I'm 6'2", 215lb, though I did have rubber slippers on. I'm amazed that nothing at all cracked under my full weight.
Lenovo's Thinkpads have drains in the keyboard that route water to holes on the bottom of the case
Well, I don't have to catch Polio to know that it would not be a fun time.
Same with my experience with Macbooks and all the dings and dents and scratches they get from normal use and from being in padded bags. I don't need to spend $1500 on one and step on it to guess what would happen. Can you honestly tell me that stepping on an Aluminum body would have no effect?
And I hope you're not just reacting to my criticism of Apple or their laptops. They make nice hardware. No one has a better screen, OS is nice, etc, etc, but nothing is perfect. Agreed?
My old Thinkpad T42 still looks almost brand new. My T61 looks even better. These things last. Never used a keyboard cover. I wouldn't give up on Lenovo due to one glitch.
Macbooks may be nice too look at, but I was glad I had a Lenovo when I stepped on it at night in a sleepy daze and an unfamiliar hotel room. Not even a crack, but the Macbook, I'm sure, would have lost a lot of its resale value, even if the screen remained usable.
I'm sure you can find "edge" cases that need 50mbps, but the main driver for this is always education and the kids. And really for most people, all that bandwidth is either wasted or used for nonsense. If you're doing remote work, then you'd either acquire a good enough connection, or realize that you can't work out in the middle of nowhere, get paid the same, and have visuals better than the human eye. You have to give something up.
Do you honestly expect Verizon to run fiber to every square mile of the US? All for the grand prize of your $80 per month? Sorry, you and your 3 neighbors that are spread out across 20 acres of land.
The term Obamacare is used almost exclusively by everyone to reference the new system. I wouldn't say you are advertising a product when you say "Just Google it". The term has become synonymous with searching, like kleenex had become synonymous with tissue..
Fairly certain it was a sarcastic statement.
I personally would prefer the attention paid to creating a market for energy delivery. For example, why do I have to be subject to Con Edison's rules and have no other choice? Broadband, in my view, is a less critical utility.
What is your 4Mbps connection stopping you from doing? Let's be honest. It's all about consuming high definition video. I don't see why a government should be in business of helping media companies sell their wares.
If you click "Express Install" and press Next, then that would likely be considered approval. Same goes for slyly disguised "offers" along the install process that you click Next for.
A few months ago, they didn't even give you a checkbox to decline it, or tell you it was going to be installed. So you'd get a copy of Chrome with Flash and never be told it was being installed.
The other gem is the "I Do Not Agree" radio option for MyRadioPlayer, making you think that the whole install will quit if you choose that.
You missed at least one point I made. Try rereading.
Nerds also drive to work in cars, so we should have car news as well. And I don't mean the "self driving Audi A7" type of news, but "Toyota introduces the 2016 Corolla, with redesigned styling and improved economy" type of news.
I mean, we could say "nerds do _____ with ____, thus relevant" for any story really.
