RTFA? Motherboard is defined for a more action packed life than your home laptop, as is the screen (lower res but better vis in direct sunlight).
A mix of bad decisions and really awful decisions mean I don't see how I'll ever be able to retire.
Which is bad, but what is worse is Development feels like a "young persons game". Rarely do I see anyone over 45 (not far off) coming for an interview, so I've got to move out of what I enjoy (creating stuff) and move to the next level (stopping other people from developing, err, management).
The Rufus Cuff is tempting. I could see the move from my current Galaxy Note 2 to one of these and tablet with stylus. Mostly for running and convenience to look stuff up. I love my Note but it is big when whipping it out, but note quite big enough to write on. If I'm to deconverge I'd want the "quick glance" thing to be quick-glance-y and that is a watch or Glasses.
I hope so. That game was amazing!
Tags as a general rule are shit. Wow you wrote you name on a wall. Well done. Have a cookie. Some times effort is put into a tag, but lets be honest, most people do not.
It is still "art", it is just shit art. That should be painted over.
That not the case for all tags (but 99.9999% of them). Grafitti however as a general rule is meh. Some of it can be great, some of it can be shit (wow it is a very good dick you just spray painted on a wall).
Is that required for you current project? Will the disadvantages of NoSQL based databases hit you (for example are cross-document consistency or cross-document transactions important)?
Give what you have posted in the OP I don't see a good reason to select No SQL over relational over object over flat files and without more information all you are going to get is a list of personal preferences. So lets jump in with my personal preference... look into your data you plan to store and what queries you want to do on it. Then match that against the general styles (relational, object, KV, tabular, graph). Once you have done that I'd likely just look at the leaders for that style of data store and spike it out.
> pump-and-dump scheme where they get a prototype working just well enough
I've played briefly with a prototype. They could go to market right now and have a good device.
> VR sucks because until it works like this
Sucks and "not perfect" are different things. Sword fighting games without feedback are far from perfect. The Wii still had some good games with swords.
It looks like it now has a schema-less (Key–value if I'm reading it right) mode as well as a method of dumping anything into said KV data store.
Does it have schema-less mode?
Have they buggered up the SQL parser?
Have they buggered up relations?
Can I separate out data sets and have 'em running on different node?
I'd assume the box that the money is in is secured and had paint or the like that will trigger when it is opened.
Plus you can only do it once and it is very noticeable. Chopping a small hole in the box and secretly installing a small phone you could exploit time and time again without drawing attention from passers by.
The SMS is just a way to communicate to the phone. What the hackers have done (if I'm reading the FA correctly) is make a phone pretend to be a USB keyboard attached to the PC in the ATM. The phone can then be set up to send a control sequence to the ATM tell the ATM to spit out money. So the problem has nothing to do with either SMS or Windows XP. If the ATM was VAX or Mac OS or Home brew OS or Linux and you did not lock down the local USB ports then it would have the same issue.
The general issue of USB ports happily accepting keyboard has been an issue with ATMs before, but you have to stand by the ATM with a keyboard. This way you just plug in the phone and leave it there to exploit time and time again.
Depends on how public the knowledge already is.This is the first time I've heard of it, but this kind of thing is done a lot (private stuff thrown on publicly available services that can be found via a Google search) so I'd guess this was already reasonably well known in the bad people circles. By shouting about it Amazon is ensuring that everyone knows without having to track down and inform people individually.
Any good modern platform will do automatic conversion for you.
But that is after the item.
That also works in Chromes super bar thing.
Beer in chrome goes find me beer.
as does "Where do I buy strawberry beer?"
But I'd never think of writing "? Beer" to find beer.
> HTTP components in language API's
I'm going to assume you mean complete stack (HTTP, HTML renderer, JS Engine etc). While the HTTP layer is fairly simple (and thus implement well in a ton of APIs for each of the major platforms), the rest is BIG and to do it well is hard so it is not done well all that often. So what you end up with is either a re-skinned IE, Firefox or Chrome.
Now these exists, for a bunch of different reasons for example before IE had tabs a tabbed IE existed and people who want to stay in the late 1990s have SeaMonkey. However most end up with an interface that is a lot like Chrome/Firefox/IE (as it is a good interface) but without the plugin support.
> Though I wonder how many companies would block you from accessing their site if the browser doesn't have the correct branding
I use to happen a lot and that is why we now have stupid user agent strings.
Mine is currently:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/33.0.1750.117 Safari/537.36
Mozilla/5.0 - Pretend to be Firefox
AppleWebKit/537.36 - And Safari
KHTML - Base of Safari/Chrome
Gecko - Back to Firefox
Chrome - I could be Chrome
Safari - Of Safari
The only one missing is IE. And I've seen many a user agent string that includes that as well (while not actually being IE).
