yes, a duopoly of WD and Seagate. at least in 3.5" disk market.
3.5" toshiba drives are pretty much WD with Toshiba's firmware and branding.
unfortunately, even voting with your wallet is out of the question these days since you only have a duopoly to choose from. i just hope ssds will soon catch up capacity-wise.
what if he really doesn't look at porn? then he certainly wouldn't notice 99% of the web disappearing.
by using opendns, i have practically eliminated that much web on my home network. what else is there? news, lolcatz, epic fail videos, social networks, corporate websites and wikipedia. well under 1% of the web.

CycleBeads, for example, is an iPhone app that allows women to track fertility based on the Standard Days Method, a system developed by Georgetown University's Institute for Reproductive Health in which specific days of each woman’s cycle are considered infertile. While the method is not as effective for women who have cycles outside of the 26-32 day range, Leslie Heyer says that its success rate is about 95 percent for “perfect use” and 88 percent for “typical use,” which would mean it beats condoms and falls just short of the Pill. “At first [my husband and I] were worried,” says Kate, a woman who began using CycleBeads nearly three years ago after experiencing weight gain and moodiness on the Pill, “but then we got used to it and have grown to trust it. I honestly can't imagine ever going back on the Pill.”"

Among the administration’s concerns is that terrorist groups will exploit the disclosures in the report for propaganda value. The Islamic State already clads its American hostages in orange jumpsuits, like those worn by prisoners in CIA interrogations. Hostages held by the Islamic State in Syria were subjected to waterboarding, one of the practices used by the CIA to extract information from suspected terrorists. The 480-page document reveals the results of Senate investigation into the CIA's use of torture and other techniques that violate international law against prisoners held on terrorism-related charges. Though many details of the Senate's findings will remain classified – the document is a summary of a 6,000-page report that is not being released – the report is expected to conclude that the methods used by the CIA to interrogate prisoners during the post-9/11 years were more extreme than previously admitted and produced no intelligence that could not have been acquired through legal means."
I find juniper's config mode and config file structure rather beautiful. As for their cli syntax, I don't actually see it as very different from cisco's.
if you want to clear arp cache, it makes sense that that's the actual command. no sane company would have "please make forgettings
but anyway, did cisco really invent this cli syntax type? there's the Unix way of "command -x=1 -y=2 object" and there's the OpenVMS way of "command specifier anotherspecifier object". I don't think cisco can ever claim to have invented this non-unixlike cli.
i've never worked with anything older than openvms, so it's possible there's even more prior art.

Do your 10 other choices come with vendor support (canonical) and predictable release cycles?
i've made the mistake of playing Street Fighter 2. i had such fond memories of the game from childhood. some things are just better left as memories.
i wonder how i'm going to perceive today's "realistic" 3d games in 10 years.
i have an artificial ceiling on game prices. i am mentally unable to convince myself a game can be worth more than 9.99 no matter what. and even that is only for an AAA title or good flight simulator. fortunately, i've grown out of impatience long ago and don't mind buying the likes of Crysis 3 a year or 2 after release.
last year I decided to see what this steam thing was and installed it on my linux machine. it was during their christmas game sale. a LOT of slightly dated AAA (windows) games went for 3 - 9.99. now here's the thing. at those prices i bought around 40 games, most of which i later decided i didn't like and only played a few minutes of and some of them i never even installed. and at those prices, i didn't care!
but paying 60+ dollars for a game? simply NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!!! incompatible with a healthy human brain. distributors need to realise that for every sucker who pays, there are 100s willing to pay a sensible price (not steal). and for each of those, there are even more willing to buy it as a hmmm i'll play it when kids grow up for a dollar or two.
how will this work with fingers? i had a phone with narrow bezel (galaxy s4) and could not use it. it always assumed i was tapping the sides of screen with my palm, thumb, etc.. there was just no non-interfering way of holding it securely. when i got a case for it, the opposite happened - i could not tap on anything close to the edge. i got rid of it.
