"Good Guy Google", menyumbang 15.000 komputer Raspberry Pi ke sekolah-sekolah di Inggris.

Raspberry Pi ini unik karena mendorong penggunanya untuk menjadi kreatif, dan tidak hanya sekedar memakainya saja.

Bagi yang ingin membeli sendiri Raspberry Pi ini, silakan bisa mampir a/l ke http://toko.intiteknologi.co.id/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=60

Chromium vs Chrome : ternyata Chromium lebih kencang 😀 karena, bisa memanfaatkan GPU / 3D card yang ada di komputer saya.

Terlampir screenshot, di sisi kiri adalah layar Chromium. Lihat, dia bisa memanfaatkan GPU untuk semua kegiatannya. (1)

Sedangkan di sebelah kanan adalah browser Google Chrome (versi 23), tidak bisa sama sekali memanfaatkan GPU yang ada.

Jadi, jika Google Chrome terasa lambat di komputer Anda – ganti saja dengan Chromium 🙂 

Cara pasang Chromium di Ubuntu :

*sudo add-apt-repository ppa:a-v-shkop/chromium-dev
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser*

(Jika Anda ingin pakai versi stable nya, ganti "chromium-dev" menjadi "chromium")

Cara pasang Chromium di Windows : Gunakan CNU (Chromium Nightly Updater) : http://dirhael.dcmembers.com/cnu/

Enjoy !

(1) "Panel Fitting" adalah fitur yang hanya ada di ChromeOS, contoh, di laptop Chromebook.

Microsoft Surface Pro 64GB mengecoh customer – space tersedia yang bisa dipakai sebetulnya hanya 23 GB. Hanya 35 % dari kapasitas yang dicantumkan.

Bandingkan dengan Google Nexus 7 tipe 8GB yang saya beli – ternyata space yang tersedia malah 16GB ! 🙂 🙂 200 % lebih banyak daripada yang dijanjikan. Wow ! 🙂 

Kalau terus begini sepak terjangnya, memang tinggal menunggu waktu saja….

Famous fancy Restaurants doesn't stand a chance against Indonesia's Traditional market Food vendors : just enjoyed the delicious coconut-milk steamed rice, with red chili egg, spicy potatoes, and juicy aubergine. Served with tasty black tea.

Never tasted anything like that in all those expensive restaurants in Malls etc.

And all those for less than US$ 1. Yes, you read it right.
Just 93 cents to be exact. Awesome.

I hope my children and grandchildren would still be able to enjoy them. Might not, with all these traditional markets being destroyed, moved to unsuitable locations, replaced with Malls, etc. That'd be a real pity…..

Iceland rocks : di negara ini, para #bankir yang menghancurkan ekonomi mereka pada ditangkapi, dan sisanya kabur. 

Iceland adalah negara demokrasi tertua di dunia (sejak 930), DAN rakyatnya secara #aktif  memperjuangkan kepentingan mereka.

Pada kasus krisis ekonomi 2008 kemarin, rakyat Iceland bergerak menekan, sampai akhirnya bahkan konstitusi / dasar negara mereka diubah, dan, para bankir yang menyebabkan #kolaps tersebut ditangkapi dengan cepat.

Hanya rakyat yang aktif & tercerahkan yang bisa menjamin kesejahteraan suatu negara. Bukan pemerintahnya.

Gosip seputar next-gen game consoles : PS4 & 720 : http://www.reddit.com/r/…

Gosip seputar next-gen game consoles : PS4 & 720 : http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/16tttt/orbis_unmasked_what_to_expect_from_the_nextgen/c7zfgtg

Dikutip :

Akan ada banyak game yang jadi bisa dijalankan juga di Linux – berkat Sony PS4 🙂

" the PS4 is a Linux PC . I was wondering how Valve were going to convince developers to put money into developing games for a Linux, they don't need to anymore, Sony just did that for them.

Porting to Linux just became trivial, you shouldn't be surprised if in a couple of years you end up seeing Max Payne 4 released simultaneously for your Windows or Linux PC, Steambox, 720 and PS4."

"AMD were working on these "Jaguar" cores for a while and they probably made a second team to work on a version for Microsoft's console. The AMD Jaguar cores are designed to be extremely low powered and they have numerous power saving features.

