  • RAM locations come in powers of two.  Thus a "kilobyte" of RAM is 1024 bytes (not 1000), and a "megabyte" of RAM is (1024 * 1024) bytes (not 1000 * 1000).  There are separate international units ...

  • The phrase "copyright theft", as applied to infringement, is an oxymoron. U.S. copyright is not based on the idea that there are any natural property rights in works. It is an artificial monopoly ...
  • The Magnificent Seven has a Tomatometer rating of 93% (critics) / 88% (audience).  Not up to the 100% (critics) rating of The Seven Samurai, but not exactly chopped liver. It's on the AFI's list of ...
