priests are not journalists
and journalists are not priests
some people here are trying to be funny and fail miserably
there is at least one other alternative to Android and iOS, why not trying it ?
why the thumbs down? I dont undertand
there is a base of people who dont want to have anything to do with apple or google (or MS but that's not a option anymore anyway) and for these people it will be alright to pay that price,
I know I will at least
if you want a 4th alternative, Jolla is releasing his Sailfixh X OS the 11 october: https://jolla.com/sailfishx/
Pokemon Go is my guess
buy 4TB disk, because thats where the best TB/price ratio is at the moment.
the whole hdd vs flsh is just a matter of return on investment
the companies who build the hdd manufacturing plants are squeezing then out for maximum profit, and until the profit they can get out of the old manufacturing still outperform what they could get from new (costly) flash manufacturing plants, the will still continue to produce hdd (at cheap prince)
the moment the beancounters calculate it has become less profitable to make hdd, then yes they will finally die (as in price will go up),
what I wonder is if at that same moment flash price will go down, I mean down to the same pricing as hdd for equivalent storage space.
im pretty sure we are entering a turbulence period and I dont think will exactly be in world+dog customers interest
they have been doing that in Switzerland airport security check for years,
im more annoyed by having to remove my belt or shoes because their security portal ring for freaking no reasons ....
and im not even talking about drink bottles !@%!&
it is still my main browser, mind you,
but I use it:
- with auto-update disabled, to prevent it from breaking yet another extension without warning,
- with Classic Theme Restorer, because if I wanted to use something that looked like Chrome, I would be using Chrome, seriously ....
that said, im not going to change, because the few time I use Chrome it make me want to murder the Google marketing retards who take the decision of commanding dev to produce such a simplified crapple like product.
please folk, dont forget these kind of drives will probably never go to common consumer market:
companies rely on sales to make a living, so they need to either sell a lot of (relatively) small capacity devices at a (relatively) low price, or sell a few gigantic capacity devices at a gigantic price to keep making enough profit.
meaning we will *never* see such capacity drives on consumer market, simply because:
a) most consumers *dont* need such kind of storage space and,
b) most consumers would never pay a pay the gigantic price of professional hardware and,
c) even if consumers would in total irrationality buy one of these device at a gigantic price, they would only buy one for their whole life (or at least very very few) because thats plenty enough to store all your instagram pictures for a lifetime.
so entering the consumer market with such capacity drives is simply economically *not* interesting for storage companies,
they will stay in professional market, with corresponding pricing
well, Reality Leigh Winner has been arrested under treason charge for leaking some of these "Pure Hollywood productions" documents as you call them ....
where is my global blanket licenses through taxes, so we can finally end all this piracy non-sens and allow people to listen and watch what they want when, where and how they want ...
well, after ad blocking, cookie blocking and script blocking addon, we will simply have drm blocking addon
... are just giving up any effort at supervising their kids and simply want to rely on "technology safeguard" to do the job for them.
I doubt it will have any real benefit at protecting kids and will just yet again reduce everyone privacy
Sailfish is not free enough ?
so Google is doing a SailfishOS
on a few forum (where that option is available), I have decided to pay a small one time fee to get ride of the "you are using adblock" notices and participate financially to content I access often, as that seems fair.
but I rarely see this option, often is is simply "enable ads or we disable our content!" which turn me off everytime.
there is simply no content I would want to see so absolutely I would be ready to re-enable advertising display....
I live in Switzerland,
the situation is far from being nice and lovely: the relation with EU are complicated, any political agreement is a nightmare and there is little way of latitude for internal policies not going the same way as the EU.
Please dont ever think not being in the EU is an easy path and will solve all problem, that's a complete utopia.
pretty much all old tunnels have been fitted with explosive,
and they are slowly and costly getting removed,
at this time this process is not finished.
ex-Nokia engineers are doing well with SailFishOS and Jolla,
but the world want shinny Apple products, and those who dont want shinny Samsung products,
not alternative competitors. Just see how Blackberry has now switched to Android too ....
I fear I still fail to understand the idea of "securely publicly published" urls.
if the url is publicly published, as in anyone can see it, the fact the url is shortened or not is completely meaningless.
so, shouldnt the problem be that these urls have been publicly published in the first place?
or is it the idea that the url contains some authenticating token that may be extracted by brutforcing the shortened urls to be then able to access other content stored a the same place ? but then you are stupid if your token give read AND write and not read only .........
