I think if I cut beer out of my life, I'd drop 30 pounds in a year. But then life would be too boring.
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 seriously doubt that it is compulsory. I bet you can also turn it off like most new features.
I still can't get a new build to reliably resume from hibernation mode.
Clearly against the terms of service and will quickly be patched and disabled. Being critical of facebook in this instance seems a little office base. They are clearly getting limited access that they would not already have. No one is entitled to everything for free.
Seems like the police department would develop an incentive to pull over seeming wealthy individuals.
So on top of getting bigger fines you are targeted more often because you drive an above average car? No thanks.
Minimum fines. Or something tied to net worth.
I bought a laptop with a forward facing camera that I never intend to use. It was just cheaper than getting a laptop that didn't have one.
The same can be said for any off the shelf hardware. Sometime you are just stuck with what they make.
This is how I felt learning a rubix cube.

Just another reason to have a seedbox for all of your torrent needs.
Even for this?
As long as I am not held liable for any fraud on my account, similar to credit card protections, sure.
I think there is a big difference between text that you would want to take notes along side of the text and those books that are a more casual read.
For note taking, e-readers have still not perfected the ease of having a pen and being about to write directly on on in the margins of text. Print books still excel there.
But for casual reading, a device like a kindle paper-white is better in almost all regards. Reading at night off of its adjustable lit screen is perfect for not keeping you awake if you are trying to get to sleep. 90% of people that I have suggested one to have enjoyed it.
Maybe it already has exploded.
Are we really so ok with robbing people at gunpoint that we say this is not a big deal?
Obviously a BB gun is not as dangerous as a real pistol, but the reason he used it and not a more deadly knife is because many BB guns look real enough when you are being robbed and don't want to be shot.
Four years sounds fair to me.
Why? Because of an error? Just send your apology mailings, take your black eye and move on.
