We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
There are tons of options in the settings that allow you to restrict what apps have access to resources like geolocation, social media, contacts, pics, etc. I'm not too sure what you mean by allow us to decide what software we run to do so. Do you mean that the app store doesn't have enough variety for your tastes? It's a difficult juggling act to please your desire for a secure environment while at the same time allowing you to run any piece of untrusted/verified code out there. Personally, obviously I think, I'm happy with the balance now.
I haven't heard/read that. As I understood it, a different 3 letter govt agency (FBI was it?) was exploiting weaknesses in Firefox to track TOR users, but I don't believe the TOR network was "compromised by the NSA". I could be wrong though, I tend to not pay attention to conspiracies.
I actually found Google Health pretty useful, and my doctors were amazed when I pulled out that detailed medical history. They were able to easily cross reference CBC results & see trends easily. Microsoft HealthVault just doesn't compare in the ease of use & functionality that Google Health provided. I haven't been able to find a decent replacement for keeping medical records electronically stored since.
also, by having an actual cap on residential lines. Last I checked, it was something like 10TB/month to get the high usage letter.
Oh, and you can blame the netflix stuff on netflix not paying their share on peering.
to which the apple reviewer should simulate your app running on more than just one day/occurrence.. my experience has been mixed. New apps take forever to get approved for me, but updates are pretty quick, 3 days or so.
I don't really think this has anything to do with race, per say. The stop & frisks are based on location of high crime areas. If the majority of people in those high crime areas are of a certain race, then the stats will reflect that those people were more likely to be stopped. The problem is that the WHOLE thing is flawed. When you're making shit up to stop & frisk everyone in a dangerous neighborhood, you begin to harass citizens who have not done anything wrong, and are in no way suspicious just to pat the numbers up. Just my $0.02 as a longtime nyc resident.
Unless you're on a team, or part of a company with a developer license. You can develop an app without a dev license, including features that you do need a dev license to fully implement, such as PUSH or GPS. Sure, the testing is limited to the simulator (which has it's own limitations, obviously), but the development isn't. Provisioning/publishing is a whole 'nother story.
You need an apple for the frameworks, obviously. I believe the word I used was "develop". Without getting too much into semantics, write it, send it to your licensed dev for provisioning, signing, & publishing, done. Developed without a $100/yr fee, on your part.
