First thing I thought was placing the moon on a collision course with the earth, thereby ensuring the extinction of all life. Take that you soviet dogs!
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
My gripe: I run remote desktops. Sometimes from an iPad, sometimes from an android tablet, sometimes in windowed mode from a windows PC. Nearly everything does not work with remote desktop. There's no start button to click. There's no way to run an app w/o getting to start. There's no way to simulate gestures when you don't use a mouse. Productivity is way down with this thing.
I wouldn't necessarily say it was a fail at all. The usage of power at their datacenter probably ties in directly to the buy-in by consumers of their cloud hosting solutions (office 365, Azure, Dynamics, Skydrive). If they can't get much of a response this year, their usage will be low. However, looking at the way Windows 8 is designed, most of the features cannot be enabled without a Windows Live account, so next year's consumption may expect to increase significantly, and stay up there. When you lay out infrastructure, you don't plan for the short term, after all.
More than that, his long term plan was to replace the content distribution channels with an alternative model using megaupload. He already had some celebrities lined up, and a promotional video and song done. That's significantly more than just being a fixer.
1. A command line interface for everything the program is supposed to do.
2. A GUI interface that scripts and engages the command line for every button you press
Thus the program is forced to adapt to both requirements, and is scriptable as well as having an easy interface. Also helps in debugging.
Coupled with search, I barely have to touch the mouse sometimes. Yes, the focus group appears to be maybe 10 senior managers at Microsoft or something.
A smart person can't be smart without interaction with others. Preferably other intelligence. It's called iron sharpening iron.
Over here we buy our licenses in USD. Why the inconsistency?
You know, remote wipe isn't really a working solution. I've never had a remote wipe that worked successfully.
Why? because remote wipe requires connectivity, whereas a stolen device is guaranteed to be switched off and the sim card removed immediately. Then you would have to count on connecting to a wireless network. Without user intervention.
Number 1, for trying to impose american law on the world. That's the act of a school bully making people his bitch because he can beat them up. Number 2, for electing such bullies to be their leaders! I mean, why! I doubt this list would embarrass any country other than the USA, as it exposes the level of bigotry and blindness of their people.
Read this comment, then flamebait it to hell. Still not posting anon.
The hunters names were "One", "Two", "Three", "Four", "Hrair", "Hrair", "Hrair", "Hrair", and "Hrair". But only if the monkeys were rabbits. Are you sure you didn't get your anecdote mixed up with a famous story somewhere?
Siri is similar to Google? I thought you should be comparing it to Wolfram Alpha.
There was this bald monkey coming out, screaming in his monkey language: "There... Are... Four... Hunters!"
And then, he died. Apparently a bad day to wear his red shirt.
Myself I wanted to play Little Big Planet, Uncharted, Shadow of the colossus. I wanted one of their sweet MILC cameras, some of the best in the consumer market. I even checked out their walkman wearabes, really good if you're a runner because it's cordless, and really the only player that offers something an ipod can not.
Didn't buy any of them, because I remember what it means to buy a sony. I have a rusting VAIO that had a battery die early in its life, yet not too early that I could get it replaced. So suck it, Sony.
If this is true, that the pesticide is so powerful, then bees all over do not stand a chance at all, as we have no means of controlling anything we release into the environment in such small quantities. Here's hoping that bees will develop a resistance to this particular pesticide, as all pests eventually do.
