Umm, no. The computers at my workplace (UK govt) are the same as they have been for the last seven years. USB ports were disabled at the time of installation, but they are connected to the internal network as well as the internet. Still run several legacy applications that need IE (we're still on IE7). Even worse, even new applications that have been brought in within the last year are still IE-only. With no new updates to IE on XP platforms it's an insane risk
The iphone didn't actually run the chess programme. Most grandmasters could easily trounce an iPhone app - you need a fairly powerful computer to run software capable of beating a champ. This guy used his iPhone to connect to the internet so the programme didn't have to actually be running on the phone itself
No TVs support 5.1 output over optical/TOSLINK. None. Your TV may be passing out audio to your Sonos but it is just stereo which is being upmixed by the soundbar to fill five channels
Read the article. The first drug can't be created generically until July when the patent expires. By then Actavis will have switched everybody to the new drug.
There are no generic formulations of the old drug available yet. It only goes off-patent in July. Actavis are trying to switch as many people as they can onto the new patented drug before then, killing demand for the old drug. So yes, companied can still produce clones of the old drug in July but by then everybody will be on repeat prescriptions of the new drug, and most doctors won't bother to switch back.
Dude, if you have an Android phone, Google wouldn't need to use the Maps app to get your phone number or other personal details. The permission you have described is the standard "Device ID & Call Information" permission that is used by many apps. https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/6014972?hl=en-GB
Self-encryption? So it encrypts itself? Wow. On my laptop I have to encrypt my drive myself. Takes ages to work out all the ciphers

Well said. I've got no idea who this asshat is, or why I am supposed to be interested in his lame idea
Since when do we use 2d for second? Are we that short of space in the new Beta?
Those are all about high-dose supplements. Most people are talking about a daily multivitamin which has 100% or less of the RDA. The FUD about harm overblown
Facebook Beacon was the last time I remember them bowing to public pressure. Of course, since then they have instituted technologies that are far more intrusive, yet after the initial outrage over the privacy violations dies down, people just forget about it and silently accept the FBRape
It would be nice if TFS included an explanation of who Laura Weinstein actually is, and why anyone should be interested in the views she writes on her amaterish-looking personal blog.
"To prove the point, here's an anecdotal based on a sample of one (myself)" I don't think proof means what you think it means
