I don't go to the movies anymore. Last few times I've gone I've wished I was back home before the 25-30 minutes of ads were done. It costs around $20 to buy a movie ticket here, so I don't see why they need to waste my time with these ads. If they can't afford to show the movies without the ads, then maybe they should just stop having cinemas. I'm perfectly happy watching movies from the comfort of my home, using whatever streaming service is all the rage. I'll microwave some popcorn and spread it out all over the sofa and pour soda under my feet for that authentic cinema feel. Maybe even invite a really tall friend over to sit in front of me and partially block out the screen.
but it can definitely find milk, right? Guys? Right?
I think that's smashing news. Microsoft branded hardware with Microsoft software, and on top of all that you get Dell quality service. What an age we live in. Now excuse me, I have to go turn the gas on so it's ready for dinner in 4 hours.
Ahh, is that the switch and cable combo Ubisoft is using for Uplay? So it's all really Cisco's fault then!
Users didn't start blocking ads because of some unreasonable hatered towards good deals on stuff and services. Users started blocking ads because of bad ad practices. I don't want to search through 10 tabs looking for that one dickhead page that's playing audio half way down a mile long article. I don't want to search for an X and cross my fingers that I'm not getting hijacked, simply because my cursor ventured away from the content area of the website. I really really really don't want to take your survey about how well your website works 1½ seconds after loading the page. I don't want blinking banners telling me I've won some imaginary prize.
Bad ad practices have gotten so out of hand that I would claim it's down right a security risk for the average user not to run some sort of ad/flash blocker. My pensioned mother has installed trojans in the belief that she's actually getting a real security warning that her computer is infected, because of fraudulent ads served on regular websites. If the people that manage those ad networks don't give a damn what they're serving, I don't give a damn about what they want to sell me.
I unblock on a pr. page basis. I do believe the content creators I follow, on for example youtube, deserve some money for their efforts, so I sit through some of their video ads. Slashdot ads I've simply forgotten to unblock, because they're so unintrusive that I forget they're there (will unblock after submitting this). Random faceless media can however kiss my ass. If I don't trust them, if I can't trust them and if I don't have any emotional/personal connection to them, they don't deserve the income I can generate for them.
I presume they just didn't connect the network cable.
For many years I've had some sort of Linux distro, either on a seperate machine or as a dualboot. I'm used to those breaking all the time. Lately Linux has been very stable, and I can do pretty much all my productivity on Linux, so I don't mind so much if I have a Windows partition that has to be repaired/reinstalled once in a while.
Stop ruining my life!
I've only ever used voice mail when incredibly drunk. I actually think phones should have a needle to perform blood tests, so that once your blood alcohol levels are too high, you can only call taxi services and pizza places.
Is the conduit bing browser hijack also considered malware? Cause it bloody well should.
Microsoft says pen and paper isn't fair for students, and at the same time they're trying to push electronic devices that have pen input. So instead of actually innovating and creating a better solution, they've made the paper run on batteries. Problem solved?
I've got like 5-6 keys, including a couple I don't know what are for. And I have a knife with a 2 cm blade which comes in handy if I have to cut open a box or letter. The only other things I carry around are my wallet with cash, cards and ID, my phone and a can of snus.
In a couple of generations, smartwatches will come with 7" displays anyway.
It's pretty damn funny running through an airport terminal yelling "bomb" too. Maybe he should try that next time... for science.
