Whut up, yo? Mostly moved to Twitter... You have an account... why don't I see you there much?
I will quit reading Slashdot if that stupid Beta shit is implemented. It's horrible. It fixes nothing. It is not an improvement in any way.
Our ISP is in a distant rural area, and the peering point to which we connect is not one of the ones where Netflix peers. We need to cache; this is the situation that caches are for. But just as banks will only give you a loan if you don't need it, Netflix will only give you a server if you don't need it.
It's only a problem with Apple devices. Both Android and Windows devices are generic bluetooth. My Windows Phone (HTX 8X) works wonderfully with my VW, which connects via bluetooth for the phone part, and bluetooth audio for the music part. Works seamlessly. iPhones... not so much. As long as people use devices that conform to generic bluetooth standards, it's not a problem.
Do the best and the brightest know the difference between "lose" and "loose"?
I'm SO happy that I pay for software. I don't have to deal with all of this open source drama bullshit, and have to worry about when somebody's temper tantrum decides to end or radically change some software that I rely on for my business. My eyes glazed over halfway through the story summary, and I really don't care.
Hilarious article. Shuttleworth is giving himself entire too much credit. Is Apple is doing this, they won't be following his failure. They'll be following Microsoft's still-in-process move of trying to combine the two.
Requiring people to use upper body strength is probably considered assault by most Slashdotters. Nowhere have I seen more people complaining about not being able to pick up Gadget X or Gadget Y because the few pounds it weighs is overwhelming to their frail bodies.
. FACT: higher corporate taxes leads to reinvestment in the company, which leads to an expanding economy.
I can personally vouch for that. Absolutely.
Looking at the financial state of our Federal government, state governments, and local municipalities, it is entirely unfair to leave off the Republicans and Democrats from your list.
Republicans and Democrats generally don't use "refusal to pay taxes" as a plank in their platform/philosophy.
Only when it's voluntary will we be civilized.
Just curious, what does your Ayn Rand shrine look like, kiddo?
