...that hosting a personal 'cloud' (email, file server, etc) on your personal internet connection leads to ending up on some list these days?
$1 scientific calculators with trig functionality. Tada.
Who said anything about ChromeOS? All new Chromebooks ship with SeaBIOS, & the older ones can be reflashed to have it. No signed kernels, no Google Anything. & we're talking the very same crowd that would buy a 'developer notebook'. Then again, something like this has modularity over, say a Chromebook Pixel (which has no modularity). Maybe something that could be purchased in bulk for dev-focused fleets ready to go out-of-the-box, but from what I understand there's bloatware....
Unless the person genuinely needs the processing power, the right chromebook purchase can lead to a much cheaper upgrade path to the same [non-graphics/cpu] specs.
Your industry is falling from under your feet. Buying paper makes just about as much sense an putting 2 quarters into a filth phlegm & piss covered phone in a cold plexiglass & metal booth. Take the fucking handout. TAKE THE HANDOUT.
I almost inadvertently duped your dupe post. True Story Braj.
Welcome to die!
My girlfriend has a new Prius C. She tried to convince her father not to get the one w/ the in-dash computer but they got it anyways, & here's just a little sample of what you get: You can't seek FM channels backwards. That's right. You passed your channel by accident? You better have bookmarked it because you're gonna have to do it all over again. You can't play FLAC files if you use your phone as a USB mass storage device so get ready to haul around an auxilliary audio cable. Bluetooth playback works but there's no real means to browse on the computer-- you'll have to do song selection on your phone & better hope you don't have to rewind. Oh yeah, you can't rewind. The maps application is supposedly able to pull Google Maps maps/traffic/fuel price data through your phone but who knows how long it'll be API compatible. You're also stuck w/ bluetooth bandwidth as (I've tested) internet tethering over USB doesn't work. I say tear it out & drop in an Android 4.x anything (tablet, phablet, proper in-dash computer, even a glorified phone mount), but, you know, resale value & all.
...in 1996/1997 on AOL. I recall, 5 years later, our excitement when we got MSN after AOL got stupid, the parental controls on it were totally broken & I saw all the vaginas I wanted from then on out.
While I agree apple needs to supply either a USB standard port or an inline adapter, it's true that lightning DOES have its own advantages. (reversability & clips not wearing down being a big one). I'd much rather see Apple join in on the next USB standard than to see the iphone 5-plus downgraded (I'm not even an iPhone user!). Besides, we all know it's going to wireless induction charging, right?
No one cares about your 2-bit phone attempt, no matter how good you think the UI is, to the extent that people would rather write monoliths in java or obj-c than deal with your shit.
Because simulated mechanical keyboard sounds is just...terrible. & I can't even figure out how to enter a URL on this UI.
I'd be more impressed if it SSH'd into a VM running lynx/links/elinks/etc.
Why not half of what an exploit like that could cost on the black market, because that's how much it'll cost to even begin to look like anyone will pay attention to their 'bug bounty program'.
Everyone knows photons were meant to be shot out of phasers, not for dueling with lasers.
