beat me, but i researched ;)
maybe because they changed the article to a closer, yet still inaccurate number.
yeah... this stopped me mid sentence.
according to my drug dealer a pound is 448 grams... according to google it's 453.592.
i have the exact same experience (not being able to find a fucking thing) with 8.1...
where did the "Open With..." option go? Where the hell is the photo viewer? where are all my printer options? sure as hell not where they used to be.
this whole dumb it down to make it tablet friendly shit has to stop. where was the market demand for these hybrid pieces of shit? oh right, it never existed. THAT is why they are having so much trouble designing something that works...
I loved masters of the teras kasi...Thok VS Hoar! Evil Luke! Mara Jade! Gameplay wasn't stand out... But didn't suck by any means.
Still consider it to be the second most fun star wars game to play... Behind KoTOR.
If you absolutely need an android app on your phone... You're doing IT wrong.
Fuck that... Windows 10 can stay far, far away from any of my devices.
i had this exact same experience at time warner during one of their "we're going to test 'metered pricing' (caps) in your area".
paid about $20 more a month than residential, but i got almost yearly speed upgrades... 4x the upstream... network priority (net neutrality be damned!)... business support... and free install with a contract! they asked about other services on the first sale... but never again.
i kind of want it again now... dropped it during the recession to save 340/yr :D
Yep, I've got a few as backups... But I have a nasty habit of spilling the bong directly in my keyboard... 3 times in the last 18yrs have my keyboards died this way.
why can't i get and easy to copy-paste list of the rubes who put their name to this drivel?
capitalism works, people don't.
that's why we regulate people with laws.
I'm glad it was a feature-mature product... I still use cs6, and can't see any reason to ever subscribe. I'll keep a win7 box running forever if I have to.
that chick that doesn't use a hairdryer... is an EYELINER ENTHUSIAST.
holy fucking hell...
i figured i would seen billions for the total with the UAE involved...
i was a bit worried about the verification, having to provide all my info to someone other than my registrar...
turns out it was a bit of a joke... no actual personally identifiable information needed, no email verification links... just one more step in the registration process.
it's about as effective as that button that said "I am over 18" that i used to click all the time when i was 16... man, the 90s...
Windows phone succeeded once... It was called version 7.5.
Then they started playing "me too" instead of staying on their own path. You can't out apple apple, and ya can't out Droid Droid... I used to love my windows phone, now I pray someone else matches the picture quality of my 1020 before it give up the ghost.
VTech has been the dominate producer of kid's tech for over 30 years... This isn't some new manufacturer dangerously heading into unfamiliar territory.
VTech was always a good example of how not to do things... One... Two... Shree. Shree i say!
indeed. Mr. Jobs was a world renowned turd polisher, and some would argue the best that ever existed...
flash has only recently been overtaken as the best (read: widest support,lowest resource impact) way to design interactive web apps and animation.
in fact it was dominating the web 7yrs before this author thinks it had promise... at least that was the first time i authored a flash file.
i'll bash flash with the rest of em... but fucking hell, it was bliss compared to RealMedia anything.
most things based on convenience are...
plenty of angst here... but some of it has died down from the loss of social integration with winphone 8.
sadly the writing has been on the wall since 7.5, microsoft created an amazing phone OS that was faster at getting things done than any other... and has since hobbled it in an effort to play "me too".
while i'm very angry at what they've done to winphone... i'm not about to go after other users(?).
time to prepare for another two years with my 1020 and order a replacement battery.
maybe i can finally get a jailbreak out of this...
I suppose it would be selfish of me to demand the flexibility of buying a $30 router and making it as capable as a $150 with custom firmware... But I'm relatively poor.
Whatever... All my game consoles are modified, DMCA be damned. I wont be caught mucking about with emergency services coms... So I guess I needn't worry.
That distraction wont work now that EVERYONE knows the top heavy Asian is a pen-tester.
Not sure if the provision got renewed but... There was a part of the patriot act that defined an attack on a *private* network as a terrorist act.
The reason they chose to specify private, I suspect, is crony capitalism. It would have made the RIAA and its goons... terrorists for their attacks on the various *public* P2P networks of the day.
