Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Any application that requires Windows XP Mode, SUA, or more than 16 GB of RAM will work only on Windows 7 Pro and Ultimate according to this table.
So... some video editing programs won't be able to access more thatn 16 GB RAM on home? Some business applications may work better on the XP virtual machine (XP Mode) than in the native 7? SUA won't be coming with Windows anymore as it has been deprecated, so perhaps that should count. However, could you not run Cygwin instead?
So does any application that is accessed remotely through Remote Desktop.
That seems rather convoluted way of stating that you cannot access the computer through Remote Desktop and would have to install vnc or something to do it...
They probably added that functionality to try to identify copies made of files borrowed from those libraries. When all you borrowed is data, there's no way to prove you didn't copy the data.
Yeah, except the DRM prevents you opening the file after it has expired. (At least for most people, I don't know if it has been cracked.)
Right, but that's not what the OP was talking about - the argument was that the iPod was inferior because you couldn't organise your music manually (even though you actually can), and that "files in in a folder" was superior to "letting the iPod handle where the files are and using a database/m3u style method" to address and play them was somehow inferior because Apple.
What you are describing with m3u files *is exactly how the iPod works*. The only difference is that the iPod also copies the music files for you, you don't have to drag them onto the iPod yourself (although you absolutely can manage them on your hard drive yourself, despite what people on slashdot will try to tell you).
OP said: "Ever noticed every MP3 player on the market can be plugged into your computer and you can browse the music files as if it were an external hard drive"
Your interpretation of this is curious.
Percentage wise he made less than 0.40%!!! The Nikkei stock exchange went up 57% in 2013 in Japan but he only made 0.40% (yes, you see that correctly, less than half of one percent) so no I will not back down from my statement that he is an idiot with ADD. The article does not state how big his trading account is so I had to use the $15 billion total figure for my calculation but nonetheless I'm safely assuming that he must be trading with a few hundred million dollars alone to reach trillions in trading volume.
Why is that a safe assumption? 15000000 / 54000000 = ~278. Thus one 54 million trade a day is way more than enough to get high trade volume. 41 trades one million dollar each a day would also be enough. I would guess the actual trade amount would be somewhere between those values.
Unless I managed to fail my calculations.
Well yes, but when you have several devices, the easy pairing is rather nice feature. And no, it's not 'whatever form of NFC', the payment video had a standard NFC capable reader.
"NFC offers a low-speed connection with extremely simple setup, and can be used to bootstrap more capable wireless connections." See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N...
I guess that drops iPhone from consideration, as my NFC enabled speakers and headphones would lose their point.
Right. Which was about a third of the country, and precisely the people that would have voted the other way.
If I recall correctly, based on the polls before all this happened, more than 50% of those areas were happy to stay Ukrainian. Of course, voting while armed pro-Russians stay around the see-through ballot boxes might have skewed the final results (as happened in Crimea). However, they didn't allow the voting to happen, so the point is moot...
"the encryption keys will be stored off-shore" is different from "the encryption keys will be stored off-shore for ever"
Indeed, as you need the key every time the data is read...
It may take some time for people in EU to realize their gas prices going up. When they do see the bill rise, they will blame Russia easily enough.
I think you have this backwards. I believe it is a question on how dangerous/blameful Europe sees Russia, and exactly how big the bill from switching the supplier will be...
His manner is coarse
It's not "coarse", it's abusive. Namecalling, mocking, ridicule, hyperbole. That's abuse.
If you read the message, you may have noticed that he called the code shit, not any person coding it. Same with all other colorful language. I wouldn't get offended.
