My 73 year old mother no longer gets hit by annoyware, malware, and other Internet annoyances now that she has been on her Chromebook. She loves it, and I do too since I don't need to service it any more.
I already made a time machine with my 4D printer ten years from now long ago
I could see "printing" at a retailer, office supply, postal center, etc. sooner than buying one
OMG, will anybody get this joke?
There is a rock that orbits the sun which is well known to contain easily extracted minerals. And it is big. With a circumference of about 22,000 miles it contains vast amounts of minerals. The really great up-side to it is that it has an atmosphere which we can survive in (at least in the short-term). So mining operations should be fairly cost effective.
You are standing at the end of a road before a small brick building.
Around you is a forest. A small stream flows out of the building and
down a gully...
Sorry, but what the NSA is doing and wants to continue to do, violates the 4th Amendment clear and simple. Any legislation passed cannot trump the 4th Amendment no matter how you slice it.
The solution is to pass a new Constitutional Amendment. Here is my proposal: "In the name of National Security, this Amendment allows the Government to do whatever the fuck it wants to do. This includes, but is not limited to, pissing on the 4th Amendment. Oh, except, the 2nd Amendment. Nope. Can't touch that."
There ya go. Now you can spy as much as you want.
Google "[city-name-here] Internet Service" and the ads are a popn'. Yesterday, for me, I Googled "Reno, NV Internet Service". Up comes a variety of ads. When I look at the details for DSL by AT&T and Cable by Charter, they both have rates per month for the first year. That is of course trying to discover the Internet only, non-bundled, service.
Next to the monthly price for the first 12 month is an asterisk. I look for the footnote to possibly discover a link to the "regular" pricing, but that was not to be found.
So, FCC, come on, get with the damn program. Yes, work out the whole Net Neutrality thing, but let's start with the basics: providing an easy to discover (I mean OBVIOUS) listing of their rates. Then they can say "Rates from $34.95 for the first 12 months. That's a $30/month savings off the regular price of $64.95"
When you can find a pricing table, which I did a couple of years ago for COMCAST in Seattle. I discovered the lowest rate was $20 a month less than ANY other rate. I think it may have been accessed with the link "Click here for our 'Ebola, HIV, Syphilis, Leprosy, Firday the 13th, get shot in the face' plan".
Hey,what's that in front of my car. Just a sec, Slashdot, I might need to
Thank you for posting this tech story. Now stop worrying about those darn times in Apple ads. I can go to bed tonight and finally get some sleep,
I'm proud to have blue eyes! C'mon blue eyed people! Stand up with me and be proud.
No offense, Tim, and other gay people, but I don't care that you are gay in the same way that I don't care that Bill Gates is a Heterosexual.
My phone is a prepaid verizon flip phone. I do have a $100 Moto G, but I use that as a "Tablet" with WIFI where available, and I never use it as a phone (with Google's Hangout/Google Voice, I can send/recv. texts).
I do like the flip-open to answer, and the flip-close to hang-up on my little Samsung Gusto.
shpx lb h!
If it does, I need to change my answer.
