I'm a 19 year old university student from the UK who is learning my way around the programming world. Interested in physics, electronics and IT as well. My aim in life to get somewhere in programming or become an astrophysicist, and live into 2100 :D

I've made a few tweaks for jailbroken iOS.

comment How do URNs work?
So how can a URN be a type of URI, as the definition of a URI is species how to access a resource. What's the point of a URN if a URL does the same plus some?

comment How does a CD drive know where to look on a CD?
@Psycogeek, it is pretty good, I read it before asking here, it explains the bumps and that a laser is used to read them, but it doesn't say how the CD drive knows which bumps to read.

@Ramhound, well that's not really possible, often the disk will have a higher capacity than the RAM, and if you say it reads it to the HDD, you can read discs when the hard drive is full.

MAC and Mac are different things, one is an address used on all network connected devices, the other is a computer made by Apple.

comment What is the reason for CPUs being so small?
With the heatsink, laptops have very small heatsinks yet they do the job, how come desktop heatsinks are so much bigger, that they wouldn't be able to dissapate the heat from an oversized chip. With the distance between transistors, surely even just enlarging the chip by 2mm, would gain performance without a loss
