I'm not sure I follow - how is that scenario different from using a checksum to verify you've downloaded the correct piece of software? Some copies will be bad, and some people will be able to tell. Others could be indistinguishable from the original.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Bit of a contradictrion here:
For software, generally speaking the copy is exactly the same as the original. No one collects software (only their medium), and its unlimited.
So being able to tell the originals from the copies apart kind of matters this time around.
If you can't tell the originals from the copies, wouldn't we be in the same situation as with software?
Wow, so Finland rocks, apparently. The largest packages you can get here in Germany are 15-20€ per month for 5 gigs, and they limit you to GPRS speeds (64kbps!) when you hit that limit. And you usually can't pay for additional data, you really have to wait until the next month (unless you're on an expensive carrier such as Vodafone, but there you'll usually be paying more than 20€).
Is Garfield the one in the Amazing Spiderman? Then yeah, agree wholeheartedly. The Tobey Maguire films were pretty awful
Isn't HWA off by default?
Oh God, why? This is the first thing I turn off on new TVs
Hahaha, every time someone posts with, "I had problem X in distro Y", someone else posts, "that's a problem with distro Y, try distro Z!"
And you wonder why people just fuck off back to Windows after the first few snags...
Are you me? Your experience with Linux sounds like mine back in the day.
For the last few years, I've only run Linux in VMs (on Windows hosts), and it runs pretty much perfectly and does everything I ask it to. Standard "hardware", I guess...
They still do this if you're on a GSM network.
What were the symptoms? I've been thinking about getting a N7 2013 for the nightstand...
Closest I've come is the above... basically, use an automated app with root privileges to add the main ad-servers to your hosts file.
Other than that, you're pretty much fucked.
FUCK THIS TFUCK THIS FUCK THIS. Firefox doesn't even show me which fucking tab is playing it. FUCK OFF Autoplay.
Is the Exchange client on Android possibly horrid? I've only used the regular stock IMAP client, but that was never very good, lagging behind the GMail app severely in terms of both features and polish. Maybe Android is the main reason?
Also, I'm sure Microsoft would prefer their branding on any Exchange clients, just to stay in the execs' heads every time they check their e-mail... it's built in retroactive marketing that keeps their clients locked in.
On a more serious note: Just use Chrome for all things Flash. I use Firefox for everything else, but when I need Flash, I fire up Chrome...
Well, I bought a phone directly from Google about two years ago - a Galaxy Nexus - and that's now stuck on 4.3, including this lovely WebView bug.
