Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Verizon doesn't GSM lock their phones (for phones that are also GSM compatible). The bastards at Sprint, on the other hand, do GSM lock their phones.
Unlocked Moto G or Moto E are fairly inexpensive and they're more than adequate for what they do. If I were to go off contract, that's what I would do. I currently have an HTC One M8 on contract so I can't unlock it now, but it's not an issue for me since I still have a Nexus 4 for international travel and as a general backup phone.
Actually, the cheapest option up to now was the HTC Desire 510 (quad core A53). Second cheapest (Linux at least) would be Nexus 9 (Nvidia Tegra K1 Denver).
Disney Exec : I know, I know... Plus, our usual tactic of throwing money at them won't work, either; [b]Sony is in great shape financially.[/b]

Power Mac G4: Debian 8 runs like a champ. The latest Mac OS won't even install.
Tumblr is more awful than anything Apple puts out (or MS for that matter).
Does OpenBSD have ZFS support? No? Then I'm sticking with FreeBSD.
Press ctrl-D to bypass the initial long boot.
Do you have any benchmarks to back that up? The ones I see from SPEC pretty much has Intel dominating in FP (compared to what few Itanium and POWER results there are).
If they're made from someone else, the patient has to take immunosuppresive drugs. That sets them up for weird infections. If they're made from the patient's own cells, they'd still have to deal with the autoimmune response that destroyed the original beta cells in the first place (assuming type 1 diabetes).
Linux distribution? I'd go with Cyanogenmod.
Before switching to x86: x86 sucks ass! PowerPC all the way!
After switching to x86: x86 is awesome! Glad we don't have PowerPC anymore!
Never understood why anyone would buy this over a Tesla. The Fisker was heavier and way more expensive. If I wanted a range-extended hybrid-electric luxury car, I'd get the Cadillac ELR instead.
