a coach on a sports team
... a boss at a job ... the chief of police to the officers. How dare someone be in charge of a situation. Are they advocating anarchy?
And how much battery life does the LCD screen rob? I bet OSX robs the battery of quite a bit of life, too. In fact, the entire laptop is a savage murderer of battery life!
T-Mobile just let me know not go to them for service, because their infrastructure is so weak and insecure that they fear IM apps. I want a phone service provider that knows how to build, manage, and run a reliable data network. T-Mobile does not appear to be that provider.
There's a Slashdot article! "Science debunked because Anonymous Coward on Slashdot says so!"
It's not 10/10/10, it's 10/10/2010. We fixed that bug over a decade ago.
I'm more concerned that a number greater than 0 of nuclear missiles can simultaneously and inexplicably malfunction more than I am of an extra-terrestrial probing me. We have weapons that can obliterate an entire city
... and they can mysteriously malfunction? You'd think they'd work out the bugs BEFORE creating enough arsenal to destroy the entire habitability of our planet. I'm not a perfect coder, but I can say with all honesty that my code isn't putting billions of lives at risk.
There are "Citizen Arrest" statutes. It's not the bosses permission police officer's have to enter someone's home, it's a court signed warrant, and if you can get a court of law to give you rightful access to a property, then you can enter someone's home without their permission. (Good luck with that, though) Though you can enter someone's property in case of an emergency, i.e. saving a baby from a burning building, just as the cops can. And you have the right to protect yourself and your property, so you can taze people who get unruly and present a reasonable danger to your own personal safety.
Because people don't have to bother writing a virus to get access to Apple's products. Apple's programmers are more than good enough and leaving them backdoors all over the place. That's why it's not like PCs
... just like everything else at Apple, it's easier!
I went to a college prep high school and we had no "D"s. A (92-100%), B (84-91%), C (75-83%), F (0-74%). The logic behind our school's system was that since we were a school for gifted kids, if you weren't at least average, you failed.
Company realizes it needs to think about the future and plan for it. News at 11.
In the summary it says: "Being a municipality, we are entitled to free expanded basic cable as a part of the franchise agreement back in 1982." Ditching basic cable will save the tax payers a whopping $0. Comcast signed a deal
... their town granted Comcast a monopoly on cable infrastructure, in return for free service.
Now, it looks like the municipality is learning the joys of monopolies. They don't like Comcast's new policies, yet their own policies prevent competition from stepping in and offering them a solution. Now, they have to come to Slashdot for help.
Because the system will be decentralized. You can control your own seed, meaning your own data, and who it gets shared with. They aren't making a Facebook clone. Actually, there will be Facebook interaction, so you can host your own profile and connect with Facebook users
... it's listed in their timeline if you actually read their update.
But you aren't paying for the content, just the access to those channels. The cable bill pays for the wire in your house to the cable company. The ads on TV are from those networks themselves. With Hulu, I'm paying $10 to the networks themselves, not a middleman, since Hulu is owned by the networks.
When I can get a free estimate from an auto mechanic, but have to pay a specialist just to ask me 10 questions and take my pulse & blood pressure (which I can do for free at most super markets)
... I'm going to Google my symptoms first so see if I can save $100+ from a doctor just telling me "take some aspirin and drink plenty of water."
If doctors are so concerned, maybe they should offer preliminary screening services at a competitive price as Google ... free.
"B&W, low contrast, 1 second refresh. Let's just say I wouldn't buy stock in E-Ink." Because technology never improves and always remains exactly the same as its initial consumer level implementation? I guess people who didn't buy stock in PC companies because they had 320x200 B&W text-only displays are sitting smugly now because they didn't waste their money on that worthless PC market.
