Imagine using an Amazon Fire 7 to get our boys to the moon


trev2600

No ignition on the rocket until you've watched two ads.


Techn028

Blue origin, is that you?


beyondthisreality

In the future, Amazon will have big rockets taking passengers back and forth across space, the trips will be subsidized by having ads beamed into your brain while you’re in cryogenic stasis.


hiddenflames5462

Also any unlicensed oxygen shall be confiscated and sold back to you. Any employees that lose productivity will be secretly executed by your smartsuit and replaced with the new incoming crew.


thinman12345

Wasn’t this the plot for a Doctor Who episode.


hiddenflames5462

Yes. Honestly, I wouldn't even put it pass Amazon considering how they treat their employees.


Candyvanmanstan

Just give it x years until human life is so abundant that it's less valuable than natural resources, add a dollop of capitalism and another scoop of cognitive dissonance to think of certain humans as livestock.

My microwave has more computational power than the moon lander.


Evanmara53

A Middle school calculator has more processing power than the F-14 tomcats flight computer, and a bunch of other more modern war planes except for the newest like SU-57 and F-35


baphosam

Is it weird that I’m more impressed by the efficiency of the Tomcats lack of need for more power vs unimpressed about the calculator thing?

9999999999999999 === 10000000000000000


rabid_coconut

It literally does


[deleted]

.9999999999… equals 1, but I’m pretty sure integers don’t just roll over like that.


79037662

You forgot the ellipses... but yes


ChristorFurColombian

If we accept that The difference between .99999999999 and 1 is negligible why would the difference between 99999999999 and 100000000000 be different. The quotients are the same.


NiveusLuna

1/3 * 3 = 1. 1/3 = 0.3333333... 0.33333... * 3 = 0.99999... Combining the middle statement with the law of equivalency gives us: 0.99999... = 1 The two are equal, therefore there is no difference to be considered negligible.


kyoujikishin

now you're thinking with limits


Invisifly2

Also, with "r" representing "repeating" X = 0.9r 10X = 9.9r 10X - X = 9.9r - 0.9r 9X = 9 X = 1 Edit: Because you guys apparently can't read, "r" is not being used as a variable. It's being used as a shorthand for 0.99999.... because typing that on my phone is a pain.


Stygian_Lights

The guy messed up his explanation .999999999999 does not equal 1. .999999999999...=1 (note the eclipses). Eclipses specifically are what makes them equivalent, as 1/3=.333333333... and that times three is .99999999... and a number divided by and then multiplied by the same number is always equal to where you started. This effect isn’t present for integers. Which is why 9999999999999 doesn’t equal 10000000000000.


palomdude

Solar or lunar eclipses?


HerrBerg

.999~ is different. A difference of .0000000001 is significant with large amounts depending on the application. .999~ is literally 1.


skeptic11

JavaScript doesn't have integers. It only has floating point values.


ManInBlack829

Because jetfuel doesn't need to be strongly typed


goj1ra

AnCap_Wisconsinite

If {jet_fuel} Then run {melt_steel_beams.exe}


KerPop42

Well, it can do one thing extremely well, while a TI-84 needed to be Turing-complete. Like, consider the brain effenciency of a frog vs a human. Frogs don't have society. They don't need to prepare taxes. They don't need to comprehend shame. Fuck, I wish I were a frog


Taman_Should

Frogs are basically little mouth sacks with legs attached, that fling the mouth at anything that looks wriggly. They diverged from lungfish over a hundred million years ago, and were like, I'm good forever.

To paraphrase a great author, in the beginning the universe was created. This has been widely regarded as a bad idea


baphosam

For the same reasons I wish I could be a Tree sometimes.


PowerlinxJetfire

The computers in Tomcats, spacecraft, etc. just have different constraints. They need to do one thing really well, and the designers want to be as confident as possible that it'll do it correctly and safely. The former means you don't need as much compute power, and the latter basically forces you to keep the software as absolutely simple as possible (which also means you don't need as much compute power). For example, the space shuttle computers can't even handle the year rolling over. There were a few instances where NASA changed their plans, even cutting missions short, just to avoid being in space on Dec 31/Jan 1.


ITFOWjacket

I mean, your middle schooler calculator isn’t operated by an A-class Ace fighter pilot.


CombatMuffin

Most pilots in the Air Force wouldn't traditionally rank as Aces (in the traditional sense), as you need 5 or more verified aerial victories. Pilots rarely engage nowadays, at least that we know of.


