I thought the idea for a kernel dbus came out of Nokia's Maemo team originally?
The battery is usually the first thing to wear out on a laptop, and others are the hard drive (not sure about SSDs though), the CPU fans, the hinges and the catch in my experiece. Software also tends to need more memory over time. It should be reasonably painless to make this happen..
If your car is being GPS tracked, and the police aren't giving chase just park up and run off. Idelly push it down a hill empty so they don't notice it's stopped (because that's not dangerous at all). Let the police have their fun and GPS track an empty car.
Is more competition in the mobile market not a good thing? The prevailing attitude on a lot of forums at the moment seems to be that everyone should just buy Android and be done with it. We went this way with Windows 20 years ago and I think most people would agree it was not a good thing.
Depends whether or not you can argue the youtube is a de-facto monopoly in streaming video.
That's why I went contracting:
* Less human resources to deal with
* No need to fire me - I'm a supplier
* No need to give them notice (but I do because as they're a client, it's obviously in my interests to do so).
Well yes. The more they filter, the more people will opt out.
I prefer Mathematic
Yep, for me the worst example is akonadi, which is enormously complex, and crashes every now and then in strange and different and difficult to track down ways on pretty much every system I've used it on. I have a fair amount of sympathy with them because I'm not sure how these kind of bugs would ever get fixed. Unless of course the person reporting them likely being the only one who can reproduce due to the cause being some obscure spam in their gmail goes digging and fixes it themselves.
Not sure why this wasn't closed ages ago.
The EU single market mandates that you must be able to buy and sell in metric, which is logical since you can't really have a common market without common units. You can also use whatever other units you like and as such many places use imperial units in preference to metric units, reverting to them only when necessary.
Road signs are still mph, horse races are still miles and furlongs and beer is sold by the pint so I think we're happily confused on matters of units this side of the pond.
You buy a device to store your personal data on from a company that collects personal data for a living, and then run an app on it from another company that profits from collecting you data and then are confused when they collect your personal data?
Reposting as me
Really? Is it? Could you tell by looking at some pgp source whether it has been compromised or not? Maybe you could but the majority of people reading this could not and if that's true of slashdot what hope does the rest of the wold have?
Need to post some boxes that say 'contains god' and see if it gets there quicker than the control.
You know why XBox is so big?
Sadly the XBox is so big because it was much easier to pirate games for it than it is for the Wii or the PS3.
