Older versions do. Apple has switched over to PF.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
iMessage was a fix to a price issue, a political issue, and a control issue.
If cell phone companies weren't charging so much for something that should be free Apple would have had less incentive to come up with a solution that worked around them.
We should have extended sms/mms to include encryption and for it to be free worldwide. Instead we get a bunch of solutions that don't work with one another.
What is your deal? I've seen you post this comment almost word for word on various other sites.
You've got some good points. But a lot of your argument doesn't seem to be about those points. Your argument seems to mostly have a emotional basis to it. As if you don't like the company/ies involved for whatever reason that you don't seem to be saying.
T-Mobile just has to maintain the cdma network for a little while. Years perhaps. Customer and hardware turnover will get customers onto hspa/lte compatible hardware. A lot of MetroPCS customers already have lte compatible devices. From the google search I see that it's hardware that's able to handle VoLTE. T-Mobile can make a push to improve the lte coverage and current MetroPCS hardware will be able to work without the cdma network. In the meantime they can continue to roam onto sprints network.
The maintenance of four different networks isn't really even a big deal. With the tower equipment that T-Mobile is using and deploying is capable of running all four with either a software update or very little hardware changes. I feel that you are also being a bit disingenuous with this argument since 2GSM UMTS/HSPA and LTE are in the 3gsm family and were designed to do handoffs with each other, cdma and lte were not so much.
As for the FCC requirements you don't actually know that the fcc is going to do that. The last few years it's been the two big dogs that have been making acquisitions. Those are different stories and I wouldn't use them as examples for a company the size of the new T-Mobile. If the new T-Mobile does indeed have to give up some spectrum we won't and don't know how much.
The technical issues you listed just don't seem to be that big of an issue. This is a business move. This is about combining two companies for the synergies. The real winner here is Deutsche Telekom. Which can sell off stock slowly from the newly formed company.
You're real reasons really show through when you decided to use that last sentence "This is a terrible, terrible, idea, and the people behind it are terrible, terrible, people." So again I ask. What's your deal?
The ram maxes out at 4GB per process. Not per system. LPAE allows memory to be addressed up to 40bits
Serial ports may not be fast but they are very useful for low bandwidth tasks. One I use all the time is for console.
39/3.9 Buying t mobile is about ten times more expensive then just upgrading the network. Not 1/4
This should be in Rob Malda's circle.
I have it disabled since it's buggy and it's a huge security risk.
If the dead horse stops wanting to be beaten then the dead horse should stop being relevant.
Go back and look at the irc logs that the dev's were on. It took quite a bit to free those devices.
It doesn't matter what sim card you have, it's the phones modem that matters. A sim card just says who you are to the network.
Google has the proper driver versions, while CM7 does not.
Geohot while he does help out with certain things, likes to take credit when it was really a group effort.
I don't like people that steel credit.
Same, It's my box. I will run linux on it.
I have to wonder if the 7th spu could be unlocked for games and what performance benefits it would have.
