I, for one, can't wait for my new superpowers!
What an unfortunate nickname...
The reason people lock down their wireless are as follows (preaching to the choir, I know): 1) Bandwidth caps (and/or pay-per-use models) 2) Personal security (I don't want someone having access to my information on my network) 3) Legislation (if I allow someone to access my Wi-Fi, I could be held responsible for any illegal activies that the 'someone' participates in) This is like saying everyone should unlock their doors in New York so I can have access to free running water whenever I need it - nevermind their ability to now steal all my crap and void my insurance. Pie in the sky BS.
My God, this summary is terrible....
10% of income earners in Africa live in palaces?
My point!!! Not my point!!!
Is everyone going to laugh if I admit I have no idea what WUWT is? Sigh.... and just as I was about to leave the computer and go outside....
At the risk of sounding like a denier, I'm not going to freak out just yet, since it says in the article (and partially in the summary) that this is believed to happen every 150 years or so, last time being 1889.
fuck the olympics. It's become exactly what it isn't supposed to be: a corporate circle-jerk to exploit potential for advertising revenue. The athletes come second, if they are lucky.
Even the highway cops in Super Troopers knew that you have to test your equipment!
I'm all for the purging of everything that is flash, as well. But as long as there is content out there based on it, I wouldn't mind the option of being able to view it.
When playing Youtube videos, are you sure they are flash, or HTML5? I have Android 2.1 on my Samsung Galaxy S, and YouTube works without the ability to install a flash player. Forgive my ignorance if I'm missing something
"All of which makes one believe that maybe Steve Jobs was right to eschew Flash in lieu of HTML5 on the iPhone and iPad." Or perhaps this just means this is the first iteration of the Android OS to attempt Flash compatibility and it obviously needs more time to mature? I hate flash as much as the next guy, but with as much content as there is out there that is based on Flash, if Android gets it working properly, it will be a big advantage over the iPhone OS.
It was also invented so that Chruch would retain all of a priest's assets after he died, if he had any. No children to pass anything down to.
I always thought it was pronounced plan-eh-arium.
