It is normal for sync to ask for a password/key. Otherwise anybody could grab your private data.
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).
This is because web pages have an infinite height, you don't need columns you can just scroll instead.
I know this happens but the total radiation from the occasional handshake is far less than a phone call and the tower will be handling calls all of the time.
Of course people do. But when your phone is on it sends occasional handshake messages to the tower. The tower will be contacting many phones which are making calls so it has a much higher average (mean average) signal strength.
Your point ignores the fact that your phone is in use for a small fraction of the day but the tower is in constant use. You need to apply a large adjustment on the optimal range for this.
Really? where I live (UK) you would contact the police. They investigate and the crown prosecution service would prosecute the thief for theft. You can't sue someone for a criminal offence.
When I am researching something I often open a lot of pages from a search, organised tabs keep these items together. I am only ever going to look it up once so I won't need a permanent bookmark, but I still might want 20 web pages open on various topics.
When I visit that website in my browser (firefox) I get a little bar at the top asking if I want to share my location with the website. So I vet the sites myself on a case by case basis rather than having Apple decide for me. I am under the impression that Android has a similar permissions system when you install an app.
This is useless as a security measure. If the software is installed on your system then it has enough access for whatever it wants to do anyway. On startup it already opens the addons window and highlights the newly installed item giving a message saying it has been installed.
He isn't trying to avoid being prosecuted for this case. He is trying to have the case heard in the UK on the basis that he will get a fairer hearing and a more reasonable sentence. The US government is trying to get him extradited on the basis that he caused millions of dollars of damage. This claim seems ridiculous because it is based on the cost of securing their system, as far as I have heard he did not modify the system, he just read some files.
As an analogy is is like you not having a lock on the front door, then having someone walk in and not do any damage, but then you decide you want $large sum in damages to hire a security consultant and get a lock fitted on the door.
Sailing boats don't go faster than the wind when moving directly downwind. They tack at an angle which allows them to go faster than the wind speed in the downwind direction while never actually travelling directly downwind.
GPU's are already highly "multi core". They have been for years. I am not sure if they call them cores, they are slightly different from CPU cores but it is effectively the same idea. his si why GPU's are so much better than CPU's at graphics and some other parallel tasks with things like CUDA.
1 year is definitely unusual for the life on a PC. My parents still have a nice Dell from 2001 (with the ram tripled from the original and an extra hard drive) which is working fine. The floppy drive on it died but nothing else has had a fault. But ignoring the anecdotes, the data shows that the average life is far more than one year. Here in the EU it is not legal to offer less than 2 years warranty so they need a decent survival rate just to stay in business.
Tabs usefully group views, so I can open a window which I use for looking up some maths things, another for slashdot stories perhaps. Also current window managers aren't designed for having that many different windows open, so many applications use the tabbed approach like editors/ides.
Tabs can provide a specialized interface for web browsing such as tree style tabs which works very well, providing another level of organisation.
It happens faster than the speed of light, but it isn't any use without extra information which can only be sent at light speed. You could use it to send secret messages since the state is instantly transferred and cannot be intercepted on the way and then the extra information can be used to get the data.
