You can buy and sell stuff for gold etc, and buy a real estate plot anywhere that's not taken already and build a base from raw materials to hide your valuables in or battle from like a fort. Vehicles are own-able and lockable etc. It is amazeballs.
Also, that may be the slowest interactive map I've ever used on the Internet. Our tax dollars at work, creating sub-par web experiences every day.
I have returned a crapload of the older ones that had the good 5-year warranty, and every single one that has been sent back as a replacement was labeled as a refurbished drive.
If you wanted any of those Windows-only business applications you could always just run XP or 7 in a virtual machine. Parallels is fast due to hardware acceleration but it costs money, and VirtualBox is free but not quite as fast. I know of a CEO who uses a MacBookPro exclusively, where all of the business software is Windows-only and he uses ether Parallels or Boot Camp for the odd occasion when he wants to delve into the workers' business output.
I want to have a second computer inside my computer to do all the maintenance and shit that I don't want to do.
So basically another processor core?
No a separate fully-functional system that works regardless of the state of the main rig, like the article's SD-card-case-sized system, that could easily fit inside any desktop computer or regular laptop case.
I want to have a second computer inside my computer to do all the maintenance and shit that I don't want to do. Let the microcomputer be wired in to the PCI-Express bus with a bidirectional link and trusted association to access the files and the hardware sensors... it can do virus scans and monitor things, maybe even repair things if the main system goes down... etc
Yet Chicago has been banning the legal sale to lawful owners of handguns for a long time. Gun Control fails. Criminals Murder.
2 or 3 decades later after continuous gun ownership I still haven't shot any people or had any firearms accidents resulting in human injury. Additionally I retain the ability to secure meat for food and the ability to defend my home and family against malicious intruders.
Plus the TV industry is far away from upgrading their equipment to produce the content.
Also, Internet pricing and availability sucks in America, yes.
Big nerd with big balls, Snowden.
