Hell, remember that Apple didn't originally allow native apps on the iPhone. SO they've done it to themselves before.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Remove tax exemptions from all of them. They get the same benefits from government as any other organization does.
Also, it would take the government out of the business of deciding what is and what isn't a "real" religion, and of course keep organizations from pretending to be religions as part of a tax scam.
Now, how are we going to calculate how much the music industry and artists owe radio for all the decades of free marketing and hit-manufacturing?
On Slashdot they got 80% accuracy just by identifying all users as trolls.
We're trying to modernize acre-feet to Manhattan-fathoms, but the traditionalists won't have anything to do with it.
I thought Copenhagen Suborbitals was a brand of pot.
Its particularly bad in Korean, where the words tend to alternate consonant-vowel-consonant with the consonants on the left and vowels on the right. It just ends up being an exponential explosion of possibilities without much branch pruning. Its also harder in agglutative languages than non-agglutatives, because you can't have a simple dictionary of all words.
But in the end it doesn't matter. If you actually use a keyboard, 2 features are must haves- the first is that you need to be able to type the occasional word. The second is that you need to know where the keys are, so you can type-swype efficiently. That precludes a new keyboard layout, as you know more or less where every key on a qwerty is- you don't on an "optimized" layout and you'll take months to learn. An alternate keyboard doesn't have that much time, it has a few hours max to get you to love it.
Disclaimer: I worked at Swype from 2010-2012.
Flow is Swiftkey's knock off of Swype. It probably has some differences in the algorithm that will make it better for some words and worse for others, but its just a knock off.
Nice, thanks for the info. Nvidia would be nice, as I want to run blender. Is there a good comparison site for various laptops with high-end graphics and CPUs you know of? I've been poking around online for a while, but determining what the best supported higher-end laptops are for Linux is far from easy.
If Apple's recent stream of security failures has not convinced you to switch to Linux or BSD, you are basically hopeless.
Oh, I've been running Linux for years and years. I was going to dual-boot an apple laptop with osx+linux, but now I have no interest in having osx any more than I do windows. I'll take a look at the new dell.
My Grandmother (she is 85) has an Intel based Core Duo Macbook and Apple has stopped providing security updates [...] When we bought the machine (new) I thought the macbook would be more usable for her than a Linux laptop. While it has been a good machine, being orphaned on security updates is bad form by Apple.
It's not too late:
We are talking apple users here, not Linux users. All three Apple users who know these steps have probably already done so. The other several hundred million are fucked, and Apple has now publicly taken a stance that they plan to hang those millions out to dry.
Ironically, I was going to buy an apple laptop for sheer convenience (and to run more recent versions of scrivener), but now I most certainly won't. Time to research good Linux laptop alternatives instead (ideally with high-end graphics capabilities that support blender's cycles module
The whole thing has been turned into a gigantic cream-skimming operation.
It skews highly towards the websites users. Hardly surprising. But when you consider that googling almost any programming question will lead to an answer on SO in the top 3 or 4 hits, I'm not sure how you can avoid visiting the site at least once a day on average.
You have to hit it once. That deletes the entire tab. Unless you have your editor set to do something weird, like turn tabs into spaces.
