The buyer usually has quite a bit of say in how things play out...
I seen ton of expensive stuff sold, and you can bet the ink has dried on the contracts before any requested change was made to the item that would possibly decrease the value to another seller. If I'm selling my house sure I'm gonna clean it up, put on a new coat of paint, and pressure wash the siding.... but if you tell me I have to rip out the in-ground pool and put in a tennis court before you will buy it you can bet I'm gonna get a signed contract and the money in escrow before I even cancel the pool cleaning service.
Phase II E911 rules require wireless service providers to: * within six minutes of a valid request by a PSAP, provide more precise location information to PSAPs; specifically, the latitude and longitude of the caller. This information must be accurate to within 50 to 300 meters depending on the type of technology used.
If your willing to bet your life on 6 minutes and 1000 feet that's fine, but I rather not. Sorry, what's that, you use a GPS based system and your in a heavily constructed bank or office building? I guess you can try and hit the bad guys on the head with your phone... though the old "brick" phones where much better at that.
Why cater to the customers needs in the first place? Just screw them as much as you can.
If you're a hooker those two are one and the same. I'm just sayin'
Actually wouldn't a hooker want to screw the customer as LITTLE as possible?
Didn't we just blast Toyota for having a completely closed system, that only 1 laptop in the US could access.... but now we blast everyone else for having an open system because it can be hacked?
Given physical access to any system it can be hacked.
Here is the missing links:
You must work in a big corporation, small businesses often don't have common hardware, so imaging and sysprep for each individual PC is not going to be faster then using a floppy.
The Floppy isn't going to die until WinXP is no longer the most installed OS in business environments, and Server 2003 is no longer used.
It is still the only supported method to inject drivers into the install process, and many SATA and RAID controllers do not have native drivers on the CD because the OS is so old.
Once XP & 2003 is gone the floppy will go with it.
Actually I had the exact same problem a few months ago upgrading a Dell server from Win2003 x86 to Win2008 x64, I suspected the CPU from the beginning, but I spent a few hours before the Dell Tech agreed with me. They sent a replacement and it worked like a champ.
This proves it has happened to a production Intel Core2Duo CPU at least once, I can't believe I was the only one.
Do such platforms exist? Is there a smartphone that allows you to download and install random staff from the Internet as a PC does? Or are all of them basically just mobile storefronts to the manufacturer's shop?
The blackberry platform is still open to installing any applications you want, or ones you build yourself. They have an App store, but it is optional and many apps are downloaded direct from the developer still.