Expect more of this as the powers that be seek control over the digital realm... They will vilify anyone capable of defending themselves against big brother.
pff, pirating is WAY better. no buffering, player of choice, etc...
it's rewarding this type of licensing bullshit to give them your money... you are still in violation of the law AND you paid them for the privilege.
maybe i need to read the document, but what stops them from claiming delays for 10 yrs...
or a licensing agreement so they offload the requirement to third parties? no new fiber is installed, but AT&T gains the 12.5mil capacity. i guess i could choose not to deal with my local co-op *directly*...
jesus christ, we need to just nationalize internet *access* in this country like the highways... and actually be responsible about it this time...
should have bought a pc... and an android phone.
you probably can't afford good speakers either anyway, so why bother?
 almost forgot the icon... DOH!
"dangerously-close-to" is just another way of saying "actually-not-in-any-way", but i understand it would have taken longer to type. i can hear the difference in the high res tracks... but i do listen through professional studio level reference monitors.
i'd prefer discrete tracks/instruments over higher frequency sampling, but i'll take what i can get.
Hahahaha... Games of War...
Nice try though...
as of a few months ago (when i finally uninstalled it), it was still calling itself "macromedia flash" when it would hang.
it almost made me wonder if i was in the right millennia...
Anyone using the site as it was intended... Certain features were only available with verified ID.
Which makes complete sense... It would be a rapist's playground if it were actually anonymous.
If any of these news sites would post a link to the databases so I can check for my email... Been about 10yrs, but I guess delete requests weren't really honored.
you forgot the guy who says "stop playing with semantics, you know damn well what they mean. you can't revoke a license to a physical good without possessing that object. numpties..."
i think it sucks for the people who rely on this work for income.
if they had other talents/passions/better ways of making money, wouldn't they be doing that instead?
i'm glad i got to see the world before this whole "don't offend ANYONE, EVER!" shit started getting out of hand...
"They are being used as props. I would argue that the males attending the events objectify the women FAR less than the people who hire them."
this is exactly what i thought when the wording of the OP was attacked, they literally are things in this instance. moving cardboard essentially.
I'm all for testing this hypothesis... I don't believe local government could be much worse than the ISP duopoly around here.
Thankfully the way has been cleared to find out which of us is correct. I don't understand why the opposing side is so against letting the invisible hand of the market sort it out... Oh right, Bailout Mentality.
ROT IN HELL KAY HAGAN!
i wonder why the "free market" is so scared of the competition...

To quote Bart Simpson...
God, Schmod... I want my monkey man.
Flawed, but it works... Why should handicapped people be the only ones capable of superhuman feats?
I guess I can see disabling myself if I have to...
And has since I installed 8.1 last year.
As with everything... Sucks for the unlucky.
$20 added to my bill per month... $480 over the term, when the phone itself (at the time of contract signing) costs almost exactly that.
add in that i get more data and minutes than a comparable ($ wise) pay as you go plan... AND that i will not find myself without need of a phone for those two years... i'm far from an idiot, just a realistic guy who can actually do math.
i believe the point was that the smart people running these companies know that it is in their best interest to do so. therefore those "hired cheaply" are done for legitimate reasons like skill or experience, or in the non-poaching pact... corporate profits. not whatever the -ism of the day is.
it's on the "system bar" or whatever on the right side. i hated to admit it, but it's quicker and easier.
didn't read the article, only here to the applaud you for the chumbawamba reference.
i'm a total halo fan boy and i approve this message.
aside from the single player story, every iteration has only made it more and more CoD-ified.
love that Halo Wars tho. it was nice to see it in it's original vision, even if it was a simplistic version.
while Microsoft Game Studios has funded some of the best games of the past decade, i don't think that's what the author was thinking. i'm leaning achievements outside of the games themselves. like pushing sony into online multiplayer, after the dreamcast failed and console online multiplayer died with it.
you can keep your tarballs...
windows does not need to die, it just needs the proper attention.
in a perfect world this would spur an exploit cold war of sorts... with microsoft and google blowing through their respective cash hordes. pouring over each others software... each trying to defame the other (not that M$ could lose much fame over the quality of its code). it would be glorious.
billions pumped back into the economy and we all get better software... that's a win-win in my book.
but we all know no one can be bothered anymore... i used exactly one capital letter in this entire post, for example. so they'll cry about it, maybe sue someone and move on.
yes, mostly truth vs mostly lies.
surely you aren't implying that anything shouldn't be judged based on its actions because time has passed. are you?
is that the only reason they would have to not disclose this information is operational secrecy... if they were to say we used prism to pull jong-un's email ordering the hack... and here it is... no one is in danger and it exposes no new info.
i figure the "evidence" is a spy... maybe they are eager to leave and jumped on the opportunity? lies be damned...
