OS X 10.10 Yosemite shows new Finder actions

Just kidding ;) But this big icon which simply does nothing is inside OS X 10.10 Beta 1 seeded to developers. It is soooo obvious that I'd have expected Apple to remove it but I guess I can live with that.

Rootbeer - Java on a GPU

Java is certainly not known for its performance but it seems like there is a new way to run Java code (typically math-ops) on your GPU right from Java.
According to the dev algorithms should be at least O(n^2) or even O(n^3) to see a performance gain. Serialization is too heavy below that and the result might be even slower than a normal Java implementation.

The only limit seems to be CUDA - as far as I am aware of NVIDIAs model is only supported on Windows (XP - 8).

Have a look at the GIT Repo for more details.

I will definitely give this a try and post more on that.
