Thank you. It isn't that I can't, it isn't that I won't, it is "why should I spend more and more time doing what you want me to do to support your ideology, rather than what I think I need to do?"
Sure. On every fucking machine I work with, from now until doomsday, because why?
Right, because FLOSS. As if that were actually a reason.
The choices were between media being posted in every available codec or only approved FLOSS. So now, I get to watch 1/2 of what's available because someone doesn't like my choice of codec. That's true freedom.
"My computer runs well, does everything I want but I can't put the latest bells and whistles on it. Waaaaaahh."
The fact that you say that since you have an Intel Processor you should be able to run the latest OS means you don't know what you're talking about. Apple doesn't want your late night, drunken support calls, that's all.
Sure, and you can do that on an iPhone. It's called a web app. Maybe you've heard of them?
But that's not the same as reprogramming the stereo to play ads for a competing company TO TEH EXCLUSION of the OE. Which is what AdMob does.
They ban being required to put the stickers on while they are building the cars. And they REFUSE to let anyone else use their name. Bastards!
Also, when you start your car, you can't have a third party add-on take over your display to sell Ford ads. Unbelievable!
I can't wait to be able to put Ford stickers on the back of Toyota trucks, and use your Droid to advertise At&T!
Really? Productivity defined as?
Would an excel spreadsheet render properly on a Droid? Do you code in C# on the Nokia? Pray tell, what forms of productivity do you increase, Almighty one?
I was living in Rome, Italy, and was walking near the main train station, one of the worst areas in the city for thieves. The left back pocket of my jeans was cut open.
I've never carried my wallet in my back pocket since.
Overdue? Does my wallet have memory?
But I take your point: some people are just that dumb. But MOST people aren't, and for them, jotting down a password or password mnemonic and keeping it in their wallet is way better than making a sunflower. Combine that with a strategy that limits the number of passwords and login names, and you have a pretty robust situation.
Check out Bruce Schneier's commments on this subjct if you haven't already.
I'm 52 and haven't had my wallet stolen since 1969. Not a big security risk. In any case, you can obfuscate them, or simply not complete them or any other relatively straightforward way of not writing out "Bank of America, acct # xxxxxxxx, pw=asdf". Most pickpockets will simply take the money and dump the wallet in the nearest trashcan.
And if your wallet is stolen, you'll know about it, presumably. Then you have to figure out some new passwords, not before.
