The Trouble With Sex Robots

https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/07/17/opinion/sex-robots-consent.html

>LONDON — Frigid Farrah. That’s the imaginatively alliterative name of the sex robot that’s yours to rape for just $9,995. Or rather, that’s the name of the “personality” you would set your Roxxxy TrueCompanion robot to if you wanted to find her not too “appreciative” when you “touched her in a private area,” according to the company’s website.

>Sex robots are coming, warns a new report from the Foundation for Responsible Robotics. Indeed, many are already available and shipping worldwide.

>This is not a niche issue. A 2016 study by the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany found that more than 40 percent of the 263 heterosexual men surveyed said they could imagine using a sex robot. One company, the California-based Abyss Creations, already ships up to 600 hyper-realistic sex dolls per year to customers worldwide.


What is it with feminists and their fascination with the sex lives of undesirable men who are presumably the market for these robots? This is like the 5th major article on sex robots on a major lib newspaper in these past few weeks. What do they have to fear?

>Explain a stupid faggot basic thing
So I have heard that GPU's are actually, a shitton of small procesors, that job is to calculate graphics.
But why can't they be used as CPU? What would happen if, for example, somehow was able to force GTX1080 to work as CPU, shouldn't it make computer calculate all it's thing faster?

gpus are good at doing very simple tasks, and cpus are good at doing very complicated tasks.

a gpu will do a simple task much faster because it has a ton of little cores that can do these tasks in parallel with eachother, and a cpu with do a couple extremely complicated tasks much faster because they have several very powerful cores.


there is much more to it than that and i'm not very educated on the subject so ask others for more info.

Sometimes it's nice to just pay a little extra to get something decent with no effort. Sure it's not too much effort to get drivers working and shit but I have disposable cash so I don't care.

Also the terminal looks very nice on OSX.

What's the most reliable option for wireless networking?

My wireless card has been dropping connection a lot recently and I'm looking for a replacement. Unfortunately most wireless cards seem to develop reliability issues after a year or two if they don't have one right out of the box, if reviews are to be trusted.

I'm wondering, do I get a new wireless card, go for a powerline adapter, or buy a second modem and use that like a wireless card? I can't do ethernet as it would involve extensive rewiring I'm not willing to do.

My worries about getting a new wireless card are the reliability issue. My concerns with power line adapters are that my house is old, built in the 40s or 50s if not earlier. I'm not sure that will work well with wiring so old. I'm thinking the best option is a second router but I'm not really familiar with how to configure that and any traps that might be associated with it.

Let me know what you think the best method is and what products you think are good. Also tell me if I missed any other options. Thanks.

If you have an issue with wireless and not routing, get a new access point. A nice commercial access point will have better functionality and longevity than most router access points, and it would be overkill for your use, so I don't see any reason why not to if you have the money. I'd stay away from powerline, I actually don't know anyone who ever installed one in person so I can't attest to reliability
>>
>>61429753
I think that's kinda the idea I was going for with getting a second router and connecting it to my PC. I'd have my cable modem running to my 1st router downstairs and then transmitting wirelessly to my 2nd router upstairs which would send the signal to my PC via ethernet and to any other wireless devices as well.

What's the difference between an proper access point and a router though?
>>
>>61429753

I bought a powerline set a few months ago (TP-Link AV1000). Haven't had a single problem yet. I only get around 150-200Mbps, but that's better than I was getting with my wirless connection. I live in a 4 unit apartment complex that was built in 1973 so I wasn't expecting it to perform to its full potential.

I'm happy with my iPhone 5S, except for its shitty camera and body design. Hell, I would have been happy with the 4S, were it not for the fact it was discontinued. Maybe I should have stuck with it.

Anyway, it's time to look for a new phone. I'm thinking about getting the One Plus One. That's going pretty far back, especially considering that the One Plus 5 is out. All of the flagship phones seem impressive, but excessive. On one hand, it might be a waste to pay $200 for the One while the 5 is on sale for $500. On the other hand, I don't really need all of the 5's upgraded features.

What does /g/ think? Should I get the One Plus One? I don't want to buy anything excessive.

Oh. I see it's in the same price range. Is it a better phone than the One Plus One?
