This debunking article, is, well, bunk. The truth is 30 odd percent of Seagate 3tb drives failed in the first year. Pod version, pod type, pod size, usage, and internal vs shucked were all irrelevant. In fact, the external drives shucked failed less often than the internals even though they were exactly the same model. No other drive, bought at the same time and used in exactly the same way(s) had a failure rate like that. For example, the Seagate 4TB drives have one of the lowest failure rates, in exactly the same conditions as the 3TB model.
Actually email is one of the most *complex* servers to run. You think someone who is using their ISP email is going to go from that to their own server? Why? The OP question was regarding SPAM filter's not working. You want a great SPAM filter - google is the best.
They would much rather you join the 21st century and use any email service except theirs. Take the hint, choose Microsoft or Google and move on...
How would infecting their own customers PC help the distributors?
If it's a hobby, sure. For me by spending more on proper tools for my job, I finish work sooner, and have more time to enjoy the finer things in life. Like Chinese food. In Shanghai. Xeon-e2-1345/24G/SSD boot/2@2TB drives. $1000 all in last year.
How does one play?
They were right after mapquest to jump into the mapping game. Their China coverage is miles and miles better than Google, with both english and mandarin names on the map (google is only mandarin when you are in China). Too bad.
That's worked so well in the rest of the USA, it should work awesome in the air too. More guns=less violence!
That's only in Beijing and only during times of 'unrest'. Most of the year there is nothing, not even theater, so when they are ordered to dig out the wands, the batteries are dead and no one can remember how they work. Saudi Arabia is the best - do not wake the sleeping guards, it annoys them. Please walk around the detector with your luggage to prevent it from beeping. Thanks.
You clearly haven't read the brief, or even have a basic understanding of the case (hint: API's are not copyrighted). If Google wins, there is no such thing as copyrighted software anymore. All software with available source code, can simply be pasted into the IDE of your choice and compiled. Everything will be totally free. As a software developer your source code can be taken from you and used in any manner, including the one you originally write it for, without payment or recognition. If you like the sound of that, support Google! If you think that doesn't sound quite right, support Oracle. Your call.
Uhm, they copied the ACTUAL java source code. Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V. Compile. Hey, we have a new API for Android! And it works just like the JAVA API you are used to programming with! Same calls and everything! Amazing! Hence, the lawsuit.
No. Not at all. Read the $#%^ briefing, please. Google did a copy/paste of the Java source code into their own source code. The code that creates the API's is copyrighted. The API's themselves are not.
I assume the latest version of IIS is required, and all developers have to do is enable the proprietary extensions on the server and in the browser to make this work. Wait, this sounds kind of familiar...
To get NSF or DARPA money you have to fill out a grant application...it's the model that's broken. Adding more money to a broken model won't help much.
It shouldn't be scientists who agree, but their (verifiable, repeatable) research that agrees. Rock star scientists get us in trouble....
