Yep, that's what almost every library does, and for that very reason.
That's true, many are not good with technology. But they don't have to be. Their tech services departments push out certain systems that they use. Most libraries don't maintain client records, for instance, because of this. Actually really annoying from a usability standpoint, but good from a privacy one.
They reached a settlement agreement. BB did not defeat Typo "in court."
How is this a surprise announcement? We knew Apple only had it as an exclusive for a few weeks.
I'm not sure I understand how this is different from any phone. An iOS define would be bricked, too, and plenty of them are out there running modern apps as well.
The Nexus is the biggest example of this problem... it isn't getting updates when they are released either, and there's no excuse of other manufacturers to ameliorate the problem.
I'm not even sure what this is supposed to mean, or what your point is? What does the fact that Apple pushed a U2 album have to do with anything? What does the fact that updates take space have to do with anything? Heck, beyond that, updates don't take space if you do them while connected to iTunes. So I really don't get what your point is in all this?
I agree with that, if that's the reason. But the reason can't be "because there's no possibility of evidence" on it. Now, the article is a little different than the headline, I'm just being clear.
That seems like a weird decision... I mean, even if the drive itself has failed it doesn't mean the platters have no data on them that could be recovered. Of course, the secondary question is whether the destruction was intentional or not, but as for the question at issue here, I don't see how a court could say that there is no evidence that was destroyed. The likelihood is completely opposite.
They charge more for BD, so why wouldn't they charge more for 4K? It's a good opportunity for them to be able to raise fees.
That's the point though... this really isn't a push for open formats. We could scour the web looking for mentions in a lot of places. Until it's actually close to a policy it means absolutely nothing.
Ooh look, a MEP said something! I think we should have a front page post on
/. anytime Boehner says something too.
I mean, seriously? Someone said something and it used a TLA so therefore it's /. news, apparently.
I have a Mac Mini server set up hosting about 8 TB of primary data on mirrored USB3 drives. I then have it running Time Machine on all of that to a 16 TB RAID5 array on a NAS. Total cost (not including the server itself)? About $1,000... and that's for two sets of backups, one for drive errors (primarily) and one that has an always-available actual backup.
I agree. I've been re-reading the entire Jack Ryan/John Clark chronology and it gets more boring post-cold-war and then much more boring post-9/11. Now the military fiction I read is the futuristic kind such as Honor Harrington.
Unless you're like a thousand years old there has never been a time it hasn't been political. The Olympics are entirely a political statement... it's all about interaction of nations.
