Well, if they're competing with a Chromebook, it just has to handle the browser part of the equation.
I use the Citrix receiver, since the Windows App Store version doesn't start up stuff (like the Citrix Connection center) when you log into your PC that disables window effects/themes. It also doesn't throw annoying icons in your start menu and on your desktop for remote apps. Great for the PC you only occasionally connect to Citrix with. I also use a cool Kanji lookup app on my convertible ultrabook. I have a few games I've bought through it, but it's pretty minimal.
I fully expected plenty of ass-hattery to come from this acquisition. I wasn't aware, however, that justin.tv would have any outcome from this. I don't know why I didn't see it coming, with them being under the same corporate entity. I can't wait to see what other crap comes down the pipe.
Yes. Often times in less critical systems, it happens. If it's critical, though, or has any privileged accounts that can access critical stuff, it definitely keeps it. Let me tell you, as nice as the Windows Firewall interface is in Server 2008 and above, it can be a painstaking endeavor to find all the exceptions you need. Then there's always the support guy asking "Umm... why come... why come I can't ping this? It's broke. Fix it."
I have to admit that I don't care for the way they treat their employees, but I admire a company that values long-term profits over the short-term. I'm so conflicted now.
If you're on Windows, using the built-in Microsoft IME with a Japanese keyboard allows me to use the hardware keys to switch input modes and/or use the direct kana input. I don't think many people use the direct kana entry, though. Even without a Japanese keyboard, you can use Alt+Shift to switch input methods, and Alt+tilde(~) to switch from direct entry to IME entry. Still kinda blows, though.
I think they reversed it for the little Atom devices. I don't understand why so many Bay Trail devices want to run 32-bit, when they can do 64, but it's still a thing.
Here's a Honda press-release on it. It is entirely possible that the S2000 system is something different, but I have a feeling that this is just a combination of an EPAS system that does something similar, in addition to varying weight. I agree with you on the lack of mechanical linkage. Nissan has some system that retains the driveshaft for times when the steer-by-wire is malfunctioning, but I have a feeling that by the time it's malfunctioning (10 years on), the mechanical fall-back mechanism will likely be faulty too.
That would also be an issue with the electric steering alone. While it's hydraulic, my RX-7 also has speed sensitive power steering and it works rather well. Variable ratio steering was first available on the Honda S2000, and I don't think anyone's complaining. This system simply uses EPAS to accomplish much the same thing.
Sounds interesting, but I feel like my eyes might crust over from the blinding light.
Get your information and "first hand knowledge" out of my rage thread. I just finished sharpening my pitchfork and everything...
Fukushima's a pretty big prefecture (13,782.54 km2/5,321.47 sq mi). It's ranked third by area. I'm sure there's plenty of safe land there.
Very much this. Backup the important things. Beyond that, get it covered under renters/homeowners insurance.
I won't be able to watch it. My IPTV service is down.
Well, there's also the issue of the numerous global financial centers along various coasts.
