They also are just being sat on. Corperations need to have them forcibly taken back as those asshats will never give them up willingly.
I have heard of a monthly "running out of IpV4 addresses" on slashdot since 1998.
And this story has zero meat to it just like the last 690 stories here about it.
How about someone forcing HP to give up their gigantic chunk that they have been camping on unused for 40 years?
Honestly, force internet to be like a utility. dont let them be for profit and force them to spend at last 50% of all profits on infrastructure build out.
These asshole CEO's don't want to do the right thing, then it needs to be done at gunpoint with regulations and laws. Let the SWAT teams raid a CEO office for once instead of a poor persons house.
The surface pro and Surface pro 2 BOTH have had non stop issues with wireless drivers for two reasons.
1 - microsoft chose the shittiest wireless chipset made on the planet, the Marvell Avastar 88W8797 Wireless
2 - The drivers were written by drunken morons.
you can easily bork the wireless that require you to delete the device, uninstall the drivers, reboot, re detect and then reinstall the drivers. I was hoping that microsoft had fixed this with windows 10, but nope. it's the exact same crap windows 8 driver that somehow self corrupts it's self on boot up.
It doesn't help that Marvell as a company makes only steaming piles of dog shit. All of their chipsets are complete garbage and any maker that uses them are ran by morons.
Million, you must think this is 2001 in the Slashdot heydays...
I see you never begged at the feet of Silicon Graphics....
Sun on a throne? Sun were amateurs compared to SGI in making your customer kneel.
No sub $11,000 electric car that has 100 mile range.
No electric car that can charge in 6 hours at home without spending thousands on a fat charger and an electrician and permits to install it.
No apartments with electric charging stations.
Only for Xbox one. Worthless.
now let me play games on my PC via my xbox one. Kerbal space program, dont starve, etc... Then it's competition.
Playing GTAV on my windows tablet? boring.
Get better content, do better at troll control and get more of us to subscribe.
Why are you a cheap jerk and not paying a subscription? http://slashdot.org/subscribe....
Sorry, but Kung Fury was worth every single penny.
It's also better than anything that Hollywood has produced in the past 40 years.
Used it in comcast to make close to $1,000,000 a day gathering data from the old ad insertion boxes.
Solaris was a major PITA to deal with so I installed debian and simply rewrote the data harvester in C and it ran that way for 11 years. 4 of which were without any maintenance at all as I had left the company. and 4 years later I started getting notifications of script failures to a private email address I had that interfaced with my MSN watch. (Yes that long ago)
The funny part is someone recently fired that box back up as last month I had an email that it successfully rebooted and started the cron job but could not find the servers it was trying to harvest data from.
By using it to electrocute puppies.
I'll even do the install on my home myself.
give me 30 monocrystalline current tech 300 watt panels. 9000 Watt Hour will reduce my carbon footprint dramatically, in fact I will use a syncing inverter that will push my excess power back to the grid so that my neighbors can benefit from it.
I'll even put a sign in my yard for her if she does this.
Note to the uneducated that will pipe in, This is how most solar installations work, grid intertied syncing inverters without battery storage are incredibly common for solar installs. No it doesn't cost the power company anything.
In a world where we have "free speech zones" miles from events, and jack booted thugs called police that are too much of pussies to deal with crime instead of being assholes you dont get free speech.
Unless you are rich enough to cause the police problems. Then you can have some.
I was going to buy one, but after looking at owner forums and discovering the problems and horrible service that most people are getting I ran away.
I really like the idea of a small sporty car, and I really wanted one, but not if Fiat cant figure out that you have to bend over backwards for customers and make sure they are happy. Apologize while you fix your screwups and do not try and push back fixing them.
I do give honda plusses there. Recalls are done fast and mostly right. Except the pain recalls. Honda has the crappiest paint in the entire automotive industry, and the recalls are repainting with the same low grade crap that will fail in another 5 years.
