if microsoft surface could run linux, all netbooks and ultraportables discussion would go to the place they should have been for a long time: the garbage.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
> So you have 2 people who think differently and thinking the other is wrong. Which one is? Who knows! Its easy in hindsight of course.
don't appear to be easy in hindsight either because gnome 3 still stand by all the bad choices users complained back then....
also I'm sure there were some hundreds of people saying that 4 were wrong...
so the new generation uses the internet just like the old generation did with AOL?
boy I'm happy to be the current generation!
it's easy to test this hypothesis.
kill all gut bacteria from fat people and see if they thin in some cases.
and since in the usa almost everyone takes massive doses of antibiotics for even bad hair day, i think this is debunked with readily available data already.
the people dumping the money into campaigns. In this case you can clearly see that the buyers for the spectrum are the ones deciding, since every item listed will result in the government buying services from them.
"here is 40billion to buy this pipe. but you have to promises to use it to pay to deliver water via that pipe to those places where i plan to install said pipe"
i have fios. it is coax cable on the street. then on the post near my house it is split into fiber. the fiber goes to my place into a very big box, with two Verizon emblazoned power supplies! and become cable again to a cable modem...
the only explanation i have for this insanity is that if they advertised it as cable, i, who only pay for internet, would be allowed by law to have access to basic cable channels unencrypted. so they do this turnduckey of cables just to avoid it, and force me to pay $20/mo for basic cable.
and the only explanation i have for them dropping it is either that nobody pays that 20, like me. or that they finally got rid of the laws that force them to provide free unencrypted basic cable for cable internet customers.
you should have read the warning when you selected the 64bit installer. same happens with firefox and chrome.
the very own article is about GOOGLE NOT FIXING THE CODE.
all the bug reports were closed BY GOOGLE over christmas! even the ones with patches attached! open source my ass.
not reading the article is a tradition on slashdot, but you went the extra mile, haven't you?
even google's nexus one, is still stuck on 2.3
any and every android update is a new OS install.
android has paritions. a new update, is simpy a new image they unzip on those partition and apks they install.
a new update could even decouple the browser apk pretty easily. just remove it from the system partition and install the base one.
fix requires disposal of old hardware, with all it's heavy metals. Then purchase of new $600 hardware which will have to be replaced again in 2yr for the same reason. You have the option of paying only $200, but then you will get a device that will only last 6months until it can't take new updates.
Android total cost of ownership: $300/yr.
sony pictures tried to keep me out of the data i bought for them in the form of movie cassettes unless i bought their betamax player. Then they tried to take the data i bought from them unless i bought i laserdisc player. Then they realized they couldn't not bait me because dvds were smaller, so they tried with something smaller than dvs, but i was too smart to fall for minidisc. Then they tried with a mp3 player named after their old walkman that only played their format and was not a usb mass storage like all the others (what do they take me for? an apple customer? insulting). Later they tried with blueray. and this time they at least sold licenses for players from other brands and are managing to keep lots of other people away from their media.
now only if the hackers would hack my betamaxes and laserdiscs i bought from sony pictures and release it for me.
well, since you linked to it from an article on a mass media... am i to believe it's content? or to doubt there was any biography published in the first place... or that mr cronkite even existed?
this is getting meta too fast.
why would any streamer use this? this is clearly to try to force people to use donations to go directly to their steam wallet or whatever this is called.
gabeN is the antichrist. so he probably will pull that off.
but unless they have nice overlays, console support, any game support... well, i guess everyone can still play bejewled or something, select the option to share desktop and alt tab to league of legends...
the article even mentions "after reading about the company on slashdot" when telling how the company was founded.... and again, slashdot post about that company as news...
