Of course you can argue that they should check and double check before etc and they are at fault.. They are not denying that they are at fault merely saying is too costly for a smaill business to to check fully without an "Army of consultants or attorneys"
Another C2 user here.. sometimes i go on 5 day work trips without taking the charger with me....
All smartphones cheap or not, are like gas guzzling SUVs when it comes to battery life, most die at the end of the day, For me and am sure many other users the phone guaranteed to have juice at the end of the day is far more important than all other bells and whistles
The Mutiny was a result of various grievances. However the flashpoint was reached when the soldiers were asked to bite off the paper cartridges for their rifles which were greased with animal fat, namely beef and pork. This was, and is, against the religious beliefs of Hindus and Muslims, respectively.
Personally i find eating cow shit disgusting and not eating only beef quite amusing, but then again I am Hindu and a vegetarian.

I am not OP, but I since i think i am part of that audience.
Sure i don't have a 3 digit ID like you, I am fairly recent user, I comment rarely, my comments are barely interesting, but guess what? people like me are the vast majority of the users, most of them don't even have an account. I am happy that slashdot is trying to stay relevant and there are people like me still joining and visiting the site and it has not (yet) become a site of old men complaining about the good ol'days.
if the community is thinking that slashdot can continue being a viable new site by catering to links browsing sys admins from the 90's it is unrealistic.
It is not like dice is changing a winning formula, readership is dwindling, they have invested a lot of money, are they supposed to just sit and watch it all collapse? If you really want to make a difference and keep slashdot classic, offer to pay for it. if enough active community members do, they will keep it. Advertisement based business models need certain critical mass, slashdot is fast losing it.
Don't want to pay big bad DH anything? build your own news aggregator, there is enough unhappy with the beta people with serious talent and plenty of time on hands in this site. Do something useful and quit bitching about.
P.S Beta IS shitty, broken, very JS heavy etc etc,However #fuckbeta doesn't help either, giving constructive feedback is more meaningful? Dice may not listen/execute it, but at least it has better chance of working than #fuckbeta
* Ask DaVinci if he got MonaLisa right the first time? Or ask him how many changes he made till Mona Lisa became the painting it is today. Or even better ask him if he is happy with the painting the way it is or it was when he last worked on it?
No work is ever complete, no true creator, artist or programmer for that matter will say his work is ever complete. Change is always for the good, however shitty the current version is. I think a quote from Tao of Programming is appropriate
A manager asked a programmer how long it would take him to finish the program on which he was working. ``It will be finished tomorrow,'' the programmer promptly replied. ``I think you are being unrealistic,'' said the manager, ``Truthfully, how long will it take?'' The programmer thought for a moment. ``I have some features that I wish to add. This will take at least two weeks,'' he finally said. ``Even that is too much to expect,'' insisted the manager, ``I will be satisfied if you simply tell me when the program is complete.'' The programmer agreed to this. Several years later, the manager retired. On the way to his retirement luncheon, he discovered the programmer asleep at his terminal. He had been programming all night.
P.S. I don't like the beta either, but am happy at least they are trying to do something.