NetworkLlama

They don't get the chance to engage much. Between the lack of real opponents and the doctrine of overwhelming airb superiority enforced in pay through sheer numbers, there aren't many targets to go around. The last known fighter ace crowns likely went to avpilot in the Iran-Iraq War. Neither side could achieve air superiority and they shot down dozens of each other's aircraft. Iran had at least a dozen aces, while the number of Iraqi access isn't clear. The war ended in 1988, so it's been more than 30 years since an ace was crowned anywhere.


CombatMuffin

Yup, that's more or less what I understood. That said: you don't need to be an Ace to be a great pilot, and likewise, being an Ace doesn't guarantee you are great by default (though you usually have to be). I am sure most pilots in modern Air Forces are quite capable and skilled.


techieman34

It really comes down to the opponents aircraft. Shooting down 5 MiG 21s in an F-22 probably isn’t that hard. But doing the opposite would make you damn near a god.


TheCevi

I wonder if there is a fighter pilot with call sign "Mobius One?" It reminds me of Ace Combat.

HudsonGTV

The funniest part is calculators like the Ti-84 are run Z-80 processors. The Z-80 came out in the late 70s, and was used in some of the earliest microcomputers. The Z-80 is a clone of the Intel 8080, which was the CPU used in the Altair 8800.


hvaffenoget

SmirnOffTheSauce

Those NASA computers probably got hot enough to cook our burritos, though!


mangobattlefruit

Yeah, but you can compare number of operations per second, memory available etc. Enough similarities to make an appropriate comparison. While today's pocket calculator is designed to do math, it has much more memory and can perform many more operations per second, and at a higher frequency (redundant) than the "chips" in an Apollo 11 guidance computer.


njmh

I think it’s better to think about how “easy” and “cheap” it is to have that computational power now for even the most mundane everyday tasks. Put another way - compare the engineering effort that had to go into developing the lander computer from scratch back then vs having access to an almost limitless selection of “off the shelf” chips and chip production techniques fit for almost any purpose.

pavan-2020

Tbh thats really impressive they managed to photoshop moon landing on such low end PC /S


unhalfbricking

The tech required to fake as moon landing is more complex than the tech required to land on the moon.


Comprehensive-Ad3963

We were also in a Cold War with a superpower itching to be known as the first nation to land on the Moon. The Soviets had the technology and motivation to call us out on a fake moon landing. But they *congratulated* us, instead.


silkissmooth

To be fair, the space race was always pretty cordial between the US and USSR. Just not the other rockets being engineered at the time haha


[deleted]

[удалено]


bankrobba

Both quickly realized it was impossible, so they secretly agreed to fake everything. USSR got first man in space, USA got first man on the moon (because of Hollywood's superior movie sets).


[deleted]

I cannot tell if you are being ironic or just incredibly stupid but I'm gonna believe the former because I trust that humanity isn't a second from ending itself due to it's own stupidity.

I don' tthink they meant it, but there ARE people that stupid out there.


bankrobba

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.


SarcasticAssBag

> I cannot tell if you are being ironic or just incredibly stupid This is the reason the flat-earth trolling is so successful. You need to re-tune your satiredar.


bankrobba

Flat earthers have members around the globe, there's no need for satire.


kohnar46290

Lmaoo


Ultrasonic-Sawyer

To be fair, the original US plan was a lot more cold War like than landing a human in the moon. Instead the original plan was to [nuke the moon] (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PROJECT_A119) in a project that got way further off the ground than it ever should have. To make it more interesting, Carl Sagen was brought in as a researcher to devise if it was possible and how to do it.


Minignoux

imagine they nuked the moon


factoid_

It's funny but that's also a true statement. We STILL don't have the technology to convincingly fake the moon landing in a way that would hold up to as much scrutiny as the actual moon landing has been.


gthaatar

No no you see, what people dont know is we really did fake the Moon landing...on Venus. bwahahhaa


mohak_soni

Bruh photoshop wasn't even there at that time, Ig it was Paint /S

This is why we see the moon's "phases". Over time, the tape peels off and it curls over, and we have to send someone up there to re stick it


cody_contrarian

I heard Stanley Kubrick demanded that they film the fake moon landing on site to make it more believable.


Vegeta_Bhau

ive been using opera gx for like 2 years and it feels so weird to look at any other browsers now


mohak_soni

I use normal opera


h1tmanc3

Whats the difference? I only use Opera for NSFW things lmao.


