Great. Now put Latitude back in Maps where it belongs!
What I want is all video, sound, script playing in all tabs to be always suspended, except when I explicitly permit them to operate. Just confining them to a tab is not sufficient, because you can be watching a video in a tab and have the sound cluttered up by one to three commercials auto-running on the same page. (And I'm not talking about pr0n sites -- certain news sites have been especially annoying lately.)
People still browse the internet with the sound on? That's so... nineties.
He could also tax them to the point where they all leave. Problem solved.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the mayor who has an industrial air conditioner blowing into his limo so it's nice and chilly when he gets in?
Wait... isn't contacting the cops what they're *supposed* to do?
The machines that receive pop cans and bottles and (if you're *very* lucky) print a receipt that you can use to claim the deposit, found extensively at supermarkets in Oregon, *still* boot up with a Windows 98 (not SE) splash screen. They're so unreliable that people consider the deposit as an additional tax and just throw the cans away instead of trying to get their deposit back.
My last two jobs were both still using 3270 terminal emulators to connect to CICS systems. I understand that's still fairly common in both government and industry.
I'd rather just not bring the phone in the first place.
Back when I did this sort of thing, cell phones were only owned by doctors and hedge fund managers.
But that doesn't stop the phone from recording, or disable the camera and microphone. Or wifi (to break into private networks within the cage).
(but seriously) my company issues smart phones as work phones, so there's no issue with using them. As long as you're not using them for pr0n.
A relative works for a company where IP is a sensitive issue, and the phone they issue him has no camera. Which, as I understand, is becoming harder and harder to find these days.
Sure, I'll give you my name and tell you I violated company policy. That can't end badly.
Now that we've split off Photos from Google+, let's split off the GPS support into a separate product, ok? Or maybe bundle it into Maps where it belongs? We could call it LATITUDE.
It depends on whether a machine is one on which I do work for which I get paid, or not. My main workstation, which is the source of my income, warrants a very conservative update approach. I was very slow in leaving XP, and with a mature, stable Windows 7 environment, I'm in no hurry at all to adopt another version of Windows. Yeah, like everyone else I've seen the popups inviting me to upgrade to Windows 10. You first. I can't afford to be down while I figure out why things aren't working or figuring out where Microsoft hid certain buttons this time.
I will sometimes install a new version on a spare machine just to see where technology is heading, and acquaint myself with what I will eventually have to deal with, but that's a lower priority. I'm not really interested in spending half my life doing upgrades and figuring out what broke.
Hm. That sounds like grounds to find a new server team.
