The network owner can and should be able to set the terms of service for access to their network and if you don't like a root CA being placed on your system, don't use that network get their own network -that is, a mobile WAN hotspot or adapter assuming these are independently owned devices. Ones owned by the school should be subject to the school's requirements.
If the patent examiner clerks that process the applications have ANY actual subject background at all.
If I tried to patent breathing as a way to facilitate oxygen intake, how far would that get before somebody said "you're kidding"?
...is support for old Windows apps esp VB6.0 apps that run really poorly on Win 7 let alone Win 8.x. I've found several that run fine on Wine on Linux that no longer run on MSFT Windows and Microsoft is not interested in fixing this at all.
Some LoB (line of business) applications created by non-IT groups in companies depend on old app binaries that "work" and have no interest in updating the code or the operating environments they run in and in fact, dread the continual change in MSFT OSes over the years, because these apps get broken when driver support stops for that OS and can't always be run in ritualized VMs with legacy operating systems.
MSFT thinks everybody loves programming and always wants to rewrite their apps in the latest language ( C# right now) for the latest OS API and GUI ( WinRT formerly modern, formerly metro) but the parts of a business that are NOT Information Technology don't like development - they have product to make, sell, ship and bill for.
So Wine on volume Android devices may be the answer for those LoBs.
a) I like the beta, please do it asap
b) It's not there yet but keep working on it, but don't turn it on now.
c) It's an abomination. Do not use it ever.
d) I don't read Slashdot you insensitive clod.
If c) greatly exceeds the sum of a) and b) responses don't do it. All d) votes, for obvious reasons, don't count.
It's no coincidence they're going to rename it the Chrometer
and Google can't grab information from your Nest, the unit will shutdown your furnace until you get that connection back up.
Lots of options out there, but which ones would you recommend we consider for a modern management GUI? More importantly, why is that the right choice?"
SSD solutions that are far too expensive to be relevant for most individuals or even corporations are nothing new.
You can get an mSATA or M2 small ~32-64GB SSD drive (which many motherboards have direct attach slots for now) for about $60. If you use that as your boot / OS system / critical-app drive and get a slow multi-TB spindle HDD drive for your bulk load-and-save storage you'll get huge improvement in your startup/shutdown times and general system operation while still having cheap mass media. Is that far too expensive?
As Dr FrankNfurter says in RHPS "I didn't build him for YOU!!!" It's amusing whenever new datacenter/server technology gets posted on
"I'm too busy to research this and form an educated opinion, but I do have time to tell everyone my uninformed opinion."
Well you can't argue with that, but certainly a whole industry would argue with your assertion.
The hemispheric disaster has not happened yet. But until they finish unloading reactor 4 - which won't be until end of 2014, any serious earthquake (a high probability in that area) could cause the precarious elevated rod bundles to crash down and even the best case scenarios, if that happens, are ugly.
How bad things are after that is still up for debate, but reactor 4 is a clear and present danger.
...from becoming a hemispheric disaster..
Even the laughable freeze-the-ground-around-it plan seems to have been hatched to mollify Olympic commission voters who still gave Japan the 2020 games as the 'safe' choice over Istanbul and Madrid.
Do they think they will be cheaper or more capable or exceed Elon Musk's company by any metric in 5 years?
... when some foreign visitor sends a strongly encrypted message they the Russian authorities find difficult or impossible to decrypt. If this were a typical Russian citizen, this would probably merit a visit from some representative of the authorities who will persuade you that the encryption is a bad idea based on bad consequences if you don't. In the case of the international attendees, one assumes the Russians will not able to do this quite so casually. But they will probably be pretty obsessed with those visitors...
