...includes the (buzz)word "innovate", and Apple's doesn't, so I'm siding with Apple on this one.
...this NASA "space sheriff" or whatever he is, just called Neil Armstrong a liar?
Seriously, that's the provenance he offers to prove that it really is a moon rock?
"Passes" is somewhat ambiguous.
Anybody who reaches 83 passes 82.
...you're getting an entire extra second.
Mine's the one with the wrist sundial in the pocket.
...in the first place...
But anyway, if the computer is already running and logged onto the LAN (via a fixed IP address), why would the sudden presence of this device on the USB bus cause it to get all promiscuous and have to have a DHCP address assigned from it?
There doesn't seem to be an icon suitable for my level of lack of knowledge and confusion on this topic.
...is the same as my Ripple port, my Boone's Farm port...
Even I knew enough about Hollywood bookkeeping back then that there's no such thing as net profits in the movie business.
So why didn't their management and lawyers?
Star Wars isn't even the kind of Space Opera that Star Trek is.
it's Swords and Sorcery in space.
...but I assume they paid the rebates to those customers who did complete whatever the rebate claiming process was, and it could be they were unaware of that particular state law, or didn't think it applied.
After all, unclaimed property usually belongs to whoever failed to claim it, but in this case they might not have seen it as the customers' property, legally speaking, until and unless the customer did fulfill the requirements of claiming it.
"... but Voyage Home was the funniest by a long way."
" Everybody remember where we parked!"
If you're tired of having to pay extra to "de-crypt" the channels for which you are paying so that you can watch them on your television, the cable industry's solution is you can also pay for fast enough internet service to let you watch them on a smaller screen on some other device.
Did you show similar concern for the US when Farnell bought MCM Audio?
If we'd known in advance that this fellow was so un-American as to only use his work phone for work stuff, we'd have been forewarned.
"There is no market. They have no money."
Years ago, that's what I was thinking when people were going on and on about China being a vast uptapped market.
What I didn't realize was that that little problem was going to be solved by sending our jobs over there.
Chip Quik has a bismuth alloy solder with a low melting point that you use, in conjunction with the supplied flux, to melt the solder holding down SMD chips so you can wick it up without scorching the board or lifting traces.
Comes in handy when an older (up through the first of the Series 3 models) TiVo needs a replacement motherboard but needs to keep the original TiVo Service Number which is contained on the Atmel crypto chip.
But staying home and not voting has a lot to do with who becomes President.
...they told us which model number to worry about, unlike the 600,000 cable modems story
Arris is the name getting slapped on Motorola cable modems (and probably some other stuff, like set top boxes and such as well) these days.
Which doesn't really help unless someone specifies *which* models are at risk.
Sherlock, because I guess we have to do our own detective work to find out if we're in any danger or not.
I'm sure the bad guys already know, so maybe warn the rest of us?
...fossil fuels, and especially oil, in particular.
I've long felt that the relatively low price up until near the end of '73 and the removal of that advantage afterwards played a pretty big part in post WWII economics.
...I'm pretty sure, unless and until he gets convicted of something after a trial.
The Silkwood shoutout was a nice touch.
Possibly not, if the Virgin boxes are as internet dependent as it seems the most recent stateside models, the Roamios, are.
WD Blacks are easy to find.
If you have thermal imaging equipment.
The only brands of drives at least one of which I haven't had go bad on me are the ones I never owned.
It isn't about reducing (or not) competition, it's about reducing overhead for the merged entity that used to be separate companies WD and HGST.
If the cost of being in business is lower, they can better compete with Seagate on price.
(whether *anyone*--WD, Seagate, Toshiba, Fujitsu, Samsung, HGST--anyone, in all of this will actually be producing better drives is a separate issue)
...to get 'po' WiFi.
I think that's the first 54G, and maybe the first Linksys, to be mentioned as being at risk for this, and I wonder why the GL and none of the previous versions of the 54G would be the only one.
I think the point is someone gets to make a £30 sale.
Yeah, but how much for the retail boxes?
Bite your tongue!
The Facebook comment handling software is horrible.
...they had advertised it as pay 14 days after receipt of purchase. Instead they went ahead and hit the account linked to my PayPal account the same day the merchandise arrived.
But they didn't add on any fees or interest.
I decided not to spend several days trying to get through to an actual human being at PayPal by phone to discuss the matter.
If you consider the roads themselves as publicly provided goods, then 10 people in 10 cars or 20 people in 20 cars is actually greater usage than 10 or 20 people on one bus, at least as far as road crowding is concerned and possibly road wear and tear as well.
...software that has something to do with LG video monitors, or software that monitors something?
And why would either need to disable UAC?
The cathode follower is a particular vacuum tube amplifier (or more accurately, amplification stage) configuration, but by no means the only possible vacuum tube configuration capable of amplification.
Blumlein, genius though he was, was born too late to have "invented electronics", something with which no one person can be solely credited anyway.
But as long as we're talking about genius electronics pioneers who aren't as well known about as they should be, allow me to mention the guy who got patent trolled by RCA and AT&T
and to recommend a biography of him
Man of High Fidelity: Edwin Howard Armstrong
by Lawrence Lessing
The high fidelity part refers both to his stubborn adherence to his principles and to his having been responsible for wide band FM radio.
Then the OP should have said "we need less of the 'culture of targets'...".
Targets are discrete, countable units. You have more of them or you have fewer of them or the number of them is unchanged.
Everything has to look like smartphones and tablets now.
Because reasons, I guess.
Since the 16th episode of the seventh season of The Simpsons, entitled "Lisa the Iconoclast".
It's the same episode that gives us "cromulent".
...but apparently it was decided sometime back that its broadcast services were a public good that benefit society as a whole, so why not just cover the cost of all that out of general revenues and scrap the idea, and the immense hassle and expense, of trying to keep track of which household has what kind of radio and video gear?
Was this in the early 2000s? The time when "capacitor plague" was making itself known?
...that top level domains at all were a bad idea.
Google had an ad that covered right hand side of 2nd and 3rd paragraphs--scrolling didn't help.
Clicked the X to close it, it offered the choice of reporting that the ad covered the page, and when I did that I got this

covering the exact same area.
Aren't they smart enough to find white space?
Although at least it has an ending, unlike Stephen King's "The Colorado Kid".
I want it in as much of NC as possible so that the rest of NC notices and starts asking "Why can't we have that?"
But if you're poor, your choice of where to live is much more limited, and not being a criminal and not associating with them won't protect you from having them live nearby, putting you at risk when they're shooting at each other, when they and the cops are shooting at each other, and when the cops do a no-knock raid in the wee small hours of the morning, only they got the address wrong by a number or two, and your child just had a smoke grenade explode in their face.
...except I'd feel like I was really getting jerked around since 7 is selling for more than 8.1 (especially if you're trying to avoid having to go with the OEM version)
I wonder what the explanation for that little mystery could be.
...who was nicknamed Littlefinger?
There's something about the substitution of presents for no apparent reason other than to create unrest and chaos that seems so familiar.
Mine's the one with the pocket set aside and dedicated to carrying the paperback edition of Winds of Winter with me everywhere in the unlikely event I live that long.
Guess it depends on exactly how you define visionary, but this is interesting reading:
especially the "did it in his spare time from his regular job at HP" part.
"He says every East facing shore will face a huge storm surge, but the preceding sentence mentions the waves traveling East to West."
Imagine a wave leaving England and headed for North America. It will be travelling from East to West, and when it gets here, it will hit the Atlantic coast, which "faces" East, if you define coasts as facing the water they abut.
