    Who are you calling a rounded object, you dirty oblong?

    The GW topic come up on topic with the idea of Shuttleworth seeking a grant for energy usage but you had to pounce.

    A topic like GW can't be argued without encompassing all factors including the politics, otherwise you its equivalent to arguing Star Trek lore. There is simply so much corruption, propaganda and politics involved.
    Yes, there is propaganda. Most of that propaganda is propagated by lobbyists of big oil corporations, who care more about protecting their own profits than the truth, or the future of mankind or our planet. Climate change itself is a phenomenon known and accepted by the vast majority of scientists around the world, because the evidence is there and the evidence is very clear. It's also known that climate change is mostly caused by human activity, ie. pollution. The only thing that is unclear at this point is, how screwed we are, how much time do we have to fix things.

    You don't have to take my word for it. Go look yourself. Follow actual evidence, read some journals and studies by actual scientists, not political pundits or lobbyists or conspiracy theorist blogs written in comic sans, then make your conclusions with correct information.

    Here's a good place to start your educational journey: http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Climate_change


    Left brain and right thinking is a theory of cognition type that is most likely incorrect to the physical area termed in the condition. Most likely the condition has more to do with anatomical lobes and the way the brain was constructed and hormones at that time. If someone is too mechanical in their thinking they lack the nous to join all the variables needed to form fact or new theory. They become robots of propaganda.
    Yeah, I'm sorry, this whole mechanical thinking thing, left-brainery or whatever pop-psych term you want to name it, is making me ask for evidence when people make outrageous claims, such as that the climate change is a hoax. Wait... am I a Borg or a robot now? Make up your mind.

    Anyway, we "robots of propaganda" tend to not accept things as true just because some blogger writes a shitty webpage in comic sans. We tend to look for the available evidence and evaluate the situation, then make our own conclusions. That's something we robots call "critical thinking", coupled with a healthy dose of "common sense". You might want to try them some time.

    I've had some self evaluation and I've decide to not hit on projects like Wayland or PlasmaActive. It's bad conduct on my part as people have put a lot of work in for others to enjoy and I should step away if those projects don't suit.

    The jostling started with combating those that were screaming theft and skulduggery over Canonical's announcement of Mir and the irony of their slow progress and inabilities. Stepping forward, I wish project good-stead, like Vivaldi Tablet and Wayland, but I'm putting my energy into Ubuntu-Touch and Mir being chosen for proprietary driver support.
    Mir is not progress, it's a waste of resources. It's entirely pointless, it brings nothing new to the table, everything it does could be done better with Wayland. Furthermore it's being made in a way that makes it useless for anyone other than Canonical, so it won't get adopted by anyone else. So it's a waste - if Canonical had put the resources they wasted in Mir into improving Wayland, it would benefit everyone. Instead, they're creating waste. That, and the fact that they're effectively causing fragmentation to the desktop Linux, at a time when Linux should stand strong, is what is wrong with Mir. Canonical is effectively holding back the entire Linux desktop with their stunt.

So what is there left to use to squeeze entertainment out of you, besides climate change?

We Borg are funny that way, we don't tend to accept things as true just because a blog written in comic sans says so. And so far, you haven't presented any evidence. Basically, our conversation about climate change has gone like this...

    Like I said case closed. As soon as you said you were a GW proponent then it's more or less like talking to a Borg, especially when you are sprouting off all the indoctrinated propaganda terms and statements. Other words you're no free-thinker.

    Case close, I will not be reply to GW content with you. It's off topic too.

    e8hfff: global warming is a hoax! I know cuz there's this secret organization that's not really secret but they said some offhand quote in 1970-something about pollution, and that of course proves beyond any doubt that global warming is not real!
    me: fascinating. Do you have any evidence for your claims?
    e8hfff: don't tell me that propaganda! You're trying to indoctrinate me with your facts and logic and science! I'm not going to talk to you about this anymore!

    That's pretty much par for the course with you. But hey, maybe you do have all that evidence, you just don't want to share it, for some reason. So, the ball is in your court. Go on, show us all how wrong we are.

    So you simply ignore the historical fact from a very powerful organisation.

    I don't expect much from a teen brat.

    Case closed.
    I have your proof right here!

    wow, global warming denying and new world order...
    That's an impressive new low.

    But who needs facts anyway?

    So, hey... you have this evidence somewhere that some kind of mystery organization that no one has heard of has made a worldwide conspiracy of climate change. You have evidence that all the evidence of climate change we've gathered, around the world, since the last few decades, has been faked or something, to further some agenda of some mystery organization. Can any of us see that evidence? Obviously, you should go public with this. If you have such evidence, you could be a hero, you could expose a conspiracy. Why not do it?

    You do have evidence, don't you? You're not just going by some blog written in comic sans, right? Come on, show us all wrong. Boy, won't we feel stupid when you show us all the evidence you have, that'll shut us up.

    Not sure "number of polygons" per second is the end all be all metric to compare GPUs.. what about shaders for example?
    To me it seems that PS3 games are still visually more impressive than mobile games, but then, I don't play on mobile (or console).
    I take it you didn't read anything on the GPU tech, they are completely modern all shader based GPUs, this is why they can make use of OpenCL, because shaders are programmable. The PS3 GPU is based on the Nvidia G71/7900GTX but with fewer ROPs, it's OpenGL 2.1 class hardware. If ARM based GPUs are now capable of matching that and have modern shaders with OpenGL4/CL1.2 support then they are actually in real terms quite powerful for the amount of power they draw. But are nowhere near what modern power hungry chips can do.

    Yeah, the detail level is intentionally kept low, because of the screen size, no matter how high resolution you make the screen, things have to be a certain size or they become near impossible to accurately hit in a touch interface because your finger will never be pixel accurate like a mouse is on a full sized display.

    Many of the ARM SOC designers are jumping on board with AMD for HSA, if they can offload much of the heavy lift work to the GPU they can make their SOCs allot more powerful inside of the same power envelope. People want more video capabilities, they want to build things like Google Glass, they want to make cars with a HUD built into the windshield that can see through fog and snow etc. without having to put in a system that would draw enough power to noticeably impact fuel economy.

    and also it run's Wayland...
