Your analogy can be extended even further. Armor plating a vehicle has an enormous cost in fueld efficiency and handling. This could be directly compared to the labor and complexity costs of managing host firewalls on large numbers of servers when they're indiscriminately applied.
In the firmware development group I work in we actually have a good amount of diversity.
We will hire anyone with talent.
The lack of opportunity is not in the hiring area. It is in the home and education. Hiring someone because of race is bigotry. I doesn't matter if the race happens to be anglo or african descent.
The Vendor will have issues with their product running if you do not configure the firewall correctly and will cost the Vendor support time.
If you get hacked because you let malware onto your POS systems or put a compromised machine on the network it is your problem.
A firewall will just prevent an exploit of a service. So only run the services you need. The real issue for this POS would be an exploit that gains access to the SQL server and a firewall is probably not going to stop that.
...they want their dead horse back.
Yep, at least, our real biology- as opposed to a made up biology from a bunch of "sexual revolutionists". It is important to separate the sane from the insane, after all.
While keeping those two groups separate, I suggest your reread (or review) "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest".
You went and ruined the sarcasm.
Sorry. I missed it the first time.
Which is exactly why this does not use V3.
To be secure you really need to have the option to lock down the hardware and only allow updating with signed modules. It is actually part of the FIPS regulations.
You have to want a better streaming experience than Valve's Steam already offers for free (and you can buy a Windows Tablet for the same price, and Valve is expected to support Android and iOS soon). You can use whatever system and whatever video card you want to stream the game to and from - even go wired ethernet to get around the inevitable problems you get streaming games over wireless.
If you go Shield, the tablet price is just the beginning: you have to have a mid-range GeForce card purchased in at least the last 2 years ($120+ if you don't already have one), the controller + stand ($100), and of course a suitable dual-band router runs at least $70 (most people use the crap one that came with their internet install).
In all, you could be on the hook for anywhere from $400 all the way up to $600. That's getting DANGEROUSLY close to the same price as an entry-level gaming PC, so again the need just doesn't present itself there.
No, nothing in this article says anything about the site selection which is still pending, just that it will be a joint venture between Tesla and Panasonic rather than Tesla going alone as was previously believed.
How about this. Make VMS on Atom->i5 free and charge for VMS on i7->up on Intel and do the same with AMD. Make it free on the lower end chips and more expensive on the workstation and server chips.
You might even get some interesting apps made for it and maybe even pickup some support contracts.
BTW I know the i7 is often used on high end systems besides workstations. If you wanted you could slice it up by socket 1150 being free and socket 2011 and up being pay.
The idea is to get the OS out for more people to use. Frankly I bet HP could still be making money on Alpha and PA-RISC systems if they had wanted too.
And these comments have pushed me right of the maybe legalizing pot is ok into the not a chance.
You all are nuts.
The argument that it is no worse than tobacco is at best amusing since tobacco is a terrible drug.
Actually it is more a warning about what happens when growth slows.
As long as people are getting richer everything is good. It is only when thing slow down that the problem start.
Greed is satisfied when it is fed, put in on a diet and it gets ugly.
They'd sold thousands of them. In a market counted by the millions that's very insignificant.
"Apple didn't come from behind in the smartphone market. They created the market. "
Well, that's one view into the reality distortion field.
And I bet if he had said something along the lines of "Apple came from behind in the smartphone market and knocked the heretofore industry leaders on their asses", you'd have an equally useless and snarky rejoinder.
Sometimes the inverse RDF is just as strong as the RDF itself...
Don't feed the troll.
