You don't understand - the iPad will act as a controller (I would say MIDI controller but a lot of those apps actually use the OSC protocol) and is not meant to run a DAW like Ableton. People will still run their DAWs the usual way - on laptop/desktop machines.

So it's the iPad not as a host, but a remote device for controlling software running in the host.

Sergey Brin On Google and China 368 368

yuhong writes "The NY Times has an interview with Sergey Brin on Google and China. A few quotes from it: 'Mr. Brin lived in the Soviet Union until he was nearly 6 years old, and he said the experience of living under a totalitarian system that censored political speech influenced his thinking — and Google's policy. "It has definitely shaped my views, and some of my company's views," he said.' Yes, business is personal, especially these days."

Become Your Own Heir After Being Frozen 375 375

destinyland writes "A science writer discovered it's possible to finance your cryogenic preservation using life insurance — and then leave a huge death benefit to your future thawed self. From the article, 'Most in the middle class, if they seriously want it, can afford it now. So by taking the right steps, you can look forward to waking up one bright future morning from cryopreservation the proud owner of a bank account brimming with money!' There's one important caveat: some insist that money 'will have no meaning in a future dominated by advanced molecular manufacturing or other engines of mega-abundance.'"

Did you mean the SusClientId? AFAIK this is the only identifier WSUS uses to distinguish between computers (they also don't have to be on the same domain).

On new clones you only need to delete the SusClientId key under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate; the update service will take care of assigning the machine a new ID.
