I have never replaced a mouse due to hardware failure. I bought a new mouse when PS/2 finally adequately replaced serial mice, and another when USB did the same with PS/2.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
No plans. Let things happen as they may.
If we can film them in public places then they can do the same: liberty is a two way street. Let the information flow and justice prevail.
... I don't really see the point of owning large storage devices anymore. I watch my shows on Netflix and music comes in over Pandora.
Orders of magnitude: 25 is 10. 60 is 100.
They can still call you for surveys. I had a number of those recently after having purchased a vehicle and foolishly giving them my cell number. I did some research and started telling the humans who eventually came on the line that they had reached a business. This results in your number getting removed from their list (unlike actually asking to be removed from the list) since they don't want to screw their numbers by polling a Starbucks.
I have a machine dedicated to gaming for this. It runs Win7, has fancy whiz-bang hardware, and any time that I try to use it for anything other than that I end up rage-quitting the browser and going to get my Linux laptop.
Windows is great for games, I don't understand how people can stand using the interface for actual work.
Well, good news! Now you can get a Revue for cheap!
I guess Ellison changed his mind about cloud computing... here's him a year or two back ranting about how stupid the idea is.
Forget "other aspects of the user experience", Nintendo's selling point is games. I will buy a Wii U for no other reason than that the next Zelda game will run on it. $400 for Zelda is perfectly reasonable.
I have a bottle of whiskey and around 3000 miles between myself and the storm.
It is a test car. It collects more data while in operation than you could imagine. It'd be trivial to verify the logs against what they claim.
I can imagine quite a lot, but that's beside the point. It would be trivial for Google to verify the logs, sure, but I doubt very much that the Mountain View Police Department would have an easy time with it.
The car crashed while being driven by a person.
According to a Google spokesperson. If I were in that car, and it crashed while the software was driving, I would claim that I had been driving it too. Any public crash that could be blamed on the software would put the project in serious jeopardy.
Not terribly hard compared to what?
You know how I remove the battery on my Thinkpad? I slide the clasp into the unlocked position then slide the battery out. Same for the DVD drive (although I don't know who swaps theirs out, there doesn't appear to be an option to put a second battery there).
I can also use one screwdriver, a phillips, to replace the hard drive, memory, wireless card, keyboard, CPU, video card, etc.
