Actually most experienced developers will tell you that while backwards compatibility is holding it back, even minor upgrades tend to break things (in particular since Oracle took over).
Wish I had mod points to mod this up. I was about to write the same thing.
We write an applet based trading platform, and due to the API adding a method with a name we were already using, we had to re-engineer heaps of our code (along with other Java issues). For them just totally discontinuing Java 6 as soon as Java 7 came out (and still had heaps of bugs) was a stupid mistake.
You know this is
/. right? ;-)
When the Prime Minister openly mocks a person, their intentions are pretty obvious.
While I'm not a fan of Mr. Assange (quite the opposite really), I find the way he has been treated by our government absolutely deplorable. Especially when you consider how people like David Hicks (trained with terrorists) and Shappele Corby (convicted drug smuggler) have had the government behind them trying to get them home.
I just wish they'd block tweets that are directed straight at me, with a shortened link in them, from people I've never interacted with before.
He tweeted it about 45mins ago. https://twitter.com/jimcameron/status/184036733959143425 An amazing achievement!
This really needs to be modded to +6 Funny!
Julia Gillard is part of the Lower House, so if Assange is running for the Senate, they're not directly in competition with each other.
Anything in the initial design should be such as amount of storage space and video outputs (as it has to support many even with the most basic version). Beyond that no. The beauty of consoles is that it is a fixed hardware platform. Even the lack of hard drive in the original basic Xbox 360 was a disaster in my opinion (and caused troubles with dashboard upgrades later in the cycle for those units).
I'm wondering if this means they could have repeaters built in to the fibre itself. Could be pretty cool.

I think the system we have here in Australia works well (no idea how it works in the US). Phones allowed in the courthouse, but not in the courtroom. When I was on a jury a couple of years ago, we had to put our phones in a box before going on to the jury. Once we left the courtroom, we could pick up our phones and use them like normal. Not even from the smartphone side, but a jury shouldn't have any distractions like that while listening to a trial.
Not much really (had to buy the company donuts as punishment), but policies were changed to not allow changing our production network without going through proper channels. We had a similar database thing too where somebody accidentally removed all historical data for a project that was about to be rolled out, and due to the size, the techs had decided not to back it up. Yeah, policies are much better these days - major issues like this don't happen any more.
