whats wrong with the power companies charging two costs: One for the amount of next electricity drawn per month and a second as a line cost that everyone must pay in order to keep service? The line cost should cover updates to service to the house and stuff like that.
I'm a little unclear how I, as a user, can get exploited by this. (I know that it's bash (which pretty much makes MSWindows users immune), but what about the rest of us?)
Do I need to just browse a website on my computer?
Do I need to install Apache/PHP or some other server and open an appropriate port on my system?
Do I need to have port 22 open?
Do I need to have a root user?

Interesting thought: Cloud providers should offer a low-cost option for getting your petabyte of data out of their system.
Perhaps mailing you a drive (or series of drives) with the data on it? If they allow you to run zfs or other filesystem with snapshot capability, create a snapshot and request that it be mailed to you. Maybe they'll even link in the available drives that can handle the data and you pick which one(s) you want.
Just once more, to again inspire the children of the world for a generation.
Anyone who could afford a Karma and wanted electric would have already bought a Tesla S or Roadster.
The only way they'll sell some is to greatly upgrade the interior to Tesla Model S-type screen and software.
If it's over 100 you really should see a doctor, period. There's almost certainly something wrong other than just deconditioning.
Pretty sure they hit the '25,000 electric cars to the people' mark.
As for buying cars from dealers, I've been in quite a few purchases myself. The only dealer I had a reasonably good experience with was Saturn.
With Lexus, Jaguar, and BMW, there was a lot of negotiation. I had to go to several dealers to get competing prices (which were *always* with a spread of $2-3K). In addition, the push was always to buy something either off-the-lot or something that they could have brought over from another dealer's inventory within 2-3 days.
I was with my dad when he went to get his BMW 5 series. They pushed him into a few options he wasn't particularly interested in because they could get the car to the lot in 2 days. And once he signed the contract, it was a done deal. He called the dealership a couple hours later and wanted a different color, and the answer was that the car was already on it's way from across the state. It arrived more than a week later with barely a 'sorry for the delay' from the dealer.
Whether or not his new digital music format can or cannot be pirated is something that remains to be seen
Can you listen to it with your headphones of choice?
The answer to this will be 'No'. The obvious way Apple is going is to change the audio output jack to the headphone to something proprietary like Lightning.
(It won't work, but it will fail like FireWire did. A few people will buy it, but at best it will be an accessory port in addition to the standard audio jack.)
Not necessarily. Whenever I make a call, I am interacting with the audio stream from the other end of the line.
Perhaps he's suggesting musicians just get (900) numbers and publish them.
I'm pretty sure I wouldn't pay to have U2 sing to me live via my phone, but some others may.
Hopefully this will allow a good XBMC client. Would love to be able to watch netflix seemlessly within XBMC.
As an aside, what's an excellent wifi repeater? Mine can't cover an acre, but my back yard gets wifi signals from across the street.
Agree 100%. I with I had more ethernet connections in my livingroom and bedroom media closets. When I finish my basement I'm not going to make the same mistake.
WiFi is great for laptops and phones and stuff, but I don't want my movies or music glitching because of wifi interference.
Much the same. I have a single NAS in the basement with a backup of the important stuff (documents, photos, mp3s, home videos).
My personal desktop keeps all the movies, etc. All the computers on the network rsync my desktop computer (which is essentially always on).
I have the 19" wheels and have about ~12K miles on them, I think. Will have to pay attention to them this winter.
First winter in my Model S, and the last time I had a read wheel driver car through a winter was 2004-2005.
Pretty much like the last BMW 3 Series I bought, in other words.
Seriously. BMWs are great cars to drive, but they nickel and dime you on the options at time of purchase.