Nowadays you don't really need a very powerful CPU since the GPU can do a lot more. The benefit of 8 cores is that you can switch off the cores that you aren't using.

Furthermore with this set up you can still call on a lot of power but you can also switch off what you don't need.

AMD are a big believer in heterogeneous computing, in other words everything works together and what isn't needed doesn't draw power"

"On the GPU part, about a few months ago me and colleagues were speculating about what we would see. In the end we whittled it down to two "performance envelopes". One was equivalent to a HD 7850-7870 and the other was equivalent to a GTX 680.

Either way though … expect a giant leap, consoles have an edge since you don't have API overhead, you write to the metal. Even a 7850 equivalent in a console is a big big jump up."

"Microsoft and Sony are taking different approaches. Microsoft are going with slower DDR RAM but more of it, they seem to be "saving" a lot of RAM for OS functions, in other words it looks like Microsoft have some sort of plans, maybe Kinect 2.0 or something.

Sony on the other hand went with less RAM but it is faster GDDR RAM and Sony are also seemingly spending more money on the GPU.

In other words the way it looks the PS4 will be engineered to be a pure gaming machine with more power, the 720 will fall in between the PS4 and Wii U in terms of power."

"next generation consoles should draw less power than the first version versions of the 360 and PS3 which means there probably won't be a power brick (ed: power adapter) and the cases might be a little smaller too.

1080P and 60 FPS should be the standard across the entire board "

"As a consequence of smartphones and tablets, the sales of the next generation consoles are probably going to be lower than this generation.

Say for example the 360 and PS3 end up with 70 million a piece sold this generation, the 720 and PS4 might end up selling 50 million each."

"It seems like neither Microsoft nor Sony will subsidise their next generation consoles, they will make a profit with every console sold… in fact they might be able to make a profit with a launch price of $300 to $350 "

Sebagian orang itu mirip seperti deep-sea creatures / makhluk hidup di dalam samudera…

Sebagian orang itu mirip seperti deep-sea creatures / makhluk hidup di dalam samudera – mereka terus bertahan hidup di bawah tekanan yang sangat ekstrim sekalipun. 
Kesulitan menghadang mereka dari segala penjuru, namun, tetap mereka tersenyum. Walau kadang dengan agak getir.

Tentunya sangat wajar jika kemudian kita jadi merasa simpati terhadap mereka. Maka, kemudian dengan sigap, kita pun mengulurkan tangan kita untuk membantu.

Tahukah Anda, apa yang terjadi ketika makhluk di dasar samudera diangkat ke permukaan ? Dipindahkan ke tempat yang, menurut kita, aman & nyaman ?

Ya, sebagian besar dari mereka mati. Dihancurkan oleh diri mereka sendiri !
http://nature.ca/explore/di-ef/dsfe_e.cfm

Organ di dalam tubuh mereka, yang biasa berada di bawah tekanan yang luar biasa, mendadak kehilangan tekanan tersebut. Sehingga mengembang menjadi sangat besar, bahkan sampai keluar dari mulut. Akibatnya tentu sudah bisa ditebak – fatal.

Sebagian orang pun seperti itu juga. Ketika kita menolong begitu saja, TANPA mempertimbangkan situasi ybs dengan baik, maka pertolongan kita tersebut justru kadang malah akan "membunuh" mereka….

Sebagian orang perlu hidup di bawah tekanan. Sebagian orang sudah terbiasa hidup di bawah tekanan. 
Abaikan fakta ini – maka, pertolongan Anda justru malah akan mencelakakan mereka. Perubahan situasi yang mendadak akan menyebabkan banyak orang mengalami shock – bahkan ketika perubahan tersebut adalah kepada, yang menurut kita, kebaikan.

Sebagian orang bisa kita angkat dengan perlahan-lahan. Namun, sebagian lainnya memang harus mereka sendiri yang mengangkat dirinya sendiri. Karena begitu halusnya, sehingga kelembutan tangan kita pun masih tetap telak melukai sampai jauh ke dalam, tanpa kita & dia sadari.

" Sesungguhnya Allah tidak akan mengubah nasib suatu kaum sampai mereka mengubah apa-apa yang ada pada diri mereka sendiri. " — QS 13:11
