The people who faithfully buy "Pentium" are like the people who faithfully bought "Oldsmobile".

I just don't have the time to tune into most scheduled broadcasts. Especially since I have a family, and there's one TV with a cable box in the house.
I can get by with Hulu, Netflix, and the occasional download.
If it's classified as "he period when human activities started having a significant impact on Earth", then wouldn't the industrial revolution mark the start of that?
Or were coal-powered factories all over Europe belching horrible soot and smoke into the atmosphere not good enough?
It's better they try and fail than not try at all.
Just ask Nortel.
If they're serious about it, and properly examine the assets and tech they already have, I'm sure they can find something they're good at.
Quebec is a weird case.
KFC is KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) in France.
KFC is PFK (Poulet Frite Kentucky) in Quebec.
The difference between this and Google Docs is that it's baked right into the OS, and has hooks for third parties to implement it in their applications.
So that is some sort of standardization. At least, on Apple devices.
Everyone's taking that snippet waaaay out of context.
OS X and iOS work better together now, they don't work the same.
As in, for example, you start typing a document on your desktop, like you normally would, and you can continue it on your phone seamlessly and automatically if you have to go out. Both with different, and appropriate, interfaces.
This isn't about making your desktop work LIKE a phone. It's about making your desktop work WITH your phone.
I've been using Yosemite for a couple of months.
It's not turning into iOS. It's just working alongside iOS better. On the surface, de-glossification aside, it's more or less the same as Mavericks.
But of course, let's whip ourselves into a frenzy without even trying it out. This is Slashdot, of course.
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.
