Nice April fools post... Secure credit card transactions... That's as likely as a honest politician
Pay close attention to the safety demonstration... It does the trick for me... I usually fall asleep during the seat belt part..
Windows is not free.. Its built into the price... Saying Windows comes free with your pc for free is like saying the CPU and memory are also come free with your PC..
I hate when people use the wrong terminology.. Its specific technical knowledge not skills.. Skills are things like reading, writing, typing or chewing gum while walking (which apparently the author cannot as he doesn't seem to understand what a skill is).. Things are getting more and more slack around here for the stories that get posted... Soon I suspect that we will start to see fox news stories poping up on here.
Hackers have been getting dates longer than there have been computers around...
Go look up hot rodders... They were probably the most sought after hackers for a date in their day.. even today they are still sought after by alot of women..
And the plane crashed... This is why they tell you to swtich off your phone..
But really.. They could have been using cell phone triangulation to find this without GPS for years.. I dunno why people don't think of this stuff.
Google should just buy em and rename the company G-Mobile and expose the real cost is to customers that's not gouging..
Your totally wrong... They will buy the new spectrum to keep out new competition... Possibly using it in the future... Look at the articles on Cramming (2 Billion a year for bogus fees) Its not a problem for the big carriers to buy spectrum in the billions and not use it just to keep competitors out of their back yard..There are only a few densely populated areas where licensed spectrum is utilized and its hard to find unused spectrum... Usually if you find unused spectrum and approach the owner they will not lease it to you and if they do the fees to do so are made to prevent you from making money... They will almost never sell it...
For new spectrum going forward they should only allow bidding on smaller regions and bidders would need to have a development plan that will put the spectrum into use within a time frame of say 1 year... if their deployment is derailed and a significant portion of their plan isn't in active use then they should lose ownership of that spectrum and it goes back on the block for auction...
That will force utilization of spectrum and spur competition..
Sorry to rain on your parade... But ping latency has little to do with voice quality(unless you are using a horrid codec that has super crappy buffers...).. most of the quality comes from jitter.. (Packet to packet delay) as long as you have a fairly steady stream of packets moving (IE your buffers don't run empty then get a wack load of packets then go empty for a while again) You quality should be fine... if there is a large amount of latency you will start to get an echo if poor/cheap handsets are used... but with a proper/robust echo cancellation this can be overcome... But once you start hitting 800+ ms of latency the talking delays do get annoying but the quality is still there.. Please stop using latency as a measurement of VOIP quality... what your really looking at is jitter... on FDD networks with high latency thats usually a sign of high congestion and you will get alot of packet clumping which is the real reason why quality starts to go to crap(The codec can't handle that amount of clumping hence the inconsistent quality of the VOIP call)...
Its soo rare that there is actually someone that you want to vote for on a ballot.. Most of the time your trying to figure out who will do less evil..
They should just change how voting is done... you might as well go in and vote against someone.. It would make figuring out who your gonna mark on the ballot alot easier..
That or add in a No Viable Candidate(Aka they all suck)..
But in the case of the game... you little sister comes and plays your game and finishes on you can you can't go back to replay it...
Nothing that a Linux install CD wont fix...
It would be easy to fix it...
If the application contains the Words "A System" send it back and tell them to elaborate in higher detail.
There are two major issues with patents.. They are far too broad and are used to stave off competition... and they allow patents of the baltently obvious.. (One Click Purchase)
Then to top it all off... there is nothing but sheer reward for waiting until infringement is mainstream and you can reap huge bucks from settlements..
It would be funnier if they Open-Sourced Oracle DB Kept Oracles Patent Portfolio and put all the different parts of Oracle up on EBay or Craislist.
You can try out the decoder by visiting the jsmad.org website where there is a sample song, on the same site you can browse for your own local file to play. Be warned, it only works in Firefox 4+ at the moment, but Chrome support is coming and already works in some cases. Eventually we could see it work across all modern browsers."
