This puts us one step closer to the long sought after write only drive.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
You mean they copied Apple?
Huh. First time for everything.
(1) Insert DVD in appropriate drive (no, the other one).
(2) If this is an upgrade edition, make sure you have an official upgrade license with Abraham Lincoln's original signature.
(3) Follow instructions on screen. If there is no screen, contact your hardware vendor.
(4) Don't call us, we'll call you.
(5) Send more money.

Actually that will be great! We can finally get rid of those parentheses we put around the area code.
I don't think it really counts until they can also build the computer that calculates the solution out of legos.
This company is so laid back about "the future of their products" I think they must have industrial strength bongs stationed next to the air handlers.

The failure of government is meant to convince us that we need to spend more money on government so they can do better testing to convince us we need to spend more money on government.
But don't. It ain't worth it.
Knowing nothing firsthand about this myself but with my "common sense" I have to ask:
If a particular module were full of smoke and other noxious materials why wouldn't it be possible to seal off that model and then vent its entire atmosphere into space? At that point there would be nothing "airborne" left in that module. Then you would re-pressurize it.
That to me would seem to be more certain than any form of filtering. Of course somewhere in there you would have to make absolutely sure that the source of the noxious materials was eliminated too.
How about a malware writer moding your host file so that when the Adobe warez phones home it gets something quite different?
I know we think of computer users as dumb. But must we have our "trusted vendors" also assume that all users are too dumb to trust with a decision about when and where you want to get your software from?
It's not like Microsoft and Adobe have sterling records for keeping our system secure or anything.
Windows doesn't use batteries, people do.
Just shut down those Windows laptops and leave 'em that way. Problem solved.
