I second this... I've never had a successful "upgrade" of Mint from one version to the next. I have always resorted to a reinstall because of numerous nasty bugs every time.

The GPU of the Pi is as powerful as the GPU of the original XBox. The CPU, however, is as fast as a Pentium II (I forget what MHz rating).
In today's climate, so to speak, media no longer wants to report the news, they want to make it.
Well... it could easily be said that if those 7 billion continue to not care there won't be 7 billion for much longer. Maybe the problem is self correcting?
My point was not that everyone considers it a fashion statement or status symbol. My point was that so long as it is both of these things then people will buy it regardless of the issues us technical folks may have with Apple or their products. Thus, Apple will keeping doing what it is doing because the developers will continue to come to it as long as they see dollar signs. Regardless of your reasons for buying Apple, the status symbol folks are in control because there are far more of them than you.
The entrance to their walled garden is a revolving door for developers. Some will leave but others will come back and new blood will always find their way in. If you do things Apple's way then you can make money and stay. But if you make money within their garden then you can bet Apple will find a way to get a cut of it or you won't be there to stay.
This issue and ones like it will have to go viral and hit more than just tech sites for people to care. In other words, so long as Apple's products are a fashion/status symbol, their users won't care so much about other people's first world problems.
I just wish we could vote "no confidence" and have all currently running candidates thrown out and the election process start over with all new people.
I think this is one of the better arguments against a pure-electric solution for an automobile... cost over time. $10k can get you a lot of gasoline and we still have no real indication of how long a life these batteries will have. If you have to replace the batteries every 50k miles at even $3k per set then the total TCO is not at all worth it. I easily burn through 50k miles in two years with my current commute. Electric cars cannot save me from gas.
Why do you think they're pushing PIPA and SOPA?
That's an easy one... because they're being paid to. Special interests are the heart and soul of our government, after all.
You still have to get your Internet connection from somewhere. Good luck with that if all you do is cause headaches for your ISP.
There is nothing more terrifying than a Somali pirate hacker.
She's not saying it was aliens... but it was aliens?

I've never seen or heard of a company hire simply because of tax cuts. Ever. They hire when demand for their products or services increase or some other factor requires more heads in house than they already have. It's that simple.
