Dumbest question of the day.
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).
Dumbest question of the day.
This is not about hotel guests. It’s about cnoferences, where internet access can run you $1,000 a day.
More robust competition at the local level will raise speeds and lower prices. And one day, one bright, glorious day, I can tell Comcast to take a hike.
Me too (Cox in my case). And that’s why the plan will be lobbied out of existence.
Just get a 3D printer and make your own chips. Jeez, cheapskates.

It’s already here. You just haven’t realised it yet.
Pro tip: "afternoon" means before sunset, by definition. If the sun sets at 15:30, then 14:30 is "late afternoon."
By definition I thought it meant, well, ‘after noon’...
Driverless trains have existed in London for many years, too. For example on the DLR: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D...
There is still a "Driver", but all they do is operate the doors, make passenger announcements, and are ready to take over in the case of an emergency or a system failure.
Doesn’t he have to feed the monkey as well?
That would be Cold Fusion.t
Someone should combine the best of both technologies and invent coal fusion.
I don’t think they can get out of paying for earned vacation in all cases. Certainly not in CA.
I guess I don't get the mathematics of poverty. If I'm going somewhere with a friend, I was already going there anyway and wouldn't charge them gas money. I'd only charge if I was taking them somewhere I had no intention of going and I wanted to be a dick about it.
This is not what it’s about in general. It’s about providing a ride. Not picking up someone on the way you were happening to be traveling.
The friend paid $5 for a $3 share of the cost. That's where the "profit" comes from. And I wouldn't be surprised if the original poster agrees with your assertion that this isn't a profit.
I am dumbfounded you cannot see the error here.
Both scales have their advantages and disadvantages. Thing is, most of the world has standardised on Celsius and is easy to convert to scientific units (kelvin).
0C means ice, 100C means boiling. Two common and dangerous points. Most everyday activity falls within that range, and it's easy to tell what something that is 80C is going to be like because it is 80% of boiling water temperature. There really is no reason to stick with Fahrenheit other than tradition.
Weather dude. It’s easier to relate on a scale from 0-100+F which you have been used to for the last 50 years, what the real temperature out there is, rather than 0-30. Well, at least it is for me, as an old fart with a physics drgree, YMMV.
10 xor 5 = 15
1010 xor 0101 = 1111
How come we can’t mark the OP article Troll?
Writing proper sentances is also hard.
So is spelling, apparently.
