Imagined? I doubt that. From what I read in the summary it sounded like they were pissed off when their old programs couldn't read the new file format. To me that sounds fair. I don't think very highly of breaking backwards compatibility. It's occasionally necessary, but extremely more rarely than it is done. Usually it seems a strategy to force a purchase of new versions. And to me that sounds like abuse of a dominant market position. (I'd say abuse of monopoly, but somebody always thinks that means there aren't any competitors.)
Placing all your ID travel documents and cash in one basket is a really good idea.. Not.
Last you checked? So you were there and saw the tanks, troops, whatever invade Ukraine?
If not, how can you be certain it's not part of the media war?
Do what I do, stop caring and move inland. Let the deniers settle at the shore and shoot them when they try to outrun the flood.
Yes, people found listeners because the listeners were looking. Because they HAD TO look.
Today, no looking is needed. If you build a small burger joint at the corner and you're the only one in town, people will eventually come to you. If McD opens a branch at every other corner, nobody needs to seek you out.
Yeah and believe me a lot of people were PISSED, as Skype really is a piss poor replacement. On a positive note many of those left for other services, thus showing what I've said all along that Steve Ballmer was a cancer upon MSFT and brought nothing but dwindling numbers and failure with him. Hell if the rumors are true the only reason they were able to get Win 7 out the door without him shitting all over it was he was busy squirting the zune on all the talk circuits (boy THAT worked well) and couldn't be arsed with the flagship product.
So here's hoping that the new guy has a brain, a market with only Apple and Google doesn't sound very nice to me as it would probably be locked down and online only and at least with MSFT you can skip versions you don't like.
What If, not exactly the classic xkcd comics, but worthy a book even if he don't expand even more the articles over what was posted in that site.
Last I heard a lot of companies side with drug dealers, hookers and other shady subjects. All of them accept cash, ya know?
The freedom to speak is worthless if there is nobody to listen to you. In other words, nobody hears you scream on the internet, unless you're screaming where everyone is listening.
Bad bot. Bad bot. No cookie!
They trades socialist for fascist. In other words, now we don't need to hate them for being so different, we can hate them for showing us the ugly side of ourselves.
Talking about RT, if you really want to have a laugh, watch RT back to back with your favorite European/US news network. It's amazing how the same pictures with different commentary tell exactly the opposite story.
Fuck news. Everyone lies.
I think you give the average FB user far too much credit. It's going to be as usual. Everyone will complain just what kind of un-American asshole or whatever other negative attribute can be mustered FB in general and Zuckerberg in particular is, and the indignation will last exactly until whatever browser game is currently all the craze on FB and their plants need watering, their zombies need feeding or their castles need building.
Face it. People don't give a shit as long as it doesn't cut into their entertainment. Actually, if giving shit cuts into entertainment, they'd rather not give any.
I didn't personally use Wifi until it had been in place, with an encryption system that had proven itself, for a number of years before I trusted my networks and data to it.
WEP was broken, so I reset the clock. WPA was compromised so I reset the clock. It was only WPA2 that has proved difficult to "simplify" the problem by using real, proven encryption schemes rather than making-one-up-as-we-go-along.
Common bloody sense.
