I'm not clear as to why every single person flying into an airport from the hot spots isn't put in quarantine upon landing.
If there is a decent navigation app available then they will make a dandy automotive platform, at a hundred bucks. That reminds me, I need to leave a bug report about Viago being a piece of shit.
Stealing US Army software or stealing IP and proprietary data related to Xbox Live?
I suspect that it was the same thing. Perhaps this is part of the "peace dividend"? Full Spectrum Warrior was developed from a military training tool. Perhaps there is similar crossover here.
"warez". Are you 12 years old?
No, more like three times that. But when I was into that, that's what it was still called, which tells you how long ago it was.
Relax. I'm quite sure this feature can be turned off.
Perhaps I will demonstrate some interest if it is demonstrated that it can be completely excised. But among my concerns is that the hooks meant for this purpose will be easy for malware to employ.
Conservatives loves to tout how anti-business California is,
Well, I'm a Liberal. California is really anti-small-business, if I left that out then I sincerely apologize. If they can make big wads of money on you at once then you're in, baby.
but they never explain why California's economy PER-CAPITA is larger than 33 other states.
Hollywood. Cause: It was actually near some of the least desirable land in the USA, which studios could snap up for nothing. Silicon Valley. Cause: Education, climate. An actual win. Food production. Cause: Environmental sensitivity was discovered before California was completely shit upon, also coastal climate.
Application lock-in, Microsoft is trying to leverage their existing large application comparability for leverage.
The second is related to the first, in the MS is trying to use there large monopoly in the desktop market to build a monopoly in handheld, tablet and phone.
I believe both will be a failure, they sat on their hands two long while Apple and Google built OS's and now have significant application catalogs. Android and iOS will be very difficult to displace at this point. They'd do better to focus their attention on maintaining and building their enterprise services and continuing to build and support desktop computers. That would probably mean porting office and other major enterprise applications to both the iOS and Android. I simply don't believe they can displace android or iOS at this point.
the current administration has done more than any previous administration to expand it's[sic] intrusive power
No, sorry. Nothing's been done during Obama's terms that even remotely compare with the instantiation of the PATRIOT act and the TSA as far as harmful changes to the previously existing state of affairs by the government.
And then during Obama's terms, we've seen the drug war lighten up on marijuana, we've seen expansions of gay rights, we've seen increased rights and capabilities for consumers and less for credit card companies, access to Cuba has opened up, private sector spaceflight has been encouraged...
Obama's got his warts, all right -- constitutionally speaking, the man seems to be insane -- but on the scale of making life worse for all of us, he's done nothing even close, singly or in aggregate, to measuring up to the Bush/Cheney administration's insults to the body politic.
Well no wonder your Tesla blew up....
However, there are a few edge cases that really haven't gotten enough attention and/or love to smooth them over: Apple has some older models with 32-bit EFI, and 64-bit CPUs, that are a bit weird, and there was a period where MS/Intel was using 32-bit Atom processors, with UEFI and no BIOS fallback, in order to hit aggressive price points for 'win-tablet' systems. These are a huge pain to boot to anything except the OS they were designed for; because distributions with good UEFI support almost always expect 64-bit CPUs, and 32-bit distros almost always expect BIOS booting.
There may be others; but the 'clover trail' based hardware that uses Z2760 or similar atom processors is what I'm talking about.
You are missing the fact that pinned apps to the windows 7 task bar randomly vanish. I stopped pinning apps as I wa losing them and couldn't repin them until after I unpinned them first.
Windows corrupts its data caches easily and it can be a pain to undue the damage. This is a known issue going back to th original release of windows 7.
Of course they are mistaken. The quote said laptops.
No one. Their own quote explicitly said "laptops".
Why is this considered informative? The sentence you quoted clearly said "laptops" not "tablets".
