Better let Green Man Gaming and Gamersgate know, they regularly have VIP sales where you can get titles 25-55% off, oh those are both "legit" first-sale shops. So are places like Nuuvem.
I see your M-1 Tank and raise you asymmetrical warfare.
The out-gunned side takes more casualties but always wins in the end...
No joke, the US Army has plans for "if we have to invade Canada."
I'm eagerly awaiting the inclusion of WebKit in systemd.
Which is why I use a Nexus phone. It's the reference hardware. Even if you have the AT&T branded Nexus 6, it's unlockable and rootable, while on contract. I don't understand the point of buying a non-Google Android device.
I've looked at them, and I just never saw anything that made me think "that's clearly so much better and cheaper than the Google device that I should be reliant on the manufacturer and carrier to support it."
And testing for Android app development is a nightmare. "My new app works great in the emulator built into Android Studio! So I'm sure that means it'll work perfectly on 200 different devices all running different versions of customized OSes!"
So you're saying that The Man got wise to the tinfoil loophole, had it pulled from shelves, and replaced it with aluminum foil, and for those who didn't notice the difference their source of protection now makes them more susceptible to attack! The Man is truly diabolical.
And there's no "grown-up" alternative. Back in the day you didn't run Windows 95 - ME at the office. You used NT.
If they'd made a vanilla, office-friendly version of Windows 8 called "Windows 8 NT" or whatever else, that kept the same interface as 7, they might convince some corporate IT departments to upgrade. But when you've got a staff of 10,000 plus, and you're looking at rolling out a new OS with a completely different interface, at the minimum you're taking a huge productivity hit while people figure this new thing out, and at worst you're springing for new training.
I can only imagine how many billions of dollars in productivity were lost when they switched to the Ribbon in Office. It's as if millions of voices suddenly cried out "where's the edit menu?" and were suddenly confused...
Particularly when they're all the same thing, with no sense of order. At least Android goes up a letter each time, so you know "KitKat" comes before "Lollipop."
But OS X and the cats? Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, fucking Ocelot whatever. All that shit means is I have to go lookup the fucking 10.x number so I know if it'll run on my wife's computer.
Sir David Omand and the GCHQ happen to reside on the other side of the pond.
And you think that's going to stop them?! Just let them Redcoats come back and try that shit in Alabama and we'll kick their asses again, just like we did in dubya-dubya-tew.
Sssshhhh! Don't tell them we might actually like something they'd do, or they won't do it!
"Ohhhhh puuuuhleeeeeaze Brer Omand, whutevah you do, don't throw us in that targeted-spying-on-actual-terrorists-instead-of-everybody patch!"
It broke down at the end there, but you get the idea.
Now, boy, we can do this the easy way, or we can do this the hard way.
At least he's honest enough to call you a whore when he nuts in your face rather than whisper sweet nothings in your ear while he fucks you in the ass.
I really wanted to do the "boycott the reds and blues" thing last November. So I seriously looked at my alternative for my state governor. It was a libertarian who wanted to establish our own state currency backed by gold. Sigh.
Great, so now instead of Fucker vs Fucker it's Fuckers vs Nuts. Is there somebody worth electing, anywhere?
We don't need more "Think of the children!" witch hunts; our society has too many of those already.
Yeah, when did Anonymous turn into the lapdog of the FBI? Back when Anonymous had actual hackers (before they were busted by the FBI), they went after evil government and corporate shit (think Stratfor). Now....terrorists and pedos?
They've turned into Chester and Spike.
"Oh, oh, oh hey, hey FBI, wanna fight the establishment? Ehhh? Ehhh? Government corruption, FBI?! Eh eh?!"
"Oh, oh, yeah, yeah that wouldn't be no fun no fun...hey, hey FBI, wanna get pedos, FBI?! Ehhhh? Ehhh? Pedos?!"
