why has Apple never gotten into this business?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Inglorious Netscape days, or sneaked in by some saboteur into Mozilla/Firefox?
I thought the new, hip thing to do was blame it on your contractors.
the 16 GB of storage on the iPhone is typically filled with music
I've yet to see any studies saying that's typical. Possible? Yes. I wouldn't say typical. However, just to play along, let's say it is typical. The space allocated for applications is for the individual to decide. The individual has ~16 GB to arrange applications, music and video. As it's being reported in the article, the space allocated for applications is set by the manufacturer.
There is a difference between "I only need this much space for applications" and "I only have this much space for applications."
What happens to all the folks (us?) who have been gloating over the security of our Macs, Linux, smartphones etc. when these apps get broken? Time to eat crow?
The moment you believe securing your system is not an issue, that's exactly when it becomes an issue.
As Windows and Mac user, I don't trust either of my systems to be any more secure out-of-the-box than I can throw them. You don't get to ignore any responsibility for your system's security and have the privilege of being a link-clicking blind-downloader simply because you picked the "more secure" computer.
This weekend, when my wife and I needed to get out for a little bit, we gambled and saw it. To my surprise, I didn't hate it. In fact I enjoyed it. I wouldn't say it's the best movie of the year or going to sweep the Academy Awards like I've heard from some, but it was very well done.
Don't get me wrong, I still criticize the movie. Specifically the design of some of the wildlife (some of the designs just seemed to vary from impractical to unnecessary). There were some things that just seemed "alien for the sake of alien".
Yes, it's a "going native" film like Dances with Wolves (even Cameron said that was part of his inspiration) but it really does stand on it's own.
I don't follow. How would it make Abbott a hypocrite if he opposes internet filtering?
I believe the GP meant to imply that proclaiming oneself as Catholic and speaking out against censorship could somehow mark one a hypocrite. I assume the anticipated knee-jerk reaction would consist of "He says he's a Catholic, but he doesn't want your children to be safe on the Internet" or something along those lines. I suppose the natural response would be "The responsibility falls to the parent, not the Government", though that doesn't win over as many voters as one would like.

Yikes. I hope he wasn't posting from a Fios connection.
I got the Kingston v-series 64M for around $120--I think it's only rated around 100MB. Still feels a lot faster, especially after boot-up.
UNIX is simple, but you have to be a genius to understand the simplicity.
I clicked "Media". I stopped looking for information when I saw the picture of the old man "researching" Megan Fox.
Can't you just install a clean OS?
C'mon. This is China. It's not like you can just walk to a street corner and get a copy of XP.
Most times, Stan's method of "writing" was letting the artist dictate what happened on the pages and going back and writing the dialogue to fit the scene, maybe giving one or two plot points. Anything he actually tried to write completely by himself was horrible.
"...the iPhone makes it far too easy..."
Need a mistrial? There's an app for that.
