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'm in my mid 20s and I've taken 3 typing classes over the years. Never once was I ever told to use 2 spaces when typing on a computer for anything. Once space after a sentence unless you are on a typewriter.
How come your comment only has 1 space after each sentence if you "always put 2 spaces at the end of a sentence"?
Why does that matter? If they are buying Android because it has an awesome GUI... so what? They are still buying Android.
Who cares if they are buying it for being Linux? They are buying it because it is the superior product, which is all that matters. I'm a geek and I bought my Android phone because it was the best option. The "Hey my phone runs linux!" bit is an afterthought.
Depends where you go. I've gone to shops and asked to be allowed to use a PC with my Linux distro for an hour to make sure the hardware detects properly and whatnot. They took me to their back room and let me go to town (A tech supervised me to make sure I didn't steal anything).
It's worth noting that this was for my parents computer. I would never be silly enough to buy my personal machine at a store.
P.S - Checked that link in your sig. As an FYI, half the apps on your list are working for me under Wine on a x64 machine. It'll come, eventually.
+1. Completely agree. There isn't anything on the iPad I can't already do with another device. I never understood why people went apeshit for it other than the usual Apple Fanboys foaming at the mouth.
That's my bad! I didn't know they forced you to reconnect since I haven't used it for 30 days yet. Figures.
I agree, that is a poor decision on Blizzard's part. Once I authenticate once I should be free to play the game offline as much as I want. Its not the end of the world, but they are beginning to go down a slippery slope...
If you are so unhappy with your current salary, then quit and stop letting your boss milk you for money. Use your coding knowledge to make the coin for yourself.
If I coded something that made $100,000 a day while only getting paid $150,000 a year... well I'm sure any coder worth their salt can figure out that math....
You need to authenticate with Battle.net ONCE. After that, the game can be played offline as much as you want.
Asking to verify once is the same as having to enter a CD key. Network authentication is the CD key of the future. Get used to it.
Also as previously mentioned by others, Blizzard's network didn't collapse under strain. Me and my network of friends have been playing more or less constantly since release with no issues.
Blizzard's network didn't break under strain. I've played every day since release with no issues. If someone did have problems it was likely their own fault.
Swing and a miss. Tracking isn't required to display ads on a website. We had "free" sites long before we had user tracking on the web.
Agreed, 1000%. I swear by my Android phone, and I still laugh at all the losers still stuck in the walled garden of Apple. Enjoy being spoonfed lies and deceit folks! For the rest of us, there is Android.
Maybe after doing it for awhile they have realized its not the dream they thought it was. Not an uncommon occurrence in the world.
The article clearly shows that you have the option now to not use it. If they implement it as something you have to use (unlikely), how would they know you even have multiple accounts to force you into using this?
