Acer Aspire Switch 10 E Review
It carries the same Intel Atom Z3735F, a quad-core chip with a base clock of 1.3GHz, backed by just 2 gigabytes of RAM. For storage I'm sitting at my desk typing away, and decide to reach up and tap something on the screen. Doing so, even but ...

Is your child college-bound? What not to buy them for school.
Adoption of eBooks for classroom textbooks is slow and most schools — unless they're specifically making a point to be "all digital" — are still putting paper books on the syllabus, so your kid'll be fine without one. The days of tablet-based ...

Apple reportedly preps biggest iPhone order ever for new devices
The off-year "S" model typically adds features that don't dramatically alter the overall design -- such as the Siri digital voice assistant, added with the iPhone 4S, or the TouchID fingerprint reader, which debuted with the iPhone 5S. Apple may ...

Would 'swamp' coolers work well on hot Seattle days?
As Seattle sweats through a summer that is giving signs of being among the hottest on record, those who have eschewed air conditioning (eh, it's only used 3 days a year!) or live in a place where air conditioning is not an easy option, such as high ...

A lot of these systems have unforgivable design flaws or drastic price and performance compromises, which has left us pessimistic there’s a system that comes anywhere close to that goal. Acer’s Switch 10 E marries a compact, versatile design with improved storage and a super low price point. Under the hood, the Acer Switch 10 E is strikingly similar to the Intel Compute Stick. It carries the same Intel Atom Z3735F, a quad-core chip with a base clock of 1. 3GHz, backed by just 2 gigabytes of RAM. For storage, the Acer 10 has a 64GB internal SSD, plus a 500GB data drive in the detachable keyboard. This system is similar to another laptop sold by Acer called the Switch 10. The Switch 10 E is roughly the same, except with a different processor and added HDD storage in the keyboard, which leads to slight increase in thickness, as well as a... Both laptops will be sold side by side, so you can choose whether you want to sacrifice thickness for that extra interior storage. Bigger, bulkier, and more awkward The Switch 10 earns its namesake by packing all of the components behind the display, with the exception of the data drive, so you can remove the keyboard and use it as a tablet.
Fortran (which started life as FORTRAN, or FORmula TRANslator) was first created by IBM programmer John Backus in 1950. By the time John F. Kennedy was inaugurated, FORTRAN III had been released and FORTRAN had the features with which it would... To a nontrivial extent, it still is. Whereas COBOL was created to be a general purpose language that worked well for creating applications for business and government purposes in which reports and human-readable output were key, FORTRAN was all... Its numeric capabilities meant that Fortran was the language of choice for the first generation of high-performance computers and remained the primary development tool for supercomputers : Platform-specific versions of the language power... The answer is no. ]. Of course, if the strength of Fortran was in the power of its mathematical processing, its weakness was actually getting data into and out of the program. While many scientific applications have begun to move to C++, Java, and other modern languages because of the wide availability of both function libraries and programming talent, Fortran remains an active part of the engineering and scientific... This isn't an exhaustive list of all the Fortran compilers in the world, but rather a survey of some of the packages easily available to those who want to learn the.
