That's because the world is fucked and nothing maters. At all.
Seriously. If the Camel wasn't hurt shut the fuck up.
I read an article on this some time back and I unfortunately can't cite where. It stated that the more expensive hotels actually have lower margins of profit than the cheaper hotels and they can't afford to make those amenities for free. Everything is more expensive for them and the profit is lower, so they tend to nickle-and-dime the fees quite a bit more.
I did not RTFA of course, but another possibility is to give the ability to dump kiddie porn on a target's computer to create more suspicion and give them leverage and a PR boost. I used to think the Police were above such things and that the "plant a gun" meme was rare, but as we have seen in St. Louis and making public records available that show the victim might not be a great guy... maybe this happens more than we think.
Yeah, replying to a troll isn't good, but in a time when most sane people that the power of the police, the SOPs of the police, and the hiring practices of the police need a makeover it is yet another black eye. I support GOOD police officers, but it appears that the bad has penetrated every level of police procedure.
Yeah. They can do two factor auth. The key fob they sell will only cost $595 and work only with Safari.
In the new Feudalism, the corporations are going to own anything. It's the same thing. If they control how government is run then they ARE the government.
Yeah.. great, but Word renders documents differently computer to computer.
The use of
I was too busy to make comments when this story came up, but I've worked providing IT for offices for a good part of my life. You can get secretaries to bitch about anything. Moving to Windows so they can use the corporate-blessed Microsoft Office doesn't help that. You will still get bitching and moaning.
You are always going to have problems with any type of "office" app because of the people using it.
It's a decent point, but you didn't follow through. The whole point is that cars depend on computers MORE than having a computerized dashboard. What you are mentioning in your second paragraph is quite trivial.
Computers are used to regulate just about every system in your car. If a "hacker" gets into your car and shuts down the brake system then it's a whole lot worse than if he's just putting a picture of Goat.se on the dashboard.
And THIS, pals, is why the screaming about regulations is so damn stupid.
Someone didn't get his bribe!
The only irreplaceable people have "president" or "vice-president" in their title.
Soooo... by the end of next decade they are building a Linux distro.
The trick is that it will only run a version of Microsoft Office and almost nothing else. it will have a packing system that reboots the machine every 15 minutes, and have it's very own version of gcc that has tons of undocumented function calls.
Suddenly you forget that any filesystem other than NTFS exists.
You can't write code that works on any other OS.
You bow down to the great shrine of Gates.
You're screwed. Totally screwed.
