I watch 3-4x as much TV since I got a DVR and could actually watch things on my schedule intead of theirs. Online video in various forms just ads to it. For once, I'm really glad of Sturgeon's Revelation - even 10% is too much!
Could Google glass be used in a HUD capacity to actually improve driving safety?
I use SplashID on my phone (and it's probably the single biggest usage of my phone). Don't get the current version though - 7 is pretty much unusable. I had to fall back to 6, which is usable, though not quite as simple as 4 was (I think that's what I upgraded to 7 from, which was a terrible mistake). Like the submitter, I refuse to use the cloud offerings (which SpashID has as an option now). A cell phone is a risk, but I choose to believe that I could change the passwords before the database could be cracked, and that my risk from malware is low because I don't install every shiny new app that comes along. I do so mostly because there really isn't a practical alternative at the moment.
Having implemented ipv6...bs. It does cost some time and effort, but it's not huge, particularly if you do it incrementally and dual stack. It's fear of change that's holding it back, not cost and effort, and as a result people are missing out on getting out from under that shackles that ipv4 puts around everything you do. But "the devil you know" rules in all too many cases.
1. Ignore the whole fiasco to start with
2. If it hurts their ratings because people can't get to the content, they'll learn...eventually
I subscribe to Slashdot and the local town paper's online version. For a while, I subscribed to the Maui online paper as well, as I have a friend there and would consider living there, but they overcharge for the little they provide and it wasn't worth it. I also contribute to wikipedia. Google is probably the most valuable site I use (how did we ever survive before them?!?), but they don't need any contributions from me
In most cases, I like what the summary called "nag wall": it's good for consumers as people can read shared links on sites they don't go to very often or may not have even heard of without the hassle of jumping the payment barrier every time they click on a link, and it's good for the site because people who have never heard of them find out about them.
But if you find yourself visiting a site regularly, it's time to think about supporting them. Ads would be ok if they weren't distracting, but since so many seem to think it's ok to get in the way of what you actually came to the site for, ad blocking is the only viable way to read the web these days.
The actual link is all there, it's just not showing it.
"Mozilla Firefox via add-on" - a start at least...
I'm hoping support for DANE will show up soon...
that's going to leave many readers unable to buy DRMed ebooks
Like that's a bad thing? Thank you Adobe for accelerating the move away from DRM!
...we won't talk about the fileserver it connects to
Any site that comes up with a list of a dozen or more sites that I have to permit requests (RequestPolicy) and scripts (NoScript) to function screams we're more interested in tracking you than providing a usable site. Next.
The question implies that EVs aren't successful, yet no one argues that hybrids aren't successful and EV sales are ahead of where hybrids were at a comparable point in their adoption. It takes a while to get people convinced to adopt something new.
It has to be a debit card; since Paypal stopped doing virtual cards, I don't know of any debit cards that do them any more. I have Discover and Citibank credit cards specifically because they do support them, though that doesn't help here.
And actually, they do brag about being PCI DSS certified in their "Security" section.
Which doesn't mitigate the fact that they are setting up a phishing gold mine: "click here to enter your debit card number and receive some free money!"
I specifically *avoid* the "News Feed" *because* it weeds stuff out. Maybe I'm weird, but I actually want to know what my friends have to say - that's *why* I'm on facebook. I don't want anyone else blocking stuff, especially when it does such a crappy job as facebook does, blocking way too much, yet not blocking the crap like "games people are playing" and "trending" that *facebook* sticks in there that I couldn't care less about.
And speaking of "anyone", one of the defenses against snooping through people's postings is "it's a computer not a person", meaning "no one will know what we find". When you get to a certain level of ai however, there's not a practical difference as far as the privacy issues people care about are concerned...
