are you all self taught, or did you attend a certified lgbtq+ school to learn?
So, how's Google or Microsoft dethrone Apple?
Android -> fail
Google Glass -> fail
self-driving car -> fail
Google Plus -> fail

Google Now -> fail
Android Pay -> fail
Andy Rubin's Robotic Division -> fail
Nest -> fail
Google Cloud Platform -> fail
Project Loon -> fail
Project Ara -> fail
Project Tango -> fail (and uses Apple chips with PrimeSense)
Google Contact Lenses -> vaporware
Google Daydream -> fail

I seriously hope you guys don't do this.

Altright aren't retarded because they're nazis or whatever, they're retarded because they use proprietary centralized software and expect to have their freedom respected.
E2E encryption is the only way I choose to communicate in my private life. If people want to get a hold of me, they are stuck with E2E.
I'm not even alt-right. I just value my privacy. Centralized doesn't mean shit when its open source and E2E encrypted.
Until they take their servers down / black list your IP or account. But if the server is open source as well as your client then you could run your own instance independent of the original developers, thus decentralizing it and keeping the power over your communications out of the hands of strangers.
I see no reason to do so. If such a thing is going to happen, they will go after the more mainstream shit first (WhatsApp, Protonmail, etc), giving me time to react due to the shit that I use.

Hey - can i get some feedback on this?
I just wrote it - It's a modified implementation of deep convolutional generative adversarial networks with a focus on creating artwork.
Basically, I've written scripts that get huge datasets of artwork, and then train a GAN on it. The GAN is a collection of 2 neural nets (a generator and discriminator) that use each other to get better and better at
>generating things that look like they're from the dataset
>discriminating between real dataset images and generated ones
over time, it'll learn to paint whatever type of art you feed it, and if you scroll down in the readme you can see results. (pic related is after it looked at 14,000 landscape paintings).
Please help me out with what I could do to make it more interesting - and just feedback in general - literally anything is appreciated. I wanted to write some stuff to accompany it (maybe some stuff about machine creativity or whether or not what the network generates is "art", but i dont want to sound like a goddamn loon...
/g/ I need your help.

a) How much do I charge him
b) How much would a professional app company charge for this
c) Should I charge him hourly or agree on a lump sum up front
d) Should I ask for money up front
Don't let me down /g/uys
Average rates for specialists go for $30/h.
>B- The rest
A professional company can provide lower rates due to having more monkeys to program.
>C) hourly or sum
Provide him both alternatives offer a per hour charge or offer him a a 48h Value payment( ie: he pays for the entire time of your work despite you spending more or less then 48 hours to make it)
>D- Money up front
If you feel like he's going to weasel out on you I'd ask for a small deposit of 2 hours work.
Manufacturers are putting resistors, capacitors, diodes, and other small electronic components inside the printed circuit board itself to save space.
How do you feel about this?

What even is the best linux distro for laptops? I have always had problems with them and am considering going to a mac.
xubuntu: huge screentearing problems
Solus: Lack of nvidia optimus support and bootup failures
ubuntu: who the fuck likes the default distro. I tried. Also screentearing.
wtf do you guys use? Is it worth it anymore? Serious considering going to a corporate supported os system rather than a community of neckbeards working together to create an OS.
Google needs to be destroyed.
I just bought an iPhone 6s from ebay and when I try to set up the phone, it says it's linked to an Apple ID.
Does anyone know how to unlock the phone? I think it is an icloud lock from a previous owner using Find My iPhone.