"How long before space debris becomes such a problem that we need a solution to clean up?"
you mean that: http://actu.epfl.ch/news/a-giant-pac-man-to-gobble-up-space-debris/
I guess you meant buttons as in hardware keyboard, which may be interesting indeed.
otherwise I dont really see the possible usage if you are just talking about some "home" button and the like, Im curious to know whats your use-cases ?
you forgot Sailfish OS
I just wonder, as you say you have tested all phones out there,
did you test a Jolla? and if yes what did you think about it?
and yet once again there is not a single word about the attack vector and any info about how that ransomeware got installed on the related server...
people search using google
people use google DNS
people are tracked by adv. cookies and most of these are handled by google
that cover already most of anyone internet usage
isnt Linux Mint closer to Win7 than Win10 will ever be ?
"It is imperative that W10 – Microsoft’s last chance to remain a company with its own OS rather than just a multi-platform service provider – succeeds.."
how? by forcing the OS to its user base? is that a sign of success?
since most people either don't bother or are not tech-savvy enough to know better, it may work.
but if M$ continue to ignore their users, more and more people are going to look elsewhere, as many comments of TheReg articles have shown ...
I don't envision any improvement in M$ business result, if they stubbornly continue in their current track. Though with their size, it will probably take some time before ill effects start being really noticeable.
if you dont want to be annoyed by closed source product, buy an open source one instead, and, oh surprise, there is one: Jolla with SailfishOS.
maybe also FirefoxOS, though I havent heard much about it lately
to prevent any kind of food problem, I suggest we simply stop eating altogether,
and to prevent any possible other problem, I suggest we also stop breathing,
there, problem solved, you wont die from any cancer
What I would really be interested in is if the life span of the animals in the dead zone is the same as elsewhere.
Im really not surprised to know that life is thriving in these dead zone, but maybe mostly simply because human are not there anymore?
So I would like to know if that aspect has been evaluated, i.e., did they study the age repartition of the various species and what the result was.
Then and only then, if the life span of the animals is the same as elsewhere, then yes I will believe that radiation danger may be exaggerated...
With other mobile OS's coming up, and the way we consume compute power, then Linux could lose momentum and be overtaken by something that is born in the mobile sphere and then makes the jump to desktop.
Sailfish OS is linux-based, so presently it's still the other way around.
1) pay some online service officially distributing the stuff you want to watch
2) get the stuff you want to watch off torrents, saving you all the hassle with overcomplicated setup, crashing system, disappearing content, etc..
win-win: producer get paid and you get to watch what you want without any problems
I dont forsee the disappearance of pirated content any time soon
that "lightbulb " feature, just because of the ribbon mess where you can't easily find anything easily anymore ....
replacing mistreated human women by robots is a bad thing? how?
there are certainly much more urgent matter to take care of than the possibility of robot being used for that in a long long time in the future ...
I wonder how accurate the "wood shavings" part is, and if it wasnt simply small pieces of barrel instead.
Imo it's certainly easier to make a small recipient from whole pieces of wood than from compacted wood shavings...
future cars will certainly rely on several technologies and not *only* lidars, so I dont think we have to fear any technology limitations.
beside, if you take current ABS and ESP, there is already sensors reading allowing to "know" (calculate) when the car is on the right trajectory or not and afaik nobody is having second thought about these systems.
when future systems will be implemented in production series, I guess they will have at least as much testing as already implemented systems.
"Most of us are using CDNs every day, and probably don’t even realise it."
I see them all all the time because with NoScript you have to allow them one by one before correctly getting some js and see the page content.
CubicExplorer (use the svn/dev installer)
best explorer since M$ started butchering its own
it's free (but open for donation of course)
that was in the 1980s
music majors still exist today, dont they?
the sentence "having decided that the last thing he needed was a doctor" really tripped me off.
knowing how serious back problem can be, any sane person would go the nearest hospital to get a check. I would certainly not jeopardize my health for the rest of my life just to have a sever up and running a bit sooner :/
It's out of range, Capt'n
US citizen are prompt to reproach lots of things to their federal government, but strangely when a federal government agency is doing something wrong, they ignore that and go all nuclear on the whistleblower,
I dont understand that.
just to nitpick a bit, you don't absolutely need a hard button to return home,
but you need something handled by the underlying OS and not by the overlying apps.
for example on a Jolla phone (SailfishOS), a swip from left will always return you to the main interface, whatever the app you were using.
is a problem that doesn't exist.
especially when it would cost a lot of money doing anything to solve it.
