Why don't we send convicts and CEO's(yes I know, same difference) on a space barge to Mars? Now discounting that they might run into an extra terrestrial, we get to solve a bunch of the world's problems a few billion dollars at a time.
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).
I completely agree with this. No need to get tricky, take your "update list once a month" idea and put it to paper. I doubt much will change besides passwords and an odd addition. Also remember that with email access a lot of sites will allow a "forgot password" option that will resend your current or a new temporary password to the registered email address. That's probably the biggest thing you can do digitally. Besides that, put pen to paper.
You do realize it's not the software on the phones that bug most admins as much as the software and additional hardware we need to keep in the server rooms right? And honestly Apple and Google are still ratcheting down their respective mobile OS's. You really think that RIM...makers of the BB torch can drop a mobile OS and just expect is to compare to the market that is at least 4-5 years ahead of it? Oh and android support on the playbook has already been proven garbage.
Dude that is great. I thought I was the only one pushing this horrid service out the door as quickly as possible. We give our user base allowances for their own smart-phone and then we only manage the email service. As soon as the split profiles are available we'll just take control of that instead. We haven't had a single problem with remote wipes or anything.
So long RIM...I can't say it hasn't been fun. Because it wasn't.
What if your tech skills are troubleshooting and adopting new technologies rapidly? What if your tech skills really have nothing to do with a particular piece of software? This former CIO wouldn't understand that by being a CIO he knows less than the people he had working for him. Which to me makes his opinion on how long someone's skills are "valid" invalid.
A question in earnest then. WHY ARE WE(the taxpayers in the US) PAYING FOR THIS? I, as a hard working tax paying citizen of the United States of America do not want my government to give $600 mil to some fucking car company. I do not want my government bailing out banks because they're too stupid to handle other people's money. I want my government to shoot people on my behalf and keep our country safe. I want my government to not give incentives to corporations for selling my job to India. Bottom line, I want the government to take care of a larger percentage of it's citizens. Because the richest 2% it's covering now isn't quite cutting it.
Hasn't anyone learned from Aaron Barr? Don't fuck with people on the net you don't know. They can/will get you. That's obviously besides the legal implications of these "researchers". First, sniffing internet traffic is illegal...even google got in trouble for doing that "accidentally". Second, there is absolutely no way to correlate the data without stealing files or potentially protected IP from the "target" computer. So these "researchers" should be prosecuted to the fullest degree of the law...just like the people they're working for usually want to do to the rest of us.
So nobody ever made a candybar phone???
Let's compare Apples and Danger's. The Danger Hiptop/Sidekick was wildly popular and "fashionable" not unlike the iPhone. It featured an in device app store, web access, email, camera, etc... By the time the Sidekick 2/3 dropped there were celebrity endorsements, and it was cool to whip out your Sidekick and show off your "bling".
Does that mean that Apple copied wholesale from Danger? Oh wait that's right there's the touchscreen that they copied from Palm. Have you realized that Apple seems to be the only company worried about people "copying" off them when they've done so much more? Polishing other people's ideas is not innovation, however it does tend to move the market forward. I mean had Apple not copied other people's ideas, we might not have gotten Android.
