Those platforms still help finding new undiscovered bugs. That's one of the points in continuing support for those.
OK, that's fine, but how is PIN code useful? Can't you just order on the web with your credit card without any PIN code? Can't you just pay for speedways in at least France and Italy without PIN?
To be honest I am wondering why there is even a PIN code on those cards given there are so many ways to use them without entering the PIN code.
Are you looking for a work at google?? If you don't, why do you post on this topic at all? All companies have different ways of evaluating people. If you don't want to work for google, you shouldn't probably even care about how they do search for their people. This amazes me, why would people even care about how google hires if they don't want to be hired by google at all???
and I voted for "not make that annoying noise"
Not making any noise is a bad idea because pedestrians or bikes (not the motorized ones) don't hear you coming. So that's a security hazard.
Actually, what is the difference between passing on the right and being on the right lane (where you should be) while driving faster (but at legal speeds) than the slow idiot who stays on the left lane (where he shouldn't be)?
There shouldn't be any reason to pass on the right if idiots wouldn't stay on the wrong lane. So please first give fines to people staying on left lanes, and nobody would ever pass on the right.
By the way, if this gets implemented, I will install a backlit 80km/h sign in my rear window, so I can flash it at tailgaters, making their speed control system hit the brakes. All in good fun.
No problem for me, my camera will still read the 300km/h sign I have put in front of it.
Hence why UEFI should be dismissed. If it's useless, just don't implement it, it's cheaper...
I guess, now, people who know the number of servers at google are laughing hard at MS
On mainstream devices, you will probably be able to get CM. On high end devices, you will probably get upgrades for 1 year. On Nexus, like in my comparison, you will probably get 2 years of upgrades for free and be one of the first to get them.
I would say, only an idiot would spend $300+ on a china unknown brand without any kind of warranty and not even any test. Most devices like the one you describe won't ever get any OS upgrade anytime soon (or even CM), and generally have pretty low end components, like a very low response touchscreen, weak battery, etc...
$300+ for a chinese unknown device when you can get a Google Nexus 4 for $299, who's the idiot there...
I tried to even type an email using one of those TLD in this comment and failed, now explain me how that will work under other current software implementations. This is just a big fail, like most IDN. Anyone can type [a-Z], but not most of those TLDs.

They're not using a "facewall" they're using OAuth, and I've never seen a single site not offer you the option to use another OAuth provider(google and twitter are the usual two alternatives). They do this because it means that someone who actually knows what they're doing can manage keeping your account detail secure instead of them.
That means facebook can manage keeping my account details secure? Hmm, probably I should be able to login to facebook using my google account...
As sad as I am to say that, each Ubuntu release looks more and more broken, in fact it even reminds me of Windows.
Really? Your computer suddenly shuts down for no apparent reason whilst you are playing a game, only to find it reboots and completes some random update? You can't work because of the constant stream of Java/Flash/Antivirus that keep blinking at you to update them? All the utilities you regularly use keep flashing up nag screens at you or are crippled requiring you to upgrade to the "pro" version?
YMMV, for me Ubuntu gets more and more stable with each release. I have zero problems with PP (only a few apps like Simplescan and a couple of others). The only reason I won't upgrade for the forseeable future is the advertising spam in the Dashboard.
I would suggest you to try Debian for a few months and than switch back to Ubuntu, you will understand what I mean.
Of course ubuntu is not as bad as windows, but each release brings it closer unfortunately. But I have to admit I haven't really used windows for more than 10 years now.
Honestly, I tried Ubuntu countless times, recommended it to a bunch of people, used it on some computers for a while, but they should really concentrate in getting the bugs worked out. Unfortunately, I am afraid, I will not use Ubuntu anywhere myself anymore. Don't take it wrong, I like the fact they want to put the linux desktop where it should be, but each release breaks more often that the former one, and I really don't understand why. As sad as I am to say that, each Ubuntu release looks more and more broken, in fact it even reminds me of Windows.
I will stick with Debian on my desktops/laptops, I am currently using testing/wheezy, which is way more stable than any current Ubuntu, even the LTS releases...
And yes, I know I will be flamed to give my opinion and I am repeating myself, but Ubuntu should really work out bugs instead of pushing eye candy.
