This move strikes me as being more like Jack of All trades, master on None.
Yes... exactly, just like the smartphone itself (Consumer Reports, for example, rates NONE of the current smart phones as have very good or excellent voice quality). People want this. Most people don't need high powered 3D gaming platforms, number crunching, or to be able to recompile a kernel, or do anything but the most simple video and photo editing. My current phone is so slow, I wouldn't possibly want it to act as my desktop - but in the future, new hardware, full desktop use (keyboard and mouse on a large screen), then it would make no difference.
So everyone under 25 is a brain dead moron?.
No, just your average person... the description of the crime fits that narrative. Perhaps you were a genius who understood there were consequences to your actions - science has shown us that's not typical of the under-25 crowd.
So... congratulations on taking the comment completely the wrong way.
he did not lose his freedom of speech at all; freedom of speech != freedom from any and all ramifications.
So in your version of the USA, people can say whatever they like, and consequently be (fired | publicly shamed | arrested | executed) and you consider that freedom of speech?
I'd hate to think what you consider to be a LACK of freedom of speech! Cutting-out of tongue at birth?
No, that's not what I said, but thanks for trying. Arrested and executed are functions of government, the government cannot limit your freedom of speech. Getting fired from a private corporation (which is not even what happened, but I'll play along) is not a violation of free speech.
You use Ubuntu on servers?
We do. So what? Ubuntu has a server distribution... it works great, is easy to maintain, and we use it for internal (behind firewall) use. And?
Yes, but his was the first first post, which for first posts was a first.
1) Exact string matching. As an example, if I search for " 'x.25' " don't give me hits for something with dimensions of 45mm x 25mm.
2) Allow more complex search constructs . For example I'd like to be able to specify the search term " 'x.25' near protocol -handbook ". You can sort of do that with Google's Advanced Search, but it's extra steps and you still don't get terms like 'near' or exact match.
3) Bonus points for boolean constructs such as " (lions or tigers or bears) near woods ".
In short, provide a robust search engine that will support meaningful search terms that can be used for more than shopping for a new TV or figuring out who stars in your favorite reality tv show.
