When you have kids a wired mouse it the only option. Now we need a wired tv remote.
Why do you think they want to be kings? You think these guys envision themselves as commoners?
Or maybe the $150,000 is not the real prize. If you can access an account with that much money in it you can use it as part of your new "identity" to leverage even further into another account. The person whose identity has been stolen would be none the wiser and the thief could make off with 10 times that amount. If you try and access any of that 150k the bank would shut it down immediately after you pulled out the first $500. If a different bank really thought you were the owner of the account you can take your sweet time, maybe even make a couple of payments back to the bank to drag out the process.
I mean the "ad" .
This. I have one app that as far as I can tell is updated just to change the add on the splashscreen.
I don't get digital horders. I have a friend who has TB's and TB's of downloaded crap saved on DVD's and USB Hard drives. Why? He will never watch a fraction of this stuff. All those drives aren't cheap either. I have a $7.99 netflix account and can watch reruns of Star Trek TNG (or thousands of other things) if I feel like it. All at the tip of my fingers 24x7. No need to download 7 season's, and the interface on Netflix is much easier then dicking around with finding an episode you may want to watch three years from now. To each his own I guess.
and by sat on their ass you mean the co-ceo was more engaged in trying to bring NHL hockey to Hamilton then running his company.
I'm not laughing but reminiscing. I am going to d/l it and give it a spin. Nothing but respect for slack, even if I haven't used it in ages. Time to correct that.
The 3472 1.44MB floppy disk set will be available immediately.
I was thinking more along the lines of stupid because you can see him holding his smartphone with one hand in the reflection. At least he was on the Autobahn.
I do like you but just lock down at work for all the large static stuff (photos, videos etc). For important files which tend to be smaller in size (Spreadsheets, pdfs, docs) they get encrypted and uploaded to my VPS over SSH and to Skydrive.
This is wrong. Everyday users can benefit from PGP. I would venture to say that most people are not as worried about NSA snooping as they are from keeping their personal data stolen by criminals. They may not ask for PGP specifically or understand the details of encryption, but I think your average user would understand the benefit of using email to send sensitive info to the bank, or using electronic methods to discuss sensitive personal medical information with their doctor. Most people instinctively know not to use email for this without even realizing there are ways to do it securely. It's the implementation of it that leaves them cold. Small business are another segment that could benefit from it but just can't wrap their heads around it. An easy to use implementation that provided secure communication would see some uptake among people you wouldn't consider actually needing it today.
How do I get mod points? This needs to be modded up and I would have if I had any. There used to be a section in my account where I could check a box saying I was willing to moderate. I cannot find it for the life of me and have not moderated in years. Well Xest, +1 Insightful and Informative. Hell have 4 more. +5 answer all the way. (if I could)
It's because the subject takes time to digest and respond to intelligently. As opposed to the usual "NSA is Monitoring My Brain" headline. It's nice to see this type of article, it's what brought me to slashdot so many years ago. I still come everyday hoping to see more stuff like this.
good god man, how do you use your phone with no arms.
