I believe the point they are trying to make is that the PS3 is an aging platform that has very strange development requirements due to its hardware. It's odd that they can't get similarly good performance out of something that's the same commodity hardware as the performant Windows PC, when something so different (the PS3) works fine.
If you point out government waste or find out that the security practices required by the government contract were not met you can actually receive a % payment for the value of the difference won back in court. Try and work that route instead of just whistle-blowing. If you find the government was over-billed for services that weren't rendered (i.e. security) then you have a real case and there are official channels through which you can work.
This is a warning shot over the bow for Apple before the record industry tries to retaliate for the Beats/Apple Music subscription services' pay-out structure.
On what planet is Buzzfeed comparable to something like a television series?
This is like putting a farm chicken in a UFC tournament and then acting surprised that the prize fighter won.
Maybe compare television viewership, subscriptions, and ad sales broadcast via traditional means (i.e. cable) to television shows that are exclusively streamed via the internet (ala House of Cards, Community).
This is a non-story designed to make chump television advertisers feel like they aren't being conned.
I think your right in that it's also safe to say that the entire Windows Server ecosystem is going the way of
If you think government abuses is something limited to a concern of the left then you a totally out of touch with reality and the libertarian wing of your own (assumed) party.
"'sides, I'd get fired for Clarksoning their UI team."
I find the assertion by this CEO that women are going to be aided by this because they are somehow not as effective as negotiators to be really offensive.
Amazon lets you cancel orders while they're being processed. You'll surely get an e-mail confirming the order and price shortly after pressing the button.
Apple is worried that there will be no lines and that this will make the news, sending their stock price down.
So, they've created a highly-publicised reservation system to prevent any such news from being relevant.
Was I the only one who went to his site hoping for an Arduino mod for my dyson that will turn it into a liposuction machine?
I'll do it.
i think i spent about $500 on a 10gb model, once.
I'm a little surprised that they don't accept the rewards cards.
Why not have it randomly select a Starbucks store ID from the POS every time it processes a transaction at that location?
I've implemented a similar solution for one of my web apps.
It encrypts the data in the client with a password that they provide before it gets sent to the server. The client also decrypts the value when it receives it from the server.
The password is kept in LocalStorage (a feature of HTML5) so that it is never transmitted to the server.
Assuming the client application is not compromised, this is a great way to keep data secret even from the service operator.
Unfortunately, you won't see this scheme implemented in many apps because almost everyone's business model these days is all about scraping your data for use by advertisers.
