Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
here in Canada we aren't in extreme debt too, not sure what Spain is doing even building these. Spain is having a rather significant financial crisis the last few years.
They just want to be like Merica! Someone tell them that they can just keep borrowing from China indefinitely.
Hell to the yeah.....and if I sort by name, why should it sort the apps with icons a-z and then also sort folders in the start menu a-z as if they're separate items?
BTW, #6 should be punishable by repeated papercutting over a 2-week period in a lemon-juice pool. This is the same reason I rarely install and update itunes on any computer regardless of the fact that I find it to be the most useful music app period.
Why is it that we in IT have people that are so resistant to change instead of being the change advocates we need to be? As users start using the technology we support differently, it's up to us to find a solution, not to force the user to use the technology differently. To think that users will not change how they use technology is naive, at best.
Because of the laws of physics: shared collision medium, higher latency, etc.
ditto, a thousand times.......the physics of the wireless medium, especially on ***UNLICENSED*** spectrum does not change just because you want it to function differently, so please stop pushing that rhetoric. I gladly put wireless where business requires it but I also do not allow the user to develop unrealistic expectations as to how it can be used. I don't plan on being the guy that tells Steve Jobs "sure, you can run your demo on 802.11 while in a room full of interfering devices, I don't see a problem with that!"
Anyone who needs to pull boatloads of data needs to sit the hell down
Sure, in May 2011. The idea is that, moving forward, let's not have to sit down. Let's be able to pull, process and use that boatloads of data on the go.
When you develop 802.11z which utilizes different frequencies and gets you the bandwidth you need on a channel scheme that mitigates interference among the hundreds of people that share the space you want to connect in, let us know. Until then, trust the network engineers in the discussion that explain what you want is not always feasible, at any cost. 802.11n will not fix the problem, though it does help. It is also expensive and still inherently not in the same category of wired networking for all of the same reasons that every other version of wireless networking has always lagged behind the wired LAN.
