Ok, internet tough guy! You are really scaring some people with your big talk and threats...probably couldn't back them up anyway.
It's not that simple and I expect you know that. A lot of people view "the bosses" as, on a different level, and they are uncomfortable sharing their real feelings for many reasons including fear of the consequences of doing so. That is why there are shows like Undercover Boss, actually.
In other cases, workers may not even know what makes them more productive - so it would be hard to actually get this information from them by simply asking them. It is easy for workers to say what makes them feel better, but not what makes them more productive necessarily.
The ISP wants to keep the cost down for someone who only uses the internet casually
Wrong! The ISP wants to maximize its profits, period.
Not only that, but given enough time and PR work, they can effectively redefine the publics perception of what evil is.
"Americans have grown pretty fat and lazy but we are still a relatively heavily armed people, and you can't exactly go around ordering F-15s to drop napalm on suburban Cleveland. "
LOL! Those who do not remember history are doomed to repeat it, as they say.
Don't remember the MOVE Movement? The govt dropped a military grade C4 bomb on a civilian townhouse complex in Philly...woo!
Well the Versa was pretty good and a decent car but with the new 2014 if you get the stick, you can't get any of the nice options, which is really just stupid. My '07 Versa is a 6spd manual with the tech package and it's served me well.
You can use the mouse, still? The tablets generally have a touchpad built into the cover and there are always bluetooth options available.
If you were looking to run something old you would probably use either of these options.
It's not "prohibition", people can drink all they want, they just don't have the right to get behind the wheel and potentially kill someone.
And? A lot of Americans come to Canada for medical care because it's cheaper to pay cash here than to pay their insurance co-pays, etc, in the US.
Go back and read the original part of this subthread. The point was that when flash was originally ported those API's were undocumented / secret, and it was only after awhile they became available, at which point Adobe started using them.
It's more likely to be a legal concern. Big corps like Adobe have teams of uptight lawyers that stop them from doing anything even remotely legally questionable.
Calling undocumented API's "just because some dudes on an open source project do it" is not a legally defensible position.
Flash ran like shit on Mac's, for sure. Ran great on Windows, generally. I have no idea what Linux users were/are forced to endure.
This isn't exactly true, though, a lot of people keep repeating it.
I'm not saying flash is great, I'm just saying this particular argument is kind of bullshit and no-one really thinks it through.
In a way I kind of like that flash is around still because advertisers still use it so if you block flash you block all that nonsense. Once advertisers catch on and switch to all HTML5 ads will be more tricky to block.
Every once in awhile these Thinkpad stories come up, and I generally read all of them. This is possibly the best comment I've read on the subject.
Someone at the top of the Thinkpad product division should read it.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think my Thinkpads look better than Macbooks. It's a matter of taste.
That they are also built like tanks is also nice.
