SKY TV in New Zealand are NOT showing the first round of the MotoGP in Qatar and it sound like they may not show any of the rest of the series either. Check out their official statement here. (Opens in new window)
Here’s a quote if the link doesn’t work:
We are aware that there is strong interest amongst Moto GP fans as to whether SKY will be showing the first race of the series from Qatar on Monday morning.
Negotiations between SKY and the Moto GP rights holders have stalled and there is a strong possibility that the Moto GP Race scheduled for Monday morning may not be shown on SKY.
We understand that if the race is not on SKY many passionate fans will be disappointed and this is something that we would very much like to avoid.
Our teams will remain on standby over the weekend to be able to add the race to the schedule if a breakthrough occurs right up until the start of the race.
Our offer for the rights remains and should we miss the Qatar race then we will continue to try and secure the rights to show the remaining races.
If significant developments occur then we will notify you via Facebook and our Twitter feed.
Also please keep checking the EPG (Electronic Programming Guide) and SKY Sport website www.skysport.co.nz for schedule updates.
So…how are you going to watch the 2013 MotoGP opener in Qatar?? Well, there are a few options including downloading and watching torrents after the race is finished as well as purchasing a subscription at MotoGP.com among others. There’s a new page up at FaceBook with plenty of ideas so go check that out. Plenty of angry Kiwis there sharing links and tips on where and how to watch the MotoGP in New Zealand now that SKY has let us down.
AMD claims that the delay in transitioning from 28nm to 20nm highlights the beginning of the end for Moore’s Law.
AMD was one of the first consumer semiconductor vendors to make use of TSMC’s 28nm process node with its Radeon HD 7000 series graphics cards, but like every chip vendor it is looking to future process nodes to help it increase performance. The firm told The INQUIRER the time taken to transition to 20nm signals the beginning of the end for Moore’s Law.
Famed Intel co-founder and electronics engineer Gordon Moore predicted that total the number of transistors would double every two years. He also predicted that the ‘law’ would not continue to apply for as long as it has. It was professor Carver Mead at Caltech that coined the term Moore’s Law, and now one of Mead’s students, John Gustafson, chief graphics product architect at AMD, has said that Moore’s Law is ending because it actually refers to a doubling of transistors that are economically viable to produce.
Gustafson said, “You can see how Moore’s Law is slowing down. The original statement of Moore’s Law is the number of transistors that is more economical to produce will double every two years. It has become warped into all these other forms but that is what he originally said.”
ARM CPUs, lasers, and Wi-Fi make firing this weapon an experience like no other.
Through the tracking scope, you locate the thing you want to shoot, whether it’s a metal plate like we were hitting on the range, a game animal, a tree, or whatever. You place the center reticle over the target and depress the red tagging button just forward of the trigger, which causes the tracking scope’s range finder to briefly illuminate the target. The range finder is a powerful laser, rated at 75W and pulsed for an average power of 1mW, which measures the distance to the target in yards (1 yard is 0.9 meters, for metric readers) and displays that number in the upper left side of the scope’s field of view. Once “tagged,” the target gains a red pip. The scope image also reorients itself in a move that can be confusing the first few times it happens.
An extremely interesting video by Vsauce of YouTube about what would occur if the sun was to suddenly vanish.

Richard Dawkins, the patron saint of nonbelievers, caused a stir earlier this year during a debate with the Archbishop of Canterbury, who noted that his opponent is often described as the world’s most famous atheist. “Not by me,” Dawkins replied before providing his standard explanation—a supreme being is possible but highly improbable—which led a London newspaper to proclaim that the world’s most notorious skeptic was hedging his bets. Far from it. Dawkins, at 71, remains an unbending and sharp-tongued critic of religious dogmatism. Like any scientist who challenges the Bible and its lyrical version of creation, he spends a great deal of time defending Charles Darwin’s theory that all life, including humans, evolved over eons through natural selection, rather than being molded 10,000 years ago by an intelligent but unseen hand.
