This is only partially true. You have to remember that Apple products used to suck. People did not want them.
> That's what snapper is for.
Does snapper work with ZFS?
Many people get laid off. If one of them develops a tweeting toilet, it does not deserve a Slashdot story.
I generally like Amazon. I am a Prime subscriber and I am supposed to be able to watch their Prime videos as well. However we're an Android family and do not have any iOS or Amazon devices. I have tried them, but I did not like them.
Netflix supports Android devices well. And I like them for it. Amazon is pulling these shenanigans in order to prop up support for their mostly uninteresting platform. Android has the largest market share and my family has 4 Android tablets and 4 Android phones. None of these devices can play Amazon instant video. Damn you Amazon!

No sir. I am dead serious! Obama is incompetent. Take for example this business with Putin and ISIS and Taliban. It is getting out of control. Not because these are hard problems, but because Obama is a pussy. He wants to keep thinking about it. As GWB would say, time for thinking is over. Its time to kick some ass. If you have seen the Rambo series of movies, you'd know what I am talking about.
Man, I hope to God Chuck Norris runs for president and wins. I'd like see the expression on Putin's face when that happens.
> Yep. The country's in the very best of hands.
Damn straight, this is Obama's fault.
Some low level govt. employee accidentally connected a computer to the Internet and exposed it to malware. If that isn't the reason to impeach Obama then I don't know what is.
I agree with others. I cannot recall reading any story on Slashdot that made less sense.
Additionally I have never understood the point of cell phone insurance. The phones do not cost that much. Just insure it yourself. If you lose it or damage it, buy another one. In the end, you'll come out ahead. Insurance companies understand this, so should you. Only stupid people pay for phone insurance.
Also, if you cannot live without a phone for a day or so, then keep an old phone around for emergencies. If you do not have one, get one off of Craiglist or eBay. Plenty of really decent options for $50, for a backup phone. With T-Mobile and AT&T, you can swap out the SIM and you're ready to go. With Verizon and Sprint, you have to go a web page to register your new phone. Done.
Lastly, I know other people have said it, but it is worth repeating. Don't be so damn stupid!
I agree with the other poster. uTorrent is malware. In the instance you cited, Google actually was doing the right thing and protecting your ignorant ass.
Chrome is my primary browser. Why shouldn't people be using Chrome if they value their privacy? Can you provide some concrete reasons, other than "Google is evil"? Some of us need evidence and not accusations.
One has to wonder if Donald Sterling would have received this much money for his team without a scandal? It appears to me that he greatly profited from the scandal.
Thanks for an informative post, complete with wikipedia links for people like me who do not understand many of these medical terms. Its not very often that a poster will go to this length to make an informative and useful post.
We were forced to sign this contract. On gun point actually. And then they said that we should take their money or they'll break our knee caps.
You see, we are the victims here.
Tablets only became popular when they got to their current form and pricing level. The older tablets and specifically this Nokia one wasn't going to be popular.
More money and a wider audience.
I have been doing this since usenet days. I got hooked to newsgroups early. I was about 18 years old and this was 1990. I have not been able to read ordinary books since then. I can read technical books just fine. The kind that pack a lot of information. I have tried several times, but have utterly failed to read fiction. Something inside me tells me that I am wasting my time. Not that I don't waste time. I do that a lot. I watch plenty of movies, TV, hang out with friends and family etc. etc. and I "skim the Internet" a tonne. I have a good job, wife and two kids. It is not entirely clear to me how this "problem" is hurting me.
