That is a pretty arbitrary distinction. Steve Jobs said in 2003 'to get back in the PDA business, we would have to get in the the cell phone business'. An iphone is more PDA than cellphone.
I never thought we would still be calling our pocket computers 'phones'
Allowing only business people to sit on these boards means they inevitably ignore the commons in favor of business. We need someone to chair the FCC that understands that internet connectivity should be regulated as a utility and the only way to make more profit is to offer faster service. The bare minimum of service is 1 GB/sec (just like 240v/120v standard electric service). If you cant provide that level of service, you dont get right-of-way. Further, this person needs to re-instate the rules of old where is you transmitted media you couldn't own the media you were transmitting. NO business person is ever going to do that. We need the heads of our nation to represent the people, not represent them with progress through profit.
WRONG. Surveilling is not stalking and NOT ILLEGAL, its inducement of fear that is what makes stalking a crime.
You need an AppleID too.
There is no LEGAL licensing restriction that prohibits you from building a Hackintosh. Trying to sell hackintoshes is another matter.
Firewire would be ideal.
Actually, intel stopped shipping 'stock' fans with the high end chips (Socket 2011). They expect you to buy it separate. They offer their own model for it, but its an addon.
Bay Trail is growing fast. Amazon hasnt been able to keep the Bay Trail NUCs in stock for months. The Dell Venue 8 is selling so well they stopped offering discounts on it. Atom is ready for some workstation loads now. Hell I've done handbrake conversions on my Bay Trail NUC.
Lawyers love the Law more than they love Truth. Until such a time as they learn that constantly hacking at the law is bad for society, they will continue to be vilified.
Sailing is not a sport, its an activity. Sailboat RACING might be a sport, but putting around on your boat is not.
You are a fool, life in a modern society should not be a competition. So what if we lower the bar, ITS SO MORE PEOPLE CAN GET PAST IT. Big fucking deal. Why do you care if the world becomes more inclusive? We dont need extreme competition at every level of life.
Mad Men summed it up well after the lawn mower incident. The partners decide his career is over because he will no longer be able to golf.
Every single citizen should be able to donate a LIMITED amount of money politically, and the money can only come from their personal accounts. Corporations should be forbidden to donate to politics at all, with heavy and severe corruption charges for anyone that does it.. If a corporation wants to flex its citizen power, its members can do so directly, but it should not be allowed to focus and amplify.
As long as society keeps its veneer, its ok to trample anyone, amirite?
