They make great hardware, but getting rid of Nitro PDF is particularly annoying, it UAC's more than once, plus Sugar Sync, which even having on our systems violates a client agreement. Crapware needs to die, and die now. I do my best to work from a factory image, hardware seems to be so much easier to deal with that way, but Lenovo makes it quite an annoyance.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Not every method of buying honey includes a lot of labels.
when she was only about six months old.
She loved it, I had never heard you weren't supposed to give it to babies, and now that she's 12 she still likes it. I can can get on-board with this theory.
Of course that's been counted by the fact they won't let you pull the friggin battery anymore.
These enforceable, bright-line rules will ban paid prioritization, and the blocking and throttling of lawful content and services.
With that wording in place it opens the door to define the legality of content and regulate accordingly.
and the result was unexpected Twins.
Using Ubuntu and Android do cause that to happen.
I'm with this guy, I've had nothing but nightmares from ATI historically, can't say I've given modern AMD a chance, but nVidia works so well I have little motivation to.
which is why we just finished out our Vista roll-out last week!
every HTTP request goes to a site that has nothing to do with goats!
It has nothing to do with packet discrimination and everything to do with being in control. Best case scenario is having such a plethora of providers to pick from that garbage can be avoided easily. Right now the carriers lobby and receive regulation that prevents competition which creates the illusion that laws need to be passed to protect consumers from packet discrimination. In reality if you got rid of competition barriers carriers would be afraid to throttle because they know we'll pack up our bits and move.
It's not up to the corporation to create a level playing field. It's up to the government to stop creating barriers to competition.
The arguments being made for Net Neutrality are not for Neutrality but control. The Pro "Neutrality" angle is a government dominated Internet, the anti-Neutrality angle is a corporate dominated one. There's not much of a difference considering how hard it is to tell the difference between the two. Real net neutrality is a level playing field without government protectionism (which we have tons of at the moment) and the ability to purchase whatever we want and there's real repercussions for companies that attempt to fuck over the users because the users have another option.
Wait - you're still stalking me? My personal racist caller, always figured you found something better to do with your life.
I guess working for a self proclaimed Hispanic company doesn't dull that attack any - no sir! Couldn't possibly have anything to do with 12 Spanish channels my family and I have no interest in being crammed into the lowest tier while stuff like the NASA channel which is free in every way but cable tier is one up.
If anything the cable company is racist - Hispanics get everything on the lowest tier while the majority English speakers have to pay extra to get something other than Home Shopping Networks and MSNBC along with some useless local stations.
And it's just getting worse. There's been articles here on Slashdot about how carriers "tune" channels for quality on the shared data pipe. SciFi, Discovery, the nature type channels that all benefit the most from good quality get the low tuned down shit, but never mind, the Home Shopping Network is always 1080P and max bps.
I haven't had cable of my own or satellite in years and I frankly don't miss it. Every time I'm at a friends or relatives and I see definitive examples of said channel tuning and all the Spanish networks being on the lowest paid for tier while even channels that are free streaming over the web and on terrestrial satellite being on upper tiers it doesn't soften my feelings towards cable companies.
