Has Moore's law finally crapped out, or is this price fixing on the part of Intel/AMD? Or rather, "tech fixing," some kind of agreement to slow down the development roadmaps of both companies?
I look at operations per second in the computing world, and it's going through the roof on every device... except Desktop PC...

I think you've missed the point of the post. It's not about why a specific processor got more expensive in five years, it's about why a better processor doesn't exist that's cheaper.
You can't just increase the frequency, so they started adding more cores.
Then they went for better power management as the majority of the market is very close to idle all the time.
I still rock a 2400 on my desktop because I don't really need to upgrade.
I might get a new gpu just to toy with cuda, but I don't need it for any current application.
Okay anarchists, please explain to me like I am 5 how your average developer can make money when adhering to the "free software" principles? Imagine anyone could make official Coca Cola or licensed medication at home because the recipes are completely free. How will Coca Cola make money?
Your average developer adhering to it is doing it as a hobby or a side-gig for shits and giggles, some rarer ones do it for donations.
The question you want to ask is how your average developer that doesn't adhere can compete with free software,
in which case i answer that i don't give a singly flying fuck.
>Okay anarchists, please explain to me like I am 5 how your average developer can make money when adhering to the "free software" principles?
According to the GNU license he can sell the software for example. Or you might do like Wordpress and create a service, technical support and a store where peoplecan sell their own add-ons to the free software. Wordpress have made them millions and is a staple of web development today.
Hey /g/, is it posible to turn a phone into a device that outputs so many electromagnetic waves that it completely shadows other devices (phones for example) and make it impossible to make a call? What are the limits of this and what type of devices could it attack?
So besides not being a retard, what do you think is the "best" antivirus? The more I hear, the more I think they're all shit.
Pic probably unrelated.
