Ironically, fake.news would presumably carry impeccably vetted, accurate, and impartial news articles.

A cunning ploy . . .
. . . but I'm still not turning off my Pi Hole.
Shouldn't you be working?
Ugh, I went shopping last year on Newegg for new system components, and they were selling a 4TB Samsung flash drive for around $600. A 4TB hybrid drive was only a quarter the price, so I bought that instead; looking at the prices now, I wish I'd just coughed up for the flash drive!
Figures . . .
. . . that AO would twist this feature into something sinister on the part of Google. I mean, I'm divesting myself from Google services as quickly as I can, but I also can basically never answer my phone at this point because incoming calls are almost guaranteed to be spammers and scammers. The right thing to do is choke off the callers at the source in some fashion but, failing that, having some kind of logic at the endpoint seems like the best we can do, and if Google is making it easier, GOOD FOR THEM!
Definitely. Definitely time to watch Wapner.
Move over, Florida Man . . .
. . . here comes Markara Man.
Re: He commited a Felony
Not to me personally . . . YMMV.
"complicated, historic resons" (sic)
As in, the company won't compensate the IT staff for being on call.
Finally . . .
. . . an Andrew Orlowski article I can get behind!
Seriously, though, this looks like a great business-grade phone. I miss the hell out of my old BlackBerry for responding to work emails and other messages. I would think that TCL could make a mint by marketing these in bulk to large corporations.
Re: Of course
How are things over at Simplivity these days? Hurting a bit since the HPE acquisition, I'm guessing?
Amazon, eBay and pals agree to Europe's other GDPR: Generally Dangerous Products Removed from websites
Re: Define Dangerous Please
It's based on a complex algorithm related to how often the product appears in Google searches alongside "Hold my beer and watch this."
Sounds like a bunch of people would like to strike Twitter with great force. What do you call that? The word's on the tip of my tongue . . .
"We've become a society of cowardly complainers."
Posted without apparent irony, I see.
Re: Monopolies and Oligopolies
The problem is that the wealthy gentry of Palo Alto and nearby communities don't want new housing built. They don't want the hard problem of becoming an actual city, so you just get endless suburban sprawl with no reasonable density. While the problem may nominally be caused by tech companies, the fault lies squarely with the local governments.
I disagree that this is a characteristic of a monopolist; it's simply the characteristic of any dominant company. I spent years dealing with a certain large storage vendor, and every meeting with them was an opportunity for them to slag the competition. Their products slowly became more and more obsolete, and customer happiness was bought with false promises rather than excellent product.
Knowing HPE ...
... the process of getting a quote for this service alone will be more difficult than just paying someone to build you a cloud from scratch.
Re: He is all over the Internet now
So what you're saying is that Milorad "Michael" Trkulja may or may not be or have been a hitman, associated with the criminal underworld in Australia and possibly a vexatious litigant as well!?
Re: As an Ex-Comcast Customer ...
Well, this is their business grade service, after all.
At my workplace, we use rectal scans. On the plus side, they've really cut down on smoke breaks.
What's that sound?
Ah yes, two garbage scows colliding.
Re: Technological objections
"I don't think any of the above have been addressed."
Well, I guess Virgin engineers should kill the project since you don't think they have addressed those objections (and presumably, more to the point, you think they are deeply stupid and never will). Like I said, always a good reason to stop a project in its infancy, that naysayers can't envision finding solutions to problems.
"Naturally, there are more than a few technological objections to these plans . . ."
Well, that's a good reason not to do anything, then.
"Airplanes are too dangerous -- what happens if they lose power?"
"Rockets are too dangerous -- what if they explode?"
"Microprocessors are impossible; how do you manage voltage at that level of miniaturization?"
"Better not leave the house, might get eaten by bears."
Etc. There's always a reason not to do something, and if we took all objections seriously, nothing interesting would ever happen.
Sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get bargain shares!
What's the revenue angle?
Top of mind for any business will be to ask how adopting IPv6 will drive revenue or reduce cost. So far, there's no universal answer to either question.
Re: But mah gunzzzz!
Really, Big John, you're going to pick George Zimmerman's murder of an unarmed man as the example you want to use? I swear you actually must be a walking false flag operation.
But mah gunzzzz!
I'm assuming the NRA will now step in to defend his right to export weapons parts out of the country, out of their deep commitment to a well-regulated militia.
Based on the contents of this comment thread alone, it seems pretty evident that the requirements, implications, and implementation of GDPR are all quite clear and well-understood, so I expect there to be no issues whatsoever when it goes into effect.
"...definitely does NOT repel the opposite sex."
But then you start talking ...
Real life experiences
Say it with me now: "The plural of anecdote is not 'data.'"
You know Trump would never be able to wield Excalibur with those tiny hands of his . . .
No flying cars
Instead you get your promised grim cyberpunk dystopia ruled by unaccountable multinational corporations. Enjoy.
Nobody does identity politics like white males.
"Why am in not getting preferential treatment because of my sex and skin color?"
You are, and you don't even realize it. That's pretty much the point of promoting diversity.
He's already appeared in front of Congress; why bother to appear in front of some piddling state government?
To the downvoter: you're quite right. Most likely, they'll buy EMC, just because they can. Not that Pure would have any use for that lumbering dinosaur, mind you ...
Re: "our study highlights the potential for smartphone-based diagnostics"
Yes, by all means, let us deny clinicians more effective tools because you don't like them.
Blame Jim Morrison

Super Cali goes ballistic, Starbucks is on notice: Expensive milky coffee is something quite cancerous
Re: Another "Super Cali" headline?
It annoys you, so I'm all for it.
Good luck with that
No, seriously. Unfortunately, I suspect the business leaders of New York will explain how they could just as easily pack up and move their businesses to New Jersey, and that will put an end to this plan.
Re: It's almost impossible to restrain my apathy...
Yet you cared enough to a) read the article and b) comment. How hard would it have been to read the headline, say, "Nope, don't care," and move on?
Re: Boomers and Entitlements
Who's up for a cross between Old Man's War and Battle Royale?
So paint a mustache on the nose of each aircraft. Problem solved!
So, like Violin Memory, then? Let's just see how they're doing ... oh.
So well that Dell EMC killed it!
