But it comes with "the latest Android 4.4 KitKat® operating system" even from the shop, so quite likely the OS will not be upgraded ever after. Why would anyone buy a $400 device, which is obsolete even at time of purchase and has a built in insecurity? What kind of uninstallable crapware does it have?
Lollipop by some reports is still somewhat broken, despite being in release.
I have same problem. What is a good luggable pc? I was looking at Brix or NUCs, but from the reviews it looks like they have the same problem as laptops. Unlike the OP, I am not worried abouth throttling; I just want it to stay on and not freeze.
Sterling has been selling them for years. I had an old Pentium version that just wouldn't die that I wound up giving away.
No. Both factions turn into 'socialists' whenever it benefits Big Business.
So in other words, yes.
"Yes, but only part of the story." You must be an elected official too.
That said, I do think that the vast majority of people are currently "OK" with the option they have, so perhaps there wouldn't be any real change anyway.
You know, none of that can possibly happen until people vote for politicians that will write the appropriate legislation, and then, if they did, then the problem is solved. See, that's the thing, none of you people think this shit through.
As for 'limiting' the feds, screw that. The corrupt locals are no better. You will just have a bunch of battling little fiefdoms, like in middle age Europe, leading right up to another world war. Travel would be impossible with the resulting border bureaucracies. Do you really want to relive in a pre-civil war USA? Well, maybe if you're a white male, with some property, I would suppose so. For me, there's no time like the present
Shens on "Local ones are no better". The scope of the havoc they can wreak is significantly smaller and more affordable than what can be done at the federal or even state level. They may still be power grubbing jerks, but at least the scope of it is reduced to the point that it doesn't affect the pockets of someone else that they aren't beholden to.
It was in operation for almost 30 years.
Operational longevity like that isn't peanuts either.
And upgraded several times through that 30 years, including some work less than 2 years before it was shut down.
I'm not saying that "The LHC should be shut down", but claiming that "The LHC won't get shut down because it was expensive" is, in my opinion, a misnomer.
I'll point back to your original statement: "Old does not always translate into worthless", but apparently my understanding of your statement is "at some point, it does".
...if they raised the speed limit to eighty-eight, scott could save *years*...
That's assuming he was driving something that vaguely looked like a DeLorean
Naa, just needs to have a stainless steel skin. Unfortunately, those are hard to come by.
