Have we inherited this "power users" term from Windows or something? I remember those guys, always tweaking the GUI to optimise their workflow. Looks like some things never change.
Nuclear is expensive and needs a huge amount of public subsidy. Private industry doesn't seem to have found a way of doing it cost effectively. People also seem to have problems with it being a global solution to power needs, given all the jumping up and down about countries like Iran getting into nuclear power. Then there's handling of waste and water consumption, so it's hardly problem free.
The kid in the parallel universe was still dying, it's just that his character had worked out how to save him whereas the father in the parallel universe had been distracted just as he was about to hit on the solution.
I don't think playing eccentric characters says anything about the psyche of John Noble, probably more to do with casting agents etc. who need to fill the role of a crackpot.
Motorola Mobility does not pay but Motorola Solutions does pay. And didn't Google sell Motorola Mobility to Lenovo anyway? The point is that Google used patented code and left all Android vendors exposed.
There is no such thing as patented code.
I've always found the rootkit story an interesting one. There are a large number of third party DRM systems that have been in use on Windows over the years. This was just another one of them. Sure this one had some nasty side affects, but so do a lot of DRM systems that Windows has supported. As far as I'm aware this DRM did nothing on any other system. So why is Windows given a free pass on this one? It was designed to allow auto-install of software from CDs that were placed in the drive. Designed to be a DRM friendly system. So you you boycott Windows as well?
Yes you can, it lets you create managed accounts for kids.
Well if all the self-driving vehicles communicating with each other, they could easy make room for the tractor-trailer to turn at that busy intersection. That's the one big difference I can see with self-driving cars, the possibility of them knowing what neighbouring vehicles are doing: what speed they're going, what turn they're intending to make. You could end up with the situation where vehicles are collaborating in the same way that ants do.
It happened and it's worked fine for a long time, the problem is there is just no channel for the hardware and never has been. The high street chains where a lot of people go to get their hardware are effectively Windows only and when those Linux netbooks starting appearing Microsoft did a good job of making sure they stayed that way. With even Apple having to open their own chain of shops to get their hardware in front of people. Ubuntu just don't have the resources to open a huge chain of Ubuntu stores.
You might want to try watching her lo-fi let's play videos on YouTube where she plays through some 80's text adventure games them see if you feel the same way. That's where I first encountered her, without a clue that she was busy terrifying people elsewhere on the internet, she's far more a geek than a lot of self professed gamers. If anything I think she harks back to the era before the COD crowd came to dominate everything.
She was talking about gamers as a marketing demographic rather than as individuals who play games. The idea that there's a whiteboard in Activision somewhere with "GAMER" and a bunch of stereotypes written on it and they target/market their games at that demographic:
* likes violent games and rock music
* watches summer blockbusters
That this is not a true representation of people that play games and that this concept needs to go away and is going away. A lot of people seem to have read the article and gone, "How dare you, I represent that demographic!" rather than, "Yes, that's not us, stop treating us like morons".
I remember reading it and thinking it was inflammatory, but at the same time understood what it was saying. I guess everyone wants to have their turn at being offended and outraged.
Surely having multiple workspaces eliminates clutter? You make it sound like you're using a single workspace.
It's a new form of distribution, everyone gets a copy which is undeletable. They make money by charging for a removal tool.
Pretty much all Labour governments that have been elected would have had a majority even without the Scottish votes.
Isn't the first what we have to do already in the real world (though you missed out a Windows machine)? As for the second statement, it might be worth trying that experiment as you're likely to be surprised.
Does that mean today is World "I Forgot My Password" day?
