I've opened it up for cleaning once or twice. No issues... instructions found online were pretty easy to follow.
I was going to say the IBM Thinkpads, too. Like any computer, they eventually get old and underpowered compared to the new stuff, but they keep chugging. Mine is from 05, I think right after Lenovo bought 'em, but it's still the IBM version. One key is missing, case is cracked and there are a few grey pixels, but it still works (typing this on it now). Made it through deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, too.
Is that "long lasting" or is it sad that 9-10 years out of a laptop is considered long?
First, why would you have an ex as a friend on FB, still? Second, why would YOU choose to share your location with them?
Put aside the hate for a second and realise this is done right... or at least closer to right. It's opt-in, which solves the first problem most people have. Second, you specifically choose who you want to share with. It's not everyone by default. Yes, yes... you have to tell FB where you're at first. If you have a problem with that, you're probably not on FB, anyhow, so who cares?
I could see this being useful with the group of work friends I have. We all have families, so our plans are usually with them first. If we decided to go downtown, it'd be nice to see if someone else decided to do down, also. Our commissary/store is an hour away and everyone usually makes a trip down there every other weekend or so. Sometimes you run into them, sometimes you don't. Again, it'd be cool to get a little notice that someone is down there at the same time so we can bullshit in the foodcourt while the wives shop.
IIRC, there was a special $40 upgrade from Win7 when Win8 first came out. $35, $40, something like that. I upgraded one of my laptops since it was so cheap.
This. Cook with what's good to drink. Same goes for wine, I hear, but I don't really drink it that much.
I use Westvleteren when cooking, which should annoy any beer snobs out there.
I don't believe that you can make an honest assessment because you believe every single statement from Facebook to be a bold faced lie.
Do you really believe the only way Facebook can make money from this is to turn it into a Facebook device?
What users should Facebook listen to for new features? Majority rules? Who defines the majority? People birching about change always seem more prevalent than those who just roll with it.
Also, the only damage I can see Facebook potentially doing is locking the software distribution channel for the Oculus into an Apple app-store like model. If this thing caught on, there'd be a Facebook app, social apps, ad-supported apps, in-app purchases, etc. regardless. I don't know exactly how those would fit into this VR interface, but you know someone would try.
So you logically conclude (assume) that every single GG user is doing this and the concept should be abandoned? It's never just going to be a dude wearing a computer/phone/whatever this thing is?
But that's just paranoia right?
Definition of. You know... maybe it's just a dude with a wearable phone on his face. Or at least rail against every single piece of technology, so you can be consistent in your paranoia.
Now you must also have YOUR computer in order to access anything, rather than just any Internet connected computer. It just really depends on how you work. A dropbox folder was the perfect solution for me when I was in school.
So you want more government involvement, by creating yet another solution that'll have no applicability after school?
How is Google violating my kid's privacy by providing Google Doc/Drive so he can write his Rosa Parks essay?
There's a conspiracy to generate conspiracies around every action so that in the end, no one knows what to believe.
Not triangulate. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T...
Or some people just like it and learn how to use it. No script necessary.
I'll agree that there always room for improvement, though.
