that seems like an awful lot of effort, for very little gain, other than to show that you can be an ass. What's the point?
To be honest, I don't know exactly how it works, I suspect that it looks for *any* BT MAC, not just a headset. Phone, PDA, Laptop, Tablet, iPod and then uses that for the calculation.
Unfortunately, general purpose application developers have to cater to the lowest common denominator in order to get wide spread use of their software.
Employees need to get over it, and understand that a second line is a blessing.
I work as a Corporate Store Manager for Bell in Canada, and 90% of my peers carry a single device, and use the same device for work and personal. Bell supplies the line, and they bully vendors into supplying the hardware. Of the 40 or so managers in town, and several hundred sales reps, every single one of use that has been around for longer than 3 months (policy change) carries a Bell supplied line.
I carry my Bell supplied line (BB z10), as well as a personal line (Galaxy Note 2) daily when I am at work, although I tend to leave the Note in my jacket pocket, in the stock room. None of my peers, none of my staff, and none of my superiors have my personal line number, outside of HR, in my employee file.
Conversely, I leave the z10 in the same jacket pocket when I am home, or out and not working.
Work / Life balance is far more important to me than a little bit of extra weight in a pocket.
Windows to anything else, usually Debian, but my primary laptop has been OSX for the last year, with Debian running in a very rarely used VMWare instance.
Windows 8 Pro on another laptop, Debian on everything else, Ubuntu on my Galaxy Nexus, for shits and giggles.
Why on earth would someone update software like this on production systems, instead of testing it in a lab environment first?
Anyone that knocked 80% of our servers offline by applying this patch would be packaged out the next day.
Where were you ?
I was on slashdot when 9/11 happened, and I fail to see how in it's own way slashdot is not a very, very old (in internet years) form of social media.
higher density at 10K would still give tremendous rewards though.
Admittedly, it would just be a stop gap, eventually SSD will be everything, I get that, but in the mean time I would like to see Seagate and WD do what they do really well, rather than give us half baked solutions like these hybrid drives.
