No deaths, but from TFA
Last October the pilots of Northwest 188 over-flew their destination by 150 miles because they were using their laptop computers for personal activities and lost situational awareness.
which is quite serious IMHO

Hrm, so they got caught by phishing using a fake Forgot Password form, and they send the exact same password reset request in their break-in acknowledgement? D'oh! It could well be another phishing attempt
+1 for personnal certificates stored on tokens. -1 for one time passwords. -100 for reused passwords (special mention for 'online banking').
Actually it is C:\WINDOWS\system32\browserchoice.exe

crashes chrome on linux HARD...
Which is it? chrome only (so it is not HARD) or the whole system (meaning it could well be X/the display driver that bring the system down).
Can anyone tell me why a computer that is 10 times faster with 4 times the memory is so much slower at responding to simple inputs? There's a perceptible lag when just single clicking a desktop icon to highlight it.
What antivirus do you run on each machine? Every file in a folder is scanned before it is displayed, that may explain a thing or two.. By the way in this regard Avira is decent at not slowing down too much things.
just add "--enable-extensions" to your chrome shortcut, then click the extension on the webpage and it will be active right away. now if some people could support the project..
I'd rather lose my ability to hear.
Experience it and let us know.. I somehow doubt it, being deaf could be worse (IMO) than being blind. No longer hearing voices or music? no way!
Yes, it is fine, since you can turn off their google proxying and "not found" redirection. And it is certainly better than using Level3 anycast servers which are being blocked from the outside now.
An Airplane is a flawed system created by flawed humans.
There. fixed that for you.
they had 40K at the last official count and their new datacenter has a 50K capacity and filling quick (+3 bays/day 7/7). Not surprising given they offer the cheapest dedicated one can find ($15/mnth no contract: Atom 1.6Ghz, 512MB ram/2GB flash for swap, 10GB iSCSI disk, unlimited bandwidth).
Strange that TFA doesn't mention it.
no PC release?
But a business user needs to spend, spend, spend to multi-home.
Wrong. The only cost is implied by the use of potentially bigger pipes sold with BGP service but nowadays you can have a 100mpbs link for $1000.. Technically it costs 0 (open source routers, IPs and routing registries (except RADB) are free.
Here in France it is legal, except for wifi provider. Cellphone operators managed to get anti-concurrency laws about that. That's pretty stupid when one thinks about it.
Hrm, although you can't provide a bundled voip service with wifi, you can extend triple-play voip service over wifi (freephonie, sfr, orange, they all do it) so it's really not an issue.
