Nevermind "->this-" close on not coming back here. This is game over, I'm done. Particularly this "video bytes" thing. I'm done.
Well... screen locker. You want to hide the contents of your screen whilst you are away from your desk.
Nope, up here in Canada they've at least two direct competitors.... Showmi and CraveTV.
Just, no. Slippery slope. It starts with ads for it's own stuff. Followed by ads from "selected" partners. I've paid my subscription fee. No ads.
And this is a problem how? Don't those subsidies exist precisely to encourage the development of these sorts of technologies? The government (and theoretically, by extension: the people) decided that to encourage the development of greener technologies and/or space technologies, they would provide various bits of assistance to companies, as well as consumers buying into said technologies. Musk appears to be successful in developing these technologies. Now people are complaining that he got government subsidies? Bah. We, the people get the benefit of these new emerging technologies, and Musk gets to make some money doing it so that these emerging technologies exist. Win-win scenario. The subsidies will go away at some point as the technologies become more mainstream.
Somehow I've never understood the penchant for people to have tens of tabs open in a browser. Right now I have 4, and two of them are email tabs. The only time I get anywhere near tens of tabs is when I'm actively searching for things and I open potential results as a new tab. But as I go through and determine which are useful, I close the rest until I'm down to the 1 or 2 that I actually need. With hundreds of tabs, how do you even find the tab that you need?
Read the article closer. Nowhere does it say that a stock phone is susceptible to this sort of attack. The story is presuming that malware has been installed onto the phone. Then, shockingly, software that has been granted access to the hardware can read the hardware. Inertial navigation systems have been in use since at least WW II. And if you have software on the phone that has purloined access to the accelerometer... it would like also have access to the wifi, cell and GPS stuff too.
"Apple IIg" ? Did the "s" fall off?
:) Only nitpicking because the first computer _I_ owned (as opposed to the family) was an Apple IIGS.
I don't know any _user_ that wants this. This pretty much guarantees that I won't have Firefox anywhere.
I was going to mention the same thing. The response to "Tesla has opened a bunch of their patents" had the answer of "Look! We have a bunch of patents!". Yeah, missing the point...
Odd... all of the VM tools that I install are either by the OS's package manager, or by mounting a CD ISO. No floppies.
I have to disagree with you. This wasn't a case of "hey, let's try this new, innovative thing" followed by "whups, unintended consequences, we need to stop doing that". This was a case of "Hey, those printer ink guys can get away with this stunt, and the software guys can get away with this stunt. So what if the actual consumers of both of those things abhor the idea. We're gonna do it anyway because more $$$$!" followed by "Oh wait, our customers have a choice to do something else with their coffee, so they're not buying our stuff anymore. Well, lets put out a 'oops' statement, and perhaps let a few more people use our DRM thingy." There needs to be _punishment_ for this. A failed marketing line was New Coke. This is quite a bit different.
Well... probably more accurate to call that C code. It's compilable under a C++ complier, but offhand I didn't spot anything that really made it C++-specific. Not a knock on the Prime Minister, but it might even be a little more geek cred to call it a Sudoku solver in C.
I thought it was a TSA regulation that it is not permitted for your luggage to travel on a different plane than you. Thus, yes, they'd have to pull your luggage off the plane if you didn't get on.
Erm, the comment I was replying to specifically called out bringing physical hardcopies. Although another poster did mention that perhaps having a physical copy at the gate might have been a good idea (don't consume weight on the plane, but is available to deploy if needed. Although does nothing for in-flight problems.). Would have turned cancelled flights into delayed flights.
