Offsite is the way to go. I do this with my family photos and important docs. I keep a drive locked away in my desk at work and one at my parents' place. Documents are encrypted and password protected. I've got a 3rd drive that I use and swap out as an update a couple of times a year and rotate. The drives are not plugged into anything so there's no chance of getting hacked. So unless there's a nuclear bomb that takes out the entire city, my important data is safe.
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).
Apple is owned by its shareholders, not Tim Cook. If Tim Cook was to withdraw from all those countries for his personal beliefs, no matter what they are, he would be deposed by the shareholders and sued to high heaven. He can speak out all he wants (and he should) but he ultimately answers to his shareholders.
Why did they just not make it a USB device from the getgo instead of a proprietary adapter for the Xbox One? Oh yeah... money.
Better prepare for Cisco routers crashes (and everything else using non shielded, non ECC RAM)
Heck, 95% of the MMORPG market, a good percentage of fantasy video games.
Must not live in Ontario, Canada, where 90% of the electricity bill is distribution fees, taxes, debt retirement and other fees which are pretty static. Only 10% is actual usage cost.
Oh I agree 100% with you. The OP asked if something like this existed and I was just pointing out that it did.
If you really must go the route of keeping the Chromebook, I would suggest the Canon MX 3/4 in one printers. I myself have an MX870 model (printer/fax/copier/scanner), it's WIFI, and it has a USB port, an SD port, a compact flash port and an MS Duo port. From a USB stick I've printed PDFs, DOCs, text files, jpegs without a problem. I've also printed jpegs right off an SD card. It also works in the other direction; I've scanned some docs/images and saved them directly onto a USB stick.
You mean like Mythbusters cooked an entire Thanksgiving meal using nothing but an engine on a roadtrip?
I'm guessing that even though you have static IPs Comcast has tagged the
I was dialing up to Freenets back in 1988, paying for 'privileged' access (though they were non-profit) and was using email, archie, gopher, IRC, etc... Wouldn't this be considered an ISP?
I'm cautiously optimistic about this news. I'm just a casual game. I suspect that the vault will contain games that are 8-10 months old or older and have negligible sales. I don't mind paying 30$ a year to play older games. What this will do is eat into the secondary used game market (Gamestop, EB Games, Future Shop, etc..) as it will be cheaper to rent these older games than to buy even one used game, putting money in EAs pockets instead of these types of stores.
This being EA however, I wouldn't be surprised to see something like online multiplayer being a paid for DLC or something crazy like that, but time will tell.
The fine print also states that they can drop games from the vault at any time, so you can be SOL if you're in the middle of completing a game and that game is pulled. And the fine print also makes it very clear that this is a rental service. Stop paying for your sub and you lose access to the games that you downloaded.
Go to any store that sells cards, you'll likely find an Xbox Live card (not the sub, but money, like an iTunes card). Log in (either via console or Xbox Live website), redeem card. Use those credits to pay for the sub. Problem solved!
