Apple's days are numbered and they are becoming increasingly desperate in an attempt to direct some kind of attention onto themselves as they realise consumers don't want orwellian 1984-computers which tell them what they want and don't let them do their own thing, no matter how shiny and white they may be.
"We just realised nobody wants our OS, so we'll say nobody needs it and hope it comes true"
One problem I can see...
When you turn, wouldn't everything slide off it?
What about this one?
I assume this is DNS based
EVERYONE should get their DNS directly from the root servers or run their own DNS server. It's becoming the only way to avoid censorship and interference with your connection.
Yet another reason to ditch Vermin Media too.
Put a laser weapon in one? or maybe some missiles? Even just heavy objects with sufficient heat shielding not to be destroyed in the atmosphere and sufficient mass to make a small crater of my target?
Just wondering, you know...
I was probably voting for him before ("Democacy is being allowed to vote for the person you dislike the least" - he may be an idiot, but less of an idiot than Brown or whoever the lib dem leader is this week), but this has increased that chance significantly.
firefox has jumped the shark really. Personally, I am only using it until something less bloated is released, developed by people who don't chase the latest 'ooh shiny' useless feature that make it look ugly and reduces usability.
Office out, Openoffice in
So it seems like time to go 100% Openoffice when Office 2003 is too old. I was still hoping M$ would give an option to have a normal interface in office 2010, but it seems sadly no.
They finally gave us features to completely disable that completely shit URL bar.
This happened last month.
Admittedly an impressive one, but thefts are not rare in EVE.
@Richard - the bank is 100% player run and owned. There is no official bank service in the game. Money most definitely is finite, even though they have a lot of it.
@Anon "Laissez-faire or double standards" - buying ISK via time codes is a lot more expensive than via 3rd parties. It is also well controlled so there is no chance of scamming while all the chinese gold farmers will just take your money and never send you the cash, or infect you with a keylogger then clear your cash out.
@Feef - scamming, metagaming, etc is all within the rules, he only got b& for selling ISK for IRL money, which is not allowed.
Since when have we used non metric units, miles excepted? As far as I know, America is the only country not to use metric.
I don't even know any non metric units apart from miles and a very rough idea of feet.
Well, to be honest, that's fucking stupid.
I use firefox, but I Fdo use IE occasionally, if the copy of windows 7 I buy doesn't have it, first thing I will install after FF and NOD32 is IE.
Same for Windows media player.
Also, what about people without internet access via another PC? how are they going to be able to download an installer or whatever for IE/FF?
I would love to get hold of an electric guitar version for myself though.
@ 'legal question'
@Which ISP will definitely not go down the Phorm route?
IIRC, Be are safe. They are the only ISP really worth considering anyway, with Sky coming a distant second, who afaik are also safe.
That URL bar improvement is well known, except it still searches in titles, still searches bookmarks, still searches from the middle of a URL rather than just the start (e.g. if I type google then I would expect it to match google.co.uk and not a website with google in the middle of the URL, or in the title)
Does anyone care?
...Didn't think so.
Is the Awful bar fixed yet?
I am still using Firefox 2 and will until it either gets too old (change browser) or they give an option to disable it in Ff 3.
Explains why people are pirating XP but not vista.
"Apple encourages the widespread use of multiple anti-virus utilities"
Great way to reduce performance and cause conflicts between them.
Also, I see apple recommend norton and mcafee... Looks like apple need to do some research into this 'security' business...
Also, it seems the end of mac fanboys' smug 'macs don't have vulnerabilities' is ending at last... Of course macs have vulns, just until now nobody has bothered to exploit them. Windows is possibly more secure due to regular patches.
"Tavares also predicted a long-term shift to communal car ownership."?
More like Communist car ownership, am I right?
Never going to happen.
"aims to reduce consumer security"
Got that right. Give away your personal data, not to mention only one login to compromise to gain access to everything.