Throwaway214917

From what I see, it's the CPU GPU RAM limiter. Also the colour and themes looks cute. Wouldn't be surprised there's more, never dwell into the settings that much


SaiHottari

Yeah, those features are nice for when you want the browser going but want to play a game that gets unstable at high RAM usage. I got it more for the improved privacy and integrated VPN. (Disclaimer: I'm not saying opera has great privacy, but it's better than Chrome, which is what I was using before)


Throwaway214917

True lol, mainly use it for the vpn. It's just so convenient, a mandatory for when the government is too restrictive. Can't even access reddit without vpn

Where is the firefox gang at?


fizikz3

literally me. i actually took this pic. https://imgur.com/5mY5YhV


Live-Ad-6309

Firefox is the correct answer.


ggtsu_00

Firefox is the only answer. We need less people using Chrome so that web developers stop building web pages that only work in Chrome due to Chrome's lack of privacy protections and not enforcing cross domain request rules.


thundercloudtemple

Catch 22. Devs make pages for Chrome, people use Chrome. Occasionally, people try other browsers and the experience isn't as nice. Back to Chrome. Sucks all around.


KolyaKorruptis

Web developer here. The truth is that Chrome's dev tools are just more polished.


Hellrider386

I use either edge or brave nowadays tbh, they are quite a bit faster than the ol chrome


h1tmanc3

I transitioned to edge a few month back from chrome and found it to be a surprisingly very good browser and so much more gentle on the old RAM. Only problem I've found with it is sometimes all your tabs will freeze up but it's simply fixed by minimizing it and maximizing it again.


ujtheghost

Tabs freezing? Doesn't happen on my 8 GB RAM 11 year old laptop.


h1tmanc3

It's not the tabs per say, the whole browser freezes up but is still functional and responsive. It's more an aesthetical bug then anything else, even any audio you have playing isn't effected. I have up to date 16gb RAM btw so it's certainly not a RAM problem.


[deleted]

[удалено]


h1tmanc3

I don't even have to refresh, just minimise and re maximize. Can you not get it back without refreshing?


Sweet_Meat_McClure

Fairly confident that's a chromium core bug


everett640

Probably a driver issue that's computer specific


h1tmanc3

Yeah, I looked it up on Google and Microsoft are aware of the problem for some time but don't seem to be able to fix it, so that indeed does make sense. Tbf it's a very minor inconvenience and probably happens like once every 12 hours give or take.


WhoaItsCody

Why is Chrome so labor intensive on the RAM? Is every tab a new process or something?


h1tmanc3

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you just answered your own question there, I remember reading that each chrome tab runs as it's own individual process. Like 10 years ago this made it the ultimate browser in terms of speed, but I think it's an outdated way for a browser to function nowadays, hence Edge being a superior browser in terms of stability, speed and efficiency on your computers resources. Pretty sure chrome will be given an overhaul at some point soon. This is all just my opinion though, I'm no tech expert and probably just talking utter bollocks lol.


EightB1ts

The newer versions of edge are chromium based and use the same Blink web renderer. So it runs processes just like Chrome does.


h1tmanc3

So... its basically chrome with a different name and UI?


Straight_Cry_1260

Funny because when I say Edge is a great browser Reddit tech bros just respond "because it *is* Chrome now, lololol" as if using Chromium means Microsoft did no work and accomplished nothing. If it "is Chrome" why is Edge better than Chrome today...? Just maybe there's something more to a browser than the codebase.


BraianP

I haven’t used many other browsers out there but I have chrome synced across my devises with some extensions and a bunch of bookmarks so it would be a pain to change at this point.


EvilKnivel69

Firefox has the same syncing capabilities and iirc you can export/import bookmarks from one to the other.


Chewie_i

I switched to opera GX and you can import certain things like accounts and bookmarks from chrome


ODS519

Edge can import everything from chrome too


dethmstr

I've been using Firefox for a few years for this reason.


VibhavOP

Brave blocks ads on YT, Spotify and on almost all other websites plus it’s slightly faster than chrome


Gussamuel

I transitioned to Opera GX from Chrome. I only use chrome for automated browsing programs, and Opera as my main browser. It’s incredibly fast.


-ELEVATE-

Plus it makes cool sounds when I click on stuff 😩😩


mohak_soni

My pc and handle only 1 app/ 1-2 tabs anyways so doesn't matter what i use Tho i use opera


RamenJunkie

Is it from 1996?


capsaicinintheeyes

It was never the same after WWY2K...


