  • Do Led power lights on computers Burn out?

    Best answer: The most likely explanation of what you are seeing is the LED use has been re-assigned in software. So previously it may have been assigned to indicate power on and now it has been assigned to disk usage. This can only happen if the LED is wired to the output of a chip/microcontroller rather than hard-wired to a... show more

  • Why do nerds hate Apple?

    Best answer: I'm a developer and I hate Apple...

    First and foremost is the overpricing.. The hardware they put out tends to be standard if not slightly sub-par with the third-party PC manufacturers. Yet, despite this, all of their devices are priced at astronomical prices.

    They refuse to be practical. Why is it that I still see tons and tons of broken Apple screens? While there are still some in the Android market, manufacturers have come a very long way to make sure that the screens are more durable. The removal of useful ports has resulted in people dragging along tons and tons of dongles to do anything they used to be able to do every day (like the 3.5mm jack). I'm pretty sure Apple started the trend on this one... I miss Ethernet ports on laptops (which is why I'm now using enterprise laptops). Additionally, their attempt to deprecate old hardware with new incompatible cables is another slap in the face to consumers.

    Their hardware is locked down and it's impossible to switch anything out or upgrade without buying a whole new computer. This makes it impractical as a long-term purchase.

    Personally, I find their MacOS UI to be very confusing and very fractured. An example... Why would you put the program's title bar and menus into the taskbar of the OS? It makes no sense compared to windows or most distributions of Linux. Means that you have to click on that application to get the menus and it's just bad design. They seem to think animations between programs is more important than functionality...

    You MUST have the apple device you're developing for to test an application you're writing (as far as I know)... I can't write an IOS application because I don't have an apple device to test it on. Android has emulators, why doesn't Apple?

    Because it's so hard to develop for Apple and other devices at the same time, Apple tends to have less support for applications. Additionally, because the OS is so locked down, it's hard to customize your user experience much more than changing your wallpaper... This was fixed somewhat when they came up with bootcamp... But it seems more like a bandaid solution...

    And finally... Their integration at the enterprise level is questionable... Execs like them because they look cool and light, but they're a nuisance to join to domains for long periods and keep them working within a work environment... Though, others may have had better experiences...

    Anyways, that's my take... I like Android, Windows, Linux, and a few others... Apple had its hayday, but it died with Jobs. Yes, it was still locked down and we were all complaining about a bunch of stuff... But at least Apple was innovative.. We had never dreamed about iPods and IPhones.. They were truly amazing devices for their time and that's what set them apart. However, I haven't seen anything I've been impressed with by them in almost a decade now.

    Best answer: CMOS Battery is a laptop type cable assembly with battery. It is found on the side of the motherboard that is under the fan.
    http://www.pbase.com/cjed/image/16117614...

    It appears to be a 2015 model. CMOS batteries in a proper design last 6 to 10 years. The Revo RL85 is closer to a laptop missing parts than a desktop PC. Laptop CPU and graphics processors, laptop wifi and internal antenna, single stick of laptop ram, external brick power supply, seems to have slots for up to 3x laptop memory storage SSD or HDD of 2.5 inch drives.
    At 6:06 of the video, look for the black and red twisted cable connected to the white connector on the motherboard:

    Image IMG_4210_EOS7D.jpg
    http://www.pbase.com/cjed/acer_rl85
    Acer went cheap with the CMOS battery brand as KTS (Lixing / Vic-Dawn Enterprise Co., Ltd.) in a CR2016 battery on a cable that is soldered and sealed and generally replaced as a cable assembly. Panasonic brand ones are superior, but may be a different connector. You can hack your own replacement CR2016 battery,but they can explode with heat.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DdAZrTZjEM
    It probably will not fit the the more standard thicker CR2032 size.
    The battery cable assembly is known as a KTS 491 CR2016W
    The battery is a coin type 3V, 90mAh. I think the 491 represents the connector and wire length rather than a date code.
    KTS brand CR2016 appears to be only 83mAh

    Unfortunately, extensive internet searching did not find the exact replacement and it is uncertain which similar units can be used.
    It is definitely a 2 wire.

    Best answer: Currently Google is working with the Pentagon on an AI project (Maven) developing components for analyzing images in video streams. However, because of a petition signed by several of Google's employees as well as media backlash, they have opted to not renew that contract going forward.

    Answer:
    Currently, yes. Though they've announced they will not renew the contract when it expires sometime next year.

    By the way, Amazon, Microsoft and Oracle have already had or are seeking contracts for cloud storage with the Pentagon. So Google isn't just the first big company to be doing this. I guess it was the AI aspect that could be used directly in weapons targeting that caused the biggest backlash and hence the pullback.

  • Does a video card have to be a match to go into SLI?

    Best answer: SLI requires both GPUs to be the same.

    So if you have a GTX 560 Ti, you have to get another 560 Ti.

    The amount of RAM or the brand doesn't really matter. The cards will run at the smaller amount since the cards run in tandem, not stacked.

    Best answer: AI that is smarter than us is absolutely coming and will be a thing that happens.

    The first question is when. I think alot of futurists are overestimating the speed with which we'll get there. AI right now are really good at some tasks, but we're a LONG way away from the sort of general intelligence that a person has.

    But once we get there, what will a hyperintelligent AI be like? Will we be in control? Will it regard us as parents? Masters? Pets? A threat? A pest? No one knows. Obviously in works of fiction, we always imagine the negative outcomes because they create drama. And we tend to be pessimistic as a species so we often imagine the worst case scenario. But the bad outcomes aren't necessarily more likely than the good ones. We just don't know.

    We're going to do our best to make sure that AI is developed in a way that it's spread is controlled, and it is channelled to our benefit. But if indeed it becomes smarter than us, it's not hard to imagine how that might fail.
