Perhaps the 11 were battle casualties? In which case...where did the victors go?
Doubtful...Wil hasn't posted on Slashdot in 3 years...
No DLNA? This is simply a less functional Roku device. At least you can do a custom channel to play local files. I wish WD TV would get an Amazon app...but it appears that door is closed with the release of this device. Amazon hasn't realized there are a lot of people with local files as well...not just online app accounts.
Not everyone wants a game console or PC tower sitting next to their TV. Also, having a streamlined deivce with a great UI makes sure the support calls are removed from the rest of the family. Who wants to tell their 10 year old for the 50th time to turn on the PC first and log in before using the TV? Also, I prefer to have a TV mounted on the wall with no entertainment center. These type of devices fit very well without sitting on the floor or running cables to nearby furniture. There is definitely a market...I have 3 WDTV SMPs..
That's funny. I could have sworn one of the hottest technologies around was a thing called a "cellphone".
Which, oddly enough, are mostly used to play social games, store apps, browse the internet, and check emails/texts. Notice phone plans went to unlimited voice when the shift from voice calls to data usage happened? I still use the phone...but I admit it is mostly work related now...and I am too old to be part of "generation Y". Voice calls are going to voip or being replaced with social media and text messaging. It concerns me as well that the government can pay lip service to us and claim they won't collect the voice calls...while still collecting the internet and voip traffic.
Could we deep fat fry them?
Sounds like a men's college dorm to me....
Interesting nickname attached to your comment. Foreshadowing perhaps...?
Should have at least asked for free shipping...
Not to nention that Sochi is characterised by poverty, separatism, terrorism and mass beach tourism
So when poor beach tourists start advocating a violent separation from Russia, we should be concerned?
Nice to know we as a community were worth 13.5 million as an intangible asset. However, now we are valued at 0...so we are now worthless to Dice.
Dice released their 4th quarter filing...and it does not cast Slashdot in a good light:
Slashdot Media was acquired to provide content and services that are important to technology professionals in their everyday work lives and to leverage that reach into the global technology community benefiting user engagement on the Dice.com site. The expected benefits have started to be realized at Dice.com. However, advertising revenue has declined over the past year and there is no improvement expected in the future financial performance of Slashdot Media's underlying advertising business. Therefore, $7.2 million of intangible assets and $6.3 million of goodwill related to Slashdot Media were reduced to zero.
Looks like running AdBlock on Slashdot and turning off ads may soon be the cause of their demise...
The representative for HB060 is Curt Webb from Logan UT. Seems odd as his area is not remotely close to UTOPIA or Google Fiber. Looks like someone someone found a disinterested politician who doesn't know any better to push this bill?
While what he did was breaking the law by revealing information he was sworn to protect...I figure give him a slap on the wrist. Call him guilty on all charges...and then give him 500 hours of community service and let him on his way. The NSA on the other hand...needs to be reigned in and the government needs to have better checks and balances. Where is our recourse when all 3 branches agree and engage in unconstitutional behavior?
That's not true. A WD TV Live box only needs to find the SMB shares on your network or any DLNA devices...and it will start compiling a media library for you. Bonus are the web apps for Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, etc.
