I have no idea why Google just walk away if the city doesn't roll out the red carpet.
Austin needs Google a lot more than Google needs Austin.
People are frightened by what they can't control, can't predict, and don't understand. That's why people invented gods to help explain unpredictable weather and other disasters. It works that way with people too. People want other people to be predictable, controllable, and understandable.
In which religion can you control or even fully understand your god?
Naturalism lends itself better to the idea that the universe is understandable and controllable are you sure we didn't invent it?
You know what is one of the traits I like least in a person? When they assume that it's everyone else who is ignorant, rather than check their facts.
Yes, one meaning of converse - apparently the only one you know - is to take part in a conversation. However, there is another meaning which has a similar meaning to inverse and obverse.
converse adj (prenominal) reversed; opposite; contrary n something that is opposite or contrary a categorical proposition obtained from another by the transposition of subject and predicate, as no bad man is bald from no bald man is bad Etymology: 16th Century: from Latin conversus turned around; see
So basically, your post is laden with iron.
. Such disdain. Wow.
Very irony in fact.........?
Amazon is a USA company. Why try to defend them by repeating the lie that they aren't?
If they do business in the UK they follow UK laws. Republicans get no say in the matter.
Replace "Microsoft" with the name of any company that suddenly got religion and is now working so hard to protect our privacy. How long did it take Google to finally get around using https and secure logins? A long fucking time, but we can't say anything about Google - because they do nifty shit like flying WiFi balloons in Africa. Meanwhile, Bill Gates is on the ground giving billions to eradicate disease -- something that actually improves peoples' lives in a meaningful way. But we still have to slam Microsoft, because Billy boy and his minions are so evil.
None of the major IT companies gave a rats ass about user privacy until Snowden leaked his information. FFS -- enough with the slamming Microsoft shit already, the 90's have been over for a long time now. Go back to trolling on The Verge or Apple Insider.
Who is Bill Gates again? Oh right he';s the guy who doesn't run Microsoft.
Remind me how many people Ballmer helped?
This is the type of life they want for all of us.
YEah......the UK is just a bastion of republican ideals........
Drug dealers uses cell phones to communicate. Following your flawless logic we should incarcerate every executives of Sprint, AT&T, MetroPCS and all...
Only if the drug dealer called an AT&T rep and asked if his plan had roaming charges while he was moving drugs across the border.
I am still trying to figure out was the *disadvantage* is (in terms of climate and environment) to less pollution.
I know some fat blowhard will make less money, but excuse me if that doesn't concern me much.
Taxing fuel increases the price of shipping which raises the price of almost everything even for poor people who ride their bike to work. Given how bad the economy is it's understandable that this would be unpopular.
-1 The article was submitted here by Laura Weinstein herself.
well conveniently the submitter and the author of the blog are the same person. Nice of the "editor" to put maximum trolling on the frontpage.
/ one of the worst articles I've ever seen on Slashdot. That's saying something since I was around during the Jon Katz days.
This isn't like Win 8 where you can't reach some features without going through the metro desktop. All the tools are still there, Apple hasn't threatened (yet) to prevent installation from other sources outside their app store. They aren't making you use their little app display thing (which is really the same thing as the start menu in windows) and they let you change the weird backwards scrolling they introduced.
I'm really not sure what your anger is about? That OS X has changed? It's been around for nearly 14 years, of course it's changed. Are you worried it's losing its unix roots? iOS is unix based as well!
Besides what would you switch to?
Ubuntu? It has the best support in terms of "just working" but they have ADD about their interface which has changed how many times over the last five years? And now they decided they didn't get enough derision over the Unity fiasco so they're going to go recreate it with the Mir/Wayland controversy.
Fedora/Redhat? Kind of ADD on features from time to time. Less easy to get some components working with normal hardware. Redhat especially isn't as bleeding edge. I guess if you're going linux that's the better route but either way you lose the polish.
Win7? I don't get this at all. MS isn't going to support Win 7 forever and you'll be forced into the nastiness that is whatever windows they come up with next. Microsoft is trying to recreate Apple's success with a worse interface. If you don't like Apple I can't understand why on earth you'd switch to MS.
I was getting this yesterday when reading an article on Mashible. I noticed that it stopped doing it by logging out of Facebook. Probably something I should be doing anyway to prevent them from tracking me all over the place
It's funny. I know very well that nubs work really bad as analog sticks, but when I saw that controller, my first thought was, "Why the hell do gamepads still need a Select and Start button?"
I don't know about select but start makes a good pause button.
Is there a summary of the summary available?
It's a pain in the butt to get yourself removed from yahoo's email blacklist.
