PassMark Bench Mark of OVERCLOCKERS UK Custom Built Gaming PC (5) / ConsumerWatch / Technology

By: Adnaan_Walayat

Just how well built are custom built gaming PC's by OverClockers UK. For whilst the component specs on paper may be great and the machine looks all spanking brand new on delivery. However the only real test is how the PC performs. Where the starting point for such evaluation is to run a bench marking software on the system so as to reveal any bottlenecks due to a poorly built PC, i.e. cutting corners on internal cabling etc. So here with the system up and running for the first time having booted into Windows 10 we ran the popular PassMark benchmarking software.

Custom Built Gaming PC - 2. Quality of Build, What to Check Inside / Personal_Finance / Technology

By: Adnaan_Walayat

In part 2 of our buying a custom built gaming PC from an online builder such as OverClockers UK series, we open up the base unit to take a look at the installed components for what to check for in terms of the quality of build before plugging the PC in and booting it up for the first time, because during transit internal connectors can become loose, so it is always a good idea to check everything inside is secure and plugged as this video illustrates, before powering up the machine for the first time.

Is Space Travel Crazy… or Inevitable? / Companies / Technology

By: Harry_Dent

Of course, everyone in the Baby Boom generation remembers how uniting and inspiring the early orbits and moon landings were. Such heroic efforts, much like wars, also advance learning and technology, often beyond any expectations.

Today we have billionaires and tech leaders from Elon Musk to Richard Branson planning civilian trips around the moon as early as next year… leading the parade to Mars and its colonization… and mining asteroids for precious and rare metals.

Potential Winners in Space Exploration / Politics / Technology

By: Rodney_Johnson

In the pre-dawn hours of Saturday, October 12, 1957, a cold north wind blew through the streets of Baltimore. The temperature hovered around 40 degrees, but many of the people standing outside weren’t concerned about the chilly air.

They trained their binoculars on the sky. A small, glowing object streaked through the darkness and changed their world forever. Footage shot from down below by a local TV cameraman ended up on the national news.

High Tech Is Born In War, Not Silicon Valley / Companies / Technology

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN : Technology is a major foundation of national power. Technologies that define an era usually come from a major geopolitical power. Its uses are obvious.

For example, Roman engineering helped shape the Mediterranean world. British technology created and sustained the industrial revolution.

These empires could absorb the cost of innovation because they had the money to do so. They also knew it would only reinforce their power. And because technologies are meant to reinforce power, even the most benign were invented for military purposes.

Fifty Years Later, Moore's Computing Law Holds / Politics / Technology

By: STRATFOR

By Matthew Bey : Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel Corp., published his now iconic article — Cramming More Components into Integrated Circuits — in the journal Electronics on April 19, 1965. In this paper, Moore observed that the number of transistors fitting on a computer circuit board had roughly doubled each year. A decade later the time-scale was revised to 18-24 months and dubbed "Moore's Law." Following this principle, a computer purchased today would cost about half the price in two years. Processing is now down to one-sixtieth the cost it was a decade ago.

The Aging of the Microchip Industry Is the Reason Behind This Economic Malaise / Stock-Markets / Technology

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN : Classical economics argues that as capitalism matures, competition causes both wages and profits to decline. Wages go down because the early successes of capitalism cause more workers to compete for jobs. Profits decline because more businesses enter markets, causing business failure.

Get Ready for the Future - Exponential Machine Intelligence Mega-trend towards Singularity / Stock-Markets / Technology

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Whilst most readership interest is in my regular stock market in-depth analysis that tend to conclude in detailed trend forecast usually covering at least the next 2-3 months and where possible much longer. However, whilst it is useful to know the probable short-term direction of the stock market for trading, accumulation (investing) and distribution (banking profits) purposes, but frankly, I think most people get overly carried away if not obsessed with seeking out short-term market direction.

By: Mike_Shedlock

Fourth Industrial Revolution Coming

The Fourth Industrial Revolution includes developments artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, 3-D printing, genetics, and biotechnology.

Let’s Hope Machines Take Our Jobs: We Want Wealth, Not Jobs / Economics / Technology

By: MISES

Peter St. Onge writes: The job-threatening rise of the machines is an economically illiterate meme that refuses to die. We’re actually probably in the early stages of it, a bull-market in neo-luddism, if you will. Bastiat’s “Candlemakers Petititon” answered this one long ago, but today I’ll run a little thought experiment that owes it all to good old Bastiat.

Let’s say Weird Al Yankovic invents a machine capable of making everything with a single push of a button. The first thing he does is print up a bunch of machines and sell them for a ton. Weird Al is now a billionaire, and there are thousands of make-everything machines.

How Technology is Revolutionizing Personal Finance / Personal_Finance / Technology

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

Unquestionably, especially in the last few years, the financial services industry has changed beyond all recognition from the days of bank opening times and hire purchase. Essentially, today's financial market place – for consumers at least – revolves around credit and credit ratings.

Some people bask in the glow of a robust credit rating but these days even mentioning it can be a worrying issue for some; yet they may be unnecessarily concerned. Some finance companies can help when it comes to a less than perfect rating. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis so a poor credit score need not be an impediment to, say, a loan.

Tesla Could Be Changing The Dynamics Of Global Energy / Companies / Technology

By: OilPrice_Com

Tesla's announcement last week about creating a new line of batteries for use by businesses, consumers, and the electrical grid at large is a game-changer for the industry. Currently, when individuals or companies need back-up power, they usually rely on generators. Effective battery storage for large amounts of energy would be a game changer in that it would enable a separation of generation and use of energy produced through clean fuels like solar and wind power.

You Can’t Stop Progress, Supposedly / Stock-Markets / Technology

Jared Dillian writes: I am a sometimes gold bug and hard-money advocate, and a hard-core fiscal conservative. I have a pretty bearish outlook on the markets, I am generally skeptical of company management and especially journalists, and I think most investors, even the professional ones, are clueless.

I’m one of those hopeless romantics who pays down his debt (often ahead of schedule), would never ask for a bailout, and would be loath to sign up for unemployment benefits or even Social Security. If I looked hard enough, I could probably find a tinfoil hat that fits.
