I'd be pretty cross if they pulled the battery out of my iPhone. They'll void my warranty!
Conficker controls 6.4 million computer systems in 230 countries
Are there even 230 countries in the entire world?
Finally,a use for hellajoules.
They're calling you because they want you to come fix it, personally. They don't want to do anything on their own, even if it's as simple as following verbal instructions over the phone. Users don't want to read an error to you. They either want to continue what they were working on before they were stopped unexpectedly, or continue researching kitten videos on Youtube.
I know the AT&T femtocells have a GPS chip built into them to prevent their use overseas. Can this device be used in another country? I would love to carry one of these with me when I travel to avoid international roaming fees.
Depends on the size of the laptop and where you'll be keeping it. If you're staying in a hotel for a week, you should be OK, but if you're backpacking through hostels, forget it - I hauled a 17" laptop in a backpack through New Zealand a couple of years ago. It was useful for writing blog entries and whatnot, but pointless when you can't find any (free) Wifi. To be honest, my T-Mobile Dash was more useful. I'd type up emails and entries on the phone then save them to the SD card. I'd then take the card to an Internet kiosk and pay for as little Internet as possible, just enough to copy/paste from the card into whatever I was sending to the cloud.
I'm going to make another trip to NZ in the near future, and will probably forgo the laptop this time in favor of my T-Mobile G1.
The implants will control brains in 2021.
Oh yeah, what an asshole. How dare he spend time and money to create something and not give it away! Moocher
Not always. It's not legally required, and a lot of websites won't out of privacy concerns. The information would be divulged with a subpoena from a court.
The original poster can file a counternotification to determine that information. If the person who filed the claim does not have the right to control copyright matters for the work in question, the poster would be entitled to damages suffered. However, they'd have a pretty tough time proving a financial loss.
Useful, practical, and educational. It's more of a power source, though technically I suppose it is a circuit.
Then they just mandate the use of GPS on bicycles. In urban areas they use the road too
FTFA: "'The Chevrolet Volt won't pay a penny of fuel tax,' Rahn said of the electric car that will make its debut next year".
Last time I checked, hybrids still had an ICE in them
The government does not hold a monopoly on every driving surface on earth. What about private driveways? Unpaved roads? Tunnels? Moreover, why GPS? You can get the same system with a publicly displayed odometer.
If this is ever mandated to be in a vehicle, I'll be wrapping that little bundle of joy in aluminum foil.
Downloading been called no different than shoplifting by members of the music industry - why is it not prosecuted accordingly? This woman lifted $23.76 worth of music. If those were candy bars she'd be slapped on the wrist with a small fine or light jail time.
