Plenty of XP software that fails on win7/8 works fine on wine.
Let me remind you that the Silk Road mantainer was tracked by an inpected postal package, not through tor.
People gave lots of money to a total stranger for that stranger to take care of it, and got robbed.
Does that prove that Bitcoin is a bad idea, or that people are too stupid?
Plus, OpenBSD 4.5 is about
Nope. I just used the windows version on wine, and now, I'm getting rid of that. Surely, not the only person.
Plus, this means Portal 2 is now available for SteamOS.
Exactly, there's plenty of 2012/2013 reasons to hate microsoft, and people hate them because of that.
I belive this applies to windows only. I don't other OS's allow any program to scan the memory of other programs.
Also, even in windows, can't you just run steam as a different user than the cheat itself?
With the issues with patent trolls that dominate the US, it's a very dangerous territory for them to leap into, so I don't think it's one of their priorities.
Honestly, there should be a viable, easy-to-use alternative to Facebook which respects your privacy and doesn't have shady dealings with a government and isn't run by a functionally retarded man-child. But if there is one, well I don't know about it. And if I don't know about it, then 95% of people don't know about it.
I concurs, but sadly, most people don't, and that's why we don't have such an alternative.
Spending 19B on something in panicing? I wish I had the means to panic!
It's Jabber, but without the hassle of account creation. Username is automatically set up as your phone number, and password is your IMEI or something.
Jabber with the most important part stripped off: de-centralization. And no voice/video support either.
I read the web site, and I still don't understand what this web site is all about. Is it really just yet another messaging platform designed to get around SMS messaging charges? Am I missing something obvious?
1. There are tons and tons of ways to send messages to people last I checked. Why is this one worth "$16B"?
They pay for the userbase.
2. Who still pays for SMS messages? I've had unlimited texting plans for the better part of a decade, and they're cheaper than most people's cable TV bills. Are text messages significantly expensive outside of the US?
Yes, outside the US prices vary a lot. I pay, what you'd percieve as 20-50cents per message. I know other countries do have free SMS. Some plans here have free SMS, but they're the extremely expesive ones.
XMPP, as always, continues to cover everything. Open standard, lots of open source implementations, de-centralized, IM, voice, and video.
But people will still use whatever has the best marketing.
The hipocrisy on an ONG that want to impose closed protocols with closed source clients is incredible. And people just fall right into it!
We can vacuum ourselves, but don't want to. I can also grow my own vegetables, but I opt not to do so either.
