The Industry is not about saving the planet or doing the right thing, it this all makes too much sense for politicians to understand.
Too many People = Too many Problems. Doesn't matter what we do or say, as long as population remains in the Billions and growing we are Doomed!
I'm sure most people know that every bit of their life is tracked. With all the technology that exists, the government knows more about you than you know about yourself.
There is a good reason why Degrees are expensive and everyone wants one, otherwise whats the point! I've been in IT since the early 80's and I struggled for years tryng to get a goog paying job without a degree. It doesn't matter what you know, for most businesses they have to sift through hundreds of applications, and they start by looking at your qualifiactions first and throw the rest away. Once I got my BA in IT I landed a good IT job a month after graduation, proof is in the pudding! Get a degree or suffer the same fate as everyone else at the bottom!
Unfortunately in the world we live in today, not having a degree will put you at the bottom of the list for employment. There are too many other IT people out there looking for work that have degrees and skills, employers don't have time to assess your knowledge, they want proof on paper. No degree? then freelance your skills like millions of other people.
Tapes are cheaper and more reliable. A single 800GB tape costs us $25 and when it's full we put it in storage for several years. Hard Drives are prone to failure, costs more and take up more space.
Like soo many great new inovative technologies that could change the world for the better, it will never see the light of day!
I wishi to Boldly go where no man has gone before! Is that reason enough?
People there will still use that land for farming regardless of the radiation. Expect a bunch of mutant babies from Japan.
If Honeycomb was not designed for Phones then I doubt anyone would use it on a phone. Had Google released the source for Honeycomb it would have been used on many low end tablets. My guess is Google only wanted honeycomb on a few tablets they knew they could get revenue from.
If there is no alternative then their isn't much you can do, but if DSL is available in your area I would make the switch!
Anyone using ComCast for their ISP, look for an alternative because it's guaranteed they throttle your bandwidth! Send them a message and maybe they will stop this Internet Control!
These new innovative technologies never hit the Market for consumers. I've been reading Slashdot for years and I can't remember how many new technologies were invented to better our lives, I have yet to see any of them.
BB users have been accustomed to clunky slow phones with limited features. I remember speaking with a prior BB user who told me how they loved their phone, but after showing them my Android phone and all it could do; they weren't too enthused about their BB afterwards. Eventually they ditched their BB phone for an iPhone and wished they had done so much sooner.
So how is waiting 2-3 weeks going to fix things? People are flocking away from WebOS because of it's lack of support, and with Android for Touchpads just around the corner, I feel HP's decision will be too late! They need to decide now, or the user base will decide it for them!
