Of Course Zuc wont appear in Iran, the CIA wont let the greatest target fed intel gathering effort in history go down so easy.
I think smartphones are really just grasping at straws now. Most people, including me, just want to text, talk and maybe do email or Facebook and take quick pictures once in a while. For the once advanced but now basic tasks that 99% of cell users do now, these devices are basically like using a flame thrower to light a cigar. I probably use about 1/5 the horsepower of my current HTC One and the thing sucks battery like a leech.
The next big thing in smart phones will probably be the $99-$250 phones that have a decent enough screen and just enough ram and CPU for text, talk, music, email and the occasional netflix. The Lumia 520 is an example of such a phone. Paying $500+ (retail unsubsidised) for a phone is stupid and wont last much longer.
so the beta is obviously just a ploy to cram more ads into our already way-over-exposed-to-ads eyeballs, but the ads you do show SUCK...I keep getting ads for a hotel that I looked at several hours ago for a business trip that is already booked now...and at home I get ads for stuff that I already bought on amazon...give me a break! how stupid is this targeting? and why do we need more of it again?
I have used dice to find many jobs, including the one I have right now, but I will not use Dice again if this beta isn't reversed.
Dice makes way more off of a placement than some silly adverts, if the technical professionals who read this site want to make a stand, kill your Dice profile - want to find a job? target your goal city and call head hunters, they will get you good jobs if you have a good skill.
The only ones using XP are businesses, and they are buying hardware as usual on the scheduled cycle, they are just wiping the drive and imaging XP when they get them...as they transition to 7 they will just be wiped and reloaded after a data backup - I automate this for a living, been there and done it 2 times since Win 7 came out.
As a casual gamer, the 360 will be my last console...I will not ask the mothership for permission to use a friends game, sell or buy a used game or whatever...
both platforms go way too far, I kinda enjoy games but I can live without them...
This is part of the reason why people are against global warming - when people mention reasons why they don't believe it, or ask real questions about it seeking clearer understanding, all we get is attacked, demeaned and insulted.
One of the things I do remember from high school science class is that when you don't understand something in science, you should ask hose saying it to clarify or explain their position, that is all I am going - I thought that was the scientific process, but apparently in the case of global warming, this doesn't apply because its easier to just insult those who dont clearly understand or would like details.
Investigated by whom? people who stand to profit from climate change and / or the laws or restrictions that it brings about?
I have always had an honest question about the data on global warming that no one can seem to answer so I will try here...
It seems that the past 5 decades or so of accurate satellite and temp data is way to small of a sample. It would be like looking at my speedometer while on the freeway on ramp and extrapolating that 45 minutes down the road I will be going 25,000 MPH not accounting for the fact that I will stop accelerating and maybe even break in that time...How can we know with precision about Earths climate 300 years ago, much less 3,000 or 3,000,000 years ago
I was 100% on board with global warming until the email leaks of a couple years ago - it seems like someone is not shooting straight here...I am not a scientist but I can tell you I now have some doubts about the validity of the climate science.
On a good note, Dice.com just sent me an email that there is a really nice sys admin job opening in Hawaii...
Come on, he is just gonna out himself and become target number 1 for the US government? I seriously doubt it...this is a plant.
I would assume that the real source has much more than just that one PPT deck...come on, if you have that you must have more...
saw that and I think the issue is that the sudden humidity change caused condensation, not terribly uncommon if prompt action isnt taken upon AC failure in a humid climate...I don't see a "Cloud in the room"
Hype to sell newspapers...and link bait...
I dont se any pics in the linked article, Someone has to have pictures of this if it happened...
Windows is a great platform for development - Nothing really compares to Visual Studio+TFS+MSDN for business dev
Windows is manageable - You can do it by hand with batch scripts run on work group PCs via remote PowerShel sessions for real small shops,and scale into use of AD as you grow, and further manage all aspects with tools like System Center and Intune. Nothing else offers this level of control,
Windows is pretty bullet proof...I know in a controlled datacenter environment Linux is rock solid, but my only use of linux is on my Roku and Nexus 7 - both have crashed 2 times in the last week - I have had 0 BSODs in Windows 7 or 8 since 2009, including use of pre release code on both versions. I know that is antidotal but hey, I know what I see and I haven't had a windows system crash that was not caused by hardware failure in many many years.
