Having recently dealt with Samsung on a warranty issue, I promise I won't be an early adopter of anything they push out. Especially first gen.
There was a large Time Warner outage a week or two back... it was blamed on a fiber cut in DC (that fed this area). Makes me wonder if it's just a coincidence...
Ghost of GWB?
How many years has Obama been in office? Eventually you've got to give him some credit... you know, what with the 2nd term and all....
I've seen Stargate. I know this is just another lame government cover up of an alien visitation. Better check on your cows!!
By that measurement, smartphones, themselves, would not be regarded as innovative because they all used existing technology.
I'd never do it myself, but I'm looking forward to seeing which projects survive and how they change the landscape in five years. X11 was difficult to use for years... let's see what a little competition can do for innovation and usability.
It's possible the list was snagged by a disgruntled (or ex) employee who sold the list. The Powers That Be may not believe the list has been compromised. A few back channel comments and/or a FB isn't actionable proof.
I'd post to their support email line (I'm assuming they have one?) and provide the unique email address you used. Provide more detail than this post. Then if they still ignore, share it on publicly as a public service to their other customers.
I had a friend that was in a similar situation. A company that handled their mass emails had an employee grab a ~ton~ of addresses when he quit. It took a few reports, but once they realized what had happened, they acted.
Can you link to docs in the old system? If so, create Google docs that are organized links into the old system. You want to see the minutes from all the meetings over the last year? Here's that page of links. Budgets? Here it is.
Over time you'll make the Google Docs the de factor standard. Once everyone is accustomed to using Google docs, you can start creating new docs in any system. Including Google docs.
This will gradually wean people off the old system without any single, massive switch. And hopefully it'll be a nice, gradual process.
btw, if the old system doesn't support links into documents, you can ask Bob to add it.
Agreed...Apple has absolutely nothing to fear from Microsoft. Microsoft is destroying themselves from the inside. For Apple to buy Nokia, that might cause Microsoft to wake the fuck up and start building their own phones, like Apple does.
If Apple really wants to see Microsoft fail, the best option is to let them continue down the path they are currently on.
IMO, the controller should have been launched first as a standalone console.
The system will support *at most* two tablet controllers. I can't imagine any games will require 2 tablet controllers.
Just about any multiplayer strategy game. Each user having a tablet would allow them to interact with the game in secret. For example, a football game would allow each player to draw their own detailed plays.
More like a cycle of life... the oil spill is eaten by the bacteria, and then the bacteria get eaten by something else, which then gets eaten by something else.
I'm wondering what the fishing boats in the Gulf are seeing, if there was a corresponding explosion of growth in populations of shrimp or such.
That's why the insurance lobby is going to get HEAVILY behind automated cars, and pushing legislation to make them required. Everyone will still be required to purchase insurance, but the incidence of traffic accidents will drop dramatically.
There's also the issue of cost.
Everyone will want an automated car. Hell, who wouldn't want to take a nap during their work commute, or watch TV or read a book?
New technology is always expensive at first. To reduce cost, I can see car manufacturers offering a budget car that has *no* manual controls. I think that first world countries will adopt automated driving very quickly, and that by the turn of the century, manually operated cars won't exist on public roads.
