Thanks for this link. Why isn't this a default setting?
You rule. Thanks!
I loathe 10.10 Netbook Edition and Unity. I've lost my thumb drive with 10.4 on it, or I'd re-re-image my EEE 901. I even went back to Xandros for a while, but since it doesn't do anything, went on to 10.10 big boy edition. I miss 10.4. a lot.
What are the chances I'm getting the whole story here? Zero? Oh, carry on, then.
We've also gotten notice that we have to show up at our nearest SIM retailer with proof that we are who we say we are and still have the SIM chip we bought. Oh, and bring a passport photo, please. This isn't the first time the Indian gov't has gone after RIM. Last year's attempt to strong-arm Blackberry was met with a giant shrug by RIM and near-mutiny by the financial sector, who depend mightily on the crackberry.
It turns out recording your drugged child pays pretty well. 7-year-old David DeVore became an overnight sensation when his father posted a video of his ramblings after dental surgery. To date that video has made the DeVore family around $150,000. Most of the money came from YouTube, but the family has made $50k from licensing and merchandise. From the article: "The one seemingly minor decision to make the video available all over the Internet set off a whirlwind of changes for the DeVore family. Within just four days, 'David After Dentist' received 3 million views on YouTube and the younger David quickly became an Internet celebrity. His father quit his job in residential real estate (did we mention they live in Florida?), and the family started selling T-shirts featuring cartoon drawings of their son post-dental surgery."
danielkennedy74 writes "Newsweek.com becomes the latest in a long list of sites that will reveal an Easter egg if you enter the Konami code correctly (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, enter). This is a cheat code that appeared in many of Konami's video games, starting around 1986 — my favorite places to use it were Contra and Life Force, 30 lives FTW. The Easter egg was probably included by a developer unbeknownst to the Newsweek powers that be. It's reminiscent of an incident that happened at ESPN last year, involving unicorns."
metasonix writes "While the rest of the industry has been babbling on about the iPad and imitations thereof, Qi Hardware is actually shipping a product that is completely open source and copyleft. Linux News reviews the Ben NanoNote (product page), a handheld computer apparently containing no proprietary technology. It uses a 366 MHz MIPS processor, 32MB RAM, 2 GB flash, a 320x240-pixel color display, and a Qwerty keyboard. No network is built in, though it is said to accept SD-card Wi-Fi or USB Ethernet adapters. Included is a very simple Linux OS based on the OpenWrt distro installed in Linksys routers, with Busybox GUI. It's apparently intended primarily for hardware and software hackers, not as a general-audience handheld. The price is right, though: $99."
Funny, but a good point nonetheless. "Netbooks" were doomed from the beginning with the name. It's too general and subjective.
I'm replying to this from one of the four netbooks in my house, so I'm getting a kick....
They've put the entire town on a UPS. We need this technology here in India...
I live in India. If this is the future, I'm not interested.
The State Dept DOES listen to NIST, and was the first federal agency to adopt the NIST SP800 series as the primary guidance for information security issues. State also made up 100% of the panel that built the CAP certification, and built it mainly on SP 800-37.
Takeshi's Castle will be awesome.
Sadly, I mis-read the headline and came here expecting a photo of Miss Ubuntu February and Miss RedHat April....
