In what would become the first scandalously record-breaking Sotheby’s art auction in 1973, taxi magnate Robert Scull and his wife famously made a fortune on 50 artworks from their collection, which included Robert Rauschenberg’s painting Thaw. There, the artist watched as his piece, which he had initially sold for $900, hammered out for a whopping $85,000. As the story goes, Rauschenberg famously shoved Scull and shouted something along the lines of: “I’ve been working my ass off just for you...

Don't Want Google In Your House? Here Are a Few Home-Tech Startups To Watch

curtwoodward writes: Google bought Nest. Then Nest bought Dropcam. Then Nest opened up its platform to tech partners, including... Google. This may not creep everyone out, but for those who don't like the idea of Google's all-seeing eye owning their smart-home devices, there are some small, independent companies developing alternatives.

Mysterious X-ray Signal Hints At Dark Matter

Astronomers using the Chandra X-ray Observatory and the XMM-Newton have recorded an unusual emission of X-ray light from a remote cluster of galaxies which may turn out to be evidence of dark matter. Astronomers think dark matter constitutes 85% of the matter in the Universe, but does not emit or absorb light like “normal” matter such as protons, neutrons and electrons that make up the familiar elements observed in planets, stars, and galaxies. Because of this, scientists must use...

It’s not Roy…

Super short post today because I hit the big 30 and Arsene Wenger has just given me the bad news on my new deal… it’s rolling pay as a play. That man is a total joke… England are now officially out of the World Cup. I find this sad, but not unexpected.

PlayStation Now Prices: $5 for Four Hours of Final Fantasy XIII-2

Sony recently revealed that it would be using the PlayStation Now beta to test different pricing models for the game streaming service.

Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar Review

Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greece was easily one of my favorite real-time strategy games. It was rough, but it captivated me with some of the freshest ideas I'd seen in a while. Hegemony Rome drops almost all of the cleverness of its predecessor and replaces it with a lackluster facsimile poorly concealing an almost hollow frame.Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar follows one of history's most prolific conquerors through his Gallic campaign and the political aftermath.

Patent Trolls Are Mortally Wounded

The Supreme Court has issued its sixth and final patent law ruling this term. Each ruling was unanimous, and each was a clear rebuke to overbroad positions on patent law. Thursday’s opinion in Alice v. CLS Bank was the most important—or at least the most newsworthy—of the half-dozen patent cases this term. With this ruling, the Supreme Court sent a strong message about what is and is not patentable, moving us away from the problem of overbroad, poor-quality software patents.

The failure modes of each drive were different as well. The Intel drive entered a self-destruct mode to prevent it from being used after it was no longer able to guarantee its ability to reliably write, while the Kingston HyperX 3K threw SMART errors and vanished after a reboot. The Samsung 840 simply died without warning. However, it’s worth repeating that the failures didn’t occur until the drives had passed the manufacturer’s stated lifetime write limits many times over—it took almost a year of solid torture-test writes to get them to failure.

if i make money off a website of mine, i will upgrade to paid cloudflare

meowface 13 hours ago | link


Relating to the excellent amount of funding Cloudflare has been getting...


How exactly does Cloudflare afford to be a reverse proxy for millions of domains, at absolutely no charge? Are there some economies of scale I'm missing here? Obviously they make a good amount of revenue from their premium plans, but I suspect the vast, vast majority of all their users are on the free tier.


They're nearly an ISP at this point, so from a very naive outsider's perspective it sounds like they would be bleeding money from this approach.

Not really, CloudFlare doesn't have any 'last mile' to pay for.


reply


meowface 13 hours ago | link


The thing is, it seems to me like a lot of sites that get a ton of traffic still use their free tier. There are no actual bandwidth limits at the free tier, just some missing features. They never require anyone to upgrade.


Even their higher tiers are pretty cheaply priced, including enterprise level: http://ift.tt/He5IEM

They never require anyone to upgrade.


People upgrade to get better service (including the missing features) not because of some artificial limit (like bandwidth). If you upgrade because you want to, not because you have to, you're likely a better customer.


reply


meowface 13 hours ago | link


Personally I don't think bandwidth is an artificial limit, or that it's unreasonable to require an upgrade after a certain cap. A site with 100,000 daily visitors will be able to afford at least the business tier.


reply


jgrahamc 13 hours ago | link


Sure, but why treat a customer like a mobile phone customer who has to worry about what plan they are on to figure out how much they are spending?
