Re: @Unlimited - if ipv4 addresses are so rare
Because they are not (yet) rationing them by price. That may happen, but for now small quantities are still cheap. If you want lots you cant have them at all.
At some point Amazon EC2 won't be able to get addresses then you will have to switch... Google already went to ipv6 internally.
Some of their stuff is ok if you install openwrt on it - which they support, which is nice.
Wait till you see the damage from a small earthquake. Think of the kittens!
My computer does not need to measure the rotation of the earth. It does however need to agree what the time is with other computers for security reasons. It might also have to tell humans to do stuff at particular times, but that need not be that precise.
Microsoft can't buy them now, antitrust reasons, nor can Google, Samsung or Apple. Dell now has too much debt, and HP is scared off mobile now. A smaller buyer might turn up, eg Lenovo or Hauwei or someone I suppose. The patents could be split off.
Would anyone buy a hybrid? Its a more expensive hard drive, or a crappyier flash. Neither one thing nor the other. It only sort of makes sense in a laptop where only 1 fits, but there are good reasons for 100% flash there anyway.
You can. You can have a VOIP number at any exchange you like. Or any country.
Re: Current second-level domains
Yes quite a few. Germany used not to do second level for example.
"Those who would rather their Pi OS conform to higher standards of OS purity will therefore have to look elsewhere."
You mean not buy a Pi that is - these non free components are needed to boot the thing alas.
Beer for purity (if German).
Re: Killer App suggestion
Isn't that what everyone does when moving and waitin for adsl? I used giffgaff, real unlimited data for £12 a month. With HSPA+ you can stream video if you want.
Netgear have http://www.brightsideofnews.com/news/2012/10/9/netgear-announces-new-10gbe-switches.aspx so more should start to arrive soon,
...disagree with the panel at Cloudcamp you are supposed to red card them and er storm the stage... (actually I was on the panel for a bit).
You don't even need an O2 mobile of your own, you can use someone else's if they do not have o2 broadband. So the people at O2 told me... Moved to fibre now though.
See this post about what you need to direct connect PCIe
So you need a small amount of device to deal with clocking and master/slave issues but not a lot...
Somehow the prices managed to go up I think. My Eee cost around £135 from memory and used it for many years. £200+ was ridiculous. I think that was to pay the Windows tax plus the higher specs Windows needed. If only the Linux distros they shipped with hadnt been so bad, as most people do not know how to install Ubuntu or whatever to make them work.
... there is no 100Gb ethernet upstream. No point having 10Gb on server without faster uplink.
Flame appears to be a perfectly normal piece of Lua software
Google cache as sited hosed...
They are openly saying they will break EU law? Makes the due diligence easier, just say no. Clearly good scope for EU companies in this market then.
And mobile Me is still crap, gives you less than what you can get for free from Google, but for $99 a year. They have not added any convincing services to it since launch either. It was the only way to do over the air sync of calenders and contacts, but now you can do those with Google instead, though the Jobs phone cant have more than one Exchange account.
Nokia is not going to win in services either - look at the Ovi music store.
WP7 phones are hard to differentiate with Microsoft locking down the platform specs to try to stop Android style fragmentation.. oops.
