"Sorry, I can't do that , Dave"
Now that you mentioned EM Drive ...
.. on the photo
Window manager looks like Mate to my (admittedly untrained) eye ....
They could do it and _promise_ 5 years of updates.
But even if they will promise it , don't believe . Not going to happen in reality.
"cross-platform" as in "Windows & Linux " ?
btw. I wonder if AMD is better than Intel in that regard ?
Perhaps , this could be the edge for AMD over Intel ?
this kind of porn
What now ? Forks and distros ?
Go, Oppy ! :-)
I wonder who promoted this encryption standards ?
The agency with three letter acronym , starting with letter N ?
Isn't it Elerium ?
Well, 99% of people are in Ron's position , me included .
Like it or not , no one gives a d.a.m.n about our small dirty secrets, so small they are...
The rest of us can shell out 5 USD per month , for paid-for mail account..
( Sigh )
For the record, if I were to buy a spinning harddrive today , that would certainly be a WD.
Say whatever you want, but compared to Seagate , WD drives are .. what's the best word ... decent.
Seagate is abysmal.
Who else is left ? Toshiba, I guess.
I don't know anything about Toshiba drives, since they are rare and pricier here .
I must say I am happy with WD support too.
They were helpful replacing my dead My Book Live unit for free and allowed me to restore the data myself without voiding warranty.
For me it was rare example of pro-consumer and friendly treatment.
Just for a little more balanced view ;-)
So did they do one of the following things few months earlier :
1. Outsource some team's work to save 50K $ per year ?
2. Purge some staff based on their anti-gay-marriage donations and/or private comments ?
If so, then I am not surprised.
so , by extension, many of us here should exercise our rights and stop using firefox ?
that's pure madness ..
It all smells Soviet times.
Stepped down voluntarily .. yeah, right
Just like in a joke about Mayakovski's famous last words before his suicide.
"Please don't shoot Camrades"
Sad, really ..
It will be a great solution until boffins from MIT get a huge grant from NSA ...
(hint: RSA )
We all should face a fact that Android is the new Windows.
It's not the OS's fault (mostly). It's the openness and ubiquity.
All OS-es are exploitable and the ones with >70% market share are a desired target.
Android security is mostly smoke and mirrors.
Most Android phones and tablets are vulnerable from day 1 , because they come with older Android versions for which exploits exist.
It is a fact of life and one should simply acknowledge it and plan accordingly.
Do you _really_ need all those games and bells and whistles ?
Maybe paying 1$ for official version of some app is not that stupid when cracked versions exist ?
Hint: crackers also have to earn money to make ends meet.
Example: I bought a new Samsung Galaxy Chat recently. It comes with Android 4.1 .
Is this a safe Android version ? Don't think so.
Sadly no official upgrade exists and I will not install anything unofficial , so I am stuck.
UPDATE Complaints SET Status='Resolved'
Phew, they are quick ..
This can only mean one thing - more Ads on Youtube to cover the cost :-/
seven times eight is 56.
That was easy.
RUMPY-PUMPY .. with you I learn new bits of English every day !
He would fit nicely with today's Microsoft corporate culture ...
I am on Outlook 2003 and Outlook bug does not affect me .
Good read. Thanks !
Sorry for that name mistake.
With rest we'd have to agree to disagree ;-)
Richard, I would agree with you if he hacked Debian or Centos , a true non profit idealist org. And Canonical ? They are in it for money, purely. Rarely they contribute something back to Linux community.
Suppose I saw a sleeping guard and I put a flower in a barrel of his gun. Would this be a criminal act -? Perhaps. But he provides some service to the public and does it for money, so should better get his acts together..
Firstly Ubuntu is a commercial company that lives off selling their product and support , so they're not exactly volunteers.
Secondly some organizations choose Ubuntu over Windows for security sake.
( Like , say , Tibetan activists )
Perhaps such actions can open some eyes and provoke some thought ,
because _real_ adversaries will not advertise their breach all over the Internet ...
Oh, they DID sell out to MS ... their search engine is powered by Bing ...
Just like first combustion planes had laughable performance, but looking at them ,someone with vision could imagine their amazing future ...
Today solar-powered craft can take only 2 passengers and fly at laghauble speed, but imagine thats just first iteration in a row of succesive designs, with a commercial one available in next few years, when solar cells will be much more efficient.
+1 for ExistenZ , brilliant movie ..
This keyboard layout is ideal ( at least for me) , Home, PgUp,PgDn,End - to the right - and no numeric block.
www.michelinmichelinguides.com, that is .
No, it's (T)Itanic ...
Are you sure Chinese users have access to that , or at least have access by default ? Think twice....
But Chinese operators put _theirs_ appstores as default , instead of Google Play.
And the problem is that those appstores are riddled with malware , and average user is not even conscious of that.
So someone can start OpenRocket.org project then ...
Mowi sie trudno, poczekamy ... :-)
Yes , please open your LAN's. No need to be afraid of anything.

My thought exactly ... 1500 humans would never be able to rate whole Internet or even its representative parts ...
We have plenty of our own
... or was it Ben ?
I recall a HP printer that needed a firmware upgrade straight out of the box , because , well , it didn't print.
I guess you should've made your calculation in Excel :)))))
Since when is unity free for mobile platforms , hmm ?
( true, they have free Windows desktop version )
There will be mail application bundled ( a "Metro" one ) , just not MS Outlook ...
The stupid thing is that this bundled app will not support POP3 / SMTP and is generally a weak one . But I am sure there will be free alternatives in the market.
This knowledge makes you a pro when it comes to partying ...
Microsoft .. ?
Back in the day we had such a joke in Poland , that one day chinese soldiers unprovoked attacked Soviet civilian harverster , and after a while the harvester responded with a rocket fire and then flew away in a direction of Moscow ...
As if it hadn't tough life already ...
