As an owner of some Apple kit (and and iPad 1 and iPad 2), as well as some Android kit (Nexus 4 phone) I sort of want a reason to upgrade .. but can't find one.
I'm sat staring at my iPad 2 and never really worry it's not fast enough for what I want. Yes, the retina display is lovely when I look at my wife's iPad 3, but can I still read the screen? Yes.
It's 33% lighter than then iPad 4, but remember the iPad 4 is heavier than the iPad 2 because of all the Retina stuff. Therefore the iPad Air is smaller than my 2, but not massively lighter.
I've never quite understood what's so hard about tracking them down. My computer knows "where" their server is as it quite easily gets data from their website. So why can't you just 'follow the packets' and end up at the server?
I assume they are located somewhere not-so-easy to walk in and bust, or they are located in so many places that it's impractical.
On the management side several people must be looking after the site, "unpaid", full time. What's in it for them .. except great risk?
You can't help but admire their tenacity. I don't think they'll ever be 'busted' out of existence, but I can see them claiming their mission is complete at some point and just gracefully turning everything off.
p.s. TPB, please can I have some of your servers you no longer need? :)
The bloke on the video is Adam Kokesh, hardly someone who is trying to keep their identity secret.
Needs a purpose
Like many comments before me, I don't see this replacing the systems already in schools as it doesn't offer anything that they don't already, at least not when your view is tilted towards programming.
I've received my invite from RS to purchase one; I really WANT to need this, but I'm struggling to find an excuse. Anything I may want to do on it (program, view videos, whatever) is already well served by my existing PC, my existing media players, etc.
"Given the amount of films she has appeared in since Y2K, I don't think the term "failure" applies."
Yes, such memorable appearances as "Girl In Bar" (The Communicator), "Woman" (Take Out), "Tough Asian" (Back on Topps), "Ghetto Girl Three" (Hoodrats 2: Hoodrat Warriors) and "Triage Nurse" (I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant) ... and a bunch of other extra parts.
She's definitely hit the big time ...
Got two cardboard boxes in the post today to return my 2G and 4G nano devices. Don't use them, but don't want them going up in smoke, either.
I suspect they will refurbish the ones they get back and send them back out again, hence the six weeks.
