TFH says it was built by Foxconn, but TFA does not. TFA says it was built by a third party like the way Foxconn builds for Apple.
I'm really waiting for an x86 phone that can be bought in the USA.
I believe that's called a Blackberry 950.
All snarking aside, though, I must ask: what is the attraction to an x86-based phone versus an ARM-based one?
Pay attention, naive little brother: A machine with Windows on it costs the same as a machine without windows on it for the same model and specs . . . assuming you can even get a Windows-free version. This is because Microsoft have dictated that it be so. The difference, then, is that in one case you are paying for, and getting, Windows; in the other case you are paying for, but not getting, Windows. That, naive little brother, is the Windows tax.
I thought this at first, also, but I have had a pretty close match to Speedtest's claims when using scp to send large files to/from my EC2 instances.
Bandwidth cost out to pretty well keep it out of the US. South Korea might win if that's the deciding factor.
If you have access to the ATM physically, why not just take the cash there and then?
I suppose you could trigger the dispenser to start dishing out cash nonstop, but it is not as easy as it sounds. Getting at the cash cassettes is not easy, either, because the lower half of an ATM is, as you might expect when thinking about it, built as a slightly modified safe. Getting at the computer and modifying the software really is the path of least resistance.

The bad? There isn't.
It seems as though installing DD-WRT/OpenWRT/Tomato/other-non-OEM-firmware will fix it on at least some routers made by Belkin.
Well, I can see two factors that you're not thinking about: (1) a person having accounts at more than one institution (e.g. I do) and (2) different people in one household having accounts at different institutions (e.g. my wife and I have mostly but not entirely the same banks). It makes it quite plausible that multiple large banks could have customers in over half of the nation's households.
This can be particularly pronounced with loans and credit cards for various reasons including "brokering" a deal for the end customer (think in terms of a car dealer or realtor finding you a loan/mortgage) and the fact that loans get bought and sold between banks.
This was precisely the first thing that crossed my mind. More to the point, I remember that both the EFF and the right-wing pundits (how's that for a combo?) were mocking the Clinton administration over it. RSA Security kicked up a hell of a fuss, too, though that may have been for show, given what we now know abou them.
Yeah, no kidding. I'm a part time sound engineer and DJ, and the "Power" indicator on my mixing board is an ungodly bright blue light. I usually end up setting something on top of it to keep it from blinding me in an otherwise-typically-low-light environment.
This is my favourite bit:
/dev/null is fast and web scale, I will use it. Is it web scale?
I have had no problem with LEDs burning out, nor with them not dimming at least as well as incandescent. There are currently seven deployed in my home, three on dimmers. I am typically in the $8-20 range for these bulbs.
Actually, that's per copy per picture.
This makes me wonder if video will be counted as 24/25/30/50/60 pictures per second of video. It would only take 17 seconds of 720p to run up a $1,000,000 fine.
I suppose, but the reason I play by the rules is because it gives me the right to tell them to go fuck themselves if they get upset about it.
