So ISIS wants to kill US soldiers? Wow! Holy shit! Clearly this is a surprising development!

Mostly people don't bother with all this stuff to start with, and the manufacturers are so busy trying to sell new TV's that they don't even bother to build good one to begin with.
For instance, I just set up a Sonos 5.1 surround system. During the process I checked compatibility with my TV and I found this list of televisions that don't pass 5.1 surround data out the TOSLINK port under various conditons: https://sonos.custhelp.com/app... . Some only pass it from specific sources and some don't pass it at all. I'm lucky, my TV works under all conditions. Never mind problems with HDMI/HDCP/CEC/ARC compatibility.
I don't care about increased resolution because I can't be sure that the next TV I'll buy will meet my minimum specs. Purchasing is a gamble these days and once you engineer a working solution why would you upgrade? I didn't jump on the 3D idiocy and I'll bet you didn't either. Even if you have a 3D TV did you buy extra, or any glasses for it?
The producers, in a genius move enabled by "vertical integration", will add a new broadcast or regional flag or change an encryption key or some shit and stop making media in the old format. People will run like lemmings to Walget or TarMart to buy new equipment because the old stuff has been artificailly obsoleted. It's enough to make me stop watching altogether. Good luck selling your advertising time when no one gives a shit assholes.
The best reason to stop burning oil is because it's so useful for other things. Very little oil is needed to make the dashboard in your car, or the case for your phone, or lubricants, etc.
Stop making me develop a separate style sheet for your browser. Toe the fucking line. This is possibly the most visible problem that makes people hate M$. Try writing a website from scratch and then find out that something like the float tag sin't working yet in IE so you can use it but you'll have to write something else for M$ browsers.
Generally, this type of enterprise class hardware comes with a support contract good for some period of time. During that time you can expect that the firmware and drivers will stabilize. So, don't buy this sort of hardware used if it doesn't come with a disk containing those files.
What bugs me is the faint possibility that they'll hold back firmware patches until the bulk of contracts for a given model expire. Holding back on a firmware update that enables more RAM to force people into extending their contracts? Sure!
Yeah, Cisco shriveled up and died.
Ha. Ha. I'm serious though. I'm wondering if my obesity is really affecting my cognitive functions.
Maybe it's just easiest to detect emotional distress in women's breasts? Maybe it's harder to find a place on a male body that gives the same feedback that is already in contact with a piece of clothing? This might just be the low-hanging fruit.
Yes. I typed that.
Micro$oft finding new data to provide to the NSA. You know...I wonder if they're monitoring all that bluetooth enabled heart rate data out there?
"Fat shreds memory and cognitive function"
Can you cite a source for this?
Yep, well, if you're a guy wearing a bra then you know you already need to stop eating.
Gives a whole new meaning to TouchPoint.
Squeeze left for yes, right to cancel.
