Charlie, how can anyone say Microsoft is irrelevant?  Billions of dollars of cash on hand.  80 billion as of last count.  Continues to control 90 percent plus of the OS market share.  It's kinda like saying: Starbucks is irrelevant.  Is it not?

I don't know why no one else writes about this stuff.  I think they might not understand it.  #Samsun http://semiaccurate.com/2013/05/28/samsung-talks-about-their-14nm-finfet-process/

#INTC buried my dead horse.  Must find new dead horse to beat.  #AMD had better watch out, competition is coming, sometime, soon. http://semiaccurate.com/2013/05/28/intel-finally-fixes-their-graphics-problems/

I do expect an exodus after the X1 gets released. Got those specs through a few days ago and I was all like 'blimey, they're just like the PS4's specs, just worse'.

Feeling amused here :)

Story
Bragging rights
Wrote a TCP/IP stack for a game console in the 1990s long before it was cool. Never came out because the console died before it was done.
Education
  • University of Minnesota
    Biology, 1987 - 1995
    Changed majors a lot so I have enough background in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Biology, Entomology, Genetics, and CSci to be dangerous. It is hard to lose me on most science topics.

Occupation
Write about technology for SemiAccurate, design networks for Stone Arch Networking
Skills
Digging out data and connecting obscure technical points that no one seems to see. Troubleshooting complex network and hardware problems that drive sane people crazy.
Employment
  • Stone Arch Networking
    Owner, 2001 - present
    Design, maintain, and troubleshoot networks for SMBs in the Minneapolis area. More to keep my skills sharp and test things vendor claims than for full time employment. Practice what you preach or look dumb.
