..to snap a photo of the menu with their smart phone and upload it to a website every day? Most restaurants around here do that.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I've used the Google Maps "Create a Map" feature, but have found that sharing for other users to see/edit is a bit... off. Also, given Google's propensity for dropping features without much pretext, it makes me wary to sink time and effort into a possibly ephemeral map. It does most of what I'm looking for it to do, but are there more robust alternatives out there I'm not finding?"
...relay to be compromised to remove the entire point of using Tor, it's certainly besides the point how high the churn rate or how low the chances are, isn't it?
...Congress has passed legislation to protect buggy whip manufacturers from the likes of Ford and Chrysler.
There's also laws in France which prohibit deep discounts on books, so while you do get a million bookstores per square mile, they all essentially have the same inflated prices (no more than 5% discount). This is protectionism to the extreme. I don't really think this will work long term.
But... I just brewed 5 gallons of hooch mead inside of a month. Drinking 3 glasses of the stuff is better than Nyquil, and way tastier.
Alcohol production is stupid easy. Sugars + yeast + sanitized brewing vessel + time = get 'er drunk.
My finger slipped. Instead of clicking on the "premium ad experience" I accidentally uninstalled Instagram from my phone.
Damn those fat fingers.
...in a mitten-shaped flyover state, I think part of the problem might be that these businesses don't realize that most of the US doesn't look like LA, San Fran, or New York City. Therefore their idea of useful or exciting really isn't to someone living in Herpaderp Iowa, population 4,354. Maybe if they tooled their services to be a little more useful to people who can't just hop on the subway to the latest gastropub, they'd be a bit more successful.
For once I should have read the article. Pricing tiers. Still 50GB is a lot to give away.
Just wondering. If it's advertising, I don't see it lasting long.
Even Walmart offers options such as that. This is basically one-hour photo wrapped to look like an Apple store. The overhead will be hilarious, and they will go under inside a year.
So: What's the best way to make your own personal "cloud"?"
I need a car analogy about the Library of Congress before i can understand that number.
...but if I sign up for Alice's network, and ten of my friends are on Bob's network, and another 35 are on Charlie's network... what do we gain by belonging to 3 separate networks?
If the content is all federated (Alice's network pulls contact info from Bob's network, etc), it acts the exact same as Facebook does for the end user.
This to me sounds like an arbitrary barrier to social networking. My friends don't fit easily into social network "buckets", and nearly none of my friends have time to sort and connect to various federated sources of information. They have 15 seconds to check one spot - facebook - for notifications, messages, and status updates. The really hip ones use Twitter.
So really: Sell myself and my friends on this in one sentence. "It's not facebook" is not that sentence - if Google can't make that work, neither will geeks trying to precisely bucket social communication like we were robots instead of messy, finicky humans.
A d3 was essential for my Pathfinder character, an alcoholic gnome "drunken master" sorcerer; the DM tweaked a mechanic to allow all of my spells to be affected by my alcoholism; 1 was 50% less effective, 2 was normal, 3 was 50% more effective. Made for some tense moments (my fireball spell fizzling) or some utterly awesome moments (my fireball spell shattering the wooden bow of an Orc ship, saving the town and drowning about 50 enemies).
I miss Pathfinder.
This is brilliant; allow people to preen over themselves by getting them to pay a fiver to let "more" people see their posts.
It's like printing money.
I doubt it will affect regular users of facebook much; I assume the kinds of people that would pay money to let their posts be seen more would be blocked already from most people's feeds....
