The organization I work for has over 5,000 users and we use gmail. It has been a pretty foolproof system for us so far.
I guess these guys never heard of imaging a machine via ghost, fog, etc...
DeviceGuru writes "Many of us have griped for years about Roku's retro one-dimensional user interface. Finally, in conjunction with the release of the new Roku 3 model, the Linux-based media streaming player is getting a two-dimensional facelift, making it quicker and easier to access favorite channels and find new ones. Current Roku users, who will now begin suffering from UI-envy, will be glad to learn that Roku plans to push out a firmware update next month to many earlier models, including the Roku LT, Roku HD (model 2500R), Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, Roku 2 XS, and Roku Streaming Stick. A short demo of the new 2D Roku menu system is available in this YouTube video."
sfcrazy writes "Google has announced the Open Patent Non-Assertion (OPN) Pledge. In the pledge Google says that they will not sue any user, distributor, or developer of Open Source software on specified patents, unless first attacked. Under this pledge, Google is starting off with 10 patents relating to MapReduce, a computing model for processing large data sets first developed at Google. Google says that over time they intend to expand the set of Google's patents covered by the pledge to other technologies." This is in addition to the Open Invention Network, and their general work toward reforming the patent system. The patents covered in the OPN will be free to use in Free/Open Source software for the life of the patent, even if Google should transfer ownership to another party. Read the text of the pledge. It appears that interaction with non-copyleft licenses (MIT/BSD/Apache) is a bit weird: if you create a non-free fork it appears you are no longer covered under the pledge.
Very sad story, I hope they can find some way to give her a decent life.
Agreed, I remember being on the range and having a 5.56 shell casing go down the sleeve of my bdu shirt, hurt like hell.
Agreed, some teachers use computers as electronic babysitters, but the good teachers keep the kids on task and don't let them wander onto game sites, youtube, etc....
This story hits close to home since I grew up 25 miles from Manitowoc and my dad grew up there. He's told me stories about how his parents would take him down to see the shipyard side launch the subs into the river. They also have a pretty nice maritime museum in Manitowoc (http://www.wisconsinmaritime.org/index.php).
I second that, the Chicken Ala-King was my favorite.
In the 80's I heard my fellow soldiers refer to them as Meals Rejected by Ethiopians.
I taught my wife how to use it in about 2 minutes, much better than taking hours to clean the malware from her laptop which had happened twice prior to using noscript.
agreed, i bought a Zi-6 for a trip to NYC and it worked great. I didn't like the no removable storage and lack of easy battery replacement in the flip.
I just installed it on a crappy old Dell 260 (P4 2.0ghz) with 768mb ram and it launched and brought up websites way faster than 3.6.15 did.
I had Cingular before ATT bought them and the service was great. After they updated my phone to show ATT instead of Cingular I went from 5 bars reception to 3 bars, and where I had no dropped calls before I would get dropped about every 3rd call that went over 5 minutes in length. All this using the same phone from the same location.
Can we throw Charter communications on that list as well?
