I used to work for a bank that would entice the lowly field techs with offers of exempt positions and once they had them, they'd work them to the bone. It was purely a scam to get more work out of already productive employees.
But when you have a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
It can't run Crysis, so it's not a gaming machine
The path you are advocating is fully of unintended consequences that you won't be immune from despite your obvious arrogance.
Yeah, it's sure to have a chilling effect on all those perfectly legal threats.
Where I work, you can smoke, but you have to pay more for your health insurance. I think it's $15 a month extra for smokers. If you're not a smoker you have to sign an affidavit to that effect. I think there's a penalty of some sort if it turns out you're lying.
Your parents and grandparents took care of everything for you when you were growing up. $80 is a small price to pay to make grandma happy. You owe it to her.
2600 has always been about cultivating that hacker mystique. It's a kids magazine plain and simple. I think it's important, because it does give kids who are interested in electronics and communication a place to congregate, but you ain't going to be saving the world reading a magazine.
Read Phrack instead. 2600 has always been and will always be an ankle-biter magazine. That said, their meet-ups are their biggest contribution to hacker dom. Back in the late 80's and early 90's that was the place to go to meet like minded kids, and get access to all the hacker BBS's.
That's what everybody says, until they actually try it. I'm sure there will be naysayers, but most everyone who's used my Note 3 has told me "gosh, it's not as difficult to use as I'd imagined". Once they try out the big screen, they're hooked.
iOS it's completely impervious to this attack.
Because no one's figured out a way to run unsigned applications on iOS, right? Umm...
It's not exactly the name recognition, it's the name's reputation.
Nokia: well recognized, well liked brand with positive reception everywhere,except amongst developers that actually programmed for Symbian.
Microsoft: well recognized, universally hated brand, regular finalist in "most hated company" competitions,but appreciated by developers for their excellent dev tools/environment.
Marketing 101 says: they picked the right name but for reasons that aren't readily clear to the general public
And the distinction is at least as meaningless as it is in Android.
Don't worry PETA, I'm sure they killed the camels like you do with all the animals in your shelters.
Chimpanzees are apes, not monkeys, you jerk.
The ISM bands are not unregulated. Operations in the ISM bands are not protected from unintentional interference, but the FCC most certainly has the authority to, but chooses to abide by agreements with the ITU deferring to ETSI.
This is exactly what the FCC should be regulating, and not the content of TV or Radio broadcasts. This type of intentional disruption of service should be policed by the FCC.
