We are not the Government's children, we are citizens. You completely lose all credibility with that line. Defiance is not always a legitimate excuse to swing the hammer of the state harder.
This is the problem. It should not be illegal to provide an untraceable communication system..
Try a Bay Trail device before you poo-poo x86 mobile.
A mobile 'desktop' has its uses. I LOVE having an 8" tablet that can act as a server or AP if i need it to. No website ever tells me 'not available on mobiIe'. I bought it to make up for any bullshit deficiencies my ARM based mobiles devices might have, like transferring files to each other.
Because I have an 8" x86 tablet that can run more software than any ARM tablet ever made.
The problem is that this solution isnt really commercially viable. Sure you will get some shops using it to reduce their safety liability vector, but for the most part its just too expensive. Each stop costs SIGNIFICANT($70+) replacement costs and it false stops more than an acceptable amount.
TO be fair, on your last point, Mavericks multi-monitor support really is a huge step up from the past. Being able to extend the desktop to Apple TV is a nice feature and works very well. The Mavericks multi-mon is definitely a step above Windows right now. Full Disclosure: I have Linux, Win 7, Win 8, Steam OS, and OSX on my desk right now. Every machine has a dedicated GPU.
The 'air' can only hold so much data. If you have an wireless Access Point on one network and I have an Access Point on another, we split the available 'air' bandwidth. The room can only hold so much data, and everyone shares the frequencies regardless of the network configuration.
Laptops have had them forever. 'First' is completely subjective in this case.
Humidity sensor is usually packaged with a temperature sensor, (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1638) so its not that strange that they used it. Hell it might have been there for previous versions and they only exposed it via software in the S4.
I really enjoy when CC and the words diverge slightly. It exposes how people interpret differently.
Taxes are the taking of money by force, under the color of law. It could definitely fit your definition.
You are the kind of person that thinks it ok to pay for parking in city/county parks. Instead of making sure its part of the commons, it has to generate revenue. Tourist taxes are plain robbery by the local government.
Why would I learn to be an architect, there are buildings everywhere......
So thats what people meant by their ' ad infested site'. The link in the email must take you to some ad dump, before letting you continue.
