Depends what your use case is.
There are a few departments at Bombardier Aerospace that are equipped with $15k workstations.
I'm sure these laptops might be of use to them, should they require some mobility...
Lynx browser for Mac? Last updated in 2014...
When installing servers, always plug the redundant power supplies into different power strips in the rack.
Each power strip should go to its own upswhich should be plugged into different circuits at the wall.
The old HP Colour LaserJet 4500 meets most of your requirements.
You could park your car on top of it and it would laugh at you.
What it won't do, though, is print for you. Sure, it will warm up for 45 minutes, then make a lot of printing type noises, and finally barf out the entire contents of the magenta toner.
It might also give you a paper feed error, so you think it might have actually tried to do its job...
Xerox workcenter and newer HP LaserJet printers run a high risk of needing new formatter boards if you power them off before they have completely finished powering up.
I won't be sad to see them go the way of the dinosaurs.
Unreliable spinning rust they are.
23:00 closing time? Ouch.
Pubs here are open until 01:00 or 02:00 during the week, and until 03:00 on Friday and Saturday.
The convenience stores have to stop selling alcohol at 23:00 though...
You could say it is a spaghetti incident waiting to happen.
$30k two months salary for someone in IT?
Where are these jobs that pay $15k a month?
Ahhh....Those who can't figure out when to use "an" and "a", and who can't spell " spelling", off with their hedz!
Bought my Mac Mini in 2012, maxed out the RAM and swapped in an ssd.
Was given a Lenovo T420 by my employer.
I have a BB Z10 and an original Moto G LTE.
I haven't seen any convincing reason to replace any of it.
That's not malware, it's "opt-in", value added software!
You did opt-in, didn't you? I mean, you bought the laptop right?
Oh, you thought the value it added was for you? Silly person, why should it add value to you?
Down voted for gratuitous use of expletives.
Your argument may be a good one, but it loses much with the language.
Drives so crap that even Toshiba puts other vendor HDDs in their laptops.
The owner of the last company I worked for made an announcement at the company Christmas party in 2008 during the recession in Canada.
"We made a profit this year even with the recession, but the profit was the same as last year. Because we didn't increase profits there will not be any raises, and last year's raise will be rolled back."
Then a few minutes later he tells us about the brand new Maserati he just bought, so he could give last year's model to his son.
It was the last company party I went to. I left for a competitor and a $10k raise a month later.
Well, the occupant is taking it lying down...
Just make sure you purchase a return ticket.
Speaking of gas lines...
Pretty much every time any sewer system repairs are done in my neighborhood, the city manages to break a natural gas line.
They hit the one that feeds several neighbouring blocks, and the flames were a good twenty feet high until the gas company arrived to shut the line.
No injuries or explosions yet.
I'll take jail.
Keep those <blink> tags away from me!
I loved my Playbook too.
I still prefer its UI to Android or iOS, just as I prefer BBOS 10's UI.
How am I supposed to give Kinder eggs to my kids now?
They love those eggs.
Ones and zeros? You were cutting edge!
All I had was zeros.
Userfriendly was/is popular with many people due to its active message board/forum.
I will admit it has been several years since I last visited so I may be wrong and it may have died out.
Here in Montreal, Quebec, I had to wait 20 hours for emergency surgery for a complete bowel obstruction. And I came in by ambulance screaming from pain evey time I was moved even slightly.
They pumped me full of morphine, stuck me on a bed in a hall, and after almost 10 hours they got around to doing an ultrasound to find said obstruction.
I almost died during the surgery too.
The weird part? I still think the public health system did a fair job.
I think it was too late by the time he reached the hot dog vendor, he'd already polluted his body with alcohol.
I often think that engine start/stop systems are another way for manufacturers to make money.
You are adding a lot of wear and tear to your starter, and I'm betting those starters have some fancy doodads that result in a higher replacement cost for the customer.
And how easy they could make it for people to steal the children's data.
Direct from TechData maybe?
Or do they not have an online store for consumers?
I actually got OS/2 Warp 3 to install after a couple of tries and a floppy drive replacement.
I kept it for a couple of days and then went back to Windows because I was a teenager and wanted to play games.
It was a nice OS though.
I'd suggest the use of spiral nails, they should fly a little straighter. :)
And you should be able to use it while horseback riding, wind-surfing, or skydiving.
Have you seen our winter Olympic athletes and their medals? And our hockey players?
Not so sure it's bogus claim. :P
Check out the "Classic", it has a bigger screen than the Q10 and has a real keyboard and the optical trackpad.
That would be the province of Alberta.
Be fair, the Audi was just trying to get closer so it could hit on the soccer mom Lexus.
I will be naming my autonomous car "Christine".
Chips, gravy, and cheese...so a poutine then? :)
Of course poutine requires cheese curds...
Have you ever driven around a track in a Formula 1600 car?
You'll never look at a 1.6L 4 pot the same again.
I think I may have the disease, and I'm not even 40 yet.
Insurance rates are higher for vehicles used for business as it is understood they will be on the road more hours of the day, covering many more miles than a vehicle used solely for commuting.
More hours/miles per day equals higher probability of an accident.
I would imagine that if it is that small it would be pretty easy to fit in most anywhere.
What flavour was the ice cream?
Chunky monkey? Late night snack?
Please don't say Phish Food.
"Kanye West plays with himself.
That's not an instrument.
The skin flute is one of the oldest and most widely played musical instruments."
Ah, but to be properly played as a flute it requires a second party to be involved...
So you mean they need a permissions system like BlackBerry has?
I'm given a list of requested permissions and can choose whether or not to enable them. They advise that certain app features may not work correctly if permissions are disabled, but the app will still launch.
Middle of a meeting someone stands up.
"My phone is dying, I just need to pop off to the loo."
They really need a Canadian bureau, I suggest basing it out of Montreal...
I can offer my cellar as office space...
One night at my parent's country place, when I was much younger, we learned that the old electric blanket was missing some insulation on the wires inside the blanket.
This was discovered when my mother checked on me in the night and felt my skin tingling.
I woke up feeling full of energy. :)
It seems to be common practice here in Canada to have a ground strap bolted to the water supply pipe for the house.
I think I might have two ground straps in my home...
"That was it. I was, and am currently, viewing it on my mobe.
My apologies Ed, I figured the content would be constant across platforms."
What do think this is, Microsoft?
