Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I did a test with a tool in one of the links and got the same results as other people.
See how the graph goes down as age of files increases.
After running the tool to update the firmware and "optimize" the drive the graph is very different.
Now i have to check again in a couple of months. I could run a full defrag and get the same result since all files would've been moved.
They also have to call you back if you get cut off, you can request and get the recordings using the internet, special packages must apply to new and old costumers etc.
Why would you go to a store, get a boleto, go to the bank to pay it, get back to the store with the paid boleto and take your goods?
That means you have means to pay the good right there, be it cash or debit/credit. So you just pay it right there at the store.
The store could issue a boleto in the other case i described, where they let you pay a fraction of the total price each month for some % each month.
Boletos come in the mail so you can pay most of your bills here, we call those boletos too. Utilities, cable, internet, credit card, any kind of insurance etc. They all can send you boletos to pay online or at your bank. Its common for old people to take a bunch of them to the bank on payday and ask the teller to pay them all. Me? I do it all online. My phone can scan the barcode with its camera, so its really easy to pay the bills.
Boleto is a thing in Brazil because a lot of people get paid in cash. A lot of people don't have bank accounts or credit cards. "Informal workers" are still a big part of the working force in Brazil even in this days.

Also, the most important information that the story doesn't say. The system will work together with international partners (FCC etc), so it doesn't matter where it was certified, it will work here. Source: http://idgnow.com.br/blog/circ...
Nothing new here.
Had the same experience in mexico a dozen years ago.
Red light or green light.
But back then, there was a guy standing on a switch could just flex his knee to make additional selections if you looks particularly shady.
We had (still have?) this in Brazil. But i think it was only in the customs area, not really for security screening.
