And so it begins....
At current trents.....bla, bla, bla. I think we all agree, that if we base it on current population growth and the current mindest of "just build more and bigger power stations" then the opitons are limited Whats overlooked in alomost every one of these "studies" funded by power companies is the decentralisation of power. Each household and business has the ability to conserve their power (insulation, efficent heating, etc), plus generate their own power (using solar, wind - where possible, regenative power). This model will remove the need for bigger and more power stations. The main issue with this model isnt changing peoples minds; its that under this decentralised model power companies would reduce or lose their profits. So the current model remains
Almost every gamer I know couldnt care less what o/s they are using as long as their games and "game related" programs run properly (Teamspeak, etc). They use Windows cause there is no other viable option now. With SteamOS all this would change. They would most likely prefer to run Linux and spend the money saved on more games. Bring it on!!
Surely this (and all the other NSA spying) must have broken international law? Its there anything happening at that level (or is it occuring and our media isnt keeping us informed)?
Whats happeing now makes people in the industry uncomforable, at the least. Whats a real worry is what the future will be like. If it continues down the current path Democracy as we know it will be dead. Then welcome to a new model of socialism.
Internet costs in Australia. Its not uncommon to pay around $70/month for ADSL 1 speeds (1.5Mbps).
Adobe appear to be so focused on pushing their "money making" business model (the no-one wants) they forget to secure their backend systems. I wonder what incentives the NSA give them to pipe the users details into PRISM?
How many actual "terrorists" have been caught using this technology?
As this form of "monitoring" has yeild no results in capturing actual "terrorists" then why is it still being funded?
Here in Australia the Minister for science role has been scraped, effectively removing scientific opinion from the decision making process.
The 5S is aimed at the corporate and tech head market. The 5C is aimed at the "teens" and lower end market. Its long term strategy too, these phones will probe still being sold new in 2 years time like the 4S still is. So they need devices that teens will still want in 2 years (how about a new range of colours?) As for canibalising: its competing with itself - sometimes a good thing. Consumers think they have a choice, the 5C or the 5S. They will fail to realise that there are plenty of other options out there too, Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Sony, etc.
Why all the fear around the fingerprint reader? Geez, the phone will simply take a pic of the users face with the front facing camera and send it off to the NSA with the persons details, wifi passwords, etc.
II wonder how many illegal songs a 9yr old Russian kids has to download until they are extradited?
Spend the extra 10 cents and use materials for packaging that don’t cause this problem (like biodegradable materials). The manufacturer needs to step up to the plate and only offer these matrials just as the consumer must step up to the plate and only buy the same.
Why is a system like this in place? Clearly its not the stop crime as crime rates dont reflect any noticable benefit, they have mostly remained constant for years (per capita). I would like to see what benefits this has brought to any country, basically justfying such a program.
America is "broken" and the rest of the world seems to clawing over itself to follow suit (with a few minor exceptions). Its depressing reading about the path our children "must" follow.
