Your problem is that you bought a Sony instead of (like I did) an el-cheapo DVD player out of China that doesn't have any of the extra crap the Sony does getting in the way.
Nissan should take the Leaf drivetrain and stick it in a Nissan X-Trail or Pathfinder or whatever their smaller 7-seat SUV is these days.
What about the Jeep Wrangler? Does that count?
Why does Canada do what the US wants instead of what is in the best interests of Canada? What would the US do if the Canadians said NO on issues like this?
If ad providers did more to keep their networks 100% free of malware, I would have less reason to block their ads.
Getting big-iron carrier/backbone grade routers and other kit that can do IPv6 just as fast as the current gear does IPv4 is expensive.
There is a federal law that makes it illegal for state authorities, local authorities and community associates/home owner associations/etc to have restrictions on the placement of TV antennas and satellite dishes. Maybe there needs to be a similar federal law regarding solar panels.
My power company here in Australia charges me 0.673700c a day for the fixed connection to the grid and 0.259500c for each kWh of electricity I use. Other electricity providers I have been with in other places in Australia do the same thing (per-day charge and per-KWh charge)
There is no reason utilities in the US and elsewhere can't do the same thing (charge all customers a fixed per-day fee that covers the cost of maintaining and running the network and stuff then charge customers for each kWh of electricity they actually use). Most importantly this should be a change for everyone (with a corresponding drop in actual per unit charges for power to account for the removal of maintainence costs etc from those charges) and not just an extra fee charged only to solar power users.
I would have thought any assets (be they physical or intangible like copyrights) held by Nazi leaders would have been confiscated by the allies at the end of the war, meaning the descendents of Goebbels would have no claim to the copyrights.
The SLS should be scrapped anyway, the only real reason it exists (at least in its current form) is to keep a bunch of contractors in key congressional districts in business after the end of the shuttle program.
The issue isn't "android" per se, its "Google Play Services" which is a big set of (AFAIK closed source and proprietary) libraries that many apps depend on to do stuff. If you want "Google Play Services" on your device you need to follow all the other Google rules. So the EU is saying that Google is using "Google Play Services" (something it has a dominant market position in since its the only provider of many of these services for Android apps) as a way to push other things in the Google stable (and hurting things not made by Google that compete with those other things)
I use SeaMonkey which is the descendent of the old Mozilla suite.
Its got all the same web engine stuff as Firefox does but it doesn't have the crappy UI or some of the other "unwanted" crap from Firefox.
Right now Microsoft has a JIT compiler running on a few platforms that translates
They aren't abandoning anything, just using LLVM instead of rolling their own JIT compiler on certain platforms where doing so makes sense.
Whats it going to take to get politicians elected (not just in New Zealand but in Australia, the USA, Europe and elsewhere) that are no longer in bed with the big media companies and no longer giving those companies whatever the hell they want?
WE get nothing at all. But the Congressmen supporting these bills get nice fat cheques from the big corporations who see net neutrality as a threat to their business model (especially those who make their money through the old legacy business model of selling linear channels instead of the new consume-what-you-want-when-you-want business model that entities like Netflix use)
