Apparently, I'm using more modern version of Windows, than you've got. It's NT4 and has the feature you've mentioned. Check it out.
True, but not as transparent as I'd like it. I'm in, once they get GPU virtualization performance as the CPU one... or just move all SIMD logic into CPU and standardize instruction set.
It's getting there: as earlier command prompt OS and UI shell earlier were (more) separated, right now hypervisor and OS are individual products. Wait 5 years...
For now you can use UAC/sudo, non-root user accounts or Sandboxie and its alternatives.
Sounds suspiciously Apple-like. iPhone apps do this very thing.
No shit Sherlock: sandboxing, emulation, memory and hardware virtualization, CPU ring modes are all Apple inventions from 1970s and Windows 7 you're browsing from right now has its code base from Apple Lisa of that era.
Like everyone else I hate the security issues of Flash and think that for simple things like web forms, pull-down menus and video players designers should switch to HTML5. However there's no good alternative for web games.
Though there's clearly some progress, I have yet to see playable games in HTML5. All we have right now are few conceptual proofs. Google's pacman doesn't count: it lags and I'm pretty sure took 20 times more time to develop than its Flash alternative.
Interesting idea. I'm more for employers covering individual employee's student loan rather than public fund approach. Students from your local techie school should be more affordable to employer than some high flying business/law/med grads.
Some employers right now are doing it, but government can be more encouraging here. Instead of paying off interest for active students, even ones who wont get a related job.
Am I the only one who thinks the more slashdotters are on iPads, the better? It's way easier to troll with real keyboard, like I'm doing right now.
To be fair a good percentage of those being brought up as Muslims are being taught that it'd be an honor to kill a few infidels like Matt and Trey.
You mean via the same mechanism where you type information into 'Bing', and then 'Bing' responds with your search results?
No, I meant web forms, not Bing.
Most people don't type in 100 character URL's (I don't know of any) they either have it bookmarked, or they search for it via, you guess it, the search engine like Google, Bing, or whatnot.
Yeah and most of they use AOL keywords anyway...
That's not true, if they wanted to keep it anonymous, they wouldn't send session cookie with each request. Yet they do. Session id is not required for auto-suggestions.
Once again they don't just receive everything you type in address bar, they also associate it with your session.
They (M$) do collect this information locally if you have form auto-completion. But they don't send anywhere, unlike google.
What's so hard to understand about this problem? Most users want to use suggestions only for their searches, not URLs they enter. Chrome only allows toggling suggestions for both.
This is clearly another case of too many mad scientists, and not enough hunchbacks.
