Sadly survivors with guns will dominate the scenery. Anyone who can farm skills will be important but dominated by unskilled morons.
The film must have been a reference to a section of an Adams story where a survey marker was placed on earth to mark the center of the universe. IIRC
It's a rock! It takes a pretty stoned mind to call it Australia. And Tasmania misses out again!
3D printers will be attractive to consumers when they are sub$500 AND provide quality prints quickly. People take print time into account along with price so if it takes hours to print an object that they can buy over the counter, people will just buy over the counter and avoid the hassle of a machine thumping away for hours. My prediction has always been that 3D printing will be done in a shop front or via mail order. This latest unit is just taking advantage of the dissatisfaction with the current crop of consumer printers, and may not actually live up to the promises.
MS has offered upgrades at a reduced cost, it has supported it for about a decade, if people hold onto it, they do so at their own peril. Who holds onto a photocopier for ten years and expects spare parts? Yes I own an old laser printer and sadly, if it breaks I don't expect to have spare parts available. The devil inside me says that people are also holding on to XP because many machines could be activated with the same code, or even without a code in the case of many laptops supplied with a restore CD.
Jail breaking automobile software, yer, there's a recipe for disaster!
I want my DVD and not be dependant on streaming through a dodgy telco network. I can use a DVD anytime and play it many times without additional cost, I can lend it out and get it back, and not depend on a company like Netflix staying in business.
I'm a good programmer, and I have friends too.
beef cycles water, else they would explode! they give a lot of the water back as sweat, and urine, etc. Running cattle on desert is stupidity, almost as stupid as people who believe that turning everyone to vegan would not bring on it's own sowing, fertiliser, and irrigation problems. They should also sight the origin of the water use research as it seems to be a vegan resource that pops up constantly, i.e. have the details been peer reviewed? Where would our woolly jumpers come from?
bzzzzzt, wrong! my gen 4 iPod touch can't be upgraded to iOS 7. or are you trying to say iPAD?
free vs. commercial, free with cheap hardware will win every time.
from vision and personal experience, most people wearing masks don't wear them correctly. This includes nurses, builders and people trying to get protection from the rest of us. It's not not just Chinese, it's everywhere. Also, most masks just keep out dust, not fumes or virus, the good ones are more expensive.
monthly fees vs. old fashioned whole game purchases, it works out about the same.Hardware costs have decreased, I don't want(cough) high end graphics now and so a PC is cheaper than 10years ago, and the screens are bigger.
“Secure Transport failed to validate the authenticity of the connection. This issue was addressed by restoring missing validation steps,” the Apple advisory says.
The wording of the description is interesting, as it suggests that the proper certificate-validation checks were in place at some point in iOS but were later removed somehow. The effect of an exploit against this vulnerability would be for an attacker with a man-in-the-middle position on the victim’s network would be able to read supposedly secure communications. It’s not clear when the vulnerability was introduced, but the CVE entry for the bug was reserved on Jan. 8."
Gosh, an OS that mimics another GUI? Would never happen in the 'west'?
