Re: re. recording calls
In the U.S. it depends entirely on the laws of the state one is in. It varies.
Provocative business strategery
Meddling with users' news feeds to manipulate their emotions is what Fox "News" does everyday!
Re: Hell, not again!
Most Tor nodes are operated by the U.S. government.
The NSA eats SSL for breakfast.
Re: close, but...
This is how the Cyanogenmod granular control works. It supplies dummy data to the apps.
Re: Consumer choice
Win8 seems to have been primarily designed by Microsoft's marketing dept. Functionality for business desktops just didn't seem to be a consideration at all.
Re: LOL yet another big FU from MS
All Microsoft had to do was release the tablet UI as just another Windows application that ran at startup on tablets. Forcing Desktop users to use a touchscreen UI is just mindnumbingly stupid.
Re: Thank god I bought VHS
Many VHS tapes had Macrovision copy protection.
Re: Same article?
Agreed. The problem isn't Android per se, it's junkware installed on junk hardware that's the problem. I think the variety of good hardware and good software available to Android users makes it a superior platform!
Re: "Android today is like Microsoft's Windows 3.1"
Porn was made available on VHS.
As a Backup Exec 11d user (actually happy with BE), What would be a good replacement to run on Windows Server 2008R2? I just need to backup Exchange 2010 and some file servers.
I had such high hopes for Lindows. 'tis a shame it didn't succeed.
Re: It's worse than you think.
You may be able to sue them under the American Disabilities act for non-compliance. Worth looking in to.
Re: problem here
I have IMAP access to Gmail set up with Thunderbird. Thunderbird would not connect to Gmail this morning. I was able to login via web, but it was noticeably sluggish.
Tired of the lies
In a country of over 300 million people with over 7.5% unemployment and STEM graduates that cannot find jobs, this constant drum beat by corporations demanding foreign labor because "there aren't enough qualified people to be found locally" is a damned LIE!
Foreign labor is brought in to work for cheap. Period.
The number of H1B visas granted annually should be drastically reduced to only a few thousand or eliminated enitrely.
Re: More adverts, everywhere.
GBL Initialiser, I supposed you've never muted the volume on your TV nor changed the channel when an ad appeared?
Re: Not cool
I think you'll find the Secret Service to be professional and quite cordial.
Let us know how it goes!
Re: I hope JPL uploaded some more audio
No. Sound is dependent on the observer. Sound is nothing more than how air vibrations are modeled in the mind. Without an observer capable of modeling those vibrations, there is no "sound".
Android haz itz: LUKs Manager
LUKS Manager provides on-the-fly encryption (AES by default) to virtual folders on Android devices.
Oracle = SCO
Hope Oracle meets the same fate.
Re: removing IE would also help
No, in the U.S. anti-trust case it was the fact that M$ started bundling IE for free and illegally used their effective monopoly to eliminate the market that Netscape was selling their Navigator product to.
Sounds like America
Where paramilitary raids and pet executions have become common.
And if the guy that founded the suckiest antivirus software evah doesn't involve himself in politics then he shouldn't bitch when politics involves itself in you! All that is necessary for Evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.
Hot TNA Action!
I know that whenever I want to reverse-transcribe a genetic system, TNA is always at the top of the list!
Software patents should be eliminated entirely. A patent on "slide to unlock" is absurd. We've been "sliding to unlock" things for centuries. That is is done with software now is in no way new and unique. All these patent wars do is raise the prices for consumers.
re: file locks
I've used Unlocker for years to, um, unlock files. It works great for most files (sometimes it will prompt you to let it unlock a file after a reboot).
And this is different how?
I read Troy Scheffler's letter. Unfortunately, it sounds like your average Bush follower here in the States. Pretty typical rant that could just as well have been heard on Fox "News". I fail to see how his letter got him suspended given the fact that a solid 25% of America holds similar right wing, gun nut, racist beliefs. He's just parroting what he's heard from Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Michelle Malkin, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Wayne LaPierre, Dennis Prager, Virgil Goode-- the list goes on and on...
It's a pretty typical screed here in Jesusland.
