He never moves the character around, all he does is show the interface and type some text. You aren't playing the game if you cannot move your character.
Did you even read past the point were you cut off the quote?
I don't believe that the US will ever get mobile internet everywhere, because the US has such a large amount of land not even close to an urban area.
Western Europe does not have that "problem" because we are a lot more densely populated.
Doesn't make our network better, I'm just pointing out a major difference in the infrastructure of them.
Ask any European if they're not somewhat envious of the advancements of smartphone technology in the US. So it just seems to me this is just not even close.
We are not even a little envious. In fact, the use of smartphones in the US is considered somewhat of a joke. The iPhone, although pretty and easy to use, was a couple of steps backwards functionality wise.
And were does he think all the latest smartphones (WinMobile, Android, Symbians) are coming from? HTC isn't US, neither is Nokia. And Google Nexus was produced by HTC.
We have high speed mobile internet everywhere, something the US will never have, considering the fact that the US is so much larger and less densely populated.
If you look at Europe, they publish penetration rates of 150 (percent), 160 (percent), 170 percent meaning that people have more than one phone, two phones, three phones.
You know why? Roaming rates are so high. My guess is you probably have two or three different phones to carry to—to use in different countries because your roaming rates are so high. And you say, yes.
No, it's because everyone have at least one phone, just as the numbers indicate. Some people (myself included) have more than one phone because we use them for different purposes (work/personal for me, some kids have one phone on prepaid and another on a regular subscription).
I've never heard of anyone buying a second phone to use in another country.
But those are the people we will throttle and we will find them and we will charge them something else.
Why would you need to stock up and get to high ground, for an object this small?
It will most likely be destroyed in the atmosphere upon entry, should it "hit" the Earth.
Indeed, the United States is building the world's largest virtual network lab across 14 college campuses and two nationwide backbone networks
Isn't that how the Internet, we have now, started? So what has changed, except for reinventing the whole thing?
I've had successful relationships with longer distances between points.
Not very successful if you have to refer to them in multiples and in the past tense..
I never understood how it came to that conclusion. A huge thermonuclear war would 'kill all humans'. Isn't that the ultimate goal of any artificial intelligence?
still pretty much the same, with some differences of course.
What? Is that your argument?
That they are similar but different?
How is that different than any other legal system in the world? They are all similar but different, that's the whole basis of law.
..at least not in Scandinavia..
What do you mean by that? You are aware that "Scandinavia" is actually three different countries with three different sets of laws, right?
Here in Denmark we do not have the same laws as the Swedes do. And since Norway isn't even a member of the EU, some parts of Danish and Swedish law is very different than Norwegian law.
Is this a failed attempt at trolling?
It's a PLUGIN, not an ADD-ON. There is no way to uninstall ANY Plugins in Firefox. You can disable Add-Ons, you can uninstall Add-Ons and you can disable Plugins. But you cannot uninstall Plugins from within Firefox. Firefox simply loads all files in a specific Internet Plugins folder (not a Firefox-only plugin folder) and if it detects a plugin, it uses it.
Delete the file and you're good to go.
Someone should mod parent up.
You cannot uninstall plug-ins, no matter who releases them or how they were installed, from inside the Firefox add-on panel.
I can uninstall my
I don't know about the WPF one, I don't have that installed at work.
Mozilla is taking Microsoft's word that these plugins, which install in their software without notice, don't have any vulnerabilities and are working just fine.
Just like every other plugin on the market. Apparently the
I know we like to bash Microsoft here, but the plug-in safety process (in FF) seems to work fine.
How do you know that there aren't unknown vulnerabilities in another plug-in somewhere?
Microsoft's plugins should be required to behave as every other responsible plugin. It shouldn't install with stealth, there should be a way to easily disable, and there should be a way to easily uninstall.
You disable it by going to Tools > Add-ons >
I works fine for me, I just uninstalled the plugin.
And Microsoft aren't the only ones who install by stealth. I don't remember installing Nokias 'PC Sync2 synchronisation' extension. It just installed itself with some other software.
Now I'll admit that there are only a few posts above mine, but already they are generally negative. Which I don't get.
Isn't this a good thing?
Microsoft releases a couple of Firefox plug-ins.
A security vulnerability was discovered in the plug-ins.
Mozilla disables the plug-ins.
Microsoft and Mozilla has a talk about the the vulnerability and it appears that one of the plug-ins aren't vulnerable.
The plug-in is re-enabled.
As far as I can tell, this is the system working properly.
