People will always do stupid things. Some, more than others. I think leaving it up the customer is a good choice, because it doesn't prevent immediate usage. Yes, you need to take responsibility and get the battery replaced. But, you can continue to function in the short term. Ultimately, if the battery is sending a trouble signal it can be interpreted at any step in the chain. The battery manufacturer could put a kill switch in. The hardware manufacturer using the battery could put a kill switch in. The software vendor can put in code to shutdown when the trouble state is detected.
Attempts to stop dendrite formation have met with limited success
It sounds to me like they've been trying to do just that. This sounds like it's meant to be a stop-gap solution.
Perfect doesn't mean best choice available. There are plenty of unaccomodating issues with the planet.
I used my office as an extreme. One that I knew the bounds of. Sure, I support thousands of people as well at work. Lots of them user iPads or android tablets. I don't have numbers for them. But, a lot of the ones I actually talk to... prefer it over their computer. It's people like you that actually make it worse. You intentionally recommend people buy inferior products, worsening their opinion of the form factor as a whole. Also, making fun of people tends to piss people off regardless of whether you're right or not. Tablets aren't for everyone, not everyone needs one. Tablets also don't need to be purchased every year. So yes, sales should decline with market saturation. It should, however, stabilize at a level that covers a normal upgrade cycle.
I explain it as what people want and need aren't always the same. People want the big UI change. They want to see the new thing that'll make life easier. And then they'll get frustrated and want it back the way it was.
Because your anecdotal evidence shows how everyone experience is. Out of an office of 11 employees, 8 have tablets. 7 of us use them regularly. The 8th person is waiting for the next Nexus tablet as his old one's usb port isn't working correctly and won't reliably charge. Personally I think we might be an above average sample, but I somehow think you might be a below average sample.
... You're not likely to run into bandwidth issues OR issues with a download cap, in regards to local network storage.
Or, according to
/. earlier today. The people approving the patents are actually doing whatever the fuck else they want, instead of their job, and getting paid for it.
Storage capacity is where streaming comes in handy. Not just online streaming, but NAS and the like.
That they're superior to their PC brethren.
Oh, but the Sun will run out of fuel eventually!
The article says they're scanning against hashes of known child porn. They're not determining if a random image contains child porn, just if it matches against known hashes.
It's not an issue unique to google. It's there for any of the email providers. I randomly get email for other people in my hotmail and yahoo accounts. The issue is that people make mistakes, or are just mistaken about their email account. Now, that could still potentially leave you on the hook if someone starts sending you crap. At that point you just have to hope to be able to prove that.
They're using automated software to scan against hashes of known child porn. They're not just up and viewing peoples email here. Child porn is a serious enough problem, and there is no legal reason for you to have child porn. The situation would be different if the legality of the files themselves would be questionable.
Ok, so I had to verify. He does in fact fall while riding. However, he did jump off the first couple times.
