That's patently false. The digital switch was a knife to the back of anyone using an antenna. I can tell you first hand at our cabin - we got about 20 channels. Since the digital switch, none of them work. When it was analog, you might get a little static every now and then, but at least you'd get SOMETHING. With digital, you either get it, or you don't. There's nothing in between. That means if you were remotely on the edge of the signal before, you're getting nothing now. And I can tell you at least where we're at, the broadcast signal strength they're using for digital is significantly lower than it was before.

I work in a large IT organization. Our tech support deals with our customers. Exactly 0% of their training is geared towards selling the customer anything. And their bonuses are based 100% off customer satisfaction. Needless to say, our customers don't hate us - and we do more business with them because of it.

Which works great if you're writing all your own software, or are able to rely on nothing but open source. VERY few companies have that luxury, and FreeBSD/OpenBSD are a non-starter for anything you want vendor support on. RHEL and SLES on the other hand are almost universally supported by hardware and software vendors alike.

It's not a reasonable question, because it's not the topic at hand. If you want a virtual machine running linux, go get a virtual machine running linux. This is about backup services. Synology S3 integration isn't a VM on amazon with rsync, it's Synology making native S3 api calls.

No, crashplan isn't a vm running linux with rsync, it's a backup service. If you bothered to spend 30 seconds clicking on either link, you'd have seen that. Instead you started babbling about "serious backups" using rsync which is completely and utterly inferior to the crashplan or s3 option for 99%+ of Synology's target market.

Not really... Linux has basically 0 traction in the desktop market. There is OSX or Windows. OSX has basically 0 traction in the open systems server market, there is Windows or Linux. The various BSD distros have made noise every now and again from time to time, but they're an after thought, not a legitimate competitor (Solaris/FreeBSD/NetBSD/OSX/etc).

If they're smart, they'll take everything Blackberry had and then some. There's absolutely no reason they can't produce a better email experience interfacing with Exchange than any of their competitors have. There's STILL nothing that even comes close to the old Blackberry + BES + Exchange experience 10 years later, and that's sad.

100% this. Notice that Google announced Android Silver recently. All the sudden the head of that project gets fired, and Tizen mysteriously isn't shipping. The last time Samsung was "just about to ship", Google sold off Motorola and suddenly Samsung had delays.

It's absolutely Samsung's way of fighting back against Google pressure.
