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.
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?
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.

sciencehabit (1205606) writes "Scientists have found that mice feel 36% less pain when a male researcher is in the room, versus a female researcher. The rodents are also less stressed out. The effect appears to be due to scent molecules that male mammals (including humans, dogs, and cats) have been emitting for eons. The finding could help explain why some labs have trouble replicating the results of others, and it could cause a reevaluation of decades of animal experiments: everything from the effectiveness of experimental drugs to the ability of monkeys to do math. Male odor could even influence human clinical trials."
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.
