Re: Holodecks aren't just about processing power
Think it might have been "Extreme Risk" from what I recall. It's been a while, I should rewatch it :)
On a geeky side note remember the holodeck techology was actually an offshoot of the transporter technology - http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Holodeck
Ahh well geek fest over :)

Except you forget Mozilla with Gecko?
Think of the children!
I remember this from like June/July when Steve went before the Cupertino council to explain why he was building a Stargate in their town for the Ori to use after he ascended...

Didn't Telewest/NTL get into a shed load of debt putting in the infrastructure? That's nice, they do the work and BT swans in and reaps the benefit. Does this also mean that Virgin also equally gets to use the satellite network Sky does to reach people it doesn't have cabled?
Illegal immigrants are slaughtering themselves at our gates, there are no fraudsters here!
This isn't suprising as markets are becoming increasingly cut-throat, Stevey boy and Billy boy are going to use whatever edge they can to get ahead, the simplest option is to simply not use any of their software.
Of course, you could always uncheck the update! Sadly being a web developer I have it already installed for testing.
I really wish this bubble would burst, social networking sites really aren't all that and I'm a member of three, eventually you've explored everything and poked everyone and then what...all that keeps it going is like this article said, addition of virigin users.
Why is it whenever somebody does this there's this whole argument that gets blown way out of proportion on privacy. The fact is that if you read all 3 of the licenses when you install Warcraft and EVERY time a patch is roled out you'll see they explicitly say they monitor you and if you agree then whats the problem? You could just as soon disagree, stop whining and go play a MUD over Telnet.
I'm quite happy for Blizzard to do this, I don't overly trust them with my life but the fact is I'm paying them good money for a continued gaming experience and if people are abusing the system and Warden stops and slows them up, who am I to complain?
We seem to get lost in the idea because it's not doing all this in plain sight it MUST be wrong, have you considered its doing certain things for your own good?
If anyone is that concerned about Blizzard stealing your photo album, music, e-mail and everything it can get its hands on then DO NOT INSTALL IT it's that simple, either that or hunt down all the software developers Blizzard has issue with and hit them with a large stick.
