They've hired a science advisor, but why haven't they hired a comedy advisor?
"I have 1 public facing ip and my whole house behind it."
But for how long? How's that gonna work out when your ISP eventually puts you behind a Carrier Grade NAT? Unless you wanna pay for "premium service", that is.
This goes a bit further than remote wiping.
It's already somewhat available with iOS devices, and is completely under the user's control. Basically, without your AppleID and password, the phone cannot be wiped and reactivated by a thief, essentially making it a fancy paperweight. (So it's not really a "kill switch", just a really strong theft deterrent.) The owner can wipe it themselves remotely, for security, but it would still *also* require their AppleID and password inputted directly into the device to reactivate it.
It's been working since September, and no one's found a way to bypass it. (Yet.)
If they wanna be fair, then Cosmos should be given equal time in their church.
Awesome. So now all those assholes in luxury cars can have even brighter headlights to blind me in my mirrors.
Gotta say TV. Nothing beats memories of tuning in week to week to see the latest instalment...
People keep grimy, grungy screen protectors on their phone the entire time they have them.
They have this beautiful, pristine sheet of glass they're "protecting"... and they never actually see it or get to touch it.
It kinda bothers me.
Matt Smith is far better than David Tennent to me, and I grew up watching the Fourth Doctor.
Bob's Burgers is great, but it's a bit different than what people expect in a "cartoon". It's a situation comedy based heavily on dialogue, much of it improvised. In fact, the show would probably work equally as well audio-only.
hydroelectric power plant in my city is 100MW - that single power plant could power two bitcoin mining networks
How many houses and businesses could that power?
I bet Google's servers use more power than this...
Google is actually useful to hundreds of millions of people.
Apple Inc.: Mac OS X Version 10.8 Mountain Lion on Intel-based Macintosh computers
The "iOSification" of OS X is overblown hyperbole at the moment. Yes, Apple's simplified some of the core apps like iPhoto. Yes, Apple's made the Calendar app fugly. They added the "Launchpad", which you never have to actually see unless you invoke it, and they added the Gatekeeper security feature, which you can switch off with a few clicks of the mouse.
They also recently got rid of the guy who was responsible for some of that stuff, so we may see a roll back on the nasty skeumorphic nonsense.
The core OS, and its UX in general, are still excellent, and every single app distributed outside of the App Store still have as much freedom as they used to.
Your site is collateral damage. They're not blocking your site specifically, it's just that ad-blocking is turned on by default.
So, if anything, blame all the sites out there with awful, intrusive ads that drove people to ad-blocking.
Brilliant. That's like buying new software that requires Windows XP.
Well, they did say "Holy shit! This is the way of the future, let's investigate this distribution option...", but they ended it with "... and try to hold it back as long as we can."
