As a new apple user, I'm curious about this, what did Apple do? What calls up a VM on OSX? Haven't noticed anything yet.
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).
People think of these devices as fun things... entertaining things. They are, in fact, designed mostly for entertainment. Why is this good for schools?
One of the more unfortunate things I've ever read on Slashdot. Rather appropiate username!
No offense, but are you 16, or perhaps never explored the internet? There's hundreds of alternatives to blogging platforms, including rolling your own. I think even Google Plus works like you'd want with super advanced "Chronological order" features.
I imagine Yahoo will indeed screw up Tumblr, but "Think of the artists!" is the last reason to get worried about...
Apple has so much money in their war chest, why don't they just buy them outright instead of trying to strike a deal? Is this such a crazy idea? Or maybe they just don't want to actually run them.
After owning an iPad since release in 2010, and now switching to a Mini, I've come to the realization that the full size iPad is much more useful. You trade portability for overall comfort too.
I thought the mini would be just as good as the full size iPad, but it's not. If you had given me the two choices in 2010, I'd have chosen the Mini, so Steve Jobs did it right : )
Firefox didn't crash for me, for what it's worth. I did type it with a capital F.
I managed to crash a couple other apps I wasn't using, including the Finder, so it's an interesting bug, although kind of silly how the summary blows it up.
Well, your system is just as stupid because it makes it even harder for the "little guy" to patent something. He might not have any money for it, and while he comes up with it someone else with deeper pockets might snatch his idea and patent it themselves.
You say: "your community" is richer--where "your community" is a book store.
But you make it seem as if the money the book store receives disappears, but presumably it goes to improve the local community? What about the money the local bookstore receives from you and pays taxes with?
As a customer, seems to me paying a bit less to "foreign" companies just to save some money for myself is bad in the long term? Similar to WalMart's deal.
Just asking questions that popped into my head and would like some clarification on your post.
Just because you haven't heard of the guy who designed both the Maps app and Siri doesn't mean it wasn't a very significant move for them to sack him. I don't know the names or importance of any Obama cabinet members in the US but I bet they're kind of significant.
Presumably it will make things better in the future, but a public apology and important heads rolling is at least an acknowledgement that they want to do things better.
But if everyone can copy what you do in seconds, what will be the incentive to research and develop? Businesses are businesses...
Just because you "try your best" to eat healthy doesn't mean you can throw out decades of nutritional studies.
Look, it doesn't matter how many sugary drinks your acquaintances gulp down every day, what matters in the end is how many calories they burn compared to you.
If you work out once a day and the rest of your time is spent at a desk in near-immobility, while they have a physically active job, then they're going to burn more calories than you. Regardless if you work out and don't drink soda.
The only logical conclusion is that you're somehow ingesting more calories than you need and burning less than you should (if your goal is to be thinner).
It doesn't matter if you believe you are "doing it better". It's simply physically impossible for you to consume less calories and stay fatter.
So yes, it is all in the foods consumed.
Of course, this does not mean they are healthier than you, but it also does not mean you are healthier, or that drinking 8 sugary drinks per day is conducive to being as thin as they are.
I don't email directly anymore, I post on G+, recipients receive it in whatever means they favor, email, text notice, online, G+ account, whatever. If they don't have a google account, it goes to their email.
What happens if Google decides they don't like you and you get banned from their service?
Agreed. Even the comments that ask "Why is Stratfor evil" are at least more inquisitive than the people automatically saying Anon was right. It's ridiculous how "educated" commenters don't know about Stratfor.
You're pretty ignorant about this.
Anyone can access Stratfor's content for about 100 dollars per year. And if you just subscribe to their newsletter (no money required) they send free "intelligence" reports every few days.
It's not like only companies can receive their information, any global citizen can educate themselves if they choose to, have "First mover" advantage.
Their analysis are usually very informative, no bias (unlike "free" news), and from my limited understanding, they tend to get a lot of their information and predictions right.
It's like hacking Slashdot for offering a subscription option or something. I don't agree with this move by Anon.
