The FBI can buy the first round.
Wake me up when the folks from Fomalhaut C get here.
And tell them to bring beer.
If its exclusive, i guess they will render my perfectly fine 3Gs a virtual brick.
Look on the bright side. This might be what finally spurs support for your phone from an alternative operating system.
Sure, mock me or call me an MS shill if you want, but it's the only tablet out there that's 10 inch, has expandable storage, and I can be reasonably assured that I'll get software updates on a regular basis.
Doesn't Asus have Transformers with 10" and expandable storage?
How cute. People actually needing their truck for the job. That's the vast minority.
The F-450 is sufficiently ungainly to where most people will not drive one for vanity. I do know of one F-450 pickup truck conversion, which has a shortened frame and a custom bed, but even it is regularly used for towing.
You can get a Leaf for about 22k after tax breaks, which means you don't break even on fuel costs for well after the life of the car (12 years),
I'd imagine that the range will be somewhat decreased, but if most Leafs which haven't been piloted into a tree (etc) aren't still operating in 12 years, I will be shocked. Hopefully not literally.
If you are willing to escalate privilege, you can pretty much do what you want to any USB devices firmware, assuming it's not in ROM and not hardware fused to make it non-updateable.
I believe the assumption here is that it's not difficult for TPTB to get their firmware onto your computer. In an enterprise it's slightly tricky to do it without risk of being caught. Where individual users are concerned there is little risk in leaning on the OS vendor to deliver to you and you alone an additional payload right in a signed patch package.
You're right. Maybe it would be for the best if Google stayed far away from OIN.
Will you get grumpy?
I'm turning off the web server right now!
I know there are a lot of social and economic problems that may come to the top of peoples' minds before privacy, but in the absence of an expectation of privacy, those other problems can never really get better.
Everybody across the political spectrum has to fight this stuff. It really bothers me when political division prevent agreement on this issue. If a liberal comes out against spying then some conservatives feel they have to support it and vice versa.
This is an easy one. Everybody needs to be outraged about government collecting all this information using invasive means like DNA tests and road blocks and wiretapping and hacking.
I think to some extent, the government (and the private corporations who are doing a great deal of the actual spying and data collection) are counting on us being too divided over other issues to put up any resistance. We absolutely must prove them wrong.
The candle you lit would have been more meaningful if you hadn't spent so much time cursing the darkness.
So his non-existence would be better for society than his continued existence?
Your logical fallacy is the false dichotomy. There's lots of room in between murder and waving goodbye. Rehabilitation, it's not just a word in other nations in the developed world.
These cameras are well hidden. When the news of the arrest were announced, it was quite a surprise (... and some outrage...) that these existed at all.
What kind of asshole would assume that in the age of fifty dollar tablets, there's not a security camera on a thousand-plus-dollar payphone?
And if they had known, a well-placed blob of chewing gum would have achieved the same goal much more easily...
But then you have to be sneaky when approaching the phone. Better to be disguised before you ever approach it.
Music is what happens when creative people make sounds. There doesn't have to be only one monolithic "music market". Just because TV is using "digital musicians" has nothing to do with the four guys who play improvised music every Monday at Jerry's on Division Street, or the dubstep cats working their butts off to create prodigious amounts of recorded, disposable music or the guy who plays contrabass for the North Shore Symphony Orchestra.
So fucking what if the music on television is done using samples? And what the hell is "television" anyway? Isn't that what they used to call that big screen in the living room that I use to watch Netflix and streamed torrents?
Let's not panic. I've made a portion of my living with music since about 1980. Technology has changed since then. People still make music. In fact, I bet more people make music now than back then because the technology has democratized the production of music and made it easier to learn to play than ever.
If you're still looking to start a band and sign a deal with a major record label and..profit!, then you really need to do everyone a favor and sell your instruments and use the money to buy lottery tickets. If you're looking to have a career as a musician and pay the bills then the best approach is the same as it ever was...practice. There's nothing to indicate it's any harder today than it was when record labels and musicians' unions were king. That doesn't mean there's no need for record labels and musicians' unions, but if you don't panic and adapt everyone will be OK and there will still be music in the air and lots of lovin' everywhere so give me the night. Ooh oooh.
