This is kind of what happened with webmail when Gmail came out. I remember at the time, in 2004, Hotmail was 2MB of storage and Yahoo was 3MB of storage. As soon as Gmail came out with its 1GB of storage, you saw the others suddenly start offering a lot more storage.
Even our most advanced space robots aren't immune to taking selfies.
Unless, of course, we one day create a computer so powerful it can figure out how to reverse entropy.
Of course they realize it. They realized it years ago, when they got rid of unlimited data.
Android Wear supports both round and rectangular screens. The reason for this is fashion, and fashion will always beat out pure function.
We could carve them up like mabell, but that would just slow them down for 20 or so years while all the baby Comcasts recombine.
Just like the T1000 from Terminator 2.
Netflix should use their film-producing resources to make a pro-Net Neutrality documentary, and display it the main banner of their homepage (like they do with their original content).
This mentality will destroy the country. Stop turning things into Republicans vs Democrats. Truth is they both serve the same corporate masters.
Under Obama, for example, a former Monsanto Exec became the head of the FDA. A former telecom lobbyist became the chairman of the FCC. I mean, what the fuck, right?
Basically, whether you vote Republican or Democrat, this kind of thing will go on. The two party system is just useful for distracting people, and getting them to vote in such a way where nothing will actually change.
Should be "OK"
I ran a 2GB netbook with Windows 7, and it was okay. Certainly felt the lack of memory, but it was usable. Windows 8 is supposed to have a smaller footprint than Windows 7, so maybe it'll fair a bit better.
Except that you can forget about using any and all dark colors. Windows 8 doesn't change the window text to a light color (or, as Windows 7 does, have a white frost effect behind the text). The end result is that if you use a dark window color, you won't be able to comfortably read the window title.
I still can't understand how they let this happen, or how they haven't fixed it yet.
Most people with "unlimited" data will probably use anywhere between 3-10GB.
But there are people, on the same unlimited plan, that will use 100 or 200 or more GB a month. Now, since they bought "unlimited" data, this is fine. They're getting what they paid for. Some might argue that they are abusing the service, but that doesn't matter: they bought unlimited data, so they're using it.
The result is that people who might use less than 10GB of data a month by streaming lots of music and youtube video, are put into the same service tier as people who might basically run torrents on their phone, or even use it as their home broadband, racking up hundreds of GBs of data a month.
I think part of the problem is that right now the data tiers are silly. Plans basically offer triers that look like this:
There's this huge spike.
People who will stream slightly mare than average, and people who intend to use their data for massive broadband demands will have no choice but to go with the unlimited plan. How about some more reasonable tiers? Something like
I lost track of what my point was supposed to be so I'm going to stop typing now.
Ebola mutating to be airborne is a terrifying concept. Basically it'll be a real life Captain Trips.
They should rename come 67P to Rosetta Stone.
I would say that they build speed for two reasons.
One is marketing. It looks better in marketing to advertise SPEED in big letters, and use words like FASTEST and MOST POWERFUL.
The other is overages. If they give you tons of speed but a tiny limit, you run over your amount fast, then they get co charge you 10 dollars per GB.