LeCrushinator

You need to upgrade from that Pentium 2.


FaeryLynne

I think he's got a Dorito in there.


U-N-C-L-E

Too bad Windows is starting to add bloat to Edge. They just can't help themselves. It will be slower than Chrome in the next couple years.


qtqtc

I don't know if people using a different version of chrome. But I have 40 tabs active and Chrome only takes about 2,4 GB RAM.


alkalineStrider

How much RAM do you have installed ? The usage is relative to the amount of memory you have available..


justAPhoneUsername

Yep. Chrome will use the resources available to it as much or as little as that is


corylulu

It will also allocate memory automatically if other programs need it. That's the thing about RAM, it doesn't cost anything extra to use and optimally, you are using as much as possible to keep things fast.


alreadygay11111

what fucking chrome you using dog give me it i dont enjoy my 32 gigs of ram being eaten by chrome the fucking ram goblin


ManSkirtDude101

TheMovingTarget6

Well you should install uBlock origin but that's besides the point


boringestnickname

I have hundreds of tabs. Sitting at around 3-4 GB (I have 32 GB RAM.) Y'all not using groups?


Real_Lingonberry9270

I struggle to comprehend why it would be necessary to keep hundreds of tabs open lmao. Why? hundreds? Like, more than 200 tabs?


Nall-ohki

Does free ram make you feel warm and fuzzy or something? Your OS will ask for it back if it needs it. Using as much RAM as possible can be a good sign of proper utilization.


DoNotBotherMeplz

I think this particular picture was from a magic the gathering card, but I couldn't tell you the name of the card.


Nightkickman

yeah well 4000 bytes of data probably only processed the smallest of tasks like communications, navigation and some sensors and then they had to do everything else manually. New generation of spaceships will surely use the advancement in technology to include all kinds of diagnostics, autopilot and other technology.


BloodDragonSniper

Yeah, I see all this stuff about how everything is stronger than what nasa used to put men on the moon. Really annoying, it’s not about the power of the tech but what it does. No matter how much ram my phone has it won’t exist orbit


trickman01

It also wasn't 'RAM'. Everything was doing a specific job and couldn't be allocated to anything else.

LetMeRegisterPls8756

chrome lite is chromium, but i doubt most people would like it, i would recommend firefox if you usually have A LOT of tabs open, but with tracker blocking put to strict in settings and while using the ublock origin extension.


seridos

What people forget about ram is that if it's not being utilized, it's going to waste. A program scaling its ram usage based on how much is available is a good thing. If I've got 32 gb of ram and 25 of it is idle, then sure chrome use as much of that as you need to keep my web browsing 5% faster.


NanoCharat

This is absolutely how ram works. My issue with Chrome, however, is that it has severe memory leakage issues after being open for more than an hour or two, does not optimize its ram usage well (if at all) when other programs are being used in the foreground, is especially terrible about privacy and data protection, and goes out of its way to prevent the user from preventing Google trackers for advertisement purposes even when explicitly set not to. It's great for playing flash games (rip) or loading intensive web modules. It just happens to be a privacy nightmare and terrible if you're planning on doing anything else on your pc with it in the background.


seridos

Yea efficient code seems to be an afterthought, if though about at all now. The corruption of excess.


l3etelgeuse

Making the switch to Edge. Can't believe I'm saying this.


Michigan_Forged

I started doing it for the Microsoft rewards and I've never looked back.


SurealGod

I mean, the comparison isn't really that great. The RAM on the Saturn V was engineered SPECIFICALLY to control just the Saturn V and it's onboard computer. That's all. Very deliberate and specific use case for that ram. With RAM we use in modern computers now, they're built to be used by anything that requires RAM which is all programs. And these programs are built to be dynamic with its RAM usage, dependant on a users hardware of which the amount of variations are ungodly.

Th3Dark0ccult

It's all about the graphics probably. NASA sent people to the Moon with command lines, not some fancy GUI with high res textures and the like. That's why they didn't need a lot of RAM and Chrome does.


Comprehensive-Ad3963

As a software engineer, I am quite curious about this. Why does it take more RAM to use Chrome than to go to the moon? I'm assuming it's a combination of two factors: 1) Developers cared more about RAM back then than they do now, and 2) The purposes of both are very different. The software that took us to the moon was very specialized and the math it had to do quite simple.

IIRC one of the Apollo computers only had a number pad for input so you had to both either have the raw command codes you wanted memorized or look them up. There is a cost to going lightweight. (Of course that is an extreme example.)
