And who is to blame for that? nVidia could release specs and work with the OSS community.
For what it's worth
I vaguely recall that ocean air is fairly corrosive to electronics. Would they really use iMacs in a situation where they'd possibly have to be replaced frequently and possibly fail at sea? I realize the buyer will have lots of money, but it seems foolish.
Are you disappointed in the direct Apple has taken over the last few years with a closed ecosystem, mild lock-in, and suing competitors? Can you comment on what you might have done differently if you had been the CEO? Where do you see Apple focusing in the future?
If you could tell 1984 Woz something, what would it be?
The article doesn't say they're definitely implementing tiered pricing for everyone, they're trying it in a few markets.. In markets where tiered pricing is not being trialed, the caps are completely removed.
Was one of the mice named Jonathan Brisby?
Roughly how much is a two hour movie in terms of MB/GB? Is it really a concern of someone using a Sony/Netflix service that watching a movie per day would put them over the limit?
How is this fragmentation? It's just more choice. Gnome2 is dead as far as gnome.org is concerned. Don't like it? Don't use it.
I went to Memphis for Blues and the food, and decided to go over to Sun Studios (Stax Records is also in town and pretty interesting as well). They have a fair amount of memorabilia and they tell you a lot of interesting facts, though if you're a huge fan of that music, you probably already know those facts. If you're stuck in Memphis for 24hrs, it's not near Beale St, but it's close enough, and worth the effort.
I'd wondered before if something like the windbelt (http://hardware.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/09/11/2257228) would work in a small stream or river. You would have the same constant flow over the belt, and I'd guess it would create the same oscillations (though probably not as much). I'm not an engineer, just curious.
The blocking, which is performed by crippling DNS, has been criticized, especially since lapsiporno.info ("childporn.info"), a site discussing the practice, but not containing any illegal material, was added to the list of blocked sites, despite the fact that only sites hosted outside of Finland are allowed to be blocked (Real child porn sites hosted inside Finland are to be shut down and the maintainers prosecuted).
Quite a lot of other sites that have nothing whatsoever to do with "child pornography" are also on the list, and critics of the practice of crippling DNS say that it's only a matter of time before other inconvenient or controversial material will be censored, too. This article on Electronic Frontier Finland's site is the most adequate summary of the situation available in English."
