Oh also it can act as a firewall as well (not saying much for its capabilities though)
Kind of defeats the cloud feature on Synology NAS doesn't it? Granted you should have it firewalled off except for the specific port it needs.
Not only that but a company that lets someone do that is shooting themself in the foot. Sooner or later 80 hour a week guy is going to leave, good luck getting someone that is
A: willing to do it coming in
B: not taking the job until something better comes along.
It's not a badge of honor, just an example of rationalization for a crappy job.
Which given enough time will do absolutely zero for accidents. The problem isn't the handsfree, it is the fact you have someone paying more attention to what is being said on the other side of the phone call than actually what is happening around them. Driving should take up 100% of your attention.
His point is still valid as an example of where things could go if left unchecked. Don't get all high and mighty as this is a Canadian-related thread.
Hobby built implies that you find someone with the talent and expertise to do the required fabrication.
3d Printed implies you find someone who can work a mouse and download a plan from a website.
Whole different paradigm
Have you seen the manufacturing byproducts for solar cells? Not exactly that environmentally safe.
Interesting thought though would be that if you have a content provider who is also your ISP, could that be considered monopolistic similar to what Microsoft went through with IE being included with the OS?
Sure but there also these things called pay phones. Not quite as common as they used to be but they are still around
They were treated like fashion accessories but not as much anymore. Apple has been its own worst enemy, they were so popular everyone and their grandmother has one so instead of being a fashion accessory they are becoming commonplace like zippers (expensive ass zippers). Ditto with Android.
Actually I think they are right. I don't wear a watch anymore as I have my smartphone. However if I was going to start wearing a watch it would be more like jewelry and fancy-schmancy.
BTW I still have a corded phone. Works well in a power outage/minor disaster (aka ice storm 99/Eastcoast blackout). I rarely use it but better to have and not need than to need and not have.
It's because they can't use their usual solution which is "you need to upgrade to the next version"
Strange, the first time you log on there is supposed to be a quick tutorial showing the hover features. I decided when I built my new computer to jump to 8.1. I wouldn't have jumped to 8 though but I have to say it's fine once you get used to the changes. I do admit some of the changes left me scratching my head but I am sure if moving to another OS I would have gone through the same familiarization. With that in mind, I could see this being a point where people choose to move elsewhere since it's almost the same learning curve.
Probably because at one point someone was looking at porn at work, a coworker sued for sexual harrasment and won.
None of his revelations were surprising. Granted there are probably some that got sadistic glee in doing the job but I am sure most are in it for a paycheck.
